I got this in a set over christmas from my sister and I’ve been dying to try it out as I love to wear an overnight mask when my skin starts to feel uncomfortable and tight. Origins is a brand that I’ve only just started exploring as I love brands that use all natural and organic ingredients like Kiehl’s & Lush. I like to use this once or twice a week when possible by applying it as the last step in my night time skincare routine. It doesn’t feel greasy or have an overpowering smell which I like and leaves my face feeling soft and hydrated by morning.
I got this as a sample in my goodie bag from the Kiehl’s event last month which you can read about here. I’m also near the end of this now and I have been very impressed with how well it’s kept my skin feeling hydrated throughout the day as it claims to keep you moisturised for up to 24hrs. I think this is going to work wonders for me during the colder months and is doing a good job now but I have another Kiehl’s face cream which I bought last weekend to try out. I’ve really been converted to Kiehl’s now.
I needed a new foundation that was great for dry skin so I asked on twitter and the lovely EmmyBeautyCave aka the foundation guru recommended me this Max Factor one, I’ve never really tried Max Factor foundation before and I think I might give this a full review so I won’t say too much but, this doesn’t dry my skin out and covers redness well but you need to wear this with a primer even though it says it primes.
I had enough Birchbox points saved up so I bought This Works Sleep Spray. Sleep sprays aren’t new to me and I find them amazing to help you drift off, I use a cheap £4 boots own brand one which don’t get me wrong is good but I’ve always wanted to try a more expensive one and I’m glad I did because the smell is just so much stronger and slightly different. This will last me so long as I don’t use it every night but on days where I’m feeling a bit worried and agitated or just not ready to sleep, it helps all those problems and let’s me drift off naturally.
I saw this colour on Twitter or Instagram and I just fell in love so I went out and bought it as I don’t really have many blues in my collection and saw this as the perfect spring manicure. it’s very bright on the nails and people at my work even pointed it out.
