Daily Skincare Routine

Hey dolls!

I am back to share my quick morning skin care routine.

I am always in a rush to get ready and out the door in an hour so this routine has never failed me. I have been following this routine for about a year now and it has kept my skin fairly clear and reduced my oily-ness. If you have oily skin I would definitely recommend the La Roche-Posay range! Even though I love trying new skin care products some of these I will always go back to.

1. Face wash | La Roche-Posay

A little goes a long way with this and it lasts for AGES! I find that it combats my oily skin as well as keeping it hydrated and clear. This is one of my holy grail products!

2. Exfoliating cleanser | Lush 


I use this exfoliating cleanser just to give my skin that extra clean feeling in the week. I love the texture of this as it leaves your skin feeling extra fresh and glowy. Occasionally (mainly during winter) I suffer from sensitive dry patches around my nose and mouth. This gets rid of the dead skin as well as giving my skin that extra moisture.

3. Toner | La Roche-Posay


It is important to use a toner after cleansing as it helps close the pores and brings your skin back to its normal pH balance. I love the cooling feeling this gives off on my skin. Although the La Roche Posay products are my fave I probably wouldn’t re-purchase this toner unless it is on offer again. I think any toner would do the same thing.

4. Eye cream | Nip and fab 


In a bid to get rid of my dark circles I purchased this to see if it really worked. I have used it for a good few months now and haven’t noticed a dramatic difference to be honest. But I love how hydrated my under eyes feel while using this. My concealer sits so much better when I use this eye cream so I never skip this step.

5. Serum | Nip and fab


If its good enough for Kylie (Jenner) its good enough for me! I use this serum underneath my moisturizer and I absolutely love it. It helps keep my skin hydrated and supple. It is also a good base before applying your make up. A little tip, if you do suffer from oily skin try treating yourself to some extra hydrating products as this could be the reason your skin produces excess oil.

6. Moisturiser | La Roche-Posay


My favourite MUST HAVE moisturiser of all time! It really does help with my oily t-zone and keep my skin clear of blemishes. A little goes a long way so the tube does last a few months. I love how light but hydrating it is on the skin. Definitely a cream I’ll be re-purchasing over and over again.

What are your favourite skin care products to use everyday?

Let me know in the comments below, I love trying new products!

Review | Bourjois Velvet Lipstick

IMG_6436Hey girls,

So I have been dying to tell you all about my new fave matte lipsticks by Bourgois! They have been out for a little while now and have only just launched another three shades which I have yet to get my hands on.

You are probably all familiar with the liquid lipsticks that dry matte, there are so many on the market right now but I assure you, nothing compares to this little gem! I am a huge fan of matte lipsticks and  have tried a whole bunch. I always find that liquid to matte lipsticks dries out my lips a bit too much. Then when I reapply it just gets all flaky and doesn’t look nice at all. Another problem I’ve had with other brands is that once you swipe on the lipstick and go over it, it takes off the colour again. Not very pratical when your in a rush.

Back to this ah-mazing new lipstick.. Bourjois velvet matte. *angels sing* This is my dream matte lipstick in a little cute tube. I always liked the look of bourjour products but I’ve only ever tried their chocolate bronzer which was in every girls make up bag back in school! Well these matte lipsticks now come in a range of 8 beautiful shades. Theres the red shades, pinky shades and nude shades. I have yet to try the new nude shade but I will get my hands on it soon.

I picked up two shades red and bright pink.

Right | Red, Personne ne Rouge. Left | Pink, Pink Pong. 

I chose this red shade as it was the closest to a ruby woo blue tone shade. The best kind of true red every girls NEEDS in their make up bag. These are soo pigmented and really do show up on the lips as they are in the tube. I was so impressed with how hydrated my lips felt even after a long day. The longevity of these is also a plus, I can go a whole day without the need to reapply. Even after taking the lipstick off you are left with a stain. The only bummer about these lipsticks is the colour range! I hope in time they do bring out more shades.

I give the Bourjois Velvet Lipsticks an 8/10 for their amazing colour pay off, long staying power and a matte formula that doesn’t dry out your lips at all (brownie points). I just hope they bring out more colours soon! 

 

You can purchase them at most boots and super drug stores and other on lie retailers. Here is a link to purchase them online. 

 

Until next time ladies, I hope you have a lovely week 🙂

Lip Product Addicts Tag

Hey lovelies,

I am back with another lip product post with a little twist. This is the “lip product addict” tag (that was a mouthful lol). I hope you enjoy this post. My next post will not be lip product related I promise! I am open to any post suggestions too 🙂

 Here goes..

IMG_3611

1. Favourite balm/treatment?

My favourite lip balm at the moment is by Nivea the vanilla scent, purely for the smell * heart eyes * .. oh, and its moisturizing on the lips!

 2. Best eye-catching red?

 The BEST red has to be Ruby Woo! It looks amazing on anyone and everyone. The perfect red shade for day and night in my opinion.

3. Best luxury and best drug store?

 I don’t even have any “luxury” lip products. A non drugstore lipstick I do have (apart from mac) is a Nars lipstick in the shade Valparaiso, a dark red/berry. This was my go-to berry shade in the winter. It stayed matte and non drying all day too!

Now for drugstore lipsticks I cant decide between the Revlon Matte Colourburst *heart eyes* and the Bourjois Rouge edition velvet lipstick *heart eyes x 2*. They are both amazing in there own ways! You must try them out for yourself girls! The only downfall I would say is the small colour range..hurry up and make more!!

4. Best MAC lipstick?

 Apart from Ruby Woo, my other FAVE is Up the Amp! I just love the purple shade as it goes well with my complexion and looks amazing with a tan. It isn’t your everyday pink or nude but I like to wear it when my outfit is plane and simple. Having a bold lip makes the outfit that much better!

 5. The most disappointing?

 The most disappointing lipstick I have is the Sleek Matte me. I purchased this out of curiosity. I hadn’t heard or seen any reviews so I thought I would give it a go. I picked up a summery coral colour ‘party pink’. I love the packaging though. When I applied this onto the lips it was hard to get a nice solid colour. Every time I swiped the brush over my lips it would take off the previous coat. I didn’t bother with it again after that.

 6. Liner, yes or no?

 I used to wear eyeliner every single day. But now I only use liner on a night out if I can be bothered to perfect the winged look. I’m usually running late on a night out so I give liner a miss.

 7. Best gloss?

I don’t really wear glosses although I am trying to get into them. I love the nude/pastel pink look at the moment. The best gloss I do have is the Clarins instant light natural lip perfecter (another mouthful). Its lovely alone and on top of lipstick.

 8. Something extra?

I think I am starting to get a little obsessed with lip liners. I have one too many nude liners and a few other staple shades. I tend to use the nude/pink colour all over my lips. I love the matte finish it gives and it lasts for hours without drying my lips!

I could talk about lip products for hours! Let me know if you have tried any of these or anything you would recommend 🙂
