Now and again, I find myself reaching for the same beauty products daily, so they become part of my routine! Today I wanted to chat about a few current favourites that have been staple products for me recently. I think these partly count as Spring beauty faves – since we have had a few sunny days I have definitely decide Spring is nearly here!
The Body Shop Skin Defence SPF 50 – This has been my most used beauty product this year, without a doubt. I reach for it everyday now. This is basically an SPF moisturiser, the best I have ever tried. It has SPF 50 which is perfect for use all year round to protect your skin. It has the most lightweight formula I have ever tried – it is quite a liquid formula so it glides easily over the skin and sinks in within seconds, to give smooth, protected skin. Honestly, this has become one of my all-time favourite skincare items and I can’t recommend it enough.
Kiko Highlighter in the colour 01 – This is so beautiful! This is a rediscovery of mine, I think I bought it last year, used it non-stop for a few months and ended up forgetting all about it Then a couple of weeks ago, I used it again and now I remember why I loved it so much. This is a lovely, white-gold based highlight that looks so pretty, against pale skin in particular. The formula is so smooth and finely milled that it just adds a beautiful glow. I’d really like to try more of the shades of the Kiko highlights.
EX1 Invisiwear foundation – This is the colour F100 which I use when I am wearing self tan. This foundation gives medium to buildable coverage, with good lasting power yet has the most natural, skin enhancing finish. I wouldn’t call it matte or glowy – it is a happy medium. They recently expanded to a much larger colour range, which has a different shade system – I have the colour 2.0 too, which is about an NC15 in MAC for reference. I have a full review with shade comparisons of this foundation on my blog already, so I’ve linked here.
Shay & Blue Atropa Belladonna Perfume – I actually got this perfume in my M&S Beauty Advent Calendar but I haven’t used it that much until now. This is a beautiful perfume for the day time, it is fresh and feminine, really elegant. I love the size of this, it is perfect to add into my bag or purse to use on the go. I just love mini things, so cute.
