I’d like to start by apologising for my lack of posts over the last few weeks. I had to move out of my lovely apartment and things have been a bit all over the place. Moving is definitely not a fun experience! I find it very hard to blog when I’m stressed but fortunately things have calmed down a bit and my blogging mojo is slowly arriving back. So I thought I’d start back by giving you a review of the famous Alpha H Liquid Gold…
Well colour me Kiko at the moment. I am all over the Kiko products since my little France haul. I couldn’t get over how cheap some of the Kiko goodies are, the skincare in particular is great value with most items hovering around the €10 mark. I love anything with peel in the name as it usually means it’s a safe way for me to exfoliate my skin without scrubbing it. So when I spied the Kiko Anti-Age Peeling Gel for just under €7 I knew it had my name written all over it.
Did you ever own something for ages and not fully appreciate what it does? This product falls into that category for me. I think I have this for a few months now but maybe only used it a handful of times. But then my skin started having a mini meltdown and this product really came to the rescue.
This post is my first in the Best of Beauty Blog Challenge! The lovely Samantha over at All The Buzz came up with the challenge as a way to keep the blogging mojo going and also as a chance for us beauty bloggers to discover new blogs. I have been a bit slow with my posts of late so this challenge is really helping me to focus. Thanks Sam!
I am a bit of an Elemis fan I have to admit, I have yet to find an Elemis product that I do not love. I own a variety of scrubs, creams and cleansers and I love them all. I was kind of scared to try the Pro Collagen Marine Cream as for some reason I had a fear that it would be the one product I didn’t love but luckily that is not the case.
There was a bit of hoo-ha over toner a few months ago. The Daily Mail wrote an article here, discussing the pros and cons, but mainly some of the cons of toner. It was interesting because they rightly claim that some toners can be harsh on skin when they are heavy on the alcohol. I can’t use the Clinique Clarifying Lotion because it actually stings the face off me but my sister has no problems with it.
So I suppose toner is like most beauty products, it all depends on finding the right product for your skin concerns. I’m not an expert but I do believe that toner has a benefit in any beauty routine for A. removing any last traces of cleanser or eye make up remover (the oiliness of this won’t help your eye cream) before moisturiser and B either claryifying oily skin or soothing sensitive skin after cleansing.
