Makeup Revolution Ultra Brow Palette

I haven’t had much experience with Makeup Revolution, I have their Iconic 1, 2 and 3 Palettes and their Golden Sugar Blush palette but I didn’t know until very recently they have added so many more products to their line!

As someone who is new to defining my brows and using brow products, I started out using the Sleek Makeup Eyebrow kit- £8.50. It is a great one for beginners and contains a pigmented wax, a setting powder and all the necessary tools for perfect brows every time. It is however starting to run out. On a recent shopping trip, I was thrilled to see that Superdrug had a Makeup Revolution stand and also stocked their sister products (I may have gone slightly crazy and bought lots, meaning a few more reviews coming soon) So instead of making my usual purchase, I bought the Makeup Revolution Ultra Brow Palette in Medium to dark -£7.99

To be honest, the price is bloody fantastic for all the products you get, compared to the Sleek Kit, where you get two.

Spot on skin care

I have tried several different types of skin care routine in the past but nothing has stuck with me. My most recent routine however is one that is definitely going to stay.

I have been blinded by price, in the past, believing that skin care has to cost a bomb to be effective, in this post I am aiming to show you that this is not the case. I have used everything from Clinique to REN and I haven’t had anywhere near the results I get with my current routine. My skin has never felt so fresh and soft, as well as hydrated. Here are the products I am currently using:

Morning facial wash

When I wake up in the morning, I wash my face with an exfoliating facial scrub. The one I use is from Superdrug and it is one from their own brand of Tea Tree Skincare products.

Tea Tree Skincare Exfoliating Cream Wash  – £3.29 Superdrug

Tea tree oil is known for its antibacterial properties and is a great way to wake your skin up in the morning after a long nights sleep. It also helps fight against pesky breakouts and contains walnut shell granules to help soften the skin.  This product also cleanses skin so I use it for that purpose in the mornings as well.

Spot Solution

Gone are the days as a teenager where you would put a dab of toothpaste on a spot at night to help it clear by the morning (as if I used to do that *cringe*) Every now and again I do suffer from a breakout. Its annoying as I take every step to ensure my skin is clean and fresh to avoid them. When I do get a pesky little spot, I like to use a quick fix solution to stop the redness and ensure that no one can see it! I use a spot stick, which again is from Tea Tree Skincare by Superdrug, its called the Action Spot Stick

Tea Tree Skincare Action Spot Stick – £3.29  Superdrug

A thin layer of this relieves any soreness and also works to reduce redness leaving me feeling confident I can leave the house!! Plus it contains tea tree and we know how good that is for spots on the face.

Cleanser, Toner and Moisturiser

Growing up my mum used to lecture me about how important it was to Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise, now I am older I wish I had listened and started doing it in my teens as I feel I have ruined my skin by wearing make up as a teen and not protecting my it properly. But, better late than never.
