Nanshy Professional Makeup Brush Set

Nanshy Makeup Brushes

Makeup Brushes

These Nanshy Brushes* are amazing quality, they feel substantial and very well made. I was so excited to start using them. These brushes are very dense and they do not shed their bristles. The handles are wooden but lightweight and are painted a very pretty pearl colour. I like that they’re quite short but chunky, this makes them easy to hold and they look really luxurious.

I used the Flat Top Buffer Brush to apply my foundation, it picked up quite alot of product but I found it easy to blend and it buffed it really well into my skin and gave me a flawless finish. Be careful not to apply too much product to your brush as you can get away with using a small amount and really buffing it in.

The Round Buffing Brush I used to apply my setting powder over the centre of my face, this is where I tend to get oily. This brush was a good size for applying the powder to specific areas as it is quite small but the bristles are dense and so soft.

The Pointed Brush I used this for my bronzer, because it had a point this was great for being precise and applying my bronzer under my cheek bones and around my temples. I don’t own a brush like this and wonder how I have survived without it. It makes applying my bronzer so much easier. I have also used this to blend my concealer around my nose and under my eye and think it works really well for either function. This may be my stand out brush from the set, I just love it.

Flat Angled Buffing Brush, I found this worked really well for cream blushes, I used it to stipple the cream blush on to my cheeks and the angled effect made it easy to apply and to follow my cheek bones. This brush is a little more stiff than the Angled Buffing Brush. I used the softer Angled Buffing Brush to apply blush and my highlighters. What I like about this brush set is that you can figure out how these brushes work best for you and they have no set use. They are very versatile and amazing quality. I can’t explain to you how soft they are. I am so very impressed with these and think they would highly recommend them.

A Moisturiser For The Winter

Organic Surge daily moisturiser

I’m new to the world of Organic Surge* although I have read some really good reviews of their products and so was very excited to try out their Super – Intensive Daily Moisturiser. I was a worried that this moisturiser might be a little heavy for me as I often have quite oily skin in places. I was surprised that although this is quite a rich cream it wasn’t greasy or heavy on my skin, it actually absorbed quickly.

This moisturiser is formulated for dry / mature skin and I think it is perfect as a winter hydrating moisturiser. I’m 35 so would say I have quite mature skin and I liked how this gave my skin hydration and was quite soothing. My skin can get quite red and dry over my cheeks and whilst using this cream found it calmed my skin and it felt very soft and smooth. It has quite a strong floral scent, but that doesn’t linger on the skin. The only downside of this cream for me is it doesn’t contain SPF so I have to apply that separately, thats my only negative point.

It is packed full of goodness

Shea Butter – great for promoting cell renewal

Cocoa Butter – good for skin tone

Glycerine – locks in moisture

Green Tea – reduces inflammation

Chamomile – very soothing

Aloe Vera – repairs, calms and moisturises

Organic Rose Geranium – helps revive a dull complexion

Organic Surge

With its hydrating, soothing and calming properties this is a perfect winter daily moisturiser. It will keep your skin hydrated and give it radiance. I’ve been teaming this up with my Hydraluron for a double moisture boost and it is working a treat. So if you’re looking for a great value, hydrating moisturiser I would highly recommend you give this a go.
