My Current Skincare Wish List feat Nars & Panasonic

I’m currently on a quest to good skin care. My love for full coverage makeup and this hot summer sun are not compatible and so I need to find a way to make my natural skin glow and looks just great as my face with makeup. Getting into a regime is fun when you have new products to try out. Here’s a wish list of some skin care products that I want to try out and that I’ve heard good things about. I’ve included a variety of products from the Panasonic 3-in-1 Micro-Current Facial Enhancer to some questionable Korean products I’ve never heard of before. If you’ve tried any of the following let me know!

NARS Restorative Night Treatment

Did you know that your body regenerates a lot of new cells overnight while you are sleeping? Beauty sleep is an actual thing! I need to get my hands on a night cream that will turn me into Sleeping Beauty. On my wish list is the NARS Restorative Night Treatment. It is a face oil that has an innovative gel-matrix technology that transforms in texture to deliver moisture on a deeper level. The gel melts into skin and forms a hydrating veil of oil that locks in nourishing moisture while you sleep. When you wake up you will have soft, smooth revitalized skin that reflects light with true luminosity. I always hear good things about NARS so as soon as I have £60 to splurge I will be trying this out.

Panasonic 3-in-1 Micro-Current Facial Enhancer

The Panasonic 3-in-1 Micro-Current Facial Enhancer is a tool designed to deeply cleanse the skin. It has an end which heats up and a brush end to cleanse. The good thing with heat on your skin before you clean it is that it opens up your pores and allows you to get a deeper cleanse. Where science meets beauty, the Facial Enhancer seems like the perfect skin care tool to remove all traces of makeup and impurities. If you have amazing products this tool will maximize the benefits of them and their toning and moisturizing capabilities.

Mizon All In One Snail Repair Cream

Have you ever heard of snail snot as a skincare product? It is a key ingredient in a lot of South Korean products and apparently it does wonders for your skin. The Mizon All In One Snail Repair Cream is made with Snail secretion filtrate. It has skin-regenerative benefits and helps improve the appearance of fine lines, and helps reduce the appearance of acne scarring and blemishes. It is suited for combination skin type and people with oily skin!

IT Cosmetics’ Bye Bye Makeup™ 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Balm

After a long day of makeup wearing, there is nothing more important than your cleansing routine. I love full coverage foundations and so I always need to cleanse properly. The IT Cosmetics’ Bye Bye Makeup™ melting balm is a revolutionary fast-acting cleanser, make-up remover and anti-aging serum all in one! It has been developed with plastic surgeons and is a sulphate-free formula which infuses your skin with deep-cleansing extracts and botanicals to completely remove all traces of impurities without drying or causing irritation. Imagine being able to combine your night time routine into one step? Life-saving, get this in my life!

Kiehls’s Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque

I hear a lot about the Kiehl’s product range; from celebrities to Instagram. I came across this Rare Earth masque which helps purify and detoxify your skin while minimizing the appearance of enlarged pores. Flawless skin? I am ready! It is formulated with Amazonian white clay to gently draw out oil, dirt and toxins that can clog pores. Their ingredients are naturally-derived and they’re a brand that’s been around since the 1800s! I’ve got to try this out – everyone loves a face masque.

Panasonic 3-in-1 Micro-Current Facial Enhancer

I’m on a journey to great skin care so I willing to try out anything! From The Panasonic Facial Enhancer to the Mizon Snail Snot! There’s a mix of products here, some pricey and some high-street but I guess it will depend on what works for you.

Have you tried any of these brands before…let me know how you got on? What’s on your skin care wishlist?

Mermaid Makeup Brushes (Unicorn Brushes) ONLY £7

Hey guys! Welcome back to Afro Mermaid. My little space on the net. I’m going to be talking about some fabulous new £7 Mermaid Makeup Brushes that I got recently – or Unicorn Makeup Brushes, whichever mythical creature you prefer (and yes I said £7). I do a lot of makeup and so of course I go through a lot of makeup brushes. I’m not the best at washing my brushes so I just buy new ones. I’m not rich I just buy them cheaply! So when I came across these gorgeous brushes, I HAD to have them and I vowed to actually look after them because they are actually works of art. At ONLY £7 how could I not.

The brushes have lovely pearlescent, twisted handles in a pastel lavender colour, with white bristles. You get about 9 different brushes for different parts of your face. In a Kabuki style they are perfect for all your buffing needs and applying product to your face.

The Lovely Mermaid Makeup Brushes Include;

  • A flat-topped foundation brush – powder and liquid foundations
  • A narrow, flat bristled brush for sculpting
  • A fluffy head blush brush – for blending powders
  • A couple of short, flat bristled brush – for brows, details, eyes, concealer
  • A fan brush –  so you can have the BEST highlight
  • A plush, super-soft powder brush – for setting your base
  • A soft, fluffy eyeshadow brush – blend away harsh lines after shadow application
  • A short and stubby  brush – for packing shadow onto the lid

Look at the sea shells and look at the brush handles. TOTALLY MERMAID VIBES

I never actually use makeup brushes for what they’re supposed to be used for but I guess that’s the beauty of makeup – do what you want! I get the vibe of Mermaid Makeup Brushes rather than Unicorn Makeup Brushes because they remind me of sea shells. The brushes are so lovely to look out and they definitely do not look £7. I love shopping the internet for cheaper alternative because most times, you get good quality for a fraction of the price – as you can see here.

I think they are dupes for some other brushes selling at Beauty Bay – if you’d rather pay £45 feel free haha. The head of the brushes are a pretty rose gold colour and they have been sturdy and strong since I’ve been using them. I like the fact that the brush handles are tapered because it means they are much lighter and fit in a lot of makeup bags – perfect for travelling in style.

My favourite brush would have to be the fan highlighter brush. I look fabulous adding the finishing touches at the end of my makeup with the beautiful brush handles. The brushes work well I will most likely be purchasing them again when the time comes. If you want some of these brushes, check out the LightInTheBox website, eBay, Amazon or pay £45 at Beauty Bay.
