Skincare gems part 2

Hello fam! I thought do a second part on this topic because I might have found some dupes if you do not wanna spend much on a moisturiser or you’re just simply in a tight budget and of course some higher priced products.

Let’s continue then!

Superdrug Naturally Radiant 2 in 1 moisturizer and serum

This little fella might just be a dupe for Tarte’s drink of H2O moisturizer. It is also super light weight and has a touch of kiwi scent to it. I used this multiple times and it never failed me nor my face! Obviously if you have a very sensitive skin like my boyfriend I wouldn’t recommend you to put it close to your eye area. – long story, you don’t wanna know. 😅

I also have sensitive skin but I didn’t have any reaction he experienced. However it was his first time ever trying something like this out.

FYI: he is even allergic to his favourite hair gel but still keeps using it. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Aloe Vera gel

You don’t have to buy the plant itself if you don’t want to however they do grow fast. I have both the plant and some in the tube. I use aloe vera for my skin, stretch marks, my scalp and my hair. It gives my curls back that I straightened out over the years. It is not a magical wonder product but if you keep using it, it might give you your curls back.

E.l.f eye refresh roller

This is a life saver for me because if my sleep pattern is disturbed even if it is just a tiny bit it shows on my face and under eye area… So thank you e.l.f for saving my under eye area.

Before the first use, I rolled it on my neck to see if it would cause any irritations, which it didn’t howere you need to make sure to do a patch test first just incase.

Superdrug Vitamin C booster drops

I know it might sound like I have a sponsorship with superdrug but in reality I actually don’t! If I did I would have said so!

About the product. For a booster it is really light weight and my skin sucked it up quickly even when I used other moisturizer before, usually my skin does not let everything in itself so for me this was a good sign. It has a nice scent however it is minimal so you will not be irritated by it!

I have been using this product for a couple of days now, my skin is moisturised but it is easier to keep a skin of a 22-year-old hydrated than restore the hydration of someone’s skin who is in their 50s.

Which gave me an excellent idea and opportunity to try this product on my mother’s face and we will see the results in 2 weeks. If we will see some.

FYI: I personally use this for my uneven skin tone.

Other indie makeup brands you might have not heard of

In my previous post I was talking about indie brands that deserved more love an attention.

This post is also an extention for expending the list but still keeping it separate without making one post extremely long.

Let’s continue, shall we?

Blackmoon Cosmetics is a cruelty-free brand vegan cosmetics brand. It has a dark quirky theme to it which makes me feel like everyday is Halloween (one of my favourite holidays by the way), however they have subtle options if you are not into those quirky shades.

Their highlighters are amazing! They have multiple colours and they have everyday shades as well as crazy shades. They come in a nice black compact btw.

Chaos Makeup is also a cruelty-free and vegan brand and they also have many options of highlighters that you can actually use on your mouth, face and body. (exclusions may apply and check it in their website)

They also have shadows, blends and loose pigments, they used to have lipsticks but I don’t see them anymore unfortunately. 😔

However they have chrome shadows that a super pigmented!

They also have really great prices, however they are based in the U.S., like Blackmoon Cosmetics.

BeedumplingCosmetics is an etsy shop and they do handmade cosmetics. The shop does it’s own research and they also have so many items to choose from!

I personally like the shadows, I have ginger chai and it is such an amazing shadow!

However if you live in the UK you would have to pay for shipping and if your order is above $20 you would have to pay custom fees. This is how it works unfortunately but their products worth the try!

Disclaimer : I am not a professional makeup artist however I recommend products and brands because of what I experienced. I am not sponsored by any of the brands mentioned above.

Sorry I didn’t include the pictures of the products mentioned that I own, unfortunately they are not in a good shape to be taken pictures of. I will update the post when I get the new ones!

Pictures will come soon!
