Australian Bodycare Tea Tree Oil And Skin Wash
I first discovered tea tree oil when I began working at QVC in 1999, I was working behind the scenes on one of Alison's shows and she was talking about what tea tree oil could do for the skin. I often broke out in spots then and tea tree oil became a regular go-to product for me.
I still use it now, I also love the skin wash in the shower, it's fresh and clean smelling, brilliant for after exercise or on hot sticky days and I also still use tea tree oil on stubborn spots as and when they appear. These two are real favourites!
I've only been using face oils on a regular basis for the last two years I'd say. My skin definitely needs more on it now and I love the difference oils make to my skin, my colour is more even and my skin feel very hydrated. I love Decleor Neroli and have also recently been using AD Skin Synergy (very economical) and the A'kin Rosehip Oil.
SBC Collagen and Propolis Gels
I discovered the SBC range years ago now; again it was when I was working behind the scenes at QVC in the early 00's. It's rare for me not to have an SBC gel at home, I love Collagen and Propolis gels as they are water based, so not at all heavy and very refreshing.
They can also be used all over the face and eye area. The gels can be used as a moisturiser or a mask and sometimes I will also layer a gel with another moisturiser on top.
Alpha H Micro Cleanse
Alison Young shoved this in my face a few months ago and said "use this you'll love it", she wasn't wrong, I'm on my second bottle. It has just the right amount of physical exfoliant in it to help brighten my skin and improve its texture, I can instantly feel the difference after I have used the Cleanse. If you self tan this would be great to use beforehand!
Josie Maran Argan Oil
I discovered this product on a trip to the US. I have been using this 100% pure argan oil as a replacement for my moisturiser in real moments of crisis.
When my skin is feeling a little neglected and dry I turn to this product, it absorbs fast and conditions my skin and I really see the benefits when I awake the next morning with soft, glowing, vibrant and healthy skin.
This product is a real multi-tasker, after receiving the benefits this gave me on my face I took to using this to tame flyaways as well as helping with hard skin on the base of my feet. Look out for it coming back in stock very soon!
Nails Inc Pot Remover and Corrector Pen
On the go or just on the sofa, whenever I need a fix either way this product has really become a love affair of mine at the moment! Lets face it we all make mistakes when painting our nails, with one fell swoop the corrector pen corrects my mistakes, 100% does what it promises!
The pot remover is beyond ideal when I get the odd chip on an individual nail. The remover pot saves me from having to redo all my nails and helps me to just remover where needed!
ybf Automatic Brow
I don't think my brows would forgive me if I left the house without giving them some YBF loving! This pencil is so universal I wasn't sure if it would be right for me but my brows have never looked so tame!
This pencil strokes on without dragging the skin, the colour of the pencil can be used as hard or soft as you like and creates what looks like real hairs.
New CID four-piece Complexion Perfection Collection
A great value kit and the result is a glowing, flawless complexion to last you all day long. The primer as soon as it is applied gives a refreshing, cooling feeling and instantly gives me a nice radiance.
The foundation is my real favourite in the collection, its light weight but with amazing coverage, I always receive great compliments when I wear this foundation. The concealer has great componentry and is fully moisturising. A real love of mine this summer.
L'Occitane Hand Cream
I love the L'Occitane Hand creams. With shea butter, honey and sweet almond extract, really what more could make your hands feel protected and moisturised? It really is an all-time favourite of mine.
I also wouldn't be without the Mally mascara. It's one of my very favourite products and I find it just adds fabulous volume and really makes my eyes come alive.
Elemis Frangipani Shower Cream
The Elemis frangipani shower cream is just quite simply wonderful. It leaves my skin beautifully scented and feeling soft and supple.
