First Impression: Rimmel Lasting Matte 'Illuminator' Concealer


It's Friday, and as its a bank holiday its a 3 day weekend! Today I wanted to share my first impressions on the Rimmel Lasting Matte 'Illuminator' Concealer. It's been a while since I purchased a Rimmel concealer. So when I saw the 2 for £10 Rimmel offer at Boots I thought it was a good opportunity to try it.


Firstly the packaging is quite classic; with the clear tube, black lid and writing. It does remind me a bit like the Collection lasting perfection concealer.

The formulation is lovely; I wasn't sure on how illuminating a soft matte full coverage concealer can be.  But the full coverage is good especially for my under eye circles. It has a quite long lasting I did have to top up the concealer once to cover up the under eye circles. But with most concealer I have to top it up throughout the day to keep my under eye looking bright and awake!! On the other hand the concealer didn't crease at all throughout the day which was a bonus. I did set it a bit with some powder to help it not crease or set.

As you can tell from the photo this concealer defintely has yellow tones to help counteract the purpleness under the eyes. The range has 11, which is quite limited but hopefully there's a shade for everyone. Also it's quite nice that most concealer shades match the foundation shades.



Overall, I'm really pleased with this concealer that it does cover and illumate my undereye circles.

My Healthy Summer Glow Skincare Routine 2019


Everyone loves a heathly summer glow, whether that's a good glowy skincare routine or some extra highlight. In this post I wanted to share my morning summer glow routine; this usual consists of hydro-boosters serums, toners and moisturisers. For each of these I have shared 2 products that I love and add a lovely healthy glow to the skin.




To start with Toners, a small amount of toner on a cotton pad adds a lovely refreshing base especially on morning skin. One thing I love about toners is little goes a long way. The two I love and change between are the Pixi Rose Tonic and Body Shop British Rose Gel Toner. As you can probably tell I do love a rose toner hahah! The Pixi Rose Tonic is enriched with rose and elderflower and it's lovely at refreshing the skin. As well as calm any redness on the skin, and is great on any facial sunburn. The Body Shop Rose Gel Toner has a lovely formaultion and as it's a gel it makes it refreshing as well as adding a good glow. The smell is stunning, I do love rose scent but it's subtle and not overpowering.
Both toners are lovely bases and really helps refresh your skin to help the healthy glow.


Next the Hydro - Booster Serums, I do tend to mix the serum and moisturiser together before placing them on the skin. The Hydro - Booster Serums of chose are the Neutrogena Hydro Boost and The Hero Project Hyasoft Instant Moisture Boost. Both quite similar in formulation as they are light weight, highly moisturing and refreshing. Both the serums contains hyaluronic acid, which helps retain the skins moisture meaning gives a hydrated glow to the skin.


Then finally, Moisturisers, one of my favoruite steps and the perfect end of morning skincare routine. As well as lovely base for makeup; I do love the Dermologica Skin Smoothing Cream* and Tarte Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturiser. The Dermologica Skin Smoothing Cream* is a lovely light moisturiser containing aloe vera and cucumber.
The Tarte Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturiser, is more of a gel mosituriser but so hydrating. The moisturiser also contains hyaluronic acid, as well as plant extract.
Both make refreshing moisturisers, and the mixture of Hydro - Booster Serums and Moisturier on top of toner makes an amazing hyrated glow to the skin perfect for summer.

Hope you like this post and hope you have a lovely day!

Current Summer Favourites 2019


I do love a favourites post, and I've looked back at previous posts and realised I haven't done one in a while. So today I wanted to share some of my favourites from the past few months; both beauty and lifestyle.



Beauty

Discovering new makeup and beauty products is one of my favourite things to do. As well as re discovering old favourites.

Definitely my go to at the moment is the Charlotte Tilbury Dreamagsm Palette, the shades are stunning. The pigmentation is lovely and the packaging is gorgeous. The little mirror also makes it travel friendly. To finish every eye look reently I have been using the  Rimmel London Wonder'Luxe Volume Mascara. Lovely mascara which adds length, volume and it's also great for layering to create more dramatic lashes.


