Happy Friday everyone - this week’s #friyayfaves by @the__glow__girl includes one of my new favourite moisturisers - Japanfusion supreme cream from @beautypie.
I’m not going to do a full review just yet as I haven’t been using it long enough but it’s giving me an extra hit of moisture and feels super silky on my skin 👌🏻. Also loving @fentybeauty primer @glossier boy brow and @kkwbeauty lipstick. What are your faves right now?

Can’t believe it’s Friday already. Defeated by a bad cold, the last two days seemed like eternity 🤧 Can’t wait til the long weekend to start🙌🏻Happy Thanksgiving Babes!!💖🦃How are you celebrating?
Ok I had to enter @the__glow__girl’s #friyayfaves a few hours early cos I’m excited by her 🔥 prizes this week!! Anyone else spend their evenings sorting through make-up and skincare? Tonight I’ll be trying to make my baskets look less like this mess... although it is a pretty mess (if I do say so myself). Spot any faves in there? 💕
I came to realisation that sometimes self love is not giving f*$ , wether it is unfinished house work, bad skin day or unkind people, just breathe and let that shit go! Those things and people are unimportant and not worthy stressing over.
So here is me not giving f's and letting that shit go while indulging in me time 🛋🛀🧘🏼♀️💆♀️
.Happy Friday Insta Friends! 😊 .
Here are few things that I've been enjoying lately if you care enough to read 😋 @malayaorganics eye serum has been love from a first use, I've been using it religiously every day and night and my under eyes loves this lightweight yet super hydrating and nourishing serum. It really leaves my skin well hydrated, firmer plump and does not cause millia! Forever favourite😍 @filorga_uk Oxygen-glow mask is a quick 10 min pick me up mask, it transforms dull skin into plump glowy healthy looking. I love to use it as express facial before an event or evening out. 💎 @soleil_toujours after sun rescue and repair brightening serum could not come into my life in better time, I have some pigmentation after summer that I'm trying to diminish so I am very hopeful for a great results. I love the consistency and how it absorbs beautifully, perfect AM serum. 🌞 @iconic.london lip plumping gloss has been my go to lately, I love the high shine without stickiness 😍
Time for #FriyayFaves (by @the_glow_girl) again and today there are new products from one of my favorite brands 𝗕𝗘𝗟𝗟𝗔 𝗔𝗨𝗥𝗔 𝗦𝗞𝗜𝗡
Bella Aura is one of those brands which makes you fall in love immediately. From very stylish sleek unique black packaging, to pleasant tactile sensations, scents and textures. These are not the products that give an immediate result, but they all have a cumulative effect and really work. I have already reviewed the creams for the eyes and face, as well as face cleanser and body serum, which I was very impressed with, now it's time to try other serums and creams from the range. Stay tuned, I will gradually write reviews on each of them. Meanwhile I will share reviews from my friends who are already in love with these products in my stories.
Happy Friday guys ♥️
*PR but it doesn’t influence my opinions.
Give me a word for - more than obsessed ??? .
I know #friyayfaves 😋 . These were the perfect addition to my #makeupcollection , they literally go everywhere I go , immediately boosts up my confidence , so subtle that you cannot go wrong . I have so many other reasons to love @lilahbeauty what’s yours !!!
🍁🌿🌺Bellflower Azulene Daily calming serum🌺🌿🍁
A soothing and hydrating serum for daily use. I sometimes even apply two layers and that's it when I'm really tired. For what i need, it's really moisturizing, but most of the time, i lock it in with my face cream.
It's a very lightweight serum and if you don't have major problems with your skin, you might not notice anything different. It's good for maintenance.
But this is good if your skin is irritated and you want to calm things down before it gets worse, if you want to minimize the redness, improve skin texture and hydrate it.
Among the goodie ingredients are Guaiazulene 300ppm, niacinamide, adenosine, herb complex, honey complex, hyaluronic acid, oligopeptide and centella asiatica extract.
I love this serum and I've been using it for 2 or 3 months now. You get a lot of product (50ml in a sleek matte glass bottle). A little goes a looong way. And i do mean a loooooong way! 😂
Do you love or hate it when a product seems to last forever?
Just gave my hair a good wash today so I figured I would do a #SelfcareSunday post about these hair care faves items. I'm missing a hair mask cause I just ran out of one. Any recommendations?
