I have loved Avène for a long time: they are a sensitive-skinned girl’s best friend so if you haven’t tried them out already, jump to it! I was invited to the launch of this exciting new product: Avène PhysioLift Anti Ageing skincare for sensitive skin*. If you have sensitive/rosacea prone skin like me, you will know the struggle to find skincare that really *works*, without aggravating your skin.
If you’ve followed me for a while, you will know that I try out a lot of skincare: I have a few staple products that I rely on and return to when my rosacea is flaring up, but I am essentially a fickle person. I always wonder what else out there and am constantly searching for the next product to introduce to the skincare hall of fame. So I’m going to start doing a Skincare Shake Up post, roughly every month.
The slogan of my blog might as well be “…I don’t even *like* blue nail varnish!” If you’ve seen my huge nail varnish sort and destash video you will have witnessed my utter confusion at how I’ve managed to accumulate such a large amount of blue nail varnishes when I (claim that I) don’t even like blue nail varnish on me. So this cobalt nail varnish comparison post is a bit of a shock to me too!
I am a huge fan of essie polishes, they’re probably one of my favourite nail varnish brands. Gorgeous colours, wide brushes that make application a dream, and chip-resistant formula that means I can easily go 10 days without any flaws. So news of their brand new topcoat was met with much excitement. There are a few ‘gel finish’ topcoats and nail varnish ranges out there at the moment (applause for Barry M in particular, stink eye to the Revlon gel top coat which never EVER dried) so it was only a matter of time before essie released one. And here it is: Essie Gel Setter Top Coat!
Until I met the MoYou ladies I had never tried nail stamping – I know, what a terrible nail blogger! I had seen amazing, intricate nail designs and always wanted to get involved but never made the leap. But when I went to a blogging event and saw the MoYou stand I was drawn like a moth to the brightly coloured flame.
