My skin has finally settled down following that onslaught of hormones so I can properly trial BB Creams again. I feel like they get a bit of a rough task when you road test them on acne. No product is ever going to do well when up against acne! Fearing my La Mav BB cream was almost empty, in true Abi style, I bought a replacement lest I be caught out with nothing – the newest product from the 100% Pure range, BB Cream. Nope, still haven’t finished the other one – now I’ve just got two BB creams on rotation. Ok, […]
What on earth did I wear before BB creams? Probably the second greatest invention, after mascara, of the century. Back when I was at school I tried the minimal makeup thing and used a tinted moisturiser (spoiler alert, they’re rubbish).

Mainstream foundations can carry a range of nasty ingredients, like parabens, petroleum by-products, fragrance, PEG’s, phthalates and even heavy metals. Yuck! Rather than ask you to give them up (I’m not that sadistic) I would invite you all to give mineral foundations a try. Mineral foundations are natures alternative to your standard toxic foundations. But how do you choose what sort of foundation is best for you? Especially when shopping online it feels like you’re entering a mine field of choice! I consider myself quite the make-up expert.
