B E A U T Y – Zombie to half human. The products I reach for

I’m NOT sleeping well. I’ll blame it on the menopause… well why not … everything else around here gets blamed on that ! – even the un-washed pots !

I swear I’ve had only 10 hours sleep the last few nights and to be honest I’m bloody knackered. I feel like an extra from the Zombie Eclipse !

I thought I’d share some products I’ve been reaching for in the morning ; ones that give me life and make me feel less deathly, even when that’s exactly how I feel.

Shuffle slowly this way … zombies can’t run !

M.A.C • STROBE CREAM – £26.00
Strobe cream is a brightening moisturiser/primer, which helps to illuminate the skin and banish any sign of dullness from lacklustre skin.


Strobe cream is packed with vitamins and green tea, the cream melts into the skin leaving a radiant glow that doesn’t feel heavy or cakey.

It comes in various shades –
Pinklite – Great for paler skin tones in need of a brightening boost.
Goldlite – Great for medium to darker skin tones.
Silverlite – Great for light to medium skin tones
Peachlite – Great for all skin tones.

I have Pinklite and Peachlite.

E-COOKING • WAKEUP CREAM – £32.00 for 50ml
Wake Up Cream is part of e-cookings 50+ series. It contains hyaluronic acid and niacinamide that increase the collagen production in the skin; and reduce pores, wrinkles, and fine lines.

Additionally, Wake Up Cream consists of CBD and stem cells which tighten loose skin and pamper the skin with a new energy.

Tighten always makes my ears prick up, that and lifting !

It is also contains SPF20 ensuring your skin is protected from the sun. The sun, along with no sleep, is your skin’s worst enemy.

Big plus points – it is allergy certified, vegan, dermatologically tested, and fragrance free.

ARTELAC • Eye Drops
I recently collaborated with and wrote a blog post on these eye drops. They are great to refresh tired eyes throughout the day … and have definitely been required the last few mornings.

They are very affordable and very soothing on tired peepers.

AYU • Instant Under Eye Concealer – 18€
Firstly it’s won awards. • applauds

It is a highly pigmented and extremely lightweight concealer. It comes in 4 shades – light through to tan. It brightens and evens out skin tone under the eyes, which leaves you looking instantly brighter and more alive. It’s my godsend at the moment. I love a good under eye concealer and this is a goodie. I have light / medium .

Plus points – Vegan Friendly

So there you have it.

Have you any fail safe products you reach for when you look and feel like a Zombie ?

I’d love to hear all about them. Tell me, tell me …
