Yes there is such a thing as lash shampoo. It's essential to the daily up-keep of your lashes. It should be added to your skin care routine to avoid common eyelid problems like Blepharitis which is becoming more and more common especially when clients aren't washing their eye area properly as they are afraid their lash extensions may weaken and fall out. Some clients have even told me that they have been told not to get the lashes wet!! Yes that may be true for the first 24 hours but after that you should let water run through them to clear away any dirt, make up and any build up in general. Not doing so may lead to problems with the eyes and infections and in some case, lash mites (aka Demodex) SCARY!! 

So please do take lash cleaning seriously!! 

Here's the perfect Lash Shampoo Recipe. Easy to make, and chemical free:

Get a foam pumper bottle, and add to it:

1 part Baby Shampoo (gently cleanses the eyes)
3 parts Bottled Water (never use tap water)
1 tsp Baking Soda (adjust the PH and boosts the gentle cleaning power)

Bottle it, shake well and use daily. So simple and easy to make.

I went to the London Olympia Beauty Exhibition last weekend and was there for hours browsing over 400 major beauty brands from all corners of the beauty industry.

Here are couple of things I picked up from the show that I'm absolutely loving at the moment:
Beautiful Brow Kits:
These brow palettes are ideal for blondes to darker brunettes. The palettes contain a dual brush, one side is an angled end and the other end is an eye shadow brush which creates a natural or smoky finish and powders can be blended to create a multi tone look. It comes with three different stencils. After selecting the stencil shape to best match you, hold it over your eyebrow and apply the eyebrow colour. The great thing is that it lasts for 24 hours!! You can create a warm natural day time look or a smoldering night time look. The nude shadow is the perfect finishing touch for highlighting underneath brows and for defining the brow bone.  (Beautiful Brows)

Dermafood's 02 Skin Correcting BB Cream:
I've been searching high and low for the perfect BB cream and I think I've found it in the form of Dermafood!! I've been through many Korean BB creams, tried the UK BB creams and none of them have impressed me, until I came across Dermafood's Skin Correcting BB cream.

The color that best matched my skin tone was TAN - yes tan? I'm not even that tanned but strangely enough it was the best match out of the shades that they had, and this shade seemed to blend seamlessly on! I can't tell you how impressed I am. All the other BB creams i've ever tried have never blended in so well. They're always either too light, giving me a chalky look, or too dark, and even orange with some of the UK BB creams!! I'm not saying Dermafood has a wide selection of BB creams in fact, it's pretty limited but they have more than just "light, medium and dark" shades.

Dermafood's skin correcting BB cream soothes and protects irritated and trouble skin. It provides full coverage, (better than most BB or CC creams out there which only give a subtle hint of colour) but all the while it protects, calms and alleviates irritated skin. Perfect for me as I suffer from mild rosacea and super sensitive skin. I have finally found a bb cream which covers flawlessly as well as heals without irritation. Whats there not to like, a BB cream thats natural, and beneficial for the skin rather than detrimental!!

-Perfect where can I purchase my Dermafood BB cream - I hear you all cry ... er...Unfortunately it's not available in the UK right now as there are no UK stockists for the BB cream but hopefully in the near future. (fingers crossed) You can however order from the U.S, for $48. Shipping is additional. I for now will be using the BB cream in very small doses to hopefully make it last til someone in the UK stocks it!! (Dermafood)
