Light coverage

Personally i only ever wear medium - full coverage foundation when i go out for an occasion like a birthday or a get together or just a night out. So during the day i reach for light coverage foundations or a BB cream just so it allows my skin to breath slightly.


Below are the light coverage products i reach for and alternate between during the week. 







*The one i use the most is the Garnier Daily all-in-one BB cream in light*



I find it gives me the nicest finish on my skin, and helps it to look healthy and dewy. It has quite good coverage and on a good day i can go out the house just wearing this. It has a slight fragrance to it which is a nice smell but it could be a problem for sensitive skin.
I purchased it when it was on offer in Boots for £9.99 and has lasted me around 3 months so far, which isn't bad at all.
The consistency is quite thick. Thicker than what i thought it was going to be like. When you smooth it out over your face it thins out completely and seems to disappear into the skin very quickly. My personal rating of the Garnier BB cream is 9/10.








*The next product that i use quite a lot is the Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam*


At first i was a bit skeptical about the whole foam thing and still I'm not 100% sure about it. I find that when you press down to allow to foam to come out, even the slightest touch makes it spit out then runs out smooth and always far to much ends up on my hand.


However saying this i do like the finish it gives my skin. It is advertised as a light coverage foundation but i find it has quite a flawless finish and quite matte too which i prefer some days to dewy. I do find it hard to blend over my face and especially down my neck. 
Overall my personal rating of this product is 6.5/10.



*The last product i use is the Natural Collection tinted moisturiser* 


At first i thought hell yeah! £1.99... I'm trying that. I used it for around 3 weeks and realised that whenever i used this i put on a lot of powder to set it as it is literally just a moisturiser with a hint of tint that isn't really there. I wasn't bothered as it was a small £1.99. I do still use this when I'm dancing or when i go to the gym just so i feel a little bit nicer to look at in the mirror.



As you can see from the picture above, the consistency of this is very runny and thin. This does make it quite easy to apply and can be blended into the skin and down the neck. As i said above i do still use this but rarely. I would personally rate this 4/10.


Sorry this was quite a long post, feel free to comment below and let me know what you use.

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
