This Week I've Been Wearing... #4.



This weeks picks contained a few new products that will soon have full reviews on here. My skincare routine has completely changed my skin and it looks so healthy that I now wear BB Creams instead of foundations, which has really shaken up my beauty routines. 

My favourite skincare brand is REN, it's really improved my skin over the last year and it's the main reason my skin has gone from being oily and blemish prone to normal and pretty much clear! 
I've been using the No1 Purity Cleansing Balm recently, it's a natural balm cleanser which takes off all makeup and leaves skin feeling soft and cleansed. This has replaced my Bioderma and other makeup removing cleansers as it's so easy to use and takes off every last drop of makeup - including mascara. 
After this, I tend to slather on my favourite face masks as of late, starting with another REN gem, the Smooth and Renew mask. After my favourite REN Glycolactic Radiance mask finished, I thought I would try Smooth and Renew as it's the same idea (aimed at more sensitive skins too), it contains antioxidants and essential oils to exfoliate and detox the skin, meaning my skin feels so smooth afterwards and looks bright and clear. 

I usually have one night a week where I apply a couple of face masks, I find my skin really gets a good deep detox and cleanse. After using Smooth and Renew by REN, I pop on my current favourite moisturising mask from Antipodes, their Aura Manuka Honey Mask. This is an incredible product for cleansing and clearing out skin, whilst also giving it a good moisturise. This tingles my skin a little bit which lets me know it's working, and my skin feels incredible after use. 

As my skin is looking healthier and brighter recently, I am now wearing a much more minimal base. I start with my trusty Origins VitaZing moisturiser, this has a sheer tint to give the perfect healthy glow to skin, it makes my skin look like I've been on holiday! This makes my base look clear and imperfections are hidden, and so I apply an old favourite next - Smashbox Photo Finish primer. I've been using this on and off for quite a few years now and it's a product I always go back to. It smooths over my skin and creates such a flawless finish, really helping to minimise pores and keep my makeup on all day. 

I've been only wearing BB creams recently and I've fallen in love, this week I've been adoring this Bobbi Brown number. It makes my skin look really natural and clear without looking like I'm wearing a lot of makeup. I don't feel I need powder afterwards and it stays all day.
Lastly, I've been trying to get a good amount of use from my MAC blushers recently as I do have quite the collection (see video here). Mocha is a dusty pink/plum shade and not one I would usually go for. It's a lovely flush of colour and the perfect shade for Autumn. 

What did you think of this weeks most worn?
