My Current Must-Haves
Hey everyone! I’m finally back in Paris after my trip to Portugal and back to the grind again. Now that summer is drawing to a close I can’t help but wish these long days of freedom could just last forever. I’ve been having a hard time accepting that the back to school season has already started up for so many of you and next week it will finally be my turn to take up my studies again too. That being said though, I’ve been having a lot of fun doing some last minute back to school shopping, especially where beauty is concerned. Today I thought I’d share my top beauty picks from Sephora with you guys. While most of them fall into the category of Korean skincare (surprise, surprise) I did throw a few makeup favourites in there too! Let’s start.
What I Bought In The Sales
Now that the January sales are in full here swing in Paris, I really couldn’t wait to show you guys some new skin care products and makeup that I recently got to try. If you follow me over on my Instagram then you’ve probably already heard some of my thoughts on these through my vlogs. However today I thought I’d write a blogpost so that I could talk to you about these in a little more detail.
A Post All About Sheet Masks
As many of you know I recently moved from Ireland to France and ever since I first landed in Paris I’ve been utterly enamoured with the influence of the beauty industry over here. It seems as if everywhere you turn there’s a Dior or a Chanel counter to be found, and better yet, there’s a Sephora around almost every corner. Now don’t ask me why we don’t have this beauty-haven of a franchise over in Ireland. It just never came our way for whatever reason, so you can only imagine my delight going in to spend my time scouring the beauty counters for the big brands that are often hard to stumble upon back home.
Of course I went a little crazy when I saw that Sephora had their own line of sheet masks available so today I thought I would grab a few to try out and share my thoughts on them with you. Now I know I’m probably a little late to the party here, but as I said, these masks just don’t exist over in Ireland so I was really curious to see what they would be like. Read More
Out of the Dark…
Deep cleansing, softening and nourishing, these three words pretty much sum up what the Lush Dark Angels cleanser has to offer. Powdered charcoal helps to remove dirt and toxins clogged deep beneath the skin’s surface, gently exfoliate (with the help of some black sugar) while simultaneously removing excess oils and sebum.
The idea of this cleanser was just so exciting to me -creating brighter, younger, livelier skin from something dark. Obviously then when I spotted this at lush, I couldn’t wait to try it out. Nevertheless, charcoal is known to be a well proven effective ingredient when it comes to drawing out bacteria, poisons, chemicals and other damaging micro-particles from the skin. Fundamentally its a magnet that removes all of the really deep-set crap from your pores. And the best part is that while the charcoal cleanses from the inside out, nourishing avocado oil in the mask helps to restore life, radiance and softness to dull skin.
