Mixa Cica Repair Balm

I recently had a horrible reaction to a Fake Bake false tan which left my arms, neck and legs covered in scaly, dry skin. I had just about tried everything from exfoliating to sudocrem in an attempt to get rid of it but nothing seemed to make a difference, until a friend recommended the cica repair balm from French pharmacy brand Mixa.

I applied it twice a day for a week, by the second day all of the redness was gone from the rash and by the seventh my skin was completely back to normal. I have been using it regularly since on any dry areas such as my hands, elbows and knees and am so impressed with the difference it makes.

The balm is definitely a holy grail for people sensitive skin and is an absolute bargain too at £5.99 from Superdrug.

Have any of you tried it?

Favourite brand: Kiko

I had never even heard of Kiko until about a month ago and it’s quickly becoming my favourite brand ever! I’ve tried quite a few different products over the past few weeks so I decided to share some of them with you.

Ultra Tech Curve Mascara

This is honestly the best mascara that i’ve ever used, it is also one of Kiko’s best selling and I can definitely see why! It leaves my lashes looking thick and volumised without being clumpy and can be built up for an amazing dramatic look or you can apply less for every day wear.

Ultra Tech Curve Mascara

It’s also extremely well priced at £7.20 and seems to be on offer for around £3.50 too.

Velvet Satin Nail Lacquer

These nail varnishes dry within seconds and leave a gorgeous matte finish. They also last for around a week without chipping and come in a wide variety of colours. I have 696 titanium lilac, 695 ivory taupe and 697 midnight blue.

Velvet Satin Nail Lacquer

They cost around £4.90 and are limited edition so make sure you give them a try before they go!

Bronzer Powder

This leaves my pale skin looking naturally bronzed and lasts all day long. It comes in six different colours so there’s guaranteed to be one to suit you!

It costs around £9.90 and I use shade 100 honey beige.

These are the Kiko products i’ve tried so far but I have my eye on a few more to try out in the future!

Have any of you tried any Kiko products?
