Cleansing wipes, the dirty truth







Wipes were once the preserve of the baby changing table but in today's household you're likely to find wipes in every corner of the home and it is the beauty routine which has seen the biggest change.
With that, we'll probably start to see a change to the nation's skin too - and not necessarily a good one says skin expert 
Caroline Hirons : "I can spot a woman that uses a cleansing cloth a mile off, it just looks like they haven't washed their face properly. There will be residue around the hairline and her skin will look like it's in dire need of some exfoliation."
Sarah Chapman , beauty specialist, skincare expert and founder of Skinesis agrees: "I see a lot of women with skin that's become blocked, sensitised and covered in rashes because of cloths come into my clinic. In a nutshell I am not a fan."
The reason for cleansing wipes' aggravating nature is tri-fold. Firstly, most wipes contain alcohol, to help the wipe hold onto ingredients. Secondly, they don't actually clean the face completely; they don't lift off oil and sebum properly, won't remove dirt in its entirety and tend to leave a residue on skin. Thirdly the ingredients and chemicals  are extremely irritating for skin."
Also we tend to press harder with a cloth than we would with a cream cleanser and it exacerbates the situation. If you have acne or sensitivity - particularly on the cheeks - a wipe does far more harm than good.

Are you using face wipes. Hope this article will make you to consider ditching them. I always have face wipes in my car, but I use them to wipe my hands.

EASTER SUNDAY


Hitya All,

Saturday was the special day for all the Polish crowd. We were blessing our food for Sunday's brekkie:-) My hubby got used to this tradition, so I'm happy that he's always with me at the church that day. Do you have any special traditions that you share with your family?

I wore rather simple outfit, see below














I was wearing Nine West booties, PRIMARK dress, Aldo bag and D&G sunglasses

What do you think?

DIY face mask- say stop to your blackheads!

Hiya All,

I recently found another DIY face mask that I tried on my face. I have to say- why I didn't know about that earlier!!!!! I never hear about baking soda being used in homemade face masks until few days ago. This is really good and affordable face mask that really works.

This is what I found- check below picture :-)





Any way here is what I used to prepare my face mask:

- small bowl
- baking soda (bread soda- this is exactly the same thing)
- fine salt (I used sea salt)
- your facial gel that you use daily (I use clear and clear)

This is what you need to do:

Add one spoon of baking soda & salt into the bowl. Then add your face gel (about a spoon too). Mix all ingredients and put your mixture on a clean face. Make sure to avoid eye are and do not put it on your lips (I know it's obvious but never ever try to do tho:-P). To be honest before you put it on your face, you should try it on a small area. This mask gave me a tingly sensation. 

I kept it on my face for a 5 minutes and then I used water & my hands to remove it. I did this mask last night but I had to wait till today morning to see if my face wasn't irritated and I wanted to see the results in the day light! I have to say that I will be doing it more often. My skin felt so fresh and definitely my nose is looking so much better. My face looks like I've had microdermabrasion done. Wooohooo!!!!! Definitely wort trying. I can recommend this face mask for people who struggle with blackheads. But I'm not sure if this mask is suitable for sensible skin.

Also baking soda can be used with a tooth paste :-) If ya wanna have a brighter smile this is the way to go:-)

10 Best CC Creams




CC creams seem to be little more than tinted moisturisers, but there's no doubt that some of the formulas on the market stand out for their ability to even skin tone and conceal imperfections without a heavy finish or oily texture - those are the ones filling the gap in our make-up bags. See the 10 best



Chanel

Excellent coverage, good SPF protection and a thick but blendable texture, Chanel's CC cream works best worn over a serum as a moisturiser-foundation hybrid.

Chanel CC Cream Complete Correction SPF 30, £43.




Ole Henriksen

Providing a dewy glow and sheer coverage, Ole Henriksen's CC cream utilises green tea extract to calm redness, vitamin C to act upon dark spots and ferulic acid to prevent against free radical damage. Use in the place of a primer to create a glowy base for make-up.

Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Crème SPF 30, £29. 


Yves Saint Laurent

Designed to awaken the complexion, the pink-based YSL CC cream is ideal for dull-looking skin. The brand has also created a lavender-toned version, for sallow skin, and an apricot hue for uneven skin tone.

Yves Saint Laurent Forever Light Creator CC Creme Colour Corrector SPF 35, £30.



Olay

A blend of serum, SPF 15 moisturiser and sheer foundation, Olay's CC cream specifically targets the signs of ageing, working on reducing the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots. Lightweight and hydrating, it can be worn alone or as a base - ideal for rushed mornings or lazy weekends.

Olay Regenerist CC Complexion Corrector SPF 15, £24.99.

Darphin

With its blendable texture, impressive SPF 35 protection and radiance-boosting particles, Darphin's CC cream is easy to apply and won't settle into fine lines or pores.

Darphin CC Cream Instant Multi-Benefit Care SPF 35, £32.




L'Oréal Paris

Don't be alarmed by the green colour of L'Oréal Paris's anti-redness CC cream, it is specifically formulated to target redness in the skin and uses the green hue to neutralise. The brand also has anti-fatigue and anti-dullness formulas - apricot and lilac respectively.

L'Oréal Paris Nude Magique CC Cream Anti-Redness SPF 12, £9.99.

Clinique

Designed as a skincare product first and foremost, Clinique's CC cream calls upon beauty powerhouse hyaluronic acid for moisture and comes in nine different shades to ensure the perfect match.

Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream SPF 30 Hydrating Colour Corrector, £28. 



Max Factor

Max Factor's CC cream was one of the first on the market and offers good enough coverage to be worn in the place of foundation, at a very reasonable price.

Max Factor Colour Correcting Cream SPF 10, £9.99. 




Smashbox

If you suffer from blemishes, or have done in the past, you'll thank Smashbox for coming up with a CC cream that acts upon acne stars and controls oil whilst providing medium coverage.

Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream SPF 30, £29. 




Bobbi Brown

Soft-focus skin is the aim of the Bobbi Brown CC cream, which evens skin tone, smooths skin in the way that a primer would and offers SPF 35 protection - pretty impressive for a make-up product.

Bobbi Brown CC Cream SPF 35, £29.




Are you using CC cream? Which is your favourite one? Are they as good as they sound? I never tried any of them but I was thinking of giving a go.
Let me know what do ya think about them
