As I’ve mentioned many times on my blog lately I have been such a sucker for minimal no fuss makeup and routines that it’s really got me thinking about the magical beauty treasures that I absolutely can’t live without and find myself using every. single. day. … hence why they are my everyday beauty essentials, haha!
Now these aren’t just makeup items but like my actual everyday beauty essentials, including the not so glamorous but oh so needed items like toothbrushes and my holy grail hairbrush, so without further ado, here are my everyday beauty essentials!
Oral B Vitality Plus Floss Action Toothbrush!
I’m not even kidding when I say that the Oral B Vitality Plus Floss Action toothbrush is what that really inspired me to write this post because I love it sooooo much and I just want to tell everyone! I picked up this baby about three weeks ago and investing in an electric toothbrush has been the best decision ever! My teeth are looking whiter and feel the cleanest they have ever felt, so I would 110% recommend checking this out if your after a new toothbrush!
PS. This is not sponsored at all, I just genuinely love this toothbrush haha!
GHD Hair brush!
Another odd beauty essential that I wanted to feature in this post is my GHD hairbrush!
I am so picky when it comes to hair brushes – I can’t have the thin rectangle plastic ones, I can’t have round ones, and don’t even get me started on hairbrushes with stuff bristles! – but this one just seems to tick all of my boxes! I got this when I purchased my GHD straightener a few years back and it’s seriously been my holy grail for the everyday since! The large flat head makes brushing your hair so quick and easy, plus the bristles haven’t melted or curved at all from holding it close to my hair while straightening!
Vivant Revitafoam mouse!
I just had to talk about the Vivant Revitafoam hair mousse because it is literally making my life so much easier on the days that I wash my hair. My hair gets ridiculously knotted, even hairdressers have a hard time brushing out my strands because once they think they have brushed it all out smooth another 6 knots pop up, so my boyfriend’s friend came home with this for me to tackle these pesky knots and make life a little more pain-free! All you need is a walnut sized amount of this in the palm of your hand and then run it through your strands and viola, your hair will brush out so easily and all of the knots just seems to melt away. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
Neutrogena HydroBoost Moisturiser!
Now this wouldn’t be an everyday beauty essentials post if I didn’t feature the Neutrogena Hydro Boost water gel moisturiser. This baby is such an amazing dupe for the Clinique Moisture surge Extended Thirst Relief Moisturiser for literally half the price! I initially picked this up on one of Priceline’s 40% off skin care sales around 9 months ago and I really haven’t used anything else since! It has such a nice gel like consistency that absorbs into the skin without leaving a ‘film’. It’s oil free, non-comedogenic (won’t block your pores) and loaded with hyaluronic acid to intensely hydrate. I really could not recommend this enough, especially if you suffer with dry and easily congested skin like me !
Bourjois Paris 123 Perfect CC Cream!
The CC cream that I wrote a dedicated blog post on, tweeted several tweets about and rocked out and about to the club on the weekend. The Bourjois Paris 123 Perfect CC cream is amazing! I’ll put a link (here) to my dedicated post and review for all of the main details but I had to mention it here because I don’t even know what I would do without it anymore! It is my everyday base makeup beauty essential.
Ready, Set, Brow gel by Benefit
One brow gel to rule them all. One gel to bind them. *To cringe? Okay, I’ll stop with the LOTR references.*
This brow gel is fantastic – the Ready, Set, Brow gel by Benefit is one of the few brow gels that locks your brows down looks natural doing so! One of my pet peeves with a lot of brow gels is when they start look glazed or clumpy, and this one just ticks all of the right boxes!
Love, love, loveeee this product!
OMG. This eyelash curler though!! In all honesty I actually purchased this because I thought it would be the cutest little blog prop for photos – blogger problems, right – but then I actually decided to use it one night when I couldn’t popping on falsies and I seriously don’t know how I ever left the house without prepping my lashes until then.
If your thinking about getting eyelash extensions or a lash tint/lift I would definitely recommend trying out this little rose gold hero, or any eyelash curler for that matter, before spending the money on little cosmetic procedures because this is hands down one of the best beauty investments I’ve purchased in a while! Seriously, I have been asked twice so far by the office gals if I’m wearing falsies or extensions when really its just mascara on my curled lashes!! Unfortunately I couldn’t find these exact ones on the target website but I’ve linked an identical pair here!
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
I’m sure you have heard of this mascara because it’s possibly one of the most popular drugstore/affordable mascaras on the market – and it has obviously earned it’s reputation!
The Maybelline lash sensational mascara is a drama gal’s best friend! It is SUPER volumizing and really gives you that va-va-voom factor, especially when you curl your lashes prior!
Plus doesn’t seem to smudge, melt of flake throughout the day like some of my higher-end mascaras do. *cough* Better Than Sex by Too Faced *cough*.
The only con I want to let you know about is that this stuff seriously does not move. Like at all. So I sure as hell wouldn’t recommend getting the waterproof version of this otherwise you will literally be ripping your eyelashes off when you remove your makeup (sadly, I speak from experience) so make sure to pick up the regular version to make your life a little easier!
What are your everyday beauty essentials?
Until next time,
Love, Angela xx.
