In the last couple of years I have once again become fascinated with beauty products. My beauty must haves are a real thing these days. Those shiney little pots and tubes. They are full of wonder and I almost believe they will turn me into a beautiful princess one day?
My latest Beauty Must Haves
It is the promise of the new, the idea that perhaps you have finally found ‘the one’ The one that will turn back the clock and work miracles on my old ‘boat race’ For any US ladies reading this, it is ‘rhyming slang’ for face!

Bobbi Brown Concealer in sand.
Perfect consistency for my older skin, not to thick but a perfect coverage for my dark circles. I dab on with the wand and blend with my fingers… 15 shades to chose from for the perfect match
Rimmel Insta flawless
Recommended to me by one of my Instagram friends. It’s actually so good I bought tw0 and need another one soon. It’s a primer, but I use it as a light base on its own. Perfect for use on a no make up day as a moisturiser. I use it with concealer for a heavier coverage on ‘I need lots of help’ make up days too. Available in light and medium
It makes my skin glow, really!
Neutrogena rapid wrinkle repair:
This one is a cream I bought from the US I wear it at night. Over the last few months I cant say I have noticed a major difference, but its rich and comfortable. I will buying more this week as I will be in florida again. Not sure if it’s available in the UK as it has retinol in it? If anyone else knows then please let me know.
So that is my six recommendations for you so far. i love to try new things and firmly believe technology is improving our skin care all the time…
I also dont think you have to spend a lot of money to get a decent beauty must have these days. What do you think?
Do you already use any of these or do you have any new favourite beauty must haves of your own to recommend to me?
