SMR – 28.02.20


So today I have for you my Friday night 🌌 routine and I thought I’d treat myself by opening some shiny, new products. I haven’t opened many new things in a LONG time because I’ve been trying my best to get through the products I already have. I’ve even said no to a lot of PR so I can focus on what I already have! Tonight I am excited to use:


@pixibeauty – Hydrating Milky Cleanser and Milky Tonic. The ‘milky’ in this is actually jojoba milk, I really think this is such a fun, innovative ingredient. It’s plant based and provides hydration with a side of lipid replenishment.
@yslbeauty – Perfect Plumper Cream. I went to the launch of this range and I was fully endeared by their innovation process, extracting ingredients from their very lavish garden in Morocco. As you can imagine I’ve been looking forward to cracking this open and IT IS SO SMOOTH. I’ll update with continued use. But one thing that annoys me, why do brands provide little spoon things but no where to store them?
@luneia – Radiance Ritual. So, I’ve already used this once and it’s basically the answer for anyone and everyone who has tried The Ordinary AHA and BHA red mask but found it too irritating. This does the same thing with NO irritation. Such a dream for those with very reactive skin!
Now, I’m off to relax and enjoy some new skincare.
