Spotlight on Flint+Flint: A new hero brand!

Flint+Flint is an exciting new beauty brand, home grown right here in the UK. Skincare experts, Adam and Maxine, developed the brand after finding that none of the skincare products available on the market really did what they promised. They set out to make their own brand that really works, and developed entirely in the UK.

These are some of my favourite of their products, all available on their website

The Everyday Wash £27

Sometimes washing your face can seem like a bit of a chore, but with the right cleanser it can be my favourite part of the day. I love that feeling of clean scrubbed skin. This cleanser contains glycolic acid which I swear by for healing and renewing the skin. And unlike other glycolic cleansers I’ve used, this one actually smells nice! One of the other active ingredients in this cleanser is something called Vital ET which a form of vitamin E that has anti-erythemal (anti-redness) and anti-inflammatory properties. After using this cleanser I did notice my skin redness seemed reduced.

The Lip Hero £12

I am so excited about this product. Not only does this balm plump and volumise, it also improves the shape of your lips, making the outline clearer and is supposed to even have an anti-ageing effect. I didn’t know a product could do this! I will monitor it’s effects over the next few weeks and keep you posted about my lip condition. It has a gloss like feel to it going on to the lips and a rose scent. At £12 it’s a no brainer.

For my american readers, they do ship internationally (yay!). I suspect big things for this brand, so snap these products up while you can!

How to make your own Lip Plumper

I came across this recipe for a lip plumper that you can make at home for free so thought I’d do that with my Sunday and see if it works so you guys don’t have to. 

What you will need: 

1 tsp of Vaseline

1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp of cinnamon

Mix these all together in a bowl and then apply to lips with a Q tip. Obviously there will be lots left over because it’s a teaspoon of Vaseline so I covered the rest over with cling film for keepsies.

Leave the mixture on for 5 minutes. It will tingle. And no matter how careful you are you will probably ingest some like I did. But cayenne pepper is super good for you so don’t worry about that. After 5 minutes is up wipe it off and just apply normal Vaseline and check the results.

It’s not a complete transformation but to be honest it’s better than some designer brand lip plumpers I’ve used in the past and its free so why not try it?
