There are quite a few ‘essentials’ I’m in need of at the moment, so I thought it would be interesting to compile them in a wishlist post. Everyone has their different meanings for essentials, but these just happen to be what I’m calling essentials at the moment.
Tangle Teezer The Original
My first Tangle Teezer’s life is coming to an end, mainly due to my super knotty hair and being dropped on the floor so many times during brushing. The bristles are all bending and the pink brush part is coming away from the purple back, so I definitely think it’s time for a new one! I can’t live without my Tangle Teezer, they really are incredible brushes when you have horrifically knotty hair like me.
Lush Catastrophe Cosmetics Face Mask
Lush face masks are an absolute treat, but I always used to forget to use them when I used to buy them during my A-Levels (probably the stress haha). I think now I’d remember to use the whole tub within the right amount of time and I’d love to try Catastrophe Cosmetic again. It’s great knowing you can put a fresh face mask on without any nasties in it!
Bondi Sands Self-Tanning Foam Dark
I currently use the Light/Medium Foam and the Dark Lotion, however I prefer the colour that the dark tan gives and the formula of the foam. So I think a wise decision would be to buy a mixture of the two. I love tanning in warmer weather when it’s too hot to keep my legs under wraps, so I think I’ll be buying this before I give up tanning for winter.
MAC Studio Fix Powder
This is more of a luxury ‘essential’. In all honesty, I just need powder and Rimmel Stay Matte is not cutting it. I’ve seen a lot of people using this powder and it looks really good. I also like the idea of how you can use it by itself, so I’d definitely like to pick this up at some point this year.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip-brow Pomade
Again, this is a luxury ‘essential’. It just looks really good and I’d love to have brows that are on-fleek haha. At the moment I’m just using powder to fill in my brows, but I’d love to have the more defined brows that this pomade gives.
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser
This is one of my favourite cleansers, especially for a night-time cleanse. I’d love to stock up on this, especially before winter when it’s quicker to apply this to your face and rinse it with a warm damp muslin cloth than it is to do a proper cleanse!
