Sephora buys

Sunday, 4 November 2018

Here are my latest Sephora buys. This is what happens when you go on a business trip and have nothing better to do after work so you end up in not one, but two Sephora's in the same day. 

I have seen this Bum Bum Cream on social media so much that I decided to finally buy it (after having numerous chances of buying it from different Sephora's in Europe). It smells...unique - not your usual kind of cream and it isn't sticky either. This is the travel size available from the Beauty to Go section from Sephora. I think it was 20 euros or so. 

This is the Clinique Moisture Surge hydrating concentrate. This is also another thing that I wanted to try but couldn't justify buying the original size. Very happy with this. It reminds me of the Clinique Moisture Spray but more watery version. Very soothing and doesn't smell very much either. 

I recommend both products!

Clear skin

Wednesday, 10 January 2018

Happy 2018! Let's start and end the year with clear skin! 

Tips for clear skin...

1. Water - drink lots of water. 

2. Sleep - a lot of sleep.

3. Quit foundation - you don't need it if you have good skin. Concealer is enough. If you don't have good skin, let your skin breathe until it gets better!

4. Change your pillowcase often.

5. Clean your phone using anti-bacterial wipes. You placing your phone to your ear and touching it again will just spread more germs.

6. Asian acne spot stickers. What a discovery this was. You simply stick a spot sticker to your spot, sleep - and in the morning, it will be greatly reduced in size, if not...gone. I know, I's hard to believe until you try and see for yourself. 

7. Benzoyl Peroxide - you can buy this over the counter at Boots. This stuff is strong. A tiny amount is enough. Also, if you are not used to it - it may turn your skin red so start off with a tiny amount first. It dries out your spots. 

8. Stop touching your face and keep hair out of your face.

9. Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray Last year, I stopped using face creams for a while. Instead, I switched to Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray. I think it helped. Now, I use Neutrogena Hydro Boost water gel moisturiser before I use the face spray. Especially in dryer winter months, it's important to use a cream. In my case, a more water based one!

10. Tea tree oil spot stick This helps when you have tiny spots.
