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

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

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
