In the past year or so I have made many great beauty-related discoveries, some of which I spoke about in my Best Beauty Products 2015 video. Although I love trying out new beauty products, sometimes I discover a product which is too good to replace. So, today I’ll be sharing the 10 beauty products I will repurchase!
1. Soap & Glory ‘The Righteous Butter’
I’ve given various Soap & Glory products lots of love on my blog ever since I started out blogging in 2013. However, my favourite products from the brand are their body butters. ‘The Righteous Butter’ is the first Soap & Glory body butter that I ever tried out, and it is one of my favourites. It is scented with Soap & Glory’s fruity and floral ‘Original Pink’ fragrance, and contains shea butter and aloe vera to soothe and soften the skin.
2. Soap & Glory ‘Rich & Foamous’ Body Wash
Another firm favourite of mine from Soap and Glory is their ‘Rich & Foamous’ body wash, which I featured in a recent post. This body wash has a sweet scent which reminds me of freshly baked cookies, which lingers on the skin. It’s one that I love to use in my shower just before getting into bed, as I find the scent to be so comforting and perfect for this time of year!
3. Lush Eau Roma Toner Water
This will come as no surprise to my regular readers as I’ve spoken about this magical toner water from Lush several times before. The Eau Roma toner contains rose water and lavender water which help to calm any redness and hydrate the skin. I love spritzing this all over my face before going to bed at night as I find the lavender scent so calming.
4. Lush Frozen Bath Bomb
Another one of my favourite products from Lush is the Frozen bath bomb – review/demo here. This bath bomb was realised just last year, and it is incredible! Once dropped into the bath, this turns the water a beautiful blue shade with some pretty silver lustre. It also releases a gorgeous fresh, fruity scent which lingers on the skin for a good few hours!
5. MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation
I had my eye on this powder for ages, however I only actually got round to purchasing it last summer – and it definitely did not disappoint. Although this is on the pricier side, at £22, it is worth every penny! This mattifies the skin without looking cakey, adds coverage and makes my skin look so smooth. Additionally, you can use this instead of your foundation as it adds a decent amount of coverage on its own.
6. MAC Eyeshadow in ‘All That Glitters’ and ‘Woodwinked’
‘All That Glitters’ and ‘Woodwinked’ were the first two MAC eyeshadows I ever owned – and they are both still very well loved. ‘All That Glitters’ is a champagne-peach shade, and ‘Woodwinked’ is a warm antique gold shade. Both eyeshadows look gorgeous worn on their own or blended together, and can easily take you from a daytime to a nighttime look!
7. MAC Lipstick in ‘Brave’
This lipstick was so popular (and hard to get hold of) in 2015, however I’m so glad I managed to pick it up in the end. MAC Brave is a rosy-mauve neutral shade and has been my everyday go-to lipstick ever since I bought it. It’s the perfect shade to wear to work, and lasts reasonably well on the lips too. Best of all, it’s not drying on the lips at all and helps my lips look nice and healthy!
8. L’Oreal Superliner Perfect Slim Felt Tip Liquid Liner
Although I’ve been alternating between the L’Oreal Superliner Perfect Slim Felt Tip Liner and the L’Oreal Superliner Black Lacquer Waterproof, which is a classic liquid liner, I always seem to go back to the Perfect Slim felt tip liner as it’s so much quicker and easier to use. Although I find that the tip dries out faster than a classic liquid liner would, the formula is so pigmented and long-lasting. It’s great if you’re still starting out with liquid liner or haven’t got a steady hand, too!
9. Rimmel Lasting Finish 25Hr Nude Foundation
In my opinion, Rimmel make some of the best foundations available in the drugstore, and I have been a fan of their Wake Me Up foundation for a long time. However, I was looking for something a little less dewy and a little more long lasting – and I found that the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25Hr Nude Foundation is absolutely perfect for this.

10. L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil
This, along with the GHD Eclipse, has been my best hair-related purchase in a long, long time! The L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil is literally just like magic potion for your hair. Just 2 drops of this hair oil smoothed through the lengths of your hair instantly nourishes, smoothes and protects the hair from any heat applied to it – and it leaves my hair feeling so soft. This 100ml bottle cost just £9.99 and despite using it around twice a week since July, I haven’t even got half way through the bottle yet – it’s amazing value for money as well as being an all-round amazing product!
