Winter skincare routine 2017!


Hey lovelies!

I have noticed recently that my skincare routine must be working for my skin as I’m having fewer breakouts and it’s looking much healthier. This makes me very happy indeed as I’ve been struggling with this for quite a while now :). Athough it’s not perfect I feel I’ve got a good base, so why not share it! Sharing is caring you know πŸ˜›


When I wake up, the first thing I like to do is cleanse my face and get rid of any bed grime (wow that sounds gross, but you know what I mean). To do this I put on Body Shop’s Camomile cleansing butter, it’s so lovely, like words can’t even! It’s got a buttery oily kinda thing going on and just glides on, removes impurities and is good for sensitive skin. Win! Then I spray on La Roche-posey Serozinc and wait for that to dry. This product is for oily acne prone skin, which mine can be. I purchased this moisturiser a little while back and I’m actually very pleased with it! It’s got a good thickness to it for the winter months when my skin is dryer, smells divine and leaves my skin feeling great πŸ™‚ and this is Origins Make a difference. After that I throw on Origins GinZing eye cream which does a fair job and doesn’t irritate my eyes. Then that’s me set to put on my make up! Which on a day to day basis takes like 5 mins and I’ve got a separate blog post about that πŸ™‚ Also if I remember I go for a quick spray of the MV organics Rose hydrating mist before I shoot out through door.


Once my feet land on my mat and I’m home, normally the first thing I want to do is remove my make up (providing I’m not ravenous). I do 13 hour shifts though so I know this isn’t the same for everyone. Anyway, when that time in the evening comes when you want to remove your face and chill on the sofa in your comfies, this is my routine. I start with the classic Garner micellar water to remove the majority of my make up then I go back in with Body Shop’s Camomile cleansing butter just to make sure I got it all off. I also use an exfoliating brush just lightly, it also feels lush! I like having a clean face for bed πŸ˜› I normally follow this with my favourite toner Pixi glow tonic on a cotton pad. I then use the Serozinc again and the Origins make a difference moisturiser, Β the eye cream, and a spritz of MV Organics Rose Hydrating Mist. Then that’s me done πŸ™‚ happy days! I can now chill and read for a bit or watch a bit of tv πŸ™‚

I hope you found this helpful if you are looking for some new products to try. Let me know if you liked it πŸ™‚

My 5 Minute Face


Hey you!

So you know those days when you watch one too many Youtube videos, read one too many chapters in a book or blogs and its like oh dear… I have 5 mins to put my face on! Well this is my go-to products for these occasions. I hope you will find helpful πŸ™‚

  • No.7 Essentially Natural FoundationΒ Screen Shot 2016-10-20 at 17.30.29.png

I have this in the shade cool vanillaΒ as I do get quite pale and it matches my skin tone really well. It is great for providing the perfect amount of coverage that is not at all heavy, so it feels like your skin is still breathing (which is always nice). Yet itΒ still evens out my skin colour, any redness I might have is gone and lightly covers any blemishes.

  • Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – Shade 1 & 2

Screen Shot 2016-10-20 at 17.29.43.png

I use the Light (1) shade under my eyes as I unfortunately suffer with quite dark under eye circles. I then use the medium (2) shade for any blemishes that my foundation didn’t quite cover such as around the nose and any spots. Its great stuff, honestly it stays in place and covers anything really well. The only thing is I normally put it on the back of my hand then on where I need it, or on an application sponge rather then use the dabber it comes with. I just think bacteria would be spread around my face else, which is not a nice thought O.o.


  • Rimmel Powder – 004 SandstormScreen Shot 2016-10-20 at 17.31.09.png

This powder is always one I go back to, it keeps me from going too shiny throughout my day and doesn’t look too cakey or anything πŸ˜€ happy days! Plus the best bit is that its like Β£4 or something πŸ˜€


  • Bourjois Blush – 34Β Rose D’or

Screen Shot 2016-10-20 at 17.31.45.pngThis little blush has been worth its weight in gold, it is more of a summer/spring shade but I can still rock it out on a colder day, just more lightly to gave a youthful glow to my cheeks πŸ™‚ It also smells amazing and I am in love with the different shades running through it, bits of gold and pink. Simply beautiful.

  • Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara – Medium BrownScreen Shot 2016-10-20 at 17.35.08.png

This is great for this kind of day when you don’t have much time, power always seems to be something that takes a little bit of time for me when it comes to eyebrows. So when I am in a rush I skip that step and go straight for this, which is super easy to use and sets the hairs in the right direction. I also got a slightly darker shade then my natural eyebrow to make them actually look like they exist πŸ˜€ I have very blonde eyebrows and it would look like I didn’t have any at all else πŸ˜›

  • No.7 Lash Impact Mascara- Black

Screen Shot 2016-10-20 at 17.34.55.pngNow this little beauty has been my go-to mascara ever since I discovered it, maybe 1 and a half years ago now. It very very rarely clumps on me and separates my lash’s really well. It doesn’t add a great deal of length but as mine are pretty long anyway thats not an area I need.



As you can see I put all the links where I spoke about them, so you can check them out if you are interested πŸ™‚ If you have any questions please ask πŸ™‚ Also let me know your routine, I’ve had this one for a little while now and i’m looking to try a couple new things πŸ˜€

Thanks for reading!
