Im an obsessive compulsive beauty junkie...I love finding out what really makes skin a dewy glow...what to bail me out in an emergency (hello monster breakout!) ...and what doesn't live up to what it promises, as well as faithfully trying and testing the new.

I thought it would be fun to post a list of my 5 favourite must haves :

I really wanted to see what the hype was about this one, from beauty editors all over...so I left my regular moisturizer on hiatus and went for this...three days later I found myself buying the whole range..Its no secret that hyaluronic acid is a major plumping ingredient for lush skin...this gave my skin a rested glow and was a perfect base for my tinted moisturizer afterwards..If youre over 25 I absolutely recommend it.
Rodial's Glamtox day SPF 18
I cannot rave enough about this product for three reasons..It literally takes off every single dull cell on your face whilst the creamy chamomile base calms your skin and sinks deep in to leave you looking like youve literally just had an oxygen facial..apply your regular serum afterwards and be delighted at how your skin texture is pure velvet.
Sisley's Gentle Facial Buffing Cream.

Experience addiction like no other...This is the one product that whips your hair into a pure silk infusion..Love the scent too.
Alterna's Caviar Antiageing Seasilk Moisture Range.

Laura Mercier is just uber fabulous..her newest addition to her star Almond Coconut range is this divine hand cream. Its the cutest size and makes you want to keep moisturizing your hands all day...stock up on this for your purse...your car..the office.

Five minutes pre-shower dry body brushing daily is a religious must. It increases circulation and helps the body's natural detoxification process, helping in the fight against cellulite.This natural cactus brush is one of the best Ive tried. Because of its texture, make sure you run it lightly over skin and always towards your heart.
Elemis Body Brush.

Enjoy x

@Fastidious Babe :) xx
There are tons of great ones I can suggest..have you tried the new Nectar Thermique styling cream by Kerastase before a blowdry...seriously moisturizing and lush.
Philip Kingsley's new Elasticizer Extreme is a deeply hydrating pre-wash that you leave on half an hour before and OMG!!! Shu Uemura's range literally made me want to die and go to hair heaven! Try their moisture velvet range shampoo and conditioner or mask in the orange packaging.

@Nyxxie...I have a personalised list for you :) xx What is going on with that website of yours? I cant get access argh..miss you xx

I tried the kerastase heat activated cream, it was OK..im not a kerastase fan really! it doesnt work well with my hair for some reason. AND OMG! i totally forgot about shu uemura's shampoos! on my last trip i could have sworn there was something specific i wanted from shu uemura but couldnt remember, it was only now.. reading ur comment that i did lol Hmm we dont have them here so that's out! if anything else pops up in ur head just drop me a line, my tresses are in distress :(
