I don’t typically do product empties post on my blog, but because I have so many at the moment I thought it would be easier to share as a blog post. Let me know if you want a more in depth review of any of the products mentioned.
Go To Properly Clean
This is a beautiful, simple, no fuss foaming cleanser. I prefer to use it as a morning cleanser. Click here for a full review of the Go To Skincare range.
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
This was so old and well overdue to be thrown out. I really like this beauty sponge and think its a great dupe for the original Beauty Blender. Click here for a comparison of the two.
I switch up between the Beauty Blender and the Real Techniques sponge to apply my foundation. I love applying my base with a sponge!
DUO Eyelash Adhesive
I think I got a dud glue. It smelt funny and I found it difficult to use.
Sunsense Lip Balm*
Not my favourite lip balm. But I did like using it when I went to the beach as it had SPF.

If you have oily skin like me, you know the importance of a weekly face mask. Here are some of my favourite face masks that are most suitable for oily skin types to keep the oils at bay and prevent breakouts.
Queen Helene- Mint Julep Masque
This is a great drugstore face mask, that absorbs excess oil without completely stripping the skin. This retails for approximately $6 and is available from iHerb. It can be a little drying so I recommend applying before you head into the shower and once in the shower wash off with hands and a damp muslin cloth.
Swisse Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask
This is quite a unique mud mask, its actually quite thin in texture and not as drying as other mud masks. To wash off its best to start off by adding a bit of water and massaging the mask in, then to finish off use a warm muslin cloth. Afterwards my skin felt really clean, a little red and when I apply my remaining skincare products my face drinks it up. I’ve also applied Alpha H Liquid Gold after using this mask and my skin had a bit of a tingle, so I could tell this mask really cleared out the skin.

Disclaimer alert!!! I do not have perfect skin, I am not a skin specialist and I am by no means a “know it all”…
Since starting my blog, my skin was playing up a bit. In recent months it’s finally calmed down and I wanted so share with you some of my learnings.
My skin is combination- oily, but slightly dehydrated. In the past couple of months I haven’t had any blemishes (I’m so surprised) but if I do, it’s around my nose or chin (hormonal zones..)
- This was my skin a couple of months ago, a bit problematic…
Here’s a quick update of my skin now that I’ve been using Ultraceuticals products. Below is January 2017.
Here are a few things that helped clear up my skin:
Back to Basics
I stopped trying new products, and stuck to a basic skincare routine. Here’s my morning and evening skincare routine.
