2015 Non-Makeup Favourites

nonmake up

I have to admit narrowing down what to put in this post was hard. I had loads of non-makeup favourites but a lot didn't make the cut because, frankly, they wouldn't fit in the photo. This year I didn't try out a lot of skin care and my routine is still the same as it was when I posted about it in the summer. I am also 100 per cent sure that the Origins clear improvements face mask has featured in my blog one too many times already but it is really one of my favourite masks if my skin is not going through a break out period so it has made it to the top of my list for my favourite skin care item. I am not going to feature many skin care products because I really don't know what is amazing and what isn't because I've never experimented with it but this year I want to ditch buying large amounts of make up and to start looking after my skin. After all, make up looks better when you have a flawless canvas to work with!

Since trying The Body Shop Vitamin E range I have fallen in love. So far I've only tried the moisturises but I cannot be without them. The evening moisturiser is really thick in texture so a little bit goes a long way. It doesn't leave the skin feeling sticky as it sinks in beautifully and in the morning you can really feel the benefits as my skin feels wonderfully soft and smooth. The day moisturiser is quite opposite to the night one as it is very watery in texture but like the evening one it sinks into the skin quickly and I love using this before applying my make up as it helps clear up any dry patches.

My obsession with Lush is forever growing and I just cannot get enough of it. I tend to only take a bath on Sunday to prepare myself for another week but recently (since shopping in the boxing day sale) I have been wanting to take two or three baths a week because I just love the bath bombs. I like to shut out the world, light some candles and pop my iPad onto a chair and just chill out for half an hour. The smell of all the Lush products I've tried are incredible and I have never been disappointed.

When I'm not taking baths I have been loving the Soap and Glory Sugar Crush shower wash and body butter. The smell is like a lime, kiwi, creamy soda. It's nothing I have smelt before and in the morning and always makes me smile at how wonderful the scent is. The amount of product you get is massive and so far is has lasted me 6 months so it is amazing value for money.

2015 was an interesting year full of ups and downs but it's made me strong and prepared for 2016. There are some amazing new brands I want to try and I can't wait to publish them on my blog!
