Best-loved beauty: September 2014

Considering I don’t consider myself a beauty pro—compared to the many #bbloggers—I’ve found myself enjoying talking about it, hence a new series about products I’m currently liking: best-loved beauty.

As the temperature drops I’m keeping chapped lips at bay with a trusty Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm* (my favourite shade is Rose) and also enjoying bareMinerals’ Pretty Amazing Lip Colour* in Courage; it’s the perfect “my lips but better”, or #mlbb as the cool kids call it, and I love the non-drying texture of these not-quite-lipsticks-not-quite-lipglosses.

Emu Oil Well Moisturising Eye Cream. I’ve used anti-aging eye products for about 10 years (prevention is better than cure) and while I haven’t yet noticed fine lines I do have stubborn dark circles that no amount of sleep shifts.

This cheap little pot has been part of my daily skincare regime for 6 months and I’m shocked that it’s somehow managed to noticeably fade the dreaded dark circles.


I’m a huge salt spray fan, even more so now I’ve cut down on heat-styling, and while I wasn’t blown away by label.m sea salt spray* initially I was actually just used to another brand; with label.m’s product, more is more.

It makes my barnet so big that when I was recently out to dinner with friends one joked that we could steal things from the restaurant by hiding it in my hair.

    1. At first I didn’t like it but I’d been using another brand that didn’t need you to use quite as much product – you need to spray a lot of this but then it works great! I still think my previous salt spray smelt better, though.
