I put this post on the topic list for #SBBC because I think there are a lot of products that we use more frequently than most yet they never get mentioned. Here are some of mine…
Boots Cotton wool double faced pads: I love these cotton pads from Boots. They’re larger than the normal ones so I don’t need to use as many. They’re also frequently on ‘buy one, get one half price’ so I stock up on them then even though they are inexpensive in the first place.
Surgical spirits: I use this for spot cleaning my brushes. I have also used it for cleaning permanent marker off a white board in work as advised by my science-y sister. It worked a treat!
Mane ‘n’ Tail Hoofmaker handcream: I keep this on my makeup desk as the surgical spirits/acetone/etc can be tough on my hands so it’s good to have a handcream nearby.
Brushes in mesh container with brush guards: I have a massive collection of brushes and I use brush guards to keep them in shape when they are drying or when I am travelling. They’re particularly good for bigger brushes to ensure that they don’t get out of shape.
Lint free gauze wipes: I use these for when I do my shellac nails. They’re great because – as the name suggests – they don’t lose lint pieces and ruin makeup or nails!
Johnson’s cotton buds: These are great for fixing makeup mistakes, tidying up eyeliner/lipstick etc and just generally handy for having around the place.
