Models Own 5pc Brush Set Review

I was in the market to buy some eye brushes, nothing fancy or expensive.  Just basic brushes that gets the job done.  So when the Models Own 5pc Brush Set were on half price offer on the MO website, I swiftly purchased them.

Weleda Skin Food Review

Weleda Skin Food Review - Beauty by Eff

Weleda Skin Food (link) £8.50 has been on many magazines and websites and praised as a miracle worker by celebs.  Naturally I was curious especially because it's such an affordable product.

Weleda Skin Food is marketed as an intense moisturiser for dry and rough skin.  It is supposed to be a problem-fixer for elbows, feet etc.  It has a really, really thick texture.  It leaves my skin feeling a little greasy and takes while to sink in.  The fragrance is quite herbal and earthy.  It takes little getting used to.  If you like Caudalie's Beauty Elixir, you'll like this. 

I use this mostly on my hands, elbow and feet.  It has really helped with my feet, but not so much with my elbow and hands.  It could be that my hands weren't quite as dry as my feet, so taking longer to notice anything?  I don't know, but I will persevere.

The ingredients (link) look really good, from a quick glance, I can't see anything horrendous!  A lot of natural oils and extracts in there to nourish the skin. 

This is not something I'd use regularly, but more an intense approach to any problematic skin especially during winter.

Evening Skincare Routine

I posted my morning skincare routine earlier this week.  It was a simple four-product job, mostly to save time.  It's a whole new story in the evening though.  It includes removing everything on my skin and layering again.

Morning Skincare Routine

la roche posay effaclar duo+, avene extremely gentle cleanser, bioderma sensibio eye cream, la roche-posay serozinc - Beauty by Eff

I put a lot of effort in skincare.  I believe, if you take care of your skin, it will pay off in the long run.    Today I'll talk about my current morning skincare routine.  I like to keep it quite minimal in the morning, as it saves time and I don't feel like I have a million layers on underneath my makeup.
