Yeah, it’s been a while … Turns out I like not blogging almost as much as I do actual blogging, who knew?! Anyway, for today at least, I’m back slaving away at a keyboard. I would have been back last week, but stuff happened, and I’m still wearing the bandage on the middle finger of my left hand, let’s put it that way.
Anyhoo, skincare. This week was mainly about trialling the new Burts Bees Cleansing Oil (literally just released in the UK, and costs £16.99 a bottle from their website). I like it a lot, but I’m a bit upset it’s a fragranced oil, I can’t see any reason why it needs to be. It’s a light, smooth oil that spreads over the skin nicely, and removes makeup thoroughly but gently. The label indicates its for dryer skins than mine, but my sensitive combination-oily skin tolerates it nicely. It doesn’t quite emulsify when you come to rinse, just becomes a bit looser, and it easily wipes off with a warm flannel. I like it.
Everything else I’ve been using this week is an old (or an almost-old) favourite, I’m still mostly in love with Tata Harper skincare, and I’m nearing the end of this bottle of the Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum, and I totally intend to finish it off. I recently finished my much-beloved bottle of Zelens Intense Defence Serum, which has left a gaping hole in my routine, to be honest, I’m still casting about to find the perfect replacement, the Tata is good, and does what it is supposed to, but I just don’t love it as much as the Zelens for some reason. It does work really well with the Rebuilding moisturiser though.
How has your week in skincare been?
