My First SheSaidBeauty Box | November

So I know that this is a very late post considering everyone else got their SheSaid box about a week ago but I subscribed at the beginning of the month so it took a bit longer for mine to come! I am a new subscriber to SheSaidBeauty and I was very excited to get my box and I am even more excited to get the Christmas one!

You probably all ready know what all the packaging looks like but I was overly excited when it came and overloaded on pictures! I love the pink box that it came in, that's not going to get lost in the post now is it!

Just a quick snapshot of the box and the packaging inside, again you've probably already seen it, but on the off chance that you haven't then here it is! Its wrapped in pink tissue paper with a cute ribbon and the SheSaid sticker!

So I opened my box and it looked like this. I must admit I had a little squeal when I saw everything, on first impressions I thought it looked pretty packed full which was a good sign! I'm also loving the little straw packing material they use.

So I'll give you a quick run through of the goodies and give you the description I got on my card and what I thought upon first impressions.

1. Andrew Barton Hold it Right There Surefix Grips and Ponybands - 'Designed to keep hair under control. Hold it Right There Surefix grips and ponybands are stronger, thicker and uniquely shaped to hold even the thickest most unruly hair secure'. On first impressions I thought big whoop they are grips and hairbands but upon closer inspection I noticed the little elastic bands around the hair band itself which I thought was pretty unique. Although the more I thought about it, I began to realise that the elastic on the bands is probably going to be bad for your hair and may cause breakages. I shall give them a go and see what I think. 24 Grips - £2.00, 10 Ponybands - £2.50.

2. MakeBelieve enhance Luminizer Skin Highlighter- 'Highlight cheeks and upper eyelids with this shimmering, celestial pink luminator. Dab onto cheekbones and under eyebrows, with finger, and gently smooth for a professional, finished look'. This was one of the products I was most happy to see, although I do have to admit I would have preferred the bronzer. I didn't realise this was a cream at first until I gave it a swatch, and I must say it feels lovely and silky and I am very excited to use it! £7.50

3. Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Night Cream (5ml sample) - 'This smoothing night cream, with oil from organically grown Rosa mosqueta seeds, aids the regeneration of the outer layer of the skin during the night.' I was happy to receive this one as I have been wanting to try and new night cream for a while now, the scent is quite over powering and from what I could tell the formula seems quite thick but even so I am excited to try this one too! Full size £14.95 for 30ml, actual product was a 5ml sample size worth £2.95

4. Yardley Royal English Daisy Eau de Toilette (1ml sample) - 'A light refreshing, long lasting Body Spray, with an elegant dewy fresh, green floral fragrance with top notes of green leaves and apple, a heart of hyacinth and white rose with warm base notes of sandalwood and musk.' I really like the smell of this perfume, its very fresh and quite summery which of course wouldn't be too great to wear during the upcoming months, but who cares I'm still going to wear it anyway! Full size £14.95

5. Redken Smooth Lock Shampoo & Conditioner (2x 10ml samples) - 'The lasting smoothness you could only dream about is now a reality! NEW Smooth Lock, Redken's latest hair care innovation, starts with an exclusive semi-permanent salon service that seals in frizz-free manageability and smoothness that lasts up to 10 shampoos'. I was glad to get something from RedKen, I have been wanting to try some of their products for years but I have never got round to it. So fingers crossed I like the shampoo & conditioner.

6. Murrays Manicure Matchbook Nail Files - 'These cute candy-striped miniature files are an absolute must for your handbag. If you are anything like us you will soon have a pack of these mini files in every bag for nail emergencies'. At the end of the day these really are just nail files so there's not much to say about them. The design is cute and I'm sure I'll get plenty of use out of them. £1.99

Overall I am pretty pleased with this box and I am very excited for the Christmas one! 

Are you subscribed to SheSaid? If so, what did you get in your box?

New Nail Varnish Purchases | L.A Colors

So a couple of posts back you may have noticed I did a nail of the day post and I featured an L.A Colors nail varnish that I was absolutely in love with! So today I went into a little shop in my town and I saw that they sold these, I got a little bit too excited when I saw them!

1. Blue Lagoon 2. Treasure Island 3. Power Outage 4. Tropical Storm 5. Voltage (clear) 6. White

So this one is called power outage, its similar               This one is called blue lagoon, its a deep
to the other colour I have but its a bit deeper.              blue colour you could almost say it was
Each photo shows two coats of colour.                             black with a blue tinge.

