I have recently overhauled my skincare regime; I decided that I need to start taking care of my skin properly again, spend some quality time each morning and evening cleansing and hydrating my face. I have even started using a toner! I have added Yes to Blueberries Smoothing Daily Cleanser (£9.99), Natio Gentle Skin Toner (£6.80) and Bluemandarines Aquaporin Plus 24 Hour Facial Cream (£19.00) to my daily routine. I use the cleanser as part of my evening routine whilst the toner and facial cream are used both morning and evening, with the addition of a serum or oil in the evening.
I treated myself to some new make-up. I needed a concealer, I used to swear by YSL Touche Eclat for under my eyes but since giving up work I’ve tried to find a high street alternative and have discovered that Collection concealers are pretty damn good! I had been using their Illuminating Touch concealer but Superdrug were sold out so I picked up Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19) instead. Superdrug had their 3 for 2 offer running so I also picked up GOSH Velvet Touch Eye Liner in Fashionista (£4.99), which is a gorgeous deep dark blue shade, and Maybelline Brow Drama (£4.99). Back in August I received a LAQA & Co Lip Pencil from Birchbox and absolutely loved it, so ordered the LAQA & Co Lil Lip Duo containing two travel-sized lip pencils in Wolfman and Fairyblood.
