Top 5 Beauty Products

Thanks to Kate Takes 5 as always for the great idea!

1. Vaseline Lip Therapy Original 
I carry a pot of this everywhere I go, it helps keep my lips smooth and kissable and having soft lips definitely is a confidence booster. It's also handy for when we're out and about and our girlies ezcema is looking particularly sore, just a little dabbed on helps ease it until we get home.

2. No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream for Dry/Very Dry Skin
I discovered this a couple of weeks ago and I'm loving it!
As my girls are getting older I'm getting less time to put any make up on, especially when it's just us three in the house so this has definitely been a God send. I specially love that it comes in three different skin ranges so I'm able to pick which one suits me most.

3. St Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub
The best facial exfoliator I know of, my Mummy told me about it and I'll be passing it onto our daughters when they're old enough also.

4. Max Factor Masterpiece MAX Mascara
My eyelashes are quite dark and long anyway but I love having dramatic eyelashes because I've been complimented on my eyes since I was no age and as I sometimes don't like my smile my eyes need to speak for me and draw any attention away from my mouth.

5. Sudocrem
I know this is the 'in' product for celebrities but we've been using this for years, not only is it good for nappy rashes but it's definitely a panacea for all ills, or skin complaints in this case, everything from dry skin to spots, it's there!


  1. I still don't 'get' the BB creams. I like the idea of them - but not as a foundation. Need to do more research!

    1. I thought I was requesting a sample of the Garnier BB Cream when it was coming out and ended up getting a full size bottle and was completely surprised by how it made my skin look so when No7 brought one out I just had to give it a go. I think it's much better than tinted moisturisers but feels like a liquid foundation and the fact it's quick and easy makes it all the better for me.

  2. Sudocrem is fab! As is vaseline.
