Ever since I can remember I’ve loved beauty products of any kind. Firstly, it was all about the makeup. I was seriously fascinated and wish that we had YouTube way back when because it would have been my absolute favourite thing, I’m sure. I was obsessed with What Not To Wear and any makeover show on telly. I read Glamour Magazine from about 15 years old because I just wanted to read the beauty pages and look at the amazing products and read about what they could do to someone’s complexion. Remember graduating from Glitter Babes in Boots to Natural Collection and then taking another step up to 17 makeup? Those were the days!
Don’t you love it when you discover a new brand that you haven’t heard of before and they’re stuff is totally cute and just works? This is how I’m feeling about Korean skincare and beauty brand Erborian right now. This packaging though, it’s so super cute and I’ve been loving these products so far. I get sent quite a few new launches from some lovely PRs and I don’t always blog about them all if they don’t set my world on fire but I’ve really fallen for this brand and wanted to share some of their lovely bits with you.
As if it’s September? It’s basically autumn and summer is well and truly behind us. Well, I hope the weather realises so anyway because I always get so confused this time of year about what to wear. The day will start out freezing and you’ll be sweating by lunchtime. Nightmare. Anyway, seeing as it’s a whole new month I thought I’d share some items I’m lusting over for the new season.
I only arrived home from Greece about two weeks ago but we’ve already booked a short break to Barcelona and I’m so excited. I’ve already been looking up the top things to do so if anyone’s got any recommendations for things to do, places to eat etc I’d love to hear them.
Meet DNA Renewal Regeneration Serum, the step that I apply just after cleansing and toning and just before applying my facial oil or night cream during my evening skincare routine. It’s a little test-tube shaped product of goodness that’s been helping my skin renew and revitalise itself recently.
This winter has totally wrecked my skin. From air con to freezing temperatures and some horrendous cystic acne plus all the sugar spots that Christmas bring us! These are my products that have kept me (almost) sane. I’ve also recently picked up the Sanctuary Therapist Secret Facial Oil in Boots and have used it for 2 nights and have seen an improvement already.
It’s my first Cult Beauty haul (well, mini-haul!) and I’m super excited about these products. I took the plunge at the weekend after being intrigued by the Mizon Honey Black Sugar Scrub. This Korean pot of amazingness is the first ‘pore purger’ that I’ve picked up as weekly treatments to really give my skin a lift. After the first use, my skin felt super soft and it smelled lovely so I’m really looking forward to seeing how it helps my oily skin as time goes on.
