It’s the end of 2014 and it’s gone by so quickly! I decided to do a round-up of my favourite products I discovered this year – I tried a LOT of products, so these are the best of the best!
La Roche-Posay Cicaplast – This has been amazing for my chapped areas. It’s soothing and protects raw skin until it’s ready to deal with the outside world. I’m a bit more partial to the Baume B5 version than the original – I find it a bit more nourishing, rather than just a barrier cream.
Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence – This is my new go-to facial sunscreen. I’m still looking for one with more UVA protection, but the texture of this is perfect. It doesn’t feel like sunscreen at all!
Obagi Professional-C* – Vitamin C has been the final piece of my anti-ageing puzzle (I’ve been using retinol and alpha hydroxy acids for longer).
Anatomicals* – This new range has the cheeriest shower products in cheeky packaging. It’s also pretty affordable and the products smell amazing!
Pretty Serious Undercover Mermaid* – This work safe polish was designed to my specs by Aussie indie brand Pretty Serious – I love it to bits.
Tender Love + Carry Caddy Cosmetic Pouch* – This came in a Violet box, and I’ve been using it since I unboxed it. It’s the perfect size and has lots of compartments!
Essence Bloom Me Up brushes – These are cheerfully coloured and pretty damn good. I end up reaching for them over my other brushes because they’re so eye-catching! I mostly use the powder brush and the blush brush (for creme blush).
Daiso Brush Detergent – The worst part of being a brush addict is washing your brushes. Daiso’s detergent makes it as un-painful as it’ll ever be (though not breezy enough for me to have cleaned the Essence brushes before this photo was taken).
That’s my 2014 list – what’s yours?
