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.
Christmas is going to be here in just a few weeks, it’s hard to believe. I am drastically under prepared, I have not bought one single present yet, starting to panic! A week or so ago I brought you my gift guide for around the €50 mark here. Today I’ve had more fun with virtual window shopping and am bringing you my gift guide for under €30. Maybe this will actually inspire me to start shopping!
Agghhhhh it’s that time again! I’m so excited, I know loads of people aren’t big on Christmas but I just love it. It’s a real fun, cosy, warm the feet by the fire, family focussed time of year. One big part of course is the gifts! Every year I look forward to seeing everything that’s new in beauty land for Christmas and bringing you my pick of the Christmas beauty gifts. I’ll start at the higher end of the budgets this week and work towards the last minute stocking fillers. Below are my picks of the gifts for €50 or under…
I’m a bit obsessed with cleansers at the moment, I find I’m drawn to them when I’m out shopping lately but I definitely don’t need any more! It’s getting into colder weather and I’m really relying on cleansers to help keep my skin feeling moisturised and supple. My skin gets very dry and sensitive in the winter months so I need a good cleanser that won’t irritate my skin. Here are some of my top cleanser picks for winter.
I’ve always been a huge Soap & Glory fan. They’re one brand that has managed to produce equally great products across their bodycare, skincare and makeup ranges. Usually a brand can only do one category really well but Soap & Glory is a bit of an all rounder. Recently unkown to myself and my beauty shopaholic status I accumulated a good few new to me Soap & Glory products. So I thought I’d show you what I bought and take you through some speedy first impressions!
Thank god it’s my birthday soon as I’m running out of products at lightening speed at the moment! Only a few weeks since I wrote my last empties post and there are plenty more heading for the bin. Here’s my thoughts on the latest round…
Well the weather has been warm for at least a week in Ireland now so summer has officially been declared! This means it’s time to show a bit more skin than I normally prefer, I’m more of a winter fashion, cosy tights kind of girl! But I do have a few products I turn to to help me brave the summer months…
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 wasn’t going to write a post about these because I already included these in my 2013 makeup favourites here. I decided that they deserved a full post though because they are that good. My friend Debs got me this set for Christmas, she didn’t know I’d wanted it for ages, so it was a great present.
I was hoping to have this post written a few days ago but I have been recovering from all my traveling and also I couldn’t make my mind up about my favourite products in 2013! There were lots of things I liked but the post can’t go on forever, so I’ve tried to be a bit ruthless. Below are the bits that really impressed me:
