Skincare Ingredients You Need in Your Life

Hello beauties,

As you all know I’m a self confessed skincare addict. I also think I’m a know it all, but by no means I do not know it all. However over the years while battling to obtain clear skin I’ve learnt a few things about skincare. Today I wanted to share my understanding of skincare ingredients so hopefully you can make a more informed decision when purchasing skincare.

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic Acid is targeted at acne/blemish prone skin as it penetrates deep into the skin. I’m not much of a fan of Salicylic Acid as I feel it just doesn’t work quick enough for my skin. The only product that I absolutely swear by that has Salicylic Acid is the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion which is a spot treatment.

Hello beauties,

I saw the lovely Rosa from Lipstick n Linguine do a post about all the beauty products she repurchases and well I just wanted to copy her. As a beauty blogger I get to try so many products, and I think everything is amazing. But lets be real. New products lose their shine and there’s always a handful of products you come back to. Well I’ve got a bit more than a handful…

Product Empties: April

Hello beauties,

Another month, another round of empties. This month’s a bit different as I started off by clearing out some old and unloved items from my beauty collection.

Wella SP Colour Save Conditioner

I’ve repurchased this conditioner multiple times, not because I think its amazing but because my hairdresser recommended it. Don’t think its anything special and will try something new.

Sephora Argan Hand Mask*

The packaging of the hand mask is amazing! No leakage and easy to use. I found that it did hydrate my hands but at the same time wasn’t anything special. Might try again before my wedding…

Estee Lauder DayWear BB Cream

One of the best BB Creams I’ve ever tried but its a tad light so its time to bin it. Really good coverage and lasts well on oily skin. I got my girlfriend hooked on it and she swears by it as her every day foundation.
