My top 5 HOLY GRAIL products 2018


Although I have quite a large collection of products, there are ones that I reach for over and over again. Tried and tested, the following 5 products are items that I can’t live without (big call, I know)…


*Drum roll*

  1. Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peels

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it until I am blue in the face, the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Daily Universal Peels have completely changed my skin. I have been absolutely obsessed with these little miracle pads for about 18 months. The patented two-step formula is unlike anything else on the market and it delivers the most effective skin care treatment I have ever used. After using these, my skin is refined, brighter and fresher while my pores look diminished and fine lines reduced. I cannot sing the praises of the Alpha Beta peels enough. I would gladly give up all other skincare products to be able to use these forever… well, these and a touch of moisturiser 😉


2. Fudge Clean Blonde Purple Toning Shampoo

I couldn’t tell you how much tubes of Clean Blonde I have gone through over the years. This shampoo tones my hair like nothing else. Not only that, but it doesn’t dry out my fine hair, nor does it make it dull or frizzy.  I am pretty easy-going when it comes to hair, but one thing I cannot stand is brassy tones, this little mother sorts them out quick smart. My shower is never without this indigo beauty.

3. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light

I call this my facial in a compact. This beautiful powder gives my skin the most stunning natural glow. My skin looks fresh, bright, radiant and just glowing with health. I don’t know how Hourglass do it, but there is some kind of sorcery in this powder. I use a light dusting all over my face as the last step in my makeup routine and the result is an ethereal radiance that needs to be seen to be believed.


4. Becca Under Eye Corrector

I have been raving about this corrector for years now. This glorious little pot rids my undereye area of discolouration, it brightens and refreshes without caking or creasing. I use this every time I apply makeup, and even often when I don’t. You can read more about it here, along with the rest of the Becca Bright Eyes range.


5. Beauty Blender

There are many imitations, but no one has quite replicated the magic that is the Beauty Blender. I refuse to apply my foundation with anything other than my trusty sponge. I find my base looks more seamless, foundation looks natural and there isn’t any threat of cakeface. The Beauty Blender blends out cream products effortlessly and is the perfect tool for baking. I never travel without one and always have plenty of backups on hand. Nothing, I mean nothing, compares to the Beauty Blender.


I would love to hear what your top 5 Holy Grail Products are.

      It is so good under concealer to correct those grey and sallow tones. I love it x

        I tried it yesterday at Sephora, I looked too white, but maybe that bc it was applied over not under, so you apply this first then add concealer on top?

        I can see how that would brighten but look natural instead of what I was looking like

          Yep, it’s just a corrector so I usually apply before foundation or concealer. But the colour is actually not bad on me, so I don’t need to add anything on top, except a touch of powder to set. There are two different shades now too. X

            Ohhh! I used the light which would probably be perfect with my foundation on top as it wasn’t too bright but slightly pink.. I’ll have to try it again with something on top

    Thanks for sharing 🙂 I love Hourglass products!! The Dr. Gross peels unfortunately made me break out though.

      That’s a shame! Do other AHAs break you out? Thanks for reading x

          That’s interesting! I know someone else who breaks out from the Dr DG peels, I’ll have to let them know about PTR. Thanks x

    Did you use the Dr Dennis Gross wipes while you were pregnant? Are the ingredients safe to use?

    Hourglass really does make some of the best powders out there!
