Five Friday Favourites

Beauty

I’m a little late on the January Favourites post so I thought I would just share 5 items I am loving right now…

Glossier Haloscope Highlighter Quartz

I have literally been obsessed with this highlighter, I have worn it EVERY SINGLE DAY! I never thought I would love a cream highlighter as much as Haloscope, it creates a really natural glow to your face making it look like a glow from within. I apply this as the last step in my routine on my cheek bones, cupid bow, brow arch and in the centre of my brows.

Chloe Lewis Lipstick Lady Love

I received this beautiful lipstick from Chloe Wise Beauty and boy, is it good! I didn’t expect to find a lipstick (other than MAC Fashion Legacy) that could last for hours without fading and needing to be reapplied. It is a matte finish and lasts a real long time compared to normal lipsticks.

Indeed Retinal Reface

I was recently sent Retinal Reface by Bux and Bewl to try out, I was a little reluctant to try this as I was really worried that retinal would be to strong for skin and react bad, this however is not the case. I have been using this every night for two weeks and I’m pretty sure I can notice a difference, my skin seems a lot softer and smoother! I also really love the packaging as this makes it super easy to take travelling and not worry about bottles smashing.

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Selfie Sculpt

A brow product I have been loving for quite a while now is from Tanya Burr Cosmetics, on days where I want a more defined brow I use this to create the desired look. It applies really well, it doesn’t create really harsh lines and it is really easy to build up colour if wanted. Another great thing about this product is that it is double ended, having a spooly on your eye brow pencil really is a game changer.

Skin + Earth Black Charcoal + Liquorice Face Mask

Finally, the brand Skin + Earth were kind enough to send me a face mask and face scrub to try out. I am a huge mask user so of course this has to make it into my top five, I find this mask so refreshing and kind to my skin as it contains natural ingredients. This has become my favourite mask at the moment and it makes me sad thinking that one day I am going to run out of it!

What products have you been loving at the moment? Let me know in the comments below.

Current Skincare Routine

Beauty

Hey! Today I’m sharing my current evening skincare routine as I have recently been trying out some new products and they deserve a huge shout out! Don’t forget you can follow me on Instagram @toriiitoriii where I post skincare routines a few times a week!

Cleanse

To remove my make up I use Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser, this is great at removing make up and making sure your face is completely clean before moving on to the next step. I then use 3 more pumps and do a double cleanse just to make sure all my makeup if gone!

Scrub/Mask

The lovely brand Skin + Earth were kind enough to send me one a black charcoal + liquorice face mask and face scrub, at the moment I use then on alternate days as my skin is definitely loving them!

Tone

Recently I have been loving these Glycolic Acid Cleansing Pads from Superdrug as I have just ran out of The Ordinary Glycolic toner. These are really quick and easy to use and they are also on the less expensive side! These are also great for taking on holiday!

Serum

A serum which I have been loving over the past month is retinal reface by Indeed Labs, this was kindly sent to me to try out. This has already improved my skin, it is so much softer and the lines I have on my forehead are less noticeable (I’ve had these lines since I was a teenager).

Moisturise

I have been loving two moisturisers. The first is the Glossier Moon Mask, I use this as an over night treatment instead of how you are meant to use it. It leaves my skin baby soft the next morning and fully hydrated. Secondly, I have been using the Sesderma Factor G Renew Facial, I have nearly used up the whole pot of this already!

Extra

Lastly, on nights where I need an extra boost of hydration I use the Neil’s Yard Wild Rose Beauty Balm on my forehead, under eyes and lips to add extra moisture over night.

What are your current skincare faves?
