Morning Skin Care

These days I am really taking skin care seriously. It has suddenly dawned on me I'm not as young as I used to be. Sigh. I know growing old is a good thing as so many don't get the chance but the thought still does scare me just ever so slightly.

A few weeks back, I splashed out on some new skin care products which I had been lusting over for a while.  I have been using them ever since because I am in love.  I have slotted them into my existing routine and below is an updated list of all the items I have been using on my face.

Liz Earle | Cleanse and Polish
I love loooooove this stuff, I couldn't imagine my life without it. This product makes that awful chore of makeup removal so easy and fast. Liz Earle and I are friends for life. If you have not tried this, give it a go.  I promise you'll love it.

Simple | Smoothing Scrub
This is my go to scrub if I want gentle (but excellentexfoliation. There is just something about this inexpensive scrub that works a treat on my skin. A pea sized amount goes far and you will get yourself baby soft skin. 

Estée Lauder | Advanced Night Eye Cream*
Bags and dark circle run in the DNA of my family so for quite a few years I have been on a mission to combat them.  I had been using Bobbi Browns Hydrating Eye Cream for years but I fancied a change.  This little sample has lasted longer than expected and I will be buying a big old pot once this is gone.  I have noticed my eyes do look smoother.  Big grin!

Estée Lauder | Advanced Night Repair
I can see why this is award winning. Since I got this I can't put it down. Your skin use feels so good after using it. A morning and evening product, a large bottle I have been told will last 5 to 6 months. It can be expensive but it's entirely worth the money if you use it consistently.

Estée Lauder | Idealist Pore Minimising Skin Refinisher
As time ticks on pores are raising their heads and this is my weapon of choice to try and take them down! Die you evil pores! Pardon my out burst but I honestly don't like seeing myself get pores, it makes me sad that my skin is changing.  I know it something I will have to come to terms with one day.  But for now I'll fight on with this by my side. I have not been let down by the smoothing affect this gives my skin and I think I'm seeing some improvements. Yayyyyyy! 

Estée Lauder | Advanced Multi Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme*
I've used a few moisturisers in my time but this is probably the best that I have used as I feel it gives me long lasting moisture.  A thick cream product which smells of cucumber and it also has SPF 15.  Fabulous!  It protects my face from the evils of the sun and moisturises.  Who wants wrinkles and dry one!

Clarins | Beauty Flash Balm
There is something so good about this balm, be it the feel on your skin or the smell.  It's just a wonder product.  When I put this on, I just automatically feel revived and alive. You can use it in two different ways (a 15 minute face mask or a foundation primer).  I usually throw it on as a primer or just before bed. I think I tend to over use it. Oops! Hangs head in shame.

So that's it.

I hope you liked my morning skin care routine.  If you want to see me in action, click to my YouTube channel link here or click below to see these products in full swing.

Hello ... guess who?

Hey everyone, long time no speak.

So it's been a while since I blogged on good old jolly and even made a video on my YouTube channel.  There are lots of reasons for this and I will not bore you with every detail.  However I have made a recent video to explain why I went AWOL, trust me it wasn't an exciting reason.  But if want to know ... head on over to my channel or click below you will know why.

I hope you've all been well and you haven't all left me. I shall be returning shortly with posts.