I have really been loving lip products recently so I have quite a few top ones:
For a base lip balm my go to is the Nivea Mango Shine Lip Balm*, which I was kindly gifted and loving!! It really smells and tastes like mango and I LOVE IT!! ahah! Also creates a soft base for any lipsticks,
This is one lip I have been loving recently is the Colourpop x Zoella @Me. It's a gorgeous pink liquid lip with a lightweight non drying formulation which is exactly what I like for a matte lip.
I'm loving the combo of the @Me with the Fenty Gloss for an everyday summer gloss lip. The gloss is stunning by itself as well as layered on top of other lips. As the gloss is a lovely shimmering rose nude shade.
For a more summer occasion lip; Rimmel Stay Satin 'It Girl' Liquid Lipstick is a gorgeous sophisticated lip. As its pinky-brown nude but with red undertones so it's more of a darker nude in my collection. The formulation is also lovely.

Other Favourites

As it's been summer, I have been binge watching shows from either Netflix or Amazon Prime. Some my favourites have been Ugly Betty and Teen Moms UK. I have already watched Ugly Betty but many years ago. So it was lovely to watch it again and remember how much I love it! Teen Moms UK has been a show that I've heard a lot about and watched to watch for a while. So when I saw it amazon prime I was delighted and got through the series very quickly.

I have a drink favourite; elderflower cordial I think make such refreshing summer drink. Elderflower cordial with some alcoholic spirits (vodka and gin) are also lovely too ;)

Hope you like this post and hope you are having a lovely day!

Rimmel Stay Satin 'It Girl' Liquid Lipstick


Happy Monday!! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I do love liquid lipstick, as I like the long-lasting formulation so will last all day. Before I had only tired liquid matte lipstick which can be quite drying but I recently got the Rimmel Stay Satin Liquid Lipstick in It Girl. Rimmel had a deal if you spent £12 you got a free summer gift which contained one of their eyeshadows and this gorgeous lip. 



To start with the packaging of the Rimmel Stay Satin 'It Girl' Liquid Lipstick is classic. I love that the packaging shows the shade of the lipstick. So you know exactly what shade you are buying, and for Rimmel it can show the shade range they have bought out. 



The Rimmel Stay Satin 'It Girl' Liquid Lipstick is a pinky-brown nude (haha classic me shade!). But does have some red undertones making it a slightly darker nude The share compliments my ghostly skin tone really nicely and goes with most eye looks. 


As previously mentioned liquid matte lipsticks can be quite drying on the lips. So I was intrigued by how the formulation would differ to make it a satin finish. As usual I prime the lips with a lip balm and honestly, it glides on and doesn't cling on to dry patches. It doesn't feel uncomfortable on the lips which are a bonus. I do have to admit that it slightly drying if you don't apply lip balm as a basis for the lip. The finish is as it says on the tube 'satin' so like a matte but with a slight sheen glossy finish. I love this finish, as it's a nice balance of matte and gloss that's comfortable on the lip but has a long-wearing formulation. 


 Hope you like this post, please comment if you have tried any of the Rimmel Satin Lips.

My 5 Go To Mascaras 2019


IT'S FRIDAY!!! Therefore the weekend is in upon us which is probably quite good for most of us haha. I'm also back from a non-intentional but needed break from social media. But gladly I feel a bit me and more motivated to get back to my blog and posting again.
In today's post, I wanted to share my 5 go-to mascaras. I do love a good mascara and especially one that doesn't transfer when it's warm so I don't look like a panda haha. I do like false effect lashes, so lots of volume and length without looking clumpy or spidery. I also seem to love oil-enriched mascaras.




The most mentioned mascara on my blog is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara, I can't even count the number of mascaras I've own over the past few years. For long voluminous lashes and doesn't flake which is an added bonus. The brush is so easy to use and grabs every lash. The packaging is also classic with the black tube and pink metallic writing.

The most recent discovery is the Rimmel London Wonder'Luxe Volume Mascara. I've been using this mascara everyday for over a month and loving it! The bristle brush grabs every lash; adding length and volume to every lash. It's also has a buildable formulation to create lots of volume. I also love the metallic pink packaging!



My favourite curl mascara is the Benefit Roller Lash; adds volume, length as well as curls lashes. The mascara is buildable so creates everyday lashes and also creates more dramatic fan eyelashes. The applicator brush is really good - gets every lash and separates them as well.

Another drugstore mascara I love is Max Factor Masterpiece Lash Crown Defining Mascara. Firstly the packaging I think is so chic with the gold crown lid. The brush is also unique, with the curve brush on one side and a ball brush on the other for the bottom lashes. The mascara creates nice full lashes with added length and volume. 


