The Unsung Heroes

The everyday heroes we take for granted. The unraved about but in no way shape or form unloved products that we pick up every day without even realising just how much we depend on them.

Batiste Dry Shampoo £2.99 Boots - The original. The best! I should be sponsored by Batiste. I’d estimate my mane’s around 50% hair, 50% dry shampoo. This life saver keeps me going between washes and adds some much needed texture.

Wet Brush £11.99 Cult Beauty – Tangles? What tangles! This wonder brush cuts through my fine, tatty tresses with complete ease and quicker than anything else I've ever tried. Simply put, it's a life saver!

MAC Paint Pot Soft Ochre £16 Debenhams -  This has been in my kit for ages but it wasn't until I went to the London Make Up School that I really appreciated its magic. I'm all about the multi-tasker. This one primes lids, covers imperfections, intensifies eye shadow and makes sure it.stays.put! Oh, and it pretty much works on everyone.

OPI Nail Envy £13 BeautyBay – Rescuing my nails my since 2003. There’s three nail envy's in my life – original, nude and pink – and they’re more or less on constant rotation. Left to their own devises my nails are weak, brittle and bendy. A bi-daily dose of nail envy helps to keep them strong, nourished and far more attractive.

MAC 217 Blending Brush £20 Debenhams - Okay I have raved about this one a bit, but not as much as it deserves. It’s my number one most used brush magic wand. I mean look at it, it's clearly loved/battered (note to self, maybe it's time to buy a new one). Blend, buff, apply – it does it all. If you only have one eye brush in your collection, it has to be this.

Liz Earle EyeBright £13.50 John Lewis – Liz, I’m warning you, if you ever discontinue this, there will be a riot. My morning saviour! I may be awake, but my eyes have other ideas. Eye Bright helps to wake, revitalise and most importantly, de-puff.

Anastasia Beverly Hills £15 Cult beauty - An integral part of my brow arsenal. The tiny brush head is perfect for filling in brows and the bristles are firm affording more precision than the average. It's the perfect partner to Anastasia's Dipbrow Pomade, but it works a treat with powders too.

L'Oreal Fibrology Shampoo £1.97 Superdrug - Holy grail shampoo right there! Many claim to thicken and volumise, this one actually does! When I started using this in early 2014 I was astounded by the results, nearly two years later, it's still my go-to. I do think my hair has gotten a little used to it, so the benefits kinda plateau, but I'll switch it up with another shampoo for a while before returning and reaping the benefits,

What are your unsung heroes? I'm always on the look out for new finds.
