New vegan, cruelty free brand worth checking out: Ecooking

I've said it many times and I will say it again, blogging has given me the opportunity to discover and try products and brands I wouldn't have probably otherwise so every time I am contacted to try out something new I'm very excited and grateful.
Ecooking is a new to the UK market Danish skincare brand founded by Tina S√łgaard who started out by hand-mixing raw ingredients at her kitchen table to create skincare for herself. Soon enough the results were so noticeable that all of her family and friends were desperate to get their hands on her homemade concoctions. As Tina perfected her formulas, Ecooking was born, combining ‘eco’ ideals (with its natural, environmentally friendly outlook) with ingredients so pure that some can even be used in ‘cooking’.
With simple, apothecary style packaging, labels which show exactly what product it is and what ingredients in it, without any gimmicks, the brand is definitely intriguing.
I've had the chance to try out some products from the range and I want to share with you my thoughts on them.

A few products I've been loving lately

I've not done beauty favourites post in the longest time, mostly because of me blogging much less these days so I try to pick carefully which products I want to review in depth on my blog and, unfortunately, many don't get to be featured. So I thought I will share with you a few products that I've been truly loving lately and they deserve the mention on my blog.

My 'secrets' to looking like I've had a good night sleep even if I didn't

Ideally most us would have 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep every night and feel and look rested during the day. Unfortunately that's not the case for many of us, for whatever reason we don't have good night sleep it reflects in the way we look, especially our eye area, which is a quick giveaway with dark circles, dehydration lines, redness. So today I want to share with you my secrets (which aren't secrets really but that sound a bit better in the title, LOL!) on how to look rested with the help of some skincare and makeup products.

Skincare range you should check out: M&S Formula Absolute

Marks & Spencer isn't probably your first thought when you're in need for some new beauty products or just want to browse through beauty shelves. I know it wasn't mine until I started working with their beauty team earlier this year and I realised that M&S Beauty Hall has so much to offer you'll be able to shop for all your beauty essentials (or not so much) right after you've done your grocery shopping.
They stock a variety of brands, from their own ranges like Autograph, Rosie for Autograph (check out my review) to well known brands and some of my favourites like Pixi, Origins, Nuxe, Ren, Emma Hardie and many more!
Today I want to share with you my thoughts on two products from the M&S's own range, Formula Absolute, which have been in my routine for a while and I think they're worth checking out, especially for those of you who are in their 30s and over.

Hydrated, glowing complexion with Erborian products

Erborian is a Korean skincare/makeup brand that has been known to me mostly thanks to their very popular CC cream yet I had not tried their products until these ones landed on my doorstep a few months ago. It was just beginning of Summer and the moisturisers sounded absolutely perfect for hot weather and they did delivered! In fact I have completely used up one of them and wouldn't hesitate repurchasing it if my skincare drawer wasn't full of products waiting their turn (beauty blogger problems, LOL!)
So if you're looking for a new moisturiser keep on reading to find out more about these Erborian offerings.

REN Perfect Canvas Skin Finishing Serum - the perfect makeup primer?

Makeup primer is a product that some people swear by it and some can't be bothered with it. I'm standing somewhere in the middle as I reach for it when I want my makeup to look more flawless and last longer like for long shifts at work, going out etc. but most days I don't use it. There are lots of primers on the market which claim to do different things like hydrate, blur the appearance of large pores and wrinkles, mattify, add glow to the skin, and add longevity to your foundation, so depending on your skin type and concerns you can pick your perfect product. I have tried lots of primers in order to find the one that would help my skin appear smoother, pores less visible, control the shine in my T-zone but hydrate my drier areas and make my makeup to last longer throughout the day. It's fair to say that I'm yet to find one that would do all these things because if something is great at correcting one 'issue' it's not that great at others. But there are some primers that are very close to perfection and I am excited to share with you today one of those gems.

Pixi Glow - review and makeup look

PIXI is one of my favourite brands to work with and I am very lucky to be on their PR list as not only they have fantastic products but also always produce amazing packages for their bloggers. One of the latest one was called Glow in a  Box and focused on all the glow and sparkle which is just perfect for Summer holidays, festivals, parties or simply beautiful, warm evenings when we want to feel and look a bit more glamorous :)
With the current heatwave in UK I've not been wearing full face of makeup every day but I have managed to try these beautiful highlighters and liquid eyeshadows a few times so I can share my thoughts on them with you and makeup look I created with some Pixi products.

For every budget: melting cleansing balm/gel

Cleansing properly your skin every day is probably one of the most important steps in your skincare routine as no expensive treatment will get you full benefits of its ingredients if your skin is dirty and pores blocked. So I make sure I always double cleanse my face in the evening and then use a gentle cleanser in the morning as well to remove all grease, sweat and remnants of products from the evening before.
You don't need to spend lots of money on cleansers but just be sure they're gentle on the skin because we don't want anything too harsh to strip our skin from the moisture and disrupt its protective layer.
Today I want to share with you three great cleansing balms/gels which emulsify when in contact with water and are perfect as a second cleanse in the evening and/or part of your morning skincare routine.
All three of them can be used to remove your makeup but I, personally, prefer an oil or oily balm to break down all my makeup and SPF and then I like to use something lighter that can be rinsed with water for tat fresh skin feeling but without the dryness.
