Favourite & least favourite cosmetics/skincare.

Hi Beauties,

Are there any makeup products you can’t live without? Conversely, are there any cosmetics you detest?

I can’t live without Invisible Zinc Sheer Defence Tinted Sunscreen and I can’t stand any type of mascara and by extension, most eye makeup!

They aren’t cosmetics but I never leave my house without my UPF50 wide brimmed Helen Kaminski hat, sunnies and if possible, my UPF40 clothing!

    Ooh, Suey: I see you just joined Bh! Good onya!

    Do you mean the Maybelline 24-Hr Superstay? Yeah, I like that one, too – but I haven’t worn lippy since before the pandemic because I’m always wearing a mask when I go out. I really miss it.

    [EDIT] This should have been a reply to SueyM, below. I don’t know why it posted as a new comment.

    I can’t live without all of my cosmetics but I would have to say that I am slightly addicted to my 24 hour stay on lipstick.

      I love cream blushes!

        Me too Lucy! I’ve just started trying them this year & I don’t think I’m going back to a powder blush tbh. Cream just works better.

      A lovely list but personally, mascara hates me and the feeling is mutual!

      • 1 month, 1 w ago

        I used to feel this way actually. I have tiny lashes. Just wondering if you are put off because of the same reason.

        I have SO many mascaras – never buy them but somehow end up with them as GWP or through Mecca Beauty Loop. I usually give them away but I learned a hack to use interdental brushes as mascara spoolies – life-changing! Great tip for tiny lashes!

        Hi again Ethelinde, sorry if that came across as rude!! I meant to embolden your name and not the rest of the response!

      • 1 month, 1 w ago

        Not rude at all. 🙂

        Hi Ethelinde , I’m lucky to have long, thick and dark lashes but I have very sensitive eyes!

    can’t live without sunscreen!!! Spf 50 everyday, regardless if I am going out or not!
    Rosehip oil!! Stuff works wonders for keeping the skin moisturised!
    Shower gel! Can’t use soaps as they reeeally irritate my skin, dry it out, make it feel leathery and itchy

    dislikes
    bronzer makes my skin look muddy/dirty!
    blush just looks so wrong on me, I always think it makes people look slightly sunburnt haha!
    liquid eyeliner i am not a fan, never mastered it, always winds up inside the eyeball
    micellar water irritates my skin, really dries it out
    fake tanhave tried some but no, not overly a fan. Prefer my pale skin ♡
    lipstick sorry ladies but never liked it, just feels wrong to me lol prefer to keep it natural

    Faves:
    Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel nothing works the same, I wish it wasn’t so pricey
    Ole Henriksen Cold Plunge Pore Mask my favourite mask, bright blue and feels absaloutely amazing, especially for a clay mask
    origins ginzing moisturiser smells incredible, the texture of it is just amazing and really gives my skin some extra zing

    I can’t live without mascara (I wear it every day), moisturisers and sunscreen.

    I can definitely live without eye liner, false eye lashes (never used them) and bronzer.
