  1. Body Shop Honey shampoo & conditioner: smells like amazing and makes my hair all shiny and yum.
    Dove tinted moisturiser (the fakey tanny anti-cancerous growth type): doesn’t smell hideous, doesn’t go orange and is beautifully priced.
    Apple Chapstick: tastes yum, makes lips smoooooooooooooooth.
    Rose Vaseline: see previous. Also makes lips just the right amount of shiny and pink.
    ANY Rimmel shimmery moisturising lipstick: goes on like lip balm, but is shimmery and very pretty. Only problem is it wears off like lip balm too.

  2. My everyday essentials Korres wild rose 24 hour moisturising cream .. It is the BEST moisturising cream for dry thirsty skin, my toothpaste Crest 3D white with lemon extract, it tastes so good :D , I am using FA roll on Golden star skin friendly , and Nike deo spray in Pink , hashmi kajal as without kajal I feel incomplete. I love herbal essence shampoo in dangerously straight pin straight shampoo , I use zoya's herbal workshop's face wash in rose and glycerine .Korres Will rose body wash+ body butter. And how can I forget Korres 3 in 1 cleansing bottle. Its a miracle in on bottle. Love it and I use Cellinique derma skin brighteninng complex. If I'm going out I use luscious whitening base with spf 15 and P++ for bit brighter skin + protection from sun and it also works as primer.

  3. Everyday essentials are Dove roll on deodorant and I usually come back to their shower gels too. Garnier for face wipes and facial moisturiser and John Frieda Frizz Ease for when I blow dry.


  4. I won't use anything except Dove stick deodorant because others seem to itch. Also love Neutrogena cleansing wipes (the oil free maekeup removing ones), Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish and Molton Brown vitamin lip saver. Oh, and can't forget Piz Buin sun cream in SPF 30+.

    Also, it's really expensive so calling it a 'basic' is probably pushing it, but I'm onto my third bottle of Estee Lauder Idealist Skin Refinisher. Can't live without it!


  5. I can't live without rexona roll on especially Tropical Power! Also Head and Shoulders Champoo in Citrus Fresh is so amazing. I carry a little pot of vaseline everywhere I go. Another thing I can't go without is my Dermalogica Microfoliant, I use it everyday and it just makes my skin glow :)

  6. My favourite everyday skincare basics are my Origins Perfect Clean face wash (so refreshing and smells amazing), Shu Uemura's depsea water (spritz it on before moisturising and after applying make up), Simple Light moisturiser (cheap and effective - what more can you want?), all the Garnier sun creams and body moisturisers (they smell so yummy) and Vaseline's rosy tint lip salve.

  7. Oooh and my twitter is @geisharocks

  8. I take my make-up off religiously every night, using organic or natural ranges, like Yes to Carrots cleansing milk, and Boots Botanics Organic Rose Water. I use under eye cream twice a day, right after brushing my teeth - right now it is Think Happy Organic Surge eye gel. I also use a sunscreen every morning.

  9. My everyday basics are lip balms from the Body Shop and dove deodorant.And moisturiser with spf (Korres for now,but it keeps changing).

  10. I write this sitting in the bathroom sink. Before me are 5 body scrubs from various companies, and 6 different conditioners (but only one shampoo). Out of several shower gels, the one I can't be without is Waitrose Lemon Blossom & Amber, I buy it in bulk whenever I get to a Waitrose - is smells lovely. Another essential is Boots Skin Therapy emollient cream, my skin absorbs it very quickly. I could live without all make-up, apart from an eye-liner. Usually I have a Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal in black. Deodorant is something by Mitchum, toothpast is whatever is to hand. I use whatever lip balm is in my bag, be it Eight Hour cream or carmex. And because of LBR, I now use Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser, it leaves my skin wonderfully soft.I can't think of anything else I use on an everyday basis, I keep the glitter for the weekends....

  11. I love trying new products but there are a few basics that I really can't function without. Discovering Sure maximum antipersperant deoderant courtesy of a friend last year really was a godsend. Vvaseline essential dry skin lotion is the only thing that won't bring me out in a rash after waxing my legs, and the smell reminds me of simpler times.

    And sensodyne toothpaste, I really would struggle to get my daily coffee fix in without that! Oh, and I love the little soap and glory scrubby gloves for the shower, feel really invigorated after a good rub with those.

    Not particularly glamourous essentials, but tried, tested and above all trusted!

  12. lip gloss. i use it every day...everything else, other than say toothpaste i usually forget to put on or use everyday.

    My essentials are as follows:

    - Dove soap - Not saying that because it is part of the prize, but because it is the only soap I have found that doesn't dry my skin out to the point where I look like a pale crocodile. Love it.

    - Neutrogena facewashes - I love the clay mask/wash combo, but have just started using the oil-free facial wash which is excellent.

    - Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara. My lashes are long and thick, but have blond tips. This stuff makes them look amazing.

  35. Hello! I am currently re-doing my basics because most of my old basics just dont work for me anymore! Anyway, I love Dove deodorant (original scent) it smells like candies and also their shampoo! Dove is a great brand!

  36. Great give away. My essential product is my blistex daily lip conditioner, I carry one everywhere., @dannii10101

  37. My number 1 essential is actually already a dove product. I use the "Refreshing" one in waterlily and mint. It smells really good when I'm running around at work. I can't stand b/o on others so I always make sure that, if nothing else, deodorant is used!
