Desert Island Beauty. What can't you live without?


Hello guys and welcome to another blog post on All Things Bright & Beautiful.

This week's feature I have named Desert Island Beauty, What can't you live without?

I had the idea after someone asked me the other week, if I were stuck on a desert island and I had one item what would it be? And my first answer was my red lipstick! What if Johnny Depp came along to rescue me? I would have to look my best wouldn't I?

For this feature I have asked 5 people who are my friends & family to give me their one beauty product they can't live without. 
I've asked what their all time favourite product is, how much it cost them, how they use it, what it does for them and what marks out of 10 they would their can't-live-without product.

So here are my friends and family's verdict:
