JUNE 2020 – MAMAS EDITION
If it's wrong to be in love with this BYBI Babe Balm, I don't want to be right. This pretty pink tube of 100% natural and vegan balm has been my saviour over the last few weeks, helping me to cope with everything from running chaff (the struggle is real) to hay fever induced nose soreness. Akin to Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant but thinner and easier to apply, this will definitely become a staple in my makeup bag from now on. £18, BYBI
Receive 20% off the balm and all BYBI skincare products (excludes BYBI Bundles and gift sets) when you spend £20 or more. Please note this product was gifted by BYBI but the outpouring of love is entirely genuine.
I have to admit, I do love a fancy pants product. But more and more I'm realising that the price tag doesn't always guarantee quality, and vice versa. I also love a face wash that I can use in the shower, which lathers and makes my face feel really clean. However my skin can also be dry so I have to be careful the product isn't too harsh and has hydrating ingredients too. Step forward the Simple Micellar Cleansing Water Gel, which ticks all the boxes. FeelUnique.com has a great deal at the moment, where you can buy 3 x 150ml bottles for just £14.98 *adds to basket*
Please excuse me for sounding like Barbara Bigboobs, but I consider my eyes to be my best feature, so it's important that I make the most of them. I have tried A LOT of mascaras, but I have never been able to find the golden ticket that lengthens my lashes and doesn't clump or smudge...UNTIL NOW! Now to be fully transparent, I am lucky enough to work for Grace Fodor (founder of Studio10) who is my friend and boss. However, hand on heart, I genuinely LOVE this mascara. Studio10 has been created with a more mature woman in mind, so this is perfect for me as I edge towards my 40s. The 6-in-1 Perfect Lash Mascara has a dual-action brush - the large end to coat my lashes and the smaller end to fan them out and ensure they're clump-free. Creating a wide-awake look - miraculous after a 5am start. Plus the formula is conditioning, volumising, strengthening and shine-boosting.
I honestly haven't found a better mascara yet. £24, Studio10.
