I just can't live without...

Ok so I'm sure I could live without these... but I really wouldn't want to!!

Monu Cleansing balm, priced at £35 is without a doubt the most luxurious cleanser I have ever used. When in the pot this cleansing balm is very thick, but almost like magic when applied to the face it simply melts into an oil that deeply cleanses the skin and removes all traces of make-up and impurities. This balm contains evening primrose, blackcurrant and rosehip seed oils which are all a rich source of essential fatty acids which help to maintain your skins suppleness and elasticity. Simply was off with water to reveal beautifully soft clean skin.

Saicara Body Fizzy Gel, moisturising has never been so much fun. This fast absorbing, crackling ice foam gel cools and refreshes the skin. I use mine after a long day at work on my feet, the cooling effect is brilliant - but my favourite thing about the product is the noise it makes (it sounds like crackling fireworks!). The gel is completely non-greasy and absorbs on the skin straight away so you can put it on just before bed or getting dressed without a worry. You can also buy this fizzy gel in gold - perfect for holidays to give those sun kissed legs a gorgeous glow.

Batiste Dry Shampoo, oh how you've saved me on so many occasions! I don't think I even need to explain the genius that is dry shampoo to you, but just in case you've been living under a rock... 'Batiste Dry Shampoo banishes oily roots, giving dull, lifeless hair the makeover it needs without any water. A burst of Batiste not only refreshes hair, but leaves it full of body and texture too. So whatever last minute plans come up, you can grab life by the hair' Batiste, I bow down to your greatness! 

Montagne Jeunesse Cranberry and Aloe Vera Balm, the most lovely lip balm I've used all year. I never knew until last week that Montagne Jeunesse even made lip balms!! The balm is lovely as it slides on easily and stays for hours, leaving your lips feeling healthy and soft.

Even if you don't want to admit it, you probably do suffer from the odd blemish or two! The new Nelsons Pure & Clear anti-blemish range has the best anti-blemish face wipes ever! They actually get all of your make-up off, and leave your skin feeling fresh without stinging. Definitely a must have, even if it's just for your weekend bag!

White Glo Toothpaste (and toothbrush!), this toothpaste is super popular in Australia and is making it's name over here in the UK. White Glo now have a special formula for you tea and coffee lovers to not only prevent but also to treat stained teeth. They also have really great toothbrushes, ones with a little sucker on so you can stick it to the bathroom tiles! 

What products do you swear by?
