Skincare of the Week 8th July 2016

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.  […]

Skincare of the week 2nd May 2016

I’m trialling a couple of new bits and pieces at the moment, mostly from Zelens.  The new pieces I’ve added to my routine are the Zelens Power D Treatment Drops, which I’ve been adding to my serums this week for a lovely antioxidant boost, and I’ve been using them alongside the Zelens Hydra Shiso Balancing Moisturiser too.  Loving the treatment drops, but I really need […]

Skincare of the Week 17 April 2016

I’m still playing “Eenie, meenie, minie, mo” with my skincare at the moment, luckily, it’s all tried and tested stuff that I know works with my skin, so there’s been no irritation, in spite of my background level of stress still being on the high side (year end will do that to you).  Mostly this week, I’ve been welcoming back Kate Somerville Goat Cream – […]

Skincare of the Week 10/04/2016

It’s taken me a while, but I’ve finally managed to get my broadband connected, and unpack some skincare!  Moving to a new house is always stressful, but I had somehow managed to schedule my move for the beginning of a new financial year, and the end of my probationary period at work.  As I’m an accountant, April is a pretty busy month anyway, but … […]

Skincare of the Week 6th March 2016

I didn’t really have a theme for skincare this week, except “get back on track”, because, after a week away and a weekend in Paris my normal routines have gone a little to pot, I have to admit.   On Monday I trialled used May Lindstrom’s Honey Mud in the shower, as a protective mask against the shower water (I do find that water irritates my […]

Skincare of the Week 31 January 2016

A short and sweet Skincare of the Week this week because I was ill, and hanging around a cold bathroom taking pictures of my skincare (like you do) took a deserving backseat to me being wrapped up in the duvet, and slathering myself in Pommade Divine, frankly. Nothing better for a sore nose than Pommade Divine, if you ask me. Anyhoo, yes, I’m still a […]

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: 31/10/2015

A (slightly) different format for Skincare of the Week this week … Also, I’ve decided to introduce a little Product of the Week award too!  This week was busy and stressful, and coupled with a bout of insomnia, it wasn’t really fun.  I did have a good facial this week at the Askinology Facial Bar in Leadenhall Market, which is where I discovered Medik8 Red […]

Skincare of the Week 25/10/15

 It has been a long and busy week here at Get Lippie, and my lifestyle has shown a bit in my skincare choices, I’ve swapped to a more hydrating routine, and I’ve slipped a few new products in too.  I’ll be concentrating on some night-time routines this week.  More after the jump. Early on in the week, my skin was still a bit congested, so […]

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 […]

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 […]

Skincare of the Week 30 August 2015

  You’ll notice a certain “samieness” about my skincare routines this week, mainly because I am trying the new Zelens serums, and that means sticking to things I know.  But a couple of exciting new things have popped up too, so I’ll show you those as well. The Oskia Perfect Cleanser is one of my favourites (and was another cleanser that I was hoarding the […]
