I am returning to the UK today, and I am super excited to get my hands on some of my favourite beauty products that I could not find here in the USA. Many of you may have read my Friday Favourites: Top Beauty Finds in the States, so I thought a European Version was essential. I opted for ‘European’ as many of my faves that I struggled to find in America were actually my French Pharmacy brands! Here are my European Favourites.
As you may know, I have spent the last year studying abroad and now being an intern in Arizona. In less than 2 weeks I will be leaving and heading back to England. While I have been here there are some products that I have loved, that I am definitely stocking up on before I leave. Here are my USA favourites.
I had the chance to have an online interview with Dr. Debra Jaliman an NYC dermatologist and author of the book Skin Rules. She said ‘acne is my passion’ therefore I got the chance to ask her a wide range of acne related questions! Learn more about supplements, diet, cleansing and good product ingredients for acne-prone skin.
We all know that cleaning your make-up brushes is unbelievably important, yet we often forget or just skip it because we are too lazy. I’m not going to lie, this is also the case with me! But think about all the dirt and bacteria that remains in those brushes. You can see it for yourselves too, when eventually we get around to cleaning them, the amount of foundation that runs off your beauty blender or brush. It’s actually pretty disgusting. Which is why this weeks ‘skincare tips’ post is a reminder: clean your make-up brushes!
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.
