three little miracles

glamglow youthmud // £49.99
rosehip oil // £6.99
bepanthen // £5.49

you've probably heard of glamglow by now, yes? their products are a bank-breaking mix of stupidly expensive and stupidly good, and the youthmud is my favourite of the few i've tried. it's an exfoliating mask (you leave it on for ten minutes before scrubbing it off) and speaking as a gal with dry, flaky, disgusting skin, it does the job of making me feel less disgusting brilliantly. the results aren't long-term in any way, but i always reach for this for a quick fix.

as for rosehip oil, pleaaaaaaaase don't buy the overpriced branded bullshit, it's all the same one ingredient (i've been buying essential oils for years and i trust this seller on ebay). i've been using a few drops at night as a serum underneath moisturiser, and i've noticed similar results to what the likes of the estee lauder advanced night repair and other £60+ serums do - y'know the whole thing where you glance at the mirror in the morning and you're taken aback by how good your skin looks? less blemishes, less dry patches etc etc, just overall better. word on the street is that it also works well for ageing skin and minor burns, and ohmygod it's just so cheap.

the bepanthen probably looks a lil out of place but lemme explain: i've been using this stuff for years as a lip balm, and it only hit me last week how much i rely on it - some piece of shit stole my handbag at TITP with my phone, money, a rly rare film camera (gutteddd) and bepanthen in it and my lips were a fucking state for the next two days, no other lip balm could do the job. as one of our neighbours pitched near us at the campsite put it (he was known as wee dougie by his mates): this is pish, ah'm aff hame
(but seriously, it's a good lip balm)


  1. Bepanthen is THE stuff! It's so good for so many things, it is unreal. Ever tried using it on dark circles? It works wonders! And the liquid version is a very nourishing product for your hair :)

  2. Lovely reviews, I'll have to give this oil a try as I've heard nothing but positives about it!


  3. rosehip oil is my everything. it's seriously soo, soooooo good for your skin. I've never used Benpanthen ever, might need to get on that, stat. I think glamglow might actually bankrupt me, so I'll save that one for when I have a little more disposable income ^^

  6. The glam glow mask sounds amazing, trying to justify getting one but £50 for such a small tub!

  8. Fifty pounds for an exfoliating mask?! It better be worth it! But I would like something long-term if I would buy something that expensive. Ahhh well, I'll check out their Rosehip oil though! That sounds reasonable <3
