Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Hypnotic

Hello lovelies this Bank holiday weekend was rather nice and sunny so I took a stroll down to Covent Garden. Bareminerals has a lovely little boutique there which I like so much more than the counters in department stores. I feel like they have a lot more to look at. I wanted to buy a particular lipstick and pencil but then I saw this. A kaleidoscope of colours in a tube. This magic multi-coloured gloss changes up the colours of what ever lipstick you are wearing. Worn alone gives lips a subtle dimensional effect.

Elemis Total Glow Bronzing Moisturiser | Face

It's finally started to warm up here in the UK so what better time to get your glow on. I've always been into gradual tans because they look so natural, are easy to apply and require minimal upkeep. I also like something that incorporates skincare as I feel that is one less step to worry about. For someone who has oily, blemish prone skin like me finding a tan for my face that won't break me out is pretty much a miracle. Elemis is a well known, trusted British brand that uses active plant extracts. No artificial colours, parabens, silicones or mineral oils. The second I read up on this I purchased it! here What I love about this is that not only does it build up a gradual tan, it improves skin tone and luminosity. Packed with skin loving ingredients like anti-oxidant rich green tea, ginger water and evodia fruit this leaves skin feeling soft and smooth with a beautiful golden glow that creates the perfect base for makeup. What more could a girl want? 
I used this today with minimal makeup and so far I am rather impressed. No greasy film, no fake tan smell. I feel like I'm just putting on my moisturiser. Throughout the day I noticed a welcoming glow peeking through and someone even complimented me on how good my skin looked.

Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System

Facials can be expensive, especially Microdermabrasion.After seeing quite a few demonstrations by some of my most trusted youtubers, I knew I had to have this! I got mine from Amazon here (like I do everything) at around £20 which is a bargain since you get a one month supply of the pre-dosed rejuvenating pads. This is salon quality microdermabrasion at home. I have to say this is incredible. Its so easy to use and used three times a week replaces the use of an exfoliator. The rejuvenating pads release the perfect amount of fine crystals and purifying cleanser to gently exfoliate. You massage each section of your face for one to two minutes, the micro vibrations boost surface cell turnover for smoother, firmer skin. I use this once a week in conjunction with Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser(skincare regime) here The first time I used this I saw an immediate result, my skin was super smooth, clear and my pigmentation considerably less visible. 

What you get:                                                                                          

- Microdermabrasion Applicator
-One month supply of rejuvenating pads (12)
-Attachment head
-AA batteries

How to use it:

Attach one of the pre-dosed pads to the attachment head,blue side facing up. Run under water till we thoroughly. Then snap the attachment head onto the hand-held applicator and switch on. Once you have carefully done each part of your face, take the blue pad off and throw away.

I am really impressed with this little gismo! I feel like I'm really taking my skincare to another level. Hello smooth, blemish free skin! Yippee.

The Perfect Dupe || Diorskin Nude BB Creme

Top- Garnier BB cream | bottom Diorskin Nude BB 

Hello lovelies, so I think I have found the perfect dupe for Diorskin Nude BB Creme! The Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream for oily/combination skin. The moment I tried it it reminded me so much of the Diorskin, the finish is near on the same. They both provide excellent coverage and dry to an almost powdery finish. The textures are different though, the Garnier is really runny and a tad hard to control, the Diorskin is much thicker and smoother in texture. I always set with a powder and find that they both last the same amount of time (8hrs) before wearing off. So if you have oily/acne prone skin and are looking for something light weight but doesn't compromise on coverage, then I think the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector is the one for you! At around £7.99 you can't go wrong.