PS. I did a story on some of these earlier today if you want to check it out <3
🍌 @briogeo Banana+Coconut Nourishing
- 🥥 Shampoo*
- 🥥 Conditioner*
Summer may be over but that doesn't stop me from enjoying the sweet, tropical scent from these two. The combo adds a bit of weight and volume to my hair and I also noticed my usual-post shower frizz is more manageable
🌿 @aromatica_official Rosemary Scalp Scrub* .🍃 @lador_kr Tea Tree Scalp Clinic Hair Pack
Itchy/ Flaky scalp is an ongoing struggle for me for years, luckily I found these two to help out with scalp care. They give my roots a great cleanse and feel so refreshing and cooling. .
🌈 @randco High Dive Moisture + Shine crême*
⭐️ @natura.usa Pataua Restorative hair oil*
🌹 @miseenscenekorea Perfect serum - Rose
Love all these especially the High Dive to give my dull hair the extra softness and a boost of natural shine. They all smell amazing and help smooth damaged ends and tame frizzy hair
—- @amika Phantom Hydrating dry shampoo foam*
I searched for so long for the right one and this is it. I like that the mousse doesn't feel grimy or sticky, it gives a slight lift to my roots and doesn't show up on my dark hair. The baby powder scent also smells amazing and not too strong.
*contains PR gifted products.
1. Apply the concealer on the lid
2. Shade 1 on the crease
3. Shade 2 on the crease and lid
4. Cut crease using concealer
5. Shade 3 on the concealer
6. Shade 2 on the lower lashline
7. Shade 4 as a liner ( for the technique by which i apply it check my previous pictorial )
8. Shade 5 on the inner corner and white nude pencil on waterline.
9. Apply the lashes.

🐘 Today’s #friyayfaves courtesy of @the__glow__girl .... and of course #drunkelephant !!!!
I am always saying how #bhydra is so underrated ... BUT I don’t hear much chatter about these @drunkelephant bars at all .... I can’t rave about them enough!!! I’ve been using the #pekeebar after #beste most nights as a second cleanse ... I ran out of #Slaai and haven’t been in a position to repurchase ... I am hooked!!!! They leave my skin soft ... clean ... never dry ... never tight!! I don’t use the juju bar as often .... but I definitely use it a couple of times a week ... and I do love it!!! If you are on the fence ... and haven’t yet picked these beauties up ... I encourage you to give the travel duo set a try ... for $16 US they last longer than you might think ... they are definitely Friday fav worthy!!
Check out this cute Drunk Elephant soap dish .... as a #canadian we can’t purchase direct from the site so my friend Febe @drunkelephant.life sent me one for my birthday ... it’s perfect!!!
Thank you all for being my forever Friday favs ... you make the journey so FUN!!!!

You know it's a good product when your mom starts using it with you 🖤
Hey! Here are my #friyayfaves (@the__glow__girl) on a Saturday!!
AD/ I've received and tried those @viicodebeauty mask and I'm completely surprised by how effective they are!! They're meant to refresh, depuff and and combat fine lines around the eyes. But because I move a lot during sleeping I was afraid to lost them but nope! They were still at the same place the next morning. I've used them during 3 nights, and if you swipe you can see the last night before/after. I can only recommand to look for other pic on Instagram cause mine are not really good but the results are amazing!! It was so incredible the first night I've use them but I forgot to take pics..
I love the fact that those ones stay in place, you really see the difference the morning you take them off!
Do you use night mask? Which one do you recommend?
Je partage avec vous un petit secret.. J'ai reçu dernièrement ces masques yeux, et ils sont magiques !! Je vous ai mis des photos avant/apres mais desole de la qualité, je ne sais pas me prendre en photo !! Je les ai utilisé 3j d'affilés et le résultat est bluffant ! Bon vous allez me dire que ca dure pas dans le temps, et c'est vrai, mais arriver au boulot le matin avec un regard défroissé ben moi, ca egaye ma journée !! Et puis rien n'empêche de les porter quelques heures avant une soirée histoire d'arriver fraîche ! Le résultat est visible jusqu'au soir et ca c'est top !
Et vous, vous utilisez des masques pour les yeux ?

Which clay mask is your favourite?
So i recently added this Elizavecca milky piggy carbonated bubble clay mask in my skin care routine. I am provided with this product from @elizavecca_ ( it is hit item of Elizaveca ). And trust me it is actually worth the hype.
