With the weather turning colder, the need for central heating being switched on fast approaches, the nights getting darker and fashion moved towards a more cosy style a lot of women will be changing up their beauty routines and products so I thought I would share some of my favourite autumn beauty products.
Clockwise from bottom left – Eyebrow Razor, Dr Botanicals Pomegranite Superfood Regenerating Sleep Mask, Pixi Mesmerising Minerals Eyeshadow Palette in Mineral Contour, Lush Ultrabland Cleanser, Pixi Mesmerising Minerals Eyeshadow Palette in Desert Sunset, Revive Micro Needle Facial Roller, Facial Brush, Eyebrow Razor (folded). Centre – Lush Breath Of Fresh Air Toner.
These are my Autumn favourite beauty tools. The top item is my facial brush, which used with a cleanser, can help to brighten the skin by boosting circulation and removing dead skin cells. At this time of the year, my skin can suffer pretty badly from looking lacklustre and dull so using this can help it to look brighter.
Second down in the picture is my microneedle roller, this tool has lots of super fine needles covering the roller part. Using this once a fortnight can help to boost collagen which can help to reduce wrinkles, firm the skin and can help to reduce scars. Another benefit is that it can help products penetrate the skin more easily.
Bottom of the picture is eyebrow razors, which can also be used as dermaplaning blades. Dermaplaning can help to exfoliate the skin while also removing fine facial hair. I have found that dermaplaning can help with dry skin and spots as it removes any dead skin cells.
Lush Ultrabland is my favourite cleanser for the autumn and winter months. It is a cream that you melt in your hands before rubbing over your face, then using a toner, or damp flannel, to remove the excess. This cleanser is really oily and moisturising without being harsh or stripping any oils from the skin. It is also really gentle on the skin. This product is perfect for my skin which gets really dry when going from the cold outside into centrally heated environments.
Dr Botanicals Pomegranite Superfood Regenerating Sleep Mask is a trial version but I love it so much that once it is empty I will be purchasing the full-size version! After cleansing my skin before bed, I apply a thin layer of this to my face then go to bed. In the morning my skin feels soft, less irritated and dry, and looks glowing. It is definitely some kind of miracle worker in my opinion!
Lush Breath of Fresh Air Facial Toner comes in this handy pump spray bottle and means that just the right amount is dispensed so there is no waste. It contains rose absolute which is really calming for the skin and patchouli which is an astringent which helps to tackle spots and oil production. I use this once I have cleansed my skin, just spritz it onto my face and leave to dry. I have used this in the day when my skin needs a little pick-me-up too.
I picked both of these Pixi Mesmerising Mineral Eyeshadow Palettes from my local Tk Maxx as I was looking for an earthy, copper palette that could be used for autumn makeup looks. I couldn’t decide between the 2 palettes and in the end came home with both! The first palette, on the left, is the Mineral Contour palette, the darkest shade is a charcoal black matte finish powder while the rest of the shades all seem to have a slight shimmer to them. I was drawn to this one as it has a lovely range of brown colours which can all work on their own or in a combination to produce a fairly neutral coloured eye. The second palette, on the right, is the Desert Sunset palette which has 4 matte or semi-matte shades (the red at the bottom, orange, brick brown and the darker brown) there are 2 shimmer shades – the bronze and copper shades at the top. I was drawn to this palette as it was a bit brighter than the other, I really loved the shades of red, orange and copper and they were the shades I had been on the search for. Both palettes are in shades that I tend to go for in the autumn and I know they will get good use!
