Skin care routine

My essential winter skin kit!

During winter skin can get tight and dry, I have been using the above products to keep my skin cleansed, moisturised and hopefully glowing!!
First product essential is

I usually use clarins cotton cleansing milk, but while browsing through boots I found this on offer so thought why not! It's for dry and sensitive skin, and advertises itself as being an 'effective makeup remover that's gentle on the skin'. I definitely agree it's a fantastic remover, and works well at removing even full coverage foundations such as double wear. I usually use my eve lom Muslim cloth from space nk to remove with.

After cleansing my skin I like to use a toner such as:

This clarins cleanser contains camomile and is very soothing on my skin. I love the way it sinks into my skin and doesn't make it feel tight.

I bought this eye cream after watching a video by lollipop26. I get dark circles under my eyes and this cream definitely helps to keep them at bay. It's a light cream and doesn't agitate my eyes. It reduces puffiness and keeps the under eye area well moisturised as well as being a great base for stopping my concealer from caking.

Lastly I moisturise with:

A thick creamy moisturiser that sinks straight into the skin. I love that although it's a thick cream it doesn't leave my t-zone oily or greasy. When moisturising I like to focus mainly on my t-zone as this is were my skin is most dry.

Dior Extase Mascara

So it was my birthday last week and I was in desperate need of a new mascara!! I had been purchasing YSL for a while now but I found that it ran out really quickly and I was needing a new one after a month an a half. I only coat the top lashes so it really didn't last long. When I spotted this in Debenhams I thought your mine.
Below is the applicator its really big and bushy perfect for giving long lashes.
I applied my mascara at 7am and took this pic at 6pm. Not transfer onto under eye area (always a positive).

This mascara cost £21 at my local Debenhams and I'm so glad I purchased it. I'm really enjoying having long lashes with one coat of mascara instead of the usual reapplying till the desired effect is achieved.

Has anyone else purchased this mascara? What's your ultimate HG mascara?

Benefit confessions of a concealaholic

So I had been waiting for AGES for this to be released in the UK, and when I first saw it I have to say I was a little disappointed. I love benefit products and the originality of their packaging. I hadn't tried any of the benefit concealers bar erase paste so it was a good way to test out each concealer before committing to full size products.

left to right: erase paste in medium, lemon aid, eye bright, boing in dark shade, boing in lighter shade and that gal primer.
Thought it was a great idea to add a decent mirror and little labelled brushes.

overall verdict- £28.50 for 6 trial size products, this kit will last me ages as you only need a little product. The brushes make applying the make up mess free and i love the fact that when I throw this into my bag it doesn't open up and spill all over the place the magnet actually keeps it shut!(other brands take note)
