Mini Priceline Haul

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Firstly I would like to apologise for not putting up a post yesterday as I would normally do.  Uni is back into full swing now and things got a little on top of me.

On Sunday I had a little bit of free time (which I should have been studying) and decided to pop into Priceline to pick up a few things.  A hundred dollars later I walked out a happy woman!  I thought I might start from the base and move to the nails, first off is the Bioderma Sebium Mat Moisturing Mattifying Fliud.  I thought this moisturiser would come in very handy during summer time, it aims to keep your base matte whilst hydrating your skin at the same time so I am very excited to try this when it starts to get hot and sweaty!  Next up is the Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Foundation in 010 Ivory.  Who can walk past a foundation that offers to give you better skin?  I’ve already started using it this week and I think I’m in love so I’m going to do a separate post on this later in the week.  I also picked up the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream in 32 Light Beige, I’ve heard some great things about this product and I’m always wanting something that will even out my skin tone.  I tried it on my hand and it seemed a little thick so I hope it doesn’t look too oily on my skin, but I am looking forward to trying it and I will keep you posted.

Next up are the Essence Eyebrow Designer in 02 Brown and 04 Blonde, I have seen Sharon the Makeup Artist use these pencils so I thought I would give them a go after seeing their spectacular price of two dollars!  I purchased the blonde as well just in case the brown was a little too dark.  I have always been a fan of the Covergirl mascaras especially the lash blast so I thought I would try the Covergirl Clump Crusher Extensions in Black, I used this for the first time yesterday and it was amazing!  It completely separates the lashes plus adding a lot of length, it almost looked like I was wearing flash lashes!  I also love Covergirl because it is the only mascara formula that does not smudge underneath my eyes, I have even used high end mascaras that smudge so I can’t seem to go past good old Covergirl.

Now for the colour!  Vivianna Does Makeup has raved about the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velevet lip sticks so because desperately needed a new lipstick (not) I thought I would try them out.  I picked up the shades 02 Frambourjoise and 04 Peach Club, these are beautiful!  So creamy and velvety I will definitely be getting my use out of these.  Finally I thought I would try out the new Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy in 420 Winning Streak and the Diamond Top Coat, they had a deal of two for twenty dollars so I got the top coat as well.  I am going to try these out later today so I will keep you posted but if they live up to their promises I will be very happy!

Morning Skincare Regime

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

I love seeing what skincare products people use on a day to day basis so I thought I would post my morning skincare routine in the hopes that you enjoy it!  My goal in life is to be able to feel confident that my skin is looking amazing and I think with the combination of these products I am almost there!

I have been going to the same beautician for around two years and she has done absolute wonders to my skin.  She has been able to get my redness to reasonable level and before I started seeing her I could of run a car of the amount of oil on my face, so I thank her very much for the products that she has introduced me to.  I’ll start with my face wash; ASAP Daily Exfoliating Facial Scrub, I know many people would say it isn’t advisable to exfoliate daily however, this is so gentle that it is not going to do any damage whatsoever.  This scrub is my favourite scrub or cleanser I have ever used, its little sandy particles gently scrub away any dead skin leaving you with a fresh glow and who doesn’t want that?  Next up is the Philosophy Total Matteness Toner, I would say this is a major factor in keeping my oil in control, I don’t know how it does it but it works!  The Alpha H Instant Facial is an absolute marvel, it has completely changed the texture of my skin leaving it nice and smooth as well as clear.  Next is the ASAP Super B Complex Serum.  This is another wonder it has completely controlled my redness, and also helped with the oiliness and it hydrates my skin so there is no excess sebum being produced.  Thank god for that product.  Finally it is the ASAP Advanced Hydrating Moisturiser, this is a beautiful thin moisturiser which sinks into the skin beautifully.  I use this all year round, it’s thin enough to use in summer and hydrating enough to use in winter.  What a marvellous product.

So there are my morning skin care products!  I know there are a lot of ASAP products which is a bit boring but they really work for my skin so I say go with what works!

Holy Grail of Skincare

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

This little beauty is the ALPHA-H Instant Facial with Cypress and Barley.  The idea behind this product is to get the effect of a microdermabrasion or peel from home which is perfect if you don’t want to visit the salon every month.  Now I’ve been lovingly blessed with oily, open pored, red skin with some dry patches thrown in at winter for good measure – lucky me right? This product actually fixes a lot of these problems!  I’ve been using this for three weeks now and I can truly notice the difference.  The texture of my skin has dramatically changed, it is ten times softer than before and even the redness and visibility of pores have been reduced.  I have not been able to say this about a lot of skin care products I have tried over the years so you can understand why I am calling it the holy grail of skincare!

Currently I am using this both morning and night, I spray a generous amount of the product onto a cotton pad and swipe it over my face and neck.   It explains that for a more intensive treatment to not follow up with a serum or moisturiser, in winter I find this a little hard to do, my skin feels far to dry to not follow up with a moisturiser.  In summer I may just use this product without a moisturiser but I will keep you posted.

So now you know why I am loving this product!  Overall my skin has changed dramatically and have been able to easily integrate it into my everyday skincare routine, this will definitely be repurchased in the future.
