I recently came across the Elemis Pro-Radiance range.
I’m currently using the Cream Cleanser and the Illuminating Flash Balm, and I love both.
The Cleanser can be applied straight on over makeup, you massage just a small amount all over your face, no water required, leave for a few minutes, and then remove with a facecloth.
My skin feels so soft afterwards, and really clean, it’s like a mini facial!
The Flash Balm is lovely on, again just a small amount, applied to a clean face. This can be used as your daily moisturiser, a radiance booster, or even as a primer over your regular moisturiser.
I just love the glow it gives my skin, and it’s not at all oily, which is often a big issue for me in moisturisers, but this is divine!
You can get these beauty essentials here.
Until next time, happy shopping!
I’m sure many of you are already aware that Bio Oil is pretty much an absolute essential during pregnancy, but on the off chance that you didn’t know…if you are pregnant, you need this, and sooner rather than later!
As the ad says “Bio‑Oil is a specialist skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone.”
I’m a HUGE fan! I’ve been using it since the start of my pregnancy, and so far so good, no stretch marks🙌🏻 Now I’ve still got ages to go, so I’m not in the clear yet, but I definitely think it’s helped.
You can get Bio Oil in loads of places, pretty much all Pharmacies and Penneys also stock it.
You should use it daily, all over bump, and don’t forget your back and sides – which can also be prone to stretch marks.
It also leaves your skin incredibly soft, so it’s a win win ladies!
It’s also really important to remain hydrated during pregnancy, for a whole host of very good reasons, avoiding stretch marks being just one, so keep drinking that water dolls!
This is the first of my Pregnancy Essentials posts. I’ll use these posts to share anything that I’ve found helpful during my own pregnancy.
First of all, you will start expanding. I know, it’s brilliant and horrifying all at the same time. All you can do is try and look your best while it’s happening!
Molly Jeans are an absolute essential in my book, ladies! They are a great fit for before you start to expand, and they will be your best friend as you do start to grow. They are so comfy, stretchy, and they are mid waisted, the perfect combo! If you’re early on, buy them in your normal size, you will get months out of them, and they will be brilliant afterwards too! If you are half ways along, get them in one size up.
These are my favourites, and all are available here from River Island.
