Beauty Products I’m Loving Right Now

Beauty Products i’m loving right now…

Where do you start in a world full of so many beauty companies? I for one don’t have the answer but i’ve been through my fair share, money i’d like to say well spent but in reality not. I’m 31 years old and I’ve finally found the products i love and i won’t change ( until the next amazing product comes along hey ! )

But as it stands i’m going to let you know my favourite products so far out there, hopefully give you some inspirations and maybe save you a few pounds.

  • So foundation , i use the body shops Fresh Nude Foundation , it’s the best yet without a doubt . It smells great and all you need is a small amount for coverage meaning it will last so its great value for money i’d say.
  • I use for my eyes Tanya burrs mascara Selfie Lash which leaves your eyelashes clump free , i love that ! there’s not many that do leave them clump free ! i do also use Clinique’s High Impact Mascara just to add more colour if i want the eyelashes to be a bit darker.

  • I use Clinique’s highlighter sometimes and i definitely love this one , it’s a stick version and it really doesn’t leave to much shine which i really don’t like.

  • i use a blusher from LAQA & Co  and it’s a beautiful colour giving that English rose type look , it’s very subtle and elegant.

  • Eyebrow pencil is a must for me as eyebrows are minimal to not existing for me so i use W7 Super Brows eyebrow pencil and I’ve used this for quite some time now and it’s never failed me!

  • Sometimes i contour when i can be bothered (rarely) but when i do i use W7 contour stick and it’s actually really good the colours are perfect.

  • To remove it all i use Clinique’s Take The Day Off make up remover ! i adore this stuff its perfect , works wonders and leaves the skin feeling super soft .

There we have it some beauty products i actually love and wouldn’t be without !! what are yours?

Kiehl’s

Kiehl’s

For those of you who don’t know kiehl’s or have herd a little but still aren’t sure here’s some info ….

Kiehl’s started as a single pharmacy in Manhattan 1851 ! yes that’s 1851 i think that’s testimony to how amazing they really are. Dermatologist recommended skin care , hair care , body care , beauty & cosmetic, their products actually do as they say and have impressive results.

Kiehl’s On Wheels…

I was lucky enough to attend a Master class in GlOW for influencers recently held in Exeter at the Debenhams store, run by the kiehl’s on wheels manager Hannah Kiehl’s has a new counter recently opened up there definitely pop along and see them. I met some wonderful people and got to try out so many gorgeous products and i can say they all do what they are meant to do ! The moisturisers are INCREDIBLE ! the serums are fab , the cleansers and toners really leave your skin feeling super clean and ready for the day. They have this amazing product called Powerful-Strength Line Reducing Concentrate with 12.5% Vitamin C in, also if you don’t wear make up or many products please wear one and this one is important it’s the Ultra Light Daily UV Defense , it’s super important to protect your skin from harmful UV rays that cause sun damage and premature ageing. They have so many products there is nothing you won’t find .

The brand new product !! The GLOW…

Kiehl’s Glow Formula Skin Hydrator is wonderous!! i think, actually scrap that i know it’s one of my favourite products of theirs well of any beauty products!

A facial moisturiser infused with Pomegranate Extract and Illuminating Minerals for instantly glowing skin.

It instantly illuminates skin and improves glow over time, their ‘GLOW  ELIXIR’ provides instant radiance and fresh lightweight moisture. I can actually vote for that it really does !! It visibly diminishes dullness and boosts luminosity for a energized , healthy-looking glow. i cant praise this product enough. It can be worn under make up , as a highlighter or just on it’s own.

Below are some photos i took at the influencer launch i attended with great products and of course great people !!!

Look after your skin and only put on the best !!

Thank you for your support and continued likes , shares and comments , feel free to drop me an email or comment if you’d like to ask me anything? and i’ll get back you.

Are Your Feet Summer Ready?

Ok let’s be honest i think we tend to forget our feet in the whole skin care routine , it’s easily done but what if you wear sandals? , open toe heels? slidders? or want to go bare foot ? There’s nothing worse then dry skin or hard skin on your feet/heels right? It’s unsightly.

The Product …

So when Superdrug sent me some Foot Peeling Socks i was as happy as kid in a sweet shop !!  As i do tend to get quite hard skin on the back of my heels these are just what i needed,  i always seem to forget my feet and the care of them so these were a pleasant surprise.

I’ve never tried these before, I’ve tried the Nourishing socks, foot scrub and lotion which are fab can i say the smells are divine too! . But the Foot Peeling Socks? They are new thing to me ,i didn’t even know you could get these , i know the shame i’m so out of touch ! Specially formulated with a blend of AHA’s these socks , removes dead skin and leaves skin feeling soft and healthy looking.

 

The Results…

These little beauties are incredible !! I must admit the aroma is a little potent but it’s bloody effective. Not so nice my skin was peeling off a few days after use but hey that’s what it says on the tin !! SO TO SPEAK.

Gross i know ( pics below ! I’m sorry🙈 ) , but my skin underneath it all is ridiculously smooth and soft like the softness of a baby’s bum ! sorry only reference i could think of ( mum brain) . It states the skin will feel softer and look visibly healthier after just 2 weeks, WELL i can say after 5 days now it’s already doing so. Superdrug you win! i can’t fault this product THANK YOU !! .

 

Most definitely going to be using these from now on , my feet will look amazing for summer !!
