It's fair to say that during lockdown, Amazon has been my go-to place to shop for any last minute needed things from kitchen utensils to bodycare to electronics and even groceries! I've even used Amazon to send my friends and family birthday gifts - I'll do a separate post on my gift ideas! Amazon's beauty department has
come a long way from just the american beauty range. It now has a mix of all your favourite beauty brands. Also, horraaay for Amazon and their same day/next day deliveries.

Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder
This finely-milled setting powder does a flawless job of setting my under eyes. It encourages the longevity of your base and does not give flashback in photos. You get twice the amount of product than your standard setting powder and it's available in 6 different shades. I won't go into too much detail on this powder as I already have a full review here
Aztec Indian Healing Clay
This mask pulls out all the impurities from within your skin - especially from your pores. I first used this during uni days when my acne was at its worst. It improved the texture of my skin after using it for 5-6 months consistently. As my skin is on the drier side and a little sensitive, I only kept the mask on for about 5-6 minutes. It can also be used on your body. Mix the mask with Apple Cider Vinegar for best results.

Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque
The perfect face mask to balance the oils on your skin. When I first started blogging, this mask was so hyped and when I started using it, I was so obsessed. I don't necessarily have oily skin but my pores were so visible and this mask helped shrink my pores.Read my full review here

Bio oil has been the most common skincare product to reduce scarring and help with hyperpigmentation. A little goes a long way as you only need a few drops for each use. With bio oil you won't see results overnight. It'll take at least 3-4 months for you to notice a difference. 

Bulk Sheet Masks
I love using sheet masks after a clay mask to bring back some moisture into my skin. I don't think sheet masks do much other than hydrate your skin which I absolutely love. They are refreshing, good value for money and leave the skin looking and feeling plumped and smooth.

Egyptian Magic Cream
A multipurpose cream that can be used on the skin and in your hair as it's great for taming frizzy hair. When my skin is having one of those dull days, where it's super dry and flakey, I use some of this. I think it will be the perfect cream for those with eczema as it can be used on the body too. I would only recommend using it in the areas that you need it. 

Sweet Almond Oil
Sweet almond oil is well known for treating skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis as it contains very high anti-inflammatory ingredients. It also helps with uneven skin tone, soothing sun damaged skin and soothing puffy eyes. I love using mine before bed so it can do its magic overnight.

Sacha Buttercup Setting Powder
The famous banana setting powder started with Sacha Buttercup as an alternative as Ben Nye wasn't easily available at the time. I use it to set under my eyes for that highlighted look. I use my beauty blender to press the powder in and allow it to sit for a few minutes before brushing any excess away. It leaves the under eyes looking flawless and the concealer will not budge.

Reusable Makeup Removing Pads
I recently realised how many cotton pads I go through in a week. I was constantly repurchasing my favourite cheap ones from Primark but it's got to a point that I am actually sick of buying them! I purchased these reusable ones from Amazon and its made things so much easier now. I have 2 sets and at the end of each week, I put them in the wash bag it comes it and throw them in the washing machine. A couple have stained as I used it to remove dark liners and mascara but after a few washes the stains have gone. I don't think I'll be going back to the disposables ones anymore!

Jade Facial Roller
I got my first Jade roller with a Cultbeauty box a few years ago. At first I didn't use it as much as I should have but now I can't go a facial without it. Jade rollers are used to improve the circulation around your face. It's recommended to use the roller twice a day but I use it 2-3 times a weeks - especially after a hydrating sheet mask.