I am seriously loving the results and the packaging of this Elizavecca milky piggy carbonated bubble clay mask, which is very compact and travel friendly which means it is easy to carry. This is one of best clay mask for sure. I never tried any bubble mask before so i was so excited to use this one.
And after using it i can say that It makes your skin bright, clean and oily free instantly right after first use.
The texture of this mask is like mud, thick but very smooth, can be easily spreaded all over the face. It smells so good. Little goes a long way, you dont have to apply alot of clay mask to get the appropiate amount of leather to massage your whole face, little amount of it makes alot of leather. It helps in cleaning pores and removing sebum.
Further more, soon i will post a video on how to use this clay mask. And a detailed video on packaging too 😁
Bonus #friyayfaves I've been really enjoying this @manyofactory_official galactomy niacin essence. .
First off, this essence is light weight and absorbs very quickly into the skin. It's a whitening essence that brightens up the skin and has given me a noticable glow. .
After reviewing the ingredients list this essence is an all around must have that brightens, hydrates, improves barrier function and acts as an anti aging powerhouse. .
I did receive this in collaboration with @08liter and @manyofactory_official for free in exchange for an honest review
Happy #friyayfaves lovelies ✨ Since it’s been two weeks since I last wore foundation and it’s also #foundationfriday I dedicate this post to my favorite foundations 💗
Do you wear foundation everyday? •
This @pauladorfcosmetics Perfect Primer is lightly hydrating and imparts just a hint of luminosity under my @younique_corporate BB Cream. This BB Flawless Cream is more foundation than a traditional BB cream. It gives light to medium coverage and is buildable. I absolutely love the coverage of it, especially the dewy finish! I’ve been hunting for a foundation to replace it and have not found anything close (even the new dewy foundation from @anastasiabeverlyhills doesn’t compare!). Unfortunately I cannot find the Paula Dorf primer any more, so I’ll be using a new one I’ve fallen in love with. Post on it soon!
Welcome back to our #lifestylegoals guru, Jo @the__glow__girl’s #friyayfaves !
Once again I’m highlighting my fairy godmother brand @instanatural_beauty who sent me this INCREDIBLE gift of my giveaway beauty basics plus some of their new products.
Honestly, I feel so privileged to be able to key y’all into this clean beauty brand who is cruelty free and formulated without parabens, synthetic dyes, petroleum and the usual nasties you really don’t want sinking into your skin. And personally one of the most important bits is that they’re super affordable because quality skincare is for EVERYONE.
You know about their Vitamin C, retinol and rose makeup remover balm (see yesterday’s post for info) so today I’ll tell you a bit more about their new products.
First up is their Dark Spot Corrector which is formulated with what I imagine is super classified NASA stem cell technology, glycolic acid and niacinamide along with aloe, ginger root, witch hazel, green tea leaf-which as you know are soothing and healing.
I also received their anti aging collagen serum with hyaluronic acid and peptide complex-remember those are skin plumping amino acids that bind together to stimulate collagen production.
And they’ve kindly included Crepe Skin Firming cream with caffeine-really excited about this because I’m sagging and flapping over here and my skin needs to get snatched and act right for a change!
I do urge you to head on over to @instanatural_beauty and read their story and commitment to clean, safe, affordable skincare. This brand was the first that I turned to when I decided to get serious about my skincare so I honestly believe in them and their products. *If you haven’t entered my giveaway, I wish you would and post to your stories for 5 extra entries! Tag ya friends!
