Sunburn is probably the worst summer ailment there is, besides getting sucked in by a wave and thrown around the ocean. Both happened to me yesterday 😬 my face doesn't have a single burn on it because @glossier invisible shield + is a miracle worker. Wish I could say the same for the sunscreen on the rest of my body! Also, nails are @essiepolish Clambake, recommended by @intothegloss 💅🏼 link in bio for 20% off your first Glossier purchase 🤗
We've sorted out the dietary guidelines, and now off to beauty: after using @glossier products for some time now, I can finally say these are my favorites - boy brow & stretch concealer + haloscope in quartz (not pictured). Dream team ✨ It's gonna be tough when I run out of this stuff - desperate in advance 🕊#glossier
The perfect amount of coverage for clinic/class/the OR/the wards/the library/coffee dates/hung over brunch. @glossier skin tint is seriously one of my favorite beauty products ever. It evens skin tone without covering skin (because your skin is beautiful and you should show it! 😘) see it action and get ready with me on my story now and slide in my DMs or comment below with your questions! 💅🏾 #glossierrep#glossierskintint
🌹 GLOSSIER 🌹
🌹 so when I was in nyc I couldn't pass up the opportunity to visit the highly anticipated pop up of @glossier we've heard a lot about this brand in the UK and I was super excited to get stick in. I bought A LOT but one at a time people! 🌹 @glossier soothing face mist rosewater spray - I love a spray me and this is no exception. Nice and simple smells amazing and rosey but not to powerful and hydrates and brightens me. I've been using this AM as my usual toner and it's just great well done glossier ....ow hurry up and get to the UK.
Why do we support niche beauty brands? @contentbeauty says it well: "Sometimes the product you choose to buy is literally the odd one out. ⠀
Did you know 7 companies control almost every single mainstream beauty product? A new report from Business Insider says a whopping 182 beauty companies are owned by conglomerate powerhouses Coty, Estée Lauder, Johnson and Johnson, L'Oréal, Procter and Gamble, Shiseido & Unilever. ⠀
Not only does this mean products from completely separate brands are often made with the same base formulations and rolling off the same production line. This concentration of ownership means a concentration of advertising power. Those billions of dollars from the big 7 profits are invested back into advertisements designed to shape how we think about beauty. Food for thought when choosing to support #smallbatch beauty and independents."
My @glossier Super Pure is empty, which is heart breaking. I loved this product. But instead of ordering a replacement I am going to use The Ordinary's Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and see which product I like better.
I used Super Pure twice a day for about a month and I went through that bottle quick! I was pretty heavy handed with application because it felt so soothing on the skin and gave me light hydration. My skin appears a little clearer and overall texture more refined. My pores are so large that I'm not really sure there's much hope but we shall see.
First impression is that I like the texture of Super Bouce much more than The Ordinary's version. Super Bounce is watery but very soothing. The Ordinary's is more serum like but if you use to much it sort of rubs around on top of the skin (which does eventually absorb). I've only used The Ordinary's a couple times so I don't have much more to say yet.
I will update what I think once I've finished the bottle.
It's also worth noting that The Ordinary's version is like 1/5 of the cost compared to Glossier, but if I like @glossier better I will gladly pay more!
Have any of you compared these two serums? Which one did you like better?

💎Glitter Stick #milkmakeup
I haven't used this on my face yet, but when I swatch it I swoon every time! Love the holographic touch 😍. If you are interested in seeing swatches please swipe right. It's the bottom swatch. Btw this is limited edition and half of the proceeds go to The Center 🌈 💗🌈.
💎Birthday Balm Dot Com #glossier
I received this in the mail yesterday and I have already been using it non stop. It really does smell amazing 🎂🎂🎂 like straight up birthday cake. Swipe right for swatches this one is the top swatch.
💎*Hand Cream #thesenastyhands
This hand cream is so freaking cool! It was created by a lovely group of entrepreneurial women and 100% of net profits go to an organization of your choice. You can choose from The ACLU, Hetrick-Martin Institute, or Naral Pro-Choice America. This was gifted to me by PR but I'm going to place an order to get more! I want one in my purse, one in my bathroom, and one on my nightstand. It's $15.00 for 1oz and it leaves my hands feeling so damn smooth. It also has a slight floral scent and I just love the cause!
💎Fragrance #replica Beach Walk
I love the smell of this fragrance and the scent actually lasts on me! It's fresh, summery, and a little bit sweet. If you have a Sephora near by please go and spray it on yourself lol 🙌🏽.
💎It Cosmetics Products #qvc
I have been curious about #itcosmetics skincare, so when I saw that QVC had a special value on this kit I went for it. It has two skincare items, two beauty products, and one makeup brush. I haven't tried any of these but I'll let you guys know how they go. Let me know if you like it cosmetics skincare 💗.
I have been interested in trying more gel texture sunscreens. The only one I have tried was Glossier, sadly it gave me an allergic reaction. I'm hoping this one works for my skin ☺️❤️.
Fell asleep super early last night so haven't got the chance for a skincare regime. This morning's color-coordinated products is a lift-me-up kind of routine since it's going to be the last day of work before Hari Raya holiday! 🌸 Cleanse #sum37
