Tyla's Friday Five: Five things I put on my face this week

Skin Food Mud Mask:

I use to just like doing face masks because it made me feel glam and like I was this grown woman who had a proper skin care routine. I’ve actually forced myself to have a proper skin care routine and have stuck to it for about 4 months now, because apparently you're suppose to start anti age/wrinkle prevention in your 20’s? This mask is super cheap, gentle enough to use once a week and plant based - so no nasties. 

Antipodes Vanilla Pod day cream/Avocado & Rosehip oil:

I had been looking at both these products for a while and was really keen to try them. I’m not usually too keen on that smell that some plant based/natural products have so was hesitant to buy two full sized products with the fear that I would never use them. But then I found the limited edition mini packs, which just so happened to have the two products I wanted in the same package. PERFECT. And you know what? I’m not even sick of them at all, in fact they’re both the greatest things that have ever happened to my face and I use them both everyday. The day cream is super hydrating (good for those who have thirsty skin like me) and it makes your makeup glide on smoothly. The oil, again, good for those who need extra hydration it also works well at night after you’ve washed your face. 

3.     NARS Sheer Glow foundation:

I’ve used the same MAC foundation for the last three or four years so when it came time to buy a new one I thought I’d better branch out. As someone who reads loads of beauty blogs I had only heard amazing things about the NARS Sheer Glow and it really does live up to all the hype (you’d hope so because its not cheap) You only need a small amount, it’s light, has a natural amount of coverage and a nice dewy finish. Perfs. 

4.     Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser:

I was recently told that using an exfoliating face wash twice a day is really bad for my skin and is probably the cause of it being so dry. So with this new found information I set out to find something a little gentler. This face wash is amazing cause it takes your make up off too - perfect for when you're feeling lazy! Plus it's super cheap. 

5.     Clarins Lip Perfector:

I really don’t know how to describe this other than it’s a lip gloss without the gloss and stickiness? It has a very subtle ‘gloss’ like finish and a hint of colour, perfect for when you feel as though you need something on your lips and a chapstick isn’t enough but a lipstick is too much effort. Basically, its a muted down lip gloss that smells and feels like heaven.

  1. I love Skin Food! They're affordable and all have all the qualities I look for in a beauty product. I use their moisturiser daily but haven't tried their mask before. I'll check it out. I don't do masks that often, only when my skin is look pretty sad. I'd like to do it once a week.