Have a wonderful weekend all 🧖🏽♀️

𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗱𝗮𝘆 𝗙𝗮𝘃𝗼𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗲𝘀! ☀️ Joining #friyayfaves today started by @the__glow__girl. My favorites this week are brought to you by@ernolaszlonyc. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is the brightening beginnings set. Featuring the antioxidant complex for eyes, white marble dual phase vitamin c peel and the pore refining detox double cleanse. Let me first start off by telling you that these products are so luxurious. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I owe 50% of my beauty to my mother and the other 50% to Erno Laszlo.” – Audrey Hepburn ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Erno Laszlo has been creating skincare since the 1920's. Famous people in history used his skincare like Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Onassis. So you know it's good when these famous women were using his products. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was so excited for this skincare set. The pore refining detox double cleanse has the most interesting texture. The first cleanser of its kind, with the unique new bubble double cleanse. Encapsulated detoxifying cleansing oil beads work once released with the clear jelly-like liquid that emulsifies on the skin. It doesn't have much of a scent which I really appreciate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The white marble dual phase vitamin c peel is so amazing on the skin. This two step system comes with the peel and the activator. The texture of the peel is like a balm and you apply it over the skin and massage it for a few minutes then apply the activator over the face and massage on the face over the peel. Once rinsed off this leaves the skin so smooth I was so blown away the first time I tried this. It contains lactic acid which is really going to exfoliate the skin nicely. I was definitely impressed with this two step system it's amazing. The last product I tried was the antioxidant complex for the eyes. This eye gel has again like the cleanser the most unique texture in it I've ever seen. It's so cooling under the eyes and leaves the under eye area feeling nice and tight. 🤗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #LaszloIcon#gifted#ernolaszlo#sephora#beautyreview#beautycommunity#skincaredaily#skincarecommunity#skincareproducts#skincaredaily

This weeks #fridayfavorites is dedicated to my newfound love... #indeedlabs Bakuchiol Reface Pads.
Bakuchiol products have been popping up a lot over the last few months. Bakuchiol is said to give retinol type results without the harsh side effects. A great alternative for anyone with sensitive skin. It’s a natural product, and helps with pigmentation, fine lines, skin elasticity and has antioxidant & antimicrobial properties.
My skin doesn’t tolerate retinol well at all. I researched a ton about Bakuchiol and have now tried two products that use it. One didn’t work well with my skin, but I’ve had much better luck with this one. It’s photostable, so I can use it morning or evening. Super gentle, never irritates my skin. It has helped smooth out my complexion tremendously. I’ve been using this for about 5 weeks now. I will continue to use and hope it helps with pigmentation I have on my cheeks and chin.
"Sharing my #FriYayFaves@the__glow__girl !!!" 🍂🍁🌦️🍄
На этой недели мы с мужем ездили за грибами!!!💕 Вам не передать словами, как я обожаю собирать грибы!!!😌❤️ Это занятие наполняет меня энергией, позитивом, я чувствую радость и счастье, получаю огромное удовольствие и просто кайфую!!!!😌❤️🙏😁
С утра начался дождь, но нас это не остановило!!!🌧️😁 Мы купили дождевики, чтобы не промокнуть и поехали в лес! Пока мы доехали, дождь закончился и вышло солнышко!!!🌞 В лесу настолько был свежий и чистый воздух, что даже немного кружилась голова!!!🥴 Мы насобирали грибов, на любовались природой, я конечно же фотографировала каждый найденный гриб, мох, и просто лес!!!😅😆📸 Наш самый большой улов это - 14кг груздьев(4-6 фото)!!!😁 Белых грибов к сожалению нашли только три штуки, зато каких красивых(первое фото!!!)!!!
Очень надеюсь, что ещё будет теплая погода и мы сможем снова выбраться на охоту за грибами!!!🌞😏
А Вы любите собирать грибы?😉 #forest#mushrooms#mushroom#autumn#october#moss#porcini#mushroompickers#happiness#pleasure #joy#nature

TGIF! As you know, we ❤️ cucumbers for all of their health benefits.
Not only is washing with cucumber water good for your skin (Vitamin B-5 helps cool down any irritations or inflammations), drinking it will supply you with antioxidants and Vitamin C, which your body can really use after a tough week.
Simply wash and cut into slices, and leave infused with water for 1-2 hours room temp or 3-4 hours in the fridge, and enjoy! Just don't leave them in for too long for flavor.
Who's going to give it a try tonight/this weekend?
Repurposed & Repackaged
This cleanser didn't wow me as a face wash but I do quite like it as a bodywash. Bodywashes don't typically have a low pH and I want my skincare to include all my skin not just my face so this works! It lathers nicely and rinses clean and of course the COSRX Low-pH Good Morning Cleanser has a low pH.
I love amber glass bottles (my #friyayfaves ) so I purchase items in bulk and then repackage. It's not only easier to dispense with the pump but it allows for a more uniform look across various products/brands.
Do you get OCD about organizing or arranging your products? Would you consider repackaging for a consistent look or not worth the time?
today was hair-washing day, and i also did my eyebrows so i’m feeling particularly well-groomed and productive right now 😅
nothing fancy, just tonight’s skincare routine (a #friyayfaves with @the__glow__girl)
1️⃣ @deciem@theordinary’s glycolic acid 7% toner, just reintroduced tonight for the first time since restarting differin
2️⃣ @deciem@theordinary‘s hyaluronic acid 2%, lovely as always
3️⃣ @differinus my skin’s stopped peeling and is now loving life
4️⃣ @theinkeylist rosehip seed oil, not as enjoyable to use as the ordinary’s one, is thicker, smells different and seems to stain my skin. either the refining or pressing processes are different, or it’s been mixed with something. my nose smells something earthy similar to turmeric but i’m not sure. i’m yellow enough as it is so the staining doesn’t look too stark
4️⃣ @deciem@theordinary’s nmf + ha, just a lightweight and boring moisturiser, the baseline and standard for all moisturisers
5️⃣ @theinkeylist polyglutamic acid, i don’t know how much benefit i’m getting from the polyglutamic acid, but because of the high silicone content in this, i use it as a lightweight sleep mask during night and a primer during the day, always after my moisturiser
6️⃣ primark.beauty x @alexsteinherr sleep spa every night eye mask, again another silicone mask, it has supposedly moisturising ingredients but i don’t know how much benefit i’m getting from them. i only use silicone masks as final steps in my skincare to reduce any tewl or evaporation of oils/moisturisers. if you struggle with milia, i would avoid this .

Hoje venho falar-vos de um creme de rosto com factor de protecção 50 que eu adoro! 💙 É o Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF50 da @paulaschoice. Foi uma das minhas prendas de aniversário por isso só o estou a usar há duas semanas. Mas não precisei de muitos dias para saber que gostava dele. Foi o único, até agora, que não me fez borbulhas no rosto! Descobri, recentemente, que não posso usar nada no rosto que contenha óxido de zinco porque me provoca imensas borbulhas. E infelizmente, muitos dos protectores solares à venda no mercado, são formulados com isso mesmo 😣 Mas este não! E não só não tem zinco como tem uma consistência suuuuper leve! E não deixa o rosto branco (o que também é raro num protector solar) ☺️ É impossível não recomendar!
~ #FriYayFaves (@the__glow__girl)
Tonight’s post is about sunscreen! You might not believe it but I only started using spf on my face on a daily basis earlier this year. Before that I would only use it when tanning at the beach. But since I started using it I’ve struggled to find a product that doesn’t break me out terribly 😣 I think I’ve tried around 6 of them before I found this one from @paulaschoice. It’s the Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF50 and I love it! 💙 I’ve only been using it for 2 weeks but I’m already a fan! Because it’s a chemical sunscreen and it isn’t formulated with zinc oxide it is safe for me to use (I found out recently that any product with zinc in it will trigger my acne so I have to stay away from that ingredient). It’s also suuuper lightweight and it doesn’t leave a white cast. I’m so happy I finally found a sunscreen that I like and works for me! Highly recommend it! ☺️

Everybody should have a few.
Sounds Easy right? 🤷🏻♀️
I’ll share our story...
My Lil is a Seahawks fan, she had a goal to attend her first NFL game at the home stadium of CenturyLink.
She was focused to get seats in the “Hawks nest”
She created a plan ... “Mom , I’ll need to sell x amount of slime and do x amount of parties to make the money I need to buy the tickets.
P.S. I made a deal that I’d match her half if she came up with half. 😊
Off she went with plan in hand, in matter of a few months she sold a whole bunch of slime , we secured 2 events and before she knew it she had more than enough!
For her hard work she ended up attending a special day with @blitztheseahawk
Instead of “hawks nest” seats we sat near sideline seats literally watching the game just behind the @seahawks bench. .
The point is...
She was 9
If she can do it, so can you 👊
Try this... ~Write down your top 2 priority goals. ~ Reflect on the time it will take you to do it. Make The Time!!
~ Be productive in using the time , we all know “stuff” happens give your priorities the time.
You too shall see results!
