I’ve never been one to spend a lot of money on make-up. Don’t get me wrong, I love to cake on my foundation but I don’t spend a huge deal of time putting my face on in the morning, and generally don’t spend a lot of dollar. I believe that what you eat and how you treat your skin is far more important than how you cover it up.
This isn’t your typical post about a morning routine post, because in reality sometimes I’m lazy and don’t bother using my toner everyday (naughty, I know – I’ll pay for it one day!). However, these are products that I completely adore, and I’ll continue using them for a long time.
Psst… just because you don’t see face wash or moisturisers on here doesn’t mean I don’t use them (obviously I wash my face, and I always moisturise!). I just haven’t found a brand that I’m super loyal to when it comes to those products, so they haven’t had the list. If you’ve got any recommendations, then please do send them my way!
Facial Cleansing Brush System
I’m a fan of exfoliating but all the products that I use make my face feel sticky, and I usually end up with it in my eyes (what is up with that!?). I switched to washing my face mostly just using warm water, soap and a flannel, and everything was fine. But I always wanted to try a cleansing system like the Clarisonic, so I figured I’d give it a whirl and see what it was like – was it really all it’s hyped up to be?
Apprehensive to spend over a hundred squid on something I didn’t know if I’d get bored of, I opted for a cheaper version from eBay. I have absolutely no regrets. It does what it says on the tin, and it’s a tenth of the price of a Clarisonic. I’m not saying it’s better, because I wouldn’t know – but for me, it’s great!
Tangle Teezer The Ultimate Hair Brush
I’m lucky enough to have long, wavy hair that almost reaches my bum! With that, I also have the daily battle of brushing out dreadlocks that accumulate near my scalp. It’s always been an absolute nightmare and genuinely took me hours to get my hair tangle-free, only to wake up with knots again the very next day.
Thank God, last year I received a Tangle Teaser for Christmas. It completely changed my daily routine, and literally worked miracles on my tatty locks. When the Ultimate hair brush was launched, I didn’t feel the need to upgrade my existing brush, but did anyway because it’s a bargain at £15. I’m dead glad I did, because the handle and extra surface area makes such a difference – best purchase EVER!
