Revisit | First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser

Hello lovely #Mavenz

I am always on the hunt for affordable and appealing skincare. My routine is very simple and usually effective. Cleanse, tone, moisturise AND apply some good old Carmex lip balm.

On my last trip to NYC I needed a mild but acne fighting/clearing face wash. So I bought the FAB Pure Skin Cleanser. Here in Barbados my skin sucks. I breakout when I: sweat, eat chocolate, go
to the beach; man whatever I do, I bump up. In colder climates I wake up flawless! So, my goal for 2016 is to achieve clear even toned skin. Yessss!!

So the 1 oz was my beat after IMATS last year and let me tell you, the PROS? Major!

Claim to Fame: 
W/ FAB Antioxidant Booster
Remove:
Surface Oils
Makeup
Dirt
Grime
Safe for Sensitive Skin

PROS:
It really does remove all of my makeup
It doesn't break me out
Has a pleasant fragrance
My skin feels ultra clean 
It's inexpensive!! ($20USD from Sephora)

Cons:
Can be drying around my nose
If it goes up my nostrils it burns like heck (don't ask how it happened it just did)
Not available locally (but you CAN order and ship to a box like Aeropost etc.)

So it is a must have!!! One of my favourite cleansing products of all time.

You never know, we may bring in a few sometime. (Wink wink)

Xoxo
Heidi.

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.

#FlashbackFriday | Beauty in Panama

Panama is most definitely beautiful. It was never a place I intended to visit so let me begin by thanking Innovate Barbados and COPA Airlines for the opportunity. COPA Airlines sponsored Innovate Barbados 2018 and provided three tickets for attendees to any COPA Airlines destination in the Caribbean or Central America. Panama was being promoted as a shopping destination - cause yuh know how Bajans love tuh shop!

If you're new to this blog, when a post starts with 'Beauty at/in...' it's not about the places' landscapes. It's a beauty blog after all; we're all about what cosmetics are available.


Having done no research about Panama, I was shocked to see the variety of brands available there. Panama is home to the largest mall in the Americas: Albrook Mall.


Very popular brands are available in Panama; whether it's via stand alone stores or counters in Cave Shepherd  / JC Penny-esque department stores. They're a lot of pictures ahead to be prepared to s…
