17 Most-Used Beauty Products of 2017

best beauty products 2017

I only managed to go and film a new video, didn’t I? After two false starts (one of them was realising I’d done the whole thing without actually pressing the record button) I managed to create a short(ish)list of my seventeen most-used beauty products from last year.

As I say in the video, there’s an important distinction between “most-used” products and “favourite” products. These aren’t necessarily my absolute favourites, because favourites could include – say – an incredible, luxurious red lipstick, or a blusher with an amazing compact. Things that might not be used daily, but would certainly press all of the right beauty buttons.

I spent quite a while looking through my notes and working out which things I’d used the most – there were dozens of face creams, loads of bath oils and shower gels and washes and no less than six different foundations that I’d used on rotation, but I eventually managed to get my list down to seventeen items. (It was originally going to be ten, but then I kept seeing 17 Favourites of 2017 videos and I thought that it would be nice to be matchy-matchy with my numbers. It also gave me an extra seven products for my list, which was a welcome addition as I was struggling to narrow it down!)

Anyway, let’s get on, shall we? If you’re in the office, skiving, and can’t watch a video because the sound will come on and give you away then there’s a list of products with links (the spoilers section) further on down the page.
