Best of 2014

2014 was an excellent year in terms of skincare discoveries, mostly because of my skincare guru Caroline Hirons. I tried practically everything she recommended and loved everything. I also visited London in April where I went quite overboard in Space NK, Selfridge’s and Boots.

1- In terms of haircare this year, I tried 2 brands- Rahua and Oribe Shampoos and Conditioners. Of the two, my hair definitely loved Oribe better. It’s extremely luxurious, leaves the hair smelling amazing and feeling so soft and bouncy. The packaging is also quite pretty. My husband actually thought the shampoo was a bottle of perfume.

2- Frank Coffee Scrub- this is a natural coffee scrub that I discovered online and boy am I glad I did. This stuff is sooo amazing, I can’t get enough. It can be used on the face and body and seriously leaves my skin so extremely smooth and silky. The best part about it? It is so cheap at USD 14.95 and can be ordered online through their website http://www.frankbody.com .

3. Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm- this is a cult product loved by Caroline Hirons which in turn is loved by all skincare fanatics like me and I totally understand why. This has completely changed the meaning of cleansing. This is so expensive but I would definitely repurchase when mine is over as it is worth the splurge.

4- May Lindstrom skincare- another natural skincare brand that I am so glad I have discovered is May Lindstrom. They are extremely expensive so I just bought a few of her products for now.

5- Wayne Goss face brush set- I have no idea how I survived without these brushes previously. These are my go to brushes at the moment and I really need to invest in the eye set as well. Besides, I love Wayne Goss:)

6- Su-man rehydrating toning essence- its very rare to find a toner that does not leave the skin feeling stripped and this is one of them. I love the glass packaging, and it leaves the skin feeling refreshed and hydrated.

7- Gosh Cosmetics- Amazing drugstore find. I love their lip lacquers that look like little nail polishes. Their eye pencils and eye-shadow sticks are amazing too. The best product in my opinion is the Boombastic mascara which so easily rivals the high end mascaras out there for a small fraction of the price.

8- Charlotte Tilbury- I can’t praise Charlotte Tilbury makeup enough. I mean this lady does no wrong in terms of makeup from her blushes to lipsticks and eye pencils. I can’t get enough. If you haven’t tried any of her products- what are you waiting for?

9- Tom Ford brow sculptor- this is one product that I cannot live without at the moment. It makes my brows look so natural and it is so easy to use and lasts very long even with everyday use.
