There have been a number of products making me smile recently and here are three of my personal best.
First up, is this face cleanser by First Aid Beauty. This is a gentle cream cleanser and is specially designed for sensitive or irritated skin. As far as I'm aware this is only available online in the UK and I purchased mine from Amazon. I decided I wanted to try this simple and gentle cleanser as an alternative to the exfoliant or gel face washes I normally use. So far, so good and my skin has thanked me for it. I used to think cream cleansers would feel thick on my oily skin but this feels clean and removes all grime and oil. It also has no parabens, harsh chemicals or colourants. My only gripe is it can slightly sting the eyes if not careful.(ouch!)
Next up, the lovely Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation. I seriously struggle to find a foundation that lasts on my skin. I didn't think this would be much different as I had tried the Rimmel Matte BB cream and that still slipped by mid morning. Now, I'm not saying this is my holy grail foundation and I've found "the one" but I think it really has helped keep my shine at bay and last longer than most foundations I have used. As it is a mousse it is light and goes on like a dream. My skin feels soft and velvety. Will most probably re-purchase!
Lastly, the Seventeen cheek stamp in blushing. This is a really light dolly pink blusher. I must admit, it was a bit of a novelty purchase because of the sponge stamp applicator. But I really enjoy using this. You simply stamp the colour on to your cheeks and a pop of pink is applied. I find I have to blend it out after with a brush as there is quite a bit of product on the sponge applicator. I'm very happy to use any product that makes me feel like a porcelain doll, plus this comes with a little mirror on the lid so this gets a cute factor thumbs up!