This was one mascara I got after seeing a lot of hype about, hoping I would love it and I do! This mascara is the Tarte Light, Camera, Lashes. To start with the formulation and pigmentation are amazing as it adds length and volume. Similarly to the benefits one, the brush is great at separating lashes to create fan lash effect.

Hope you like this post and it would be amazing if you could comment on your favourite mascara as I do love trying.

Summer Bold Lip Edit 2019


Guess who's back! haha, I decided to take a little break from social media and blogging but today I'm back with my 'Summer Bold Lip Edit'. I'm usually a nude lip sort of girl but I do love a bold lip in the summer with a natural eye. 



There's 3 sorts of bold lip I like is Berry, Red and Bright Pink. As well as different formuations; lipstick, lip gloss and matte liquid lipstick.

Berry lips are more of a winter lip but I do sometimes wear it in summer as it does suit my pale skin tone. The three berry lips I have in my collection is the 'Rimmel Kate Moss 07' and 'Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Bewitching' and the 'Sleek Matte Lip in Velvet Slipper '. For the summer time I usually wear the lipgloss over a nude lip for more of a subtle bold lip.

Red lips are more of a classic and sophiscated bold lip. I feel like there is always something quite chic in wearing a red lip. There are a variety of undertoned red lips as well on the market; some pink toned, orange toned, brown toned as well as some pure red. I usually lean towards the more pinky undertoned reds
or post box red haha. The purest red I've got is the 'L'Oreal Colour Riche 461' and the 'Tanya Burr Liquid Lip in Christmas Stocking'. The L'Oreal lip is more of a creamy formulation which I like especially in the heat. I love this with a simply makeup, glams up any look. A more subtle red is the Soap and Glory Matte Lip in Choccoberry, a red lip with brown undertones which suit my skin tone really nicely.

Out of all three, bold pink lips are probably my favourite - more me! My favourite pink lip is the 'Benefit They're Real! Double The Lip & Liner In One Travel Sized Mini in 'Pink Thrills' which is a lip stick and liner in one. So so simply to apply and use and as it's a mini perfect handbag/small bag fit. The pigmentation of the lip is so lovely.

The photo below shows seom of the swatches of the bold lips mentioned; group in colour order.


Hope you like post and are having a lovely Monday!

Please comment on your favourite bold summer lips.

Products I'll Always Re-Purchase #2


I love finding products that I know I will repurchase again and again, as they work for me, my skin tone and lashes. Quite a lot of these products I know are other favourites, as to buy in the first place I  heard good recommendations.


For a lovely eye base to keep your eyeshadow staying all day is the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Creme de Beige. It's a long staying high pigmented base which is a perfect skin match for me hah so I could also use it as a concealer. This is already my second pot for this, the first pot lasted ages as a small amount goes a long way. The packaging is also lovely and great for travel also.

Well, I'm not sure how many Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara I have owned over the past few years. This is definitely my go-to mascara for long voluminous lashes and doesn't flake which is an added bonus. The brush is so easy to use and grabs every lash.



I do love a full coverage concealer, and Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer is AMAZING!!! Full coverage, lovely formulation and affordable so we will definitely repurchase again. I have already bought at least 3 concealers already but definitely will get more in the future. I also love the wide shade range so perfect for everyone.  

Well, this lip gloss has been mentioned a lot the past few months, the NYX Butter Gloss in 'Tiramisu' is a gorgeous pink gloss. Perfect for the summer and spring months and goes great with a range of eye combo looks. I love this especially with a golden eye or a copper brown eye. The gloss also has a lovely formulation which glides onto the lips.

A lippie I always seem to go back to is the MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick, the lovely browny red undertones suit my pale skin tone and with most looks. The packaging is classic and the bullet shape stands out in my collection. I'm still on my first Velvet Teddy lipstick but its nearly finished so will definitely get another one when it's finished.

Hope you like this post and have a lovely day.

Please comment on the products that you will always repurchase.

Summer Makeup Menu 2019




Happy Monday! I took a little week off blogging as I was busy in London, completing a short course as well as seeing friends and family. So to make the most of it I took a slight step back from social media which I kind of needed haha. Today I wanted to share my summer makeup menu and probably the makeup I will take on holiday.


Base

England has actually been sunny for once, meaning SPF is especially important. SPF is needed all year round but I don't particularly want a burnt face in summer. My go to is the Solait SPF 50+ fluid liquid as I'm so pale. As it has UVA rating too which helps anti ageing. I'm also using a Lactic Acid serum at the moment at night so I have to be careful with the sun and wear suncream.

