Products I can’t live without | What can’t you live without?

April 12, 2012

There are a few products I use religiously. No matter what new products I get to replace them I always find myself reverting back to these. It’s great to follow trends and keep trying new things, but there is some value in sticking with what works. Especially with skincare, if you change your moisturizer or serum every month then you’ll never see the benefits. (however, if after a few days of bad reaction to something, change immediately).

These products are fantastic products that work for me. I have very dry skin, am medium toned and tan very easily. Even if you fall into these brackets, what works for me, might not work for you. That’s the thing with beauty, everyone is different

Here’s what I can’t live without right now:


1. The Balm Balmshelter Tinted Moisturizer.

2. Estee Lauder Advanced Night repair serum.

3. Avon Supershock Max Mascara

4. Tweezerman iLashcomb

5. Smith’s Rosebud Salve

6. Nivea sun light feeling face fluid

7. Avon Glazewear Glitter Sparkle lipgloss in violetta

Some of these were such random finds that now spend every day in my handbag.

What are the products you can’t live without?

          There are always those. I’m so tempted to shop online but it’s so hard to differentiate whats crap and what’s worth the shipping!

            I know! that’s why I like shopping for beauty products when i visit another country or ask my friends find me some :)) When it comes to skincare ,I don’t have Lush to go to so I try to make my own facials and buy organic products :)