Her next game is next month AGAIN. Lucky Kiddo!! Happy Blue Friday 💚💙 #gohawks 🏈
It’s a Seahawks thang 😉
Happy #FriYayFaves by @the__glow__girl! 😍💕 And what a happy Friday it was! 😍 My bestie @chirufus is here, we went to IKEA and I could finally purchase a vanity. And then, oh my.. I got lucky again at TK Maxx! 😱
They had one #evelom Age Defying Smoothing Treatment! Usually it’s up to 140€ - for 40€. 😱
Of course I immediately had to have it! 😍
We also found quite the selection of beautiful scented candles but seeing another Eve Lom bargain was my absolute highlight.
They also had some First Aid Beauty there and I got two Facial Radiance Intensive Peels. 😍
Now I am overwhelmed and sitting exhausted in front of my new vanity and can‘t wait to sleep in a bit. 🙈
What was your most recent bargain? Or something you wanted for the longest time and finally could get your hands on? 😍
ad because I tag and mention brands, all purchased by myself

I love this photo submitted by our friend, Shannon over at @swe.farms. Our autumn wreath looks gorgeous on her front door!! It features faux hydrangeas and a custom monogram initial. I have it linked to purchase for anyone that wants one of their own! For all of my AZ friends, check out her page, they sell fresh eggs and goodies on their family farm in Gilbert 🧡
#friyayfaves (from @the__glow__girl) well if you know me you know that I’m a balm dot com obsessive fan 😝 @glossier
Thought my favorite was coconut at first. Then mango came out and I change my mind. Finally berry came out and I change my mind again 😂
What about you ? Which one is your favorite ?
Finally, it's time to take part in #friyayfaves and share with you my tiny obsession. Actually, it's not that tiny. Do you have any favourite products this week? ✨I'm obsessed with new @maccosmetics and @ponysmakeup collaboration. I ended up buying two matte lip mousses in shades Cordon Bleu and Love is Blind. Honestly, I want to buy two more - Moot Point and Off The Record. I wanted to get eyeshadow palette but it got sold out quicker than I was expecting. ✨Another obsession of mine is jewellery. I haven't bought myself any jewellery for over 5 years because I didn't need it, not to mention that I didn't know Swarovski has a shop in my city. Funny enough, I went to this shop only because I saw Hotel Del Luna and I went to buy one ring but ended up with a tiny collection of jewellery.
I didn't post yesterday because I had a couple of bad days and the Mac lip mousses are nothing else than a gift for myself. I do not tell my friends what I do for a living/online because lately when I told about my previous jobs I found people treating me really bad because of my experience which I got abroad and at huge European companies. Anyone had similar experience?
Happy #friyayfaves loves💛! As you all know, it is my favourite day of the week, courtesy of @the__glow__girl . I will keep this one short and sweet for you - these are my current #fallfaves at the moment. I’m always wanting to keep it as simple, fresh, glowy, and natural as possible.
What are your weekend plans! And for all my fellow Canadians, how are your spending your thanksgiving long weekend🙌🏻?
“skinCARE not skinATTACK” - @cystic_royalty
For this week’s installment of #friyayfaves I’m featuring two skin barrier repairing icons from badass women owned indie skincare brands.
🌿✨🌝 @stratiaskin Liquid Gold & @bejbiskin After Acid Serum*✨
The purpose of these products is to hug and heal the skin; to help restore it from dryness and/or irritation from weather, over exfoliation, etc. These aren’t products I necessarily use daily, I see them more as @little_crusty secret sneak attack potion of skin restorative goodness.
Nourishing (non-fragrant) plant oils help to soothe/soften/hydrate
Ceramides (the building blocks of our skin) •
Niacinamide, a powerhouse multi-purpose antioxidant which battles hyperpigmentation and can help increase tolerance of active ingredients!
You could totally cocktail multiple facial oils, boosters, and moisrutizers togeher in a routine to get all of these juicy & curative benefits, or you can just slap two pumps of one of these immaculately formulated serums onto your skin and get on with your life whilst reaping the benefits of soothed, skin. •
p.s. I’m proud of my newest pictures y’all omg 🥴😌💓✨
*kindly gifted by brand
I haven't talked much about makeup here😅 because I only use makeup for certain occassion like wedding, party and beauty events. I use concealer and liptint for daily basis.
