Everybody loves a bit of makeup chat, I think that daily skin, shower, and hair products are just as fun and important! I thought I'd share a peek into the products I use on a daily basis.

To remove my makeup I use an oil-based remover by Boots Botanics. It's the sort that you have to shake up really well before use, but it gets off even the toughest, most waterproof eyeliners and mascaras! Then I use Nip + Fab's Glycolic Cleanser with a wee face brush to exfoliate and get my skin feeling nice and fresh. 


Now, a lot of my friends have teased me for using anti-aging products. I admit, I'm quite afraid of growing old. If I think about it too much, I get too existential and then I just feel like everything is fleeting and ephemeral and blah blah blah! Anyway, I prefer the rich, Age Perfect oil-cream. It's like a tall glass of water to my tired skin! It feels and smells so luxurious!

I like to mix & match my shampoos and conditioners. SInce highlighting my hair, I've switched to John Frieda Sheer Blonde shampoo. To keep it looking soft and luxurious, I condition with Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle: Shine. I am personally not a fan of Aussie's signature scent, but this product has a much more pleasant smell! I don't think this is traditionally used as a daily conditioner, but I use it daily because of how much bleach my hair has taken. 


I have always been a fan of Lush shower gels, particularly the seasonal & limited edition gels. I'm still using Prince Charming from the Valentine's Day collection. I love this Soap & Glory shower puff because it's extra dense and makes a ton of bubbles from a small amount of product!

To repair my bleached hair, I use V05 hot oil. It's so nice because it's so quick & easy! You apply it before shampooing, leave it on for a few minutes, then shampoo & condition as usual. My stylist is impressed with the condition of my hair, and I would definitely recommend this product! 


Before blow drying I always start with Toni & Guy heat protect spray. Then I apply V05 styling mousse whether I'm doing a big blow out or diffusing for natural curls. To finish it off and make both looks a bit less polished I use a dash of Toni & Guy sea salt spray. It smells so fresh and makes my hair look less meticulously styled.
