Beauty/Skincare Favourites

I’ve never done one of these before, but I thought I’d share what beauty and skincare products I’ve been enjoying lately.

i Divine in Ultra Matte V1
I’ve been really enjoying this pallete over the summer, the bright colours are perfect for adding a touch of colour to the face. However, I think it’ll be fun choosing ways to use these colours in autumn and winter. I initially wanted the Urban Decay Electric pallete but bought this as a dupe to see how much use I would get out of it.

EcoTools Eye Enhancing Duo Set
These brushes are so useful! I love having the double ended brushes since it takes up less space than four brushes, and when I’m doing my eye makeup I don’t have to reach for any other brushes. I especially like the eyeliner brush which is perfect for gel eyeliner and makes a really sharp line when doing cat-eyes.

Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream
I’m so late to the BB cream party, but I haven’t had clear enough skin to want to wear BB cream. Now my skin is looking a bit better, I really like the idea of a lightweight cream with coverage, SPF and salicylic acid in to help clear skin up. I haven’t tried any other BB creams but I’m pretty happy with this one.

L’Oréal Paris Skin Perfection Miracle Cleansing Oil
I’ve heard a lot about cleansing oils and so wanted to try it out for myself. I’ve got on really well with this one, I thought it would be weird to put oil on my face but it has actually made my skin less oily.

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo [+]
This cream is what has cleared up my skin, it’s managed to reduce the number of spots on my face or where there are stubborn spots it reduces the their redness. I’ve been using this in the morning and evening instead of moisturizer, and while my skin felt a bit oily to start with, it has evened it out now.

Easypiercing® Physiological Salt Solution
Not necessarily a skin care product, but this has really helped my nose piercing to heal. It is a lot less effort than a salt water solution, as you can just spray it on and go, plus the saline solution is always the right concentration compared to when you mix it yourself.

What I’ve Been Up To

I thought I would share a snippet of what I’ve been up to from my instagram, besides spending a lot of time training for my first roller derby bout, dying my hair blonde and moving house yet again, of course!
