Without a doubt, Mad Beauty has the best range of fun, innocent beauty products. This is the link to their Disney range, but it would be worth checking out some of their others as well www.madbeauty.com/gifts-c1/disney-c109
Once I noticed my Dior foundations starting to run out and my benefit mascara was suspiciously messy , I knew that was time for them to have their own things . I don't want them obsessing over mac etc so I've tried to gently steer them into other feel good beauty brands- namely the body shop and lush and I also buy them those cheap face masks you can buy from a supermarket so they do pretend spa days in their room . They still like makeup though , so haven't seen any harm in letting them buy bits from maybelline and Rimmel etc . The rule is though they can mess about with it at home and stick to lip gloss when they go out if they feel like it .For special occasions like parties , a bit of blush and a tad of lipstick but I don't worr about it too much as it seems to fade within an hour because it's cheap.
Absolutely second Superdrug and primark Superdrug usually have a 3 for 2 and the Mua range is great for trying stuff . I let them do a little Superdrug shop at the start of half term as a treat and it came in handy because they've been in their room messing with it over the week. I get cheap micellar wipes as well so they can clean their faces otherwise they use my cleansers too
Great thread! Have lost count of my products that suspiciously end up in DD’s (10) room
She’s all about the makeup, not so much skin care so, Am trying to encourage her to start with cleansing her face properly and maybe a spot of mosuturiser. However she is a lazy tike and doesn’t wash her face so is cleansing water (can’t remember official name) the most suitable product?
I only get mine to cleanse if they've been playing with makeup . I got them micellar wipes as they do a thorough job and they're not going to be very good at traditional cleansing - they'll probably do a rushed , half hearted job. I think daily cleansing will upset teenage skin and it's best to leave it alone ( if it's not broke , don't fix it ) for now.
