Favorite Luxury Beauty Products No.1

Everyone enjoys little luxuries in their life.  I for one am guilty of owning things where the price tag is a bit much when a drugstore product can do the same job.  There is no harm in treating yourself.  Keeping it real, none of these products are triple figure numbers because I could never bring myself to own anything to that extreme.  Bar one product, all of these are under £50.00 with a fair longevity, justifying the cost. 

1. Ouai Rose Hair and Body Oil - £26.00

I do have a detailed review here on my blog but this product easily takes the number one spot.  Although the price may cause individuals to be hesitant, it is a long lasting product which means you do get a lot of bang for your buck.  It nourishes your hair to such an extent that flaunting it in its natural state with little intervention is no longer a live horror story.

2. Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Dry Sheet Mask - £18.00

Another product for which I do have an in-dept review available here.  Initially, a dry sheet mask may appear to be a gimmick for marketing purposes.  However, it is indeed completely dry until application.  I assume the heat from your skin activates nourishing oils on the sheet which transform tired and dull skin to the best glow up that no highlighter can beat.  It provides a natural, from within kind of radiance that lasts for about 3-4 days.  Although these are extremely pricey, you can reuse one mask up to three times.  Many beauty vloggers have demonstrated using this mask post application of makeup in the middle of the day to freshen up their face which I have not personally tried.

3. Marc Jacobs Dew You Coconut Dew Drops - £32.00

If you cannot justify spending so much for a face mask then this is your next best bet.  I've tried a range of liquid highlights and illuminisers in my past and have struggled to find one which does not look like I bathed in glitter, appear oily later on in the day, or ashy.  The beauty of this highlighter by Marc Jacobs is that it hydrates and nourishes the skin whilst providing that sought after glow.  I prefer to mix it with a bb cream or tinted moisturiser but it works well when mixed with a foundation.  In addition, you can spot-highlight the top of your cheek bones, nose, forehead, cupids bow, etc.  with ease as it blends like a pro without much tug and pull.  A detailed review will come soon.

4. Earth Tu Face Face Balm - £60.00

I was hesitant to mention this product as I am loyal to my Nivea Soft Cream but unfortunately I ran out.  Out of desperation I reached for this balm that came in my Birchbox x Vogue 125 box to try.  I didn't even realise the price tag and I was applying this twice a day: once in the morning and once in the evening.  It is a miracle.  It is a great compliment to drinking water and helps maintain your skin to good quality if you forget.  I aids in radiating the skin and channels that inner glow due to the ability of nourishing the skin at a cellular level.  It is a very steep price of course, as is every other item in this post, and has a very pungent scent.  Therefore, I do limit myself to only using it at night and masking the scent in the morning with makeup or applying significantly less with a patting motion.  I believe it arises from the sandelwood and rose petals.  This combination perhaps does not create a pleasant aroma.  Overall, it does indeed smell organic. 

5. Aerin Rose Lip Conditioner - £24.00

Even our lips need nourishing.  And what better product to use than a conditioner that is thick, viscous, and smells like a bed of sweet roses.  My lips love to make it seem as though I've never seen water in my life.  This is the best treatment I've found to tackle that issue but it is very expensive so I do use the product sparingly as it is in a tube. Hence, you can run out quickly.
