My new Perfect Cleanse

It's official I have found my perfect cleanser.. Oh wait, it's meant to be for my professional kit to use on my clients before makeup application.. Hmmm I'll get another.

Last night I tested the Perfect Cleanse Omega Cleansing Jelly by Nude Skincare for the very first time, and I'm so glad I did. I really tested this product to the max, having a full face of makeup on with gel eyeliner and waterproof mascara this product needed to be pretty special to remove all that...

I squeezed the tiniest amount out of the light mauve tube onto my fingertips, a gel type jelly and spread onto my fingertips on my right hand.. I could see this tiniest amount of product suddenly expanding into what I can describe as a silky gel serum oil. I started to massage this jelly formula into my skin then BAM.. I added water to my face as you do and this jelly/serum/oil texture turned into a soft creamy milk..this tiniest amount of product covered my whole face and eyes and I felt the heavy makeup underneath melting away. I must of spent a good 3 minutes massaging my face because the product just felt so damn good on my skin!

I rinsed away with warm water and NOT to my shock all my heavy makeup had been removed. My skin was clear and felt so smooth, it didn't feel tight just soft and fresh. I quickly added some moisturiser and headed straight onto the Internet to do some research on this product.

What I found out was just as amazing...

My Perfect cleanse is rooted in so much nutrition for the skin. Containing sunflower oil, which is rich in omegas 6 & 9 it nourishes and protects the skin while gently removing dirt & impurities while the Great Burdock root Extract moisturisers the dry areas and purifies the oily areas. There's even Annato seed extract added in to strengthen and shield the skin from daily stressors.

There's so much more in this product that is fabulous for our skin as well as not containing any harmful substances.

We need good nutrients for our body why not have it for our skin also!!

2015 Beauty Highlights

I would like to start the new year by sharing one of my most enjoyable highlights from last year.....Enjoy and don't forget to pop back next week to read all about my favourite beauty products entering 2016 with me.

In July 2015 I had the pleasure to travel to Florence Italy, to provide makeup and hair for an editorial shoot.

The concept of the shoot was to experience the unknown streets of Florence and experience it from the eyes of a local girl going about her day to day life and day dreaming about her dreams. This local girl, played by Charli, is able to keep her dreams alive of being a royal princess as well as showing her everyday life as she cycles down the street, takes a ride in her chariot or visits in a local park.

The era was not to be present day but a mixture of 50s, 40s and 20s. This was achieved by mixing up wardrobe, hair and make-up looks from the different eras to create our final look.

Flawless Morning Skin

beauty sleep

This is the season to party, and all those late night partying leaves your skin looking tired. And the last thing you want, waking up after a great night is tired looking skin. So why not let your products take the night shift. Why not give these products a try this party season?

A good night cream recovers and moisturizers. The new Miracle sleeping cream from Garnier does just that, with its self-smoothing texture it envelops the skin and visibly helps to reduce the signs of fatigue while you sleep.

For best results, especially during this crazy party season, use it every night for skin that looks refreshed and less tired.

Overnight mask is one of the best ways to wake up with beautifully refreshed skin. Garnier’s Miracle Wake Up Cream serves as an overnight mask. It re-awakens your skin revealing radiant, soft and youthful looking skin morning after morning.

“Remove all make-up & cleanse skin to wake up with well-hydrated skin”

As far as Serums goes the number one serum, for me will always be Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II. After the first night of using it you will wake up to more beautiful looking skin.
