5 Beauty Products I've Rediscovered | Beauty

Beauty Essentials

Today I am having a little chat about some things that I honestly forgot how much I loved. Any Beauty Blogger knows that we all just end up buying the newest products all the damn time so we end up with way more than we actually need which means we just forget what we actually have. So I have started to get rid of some of my out of date products or stuff I just never use which means I am actually finding all these hidden gems in my own stash. Let's get started with something I just used every damn time...

The Beauty Blender
Technically not a product but a tool, I got the beauty blender in a Birchbox bloody ages ago and I probably used it a couple of times and then it kind of went to the back of my shelf and never used it again until a few weeks ago and oh my god. It really just blends everything so effortlessly, even on my neck. I don't use heavy foundation only Sleek Make Up CC Cream (massive fan) which admittedly is a light coverage kinda foundation thang but it looks so nice. I haven't tried the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge but I'm pretty tempted just to see IF there is a difference between the two. 

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer
Now, this little concealer I have not used for YEARS! I used to use it all the time but I kinda moved onto more expensive things and forgot all about it. I'm trying to reduce the amount of money I am spending on make up and when I was in Superdrug I saw the Lasting Perfection Concealer and thought I may as well give it a go and I remembered not only why I loved it so much but also why all the bloggers are still banging on about it. Seriously fantastic coverage, glad this little think is back in my stash, 

A bit of a broad term I know but I think I just got out of the habit of highlighting my face, I mean in the last two years contouring is like a MUST for me but highlighter was always a bit hit and miss and only really when I could be bothered but I found my little Blushing Hearts blush/highlight and thought oh I'll just whack a bit of highlight on today and it completely change my face! All of a sudden my face just looked bright and full of life. The only thing I would say about this highlight is it's rather sparkly so I have got my eye on the Makeup Revolution Highlighter Radiance Palette - so we'll see. 

Clay Face Masks 
Until recently I kinda forgot about the wonderful things a clay face mask can do, I kind of became obsessed with the exfoliating face masks which of course are great but can be really harsh to your skin. You guys will know that I have already bought the L'Oreal Purity Clay Mask and to be honest it has kind of swayed me back into using clay masks again!! 

Setting Powder
I bought the travel sized Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder from Sephora for no other reason than because it was bloody cute...yes guys, I am that kinda girl I like miniature everything! Once I bought it I kinda didn't know what to do with it as the puff thing it comes with just wasn't working for me, so I used it a couple of times and it found it's way to the back of my make up stash. Recently I spotted it and just though oh I'll give it a whirl with my A04 Spectrum Brush and my god what a difference it makes. This powder has the most wonderful finish an almost blurs out all your little pours, just fab! I'm glad I have rediscovered this little gem again.

What products have you fallen back in love with?


  1. I adore the L'Oreal Clay Masks!! The RT Complexion Sponge is a bit different from the Beauty Blender but I actually enjoy it more - I would recommend checking one out for sure.

  2. I've never tried sponges for foundation, I really ought to though because I just use my fingers at the moment and I am curious as to what the difference will be like. I've never really used highlighter either so if you do get that MUR one, you'll have to do a post on it for me (pretty please). :)

    1. I think you should try it out! I would say make sure you wet it before hand, properly squeeze out all of the water so it isn't actually wet, but a little damp, it works wonders!! If I do dear, I shall let you know!xx
