Springing into new skincare

Mixing up skincare is something I really enjoy and am always on the hunt for new products to try out, and lately I've found some right finds. I've been trialing these products for a while and feel like every one of these needs to be spoken about to you all, you seriously need to try these.

I was kindly given the Super Facialist by Una Brennan and I'd heard so much about this oil, I was so happy to finally have it and see what the fuss was about. Now, this oil boasts anti-aging qualities with a high performance pro-collagen for a youthful and healthy glow to the face. It contains Rosemary oil, vitamin E and cucumber oil. I use this as a second cleanse mid week, and then again on a Sunday evening. Initially I started using it every other day which my skin wasn't actually a fan of, so started limiting myself to just two a week. It definitely gets my skin glowing and gives a plump feeling. Over using this product just isn't good for my skin, but when I do use it sparingly I really enjoy it and honestly smells amazing.

Whilst having a rummage in a little grocery shop in China Town London, I came across these sheet face masks by Etude House and that little voice inside instantly said "You have to buy these". So I did. I bought two of each type focusing on things like moisture, firming and Hyaluronic acid which I'm all for. I love a good sheet mask anyway but really liked using these a lot and even more than others I've tried before. With these you don't have a ridiculous amount of waste product (no dripping liquid from the sheets). I find it really hard to describe the difference in my skin from using a mask as it's something you use every now and again, but the ones I've used so far I've really enjoyed. 

I've used the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm before and loved it and seemed to continue with life without it fine. They do say absence makes the heart grow fonder, and with regards
to this particular product, its certainly true. I'd forgotten how great it makes me feel about my skin. Especially on those days when I've had a late night and don't just feel fatigued, I looked fatigued. This helps to give you that glow again (sense a glow addiction) and just spritely I guess. 

Lastly, this dinky miniature of Benefits Total Moisture is not only the cutest miniature ever, but the moisture punch of this little guy is phenomenal. I'd never thought about Benefits skincare, and in a way, I'd always judged it before ever trying it. This came in a big set full of miniatures and have used it for about a month now. I get extremely dry skin around my nose and also on my cheeks, and when I use this it seems to get a lot better. I prefer to use it over night more so than a morning cream, as I find it too rich to be a base for my face makeup. Has a lovely scent, consistency and does a great job. 

Got any new skincare products your raving about? I'd love for you to share them.

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
