Birchbox 3 Months On

Image
Subscription boxes are a weird niche, they're a nice little pick me up each month tailored to you. For me, I've always wanted to try these and for the past three months, I've been subscribed to Birchbox. Each month I've received a bunch of products and I've given my verdict on them. I thought I would review the whole service after three months of purchasing and share my loves from the boxes and the ones you could definitely miss out on. 

The boxes overall have been good, there hasn't been any in which I haven't been disappointed. The service offers boxes tailored to you, after filling out a quick questionnaire it helps to tailor the products to you. What I've found throughout the boxes is it's normally 1 or 2 products that you will receive that might be different to what other people receive. This means there isn't that much personalisation around the box and what you get. 

However, I feel like the products in there, for the most part, are tailore…

Change in Foundations ?

Hello everyone 

Now as you may have possibly guessed from the titles today's post is not going to be a review or a part from my series instead it is something I have been wanting to make a post about for the past month and I felt like now was the right time.

So recently I had a bit of a clear up I altered my skincare routine and with that I decided to alter my makeup routine (blog post soon!) and with all this change I decided it was time for a change in products. 


One of the most crucial things I have changed is my foundation, throughout the summer I had been wearing the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation and absolutely loving it. But seeing as the colder days are upon us I decided that it would be better to go with a different foundation. I chose to re-purchase one of my most loved foundations the YSL Touche Eclat Foundation.


This foundation is fairly expensive but it works for me and at times everyone needs a little luxury. But what I have been doing with this is something I am currently in the process of testing. As I am still a teen I of course have acne and a lot of redness especially on my nose so I can't always cover it up but I always aim to draw the focus away from that area. So what I have been doing is using a tiny amount of the foundation with my L'Oreal CC Anti-Redness cream as this has really been helping to cover up the redness. 

I don't know what it is but recently I haven't been wanting to use foundation but I have still wanted some sort of base for my face which is why I have chosen to pair it with a CC cream as a CC cream is basically like a foundation although there is less coverage and it aims to correct the overall shade of your face by concealing any dark patches or redness.

As expected I will report back on what I am currently doing as well as my updated makeup routine and a review of the L'Oreal CC Anti-Redness Cream so don't forget to check for them soon. On Friday I will be giving you my tips and tricks on Powders and for next Wednesday I will be reviewing a primer that was meant to be the drugstore dupe to the Benefit Porefessional so don't forget to check for that.

Thanks for reading!
