If you use Kiehl’s products you won’t need an introduction here. Kiehl’s just seem to keep bringing out consistently good products, one of my current favourites being the Daily Reviving Concentrate. I’ve been testing out their latest mask products, one of which is pollutant defending and the other an energizing radiance mask. I’ve been testing these out for the last month and they have easily became my favourite masks to use. I normally like a simple hydrating mask and these couldn’t be more different from what I’ve used before in a mask product. Read More »
I have always suffered from ingrown hair as soon as I started shaving. If it has ever happened to you, you know how painful and frustrating it is.
So I set myself a mission to prevent ingrown hairs as much as possible and so here are 5 ways that have worked for me and can hopefully help you too.
1. Steam Your Face
Your face is always open to the elements, it is one of the only parts of your skin that is always exposed and rarely do we treat it well enough. Therefore it is difficult to protect it especially from the weather and pollution we encounter on a daily basis. Something I have learnt is by steaming my face it really helps to prepare my face for shaving. I highly recommend using a good facial wash such as the Nip and Man Turbo Face Wash to start off, wash your face and pat dry. Steam your face with very hot water, you can use a flannel in hot water and carefully place it on your face and neck area and steam for up to a minute.
Another way is to steam your face with a large bowl with boiling water and add a towel over your head and lower to steam your face, exactly like you might have done as a kid with a cold, by using the bowl technique you ensure to steam your whole face and neck regions. Sometimes I might even borrow Paula’s facial steamer machine when she has it out. Read More »

I’m not going to lie, colour correction baffled me for a long time. I never even knew you could do such things with make-up correction and never did include it in my own routine. Then I started watching lots of YouTube videos as you do and really saw how it was able to make a difference. When I was researching colour correction I suffered from redness around my nose, which Murad skincare then helped clear up/keep at bay so now my main concern is more dark circles. Colour correction is actually based on the practice of the colour wheel, think back to school days.
I’ve being using Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation for about a year now I think. It’s my everyday foundation and I have tried many others, but just nothing seems to work as well for me as this one. I decided to try the Armani foundation after seeing numerous reviews and videos and just really loved the look and coverage it gave. I headed to the Armani beauty counter in Selfridges and got colour matched, they have an excellent range of colours for the Luminous Silk, 21 shades to be exact. I like my foundation a little darker than my true face colour, as I wear self tan and so my colour was matched as 4. It was the perfect colour and even when I don’t have tan on my face it still looks really good.
As well as the Luminous Silk Foundation they also have a few others I’ve been trying recently which may work better for you, so I thought I’d put together a handy guide to help you make a decision if you are considering opting for an Armani foundation. So first up I’ll start with the one I use, the Luminous Silk Foundation. Read More »
