If you are prone to the occasional break out, where one volcanic spot is stealing all the attention from your otherwise okay skin, then these are a god send. They are little round circles, coming in three (all small mind) sizes, that are designed to cover your pimples in such cases. To draw an odd comparison if you have ever used the Compeed blister plasters (they are the best) it works very much the same but on a smaller scale. The clear plasters form a protective layer over the spot, absorbing any excess sebum or pus, whilst soothing redness and inflammation. I have found them to be tiny saviours on many occasions! Now, to manage your expectations, they do not necessarily heal your spots magically but they do go a long way in assisting the process. If like me, you are likely to pick at spots these are perfect to stop the habit and keep the area clean. I have been known to wear them in public, but whilst not visible on a fleeting look they are definitely not invisible so do not wear them on a first date, job interview, to a party etc.
They are a great price too, only £3.99! Really cannot recommend these enough and so good to have stashed away incase of a skin emergency!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN AND GLOSSIER UK LAUNCH MONTH!
My second Glossier delivery arrived this morning! My delivery was smaller this time and the majority was reordering items I bought the first time- so that’s a testament in itself! This time in my Phase 1 set, for a change, I chose birthday balm which I am alarmingly excited about. It sparkles and smells of cake. No more explanation needed.
Please see below the link to my first review where in more detail I go through lots of the products.
Tomorrow, I am attending a Glossier Cocktail Party in Manchester which I’m super excited about!
Beauty Review: Glossier
Sol de Janeiro, Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, £18– For a peachy bum on the beach this summer you need this cream. It’s enhanced with guarana, a native Amazonian plant that is one of the most potent forms of caffeine on the planet – perfect for stimulating circulation and keeping posteriors at their smoothest.
Mio, Body Brush, £14.50 – For anyone with cellulite or jiggly bits that they would like a little smoother and firmer this product is perfect. I have been using this body brush for a month now and have notice my skin feels smoother and firmer. I also find the process of brushing itself quite therapeutic!
OUAI, Rose Hair and Body Oil, £25– Though it seems to be selling out everywhere I really want to get my hands on this product. I have yet to try any products from the OUAI range (fun fact Ouai translates roughly to YASS in french) but I love Jen Atkins styling and the brands aesthetic.

My patience finally snapped and I couldn’t wait for Glossier to offer UK delivery any longer. After a long winded- and costly- process I have finally got Glossier!
I purchased both the Step 1 Skincare set and the Set 2 Cosmetics, along with super pure serum and cloud paint in ‘Beam’. The packaging is amazing, everything arrived in white boxes, with the recognisable pink pouches inside. The products were actually surprisingly miniature, but I think for both the lipstick and brow wand it actually makes the products much easier to use. The cleanser, foundation and serum also have clever pump or drop action tops which means you only get as much product as you need.
The Step 1 Skincare kit includes the milky jelly cleanser, priming moisturiser, balm dotcom and the perfecting skin tint in medium (this has recently removed from this set but can be individually purchased). All the products are quite light, not at all harsh on your skin, and leave my skin feeling balanced. The pure serum I also tried is amazing! I’ve had far less break outs since using this once a day before moisturising and any blemishes have been quickly minimised.
The cosmetics are similar in that they are light on the skin, looking to enhance rather than create a make-up look which I personally prefer. Stand outs are the stretch concealer which does just that, despite being well pigmented it sits so comfortably on the skin with a soft, moisturised feel unlike any other concealer I have had before and the boy brow which gives me the full eyebrows I have wanted for so long.
I could not recommend their products enough, particularly for anyone who prefers a natural make-up look. I’m just holding out for UK shipping to reorder!
