A new season has arrived. Leaves are changing into magnificent bronzed rainbows of colour. The air has become cooler and darkness comes sooner. Alas, with the onset of a new season skin care routines must change. Those light moisturisers need to change into heavier ones and applying night time moisturizing creams become important. Eye skin care must also take priority.

Please remember those cool cravings that appear as the air gets chillier. As you want to eat more keep in mind to choose meals that are warm, healthy and filling such as soups (like full-bodied minestrone) and vegetable curries with beautiful exotic rices such as Basmati.

Back to skincare! According to the Huffington Post, the six best ways to take care of your skin during Autumn are:

Get A Humidifier
Apply Oil To The Skin
Eat Moisture Rich Food (such as leafy greens and water-rich fruit)
Exfoliate The Skin
Use Skincare Containing Blood-Invigorating Ingredients
Go For Facials

It’s also important to keep your neck and decollage protected against the chilly air by covering this area in scarves and shawls.
Hair, Moisturizers and Makeup
Hair and makeup colors also change during Autumn, which is so much fun! From all the pastel and bright pink nail polishes applied during Spring and Summer, wearing colours that have a more auburn and maroon look to them are more fitting. During this time it’s nice to get a color wash at the hairdresser infusing darker colors into the hair. Hair will be worn more loosely around Autumn. It will also be nice to apply different colours with regards to makeup. Purple, beige and gold eyeshadows can be introduced as well as darker blushes and darker shades of lipstick.

Clarins offer a beautiful range of new colours for fall 2017 and Estee Lauder’s Hydrationist promises maximum moisture. For sensitive skin Cetaphil offers a wide range of cleansers and moisturisers and has won many awards for their products. For eye care I recommend ROC’s Retinol Correxion Sensitive Eye Cream to tighten and moisturise the skin around the eyes or Clinique’s Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector to address dark circles.

Exercise

Exercise is important during this time as not only is it natural to pick up weight during the chillier months of the year but getting your blood flow circulating does wonders for the health of your body and the appearance of your skin.
Supplements

A great way to also support beautiful looking skin during this season is to add supplements to your diet. A healthy dose of phytoceramides and omega-3 fatty acids in your diet is great for good looking, healthy skin. If you are not sure which brand of supplements to look for regarding this or who to trust our Research Verified review comes up tops!

All I know is that during Autumn I will be cosying up to the heater with my pets, a nice glass of warm Sangria in my hand and a load of moisturiser on my face and body! Enjoy the chilled air and new Autumn skincare products!

How To Get Great Looking Skin During Autumn

Mai Couture, since receiving these skincare papers. I've become highly interested in the brand. They have a good concept within their range, from paper makeup and paper skincare. I've got 3 blotting papers from the range. Blotting papers I'm no stranger to and when I look back they're pretty handy for the warmer weather and even for those oily moments that us oily skin types can attest too.

The packaging of these are eye catching, a booklet with a marble background and gold embossed logo, they are sure to take pride within and outside any bag. Each booklet has 60 tear, apply and toss sheets.

Bamboo Charcoal - Help absorb skin impurities and toxins with Mai Couture’s Bamboo Charcoal Blotting Papier. Effective at drawing out pollutants, bamboo charcoal absorbs bacteria, toxins, and micro-particles from the skin.

Rosehip Oil - Experience the benefits of rose hip oil with Mai Couture’s convenient and efficient blotting papers. Nourished with essential fatty acids, vitamin E, vitamin C and B-carotene—rose hip oil penetrates deep into the skin to combat signs of aging. Remove unwanted facial oil, while help reducing fine lines and wrinkles and balancing your skin’s moisture.

Vitamin C + E - These ultra soft, hypoallergenic blotting papers are infused with therapeutic Vitamin C+E making them the ideal travel companion for stress-free skin at a moment’s notice. Use under makeup for a relaxing therapeutic treatment or over makeup to freshen up without disturbing it.
Blotting papers are highly absorbing, they're dust and lint free. So you never have to worry about them transferring anything onto your face once you're blotting that oily excess away.

