There is nothing I love more in the summer than having beautifully soft skin. But having naturally dry, very sensitive skin, it is hard to achieve. Still I truly believe that this summer I have finally cracked it and in this post I will share my whole routine as well as some of the tricks I have discovered on the way. Continue reading
I have recently had a less than great experience when my impossibly sensitive eyes decided to develop a makeup allergy. Like the great millennial that I am , I immediately turned to the internet for help (cuz who needs a doctor when you have google right?) and I really had to dig on a few different medical websites for all the different pieces of information. So I decided to do a whole blog post dedicated to this subject and include all the information I wish was available to me when I went thru it. I hope that if you are experiencing this , my post helps and do keep in mind that I am not a doctor and all this advice is what I personally did and helped in my situation. Continue reading
So the other day I went to the drugstore to get a new foundation and got out with a few more things than I was planning but heck good thing I have a blog to justify buying all these things. Come on, raise your hand if you ever got anything and justified it as “research ” for your blog and be honest! So here are my new research subjects.
Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation ( 100 Ivory) This cold season my skin really transformed from quite oily to really dry and my beloved Makeup For Ever HD Foundation has become to drying for my skin and it just didn`t look good anymore . This foundation is nowhere near as high coverage as the HD foundation ,luckily my skin has been really good lately, but I love the natural and glowy finish it has and I think it is the perfect spring foundation.(14.50$)
Sephora Professional Mineral Powder Brush (# 45) The only non drugstore item in this haul but still a really good price for a face brush . It really is the perfect pair for my new Rimmel foundation , giving it a flawless look and making it look just like skin. The quality is amazing as well, the brush is very soft and after a few washes there hasn`t been any sign of shedding . It is my new obsession, I adore it. (24$)
Garnier Micelar Cleansing Water I am going to start by saying that I am a huge fan of micelar water , and I have tried quite a few of them in my attempt to find one just as good as my Bioderma Micelar water for sensitive skin.This is the cheapest one I have discovered so far and it is also the largest so from an economic point of view I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will like it. I have not tried it yet as I am still working on my L`oreal one but if anyone is interested I would love to do a review.(9$)
Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Makeup Remover I prefer using this type of eye makeup remover that has the separated oil because it works so much better on my waterproof mascaras, but I am not to picky when it comes to choosing one so I picked this one up just because I needed a new one , still who knows I might end up really liking it . (6.20$)
Freeman Chocolate and Strawberry Clay Mask I have recently started using masks and stuck with using the Apivita sashes ones that aren`t that cheep if you really add it up . This is the first tube of mask I have ever got , it is really affordable and I have heard some great things about it so I am looking forward to trying it. This particular one claims to moisturizer and tone.(5.50$)
Neutrogena Deep Moisture Body Lotion for Sensitive Skin Honestly the only reason I got this was because it said ” 60% extra free” on it . Truthfully I love the Body Shop Body Butters but I am just not up for paying that much for a body product. This one really surprised me I think it is a really great no-nonsense body moisturizer that does its job . It might not smell like strawberry or cupcakes but that might be a good thing since you don`t have to worry about it competing with your perfume. (7$)
If you find any of this products interesting and want to hear more about it let me know and I would love to do a more in-depth review or answer any of your questions.
