Most Loved Beauty Products of 2017

If I lost all my makeup and skincare collection these are the items I would repurchase without hesitation. These are my most well-loved and well-used products of 2017.

Getting the right shade of contour and bronzer is important to me as I have such pale skin. The bronze shade within this beautiful Art Deco-inspired packaging looks so natural on me, I don’t have to worry about look orange. I’ve also had plenty of compliments on my highlight while wearing the one from Charlotte Tilbury, it’s a wonderful lit from within gold shade.

As I’ve got older, I just want eyeshadows that look pretty and are minimal effort, CT has answered these prayers. Her cream eyeshadow pots contain beautifully whipped cream colours that can be applied with your fingers and last all day. I have the shades Bette and Jean, I’d love to purchase the other shades in the near future.

This is a blogger favourite and for good reason. It covers purple eyebags and hides pesky spots with ease. I’ve used expensive concealers from Tarte and Armani but I always come back to this one.

I’m a floozy when it comes to foundations, I switch and change all the time but Luminous Silk is one I have repeatedly gone back to in 2017. It’s a beautiful formula that isn’t heavy but has enough coverage to hide all my skins sins. It’s a satin finish that gives life to your face without leaving you an oily mess. If you haven’t tried it yet, get yourself a sample!

During 2017 I went off high street mascaras as none could give me both volume and length I need. Armani’s Eccentrico Mascara is well worth the price, it doesn’t smudge and gives you false lash effect eyelashes.

I picked this Sephora own brand powder up in Paris last January on a whim and it turned out to be the best blurring face powder I have ever tried! It gives a filter-like appearance to the skin and it’s suitable for the under-eye area too. It doesn’t keep you matte all day, I usually blot anyway but looks excellent in photos.

I had a pot of this cult Kiehl’s product in my stash for ages and finally put it to good use when I started my Roaccutane journey. My skin was so dehydrated and tight, this skincare item put the comfort back into my skin. I’ve continued using it after my acne treatment ended as I can’t find a moisturiser I like better!

This little eye cream is a recent discovery. After having eczema on my eyelids, I needed something that would soothe the itch but also hydrate the eye area without irritation. The Ultra Eyes provides this but it also works well under makeup, not disrupting concealer or eyeshadow.

I’ve been sceptical about setting sprays in the past but I’m really enjoying MAC’s offering. If I have gone a little too heavy on the foundation and powder a few spritzes of this just helps to refresh the base makeup and helps it look less cakey.

After shaving my legs, I suffer from terrible itchy and dry skin, no matter what razor or shaving product I use. The only thing I have found that will soothe the skin instantly is Lush’s Dream Cream. It’s a lightweight yet highly moisturising body lotion. I’ve heard from other bloggers that it works well on eczema too.

At the start of 2017, I started my second course of Roaccutane to combat my serve acne. As it had done previously, my skin became extremely dry and sore. Cetaphil Moisturing Cream came to the rescue. It’s very affordable and available in Boots in the chemist section. It’s a heavy-duty moisturiser that gives the skin a barrier from the cold weather and further irritation. Since finishing my Roaccutane treatment I have continued to use Cetaphil for eczema. I’ll always have a tube of this on hand just in case.

Sometimes my skin likes to throw a number of concerns at me all at once, dehydration, dryness and spots. When this happens I reach for my Clarins Lotus Oil, my thirsty skin drinks it up and my spots are calmed overnight.

This product isn’t very glamorous but it has been a lifesaver. During my Roaccutane treatment, I had very dry eyes and I also work at a computer, so a few drops helped to revive my eyes quickly.

  1. I really like Lush products and the Mac spray! Those were my best products of 2017 too! :)
