Review: Youth to the People Superfood Air Whip Moisturiser Cream

 Hi everyone,

I have recently been using the Youth to the People Superfood Air Whip Moisturiser Cream as part of my morning skincare routine, and I have really enjoyed using it.

- Is a light, creamy gel like texture that absorbs quickly
- Working to restore, balance & condition all skin types
- Formula smells fresh & clean
- Formulated with antioxidant rich kale & green tea that protect skin with phytonutrients 
- Added Vitamins C, E & K, as well as hyaluronic acid to help draw moisture into the skin and helping the complexion to retain water for a plump, healthy and hydrated complexion.

This was an absolute delight to use as part of morning skincare routine, as not only did it sink into my skin straight away, but it instantly gave my skin a boost of hydration at the same time. I also noticed that I didn't need to use a lot of product for this to be effective. My skin feels plump and really well hydrated thanks to this moisturiser.

This was only a travel size that I tried, and I'm really happy that I tried a travel size of this moisturiser before purchasing the full size; as I think I've found another day time moisturiser that works for me. On the plus side it's also a more natural product, so that's an added bonus. The scent of the moisturiser is also on the natural side, and I'm not going to lie, as it took me around a week to get used to.

If your looking into more natural skincare brands have a look into Youth to the People, and see if you find any products that appeal to you and your skincare needs. I was pleasantly surprised by this moisturiser, and I do want to purchase a full size of this moisturiser once I have gone through a couple of more day time moisturisers that I have in my  back stock.

A Little Beauty Haul 2021

 Hi everyone,

I have recently done a little bit of shopping, and I have stumbled across a couple of items that I have wanted to try for a while. I also went into Manchester for the first time in about 18 months, so that was a nice change of scenery for a little shopping trip.

The White Company 'Seychelles' Range
I have recently treated myself to some of the 'Seychelles' range from The White Company, as it has been years since I have had this fragrance. So, I decided to buy a home candle, hand wash and hand lotion in the same scent. The hand wash and hand lotion came as part of a gift set, but you can also buy these items separately if you wanted too.

OUAI Hair Care Range
I have decided to try a few more haircare products from the OUAI hair care range. I'm already using the Detox shampoo, so this is just a back up bottle for when I'm ready to use it. I've also got the Super Dry Shampoo and the Wave Spray. The Super Dry Shampoo & the Wave Spray are two products from OUAI that I have never used before. Also, the Detox Shampoo & the Super Dry Shampoo where part of a gift set that I had just happen to come across; and it was actually better value for me to buy the gift set as I would have ended spending more if I had purchased the items on an individual basis. The Wave Spray is just a travel size, so then I can try it out and get a feel for the product to see if I like it or not.

Sanctuary Spa White Lily & Damask Rose Range
I've had my eye on this range from Sanctuary Spa ever since it got released a few years ago, and I have never got around to buying it until now. From the White Lily & Damask Rose range I got the body butter, shower gel and also the body lotion. If you ever chance to smell this range from Sanctuary Spa please do, as its one of my absolute favourite ranges that Sanctuary Spa offer.

Giorgio Armani My Way 50ml EDP
I'm not usually a fan of orange blossom scented fragrances, but this fragrance from Giorgio Armani is absolutely delightful. The orange blossom isn't over powering, and because it's blended with other florals it makes it a lighter orange blossom fragrance. This will be lovely to wear during the spring and summer months, due to the lightness of the orange blossom.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation in 'Ecru'
I've caved and brought the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation, as the original Double Wear didn't appeal to me due to it being a heavier foundation. The shade 'Ecru' is the perfect match for my natural skin tone. Also, I don't need to use a lot of this foundation to get the covering I need.

Review: Superdrug B. Hydrated Booster

 Hi everyone,

I have just recently started to the Superdrug B. Hydrated Booster as part of my morning skincare routine. I decided to introduce this into my morning skincare routine as I wanted to try something a little different to a hyaluronic acid serum.

- Boosts hydration to soften and freshen the skin
- Use either on its own or alongside your favourite moisturiser
- Based on the Korean concept of Ampules

Helps to boost hydration due to it containing hyaluronic acid, which is well known for its hydrating skincare benefits

Helps to soften and freshen the skin due to its blend of three Australian super fruits (Burdekin Plum, Illawarra Plum & Kakadu Plum)

I use the Superdrug B. Hydrated Booster as my hyaluronic acid step in my morning skincare routine, and it helps to give my skin a boost of hydration that lasts throughout the day.

It also has a very lightweight formula that sinks into the skin straight away, and makes my skin feel a little more nourished and hydrated.

Also, this is a budget friendly hyaluronic acid as it retails for around £10 but you can sometimes find it it on offer. This is a really good hyaluronic acid, and its brilliant if you are looking to add hyaluronic acid into your skincare routine, but you maybe looking for a budget friendly option. If you are on a budget I would recommend that you get this while its on offer (if its on offer by the time this post goes live).

Review: Superdrug B. Hydrated Leave on Face Mask

 Hi everyone,

I have been using the Superdrug B. Hydrated Leave on Face Mask as part of my evening skincare routine.

- Replenishes, hydrates & comforts
- Instantly boosts skin's hydration, and will leave the skin feeling fully replenished, looking less dry and feeling more comfortable
- Suitable for all skin types

Provides instant hydration due to this leave on face mask containing hyaluronic acid, which helps to lock in moisture and improves the skin's overall comfort

It also helps to improve the appearance of dry and flakey skin due to it containing skin soothing ingredients Squalane and Babassu Oil

This is a lovely budget friendly overnight face mask from Superdrug, as I can certainly notice a difference in the way that my skin feels when I wake up the following morning.

What I have noticed while I have been using this overnight mask is that you don't need to use a lot of product to get the job done. I made this mistake the first time that I used it, and it used way too much. A small amount is more than enough to use; otherwise it takes a while to blend in and sink into the skin.

It does have quite a thick consistency, but it does sink into the skin straight away if you only use a small amount.

I would recommend that you give this leave on face mask a try, especially as it is budget friendly and a little goes a very way. I think it retails for around £8, but you can sometimes find it on offer. It's a gorgeous product to use for anyone looking to add an extra boost of hydration into their evening skincare routine.
