5 Luxury Sheet Masks For An Utterly Pampered Lockdown

Hey Lovelies!

We may not be able to do anything about the lockdown, but we can indulge ourselves in pampered bliss with these luxury sheet masks. Seriously, who needs a trip to the spa?

A sheet mask is the #1 Korean skincare gem, for good reason – they offer bespoke targeted treatments for pretty much all skin concerns. A sheet mask can work wonders for your complexion, and it means there’s no need to spend into your overdraft at the beauty clinic to achieve great results. At times like these, a great sheet mask is the answer (even if it is for a short while). So, why not bag yourself some pampered luxury, light a candle and forget all about the craziness that is the world for a while?

1.For Dry or Mature Skin Choose: Dr. Jart Ceramidin Sheet Mask, £5,

Should you be in need of some serious hydration, look no further than Dr. Jart’s Ceramidin Sheet Mask. Ceramides are key proven ingredients that help form a protective barrier, retain moisture and offer anti-aging benefits. This mask may be just £5, but don’t let that fool you. With an instantly plump and radiant complexion you will feel seriously pampered.

2.For Dull Skin Choose: MZ SKIN Hydra Lift Golden Facial Treatment Mask, £90 (Pack of 5),

Since reviewing MZ Skin’s Lift & Lustre Antioxidant Serum, I have been well and truly hooked! So sad when I couldn’t squeeze any more product from the pipette, but now I have this. The mask is sheer luxury. A blissful formula that boasts Nanoparticles of gold, collagen, niacinamide and vitamin C – the mask provides clinically proven results. Expect reduced hyper-pigmentation and skin that is lifted, smoother and bursting with luminosity. On a lockdown, my tip would be to soak in an aromatherapy-infused bath, mask on face, eyes closed, and listening to your favourite chill music. Heaven!

3.For Eyes In Need Of Assistance Opt For: Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Masks, £62,

Totally Affordable And Must-Have Skincare Products I’m Loving This Week

Hey Lovelies!

Today I am sharing with you some of the best affordable skincare products I’ve tried this week. Being on lockdown allows for that extra time to consider the benefits or flaws in a product. After intensive review, the following must-have skincare items have my gold standard seal of approval:

1.Paula’s Choice Defense Essential Glow Moisturiser SPF30, £10 (30ml),

totally affordable and must-have skincare products i'm loving this week - paulas choice moisturiser
Credit: Tiger Room

Should you be new to Paula’s Choice, I will let you in on a little secret – this brand kicks serious ass. Providing superior skincare results with pretty much every product I’ve reviewed; this moisturiser works wonders for my complexion. My skin type is dry, and I find it instantly soaks into the skin, working its magic in Nanoseconds and keeping me feeling sheer delight for the entirety of the day.

Including mineral sun protection and an array of antioxidants to thwart free radicals from environmental factors and blue light, this cream literally has you covered. Such components as argan, liquorice root extract and kiwi, mean you can kiss goodbye to aging and dull skin. Expect instead, an even complexion of radiant luminosity (hooray). At £10, this is the perfect way to see for yourself just how good it really is! (Suitable for all skin types).

2.MD3 Firm 3Neuropeptide Serum With EGF, £14.99 (Was £59.99),

Check out the unbelievably massive price drop on this awesome serum! The world may be going to shit, but we can bag an outstanding skincare product with the money we would have spent at Costa’s on our daily commute! See, every cloud and all that? EGF is a remarkable ingredient that usually costs a fortune to get your hands on.

For those who aren’t aware, EGF stands for epidermal growth factor and its basically a protein that heals skin. It does this by sending signals, conditioning your skin cells to behave like the youthful ones we all favour). Now, if only I could get a product that train my brain to act more mature. I do love Bioeffect EGF Serum, but it is over £100 and this one is equally as good and on offer. Duh!

3.Yardley of London English Rose Nourishing Hand Cream, £3.46 (100ml),

Because everyone needs this in their lives right now! What better choice than the creamy feel of this nurturing hand cream? Roses have to be my most cherished flower (for candles, perfumes and skincare), so for me – having to apply this a zillion times a day is a win-win! Combining 95% natural ingredients, being paraben-free and boasting the skin-loving ingredients (essential fatty acids and vitamin E), whilst costing next to nothing – this hand cream is too good to miss.

4.Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream with Niacinamide, £12.45,

You don’t need to spend crazy amounts of cash to ensure you stay looking beautiful (cue the universal sigh of relief). When stuck in a domino effect of sleepless nights, you need that extra help to keep you (at least appearing) like you’re not the walking dead. Behold the household brand, Olay. A classic that never fails to deliver fantastic results – this formula contains the key ingredients to reduce bags, puffiness, lines and wrinkles. Phewsie!

Here’s How To Achieve The ‘Mochi Skin’ Look With Minimal Effort

Hey Lovelies!

