Nivea Rich Moisturising Day Cream | REVIEW

If you read my skincare routine post as part of the #teenblogseries then you'd know that i didn't have much of a skincare routine in place. As the colder weather has been rolling in, I've noticed a considerable change in my skin and it hasn't been dealing death with the cold, windy weather. I decided to buy myself a cheap little moisturiser to use in the mornings as my skin was feeling rather dry so i picked up the Nivea Daily Essentials Light Moisturiser for Dry and Sensitive Skin for £4.19 in Boots.

Not having used many moisturisers before I didn't really know what to expect with this but it has improved my skin to no end. I apply it in the morning after cleansing and before my applying my makeup. I use a tiny pea sized amount and i find this covers the whole of my face so its very economic to use. This also sinks in really well making your skin feel light and refreshed as opposed to greasy, and caked like you can find with a lot of the cheaper moisturisers. This is an amazing bonus when you don't have ages to wait in the mornings before applying your makeup!

The fact this comes in a squeezey tube as well is so handy as it's really easy to store and move should you need to take it anywhere overnight. It's really helped my skin survive this winter and is definitely going to be something i repurchase!

Maybelline BROWdrama in Transparent | REVIEW

Ive always had incredibly thick, bushy eyebrows but since everybody has been obsessing over eyebrows I decided i needed to do something to tame them a little, and this is where this little beauty comes in. The Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara in transparent has become an absolute saviour in my everyday makeup routine, by turning unruly brows into defined masterpieces.Essentially the Maybelline Brow Drama is just, in this case, a clear mascara for the brows but it feels like so much more than that. It holds my brows in place all day without letting any unruly hairs escape or smudging any of the powder underneath. The brush on this is also incredibly unique with a large sphere at the end which allows you to only apply the product to the brows instead of it getting everywhere else, this is so handy as a lot of brow mascaras I've found are completely useless and you end up getting the product everywhere. The brush also picks up just the right amount of product too so it's not at all wasteful and you don't have to wipe any of it off before use. Overall this is a really great product for anyone who has bushy brows that need that extra help to stay in place all day. Its £4.99 from Boots as well so it's not going to break the bank, but its well worth it for perfecting those brows!
