Beauty Graveyard

Oskia London Renaissance Cleansing Gel

This cleanser is really good at removing makeup, even waterproof mascara but it seriously irritated my eyes. It was expensive, so I did finish the tube but I wouldn't buy it again.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

I love Micellar Water for removing makeup, its so quick and easy. If you are trying to wean yourself off makeup wipes this is the stuff you need, just pour some on a cotton pad and it will take off all your makeup. I'm not particularly fussy on the brand of Micellar Water but the Garnier one is by far the best value for money.

Kate Somerville Goat Milk

My beloved Goat Milk, why can you only be bought in America *cries into pillow*
I am really fussy when it comes to face moisturisers and because I have combination skin, I hate any that feel overly rich and heavy. Goat Milk is the perfect light consistency and I actually feel like my skin looks and feels better when I use this. 

Indeed Labs Hydraluron

I'm not even going to try and explain what this stuff does, I will leave it up to skincare expert Caroline Hirons. In summary though, I like it a lot!

Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel

I mention Yes To a lot on my blog because I think they are pretty unique in the fact that they are a natural organic brand but with cool modern branding. The range has all been repackaged and you can now finally get it in Boots! This eye gel had a lovely cooling effect when you applied it (great for de-puffing) and is great for younger skins or if you are just starting out with an eye cream and don't want anything too heavy.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo +

My skin saviour! A few months ago I was having a bit of a traumatic time with my skin, its not fun getting spots in your late twenties (to be fair its never fun, no matter your age!) Since using this every night before I moisturise, I have seen a dramatic improvement in my skin and now only suffer from the occasional spot (touch wood, touch wood!) I have lost count of how many tubes I have got through now!

Nivea Daily Essentials Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover

If I remember rightly, I gave this eye makeup remover a bit of a shitty review initially but since I haven't been wearing waterproof mascara it actually works really well. The bottom line, great for removing non waterproof eye makeup.

Yes to Carrots Nourishing Exfoliating Facial Cleanser

Another Yes To product, this time from their Carrots range. I really like to use a traditional gritty exfoliator in the shower so my skin feels really clean and the fact that this contains 99% natural ingredients is even better.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

I really think this concealer is over rated. Its too light  for decent spot coverage but not brightening enough for under eye coverage. I would pick the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer over this any day and its about a third of the price!

Illamasqua Brow and Lash Gel

God I love this brow gel. Keeps your eyebrows in place all day.

L'Oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation

This foundation has now won its way into my foundation hall of fame. It gives your skin the healthiest glow and feels lovely and light, not heavy at all. One of my all time favourite foundations. 

Burberry Lip Cover in English Rose

Lipstick is my thing. I feel naked without it and English Rose is my all time favourite, my perfect 'nude'. Of course I have already repurchased a fresh tube!

Hand Chemistry Heel Hydration Complex

This is definitely a case of TMI but I do suffer with dry feet! I saw this on a new display in Boots and was intrigued enough to give it a try. What appealed to me is that this promises to re balance below surface hydration, rather than focusing on removing the hard skin. This is quite pricey for a foot cream but is definitely the best I have tried. I have already bought a new tube.

Maison Martin Margiela Replica Beach Walk

If you have read my blog for some time you will know how much I love Maison Martin Margiela's Replica line of fragrances. Beach Walk is the perfect Summer scent and the name describes the scent perfectly. 

Soap & Glory Clean On Me

I do love the smell of this Soap and Glory shower gel and I love taking the minis away with me on holiday.

Bobbi Brown Almost Bare 

This is my signature scent, I've lost count of how many bottles of this perfume I have got through and if Bobbi Brown ever discontinued it, there would be some serious tears before bedtime. 

Lush Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub

I was seriously impressed with this body scrub from Lush. It worked so well because it was really gritty, my skin felt so smooth and soft after using this. It also smells like the beach, which makes it a winner for me. I would definitely buy this again. 

Zoya Remove +

My favourite nail polish remover and the only one I use because other brands just dry out my nails too badly.

Aussie Mega Shampoo

One of my favourite shampoos. Perfect if you are a greasy hair sufferer and want a shampoo that leaves your hair feeling really clean, without stripping out the moisture. 

Bumble and Bumble Hairdressers Invisible Oil Travel Set

I have actually used up two of these travel sets now. In the set you get a travel size shampoo, conditioner and primer. The shampoo and conditioner left my hair feeling so soft and bouncy and the primer acts as a detangler, leave in conditioner and heat protector all in one. I have already purchased the full size of the primer and will definitely buy the full size shampoo and conditioner at some point.

Lee Stafford Original Dry Shampoo

Having dark hair I struggle with dry shampoos, as I find they always make my hair look ashy. This Lee Stafford dry shampoo is one of the better ones I have tried and its also available in different shades depending on your hair colour.

Sanctuary Spa Body Butter

I think this was a left over smelly from Christmas! 

Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser

This is my new favourite body moisturiser, its not overly moisturising but its so quick and sinks in straight away. Ideal for people like me who find the whole moisturising process a chore!

Nivea Body Lotion Express Hydration

This was fine as body moisturisers go but I will be sticking to my Vaseline spray for the time being.