Wait a minute – what the HELL is ‘mochi skin’? Move over ‘cloud’ and ‘glass skin’ trends, for there’s another inspirational look in town and we all want it (according to the Instagram stats). Time to get on-board with ‘mochi skin’. Time is something everyone has at the moment, so immerse yourselves in some serious pampering.  Contrary to ‘glass skin’, this one is super-easy to achieve and maintain. Check out how to create the much sought-after ‘mochi’ complexion, with minimal effort:

What is ‘Mochi Skin’?

Based on the name of a Japanese ice cream, the J-beauty inspired ‘mochi’ complexion would basically denote an appearance of plump, soft and supple deliciousness.


Instead of harsh exfoliators, opt for gentle oil-based or vitamin-infused cleansers. The idea being, to effectively remove impurities without compromising on the health of your skin or its barrier. Furthermore, as with all things, you must put in some effort. Thinking one evening and morning of this process is enough would be wrong. Think of it like exercise – a ten-minute workout will not keep gravity at bay forever more (believe me, I’ve tried). This should be thought of as a long-term plan, if you want that Disney Princess skin to last longer than the lockdown! #Mochiskin, here we come!

1.Double Cleanse

The double cleanse is something most of us overlook (mainly due to a lack of time). One perk of a lockdown is you can treat your skin to some double cleansing luxury. For optimal results, I am loving Nuxe’s Micellar Cleansing Oil, £15.50 (150ml), It contains rose petals, is non-drying and makes my heart sing! Next, one of my all-time faves – Oskia’s vitamin-rich Renaissance Cleansing Gel, £35 (100ml),

2.Hydrating Lotion

In order to achieve that plump complexion, we need an intense dose of hydration. Hence, a hydrating lotion should be one of your key products. Hydrating lotions should contain hyaluronic acid to provide intense hydration and locking it in. I love As I Am So Much Moisture Hydrating Lotion, £10.75 (375ml),

A lightweight serum will go a long way in achieving the much-loved ‘mochi skin’ look. Glossier’s Super Glow, £24 (30ml), contains vitamin C and magnesium that ensure your skin acquires an enviable glow. This is a particularly good serum for dehydrated or mature skin and will banish dark spots with unbelievable ease.

Most people would be fine with either a moisturiser or a serum – however, should your complexion be especially parched, opt for both. A fantastic product is Bioderma’s Hydrabio Crème, £15, Hydrating, moisturising, nurturing and lightweight – this cream ticks all the right boxes.

Essential for any skincare routine, the final step is to apply a good SPF of at least 30+. I am totally smitten with SkinCeuticals Sheer Mineral UV Defense SPF 50, £31.95 (50ml),

Make the most of your lockdown situation and give yourself some well-deserved ‘mochi’ TLC.

10 Latest Tips On Protection Against Coronavirus

Hey Lovelies!

Following research and conducting autopsies, several tips are coming through regarding protection against Coronavirus.

It has transpired that this virus causes mucus to build up in the throat, hardening and blocking the airways before moving to the lungs to progress to its more sinister plan. The problem is in trying to open the airways to allow medicine to pass through. There are certain tips we can apparently use to help ourselves.

 1.Drink Warm Water/Soup/Tea/Coffee

There’s one thing the Coronavirus hates as much as soap – that’s moisturised hands. That’s because the little monster molecules can’t cling on. The advice is to sanitise hands every 20 minutes. The result being, pretty much everyone will have cracked, sore hands. The longer this lasts, we can look forward to broken skin (not a great idea right now) and dermatitis. The answer is to keep moisturising. When looking for hand creams, we need super-hydrating, moisturising and nourishing properties. This vegan formula offers outstanding regenerating qualities.  Key ingredients are:

Cacao Seed – Brimming with fatty acids and vitamins.

Coconut Shell Powder – Offers ultimate hydration and nourishing benefits.

Sweet Almond Oil – Bursting with vitamins that help to heal, nourish and protect.

Bur-Marigold Extract – This fantastic ingredient provides outstanding healing, anti-inflammatory and nourishing properties for skin in need of assistance.

Dr. Konopka’s Repairing Hand Cream is so good you won’t want to run out – and at this price, you can afford not to (Just don’t buy them all).

5 Steps For Helping Your Child Deal With Coronavirus

Hey Lovelies!

As Coronavirus sweeps the globe, it is vital we help our children deal with the pandemic. Trying to shield your child from the fear of the unknown is an impossible task. Hysteria from social media causes self-perpetuating panic and can frighten. Images that look like some horror movie to adults can only be terrifying to your child. Don’t let your child’s worries get out-of-hand. Here’s some advice and steps for helping your child deal with Coronavirus.

1.Science Videos

When it comes to younger children it is important to put their minds at rest but not over complicate things. By showing them age-appropriate science videos on germs, viruses and how to protect yourself, it will help to reassure them. A great one that explains Coronoavirus is by Dr. Michelle Dickinson, here.

Make sure you watch it first to ensure your child will find it educational and helpful.

 2.Science Experiments

5 steps for helping your child deal with coronavirus
Credit: Giphy/Free Gifs/Science

You can follow this up by doing fun science experiments. A good one on YouTube is demonstrating a bowl of water with some pepper in. The adult and child put a finger in the bowl which then gets covered in pepper. Next they both put some hand soap on that finger and place it back in the bowl. You can literally see the pepper disperse away. This is a great way to show how germs are quickly destroyed when you wash your hands and how effective hand soap/gels are. Check it out here.


