Skincare Products am currently obsessed with

Today, I’m sharing with you skincare favorites that are really working for me. I’ve broken them down into different categories, depending on what I use them for. Keep reading to learn about the products and why they’re so great.

For Moisturising 
Currently, I am using the neutrogena hydro boost moisturiser as my daily moisturizer. It’s lightweight and hydrating, but it also makes my skin more dewy instead of dull and dry. It’s not greasy, though I would recommend it more for dry skin than oily skin. This is not heavy on the face and leaves my face feeling soft and smooth .

For removing makeup

I have been loving the clinque take the day off cleansing balm .This is probably about the best balm cleanser you will find for price, functionality and efficacy.
  • It removes everything – even waterproof – easily, quickly and with no faff.
  • Leaves the skin completely clean and soft – does not leave an oily film behind.
  • A small amount goes a long way.
  • Brilliant for massage.
  • Economical
  • I suspect its probably the best balm available for sensitive skins (I can’t promise anything – it’s a general observation)

Most of the time, I just love a good sheet mask. They’re quick, easy, give great results, and the least messy. Many, brands make them, but one I been loving the Glam Glow Brightening Mask,Glamglow masks have always been on my wishlist as they are well known brand for face masks. They offer a variety of masks, but lately, my skin has became a little dull, so I went ahead and bought Flashmud which is their brightening treatment. .It also reduces acne scarring and minimizes redness. I leave this on my face for 20minutes and the results is amazing ,I have acne scars which do not fade away easily and this mask has made my skin look so much clearer than any of my others mask did. Flashmud has a very unique texture – slightly creamy texture with some scrub granules. It is very easy to apply. This mask also has a very pleasant, citrusy scent.decided to purchase the small size (15g) to see if this is worth purchasing the full size ,it’s kind of pricey but I will definitely be getting the full size as it’s worth every penny 

I have also be loving the the 7-IN -1 Miracle Skincare Pads ,
Generally speaking, this entire pad is soaked in serum, so you will get your dose of moisture no matter what side you use. Each pad has a tiny pocket, which is big enough to fit in at least two fingers for a better "grip". The brand suggests that you do not rinse your face after using this product; you should leave the serum on and wait for it to sink in.when I do feel like my skin is feeling dull in the morning (like it could use an extra bit of love and massage) - I think this little guy could be very useful.

For a Deep Clean 

The combination of the clinque cleansing soap and my Vanity Plant cleansing deep pore brush head give me the deepest clean I could get. I like to use this combo after using the wipes because it prevents me from pushing my makeup all around my face and making an utter mess! It really helps with unclogging my pores too. This step keeps my skin clear and free of breakouts

That is quite a list of skincare favorites, no? They’re all products I’ve been using and testing for a long time, so I’m pretty confident in their abilities. Hopefully you found some new products that interest you. I would recommend all of them! Just make sure they work for your skin type before purchasing.

How To Apply Your Primer Like a Pro


A flawless face is the basis of every great makeup look, and while a great skincare regimen, foundation and concealer work wonders, makeup artists have another trick up their sleeves for stunning skin: primer.
If you’re not familiar with makeup primers then let us give you a, um, primer. These silky soft creams and gels are meant to be applied underneath your makeup to guarantee perfect foundation application by filling in fine lines and smoothing out uneven texture. As an added benefit, they also keep your makeup looking fresh all day.
These pro products have come a long way in the past decade, moving from the makeup artist’s kit to your vanity, and come in a mindboggling array of choices. Keep reading for everything you ever wanted to know about these perfect-skin essentials.
Pick Your Primer
Primers are so beloved by experts because they can do so much more than just make your foundation go on smoother. Primers are sort of like insurance for your makeup. Although they often wear many hats — smoothing, concealing, protecting and prepping — their main roles are to keep your makeup on longer and give your skin a smooth, flawless finish. Any fading, bleeding or blotchy behavior that can occur throughout the day can be prevented with the use of a little bit of primer under your foundation. As an added bonus, many primers now are infused with SPF, so they keep your skin protected while lending radiance. Here are a few of our favorite types:
Fenty Pro Filter primer

The texture of the primer is very lightweight and feels ultra comfortable on the skin. It has a gel-like consistency. It does not feel heavy or sticky at all and also does not leave any residue behind. Just a little amount goes a long way. I need just one-and-half pump to prep my face properly. The primer is super easy to blend even with fingers. It spreads on the skin effortlessly and blends really well within a few seconds. It melts with the warmth of my skin and sinks into it without much effort. It gives a soft matte finish to the skin. It does not cast any oily sheen behind, but after a few hours of application, I do observe a light sheen on my skin, which I believe is pretty normal for my combination-oily skin. Purchase here 
Maybelline Baby Pores Primer 

I apply a very small amount and smooth it over all the areas where I want to minimize my pores. Instantly, it seems as if this product completely blurs my imperfections. It is truly remarkable and gives me such satisfying results. Obviously, it does not completely hide it because it is a complete clear formula, but this primer blurs it enough for when I apply my foundation, I can not see my pores at all. It leaves that area very smooth and soft and applying makeup over it does not shift the product. My skin completely absorbs it. 
Becca Perfecting Primer 

This primer is very good for oily skin ,I do have oily skin in my T Zone ,so this is very good on my oily areas The moment you dab this product on to your skin, that portion of skin will instantly mattify, so far so good. On this, you apply your  the foundation, you have to ensure that you do not end up moving the layer of primer underneath – else it will pill.
This primer keeps your face matte all through and minimise your pores and keeps your face smooth.I will definitely recommend this primer for oily skin .

How To Apply Primer
Once you’ve found your ideal primer, you need to master the fine art of application. The first rule of primer? Always apply moisturizer before priming, as it makes your primer application even. Wait a few minutes after your application before priming. 
Makeup artist Elle Leary gave us this tip for applying your primer: “A little bit goes a long way. Start in the center of the face and work your way out — you want a light coverage, not heavy.”

Beauty guru Tim Quinn recommends applying with your fingertips or a sponge and avoiding the eye area. Once your primer is on, allow a few minutes for it to set before applying foundation.
So if you never thought of using a primer — or thought they might be too much extra work in your already time-strapped routine — hopefully this has made you reconsider. Because if you want your makeup to go the extra mile, you need to be sure to provide a solid starting line.
