Adding technology into your skincare routine has definitely become seriously popular over the past few years. I mean, I saw a Face Gym when I was walking down the Kings Road in Chelsea when we last went to London. WTF is a Face Gym? Answers on a postcard plz!

Say hello to the new range from Neutrogena to hit the UK high street! It’s the No. 1 skincare product in the US from a 2015 Nielsen study and now we can get our hands on it. I’ve been trialling their new Hydro Boost range which is super lightweight yet delivers intense hydration and is absolutely perfect for summer. They say it leads to “skin so supple it bounces back!”.

6 Of The Best Summer Face Masks

Summer changes your skin, that’s for sure. I’ve recently just got over a two-year crazy bad bout of cystic acne on my forehead (with the help of antibiotics) and it’s finally changed how I feel about skincare. I feel like I can really enjoy skincare again because I’m not just focusing on the blemishes, I can really see other skincare products working. I’ve been loving face masks again and it’s got me really excited so I thought I’d share some that are on my wishlist and some that I already love using.
