Top 5: Beauty products I don’t want to live without

Fat Mum Slim /


I’m in Malaysia at the moment. Kuala Lumpur to be precise. I’ve got that ‘I slept upright in increments of 15 minutes on the plane but I’m too excited to sleep now’ feeling going on. I’m here for work/blogging, so will be sure to share the sights as they happen. If you follow me on Instagram that’s where I’ll mostly be sharing {if you’re not on Instagram then just click this link and you can see my pictures there}.

While I was packing yesterday I thought I’d take a snap of my favourite beauty products. I’m not fancy. My sister is fancy enough for the two of us. Her beauty bag is as big as my suitcase, I’m sure of it. Here are my 5 products I kinda don’t want to live without.

One: Fixaderm Skin Repair
I was sent this product about 6 weeks ago, and I really love it. Before I went to speak at Problogger I had knocked my nose and I had a big scratch on it. Ugly. So I put Fixaderm on it and it fixed it up almost overnight. Like magic. I use it on my hands before bed sometimes and on any scratches. It’s available at health food shops for around $14.95.

Two: Garnier All-in-one BB cream
This is the easiest skin pick-me-up I’ve ever come across. Foundation often makes me feel dirty. I’m fussy. But this just feels like moisturiser to me, but gives my skin a lift and a bit of coverup. BB cream is like a tinted moisturiser and concealor in one, it evens out the skin tones and brightens the skin.

Three: Bepanthen Nappy Rash Cream

As an eczema sufferer and a chapped-lip survivor this cream is life-changing. My Ma went to see a dermatologist about something and mentioned the problems I have with my skin, and they recommended this nappy rash cream. It’s the perfect lip balm. Will fix cracked and chapped lips overnight. It’s cheap as chips and available at the pharmacy.

Four: Lanolips Lip Tint
Sometimes lipstick is just too much for my fair face, but a tint is the perfect discovery. This Lanolips tint adds a little subtle colour and also nourishes the lips as well. Winning.

Five: Toni & Guy Shampoo and Conditioner for fine hair
It’s taken me 32 years, but I’ve found the perfect Shampoo and Conditioner for my hair, and I kinda want to marry it. I have fine hair, but lots of it. Just like I don’t like my face to feel dirty with foundation on it, I also don’t like my hair feeling dirty {yes, I’m a little bit weird}. These Toni & Guy products give a clean feeling and leave my hair with body and shine. I like it. Available at supermarkets.

What are your ‘don’t want to live without’ products? Have you tried any of the above? And have you been to Kuala Lumpur – Is there anything I must do, eat or see?
