We live in a rented flat and the furniture is...interesting. For the past six months I've been using a set of plastic drawers as my bedside table (it's actually where I store all my make up/skincare/hair things). Last week I decided I was sick of it so I moved one of the little tables in the lounge into our bedroom. I did have a tin full of 'essentials' on my old bedside table but this one is a lot smaller so I've had to be a bit more selective.
The Yankee Candle is in Soft Blanket. It's the first time I've tried this and I have to say I do quite like it. It's subtle but nice for bedtime. I've got a huge Yankee Candle addiction so if you'd like to see any candle posts, do let me know and I'll happily share my thoughts!
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream
This is a smaller tube I received in a swap. I just wanted to try it to see what the fuss was about and I have to say, I'm super impressed. I use this as a lip balm before I go to sleep but I also use it on any irritated skin. This was a godsend when my nose was all sore and flakey from having the cold. This little tube is almost empty now and I will definitely be replacing it.
Bath & Body Works Pocket Bac
I love these little bottles! I usually have one in every handbag and room in the flat however I'm down to my last two so I'm being a bit cautious with them. This particular scent is Jelly Doughnut but I like most of the sweet or fruity scents.
Burt's Bees Lemon Cuticle Butter
I don't use this every single day but I really should! It smells delicious and it's not as greasy as I expected it to be.
LUSH Pow Wow Lip Scrub
I purchased this a few months ago and I really liked it initially but I've since found something better (watch out for a comparison post soon!) so I'm trying to use this up. It's dried out quite a lot now. It smells like a lime opal fruit sweet (does anyone else remember when Starburst were Opal Fruits?)
Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector
I reviewed this recently here and it's my lip gloss of choice at the moment. I use this when I'm not using my 8 hour cream.
The only thing missing is a hand cream because my current one has run out. I know I have another one somewhere in the flat but I've not been able to track it down! The cat probably stole it.
What are your bedside essentials?