Simple to use
:  Hold sheet on skin and lightly rub using the fingertips to release ingredients. Use both sides of the sheet and as required until paper becomes transparent.

Mai Couture blotting paper each has it's own distinctive colour. The Rosehip is a pink, the vitamin C+E a peachy orange and the charcoal a grey-black. I don't detect any fragrance so those with sensitive skin, need not worry. These are extremely handy for my skin as oil attacks strike whenever. It's easy for me to freshen up my face with or without makeup and view the now transparent paper that has now transferred the oil from my face. Totally satisfying, as I'm then left with a matte finish to the skin and one less thing to worry about. Better yet, my makeup is never disturbed.

I think we should all have blotting papers within our bags. And right now; I'm recommending these fabulous packaged, skincare efficient and oil removing beauty police papers.

You can purchase these at BeautyMART £10 each.

Purchase: Rosehip / Vitamin C+E / Charcoal

Mai Couture - Beautifying Paper.

With 6, sweet new shades for the Essie Summer 2017 Collection that is inspired by sweet pastel and sugar confections. It's hard to not want to wear a new shade every week for the summer holidays. What I love personally about this collection is that each shade, I can see myself wearing until the bottles are empty.
sweet soufflé - creamy white with a golden glow. For a full coverage, I will apply 3 costs. It's a different tone of white for me, it is not a solid white but it does have some metallic tones running through it, in bright light I can see almost a blue in the bottle, on the nails it has a orange pearl streak.

baguette me not - sweet lilac with hints of pink undertones. Beautiful lilac tone, which I think will be my next nail colour. It makes me want to eat a sweet confectionary treat.

blue-la-la - dreamy sky blue. A pure pastel blue shade that works well with 2 coats on me. I quite like blue nail polish when I think about it. I don't have many pure blue shades, It's a good addition.
s'il vous play - fun, eye-catching metallic pink with a slight purple underneath. Love love love. When I was first playing with these polishes I wore this one an accent nail alongside sweet soufflé. Paired perfectly, even alone it's a must have. 2 coats for an even application and it wasn't a b-tch to remove like some glittery shades can be. It's not chunky glitter, It's an interesting formula.

fondant of you - vibrantly sweet golden orange.  Another like sweet soufflé, caught in lighting, there's a flash of colour running, this one has the golden shimmer. Takes 3 for a an even coat. Stunning shade.

éclair my love - bright berry toned red. It's a perfect red for the summer I feel, it is vibrant and a slight muted red. Coral comes to mind when I stare at the shade.

What shades catch your eyes during the Summer?

Essie Summer 2017 Collection

I've not heard of the Sand + Sky brand before. Maybe cos I don't watch most of what's going on, on social media. But when I saw the email regarding the brand, I felt it was a must for me to try.

Their pink clay mask seems to be heading towards cult status. It's a 4 - in - 1 treatment, there already eliminating multiple other mask needs. It comes with its own Sand & Sky brush to apply with as it's more hygienic and you can cover areas faster and give yourself an even coverage. There's s few ingredients that immediately stood out to me but when u saw liquorice, I knew it was one as I love liquorice for dark spot treatments.

Detox
Pink Australian Clay: Draws out impurities, toxins and pollutants from the skin. Refines the pores and deep cleanses the skin.

Invigorate
Organic Liquorice + Old Man's Weed: Draws out impurities, toxins and pollutants from the skin. Refines the pores and deep cleanses the skin.

Refine
Organic Aloe Vera + Pomegranate: Shrinks pores & soothes after Detoxify + Brighten. Stimulates collagen production.

Brighten
Kakadu Plum & Kelp + Organic Mangosteen: Helps prevent free radical damage. Creates defence shield to leave skin clear and glowing.

