 Eves of St Agnes Skincare Review

Hey beauties. Now if anything excites me, it is finding a new skincare brand. Almost as much as fining a new mascara. Maybe as I am forever on a quest for perfect skin and I do seem to think every cream and lotion I try will change my skin. No surprise I've been a bit disappointed in my so far

Today I have a newish company Eves of St Agnes started by a lady called Emma, and is handmade right here in Britain. Brownies points for that, and with chemicals kept to an minimum, and this means no parabens, no SLS, mineral oils, or artificial perfumes. I'm in love before I've even opened the box and seen the packaging.

I have been lucky enough to be trying the Hydrating Facial SilkBamboo Exfoliating Polish and Nourishing Cleansing Cream. Paired with a cleansing cloth to remove makeup and cleanse my skin just how it should be, the Bamboo Exfoliating Polish is a no soap formula, so doesn’t strip my sensitive skin—that means no tight, dry feeling. The Hydrating Facial Silk will have its own post very soon. As it is just that good. Trust me. 

Don’t even get me started on the zesty orange scent. It must be the Cocoa Butter, Honey and Sweet Orange, but seriously, I don't think I have ever smelled such nice skincare. I really can't. Since I have never been a fan of the infamous Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish (whole other story) this cleansing pair has finally made me see the fuss around hot cloth cleansers. The 3 Trial products I've tried are seriously good, and besides the scent (which I still can't get over) I am seriously impressed by Eves of St Agnes, and I think they could be a brand to watch.

Posts that have made me happy this week


Alexa Chung IT Kate Moss
Bluewater Meet Up Posts. My first ever Bluewater meet up couldn't of been any nicer, and Just Julie and Sian Marie beauty blogs have done much better posts than I could ever do on the meet.

Low maintenance, work appropriate lipsticks from The Private Life of a Girl. The title says it all really. One of my life struggles sorted in a single post.

Rosy Chicc Lush Handy Gurugu Hand Cream Review. No I am not happy that Andrea didn't like this cream, that would be a tad mean. But I am happy I didn't buy this, as I was stupidly close last week. 

Becky BedBug Becky Reads Company. Again, I am not happy that Becky wasn't overwhelmed by Company Magazines last print edition. I am happy I am not the only one. Not the way I had expected Company to go. 

And finally, Beautiface Birthday Post Just how cute was April as a baby? That smile. Like I need to say anymore expect a Belated Happy Birthday!

Sudocrem Skin Care Cream


Sudocrem Skin Care Cream



No, I've not gone entirely mad, yet. But today I have one of my most loved skincare items ever to grace my dressing table. The Sudocrem Skin Care Cream. Once more famous with mothers as a nappy cream, but I think Sudocrem is now less known for that, and more for what I have been using it for years as, a pretty damn good spot treatment. 

Not that I am alone, Cheryl Cole, Kimberley Walsh, Jessica Lowndes, Lauren Pope, Chloe Sims and Amanda Holden, who claim the cream is their secret beauty weapon. Although considering I've been using Sudocrem for years, I like to think its them who copied me, obviously...

This is the first time I have used Sudocrem in a tube, before I was scooping it out of a giant pot which made quite a bit of a mess and everything you touch. Not to mention the hygiene, handbag friendly factors. Nor is it yet socially acceptable. 

There is no point waffling with this, as its just too good. I am not sure what makes this so effective but it really kills my spots. Even those horrendous face volcanos. It might be the antiseptic ingredients but I can pretty much guarantee that applying this at night will leave my skin much clearer in the morning, if a with a bit of white crust, but I can't have it all. 

I also find that this helps calm the redness and seems to speed up healing process of those red marks we get from erm, squeezing. All of this for £2.11? You have no reason whatsoever for this not to be part of your skincare routine. None.
