Some Of The Best Oils For All Your Skin Concerns.

10199645705_1d7f8bd8c1_b

 

There are a few oils that are quite common that many people already know the benefits of. But there are still a great many others that aren’t as well known. Below we’ll be talking about just a few of the most popular choices on the market at the moment, ones that are usually included in many different high-end and luxury skin care products.

I’m oil obsessed and think that everyone should use an oil rather than a moisturiser so, we’re gonna take a look at some of the benefits you will get from using a facial oil that most likely wouldn’t get with a moisturiser by showcasing some of my favourite oils.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation.

I’ve been doing a lot of foundation samples lately. Sephora has been throwing them at me and I’ve just been out here catching them like, yep, ok thanks. Because I’m a foundation hoarder and hey, if I don’t have to buy before I try without going into a store? Yeah I’m there for that. The thing about foundation samples though, at least the deluxe ones often offered by Sephora and other places, is that usually they don’t go beyond tan. So a dusky girl like myself, is often SOL.

Crushing On Some Julep Skin Care.

I started doing Julep Maven boxes again when I bought a new subscription last September. Before that time I hadn’t done a Maven box in probably two years. I had stopped because working at Starbucks, I was unable to wear nail polish and at the time that was the bulk of their subscription model. Fast forward a few years and they not only offer all manner of nail items, but they’ve branched out into makeup and more recently skin care.

Valentia Does It Again!

Remember last year when I did that post in the Valentia Vitamin C serum that set me over the moon? Yeah, it was wonderful, and so when the company reached out to me again to test s few of their new products, I was thrilled.

I was sent two items, the True Glow Eye serum and the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask. One of the things that I really love about Valentia is their ingredients list. Like, seriously everything used can be listed on the back of the box in regular sized font. No names that I can barely pronounce and things that are already familiar. The ingredients list on this is ridiculously simple, Japanese, Aloe Vera, Seabuckthorn Oil (that I’ve previously raved about), Japanese Green Tea and Rosehip Seed Oil. Yeah, just that.

Out Damned Spot! AKA Valentia Is Where It’s At.

Listen, the hype is real ya’ll.

You ever read reviews from bloggers or a website and you’re all like “nah, all those reviews can’t be legit” ? Let me just put it this way. The day Valentia sends me a product that either doesn’t work or I have an allergic reaction to it, my world is gonna implode. Flowers will cease to bloom, puppies and babies will no longer be adorably and cuddly and I’ll give up on beauty entirely. Ok, well maybe not that last part, that’s just too drastic. What I’m trying to say is everything they’ve sent me so far has been wondrous.

Boscia Charcoal Makeup Melter Cleansing Oil Balm.

I’ve been kind of skin care crushing lately. Not for any particular reason, since my skin has been phenomenal lately. The reason for that? I recently went freelance, that means that I’m no longer wearing makeup to work everyday. It also means sadly that I have less time dedicated to writing on the blog since now I’m writing other peoples stuff. Because I’m not wearing makeup daily though, it means that my skin has more time to recover when something goes wrong and the odd issue crops up. So I’m basically crushing on maintenance items like scrubs, masks, serums and such.

Throw Out All Your Expensive Serums. This Is All You’ll Ever Need.

She’s back! It’s been a rough couple weeks, and I’m still trying to hack up a lung most of the time. But I’m lucid at least.

But seriously, about that title, I promise it’s true.

You all know that I love serums. To death. I’m always up for trying a new one. I’ve used everything from $10 NYX serums, to the $150 Michael Todd Knu Serum. The latest serum that I had been using was the Lancôme Visionnaire which clocks in at a lovely $89 plus tax. It was so good though, that after I finished the bottle that New Beauty sent me, I was more than willing to fork over the loot to Sephora to have a new one of my very own.
