Sooo I don’t do thaaaat much beauty over on mi blog.
Talking about skincare and products I love doesn’t come particularly naturally to me. I am much more of a sit down n chat about life / cake kinda gal. But y’know, as winter has been pretty darn tough on my skin, I thought I would share a few of my staples witchu, just in case you were having a bit of a mare too.
I have always found that simple, natural products work best on my skin. Nothing fancy, no luxury, just gems I pick up from the high street.
First up, my <3, Micellar water. I have been no.1 fan of this stuff for a couple of years now. SO amazing and gentle for removing makeup. Oh, another tip – pick up your cotton wool pads from the baby section in Boots. They are much bigger and SO much cheaper. eeeeyyyy sneaky >:)
The world and his dog know about the magic of coconut oil. It is friggin’ amazing and you can use it erry’where. Moisturise with it, remove delicate eye makeup, clean your mouth / whiten your teeth, put it in your food. No nasties, just straight up oilz innit. I have had a bit of a mare with eczema this winter. Although it is ruddy hard to get rid of, I have found that massaging in a splodge of coconut goodness into it each night is V soothing.
So this ain’t too much of a beauty thing (although vit D is pretty good for your skin too). Howevs, as you may suffer from a bit of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), these supplements may do wonders. Giving ya an extra dose of vitamin D (that we absorb from the sun) should make you feel a little brighter. Even if the skies are grey and dark, fingers crossed you feel less anxious and a little more like yourself <3
I mentioned this babe in my January Love list. LUSH is just a d r e a m. I have found this Rosy Cheeks face mask to work WONDERS on my skin. It is super soothing and smells absolutely divine. Ya gotta try it out.
I have also mentioned this bae in a previous Love List. Ma beaut Sukin cleansing vegan goodness has almost run out, but I will definitely be grabbing another. The cream smells like almond cake mixture and it has really made such an improvement to my skin. It is also super affordable from Boots at only £7.95. Aw yeaaah.
Obvs had to put the classic Vaseline in here. Not gonna lie, I prefer the aloe vera flavour but it’ll do. I am the queen of chapped lips, so gotta have one of these babbies in ma bag at all times.
I am always on the look out for new beauty gems to try out, what have you been loving recently?
