evening skincare routine

First step cleanse…

Cleansing is the nicest part of my evening skincare routine, it’s like taking my shoes off after a long day. For a while I tried the whole double cleanse malarky but my skin doesn’t usually need it. I’m still using Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser and I bloody love it. That rose/plastic-y smell is so addictive that my other cleansers are gathering dust in the corner. If my skin is feeling particularly filthy or congested I will add a second cleanse in the shower. I like NIOD Sanskrit Saponins. It just sucks up any dirt like a hoover. View Post

An eclectic mix of winners…

It’s so good to be back! Last week I was in London for work and as per usual I didn’t get a change to post anything. It was a short trip so other than working in the salon I had hardly any time to myself. I did manage to pick up a few bit’s though that I want to share with you in today’s post. View Post

Some guys wanna be glossy too you know…

There aren’t many people who need an introduction to Glossier. But, just in case, it’s the super cool cosmetics brand from Into The Gloss founder Emily Weiss. I’m currently sitting next to a pile of the products and I’m going to give you my first impressions. And btw there’s a make up look for men coming soon. View Post

If you’re catching a flight then it’s likely you are going somewhere. And whenever we are going somewhere we want to look our best. Being a self confessed skincare junkie I take precautionary measures before all flights, even the short ones. I’m currently taking two flights a month which I guess makes me a frequentish flyer? It’s no secret that flying sucks the life out of our skin so heavy duty skincare is required.

skincare that makes you go ooh…

I mentioned in my 2018 skincare resolutions post that I want to go easy on the retinol and acid. Well I changed my mind. Just kidding! I’m definitely still in the mindset of taking things easy skincare wise. So through some stroke of luck a couple of Alex Carro products arrived at my door. I have tried this brand before and I like it. View Post
