Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder | Essential Twenty

For the past 5 years or so I’ve been pretty loyal to the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. It takes the shine off, it lasts all day and it’s a bargain! However, I’ve started to notice that my undereyes have been creasing so I need something a little stronger.

Life Update #1: The One Where I Joined The Gym | Essential Twenty

My life seems to be work, eat, blog, sleep, repeat. All the time. But not anymore, oh no. I said that I want to see more of the world, heck, I just want to see more of the country!

Face Mask Friday: Nip + Fab Glycolic Instant Fix Mask

on September 15, 2017

A while ago I picked up a pack of two Nip + Fab masks. I haven’t tried anything from them in the past, and thought this was a great way to introduce myself to the brand. We know I love a face mask so I was eager to try them out! Today I’m talking about my impressions of the Nip + Fab Glycolic Instant Fix Mask, which definitely wasn’t what I expected to be.

REN Perfect Canvas | Essential Twenty

Recently I’ve found PR packages few and far between. Whilst this may seem sad to some, this has been great for me. I’m trying to declutter my life and alongside this, I’ve been able to really try out new products for a reasonable period of time. At the back end of August REN Perfect Canvas* was launched, their first almost-makeup product amongst their fantastic skincare line.
