face scrubs : clean & clear vs soap & glory | EG♡

I have searched for products that suit my skin for a while. There are many rumours that scrubs are bad for your skin, but I cant help but use them. They leave my skin feeling clean and soft and looking fresher. Recently I have tried out the soap & glory “scrub of your life” after always using the clean & clear “exfoliating daily wash”. Here’s my verdict.

  
Clean & Clear exfoliating daily wash

This has been my number one face product for a long time and really does make a difference. It leaves my skin feeling soft and looking clear. The packaging is nice and easy to use and the product itself smells clean and feels nice.

Pros:

– exfoliates well

– no strange smell

– easy to use

– comes in a range, so can be used with other products

Cons

– leaves skin feeling dry, definitely need a moisturiser afterwards

– can leave skin shiny

– doesn’t last all day

Soap & Glory scrub of your life

Recently, it was my birthday, which resulted in my house being flooded with bath and beauty products! I have never really used soap and glory before even though I knew it was a good brand. I have definitely been converted! This scrub is brilliant. The beads are a bit bigger and disperse in to little ones which cleans my face thoroughly. The packaging is adorable ( as always ) and it smells great. My skin is left clean, soft and free of blemishes and blackheads.

Pros:

– cleans skin extremely thoroughly 

– smells great

– packaging is adorable

– no moisturiser needed, as it moisturises too

– comes in different sizes 

Cons:

– can leave skin blushed, but it fades straight away ( and my skin does that when I touch it anyway )

That’s all I can think of!!

What about you guys? Do you have a favourite brand?

Have a lovely day!

my skincare | EG♡

Hi everyone! Today I have spot about my skincare. Recently I’ve been really getting in to looking after my skin. I’ve been using different products and just taking more care of it.

  
First I’ll wash my face using clean and clear scrub and cream in the shower. After that I splash my face with cold water to close my pores.

Once my face is dry, I apply after sun to it. I use after sun because it is a lot lighter than other moisturisers but it still locks in moisture and keeps my skin smooth.

I apply Nivea soft moisturiser to my legs and then once it has sunk in a rub doves summer glow on them. This gives the a nice colour since I’m so pale. It just makes my legs look a bit less pale.

In the morning I use primarks oil balancing facial wipes and antomicals no old bags allowed eye gel. After this I will do my hair and things like that.

Since I’ve been getting into skincare, I would like to invest in some more natural products because I’m sure adding all of these chemicals isn’t good in the long run. For short term they make my skin feel lovely, but I will definitely be buying some of lush’s natural moisturisers and cleansers.

Do you guys have any recommendations? Do you have a skincare routine?

Have a lovely day!

August favourites! | EG♡

I rarely do favourites posts but this month I feel like I have to! I have really enjoyed this month ( obviously because of the holidays ) and these are a few things that I’ve loved this month.

  
Victoria’s Secret bag

This bag is so cute! It’s the perfect size to carry my things that I need and the colours are gorgeous. It also has a little charm and now on the zip which is really sweet. If you guys want a what’s in my bag post I can do one for you too!

Rose gold watch- newlook

I got this for Christmas last year and wore it every day then kind of forgot about it. Recently I’ve been wearing it every day and I love it. It goes with all of my outfits and has the right amount of sparkle on it too.

Nail gems 

This huge pack of nail gems was given to me by my friend for secret Santa. The colours are all lovely and match every nail varnish. I wore silver ones recently with a glitter polish and they looked so pretty.

Rommel London- brow this way

I don’t wear any makeup, but I feel like this is a must. I have thick eyebrows that never seem to stay the way I brush them. I absolutely love this product and would recommend it to anyone. It goes on and dries clear, as my eyebrows are dark I don’t want to put any coloured gel on them. It is a really good product, I will definitely be repurchasing.

Anatomicals – no old bags allowed

I got this in the plane on my way home for just £5! You take a small bit and rub it under your eyes to reduce darkness and bags. I have really got into skincare this month and love looking after my skin. I feel like this makes a big difference, I can definitely see it in myself. For just £5 I will be repurchasing this.

Ciate nail polish & topshop exhibit nail polish 

Cite is now my go to top and base coat. I have the underwear base coat and silicone top coat. Both of them are such good quality and really make my nails look like gel. I got 10 for £10 at the clothes show last December and they have all lasted really well, none of the colours have ran out yet. 

Topshop exhibit is such a pretty colour. I do think it’s more of an autumnal colour, but I love it too much to wait. It stays on for ages and pretty red and purple tones in it. I can’t wait to use it again.

what have you guys been loving?

I also have some reviews coming up for you!