Brows

I'm a powder palette sort of person for brows - my go to at the moment is the Rimmel Brow Palette. The palette has a powder and a wax which you can mix together to create your right shade. As it only contains 2 shades it's lovely for travelling as its so small. The packaging is quite basic but does the job haha.



Eyes

For eyeshadow, I use the Charlotte Tilbury 'Dreamgasm' Luxury Palette, definitely going to be my go to over the next few months. You also can't go wrong with a bit of Charlotte Tilbury haha.  The shades are so summery, and you can create a variety of shades with such 4 shades, natural and dramatic. The red toned shade compliments the green in my eyes really nicely and I use this as a crease shade for a variety of my eye looks.

 One of my go-to mascaras is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara; I love the formulation and the way it makes my lashes look. It adds lots of length and volume to create every day as well as a dramatic lash. This mascara slightly differs from the original Lash Sensational as it's enriched with a blend of precious oils; rose, safflower and argan oil. As it has this oil enriched the brush is slightly different to reach every lash.


Face

Going back to an old favourite, I use the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation. The formulation is really nice and lightweight on the skin. For a bit extra coverage on any blemishes, any redness and under eye circles I use the Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer. The coverage of this concealer is lush and so pigmented. Then to set my face I use the ABH Light/ Medium Contour Palette; 'Vanilla' is a lovely yellow powder to set under the eyes. Then a mixture of 'Sand', 'Vanilla' and 'Banana' I use to mattify the face and to prevent any shine throughout the day. Then 'Fawn' and 'Java' to bronze the face and add shape to prevent me from looking pale and get a summer tan.
Then for a summer glow, I'm loving the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Highlighter in "Hu$tla Baby". It adds a lovely golden glow to the skin - making it looked golden which looks lovely in the sun.
A swipe of highlighter on the cheekbones, on the brow bone and the top of the lips, easily completes the look.


Lips

One of my favourite parts of makeup; the lips as there are so many options to chose from and really finishes off a look. There's honestly a variety of shades and formulations I could pick from. A firm favourites of mine at the moment is the NYX butter gloss in Tirmasu it's a lovely pink gloss perfect for all occasion. Other favourites are CT 'Miss Kensington' or Fenty Gloss.

Hope you like this post for a fairly simple summer look. Definitely will be packing all these products on holiday.

Please comment some of your summer makeup favourites.

The Wardrobe Addition I'm Making Space For Summer 2019


I recently read a post from Kate La Vie blog on The Wardrobe Addition I'm Making Space For Spring and love it and the clothing items which mentioned so thought I would do a similar post with some of the clothes I would lvoe for summer. 


I do love ASOS, and they have some gorgeous pieces which are perfect for summer. They have alot of lovely pieces but these are my favourites:
ASOS DESIGN square neck linen midi sundress
As you can tell I been loving playsuit, jumpsuirs and maxi dresses this season. Super flattering and perfect for every occasion. 



PrettyLittleThing is a brand that I love the look of their clothes but never actually bought any of their clothes. These pair of trousers look so flattering they are the Diya Black Pin Stripe Casual Trousers . These look lovely and light weigh for the summer season.


One of my favourite clothing brands is Boohoo; an afforable brand and most of their stuff are my style which is a bonus. Two of my favourites are:
Mini Polka Dot Short Sleeved Shift Dress
Tall High Waist Twin Pack Denim Mom Shorts
Shift dresses are my favourite as they arent too tight fitting as I'm quite a self consicous person so want to feel comfortable. Then as I'm tall I usually shop for bottom clothing like trouers, jean and jumpsuits in the tall section of sites. This short look super comfortable and perfect for holidays so we defintely but these soon.



Zara is a very me that suits my style. These shoes look lovely for summer and a good dupe for the Chanel espadrilles and about the 20% of the price. These are called Esparto Espadrilles and Zara do a variety of shades.


Another high street brand I love and regularly shop at is New Look. This one piece that stood out to me which is part fo the Rochelle Edit and its a lovely Red Spot Shirred Square Neck Top. I do love a bit of red in my wardrobe and this looks lovely and summery. And spots and square necks are very much in fashion this season.


I'm going to Africa this summer so to respect the culture you need to cover up - dunagrees are perfect. As they long legged and with a tee is a lovely effortless look. I love these  Lucy and Yak Umi Dunagrees and are made out of 100% organic cotton which is an added bonus.



Sunnies are a must for summer to protect your eyes from the suns glear so I've actually recentl purchased the M&S Sorrento Cat Eye Sunglasses. Personally I love the cat eye style and I think look flattering on my face shape.


Hope you like this post and hope you have a lovely day!

Please comment if there are any items that you are hoping to buy this summer season,

What I've Been Watching, Reading and Listening To Lately June 2019


Happy Wednesday! I'm quite a nosey person so I find 'What I've Been Watching, Reading and Listening To Lately' so interesting. As I'm always looking for new things to watch, to read and to listen too. So in today's post I wanted to share what I've been doing the past few weeks/months.



Watching

I've definitely turned into a binge series sort of person; my friends do make fun out of me how quickly I can get through a series. At the moment I have been loving the Netflix original 'The Society', 'Gavin and Stacey' has been repeatedly watched as well as the latest series of 'Jane the Virgin'.

Reading


As I've mentioned in a previous post similar to these I'm not much of a book reader. I do love a good fashion magazine (makes nice blog flatlays as well ;)). I usually get a different one most months; dependent on the articles. So my go tos are either Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Glamour and the Blogosphere Magazine. All the magazine have amazing photography and articles but can also give create beauty and fashion inspiration.

Listening

There have been lots of things I've been loving to list to recently including the latest Lewis Capaldi album "Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent". But I do also love a good musical so I've been loving the 'Six' and 'Waitress'  soundtrack; they've been on in the background whilst doing my workouts.



Hope you like this post and have a lovely day!


Please  comment on what you've been watching, reading and listening to lately.

Holiday Makeup Essentials 2019


Last week I was in a bit of a bloggers writing block, one of the suggestions was a 'Holiday Essentials' post. It is coming up to holiday season, some of my friends and family are already on holiday and I will be soon. So in today's post, I wanted to share my holiday makeup essentials which would definitely be in my makeup bag as well as my usual makeup items aha.


Good skincare is a must for me on holiday especially on hot days as you want your skin hydrated and sun protected. Therefore every morning I apply a mixture of the Solait Face Suncream SPF 50 and Neutrogena Hydro Boost Supercharged Booster. As you need to protect your skin as I'm so pale I need SPF 50 haha.


I do try to not take too much makeup on holidays so I do love palettes. Well my go-to palette at the moment is the Charlotte Tilbury 'Dreamagsm' Palette. This champagne, copper-bronze and rose-gold shade palette are perfect for travelling. It's a gorgeous compact palette where you can create a variety of looks with only 4 shades. The mirror is a lovely feature which is great for travelling and to have it on the go.


My go-to face palette is the ABH Contour Palette, with 3 powders and 3 bronzer/contour shades. I love with this palette that the bronzer shades can easily become eye shadows. These shades are also lovely on the face and blend very easily. The powders are so fine therefore not look cakey and create at mattifying any shine. As well as no flashback for the holiday photos hahaha which is an added bonus.


I do love my lip options, different colour, formulations dependent on my mood and look. I usually go a bit overboard with the lip option, on well aha. These are 2 options which will definitely be in my makeup bag:
I do love a good lipgloss at the moment and I have especially been wearing the NYX Butter Gloss in Tiramisu. I do the formulation of these lip glosses literally like butter on the lips. The shade is a lovely pinky nude, which is beaut just by itself or layered on top of other lipsticks or with a liner.



For a matte lip, Zoella X Colourpop '@Me' Liquid Lipstick which is a gorgeous dusty mauve lipstick shade. The applicator is also really easy to use, to create the perfect lip shade and matches my 'Pillowtalk' CT liner which is lovely if I want a more plump lip look. The formulations are lovely also not drying at all for a matte lip which I know can happen quite common in matte lips. The pigmentation is also so good for the price. 


Hope you like this post and it can be useful!

Please comment on your holiday makeup essentials.

Trying Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadows



Charlotte Tilbury is one of my favourite brands which most of you would probably know if you are a frequent blog reader of mine. But I have mainly tried her lipsticks, some of her skincare and perfume.  I really like the look of the Charlotte Tilbury eye products and I have had my eye on a few products in particular for a while. But as CT is more of a pricey brand I wanted to make sure I liked them before buying them. So I did do a little haul and treated myself to some CT eye products.


