Anyone who knows me knows I have a slight beauty product addiction. I absolutely love having a natter about these little lotions and potions with girlfriends and can often be found covered in lashings of beauty gunk frightening the heck out of my baby daughter who's just burst into the bathroom (as well as my boyfriend who always says: 'what the hell is that…). Yes it's not controversial, it's not politics and no it doesn't really matter a great deal BUT it is cute mindless banter which I am more than happy to engage in!
So my pretties, I have compiled a little list of my current faves just for my lady bears out there who wish to engage in bootie chat and would be more than interested in your recommendations so we can discuss it all well into the night!!!!
For a good old scrub I am devout Caudalie Deep Cleansing exfoliator and love love Clarins Doux Peeling cream which works miracles.Toners I like are again Neil's Yard Rehydrating Rose Toner Or Khiel's Cucumber Herbal Toner Or just good old plain Aloe Vera preferably straight from the plant for when skin is harassed further details. As I am into my thirties I have now persuaded myself I need the S word…serum serum serum. I like Sesderma Vit C Serum recommended to me by a spanish goddess and Estee lauder Advanced Night Repair when cash flow is flowing or when walking through duty free feeling the jet lag already!
Next I wait, i wait for it all to sink in and go for the moisture surge! I don't like anything too heavy so go for Jurlique Balancing Day Cream or Dr Hauschka Quince Day Cream or Avene Hydrance Optimale Legere.
Make up is not my thing much but I will mention three things I tend to do super quick. My friend got me into Nars Velvet Matte Lip pencils which are the shiz ..no amount of kissing, drinking that er water, chatting will shift this stuff and it's totally foolproof, I have it in Damned which is exactly that. Next up is RMS 'Un' Cover Up which does a bit of everything and is coconut oil based and full of pure clean ingredients so double points. I like a good play around with an eyebrow pencil never knowing if I have created a discreet dramatic look or gone way too Frida K for my neighbourhood but fun is what shall be had when allowed to own an eyebrow pencil and I use Eyeko Brow Liner .
For my hair, I like all Jason Aloe Vera range as well as Faith in nature Coconut shampoo and conditioner which are full of the natural good stuff. I do however reach for the best dry shampoo every once in a while and Klorane Shampooing sec, is ace stuff. I am also really into Argan oil which is nice to leave on overnight, I use one from a french supermarket but any will do. Klorane also do a lovely Mango Butter Leave in cream which hydrates all the hay hair and smells like holidays.
I don't use deodorant really as I think that stuff's poison but I will spritz a little Neal's Yard Lavender & Aloe Natural deodorant when sweatiness calls.
Oh and for a great muscle rub, I use Badger Cayenne & Ginger Muscle rub after an Epsom Salts Bath which saw me through my TT training and is much better for you than China gel!
Ok I'm done., and don't forget to keep the mind groomed and polished first and foremost.
