Pretty much every single time I upload a ‘heavy’ makeup tutorial I get a stream of people requesting that I do a makeup removal routine. So this week I finally caved and filmed it, though just a small heads up, it’s really is super simple. I’m not fond of using tones of products every day. I prefer to have a selection of products which I love and use them when my skin needs it.
My skin is combination and depending on my current diet or my mood (especially my mood) my skin can do a total 180
Since switching to coconut milk I’ve noticed that my skin really doesn’t need added moisture that often since it get’s the moisture internaly instead of externally, which personally I find to be the best method. In terms of skin care I think products are there to help your skin along, not there to make your skin dependent on them.
I did a review of this here a few months ago and as you can see in the video I have two backups of this product, that’s how much I love it. It’s fantastic and worth every penny! (and a little goes a loooooong way).
Breath of Fresh Air:
Again, another product I’ve done a review of (here) and I think I’ve gone through 3 bottles of this one so far but one thing I do is add a little of magnesium to it, roughly about a tea spoon for the whole bottle. Makes a massive difference to my skin.
Been using this as an eye cream for well over a year now and I can’t really see myself changing that any time soon. Apart from being lovely on the skin it’s great for keeping your eyelashes in good condition. I get mine from Holland and Barrette.
Aloe Vera Gel:
Normally there are two main creams I use, this and pure coconut butter (the same you would use for cooking). But like I mentioned I like to adjust my products according to what my skin needs and at the moment it’s feeling a little sensitive. Again, I get this at Holland and Barrette.
Mascara Removal Massage Brush:
I wonder how many of you thought this was some kind of weird rubber toothbrush? This is a fairly recent addition to my makeup removal routine but it’s beauty! So much more gentle on the eyes than the disposable mascara wands I was using before. I got mine here (**).
