2013 Favourites Revisited

2013 Favourites Revisited

New Year 2013 seems like a long time ago to me! I hadn't really gotten into blogging and had barely discovered the online community. As you can see here, my photo skills have greatly improved!! I've always been into beauty products and regularly try out different products, but I always gave them a wee google beforehand, which lead me to the blogging community in the first place. Last year I wrote about my favourite products for the year, so I decided to revisit them and see if I still use and love them!
2013 Favourites Revisited

Bioré Pore Strips

These have been one of my favourite products for years and I constantly mention them on here and recommend them to friends. They honestly clear out blocked pores so well and I still use them at least once every two weeks.  

I never got round to trying their other products, but recently my mum bought the 1 minute face mask and the ash cleanser, which I have tried and quite like! The 1 minute mask is a really good idea and it warms up nice and quickly for a skin treat!

Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment

I actually haven't used this in a few months! When I got my hair done in October, I started using the Schwarzkopf Omega Intensive Mask to keep the ends nice and moisturised. I don't really use heat on my hair so it doesn't get too damaged, so once I finish the Schwarzkopf masks I want to get the Lee Stafford Treatment again. It really helped to repair my hair after it was damaged from being highlighted and my hair grows so slowly so hopefully it will help it grow a bit longer!

MAC Viva Glam IV 

This was my first MAC Lipstick and still is one of my favourites! Because it started to run out I for some reason don't wear it as much, even though I can easily go and buy it again. It's the perfect deep plum tone with a frosted finish. As I got this as a present, I wasn't aware that it's actually a charity product! 100% of the selling price of MACs Viva Glam Lipsticks go to the MAC AIDS Fund, which help those living and affected by HIV/AIDS. (More information can be found here) I think it's amazing how something as simple as buying a lipstick can help to save lives!

Essie Nail Polish

Again, I haven't used this in a while as my nails are a shambles after getting Gels for my birthday (my own fault, I took them off myself instead of going back...) so I don't want to draw attention to them by painting them. But Essie is still my favourite nail polish brand by far, as they last a week without chipping! I can't see me buying any other brand of nail polish to be honest!

Do you still use your favourites items from last year? Or have you got new products you swear by? Let me know in the comments!
