Adrienne is probably one of my most favourite bloggers ….ever! ive been following her blog for a good couple of years now since 2013 and it always had the best content, the best photos you can clearly see why she’s built up such a following! If you ever need to know about the latest launch or the best skincare for your skin then she has it all! The Sunday Girl is definitely worth checking out

Again with Beauty Queen UK, ive been following this blog about 2 years now and you can tell how much effort goes into this blog and how much the readers love it! I love the fact there’s everything on Beauty Queen UK from makeup to skincare and even posts on how to help to de-stress.

What can i say about Charlotte other than she is literally the sweetest most kindest person ive ever met. I think we first met at a bloggers event that she had set up but i had read her blog before so it was nice to put a face to a name. Colours and Carousels is a everything blog it got lifestyle, beauty and fashion you can tell what i like about it. My favourite posts have to be her Saturday Shares when she shares her favourite posts from other blogs
 Laura Louise Beauty Blog
lauraloubeauty.blogspot.co.uk
Follow on Bloglovin
Instagram: @LauraLouMakeup
Its always nice to have another makeup artist there to ask questions and find out what other makeup artists like to use and that’s where Laura Lou Beauty comes in. Shes a pro makeup artist and blogs about beauty usually skincare and makeup and the odd hair styling post. I really like her blog because shes so straight talking a spade is a spade if youre looking for a product you can count on her to tell it like it is.
 Last Years Girl

As she lovingly refers to herself as “The Big Sister of the Bloggers” Lis is someone you want to be around constantly she has enough weirdness to keep up with me and it makes me so happy haha
Its always fun when we get together because we can just bounce of each other we clicked really easily i think.
Last Years Girl is again a bit of everything but mostly music as thats what Lis loves to do! i always love finding out about new songs and new bands which i hadnt heard about before of course i do love the odd beauty post as well.

 

Jac and The Box

Jenny is someone i have only recently met but she’s one of these people you can help but like and has quickly become a great friend we have clicked like nobodies business and i think thats simply because we understand each other and we dont take ourselves to seriously.
Jac & The Box is mainly a fashion blog so its not really my forte but its always good to learn a thing or 2 that could end up helping out with makeup one day. I do enjoy the odd beauty post we always laugh at how we both have no idea about the others blog subject.
 Little Blog of Horrors
little-blog-of-horrors.com
Follow on Bloglovin
Instagram: @hellorogue
I love Little Blog of Horrors for all its awesome ideas on what beauty means and what it could mean for you. Ayden is another blogger i have been following for a few years now and every time i have met her at events she’s always been really nice and welcoming one of those people you just want to be friends with.

I really wanted to include Ayden in her post on How she copes with anxiety because that’s something I have a big problem with as well so to see someone actually talking openly about it. it made me feel like I was as alone as I thought I was it totally made me respect her a million times more than I did before.

  • ITS OK TO GET HELP! 
If it gets to the point where your skin is getting you down and affecting your mental health it's ok to go and speak to someone.

A lot of people see skin issues as a cosmetic issue but I'm here to tell you that I see you and hear you. It's ok for you to speak to someone sometimes what's available over the counter just isn't enough to treat some things.

I know a lot of the time the NHS is all about your health and unless it's severe acne you're kind of ignored and in a middle ground but if you explain that whilst you might not have the most severe skin problem they are affecting your mental health.

It's so important to take care of your mental health, it doesn't make you weak or stupid. You take care of your physical health so why should your mental well-being be any different? .

  • (#gifted) I was sent CE Ferulic by @skinceuticals_uki a couple of weeks back and I've been using it religiously since apart from the weird smell I'm loving it! 
Usually I can't use the pure version of L-ascorbic acid because it tends to irritate my skin but by some sort of miracle I can use this! 🙌🏼 As you might be able to tell this product contains 15% L-ascorbic acid, Vitamin E and Ferulic acid. 
I have to admit ferulic acid was completely new to me I knew people who used it but I never really knew what it did. If you were like me, ferulic acid is a antioxidant that helps to protect the skin against oxidative damage much like Vitamin C does. 
When you add ferulic acid and vitamin E to vitamin C it not only helps to stabilise the formula but it also doubles the photoprotection abilities. 
I usually apply this then an SPF 50 sunscreen, I feel like this gives me the best protection. .

  • I don't often talk about my AM routine but if I had to choose one thing that I think makes a big difference it would be the powerhouse combination of sunscreen and vitamin c.

