There are quite a number of beauty products that a beauty ed can’t live without. In fact too many – it’s called the accidental beauty junkie’s “job hazard”. Over the years, many people have often asked me what I use. I have used so many countless products but there are just some things that stick. These 5 don’t even begin to count but for starters, here are a few that I currently love and absolutely can’t live without.

Hello, I'm a beauty junkie!
Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm 75ml, $37
I’m addicted to the scent of this hand cream. It has a gorgeous blend of fragrant botanicals and skin-softening emollients that keep hands and cuticles moisturised. I love to use this especially when I travel.
Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions Breakout Control Targeted Blemish Spot Treatment, $52
The only other product that works for my occasional blemish spot is tea tree oil. However, I am not too crazy about that anti-bacterial scent. This one however works like magic. Perhaps it has to do with the newly-improved formula that’s powered by 10% sulfur (which is the maximum over-the-counter level). Truly my beauty SOS.
Make Up For Ever HD Loose Powder, $61
My makeup is not done until I have a final sweep of this loose powder which I’ve been using for a couple of years. It lightly blurs facial imperfections and leaves an invisible finish on the skin.
Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipstick in RD 144, $38
What can I say? I can’t live without my red lipstick and this Asian shade of red really pops. It’s one of the best red I’ve ever tried.
This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, $44
I’m a sucker for anything that promises a good night’s sleep and I love pillow sprays. This one really puts me to sleep much quicker than counting sheep.
