My Top 10 Products Of 2011 ♥

Hello lovelies, I hope you're all well!

As it's nearly the end of 2011 I decided to post about my favourite products from the past 12 months. I've discovered some of these products in the past year & some are long standing favourites.

Here goes! =]

Aussie - 3 Minute Miracle

I've been using this product for many years & I can't imagine not having a bottle or 2 in my bathroom! This is my favourite deep conditioner, nothing else leaves my hair feeling as soft & nourished and it's a bit of a bargain, winner!

St Ives - Apricot Scrub

This is another product I have used for many years. The packaging may be new but the formula is the same great exfoliant I have used and loved since I was about 14! I use this 1-2 times a week to keep my skin looking & feeling fresh.

Soap & Glory - Hand Food

This is one of my favourite discoveries of 2011, this hand cream is amazing! It leaves my hands feeling uber soft and it smells amazing.

Mac - MSF Natural

Please excuse my grubby MSF! I use my Mac MSF Natural to set my foundation everyday, it makes my make up last all day and gives me the extra coverage I need in winter.

Liz Earle - Cleanse & Polish

I started using this in late 2010 and I haven't stopped since! This has to be my 5th or 6th bottle and I can see myself buying this for years to come. I love using this to remove my make up at night, my skin feels so fresh and clean after I've used it & I love the 'natural' scent.

MUA - Heaven & Earth Palette

I'm sure this product will be on many peoples lists so I'm sorry if you have seen this a billion times! This is a great everyday palette that can be used for both day and night looks. This is actually my second palette as I bought one for back up incase they ever stop selling it! 

Collection 2000 - Lasting Perfection Concealer

Once again you'll have to excuse the rubbish picture, like so many the writing on my Lasting Perfection concealer has started to rub off. This is without a doubt one of the best concealers I have ever tried. So many bloggers have wrote about this & I'm so glad I finally gave in to trying it. If you haven't already picked one up then I cannot recommend it enough!

Barry M - Nail Paint

I know this is cheating slightly but I couldn't just pick one Barry M nail polish! This is my favourite brand of nail polish hands down. It's cheap, the selection of colours available are amazing and the finish is brilliant. These are just a few of my favourites, my collection is getting out of hand!

Soap & Glory - The Righteous Butter

I know I've blogged about this many times before & I'm really sorry I keep banging on about it but it's amazing! I love applying a thick layer of this after a bath, when I wake up my skin is baby soft & it smells gorgeous! If you have already tried this then I cannot recommend it enough.

VO5 - Miracle Concentrate

I only discovered this product in the latter part of this year & It's already become a firm favourite. My hair is without a doubt in alot better condition now I have started using this & it helps to combat the awful frizzy hair I always seem to get at this time of year.

So there we have it! My favourite products of 2011.

I can't believe it's going to be 2012 in a couple of weeks, the years are going far too fast now I'm all grown up =[

What have been your favourite products this year?
