Face mask Friday - Bridesmaid prep



A wild Friday night in for me as per usual, however this Friday is a little special. I will be preparing for my cousins wedding which is on Saturday so my skin is having a good old pamper in preparation for a long day of a face of make up. I have a 'go to' group of masks that I go to when I know I need a good deep moisturising clean but something that doesn't have too much of an angry after effect on my skin.

I'll obviously start with a good cleanse to get my skin ready for a deep clean (Click HERE for evening skincare routine)

Starting with either the Aesop Parsley Seed masque , Una Brennan Super Facialist Anti Blemish Clay Mask the Liz Earl Intensive Nourishing Treatment mask which are very similar however tonight I will be going with the Aesop. This is purely because it does a great job with blemishes and has a very soothing and calming effect to my skin. Being a bridesmaid with a lovely shiny spot or super dry skin which will stand out in the family photos is not what I fancy having on Saturday. I know that using this helps to prevent these sorts of things from happening. After leaving the masque on for ten minutes and washing it off with a warm cloth makes my skin feel incredibly clean, tight and smooth.

I will follow this with the rest of my skincare routine, exfoliating toner, calming toner, serum, moisturiser and then go onto use my Origins overnight intensive mask. As this is made out of completely natural ingredients it's such a lovely hydrating product which allows your skin to get that hydration moisture which you leave on to soak overnight.

What sort of Friday night are you guys having? Will you be using any masks?

Love you guys!

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
