Whats in my beauty bag

Hi girlies!

So I bought a new floral beauty bag from my local boots store at the weekend to put my eveyday essentials in, it is the perfect size, a wipeable material and was an absolute bargain at just £3.00. And so i thought why not share with you guys what exactly my essentials are...

Liz Earle cleanse & polish

I'm sure that you've all heard of this product, but if not, it really is amazing! When I was younger, I always remember having a cheeky try of my mums Liz Earle products, as she has used them for years, and ever since ive been hooked. The hot cloth cleanser smells so nice, leaves my skin feeling so soft, and makes me feel happy, for some reason, after using it (hey, if it works, why not?)

No7 Soft and Soothed Gentle Toner

A few weeks back, I had a voucher for £5 off No7 (you know, those boots vouchers that end up cluttering the bottom of your handbag) and i'd ran out of my usual nivea toner, so i thought id check the range out. I thought this bottle would look so cute in my bathroom (im a sucker for packaging) and it was only £3 with the voucher, so i thought id give it a go, and whaddya know? im hooked! It so refreshing, and works so well! (as you can see, im nearly out! Boots here i come!)

Leighton Denny Crystal Nail File

This is my absolute favourite nail file! It goes everywhere with me, it works so well, you can use it back and forth without damaging your nails and it looks so cute!

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturing lotion

Now this isn't my favourite moisturiser, not that theres a problem with it, it just doesnt work well with my skin. My skin is very dry and i feel that i need a lot of product for this to do anything to my skin, however it is a small, handy little bottle, thats useful to pop into my bag, for whenever i feel i need that little bit of extra moisturisation, here or there.

Clinique All About Eyes

I really do love this little pot of joy! I just dab a few tiny spots of this around my eyes, after my skincare routine, morning and night, and allow it to sink in. I find that a little product goes a long way, and it reduces any puffiness, smoothes out any lines, and makes your skin look glowing!

Tangle teezer

Ahh, where would i be without my tangle teezer? Because my hair is so thick, and it has bleach on the ends, it soons gets knotty, and when its wet, there isnt a lot i can do with it, but the tangle teezer means i can brush it, without being reduced to tears! Yay!

The next four products were all recieved in my glossybox subscription boxes, and have started to become my beauty staples!

Balance Rescue Face Tonique

I know, I know, I have two toners in my bag, but with this being such a small bottle, and i usually use a lot of toner, I use my No7 Toner to ensure all traces of makeup are removed, and then sweep this over my face to ensure that it is extra clean and refreshed. This one smells so nice, as it contains essential oils, which help with spots.

Rituals Magic Touch Cherry Blossom & Rice Milk Whipped Body Cream 

This smells absolutely amazing! Though I wouldnt advise wearing it to bed, as the smell is a little too strong, and it kept me awake! But this is perfect to pop on all over your body, after jumping out of the shower in a morning, as its really hydrating on the skin, and the smell lasts all day!

Monu Microexfoliant

I cannot recommend this product enough! This deeply exfoliates the skin, leaving your skin feeling soft and clean, i also apply a tiny amount on my lips (but be careful if doing this as you dont want to damage them) and this removes all of the dead skin, leaving them super smooth!

Figs and Rouge
This really is an amazing multipurpose balm. After exfoliating my lips, i apply this balm to leave them feeling super smooth, this works great at night time as it keeps them hydrated during the night. It also works well in a morning, as i leave it to soak whilst doing my hair and applying my makeup, this then leaves a super smooth base to apply my lipstick, leaving them looking kissably smooth!

I always carry cotton wool pads for my toner, and cotton buds for makeup smudges in my beauty bag.
