There are some products that you discover, which just make your life so much easier.
Mine, are as follows:
1. Dermalogica – Overnight Clearing Gel
If you are one of those people that have tried every thing known to man for acne, this is it, well almost! I dont suffer for any major acne, but I noticed during my pregnanct that I was getting more and more prone to clusters of breakouts on my cheeks and chin. I tried everything from natural home remedies to the washes and finally decided that I needed to spend a little more to get results. It’s a bit pricey at £34.00 (gorgeousshop.co.uk) (a bit more if you buy retail), but its well worth the money. I used it twice a day, in the morning before applying moisturizer and in the evening right before going to bed. It has worked absolute wonders in about a month and a half’s time. If you have really severe acne, try this along with the corresponding face wash, but if it doesnt help, there is always medication (oxytetracycline) which not many are aware of! It’s a 3 month antibiotic course which will drastically clear even the most severe acne however it does have it’s side effects therefore only for the worst case scenarios!
2. Sally Hansen Insta Dry Anti-Chip Top Coat
It would be a rarity that I be seen without my nails done, whether it’s gels, acrylics or just polish on my natural nails. However, I absolutely dread waiting for nails to dry and becuase of my impatience, sometimes never bother with top coat…until this beauty that is!! This is the mother of all nail products! Top Coat which is safe to touch within 2 minutes, and I literally mean, I can go and wash dishes without ruining the nails! This will come most handy post pregnancy
I even take it to my nail salon!
3. Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hour Lipstick
I just bought this a few days ago in Coral and Plum, and love it. It’s a pain to top up lipstick, especially if they are bold colours, at work and this has so far proven super effective. I love the plum, as it’s not too bold, but actually quite natural making it perfect for the office. It stays on for ages, and in fact, it looks better after a few hours of wear I would say. They of course have an array of colours but I decided to experiment with some wilder (yet still lovely to wear) colours!
4. Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
Hands down the best neutral earthy palette around especially if you’re in a hurry. I don’t really wear anything on the eyes on a day to day basis, however sometimes, especially for the office, I can just pop on a single colour on the lid and be on my way Amazingly pigmented and the shimmer isn’t ostentatious or in your face. Worth the pretty penny that it costs! The brush that comes with it is also super high quality and not the tacky spongey applicators which will never do you any good!
