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.
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.
Skin Concerns: Post-Accutane / Redness / Scars
This is my new favourite product, especially since finishing accutane! My face always has an overall redness to it, due to a mix of being on the really harsh accutane and having plenty of scars caused by my acne. This cream reduces that redness pretty much completely and helps my skin to look clearer, softer and calmer! It is suggested that you don’t use this whilst taking accutane, but it is definitely one of the best products to use after. I use this every morning and every night at the minute and would feel lost with out it. Definately now a major part of my daily skincare routine (which I will update you on soon as it has changed recently!). It’s literally a little skin miracle in a bottle. Since using this cream I have barely used moisturiser, this is moisturising enough without being greasy. Its really easy to place under make up too, so it works really well as a base.
Firstly, thank you very much to the Mr Bean Body Care Company for sending me this product. I love being able to try new things to review! So what actually is this Mr Bean scrub, it’s a Organic Coffee Scrub with Robusta Coffee Beans, Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, Himalayan pink rock salt, Demerara Sugar, Organic Cacao and Vitamin E oil. It aims to improve your skins imperfections and rehydrate your skin…
Most of these I have blogged about before, but I thought it was important post-accutane to inform those of you on it, or going on it a full list of all the products I think are a necessity when taking accutane. The side effects definitely effect everyone differently so I have listed which side effect each product helps…