Firstly I treated myself to the 'Dreamgasm' Luxury Palette, I do love the CT little quad as they look so cute and perfect for travel. I do love rose gold, sparkly eye looks so when this limited edition palette and it contained all champagne, copper-bronze and rose-gold shades. I was like YES PLEASE!! haha and added to my basket. The 'Dreamgasm' Palette is lovely in the fact that it contains shades from a mixture of different palettes, including the Transform-eyes, Pillow Talk and Bella Sofia Luxury Palettes. Which I like for a first luxury palette purchase, as it has been deciding between the Pillow Talk and the Bella Sofia (previously Dolce Vita) for a while but now its the best of both worlds.
This palette is gorgeous for summer with its rich rose golds and bronze shades, which I think compliments my green eyes. The formulation and pigmentation are lovely as well, easy to blend. As there are 4 shades you can use them all of them for a look or just a few shades. The matte shade is definitely the most pigmented, the glitter shades are gorgeous but not as pigmented as the matte with is usual for palettes.  


The 'Bronzed Garnet' Colour Chameleon, I have waited for years! Really since Zoe and Tanya's 5-minute makeup challenge which I think was summer 2016. They both used it all over the lid and smoked it out and looked stunning. I did have a quick look on the website and saw it was in the shades for green eye section as it's a metallic red toned bronze. So it has been sat in my basket for a while so finally bought it haha. Eyeshadow pencils are so easy to use, just a swipe of colour and blend. Therefore a quick and simple eye look but does look stunning on the lid. The packaging also feels luxurious which is a bonus.  


I love both of these products, and even though it was a little chunk out of my bank account aha but I know that I will get a lot of use out of the palette and eyeshadow stick. 

Hope you like this post and hope you have a lovely day!

Please comment on what your favourite Charlotte Tilbury product is...

Summer Skincare Routine using Nivea*


Recently, I was added to Nivea Family which I'm very grateful about as Nivea is one of my favourite skincare brands. Therefore I was kindly sent a package containing some of their new Urban Skincare range. So I have been testing out the Urban Skincare range alongside some other Nivea products that I already own. To create a full skincare routine using Nivea; which is effective and makes your skin lovely and clean.

To start with the cleanse; I either use the MicellAir Professional Micellar Water or
the Biodegradable Cleansing Wipes* dependent on my mood haha. 
MicellAir Professional Micellar Water is lovely micellar water to get all your makeup off and leaving your face lovely a fresh. I have tried both the usual and the waterproof one and love them both. So small amount on 2 large oval pads is perfect for cleansing the whole face. 
Usually, when I'm tired or if I'm travelling I use the Biodegradable Cleansing Wipes as they are easy to use and gets all my makeup off including my heavy makeup and lots of mascara. I haven't used wipes in ages, however as they are 100% plant fibres and the fragrant is lovely as well. 



Next, I use the 3-in-1 Urban Skin Detox Clay Wash*; this is a wash, scrub and mask all in one. A small pea amount of the clay wash is enough to wash your whole face and leaves your face sparkling and wash haha. I tend to use it in the evening, after cleansing but also sometimes in the morning to leave more refreshed. I usually use this as a mask once a week; I usually apply it on a dry face and using the PMD Clean* device to equally distribute the prodcut on my face but you can ust use your hands. Then leave it for 5 mins and wash it off with warm water. 


I use this only once a week and then I use the Peel off Urban Skin Detox Mask*. Both the Detox Mask and the Clay Wash contains Black Rice and Green Tea extract which are both lovely on the skin and leaves your skin feeling radiant. I do love this on a pamper evening and I love that it's peeling.


Finally for moisturiser; for the mornings I use my trusty Day Essentials Moisturising Day Cream*. I was kindly sent another one but I have been using this for years, a lovely light moisturiser which leaves your skin so smooth and a lovely makeup base. The added SPF 15 is a bonus, protecting your skin from the sun throughout the day. 
Then for the evening, I use my current favourite night cream; the Pure and Natural Night Cream. It's a lovely and rich cream which leaves your face lovely and soft. And your makeup applies gorgeously the next morning and adds a summer glow to the skin.

The combination of these products makes your skin lovely and clean, cleansing all the makeup off and has helped me preventing blemishes. As all these products are Nivea they are super affordable and can get from your local shop. I would highly recommend all these products.

Hope you like this post and hope you have a lovely day!

Please comment on your favourite Nivea prodcuts?
