My Online Shopping List

For the past few weeks or so I've been meaning to pick up a few of my essentials. Every time I even go anywhere near Boots my mind goes absolutely blank and I cannot remember anything I need to buy, instead my brain is filled with a 'want cloud'. I always leave empty handed or with pretty things but lack the essential items I need to use along side them. So I came up with my online shopping list. 

My theory was that if I take the time to gather all the items I need, take a picture of them, edit the said picture, then post about them in their own blog post, then surely this would trigger my memory in a much greater way than trying to remember them all by myself. So here goes...

My Online Shopping List

These are all the products I have repurchased over and over again. My essentials.

Garnier Pure Toner, Garnier Fresh Essentials eye makeup remover, Boots Cotton Double Faced Oval Pads, BaBylliss Kirby grips.

I have had a soft spot for Garnier facial products for many years now. This Garnier Fresh Essentials eye make-up remover was probably the first eye make-up remover I ever bought. And no matter which new product I'm recommended, without fail I always return to this one. It's also amazing for when I'm suffering with my allergies, and my eyes are the main culprit. To apply cotton pads soaked in this is the most soothing and refreshing treat for my eyes I could ever wish for. 

This Garnier Pure Toner is also a new favourite. It''s only the second bottle I've ever bought, but believe me it's the best. It really does help with my spots, and best of all it doesn't break me out. It's probably not for everyone, but for me my face only ever feels really clean if it's slightly tight. I guess that's what you want when you live with oily skin. 

These Boots Cotton Ovals are my absolute favourite. I must buy at least 3 packs at a time and usually they are on some sort of offer. I love that they do (or don't as the case my be) what they say on the tin - they really don't shead. 

Babylliss Kirby Grips are my all time favourite. I always struggle when it comes to these. I go through so many as I seem to sprain them all the time. But these are very strong, sturdy, and stay in you hair. Pretty much exactly what you want from a hair grip. They also come in a handy container.

Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance Leave-in-Conditioner, Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush

I use this leave in conditioner by Aussie every time I get out of the shower. I love it. It makes brushing long hair an absolute doddle, and smells divine. 

And Finally Batiste Dry Shampoo. This product needs no introduction. So many people rave about this product, and I am amongst them. Blush is by far my favourite scent though. 

Fingers crossed this little trick works. 
What are your essential items? I'd love to know!
