Essence BB cream - I was pleasantly surprised with this. Combined with the Eco Tools Perfecting brush, it gives great, matte coverage. For only $8.20 you really can't go wrong.
Essence The Lash Curler mascara* - This is the first Essence mascara I've tried and I really like it. It gives a great curl that holds for half a day, which is better than most other curling mascaras I've tried.
Ulta 3 Special Effect Peek a Boo Purple nail polish - It is very rare for me to have painted fingernails. I just don't have time for the maintenance and I hate having chipped nail polish. When I saw the Essence watercolour polishes I had to buy one. They're a very sheer tint that can be worn alone or over the top of a white (or light) polish. I've been wearing two coats for a sheer tint that doesn't show chips easily.
Shore Soap Co Tea Tree Moisturizer stick - Moisturising sticks are a lazy/busy persons best friend. All I do is swipe it on and I'm done, I don't even rub it in. The bonus of this one is that it smells amazing, so I don't need to use perfume.
Subtle Energies Reviving body and hand wash* - My love of Subtle Energies is well known. They truly can do no wrong. I use the Reviving body and hand wash as a hand wash, if I put it in the shower Tiger would use it and it'd be gone in a second. I love the beautiful, fresh scent and how gentle this is on my hands.
The Body Shop Smoky Poppy* - Floral lovers, you need this in your life. It's limited edition so get it now whilst you can. I'm not normally a fan of deep/intense scents but this is a really sexy scent that I can wear without feeling like it's overpowering.
Maybelline Lychee Addict Baby Lips lip balm - This smells like cake! I know it's lychee flavoured but it smells like cake. I thought I might have been imagining it but I asked Emma and she agrees. Yum!
Eco Tools Perfecting brush - I saw this on iHerb (use code YUF175 to get a discount off your first iHerb order) and the thought of using a brush to apply BB intrigued me so of course I bought it. In the past I've always used my fingers to apply BB however I'm now a brush convert. Applying my BB with a brush gives a gorgeous, flawless finish. It also means that I can build up coverage in areas that need a little more help.
Du'it Foot and Heal Balm Plus -For the first time in my life I have a cracked heel. Ouch! The first few days it was so sore that it was waking me up at night and walking hurt. Since I've never had a cracked heel I didn't know how to fix it so I asked Tiger and he told me the secret is to moisturise it. I had no idea which moisturiser to use so I went with Du-it and I'm very glad I did. The crack is still there but my feet are a lot less dry, my foot isn't sore and it's healing nicely. Clearly it's time I started paying more attention to my feet!