Whilst the sunscreen protects against the UV rays, the vitamin v helps to prevent oxidative damage through out the day. 
Vitamin c doesn't just prevent oxidative damage it also helps to lighten and brighten the skin. Lately I've been using the @skinceuticals_uki CE ferulic acid. I am absolutely loving this combination it's the first L-ascorbic acid product I've use that skin hasn't hated! 😭🙌🏼😱

  • Hyaluronic Acid is probably one of my most favourite ingredients in skincare. 
I feel like a lot of people tend to underestimate how important hydration can be for the skin! It's the difference between looking plump and not.

Hyaluronic acid is really fascinating it can hold 1000 times it's own molecular weight in start. HA occurs naturally in the skin and helps not only with the firm, plumpness of our skin (think of it like a sponge) HA also helps to maintain our skims elasticity and help to regenerate the skins protective barrier. 
HA comes in different forms namingly high and low molecular weight. High molecular weight works on the surface level of the skin and helps to hydrate the skin where as low molecular weight works deeper in the epidermal layers.

While HA occurs naturally in the skin it's often found in many products created either naturally or synthetically. I have to mention one is not better than the other they are molecularly the same natural HA is not better or worse than synthetically made HA.

When looking for products containing HA look for both low and high molecular weights this will give a more rounded. 
Anyone can use Hyaluronic acid as it's not the same kind of acid as a glycolic or lactic. The most sensitive, reactive skin types can really benefit from HA.

There is one caution though if you are living in a dry arid country be careful as HA is hygroscopic it will draw moisture from the air into your skin but when there is no moisture in the air it will draw it from deeper in your skin causing dryness to get worse. 
To combat this I would suggest using HA and while your skin is still "wet" use a moisturiser on top to seal everything in this way the HA has something to draw from. (Credit to @incidecodercom for the image)

  • It's just amazes me the amount of misinformation there is around  natural brands these days.

No matter what a brand says to you, no matter how scientific it sounds, 
NATURAL DOES NOT MEAN BETTER OR SAFER AND SYNTHETIC DOES NOT MEAN TOXIC OR WORSE FOR YOUR SKIN

It really does annoys me when I see brands talking about how natural and how safe their products are. The one that gets me the most is "chemical free" nothing is chemical free because it's impossible even natural products contain combinations of tons of different chemicals.
Chemical is not synonyms with toxic or dangerous. 
As well with the term synthetic just because something is synthetic it doesn't mean it's dangerous or worse than natural, brands just want you to think this so you'll buy their products 
If you take something like zinc for example if you found it in nature and then made it in the lab synthetically when you examine them they will be chemically the same because zinc is zinc no matter how it was created if the zinc that was created synthetically was different then it wouldn't be zinc anymore 
Where brands often say natural skincare is better for sensitive or highly reactive skin this just insnt trust the opposite is often true when you create ingredients synthetically you can edit out any allergens or irritants where as you wouldn't be able do this with natural products because in nature there is always going to be deviations because nothing is the same.

  • *UPDATED SKINCARE ROUTINE* 
I think most of the products in my routine have changed apart from the @stubborncosmetics  Custom Made Moisturiser

Cleanser - @merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm - This is only a sample size but I love it! I love the texture of it which is a big thing for me. It makes a great first cleanse for removing makeup and SPF.

Exfoliator - @drdennisgross.uk  Professional Grade Resurfacing Liquid Peel *gifted* - I've used this a few times now and if I'm honest it's not as strong as I would have expected, don't get me wrong the results are great it really does smooth out the skin beautifully.

Serum - @skinceuticals_uki H.A Intensifier *gifted - This is completely new brand to me. So instead of being a bog standard hyaluronic acid this serum actually helps to amplify the skins natural hyaluronic acid levels which I find fascinating. It contains high levels of HA as well as Proxylane and purple rice extract.

Treatment - Kate Somerville +Retinol Vita C Serum Intense *gifted - Now this is a combination of retinol and vitamin c usually I would apply vitamin c in the morning which I still do but it's nice to get an extra hit of vitamin c. I don't know if it's because I'm used to retinol now but I honestly don't feel any irritation or see any redness from using this.

Moisturiser - @stubborncosmetics
Custom Made Moisturiser *gifted - I have said this many times but I'll say it again, I have so much love for this moisturiser it's so good to find something customised to you rather than just hoping something will work. .
