My Spring Essentials

Now that the weather is getting warmer, it’s time to bust out the fake tan and razors again! These are some of my favourite products, just perfect for the Spring lifestyle: Spring Essentials 1. A Great Fake Tan Eco Tan Invisible Tan I’ve reviewed this one before, and I’m still loving it. It’s super easy to apply and hard to stuff up. It’ll only leave behind a gorgeous bronze tan with no nasty chemicals or orange colour in sight. The colour in the tan is derived from cacao (chocolate) so it does not contain green or orange tones.

Tried & Tested: La Mav Organic BB Cream

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).

When BB creams first hit the market I assumed they were just tinted moisturisers, re-branded, and was pretty hesitant to give them a try. But, as you […]

Beauty Essentials for all Ages: 30s

In your 30s, you may have started to notice signs of aging caused by circumstances that can take a toll on your skin, like stress or hormonal swings (due to age, pregnancy, or medications). It’s time to step up your regime from the basics. Take a cue from the 34 year old Beyonce, and get your skin care regime Flawless. 1. Irreplaceable sunscreen If you don’t already wear it every day, start. The sun causes 90% of wrinkles, and preventing them is easier than smoothing lines later on. Tip: Sunscreen becomes even more important following exfoliation as your skin is more […]
