It’s been a long while since I’ve talked beauty on here so I’m excited to be collaborating with a group of bloggers as we share our current beauty faves across our platforms. I decided to go for my lockdown pamper must-haves and the products that have been getting me through this weird and wonderful time so I hope you enjoy! I’m going to be really honest – my beauty and pamper routines have been on and off during lockdown. But on the days where I’ve managed to squeeze in some dedicated self-care minutes, these have been

My go-to skin prep will always be Lush Cup Of Coffee Face And Body Mask.
If you’re looking for a scrub without the time for a facemask then Sunday Rain Watermelon Exfoliating Cubes are the ideal choice. The watermelon fragrance is quite strong which always reminds me of horrific shots when I’m drunk in a club! Regardless of the smell, I love these little beauties. I’ve found breaking them in half gives me more than enough product to use for a quick face scrub. After exfoliating I then like to use the Pixi Rose Tonic. This is key for adding hydration back into the skin and soothing any areas that the scrub may have irritated in the process. If you’re looking for hydration then you need to try a sheet mask. They are infused with so many beautiful oils and ingredients and you leave the residue to soak into your skin. I received a multipack of
A brand that I’ve always wanted to try is The Ordinary; I’ll be completely honest in saying I wouldn’t even know where to start without someone talking me through it. I love the aesthetics of the brand but finding the right product could prove very difficult if you were clueless about skincare. All of that being said, I was gifted the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Blemish Formula and I’ve been using it to combat any hormonal breakouts. You use the product like a serum and it has a dropper tool which I find really handy. You just need two drops of the product to massage into your skin, the formula covers quite a large area and can be left to soak into the skin. Niacinamide helps to unclog pores which can eliminate opportunities for breakouts. I’ve been using this on the run-up to my period which is my prime time for breakouts and I’ve definitely seen an improvement. If you’re looking at adding something new to your skincare routine then I would definitely recommend!

What are your lockdown pamper must-haves? I’d love to know! As always, I’m sending lots of messages of love and safety to everyone right now. I’m crossing my fingers that this pandemic will start to ease soon but until that point we must do everything that we can to stop the spread!
You look so content with your face mask on wrapped in your dressing gown! LOVE! I love sheet masks but I never knew Garnier bought out ones for the eyes too, I need to try those!

I used to use the cup o coffee mask all the time and I think I might go back to it after I finish the mask of magnaminty! And the ordinary is my all time favourite skincare brand, they’re perfect for oily or acne prone skin!
I have dry skin and have the exact same problem with foundation flaking, so I need to try that Lush mask, it sounds great! Great post xx
