Antidote Essentials.

I being a guy who has been obsessed with beauty for as long as I can remember can definitely attest to having the right skincare products for my skin, I have an oily combination skin type and I like products that help to keep my skin balanced but still hydrated, I also like to look for products that absorb really well into the skin without leaving any sort of residue.

I have recently discovered Antidote Essentials and have really been enjoying the products I have been trialing, the products work really well for my skin and my skin type. They absorb really well and keep my skin nourished, they also help keep my skin calm when I shave which is always something I look out for in my grooming products.

I have been so lucky to be able to have a chat with the founders of the brand and below they have answered some questions for me, continue reading to read all about our interview.

Ella Bache #IWillBeMe Campaign.

If there is one thing that I have learnt from working in the beauty industry for ten plus years now is to  always trust the professionals, especially when it comes to your skin. The #IWillBeMe Campaign by Ella Bache wants to empower women by making them feel confident in their own skin, they are encouraging people to go into one of their clinics and book in for a complimentary Skin Diagnosis followed by a 45 Minute SkinFit facial treatment.

Alongside the diagnosis and treatment you will also receive a Skin Fit Pack which contains two travel sized products that have been tailored to your skin type.

I am a big fan of getting my skin properly diagnosed as I have learnt a lot about my skin from having it done, I would highly recommend having a skin diagnosis to anyone especially those who are just starting out in their skincare routines as it is crucial to know what kind of skin you have and what it needs. 

I have learnt a lot about skincare and my own skin over the years and believe I have finally found what works for me, I being the beauty junkie that I am like to use various products on a daily basis but am also a believer in keeping it simple and sticking to a solid routine.

My Experience: Venus Viva Treatment at Claire Francoise.

Being the beauty obsessive that I am, I am always on the lookout for skin treatments to try for myself and to also share the experience on my site. Claire Francoise is someone who I really trust with my skin and I have been visiting the clinic for over the past year or more now for treatments. When she told me about the Venus Viva Treatment I knew it would be a good one to try.

Claire so kindly answered some questions on the mentioned treatment, continue reading to hear what she had to say about it.

On Rotation.

Everyone has their thing when it comes to what relaxes them, for me it's organising my beauty cupboard. Being the beauty junkie that I am I really enjoy organising all my products and as it is a big part of my job and I like having everything organised and ready to go when I need it.

Whilst recently sitting on my bedroom floor organising my beauty products by their categories it got me thinking about the products I am currently using in my routine, I have recently changed up my skincare routine and am trialing some products for the site.

How To Add Boosters Into Your Skincare Routine.

Anyone who has been following me on on Instagram knows that I have been traveling quite a bit over the past months, I really enjoyed traveling but it definitely took a toll on my skin. I have the kind of skin where it instantly acts up when I have been traveling, stressed and haven't gotten enough sleep.

Another thing my skin reacts to is weather changes, this time around I came from Summer in Europe to Winter in Melbourne and my skin definitely noticed the change. I have an oily combination skin type with a bit of dehydration added into the mix so I am currently looking for my skincare products that will help to soothe my jetlagged and weather shocked skin.

A brand that has been on my radar since I first started out in beauty is Clarins, the thing I love most about their products is whenever I use them they just work and are always good to fall back on whenever my skin is playing up.

The latest addition to my routine has been the Boosters from Clarins which come in three variations Repair, Detox and Energy. One of the great things about the boosters is that they can be easily incorporated into your current skincare routine, you simply add 3-5 drops into your moisturiser, mask or foundation.

I personally like to mix mine into my moisturiser which is currently the Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Cooling Gel, I scoop out a fifty cent size piece or so amount of moisturiser into the palm of my hands and add three to five drops of whichever booster I need at the time. The booster bottles have a button at the bottom of the bottle, one click equals one drop which means you have complete control over how many drops you mix into your preferred product.

The Repair booster helps with skin recovery and works to reduce any redness and discomfort, The Detox booster helps to detoxify, add radiance and plump the skin and the Energy booster works to tone, re-energize and erase signs of fatigue.

Like I said earlier I am someone who travels a lot and I honestly think these boosters are genius, they are super easy to travel with and easily fit into your current skincare routine, I like having all three with me when I travel so no matter how my skin is feeling I know I have the right products to help with my concerns.
