Review and Swatches: La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur in Fair/Light

Some of my favourite skincare products are from La Roche-Posay, such as the famous Effaclar Duo+ and Serozinc. They have recently released their first coverage product, a skincare/makeup hybrid called the Effaclar BB Blur. I do not own one single tinted moisturiser, BB or CC cream of any sort; having less than perfect skin prone to breakouts and consequent scarring means I reach for high coverage bases like a comfort blanket. However after having read lots of rave reviews and seen some before and after photos of the Effaclar BB Blur, I thought maybe this could be the one to convert me.

A Lazy Girl's Body Moisturising Picks

Moisturising my face... twice daily without fail. Lips... I slather on balm like it's going out of fashion. Hands too, I've got a hand cream stashed in every place I might need one. But when it comes to the rest of my body, I'm seriously lazy and neglectful. I have a box of unopened body lotions and butters that I just can't seem to get in the habit of using. My skin doesn't feel dry to the touch, but I'm sure it would appreciate a good dose of moisture. So to get at least some kind of hydration to my skin, I have a handful of cheat products that make me feel like I'm making a lil bit of effort. These are a lazy girl's body moisturising picks.

5 Mini Reviews: Skin and Tonic, Estee Lauder, This Works, The Body Shop and Madara

My stash of beauty minis doesn't seem to be reducing and I'm trying to make a concerted effort to get through them quicker than I accumulate them! I even have a dedicated little wicker basket in my bedside table just for the sachets, vials and tubes... and it's full. Oops. I have 5 of these up on trial today - my initial thoughts and whether it's enough to make me buy the full size.

To Me, From Me

Sometimes you just gotta treat yo self. I rarely buy myself jewellery and with a bit of extra money in my bank account thanks to some of my family at Christmas, I decided to buy a couple of items... To Me, From Me
