My Unsung Beauty Heroes

The title says it all really. Today I'm shining the spotlight on some products which really don't get as much love as they deserve around these parts. In fact, with a couple of exceptions, I'm pretty sure most of these have never been mentioned on the blog before, which is not a good thing! That ends today though as I talk you through some of my daily loves, from two hairbrushes you need to products that smell amazing enough to eat...

Tangle Teezer-I think this colourway is the Sugared Almonds one but it's not coming up online so it may have been limited edition. This was a repurchase as my old Tangle Teezer was getting a bit worn and just wasn't performing as well as it used to. Like the Wet Brush (below), this is great if you have thicker hair that's prone to going a bit unruly or getting tangled up. Funny that..Seriously though, this is another brush which won't make brushing your hair feel painful and for that it gets a lot of love from me.

The Body Shop Wonderblur*-This is a relatively new product from TBS and it reminds me a lot of Instablur. I use it as a primer underneath foundation but you could also use it under something like concealer or a BB cream if you want a lighter base. It helps to smooth the complexion and allows your makeup to sit on the skin better. It's a little bit silicone-like but if that doesn't bother you too much, you should get on well with this product.

Urban Decay 'All Nighter' Setting Spray-This was another repurchase but I opted for the 'all nighter' spray in a trial size instead. The reason being I am off to Australia in May and I know Urban Decay should be available there by then, so I can pick up a full sized one on my travels. Maybe. This spray is oil and paraben free *insert thumbs up emoji here* and seriously does help prevent your makeup from migrating all over your face. 

The Wet Brush-I can't believe this hasn't been mentioned on NW before. This may just look like your normal, run of the mill hairbrush. Believe me when I say, it isn't. I feel like brushes shaped like this are typically notorious for being painful on thick hair but this one is honestly the gentlest brush ever. As the name suggests, it's designed to be used with wet, 'just out of the shower' hair but I find it performs just as well on dry hair, especially with a bit of this in the mix.

Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray-You may have seen me raving about this on Twitter a bit this Summer as I've been spritzing it whenever it got too humid. Aside from being refreshing on your face, it also acts as a lightweight toner of sorts. It's also great for calming angry skin, so if you're one of those people who's prone to ruddy cheeks after exercising or having a hot shower, you need this in your life.

The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry Scrub* available March 30-One of my favourite ranges from last year is returning to The Body Shop's shelves again for a limited time. Who didn't love feel obliged to purchase the entire range last year? The scrub is absolutely delicious, as is the body butter, but more on that next week. They're the perfect pairing for hydrated, silky smooth limbs.

-Have you used any of these products before? What did you think of them?
