Glam Glow Glowstarter

Glam Glow Glowstarter

I have been a fan of Glam Glow since its launch in 2011 and started using their incredible face-masks then. Over the last few years Glam Glow has become one of my favourite skincare brands. The products are beautifully packaged and they smell divine!

I have been using Glam Glow’s Glowstarter for 6 weeks now. I have all 3 shades; sun-glow, nude-glow and pearl-glow. I can wear all of them because they blend and leave a luminescence and I like mixing pearl-glow with my foundation. I have been using Glam-Glow daily and I love the effect. Its an illuminating moisturiser so I have replaced my daily moisturiser with it and it was great on holiday as it just leaves your skin glowing and I felt like it set my tan on fire, it just enhanced it perfectly that I could go bare-faced on good skin days. It doesn’t really give coverage so you would wear your foundation with it or mix it into your foundation.

It contains hyaluronic acid, plus vitamins and green tea for energized and moisturized skin. Added illuminating pearl particles help make you look instantly more radiant, blurring and reflecting light, so that all lighting is goodlighting. I love mixing it with my foundation as it gives you that flawless look.

Skin-moisture balance is restored by a combination of emollients including jojoba oil, shea butter and ceramides. A special skin-conditioning lipid complex is designed to help infuse skin with optimal hydration for a luminous finish. I do love the moisturiser however I stopped using it when I had a break out for a few days as the last thing you want is to add dimension to your pimples. This product definitely has a better effect on good skin, its also probably not ideal for very oily skin. I have combination skin and thought it was ideal and it would also be great for dry skin.

I also got the plumprageous lip plumper treatments which are insane! When I wore it my friends asked me if I had lip fillers so its obviously noticeable! It does sting after about 30 seconds for a good 5 minutes or so but it def gives you those bee stung lips and I like the natural colours too. Of course you can put a lipstick underneath it or even on top after your lips are plumped.

I love Glam-Glow and would highly-recommend these products!

Zizzleblog’s Summer Skin Essentials

IMG_20170529_120339_924Summer is almost here and nobody wants a full face of make-up in this sweltering heat but that doesn’t mean you can’t look beautiful. I think summer is the time of the year where our confidence needs to come back out from behind those winter trench coats and spring layers, this is the season to shine! Good skin is key, invest in your skin people and that doesn’t mean buy the most expensive products, it means get into a regime and invest 10 minutes a day to looking after your skin!

I have tested a lot of products and these are the ones I loved and have added to my daily routine or at least I would never travel without them!

Clarisonic Mia 2- I always bang on about this I know but I just have to say again how much it has transformed my skin. It gets rid of all of those bumps below the surface and leaves your skin smooth and glowing.

GlamGlow DreamDuo – This is my star product! It has completely transformed my skin. Its a nightly treatment, it smells super delicious, you can just smell it wafting while you fall asleep. It has two compartments when you open it, one is the dreamserum which is pearlescent and the other is a grey cream called dreamseal. It has a rich texture and I love putting on at night and waking up to really plumped, radiant skin. I am going to invest in more of GlamGlows products as their mud mask also blew me away!

Sephora’s charcoal scrub – This is super gentle and draws out impurities from the skin while restoring moisture. I love the smell of this scrub and it comes in a travel sized bottle. There are six different ingredients in the range so you can choose the one most appropriate for your skin, they all smell yummy!

Sephora’s charcoal wipes – I love these wipes and will definitely be restocking! They are textured on one side so they exfoliate and the other side is smooth so you can wipe of your make-up!

Bioderma Perfect Skin Suncare- This product really wowed me! It is great for hitting the beach as it is an all-in-one moisturiser, has a tint to smooth your complexion and also has oil control for 8 hours! In addition it is factor 50+ AND illuminates the skin so your highlight will be on fleek! Its great for oily skin but cakey on dry skin, the formula is light and really natural. I have the medium tone which blends into a vast range of skin-tones. This all-in-one aspect will save me a lot of space when I travel as for beach holidays it is my everything!! I love how it looks on me, I hate wearing makeup to the beach but also feel sometimes my skin needs a little coverage and this little baby does it all!

Bioderma Sun Mist – Again factor 50 which is great as protecting your skin is really important! I love that its a mist and you just spray it on wet skin from 20cm away. You don’t need to rub it in and you can’t even feel when its on. I usually find factor 50 products suffocating as they are so thick and sticky, the light formula is the best part! You can use it on your face too, simply spray it on your hands and rub it on.

Erborian CC Creme – This Korean skin therapy brand is a new favourite of mine. When my skin is decent I use this moisturiser daily instead of a foundation as the light coverage is enough to give an even skin tone. Of course you can apply your foundation on top of it for fuller coverage. It helps boost radiance while hydrating your skin. It is factor 25 so it gives you protection from those UV rays. It is sulphate and paraben free and contains a lot of skin food!

Decleor Soothing Eye Contour Gel – Perfect for soothing tired, puffy eyes. This gel feels really cool and also firms the skin.

Jergens Hydrating Coconut – It smells like a holiday and is super rich and creamy. Perfect for rehydrating dry skin after a day in the sun. It’s really nourishing and contains hydraluscence which illuminates your skin leaving you glowing!
