Top 5 Beauty Bits You Have To Try

Hey Beauties!

It’s always hard to narrow down your favourite products but i think i got a good mix of things to show you, these are my Top 5 Beauty Bits You Have To Try. I tried to go for things across the range from hair, makeup, skin care.

Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation

The Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation (£28) was one of those products i had seen a lot of people using, i had first saw it being used in a Pixiwoo video and thought it looked beautiful! So I simply had to have it. Invisible Radiance Foundation comes with a little spatula when you open it up which is good because usually I don’t like foundations without pumps. What makes this foundation even more amazing is that it comes with a concealer in the lid that is the same shade as the foundation. I don’t know about you but for me i always found it hard to get a good foundation that matched up with a concealer. Invisible Radiance Foundation is a sheer coverage foundation that is buildable to medium, the concealer is a higher coverage that will take care of any problem areas.

label.men grooming cream

label. men Grooming Cream (£10.50) is a lightweight, versatile cream that can be used in the hair either wet or dry. It gives you some really gorgeous texture without making the hair stiff or unworkable. I find when I use this in wet hair and blow dry it, I get a really nice finish to my hair without it being weighed down and I can still run my fingers through it, this is important to me because sometimes I hate that product feeling in your hair. label. men Grooming Cream is also great when used in dry hair I tend to use a lot less in dry hair than wet because I don’t want it to be all stuck together clumpy. When I put it into my hair dry i get really nice texture and definition which to me is what I look for in a product.

Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Shampoo

Without a shadow of a doubt Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Shampoo (£23) is my favourite shampoo ever! I know that’s a bold claim to make but nothing makes my hair feel better than this. I’ve bought around 5/6 bottles of this and at £23 each you know it must do something for me to spend that much on a shampoo. This shampoo makes your hair so soft it’s unbelievable, you might think because its got 6 oils in it that its going to weigh your hair down and make it greasy but that’s not the case because oils are really important to our hair they help to do a number of things. Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Shampoo helps to soften, silken, tame, de-frizz, detangle and protect your hair, being also sulfate free its great for those of you who colour your hair a lot as you’ll find it will repair your hair but also protect your hair

Nip + Fab Kale Fix Moisturiser

Nip + Fab Kale Fix Moisturiser (£19.95) is one of those products i didn’t know i needed until  i read a review on it. I am quite skeptical of all this Kale chatter and how its amazing and everyone should use it because 10 years ago it was a plate garnish that no one touched and now its all the rage. I’ve been using Kale Fix Moisturiser for a while now and since i have dry skin this has been a lifesaver as Kale Fix Moisturiser contains a superfood powerhouse complex of kale, watercress and almond oil to enrich skin with deep vitamin nourishment and protects against external aggressions that can cause dry skin. Concentrated aloe vera and shea butter help to further soothe and improve skin texture, providing long-lasting hydration.

Makeup Revolution Velvet Matte Lip Lacquer

The Makeup Revolution Velvet Matte Lip Lacquer (£3.99) was something i discovered at Christmas when this gorgeous colour was part of a set and I have been loving it ever since. If you know me you’ll know that i love a deep dark purple…it might be the little emo inside of me from my teenage years haha. Velvet Matte Lip Lacquer reminds me so much of the Lime Crime Velvetines being that they are very matte and literally won’t come off until you use a really good makeup remover.

What are your favourite products?

  • I see this all the time people talking about shrinking their pores by using hot water and closing them with cold water but this simply isn’t possible 
There are no muscles connected to the pore so there is no way for them to open and close. The size of pores is largely down to genetics and there is not much you can do to change that.

He only muscle that can be found is the arrector pili which causes goose bumps by pulling the hairs up on your skin but it doesn’t have anything to do with your pores and tightening them. 
When you see an enlarged pore it doesn’t mean it’s open it most likely means it’s congested with dead skin cells and hardened sebum however you can fix this by using something like salicylic acid which can penetrate the pore lining and flush everything out making the pore appear smaller.

While there are products out there that can blur and temporarily tighten the skin there is nothing permanent out there that can change the size of pores.

  • If you haven't already heard Kylie Jenner is now dipping into skincare as well as makeup.

All I'll say is it's completely different putting a makeup line together as that's rather easy but trying to put together a skincare line that's actually useful and not a bunch of generic rubbish is harder.

Kylie Jenner has effectively repackaged one of the worst face scrubs known to man, St Ives Apricot Scrub! 
This new scrub will contain crushed walnut shells as it's main exfoliant which couldn't be worse for the skin as it has the tendency to cause micro tears in the skin if it's used roughly and can lead to all sorts of problems from letting bacteria into the skin to comprising your hydrolipid barrier.

With all of these new technology in skincare coming from brands like Deciem it feels like this Kylie Jenner product is coming from the late 2000s. To me it just screams lack of thought and can we talk about how generic it is? It's like all she wants to do is  make more money instead of actually formulating something actually useful.

What do you think about this new range? .

  • I know your first instance when it's really sunny is to strip off and enjoy the sun and while it's true you should enjoy the gorgeous days of summer you should be protecting yourself.

While we should be wearing sunscreen everyday it's especially important on beautiful sunny days like these.

You should be applying a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 every 2/3 hours when you're out in direct sunlight.

It's recommended that you use at least 20p piece size of sunscren for your face. 
I absolutely love the @larocheposayuki Anthelios range especially the Fluid version of Anthelios. I also really like @colorescienceuk sunforgettable mineral SPF 50 powder for reapplication when wearing makeup.

  • There's this idea that somehow applying more of a product will get you better results but this isn't true.

The opposite is actually true if you apply more all you'll get is unnecessary irritation and it might put you off using a product.

When using actives try to follow the recommendations on the back of the packaging.

I know I've done this before when I first used AHAs and it didn't go well but I'm glad I eventually learned as my mum would say "I'm a bull in a China shop" 🤣🤣

  • *SKINCARE ROUTINE*
I thought I would mix up my routine a little bit lately.

Cleanser- @dermalogicauk  Special Cleanser - I love this little bottle it's great for using when at the gym. It's a basic cleanser that gets the job done.

Tone/Serum - @katesomervilleskincare Dermalquench Liquid Lift *gifted* -  I apply it straight after cleansing. This is a spray loaded with hyaluronic acid and oxygen, apparently it's meant to felt firm and smooth whilst quenching and plumping the skin hence the name. It really is amazing if I'm honest it's as if you're just wiping away any dehydration and puffiness.

Serum - @officialmedik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense *gifted* - Whilst I do feel like this is way too expensive for what it is I do really like it. Hydr8 is really hydrating and soothing Its great for using with a retinol as it helps to combat the dryness with the Natural  Moisturising Factors (NMF)

Treatment - @sundayriley A+ Retinoid Serum *gifted - This is a brand new retinoid to me I originally used Luna which was the first ever retinoid I used so I was pretty excited to try this out. it says it's 6% it's more like a 4/5% because there's no way the plant like ingredients actually constitute as retinol. Other than that I'm liking it it doesn't compare to Adapalene but it's still good.

Moisturiser - @stubborncosmetics Customised Moisturiser *gifted - I am freaking loving this moisturiser it's so good to have a different moisturiser for the different parts of my face. I'm amazed no one has had this idea before it's so simple yet genius! I have combination skin so there is a side for the dry patches and a side for the oily parts of my face. This is a truly balancing moisturiser ❤️
