Hellow Beautiful!What are you upto today ? As I’d been MIA ,I’ve had some of you contact me and see if everything was alright :) Thank you ,Tha is very sweet of you’ll . Today I bring you my JulyEmpties , Favorites & sharing my updated skincare routine on my journey to better skin. Enjoy!
This month I actually didn’t finish that many products, so this list will look a bit short,
STREETWEAR LIPSTICK IN PINK FORTRESS : The color is creamy in finish, and it is super awesome.It is so thick so it lasted me for months. for me it kind of washes me out so I mix it with my mac nakedproof to get that perfect ,suitable nude . The lipstick comes in a black and silver plastic packaging (I’m not impressed )but are very moisturising though for the price of 200 ($2). its can be a perfect nude for fair skinned girls. (scroll down for the swatch) Do check this affordable beauty out. With so many colors, something is bound to catch your eye. decently pigmented & Super moisturising . Not gonna purchase it again , looking forward to trying Streetwear red rose lipstick which would suit all skintones beautifully.
BURT’s BEES BANANA & BEEWAX HAND CREAM : Oh my gosh, every time I use this I fall in love with it all over again.This is probably my most used hand cream because it is smells beautiful. This is a thick, moisturizing cream, which feels almost like cold butter (a bit greasy , lot won’t like that formula ). made from all natural ingredients like beewax , sweet almond oil , sun flower oil , grapefruit seed extract etc .. My Mom’s sister has always applied handcream all day long so I think I’ve copied her from a young age and become obsessed. My hands do not get dry often but I just love nice smelling handcreams as well as having soft hands. Since I’ve been interested in trying more of Burt’s hand products I’m going to give Burt’s Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream a go! on its way , cannot wait :D The glass jar doesn’t feel tough enough to toss into a clutch,I hope they will built something a little better for travel.
I’ve got a bunch of favorites for this month . I’ve chosen products that I have used on a regular basis this month and I feel that they deserve some praise! So let’s go ahead and get started!!
VASELINE HEALTHY WHITE BODY LOTION ♥ Really works! I’ve been using this product for three weeks consistently, and I have notice in one particular area that it has decreased darkness from a scar that was a few months old. This product works. I was surprised. I don’t believe that it’ll work for really old scars, but it’s worth the try.I just gotta keep using it everyday.it just takes a while for the results to kick in.It smells great and the bottle is a pretty nice size for the value. Will definitely buy more when I run out!! wonderful product to use. I would recommend to try it.
BATH & BODYWORKS Aromatherapy Lavender Chamomile Sleep body lotion ♥ I’m not sure I could ever convey just how much I love the scent of lavender , I absolutely love the BBWaromatherapy collection, especially the stress relief and sleep products! & the Aromatherapy Lavender Chamomile Sleep body lotion is the BOMB!! I usually only use it after work or fishing outdoors on a long sunny day before I go to bed(I had to use it like every other day as I had to cover night shifts at work ) it really does make falling asleep a little easier & the smell is very relaxing .I wake up refreshed everytime… its like a mini spa day in my house…very soothing! I plan on trying out all of the aromatherapy products. But Lavender & Chamomile will always be my fave :*
Nature’s Secrets (a Srilankan Skincare line) Sun & Fun Daily Protection Sunscreen Lotion ♥ We all know how important is sunscreen concerning the changes in the environment and impacts of it on our skin. Damage from sun causes skin issues like wrinkles, tan, pre mature ageing etc. Therefore a sun block with good amount of spf is necessary. I would recommend you to try this sunlotion especially if you’re a beginner with sunscreens. I do not use it on my face , only on my neck ,hands when I’m under the sun.Usually products of this brand can be equite expensive. Thus, this is a great point to start .Easily available anywhere if you live in srilanka . I have definitely tried a lot from their skincare line and I’m quite impressed. I will definitely review a few of them later on :)
