The benefits of a facial roller

For a few months I just kept seeing so many influencers and YouTubers using these facial rollers and I caved in and thought I want to try one they look fun.

So I went and found myself one on my old trusty amazon

Mine is a Rose Quartz one, you can get Jade ones that are green and apparently they work differently.

A Jade roller revitalises the skin, wakes it up, makes your sluggish skin into stunning skin

A Rose Quartz roller on the other hand is full of minerals such as silcium, magnesium and Iron.

🌺 The silcium (silica) helps the elasticity in your skin

🌺 The magnesium helps relieve muscle spasms and helps headaches and sinus problems

🌺 The Iron helps regulate blood circulation and eliminates fatigue

So you can see why I chose the Rose Quartz over the Jade.

I guess the Jade one could be used in the morning and the Rose Quartz for the evening.

I find putting mine in the fridge adds a nice cooling effect to the skin.

Here’s the link to mine (I’m not sponsored or affiliated I just think it’s a fab product)

Foundation Fails

I know I’m not on my own in this.

Trying to find the ‘Perfect’ foundation. The one that’s going to look like your 2nd skin and hide any impurities. Well, I went on the hunt about 4 months ago and here are the ones that have been complete foundation failures for me. They are all the same shade may I add which is Ivory…cos I’m super pale.

true match

I started using True Match quite a few years ago. I didn’t have the best coverage with it. The colour was rather pinky and didn’t stay put all day. Nothing is worse than having to reapply. So I decided to add one to mix together…

I thought if I blended Revlon Colorstay with the True Match then maybe it would be more my colour. I’d say it was better than just on its own but left my skin quite dry in my T zone. So I hunted on some more.

Knowing that the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer was absolutely amazing I thought the foundation would be too. Got the Palest one and I looked like an Oompa Loompa. What a waste of money that was. I did get him off the internet so I couldn’t swatch him on my skin beforehand.

The next one I looked for I wanted it to be high coverage as I have some acne scarring from my childhood. I had seen rave reviews about Infallible Total Cover so out came the purse. It was too thick,  like you had put cement on your face and didn’t feel natural. He’s still sitting in my drawer having a think of what he’d done to my face.

Lastly is the Revolution Foundation Stick. I really wanted to love this. It was relatively cheap compared to the others. You didn’t need much on as it went s long way. Had it on for about 4 hours great. Any longer and it left my face shiny and almost melting off my face and definitely not kiss proof, tried and tested. More on his face than my lips.

I have found one that I’m absolutely loving and is definitely a keeper. I will be featuring it in my Monthly Favourites post in a few days so keep an eye out for it.