This one is called Tropical Storm, I would               This one is called Treasure Island, it is a glitter
consider it to be a slate colour, its not too                polish and I love it! I haven't found a polish
silvery. I don't think I would've liked it as                 that packs this much glitter on before, so glad
much if it was a straight up silver.                                 I got this one!

I also purchased a clear one and an art deco one as you can see above, I was in a rush so I didn't have a lot of time to look through the art deco ones but I knew I could use a white so I just grabbed that one! The brush is very thin and perfect for creating nail art.

Overall I really love these nails varnishes and for £1 you can't really go wrong! Would definitely recommend these varnishes, they dry really fast and last for a very long time! Definitely going to purchase some more!

Do you like the L.A color nail varnishes? If so which ones should I purchase next?

My Favorite Scents!

So seeing as Christmas is coming up I'm guessing I may be getting a few more perfumes/fragrances from people so I thought I would do a post sharing my current favorite scents with you! Now I'd just like to add that I am awful at describing scents! But I will give it my best shot! :)

1. Next Diamonds - Next describe the scent as 'An opulent white floral fragrance entwined with fresh fruit nectars and crystalline musks', I have to say that I completely agree with this description! It definitely has a floral base with hints of fruit but it isn't overly sweet, as the description says it does have a musk to it. You can purchase this perfume here.

2. Katy Perry Purr - The scent description is 'This deliciously flirty accord opens with enchanting top notes of juicy sweet peach nectar freshened with dewy green bamboo and crunchy forbidden apple leading us down to a floral garden of white jasmine blossom, hot pink freesia and Bulgarian roses. All of this is then enveloped in exotic indulgent tones of vanilla orchid, warm white amber, creamy sandalwood and nuzzling skin musks'. Now I think this is a very girly scent but again its not too sweet or overbearing. Now again I can definitely smell the floral side of this perfume which is quite musky and then there is another side to it which is the sweetness and together they make the perfume smell absolutely divine! If you get a chance definitely go a give this one a smell. Its been out for a while now and isn't that expensive anymore so it would make the purrfect Christmas gift (see what i did there :P). You can purchase it from here.

3. Soap & Glory Glam-a-lot - Soap & Glory describe the scent as 'Super sexy, warm, rich, racy and veritably voluptuous fragrant body spray with fresh flowers layered on a woody, vanilla musk base' Now again I agree completely with this description, the body spray definitely isn't very girl, its musky and definitely woody! I usually give this a spritz in the morning along with a perfume of my choice. It is quite overpowering at first but over the day it does calm down. It is also said to smell just like Viktor and Rolf's Flowerbomb but for a fraction of the price. You can purchase it here

4. Impulse body spray in Sweet Smile Pear & Jasmine - The scent description is 'A blend of exotic oriental scents and citrus notes that will leave you subtly yet exquisitely perfumed.' I absolutely love this body spray, I can without a doubt say it is the nicest one I have ever used and probably the only one that I am going to repurchase. It smells sweet, citrusy and amazing! You can purchase it here

5. Diesel Loverdose - The scent description is 'An addictive & unique fragrance with top notes of mandarin & star anise, followed by the two key notes of liquorice & rich vanilla followed by a base of sensual dry woods.' This is another perfume that i completely adore! There is a strong presence of liquorice and vanilla, the vanilla isn't really sweet its more of a vibrant powerful vanilla. You are probably thinking that those two scents would smell horrible together but believe it or not they don't! Again if you get the chance definitely go and give this one a smell! You can purchase it here!

6. Lipsy - The scent description is 'A mixture of orange, pear & ginger with hints of floral undertones rose, jasmine, violet, all in a cutesy pink heart shaped bottle.' Now if I'm honest this is my least favourite out of all these scent but it is still a very nice everyday perfume. It is meant to smell young and fresh but I personally feel it gives off more of an older scent. You can purchase it here.

I also love Chanel Chance but I ran out of it a while ago...I'm secretly hoping Santa brings me another one!

My Week in Instagram Pictures #1

Hey everyone! I haven't done a post in a while so I though I would do a quick post showing you the last week or two of my life in instagram pictures! Enjoy.

1st Row: Me getting ready to go to my boyfriends, outfit, new shoes
2nd Row: Shopping, New Laptop, Windows 8
3rd Row: New iPhone cover, Lancome testers, Me!

