Skincare of the Week 11.10.15

No blog posts last week because I was unwell last Sunday and I simply couldn’t face writing in the slightest.  I still kept up with my skincare routines though, because I do (occasionally) have standards …  The routine above was a night-time one mid-week, from when I had a congested chin – complete with zit!  I haven’t had a zit in a couple of years […]

What’s on my face this week? 27.09.15

I’m coming to the end of my “testing phase” with a few products right now, and to celebrate I’m going to be having a bit of a skincare week on the blog from tomorrow, so look out for some in-depth reviews from then.  In the meantime, here’s some pictures of the routines I’ve been using.  Above is Monday’s faceful, I’d dug out some old Aesop […]

Skincare of the Week 20.09.15

Or, welcome to another week of what I plaster onto my ugly mug 😉  I’m still trialling Omorovicza Blue Diamond Eye Cream, and Zelens Intense Defence Antioxidant Serum, though I was thwarted a bit in testing this week through circumstances, as we’ll see.  This was Monday’s face, and I forgot to photograph the moisturiser … :sigh: I wasn’t made for Mondays. Tuesday arrived, and I […]

Skincare of the Week 13.09.15

Last Sunday was a very stressful day, so I ended up giving myself a mini-facial in the middle of the day.  Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel was soothing with its rosy softness, then I slathered myself in Aveda Intensive Hydrating Mask for the rest of the day.  I love this stuff, oil-free, it is instantly cooling and soothing (I keep mine in the fridge.  That reminds […]

Wedding Preparation – My Current Skincare Regime

Spending a lot of time worrying about a) my skin, b) breaking my nails, and c) my wedding perfume at the moment.  The wedding is eleven days away now (seriously, where the hell has the year since we got engaged gone?), and I thought I’d share some of my routines with you. Nails and perfume will come later, but for today, I’m focusing on skincare. All […]

My current skincare regime

Don’t worry, I’m not going to subject you to pics of my skin with no makeup on – well, maybe just the odd one … What I’m using at the moment: Daily: Nude Facial Cleansing Oil – I wasn’t too sure about this at first, I’d heard so many raves about it, people seemed to really like the smell, and I found it more than […]

Organic Wednesday – Neal’s Yard

Just a very, very, very quick post today, I’m rushed for time, and I need to gather my thoughts for my Selfridges/Wholefoods saga post tomorrow! Winter’s really set in this week, and it’s now officially running up to Christmas, so I thought I’d feature something at least a little bit topical this week: Neal’s Yard Frankincense Cream.  I love this stuff, with the change in […]

Organic Wednesday – Elemental Herbology

A couple of months ago, I was lucky enough to meet with, and have a facial from, the lovely Madhvi at Elemental Herbology, and I was delighted by the results at the time.  I was so delighted that I’ve been trying to replicate the results ever since with this little kit here. About the company: “Elemental Herbology was founded by Kristy Goodger, a spa consultant […]