Before I opened this I had a feeling this may of been a loose powder mask that needed water to activate but was so glad that it was already a ready made mixture, after I cleansed my face I began to apply with the brush, the mask, wet appears pink, goes on smoothly & not much needs to be used - first time use, I applied it from the lid lol. That's how little is needed. As it dries it becomes white but it doesn't tighten the skin so much that it's uncomfortable & it can't be moved. After it turned white, I left it for about 10 minutes, 15 minutes total.

I got a warm face cloth and began to wipe it off, I was amazed at the ease of removing this mask from my skin. My skin looked brighter and felt more smooth. What I noticed especially the blackheads on my nose, cleared and shrunk - and a few days later, still no sign of them. I would, highly recommend this mask, at £39.90, it can be looked at as expensive but if you are a fan of face mask, looking for one to help protect, detox and brighten, it's one for the wishlist.

Sand & Sky - Detoxify + Brighten.

Being all for exfoliation, I'm always open to try various exfoliation aids to keep my skin, smooth, hopefully even toned and dry skin free.

I was sent two scrubbers from Afterspa Round Dual Texture Scrubber (for deep cleansing and exfoliation for the whole body) & Facial Micro Scrubber  (for healthy and smooth skin for the face and neck).
The scrubbers are meant to be a lot more effective cleaning than using just our hands alone. It comes within a waterproof wallet and a suction cap so once it's used it can be hung up on the tiles of your shower/ bath and dry. I quite like that feature of the packaging.


Round Dual Texture Scrubber.
This one us for the entire body and it has an elastic strap at the back for a more easy grip and exfoliating process. It has two sides, the soft side is to massage the sensitive areas and the other side for a deeper exfoliation. I use this daily, with no issue. It's handy to use in the shower with my body wash and I feel it keeps on top of my exfoliating inbetween my major weekly body scrub. You know the one where I really see that dead skin roll off.

Facial Micro Scrubber.
This has a soft sponge pad within a pouch that has dual sides one softer and the other an exfoliator that is easy to clean & exfoliate the face. It's easy to use just wet the scrubber & apply your soap, I'm using black soap and I will just rub the soap on the scrubber and using circular motions, I use the exfoliator side first as I like to get rid of the dead skin before cleansing. I like how non abrasive the scrubber is, the face feels smooth and clean without looking red and irritated. It's advised to be replaced every 60 days.

With the micro scrubber £6.00 & the dual scrubber £6.50 it's very budget friendly to try out. Overall they're gentle on the skin and worth trying out. You can find these in Boots within the UK.

Have you ever used any products from Afterspa?

Afterspa - Exfoliating Scrubbers.

March, I wrote about the launch of essie’s Treat Love & Colour collection which is a treatment that:
TREAT: Restore dry, brittle nails to a healthy look in just 1 week
LOVE: Pamper your nails with a formula that locks in moisture and perfects
COLOUR: Enhance nails instantly with visually brightening pigments for a healthy glow
I was sent three shades before and now they've expanded the collection to included 4 more shades (3 seen in order above - applied 3x)...
Good as nude: glimmering, warm and sandy beige.
See the light: beautiful and reflective ivory beige.
Tonal taupe: hints of gold in this beige taupe.
Treat me bright: bright in white with a sheer, powder hue. (not pictured)
These shades remind me a lot of Summer, rich tones of golds & bronzes to accentuate the sun kissed skin that can come with Summer whether real or faux. I was wearing Tonal Taupe for a while and really loved the way it looked and See The Light on my toes. Good As Nude is a surprising one because when I think nude tones, what it gives, isn't what I'd imagine. But I like that as it's different. I like that it has the same wide brush applicator as the gel polishes, it makes it easier to apply and to get more of a neat finish. Even with a wash of colour that these give. I normally do two coats for myself and because it dries fast, it's a quick treatment to do when your nails really need the TLC or when you're in a rush. I can't wait to see what other shades they look to release with this range. I think also a clear version would be nice if you wanted to treat your nails while wearing your favourite Essie polish but these do give a nice alternative to have a hint of colour while treating your nails.