1. So I went to visit my boyfriend for a while during half term! I don't get to see him a lot lately, due to work and college so it was nice to spend a few days with him! Even if he is a grumpy so and so! The first three pictures are me getting ready/what I wore and the new shoes I got from Primark that I was loving!

2. When I got back from my boyfriends I had some time to kill while waiting for the bus so I decided to go spend some money! I bought: a hair dye, a new heat protectant, frizz ease 3 day straight, frizz ease shine spray and a charlie body spray (which smelt vile fyi). When I got home I arrived to find my new laptop waiting on the bed for me! Somebody stood on my old laptop and I have to admit I was actually really upset, it cost a lot of money and I loved it! The screen was ruined so I had no choice but to get a new one but I of course couldn't afford to be forking out for an expensive one so I ended up getting a ASUS laptop, it was only £299 and so far I love it! It came with windows 8 which made me really excited, even if it is really difficult to use!

3. I also ordered a new iPhone case, I actually haven't had a case on my phone for a couple of months now which isn't really a good idea considering how much I drop it. You can purchase the case I got here. My mother then went and purchased a face cream from lancome and had some samples given to her that she didn't like so she kindly gave them to me. So over the past couple of days I have been trying out the 'Softening hydrating toner' and the 'soothing anti-stress moisturiser  which I'm told is great for acne prone skin. I must admit I am loving them so far, its been a long time since i have used a toner!

So that was the last week or two of my life in pictures! I hope you liked it! What have you been getting up to over the past week?

Review | St Tropez Gradual Tan

Hey guys!
So today I thought I would do a quick review of the St. Tropez gradual tanner. So I got this about a month ago and it was free with Elle magazine (I believe). I have used it a couple of times and thought I would share my opinions on it with you guys! 

Description of the product
      So this is how the St Tropez website describes the product 'Our enriched, nourishing body moisturiser cleverly combines skin care benefits with a healthy touch of bronze. This gradual self-tanner will build up a gorgeous, golden glow over time.'  I can somewhat agree this statement, it really does give you a lovely glow almost instantly after applying it which I love although there are certain aspects to it that do let the product down which I will talk about later!

Does it work?
      Yes it does do what it says on the tin although I have tried other gradual tanners and they have be quite a bit darker than this one which I do prefer. It doesn't have that horrible green tinge that most tans and gradual tans have which I like, it really is a more bronzy colour in comparison to other tans which I think is brilliant.

Any downsides?
      I hate to say it but yes there is one huge downside to this product in my eyes, I don't know if anyone else feels this way but the product really does smell a lot like furniture polish! Don't get me wrong I love the smell of furniture polish... I just don't like the smell of it on my skin as I'm sure most people wouldn't.
      Another downside is of course the price, now I wouldn't mind paying this much for an amazing tanner but this is just a gradual tan and I'm sure most people could get through a bottle within a week or two if they use it everyday. As I said earlier I did not pay for this, it was free with a magazine but I still don't think it would repurchase it with my own money!   This product can be purchased from the St Tropez website for £14.30

Are there any good points?
      The packaging. I absolutely love all the St Tropez packaging, I think its so sleek and good looking. I don't like packaging to be too flamboyant; I like simple and elegant.

What do you think overall?
     Overall I would say that it is a very nice product but its not brilliant. The products itself is good, it gives you a lovely bronzy glow although personally its not dark enough for me. The smell I thoroughly dislike on my skin and of course the price isn't great either.

So this is what the cream looks like, just like any other moisturiser although close up you can see flecks of the dark pigment that obviously builds up the gradual tan.    Do excuse my tattoo :L

And this is what you skin looks like a couple of seconds after it is rubbed in and this is the glow I was talking about! You can really see it in the pictures and I think it is lovely. I will continue to use the product to see if I can get over the smell and start to enjoy it! But seriously...that glow is awesome.

What do you think of the St Tropez Gradual Tan. Do you like it?

Nails of the Week Featuring L.A Colours Varnish

Hey guys!
So yes it has been a while since my last post! I don't know what's wrong with me, I can't seem to stick to a schedule! 
But today I thought I would ease back in with a nail post, I'm just going to be showing you what I plan on wearing on my nails for the next week and what products I used!

