Bubu Face Mask

[Ad – Gifted & Affiliate Links] Empties April 2020

It’s been a while since I posted. I keep thinking that I should write something meaningful. Or something to help people. Or to share how things are with me. And then I realise that I can’t think of anything that would be right. I mean, I find myself just wanting to be in denial and pretend like everything is like it’s always been. I don’t want my bubble burst every two minutes with messages from the government, or ways that I should be developing or coping. So I figured that just maybe there might be some of you that would like to read the same kind of thing I normally write. So here’s an empties post. Of course, I wish you all health and happiness – and I’m here to chat when you need me too. Just shout!

Body Care

Bilou Creamy Shower Foam in Pink Melon

Pink Melon from Bilou

Creamy and moisturising and only costing a few pounds. This Bilou Creamy Shower Foam in Pink Melon was originally available in Superdrug but I can’t find them available in the UK right now. 100% Vegan.

L’Erbolario Lemon Hand Cream

L'erbolario Lemon Handcream

Love this brand so much. They have one UK branch in London’s Islington. I hear that branches are on most high streets in Italy – if that were the same in the UK I’d be in there all the time. (Lockdown excepted of course!)

This L’Erbolario Lemon Hand Cream is fresh and uplifting. It’s really hardworking too and sinks in fast leaving a barrier that protects against cold, wind water, and detergents. Ingredients include plant-based glycerine to soften and moisturise. The lemon works to lighten and reduce dark spots. I tried the 30ml travel size. but it comes in a full 75ml size too.

O’Keefe’s for Healthy Feet Foot Cream 85g

O'Keeffe's Healthy Feet

I’ve previously featured products from this hard-working down to earth brand here. All of them are effective and affordable. The O’Keefe’s for Healthy Feet Foot Cream is £8.49 for 85g.

Pure Anada Shower Gel Tahitian Gardenia

Pure Anada Tahitian Garden Shower Gel & Garden Facial Mist

The rich lather that you get from this Pure Anada Shower Gel Tahitian Gardenia softens and moisturises as it cleanses.  As well as being gentle it has biodegradable surfactants that are derived from sugar and coconut oil. It also includes sunflower oil to seal in moisture.  There are 7 fragrances including unscented. You can find Pure Anada Shower Gels here for £9.50 for the 300ml size.

Make Up

La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur Fair/Light

La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur

Specifically formulated for oily, blemish-prone skin that needs coverage. The cream-mousse formula of La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur controls sebum production, excess shine, and sweat. Contains blur technology and shade-adapting BB pigment which adapts to the colour of the skin on application to visibly blur the appearance of pores, fine lines, and redness for a matte, unified finish that lasts all day. This is my most repurchased product – the light shade suits me perfectly. Normally £17 Boots have it on offer currently for £12.75.

Revolution Conceal and Hydrate Foundation in Shade F4 

Conceal & Hydrate Foundation

This Revolution Conceal & Hydrate Foundation has a 50-shade range that’s infused with hyaluronic acid to hydrate. plump and smooth as well as giving a gorgeous glowy finish to the skin. I found my perfect match at the darker end of the light shades above right. It’s so unusual for me to use a foundation right to the end that hasn’t been colour matched in store. The coverage, look and feel was everything I wanted from a foundation and I’ve not been able to replicate it with any other brand – and it’s only £9!


Alpha H Absolute Eye Complex

Absolute Eye complex

This is such a good all-rounder – it’s the Alpha H Absolute Eye Complex. It’s not heavy or greasy but manages to tighten, firm, and brighten all at the same time.

Ingredients include hibiscus flower extract, cucumber, olive leaf extract, niacinamide, matrixyl 6, sodium hyaluronate, bud of beech tree extract, and pomegranate. The hibiscus flower acids gently resurface the skin to minimise fine lines, cucumber extracts refresh and tighten and there are peptides in there to reduce sagging and puffiness.

Use morning and or night and you can always apply for a refresh during the day over makeup! £36.50 for 15ml

Bubu Skincare #feelingdirty Pollution Busting Sheet Mask

Bubu Face Mask

This Bubu Skincare sheet mask is part of a cheeky collection that I’ve been trying out. The #feelingdirty face mask is a great way to protect your skin and shield it from pollution. It’s a sparkling mask that’s best applied just before your makeup, as it also doubles as a makeup primer. 
Ingredients include Advanced Biotech Complex which helps protect against environmental toxins and sage leaf extract that contains high levels of antioxidants which help combat free radicals.
As a primer natural actives together with the key ingredients create a unique finish that helps makeup to last longer.

The unique hydrogel base is a thermo-sensitive water-soluble hydrogel that reacts to skin temperature to release key actives and maximises results.

You can find it alongside other masks from the range with similarly naughty names priced at £7 here.

Omorovicza Cleansing Foam 30ml

Omorovicza Cleansing Foam

I’ve loved Omorovicza as a brand since the very first time I tried one of their products but have always treated them as a luxury purchase. That’s why I added it to my Christmas Wish List and was fortunate enough to be given a whole bundle of their products as a gift this year.
You’ll know by now if you’ve been reading my posts for a while that I like to use a balm cleanser to remove make-up and the dirt of the day and then follow it up with a second cleanse with some kind of wash-off cleanser. That’s why this Omorovicza Cleansing Foam fit into my routine so well. My gift included a 30ml size but it comes in a 150ml size that will last a while. It’s £52 but there’s a 10% off offer on right now here.
Even if you don’t follow the double cleanse routine as I do you can use it alone to remove make-up and impurities without stripping the skin of moisture.  It’s sulfate free and suits most skin types. Ingredients include white lupin to energise and revitalise and copper gluconate to detoxify. Use over time promises to firm skin for a fresher, hydrated look that’s radiant.

Omorovicza Omoressence 100ml


Straight after my second cleanse I like to use this Omorovicza Omoressence at what I’d call the toner stage. That is ahead of serum and moisturiser. It’s hydrating and balancing and prepares your skin for the next steps.

Ingredients include complex amino acids to retain moisture as well as healing minerals, natural moisturising actives, and polysaccharides to protect your skin from environmental stress and reduce inflammation and aid repair. Its patented Hydro Mineral Transference™ delivery system firms and re-densifies. It leaves the skin feeling calm and balanced.

A perfect partner for my other Omorovicza favourites it’s £65 100m l here. And there’s 10% off right now.

That’s it for today. Stay safe!
