Inspired by 'Beauty products you regret . . . ' let's share beauty products you love!

Clinique 7 Day Scrub - inexpensive, smooths dry skin on my face, make up always sits better after I have used it, always use in the shower otherwise fine granules end up in my hair

Mac Studio Fix Foundation - used it for years, great coverage, tried others but always come back to this

Aveeno - the only cream that sorts out my eczema

Clean & Clear face wash - the only thing that keeps my spot prone skin under control

Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream. Can be used for so many things. Years ago I read that no supermodel travels without it - I have to confess that I rushed out and bought one!

Lanolin for lips. Only thing that works for me.

percheron67 please enlighten me as to what 8 hour cream can be used for. All I can think is cuticles. It is so chemical smelling, I can't imagine it on lips and it seems too petroleum jelly like to use on my hands or face. What do people use it for?

SomeLikeItTepid Thu 13-Feb-20 20:30:24

Ooooh, following this thread.... I love a good beauty find.

The Body Shop Chamomile cleansing balm feels lovely used with a warm cloth at the end of the day. Also can't do without a massive tub of Nivea Soft, I use it on my body and face and my skin has never looked better 👍

Yy to dermalogica microfoliant.

Fanola purple shampoo is peerless.

Charlotte Tilbury got a lot of bad press on the other thread but the flawless filter is my holy grail product.

ironicname Thu 13-Feb-20 21:16:45

Aurelia cleansing cream, it's very expensive, but lasts a year. It smells as if you're in a spa and does a super job of removing make up etc.

percheron67 Thu 13-Feb-20 21:21:39

damnthatanxiety. Hello. It definitely has got an odd smell.! More herbal than floral. I think. It is very useful for use with eczema, cuticles, lip gloss (hold nose if preferred!) sunburn, and chapped skin. I also use, sometimes, on elbows and knees. More since Baby Bottom Butter has disappeared. Hope this helps.

Honeybee85 Thu 13-Feb-20 21:22:31

Crabtree & Evelyn handcream: such lovely smells and package plus very moisturizing

Bottega Veneta perfumes: love their scents, very classy, luxury and unusual

Rock & Ruddle hairbrush: my hair is dry and frizzy and this brush tames it

MAC Lust lipglass: MLBB gloss since I first discovered it 16 years ago

Dante Nesti soap: just love luxury Italian soaps

Kiehls Ultra Facial Moisturizer: does a great job!

Eucerin moisturizer spf 30 - around $12 but works far better on my skin than a gazillion high end moisturizers I’ve spent hundreds on, tried a few times and thrown out because they make me break out or just plain do nothing.

The Ordinary Buffet serum - cheap as chips and far more effective than many much more expensive serums

Maybelline Great Lash mascara - never found another I like as much.

Hourglass Ghost Edit Ambient Lighting palette - spendy but so worth it, the colours are gorgeous and it’ll last me ages.

YSL Touché Eclat All In One Glow tinted moisturizer - I was given a generous sample by a sales assistant when I bought some perfume. I went back and bought the full size a week later. Again it’s spendy but It’s amazing, the tube lasts for ages, it gives a beautiful medium coverage which doesn’t cake, flake or budge for hours, makes my skin look fresh, and hydrated all day so it’s replaced every other foundation I had.

L’Oreal True Match concealer - it’s just brilliant.

Charlotte Tilbury mascara (the best I ever used - it was free and will never be able to afford another)
