Non-essential beauty products

Do we ever feel like we are overdoing it? There are so many tools and beauty products on the market that we can incorporate into our daily routine that has some sort of benefit. Here are the non-essential beauty items that make it in my essential list.

Foreo Cleansing Device
One of the first expensive beauty investment that I purchased 5 years ago that I still use daily. The foreo has pulsing vibrations that help massage your face and removes dirt oil and makeup. It is waterproof which is great to store in your bathroom and is hygienic with its silicone bristles. It maximises your cleansers abilities and has anti-ageing benefits. I have the rechargeable version and I've only charged it three times. What I like about the foreo compared to other cleansing devices is that it's not abrasive on my sensitive skin and makes your cleansing time relaxing like a mini facial.

RapidLash Eyelash Enhancing Serum
Having Asian genes I am not blessed with long beautiful lashes and always felt I needed eyeliner to make my eyes more awake. I purchased Rapidlash over a year ago and I have kept repurchasing, It gives me thicker longer lashes without even needing to reach for false lashes during a night out. It does make me really sad when my lashes naturally fall out but my lash cycle is much quicker and you can see the growth. I have recommended Rapidlash to so many of my family friends and it truly does work.

Rose Quartz Stone
The jade roller has been on the market for a while and I have previously tried it but its width wasn't what fits my face shape. I have big cheeks and with jade rollers being quite small it became a hassle to incorporate into my beauty routine. The head also fell off which made me reach for it even less. I purchased the Rose Quartz stone a couple of months ago and have been using the Gua Sha facial method day and night. I have seen a huge difference especially on my double chin and I've noticed my face it less swollen face and my skin is more smooth. I use the rose quartz stone when I apply my thick hyaluronic acid serum or facial oil to make the stone glide across my skin.

Brow Enhancing Oil
The BBB Nourishing Brow Oil is one of my recent new additions to stimulate my brow hair growth. This is an overnight treatment that is filled with essential oils: rosemary, sweet almond, sandalwood and lavender. I roll this over my brows every night and my brows are much softer compared to thick stray strands that I had, it's also not sticky and is quickly absorbed, I have noticed a few strays coming up on my patchy areas but I need to use it longer to see the full effect.

What non-essential beauty products and tools have you been using? It's said that it takes 3 consecutive days to get into a routine and I truly believe that so stick to it. There are a few more tools that I want to try in the future such as LED and silicone masks.

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Until next time!

  1. I use revitalash and it's definitely an essential to me... my lashes were nonexistent before it and now they're like falsies. Could never live without it now!
