The 3 products the hosts of You Beauty couldn’t live without.

Leigh Campbell and Kelly McCarren try a lot of beauty products.

As the hosts of Mamamia's daily beauty podcast, You Beauty, their job involves trialling the latest beauty launches and sharing their honest recommendations with us each and every week.

During last week's episode, Kelly and Leigh were asked to answer a near-impossible question: "If you could only use three products for the rest of your lives, what would they be?"

Watch: Here's how you self care, according to your horoscope. Post continues after video.

Excluding sunscreen (because that's a given) and hair (because in this desert island scenario their hair would look flawless, obviously), the hosts shared their three ride-or-die products and we took notes, adding some of our favourite recommendations you can shop.

2. Brow pencil.

Leigh explained that because of lockdown she's been wearing nothing but sunscreen on her face. So to make herself look a little more put together, she'll fill in her brows too.

"It's a bit more uniform," she said.

L'Oreal Brow Artist Xpert, $19.95.

3. Powdered bronzer.

"It wakes up my complexion," Leigh said. "Even if I put bronzer on top of my skincare and sunscreen, it just makes me look a little more alive."

Kelly McCarren's desert island products.

1. Multipurpose oil.

"Mine was also oil," Kelly said of her top must-have, before sharing her other go-to products.

2. A thick balm.

"Because of all this oil, I'm going to need a thick balm - pawpaw or Lanolips - because it's so multipurpose," she said.

"I can use it through my brows, to highlight my cheekbones, on my elbows and on my lips."