5 steps for helping your children deal with coronavirus

Sit down and talk to your child. Find out what they know and then explain the situation honestly, but in a child-appropriate manner so they understand and are reassured. This should quell any added anxiety they may be feeling.

4.Demonstrate How To Wash Hands

5 steps for dealing with coronavirus - hand washing

Make this important process a fun one by choosing one of their favourite songs to sing to whilst they wash their hands. Show them how you wash your hands, singing along and then ask them if they can.

5.A Drawing

A good idea is to draw a small picture of a circle or heart on the back of their hands in the morning. Tell them by the end of the day the picture should be gone. If it is still there you will be able to assess how well, they are washing their hands.

Stay safe xx

Simply light the candle and relax to some soothing music.

Don’t Suffer From Rosacea Anymore: These Treatments Are Literal Game-Changers

Hey Lovelies!

Rosacea is a common inflammatory skin condition – but one we do not need to suffer. The good news is it can be treated. When redness started to make an appearance on my face, I thought, “Oh joy, yet another fun problem to deal with.”  Thank God this one can actually be treated! However, many products that promise to diminish rosacea do very little to help. Read about the awesome treatments that are literal game-changers for your complexion.

1.Paula’s Choice 10% Azelaic Acid, £29.60,

dont suffer from rosacea these best treatments tackle rosacea
Tiger Room

Azelaic acid is one of the best treatments to deal with the bane of acne and rosacea – should you have both, this product is a must! Found in grains, this multitasking and antioxidant-rich ingredient works quickly to diminish acne, even skin tone, and tackle the pesky appearance of rosacea. Better yet, this formula combines skin-repairing adenosine and salicylic acid (BHA). These work in unison with azelaic acid to provide optimal anti-aging, rosacea destroying and skin soothing benefits. The lightweight moisturiser works like a dream. I have been applying this for several months and I am smitten! (The product is on offer at 20% off right now).

2.Paula’s Choice 1% Retinol With Peptides And Vitamin C, £12 Travel Size (5ml),

Not only does this amazing product effectively treat rosacea, but combining proven ingredients means it gets to work on all those age-related skin issues too – with unbelievable results. Expect fewer lines, less noticeable pores, and significantly reduced age spots. I started using this in December and I can honestly say it has significantly improved my skin. Woo-hoo! Should you be new to the world of retinol, why not give the travel size a bash?

3.Brimonidine Gel (Mirvaso)

For this you need to consult a dermatologist. However, formulated specifically for rosacea sufferers, it is an incredible weapon in the battle against this irksome problem.

5.Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL)

Should rosacea be particularly gruelling, you may want to consider IPL. Intense pulsed light therapy offers a fantastic long-term solution. The only catch being it’s bloody expensive!

The Do’s And Don’ts For Rosacea Sufferers

Hey Lovelies!

Following my recent article discussing the best products to treat rosacea, I have compiled a list of the do’s and don’ts to keep in mind. There is no point buying incredible products and then splashing something onto your face that will destroy all the benefits. Here are some key points rosacea sufferers should keep in mind to ensure the annoying redness stays the HELL away!

1.Avoid Alcohol

Credit: Giphy

Before you break into a cold sweat, I don’t mean that a few shots of Jameson’s on Friday night are off the table (phewsie). It is important to avoid alcohol-based skincare products, as this will further dry and irritate your skin.

2.Essential Oils Are A No-Go

Sadly, essential oils (which can be so beneficial for some) can further exacerbate the skin condition. Being a huge fan of essential oils and a fellow rosacea sufferer, this is particularly annoying for me (sigh).

Unfortunately, this can also cause skin irritation and worsen the condition.

4.Hardcore Scrubs

rosacea do's and don'ts cookie monster gif

We don’t want to anger the monster – and even though we want that facial scrub to deliver its youth-inspired promise, it won’t. Ditch the abrasive scrub in favour of a gentle exfoliant (BHA is best). In the same breath a face brush is a no-no, too.

5.Fragranced Skincare Products

They may smell divine, but your face is guaranteed to protest.

What You Can Do

Rosacea do's and don'ts - gif, lindsay lohan
Credit: Giphy

Antioxidants Please

Buy a lightweight moisturiser brimming with antioxidants (and retinol if your skin can tolerate it). Look for vitamin E to offer optimal repair as well.

Use An SPF

This should be a given regardless of a skin condition. When buying your SPF try to get one that is formulated with zinc oxide as it works incredibly well in reducing the problem.

Apply A Leave-On BHA Treatment

Try to apply this daily. BHAs work for a variety of skin issues, in particularly rosacea.

Careful Cleansing

When cleansing, opt for a really gentle one that is non-drying.

Take these steps and I promise you will be amazed at the degree rosacea is reduced. However, a little word of warning – once you have rosacea, if you don’t address it, the nasty skin complaint will spread.
