Reviving my Skin with Janjira

I am always switching up my skincare based on how my skin is looking/feeling every couple of weeks. This pregnancy has taken a toll on my skin. It changes all the time. One day my skin would look flawless(or as near to flawless as you can get) and the next day it would be a whole different story. It's so annoying. When my skin is looking tired and dull I like to remedy that with two products from Janjira, the Illuminating Day Cream and Instant Brightening Bubble Mask from their Marine Radiant White skincare range.

Shea Moisture Argan Oil and Almond Milk Smooth and Tame Shampoo and Conditioner

I have thin, coloured hair which can be quite unruly at times. It tangles up like no other and the ends of my hair tend to get quite dry and frizzy, especially when using any heat tools(though I tend to avoid them most of the time). In the past I excessively used heat products(straighteners, hairdryer, curling wands etc) and I also dyed my hair multiple times a month. My hair was in quite a nasty state as you can imagine, but luckily it's a lot better than what it was, though not back to it's 'virgin' state. 

Now, as I mentioned, my hair can get quite dry and full of frizz so I am always on the lookout for new hair products that not only adds moisture back into my hair, but also tames any frizziness or flyaways. I've been trying out the Shea Moisture Argan Oil and Almond Milk Smooth and Tame Shampoo and Conditioner in the hope it'll improve my hairs texture and make it that little bit more manageable.

Joan Collins First Base Foundation Review

I am a foundation hoarder. I cannot help it, but I am always on the lookout for a new foundation that will make my imperfect skin look, well, perfect. Whilst a foundation cannot get rid of any of my imperfections, it can do a good job at covering them, making me feel so much more confident. Now, as a foundation hoarder I have many different forms of foundation in my stash. There's liquids, creams, powders and even the cushion kind. My favourite formula is a liquid as I find it blends better into my skin compared to the others.

My all time favourite foundation is the Lancome Teint Idole 24hr Ultra Wear Foundation(isn't that a mouthful?), and nothing seems to compare to it, but unfortunately I have ran out of it recently. I have made it my 'mission' to try and test out new foundations since then, and the first I tried is the Joan Collins First Base Foundation(£25).

The Iluma Intense Brightening Exfoliating Powder | Does it Work?

During this pregnancy my skin has hit a new low thanks thanks to the extra hormones, so I've been into my skincare more than ever, hoping to get it back to it's pre pregnancy state. It's said that during pregnancy you'll get that pregnancy glow, and I can honestly say, there's no such thing. Surely it's just a myth? This so called 'pregnancy glow' was nowhere to be seen with my previous pregnancies, nor this one. My skin seems to look dull, tired, run down and I have had multiple breakouts(though some have thankfully cleared up now).

I've been trying various different products over the last couple of months in order to get my skin looking its very best again, and one of those products is the Iluma Intense Brightening Exfoliating Powder by Image Skincare(£40).

February Beauty Favourites

So, back in January I posted my 2017 favourites within different beauty categories and I vowed to bring back monthly favourites after that, and low and behold, here's my February Beauty Favourites. Hopefully I stick to it this time, eh? Yes, I may be a teeny weeny bit late as February ended nearly two weeks ago, but ah well, at least I did it right?

 For Christmas I received a lot of new beauty products and I was so excited to try them out that I delved into them straightaway. I then found myself using the same products almost daily throughout January and February, and before I knew it, my old favourites were being cast aside for them.

Colourpop Super Shock Shadow Collection

There's one brand that I've surprisingly not talked about much here on the blog, and that is Colourpop. I have tried many different products from them, my favourites being their Liquid Lipsticks and Super Shock Shadows, so it's unsurprising that I've gained quite a collection of them.

Today I'm going to share with you all of the super shock shadows that I currently own. I have 11 in total, two of which are the same shade. I bought my first ever super shock shadow around two years ago now, and the moment I tried it, my obsession escalated very quickly, and I ended up ordering a ton more on my second order.

Four to Try from Anastasia Beverly Hills

Anastasia Beverly Hills(or ABH for short) has slowly but surely become a favourite brand of mine over the last couple of years. It first started with their Illuminators, which they sadly don't stock anymore, and overtime I've purchased numerous products from them, all of which have never failed me. It's very rare that I like every single product I try from one brand, but I like that, although it doesn't particularly help the old bank balance.

Now, as I mentioned the first product I fell in love with from ABH was the Illuminator- the Starlight Illuminator to be precise. I was so gutted when they discontinued it as the formula and pigmentation was spot on, plus the shade was absolutely perfect for my fair skin. It's so difficult to find a highlighter that isn't too overly pink, nor too dark to suit my skintone so it's disappointing for me. However at this point in time I have plenty of it left and I've not hit pan on it just yet. My fingers are crossed that they'll bring another highlighter shade like Starlight out soon. Pray for me, seriously...

Aside from that fact, there are four other products that I really recommend anyone to try from ABH. Whether you're new to the brand or want to try something new from them, I can help you out. Here's a rundown of my four favourites from Anastasia Beverly Hills.
