I have come across a few goodies of late that are worthy of a mention and a get-in-your-basket sort of shout out! Of course, I have you share them with you all – it would be rude not to!
Maybelline Lash Sensational
Lashes are my thing! The other day, I walked into the beauty salon to get an eyebrow wax and the lady tells me that my lashes will put the lash industry out of business ha! Sure, I am pretty lucky to have long lashes, but I do also have an arsenal of good products to help take their fluttering to the next level. One of these ‘crime fighting products’ is the Maybelline Lash Sensational. As the name would suggest – it makes my lashes, sensational.
Sure, I use about 5 coats to amp up my lashes (otherwise my lashes aren’t seen #SoPale). Volume, definition and not to chunkifying… yep, this baby gets Lucy’s Lashes seal of approval!
I am a gal with constant instantaneous needs. I don’t like waiting around for things to boil, I don’t like having to dry my skin before slapping on a moisturiser (let alone waiting for my tan to settle), I get antsy when I have to wait for the oven to warm up, so you can understand that I am not one to wait for my hair to stop being brittle and dry. Sadly, getting rid of brittle locks instantly would mean basically shaving my hair off … And I am not ok with that, but getting silky locks within seconds is a bit of an easy-feat for me since the introduction of the Duck & Dry Instant TLC Leave-In weightless conditioner. One heck of a long name, but one hell of a result (and from the creators of my favourite hair-doers-salon)!
Move over typical leave-in conditioners – you have been left at the door with this (new) bad boy! Containing natural actives and less than a 20 pounder, it is sure to hit the hair-market like a hydrating storm!
If you want to take your skin health to the next level – start thinking about what you are putting on the inside. Sure, a good skincare regime and using SPF is vital to prevent premature ageing, but so is what you are consuming. Sugar and pollution has adverse affects on the skin, so investing in a product that helps boost collagen and reduce the appearance of fine lines is always a win. This is where Skinade comes in. Skinade helps to boost your skin, hair and nail health thanks to bio-available ingredients and a tasty formula that is easy to down every morning.
Just to note – Skinade DID take me a good 2 months to see any results, but it is a product that I highly recommend being vigilant with. It won’t happen over night (the results) but overtime, you will start to see it – your skin is more supple, heals quicker than usual and has a general healthiness about it. I am not the only one in my office who loves it – our Ops Director loves it too… and she is Irish so knows a thing or two about good stuff
If you are pale like me, then a little bit of colour is essential to stop you blending into the walls (like I currently do #Opaque as hell). Finding a bronzer suitable for my “British Rose” skin is tough because most are super obvious and make me look like I rolled around in doritos rather than that subtle ’Just been healthily sunning myself in the Med’! Enter Delilah Matte Sunset Bronzer is Light/medium and all my subtle tan dreams came to fruition.
I am SOOOO not one to sit in the sun and damage my skin, so a soft, subtle touch of bronze to have me looking more like the rest of my family (i.e Australian) is always a good help. I literally have bought 4 of these bronzers since discovering their subtly… A girl can never have too many bronzers.
I am a sucker for anything Australian-Beauty. For the first time in my life, I have become somewhat patriotic when it comes beauty… of the Australian variety. Not only do Australians get natural beauty but they understand good price points – we are all a sucker for a good deal. This beauty sits under 10 pounds and is worth so much more.
I’ve recently started thinking more of what I am putting on my skin and have started to cull products that contain too many ingredients I can’t pronounce. Sukin has an ethos grounded in natural ingredients which gets my tick of approval. Not only does this scrub help lift off the dreaded 10pm nasties, but it also helps to soften appearance of fine lines, remove the pollution that living in London produces and well, again… It is Australian!
