I bet you saw that and thought Hollywood had finally called me? I’m afraid not dear reader a combination of rampant arthritis and the dreaded methotrexate have rendered me achy, with burning muscle pain and a face that was red and itchy, until a few days ago. As I can’t change anything about my achey bones I decided to look for skincare to sort out the beetroot face.
My go to brand in this situation is Dr Haushcka which is guaranteed to settle any inflammation within hours…but thats all it does, there is no real “performance” to them, so I had a little look round our local health food shop and mistakenly (but thank goodness) picked this up……..
This kit contained nothing I actually went out for but it is brilliant! there is a micro bead exfoliant, a mask and a BB cream, there was also a sachet of an overnight treatment. These products are superb, really delivering their promise of increased radiance and a heathy glow. This kit is a little over £30 and is available from lots of online retailers and direct from http://www.renskincare.com.
The next product is from Younique, yes the company that gets quite a lot of attention because of its way of recruiting staff, allegations of a pyramid scheme have been flying around but very rarely do people talk about the products. When a friend of mine started to work for them I knew I wanted to try their star product – Moodstuck 3D fibre lashes…..
Now I struggle with mascara, there’s the sensitivity and the lashes dropping out from the methotrexate, its a struggle, but not anymore and the results are so good here’s a before and after ( apologies for the extreme close up)……….
Here’s the before with very little lashes, and heres the after…..
Amazing! the application is a little bit of a faff, first the transplanting gel, then the fibres, then the gel again, but they all apply like mascara and here’s the best bit it comes off with warm water so I don’t have to scrub at my eyes! Not cheap at £23 but worth it for a bit of glamour! its available from your local Younique presenter.
Finally, and for no good reason other than I had just watched the film Divergent and the quote makes me feel stronger……
This beautiful necklace was made by a lady called Roelene, you can find her on Facebook just search Curiously Charmed.
I promise next week I will have that painting nearly finished!
