Sunday's and Returning to Work

So this is what I wore Sunday.
Sundays have always been the day that we spend time together as a family as it's the only one we're all at home for (I mentioned my husbands crazy hours before :( ) This one more then most because I was due back to work this week which was both nerve wrecking and exciting at the same time.

Happy Saturday!!!
I've spent mine with family having a lovely BBQ.
Today I'm wearing some of my favourites. I'm a sucker for anything paisley and the colour of these trousers are perfect for summer. I've been living in them they make a nice change from typical denim jeans. These are also great for summer whether worn with trousers or a dress.

Green Angel

As I mentioned on the Facebook page last week I purchased the green angel toner and daily moisturiser after previously using the cleanser. Some of you may of already heard of the brand as it's been featured on xpose and Ireland fm as well as winning RSVP beauty awards and IMAGE beauty awards. I heard about this brand through Tara Makeups page, who recommended the eye cream. I was on the look for a new cleanser at the time so decided to give it ago. I loved the sound of the natural ingredients and that the products aren't aimed at particular skin types. I would have quite an oily t-zone where as the rest of my face is quite dry and sensitive with a bit of rosacea (red colouring in my cheeks) so I get it very hard to get products when there mostly aimed at one or the other.

At first I was using the cleanser with a toner I already had. I absolutely loved it!! It was so gentle and the natural smelling seaweed and other ingredients made it smell like products used in a spa facial. After cleansing my skin didn't feel dry or striped it felt moisturised. I found the cream just cut through my makeup so easily I even use it to remove my eye makeup. Like I said I was using a toner I already had but as I was coming to the end of my cleanser I decided I was going to pick up the toner as well while I was repurchasing it. And luckily the pharmacy had an offer on of the cleanser, toner and moisturiser for just €30!! (Coyles for those of you who live near me :)) 

(Essential oils/Active ingredients: Irish seaweed extracts, Cumcumber and Sage) 

After using all three for the past week I have to say I'm really impressed. There's a real kick to the toner, not like a striping feeling more like the pow you get when you use mouth wash (if that makes sense to you) it leaves your skin feeling really refreshed and tingly.

With the moisturiser a little bit goes a long way! I apply a tiny dot to my forehead, cheeks and chin and that does my whole face and I use the excess on my hands. It feels so light which makes it perfect for using before you apply makeup as it doesn't feel like the makeup is just sliding of your face. 

(Essential oils/Active Ingredients: Vitimin E, Jasmine, Neroli, Lavender, Mandarin, Sweet Almond Oil, Irish Seaweed, Vitimin E)
Why skin care is important: 

Cleansing is important to 1. remove all makeup 2. Remove excess oil and dirt that builds up on our faces throughout the day 3. To exfoliate the dead skin cells off to leave brighter skin. 

But toning is also very important as it takes away any last traces of cleanser and helps to close the pores so they don't later clog up. Don't forget to avoid the delicate skin in the eye area.

As you've removed all excess oil etc from 
Your skin by cleansing and toning it is important to moisturise your skin to rehydrate it even if you have oily skin. People tend to use 'drying' products on oily skin to control it when really that just tells your skin to produce more oil! 

A good skin care routine is important to keep your skin in good condition and while it's in good condition your makeup will look better also. 

After using these three now I have the face scrub, eye cream and night cream on my wish list.

I hope this post was helpful.. We're nearly there it's almost the weekend!
