GLAMGLOW Berryglow Probiotic Recovery Mask

I love indulging in a weekly face mask and tend to go for deep cleansing or exfoliating masks that contain clay and draw out impurities.

That said, when my skin flares up, breaks out or is particularly sensitive I find these types of masks too abrasive and strong for my skin that requires a little more tlc.

This fruity, nourishing and creamy mask features a nutrient dense formulation that works to instantly boost your skins health, gently and effectively restoring radiance.

Perfect for quenching dry, troubled, lifeless skin it contains a blend of Beetroot, Hibiscus and Probiotics to help balance the skin’s microbiome and reinforce its natural moisture barrier.

It features a superfood berry blend of antioxidant rich Goji Berry, Cranberry and Blueberry to nourish your skin with vital vitamins whilst Hyaluronic Acid, Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter take care of deep, plumping and hydration.

This soothing mask is essentially a smoothie for your face!

Upon opening the fabulously fun hot pink pot you’ll notice the delicious aroma of sweet, fresh berries which smells good enough to eat!

Suspended within the rich, creamy mask are tiny berry seeds and the whole mask resembles a delicious yoghurt!

To use, apply an even layer to clean, dry skin and leave for 10 minutes.

For best results use a tissue to smooth off any excess or alternatively rinse and pat dry.

The mask feels like a sumptuous treat to use. Soft, comforting and nourishing it feels like you’re literally feeding your face with berry goodness.

I know I’ve said it before but it really does smell incredible and it is so gentle that even during skin flare ups it didn’t irritate or aggravate.

Actually, I found it helped to cool and soothe my skin and once removed my skin felt wonderfully soft, plumped and hydrated.

No tightness, no stinging, just silky soft, nourished skin that looked and felt instantly more radiant.

I absolutely love this mask and it is the perfect intensive treatment for the forthcoming winter months when your skin can feel stripped of its moisture by heating and cold winds.

GLAMGLOW’S Berryglow Probiotic Recovery Mask is available now from GLAMGLOW.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Foundation

Airbrush Flawless Finish Foundation is the stunning new foundation from Charlotte Tilbury.

Available in a staggering 44 shades, this innovative new foundation offers a weightless, full coverage formula with a natural, matte finish.

Housed within a gorgeous bottle featuring the famous Tilbury rose gold details and cap, this clever foundation offers more than just a flawless finish, it also works to reduce the signs of fine lines and wrinkles by up to 22% in just 8 weeks!

I know, magic right!

Finding a foundation to match your skin tone can often be tricky but thanks to the vast range of shades its never been easier. The shades have also been divided into three separate categories too.

Your overtone is what you see when you look in the mirror while the undertone of your skin is determined by the colour of the veins on the underside of your wrist.

If they are a bluish-purple colour, it means you’re on the cool side, greenish means you are warm and if they look bluish-green, you are likely to need a neutral hue.

By determining the undertone of your skin you can be sure to find the most precise colour match, allowing for a flawless match of foundation shade which then colour syncs to your skin.

It is actually brilliant and is so accurate that once applied, you’d really struggle to notice you’re wearing a foundation at all!

That’s far from all this foundation has to offer though.

The formula contains a ground breaking Magic Replexium complex which works to reduce wrinkles, MossCellTec to boost hydration and AirCool to offer an instant fresh feel on the skin upon application.

It also features a unique C.T. Defence which is designed to limit exposure of your skin to everyday pollutants.

It sounds too be to be true, so how does it actually fare?

Personally, I love a matte foundation as I find it works best at controlling my oily/combination skin and this formula is fabulous as it offers superb coverage without feeling heavy or cakey.

Beautifully lightweight and refreshing it glides across the skin, creating a soft, matte, flawless finish.

It offers such incredible coverage that I’ve actually managed to go without my trusty concealer on many occasions. Yes, really!

It effortlessly blurs pores, evens out skin tone and hides scars, pigmentation and blemishes with ease.

Despite its matte finish it is wonderfully comfortable to wear, providing lost lasting hydration to the skin which helps to keep it looking and feeling plump all day long.

It worked really well at keeping my oily t-zone under control while not clinging to dry patches and after a full days wear it had not melted, transferred or slipped at all, even during the stonking hot heatwave this summer.

I am seriously impressed by this foundation and have not a bad word to say about it.

In terms of its ability to reduce wrinkles, the jury is still out as I’m not yet at the 8 week mark of testing, but I’d certainly say that while wearing it, its soft focus, radiant appearance certainly brings out the best in my skin and helps to hide a multitude of skins.

If you are a fan of fuller coverage foundations you absolutely MUST try this product, it is in my opinion, one of the best I’ve ever tried.


Sudocrem Giveaway

Sometimes, you don’t have to spend a fortune to get an absolutely awesome skincare product.

A high price tag is not always indicative of quality or a products ability to actually work or produce results.

In fact, there is one skincare product which has long been a staple in my beauty regime and will remain so forever and that product is Sudocrem.

For as long as I can remember I have been familiar with that iconic grey tub with the red and white logo. It was in my mother’s medicine cabinet, which was in very regular use throughout my childhood!

Whenever I’d come to her with a graze, sting or bump, she’d be there with her trusty tub of white magic to soothe and repair my usually self-inflicted wounds!

As I grew up, I discovered a multitude of different uses for this antiseptic healing wonder cream which has left me wondering if there is anything that this cream can’t fix!?

One of the main things I found myself using the cream for as a teen was spots.

My teenage years were not kind but I always knew that when I had a painful, red, explosion of spots that my little pot of magic would be there to help soothe and quickly help to reduce the inflammation of breakout.

As an adult, my obsession continued following the birth of my children where I found myself using it daily in the battle against nappy rash!

I’m proud to say I won and neither of my children ever suffered from that nasty, painful infliction, and I put that down entirely to my trusty sidekick, Sudocrem.
