Sleek Distorted Dreams Collection

After the launch of Sleek’s Solstice palette I didn’t think their highlighting game could get any stronger. Then they launched their iridescent Distorted Dreams collection for Summer 2017 and I think everyone’s inner glitter obsession did a little whirl and a squeal of excitement.

The highlighting palette is made up of five shimmery pastel shades in a mixture of cream and powder textures to illuminate eyelids, cheeks and lips. Most excitingly of all the original Matte Me lip shades have been given a makeover with a metallic edge - and just look at how shimmery they are!

Beauty Rocks Tokyo Love Box

I've had a fascination with Japanese beauty products from as long as I can remember, so when the lovely Jamie from Beauty Rocks Blog created her own beauty box based on her travels in Japan, I couldn't wait to take a peek!

Each product has been hand picked by Jamie and her subscription box has an Around The World Theme, focusing on a different different country that is special to her each month. Some of the products in the box I've heard of before but others were completely new to me so I couldn't wait to dive in...

I am a huge fan of Korres; their body ranges are to die for and I am always stocked up on delicious-smelling shower gels and body lotions. I’ve recently started branching into their skincare ranges after being so impressed with the Greek brand and one of their latest launches, the Castanea Arcadia range, certainly doesn’t disappoint.

Exfoliating Pads from Nip + Fab

Nip & Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Pads

Nip & Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Pads

While I generally avoid makeup wipes and any other cleansing wipes because they cause havoc with my skin, these cleansing and exfoliating pads from Nip + Fab are by far an exception to the rule. Usually, when I think of exfoliation I think of face scrubs, but I'm now starting to introduce different ways of exfoliating my skin to my routine, including peels, creams, and toners, and these generally have a much better effect on my skin - without being as harsh!

One of the quick and easy ways to exfoliate skin is using these pads from Nip + Fab. They have an entire range for different skin types and are one of the most purse-friendly I have come across.

The Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads come in a pack of 60, which are soaked in exfoliating glycolic acid (2.8%) to retexture the skin. They also contain witch hazel, which tones the skin and also works wonders on spots and blemishes. For a stronger exfoliant, the night time pads are more potent and have a higher consistency of glycolic acid (5%), making them the ultimate night time treatment to refine pores, brighten and decongest skin while you sleep. 

Because the night time pads are so strong you should only use one around two or three times a week. I personally prefer the night time pads because they get to work a lot quicker and are hugely beneficial, particularly with clearing up spots.

Top Brightening Skincare Products

Weeks of getting a lack of sleep, wearing makeup and letting product build up on my face means my skin is often looking pretty dull and tired. Recently I've tried to get in the habit of looking after it properly and doing weekly masks and scrubs to get it tip top condition. I've been using products filled with Vitamin C to give my skin a little boost and here are some of my top picks that I've been loving recently:

Pixi Wakeup Skin Mist I did a post all about Pixi's range of skin mists, which you can read here, and I love the Wakeup Mist because it wakes my skin up first thing in the morning. I've been using it as a toner and spritz it all over my face to revitalize and awaken my skin. Available here

Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Reviver When I bought this last year I had no idea just how much I would love it. In my opinion this product is seriously underrated because it's become one of my daily skincare heroes. This radiance booster can be applied either alone or after moisturiser as a primer. It completely smooths out skin, brightens, and gives a silky finish ready to apply makeup!

Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Microdermabrasion This exfoliating scrub is very fine so I use it more as a treatment every one to two weeks rather than a regular face scrub. It helps to get rid of dead skin cells and sweep away any impurities to leave skin glowing.  

Clinique Fresh Pressed Daily Booster This new range from Clinique contains pure, high concentration Vitamin C to give skin a boost. These little skincare boosters act as a skincare supplement. Just add two drops to your regular moisturiser and apply morning and evening to top up radiance & brightening levels and up your anti ageing routine!

Murad Intensive C Radiance Peel A while back I went for a facial at the Spa Experience spa within Better leisure centre near Kensington. I was introduced to Murad products and one of their bestsellers, the Intensive C Radiance Peel. Unlike other exfoliators it isn't a scrub, you just leave it on the skin and you will start to feel it tingling and getting to work to reveal brighter skin. My skin can often be quite delicate so I love that isn't as harsh as other treatments. This is particularly great for people that live in cities as it helps to reduce environmental ageing and damage. Available here.
