Beauty Tools and Extras I’d Be Lost Without

Today I thought I’d talk about a few staple tools and products in my beauty collection that I couldn’t be without!

beauty tools i can't live without popbands tweezerman shiseido lush lip scrub blackhead remover

First up is the Tweezerman Slant Tweezers. I got these in Boots last year and before that had been using some from The Body Shop. Tweeezerman slightly edge it for me though! They are so sharp and come in so many different prints and options such as the mini versions and the pointed tweezers! I don’t actually use mine as much as I used to since my beautician told me to stop tweezing between eyebrow threading appointments but sometimes I can’t help myself and these get the job done quickly and pull the hair out from the root first go!

I got a few Popbands in a beauty box way last year and haven’t looked back since! They are so comfortable to wear in the hair, don’t snag and don’t hurt to pull out! They come in so many different colours and prints so sorry mine is a boring old black one but sometimes you can’t beat it! Day to day I wear my hair down but I love these for the gym and for throwing my hair up in a bun when I get in from work! They are lovely and stretchy but still hold my hair tight without hurting it and don’t leave a kink when I take it out!

Primark Headband
This one sometimes goes hand in hand with my Popband as I couldn’t be without these two when I’m doing a facemask! The Primark headband keeps any flyaway hairs off my face so they don’t get covered in whatever facemask I’m using!

I've had this for absolute years now and it’s amazing! It has two different sized ends depending on the size of blemish or blackhead you want to go to town on (nice) and with a little pressure on the area it extracts any nasties under the skin! Obviously we all know you shouldn’t really squeeze or pick at spots but this is better than using your fingers!

I got this last year to use as a brow brush and while at first I was a little unsure of it as the handle is so long and slim I've soon come to love it! It works really well to neaten my brows before I use my ABH Dipbrow Pomade or a powder in them and is so easy to clean and dries really quickly as I find a lot of these spoolie brushes can get filled with foundation from round my eyebrows quite quickly! The only negative to this brush in particular would be that because of the length it only just fits into my makeup bag that I take when I’m staying over anywhere. Because of this I did have to do a bit of bending the brush head before taking this photo to straighten it out but it came back into shape quickly and felt sturdy so I wasn’t worried about it snapping! I also sometimes use this brush to comb through my eyelashes if my mascara looks a little clumpy to it’s a great multiuse product!

I upgraded to these when my usual No7 pair were feeling a bit loose after years of abuse and if I’m completely honest I saw the “s” and though I was buying the infamous Shu Uemura eyelash curlers! All was not lost though as these are pretty good in their own right! I obviously can’t compare to the Shu Uemura ones everyone raves about but these give me lots of curl and volume ready for my mascara. I will sometimes blast them quickly with my hairdryer if I want even more of a curl but I usually just start at the base of my eyelashes and squeeze then move to the middle, squeeze again and do a final squeeze at the tips of my eyelashes! No wonder my old ones got loose!

lush lip scrub review bubblegum

I don’t know where I’d be without this little pot of goodness! I have the driest lips ever and a stick of lip balm is never far away when I’m about! I do still get dry skin on my lips though and using this scrub every morning gets rid of any flakes and gives me a great base to apply lipstick on smooth lips! The pot looks tiny but you only need a little bit so it lasts for ages! I also won another pot in the lovely Velvet Blush’s giveaway a few months back so I’m sorted for a good while with one of my favourite products!

Have you got any of these products? Tell me what beauty tools and products you’d be lost without!

  4. I don't have any of these, but I'd like to try that lipscrub! I've been completely dependent on little elastic hair ties lately - they're perfect for when I work out and wear my hair in two braids!

  7. I love the lush lip scrubs. I used to have Bubblegum and really need to repurchase as I miss having it! I need to get my hand on Tweezerman tweezers as everyone says you can't go back when you start using them!

  8. I get a kink as soon as I put my hair into a ponytail so the popbands sound perfect, I needed something similar for an event I'm going to as well! Sometimes we find great things when we're not looking and those eyelashes curlers do sound really good. Thank you for the mention, hope you're having a good week :)

  24. Tweezers and curlers are also my must have and the brands you have here are my favourite also :)! I had that Body Shop Blackhead Remover but just couldn't get to grips with it at all. I ended up making my blackhead so much worse so it got chucked in the bin x

  30. Fab post! I have had that Body Shop Blackhead Remover for years but I just don't know how to use it effectively. And I never thought to use it on spots. I will definitely be giving that a go and if I can get it to work on that properly, I will owe you a latte ;)

  31. These are great picks! I love the LUSH Lip Scrub, I have the popcorn flavour at the moment. I have been looking for a good pair of eyelash curlers as well actually. I like Shiseido as a brand, so I think I'd like to try them. I love the tip about heating them up too, definitely going to be doing that when I buy myself a pair.:)

  36. I've never used blackhead remover, I should stop squeezing them :) Whenever I finish a mascara, If I like the wand of it, I clean it and keep it. It comes really handy, and I don't need to get an extra brush :) My lips get really dry, I want to try Lush lip scrubs, I've heard a lot about them.

  37. I totally agree with you about Tweezerman tweezers, they're the best! My brow game would also be nothing without a spooley, either! Brushing through them makes such a difference to how natural the brows look when you use one after applying a pencil/pomade/powder :)

  39. If there's one tool I absolutely can't go without it's my ABH brow brush. I've tried so many other brow brushes, and none worked as well as that one.
