If you’re from the US then you’ve probably heard of Glossier and if you’re from anywhere and a reader of beauty blogs then you’ve definitely heard of intothegloss.com. Glossier is a beauty brand started by the creators of intothegloss.com, particularly Emily Weiss, aimed to provide fun and personal beauty products. I got introduced to Glossier earlier this year from a friend who let me try their boy brow and I loved it. After trying this, I decided to order some of their products and give them a try. When these products arrived there was a slogan written on the inside of the box that read: Skin first, Make-up second, smile always. As soon as I read this I instantly was a Glossier fan, their philosophy is that skincare is essential, make-up is a choice. Skin should most definitely always come first and is most definitely essential, this is a ritual I live by for sure.

If you’re fed up of spending money on the latest beauty products to hit the shelves and dream of a totally-natural beauty product, worry no more. I’ve trawled through my kitchen cupboards and found plenty of items that double up as beauty products – natural, cheap and ready for you to plaster all over your face when the urge for a teen-movie-self-improvement-montage strikes at 3am. Crank up the Clueless playlist and get ready…
Mineral foundations are a big ‘hype’ today because of all the harsh chemical’s and toxins that are commonly put into make-up and skincare products. And we know that none of those chemicals can be helping our skin. I am a big fan of mineral foundations, particularly bare minerals as they are much safer and cause less harm to your skin. I feel a little less guilty about wearing foundation on my acne-prone skin when I know its less likely to do more bad than good. I recently became aware of an upcoming brand dusty girls, an Australian company with their own mineral foundation, and this made me feel just as good as my trusty bare minerals.
Finding a good over the counter acne treatment can be difficult! Many of them seem harsh and advertise themselves as blackhead busting and blemish reducing, however I am often left with sore, red and unhappy skin. Prescription acne treatments have been the only help for my skin (- read my pills & potions post) and my go-to facial cleansers and toners often change as I find different ones that I like. Clearogen is for sure one of my new favourite drug-store acne treatments! Its a three-step system which is great to enable a routine in your skincare regime and each step works to target acne in various ways. I noticed changes in my skin almost immediately after using this product and even further as the first few months of use continued. I am very happy I found this product, and will definitely continue using it, especially the facial cleanser as this is my favourite component of the kit! So allow me to discuss the basics of Clearogen and show you visibly how it has helped me.
I didn’t edit this video just me being honest and speaking freely about this experience and how I felt after I finished this! Really proud of myself for sticking it out all the way through, it is honestly worth giving it a try. I hope you enjoy this video, so many more videos to come about other products I have tried, so stay tuned!
