In 2015 I became truly obsessed with skincare and with cleansers in particular! I’ve now about 10 regularly on the go so I thought I’d share these with you and some speedy reviews. I have three main types of cleanser on the go, balms, creams and gels. I did have one pure oil cleanser in the mix but sadly that is all gone and I’m on the hunt for a new one – am eyeing up the new Elemis one. I’ve divided the speed reviews by the type of cleanser below. Where I’ve done a full review of the cleanser the link is in the name.
There has been a plethora (big word for a Friday) of gel type nail polishes launched over the last year or so. I picked up one of the No7 ones recently with one of my many many Boots vouchers. This shade is called Fuchsia, it photographs more red for some reason but it’s pinker than the photos show. I really love the colour of this but I’m not convinced of the gel look of it. If anything I found the polish to go a little dull after a day or so. It goes on really easy in one coat and is a pretty colour but if you’re looking for thick looking gel shine, there are polishes that do this better, like the most brilliant gel topcoat in the world that I spoke about on Monday here. Also at €9.99 they are not the cheapest but if you have a money off voucher they’re definitely worth it.
Well the temperature has gone over fifteen degrees in Ireland so summer has officially arrived! People go from complaining about the rain to complaining about the heat. I have skin with a touch of rosacea and a fair bit of redness so my skin doesn’t react too well to the heat. When I go on holidays I often get a rash from the sun on my face. So when the heat hits I am on mission to cool down my skin. Here is my current skin cooling routine.
I’m having a serious blusher crush at the moment, I’ve been digging into my stash and trying out everything I own as well as buying new ones of course – although no more as I’m on my spending ban till June now! As part of my blusher addiction I recently bought the No7 Pop and Glow Cream Blush Stick as part of my latest Boots haul here.
Boots has been calling me for a while! I haven’t had a proper splurge in a while and I’ve run out of a lot of my day to day products. Payday landed on Friday so of course I had to pay a visit and here’s what I picked up.
