To commemorate diving back into the world of blogging, I thought I’d write about the beauty products that I’m currently loving. There’s a mixture of both old and new products within the post, with some trustworthy staples and items I’ve just started testing out. Keep reading to find out what they are!
The first item, simple and easy is the Vitamin E SPF 15 Day Cream from Superdrug. I purposely have been using this because of the SPF it contains and how important it is for your skin, especially the face as it’s the most susceptible to the sun. It’s not heavy or greasy on the skin and it’ll be the cream I carry on using into the future so I would 10/10 recommend it.
The second product is the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe and Rosewater. I’ve wanted this product for so many years and my sister gifted it to me for my 21st birthday last November. This spray is so refreshing and soothing and I usually use it after I’ve washed my face in the evening pre-bedtime to soak into my skin overnight. If I’m applying this, I don’t use any other products such as cream and just apply some lipbalm to my lips. I’ve used nearly a third of it but that’s because I spray it about 5-8 times when I use it.
Next is the Matte Fase Base from Kiko. I only purchased this last week to replace my Barry M original primer and I love it. It’s a thicker consistency than the Barry M product and a little goes a long way! It’s a little bit more expensive than high street brands but I think you really get what you’re paying for with this product. I have a hunch that this will definitely become one of my staples within my make up bag.
I’ve had the L.A. Girl Pro Conceal Concealer for months without having opened it as I felt that I didn’t really need it. I bit the bullet and opened it about a week ago as I had quite a few sore red spots on my face that I wanted a little more coverage on. This works a dream at covering up the redness! I just lightly applying a few strokes onto the probelm areas, let it set a little and cover with foundation and voila, it’s not as noticeable. The only thing I recommend is that less it more as the product comes out very easily so do be careful!
Finally I have a perfume to share as a favourite – Mediterranean Fig by Pacifica. I don’t usually wear perfume anymore, I used to always when I was younger but I find the perfume doesn’t smell as good when the day wears on and opt only for deoderant on a daily basis. This changed as my sister passed on this product to me. The smell is slightly woody and musky as the perfume is a blend of fig, oak moss and sandalwood. When I was younger, I wouldn’t have opted for these scents, preferring vanilla and moringa which don’t get me wrong, I do still love but they are very sweet in comparison. What I love about this is that it smells great and lasts, it’s ideal for travelling and it completely vegan! What more could you ask for?
Plath by Kat Von D is a lippie I’ve been loving as a neutral colour to compliment minimal make up looks. Now that summer has arrived, I’ve felt like toning down my make up a little even though a bold red lip will forever be my signature look, it’s nice to have different options with lipstick. It lasts for hours and is the perfect nude for darker skin tones.
Let me know what you guys have been currently loving too!
