My Favourite Hair and Beauty Products



I thought it might be fun to share some of my favourite hair and beauty products of all time! I'm still using each and every product on this list and I love each of them. There is a real mix of high end vs. high street products, so hopefully there is something for everyone!


BEST HAIR BUYS

Having a best friend that is a super talented hairdresser can have its pros. She'll come over to hang out and end up cutting my hair if we get bored. She shows me how I should style my hair as well as showing me which products I should be using to have salon fresh looking hair every day. Because of this, a lot of these products are high end. She knows what she likes, and she knows what works. Who am I to argue?!




KERATASE RESISTANCE SERUM THERAPISTE

 This serum is an all in one. It's great for reducing the appearance of split ends, it seals and heals the ends of y our hair while also protecting your hair from heat up to 230°. I honestly adore how this product leaves my hair feeling. It's so softening and nourishing, I feel like my hair gets a real treatment every single time I used it.

HEAD JOG 72 BRUSH

What gal do you know that doesn't want bouncy voluminous hair? My friend recommended this brush for blow-drying my hair to create extra volume from root to tip. The barrel is ceramic, so it retains the heat and curls your hair like a curling iron if you use it just right. I could spend ages drying and shaping my hair. This brush makes it the easiest job, which is great for me since I have super thick hair.

SHU UEMURA TOUCH OF GLOSS MELT IN WAX 

This wax is amazing! It's not thick like a normal wax, but it's great for getting rid of frizz or fly away hairs. It's also got a slight shimmer to it, which adds a slight shine to your hair. It just takes your finished hair style that next step without being heavy and smells glorious! 

TANGLE TEASER THE WET DETANGLER BRUSH 

This brush is an absolute godsend! It's just like the tangle teaser we know and love, in that it works out all of your tangles and knots but it does so without hurting at all. For as long as I can remember, I've always had super knotty hair. I've struggled through brushing my hair for years in pain trying to work any tangles free. I have no idea how this brush works, or what it is about it that makes working out tangles a breeze, but I love it, and I'll never be without it.

BABYLISS VOLUME WAVES CURLING IRON 

Since I cut my hair off, I've curled my hair a lot more than I've worn it straight. It's just the right length to wear it kinda wavy, kinda messy and this curler is perfect for defining shape in a hurry. This curler gets super hot, but has multiple heat settings depending on what you want. It's great on those days that I just need to tidy my hair before leaving for the day. It's such a great tool.

BED HEAD COLOUR GODDESS SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER 

Although I'm a natural redhead, I decided that I wasn't ginger enough, so I dye it. I just like having more copper tones through my hair and I love having bright, vibrant ginger locks. To keep my colour looking its best I use this shampoo and conditioner. The colour never fades, my hair gets all the protection it needs and feels soft and smooth, like it isn't damaged at all.


BEST BEAUTY BUYS

When it comes to beauty products, I more often than not stick to more affordable brands. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good splurge on a product from time to time but a product has to be worth it for me to spend that little bit extra.


REVLON COLOURSTAY FOUNDATION

 I have used so many different foundation brands over the years. High end and high street, full coverage to sheer coverage, and nothing suits my skin as well as this amazing product from Revlon. I always grab the combination/oily version as that's my skin type and it's always a dream. I love the way it blends, it covers really well but you can still see my freckles. I can't fault this cheap but powerful option.


TARTE LIGHTS CAMERA LASHES MASCARA 

I first tried this mascara when I got a mini of it in a Christmas present, and my god, did it change my life! Not only does this mascara make my lashes look both thicker and fuller, but the brush is great for coating every lash, including the wee ones in the inner corners. I couldn't recommend investing in this mascara enough! It doesn't crumble off all over your face and it honestly lasts all day long. 


MORPHE 35T EYESHADOW PALETTE

I've had this palette for quite a while. I'd heard a lot of hype around Morphe's shadow palettes and I wanted to find out just how good they are for myself. I decided to go for the 35T because I tend to stick to more natural tones. I love the mix of slightly blush tones and browner earthy tones. I cause use this palette every day and create something entirely new. There are so many shades and the pigment is extraordinary. I'm definitely going to check some more of their palettes out in the future.

REAL TECHNIQUES MAKE-UP BRUSHES

These brushes are a great option for someone that wants a step up from a cheaper kit but  doesn't have the money to spend on a professional set. There is a brush for anything and everything, you'll end up wit a brush for each step of your make-up routine. I also adore the bold metals Real Techniques brushes which are aimed to semi-professionals. I just love how soft they are, they're easy to clean and pick up just enough product.


LIZ EARLE CLEANSE & POLISH HOT CLOTH CLEANSER

This was a blogger recommended product. I've always struggled with my skin. As a teen I'd have the worst break outs and I'd just hope my skin would behave itself as I grow. I was wrong, at 26 I still have struggles with my skin. But, this cleanser is great! It's gentle but powerful, it'll remove any trace of make-up or dirt on your face and leave you feeling fresh and light. My skin is a heck of a lot better since I started using this. This is my must have face product.

ELIZAVECCA MILKY PIGGY HELL-PORE CLEAN UP MASK

Remember buying peel off face masks as a teen for something fun to do at a sleepover? I know they're not exactly a higher end product, but this mask is amazing when you're trying to battle dry skin. It's exactly like all those charcoal masks we've seen all over the internet. It removes any dry, dead  skin but is equally gentle and leaves your skin feeling super smooth and soft. For the price, you just cant go wrong!

KAT VON D TATTOO EYELINER

This eyeliner is heavenly. I have really oily skin on my eyelids, and I've always struggled with trying to get liquid eyeliner to last a whole day without rubbing all over my face. This one, doesn't budge. I don't even need to use an eye-shadow or primer. This is my holy grail eyeliner and I can't fault it. I love the tip, I love that it's easy to hold like a pen and I just adore it. This is defiantly a product worth investing in.

MAYBELLINE SUPERSTAY 24 HOUR LIPSTICK

Is this honestly a surpise to anyone? Like most people I jumped on the liquid lipstick trend in a big way, and I adore Maybelline. Not only are they not drying, but there is such a huge collection of colours to choose from and they last all day! You're sure to find something you'll love. I have an ever growing collection and I adore them all. They're a great product for the price!

I hope this list helps you find a golden grail product! Are there any products that you'd recommend or cannot live without? I'd love to know!
