Skincare & Makeup Routine For Dry, Acne Prone Skin!

♥Hey webfriends! Please thumbs up if you enjoy this winter skin care and makeup routine! I included some tips on how to avoid dry, flaky skin this time of year as SO many of yous have asked me! Even those with oily/combination skin can experience dryness 🙂

♥OPEN for discounts! Yay!

How I got rid of my ACNE (I got you guys discounts so yous can try this stuff, too!):

Soniclear facial cleansing brush (better than the Clarisonic as it doesn't allow bacteria to grow in the brush head, not to mention it's cheaper & just as good quality!) 20% off at checkout here: and off anything else from their website, too:

Clearogen (which has helped me to get 99% clear skin) are also offering 15% off to my subscribers after much discussions, WOOP!

Hydrating products mentioned:

First and foremost, DRINK YOUR WATER! Set alarms on your phone to go off during the day to remind you to drink 🙂 So important, seriously. If you don't want dry patches and premature wrinkles, do this.

***SECRET QUESTION TO COMMENTERS: what liquid do you drink the most!? BE HONEST I really really really wanna know! 🙂 Use the hashtag #quenched ;)***

1: SERUM: Vichy Aqualia Thermal Power Serum (featured is my absolute fav as it can be used morning and night and contains the super important ingredient, hyaluronic acid)

2. HYDRATING FACE MASKS (twice a week) - you can use natural masks which hydrate, such as honey or greek yogurt, OR a high end one with lots of added ingredients with extra various benefits, my favourite masks are Mask of Magnaminty from Lush and the high-end Glam Glow Hydrating Thirstymud mask!

3: Face mists! These are awesome, can sandwich moisture and can be used at any time of the day, even to set your makeup! I adore The Body Shop vitamin E spray. Awesome stuff.

4. Also, the importance of exfoliation! Discussed in the video is my preferred method of exfoliation (Soniclear brush!) & the discount link is above, and also you can mix brown sugar with your cleanser - this works pretty well too!


All from Bare Minerals! Purchased with my own money & unsponsored - I've been asked a LOT to try this out by you guys as you all seem to lovvvvve it, and now I do too! It comes in 20 shades (BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation) & the one I got is a BIT too dark, which you guys know if yous saw my last vlog when I was testing it out!

So I got that foundation, and also from bare minerals their Perfecting Face Brush, a concealer and the Mineral Veil powder!

All can be shopped from Bare Minerals:
