Product Review: MAC Prep + Prime Lip Base and Clarins Exfoliating Cleanser

I have used both the MAC Prep + Prime Lip Base and Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract for some time now, and I think they are worth writing about.

 

 

MAC Prep + Prime Lip Base

I apply this MAC Prep + Prime Lip Base first before applying my lipstick. I have used it for years now, and I think it is one of the best lip primers at the moment.

Here is the product description –

A colour-free lipstick base that adds light moisture, smoothes and refines the lips. Improves the appearance of the applied lip products.

 

 

PROS

  1. My lips tend to get really dry, this moisturises my lips perfectly!
  2. My lipstick stays on all day without needing a top up, and without cracks, thanks to this fab lip base.
  3. It can be used alone as a lip balm.
  4. It has a lovely texture and smells good too.
  5. A little is all that is needed.
  6. I like the compact size, so easy to pop in a small bag.
  7. It is available to buy at many beauty shops for £14.

 

CONS

None.

I can’t fault this product at all. I recommended to anyone dealing with dry lips, or struggling to apply matte lipsticks. This MAC Prep + Prime Lip Base is all you need.

 

Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract

I use this Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser once a week, and I have done so for a few weeks now.

Here is the product description –

The Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract is a spa-fresh exfoliating facial cleanser that polishes-away make-up, embedded impurities and spent surface cells in one time-saving step to reveal the glowing skin beneath. The bi-phase scrub both cleanses and exfoliates, gently removing everything that makes the skin look dull, leaving the skin smooth, soft and luminous. Orange extract works to soften, refresh and revive. Moringa Seed extract, with anti-pollution benefits, purifies and refines the skin and helps to restore its natural radiance. Gentle Silica Microbeads tackle clogged pores, exfoliate and renew. The exfoliating scrub leaves skin comfortable and ultimately refreshed. Suitable for all skin types.

 

 

PROS

  1. I love the compact packaging.
  2. It smells amazing, I could sniff the orange scent all day.
  3. It is a great multi-tasking product – Cleansing and Exfoliating at the same time.
  4. It is great for all skin types.
  5. It is easily available to buy at many beauty shops for £21 for a 100ml.
  6. It leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and clean.
  7. You only need a small amount, a little goes a long way.

 

CONS

  1. It stings the eyes if they come in contact, so do not apply around the eye area.

 

I love this Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser. I love how it makes my skin glow. I do recommend it and I can see myself using this product for many years to come.

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.
