I'm always interested to know the tried and tested products that people go back to again and again. Things that I buy repeatedly are:

Avene Soapless Gel Cleanser
Estée Lauder Daywear Bb cream
Estée Lauder Doublewear Concealer
Nars Velvet Matt lip pencil in Dolce Vita
Clinique Even Better Foundation
Body Shop Shea Butter Shower Cream
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream
Boot Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Cleanser/Toner

I am still looking for a holy grail light moisturiser that won't break me out. Am currently trying Clinique Moisture Surge which seems to be doing the trick. No spots yet...

Well I have just gone back to Anne French cleaning milk - use this on and off a lot and the Garnier misceller (however you spell it) the golden coloured one oil in water thingy, plus the Nivea dual one for eye make up. I always also have some simple cleanser on the go - not the gel - the one in the bottle. I have also bought the moisturiser from Simple again after a gap. The small pot Vital vitamin or something?

Cetaphil face wash

Estée Lauder - daywear moisturiser for dry skin, lip liner in spice, double wear light foundation.
Benefit they're real mascara.
L'Oréal micellar water with the pink cap.
Waitrose essential bath foam - 750ml for £1.10. Amazing quality for the price.

*ggirl - I have a tester of the Clarins Lotus Facial oil. It's amazing stuff - I'm not sure if my skin could handle it more than a couple of times a week. How often do you use yours? Am thinking of asking for some for Christmas.

stormnigel Sat 11-Nov-17 16:52:11

I’ve been wearing a particular no 7 eyeshadow in the day time most days since I was 15. ‘Wheatsheaf’ specifically. They have just started messing about with the names and colours and now I can’t find it anywhere and have none left sad

GoldSpot Sat 11-Nov-17 16:53:47

I think I'm going to give up - my brain is toast. It's the lotus oil I am thinking of buying. blush

ggirl Sat 11-Nov-17 16:56:40

GoldSpot I use it most nights and some mornings depending on how much my skin needs plumping.
I have both the blue orchid and the lotus and swap and change as my skin is drier in the winter.
