Skincare of the Week – 13 December 2015
Not a hugely exciting week skincare-wise, admittedly – I’m still ill and still look like death warmed up (if death was into the fourth week of a cough that makes them puke at regular intervals, that is) – but I did get my Caroline Hirons Skincare box this week, so from Tuesday onwards you can see the Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum, and the Dr Dennis Gross Retinol Eye Cream have been added to my regular rotation. I can’t judge their results yet – indeed, it would be unfair to do so, seeing how grotty I look generally at the moment, to be honest – but they’re a nice addition to my routine and I’m looking forward to seeing how they work generally once I recover. The box was a good one though, especially as I got back ups of some longtime faves, the May Lindstrom Blue Cocoon Balm, alongside the Zelens PHA+ Bio Peel Resurfacing Pads, in the box too. But more about those products in particular later this week.
I also added some Hydraluron back into my routine, both in the serum and the moisturising jelly formulation. I do like a bit of hyaluronic acid in my routine, and I like Hydraluron very much – I especially like the moisturising jelly as a great hydrating moisturiser for oily/combination skin that doesn’t need an oily cream over the top as well. They were on offer at Boots recently, £30 for the serum, the jelly and a box of sheet masks for £30, which is a humongous bargain! I may have bought a couple of them!
I think my dreadful cough is on the wane now, hopefully I’ll be back to looking like a human by Christmas …
