Best of Beauty 2015

Okay this is a bit late but I’m blaming the weather! I aint seen daylight this year, so getting some decent quality photos has been impossible! Still, it’s never too late for a round of up all things beauty. Here are 2015’s greatest hits…

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue

My most loved/used/raved about product of 2015. It is unequivocally the best base I have come across. It’s my daily go-to. I’ve barely reached for any other since last April, and the ultimate acid test, I’ve already repurchased! For the full low down read my review, but in a nut shell it’s a lightweight base (think BB/CC) that gives the most radiant glow EVER.

Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash £27 END 

2015 was the year I finally acquired Aesop's cult hand wash. Most people will struggle to get excited over a hand wash but this aromatic blend is simply intoxicating. I look forward to washing my hands and it doesn't leave them feeling nasty and dry! The price tag, ouch I know, but it's a massive 500ml, which has lasted me half the year and still going strong. Confession - I hide it when friends comes round. Sorry.Not.Sorry.

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Pillow Talk

I wasn’t much of a lip liner gal until I discovered this one. Plump, voluptuous, sexy lips with zero effort. Pillow Talk is a damn right colour match for my lips (see it here) so I can use it to contour/fill in the gaps, regardless of the lip stick shade.

James Read Sleep Mask Tan | £25 Marks&Spencer

THE first facial tanner that doesn’t clog the pores or cause black heads. Slap it on before bed and wake up with a realistic bronzed glow and better skin to boot. It's my winter saviour!

Nails Inc Swan Street | £14 House of Fraser

Back in March I called this the future cult classic. On paper I wouldn't love this near white polish, but in reality it's a beaut! A simple, pale, minty blue that just works! For me it's up there with Baker Street and Bikini so teeny.

RapidBrow | £31 Boots 

2015 was the year of the brow. In fact, I’d say the last five years have been ‘all about the brows’ but last year, my brows grew back with avengence thanks to this lil’ wand of magic. This wonder serum coaxed back hairs I ain't seen since the 90s! Full review and before and after pics here.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow | £49 John Lewis

2015 was the year I went a little CT mad! Some hits. some misses, but this is the jewel in the crown. I'm yet to prize it out of my hands long enough to do a full review. Like all of CT's products, it's stupidly expensive but worth the dent.

Clarisonic Smart Profile* | £199 FeelUnique

I finally realised what all the fuss was about. So much more than a giant toothbrush, the Clarisonic Smart Profile is the nearest you'll get to a pro facial at home. It cleans deep, deep down and leaves my skin squeaky clean and radiant. See it here.

  6. Clare, this post is dangerous! I'm really trying to tighten my purse strings (as much as is possible for a beauty junkie) but this has given me the urge to go out and spend spend spend! Im hoping to move into a new place this year so the Aesop hand wash would be perfect for that... Going to have to put my laptop away now in an attempt to resist! Fabulous post though, as always xx


Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it. I read all of them and reply to any questions x
