I have received so many emails from lovely readers asking me about my beauty routine. I’ve resisted doing a post on this because I think it’s really boring but it’s one of the things I love reading about the most on other blogs, being the perverted voyer that I am, and I assume the same goes for my whacky readers. So here goes… A visual diary of a day in the life Lady Smaggle’s bod…
Brush teeth – Close Up is the BEST.
Floss – Colgate non-fancy floss hurts the least. It’s nice and thin and doesn’t feel like you’re jamming knitting wool in between your teeth.
Mouth wash – Listerine is the bomb. Literally. I truly believe that Listerine stops me getting sick during winter.
CG Tinted moisturiser in Light – I have been using this everyday since I was sixteen. I’m all about sheer coverage.
CG Mineral One Minute Make Up Powder – This is a recent addition to my routine and it stops that nasty nose shine that I’m prone to develop through out the day.
Bloom Eye definer in Black – This eyeliner is amazing. I challenge any company to send me their eyeliner and make me love it more than this. I dare you.
Cult mascara Maybeline Great Lash Mascara – I try other brands but I keep coming to back to Great Lash. I just can’t find anything better.
Cedel hairspray – Yes. I actually use this. It’s fabulous.
Aquim hand sanitiser gel – By midday my hands are either covered in snot if I’m teaching or acid if I’m making jewellery so Aquim is fast becoming a favourite product. I’m a heart beat away from carrying it in my handbag.
Vaseline Intensive Care lotion – Daddy Smaggle is a plumber and for as long as I can remember there has been a pump bottle of this on our coffee table and I have to say that, considering his profession, Daddy Smaggle has some of the finest baby smooth hands that I have ever seen on a middle-aged man. I now have a pump bottle on my coffee table.
Dove Body Moisteriser – This goes all over my body and then I wrap myself in my bathrobe while it absorbs. Delish!
Nivea Fresh Deodourant – I LOVE this but it’s pretty expensive for deodorant so most of the time I buy Pink Mum in the spray bottle.
Olay night cream – Mamma Smaggle has been moisturising every night and day since she was thirteen and now she barely looks a day older than that. She’s not much of a make-up wearer but if there is one beauty habit I’m stealing from her it’s this. She’s also used Olay since forever so this product comes with Mamma Smaggle approval.
Aesop Fabulous Facial Oil – This stuff is BEAUTIFUL.
Body Shop Elderflower Under-eye gel – I’m on the up-hill climb to 30 so I’ve GOT to start taking care of the skin under my eyes. This gel is so cooling and calming right before bed.
Lucas’ Paw Paw Ointment – Well der.
Sunsilk Anti-Frizz Leave in Conditioner – I like my anti-frizz products to be creamy. You may notice this is the Spanish version and if you look closely I believe it says ‘ant-poof’ on the bottle. He he.
VO5 Matt Clay – I love this hair product because being a gal of the curly haired variety most hair care companies think I want to look like I just stepped out of a pool of grease. Um… why? So thank god for the geniuses at Vo5 who realise that Pee Wee Herman ain’t sporting a look a want to copy.
Givenchy Organza – This is my scent. I like to smell like cookies.
What about you muffin bum? What are the fave products that you can’t live without? Please include links and share the love! Tell us everything… I love a good beauty routine goss…
Love Lady Smaggle
