Friday Fives: Top 5 Beauty Products Lovin’ Lately

Hey loves,

“There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others” – Mandy Hale

Coming across this quote above lead me to todays post. Finding the right beauty product for me can be a little tough since i have oily/acne prone/ sensitive skin, which makes me super careful of what i place on my skin.

In the past month, i have been using these five products and they have completely won over my heart. You might have come across some on my instagram page, but here they are

1. Bio-oil: i have always heard about this product but had speculations about it until i read the product label and found it had ingredients helped with acne. I just knew i had to get it, it cost about 1350 naira which to me is not too pricy

2. Sleek makeup lipstick in nude & 3. Classic lipgloss in nude [not sure if its actually called nude or if it has a different name] these two has been my fave lip combo. Its a perfect combination of not too much but its there which i love

4. Visibly clear 2-in-1 wash & mask from Neutrogena;  which i got for [3000 naira] been using it solely has a face mask. I usually leave it on for about 5 minutes and i noticed the acne scars on my face getting lighter (its not bleaching) and less and less pimples on my face.

5. Pond’s oil control talc which contains orange peel extract [smells like orange too] & helps with sun protection. Been using this for more than a month now since i was reacting to my former brown loose powder and this has been a pretty good replacement. *sorry picture not taken* 

Which beauty products have you been lovin lately?

    I normally never buy nude shades when it comes to lipstick but that sleek one was awesome!

    I actually have not tried the glosses from Sleek but I adore their blushes so will check this out, I am in the hunt for a new gloss and I love how affordable the Sleek brand is. I have been loving the ABH subculture palette recently, I know there is a lot of controversy surrounding it but apart from the fallout, the colours are gorgeous and I love using them
