Product Review: Garnier Ultimate Blends Nourishing Oil

I love my oils, especially in the colder months. It feels amazing using a nourishing oil after a warm shower. Apart from it feeling so good, my skin also thanks me for it.

In my pursuit of a nourishing oil, after running out of my Bio Oil, I came across this New Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Nourishing Oil in my local Boots Store, and decided to give it a go.

Here are my thoughts –

PROS

  1. Beautiful compact packaging.
  2. It is a non sticky oil.
  3. It is very affordable at £3.99 for a 150ml bottle.
  4. You can get this nourishing oil in most stores – Boots, Superdrug eBay, Amazon, Asda, and so on.
  5. It contains virgin olive oil, which is great for the skin.
  6. I love the fragrance, it is very light and fresh.
  7. The oil is absorbed into my skin very quickly.

CONS

  1. This is for body use only, and should not be applied on the face. I always have to remember this fact, and it can be a bit of a hassle. I rather have an oil, I can apply from head to toe.

Overall, I would recommend this Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Nourishing Oil to anyone in need of a nourishing oil, especially if you have a very dry skin, but I don’t see myself buying this particular oil again because of the inconvenience of not being able to use it on my face.

Avoid these 5 beauty mistakes

Now that we are in a New Year, we need to give ourselves the opportunity to start off our skincare routine on the right foot. Yes, we may be 2 months into the New Year, but it’s not too late to get started. To help you get started, here are some common beauty mistakes that ladies make day-in and day-out. It will take some time to adjust but it’ll be worth it.

Mistake #1: You neglect your under-eyes when it comes to applying sunscreen

This is not something that we hear of often. Sunscreen is great for our skin. It keeps off the harsh effects of the ultraviolet rays of the sun on our skin. But most times when we apply sunscreen on our face, we tend to skip the skin under our eyes.

The skin on our under-eye is very thin and thus, susceptible to being damaged easily. Although it may hurt the eyes when the cream find its way there, the skin under your eyes will thank you so long as you are extra careful.

 

Mistake #2: You sleep with your makeup on

Although I know that there are days when you can be extremely tired, leaving your makeup on your face is one thing you should never allow yourself to do. Makeup contains chemicals that can be extremely harmful on your skin when it stays on your skin for too long. That’s one on the causes of skin conditions like blocked pores and acne.

So, make it a duty to remove every trace of makeup on the face. This is because any trace of makeup residue on your skin could be harmful to your skin.

 

Mistake #3: You’re applying a bronzer that’s a bit too red for your skin

Don’t get caught making this mistake! Us ladies want to achieve that rosy-cheeks look, but you need to make sure that every time you apply your bronzer, the colour should be as natural as possible. You can do this by selecting shades that are closer to the colour of your skin. The more natural it looks the better it suits your skin.

Make sure that as you apply your bronzer, you blend it in with the rest of your face. This will help even out the colour instead of it being so dark and concentrated at your cheek area.

Mistake #4: You’re not treating your skin according to your skin type

Everyone has a different skin type and so each skin type needs to be shown a special kind of love. What most people don’t understand is that they believe that just because one skin care routine worked for one of their friends, it will work perfectly well for them too.

The truth is that the most effective skin care routine is the one that pays special attention to your skin type. So if you have dry skin, you would need to moisturize more and use more oil-based products than someone who has oily or combination skin type.

 

Mistake #5: You neglect your neck

From applying makeup to skin care routines, the neck is one of the most neglected parts of your face. Some ladies forget to blend in the makeup all the way to the neck. Some don’t apply any makeup on the neck region making the makeup on their face look more like a mask.

Although the neck is not as exposed as your face, the skin on your neck is thin and would require a lot of care. So make sure that you exfoliate, cleanse and moisturize just as often as you do your face.

Beauty Muse: Selena Gomez

The stunning Selena Gomez is a Beauty Muse. This pretty young woman grew on TV before our very eyes, and has transformed into a stunning beauty muse. I remember watching her on TV – Barney and Friends. She was a cute little girl, and she still has her cute features. She hasn’t lost her baby face yet, she could pass for a teenager easily. I love that about her. Many of her peers are walking around looking 10 times older with all the “work” they have had done already, but Selena Gomez is a natural!

I am not a fan of Selena Gomez’s movies or songs. But I do admire her beauty. I read up some recent interviews she had, and got some of her beauty tips and tricks for your reading pleasure –

 

Worst Beauty Advice She Ever Received

I just can’t understand when—and no offense—people have to wear makeup all the time, and they’ll say, ‘Oh, you can sleep with a tinted moisturizer or a self tanner on your face and you can wake up.’ For me, I just think that’s not my vibe, plus I do breakout. I don’t know if it’s bad advice, I just think it’s kind of to each their own. For me, I can’t really sleep with things on my body or tinted things just because I get worried. It’s not my vibe.

 

I am exactly the same. I can’t sleep with makeup on, but I can apply a light moisturiser.

Her Skincare Routine

I like to have a good morning regimen. I use my Clarisonic in the shower with the Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Skin Renewing Peel Wash. I do that maybe four or five times a week, so my skin has a chance to breathe before all the madness starts. Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Radiance Booster on your cheekbones and around your eyes helps make you look alive. But what’s really great is First Aid Beauty’s Eye Duty Triple Remedy—if you get dark circles, it’s the shit. I’ll put it on, it feels all good and cold, go have a coffee, and that’s the bomb. The Biore Deep Cleansing Strips make me feel really accomplished when I do them, too—plus they work!

 

I like the sound of her skincare routine. It sounds really good. What do you think?
