New Favourites!

Hello everyone! I received my (very late) birthday present from the bestie Sabrina a few weeks ago, photos below.

The Naked 2 has been on my wishlist for a while and now I finally have it! I absolutely love the colours as they are so neutral. I like how smooth and pigmented the shadows are and the brush supplied also works well for me.  

I've heard so many people raving about the Shu Uemura eyelash curlers, so this was also on my wishlist. I am now currently using these and not my lancome curlers. I find the Shu Uemura slightly better than my previous curlers, but my lashes don't stay up for long. Maybe it's my mascara (Clinique high impact mascara 01 Black) or maybe because I've worn false eyelashes on top after so I don't notice ahaha. But all in all, it's a good lash curler, I find it easier to curl my lashes with this because of the nice plump rubber cushion.

♥ Daily Skincare Routine ♥

Everyone knows that it is important to look after your skin, especially on your face which is on show ALL THE TIME!

In this post, I am going to share with you the products I use for my daily skincare routine.

First off, in the morning I like to use Simple Clear Skin oil balancing exfoliating wash. Because I have combination skin and my T-Zone tends to get oily, I use this to help balance facial oils.

Next I use Lancôme Tonique Douceur (Toner) which softens and hydrates the skin and is alcohol free. This product is recommended for Normal to combination skin. I apply this using a cotton a pad, but you can pour a small amount into your palms and pat onto your face if you wish.

Moisturiser next! The one I use is Lancôme Hydra Zen Neurocalm which is a soothing anti-stress moisturising cream, suitable for all skin types, even sensitive.
Now this step has just been introduced to my daily routine because of a new product purchase; Tony Moly Panda's Dream Good-bye Dark Eye Corrector. My dark circles are pretty annoying and I've been finding it hard to cover up with concealer! So I decided to try out this product to see if it will help reduce my dark circles, a proper review of this product will be up soon!

Then depending on what I do i'll either apply my makeup, or just leave it as that if i'm staying at home all day!

Onto the night~~ If I have makeup on then remove all of that. For my eyes I use The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Lip and Eye Remover

 My review on this product can be found here.

After make-up removal (if any), I'll use a face wash, I rotate between SkinFood Egg White Pore Foam
and The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam

I probably won't do a review on these face washes... (maybe later, maybe)

Finally, I'll finish off with Hydra Zen Nuit Neurocalm which is a soothing recharging night cream
However recently I've been replacing this with something else as I am currently trying out a new product, which is The Face Shop Raspberry Roots Sleeping Mask, the review for this will be up in a week!
