The Beauty Basket - Skincare

I keep most of my mountain of beauty products in two sets of clear plastic drawers split into skincare, haircare, body, make up etc! However to make it easy for me to quickly grab everything I need and remember to use my new products I keep my 'products of the moment' in a white wicker basket by my mirror and the insy items in a little dish next to it. I usually keep my basket on my lingerie chest but for photography purposes I put it on my window-sill so it would photograph better. I thought this would be an interesting post as it will give you a quick overview of all my go-to products at the moment. I have two baskets, one for body and haircare and one for skincare. This post is going to focus on my skincare basket otherwise it will be a long, long list, if it goes down well I will do another one on my body/haircare basket. I haven't done a review on each product, but you can assume that as it has risen to the ranks of the white basket, I like it! In the brackets next to the item name I've included a quick description of what I use this product for. If you would like a more in-depth review on any of the products please let me know in the comments below.

Side note - my cleanser (Origins Zero Oil) and my AM (Origins Rejuvenating Treatment +) and PM (Origins Night-A-Mins) moisturisers and lip treatment (Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream) are missing as I keep my cleanser in the bathroom and moisturisers and lip treatment by my bed! I will be doing a full review on these products soon though!

  3. I am obsessed with Baby Lips! I use a nude one (forget the name but its in purple packaging) and a super light pink (called pink wink) and I am beyond obsessed. I use them instead of lipstick they are the best!! xx

  4. I am obsessed with Baby Lips!! I use two (a nude and a light pink) and I think they flatter me more than lipstick! I love them! xx

  5. The basket's a fab idea for keeping all your essentials together!
