The Beauty Clean-Up #2 (empties)

Collecting empties is like collecting trash, isn’t it? You laugh but isn’t it just true! It has become even realer now that I have a shoe box to accumulate the ‘trash’ within otherwise my room just looks strangely cluttered. Instead, I have an organised mess which looks a tad bit more presentable and easier to maintain. As such, I’ve collected a certain amount and would very gladly dispose of them…but only after I kindly talk to you about them first!

The Ordinary Skincare Haul +First Impressions

There has been a hot topic going around on the internet: The Ordinary Skincare. Perhaps you have heard of them already through their parent company Deciem, which is home to skincare brands NIOD and Hylamide. Or if like me, follow (and adore) Wayne Goss on YouTube and have been sold by his recommendations of the brand’s products. In short, The Ordinary offers insane prices for cutting edges products – notably serums, which would otherwise cost you the earth elsewhere. (Okay, not really but you get the gist.)  We’re talking £5/6 per product (with few exceptions) which is practically drugstore pricing, but when concerning serums/treatments, this really gives other brands – drugstore or not, a run for their money. Because it really works. Note: For reference I have combination/oily skin type. Here is what I got and my first impressions thus far: Hyaluronic Acid 2%+B5: Hydration in a bottle. If your skin ever needs a drink, it’s this one. This is slightly sticky, but comfortable to use. It absorbs quite quickly so the stickiness disappears just as quickly too. Overnight magic. …

My Current Treatments Routine

Due to the weather change, in the last month I have been more pro-active in keeping the hydration levels of my skin up. Although I have combination/oily skin, I think the same can be said for everyone else that there comes a time when our skin is more vulnerable than normal. A lot of the time (regardless of if your skin is dry/oily/sensitive), we are guilty of suffering from dehydration which causes a skin imbalance. Once that problem gets out of control, more problems seem to arise. Red alert. This is where treatments come in handy! (Ironically, it is super windy outside. Strong winds can be harsh on our skin and blow out any moisture therefore ideally, it needs to be treated.) Here are the featured items that I’m going to be talking about in this post:  Garnier Pure Active 3-in-1 Wash Scrub and Mask The Body Shop Blue Corn 3-in-1 Scrub Mask (discontinued) The Body Shop Mineral & Ginger Warming Massage Clay Mask Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips My Scheming Blackhead Removal Activated Carbon …
