Exfoliating toners


Not long ago, I posted about toner and how it didn't really excite me nor did it interest me. But I can happily say that I have found a love for toner....exfoliating toners.

When do I use it?
I only use these at night and alternate between the Clearasil and the Pixi glow tonic. I find if I use these twice a day my skin doesn't feel as fresh and doesn't look as fresh looking. I guess it's just me.

What are the benefits?
Exfoliating toners contain acid which is actually a better exfoliator than using something with those horrible beads and that, that I've actually found to make my skin feel sore. Using an exfoliating toner also helps with dehydration of the skin. They help your skin lock in moisture which is amazing as our skin goes through so much that drys it out.....central heating, air conditioning, sunbathing, smoking (if you do) and the list goes on.

Do I feel a difference?
Yes yes yes! My skin has never felt and looked so good and fresh. I've even had people at work comment on how my skin looks glowing and radiant (no i'm not pregnant). I have noticed that my foundation/tinted moisturiser doesn't dry out and crust on my dry areas of my face which I used to get quite nervous and conscious about. Not sure if this next point is because of these products but, the balance in colour of my skin has also seen a change for the better. I used to have a lot of pigmentation patches. Now when I don't have any make up on and have just washed my face my skin looks a lot more even and just all over nice.

So will you or do you use exfoliating toners? How do you feel about using a product with acid in?


Thanks for reading
xoxo

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

*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
