Let’s talk Black Friday. There are some great deals out there and some not so great deals (IMO). @shopvioletvoss has one of the best ones that I’ve seen. This is what I got! You get a free highlight palette with every purchase over 25$ which is a steal. •
@dermstore has 30% off select brands, one of which is @byterryofficial and I am DYING for their holiday highlighter and some other items but sadly will have to hope I get them for Christmas 😢
Then @natashadenona is having some great deals with deals at 30%,40%, and 50% off. If I could just have everything that would be great...
@deciem Has some great skincare deals going on. If I had more money I’d buy just about all of them 😂 One set is on sale for 75$ when it was originally 202$! I mean come on!
@artistcouture has 40% off going on too. I have one of their highlighters and that shit is BOMB. I’ve been eyeing so many things from them...so many highlighters...so many lipglosses..
These are the ones that really stuck out to me but let me know if you know of any other great deals!#blackfriday#blackfriday2017#blackfridaydeals#deals#sale#makeup#makeupsale#byterry#deciem#natashadenona#dermstore#cosmetics#holiday#beauty#beautyblogger#beautyblog#violetvoss#highlight#highlighter#palette#makeupenthusiast#makeupaddict#makeupaddiction
• rating: 7.5/10. I have been using this product twice daily for a little over a month.
Overall, I am satisfied with this product. It slightly lightened my scars; however, I have yet to see any overall brightening effects or my skin tone evening-out. This serum leaves your skin sticky but will subside after it has absorbed (it takes a few minutes for me.) Fortunately, I did not experience any tingling/burning sensation or redness with this product. I would only repurchase this if—and when, I decide to buy The Ordinary’s Niacinamide because I have heard many positive things when using them together.

I wish all of you Americans a very happy Thanksgiving and hope you are having a wonderful day. I’m a Brit so I don’t really get it but my boyfriend is a Yank (actually, he tells me he’s a New York Guido and that that is a whole different thing 🤔) so the importance of Thanksgiving has been impressed upon me over the last couple of years. And so, in the spirit of the day, I am thankful to you Americans for introducing the concept of Black Friday as I have now spent all of next months salary at @omorovicza and @deciem 🙈 Christmas is now cancelled as no one is getting any gifts except for me, obviously! Anyway, back to the job in hand. The Skin Emmies award for best lip product goes to @eucerin_uk Intensive Lip Balm which repeatedly saves my lips. I’m really, really picky about lip balms because my lips are super dry and this is my fav, hands down. I’ve added in the @nuxe_uk Rêve de Miel Lip Balm which smells delicious and is a really good overnight balm 💋
Kept my routine really simple tonight🌿
Started off double cleansing first, then followed by L’Oreal #clay mask for #brightening , i like these clay masks but don’t use this one as often as I use the #detox and #purity ones.
Secondly after washing off, I applied #Deciem#TheOrdinary#Advanced#Retinol , my usual trio of #Hadalabo#hyaluronicacid , #Matrixyl , #Alphaarbutin and #Niancinamide , however in between the AA and Niancinamide I applied a powerful #antioxidant , which you can find more information on following a link in my bio under The Ordinary reviews. 🌸
This powerful antioxidant is called EUK134, leaves my skin feeling soft, bright and smooth. 🌸
Be sure to apply before Niancinamide otherwise it’ll start to pill.
Do not use strong acid with this, which is why I missed the toners today -Glycolic or any other AHA and BHAs.
🌵 PM Routine 🌵I have flu 🤧🤧 and i’m on my period… I am so sick 😪 BUT I cannot miss my routine.. these days my pores tends to get clogged so today I did a detox mask (green tea) with the cosrx BHA. And the klairs midnight blue calming cream on my angry red pimples / cyst :/ (two only, my right side is almost clean, just scars :D)
Thanks to the Wayskin I know now that my skin goes dry after 3 hours of my last skincare routine.. so I’m going to look for a good mist moist to keep my skin hydrated all day. Any recommendation?? .

