The Pink Essentials

There are some products I consider essentials, and they just don't seem to ever get that much coverage in the beauty world. Considering I use these products day in day out, I think it's about time they got the praise they deserve!

Hairbrush - Recently I've been using the Denman Tangle Tamer Ultra*. A definite step up in my hair routine from the Tangle Teezer. The main reason it's been dethroned is because it has a handle, I mean c'mon Tangle Teezer, don't you realise how essential they are to hair brushing? It manages to get rid of all my tangles effortlessly, and is now the only hair brush I use. Expect a comparison post between this and the Tangle Teezer soon!
Hand Cream - Having a part time job as a pot washer (so unglamourous, although it pays really well) really does take it's toll on my hands. Without a hand cream then I really do dread to think about the state my hands, mainly my knuckles, may be in! My favourite hand cream comes from Soap & Glory, and I'd be so surprised if you hadn't heard about their Hand Food. It moisturises my hands without them feeling greasy, what more could you want?
Toothpaste - Now this isn't technically pink, but it's close. Oral B toothpaste is something I've always wanted to try, and when it promised to whiten my teeth I had to give it a try. We aren't talking a dramatic difference, but it definitely makes my teeth look brighter and therefore whiter, while making my teeth feel clean. This is a bi-daily essential!
Razor - No matter how much I wish it wasn't true, I have to shave to stop myself getting hairy. I wish I had the confidence and the tolerance to make a stance and not shave, but I just hate unnecessary hair on my legs and underarms. Plus I love how they feel silky smooth afterwards. My favourite razors come from Venus, and I've been loving their blades that have a moisture stick on too!
Pretty Honest aka my Beauty Bible - This may not seem like an essential, but it is my beauty bible and I find myself constantly using it as a point of reference for when I'm unsure about some aspect. There's something in this book for everyone and I do view it as an essential read for any beauty lover. It doesn't beat round the bush and Sali Hughes tells you exactly how it is.

Do you have any other beauty essentials?

    I love Hand Food but I think Hand Dream Super Cream is even better! :)


  2. I bought one of those Tangle Tamers as well to see how well they compared to Tangle Teezers and they are definitely as good - the handle is such a bonus as well!

  22. I've seen Pretty Honest feature in loads of bloggers photos but no one has actually explained what it is, I love a good beauty book, will definitely be keeping an eye out for it! I've got to admit the tangle teezer but with a handle sounds great, looks like the tangle tamer is one to watch!


  23. Great post, I would like to check out this book I havem=n't heard of it before.


  24. I will check if I can find it online, thanks lovely!


Thank you so much for commenting on this little blog of mine. I read every single one and I appreciate your kind words more than I can say. I do try to reply but it's something I'm terrible at (I'm bad at texting in particular), so if you're after a swifter reply then try me over at my Twitter @jodieloue_ where I'm actually pretty good at replying.
