Mummy's beauty favourites

This is a bit of a different post from me. I read a few beauty blogs and am always checking out what people are raving about. I often buy products based on word of mouth to try out for myself.

Here are my go to products that I use on a daily basis. They help me go from slummy to yummy-ish mummy.


These are my three musketeers. I can't rave about these products enough! A few months ago I was having a nightmare with my hair. It's very fine but there's lots of it. I changed my shampoo countless times but it was still feeling greasy and frizzy. My mum works in a salon and suggested these products to me. My hair has felt amazing since. Soft and shiny and the Tame Frizz means I have no fly aways! Hoorah!


I loved my Bioderma makeup remover but it was on the pricey side and I was having to order it online. After hearing that the L'Oreal Skin Perfection was a pretty good dupe I had to give it a go. It's a fraction of the price of the Bioderma and I've almost finished my first bottle. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and clear without drying it out. I'll definitely be buying another bottle.

This is my third bottle of Peaches & Clean and this one is almost finished! Safe to say I love it. I use it every morning and it really wakes me skin up. It's lovely and creamy. I definitely think it's made a difference to my skin. I've always been quite lucky with my skin but I find that if I stop using this for a couple of days I start to get the odd blemish.

I use my Peaches & Clean along with the Botanics Microdermabrasion Polish. This was on offer in Boots so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I've also almost finished this one and will be buying some more. It's a great polish, not too harsh on my skin and it has helped to cleanse my skin. I must admit I used to sleep in my makeup quite a lot but I feel like this polish has really helped to clean my pores.

This moisturiser was only £4.99, it's a recent purchase so I haven't noticed a big difference yet. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect moisturiser so if anyone has any recommendations I'm all ears.


I'm obsessed with anything coconut! Scented or flavoured if it's got coconut in it I'm all over it. This shower wash is lovely and creamy and the coconut smell just makes me feel like I'm on holiday. Not bad for a Monday morning 6.30am shower.

I've been struggling with dry skin of the tops of my arms recently and this body butter has really sorted that out. It smells divine and is so thick & creamy. Like many of my other beauty products it's almost finished but I have my eye on the coconut one next.

I have to admit I rarely wear fake tan these days. Before having Ava I used to be a bit of a fake tan connoisseur but these days I just can't be bothered with the hassle and the smell. However Fake Bake Flawless is the best fake tan I've ever used. It's easy to apply, doesn't leave streaks and best of all, doesn't leave you smelling like a camel.


I've mentioned this Jo Malone perfume before and I'm still loving it. It's quite Summery so my other go to scents are Givenchy Play which I like to wear in the evenings or Miss Dior Cherie.

I love to paint my nails and these are my two favourite Autumnal nail varnishes.
Essie- Thigh High, a gorgeous shimmery burgandy shade
Jessica- Magic Spell, a shiny red colour. It makes me feel all Christmassy!

Do you have any of these products? What are some of your favourite beauty products?

I love this post!! You have a great range here ~ I'll be definitely trying the soap & glory cleanser as well as the microdermabrasion cream! I used to buy higher end beauty products but just can't afford them now 😞 I do miss my Lancôme moisturiser though. Have you found the perfect mascara yet??? I've heard the benefit one is good.