🇪🇸🌵Rutina de noche 🌵 tengo el resfriado más coñazo del planeta 🤧🤧.. encima con el pedido y lumbago.. me encuentro como una colilla 😪 pero! no puedo dejar pasar mis rutinas. Estos días son en los que mis poros tienden a obstruirse más, así que me puse una mascarilla DETOX de te verde y usé el BHA de corsx. Y use el klairs morning blue flaming para los granitos irritados / quistecillos, que ya por fin solo me quedan 2.. la parte derecha de la cara la tengo casi limpia, solo marquitas.. Gracias al WaySkin (adoro este juguete) ahora se que mi piel, al estar deshidratada, se seca pasadas 3 horas desde que hice la rutina.. así que voy a empezar a buscar una buena bruma que me mantenga la piel hidratada todo el dia! ¿Alguna recomendación??
I love the #hyaluronicacidserum from @deciem and it is so helpful especially during the winter months!! Just did a video on keeping your skin moisturize during the dry the winter months! Link is in the bio!!
CLEAR THAT SKIN!🙆🏻
GET YOUR SWIPE ON (but don’t get carried away because this ain't tinder!)😆... to see all the different products I use and my skin with and without makeup! (You can double tap to show some ❤️)
Here are a few things I use to on a day to day basis to help keep my skin clear and congestion free! Enjoy!
The @biore Charcoal Pore Minimiser is my morning face wash. Yes its a little harsh to use on a day to day basis but it works for me. The formula includes natural micro-crystal, which helps to get into every little bit of your face to remove dirt and leave skin smooth with visibly smaller pores OK for AM.
@deciem - The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA. This reduces the looks of spots, blemishes and hyper-pigmentation. Ok for AM & PM
The @nipandfab NO NEEDLE FIX MOISTURISER leaves my face tingling and tightened every morning. It targets fine lines and wrinkles to soften their appearance whilst also bringing moisture to the skin. Also has SPF20. Specific ingredients include: Oat extract: tones + smooths the skin to reduce appearance of expression lines. Hyaluronic acid: provides intense hydration to the skin to soften + hydrate. Vitamin E: exhibits antioxidant activity. OK for AM & PM
Deciem - The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer is a lightweight serum-like formula helps to avoid the unnatural and uneven accumulation of pigments especially around the eyes and on dry skin, providing a even natural dewy look by keeping your makeup on all day. .
Deciem - The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. WAKE UP with this extremely high 5% concentration of caffeine. This products helps to reduce my punched up black eyes that I inherited from my asian roots. Ok for AM & PM
Deciem - The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% exfoliates the skin to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity that is often associated with exfoliation. It reduces spots and clears skin. Ok for PM only.
Deciem - The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion (Previously Advanced Retinoid 2% - which is what I still use) This fights the signs of ageing. Generally, it helps to support your skin keep its youthfulness. This provides VISIBLE RESULTS, oh my god! OK for PM

Thursday evening skincare 😊
Thought I'd try the @larocheposayuki Micellar Water as my first cleanse tonight as I've only had mascara and brows on today, and it removed my makeup quickly and easily. One thing I will say is that it did make my eyes sting, but only for a couple of seconds, and I can cope with that.

So a very early start on monday,,4.45am alarm to be precise 💤.
A night in the Double Tree by Hilton for the Scottish VOWS awards.
Delighted to pick up some @deciem Original products from @houseoffraser Glasgow.
Grabbed the foundation that was out of stock online, I bought two shades to mix as I’m not sure any of the shades on their own match for me.
Let’s hope that works for my skin tone!
Question of the day: What’s your favourite Deciem product? I haven’t been so consistent with the #skinemmies2017 challenge so I thought I’d do a double whammy today. Day 3 was for Brand and Day 16 was for Budget (B&B). @deciem ‘s The Ordinary is slowly becoming one of my favourite brands. its super affordable, great shipping and great customer service. I’ve purchased from them 4 or 5 times now and each time I find something new and exciting to try out! SPOILER ALERT: I’ll be giving away 2 Ordinary products in my upcoming giveaway (which will be international 😉). See any favourites? Not Sponsored. .
🔹 100% Organic Cold-pressed Rosehip Seed Oil.
🔹 Caffeine Solution 5% + ECGC.
🔹 Glycolic Acid 7%.
🔹 Ascorbyl Glucoside 12%.
🔹Alpha Arbutin (didn’t really work for me).
🔹Salicylic Acid 2%.
🔹 Hyaluronic Acid.

