BLOGMAS – DAY 21 – December Favourites

Hey guys,

Welcome to the 21st day of my blogmas! Only 4 days left! Today’s post is going to be my favourite products from this month!

So let’s get started!

Body care

Sleepy, mask of magnamity, snow fair body conditioner from Lush and VeeBeautyLdn’s eyelash and eyebrow serum and two lip balms. I love using all of these, definitely would recommend for you guys to try it out!

The body scrub by what’s in it for me, smells edible and leaves your skin feeling incredible! (Haha rhymes)

Fragrance

So fragrance were kind enough to gift me with these beauties at the Blogosphere Christmas festival last weekend and they all smell so lovely! So affordable and pretty! You can purchase these from most boots stores and would make great stocking fillers!

Face mask

Im loving this face mask at the moment! You can check out my full review on L’Oréal’s pure clay masks here.

Makeup

This is a recent buy of mine from Urban Decay and it is the Heavy Metal palette. Don’t let this picture fool you, this palette is HUGE well.. in comparison to their other palettes. I swatched it in the shop and bought it then and there that’s how much I loved it! Will do some looks using it soon!

Hair care

I was also luckily enough to be gifted these at the Blogosphere Christmas festival too by Ogx! I LOVE their hair products! Been using their shampoo and conditioners for maybe 2 years now, my hair definitely thanks me for it!

Books

This is my favourite book of this month! I love it! Check out my review for it here.

Netflix

These are my two favourite series at the moment, not just for this month but they’re what I’m watching this month! If you haven’t seen either or any of them I definitely suggest that you should!!

My Skincare Routine

Hi guys,

I hope you’ve all had a good Monday and have a good rest of your week!

Today I’m doing a blog post on my current skincare routine, I say current as I’m pretty sure it’ll change within a month.

Skincare is subject to skin type so in order for you to know if these products may be of benefit to you it’s probably best I disclose my skin type… (drum roll please)… dry and sensitive mostly but in the summer it can get oily.

I would also like to apologise in advance for the quality of the photographs as the lighting was awful (ugh English weather) and I couldn’t lay the bottles flat as they wouldn’t stop rolling…

The order in which I do my skincare routine are as follows:

  1. Cleanse/wash
  2. Tone
  3. Spot cream/gel
  4. Serum
  5. Eye cream
  6. Moisturiser
  7. Oil
  8. Primer…..makeup as usual.

My morning and afternoon skincare routines are different.

In the morning I usually cleanse my face using The Body Shops’ Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser.

Then before I leave for work I use Dr Botanicals ‘Tropical Invigorating Cream’ duo moisturiser.


However in the afternoon after my shower/bath I will do a longer skincare routine.

First I wash my face using The Body Shops’ Tea Tree Skin Clearing FacialWash.


Then I use a cotton pad to apply The Body Shops’ Tea Tree Skin Clearing Mattifying Toner on my face and neck.


After this I apply LUSHs ‘Grease Lightning’ spot treatment gel over any blemishes I have on my face.

Check out my review here.

Then use The Body Shops’ Vitamin C Skin Reviver Instant Smoother and spread this over my T-zones. (Also works as a great primer)


Then I use The Body Shops’ Vitamin E Eye Cream, I apply this on my eyelid and underneath them.

After the eye cream has dried I then apply the Dr Botanicals ‘Tropical Invigorating Cream’ duo moisturiser again.

When that’s soaked into my skin I then apply The Body Shops’ Tea Tree Oil onto my T-zones and gently pat it down using two fingers.

That’s my skin routine almost finished!

Once/twice a week (depending on how many days I wear makeup) I exfoliate my face using The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub.

I also use face masks 3 days a week, I normally do 2 days of day masks and one sleeping mask.

I use L’Oreal Pure Clay masks as a day mask.

I use two different sleeping masks, alternatively to how my skin is.

If my skin is feeling dry I use The dr Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask. Check out its review here

If I have a few blemishes/spots I use The Body Shops’ Tea Tree Anti-imperfection Night Mask.


That’s a wrap!

A full review of The Body Shops’ Tea Tree range will be posted soon!

Thank you all so much for reading! I hope it’s been useful and please leave a comment what your favourite part of your skincare routine is.

Love, Jess x

Review: Dr Botanicals Pomegranate superfood sleeping mask

Hey guys,

Hope you’ve all had a good Monday! Today’s post is a review on Dr Botanical’s Pomegranate superfood sleeping mask.

This is the packaging that it came in which I think is adorable, but hey I’m easily amused.

this face mask is 100% vegan and cruelty free! So that’s a bonus.

This is an overnight mask, you’re supposed to apply a thin layer onto your skin and leave it to dry into your skin. You can physically see this happen as when you first apply it, it is a white creamy consistency and then within 10 minutes it fades and sinks into the skin.

It contains pomegranate extract which is a strong antioxidant and aims to smooth and brighten the skin. It also contains almond oil which is rich in fatty acids (doesn’t sound appealing but it does good!) these hydrate and nourish the skin.

I recommend to use it 3 times a week to notice a difference!

My overall opinion on this face mask is good! It hasn’t got a strong/harsh scent, easy and convenient to use (sleeping masks always appeal to the lazy part of me) and it left my skin feeling hydrated and refreshed!

Thank you so much for reading this post! I hope you all have a lovely week.

Feel free to comment your holy grail face masks!

Love, Jess x
