Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser Review

Hi lovelies,

I may not be amazing at putting on makeup or applying my creams, but I am VERY meticulous when it comes taking off makeup.

In my 42 years on da planet, I think I have never slept with makeup on.

I always take it off. My cleansing may not be very thorough when it is 4 a.m. after a night out, but it does exist and I think that is one of the reasons my skin is in such a good condition.

Today I will talk about one of my favourite cleansing products.

Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser

What it doesn’t do

It does not take off layers of heavy duty makeup.

What it does

It is great for a final cleanse. The cleanse that comes after all the other cleanses. The one you do when you have used your oils to get the annoying waterproof mascara off, the non budge eye shadow stick.

It is great for the first morning wash. The one you do in the morning when you wake up and want your skin to feel fresh and soft

Texture

It is a lightweight foam. It is not a thick foam. It is actually like putting a cloud on your face (not that I know what a cloud would feel like).

Scent

It smells like chamomile. It does not linger on your face though.

Packaging

It comes in a plastic pump bottle with a pump and a clear cap. It is 150 ml

According to the Sephora website,

This product is vegan, non-toxic, cruelty-free, dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, safe for sensitive skin, and free of all synthetic chemicals, gluten, GMOs, and fillers

Ingredients Guru

Some of the ingredients in it are:

Water, Glycerin, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside, Sodium Chloride, Citric Acid, Caprylyl Glycol,Fragrance, Coco-Betaine, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate,Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sodium Phytate, Matricaria Flower Extract, Sage Leaf Extract.

Me, me, me

My skin is dry and sensitive. It does not make my skin pull. It does not sting and it does not make my skin red. I have repurchased it many times. I str4ongly recommend you check it out.

Chatting about makeup and being colourblind

Yesterday was colour blind awaress day and I tried to do that. Raise awareness. The main focus was on students who are colour blind, but I did post a video about my whole makeup application process and what I, as an achromat, find difficult.

Struggling

Foundation/concealer

I cannot pick a shade for my skin. Whatever I use is based on what a makeup artist or sales assistant has chosen for me. I am OK with that. They are helpful. I can see if the foundation/ concealer is full or medium coverage, but I cannot see if it goes orange, if it is a cool or warm undertone.

Eye shadows

I cannot see the colours. I mean, I can see them, but not really “see” them the way you do. That is why I have ranted over and over about cosmetics companies and how they name their products. I need a clear colour name. Dark brown, light shimmery pink. What I do not need is a name like showery rainbow or unicorn breathe. That says nothing to me. It does not help me buy an eye shadow and in all fairness, it drives me away from purchasing a product with a random name. Now, as far as pigmentation is concerned, the lighter the shade, the harder it is for me to see it on my eyelid.

Lippies

Same as above. I have no idea what I am buying

But

I can see if it looks nice on me, or at least I think I can.

If you want to hear more about this, do watch my video, where I also talk about cb students and teachers.

Sweat proof makeup look

OK lovelies,

So it is hot

β˜€β˜€β˜€β˜€β˜€β˜€β˜€β˜€β˜€β˜€β˜€β˜€

and you want to go out, but you are dreading the whole makeup putting on procedure.

You just do not want your makeup to melt off coz of the humidity and the heat. That is what this blog post is here for. I will try to give you my suggestions/tips on how to achieve a sweatproof makeup look.

Top tips

Keep it simple.

Make sure you use a moisturiser first.

Do not stack loads of stuff on.

I use only concealer to hide spots. If you use a foundation, use something lightweight.

Top your concealer with a powder. That will clog up your pores and reduce the sweating.

Use a waterproof mascara and no budge eye stuff.

Now, because I am also making YouTube videos and trying to lure you into subscribing to my channel, here is my makeup tutorial or better say, get ready with me. Keep in mind I am partially sighted so any makeup look that does not make me look like a clown is a little feat!!

My video

Get ready with me:how to get a sweat proof looking using only concealer.

Products used in my makeup look

Estee Lauder doublewear concealer

Dior forever Control Powder

Stilla liquid Eyeshadow in Grace

Benefit Gold Rush Blusher

Laura Mercier Bronzer

Rimmel Stay matte liquid lipstick in Rose a shine

Mascara Extatic

I think that was about it. Don’t forget to connect with me. Subscribing to my channel would be great.

Have a lovely day/night.

GRWM using no foundation

Sometimes you just want a quick and easy makeup look. Something that you can apply and be ready in 5 mins. Other times it is just too hot or you are just too lazy and don’t feel like a full face of products. That is why I filmed this video and why I am sharing this post.

I am sharing with you a makeup look that requires no foundation.

🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼

Products used

(ummmm what I remember….)

Estee Lauder Doublewear concealer. I love this concealer. It is long lasting and easy to blend into your skin. I also used my SPF which is Clinique city block. I like this sunscreen because it is a little bit tinted, but not much!

I used a Laure Mercier bronzer in 02 and my Becca Opal highlighter. I used my Benefit gold rush blush and on my lips, the Rimmel Stay Matte liquid lippie in Rose Shine.

On the eyes an eyeshadow stick (my faves are the Clinique chubby sticks) and some mascara (currently using L’oreal Paradise).

C’mon makeup brands: you should be more inclusive

So I filmed a video. It explains my situation and my first world problem. Makeup. But imagine. Imagine if you could not see colours. Are you there? Is your vision black and white? Add some grey.

Now pick up the eye shadow. It is called sunset dream. Will you buy it?

That is my issue.

I shared this pic

My tweet said,

When you are colourblind, this is how you roll……

I tagged some makeup brands. Kiko Milano was the only brand that got back to me. At least they replied saying that they will take my feedback into consideration.

C’mon makeup brands. Be aware.

You are supposed to be inclusive.

I tried, but I am just one person and I need help.

You get me. You love makeup like me….

This is my story. This is my video.

Thanks for watching. I hope you can share the video. Maybe even tweet it. Tag a makeup brand.

Thanks for stopping by.

Five Friday Faves

Hi lovelies,

It is Friday (it was when I started writing this) and it is time for my 5 Friday Faves Youtube Video (and a promotional blog post which aims to get you to watch my video and maybe even subscribe to my channel coz I am trying to grow and no one really subs 😩😩). So, enough with the rambling. What are my faves?

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Body shop

My Moringa hand cream is so hydrating, lightweight and smells amazing. I 😍 it.

The card factory

I love polka dots. I love pink. I love organisation. I bought a box which is sterdy and very pretty.

Marks and Sparks

The scent of 🌹 🌹🌹 and it is my favourite. I bought the Rose 3 in 1 spray. You can use it on your body, for your room, and linen. I know that sound weird, but I like it and I πŸ’— the scent.

Primark

I bought a couple of fake flowers from Primark and my friend commented saying how nice they looked. I really like them. Great decor for shelves and stuff.

My Cane

This is a weird one, but I needed a warning cane. I now have one, and my life is much easier!Having a vision impairment is hard. Accepting that you need help is hard. Getting help is great though.

If you want to hear more about my faves, check out my channel. It would be great if you subscribed as well (#beggingforsubbies).

Anyhow, have a lovely weekend. See you in my next post and don’t forget to connect with me somehow, somewhere.
