Recent Beauty Product Rediscoveries!

14 August 2018

Every now and again I get really stuck in a rut with my products and forget to try new things or even go back through some products that I haven't used in a while. I then decided to go through all of my makeup, skincare and hair care and found some hidden gems that I haven't used in ages and have added them back into my Beauty routine. Here I will show you all the products that I've recently rediscovered. 


I have used this product on and off for years and with all the different liquid lipsticks that have come out recently sadly this product just got pushed to the back if my drawer. When I was going through all of my lips products and binned the ones I don't use anymore I couldn't let these ones go. They were the first liquid lipstick that I tried out and started my love affair with the product. The formula of this product is slightly different to other liquid lipsticks that I have, it doesn't dry completely matte which makes the product very comfortable to wear. This liquid lipstick comes in 45 different shades which you can definitely find a colour for every skin tone. It's also a cruelty-free product making it perfect for everyone. Since rediscovering this product I have actually ordered a few more colours (Prague, Montreal and Copenhagen) to add to my collection.  

When I first started my makeup collection years ago I had a big obsession with sleek makeup especially this Powder. I probably brought 3 of these back in the day, I don't think I actually have used this product for over a year because I totally forgot I had it until my product purge. I used to use this powder on a night out to add a little shimmer and glow to face and I loved it. When I rediscovered it I started using a small amount of it on my face to give me an extra glow, this actually looks really lovely during the summer. Another reason why I always used this product is that it also contains an SPF of 15 which is great to use during the day as just a touch up. This powder also comes in different shades ranging from light to dark, making it a great product for everyone. 

A few years ago I didn't actually do my brows (I know! Can you imagine) and this Pixi Brow Duo was the first product that I brought for my brows. This product has a slanted Brow pencil and also a gel to set the Brow hairs into place. I really liked that you get two quality products in one and for £15, you would not even get a separate Brow gel or pencil for that price. This pencil comes in 4 different shades ranging from blonde to soft black which is the colour that I have. The gel side of this product is the part I use the most, it has a small brush applicator making it much easier to coat all of the Brow hairs without getting the product all over your face. I do usually prefer using micro pencils for my brows for the outline of my Brow but then I use the Brow pencil to fill in my brows quickly and easily. When I found this product it went straight in my travel makeup bag for my weekend away. 

Skin & Body Care

This summer I have become obsessed with keeping my skin as smooth and hydrated as possible as my body can get pretty dry during the hotter months so I've been using a lot more different body scrubs to help remove dead skin cells. I was going through the drawers I have in my bathroom and discovered that I still had some product left in a old favourite of mine, the body shop strawberry body polish. This prioduct used to be my favourite Scrub until I discovered all different scrubs and I sadly just forgot I even had this one. What I love about this product is firstly the smell, the strawberry scent is just to die for! This Scrub is a gentle exfoliator meaning it isn't too rough for the skin even for people with sensitive skin. Made with cold-pressed strawberry seed oil helps to keep your skin extra smooth and soft after use. This has now got a key place in my shower! 

When I was first in college studying to be a beauty therapist I started using the simple range of skincare products on my skin to start off my skincare journey. I only used it for a short amount of time before I started changing it up for different brands and never really got the chance to see how good it was for my skin. When I went away for the weekend I only had a small luggage allowance and decided to take a small bottle of this toner with me and rediscovered my love for it. This toner contains vitamins and other skin loving ingredients without any artificial colours or perfumes. It's a very gentle toner to use after cleansing, I mainly used this toner to make sure all my makeup is off of an evening and in the morning I use it to refreshed my tired skin. This toner has a very fresh scent which I love as some toner have a very strong clinical scent. This little toner is definitely going to be added back into my skincare routine. 


When I was about 16 everyone became obsessed with these Victoria Secrets Body Sprays and everyone had a different scent that was sprayed around during lunch breaks. I had a few different scents in the past but Endless love has always been my favourite. This has alsways been in my room but I just stopped reaching for it until I had a clear out and couldn't bring myself to throw this one away. I started using it again and now I'm obsessed! This scent contains apple blossom and ylang ylang giving it a sweet but strong scent. It's the type of scent that can be used daily whether it's at work or for a day out somewhere. Rediscovering this scent has made me want to go and try out all the new different scents they they have come out with (they now sell this product in Superdrug!)


Over my years being a makeup lover (and hoarder) I have used a lot of different makeup brush cleaners and like to change up my cleaning routine quite often. Rummaging through one of my drawers I found this gem of a product, This was one of my favourite brush cleaners before I started using my brush egg when you can get here. I find this cleanser actually helps the quality of my brushes by keeping them feeling really soft. It also removes all traces of makeup and removes bacteria which is key for a good brush cleaner. I tend to use this by applying a few pumps of the cleaner onto a paper towel and rub the brushes until they are completely clean!

Rediscovering products that you have previously loved is just as good as finding a brand new product that you love. Have you rediscovered any products that you haven't used it ages recently?

  7. The NYX soft matte lip creams are amazing - I only recently bought them and tried them for the first time, and I'm gutted I never tried them sooner! Like you said, they're so comfortable to wear ☺️ I also didn't realise Sleek had a powder that had SPF 15, I didn't even know powders could have that 😂 that's so cool though!
