Beauty Favourites | March 2015

I am always open to trying new products, especially when I visit Boots and they are having a 3 for 2 event across my favourite brands. This month I rejoined the gym, so I am particularly conscious of any breakouts on my face and have switched up a couple of products in my regular skin care routine.

 

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for combination & sensitive skin.  

Micellar cleansing water for combination and sensitive skin
I have combination skin, and it drives me crazy. I can experience dry skin and oily breakouts at the same time so I was intrigued when one of my favourite products became available for combination and sensitive skin. I have been using Garnier’s Micellar cleansing water for about 8 months now and I have noticed a change in my skin. This product is so simple to use, has very few chemicals or irritants and leaves my skin completely cleansed, without a layer of film some products can leave behind.
I have been using the Micellar water for combination and sensitive skin for about a month now, and although I have not noticed much of a difference between this one and the original, it leaves my skin feeling great, and completely clean. As I mentioned, I am back at the gym, which usually results in me experiencing break outs on a small-scale, but I think this product has been helping to keep them at bay.

The best thing I can say about this product is the value for money. You can get up to 400 uses out of just one bottle (2ml per use). For me it will last about 3 to 4 months at a time. Shop here.

 

Yes to Tomatoes clearing facial mask.

I love to treat my skin to a facial mask about once a week if possible, and I have been using one from Soap & Glory for so long now that I wanted something new. The Yes to Tomatoes mask seemed like a good fit as it is a clearing mask which help fights break outs. Again: combination skin and spending more time at the gym means I am very cautious of getting spots. I am the type of person who doesn’t totally understand exactly which chemicals we should be slathering over our skin, and which to run from so when I see products that are more natural I feel more comfortable. This mask is 95% natural and is a deep pore treatment which refines, purifies and moisturises the skin. It cleans and clears your complexion with anti-oxidants and sebum absorbers which prevent acne. This applies like a mud mask and tightens and hardens within moment. Keep the mask on for 5-10 minutes before washing off.

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer Pen: 

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer Pen

I am a huge fan of Maybelline products, particularly their concealers. I have been using their age rewind concealer for a couple of years now, and when Boots had a 3 for 2 event on, I decided to test out the Dream Lumi pen. I am delighted that I tested it out it has fast become one of my all time favourite products. The concealer is gel based, which means it is light on the skin but gives great coverage. It reminds me of Touch Eclat from YSL the way it luminates the skin. I am totally converted, and this is now one of my makeup essentials. Shop here.

 

I wanted to share a picture of me wearing the concealer which is pretty much everywhere my skin is glowing below. I applied it in a triangular shape under my eyes, a line on my nose and my cupids bow on my lips.

Thank you for reading,
