Lightweight sunscreen under $15...say lesss Until quite recently I was under the impression that cheaper sunscreens were trash. Well tbh a lot of them are. So this guy was definitely a nice surprise. @sunsenseaus Moisturising Face SPF 50+ is a lightweight lotion (see image for texture) that sits on the skin nicely, with no white cast. Contains Niacinamide and is also fragrance free. Since it is quite moisturising it can be worn on its own with no moisturiser underneath. Depends on your skin type and personal preference of course. Overall, I’m fan of this one. Clearly lol. Yes to more affordable, lightweight sunscreens that are accessible and suitable to all skin tones!
Let’s talk Vitamin C Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and one of the most well researched and beneficial vitamins in skincare. Benefits of Vitamin C include: ✨Improve signs of ageing ✨Brighten uneven skin tone ✨Skin restoring and soothing While the purest form of Vit C (Ascorbic acid) is the most well researched, it is known for being quite unstable and hard to formulate with. For this reason other more stable forms of Vit c are often used in skincare instead. Take this @alphahskincare Vitamin C serum. It contains Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, grapeseed extract and Hyaluronic acid. This is a lightweight serum that layers well with other skincare. Use consistently and your skin will thank you for it. Do you use Vitamin C in your skincare routine? Let me know your favourites!
Not another sunscreen post... A week ago I uploaded a guide to the best and worst Aussie sunscreens to my YouTube channel. And in that week it got over 2000 views. That’s the best a video of mine has done in my 9 months on YouTube. So this post is dedicated to that little achievement lol. Please we’re nearing New Years. I need to find some achievements to validate myself with. If you haven’t seen that video yet, this is a summary of my favourites- my top 5. Watch the vid for detailed thoughts and product applications clips. I loved hearing about your favourite sunscreens and I especially loved hearing that my content helped you pick out a new fave. I think we’ll do mineral sunscreens next. What do you think?
@ultravioletteau Skin Screens Pictured from top to bottom: Lean Screen, Supreme Screen & Queen Screen Finally, here is my complete breakdown of the different sunscreen options from @ultravioletteau (clean screen and extreme screen not included) You guys already know I love these. They’re incredible. But here’s a breakdown of the specifics to help you make a more educated choice about which one would suit you best. - Lean Screen is a physical, zinc based sunscreen. You can see in the texture shot it is quite thick but not heavy on the skin. It appears tinted but dries down clear. It also has a slight mattifying effect on the skin. Not drying, not white cast (yay), fragrance free and no pilling. Also sits well under makeup. - Supreme Screen is my top pick and the one I’m likely to recommend to most. A more hydrating chemical sunscreen with a satin finish. This one works well for all skin types. No white cast, no pilling, good under makeup and just so so good. - Queen Screen is gorgeous. Very liquidy and lightweight chemical sunscreen as you can see in the texture shot. The most hydrating of the bunch and leaves a stunning glow to the skin. I think this one is best suited for dry skin only not combo or oily. Again no white cast, no pilling and sits well under makeup. If you have any questions please let me know below. You can purchase these direct from @ultravioletteau website, @adorebeauty (affiliate link in bio) or @sephoraaus (affiliate link in bio)
My #1 Pharmacy Sunscreen Pick If you don’t wear sunscreen because you hate how it feels, smells, applies etc etc... then this one is for you. This is the @larocheposayaunz Invisible Fluid and it truly lives up to its name. It’s literally feels like nothing on the skin. Sooo lightweight, undetectable, great under makeup, no white cast, doesn’t sting around the eyes, fragrance free. Nothing but praise for this one. It has a satin finish and great for basically all skin types since.. again, it feels like nothing on the skin. At $30 this is the best sunscreen you’ll find at your local chemist. Have you tried this one out? What’s your favourite chemist sunscreen?
My night routine varies from night to night. But the goal stays the same. Hydrate, keep breakouts away and fade those dark spots. What are your skin goals at the moment? When it comes to fading dark spots and pigmentation there are a few different options. For best results it’s advised to use more than one of these options. And exfoliating regularly will also improve your dark spots. Exfoliation happens 3 times a week with @deciem The Ordinary’s Mandelic Acid. Mandelic acid is an AHA (think glycolic acid) but on the more gentle side. Keeps those dead skin cells and skin texture away. Now for dark spot treatments. Niacinamide, Alpha Arbutin (new comers from @theinkeylist) and my new love @azclear Azelaic Acid. I don’t use all three every night. I’ll use niacinamide nightly with either Azelaic acid OR Alpha Arbutin. So far I’m having great results with Azelaic Acid so I’m keen to see if this improves with the new additions. And of course make sure you cleanse first, apply treatments and finish with moisturiser.
Salicylic Acid- the hero we all need Oily/ acne prone peeps, this ones for you. Salicylic acid is a Beta Hydroxy acid (BHA). A very useful ingredient when it comes to combatting mild acne. It works as an exfoliant, removing the top layer of dead skin. It is also oil soluble, which means its able to penetrate through the skin and into your pores which makes it so effective at reducing breakouts and blackheads. It can also soothe inflamed skin and reduce skin texture. It’s pretty incredible stuff. It comes in many forms in skincare, cleansers, wash off masks and leave on treatments. Pictured here are @theinkeylist SA Cleanser- great for sensitive skin that might not be able to tolerate a leave on SA treatment. Keeps those pores nice and clean. @deciem Salicylic Acid 2% Masque- I’ve been using this for years and it’s great. My fave way to use it is as an overnight spot treatment. Kinda like a pimple patch but better. Use this on breakout areas or blackheads 1-2 times a week. Do you use salicylic acid? Which are your fave SA products?
✨First product review of 2021... and it’s a good one ✨ We’re in the middle of summer here in Australia and it’s perfect. It’s cold, grey and rainy. Amazing. Unfortunately with this weather comes dry air and with that even drier skin and possible skin irritation. Enter my saviour. The @larocheposayaunz Cicaplast B5 Soothing Repairing Balm. I purchased this as last week my eyelids and upper lip became severely irritated. I’m talking itchiness, redness and flaking skin. It was pretty bad. Within 2 days of using this soothing balm and eliminating all actives ofc, my skin had completely recovered. As if nothing happened to begin with. This balm is a rich cream you can use over moisturiser on irritation or use all over in place of your regular moisturiser. This one is a dream for sensitive skin. It contains 5% Panthenol (vit B5) and madecassoside which help to sooth the skin. Combined with Shea butter and other nourishing ingredients resulting in this thick, soothing goodness that will quickly absolve you of your irritated skin. Have you tried this balm at all? I’m annoyed I didn’t try it sooner tbh lol #larocheposay #cicaplast
