Sometimes life can get on top us, we may roll into bed without having fully cleansed our faces (Surely it's not just me?!) and our skin can be left looking a little dull and in need of some TLC. So, with that in mind I thought I would put together a post with my favourite products that I love to help give my skin an extra little glow as I go about my day.
I vow never to be without this exfoliator - it really is that good! I've always bought my mum a Sanctuary gift set for Christmas each year without fail, but last year I decided to treat myself and this little beauty was included. The exfoliator is such a treat as it feels so luxurious on the skin and you can feel the thick beads working their magic; this is not just a quick scrub and go! It includes ultra fine apricot granules, grape seed exfoliates with pineapple and papaya extracts. My skin feels so smooth as I rinse this off with warm water, it's hard to resist using it everyday!
I recently picked this up in my favourite place - Boots clearance section. Soap and Glory have had a whole new look, so any old packaging was being sold at a discount price and I managed to restrict myself to only picking this up! I can't help but love the cheeky name! Glow job may look like a simple moisturiser, but not only does it moisturise the skin, it also includes micro bronzeburst beads which add a temporary self tan.
After finishing applying my makeup, I love to add a quick sweep of highlighter onto my cheekbones and this is an new favourite of mine. I picked this up in Boots for just £6.95 and at first I did struggle to blend it in correctly. As you can see it's a radiance stick, which can be swept onto cheekbones, under eyebrows and the bridge of your nose. It only takes a second to apply and can be blended in with fingers or a brush if you find that easier. It gives my cheekbones great definition and an added glow.
I absolutely love this bronzing block from Sleek. It's a total bargain at just £7.49 as you get a lot of product for the price. The block includes a total of four separate shades of bronze and blush, which you can either blend together or just pick your favourite shade. It gives a quick sun kissed glow and it has amazing staying power - you'll definitely be glad of this in your makeup bag!
