Roasted Sesame Sauce

This roasted sesame sauce has the most amazing flavour and can be used as a dipping sauce for meatballs. Or use it to coat some Asian noodles, or dress a salad. The uses are endless in my opinion.

I had thought that my foundation was too dark on my skin due to it being winter. Toning the colour down with moisturiser worked to make it lighter. But it turned out that the colour given to me by the consultant was not correct. This particular foundation included a serum, and I was curious to know what my beautician would say at my next facial. She told me that my skin was at the best hydration levels she had seen for a long time. So, I decided I would get more of the foundation, but in the lighter colour. However, Sorbet have decided to discontinue this range! And the colour I need is no longer available. It has not yet been replaced so I decided on a work around for the two tubes of the non serum one I still have. I went out and bought serum.

I have decanted the foundation and added a generous amount of serum to the container. And I took that overseas for me to use. The skin feel is great, and I am hoping it is doing wonders for my hydration levels. The only problem I had was that my foundation brush felt like it was clogged up. I had decided against travelling with sponges, and gave the ones I had away. And then I bought myself a brush to use for our travels. I ended up washing the brush several times which was not a hassle. In the long term I am hoping the replacement foundation is as good as the serum one. But in the meantime I have a lot of the other one to use before I need to buy again. Do you use foundation? And if so, does it have added serum?

  1. Love the sound of this! Have nought like it in my files! Don’t normally use any mayo whatsoever, not even the beloved kew[ie but occasional exceptions surely can be made !!! Black garlic paste also is missing . . . but I’ll have it in the jar siinest . . .

  2. Hi Tandy, I haven’t worn foundation for years. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become more and more allergic. I have to put cortisone cream under and foundation I attempt to use, even the super anti allergenic ones. I only use Epizone E cream to which I add the water.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
