Winter Moisturiser Trifecta.

What most of us don’t realise is that all of the Winter comforts we look forward to are part of the reason we struggle with skin hydration…

I absolutely love Winter. The prospect of staying indoors surrounded by the comfort of my central heating, being bundled up in the warmest layers, drinking hot chocolate or eating my weight in marshmallows is what gets me through the Summer heat. What I seem to forget year after year is the dehydrating effects that Winter brings to my skin and the dryness which I suffer until Spring peeks around the seasonal corner.

Tried & Tested – RégimA Derma Zest Cleansing + Toning Gel

After a few more makeup applications, some iPhone X portrait mode photography testing (priorities) and some seriously dirty brushes, I put the RégimA Derma Zest Cleansing + Toning gel to work on these beauties and was ecstatic with the results.

A few years ago I started getting very seriously into makeup, I went through a period of binge shopping the latest trends online and discovering a myriad of brands thanks to bloggers and vloggers alike, some of whom I still take advice from and follow today. I have always worn makeup but my experience was limited to Christmas stocking fillers and the free applicator that they came with, never had I splurged on extravagant beauty tools or the Instagram worthy brushes I coveted. Last year, I finally went out and topped up my makup brush collection with a fairly expensive haul of gorgeous tools of unrivalled quality and only then did I think about how much care I needed to take in prolonging the life of these tools.

Battle of the face masks – Part 1.

I am not the most beauty or skincare savvy person and yet I always seem to have a mask or two at arms reach…

Like many others out there, I have this unexplained obsession with face masks. Even the most useless of products can make me feel pampered after its 15-20 minutes on my face on a low day. I am not the most beauty or skincare savvy person and yet I always seem to have a mask or two at arms reach so I decided to share some of these masks with you. They are not all high end, luxury products but rather accessible products for the everyday ‘beauty product challenged’ individual (Me!).

It is no secret that coconut oil has been likened to the universal remote of the beauty world; a one product fixes all solution. People living in a coconut-laden climate have been reaping the benefits for centuries, having only recently relinquished their secrets to the modern beauty world. Gioventù Cosmetics have been able to tap into the core of natural skincare and in their short time on the market, have given us the essential products for all of our beauty regime requirements.
