Beauty Favourites

Here is a little round up of my latest beauty favourites so far (although there's a hair product which doesn't count as beauty, I may slip one in from time to time!)
The 'All about eyes' cream by Clinique is the one I'm using at night at the moment. If, like me, you need something that's a bit more heavier that will give your eyes that extra needed moisture, I'd suggest you give this one a whirl. Although it's not quite an 'anti-aging' product, so if you are concerned about anti-aging factors, I'd combine the cream with another product. I use Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair eye serum first, before applying the Clinique cream.
Estee Lauder - Advanced Night Serum. I don't think this product needs much introduction. This is on the top of every beauty editor's list and for a good reason. For me, I feel like my skin is a lot more rested in the morning after I use this. I have a lot of late nights (ugh, I'm still trying my hardest to get at least 7 hours of sleep a night but it's more like 6...here's to trying!) so this is a godsend.
I love Aesop. It started off when I visited a salon in Shoreditch and the smell of the cream was amazing - a herbal/medicinal/citrus-y mix. The cream has a smooth texture and the packaging, although simple, just screams understated luxe. The first thing I did after the manicure was head to Space NK to buy a tube of this. I'm on my 7th tube, and I'll never be without this. This bad boy...is the bigger version - for my dressing table at home.
This, my friend, is the secret. Bumble & Bumble Brilliantine. I use it mostly to give my hair a bit of definition or whenever I have any stray flyaway hairs, this is my weapon of choice. You really don't need a lot of this so use sparingly. But if you ever need a general sheen just to finish off your style, this is what you need. I also love the smell of this...!
Laura Mercier - Ambre Vanillé Hand Cream. I was given this product by a friend for my birthday and actually, I don't know what I was expecting but I was quite surprised at how long this cream lasted after just one application. I used to have eczema when I was younger and I was slightly worried this product would be too much for me (anything that's perfumed heavily can trigger my eczema). Whilst the vanilla smell is quite strong, it certainly didn't irritate my skin, and it's a pleasure applying the cream as the texture was like whipped butter - this is my perfect choice after the gym at the moment.
 Jurlique - Rosewater Balancing Mist. I picked this up in Melbourne last christmas but I hadn't gotten around to using it until recently. The rosewater scent is refreshing and it's perfect for when you need a bit of a moisture hit. I've now taken to using the mist as a setting spray after I've applied make up.
Ok, so the last isn't a beauty product but this is still one of my favourites. Diptique - Baies. Always a classic.

Hit me up - what are your favourites at the moment?