Here are some products I'm currently using:
💄𝗟𝗼𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗹 𝗜𝗻𝗳𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗯𝗹𝗲 𝗣𝗿𝗼 𝗠𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲 𝗙𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻
my HG drugstore foundation!! it has matte finish, medium to full coverage, waterproof, excellent oil control, there's no need to touch up all day. it feels to heavy, thus not suitable for daily use. the finish is too powdery, not suitable for dry skin. if you have some dry patches, it doesn't look too good
💄𝗟𝗼𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗹 𝗜𝗻𝗳𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗯𝗹𝗲 𝟮𝟰𝗵 𝗙𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗵 𝗪𝗲𝗮𝗿 𝗙𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻*
it is said to be an improved formula of pro matte. The texture is more liquid-y and doesn't set as fast as pro matte. It has medium coverage, dries down to satin finish, doesn't oxidize. It's very light, suitable for daily use. Sadly, it settles into my smile lines and creasing :(
💄𝗟𝗼𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗹 𝗧𝗿𝘂𝗲 𝗠𝗮𝘁𝗰𝗵 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝗰𝗲𝗮𝗹𝗲𝗿*
the alcohol scent is too strong😰 It has light to medium coverage, precise applicator. Feels really light on skin, liquid-y texture, easy to blend, doesn't crease
💄 #Loreal 𝗜𝗻𝗳𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗯𝗹𝗲 𝗙𝘂𝗹𝗹 𝗪𝗲𝗮𝗿 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝗰𝗲𝗮𝗹𝗲𝗿*
the latest concealer from loreal, the hype is real for this one! It has huge doe foot applicator, bigger than any concealer I've ever tried. full coverage, does a great job covering dark circles and blemishes👍 the texture is not as runny as true match, doesn't crease
💄 #Langsre 𝗩𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝗕𝗲𝗿𝗿𝘆 𝗗𝘂𝗮𝗹 𝗕𝗕 𝗖𝘂𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗦𝗣𝗙 𝟱𝟬+/𝗣𝗔+++*
The packaging is rose gold so shining, shimmering, splendid💖💖 The inner cushion has different part for complexion and for highlights/glow. It has sweet berry scent and super moisturizing formula. Lightweight and has dewy finish. Doesn't make my skin look grey-ish👍
💄 #maggieglow 𝗔𝗰𝗻𝗲 𝗟𝗼𝗼𝘀𝗲 𝗣𝗼𝘄𝗱𝗲𝗿**
This powder has 2 shades, I choose beige (pink undertone), tho it is still a bit too light. It has big case and big sponge as well. the powder is hard to get out of the holes. Good oil control
What's your current favorites makeup? 😊😊

***𝗧𝗛𝗔𝗧 𝗜𝗡 𝗪𝗛𝗜𝗖𝗛 𝗜 𝗧𝗔𝗟𝗞 𝗔𝗕𝗢𝗨𝗧 𝗕𝗘𝗜𝗡𝗚 𝗗𝗥𝗨𝗡𝗞 𝗡𝗢𝗪 𝗙𝗢𝗥 𝟲 𝗺𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗵𝘀 *** ... oh and my contribution to #friyayfaves with @the__glow__girl ...
I’ve posted sporadically on my feed, but listen this is serious okay? ..
Have you seen my transformation pic? Am I the finished product, aww hell no. Am I in a place where my confidence and appreciation for my bare skin- not to mention scarring has minimised significantly? Yep- drinking the Kool- Aid from now on. Here’s to looking at you kid, I’m drunk in love( and gratitude- cos if you’ve suffered with acne for no rhyme or reason-)you’ll know- as for pic 2. Connect the dots. Or go clockwise- pics taken 6 months apart. I’m 40, no fillers, no botox, no filter. ..
I can’t find my Shaba and my B - hydra. But using these ( I’ve not tried the Slaai) for a 6 month period almost exclusively had helped to a large degree. Also don’t drink or smoke or do drugs - it is plain stupid. (No skincare can help you then. )
Also missing is another bottle of Sukari. And BTS! It’s not cute. There were some GWP’s but all have been purchased by me. So now I’m piss broke, but have glowy skin. Also I’ve got an elephantine drinking habit. Plus a blog post is coming up. ..
Top tips for brown/ black or any lads ( cos we is all colours of the rainbow 🌈 and we is cute whomever we choose to love) ..
If you see a spot, find a skincare system that’s simple, pared back, and easy to incorporate... also one you can afford. But hey a girl cannot have everything - CLEARLY 😫😫😫😫🌈🌈💖💙🧡 also the state of mind is so clearly linked to our body image . How apropos as today is World Mental Health Day? ..
