Earlier this month I did a little spring skincare and beauty haul and I thought it would be a nice idea to start sharing with you some of the stuff I pick up along the way. Spring has got me thinking about starting a new slate, so the first area I decided to work on is my skincare and beauty regimen.
I’ve never been one to really bother having a rigid skin care or beauty regimen, I tend to keep it fairly simple. But as I am getting older I want to start taking better care of my skin and I also want to start experimenting and playing with makeup. So I will definitely be sharing some of the experimentation here on the blog
So these are the items I got for my very first Skincare and Beauty Haul, Le’go
I’m actually done with these, they were soothing and hydrating and I really enjoyed the way they felt on my skin. I use these as the first step to my makeup removal process, it makes it really easy to get most of my makeup off before I go in with my cleanser.
Previously, I either used jojoba oil or a mix of Nap85 body and hair oil to moisturize my face, but I’ve decided to start experimenting with other moisturizers so I picked this up. Its very rich and creamy and a little goes a long way. I’ve been having dry patches on my cheek area and this has helped keep those areas hydrated. By the way if you have a favorite moisturizer that you think I should give a try do let me know in the comment section below.
These micelar cleansing waters have been all the rave within the past year. The most popular one being the bioderm micelar solution, but a lot more companies have come out with their own versions. I’ve heard a lot of beauty gurus talk about them so I caved in and decided to give this a try. They’re supposed to be a 2 in 1 cleanser and makeup remover. I use this after the Loreal Sublime Soft Hydrating Wipes with some cotton pads and I must say I do like it. It does a great job of removing whatever residue is left on my face. I also do a second round after my cleanser just to make sure there isn’t any lingering makeup left over.
This is another product a lot of beauty gurus swear by, so I wanted to give it a try. I know I’m late to this bandwagon but I’m not much of a makeup wearer and my previous primer lasted forever LOL But now that I’m trying to get a little more “serious” about makeup application I decided to start experimenting with some of the cult favourites. So far I love it’s texture and it does the job, since I’m new to the market I don’t really know if its the best yet So I’ll probably give it a proper review after I’ve tried others.
I usually use brushes and / my fingers when it comes to foundation and makeup application but a lot of beauty gurus swear by the beauty blender sponge and how it makes makeup application smooth and flawless. I found the Real techniques sponge at H&M and thought I should get my feet wet before advancing to the beauty blender. So far I feel like I need to use a lot more product with the sponge to get the same kind of coverage I get with my fingers and brushes but I’m still experimenting.
I love these and I think they are such a cute and genius idea LOL I’m one of those people who stick to what works so I usually get this same flavor every time I run out coz I dont want to get something I don’t end up liking LOL so if you’ve tried some of the other flavors and have a recommendation do let me know :)
That’s it for my very first spring skincare and beauty haul, I did get a couple more stuff recently so I will be sharing those in upcoming posts
…and thank you all so much for the kind comments on my previous post ILY,
