#BEAUTY | Skincare tips for combination skin

Hello January/February! I want to say I cant believe how fast January has gone, but its only been the last week that it seemed to have whizzed by. The weather is once again getting involved in my skincare routine and I have to change what products I have been using. 


I have been drowning myself in Mac's strobe cream more than anything since the sun went into hiding. Im pretty certain MAC superfans will have this as their all time staple for the perfect glowy base. It is quite the little miracle and can add a woken up look to the dullest skin. I think its worth the little investment if you're into glowy skin.


La Roche-Posay is somewhat of a new brand for me. Having first tried it out as another blogger recommended it. I have got their makeup remover which I spoke about in my recent youtube vid. This anti pore matt moisturiser I have started using as I like the consistency of it, its more of a serum. It can be used as a base for the skin as it has a little tacky feel to it. I love it because it helps my skin to be less oily without it drying out my skin. So it brings me the right balance. This brand is fab if you have sensitive skin btw.


Just arrived the other day was this REN glow gel cream I ordered and I have used it a few times, I love the light consistency of it. I wanted the cream version as I do have the glow tonic, which I prefer to use in the summer. This is a bit better for the winter as it has more coverage and hydrates the skin. It says it also protects against pollution which is a bonus for us Londoners ha!

Let me know what your tips for combination skin are!
XOXO

#BEAUTY | SBC gels

One of my favourite ingredients for my skin, especially dry skin is manuka honey. So i tried out some of the honey products from the SBC Gels and havent stopped using them. They have replaced my usual products. So lets have a product break down! The manuka honey and orange blossom scrub has really fine bits in it which are very helpful for exfoliating, but as a they are super fine it is a lot more nicer to  use than some products that have the larger exfoliating bits in them!   Manuka honey & orange blossom body butter - as you have guessed by the name this is a body butter! They dont tend to be my go to product as i dont really like the consistancy. I love the smell of this, its so fragrent. After i have used the shower wash i either use this or the gel to get me some soft soft skin!
These two are my favourite from the honey selection. There is the bath and shower gel (on the left) and the skincare gel. The bath and shower gel smells so strongly of honey and lathers up in to a…

#BEAUTY | Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 eyeshadows + NEW concealer

In my bid to do a full face of affordable and decent makeup, I went on a shopping trip to gather my items....and of course to grab that concealer the whole beauty world is talking about (or so it seems) so my trip was a disappointing one as the store I went to was near enough empty of makeup revolution :( so I bought this flawless 4 eyeshadow kit and concealer and intend to buy other bits like foundation, brow and lip products etc somewhere else. For the time being though I wanted to share my thoughts on this palette.
The colours are stunning, I'm actually so happy at how high street brands are really good quality for the money, I believe this palette was £6. I was drawn to the pinks and reds and of course the shimmer shades, both being really pigmented. There is a bit of fallout but mostly in the darker colours. There is a good range of mattes and shimmers and saying that also a good range of crease colours and lid colours.



The concealer which is being compared to tartes shape t…

Vape Shoreditch x discount code!

A little something new on Just Sarah XOXO! Usually you see makeup, fashion and all things "girly" but i like to keep you on your toes and mix it up a bit.  Me personally, i am not a smoker but  i can be partial to a bit of flavoured smoke  Just as a side note, these ones do contain nicotine. I think the popularisation of these kind of e-cigerattes came about when smoking was banned in public places like pubs, cafes etc and also can be a big help in quitting the smoking habit if thats what you want.
When it concerns flavoured e-liquid i think some people just like them for a different taste, just as a lot of people enjoy shisha (basically the same thing but without the big ol' pipe) so when i stumbled upon Vape Shoreditch i was  just super excited when i saw their flavour range!! Take a look for yourself here.
Flavours include - Apple pie Bubblegum Parma violet Gummy bear! Lime sorbet Peach
 & many more!
if those flavours dont get your tastebuds a tingling then i don…
