Some products deserve a special place in the bathroom cabinet.
I love products that stand the test of time, the true classics that never go out of style. Treasured finds that regardless of the cost, present quality and get the job done with ease, with or without any hype. I’m sharing five of, what I think are true beauty classics that always have a spot in my bathroom cabinet or beauty bag.
The perfect nail lacquer – Butter, London.
I first discovered this nail lacquer as a gift attached to one of my favourite magazines. Loved it so much I had to seek out for more colours. Initially hard to find, I eventually tracked this treasure down in, of all places a health food shop in Potts Point, Sydney. The brand has since spread its wings in Australia and thankfully much easier to find. Apart from the fact that the lacquer goes on easily and is clearly a quality product, it is what Butter, London like to call 3 free, which means their products contain NO Formaldehyde, NO Toluene, and NO DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate), a bonus if you are suspicious of these kinds of ingredients and also want to do your bit for a healthier environment both in your internal world and the world you live in.

Lash curling – ProCurl Eyelash Curler.
There are quite a few different contraptions available these days for curling lashes. Some good, some not so much. I’ve been using a lash curler for as long as I can remember and if there is one absolute must-have in my beauty cabinet, this is it!! Not a new idea but for me an absolute classic beauty item. Some say curl before, some say curl after applying mascara. I do both. If you do curl after mascara application, then just wait a few moments until your lashes have dried before you curl and this is one tool where spending that little it extra is a good idea which is why I like this one, you’ll find it here or just click on the image.
Lashings of lashes – Dior Black Out – Spectacular volume intense black kohl mascara.
The name says it all. Black, very intense and spectacular! No hype required, this mascara truly does deliver. If it’s a statement you’re after, then on this occasion you really are getting something close to perfect. Don’t bother with the waterproof version, they’ll be no tears when you step out with this spectacular statement on your lashes.
Ella Bache’ Eye & Lip Cleanser
If you are still on the hunt for the perfect cleanser for your eye area, one that removes every last bit of makeup (super important), all the while nourishing and protecting the delicate skin around your eyes, then your money will be well spent on this absolute classic product. It has been in the Ella Bache’ range for a time that feels like forever and for good reason. Make room in your bathroom cabinet for this brilliantly gentle eye and lip cleanser. It truly is fantastic. You can find it here or just click on the image.
Lanolips 101 Ointment.
I’ve been loving lanolin for a long time and despite what you may think, lanolin has such a beautiful affinity with your skin and truly softens the skin on the feet, hands, cuticles and so good for keeping your lips beautifully conditioned. I have found this lovely product that promises to do the job simply, and perfectly. At $17.95AU for a 17.5ml tube that will last you for the longest time, it’s well worth giving it a go. Summer, autumn, winter and spring.. your lips will thank you.
