7 Products That Rekindled My Love For Beauty.


In recent months, I have been stuck in a bit of a beauty slump. Applying my make-up in the morning and putting effort into my beauty routines has lately become more of a tedious chore than something that I usually thoroughly enjoy. So in a bid to rekindle my love for beauty, I decided to go back and rediscover some beloved products, as well as add some new pieces to my collection.

Pixi Glow Tonic:
Without a doubt, skincare is by far my favourite part of my beauty routine. Nothing makes me more excited than discovering a product that works wonders for my skin. Over a year ago, I gave in to all of the rave reviews and decided to purchase Pixi Glow Tonic - since then, I haven't looked back. I recently shared a more in-depth review about the beautiful exfoliating tonic, yet I can't help but give it another mention. Having recently repurchased it, I have fallen back in love with skincare and putting effort into my routine. It's just one of those products that I wouldn't like to be without.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream: Another miraculous skincare product that I have been loving comes in the form of the Ultra Facial Cream from Kiehl's. I found myself in the market for a new moisturiser and after an abundance of recommendations I decided to give Kiehl's a try. It came down to a toss up between the facial cream and the moisturiser, but I preferred the heavier texture yet lightweight feel of the cream. I have combination skin, and I can confidently say that this moisturiser has worked wonders for me. My skin feels soft, supple and nourished after application, and it takes just a handful of moments to absorb beautifully. A little goes a long way with this facial cream, so even the smallest size of tub is guaranteed to last for a long while.

Bleach London Reincarnation Mask: Every now and again, I find myself gravitating back towards this product and every time I do, I fall in love all over again. I will be the first to admit that I can be incredibly lazy with my hair - maintaining gorgeous, luscious locks just isn't something I'm great at, so when I find a product that can do all of the work for me, nothing makes me happier. I first used this product around two years ago when my hair was bleached, as this deep conditioning treatment works to hydrate and repair dry and damaged hair. I recently repurchased it as my hair was feeling less than lacklustre after a new application of colour, and each time I use it, it breathes new life into my otherwise dull and dreary locks. It leaves my hair feeling silky and gives it that boost of nourishment that it longs for. I've started to use this product at least once a week and my hair could not be more thankful for it.

Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette: As soon as I spotted my beautifully talented friend Isabelle using this product to create a number of looks, I knew that I had to have it. There's nothing that makes me quite as excited as a new highlighter, but this drugstore gem is on another level. For £10, this product is a steal for the quality you receive. The palette includes three silky powder highlighters and one cream formula. Each shade is incredibly pigmented and they all have unbelievable staying power. I'm not one to shy away from dousing myself in highlight, and I've received so many compliments since introducing this product into my routine. For such an affordable price, it's impossible to resist.

Nars Copacabana Illuminator:
While on the topic of highlighting products, another product that I have recently rediscovered is the Nars Copacabana Illuminator. Over the past few weeks I have been reaching for it more and more, subtly adding it into my make-up rountine by mixing a small amount into my foundation. This helps to give your complexion a naturally radiant and dewy glow. Of course, this versatile product can also be used over foundation for a more defined glow.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer: Is there anything more satisfying than finding a holy grail beauty product for an incredibly affordable price? Collection's Lasting Perfection Concealer has been a long-time staple in my make-up bag. It's infamous amongst beauty lovers for its incredible lasting power and impressive high coverage, concealing flaws and imperfections with just a few swipes.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Cannes': Given a special mention in a recent post, I simply cannot get enough of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, particularly in the shade 'Cannes'. This lip product is a recent purchase of mine, but I haven't stopped wearing it since getting my hands on it. Cannes is a beautiful pink-toned mauve shade with incredible pigment and a beautiful matte finish. At just £5.50, these lip creams are an undeniable bargain and I can't hide my desire to get my hands on the entire collection.
