who is she blog, best of 2013 beauty products
Trying to choose my favourite products of 2013 has been a bit tricky, sure there's products I use which I love, however trying to narrow them down to absolute favourites has been a bit of a pain in ze butt. Doing FABB has given me the opportunity to be able to try out and interact with lots of new brands, however only one FABB product has made the cut.

Personally the major skincare revelation over the last year has been micellar waters and I've already tried Bioderma, B Pure, L'oreal and I'm a massive fan. Like everyone at times I can't be bothered to properly cleanse etc (more so after a night out when I'm slightly worse for wear) some of this on cotton wool and jobs a good un. I think this is a product in future I'd be lost without. Talking about cleansers, my cleanser of choice has to be Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser which makes my face feel squeaky clean, cleaner than clean, cleaner than all the faces in the land. I might even put this out there... its better than Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish.

Tom Ford Black Orchid perfume has been one of my go to fragrances last year, normally reserved for nights out, I've found myself reaching for this more and more on a daily basis. Its strong enough to last all day without reapplying and I've noticed that my car smells of it too. Through the blog is where I've developed my love affair with my eyebrows and after a disaster in Glasgow I needed a quick acting growth product to help my brows. In a nutshell (a review is coming) Ardell Brow and Lash Growth has been amazing - I've started doing the programme again before getting my brows done on 1st February and I'm going to get photos of how much its worked in 30 days. Its less than a fiver from eBay too.

I've started to shun away from wearing foundation other than nights out and I've been reaching for Mac's MSFN in Medium Plus (no tan) and Medium Deep (tan) to make me look half human without looking overdone. I think once these are used up I might venture into trying Rimmel powders as you see nothing but good reviews. Eye care again has to be Kiehls Creamy Eye Treatment which keeps my eyes hydrated and attempts to keep away the lines and wrinkles.

This year my hair has been red, dark brown, practically black and now and at a light chocolate brown/chesnut colour added to that stress, my hair hasn't been in that much of a good condition. Since recieving Osmo's Wonder 10 product* my hair is slowly but surely returning to its former glory. 2014 is going to be the year I really focus on looking after my hair... I may even get some of it chopped off, instead of the world's smallest trim. Last but no means least is nail polish - like everyone I got a bit excited with Barry M's Gelly range and this aqua/turquoise has practically been living on my toe nails ever since. Finally as OPI Nail Envy doesn't work on my nails I needed something stronger and managed to pick up a Dr Lewinns Renunail pack up from Duty Free - this has transformed my nails and since using this (September) I've had two nails splitting and that's it, a full review will be coming soon.

Where did 2013 go too??
