Some of you may have noticed that there was no Skincare Shake Up post last month. I ended up extending my holiday in France at the last minute and by the time I got back into London I had missed the beginning of the month change over. I didn’t want to try out products for less than a month because I like to give things a proper test, so I just started my new skincare routine when I got home and tried it out for half of July and all of August instead. And here is that routine in full…
Every couple of months, those of us who love skincare get very excited… yep, it’s time for the Escentual French pharmacy sale! Amazing products with up to 1/3 off – what’s not to love? I’ve picked my favourite products below, to save you wading through pages and giving up in frustration. Don’t say I never give you anything!
If you follow my blog you will know that I am a huge fan of full coverage make up. My rosacea redness makes me very self-conscious and I feel more like myself when I know I can apply a full face of make up. But I know that not everyone can (or wants to) wear a lot of make up. So I have pulled together the products that would work as a rosacea cover ups for men and those who prefer a lighter look.
If you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t, you can rectify that HERE), you will have seen me post a no-make-up selfie after a facial last week. For people with sensitive skin or rosacea, the idea of having a facial can be a scary one. You have to think about the products they will use (a lot of ingredients can cause flare ups), how much force they will use, how warm the room will be. There are a lot of factors! I also don’t usually like having facials as you aren’t supposed to apply make up for at least 8 hours afterwards. So having a full time job means that the only time I can have a facial is at the weekend and I personally don’t feel comfortable wandering around at the weekend with no make up on.
