Mask Spotlight: Overnight Sensation Brightening Sleep Mask ➰Thrive Causemetics is an incredible make-up and skincare brand that aims to make a difference in the world. For every product purchased one is donated to help women thrive. Their products and services are delivered to women experiencing cancer, homelessness, or domestic violence by giving to hospitals, organisations and events around the world. All their products are vegan, paraben, sulphate and cruelty-free. ➰The overnight sensation brightening sleep mask is a mask that you apply 2-3 times a week, either on its own or over your moisturiser and wake up with bright exfoliated glowy skin. I used this both as an overnight mask and a 30 minute mask and loved it both ways, as both instances I could feel it working from the start and could see an impressive brightness to my skin after washing it off. I haven’t had many good nights sleep lately yet this has made me look quite fresh and dewy skinned! Just a point to note I have quite dry sensitive skin and this did not cause any irritation for me at all. .

Recently I have fallen in love with vegan and cruelty-free British brand Votary. We've all seen those sleek dark green bottles floating about on the gram. I was lucky enough to be sent a couple of products to try out, and I wanted to give you my first impression of these. 🌿 Super Seed Cleansing Oil and the Super Seed Facial Oil. Both are suitable for dry skin, and perfect for this time of year where cold weather and central heating really takes a toll on our skin. . 🌿The Super Seed Cleansing Oil contains a complex blend of super seeds and essential oils, including parsley, chia, sunflower, grapeseed, apricot kernel, camellia, hemp, pumpkin, pomegranate, linseed, melon, raspberry, blueberry and carrot. Now I'm normally a balm cleansing kind of girl and I'll be honest, I didn't think I'd love this as much as I do. It goes on like silk, and leaves the skin plump and soft after, and not greasy at all. Some kind of sorcery for sure. This has made me fall in love with oil cleansing.😲🙌🏻 🌿The Super Seed Facial Oil contains a blend of 21 different super seed oils, including grapeseed, pumpkin, black seed, linseed, rosehip, raspberry, blueberry, sunflower, strawberry, borage and melon. It is free of any essential oils and has a slight earthy scent. I've been mixing this in with my lala retro whipped cream for THE most perfect intense hydration experience. I wake up with soft, comfortable and supple skin. 🌿These beauties are available to purchase from Space NK

I've been thinking, I've been thinking, why can't I keep my fingers off you, baby. I want you 🍸🐘 🍊Why is this so good? I'll explain. 🔶The C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream is thick balm that somehow fills the thinning skin around my eyes. I've always had dark circles (unfortunately a hereditary thing🙄) but this has actually lightened my under eye area. Not in a mica or make up way. In a potent blend of ingredients kind of way. I've never understood the point of an eye cream till I tried this. . ✴️What's in it? 🍊 Peptides 🍊 Ceramides 🍊 Cucumber extract . 🍊 Plant oils 🍊 Five sources of vitamin c 🧡 When to use: Morning and Night straight after cleanse + toning (before your serum + moisturiser) otherwise as the great CH says it's like putting a bra on over your jacket. The eye cream goes on first, to work its magic. 🔸C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream costs £54 and is available to purchase from Space NK and Cult Beauty in the UK.

This is A-Passioni! A vegan 1.0% retinol containing gorgeous ingredients such as passionfruit, vitamin F, apricot, marula, jojoba oils, kale, winter cherry and xanthophylis. . ❣️Retinol is one of those skincare items (along with sunscreen) that have actually been proven to make a difference to the skin, particularly to acne, wrinkles and sun-damaged skin. It resurfaces the skin, leaving you nourished, brighter and younger looking. 🎈It's a thick cream, almost like C-Tango or Protini. I applied this on dry skin after cleansing, avoiding the eye area, and mixed in with 1 pump of B-Hydra (that came with it) as it was my first time. I let it sit on my skin for a few minutes before moisturising. The reason I waited a few minutes is I wanted to see how this felt on my skin and also what level of moisture I needed after this. It felt exactly how I want retinol to feel. There's that initial "kick" on the skin that tells you this isn't some weak concoction and that this is the good stuff. I'm absolutely & totally hooked. My skin is glowing today - how is that even possible after just one use? . ♥️ So some points to note when using A-Passioni* retinol for the first time. . 🔻 At first, use only once or twice a week till your skin becomes accustomed to it, then increase gradually. 🔻 Can be used morning or night. 🔻 You must use a broad spectrum sunscreen in the daytime as your skin will be more sensitive to the suns rays. (Even when cloudy) 🔻 In the day, either use alone or mix it with a little C-Firma 🔻 In the night, either use alone or mix with a little Framboos. . 🌡 I have decided to stick with A-Passioni as my only retinol for now to see how this improves the texture of my skin. Tonight I will give my skin a break but tomorrow I will be back on it. 📍 A-Passioni costs £62. ❗️All Drunk Elephant products are free of essential oils, silicones and fragrance.

Ode to my beloved face mask. Dear Tama. I dedicate my love to thee... . 🐝You’ve seen me go on about this turmeric and manuka honey mask but why do I love it so much? 🌞Well I have really dry skin that gets irritated very easily. This mask soothes and hydrates at the same time, smells divine, and leaves my skin soft and dewy after. I’ve found myself quite addicted to it, reaching for it every couple of evenings! 🍊Also it doesn’t stain the skin like some homemade varieties. I’ve seen some orange tinted horror stories over the years on the net! This one does NOT stain! . 🥕Most importantly I know how much goodness I am applying to my skin after studying the ingredients! 🍯 Tama contains turmeric, sustainably sourced manuka honey and avocado oil. . 🐝 Tama has major antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits and is aimed at controlling acne, aiding in reversing sun damage, and helps to reduce the signs on premature ageing. . 🦘All of Dr Roebuck's products are formulated without all of the nasties (parabens, sulfates, phthalates, silicones, harmful chemicals, fillers). They are also vegan and cruelty-free!
