This past month I hit the shops and spent a little more than usual. Here’s the run down on some of my favourite purchases. I have plenty of things coming in the mail over the next week or so to review so keep an eye out!
Phisohex – I have been struggling with acne since easter with a massive shift in my hormones and sebum (oil producing) glands working overtime. I invested in Phisohex and am cleansing twice a day with it. Within only a few days I noticed a huge difference in inflammation disappearance. It does dry your skin out quite a lot so I do find I need to use a much more moisturising primer before applying makeup to prevent cracking but my skin is definitely a lot clearer. I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone with sensitive skin as it is quite harsh but for those of you with fairly oily/combination skin go for it! I apply mine with my electric Modelco facial brush. Eventually I will definitely invest in a better quality brush but for now this one works great with multiple different attachments to chose from.
Real Techniques Beauty blender – OMG! I have a love hate relationship with these things. Finally I am starting to like beauty blenders. I used to absolutely hate them as they would remove my makeup instead of applying it. Thanks to Real Techniques though I have found one that applies a beautiful natural application of makeup. Not something I would use for a formal event as I like quite full coverage but for everyday makeup this works perfect and 10x easier to clean and look after than my buffing brushes. I purchased a double pack of these beauties so that I can wash them more regularly without worrying about when they will dry. You can purchase cheaper beauty blenders but they definitely won’t last as well as these.
Babyliss Pro AU heat styling mat – As a hairdresser this is an absolute lifesaver. I pop mine on my trolley and place straighteners/curling wands etc on it. No need to clutter up the bench space in front of clients and completely transportable which is perfect for when I am doing weddings.
