Are #bbloggers too fickle?

I read a lot of beauty blogs and always see new posts popping up on my twitter feed about the latest must have product. Which brings me to my point, are beauty bloggers too fickle when it comes to products? Do the majority of us keep changing up the things we use constantly in search of something better, or do bloggers feel they have to keep trying new things in order for them to have new content for their blog?

I tend to stick to the things I like, I always use peaches and clean to cleanse, oil of olay to moisturise, and St Ives to scrub. I am a creature of habit, and quite loyal to a brand when I find something I like and that works well with my fussy skin. Does that make me a bad beauty blogger? Should I always be changing everything up all the time and slapping on the next miracle product in order to have something new to review to keep the readers coming back? I have to keep wondering is this actually good for your skin to use so many different types of products?

Oil of olay, peaches and clean

Although I stay loyal to my basic skin care routine and have my favourite make-up products I do like to try out lots of new colours from the brands I love, but I tend to go with the mantra "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

I am the third generation of female in my family to be using oil of olay, (or ulay as it was when I was a child) I remember watching my nan applying the cream to her face whilst sitting in her armchair sipping on a cup of coffee, and then it started popping up in my mum's bathroom cabinet, so it was no wonder that it was my first choice when I got to the point where I knew I needed to be sensible and start using a moisturiser on a daily basis. I have used another couple of brands but I am very happy with my olay, its light enough that it doesn't leave me feeling greasy, but nourishing enough that my skin isn't too dry, it sinks in well and doesn't leave my skin red and irritated. I think I am on this bandwagon for some time and feel no real need to try something new. For this product I am not fickle!

Do you change up your products all the time? Or have you found your holy grail product that you are loyal to?
