MAC Strobe Liquid in 'Golden Elixir'

"Blending soft focus diffusers with iridescent pigments, this ultra-fluid strobe formula produces a soft radiant light on the skin, reducing the appearance of skin imperfections by providing a natural looking glow. Spreads on smoothly and absorbs quickly leaving the skin looking healthier and more radiant. A lighter weight addition to the popular strobe cream." - MAC

I've never used a strobe liquid before, MAC has one permanent strobe liquid which has a pink base and I've always been intrigued but pink on a tan complexion I never really gave it a go. But when MAC's Temperature Rising Bronzing Summer Collection came out I knew I had to have the limited edition 'Golden Elixir' version!

The Body Shop - Bits and Pieces...

Hey guys hope your all doing well! 

I popped into the Body Shop a couple of weeks ago to pick up my favorite makeup removing wipes which I blogged about here. I decided to pick and and try some other bits for your face:

Facial Buffer
Facial Loofah Pads
Facial Massager

I really really like the Facial Buffer - I use it with a facial scrub and I just like the control and pressure I get when I use it. It makes my skin feel squeaky clean and really well exfoliated. The other cool product is the Facial Loofah Pads - now these are quite rough, even when wet but I really appreciate how it works on my nose pores. It's quite abrasive and can make your skin go red, while I didn't have any redness it did work great at removing makeup, dirt and excess sebum on my nose; that's the only part of my skin that gets oily especially when the weather warms up. My pores are more prominent so the loofah pads exfoliate elements that encourage them to be more visible.

The facial massager in my opinion is great tool. Now some may call me lazy for not just using my fingers to massage my face but I actually just give preference to this little massaging device and if I'm honest it's quite fun or funny! I did however on a more serious note realise that my complexion looked much more plump and healthier - I guess the massage to get the blood flow rolling really works so i'm not complaining either way!

I'm really enjoying these new products I've incorporated into my skin care routine and if your after a exfoliating partner definitely check out the buffer or pads. If your feeling really fancy pants grab the massager! I totally love it!
