Top 5 Beauty Classics!

Okay, so let's be realistic; we have all had those 'OMG, do you still remember that lipgloss we used to wear when we were in high school? I loved it, where did they go?' Tough market out there, survival of the fittest! Beauty launches come and go but there’s some iconic products that have most definitely stood the test of time. These classic beauty essentials from Chanel, Crème de la Mer and Jo Malone that every woman should own are still standing strong after how many years?


  1.  EVE LOM Cleanser
Yes ladies, you're filthy! You begin your day with a brisk flash of water and end it by rubbing yourself with a soggy flannel! That face is groaning from a long day at work/school/university, whatever it may be. Don't you think it's time you invest in a cleanser? After doing a little research on cleansers, Eve Lom is suggested to be the best; the exact reason why this brand has stood the test of time. It removes make-up and cleanses your skin, tones and exfoliates, all using a little muslin cloth. This will most certainly de-grime you!  

2. CLARINS Beauty flash balm


It's brightening, tightening and suitable for all skin types. Containing olive and witch hazel extracts, Clarins beauty Flash balm helps smoothen the skin’s surface, ideally prepping the skin for your base application enabling your foundation to stay put for hours. Loved by celebrities like Cindy Crawford, Demi Moore, Kylie Minogue and Kate Moss, Beauty Flash Balm is a definite radiance booster.

3. CHANEL Nº5 Eau de Parfum Spray


Uncompromising and magnetic, Chanel Nº5 Eau de Parfum Spray reveals a seductive, intimate and intensely brilliant scent that will get you hooked which is why this is my favourite parfum! Countless bottles of this particular parfum can be found lying around my room and only god knows just how much I've spent on it. You can't blame really because it is long lasting, spray it once in the morning; smell good all day long. Offering delicate accents and a luminous oriental fragrance, this is a definite must have.


4. JO MALONE Lime Basil and Mandarin body & hand lotion

How about this very simple and chic packaging? If this doesn't win you over already, you are a lost cause. A wonderful, luxurious product that is sure to make your skin as smooth as a baby's bottom..really! The price tag on this is rather high and is not something I would be able to buy for myself on a student budget. I was lucky enough  to have received this last year for my birthday and I have to, it is just divine. This product would make a great gift.

5. CREME DE LAR MER The Moisturising Gel Cream


Super moisturizing but fresh and light at the same time, delivers the same radiance and suppleness that made the original Crème de la Mer a legend, leaving skin deeply hydrated and refreshed; this cream is a definite must have which is ideal for warm weather climate.
