Amazing products that nobody ever told me about!

In my recent August favourites video I spoke about two products that I love.  Two products that when I posted photos of on Instagram, had everyone, literally everyone telling me that they'd love them for years and I was very behind the times.


I am a failure at life for only trying out Carmex lip balm recently and it was only because of the July Glossybox that it came into my life, into my house and onto my lips.  How have I never tried this pot of lipular goodness before?  Why, in all the posts where I've talked about my gickedy dry lips, did nobody tell me to try this?  Whyyyyyyyyyyyyy?  If you have any kind of peeling, cracked or dry lips then you need to check this out because I am hooked.  Completely and utterly hooked.


The other thing that everyone and their granny has tried and loved but never told me about was the L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil.  I'm actually still not over the fact that nobody mentioned how fantastic it is because this stuff is gorgeous.  If you want a bit of luxury in your shower then you need to lather up this soothing scented shower oil and get cracking.  It smells every so slightly nutty rather than sweet and leaves my skin feeling soft and supple each time I use it.  I've gone through half of a bottle really quickly because I've been using it every day but now I'm attempting to ration it.  Is it wrong to say I look forward to the showers more on the days where I use this?


Now, I don't know if you can tell or not, but here on the blog, I get giddy with excitement when I've found something amazing and have to share it with you.  I try to make it look all purty with photos because it deserves to have it's own photoshoot.  I hold it up to my forehead in videos because the words won't come out and I get overcome with the feels.  I bring it around with me so I can make people try it out, such is the love I have for it.  I go on about it and talk about it incessentaly until I have essentially bullied you into loving what I love but more than that, I don't want you to miss out on fantastic products.

Right people.  The time has come.  Our relationship is about to become a two way street.  Over the past 4 years, I've waffled on and on about products I love.  Holy grail things.  Perfumes you need to buy, eyeshadows you need to put on your eyeballs, foundation that you can't be without because you actually need to know about these things.  So I would like you to tell me your favourite products that I need to try.  Must try.  Have to try or I'm a big blogging failure!  So share with the class.  Is there a mascara I haven't tried yet that you've used for yonks and feel I could be missing out on?  Or is there a haircare product that could potentially give me uber swishy hair?

Don't hold out on me!

  1. I've been a huge fan of L'Occitane's shower oil for years. It truly is amazing.
    I have a ton of HG, but some of the most important ones are Catrice Defining Blush 020 Rose Royce, Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse (I'e been using it as my face moisturiser for three years, I adore it), Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick, Orofluido Beauty Elixir and Sexy Healthy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner.

  2. I've seen the Carmex lip balm in boots, but the packaging never enticed me to buy it, and I always just went for the vaseline lip care range, but I'll HAVE to buy that now!
    I haven't tried any of the L'Occitane products, so I'l have to investigate this also! I don't have any amazing products to share with ye off the top of my head, but I'll have a think and get back to ye. :-)

  5. Carmex is fabulous!! I was on roaccutane for my skin, and a side effect is very dry lips. Carmex was the only product that worked. I especially love the mint flavour.
