The search for the perfect foundation…

So, I haven’t posted in quite a while. I got a new job and moved in with my boyfriend which means I have been super busy. 

However while sorting all of that out I’ve been taking my time to find the perfect foundation. For years I have used high street brands and have found I few that I really love, for example Rimmel ‘Wake me up’ foundation. I have used this foundation for a number of years and it does generally work for my skin. 

But and its a big but, I have suffered in my mid 20’s from weird combination skin- which I never had when I was younger FYI. 😤 This means what I need out of a foundation has changed. 

To cut a long story short my friend suggested I try Clinique foundations. She swears by them and suffered with her skin like some women through her pregnancy and after. I went off and found some testers and got cracking. 

I tried a couple but ended up deciding on the ‘Beyond Perfecting’ foundation and concealer in 2 Alabaster. At £25 for 30ml it’s not cheap ladies but oh so worth it.

  

I love the packaging the bottle feels heavy and worth the money.  

 

The wand is nice and big so apply it with this straight to your face, it doesn’t hold too much product which is good because just a tiny amount of this goes far! 

I apply it a dab on each cheek, a tiny swipe down my nose and on my forehead and use a stippling brush to blend it around my face and work a bit down to my neck. Here it is on my slightly red face (I’ve been tangling with bed sheets) this is the 8th hour of wear.

  

I hope you enjoyed this post ladies, let me know what you think and if you have found your perfect foundation.

Feeling fresh, Neutrogena 2-in-1 Review

Today I wanted to share with you a 2-in-1 product that I have been LOVING at the moment and it’s a bargain around £4.00. What more could you want?

The Neutrogena Visibly Clear is a 2-in-1 daily wash and weekly face mask> Here it is ready for my bath, along with my jammies and Liberty of London print scrunchie 🙂



The consistency is quite thick as you would expect a face mask to be but as soon as you give it a rub under the water, it turns lovely and foamy. It feels really luxurious which I wasn’t expecting when I first started using it.


It starts tightening straight away, ‘scuse the trout pout! haha. I thought I’d better take a photo mid application. Again, it feels so luxurious and goes on nice and thick. It has a cooling effect which feels great, it states to leave it on for 5 minutes but I left mine on while I was in the bath. The mask is designed for a deep clean and to tighten pores, which I totally think it does.

The lighting isn’t great but my skin was left feeling super clean, my pores reduced and this morning my skin had the healthiest glow. I would say this mask is best for combination to oily skin, which mine is, especially if i’m hormonal.

What beauty post would be complete without a Lush product, this is Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner. Just take it into the shower or bath with you, apply over your wet skin and wash off just like a hair conditioner for your skin.

Seriously, thank me later! 🙂

You can catch me on Twitter, Instagram anndddd if you have time I would really appreciate it if you would follow my blog on WordPress or Blog Lovin’. Thank you, you’re the best!

Well, I hope you enjoyed this post my lovely. If you have a face wash or mask you swear by let me know, I would love to hear from you.