So these are the products I used. I used an L.A Colours Nail Varnish in Figi Purple, this nail varnish also has a built in nail harder which i can vouch for. I also used a little pot of nail glitter on my ring finger over the top of the nail varnish.

So this is what they looked like finished. Just to clarify I am wearing acrylic nails, I did originally have the colour on my natural nails but I ripped half of one of my nails off at work and I cant stand the feeling of a broken nail so I put my acrylics on! In the previous photo I referred to the nail harder that is built into the nails varnish and you can definitely tell, when I had it on my natural nails they definitely felt a lot stronger. My nails were quite weak feeling before I applied the nail varnish because I was previously wearing some false nails and the glue damages them! Oh and the L.A colour nail varnish is super fast drying, one of the fastest drying nail varnishes I've tried in a long time. And as for the glitter on my ring finger all I did was sprinkle it over the wet nail varnish then put a clear top coat over the top of it :)

I think these nail varnishes retail for 99p which in my eyes is an absolute bargain. I did not purchase this nail varnish, I in fact saw my mum using it and asked her if I could try it and I'm very glad that I did! It is brilliant.

So even though this was only meant to be me showing you my nails for the week, I've actually ended up giving you a small review! So all in all, I hope you like this post and I would definitely recommend the nail varnish I used. Definitely going to be trying more colours!!

Review | MAC Lipstick | Watch Me Simmer

Hey everyone! 

So today I am going to do a quick review of a lipstick I have been loving lately! It is a M.A.C lipstick in Watch Me Simmer, and it is an amplified colour. So this lipstick is from the 'Reel Sexy' collection although you can still purchase it from the permanent line.

Here is a swatch for you, sometimes the colours can differ when on the lips so this is the colour straight out of the tube.

Here is what the lipstick looks like on my lips, I think the lighting is making it look a bit different to the colour on my hand because it was taken by the window. The colour is more like the one on my hand but a bit deeper. 

Overall I really do love this colour, its obviously a quite intense lipstick but I feel that its not too bright to wear during the day. I in fact wear it during the day on a regular basis, its lovely and creamy and doesn't dry your lips out at all. It does last most of the day and even when it wears off it still leaves a nice pink stain on your lips. I would give this lipstick a 5/5!

Review: Glamour Magazine & Benefit!

Hey everyone!

So I know you all probably know about the free Benefit Products that are being given away with Glamour magazine but I still thought I would do a post about it and tell you what I think of the product I got! So I didn't actually get to pick what product I got with the magazine, my mum was popping to the shop so I gave her some money and asked her to grab me one. Now the Bad Gal Lash was probably the last one out of all the products that I wanted, but hey ho, beggars cant't be choosers! 

So the Badgal lash is meant to be 4.0g but in all honesty I personally think its just an over sized tube with a tiny bit of product in, but what can you expect for £2? Although the packaging is really good quality and its a really good size if you want to take a mascara on the go!

The brush is very large which is good and bad, it does pack a lot of product on it which is good for thicker lashes although the fact that it is so big does make it hard to get the outer lashes, so I couldn't really get a lot of length.

First off, this photo makes my eyes look really wonky but they don't look that bizarre in real life! I did put the mascara over another one but the older one had sort of worn off. Overall the mascara is nice but not great! Its just an average mascara, although I think it would be better when its layered so I'm probably going to use it along side other mascaras!

EDIT: I actually have just tried the mascara by itself and I take the word 'average' back, its actually pretty good, its made my lashes massive!!

Real Techniques Stippling Brush vs The Beauty Blender

Hello my lovelies! 

So sorry I haven't posted in long time, I don't know what's wrong with me I always put off posting! I never really think I have anything interesting to post about and I'm also more of a video girl but hey ho I'm going to try and get back into the swing of things! 

I thought that today I would do a review/ comparison of the Real Techniques Stippling Brush and the Beauty Blender.   

Sorry the brushes are dirty but I'm in a bit of a rush so I didn't really have time to wash them! :)

So I first purchased the beauty blender and when I tried it I was in a rush so it sort of came out patchy and it didn't really look that appealing! I then purchased the Stippling brush and when I first tried it I was very impressed! My foundation blended in really well and it overall left a really nice finish, I carried on using this for a week or so. Then today I found myself with some extra time so I thought I would try the Beauty Blender again, the first time I tried it I sort of just swirled it around my face (there is no better way to describe it :L) but today instead I dotted the foundation around my face and used the blender to dab it into my skin. Now this method does take a bit longer but I found that it left really nice results, it doesn't even look like I'm wearing foundation.

