From the admittedly frivolous to the highly practical, we fess up to the must-have beauty products we’d buy over and over again – desert island or not.

“I like switching up all my beauty products, except one. My deodorant has always been and always will be Dove Original Roll On – and considering how stinky I could get stranded on a desert island I think it would definitely be my product of choice.” – bh’s Sam

“If I could only have one beauty product in my survival kit – hands down, I would choose lip balm. It’s my Holy Grail hybrid product for all-over beauty. I use it to hydrate and protect my lips, heal minor burns, and also as a highlighter and to keep my brows in place. Repeat after me: Water, check. Matches, check. Lip balm, check.” – bh’s Ally

bh loves: The Body Shop Aloe Lip Treatment, Maybelline New York Baby Lips Loves Colour Lip Balm, Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

“Mine would be the Dr. LeWinn’s Multi-Moisture Multi-Use Balm. It has so many uses and smells amazing! It helps with dry skin, removes make-up, soothes dry hands and cuticles and works as a lip gloss!” bh’s Alicia

“Out of necessity, I’d have to choose ViraproX. The second my lips catch a bit of sunlight, a cold sore is well on the way so to be stranded on an island without this product would be quite the disaster for me.” – bh’s Astrid

“I’m going to assume that sunscreen is a given for this challenge and pack La Roche Posay’s Anthelios XL SPF50. My non-SPF essential is Lanolips’ Golden Dry Skin Salve, which I use for everything from chapped lips to raggedy cuticles. I’ve even applied a thin layer to my entire face when it’s feeling particularly dry and irritated.”  bh’s Michelle

“Hands down Anastasia Brow Wiz – when the brows are done I feel like I can take on anything, like trying to get off the desert island!” – bh’s Aja

bh loves: MOMMA 3-in-1 Mineral Dust Powder, Innoxa 2 in 1 Brow Shape & Highlight Stick, Bobbi Brown Brow Kit

“I’ve been a true devotee of Lucas’ Papaw since high school. I use it on my lips, on burns, on scrapes and grazes, as well as a highlighter and brow gel for when I’ve run out.” – bh’s Sarah

“I can’t live without shampoo, especially as I’m one of those people who constantly touches/dirties their hair! At the moment it’d be TRESemme Colour Revitalise Shampoo – it protects my hair colour and also moisturises my mane… no conditioner needed!” – bh’s Beth

“I’m sure I’m not the only one to say this but coconut oil. I could use it as a moisturiser, hair treatment, make-up remover, tanning oil (for those long days in the island sun) and even use it to cook with!” – bh’s Caitlin
