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 […]

Skincare of the Week 06.12.15

Having sensitive skin whilst the seasons are changing can be awkward, certainly I find that I have to be extra careful with the active ingredients in skincare when the weather is at its least predictable.  Still being ill with a cough really isn’t helping, either. My skin has been on the verge of being really reactive this week (I can usually tell as tiny bumps […]

Skincare of the week 29.11.15

I’ve been ill for a fortnight now – why there weren’t any posts on the blog last week, sorry! And this is the skincare I’ve been using to help myself look approximately normal again.  It’s not working, I still look like death warmed up, but at least my skin isn’t blotchy and flaking.  For now … Monday brought Biologique Recherche Lait, with PixiBeauty Glow Tonic, […]

Skincare of the Week 8th November 2015

A bit of a mixed bag this week, skincare wise.  Looking at the pictures all in one place kind of makes it clear that I have certain patterns in product usage – Pixi Glow Tonic, for example, I tend to use for two days then swap to Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Toner.  The one product I’ve used consistently this week has been Medik8 Red Alert Serum, […]

Skincare of the Week – 22 August 2015

Joy abounds in the Get Lippie household whenever a parcel from Zelens shows up, and this week I was delighted that the two newest serums in the range appeared on my doorstep.  I’ll be giving Zelens Intense Defence a good going over in the next few weeks, so expect my skincare routines to get a little … visually undistinguishable … for a while.  This was […]

Current Skincare – Night & Day

I’ve been ill recently, necessitating a more than a couple of hospital trips, and it means I need a small procedure later on in the year. It’s nothing too serious, but the feeling of being more rundown than usual has been showing in my skin, and as a result I’ve had to break out some of the big guns in my skincare arsenal.  Far from […]

Current Skincare Routine

Serious Face is Serious  I haven’t had a picture of my face on the blog for a while, and there has been a variety of reasons for that, but I tweeted this – totally makeup free! – instragram picture of my mug the other day, and A Lot of people asked for details of my current skincare routine, so here it is. From left to […]

Current Skincare Routine

Well, it’s two routines really, one for morning and one for evening!  Winter, even a mild winter such as the one we’ve just had can be hard on my temperamental combination oil-dehydrated skin, so the main thing I add to my routines (AM and PM) is to add an oil. So, in the evenings, I’ll do a deep cleanse with Nude Cleansing Oil, lots of […]

My Current Skincare Routine – Reactive Skin

In almost two years of beauty blogging (seriously, how the hell did that happen?) I’ve been incredibly blessed in that my sometimes sensitive skin hasn’t broken out in boils, blotches and mysterious rashes.  Until recently, that is.  Something I’ve been using near my eyes has caused a hot, red, itchy rash, and, to put it mildly, I’m not happy! I’ve narrowed down the possible offenders […]

Review – Clarisonic (First Thoughts)

Ever since I read Gemma’s Clarisonic Diaries posts about her experiences of using a handset for a month over on London Beauty Review a while ago, I’ve wanted one of these sonic beauties!  A couple of weeks ago though, this desire was cemented by the amazingly talented Jody Bloch at the Fern Skin Clinic, who told me that a Clarisonic would definitely help me with […]

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 […]