What do you think?

More Essie Treat Love & Colour.

A few months ago I featured a brand called SAMAYA while trying out their pitta cleanser which you can read more about here but to give you a brief rundown on the brand they're an all-natural skincare brand that are based on Ayurvedic principles, one I have taken up in some aspects of my health. By giving us clinically proven active ingredients and anti-ageing compounds that they marry to bring us effective skincare that are relaxing and beneficial.

With key ingredients, as beautiful as these; Jasmine Flower Extract, Neem Oil, Saffron Extract, Lotus Seed Extract, Shatavari Extract, Turmeric Root Oil, Spilanthes Acmella Flower Extract, Gotu Kola Oil, Feverfew Extract. It’s hard to not see why this gives benefifts over time.

The Benefits.

Jasmine Flower Extract; mood boosting, improves energy, reduces anxiety and stress. While helping to balance moisture levels and increase the skin’s elasticity. Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties help protect skin.

Neem Oil; promotes skin healing, reduces itching and roughness while purifying the skin and neutralising damaging free radicals to give the skin a radiant glow.

Saffron Extract; skin toning abilities, helps natural radiance as it helps to reduce pigmentation. Mood enhancing properties, an aphrodisiac that is used often to improve general health.

Lotus Seed Extract; anti-inflammatory that contains zinc and anti-ageing enzymes that can repair damaged or sensitive skin while soothing and calming the mind. Very beneficial for blemish-prone skin.

Shatavari Extract; In Ayurvedic tradition to be the female equivalent to Ashwagandha, Shatavari’s name in Sanskrit translates as ‘she who possesses one hundred husbands.’ It has been used as a tonic for female health concerns and as a means of reducing stress and tension. There’s rejuvenative properties for skin, helping towards a renewed, youthful appearance.

Turmeric Root Oil; Powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, heals skin barrier while protection it from free radical damage and also great for hyperpigmentation.

Spilanthes Acmella Flower Extract; considers nature’s botox. It’s an anti-inflammatory, natural, edible botanical extract, that helps to instantly relax facial stress and tension while reducing the appearance of winkles, UV damage and blemishes. Helps restore skin firmness, leading to a younger-looking revived appearance.

Gotu Kola Oil; anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing herb, helps fight chronic skin conditions by repairing damage done to the skin, stimulates collagen production in the skin.

Feverfew Extract; Chrysanthemum parthenium and Midsummer Daisy is also what this ingredient is known by. It’s a good cooling and anti-inflammatory herb, known historically as a relaxant with soothing properties.
I am in love with oils for my skin already so once again - it's more than welcome. Even though anti-ageing isn't something I've thought about, I do like to keep my skin, plump & bright. With everything being so pure, it's more comforting for me. The oil doesn't sit on my skin or block my pores. I apply this after or without moisturiser but I make sure to apply it morning & night - especially at night alongside my humidifier as I find my skin enjoys all the moisture being given and retained. I use it under my eyes too with no problem, I had a little dry area under my eye which didn't look great when applying makeup but since using this, it's helped cure that problem.

SAMAYA - Pitta Anti-Ageing Treatment Oil

I had never heard of Skinny Tan before until I got wind of their Rose Gold tan, rose gold? HELLO! Who doesn’t want that hue on their skin!? This was the first year I’ve actually caught some colour from those hot days we had during May but the sun isn’t always great for the skin and it needs protection, so the safest way is to self-tan. & Every sale of their limited edition Rose Gold LE Tanner £2 from every sale will go to Marie Curie 💮

About the brand.
Skinny Tan has been makes waves throughout the Australian shores and with the formula being perfected, it’s home in the UK ready to grace our skin to be a bronzed goddess. After successfully being on Dragons Den and having two investors in Kelly Hoppen and Piers Linney they’ve been changing the perception of fake tans.

