I’ve fallen in love with these six beauty products!

Consider this your sign to invest in your beauty and skincare with products that love you back!

Thanks to recommendations from friends, family and some of my fave beauty influencers on the wonderful world of TikTok, I have discovered and fallen in love with some beauty and skincare products that I will be using for the life (provided they don’t get discontinued 🤞🏾).

Here are six of the products I have absolutely loved using with the exception of one product (which isn’t a new one for me, but a very much loved and appreciated fave of mine).

One: NARS Bronzing Cream
For those of you familiar with beauty expert and content creator Uche Natori, you will probably be familiar with this product. I’ve tried a few cream bronzers in the past and hated them: some I do found were too hard to apply or blend out, and others caused me to breakout like CRAZY.

NARS Laguna Bronzing Cream. John Lewis. £36.

I know it’s a little pricey for a cream bronzer but after using it a few times I know it’s completely worth the price. Trust me when I say, a little goes a very, VERY long way! I love how soft and silky the formula feels on my skin and the gorgeous, sun-kissed look it leaves on my face? Sensational. (I use Laguna 04)

Two: Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Pressed Powder
Another (pricey) product that’s worth the hype is this pressed powder right here. I was recommended this Charlotte Tilbury product by a work friend who is known by everyone as always having incredible make-up.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Pressed Powder. John Lewis. £46.

I’m someone who likes my make-up nice and matte and in the past, some pressed powders have failed me and I’ve ended up looking oily in some areas (predominately near my nostrils, my t-zone and my chin). But ever since I’ve used this pressed powder by Charlotte Tilbury I’m happy to report that I have not seen those oily patches in a very long time. Ms. Tilbury ate with this one because this little gem leaves the perfect matte finish a girl could wish for!

Three: Bondi Sands SPF 50 lip balm
Now this is a summer staple, especially if you have experienced sunburnt lips while on holiday (the worst feeling ever!)

Bondi Sands SPF 50+ Lip Balm in Wild Strawberry. Superdrug. £4.99

My lips and I wished I had this balm with me when I went to Seville back in March but I made sure to bring with me during my holiday in Jamaica! This clear balm is nourishing, not heavily scented and acts as a great protector your lips from those harmful sun rays. I love the Wild Strawberry balm but there are other flavours included Juicy Watermelon, Toasted Coconut, Sweet Vanilla and a regular Vitamin E Moisturising balm.

Four: Beauty of Joseon Glow Serum
Any K-beauty and skincare fans here? I’ve been loving Korean skincare products that this is one that I absolutely LOVE which was recommended to me by The Skin Hub.

Beauty of Joseon Glow Serum. The Skin Hub. £18

I feel like this serum makes my skin smile and has been a real game changer for my skincare routine. It’s soft and gentle on my skin, leaving her looking and feeling nice and plump, revived and most importantly, super glowy. As someone whose dealt with acne in the past, I’m all about finding gentle products with anti-inflammatory properties that prevent any flare ups, and this serum is one that I’m glad to have invested in.

Five: Cinéma by Yves Saint Laurent
My absolute favourite scent of all time – and I’m not even exaggerating. This was the first-ever perfume I bought for myself when first started in the world of work (at 16 years old) and I have loved it ever since.

Cinéma by Yves Saint Laurent. John Lewis. £115.00

This is such an elegant fragrance that will make people notice that you have stepped into the room, and it does so in a charming and graceful way. It’s a captivating smell with an intense vanilla base note and soft floral top notes of almond blossom, clementine, cyclamen. I have always said, if Yves Saint Laurent discontinue this scent I will enter into a long period of mourning.

Six: Rose and White Musk Absolu by Jo Malone
This is one of many fragrances I have recently fallen in love with and was lucky enough to be gifted with by one of my favourite persons in the world!

Rose and White Musk Absolu. Jo Malone. £236

The price of this perfume is insane however, it’s such has such a beautiful, intense scent that everyone notices. I cannot tell you the number of times I’ve received compliments or questions about what fragrance I’m wearing since I started wearing it! It’s rich, it’s sweet, and it’s beautifully alluring.

Just like with everything we want in life, beauty comes with a price. However, when there’s girl maths in the equation I can just about justify the reasons why each of these products are worth the investment!

Long-lasting, flawless and reliable. What more could a girl ask for? I’d love to know if you’ve tried any of these products, or what your go-to products are so feel free to leave a comment below!

Bisous bisous!
