FOY skincare review

 
 
I was kindly sent out some FOY skincare products to review and I couldn't wait for them to arrive. I never knew what products I would get sent but when I opened my parcel I couldn't have been happier to see what I got inside. I got sent FOY moisturising day cream, Rejuvenating night cream, Micellar cleansing water, Eye contour gel.
 
 
About the brand
FOY stands for foundation of youth.
The skincare was originally developed to provide post-operative treatment for patients undergoing surgery and non-invasive, aesthetic procedures. The formulations were developed to provide patients with products that would allow them to prolong the results of their treatment at home. Clients found their skin to be renewed, smooth, supple and radiant.
F.O.Y. has now advanced into a range of eight salon skincare products created in collaboration with professional aestheticians, perfected by scientists and tested by dermatologists.
Produced especially for the needs of mature skin, F.O.Y. is formulated with superior, advanced active ingredients that have been carefully selected to restore, repair and rejuvenate, while being gentle to the skin.

My opinion
This is a really nice day to day moisturiser. When I applied it onto my skin I felt like it was adding moisture. I use this product most days as it doesn't break me out and it hydrates my skin. I only use a light layer of this and the product absorbs well into the skin.
I have dry patches on my skin (around my nose) and when I apply makeup I have noticed that those areas aren't as obvious.

My overall opinion on FOY products
On the whole I am really happy with the products that I got sent as I genuinely like all of the products and I will continue to use them. My favourite product out of the four is the Micellar Cleansing water, as you can quickly remove your makeup with this product.

Graduation GRWM

On Monday, I graduated university with an English Studies BA (Hons) degree. My graduation took place 4pm, so I had the full morning to get ready and not rush. After the graduation ceremony took place I went out for drinks with family afterwards.  In this post, I will be talking about my makeup and outfit I wore on the day.  Makeup For my makeup I knew I wanted to keep it quite classic. As these are pictures you'll look back on years to come, so now wasn't the time for me to experiment with makeup.  I used products that I know are extremely long wearing and photograph nicely in photos.  This makeup look is very full coverage and I don't wear this amount of makeup all of the time. Only when I go 'out out' and for special occasions.  Brows ABH Dip Brow Pomade: Taupe ELF brow gel and mascara: Clear Eyes   Essence eyeshadow base: Ohai This is my favourite eyeshadow base as it makes your eyeshadow last all day and night.

Rainbow eyes and glitter lip makeup look

Makeup has always been a passion of mine. I love trying out new products and experimenting with different types of makeup looks. In the past year, I have gotten very boring with my makeup e.g wearing the exact same makeup look everyday unless I'm going 'out out'. Even though I am hetrosexual, I am a supporter of pride, as your sexuality etc shouldn't define you. Pride is all about bright, bold colours, so I decided to create a bold makeup look.  I am not a makeup artist at all! As you can probably tell! but I had fun creating this rainbow eye look with a glitter lip. I wanted my base to be full coverage, as I love full coverage makeup in general. If you don't like wearing a lot of makeup this look may not be for you. I don't wear this much makeup everyday, as it is a lot! Base Smashbox photo finish primer This is my all time favourite primer. It's silicone based, so it allows products to apply smoothly on top. MUA pro base prime & concea
