In January 2018, I declared that I was going cruelty free with my beauty products. This means makeup, skincare, bodycare and haircare. I’ve had just one slip up so far, and that was due to poor packaging, but other than that I’ve been doing okay. There are a lot of products I don’t need to repurchase for quite some time (I have more mascara than any girl needs, and I have a few shampoos knocking about), but I’ve been having a skincare overhaul and wanted to try a few more CF bits and pieces. Lucky for me, all of Superdrug’s own brand products fall under the cruelty free label.
My skincare routine is shot. Honestly, I have no desire to do anything other than remove my makeup most nights and slap on a face mask once a fortnight (which is a real shame as I have so many masks to use up, especially sheet masks). I could lie and say that it’s because I’m out of routine with Christmas throwing everything off, but if I’m going to tell the truth, it’s because I simply can’t be bothered. But not being bothered has not left me with happy skin. It’s dry yet spotty, and it’s dehydrated. To help with a few of my skin issues, I raided my skincare stash and found the Bioderma Hydrabio Crème* and it’s left me with much happier skin.
Despite not including it as a goal for 2018, a big thing I need to get back into this year is skincare. I have spates of having a great skincare routine then months of just about managing to remove my makeup each evening. I’ve always thought that The Original MakeUp Eraser Makeup Remover Cloth looked like it could be the answer to my quiet prayers, so when I spotted the Primark Makeup Remover Cloth (part of the PS collection) in early Autumn for a mere £1.50, as opposed to £16 for the original, this was an obvious buy for me.
I’m a big lover of face masks – in fact, I put together a whole series about my face mask stash. There are currently 4 that don’t leave my bathroom because I use them so much! Today I’m sharing those masks, linking you to my full reviews on them (in case you’re interested) and letting you know why I love them so darn much!
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.
Over the bank holiday weekend, I packed up and popped over the English channel for a fun weekend with a couple of my fave blogging ladies. Whilst the majority of my money was spent enjoying a few glasses of alcohol, responsibly of course, as beauty bloggers, we couldn’t let a trip to the continent pass us by without a trip to Sephora!
