Are you in a long-term beauty relationship?


Some beauty obsessions are fleeting, but others make a lasting impression. I’m talking about the ones I return to month after month, year after year.

In other words, my long-term beauty relationships. These ever-reliable products are as dear (if not dearer) to me than any boyfriend, and as it turns out, bh members know exactly how I feel.

Brown Beauty started a forum not too long ago about her long-term beauty relationships with Rimmel London Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick and essence lip liner, and the recommendations that followed were too good not to share!

Read on for the lowdown on some of your long-term beauty loves (plus a few from the bh team)…

Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner is the only product that I have never had a break from using. About 12 years and counting.” – bh member skincare junkie

Vaseline Intensive Care Petroleum Jelly. My dermatologist recommended it and I use it for so many things. It’s the perfect occlusive.” – bh member preciousa

“I love the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+, I’ve been using it for around eight years. I LOVE it.” – bh member Sharzi

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation – I discovered this product about five years ago, and I may never buy another foundation again. It covers my imperfections perfectly and gives me a dewy but matte finish (which is great for my oily, blemish-prone skin). Well worth the hefty price tag.” – bh’s Caitlin

M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish in natural – [it’s] the only powder that doesn’t look cakey on me year round! It’s also great for a quick buff over concealer when I don’t want a full face of make-up.” – bh member Steph Speth

Face of Australia Liquid Eyeliner… I just love it.” – bh member MoonlightSak16

Aveeno Active Naturals Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion has been in my stash for almost seven years, along with the Veet Hair Removal Cream Sensitive. They are definitely products I’ll be using for a very long time!” – bh member Deeknight

“I’ve been using the Reef Dry Sun Oil SPF 30+ for more than five years. I’ll admit, I try to avoid the sun as much as possible, but when I am in the rays, I’ll slather some Reef oil on my whole body, especially since the new formula has SPF 30+ in it! Winning.” – bh’s Vanessa

“I’ve been using Dove Original Anti-Perspirant Roll-On since I was about 12! I’ve tried a few brands but I always come back to old faithful. The smell is classic, clean and fresh. I guess it’s my secret to sexy underarms ;).” – bh’s Sam

Batiste Original Dry Shampoo and I have been in a long-term beauty relationship for at least five years and are still going strong! As someone who gets greasy hair easily, this stuff really is a lifesaver!” – bh’s Aja

TRESemmé Deep Cleansing Shampoo. With my oily hair, I keep going back to it. I’ve got a stockpile in the laundry cupboard. I’ve been using it for 10+ years, possibly longer.” – bh member misfortune8

Neutrogena® Norwegian Formula Hand Cream (the best hand cream ever!). I have tubes of this everywhere because I can’t handle dry hands.” – bh member Sparkle 77

“I’m as fickle as a dodgy railing when it comes to beauty products. I chop and change all the time, EXCEPT for my nails – I’ve been wearing OPI Core Collection in ‘Lincoln Park After Dark’ religiously since I was a wee lass. It’s chic, rich and the formula lasts. I sport something else occasionally but nine times out of 10 I have this iconic shade on my paws.” – bh’s Kelly

  2. Testimony By Debra Tonny. How to get your ex back fast! I was hurt and heart broken when a very big problem occurred in my marriage seven months ago, between me and my husband . so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn’t love me anymore. So he packed out of the house and made me and my children pass through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back, after much begging, but all to no avail. and he confirmed it that he has made his decision, and he never wanted to see me again. So one evening, as I was coming back from work, I met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So I explained everything to him, so he told me that the only way I can get my husband back, is to visit a priest, because it has really worked for him too. So I never believed in spells, but I had no other choice, than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the Email address of the priest whom he visited. So the next morning, I sent a mail to the address he gave to me, and the priest assured me that I will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed, so he spoke with me, and told me everything that I needed to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn’t call me for the past 7 months, gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day, our relationship was now stronger than how it was before, by the help of a priest. So, i will advise you out there if you have any problem contact DR.DAVID, i give you 100% guarantee that he will help you.. Email him: or WhatsApp him on +2347040654140 Website:   


     My name is MICHEAL RACHEL. When I read a testimony online on how DR DAVID the great and most powerful spell caster helped to bring back Divorce husband or wife EX LOVER. I was wondering how this can be true, Because many have failed me in the past without any result from them. I just let the post pass by and move on to the forum. To my notice under again, Some person posted and said tested and trusted spell caster. After reading through the mail it was this same man DR DAVID she was talking about. So I have no other option than to really check up how he works. I was totally devastated when my beloved husband left me. It was like my entire world vanishing into sorrow and pain. I know it sounds weird but out of all the spell casters I contacted, he was the only one to give me that impression of being so true and trustful. More than his words, He brought my husband back and he made all my wishes come true. He is now loyal, pays attention to me, he offers me flowers every Sunday, and we often go out at the cinema and the restaurant. My husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family are living together happily again.. I will be forever thankful for turning my life from hell to heaven! I believe those who need help should get to him for help. May God continue to use you to save broken relationships. To every one with marital problems, divorce issues, lost lovers or any relationship related issues, you can contact DR DAVID and wonder about the ultimate spell caster. contact him on his Email Address @   His Website:: his WhatsApp +2347040654140
