Like a lot of people, I try to be conscious of the number of products I buy and use. I’ve become somewhat of a minimalist. Well to some I may be anything but, but over the past year, I’ve made an effort not to buy too many beauty products. I believe less is more and I believe in quantity over quality. So below you will find 7 of my absolute favourite beauty products from 2017. Listed are 7 beauty products you need in your life for 2018!
Moroccanoil Treatment Oil available at BeautyFeatures
I am always very apprehensive about using oils in my hair as I am usually too busy to use them and never have the time to let them work their magic. But this is a really fast absorbing intensive hydrating mask that helps restore and strengthen the condition of your hair. Can be used in wet or dry hair and I can’t tell you the number of times I lathered it in my hair just as I was leaving the house to give you that sleek and shiny look for your hair.
Bare Minerals Original powder foundation available at Debenhams
I’ve always used full coverage foundations and when Nicola from Renew skin clinic recommended that I use this to try let my skin breath during my Image skin peels. I decided to to try and buy. This is a buildable foundation designed to go from sheer to full coverage. This gives you a natural looking dewy finish and has SPF 15. This is one of my absolute favourite products that I tried in 2017. I think a lot of us Irish girls grow up with the idea that we need really heavy foundations, we really don’t and this year I’ve learned less is more in terms of beauty products and foundations.
Image Clear Cell Cleanser available at Renew Aesthetic Clinic
A salicylic based foaming gel cleanser that cleans makeup off, gently exfoliates and gets rid of excess oil. This product is LIFE CHANGING and I really mean that! This along with getting the Image Acne peels from Renew Skin Clinic totally transformed my skin. I still have the odd breakout, but it’s less aggressive and definitely doesn’t last as long. A lot of us are guilty of overspending on makeup but not on skincare and I used to be guilty of this. If you suffer with breakouts or with acne and you could only afford one product this year then I would invest in the Image clear Cell Cleanser. It retails at around €35.50 and will last you up to six months.
Image ageless total retinol-A creme available at Renew Aesthetic Clinic
A concentrated blend of polypeptides and retinol that rejuvenates, repairs and resurfaces. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles and eliminates dark circles and discoloration on the skin. I’ve never used an anti-wrinkle cream where I actually felt the results prevail so rapidly and within as little as a few days. My skin feels smoother and looks a lot younger, in my opinion anyway. I can’t recommend this as my go to anti wrinkle product for acne prone skin in 2018.
Serum 10 skinceuticals available at Renew Aesthetic Clinic
Vitamin C based serums and products are known to promotes collagen production. Helps combat the signs of ageing because of the high level of antioxidants. Aiding collagen production reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Serum 10 skinceuticals A lightweight serum that is formulated with antioxidants and combined with ferulic acid and includes 10% vitamin C. Developed under the Duke Antioxidant patent. A lot of vitamin C can be too sticky or greasy and can cause breakouts in some cases. Skinceuticals quickly sinks into your skin without leaving a greasy residue on your skin. I noticed a big difference in my skin from using Serum 10 SkinCeuticals over the past few months.
COLAB dry shampoo
The One thing I always have in my desk drawer at work is dry shampoo, well most of the time anyway. I am constantly running out as yes you might have guessed it, I am addicted to using it. So it would be fair to say that Colab dry shampoo deserves to be in my top 7 beauty products in 2018. COLAB is an award-winning dry shampoo created by a team of beauty experts and renowned blogger Ruth Crilly. A fast absorbing formula that freshens your hair in an instant without leaving a chalky residue.
