One of my Instagram finds, #kuducosmetica are from South Africa. Their products are handcrafted in small batches and use biodegradable ingredients and are made cruelty-free.
The #squaleneoil aims to soften, nourish the skin, improve its elasticity and radiance, and even the skin tone. It is lightweight, clear and scentless. I like how this makes my skin moisturized but the consistency is too heavy for my oily skin. It doesn't make my skin oilier but the weight is sometimes a bit too much. I usually mix this with my night cream and I always wake up with hydrated and plump skin.
The purifying facial mask is a water-activated facial mask that aims to purify, repair, and replenish the skin. It also clears away debris, minimizes the pores, and firms the skin. It contains moroccan rhassoul clay that absorbs excess oil and impurities from the skin, green rooibos extract has antioxidants to purify and tighten the skin and help soothe irritation, and kigelia afticana that helps strengthen and support the skin.
I always think I put too much water whenever I prepare this but apparently I don't because it dries like a normal face mask. It's easier to remove than other masks. Left my skin plump and moisturized, not stripped. I always follow this with the squalene oil, mixed in a moisturizer, because if I don't, my skin becomes dehydrated.
I use this combo during lazy saturday afternoons to keep my skin bright, healthy-looking, and plump.
If you asked me 6 months ago what ai thought of soap I’d tell you I hate it. Now I can’t live without it! I’ve been wanting to try @palermobody for a while so I decided to order the soaps as a starter. These are going to replace my harsh shower gels that haven’t been doing much for my skin. I ordered the tea tree mint for a wakeup exfoliation when needed, and rose geranium for every day. They smell amazing! They cleanse my skin without stripping it. I feel clean and my skin feels purified and my skin feels soft when stepping out of the shower
Today's morning routine. After yesterday's active-free, hydration focused routine, my skin was overall a lot calmer and a few spots flattened back out. I think I might be one of the unfortunate few that can't handle daily AHA/BHA use, so I'm instead going to focus on a more simplified routine for the meantime and will try scaling my P50 and Stratia mandelic acid to 1-2 times per week for now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cleanse with Ishtar Skinlights gel cleanser.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mist with NIOD SDSM2, which I picked up yesterday thanks to some good words on it from @myskincaremission - I'm doing 2-3 layers of this in between steps. Liking how it's feeling thus far! ⠀
Klairs Youth Activating Drops for some copper peptide action. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #hydrate with AtoClassic Origins Essence.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #moisturize with Stratia Liquid Gold, and @omorovicza neck cream (I'm really bad about treating my neck usually and this is my first time using a product which is specifically targeted at the neck). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
La Mer lifting contour serum.
Happy St.Patrick's Day from the amazing, energizing little serum that could - Oligo Proteines Marines! Nothing takes your skin from looking dull and asphyxiated to that glowing, healthy, pink undertone complexion like this serum does! Use after P50 morning and night. Available at #toskaeuropeanspa and shoptoskaspa.com
Trying out these cool new under-eye patches from my new friends @shrayskincare I have to say I have never seen so much serum in a packet of any type of mask — let alone an eye mask! There’s so much extra serum I used it all over my face and neck. And the best part, the formula is OUTSTANDING! So well made. It’s full of peptides, vitamins, antioxidants and humectants. No drying alcohol, no irritating fragrant plant essential oils. Bravo! Can I get a whole bottle of it?!

Two years anniversary of using Dr Nassif’s skin care products
My skin has transformed!! No longer is my skin dehydrated... my skin is now firmer, has less wrinkles and fine lines. I can honestly say, my skin is healthier and more youthful looking today, than it was two years ago before I used Dr Nassif’s skin care products. Finally a skin care product that actually WORKS!!!! Thank you Dr Nassif!! Sue xx. #nassifmdskincare#drpaulnassif#hsn#tv#instaskincare # #instagood#instagramers
I've dropped a few hints here and there, but if you haven't heard, I'm relaunching my blog in the next couple of months. I'm not *exactly* sure when, but I'm so excited to share it with you.
Along with a new name and a new website, the content is going to be shifting a little bit. Well, it's kind of been shifting for the last couple months.
I'm going to be focusing a lot more on products that are simple - no fancy anti-aging creams or luxe eyeshadow palettes here (not that there is ANYTHING wrong with that, it's just not what I want to share with you!) and of course I'm going to be focusing more on sustainability. After working with @meowmeowtweet I've learned so much about the ethics behind sourcing, packaging, and what not, and I want to make that a bigger part of what I share with you on my own blog!
I'm also hoping to make a 'resource library' for you. I've got a couple of free downloads throughout my blog posts, there's a master list of green beauty brands, and there's a few DIY guides. But instead of having these resources hidden throughout my blog posts, I want to create one 'library' where you can go to get everything in one place. How does that sound?
I'm going to be adding all of the current resources I've already made, but I'm hoping to add more, so if you have any burning questions or anything you'd love to see in the library, let me know!
P.S. Is there any better way to start your weekend than with a @bunner cupcake? I don't think so!
