As part of my self improvement, turning 40 and just really wanting to look after myself a bit more, I thought I would try out a new regime and in turn, teach the eldest about having a bit of a routine for when she starts (should she choose to), wearing make up.
I was lucky enough to be given two products to try out and I have to say that I really liked them a lot and will be using them in the future,especially after seeing the results and costing isn’t high at all compared to a lot of other high street brands.
I’ve been pretty lucky with my skin and apart from the occasional breakout once a month when due my period, water has been my saving grace. That’s it. I don’t buy into the heavy and expensive brands because to be honest, its a load of rubbish and a waste of money. In reality, we are paying for the advertising costs and a life style that they want us to think we want. I got wise to that a long time ago and as a feminist it isn’t within my belief system.
One thing I do participate in though is a good face mask because I like to soak in the bath with the candles, have some relaxing music on, a book and have some time to myself. It’s one of the few things that I will indulge in because I like how it makes me feel. The coolness of the mask followed by the softness on my skin thereafter, is a really nice feeling and my face does feel more firm as well. I think it might be something that I’ll be introducing to my clients when doing facial treatments because of how indulgent it is and the one that was sent to me was the Skin Republic Collagen Infusion, Mask which if you purchase in Superdrug, is £4.99
The other product that I was sent, was the really lovely Nouveau Lashes Enhance Mascara. It was so much better than getting fake lashes applied and as its completely natural you don’t look like you have spiders glued to your eyes! Although these come in at a cost of £18.99, it usually costs more than that to have lashes done in your local salon by someone who is very inexperienced and you end up removing them anyway! The great thing about the wand is that there are two sides where one separates for a much more dramatic look and the other side is used to apply the mascara.
These products are perfect for someone like me who doesn’t wear a lot of make up but does like to treat herself now and again, with minimal effort and likes the affordability, and the reliability of the products that I buy.
