A blemish stage and stubborn eye make up



The summer has certainly been a turn around for my skin. Looking back to the end of July my skin started to become quite spotty and prone to breakouts and needed some help in the make up removal step. 

Taking off stubborn eye make up was a step that I am not fond of. I am inpatient and can't stand sitting at my desk holding cotton pads on my eyes for ages. Then I found this beautiful product from Nivea that is just a powerful as my old Clarins make up remover but cheaper! I just soak a cotton pad in the remover and hold for about ten seconds and give them a slight and light rub and move around and the majority comes off and the bottle lasts ages. 

I started by kicking the processed sugar (well as much as possible) as I found myself eating and drinking a fair amount which certainly wasn't helping matters. I also dug out my Clarisonic Mia having not used it for a little while I thought my skin would love a good scrub and re-fresh. I don't use it every day, more like twice a week to really work my cleanser into my skin and leaves my skin so super soft. 

My spots and the size of my pores were getting my down and went straight to the La Roche-Posay stand in my local Boots as they have always been great with my skin problems. I first picked up the Serozinc toner which I've really been enjoying using. It's quick and since I started to use it my skin has certainly cleared up a lot and finding my skin is less oily. I couldn't walk away from the stand just with one product so also grabbed the Anti-imperfections Effaclar Duo which was clinically proven to help correct the appearance of blemishes and I have seen a great change in my blemishes and skin in general. It feels lovely on the skin, very smooth and seems to disappear in the skin very quickly.

Now being mid August my skin has gone back to normal and my oil control is much better. I'm really happy with all of these products being in my skincare routine and am quite happy for the time being. If you have any suggestions for oily blemish prone skin holla!

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
