After much deliberation and years of wanting to do it, I finally pulled my finger out and put myself out there. I’ll be posting pretty much anything and everything fashion, beauty, travel and media related!

Anyway down to my latest product review….

MooGoo Cosmeticsย were lovely enough to send me their ‘Skin Milk Udder Cream‘ย which I now cannot stop using! I suffer with mild eczema (it used to be severe) and dry skin, so this cream has been a god send! MooGoo Cosmetics is an Australian company that makes a range of natural beauty products to cater to everyone’s skincare needs. They’re also super eco friendly only using natural oils in their products and using sustainable farms. They raise awareness of the impacts that consumption has on the environment through their brand ethos. Which is pretty awesome! This made me all the more excited to try their renownedย Skin Milk Udder Cream.

The Skin Milk Udder Cream was originally designed to protect the skin of cows but then was later developed for human use. Pretty cool huh? The directions on the bottle state to ‘apply to damp skin after washing, then apply as required.’ The cream is for both face and body. I applied the cream all over to damp skin after washing, although it took a little while to soak into my skin it glided on smoothly and had a very subtle scent. I wouldn’t recommend applying the cream to skin without washing as it makes it hard to spread and rub in.

When I first used this cream I had a large patch of dry skin on my arm (partially down to my eczema.) After two uses of this cream on the affected area the area of dry skin had almost completely gone! Since then I’ve continued using this cream at least twice a week and it’s really made a difference in the feel of my skin especially, it feels more supple and firm and my dry skin and eczema spells are not as significant anymore! This will be a recurring beauty buy for my skin as of now! Check out their website for more amazing skin care products for adults and babies!

Spring Skin Saviours: Products and Tips

As we go through the Winter to Spring transition many faces have suffered. Whatever your skin type; dry, combination, normal, oily; Your skin has most probably taken a hit from the shift in weather conditions right? Mine definitely has, for a couple of months now my skin has been at its worst ever. Breakouts, dry patches and dullness. So I took action and with some research and recommendations to hand I went out and panic bought as many skincare products I could, in hopes they would salvage my skin.

I can happily say my skin is now starting to get back on track and is almost back to its normal PH balance! So, I bring to you my Spring Skin Saviours! These products have worked wonders on my skin within a matter of days. Bear in mind everyone’s skin is different so not all these products featured may necessarily work for your skin but they are definitely worth a trial, especially if your skin is feeling as defeated as mine was!

My skin type:

  • Normal to dry
  • Sensitive

The product: Nivea Soft Moisturising Cream

How to apply: With clean hands, use your fingertips to massage into skin.

Review: Recommended by my sister, I ran out to get this cream as she said it was great for tight dry skin. After applying just twice a day for two days my skin dramatically changed from dry and taught to soft, supple and my complexion much brighter. And the great thing about this cream is that it can also be used for your body too, so you don’t have to spend money on multiple creams!

The product: Garnier Micellar Water (pictured above)

How to apply: Squirt on to a cotton pad and gently swipe over face in circular motions.

Review: The past year has been all about micellar water, everyones gone crazy about it and for a good reason to. Gone are the days of the long tired cleansing and toning routines to remove your make-up, with this magic water your make-up is removed and your skin cleansed all in one step. I love the Garnier branded water in particular as its great for my sensitive skin and super cheap. Naughtily I was using make-up wipes for a while to cleanse my face as i ran out of cleanser, so my skin become taught and spotty. But after ditching the wipes and using this water for a few days my skin has really cleared up.

The product: Boots Tea Tree and witch Hazel Charcoal Face Mask

How to apply: Splash face with warm water and apply the mask with clean hands to your face. Leave on for 5-10 minutes removing with warm water.

Review: I’ve been searching for a good face mask for a while that can combat my skins unexpected behaviour. Of late my skin has become combination, with spots, oiliness and dry patches. Which is very odd as my skin is usually a very calm normal to dry type. My friend recommended this face mask having used it herself and as my skin always reacts well to witch hazel I thought I’d give it a go! With active charcoal, I could actually feel the mask deeply cleansing through the pores in my skin. And it completely restored my oily skin back to its normal state, leaving my skin feeling fresh and soft.
