Anti-Haul #2 

1. Kylie Cosmetics Brush Set $360

I know its hair is natural, but it is way over priced. And the brand is not that high-end to price it products that high.

Also sigma, morphe and real techniques are great brushes at good prices.

2. Kylie Cosmetics Concealer 

For me I need to see the shades in person and it costs a lot with customs. 

3. Maybelline Super Stay Foundation 

The shade selection is odd and I can’t find a shade to match me. Also I’ve seen that it oxidizes after applying the foundation. 

4. Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Palettes

Not a fan of the the shade selection, over priced. And I prefer my makeup geek and morphe eyeshadows.

What products would you never buy?

Beauty Bay Haul

Antipodes Manuka Honey Face Mask

Third-time re-purchasing this face mask, it helps with hydration and fighting blemishes

Milani Lip Scrub

I have heard good things about this scrub and my lips are really dry during the winter.

BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition Eyeshadow and Highlight Palette

I really like the shade collection, and it seems perfect for travelling.

Morphe Brittney Bear Nose Contour Brush Set

I want to start contouring my nose so I thought this brush set would be perfect.

Skin79 Green Tea Clay Mask

A purifying face mask for oily skin. Drawing out impurities, Green Tea Clay Mask promotes a clear, blemish-free complexion. With small exfoliating beads, dead skin cells are gently removed, oil levels are controlled and pores are protected with natural antioxidants.

I decided not buy the glam glow super mud mask anymore as it is expensive.

Morphe R36 Highlight Brush 

I really like this brush so I bought another one.

Updated Night Time Skincare Routine 

1. I always cleanse my skin with my Clarisonic Mia 2 brush if I’m not wearing makeup. I am currently using the Neutrogena visibly clear pore and shine daily wash.

If I do wear makeup I use the Pixi + Caroline Hirons double cleanse solid cleansing oil and cleansing cream. This really gets rid of the makeup and cleans my skin. I also use the nip and fab night cleansing pads.

2. I try to do a face mask on the weekdays. My favourite masks are the L’Óreal Blemish Rescue Face Mask, glamglow super mud mask, antipodes Manuka honey mask and the ordinary AHA 30% +BHA 2% Peeling Solution.

3. I then tone my face with the ordinary glycolic acid 7% toning solution.

4. For serums, I use the ordinary niacinamide 10% + zinc 1% I use this to help with my acne and oil control. Hyaluronic acid, for hydration. Lactic acid for my texture. I then use the nurse Jamie uplift facial massaging beauty roller to massage everything into my skin.

5. For moisturiser, I use the soap + glory speed plump overnight moisture mousse. For my under eyes puffy eye attack turbo boost hydragel.

6. For blemishes, I use the ordinary salicylic solution or the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion.

Sand & Sky Brilliant Skin Detoxify + Brighten Face Mask- Review 

Description

A 4-in-1 face mask.

Cleansing and detoxifying, Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask refines pores and brightens the complexion. Drawing impurities and pollutants from the pores, leave for 10 minutes to regenerate skin cells, stimulate collagen and leave a healthy, radiant glow.

  • Sold with a small brush applicator for easy, mess-free application.

Review-

Before applying the mask I always cleanse my face and pat it dry with a towel.

I use the brush that it comes with and apply an even layer.

I leave on until the mask fully drys which is usually for 10-15 minutes.

I take the mask off with warm water with a muslin cloth.

Results- I notice that my skin looks cleaner, bright, a little dry. Also some of my blemishes look smaller.

Honestly, I would not re-purchase this product as the price is expensive, and I have other face masks that I prefer.

It is worth getting if have severe acne. Which I do not as I have mild acne.

Skincare Must Haves 

In the morning-

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pore + Shine Wash Cleanser, I use this day and night. I only this in the night if I have not worn makeup all day. This has just been introduced into my routine.

Garnier Pure Active Intensive Blackhead Face Scrub. I use this daily as it is recommended. This helps with blackheads and reducing hyperpigmentation.

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% and Zinc 1% -this potent serum targets breakouts, minimises pores and decongests confused complexions by regulating sebum production. Featuring high concentrations of two of the most efficacious blemish-battling ingredients out there (niacinamide and zinc), this swiftly soothes skin and improves its overall health.

I use this in the morning and at night. I also don’t wear it under makeup as it makes my foundation look dry.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturiser-  I use this in the morning and I apply this all to my face and neck. This moisturiser is great for my skin type combination and the gel does not clog my pores.

Benefit SPF 45 Cream- I always wear SPF, as some of the products I wear recommend it.

In the evening-

I use face masks- Have a look at my blog post on my favourite face masks.

If I wear makeup, I use the Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse Solid Cleansing Oil + Cleansing Cream. This is a double cleanse that really removes my makeup. I also use the face halo which also helps in removing makeup and it helps remove makeup from my pores.

Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution, I use this to tone my skin. Featuring glycolic acid (an alpha hydroxyl acid that exfoliates the skin) this toning solution offers mild exfoliation to boost radiance and visibly restore clarity. Also enhanced with a Tasmanian pepperberry derivative to help reduce the irritation associated with acid use and ginseng and aloe vera to soothe, this is the ideal way to gently refine the texture of your skin. I only use this in the evening.

The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion- helps with even skin tone and I use 2-3 drops.

THE ORDINARY Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%- helps with texture, use 2-3 drops.

Soap & Glory Speed Plump Overnight Moisture Mousse- This helps with keeping my skin really moisturised overnight.

Soap & Glory Eye Cream- just to keep my undereye moisturised.

For my spots, I either use my Mario Badescu drying lotion, CosRX pimple patch or the ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution.

NURSE JAMIE UpLift Facial Massaging Beauty Roller- I use this on my face to really push in the product.
