Battle of the Micellar Waters!👑

I expect a micellar water to be an all-rounder and this means that it be suitable to remove face makeup and gentle enough to use around the eyes to effectively remove eye makeup without me needing to go over the same areas so many times that it makes my eyes sore.  The solution also needs to be sensitive enough that it doesn’t make my eyes sore and/or irritated. I wouldn’t say that I have extra sensitive eyes but if a micellar water burns my eyes into an oblivion burn then it isn’t for me.  It is also important for me to mention here that I do not wear waterproof mascara or gel eyeliner.

RMS Beauty Living Luminizer

Colour: Translucent Pearl writes:

An illuminating highlighter with a translucent pearl hue to create healthy, sheer glowing skin by enhancing your own natural beauty, without being sticky, greasy or glittery.

I paid about €37 for my RMS Living Luminizer which I ordered from Naturismo. I wanted a cream highlighter that was not going to make me look like a disco ball from the 80’s and to just be a subtle hint of highlight on my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose and to apply it to the bow of my lips to make them look fuller.

Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging Hyaluronic Acid Booster

It seems that as soon as I hit 40, my whole face decided to rebel. One of the most noticeable issues I had were the deep lines that had formed between my eyebrows aka glabellar rhytides. I guess I do frown a lot and this was the karma from frowning. Either way, I had to do something about it rather than have botox injections. I tried several anti-ageing serums that did nothing for them and I was beginning to believe that I would never find a topical skin remedy that was going to smooth them out. I was not looking for a huge miracle; just a tiny one 😄 Continue reading “Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging Hyaluronic Acid Booster”

Manuka Doctor ApiNourish Hydrating Facial Cleanser

Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse-Off Formula

Most of the exfoliators on the market have about 3 grains to scrub your face with and for the longest time I have searched for an exfoliator that will really polish my skin and give my pores a good clean out. I have a red birthmark all around the base of my nose where the skin in this area is very prone to flaking and under makeup this just looks terrible so I needed a scrub that was going to be effective enough to gently polish these away.
