Holy Grail | Lucky Seven...

The words 'Holy Grail' get thrown a lot around the blogosphere and YouTube - that product that you purchase time and time again because it is just that amazing, you cannot live without it. Over my time, I've procured a few, some have been discontinued, some have ended up disappointing me in the end; however there are seven (lucky seven, if you will,) that I simply cannot live without. 
First up is a red polish I can't be without; the Rimmel Salon Pro Kate in Rock & Roll. A perfect true red that suits my skin tone, I can wear year round and lasts a long time before chips set in - plus it's under a fiver.

The Trilogy Rosehip Oil is something I've gushed over countless times; I adore the Antioxidant+ variation but also adore the standard version too. Great for hydrating, reducing scarring and redness plus just being an overall plumper and radiance booster - I can't be without it.

Nuxe is a brand that I consistently go back to for great skincare and their Reve de Miel lip balm is one of my firm favourites. A perfect over night treatment or under a matte lipstick, it smells amazing and does it's job. I also like the stick variation for keeping in my handbag and I also have one up for grabs in my giveaway, here.

Origins is a skincare brand that never seems to fail me; however the Drink Up Intensive mask is a true gem - an overnight hydrating mask that come morning leaves you with plump, fresh looking skin. You can either use this after moisturising or in place of your night moisturiser; either way it works a charm and smells ah-mazing.

Make up wise, I can always count on the HD Brows Eye & Brow palette, featuring four shades so you can get the perfect shade for your brows, but it also works as a nice neutral quad (so perfect for travel,) and it will not budge all day. The pigmentation is amazing and feels buttery soft so if using for eye shadow, a dream to blend too.

Texturising sprays have been all over the beauty blogger world; in particular the purse-weeper Oribe; however I found a pretty amazing one and I'm sticking to it. The Vo5 Dry Texturising Spray gives a nice tousled effect whilst also adding a little bit of volume too.

Last but not least, since my favourite foot butter cannot seem to be located anywhere online or in store I had to find another foot cream and it's one I cannot be without; Heel Genius from Soap and Glory. Whether I'm putting this on after a shower or bath or putting it on just before bed followed by putting on some socks for a more 'intensive' treatment; it just works and smells so gorgeous too.

So those are my Holy Grail products, although a special shout out goes to the Caudalie Beauty Elixir too; so tell me what are yours?



  1. The Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm is one of my holy grail products too, it's the best lip balm I've ever tried and really keeps my lips moisturised. I really want to get my hands on the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask - I've heard so many great things about it! x

    1. It really is a great mask - you should try and get it! x

  2. I love this post! Makes me think about the seven products I would choose. The HD palette looks beautiful!


    1. It is a beaut of a palette, so buttery yet does not budge. :)

  3. What a lovely post! I recently bought the hand cream Hand Food from Soap & Glory and I'm totally in love with it! I had to buy it in England because it's not available here in Belgium. I should have bought Heel Genius as well. It seems such a great product too!

    1. I love hand food too - but I love heel genius more. Such a good find if you can get hold of it!