Both the Beauty Blender and the Stippling Brush both have their up and downsides, so I'm going to give you a list of each!

Beauty Blender
Stippling Brush
Cheap - I purchased mine off eBay for around £4.
Leaves a very nice finish.
Made of a strong material.
Soft on the skin.
Leaves a natural finish. 
Flared out bottom so it can stand alone.
Small and compact, easy for travel.
Quick and easy to apply foundation.
Takes a bit longer to achieve a nice finish as oppose to the brush.    
Its fairly expensive
Make up on the sponge is more easily transferable to clothing etc.
Sometimes it doesn't blend as well on my nose, you can see brush marks.

Overall I would give the beauty blender a 4.5/5 and I would give the stippling brush a 4/5. I think that after today I've become a firm lover of the beauty blender, I'm so glad I gave it another chance and I would say that personally for me it JUST pips the stippling brush to the post! Although saying this the Stippling brush is still absolutely amazing! I would definitely recommend them both! 

This is a photo of how the beauty blender worked with my foundation.

Simple Leopard Print Nails!

So again I got this tutorial off 'cutepolish' on YouTube and I thought I would show you how mine came out and what I did!

1. Paint nails a base colour, a colour a bit browner than the one I used would be better!
2. Then randomly paint some dots with a brown nail varnish
3. And finally paint some lines around the brown dots with some black nail varnish as well as some little black messy dots by themselves.
4. Finish with a clear coat.

This is really really easy to do and just to prove it, above is a picture of my right hand and we all know how hard it is to paint your nails with your left handed if you're not usually that handed.

Mothers Day Present Idea's

Hey guys! I know its quite late for a Mothers day post seeing as it is on Sunday but you might be a last minute shopper like me so thought I would take you through what I have bought my mum for mothers day! I love my mum to bits and every year she always tells me and my sisters not to get her anything but of course we always do! She's always very busy and gets tired so I thought I would do her a sort of 'pamper bag', in it I've included bits and bobs that she's said she wanted but never got.

I'll now take you through everything I got her! 

So the first two things are both Soap and Glory, I got her 'Hand Food' (£5.00) and 'Heel Genius' (£5.50). She's on her feet most of the day and she's always moving stuff about with her hands or washing up so she gets painful hands and feet. So I thought these would be great for her, now this is embarrassing to say but she does like me to give her foot rubs, hand massages and facials so I thought I could do that for her on Mothers day using these products (I'm such a lovely daughter :P)

The next lot of photos weren't taken by me because I have ordered these products but they haven't arrived yet. I've noticed that she doesn't really have many nice body washes or lotions for when she has a bath or shower. So I thought I would get her some, these are from superdrug and were both £2.05, I didn't think she would like the more sweeter/kiddy scents and I did want to get her the lemon or mango one but they were out of stock so I chose these ones!

I also got her two MUA nail polishes, I remember her buying one a while ago and telling me how she loved the colours and liked how fast they dried. The blue one is shade 1 and the bronzey one is shade 7, she's obviously a more mature lady so I didn't want to get her any really bright colours! These are £1 each.

The other day she mentioned how she really wanted to wear blusher but it doesn't suit her because she has got more of an oily face so I thought I would get her a peachy cream blusher as the texture of it would blend in a lot better with the rest of her face. This is the 'Gosh Natural Touch Cream Blusher in 004 Silky Rose' and it was £4. And finally she has been using my Herbal Essences smooth and soft intensive mask, so I thought I would get her one of her own as I know she loves it, this was £3.99

I was planning on getting her a lot more but my wages hasn't gone in! So hopefully I'll pick her up a few more bits tomorrow! When buying a mothers day present try and think about what she actually wants, has she mentioned anything that she wants to you over the past couple of months? Just think about what she'll like and appreciate! :)

Hope you enjoyed this, bye my lovelies!

NOTD: Dotty and Diagonal

So I thought I would do a quick post showing you my nails! I've named the post nails of the day, but these will probably nails of the week. I got this tutorial off 'cutepolish' which is a YouTube channel of a lovely girl who post tons of easy nail tutorials although you probably already watch her anyway! But I'll quickly talk you through what I did!

