I’ve written all about Grow Gorgeous and several of their products in the past, it’s a fabulous brand with some really fantastic products, and they have recently released a new shampoo and conditioner duo set to take the beauty industry by storm.
Being a beauty blogger I am often rotating and trying out new products, which means I have a lot of products within my collection and unless I really dislike a product or it has broke me out or reacted with my skin then I generally like to use it up and then bin it; rather than trialling it and then putting to the back my cabinet never to be seen again.
I don’t know about you but I love switching my perfumes up depending on the upcoming season, there are always 1 or 2 perfumes that I keep within my collection all year round but I like to switch them up to really embrace the season. We all have our own favourite fragrances and with the plethora of perfumes out there it can be difficult to pick out a new scent when you’re wanting to mix things up a bit.
Throughout the entire year, regardless of what month we’re in I always keep a good hydrating serum or moisturiser within my skincare routine. Something that’s lightweight, breathable and absorbs quickly so can be layered and built up to really hydrate the skin and give that plumped up youthful look. I am a big believer in layering hydrating and anti-oxidant serums onto my face and will often not use an actual moisturiser but opt more for layered serums. So I wanted to share you my current favourites, some of which have been in my collection for a long time and others are newly recent additions, all of which are ranging in price to suit all budgets:
As a warm eyeshadow lover I had been eyeing up this Smashbox Abalaze palette for quite some time along with the UD Naked Heat palette and realising I didn’t need both I decided to go with the Smashbox palette and I am so glad I did.
A makeup and skincare hybrid. The new REN Perfect Canvas Serum* is a silicone free serum to be used post-moisturiser as a makeup primer. This literally is a powerhouse cocktail for the skin, formulated with probiotics extract to enhance the speed of epidermal growth, it boosts the product of essential proteins and enzymes within the skin, improve barrier function and cell cohesion, hyluronans convert to hyaluronic acid in the skin to increase hydration and elasticity, agave tequilana extract provides an instant filling effect and α-Glucans rebalance the homeostasis of the skin by promoting the growth of skin friendly bacteria.
If you’ve not already heard of Cover FX, they are predominantly a makeup brand that have just started branching out into skincare. The products are fantastic quality and are they a 100% vegan friendly company, meaning they don’t use any animal bi-products or derivatives in their products and also don’t test any of their products or ingredients on animals. They also to steer way clear from parabens, artificial fragrances, gluten, mineral oil and talc.
