Sick Day(s) Saviour

Men, some bug dat going round hit me wid an ole man cough that near gimme de tissit.

Thanks to the Mistresses' tlc and three things I'm slowly getting back to my usual self.

Sleep

You've heard it a million times but it's oh so true, your body needs rest. I love to sleep but funny enough I haven't been sleeping well for quite some time. So true to form, when you don't give your body the rest it needs it finds a way to take it. Don't be like me; get your rest. Do whatever you have to do to make it happen. That REM sleep is a must.

Water

Liquids in general but preferably ones without sugar. Drink your water.

Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil

This product is labelled as an organic moisturizing oil and it does just that. Apart from the death rattle in my chest the other thing that showed my ill health was my dehydrated skin. Yes, oily skin can be dehydrated.


A few drops of this helped me look a little more alive. As with all beauty oils how much you use depends what your skin's needs are. The great thing about this product is that it can also be used on your cuticles and hair.

What remedies do you use when you have a cold?

p.s. Logan's been kindda stressed too but he's feeling better.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

With Key Ingredients:

Purified Lactic Acid: One of the most hydrating Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Lactic Acid exfoliates the surface layers of t…

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.
