Recent Additions to My Skincare Routine

Like many of beauty lovers, I’m constantly trying out new lotions and potions in the quest for moisturised skin and as I’m slowly climbing the age stairs of 30s, I’ve started looking for skin care to tackle the fine lines.

I’ve been known in my time to hover over a steaming hot bowl of water, with a dollop of herbal oil in and a towel over my head, to rid my face of any impurities and to moisturise. While I still swear by this, it’s not the easiest of options, particularly if you have a very busy schedule. My long suffering family are used to the bizarre sight of seeing my head in a bowl by now, but there’s no arguing that skin care products are easier solution.

Today, I want to share with you some skin care products that I’ve added to my daily beauty routine few months ago and now I cannot live without them:

TheFaceShop Blanclouding Moisture Cream

The main thing I noticed about this product was that it doesn’t feel sticky – a problem I’ve had with other moisturisers. It’s light on the skin, so not a problem if you like to apply your make up straight after. It’s one of my big bears when your makeup sticks to your moisturiser! It doesn’t contain SPF, which means it’s a good idea to apply sunscreen if you’re exposed to the sun, although it also means you can wear it as a day cream or night cream. It’s reasonably priced and one I’ll be buying again!

 

TheFaceShop Pore Minimizer Controlling Toner with Powder for All Skin Types

I’m not usually one for pore minimizers but was attracted to the packaging of this product. It’s targeted as a toner for those who have combination to oily skin, helping to keep your skin dry if you suffer from oily skin.

You can see all the powder in the bottle, so you have to shake it well before applying it. It has a great smell too, which is something I always look for in skincare. Again, it’s reasonable prices, so if you’re looking for a product to minimise pores, it’s well worth a try.

 

The Face Shop Rice Water Cleansing Foam

A good cleansing foam is a must have in any makeup bag. For me, it’s one of the key pieces in skincare. How can you expect to have clear skin if you don’t rid it of the day’s muck? It also gives you a sparkling clean surface to work from before applying your makeup for the day.

The Rice Water Cleansing Foam is a snip of the price of others I’ve tried, which can only be a positive and makes my skin feel immaculate. Lather it onto your skin twice a day and won’t need any other form of cleanser. This is a must buy.

 

Finally, I’m not a skincare expert, but I know that the ingredients in these products plump your skin and keep it from sagging, which should counter the ageing process. That’s me sold. I’m not at the stage where I want a frozen looking face and for now, I’ll stick to my little pot from the fountain of youth.

Casual wear for an outdoor gathering

Hi everyone!

As you can see, weather is getting better finally. Hence I decided to arrange an outdoor meet up with my friends, so we can enjoy some fresh air.

For this chilled back gathering I decided to wear a white linen top and straight cut blue jeans trousers.

I accessorized them with beige bag and sandals.
