It's been a while since I've done one of these posts, however thanks to a mass decorating session I've been unable to get to quite a lot of my beauty products, so as a blessing in disguise I've had no choice but to make do with what I've been able to reach. However the positive is that I've found quite a few unloved products and made more of an effort to start using them and remembering why I loved them so much in the first place. One product which has been a lifesaver while decorating is Clarins Beauty Flash Balm - which I actually use as a heavy duty moisturiser. Now I know that this isn't what the product should be used as, but trust me - try it as a moisturiser and you can thank me later. When it comes to decorating I normally end up with more paint on me than the walls. Tip of the day for you - apply this before starting and no paint sticks to your face - genius.

My skin has been a bit of a nightmare recently, so I've been reaching for Ren Invisible Pores Detox Mask which is one of my holy grail masks. I always feel that when I use this, that my skin feels and looks more healthy. However it is worth noting that this also helps bring spots to the surface, so if you have a big night out or an important event, don't use this the week before as you may end up with a spot (or two). Keeping with the skin care theme, Kiehls Creamy Eye Treatment again is my holy grail eye cream. I've already wrote a full review of this here, yet for me no other eye cream works as effectively as this.

I've already raved about Pureology Strength Cure Restorative Mask* here and I'm still really enjoying using it. My hair looks and feels in a much better condition and I have started to notice some growth where there'd been snapping. If you suffer from dry/damaged hair, I'd really recommend this. Recently I've been neglecting Black Orchid for Tom Ford Noir - if you are a fan of heavy scents but don't want something as strong as Black Orchid for during the day, I'd highly recommend this. I love it that much I've already got a back up of this ready.

Two make up products have made the cut recently - first up is NYX Blush in Angel which I wrote about in my favourite peachy blushes post (link). With the exception of nights out this is the only blush which I have been reaching for lately. Initially I was wanting this used up - however I do think I would repurchase it once it's gone. Finally Charlotte Tilbury 's Eyes to Memorise in Mona Lisa, is my go to eye shadow to complement my green eyes. I'm planning on doing a full review on this and a couple of other Charlotte Tilbury items soon, however this is the ultimate long lasting shadow - once it's on, its on. Bit of a long post there - if you made it to the end, well done.
