It may come as a shock to no one that I'm not usually one for beauty. If you've ever seen me in person, you'll know that my hair often resembles a doll whose owner doesn't own a brush.

Anyways, lately, for whatever reason (though probably caused by this video on Into The Gloss), I've been super into skincare and have been buying + trying different products: 

Cleansers :


  • Avene Thermal Spring Water - a purified water spray which I only tried after watching said Into The Gloss video, but I have to say it leaves you feeling clean and relaxed, and who doesn't want that?
  • Simple Vital Vitamin Day Cream - which I also use at night; don't hate
  • Leontine Natural Lip Gloss - handmade in Asheville, NC and all natural. Leaves my lips feeling supa' smooth/soft

And some extras for the cheap seats:

  • Sea Salt Soap - aside from the amazing packaging, this soap really is great - it lightly exfoliates and smells like the ocean. Yummmmmm.
  • Kérastase Nutritive Bain Satin Nutrition Shampoo - I've somehow just discovered Kérastase and could not be more obsessed. It's (a lot) more than I'd usually pay for shampoo at £13 / $20, but it's changed my hair. Right after I wash, I full-on feel like I'm in a shampoo commercial, Pantene-style. After using this, everything else will feel like pointless (with your hair, not in life).