1. Diagonally place sellotape across your nails.
2. Paint nail black, I did two coats of the Barry M black nail varnish.
3. Wait for them to dry fully, then randomly place some white dots ( I used the brush, I didn't use a special dotting tool or anything)
4. Then slowly peal the sellotape off in an upwards motion.
5. And finish with a clear top coat! VoilĂ !

This Months 'To Buy' List!

So this month there has been a lot of goodies that I have had my eye on and I'd like to purchase the majority of them this month (march), which is a tad ambitious but I can hope!

The first thing I've wanted for a while are the 'Boots - 200 Clear Nails', I've wanted them since 'BroganTatexo' told us about them on her channel! I usually have acrylic nails on which I do myself but they do take a long time to do and they can chip after a while and filling them in gets a bit tedious. So when she told us about these I thought they looked brilliant and they would be a lot easier than the acrylics!

The next thing is a tanning mit....but its no normal tanning mit! :L Its one that can reach your back!! I found this utterly amazing when I discovered it! When tanning I either leave my back or ask my mum to do it which is quite annoying so it would be great to be able to do it myself! :)

I've also been wanting some heated rollers, I love the kind of curls that they make and I want curls to look softer!

I've also been wanting a tangle teezer, I've seen a lot of Bloggers and YouTubers mentioning that they have purchased this and I think it looks brilliant. Sometimes my extensions do get quite knotty and I don't like tugging on them with a brush because its obviously not good for them so I think this would be a better alternative :)

So you probably know that Nicki Minaj has a range with OPI and the colours look absolutely amazing! I want them all, except the pinky purply one.

MAC has also re-released their Tendertones in a new collection and I am soooooo happy! I only started liking the Tendertones just as they were getting rid of them! So I am so glad that they are back again!

I also want the Urban Decay Naked Palette, I know this product is quite old but I still haven't got it, but I've watched tutorials and reviews of it and I want it so badly! The colours look lovely and they are the kind of tones that I love!

More Nicki Minaj, you're probably thinking I'm obsessed with her or something, I'm not but I love all the ranges she is bringing out with companies! So it is the Viva Glam Lipstick in 'Bright Yellow Pink'.

Next is Benefits 'Porefessional', with my new skincare routine I don't get many spots but I do get one or two every now and again and they don't look very flattering underneath make up, so anything that minimizes them would be brilliant!

The next two things are the Real Techniques Make Up Brushes, the ones I wanted are the stippling brush and the blush brush.

And finally I have been looking for a liquid eyeliner, I usually use gel liners but I want to try something new! So I'm hopefully going to get the Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner.

And that's everything, I hope you enjoyed this post! Byee!!

My Skincare Routine

Today I'm going to be taking you through my skincare routine, I would rather do it on here as oppose to making a video because I don't really want to demonstrate it as I have some spot scaring on my chin and I can't stand it!

Firstly I would like to say that I did purchase the cleanser and wash about 5 months ago but I only used them both a couple of times and I didn't really give them a chance and I really wish I did! I'm fairly sure I gave up on it because I was still getting spots but I wasn't using it in the same way as I am now and I have also added another product that really helps!

I use the first two products when I am in the shower which I personally think makes a massive difference. I don't do this routine everyday because I think it would be too harsh, I only do it every other day.

So the first thing I use is by the brand 'Good Things Stay Clear' and it is their purifying cleanser, this smells amaze-balls. It really does get all of your make up off, I even use it for my eye make up although I am careful not to get it in my eyes because it does sting! I use this with the scrublet that comes with the L'oreal Paris Perfect Clean Gentle Scrub (but I don't use the actual scrub).

Then after I use the Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-in-1 Wash & Mask, after I have used my cleanser I apply a thick layer to my face and leave it on for about 3-5 minutes (whilst in the shower) then again I use the scrublet to wash it off. After I done both these I find that my skin feels really soft.

Finally I use the Benefit Triple Performance Facial Emulsion, even though my skin does feel soft after using the other two products it still begins to get a bit dry after after about an hour or so, so I apply a thin layer of the moisturiser. Even though I don't use the first two products everyday, I do moisturise every night because my face does get dry especially around my nose and chin.

So that is everything I do for my skincare and I have found lately that I'm not getting as many spots, its usually only one every couple of days, and that more or less goes away if I carry on with the routine! I've also introduced this routine to my boyfriend and it has worked wonders for him! :)
