Best of 2014 - Part One

Hi everyone,

I'm going to kick off 2015 with a Best of 2014 round up, and this will be in two parts. I hope you all had a fabulous New Year.

This was the first Micellar water that I'd tried, and I really enjoyed using it. It's fantastic at getting rid of all the pollutants that my face picked up through out the day, as well as getting rid of any last bits of make up after cleansing.

Simple Soothing Toner
This is a really gentle, but basic toner; as well as being cheap and cheerful. I've gone through one bottle of this, and I'm currently working on my second bottle. If your struggling to find a nice gentle, but don't fancy paying an expensive price tag then have a look into this one, as its natural and it also doesn't have no chemical nasties in the ingredients.

Caudalie Gentle Cleansing Milk
This is my second bottle of this and I've been working through this during 2014, and I still haven't been able to finish it. It's really gentle and soothing on the skin, and its also formulated using grape water. I really like to use this as a hot cloth cleanser, and it really works for me.

Aveda Scalp Benefits Shampoo
This is my second bottle of this, and I really enjoy using this to give my hair a really good cleanse. This is like a treat for my hair, as it is quite expensive. I only purchase one bottle a year, as one bottle of this will last me the entire year.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair (new formula)
This stuff works wonders for me skin during the night. I really enjoy putting this on before my moisturiser, and just let it sink into the skin for a minute or so. The following morning after using this it seems to have given my skin a bit of a pick me up.

Body Shop Silky Camomile Cleansing Oil
This is great at removing make up at the end of the day, and it does it effortlessly with very little ease. I'd recommend you giving this a go instead of using make up wipes, as there's no tugging or pulling as you message it into your skin, and then emulsify it using warm water. To finish off you then just take it off using a warm flannel. Its also extremely gentle on the skin, and suitable for all skin types.

Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel
I really enjoyed using this shower gel during the Summer months, as its so zesty and reviving. Perfect for a summer morning pick me up. If you enjoy the scent of oranges, then you might like this.

Geogio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
This foundation has a semi-matte finish, and it also doesn't have SPF; so its ideal if you want to wear this foundation on a night out. The foundation itself has a light formula, but a medium coverage, and you can also build it up if you want to. 

YSL Touche Eclat Foundation
This foundation has a luminous finish, but not enough to make you look like a glitter ball, as well as having SPF. The foundation has a light to medium formula, as well as medium coverage. You can also build the coverage up. Its nice to wear on a night out, but it could cause a bit of flash back from cameras due to the SPF.

Ojon Restorative Treatment Plus Hair Mask
This is great if you want to give your hair a bit of a pamper, but it is on the expensive side; but you do only need to small amount. I love to use this when my hair is feeling a little dry. It says you can leave it on for 20 minutes, and then rinse it out; but I've left on a few hours as a deep treatment, and my hair was really nice afterwards. 

I hope that you really enjoyed reading the first part of my 'Best of 2014' rundown. Part two will be up next week.
