I finally bought a Beauty Blender

Firstly I want to kick myself for not buying these sooner because I haven't used a brush to apply my foundation since I got these. If you have been contemplating about paying the stupidly high price for this little sponge but haven't got one yet GO GET IT. I'm telling you right now they are incredible. That's all I'm really going to say on these because if you're a makeup lover you already know that they are amazing and the only reason you wouldn't own one is if you are like me and didn't want to fork out the money.

Daiso Detergent // Review

As a makeup artist, cleaning your brushes can feel like a job that you're doing literally everyday. So the goal is to come up with a system that is quick and super efficient. For me that routine consists of two containers, one with a block of sard soap and the other with a cheap conditioner. For me, this system works well but when I saw this little product all over instagram and facebook as some kind of super cleaner for your brushes and sponges I thought I might as well give it a go. 

It does work well at cleaning your brushes which is exactly what you want, but I don't really see what makes it any better then any other makeup brush cleaner. I also found that I used quite a bit of this and seeing as the bottle is so small it wouldn't last very long. 

If you're just a regular makeup user then this would be great for brush cleaning. But for me and having to clean my brushes 3+ times a week I think I'll stick to my Sard Wonder Soap.

Skincare Additions // The Body Shop

If you've been reading my blog for a while then you would know I love this cleansing butter from The Body Shop. It literally melts your makeup off your face but leaves the skin feeling soft and moisturised afterwords. I've added a new little guy into my cleansing routine and it comes in the form of a little scrubby brush (I have no idea what the actual name of this brush is woops).

This brush is like the first form of the clarisonic, as in it is not huge or mechanical in any way but it does work incredibly well. I place a thin layer of the cleansing butter all over my face and remove any makeup on my skin. Then I do it again and use the little brush to give a light exfoliation and to remove any left over makeup. It really does remove anything on the skin but it isnt harsh in any way.

It also removes any little bumps on the skin which is what I wanted it for!

For $4.95 I think its a great little addition to your skincare routine.
