Winter is officially here, and it’s about this time every year I do the change over, mainly clothes but this year I’ve added in some skincare bits too.
Today its all about the Una Brennan facial oil. There is a myth that people with oily skin shouldn’t use oils but thats a lie. My advice is to use them sparingly.
I have no idea why but I love the Super Facialist packaging, they make my (horrible) bathroom cabinet look so pretty and like a spa. I’m addicted and always want to try something new. This product is a 30ml bottle and has a very convenient pump, you can clearly see the golden colour in the bottle which I find quite pleasing to the eye.
I tend to use this product once a week after a long relaxing shower. I have a whole pamper routine organised and it features this delightful oil.
I follow the instructions (kind of) and pump out a generous amount (about 2 pumps) and worm it through my hands. Then when I feel the temperature is right I gently apply to my face and neck. The feeling of this is just divine, and instantly puts me in a better mood. It feels so lux and nourishing.
Simple is a brand I go back to time and time again. Its odd because it’s not my favourite skincare, but if I’m in a pinch it’s the one I always go back to as it never fails me.
I’ve been using their micellar water on and off for a while now, so I thought it was about time I told you guys what I think of it! As we all know I love me a good micellar water, and as I’m keen on simple, I was keen to try this one.
Simple are known for being “sensitive skin experts”, it states it on their packaging, which is great for me and my skin can be very temperamental.
The packaging stays true to the Simple look, I like that is has this kind of sand blasted look. It makes it stand out from the crowd a bit.
The bottle is a good size(200ml) and the price isn’t too bad either, coming it at £4.94. Boots often do deals on it too, so I always try to keep an eye out!
Like with all Simple products, there is not much of a smell. It has a hint of something, but not that artificial smell you can get with some skincare. I know strange because there are so many things that make me want to love this product, but I can’t say it’s going to be one for the Ride Or Die pile.
As my acne has come back with a vengeance I need some products that can combat the redness. I have always shied away from these kind of products, but years ago I went on a beauty course and the teacher suggested colour correcting products, the rest is history.
I’m finally getting around to doing a review on my favourite concealer, Catrice Camouflage Cream. If you follow me on any social media, you will know I suffer from acne. Concealer is something I feel I can’t live without. I’ve been LOVING this concealer for the past 6 months. I literally can’t get over how good it is. It’s cheap as chips, give amazing coverage and comes in a good few shades which is great. This concealer, in my opinion, is exclusively for acne / blemishes. It’s much too heavy for under the eyes, covering those dark circles.
Concealer, colour corrector and highlight all in one??? Yes please!!
It comes with a light coloured concealer, a green colour corrector which is for redness, a yellow/orange colour corrector for dark circles and a light shimmery highlighter. The packaging is really nice to look at, it’s compact, clean. The product is visible and clearly marked. At the back there is a diagram on how to use the product. The product is a cream, I’m used to a heavy cream but this one is a bit watery. I’ve used green creams before, I like them! Although they can be difficult to find at the chemist / drugstore, so it’s great that Isadora brought out this and I got it in my ITWBN goodie bag so I was happy out!
If you have read my other posts on Powder you know how much of a fan I am of them. For me they are necessity, I have such oily skin that I need it to set my make-up and control shine. The last few months I’ve been using the Catrice Colour Correct Mattifying Compact Powder. I went in to Penny to get a few things and I was running out of powder so I said I’d have a look to see what they had, I’d heard good things about Catrice, months ago So Sue Me had said she used their Nude Illusion Loose Powder.