Most tanners have a chemical form of DHA that can be drying and cause damage to the skin - plus it gives that biscuit nasty smell. Skinny Tan is one of the first self-tanners that use a natural tanning active derived from the seeds of the Brassica napus plant. Making it a bio-organic form of DHA, working with amino acids in the skin to create the darkening reaction for a natural looking tan! As it's natural the biscuit smell is reduced significantly and most people cannot detect it at all.

About the products.
Skinny Tan is the first self-tanner that combines natural tanning active with naturally derived skin smoothing actives to tan, contour and reduce the visible appearances of cellulite with the help of Guarana, a caffeine derivative which is popular in firming and cellulite creams. Yeah I got some cottage cheese on the side and underneath of my thighs. Unless I’m sitting down, the ripples are cool. The tan claims to instantly bronze and last for up to 7 days. Smelling like a coconut island breeze while being streak free. Oh and let’s add – cruelty free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
In my box.
I was graciously sent a lovely box of Skinny Tan items.
Pre-Tan Primer (125ml £9.99)
This is to help you prep your skin before tanning. Remove any dead or dry skin cells with this crushed walnut shell primer. Use this a few hours before you tan – not immediately before.
Rose Gold 7-Day Tanner (125ml £24.99)
Wash off and developing tan 2 in 1. Apply the tan and enjoy the rose gold shimmer effect on the skin
After Glow Gloss (125ml £9.99)
A moisturising gloss, that is created to give a red-carpet glow without the ‘gimmicky glitter’.
Exfoliating Mitt (£7.99)
Double-sided mitt. The brown side gives gentle exfoliation that’ll remove dead, dull skin cells, while the orange side is a professional level dermabrasion tough enough to remove excess tanning from palms, ankles, knees or elbows – best believe, always needed!!!
Tan Application Mitt (£4.99)
Double-sided soft tanning mitt – best quality in the UK – Helps smoother tanning application and to protect hands from tanning.

Experience.
I get so apprehensive with trying out a tanner because it's that familiar tanning smell of biscuits that nobody wants to smell. Just alerts people - tanning & all the negative stuff that comes along with it such as streaks and orange skin. But here we go - I got in the shower to use the Pre-Tan Primer with the Exfoliating Mitt and was so surprised at the mitt, it reminded me of my salux cloth mixed with my korean italy mitt - f-ing dope. If you're not interested in tanning but want a mitt that's going to get rid of that old skin, I'd suggest this. The pre-tan primer has a thick cream consistency with Walnut Shell Powder that you can see within the primer and it works very well with the mitt, my skin was red but not irritated and the smell - let's focus on this for a moment; forget that it's labelled as a pre-tan primer, this exfoliator and it's smell has to be one of the best I've smelt in a minute. Had me feeling like I should of had palm leaves fanning me. It's got a sweet but almost vanilla scent.
Using the Tan Application Mitt I gave a somewhat generous squeeze of the Rose Gold 7-Day Tanner and was met with a medium bronze lotion with some rose gold particles running through, once again smelt very similar to the pre-tan primer. It glided on with ease, I couldn't see any colour guide but keep in mind after the blessed weather we had in the UK the past couple weeks my skin decided it knew how to catch sun. Within minutes of buffing it into my skin with circular motions, the rose gold particles became evident on the skin and it was looking better than most bronzing oils I had used. Skinny Tan what's your secret here? I'd love for this to become a permanent fixture & / or even to have a wash off rose gold body bronzer similar to this cos as I'm writing this, I've not yet washed off the tan - currently sitting with it still on, 3hrs later - needs to be on for 6hrs or left overnight, wasn't gambling with my white sheets and shimmer. But I have read there's no transfer but as I rub my finger along my hand, the shimmer does transfer but it's no doubt easily fixed with a wash plus the tan doesn't stink.
One thing I have noticed about most tans I have used it, even when wearing a mitt, the product seeps through as it turns to more of a liquid. While this is more of a cream formula and I had no issue with any product seeping through the mitt to stain my palms - winner.

