#AD #Affiliate

First things first I received these as a PR package, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. I do have an affiliate code in which I would earn a small commission from.

But before I get into what I received, let me tell you how today’s been. It’s been PANTS!! I’m not feeling physio this week, I have low energy (no reason why really) and ALL my joints hurt. Curse you #EhlersDanlosSyndrome

I have started to get back into a routine with putting make up on, back into my skincare and generally looking after myself once more. It’s so easy to fall in a trap of not caring.

Especially when you aren’t leaving the house 95% of the week, and working out a lot too.

I definitely don’t wear make up to #Hydrotherapy or while I do #Physio at home. So my interest had dropped over Jam, Feb and up until now really.

That said I have a wonderful bundle I was sent from Gerard Cosmetics

I got Hollywood Blvd Glitter Lipstick. ( Love this the most, I already have Swipe Right Glitter Lipstick. I love the sparkle they give) Good staying power too!

Rodeo Lipstick. A dusky hue of Pink, I love the creamy texture, and femininity of the colour.

Vintage Rose Lipstick. A real English rose look, it’s exactly what it says it is. Perfect day wear colour this spring.

Divalicious (Lighted) yes seriously it lights up and you have a handy mirror! Lip gloss. (This impresses me so much with the Light, clubbing gloss wearing just got easier!!) Again quite dusky pink, hint of mauve.

Pouty Princess (Lighted) Lip gloss, well the name sold it too me really. (I go for similar colours as they suit me best. So brighter pink, but so cute,. Almost retro vibe) again this is Lighted and has a Mirror too.

Kiss Assist Lip Plumper, I really don’t like lip plumpers as a rule, as they hurt me. (Especially soap & glory) like a million wasps are on my lips. however I wanted to try and I’m so glad I did, as this has NO sting, only tingle, and cooling. I didn’t feel too sticky either. And it looks lovely on top of the lipsticks too.

Super booster whitening pen, I’ve not tried it yet, as I’m awaiting a good occasion or event to go to to make it worth it. But I do hear excellent reviews on this.

Lastly I had to get #GCSquad Merch as I fully support Jennifer Gerard and her cosmetics brand, the team have been wonderful to me, so warm, so friendly, and super supportive too.

Thank you everyone, and if you do want to order you can use my link here and get 30% off your entire order. This ships from the USA so be mindful of customs and shipping. But to all my USA buddies, you’ll find shipping good for you.

Even #Zoella latest range is shipping from the US now, as it’s becoming more popular to have American brands popularity grow over here in the UK.

Day 25 skincare routine

Now it’s no surprise that I’ve not really been into skincare as such since surgery, as standing at the mirror and sink, is harder than you think.

I have however been using quick and easy holy grails, such as the #NipFab Dragons blood cleansing pads (these are a godsend)

Quick easy and fuss free pads, make my skin feel refreshed, super clean and nurtured too.

I use one of these two after the #NipFab depending on time of day, so daytime I opt for the #Ren Evercalm Day cream, a thicker creamy moisturizer, feels spa like and with essential oils.

Then in the evening #Inkey Hyaluronic Acid Serum for that super hydrating feel that can sit on the skin all night. This is my favourite of all time!!

A while back I would this cream on a competition held by a fellow beauty blogger. And this balm is an absolute lifesaver. I’ve used on my husband’s burnt fingers and I’m currently using on my scar! It’s thick like vaseline, it creates a protective barrier that’s waterproof, while healing the scar too. It’s a dream.

For lips and dry patches on heels, and it’s lovely. Usually lip balms for me make you use them continuously after the first go. But this one, you can use once, and your lips don’t go super dry afterwards. It’s solid version of #Palmers Cocoa Butter.

For my legs, the compression stockings cause such reptile skin, constantly dry and flaky skin. I use #Ameliorate Exfoliating Cream, I once got it in a subscription box, and then because I loved it so, my husband bought me a larger one for my birthday in July. I’ve deliberately saved it until now to use. And it’s perfect for this post surgery recovery. A touch of pampering when you feel so dull and drained.
