best of 2014 beauty products

I know I’m a liiiitle bit late on this, but I have wanted to do a “Best Products of 2014” post for a while now, and I am finally getting around to it. There have been so many great products that I have tested out and fallen in love with over 2014, that I know I just have to share them with you.Some of them you would have already seen featured here on the blog, and some I haven’t had the chance to write about yet. I have split this into 2 posts, because otherwise it just would have been too long- so there is a “Face,Body and Hair” and “Make-up” favorites. Todays one is all about the face,body and hair products that blew me away last year. Lets get right in shall we?

Facial Products

I change-up my face routine every now and again but these 3 guys have been my firm favorites throughout the year. The Dermalogica Ultracalming Face Mist was a real discovery for me last year. Its pretty much like a toner, and I love that it has the function of spraying straight onto the face. No mess, no fuss, I keep this next to my bed the whole year around and spray it on before putting on moisturizer and after cleansing. Speaking of cleansing, this dynamic duo is whom I have to thank for, for having good skin this year. I have mentioned the Kiehl’s Calendula Cleanser here, and I am still not even half way done with it and I am still loving it.Another dream Kiehl’s product that I am in love with is the Super Multi-Corrective Cream. I am just about done with it, and I am planning on buying another jar because it is that good. It has the loveliest, softest texture that goes on like a dream in the morning before I do my make-up, and with great ingredients like beech tree extract it keeps my skin looking fresh and firm.This is actually recommended for anti-aging, so hey I guess I am preventing that in the long-run too by using this product. Kiehl’s overall has been an amazing discovery for me this year, and I hope to explore even more products from the brand this year. And of course the majestic Clarisonic. I am planning a full-blown post on this device as it is about to be launched in South Africa. It really is worth all of the hype and it really is that amazing.It takes a literal minute to do every night and morning and the results are visible within 2 weeks of using it.Invest in this baby, now!

Body Care

I am super lazy when it comes to body care and really stick to a good body butter all year around, and The Body Shop Honeymania Body Butter has been my favorite since 2013 already. I love its scent and the rich texture of the butter- its a real treat especially during the winter time. And the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream is an all-around miracle. I’ve written about the lavender version of it here, and recently its been re-packed into this gorgeous gold jar. I use the 8 cream anywhere and everywhere. On my face when its having a rough time, on my hands when they are dry and even on the soles of my feet  when I can feel they are getting a bit cracked. The 8 Hour Cream should be in the beauty arsenal of every lady because it is one of those cult-products that are worth having.

Hair Care

Hair Care is super important to me and I had a hard time narrowing this one down, but these 3 products took the cake for me last year. A real discovery for me was the Tangle Teezer- this nifty little tool has transformed my hair routine, and it’s really,really great! I literally feel no pain when I brush through my hair, and it small enough to fit into my handbag. This was gifted to me for my birthday by the lovely Bronwyn and thanks to her I can now tame my locks. On the hair oil side, as I mentioned in this post, the Inoar Extreme Premium Oil was my favorite throughout the year. And the Pantene Anti Frizz Smooth-Cream was another fantastic find, that not only works like a charm but is also super affordable.

What were your favorite products for 2014?