This was left on for probably 8hours in total before I showered and washed it off. I noticed in comparison to other tans I've used there was much product that was coming off. Maybe it's cos I didn't use much? Or it's just how the product is formulated. During the night I woke up and could slightly smell the oh familiar tan smell in the crease of my arms but it wasn't potent, I practically sleep with my nose smothered into my arm crevice.
It gives a nice boost to the tan I already have which I like, I'd definitely revisit this if I don't catch anymore sun or later in the year when there is no chance of a sun boost for the skin. I'd like to try other products from the brand without a doubt. The After Glow Gloss is a clear gel texture, it's not sticky and does give a nice sheen to the legs. What I did like about the product overall was that I noticed no orange tinge or streaks - I must be getting good at this tanning game. Plus I'm not a walking oompa loompa therefore 👍

The brand don't make claims they don't live up to. I found that pretty reassuring with the statement regarding the smell, I noted I had a slight smell of it but after two showers after the wash off application shower. The smell is gone completely but it wasn't strong to begin with but it didn't linger like others can do. My skin isn't dried out or irritated, the exfoliating mitt will be amazing to keep the tan fading naturally.

I'd definitely recommend this range - get yourself a Skinny Tan kit of your own and you shouldn't be disappointed in the slightest. The exfoliating mitt, tanner and after glow gloss are stand out products - heck throw the mitt in there too!!!🔥

Skinny Tan - Rose Gold Limited Edition.

I've used a few products from Time Bomb & have quite liked the products so far I've tried. Therefore I'm always happy to try more from the brand and these instantly got my interest because who doesn't like to have a brighter complexion. I do, my skin sometimes can look dull, I like to have a a glow happening and that for me happens when my skin is bright & clear.

Experience.
I like a good face mask, I've tried many - mud, balm, sheet - you name it but never one that fizzes. Got to love a product with a twist. It’s a gel consistency with a self-foaming action that helps to get rid of skin debris, tightens and helps to brighten the face, giving a glow. 4-5 pumps onto a clean face, avoiding the eye area and I can feel this working as soon as it touches my skin, it turns into a fizzy cream but no stinging or irritation it begins to disappear which is when using my fingertips, I gently massage it into my skin before rinsing off after the 5 minutes. Afterwards the skin has a bit of brightness to it this is because of the citrus extract, which gives a brightening boost. A facial in a bottle!

Dull skin

Ingredients.
Aqua (Water), Propanediol, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Ppg-26-buteth-26, Dmdm Hydantoin, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Zinc Pca, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Pca, Arginine, Sodium Lactate, Parfum (Fragrance), Limonene, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Aspartic Acid, Pca, Methylisothiazolinone, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Glycine, Alanine, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Serine, Asiaticoside, Cyanocobalamin, Valine, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid, Isoleucine, Proline, Threonine, Histidine, Phenylalanine, Niacinamide, Ergothioneine.

Experience.
Sometimes those restless or late nights can catch up on us especially if we have a succession of them – for me, it only takes one night! When my skin hasn’t been blessed with a sun kissed glow, it can look very lacklustre and needs a pick me up. Brown Algae is used to soften and smooth the skin, with antibacterial properties, it’s an antioxidant also. It also helps hydration, amino acids within algae helps fatty acids fight inflammation and possibly firm and renew tissue. B3 is normally listened as niacinamide (love B3) which helps get rid of discolorations and enhances the skin's barrier. It’s a good anti aging product.

Overall.
These would be good all year round but especially during A/W for me when there is less sunlight, the skin can look duller and lacking off pep. I really like the effects of the INSTAWOW, especially when it's rubbed into the skin and washed off afterwards and I continue with my skincare. My skin actually looks brighter and feels smoother. The Complexion Cocktail I think over time will give greater benefits due to the ingredients.
