I think that we can tend to overlook the products that we use daily as they're just taken for granted and not seen as exciting or new enough to blog about, but it's the consistent use of these products that keeps things from getting out of control. I'm not going to include any facial skincare products because you know the building blocks of my routine and the products vary, depending on what I'm currently testing/wanting to use up etc. However, there are other products that I use daily without even thinking about it, but if I didn't, I would see a huge difference and not in a good way! SPF and deodorants are a given so I haven't mentioned those, but take a look at what are non-negotiable for me...
Revitalash Conditioning Lash Serum: I haven't had my lash extensions done since maybe May and I've been using lash serums since. The difference in my lashes is immense with some people even asking if I'm back with the extensions. This serum is the best out there as far as I'm concerned. Yes, it's expensive but my lashes have multiplied and are strong and curly too. I honestly couldn't b happier! I use it morning and night and leave it with my skincare products so that it's just part of my routine now!
Hand Cream: 9 times out of ten, it's a L'Occitane hand cream because they're super nourishing (I have very dry skin and am still constantly washing my hands although I think a lot of people gave that up when they believed Covid was "gone" - insert numerous rolly eyes!) and yet not greasy and don't leave a film on the skin that makes it difficult to do or use anything after application. Plus, they smell nice too!
Foot cream: Again, it's usually from L'Occitane however I'm currently using one from Caudalie, which is nourishing but not overly rich, so I won't slip after applying it! It also has a beautiful, light and fresh scent. I like to keep my heels, and feet in general, feeling soft so I never skip a day's use!
Hair Oil: This can vary from Olaplex to Kérastase, to L'Oreal Elvive* to Metal Detox, but I use some oil in my hair pretty much every day. Always in the ends of my hair to prevent any frizziness, but also to nourish my hair and keep it in good condition. I like to use one that won't weigh my hair down and I don't use too much because I don't want my hair to be greasy - just enough to keep it soft and frizz-free!
Cuticle Oil: As part of my evening routine, I use a cuticle oil because it's in a drawer beside my bed with other evening products. The one I love most is from L'Occitane*. I love that I can dab a drop on each nail ned with the brush applicator and then massage in. It really does make a difference, particularly at this time of year.
Lip balm: This is a must have all year round! I have them everywhere but as part of my evening routine, I will use either Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream or Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. My BEAUTYLYMIN code will save you 21% on both of these and so many other brands and products on Look Fantastic! I need my lips to feel nourished because, as with my skin, they are naturally very dry and I am on a lot of medication, which doesn't help matters. If you're looking for a multi-tasker to use on lips, cuticles, elbows - basically any dry areas, then go for the Eight Hour Cream! A little goes a long way with it too!
Body lotion/cream: I think that my skin would just shed if I didn't use body moisturiser daily! If I leave it too long after bathing to apply moisturiser, my skin becomes uncomfortable and itchy! I'm not too fussy on what brand I use - it can be anything from the supermarket to high end, but the main thing is that it has to absorb quickly and really nourish my skin and keep it supple. I tend to use a lot of oils in winter.
Perfume: I just wouldn't feel like myself without a spray of perfume! I truly am a fragrance addict and have no problem in admitting it. I've loved perfume for as long as I can remember and used to try to make it from crushed rose petals from the garden as a child. No matter how ill I am, I will always be wearing fragrance! Even when I was bedridden, I would ask my husband to spray it on me daily and he totally understood because he's a huge fragrance fan too! I regularly share my Fragrance Of The Day on Instagram and switch them up seasonally.
I'd love to hear what you use daily, without really thinking about it?
