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.

Natural deodorants

Hello fam! Everyone loves to smell fresh and good but some spray products might contain a few ingredients that might not be so good for your underarms.

I collected some brand products that offer natural deodorant/s.

Please note that these deodorants don’t stop you from sweating. You shouldn’t stop yourself from sweating. 👇🏻👇🏻

Tarte Clean Queen Vegan deodorant

This is such a huge deodorant it took me nearly a year to use this up and I was also using other products too to try. It is a clay deodorant with lavender scent and it smells amazing also lasts long when you put it on.

Only problem is you might need to take a travel sized version of it with you because it isn’t antiperspirant so you will need to reapply it a bit often. For the scent I get from it I think it is worth it.

Clean Queen deodorant also conditions your underarms, at least that what I noticed, I could use it after a bad shaving rash without my skin getting irritated by it and the rash was gone after hours. – don’t use it as a rash cream though! It is not designed to be that!

Avalon Organics

I love this deodorant, it’s a liquid type, however I still have mixed feelings about it… The reason is it doesn’t last long, the scent does however the liquid is not. Scent is very lemony and for hours I smelt like a lemonade and it makes me feel clean too.

Lush natural deodorant in T’eo

I love this so much. It might sound expensive (£6.50 for 90g) however this lasts the longest I have tried. I really love lemon and lemongrass so this is a go to me and also has tea tree oil in it which I guess makes it antibacterial.

The only down fall to this product though is you can’t use it if you just freshly shaved your armpit because it can irritate your armpit.

FYI: this product is well loved so I do not want to show something in a really bad shape.

Skincare gems

Sometimes there are so many products that can be overlooked because there are just so many to choose from. I’m making this post to introduce a few things I have found or to help you explore something new.

Let’s get started!

Farmacy Coconut Gel hydrating Sheet mask and Green Clean cleansing balm

I came across this brand on Beautylish because when I ordered an item they put a sample in the package by Farmacy.

I got their Green Clean make up meltaway cleansing balm and I really liked it so I ordered the sheet mask above. I bought one for my mum as well. It was so packed with the serum we had to use the both side of the sheets… After the first use we put them in containers (not in the same container!!) and the next day we used it again.

My mum is over 50 so it really showed that she used a moisturiser and it plumped her skin up she really looked younger. I never thought I would say that to her ever but it did work.

I apologise for not having a picture of the sheet mask I completely forgot to document it so, that’s an oopsie on my part, sorry! 😅

Tarte – drink of H2O hydrating boost moisturizer

This is on the pricey side but this product is amazing. It is light weight, minimal scent and it really hydrates my skin after a heavy cleansing “ritual”.

I got my H2O moisturizer in a value pack,because I wasn’t sure if I would like it or hate it with a passion, but I usually buy a set of minis because I like to explore more for my money and it works out cheaper sometimes.

E.l.f Acne fighting spot gel

I love this product because it works quickly, the products I have used before didn’t work this fast as this did. I can just roll it on a spot before going out (on a no makeup day or before a tinted moisturizer) or using it in my routine before bed. It is also sleek so I don’t have to worry about it taking too much space in my bag. Only problem is the fact that it can be a bit drying on the skin so this is why I use it before using any type of moisturizer, and I do recommend doing that way.

Witch hazel

Any brand of Witch Hazel is great for cleaning your skin or wounds. I use it when my dumb ass pops a few spots that should have been left alone…

However it does help in case you mess up your face because you’re a popaholic. It shrinks the spot and the scar if you popped your spot. Sometimes when I get really bad breakouts and the sun is out I put the solution on and let the witch hazel and the sun work their magic.

Before buying any of the products mentioned above I would recommend you to look up the ingredients and/or do a patch test on your neck.
