Top 5 Product Discoveries

I made it! This post is my 100th. I can't actually believe that I have written so many but here we are and I decided I wanted to do something different to mark the occasion. I started my blog with my top 5 favourite products; things that I had been using for a while and were firm favourites. Since starting my blog I have comes across loads of new products. Whether it's through reading other blogs or being sent PR samples, I have started using lots of new products and these 5 are my favourites to date.

Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter*
If you read my blog you will know that I am a tan fan! I try new tans and always go in with an open mind but often find that nothing lives up to my old favourites. I have been using Cocoa Brown for a month now and it is an absolute winner! This tan is honestly unlike any other tan I have tried, and I have tried many! The amazing thing about this is that you don't sleep with it on! No more ruined sheets, orange pyjamas or horrible dog biscuit smell to wake up to! No more tan patches on my boyfriends arms where he has dared to cuddle me! This tan develops in an hour although I leave it for 2 for a darker tan. Then I wash it off and go to bed! The colour is perfect for me and would suit many skin tones as it adapts to your own colour. It doesn't have a strong smell and doesn't leave white diamonds on your inner arm or weird snake skin marks on your underarms. It is also a really great priced product at only £7! An absolute favourite product that I fully recommend to everyone! 

MUA Undress Me Too Palette
This may be hard to believe but, before blogging, I hadn't heard of MUA. Often I moan about the awful shopping opportunities in the small town I live in and MUA is not available in my local Superdrug; hence my ignorance. When I saw this palette on other blogs I knew I had to have it. My boyfriend kindly picked this up for me while he visited another town and I have used it daily ever since. 

Bourjois Bronzing Primer
Since starting my blog I have been joining in in the Twitter chats and a much talked about product is this bronzing primer. I love this product. It is perfect for adding colour to my foundation when I am tanned, smells lovely and has a lovely feel on the skin. 

Real Techniques Brushes
Although I have photographed the Blush Brush, I mean all the brushes from Real Techniques. I don't think there is a blogger out there who doesn't rave about these brushes and when my blog began my boyfriend kindly treated me to the Core Collection. I have been a fan ever since and am slowly building up my collection. I don't have a bad word to say about these brushes. They are well made, lovely to look at and wash well. I use my brushes daily and don't know how I ever coped without them!

Amie Skincare*
Again, here I have pictured the clay mask but I actually mean the whole Amie range. Before blogging I had not come across this brand and! after recieving a sample in a beauty box, I have been lucky enough to try several items from the range for review. I love everything Amie make and find them the perfect brand for my skin. Their products are natiral, smell lovely and leave a fresh feeling face.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my 100 posts so far! Here's to the next hundred :)