Nature’s Secrets Aloe Miracle Foot Care Cream : Thankfully I have no issues with dry or cracked skin on my feet. but Foot care is an important part of our beauty regimen since It’s not often easy to moisturize and protect our feet multiple times throughout the day.When it comes to Foot care Burt’s Bees Peppermint Foot Lotion has to be my first love but it ispretty expensive so i swiched to using Nature’s Secrets Aloe Miracle Foot Care Creamwhich is very affordable & can be found anywhere in SL .If you have tried all kinds of foot creams and failed to get the desired results, give this a try once and I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed.This cream is easily soaked in by the skin of my feet and there is no heavy or uncomfortable feeling as a result.Love the wonderful Mild fragrance of aloe which is very much likeable ♥
MAC VIVAGLAMIII (for those perfect statement lips) : Gotta try this as I was hunting for a slightly darker shade from brown family which would not look too gothic but lift and brighten the face without looking over the top.I would describe the color as a nice pink-based brown with plum undertones. It is my current fave go to lippy love from MAC and suits me really the way I wanted it.The staying power of this lipstick is pretty good. If you are looking for a unique shade of brown with plumundertones, this would the best shade! Plus it dual ability to be used as a muted day wear or dark and bold evening wear, surely makes it a winner in glam range.( I have swiped it just once below and you can have an idea how pigmented it is.)
BOOTS LipSalve in Spearmint : this is probably my favourite lipsalve. the spearment scent is really yummy and quite unusual i think (at least for me – i don’t think i own any mint lip balms). this is easy to use and does the job of protecting my lips pretty well. This was given by my boyfriend though ;)

My Current skincare routine ♥
Here is my updated skin care routine and the miracle products that helped to keep my acne under control. I have had acne pretty much half of my life and it is one of the worst things a person can go through. I have used many products in order to get rid of my acne as well as the horrible scars that acne leaves behind. After spending so much money on many different products I finally found the perfect products that work for my skin.I even went as far as to go to the dermatologist to get prescription products for my face. Those however only irritated my entire face My skin has gotten so uncontrollably oily that I had to create my own oil combatting skin care routine.So I have resorted to relying on good oil-free/oil-fighting products like these to keep the oil at bay. I did a lot of researches & read reviews on these products before making the purchase .so here they are
- Neutrogena oil-free acne wash pink grapefruit( the best I’ve come across. It prevented a lot pimples , I’m a FAN ♥)
- Neutrogena oil-free acne wash pink grapefruit foaming scrub
- Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight And Fade Gel
- Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/ Mask
- Neutrogena Rapid clear 2in1 fight & fade toner (I had a lot of post acne marks the toner helped to reduce them . This product was an extraordinary , it removes dirt and helps a lot :) i recommend this product.)
- TBS Tea tree Pore minimizer (I use it when i go out , as a primer or i sometimes wear it by itself . It gives off a slight matte finish , which I like )
- Zifam gold jojoba & rose extract, rejuvenating Night oil contains 30 applicaps (From australia)
GOLD JOJOBA is exceptionally effective in removing dark patches as well as wrinkles, nourishes your skin while giving you a soft supple skin with a golden shine. Each applicap contains Jojoba Oil(Gold) – 300.00m Natural Vitamin E – 5.00 IU . I’ve seen many rave reviews about this so I definitely want to give it a try. It may be more expensive than other oils, but the benefits are well worth it . I’ve been using this the whole month , every night without fail , it is very soothing and soaks into my skin almost instantly,My skin loves it . My skin feels very fresh in the morning that i don’t even like to wash off .absolutely in love & definitely repurchasing once i run out . And another Best Acne Treatment That Works Fast is turmeric & yogurt face mask, I use this face pack without fail atleast 2 times in a week,I have been using it over 2 months now, and I see a very good change in my skin naturally, Finally my skin problems are reducing day by day . I hope this post will be helpful to those of you who struggle with acne. Never give up hope!!
