The details: Skincare





I have to admit I feel a little ripped off I was under the delusion that you reached your mid twenties and were finally gifted with perfect skin. Acne free, blemish free, oil free you name it you got it. Unfortunately I am realising that this is not the case and that I need to put a little more consistent effort into looking after my skin.

A lot of my skin problems seem to be hormone related but these are the products that I am finding helpful in keeping the rest of my problems under control...

Lush Ultra Blandm - This is my fave new skin care product, I use it every night to take off my make up and it leaves my skin really clean and soft.

Neutrogena Deep Clean - I have been using this cleanser for a couple of weeks hoping that it will clear out my pores. So far I am pretty happy with it but need a little longer to test it.

Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliator - I use this 2-3 times a week and love that it is not too harsh on my skin and doesn't dry out my skin like some exfoliators.

Clinique Clarifying Lotion- I use this toner twice a day and find it makes a difference to my nose and chin area. This bottle Has lasted me ages so is good value.

Lacura Face Moisturiser- to be honest I am not that fussy when it comes to moisturiser but I like this ones price $10 and its thick consistency.

Paw paw cream - I live by this, I use it as lip balm most the time but also dry skin or insect bites, I always have it thrown in my handbag.

What are your fave skin care products?


  1. I've always used the whole Chanel Hydra Max skincare line, when my last set finished, I thought I'd try something new - mostly because all my blogger friends are constantly rotating and trying new products. I'm glad I did, I've tried a few new things. Right now I'm getting through some Dermalogica products but to be honest I think I'm going back to Chanel. And that paw paw cream, I've tried it and for some reason I just don't get it, doesn't work for me!

  2. You look so nice without makeup! I'm so jealous. I really want to try that lush product now xx

  3. You have such a good skincare regime. To be honest I usually just have really basic cheap brands. Like Nivea or Neutrogena and such. I also like to use Aveeno. I live for my paw paw cream. It's always in my bag. x

  4. I love the Body Shop Tea Tree Oil range - it's great for blemish-prone skin! And recently I've also added in a Clinique serum for more moisture and some anti-aging goodness. I agree - I'm getting to the stage where I'll have wrinkles AND pimples; no fair! Haha :)

    Life etc

  5. i use a bunch of these products and a lot definetly work!

  6. I will be reaching the dreaded 3-0 tomorrow (eek!) and I have already noticed a deep difference in my skin...

  7. I cant live with out my paw paw cream it's the best.

  8. I love hearing about beauty products that other people swear by! For me, Lush is just fantastic. I love their cleansers/exfoliators, I have "Dark Angels" which cleans up my skin really well but is a little rough. "Angels on Bare Skin" also does a marvellous job and is a little lighter. I also love L'Occitane Shea Hand Cream (but am too poor to actually buy it for myself, I received it as a gift!), and Garnier BB Cream is a daily must-have for me.

  9. i have never heard of paw paw cream - i'm gunna go look it up

  15. Hello! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount
    of work? I'm completely new to operating a blog however I do
    write in my journal everyday. I'd like to start a blog so I
    will be able to share my personal experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

    items, if you have not done so before. It's best if it includes
    numerous trainers, including those who make money using the techniques they teach.
    What they fail to realize is that it takes time to start making
    money on the Internet.

    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out
    the whole thing without having side effect , people can take
    a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
