My skincare journey..

Good Evening beauties,

This is a post that I’m a little nervous for, but I am so impressed with my recent results that I just had to share it with you all.

I’ve never ever had good skin, for as long as I remember I have always suffered with redness, blemishes and verging on spot acne. I have been through hundreds of skin care products and the products which always used to work for me were from The Body Shop, they would clear up my skin for a while and it was almost as if they stopped having an effect on me after using them for a couple of weeks and then my skin would go back to a horrible mess. I didn’t used to take pictures of myself without make up as I hated what I saw so you’ll just have to take my word for how bad my skin was but here is what my skin looks like at the moment, it’s definitely not perfect but it is a million times better than it used to be.

After many years of trial and error, I was introduced to the Seaweed collection at The Body Shop. This has changed everything, I started to use the products on a daily basis after finding out my skin type was combination/oily and I’d had a lot of recommendations for this range.

My morning routine starts with the ‘Purifying Cleanser’ and then I use the ‘Gel Day Cream’, this day moisturiser dries so quickly so I don’t find myself having to wait for ages before I can apply my make up. My evening routine starts with the ‘Deep Cleansing Facial Wash’, followed by the ‘Oil-Control Overnight Gel’ and I use the clay mask around twice a week.

If you suffer with similar issues to me when it comes to your skin then I cannot recommend this range enough (as well as making a super special effort to drink lots of water!!!!), it’s not overly expensive and The Body Shop often have discounts floating around.

Look Incredible Beauty Box

Hey guys,

I’ve been wanting to sign up to a monthly beauty box for absolutely ages but didn’t want to waste money on one that wasn’t worth it. I did so much research into all the different brands, and it was actually a post I saw on here that made me choose the ‘Look Incredible’ beauty box. I received my first one this week so thought I’d talk you through what I got, I’ll also give feedback on products I’d recommend from the box once I’ve used them a few times

First of all, the packaging is simple but really luxe considering the box itself is £18.99. In the box I got 5 branded products. I also received a card which had a small paragraph on each of the products and a price on how much they would have come to if ordered on their own, for this box it was £81.99!!

The first product I saw was the ‘Laura Geller – Spackle Under eye Eye Primer’. I don’t tend to use under eye primers so I’m interested to see if this makes a difference to my skin, it does say it brightens though and I’m all up for anything that brightens.

Next was the ‘SmashBox – Blush Soft Light Duo’, I was super excited when I saw this as recently I’ve been wanting to purchase some products from the SmashBox range. This has a gorgeous pinky/champagne highlighter and a coral/pink blush. This looks like the shade blush I would usually chose so I’m hoping this lives up to my expectations.

Another product I was super excited about was the ‘Urban Decay – Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Colour’ in Adrenaline. I’ve never seen or used a lip product like this, its a chunky pencil and has so much glitter as well as pigment. I swatched this briefly on my lips and I think it would give the PERFECT look to any ‘night out’ make up look.

A product and brand that I wasn’t familiar with was the ‘Velvet 59 – My Fair Lashes’ mascara. The wand is really interesting, it has a flat side and goes in about 3/4 of the way up the wand. I’m hard to please when it comes to mascara so I’m interested to try this out.

Finally, the ‘L’oreal Paris – Nutri-Gold Silk’ day moisturiser. I tested this out on the back of my hand and it has a really thick consistency and usually I tend to avoid moisturisers like that as I don’t have the time to wait for them to dry before applying my base make up, especially before work. I do like L’oreal products, both make up and skin care so I’m hoping this is no exception.

Thank you for reading you lovely bunch. It’d be good to know what beauty boxes you guys are subscribed to and if you’ve tried any of the products I’ve received this month.
