Brimming with rose clay minerals that bring your skin nothing but joy. Seriously, people, I have never found a cleanser quite like this one. Ticking every box, the product makes swift work of detoxifying, nourishing and rejuvenating the skin. Dip your finger in the soft, yet slightly grainy texture and discover a wealth of beneficial and 100% natural ingredients – all waiting to make your complexion fall head-over-heels in love! On skin application, the balm becomes a luxurious oil, that successfully locks in all moisture.

Featuring rose clay minerals, potent moisturisers (such as sweet almond and coconut), as well as vitamin E, the mask performs outstanding multitasking abilities. Expect a thoroughly cleansed, detoxified, and exfoliated complexion that looks and feels amazing!

Should you be concerned about the signs of aging or have skin that looks a bit, well, blah; this natural formula may just be your go-to balm. Use daily to cleanse and even as a weekly mask.

2. Feeling Dreamy Candle, £3.49 (84g), www.superdrug.com

Who said you have to spend a fortune to get a gorgeously scented candle? At just £3.49, this Superdrug candle is bursting with fresh and fruity love, just waiting to light up your world. If you yearn for a delicately woven aroma of fruit and flowers, you will go mad for this candle. Boasting its distinct yet subtle scent of mango, peach, and jasmine, simply light the wick and let the stress of the day melt away. Expect to feel oh-so dreamy and uplifted. Messy room – what messy room?

3.Nyx Born To Glow Naturally Radiant Foundation, £10, www.lookfantastic.com

Affordable and achieving a flawless coverage, my favourite foundation at the moment has to be this little sparkle of heaven. I have this in ‘light’, and it is literally perfect! However, the vegan-friendly foundation is available in 43 different shades – so fret not if this hue isn’t for you. There are so many, you will find one to suit. Want natural skin and total coverage? After the smooth and luminous TV complexion (who the HELL doesn’t)?  Why not give this product a go? NYX, I love this!

4.IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder, £24 (6.8g), www.cultbeauty.co.uk

I suffer from enlarged pores and as such, I am permanently searching for some magical formula to whisk them into non-existence. Then recently, I tried IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores. In my opinion, it’s about as close to magic as you can get. Featuring optical blurring technology, silk to conceal pores and hydrolyzed collagen to smooth out those pesky wrinkles, this clearly is a hero product. IT Cosmetics really seem to know their stuff.

One thing to note (and it’s a biggie): the product has a bad result when I apply a primer first. It does not mix well with primer, foundation, and setting spray. Sadly, the mirror lighting on the day I realised was feeling cheeky and lied to me. “Go out, you look great.” Alas, that was about as far from the truth as you can get. Magnified visuals of every single pore is NOT a good look! I am unsure whether it was my specific beauty products that did not want to work together, but hey – forewarned and all that. Basically, without a primer, this Airbrush Powder is incredible!

My Fave Multi-Tasking Products Of The Week

Hey Lovelies!

Multi-tasking products (that actually work) are a dream come true. We all have lazy days, too busy to stop days – and days when we just don’t care that much. For these occasions, we need some multi-tasking heroes to give us a helping hand. Fear not, the following are not only amazing, but will save you so much time in the day. I’ve seen the future – and it is simple.

I earn a commission from products purchased through some links in this article.

1.Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil, £16.50, www.amazon.co.uk

I cannot state enough just how good this little multi-tasking is.  For those who suffer from extremely dry or dehydrated skin and hair, the oil offers sorcerer-like capabilities. Smooth into your skin for that iridescent sheen, then add (a very small amount) to the ends of your hair and sit back in wonder at the truly remarkable results. You will be amazed!

2.Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil, £105, www.spacenk.com

This beautifully luxurious multi-tasking oil should be on the top shelf in everyone’s cabinet. Scrap that – it’s so good it should be locked away in the safe. Containing the purest retinol, this oil diminishes spots, reduces fine lines and evens skin tone with ease. Unlike many other retinol products, once this outstanding oil has carried out these crucial tasks, it will then go on to deliver optimal moisturising benefits. All this whilst you are sound asleep. When you awaken you may just touch your incredibly soft skin and wonder if perhaps you are still dreaming. It’s that good.

3.Frances Prescott Tri-Balm, £46, www.francesprescott.com

Perfect for lazy girls like me, this multi-tasking balm is a literal game-changer. The hero product delivers incredible cleansing, exfoliating and moisturising results in minimal time and with almost no effort required. Win, win!

Created by renowned makeup artist and facialist, Frances Prescott, the formula offers a unique blend of natural actives and no nasty chemicals, parabens or synthetics.  Ingredients such as antioxidants, botanical oils, hyaluronic acid, pumpkin seed enzymes and starflower, work in unison to effectively nourish and rejuvenate the skin. Expect a seriously gorgeous glow. LOVE THIS!
