    Hi Everyone

    As we are all here loosing weight, I think its mega important that we also take good care of ourselves too. Beauty products are one of my favourite things in the world and i've tried a fair few!

    This thread can be a place where we post our fave beauty products and let the world know about them. They don't have to be mega expensive, they should just work really well.

    Ok so I'll go first. The one thing I never leave my house without is Carmex lip balm. Its a miracle in a pot, if your lips are chapped it fixes that and it gives you a nice gloss without being gloopy.

    My next essential is Elizabeth Arden's ceramide time complex capsules. These look bizzare but when you open them up they contain a face lift in liquid form. Nothing stops me looking rough like these things!

    I am fanatical about ROC eye cream - have been using it for years - I have virtually NO undereye lines and I'm 41! Also love protect and perfect - been using for 5 weeks now and do see a difference! The best handcream in the world has got to be Occitane shea butter - expensive at £12 a tube but it lasts for ever ...... have just discovered M&S fake tan - the lighter shade is great for blondes - its cheap - and looks really natural.

    I'm a bit of a Dr Hauschka fan so most of those products, but number one would be the Quince cream - I love the smell :rolleyes:
