Scrub away the dullness

Amazingly (well, to the PinkCrust posse at least) many women are easily cutting out regular exfoliation in their daily cleansing routine, tut tut tut.

The thing is, a simple 2 minute Use of a scrub, just a couple of times a week can combat several skin issues and improve the appearance of skin instantly.

What exactly can it do? Ok where to start…

unclog pores, reduce pore size, brighten skin and reduce skin flakiness to name but a few benefits. In the long term this results in smoother skin.

The absolute best and all time favourite exfoliating scrubs on the Market right now that we LOVE LOVE LOVE for too many reasons would be Laura Mercier face polish, and clarins One step one step gentle exfoliator. Neither are abrasive, yet very effective, they contain skin sooting ingredients and smell divne!

But if you want to tighten your belt a little, you can always make your own!

Two heaped teaspoons of sugar, one teaspoons of almond oil, enough fresh tomato juice to turn the mixture into a paste and there you have it, a delicious tasting face scrub!

beyond belief

This skin care line is amazingly effective and affordable. If your familiar with dermalogica, then our verdict is that these products offer a similar result. At pinkcrust we’ve been using and loving Beyond Belief ABH Pore Refining Exfoliating Scrub andΒ Beyond Belief ABH Pore Refining Clay Mask. Used together, they leave the skin soft, glowing and clean, without drying or stripping. The clinical menthol smell is also a plus point for both products. We love the use of alpha beta and hydroxy acids too.

We are soooo behind these to particular products that we now stock them in store

(please note pore refining scrub has sold out, the pore refining masque is only available until stocks last πŸ™‚ )

Must have! Should have! Always have! Pros have! Product of the week.

Benefits legendary moon beam and high beam are fantastic quick fixes that give you an amazing glow. Use alone, underneath or on top of make up in the right areas and you’llΒ  have light bouncing of your facial contours giving you brilliant definition!

Where to use it? brow bone, cheek bone, bridge of nose…

How to use? Mix with foundations, moisturisers or place alone in specific areas.

Can be used on all?Β  The general rule of thumb with the benefit can is that moon beam is preferabe on dark skin tones whist high beam is great on light skin tones, however, we believe that this product can be used according to the ook that is desired!

matters of the skin!

Mild Acne, pigmentation, stretch marks, rosacea, malasma and so many more skin problems can often be aided to repair with the help of the right product and this brand is one of them!

The Pinkcrust team are all fixated on the Mario Badescu range. here are a list of reasons why(you ready?)
*the range has a variety of products targeted at common skin problems for all over the body

*the range is actually effective!

one of the favourites amongst the pinkcrust girlies is the glycollic foaming wash, which is an exfoliation treatment for mild pigmentation with the effect of brightening the skin (after using this for 2 months, it was is amazingly effective because it cleaned ,brightened and evened out skin tone without drying stripping or irritation.)

Oscar nails

Having studied the red carpet celebrity nails, we have concluded that nude nails was the trend of the day (and most likely the next coming months)….

Which promptly reminded us of our ‘ no fail’ french mani favourite Orly’s Angel face. Why? consistency isΒ  “creamy” giving good coverage and the colour absolutely results in perfect looking clean and tidy nails. Excellent worn alone or with a white tip! however it was duely noted that Anne Hathaway’s natural nails were down to high-end brand Deborah Lippmann polish in ‘I dreamed you’. However if you need to get your hands on a cheaper high street alternative, we highly recommend Bourjois ‘so laque’ in ‘rose Lounge’-it offers excellent shine, longevity, superb consistency, wide brush for easier coverage…guess you catch our drift, get this!!
