2013 Favourites

From beauty to skin care and all things in between, here is a quick look at what I’ve most loved in 2013!

Bath & Body
Lush Christmas Collection Bath Bombs
I must have tried almost every single Christmas edition bath bomb they released in 2013 – and loved them all of course! Lush sure know how to make bath time special.

Skin care

Benefit Total Moisture
If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times, but I’ll say it again for good measure – I love this stuff! It’s my holy grail evening moisturiser – and the pot loots pretty darn cute too!

The Body Shop Camomile Make Up Remover
Similar to BioDerma but on a more affordable scale, this stuff literally melt make up off your face, including those pesky waterproof mascaras. No scrubbing involved, it is so gentle, even for the most sensitive skinned amongst us.


Sleek Au Natural Palette
This has been my go to palette year round – and for £8…wow, you can’t beat it for budget beauty. The colours are so pigmented and wearable with amazing staying power. It reminds me so much of the Naked 2 palette too

MAC Exquisite Ego
A last minute entry, I wore this through the holiday season and loved it. It’s from a Limited Edition collection, the highlight is perfect, and did I mention it was my first ever MAC shadow? That makes it pretty special!

Hands & Nails

Lush Helping Hands
This little pot quite literally saved my hands in 2013. It’s super moisturising, ultra hydrating, smells amazing, reduces redness and heals broken skin almost over night. It’s a miracle in a pot!

Nails Inc – Covent Garden
My most worn shade of 2013 has to be this deep navy. It’s my go-to-polish, with an accented glitter nail.


Real Techniques Buffing Brush
Thanks to this little gem I have fell back in love with my mineral foundations tenfold! The application is flawless, no caking, perfect coverage with a natural matte finish. It works a treat with its duo fibre condensed bristles, flawless every time!

Clarisonic Mia 2
Another last minute entry but now I’ve gone sonic I don’t think I could ever go back! I only got it at Christmas but this has seriously revolutionised my skin care routine – my pores have never looked smaller, my skin tight and polished, and breakouts have whittled down to less than the bare minimum It’s too good not to mention!

Hot Buns
Perfectly polished doughnut style bun in 30 seconds - no bobby pins required? I don't mind if I do thank you very much! The best £10 I spent all year, this is my go to style for bad hair days or if I want to look a little more polished!  

I wonder if any of these will be making the top of my list in 2015?
What’s your #1 product of 2013?

Until next time,


  1. My friend reallllly really wants to get a Clarisonic but every time we go to Sephora she backs out cause of the price haha! I think she might eventually get it though because all you hear about it is how much people love it! And oooo I don't have a MAC eyeshadow but that's so cool that they come with a highlight - I didn't know that!! Might look at getting one in the future!

    1. The price put me off for a really long time too, luckily I got my Clarisonic as a gift, but after using it I would have happily handed over my own £££ for it! Well worth the investment!
