Squeaky Clean: Face Exfoliator: Antipodes, dr Brandt and Lush

If you have read my Current Skincare Staples post, you would know that I have combination towards oily skin, deep cleansing products like clay masks & face exfoliator have become my skincare obsession. Recently I have tried a few exfoliators that I really love. They are physical exfoliators, which means they have beads or particles that actually scrub your face. If you have sensitive skin, you should use these products sparsely (once a week or even once every fortnight) and scrub gently.

Current Skincare Staples #1

Last time I shared my Current Makeup Staples , this time it is all about skincare.

Smelling of Red Roses: Jo Malone Red Roses Candle and Diffuser

I love rose scent, and I have always wanting to get my hands on a Jo Malone item. During a random browsing at the Jo Malone counter inside John Lewis, I had finally taken the plunge & made a splurge.

Products that I caved in... #1: Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eye Palette & Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder

If you are a serious makeup addict like myself, you will have the experience this: you have been refraining from buying a product for some time, because: a) you have already owned similar products multiple times; or b) you have bought so much recently that you are trying to save money; or c) your beauty stash are so overflown into every corner of your room. However, after the same product popping up on different beauty blogs over and over again, you finally convince yourself that it is THE ONE PRODUCT that you NEED, RIGHT NOW! Today, I am going to share with you the products that I bought under the abovementioned scenario.

I have already seen various Benefits special tin collection in John Lewis. Another brand that is doing the same is Laura Mercier.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month : Bobbi Brown French Pink Set

October is the Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And today 13th October is Secondary Breast Cancer Awareness Day . It is a day dedicated to spreading the word about the other side of breast caner, the incurable side. This shows how important it is for all of us to be aware of it, and don't feel embarrassed to talk about it with your GP if you have any concerns or worries. It is also very important that we support the good work that the Breast Cancer Research Foundation have been doing.

Current Makeup Staples #1

Almost every beauty blogger blogs about their monthly favourites each month. I could never do that because when I like something, I tend use the same thing daily for 3 months or longer, that I do not wish to change them. So if I were to do monthly favourite, you would probably see the same things on every month continuously, which won't be very interesting to read. So what I have decided to do is to have a "Current Makeup Staples" series, where I share with you what I have been using for the past several months. I plan to have a post approx every 3 months, that coincides with the change of season, when I tend to switch up my products or discover something new. In this first post, I am going to share with you the products I use every time when I do my makeup, whether it is day or night look, weekday work or weekend casual look.

Winter Dry Skin Saviour: Ruby Red Soothing Body Scrub

With the return of Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks, Autumn has officially arrived. Days are getting shorter, leaves are falling, and our skin gets drier. For me, the driest time of the day is after shower, which I have to slap on tons of body lotion or oil. However, I have discovered a body scrub recently that leaves my skin feeling soft, moisturised & it smells gorgeous! I am excited to tell you about Soothing Body Scrub  (£35) by Ruby Red.
