Skin Care Haul...

It's been forever I know, I feel like Instagram has kind of killed my blogging vibe. But, I have decided to share my beauty related things back on the blog! *Woop woop*

Today I did some shopping as we are supposed to be going on holiday at the end of the month and I left for flip flops and came home with skin care! But, I did get one pair of pink flip flops from the accesorize sale! :)


My skin has been messing up lately, and I have been wanting to try something new and here's what I have opted for...
  • Argon oil - This is 100% pure argan oil which I purchased from Amazon with a cheaper price tag than the known brands. I have been using this on my face as a night time moisturiser for a few days now and I really feel like it's been helping heal my scars.
  • REN - I have decided to try the REN kit for combination skin which includes sample sizes of the cleansing gel, day fluid and face mask. The mini set was £12 and I hope I love it, my T-zone has been so oily and I  have never tried skin care specifically catered for combo skin, as I have always opted for the sensitive ranges. I'm hoping these will work a treat, I also have my eye on their BB cream, and retinoid night treatment.
  • Nourish - I have been using the replenishing peptide serum on and off, and I was given a few samples to try today which I'm intrigued to try out. It's a really nice refreshing natural brand that it also quite affordable.
  • SoPhyto - PH optimizing restorative toner - says it all really, a toner that balances the ph level of your skin, yes please!

FYI: I purchased everything but the argon oil from 'planet organic' in store.



Good skin obviously comes from within, and I got a couple of new teas today. Yes 'TEA', oh no I hope I don't do 'tea hauls' on a regular basis! 


Pukka 'Harmonis' organic rose, hibiscus & sweet vanilla tea - Sounds amazing doesn't it?
Higher Living - Green Tea Chai - Love green tea, and love chai tea so a perfect combo!
Keep Cup - I have been wanting one of these forever, but hesitated as I couldn't decide on the colour I wanted :) yes, I'm a bit weird like that. Today I finally got the grey cup with peach lid and pink centre, it's so pretty and I can't wait to transport my tea/coffee on the go!! :)


Have you tried any REN products? And what are your favourite toners and teas?

I haven't tried Ren skincare products except for their BB Cream, but I would love to know how they work for you because I have similar skin to yours! I have been loving Pai Cleanser, Aurelia Miracle Cleanser for double-cleansing, followed by Marie Veronique Organics Facial Mist and Facial Oil. Best skin I have had in a long time!
My favorite tea is chai!

I am so glad you're back to blogging!

I only started reading your blog, instagram etc recently and find them very informative/interesting.

Are you sure that your skin issues aren't hormone related? If you've had your blood tests done and everything is ok in that area, then another cause can be hair products. Do you use any products such as Moroccan oil etc? Then again, with breakouts from hair products, you'll notice this more on the jawline/neck rather than the cheeks.

I use REN products - love them.I use the cleanser for dry skin and the moisturiser for sensitive skin. I suffered from breakouts until recently and can sympathise with you & problematic skin.

So glad to see a post on your blog - yay! Although I love all the instagram updates too ;-) You look so pretty in your profile pic.

I've never tried REN, but my favorite toner is by Proactiv. I think a lot of the products in that range can do more harm than good, especially when used together. But the glycolic toner is a star product - and it keeps my skin moisturized and exfoliated.

My favorite tea is Rooiboos tea - I make it in a thermos with a teaspoon of honey and sip it before bedtime...makes me so relaxed and sleepy PLUS has amazing antioxidants.

I LOVE REN skincare! Their Clarifying Clay Cleanser is seriously the best when your skin starts to feel congested or icky after a long week.

Hi I have been following you since forever. Its great to know that you r back on blogging. I also follow both of your instagram accounts and the baby blog too. Just want to ask if you can do a blog post for beginners who wants to start with zero make up items like. I am 24 yrs and dont do any makeup except for a lipgloss. And am planning to start applying little bit makeups. Also i know you use quite expensive peoducts like mac but can you do a cheaper but good brands. Thanks

Skin care products which are made of natural ingredients are true friend of skin. These Natural Organic Care products are completely free of harmful chemicals which make them a perfect choice.

Choosing what is the best skin care is really time consuming. For some people they fit to use a skin care but for other people it's not as simple as they think. They must consider the price, the process,the side effect and etc.

There are a number of experienced skin doctors in delhi who are treating skin problems with latest cosmetic treatment procedures. Consulting an established Best skin specialist in delhi or a reputed skin specialist is suggested for rewarding results.

I have used REN cleansing gel and its good. However, I haven't tried their other products. I liked your choice of skin care products. I am gonna try these for sure.

I have tried Ben Skincare Products but there is no other cream which works better than Meladerm skin lightening cream. It is one of the major brands in the United States.