🎧🎸🐒🐘 ...I'm taking a couple of weeks off from strong Retinoids so that I can test out a few more heavy duty Acids. I have some new products to review, but in the meantime I thought I'd give my @drunkelephantskincare TLC Sukari Babyfacial another crack of the whip. I bought this at the start of the Summer, used it once or twice and it went to the back of the cabinet.
It's a thick, pasty cream containing Glycolic, Tartaric, Lactic, Citric (25%) & Salicylic (2%) Acids. I'm not an expert, but my understanding is that when these different Acids are combined together in a higher overall concentration, they are much less likely to cause irritation than, say, 25% Glycolic Acid alone. There's also a solid list of calming ingredients included and the mask is clearly formulated to sit on top of the skin, not fully absorb - just like the @deciem #theordinary 30% AHA 2% BHA does.
I feel a really strong (almost burning) sensation on application so I know that it goes to work. It's effective, it exfoliates and it's not overly irritating to my skin. I love the idea of all the Acids combined. The packaging is smart and it's a clever formulation. My problem with it? I just don't see the point. It's a treatment designed to give you a kick once or twice a week; when I'm using acids in my routine, I'd personally rather be benefitting from consistent, daily, lower strength, BHA and AHA toners that remain on my skin, so offer other benefits too. I don't need a kick. If I do, I'll let The Ordinary kick me for a 10th of the price.
I know that a lot of people love Drunk Elephant and I'm really keen to try other products from the line. Any recommendations?
I've been watching reviews about the Ordinary for a month now. Originally I was only going to get the oils (rosehip seed + marula) but squeezed in a few "molecules" bc "they were so affordable" (you got me there Ordinary). These really speak to me. Simple, unscented, one trick ponies that I can combine as I wish. I love the glass pipette bottles (I feel like a lab tech as I'm going through my skin care routine). I was tempted to try the Buffet, but it kinda goes against this philosophy since the inci is a mile long. Rosehip seed oil has a natural scent to it. Some call it fishy, but all I get is puff pastry dough (if I really stretch it I can find a hint of very fresh raw salmon fillet). I was scared it would be more of a fishy fish but puff pastry dough I can live with. It doesn't linger after you add moisturizer on top. Marula oil has no scent to it. I can also live with that 😊. Btw, I love it how I'm falling for this skin care philosophy thingy when it used to be just me and Nivea 😂. #theordinary#deciem#skincarephilosophy#canwejustrewindtheclock#serumsandoils#ihaveaskincareroutineeventhoughidontevenroutinelygetoutofbed#lovethesebottles#wannapipette#skincareisnotsupposedtosmellgood#skincare#simpleskincareissurprisinglycomplicated
My #Skincare#Shelfie 🔬🔍
My skincare philosophy is one of consistency, minimalism and use of scientifically-proven actives that can help target my skin concerns, day and night. I opt for affordable skincare where possible and pay close attention to getting the best ingredients for as little possible, saving money for wine/holidays! 🍷☀️
🌟 Top shelf: my favourite bargain body lotion from #Sainsburys which I decant into a pump bottle for ease of use, #Vaseline for the lips before bed, #NipFab Glycolic Fix Extreme Pads as my acid exfoliator every second evening, my toothbrush (of course!) and the #Superfacialist Clay Mask which I’m trying to use up as I’m not a huge fan.
🌟 Bottom shelf: #YourGoodSkin cleansing balm, which I will start using one I finish the small pot of cleansing balm below it, #Simple cleansing lotion which I use when my skin needs some comforting and the refreshing gel cleanser which gets used every morning and evening! My new daytime #antioxidant serum is by #ActiveFormulas and contains Vitamin C, Niacinamide and other beautiful ingredients. My evening #retinol serum is from #Deciem ’s #TheOrdinary range and makes such a difference to my skin. Day and night moisturiser is #Superdrug#SimplyPure and my SPF of choice is a beautiful SPF30 lotion from #PizBuin that dries completely matte and regulates my combination skin.
Once again Victoria Health has joined forces with DECIEM for a very special #BlackFriday offer. Last year is was legendary, this year it’s BIGGER and BETTER than ever. Click link in our bio to find out more. GO! GO! GO!
Imorgon kl 10.00 öppnar vi vår sprillans nya DECIEM counter på ÅHLÉNS CITY i Stockholm🙌🎉. Först ut är NIOD -Skincare for the Hyper Educated, kom förbi så grottar vi ner oss i detta spännande, innovativa märke. Har allt man kan önska för oss ”hudvårdsnördar”😉👍😊. @niod @deciem @ahlens #deciem#niod#skincarefortheeducated
Ich kann es einfach nicht lassen. Ich musste mal wieder bei @deciem zuschlagen, weil es da sooo viele tolle The Ordinary. Produkte für echt kleines Geld gibt. Diesmal am Start (v.l.n.r):
Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution:
Das Tonic peelt nochmal nach der Reinigung und bringt die Haut zum Strahlen.
Retinol 1% in Squalane (momentan ausverkauft):
Retinol ist abends einfach das Beste, was man seiner Haut zum Thema Anti-Ageing geben kann. Retinol in Squalane (Öl-basiert) zieht supergut ein und erleichtert somit die Anwendung einer zusätzlichen Nachtpflege.
Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%:
Alle 2-3 Tage mische ich 3-4 Tropfen von diesem Serum in meine Tagescreme – warum? Niacinamide reduzieren Hautunreinheiten und die Verstopfung der Poren. Diese wirken somit sofort kleiner.
Salicylic Acid 2% Solution:
Pickel im Anmarsch? Einfach abends einen Tropfen dieser Lösung drauf und am nächsten Morgen ist er verschwunden – auf jeden Fall ausgebremst.
Ihr seht, jedes Produkt hat einen echten Nutzen und alle zusammen kosten nicht mal 25€. Unglaublich, oder? Ich freue mich schon auf meinen nächsten #deciemhaul
Para ser la temática principal del blog el skincare, la verdad es que creo que no me voy a volver muy loca.
1. Ultra facial cleanser de @kiehlsspain y, aunque no he terminado el de @detox_skinfood me voy a hacer con él para tenerlo de repuesto. He oído maravillas.
2. Aceite India de @iconspain ,mi pelo lo necesita.
3.Retinol de @deciem_spain voy a probar en la zona de las ojeras para ver qué tal se comporta con las ojeras.
4.Ultra facial moisturizer hace poco os comenté que me había sorprendido mucho, a pesar de que su hermana con Spf no me había gustado, así que será mi sustituta de la que tengo ahora.
