Primers for the party season


Are you getting in at the end of the day/night and looking in the mirror at your skin which looks like you haven't put anything on it? In that case you are in need of a primer and boy do I have a couple of corkers for you to choose from.

Benefit The POREfessional - £24.50- 
Having used this for ages now I feel slightly biased towards this as my favourite of the two. The first couple of weeks of using it I actually didn't even like it. It felt too oily and really didn't think it worked. However after persisting with it I haven't put it down since and have two other bottle waiting upstairs in my back up stash. It has proved to be a lovely base for make up to go on top of but also something that allows the foundation to remain with the same finish as it did when you first applied it. The round up....a great product!

Laura Mercier Foundation primer- £29.00- 
I've only had this since receiving my Harvey Nichols Glossybox but have been really enjoying this for my day time wear. For some reason I actually prefer the feel and consistency of the Benefit product. This is more gel like and feel wet and thin on my skin, where as the Benefit feels thicker. I prefer this for the day as the thinner consistency and coverage feels nicer to wear during the day and teams perfectly with my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser. 

To sum: Over the holiday season I will be sticking with the POREfessional for those evening occasions where I want to look flawless and the Laura Mercier will be used for those days where you visit family, trips out to do last minute shopping.

Do you already use a face primer? I would love to try a few more.

Happy Monday everyone!

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

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
