Skincare | First Impressions On A Few New Products

(L-R) Alpha H Liquid Gold, Avene Cleansing Cream and Avene Light Hydrating Cream

Since I upload this updated skincare routine on my youtube channel, I have inconveniently   discovered three new products that have now become firm favourites of mine. 

Alpha H Liquid Gold - £31.50
I purchased this online whilst I was on holiday as I was desperate to have it in my possession by the time I got home! I have now been using it every other night for the past two weeks and I have really been enjoying it. I have noticed that overall, the redness on my face has gone down and my acne scarring has decreased slightly. Obviously these are only first impressions so I will be doing a full review of this treatment in the next few months. 

Avene Clean- Ac Cleansing Cream - £13.50
This is by far my favourite product that I've purchased as it has made such a big difference to my skin and I can't recommend it enough! It has decreased the amount of blemishes that have been appearing on my face and again, has also minimised the redness that was previously present on my face. I use this both in the morning and at night-time and this is the only cleanser that I have found I can do this with. It is great at removing every single scrap of makeup that is present on my face and doesn't leave a residue on my skin like the NO7 Melting Gel Cleanser did. I also find this very refreshing to use in the morning too. 

Avene Light Hydrating Cream - £10.97 
I picked this up in Portugal along with the cleanser as I had only brought my morning moisturiser with me (Avene Redness Relief Emulsion) and needed something nice and hydrating to use at night. I am so glad that I picked this one up as it is nice and moisturising with a lot of hydration in it but it's not too thick that it makes me feel oily at all. I also love this product because it is so soothing and cool on the skin and I really like the way it feels when I'm applying it.

So as you can tell, I really love these three products that I've added into my skincare routine recently and I'm also extremely happy that I have discovered Avene products as they're probably one of the best skincare brands I have ever dabbled into!

Beauty | Review: Stila One Step Correcting Primer

Stila One Step Correcting Primer - £24

I got this primer for christmas last year and to start with, I wasn't entirely mad on it because I found that it got used up incredibly quickly and because it's quite expensive, I didn't like that. Now, I don't know if it was just me using too much product but over the past few months, that problem doesn't seem to be present anymore. 

"Does it help to improve the lasting power of my makeup?" is the question that I hear you all asking! In my opinion, yes. I feel as though this adds on an extra hour or so onto the wear of my makeup. I am one of those people that uses primer religiously every single day and I couldn't be without it so I would say this is defiantly a favourite for me. 

However, the thing that I like the most about this primer, is the light consistency and how it feels when it is applied to the skin as some primers can be way too heavy and feel like their adding on a whole other layer which just makes everything so much thicker and heavier. 

Another aspect that I like about this primer is the triple swirl helix with the three different colours that counter-act the pigments that are not so welcome on our faces! I really think that this creates a nice smooth base for the foundation to go onto and feel that even though it doesn't make everything absolutely flawless and perfect, it gives some kind of correction and I really like that! 


Overall, I'd defiantly say that this is my favourite primer that I currently own, however I feel as though The Present Primer by Philosophy may be a little bit better but it is a little heavier on the skin so I do love this one! 

Do you use primer?

Beauty | My Favourite Summer Scent

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy - 50ml - £46

I brought this perfume last year in duty free when I was on my way back from holiday and I absolutely love it. I am at the very bottom of it now and it just reminds me of last summer so much which is great because last summer was amazing and was the time I met Bradley (Aw!)!

So, onto the scent, it is a rich scent as all of my favourite perfumes seem to be like. It's top notes include wild berries, Mandarins, Honeysuckle, Gardenia, and Jasmine and it's warm tones include Amber, Caramel, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Praline. I find it to be very sexy, girly and sweet which is great for the summer but also I find that it is defiantly a scent that can be pulled off throughout the entire year so even though it is on the expensive side, you're still getting your full money's worth!

Even though I don't find this perfume to last that long on my skin, (maybe 2 to 3 hours max) I love it so much that I don't really care! I will just get to look at the beautiful packaging even more by spraying it extra! 

Overall, I love this and would seriously recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new perfume and as I said, it's not only a summer fragrance, it can be used all year round, it's just perfect! Also, even though it is on the more expensive side, I would say that this perfume has lasted me more than a year and I do use it very often! 

What's your summer fragrance?
