March Beauty

Hi all. 3 completely wicked products this month. None of them crazy money and all completely fab.

  • The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. ยฃ11.20.

In my constant quest to look like I have had 8 hours sleep when in fact I have had 5, this stuff from The Ordinary is the business. ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿคฉ Itโ€™s cheap, it works and it lasts yonks. As with all peels, donโ€™t go crazy…once, twice a week and donโ€™t follow it with your glycolic toner, retinol serum etc. I read a review on Amazon of a lady who used it every night…Iโ€™m convinced she looks like Anjelica Huston in The Witches….sans mask! ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธA couple of words of warning…………………

1. It tingles a little. Donโ€™t be alarmed. Man up!

2. When the peel is on it looks like you have smeared your face in the blood of vestal virgins. Maybe donโ€™t apply when there is any danger that the postman will knock at the door. This is without a doubt a nighttime ritual when the blinds are down and you are alone. โš ๏ธโš ๏ธโš ๏ธโš ๏ธโš ๏ธโš ๏ธโš ๏ธโš ๏ธโš ๏ธ Anyway, it works. In fact I just did the school run without make up. Am still wearing massive ๐Ÿ•ถ – it doesnโ€™t eliminate eye bags but my skin is clearer, sun spots reduced and open pores….what pores???

  • Hask Purifying Deep Conditioner with charcoal and citrus oil.
  • Boots. ยฃ2.99.

I have to admit that I am pretty good about maintaining my hair cut and colour. This shouldn’t really be a boast as since my amazing hairdresser has moved to Leeds, she hops on the megabus every 6 weeks (๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช๐Ÿš๐Ÿš๐Ÿš) and comes to London to do a handful of haircuts for clients. Brilliantly for me, this involves minimal effort. I can sit in my kitchen in my pjs, safe in the knowledge that my whole family are queuing up in a production line to get their hair done without leaving the comfort of our own home. Lazy, lazy, lazy. I actually live in fear for the day that will surely come when Elthia wakes up, wonders what the hell she is doing, decides not to board the megabus at 5 in the morning for a 6 hour journey and we never see her again. This day will happen and I will have stop being a lazy bitch and drag my family to a salon!

So, as I say, my colour and cut are always pretty up to date. The condition of my hair is unfortunately crap!!! I received this hair mask in a beauty box and it’s brill. Bloody everything has charcoal in nowadays doesn’t it? I was a little concerned before opening that it would stain my blonde hair but as you can see, it doesn’t really have a colour. It smells really citrusy which I love and is absolutely fine to use on coloured hair. I particularly like the fact that’s it’s purifying so it removes all the product build-up (a lot of dry shampoo and hairspray) and leaves my hair feeling baby soft and with a new lease of life! You can buy this little packet of Joy for just ยฃ2.99 from Boots. My hair is chin length and the packet has lasted 3 washes which is great. Defo worth a try.

    Kate McIver Secret Weapon Serum. ยฃ34.99.

Woohooo! Another beautiful product that works like a dream. Secret Weapon Serum by Kate McIver. ๐ŸŒŸโค๏ธ๐ŸŒŸโค๏ธ๐ŸŒŸโค๏ธ๐ŸŒŸโค๏ธ๐ŸŒŸโค๏ธIn 2016, Kate was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Treatment left her skin dull and dry. Using her knowledge from her job in skin aesthetics, she decided to make a product that would give women their confidence back. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™ŒThe Serum is oil based so it instantly feels hydrating and really pampering. It contains borage, rosehip and evening primrose which contain fatty acids to develop healthy skin. These 3 ingredients contain Gamma linolenic acid (GLA) which encourages the production of collagen and elastin which fight wrinkles and encourage that โ€˜well -rested-glowโ€™ something I am always on the hunt for. All natural, no harsh chemicals and suitable for vegans. Itโ€™s honestly totally gorgeous and if your tired, dull, dehydrated skin needs a treat you should try it. ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž

Anyway thanks for reading. See y’all next month .
