April Monthly Favourites: 2016

I actually struggled a little to put together this april monthly favourites as I really didn't try out too many new products, and especially with makeup I've kept it pretty simple, opting for well known and loved products. There are a few lifestyle products I'm including this month, but I promise everything listed is a must have for me over the month of April and worth knowing about!

Three of The Most Underrated Foundations You Should Try

Chances are at least once in your life, you have probably purchased a foundation solely on it's hype within the beauty community. Sometimes you love it, other times it may not be for you. Estee Lauder Double Wear, MAC Studio Fix Fluid and Too Faced Born This Way are all foundations that come to mind when I think of some bases which have been talked about and hyped up on many Beauty Blogs and YouTube channels. But what about all those little guys out there that don't get recognized or talked about? The discounted foundation you bought that turned out to be awesome? The foundation that you picked up randomly at the drugstore and then fell in love with? Today I'm talking about 3 very underrated foundations that I never hear much about but which I really like a lot and think are worth trying!

Philosophy Skincare: My Favourite Products

Best Products To Purchase from Philosophy Skincare

A relatively new skincare brand which has been welcomed into my skincare routine is Philosophy Skincare who believe in working closely with dermatologists and scientists to offer revolutionary ingredients, breakthrough formulas and advanced technology for the skin. Their skincare is designed to not only deliver dramatic results but to enhance the integrity of the skin. I really like Philosophy Skincare, especially their "promise to deliver remarkable products that inspire you to live a better life by being better to yourself". They also have super cute, and innovative packaging which makes it easy to read and understand the purpose of each product and directions for use. Today, I'm highlighting some of my most-loved products from this brand with mini reviews of each. I'm actually not a big fan of the cult favourite purity cleanser, so you may even discover some products you haven't heard of before!

Skincare 101: A Guide To Facial Serums for Every Skin Concern

Serums explained for every skincare concern

I never really understood the purpose behind a serum until I started to become more interested in skincare, and began doing research into different types of serums for a variety of skin types and concerns. Many people think that a serum is a fancy or glorified moisturiser, however a serum is something that targets a specific skin concern and generally contains active ingredients that penetrate the skin to address the concern. Picking the correct serum can help you tackle your skin issues and can be focused around anything from anti-aging to dullness, dryness or acne. In today's post, I am explaining the benefits of using a serum and including my favourite serums for a variety of skin concerns to give you an idea of how they can be used!
