I turned 30 this year and I’ve really had to step up my skincare routine.
I’ve noticed such a change in my body, I don’t know if other women feel like this but turning 30 for me was such a big deal.
It’s been a kind of mix between mourning for my twenties and feeling charged and ready for a new beginning.
Also, the pandemic hasn’t helped but sometimes I’ve felt so sad and really down, but on the other hand, I’ve gone self-employed and I’m loving it.
I feel super confident, self-assured and happy with my appearance for the first time, ever.
I’ve also been putting myself first for a change.
My daughters started nursery so I get a couple of days to myself a week now where I can really spend time pampering myself (and blogging).
These are two products I am absolutely loving right now and are helping me cope with the fact I’m now in my 30’s!
I always feel like pampering myself lifts my mood and sometimes you just need to spoil yourself, don’t you?
The first is a hair mask, they’re something I’ve just started using this year, in fact, I hadn’t heard of them before.
I saw this one on Instagram and gave it a try. It’s Give me Cosmetic’s Hair Mask.
Oh my, it smells so coco-nutty. I left this on for a couple of hours the first time I tried it (20 mins recommended) but my hair is a bit damaged and dry from bleach so I wanted to give it some TLC.
Wow, I couldn’t believe how well this worked.
It was like my hair after my hairdresser uses Olaplex (which is also amazing by the way, It’s a game-changer if you bleach your hair).
It’s a combination of Argan Oil and Coconut oil. It makes your hair silky smooth, shiny and it just looks professional after you use it.
I like to apply it twice a week and the great thing about Give ME cosmetics is that they usually have special offers on their products.
Last time I grabbed a goodie bag with Hylauronic acid face masks in some lip scrubs too, (it worked out cheaper too). Amazing.
My skincare Routine
The second is for my skin, It’s a rosewater tonic by Neil’s Yard.
So confession time, this year I stopped wearing foundation as much.
I used to pile it on by recently I’ve been enjoying a more natural look.
I think it’s a combination of being a parent of a toddler again and starting my own business I just don’t have time anymore.
This rose water tonic is so quick to use and it smells divine, whenever I spray it on to my skin I feel so elegant.
It’s just become one of those lifesaver products for when my skin is looking dull and need to be revitalised.
I use La Roche Posay Hyalu B5 moisturiser and then I spritz this on over the top, leave it for three minutes then I wear primer, mascara, I use an eyebrow pencil then I put some lipstick on. Done. Ready for the day.
