In case you haven’t heard of them yet, Pestle & Mortar are an Irish-based skincare brand. They initially caught my attention due to their minimalistic approach to skincare as well as their chic packaging. The company prides itself on a capsule range of skincare products mixing together both science and nature. Beauty products are so complicated these days with so many steps and so many life-changing promises… it’s refreshing to find a brand with an ultra-minimalist style that’s purely based on driven results and efficacy.
Oh Mintd Box, how I have missed receiving you. If you were not aware I went through some pretty hard times throughout the summer months and I just couldn’t commit to reviewing any beauty boxes, or any kind of blogging at all. Especially as I hate letting people down. Trying to get back into the swing of things is still proving difficult, but not putting so much pressure on myself is definitely helping. It’s always a pleasure receiving Mintd boxes and this months ‘Ultimate Winter Skincare Guide Box’ for the month of November is no exception. I’m still very much enjoying the tea and eye cubes from the previous Mintd box I reviewed, and even more so now that the colder weather is here. I am one of those people who absolutely love’s the cold weather! Despite not having the best health throughout those months. So looking for health and beauty products that will soothe my body both inside and out is incredibly important. So, I was excited to see many wonderful products in this months box to help me battle the winter cold…..
This is the 2nd instalment of my Summer Skincare Routine. Click here to head over to my ‘My Summer 2017 Morning Skincare Routine’ blogpost, where I explain more about my skin type and why I opt for the products I use. This post is all about the skincare I use at night….
Some of the most frequently asked questions I receive are 1. What are my favourite skincare products? 2. What are my most used skincare products, and 3. What products do I use to achieve the healthy glow I currently have? So I thought I would share on here the routine I followed all summer, starting with my morning routine as it was the most consistent. I did test out other products from time to time but always came back to these products. During the day I tend to focus mostly on hydration and blemish control in the summer and exfoliation and more targeted treatments in the colder months. This is why my skincare routine can change depending on the season and how my skin is at that time. I don’t think it is any one particular product alone that has helped my skin, but rather a concoction of products that have worked simultaneously together to help me achieve the healthy glowy skin I have today.
As of recent I have been quite the creature of comfort when it comes to the makeup products I use on the daily. I mean if it works and it isn’t broken, why fix it, right? For a while there I didn’t even wear eyeshadow for months! I think I just lost passion in it and became too lazy to want to do my eyeshadow – ugh #hoodedeyeproblems. However I’ve had many of you ask me what products have been giving my face the glow it currently has this summer, so I thought I would share a few posts with you. Starting with the makeup edition and following up with skincare….
If you have followed me for some time then you will already know how passionate I feel about both Amly Botanicals face mists. So, of course, I wanted to share my love for their products and Amly as a brand, here on my new blog. I am going to start off by explaining a little more about the founders behind Amly Botanicals, their ethos and how they came about. Then share my review on both of the face mists……
