Dealing with pigmentation

Tuesday, 5 July 2016

Since hitting the big 30 I've been dealing with some not so lovely pigmentation. They didn't appear overnight, more a gradual process after coming off Roaccutane, I'm not sure if its linked to the drug or a side effect of not using adequate sun protection on my face in my younger years (sob) if only I could go back and tell my younger self to use SPF on my face no matter what! Any how.. what’s done is done. I spent a huge amount of time researching products to buy which could eradicate my pigmentation and then going forward which products would protect my skin against future sun damage. Firstly I discovered that one magical product is not going to make my dark spots disappear. Its not that simple.. Sadly!


Clinique || take the day off cleansing balm

Thursday, 19 March 2015

My evening cleanse is probably up there on my things I enjoy daily list. Being a full face of foundation kinda girl means that I need something that easily removes my make up that isn't too harsh on my skin. Up until recently I've been using Una Brennans Superfacialist cleansing oil, which is good but I wanted to try something thicker and more make up meltier - is that even a word?! The oil is lovely but a total faff to get out the bottle, ends up all down your arm and over the floor. Not ideal! So in came Clinique's take off the day cleaning balm, prettily packaged in purple. I've been dying to try this for sometime and it didn't disappoint.


Chroma personalised notebooks

I love a notebook. Specially a new one. The possibilities of all the thoughts and ideas you can fill it with. Most of all I love a personalised notebook. When these beauties from Chroma started appearing on my IG feed I knew I had to get involved. After browsing the website I settled on my quotes and colours.
