I hardly have any time to blog these days, so I figured it would be best to do some compilation posts. So here goes!
Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Acid Pads (£5.99)
Since acid pads are all the range I thought I could buy these cheap as chips Glycolic acid pads to try.
These are supposed to leave your skin feeling fresh and remove dead skin etc.
I have nearly finished this tub and I do think they have a gentle exfoliating acton, HOWEVER I am not convinced that they make that much of a difference over all. Never the less, I like having refreshing pads to use for freshening up the skin so I will buy these again – they are also good if I can’t be bothered using toner.
2. Crest White 3D Strips (£44.99)
I don’t whiten my teeth constantly, only for special occasions unless I think they are looking really bad. The fact is there aren’t that many effective and safe options on the high street – some simply don’t work.
The Crest white strips I find do work for me – within 5 days I see an improvement in the colour of my teeth. Also as these are gentle action ones I didn’t feel any pain on my gums (which I used to with strips).
You only have to leave the strips on for 5 minutes at a time too.
3. Jouer Lip Topper – Skinny Dip (£13.50).
I have a thing for lip glitters shimmery shades so I had to try this product from Jouer, known as a lip topper.
This can be worn alone or on top of a lip colour. It smells of vanilla and has a smooth texture – the description says it is light weight but I would say it’s about the same as an average gloss.
Skinny dip is a white shade with multi sparkle glitter.
Whilst I like the texture and scent of this there’s something things I don’t like – the shade is medium rather than sheer which means it leaves me lips too white and ghostly.
Also the glitter is super apparently when switched but not as much on the lips unless you are in the sun light.
4. Jolene Cream Bleach (around £5)
I was sent a sample of this and I was immediately returned to my teen years.
Honestly – back in the day people used to us this as hair highlighter (in my school!) or people would use this and leave it on for so long that they had red rashes on their faces for days.
I decided to use this on my upper lip instead of removing the hair. I mixed up the powder and the white mousse together – I found it made my skin a little itchy but the discomfort disappeared eventually.
It’s all ok to bleach the hair but I do think removing it altogether looks better. This is great for bleaching eyebrows when you have lightened your hair though.
5. Ytsara Urban Shield Serum (£55)
This serum is kind of pricey – it’s supposed to work to protect the skin against daily aggressors like stress, sun damage and pollution (you still need to use a SPF).
This serum is a really lovely light texture, it’s quite runny so you only need to use one pump. I liked to use this after washing but under a thicker cream or oil as alone, it wasn’t hydrating enough to last all day. I liked this as an extra layer of protection – I don’t know if it actually worked or not, but it helped seal in extra moisture of busy or hot days.
That super light texture:
