Hello everyonee! Soo October is here, actually we're almost half way through. Woweee! Which means it's only 10 weeks til Christmas, which is slightly craaazy, cannot wait though. Basically, I change what I use on a daily basis so I wanted to talk to you about what i've been using the most recently. I have been to lots of events in London so most of these are products that i've picked up along the way and i've started to adore the ones in the photo above. I am going to talk you through my new favourite products. Woohooo. Enjoy, Happy October!
Here are a few more primers that I've been switching between this month. I've been wanting to use something from 'ThisWorks' for a while now, but this 'perfect look skin miracle' actually works as a primer and a tinted moisturiser but the colour is just perfect. I will definitely be wearing this by itself on good skin days or on holiday, it makes your skin look radiant and smooth but also just gives you that much needed colour. The only reason I wear foundation is to give me some colour so this is perfect for me on good skin days. I love the packaging and the pumpy action too. The Wild About Beauty primer really reminds me of my fave Mac Primer. It just smoothes the skin perfectly and preps it for make up application. It's silicone-free so that it rejuvenates the skin, They say it 'keeps it
nourished and conditioned whilst simultaneously priming skin to ensure make-up goes on
smoothly and really lasts.' It's even 'enhanced with anti-ageing ingredients'. I advise you all to use this and you really will see a difference. It's £21 which is slightly more expensive than Mac but it uses natural ingredients so it actually treats your skin as well as prepping it for make up application which makes the price better than Macs.
Here are three random products that have been in my skin care routine for a few weeks now and I really am impressed by them. Firstly, Murad's pore refining gel for the T-zone, this is similar to Dermalogica's over night clearing gel. However, it really does sting and itch my face. I have seen a noticeable change with my skin but it does really sting which I suppose means it's working but it's not a nice sensation. It's £27.00 for 50ml which is actually quite expensive, I'm sure there's a cheaper alternative but it is working I think. Elemis is a brand that i've never used before but I was given this at the Cosmo awards and it's actually perfect for me, the softlysoftly moisturiser is just a basic moisturiser which is what I need just to calm my skin. It's around £16.00 which isn't that much but you can get a good mattifying one from Boots for around £5.00. I've never really been a fan of expensive moisturisers but I do love mattifying moisturisers as they break up blemishes. I have been using Lush's Tea Tree toner water and would recommend this to anyone. I only put it on my blemished areas though because I was advised that it will dry out my skin if I put it all over my face. I use my Dermalogica hydrating toner everywhere else.
These are just my random faves which i've always used on my face and continue to use. You can find full reviews of all of these products on my blogs older posts. I use Mac's bronzing powder in matte bronze, Mac's mineralize powder in medium to dark and Loreal's Lumi Magique. As you know, Loreal's lumi magique highlighting stick is my favourite product ever, I wish it didn't run out so quickly as whilst £10.00 is cheap in comparison to YSL's touch éclat it isn't worth it when it runs out so quickly. It's just great for circles underneath the eyes. I wonder if touch éclat runs out so quickly. I have also been using Murad's concealer stick which is good but it snapped straight away which is a bit annoying and it does dry out spots which isn't always a good thing as then they seem to take longer to go. It's £14.00 which is quite expensive but then again I pay the same for Mac concealers which don't even have blemish control in them, I need to persevere with the concealer to see if it's worth it.
