Two weeks ago, I mentioned in my previous blog post that I have accumulated quite a few empties over the past few months and just haven't had the time to share with you this collection of products. As promised, here is part 2 of my empties adventure - with a good mix of skincare, haircare and even a sunscreen! I find that with my empties, there seems to be a recurring trend of a few products. This post especially contains some old favourites which you may have seen pop up in previous posts. However, there is a reason why they keep springing up all the time - they just happen to be some of my tried and true holy grails. Read on for part 2 of my empties!Read More
It's been a while since I have done an empties post! With work being quite busy and the move early this month, its been a little hard to take the time to write all about the things I have used up over the past few months. Having looked at my empties - serums seem to have a heavy focus, especially of the hydrating variety! However, there are a few other skincare bits and pieces as well as new holy grail product in the mix.
I have said it a few times in the past, but I really do enjoy both reading other's empties posts and writing my own as it allows myself to know what products myself and others have really enjoyed using, or products that are on regular rotation in daily routines. This particular version of empties contains products that I really have made the effort to use consistently. Some of these I have written about before in other blog posts and others are products where a review is pending! Overall, I have really enjoyed many of these products and it's probably why they have all been used up! Read on to find out more about my March/April empties.Read More
I love blogging and the skincare community. Blogging and Instagram in particular, has been such a great medium for me to get to know like-minded people (whether it be in skincare or just general life) but also a means for me to be able to learn, expand my knowledge and of course be recommended all sorts of different types of products and brands. It is through social media and blogging that I have been introduced to, purchased and experienced products such as Pixi Glow Tonic, Jordan Samuel Skin's serums, sheet masks and the world of facial oils. There is a never-ending list of products that I wish to purchase and try and my skincare stash has most definitely taken over my bathroom vanity. It is also through social media and blogging that I have learned to appreciate the beauty and simplicity of the 'hydrating serum'. Since Caroline Hiron's introduced me to my very first one (Indeed Lab's Hydraluron), I don't think I have ever looked back as hydrating serums have become a staple in my daily skincare routine. I am rarely without one.
What are hydrating serums exactly? Well, in a nutshell, it is a skincare product designed to give the skin a boost of hydration. Hydration serums normally contain ingredients such a hyaluronic acid - an impressive molecule that can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water and humectants which help to seal and lock in water, keeping the skin looking hydrating, healthy, lifted and plump. I have used a variety of different hydrating serums and here are 7 of my favourites.Read More
