Desert Island Beauty Products!

Everyone knows the game…”if you were stranded on a desert island, which 5 foods/celebrities/records would you want with you?”. I decided to turn the idea around to beauty, and as it was for my beauty YouTube channel, I upped the limit to 10 items!

It was actually much harder than I anticipated, choosing 10 products – I tried to be semi-practical when it came to things like sun protection and dry shampoo, but my beauty-loving side quickly took over and the Naked palette worked its way in there!

Here’s a full list of my Top 10 products:

John Frieda Sheer Blonde Brightening Shampoo
John Frieda Sheer Blonde Enhancing Conditioner
Simple Sun Sensitive Sun Cream
Batiste Dry Shampoo
Models Own Nail Polish in Indian Ocean
DKNY Be Delicious Perfume
Urban Decay Naked Palette
ELF Small Smudge Brush
Benefit They’re Real Mascara
Natural Collection Raspberry Ripple Lipgloss

A switched-on viewer asked me in the comment section of the video why I didn’t include a moisturiser – I was hoping someone would pick up on that! I decided that the Simple Sun Sensitive cream could double up as a moisturiser. When I used the range on holiday last year, I constantly used the products to moisturise as well as protect and they worked a dream.

In all seriousness, it did actually make me take a step back and realise which beauty products I really think are essential. It’s wonderful to have a proper collection of make up, but it really is possible to work with a smaller budget and range. It’s a good bit of advice to bear in mind when people ask me about budget beauty!

I’d love to know which products you’d take to a desert island – if you don’t want to list 10, just let me know your top 3!

Stay Creative,

    There! That was nearly all completely practical ^_^ I mean, if it were sunny 24/7, the #1 thing I’d want would be a damn good sunscreen. The next thing I’d want would be a way of keeping everything moisturized, because dry skin is magnified x100000000 in severe heat. And if i were stranded, I’d definitely want a way of keeping clean, although conditioner wouldn’t be my first priority because that just promotes dandruff which would suck if you were stuck on an island, so instead I’d bring a very gentle shampoo that won’t strip oils. And finally, I’d want something that reminds me of home, which would be the ELF Color Stick (it smells like the orange creamsicles I used to eat as a little kid ^_^)
