It’s time to update your beauty bag ladies! Beauty products do expire, so take some time to check your beauty basics and throw out the old ones, and replace them with new ones. (For a basic guideline, read Real Simple: Beauty Products and Expiration Dates.) I’ve selected some new beauty picks such as BB cream, a blusher trio, and make-up tools. But my personal fave, is Yves Rocher‘s Strawberry scented body exfoliator! (It comes in a reusable glass packaging, and smells ever-so-delicious!) AND, don’t forget to keep your beauty stash in a cute little toiletry bag. LULU Australia offers a trendy, colourful option in a tribal print. Checkout more beauty picks here.
