As the end of the month rolls around, it always seems to be when you start running low on your favourite beauty products. For TBB, it tends to be every product at once – does this scream consistency?
Hitting the pan, the last squeeze of a tube or when there’s so little left you have to take the pump out and give the bottle a good thump! Running out can be a travesty, but it can also be the perfect time to reflect on whether it was worth your pennies.
The Beauty Book Team round up the beauty products they’re loving and guaranteed to purchase again;
Digital Director – Georgia’s Picks
Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask
A thick white blob. Every. Single. Morning. The Summer Fridays Mask also doubles as my daily moisturiser – yes, its that good. I have repurchased the Jet Lag mask time and time again – it’s a possibility I’m on my fifth tube. Although the consistency appears thick, it soaks in fast without leaving me with an oily residue. With consistent use, I have noticed my skin is my hydrated and plump. My favourite aspect of Jet Lag is the multiple-use aspect – a daily moisturiser, a hydration mask or a primer under makeup!
Mecca Cosmetics 50+ Sunscreen
Affordable, Lightweight, perfect under makeup and SPF 50+. Need I say more? I have tried and tested many formulas, but most don’t seem to find the balance between high SPF & texture at an affordable price point. The formulation is soft and creamy, yet the application is lightweight and non-greasy, which is perfect for daily use. This bad boy is something of SPF dreams.
Emma Lewisham Skin Reset Concentrated Even Skin Tone Serum
If you haven’t seen this baby, you mustn’t have Instagram! A product to rival all pigmentation products. Evening out my skin tone is an ongoing journey, but with Skin Reset, I am making progress. The serum is perfect for use both morning or evening, so if you forget as you rush out the door, it will perfectly slip into your night-time routine. *Adds to cart immediately.

pHformula Vita C 24 hour cream
I love using the pHformula Vita C 24hr cream in the morning as it gives me a beautiful morning glow. Unlike some, I find the citrus scent refreshing and doesn’t overpower other scented products. It actually reminds me to take my vitamin C tablet each day. An avid repurchaser here.
Mukti Age Defiance Eye Cream
I have always been a little dubious when it comes to eye creams, but this eye cream works wonders! I have tried many different eye creams in my time, and this little hero has by far provided the most noticeable results, with my eye area appearing brighter and less puffy. It contains the active ingredient Argireline, which is an anti-wrinkle peptide, working to smooth expression lines
Native Ritual’s Coconut Body Butter
This is my all-time favourite. The scent is divine and leaves me feeling hydrated all day. Trust me; your skin will thank you for it! Skincare isn’t just about the face and is just as important to spend time on the body as well. I like that the subtle scent lingers, so by the end of the day I smell just as good.
