Skincare of the Week 17 January 2016

Well, as if you can’t tell, I spent this week acclimatising myself to the Tata Harper products I treated myself to over Christmas!  Inital thoughts are positive so far, extremely positive in fact, but I need a little more time with them before I review them in full. I wasn’t too sure about the Tata Harper Refreshing Cleanser at first, it’s a little outside my […]

Skincare of the Week 20.12.15

I got a bit obsessed with a couple of products this week, namely the Pixibeauty Skintreats H20 Skindrink serum and Glowtion Day Dew moisturiser.  Mixing them together, and using in place of my regular moisturiser has lead to a lovely, fresh glow that’s rather addictive.  I find the cream just a little too glow-y on it’s own, but mixed with the H20, it’s ideal.  I […]

Skincare of the Week – 13 December 2015

Not a hugely exciting week skincare-wise, admittedly – I’m still ill and still look like death warmed up (if death was into the fourth week of a cough that makes them puke at regular intervals, that is) – but I did get my Caroline Hirons Skincare box this week, so from Tuesday onwards you can see the Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum, and the Dr Dennis […]

Skincare of the Week 06.12.15

Having sensitive skin whilst the seasons are changing can be awkward, certainly I find that I have to be extra careful with the active ingredients in skincare when the weather is at its least predictable.  Still being ill with a cough really isn’t helping, either. My skin has been on the verge of being really reactive this week (I can usually tell as tiny bumps […]

Omorovicza Moor Mud Set

Yes, I’m back to Christmas gift sets!  What?  I love them!  And this Moor Mud Set from Omorovicza  is not just a brilliant way to try what is, frankly, one of the best skincare products on the planet, it’s a bargain, too. Containing a full-size Thermal Cleansing Balm (which normally retails at £46), a third-size Refining Facial Polisher (100ml full size retails at £65) and […]

Skincare of the Week 8th November 2015

A bit of a mixed bag this week, skincare wise.  Looking at the pictures all in one place kind of makes it clear that I have certain patterns in product usage – Pixi Glow Tonic, for example, I tend to use for two days then swap to Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Toner.  The one product I’ve used consistently this week has been Medik8 Red Alert Serum, […]

Pixi Skintreats Nourishing Cleansing Balm

I’m slowly working my way through reviewing (almost) the entire Pixi beauty skincare range, and this week it’s the turn of Pixi Skintreats Nourishing Cleansing Balm.  A gently rose-scented balm, this is great for makeup removal, and leaves skin soft and cleansed after use. A mix of almond oil, coco butter and shea butter fortified with vitamin E, this is a very soft balm, which […]

Skincare of the Week 25/10/15

 It has been a long and busy week here at Get Lippie, and my lifestyle has shown a bit in my skincare choices, I’ve swapped to a more hydrating routine, and I’ve slipped a few new products in too.  I’ll be concentrating on some night-time routines this week.  More after the jump. Early on in the week, my skin was still a bit congested, so […]

Skincare of the Week 11.10.15

No blog posts last week because I was unwell last Sunday and I simply couldn’t face writing in the slightest.  I still kept up with my skincare routines though, because I do (occasionally) have standards …  The routine above was a night-time one mid-week, from when I had a congested chin – complete with zit!  I haven’t had a zit in a couple of years […]

Zelens Intense Defence Antioxidant Serum

  I was chatting to a dermatologist recently, and she mentioned that the future of skincare lies in antioxidant products.  Now, as I was already trialling Zelens Intense Defense Antioxidant Serum, this pleased me somewhat, but left me realising that the only thing I really know about oxidisation is that it is what causes iron to rust, and, as I definitely don’t want my face […]

Pixi Skintreats Rose Oil Blend

  There has been a lot of Pixi Skintreats love in the Lippie household recently, and the Rose Oil Blend is currently my favourite facial oil.  Based on a sweet almond oil base, with jojoba, dog-rosehip, geranium and damascene rose oils, it’s a very light texture, so sinks into the skin easily, and doesn’t make my combination-oily skin greasy.  It smells only gently of roses, […]

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads

If you’ve spent any time hanging around my instagram page, then you’ll have seen these on my daily skincare routine posts a lot recently.  I do love a pre-soaked acid pad, they’re usually thinner and more textured than a cotton wool pad, and so you get a good amount of toner on your skin, rather than soaked up by the cotton wool. First Aid Beauty […]
