Vichy Idealia Overnight Peeling Review*

Monday, March 27, 2017

It is no secret Vichy is one of my favourite skincare brands. When they released the Idealia Overnight Peeling Treatment I was extremely interested to see if it would work for me. The treatment is to be used after cleansing and to be applied using a cotton pad. It claims to restore lost energy and help your skin have a new lease of life. I was intrigued to see how it would work with my skin has I have used the PIXI Glow Tonic and found it irritated my skin and also tried one from Nivea which didn't do anything for my skin.

Shine so they can see you from the moon right? Every time I wear makeup I always wear highlighter. Even if I wear the most natural makeup I pop some highlighter on just to add that little sparkle.

I find you can get just as good highlighters in the drugstore as you can in the highend so I have some in this post for every budget.

Updated Skincare Routine for Oily/Combination Skin

Monday, February 13, 2017

Skincare Products for Combination Skin, Skin routine for oily skin

Over the past 6 months my skin has slightly changed. It used to be just oily but now it ranges between oily-combination. I have oily skin on the outer corners of my nose and my chin then I sometimes get small dry patches on my cheeks. My forehead is normal. I have recently got into a routine that works perfectly. It helps to reduce shine and it helps prevent dry patches.

Milani Makeup Reviews & Swatches*

Milani Makeup Review and swatches

Milani is a brand I love, I have used quite a few of their products and always fallen in love with them.

Hylamide Pore Control Serum Review*

Wednesday, February 08, 2017
Hylamide Pore Control Serum Review, Serum for oily skin

I have been wanting a serum that would work with my oily skin and my pores around my nose. Hylamide is fast becoming one of my favourite skincare brands. They have so many ranges to suit all skin types. The Hylamide Pore Control Serum has definitely made its way into my skincare routine and I actually notice a difference when using it. I find with alot of skincare products they can feel nice on my skin but I barely notice a difference to my skin. 

The Hylamide Pore Control Serum is designed to reduce oil whilst still helping your skin to retain water and hydration. It also helps to minimize pores and reduce congestion. The serum itself is milky white in colour and it doesn't have that greasy feel like most serums. I have been applying this every night before bed for two months now and my skin looks so much better since using it. I love how quickly this sinks into my skin and it dries to a matte finish. When I apply it to my skin it has a cooling feeling which makes my skin feel refreshed. I have sensitive skin on my cheeks and this hasn't irritated them at all.

Usually when I wake up in a morning my skin is slightly shiny but after a few weeks of using the serum I was noticing each morning my skin wasn't shiny at all. This is by far the best serum at controlling my oil. My pores look healthier and my skin just has an overall brighter complexion. 

I tend to use a mattifying serum in the evening and a hydrating one in the morning to help keep my skin balanced. I cannot recommend this serum enough for anyone who suffers with oily skin or large pores. If you are after a quick drying serum that actually makes a difference to your skin the Hylamide Pore Control Serum is the one for you.

It retails for £23.00 for 30ml. As I said I have been using this serum every night for two months and I still haven't finished the bottle. It is 100% worth the price. You can buy the Hylamide Pore Control Serum from the Deciem Website or on many other online retailers.

*This post includes PR Samples, NOTE all views are my own and my honest opinion. If I don't like a product or have any negative views I will put them on my blog.

MAC Pro Longwear Foundation vs MAC Waterproof Pro Longwear Foundation

Wednesday, January 25, 2017

It's the battle of the MAC Pro Longwear Foundations. I have tried nearly every MAC Foundation apart from the Mineralize Foundation. My skin is oily around my nose and chin then normal everywhere else. I sometimes get small dry patches on my cheeks. MAC released the Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation so I thought I would compare this against the original Pro Long Wear Foundation.
