Best Of 2013.

So I thought I'd write up a quick post of my most used and loved products from 2013. I tried to limit it down to 5 of each, which was really hard! I love reading these kind of posts as anything someone re-purchases is appealing to me.

Favourite Body Finds
1. Soap & Glory - Girlingo - A spray on moisturiser that's so quick and easy to use.
2. Burberry Body - Perfume - This has to be my all time favourite perfume! 
3. Estee Lauder - Day Wear - Oil Free Moisturiser. How could I not include this one? I've raved and raved about it so much over 2013 haha!
4. Mario Badescu - Buffering Lotion - For anyone that suffers with cystic spots (those spots that stay under your skin for ages) I really recommend this. It's made a huge change in my skin!
5. Soap & Glory - Peaches and Clean - 3 in 1 wash off - Absolutely LOVE this one. I use to feel quite down about my skin, but this has changed the way my skin looks and feels. Making my skin look more radiant and just wow after a bath.

Favourite Beauty Finds
1. Sleek - Blusher in Flushed - You only need a little bit of the gorgeous blush, but it's perfect for a natural 'flushed' colour to the cheeks especially over A/W.
2. MAC - Eyeshadow in Woodwinked - I wear this everyday without fail! I'm so glad I was introduced to it as I never really wore bronze eyeshadows previously. I think it's thee BEST eyeshadow I own.
3. MAC - Studio Fix Fluid - I was quite scared to try this one as it breaks people out pretty bad, but I love it and thankfully haven't had any side affects. The colour match is just perfect and it lasts all day long without having to re-apply.
4. Real Techniques - Expert Face Brush - I'll never use a foundation brush again!
5. theBalm - Mary-Lou Manizer- Highlighter - This has to be the best highlighter I own. Nothing but love for this one.
6. NYX - Pump It Up Lipgloss in the shade Kim - I've worn this near enough everyday since I purchased it and I've just re-ordered it as I'm running low. It's a nice natural looking gloss with the plumping effect. If you're a sucker for a nude lip like Kim K you'll love this one.

So there we are...
My favourite products from 2013. Are any of these listed in your favourites?
I'd love to know your top 5?
Happy New Year to all you lovely readers!

    1. It's amazing isn't it? I've been using it every night and my skin seems to look a whole lot better and it gives it a bit of a glow when I've got out of the bath instead of being dull and yucky! I'll make sure I have a look lovely :) xx

  7. I was thinking of doing a top 10 or so favorite products of 2013... But I couldn't limit myself so I trashed the idea, haha. I've gotta get myself a bottle of Peaches and Clean sometime, I always hear wonderful reviews about Soap and Glory products. I really like RT brushes too. All of the ones I've tried are nothing short of super :)
