As many of you will know by now, I have been a huge fan of Aurelia Probiotic Skincare ever since I discovered the absolute joy that is their beautiful Miracle Cleanser earlier this year. I loved the products so much that I even posted a simple “self-care” routine (here) using just two of them, to show that you don’t always need an elaborate and complicated lineup to pamper your skin. Since then, the cleanser has become an integral part of my skincare stash and just this week it has helped get my skin back on track after an allergic reaction that left it red, itchy and inflamed. Aurelia are truly one of the most beautiful brands out there with products that actually deliver, so when I heard they were opening their very first pop-up boutique in London I had to go. Last night I had the pleasure of hanging out with some of the amazing team, had a facial that healed my skin and also got to see their new products, which I am so excited about to tell you all about!

Summer Favourites: Part One – How I Healed My Skin From A Bad Breakout

img_0659

July and August were extremely busy months for me and because of that I barely had the time (or energy) to consistently post my skincare routines on Instagram. What you missed during those months was me being reckless and excitedly trying a bunch of new products all at once (I know, I know) and ending up with a pretty intense bad reaction. For the first time in years I had multiple big, red, painful blemishes and it was not pleasant. Luckily, I was able to very quickly heal my skin, so in this post I wanted to share with you the star products that helped me do that. As it was summer, my morning routine was all about sun protection, but in the evenings I was able to fully concentrate on tackling the breakouts, and as that’s when the majority of the healing took place, this post is going to focus on the routine that got my skin back on track.

Current Favourite Mask Routine

IMG_9880

One of the things I missed most about not sharing my skincare routines on Instagram is the discussions I had with all of you. I missed talking about the products and how and why I used them and getting really helpful feedback and tips. Now that I am getting back into sharing my routines I just had to do a blog post on this one because I’ve done it twice already and each time I can’t get over how much better my skin looks. The star product in the lineup is the Sacred Ground Mineral Mask from MOSS and it’s really what inspired this post because I have so much to say about my experience with it so far. It’s an incredible product and one I think you all need to know about. Since it’s such an involved routine I thought it would be good to fully explain how and why I use each product and what each step entails, so you know exactly what I did and could recreate it yourself. Enjoy! Continue reading

Birthday Wish List 2016

One of the things I love most about my birthday is the freedom to treat myself all month long (yes all month, hello Leo season!) without feeling guilty and what I unabashedly want most is more skincare. Yep, I love skincare so much that I have multiple categorized (cleansers, toners etc) and ranked (most wanted to casual wants) wish lists dedicated to all the beautiful products I can’t wait to get on my face, and this post is a look at the things I want right now.

Best of British: S5 Cleansers Review & Giveaway!

IMG_9156

After a brief hiatus, the concluding series of posts in my Best of British feature is back and I am starting with a plant based yet still high performance niche UK brand that has impressed me to no end. S5 is an organic cosmeceuticals line of products from the same incredibly talented, hardworking and passionate team behind the beautiful brand Evolve (review here), so you know it’s going to be good. Unlike Evolve, which focuses on nourishing the skin with gorgeous (and borderline edible) superfood ingredients, S5 is all about treating skin conditions with highly effective natural ingredients that are just as good or better than their synthetic equivalent. For example, I can’t wait to write about their amazing serums that tackle everything from blemishes and hyperpigmentation to scarring and dermatitis, but those are currently being reformulated (which I am so excited about), so for now it’s all about these cleansers, which so many of you have asked about since they started appearing in my Instagram posts.

As many of you will know by now, Omorovicza are a brand I have loved and used for many years. It all began one Christmas when I received a beautiful set of deluxe samples and since then the products have become a constant staple in my routines. When they asked me to take part in their Summer Skin Edit series I could not have been more excited and humbled. It was a huge honour to collaborate with one of my all time favourite brands and I had such a good time shooting my picks. You can check out my edit on Omorovicza’s blog here and below is a full description of everything I picked and why. Enjoy! Continue reading
