Tell us about your skincare

So,on Saturday I stayed in  Dunboyne Castle Hotel on a spa getaway with my Sister and it was super relaxing. We got chatting about skincare and we spoke about the sheer amount of products that are out there. It can make choosing skincare products very daunting. There always seems to be a new product coming out that "You just have to try" and it can leave us ladies feeling very confused and broke (if you buy into the hype). Firstly I wanted to share with you the facial that I got done in the Hotel and my own skincare routine.  

So I decided to go for  the Image Facial  in Seoid Spa during our stay and it was truly amazing. My skin is still glowing today. The difference with this facial compared to others I have had is that the results are instant and the products smell amazing too.I try to get facials done as often as I can this is definitely my facial of choice now.This facial would be great for any brides to be, I wish I had of known about it for my wedding day.

This is Me today, I only have a tiny bit of Bronzer and mascara on.

I am no skincare expert,but I feel I am starting to find out what works for me. I think it is only when you hit your 30's that you start to think seriously about your skin, well this was true for me. So below are the products that I  use. I find that they are working great for me and after being told yesterday by my therapist that my skin is in great condition,I am confident that I am getting it right.  

Avene water spray perfect for refreshing your skin 
Micellar Cleansing Water, I use this daily and it is so gentle. Can also be purchased in Penny's  

Organics by Pamela  serum this a new  Irish brand and it was developed by Pamela.  
Sephora Facial Scrub used twice a week.
Green Angel Seaweed and collagen Face cream  I use this daily.

If you find your current skincare routine works for you then stick to it.

  1. You should use a cream that works to thicken skin naturally by increasing your own growth of collagen and elastin. As you start producing more collagen and elastin your skin will start getting thicker and smoother. In order to find a cream that really works you need to look at the ingredients and find proven effective ones. Mary Crosland

Flormar Revolution Lipstick In Burgundy Mission

I was delighted to receive a sample of the Revolution lipstick in burgundy mission, along with the lip liner to match. These were Kindly sent from RDC Communications. Flormar was launched this year in Ireland and it has proven to be a huge success and a popular choice for those who want affordability and quality. 

I tested this lipstick out over Christmas, as I am trying to be more adventurous and try out stronger colours, as I normally tend to stick with nude tones. This lipstick is a rich berry colour with blue undertones, having these undertones makes your teeth appear whiter.  
"Revolution is Flormar premium lipstick containing shea butter, cocoa, olives, a super pigment and easy 8 hr staying power".
Application Tips:
Before application ensure your lips are in good condition especially in this harsh weather. Exfoliate to remove any dry skin and apply vaseline regularly to keep them conditioned. I applied setting powder to my lips before application, this can help prolong …

Finally Contouring is getting the push

Anyone else as happy as me to see that contouring is not as popular in the makeup world. I personally could never get used to it. I think it looks amazing in photographers or on a night out when done right. If you prefer a more heavy look. I believe strobing has been around before it was just called highlighting then. So do not be confused!!!

For me I prefer a more natural look when it comes to makeup. The whole idea with strobing is that you can see the skin and it is not heavily covered up. 
I have been using the Mac Strobe Cream for a few months now. You can also strobe with powder. 
Mary-Loumanizer by the Balm
Mac Soft and Gentle 

What I like about Mac Strobe?

It makes the skin look radiant,fresh and healthy (for tired Mammies like me it's a must) It's easily applied. It's a no fuss product, there is no messing with it. It can be worn alone or added after foundation is applied. With some blush you are good to go.

Think about this, have you ever gone to a wedding and after dinner all you want to do is take off your heels and wear something more comfortable so you can dance the night away or have you only wished that you had of brought the hair clips and hairspray that you left at home...I know I have for sure, so do not let your guests go through these traumas at your wedding.
