Current Favourites

After initially feeling ambivalent about this product, after a week in 32 degree heat on holiday, this V05 Miracle Concentrate has saved my hair from Straw City.  I apply half a dropper's-worth before blow drying (and using any other styling products) and it leaves my hair soft and shiny but not greasy.  
This Save the Nail 45 Second Top Coat was an impulse buy from Boots when I ran out of Seche Vite.  I didn't have particularly high hopes but actually, it's pretty excellent.  It's a runnier consistency than SV which, depending on your application technique could be good or bad.  I like it though.
Nude nails, in particular Revlon Pink Nude.  It's totally perfect.
Despite having oily skin, I do get the occasional dry and dehydrated patch, so I like to apply this Moroccan Natural Argan Rose Serum* at night to combat them.  It smells nice (of roses, surprisingly) has a light, oily texture and sinks in quickly.  In the morning, my skin is glowy and dry patch-free.  Plus it's natural.  What's not to love?
Perricone MD Hypoallergenic Gentle Cleanser has become my go-to morning cleanser.  It's basically the plainest, simplest gel cleanser that cleans and soothes my skin leaving it redness-free and soft.  Perfect for sensitive and difficult skins.
Finally, and unusually for me, a lipgloss. This Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Nude Lilac was Mummy Pixie's but she didn't like it very much, so I swiped it before she could blink (I'm kind like that).  It's not a colour I would have chosen - it's a pinky lilac with gold specks - but it's actually really flattering, and I swear it makes my teeth look whiter.  The Lip Glacé's have a great texture; silky and not too sticky, and they last a long time as well.  I love.  You will love.  We will all love.
