For some reason this week has been the one when loads of my favourite products have run out, so I thought I’d run through the empties before I restock. I always try not to replace with the same thing because I have so many things to test, but it’s difficult with old favourites and these will definitely be making a reappearance because they’re just flat out wonderful.

1. Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation, £10:

I’m actually on my third bottle of this, which proves how much I love it. It is just the most perfect everyday foundation that gives skin flexibility, glow and light to medium coverage. I love the scent, the lightness of texture and the resulting comfort on the skin. This is the foundation that proves the point that you don’t need to spend a fortune on your base any more when more purse friendly brands knock out the goods like this.

2. Daniel Sandler Watercolour Creme Rouge Blush, £15.50
This gives cheeks the most lovely, natural looking glow with a sheeny finish but without being over oily. I always use the Daniel Sandler Water Brush to apply it (or any other blush for that matter – it’s a revelation in blush application) and for my skin tone, it is a near perfect pink/peach blend.

3. Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush In Shade 20.
I’m horrified to find that this has now been discontinued. Damn it, Maybelline.

4. BioEffect  EGF Serum, £125.

This is the product that has basically replaced all other skin care – other than when I really want to try a new moisturiser or serum I stick to it like glue and always end up coming back. This must be about bottle six…

5. Pantene Aqua Light Shampoo

Don’t you hate it when brands start messing about with your favourite products? Pantene Aqua Light was the first high street brand that I’d used that made my hair feel and look as good as if I’d spent £20 on products rather than £4 or so. So, why on earth did they reinvent and repackage Aqua Light making it a product for fine hair, which I don’t have? So Aqua Light no longer exists in its original formula, or if it does it has been relabelled. How very, very ANNOYING.
