The key to flawless skin for me is definitely in the skin care! Here is my personal routine to help keep my skin clear:
I ALWAYS wash my makeup off before bed! Even if it’s just with baby wipes.
I like to wash my makeup off with simple soap, then wash my face with:
Clean & Clear deep action cream wash
Clean & Clear black head clearing scrub
Clean & clear advantage daily spot control wash
I then like to scrub off any dead skin from my face with an exfoliator glove
I then get a cotton pad and put a bit of body lotion on and use to wipe any left over eye makeup, then I put clean & clear deep cleansing lotion on a cotton pad and wipes allover my face to get any left over makeup off.
I like to moisturise then with clean & clear dual action moisturiser, put a bit of benefit ‘it’s potent’ eye cream under my eyes.
I like to put my witch blemish stick over my forehead, cheeks and chin.

So I received my October Birchbox in the post yesterday – here’s what I got:
A pink Birchbox zip bag
This is perfect to store your makeup in so I’ll definitely be using this!
KMS California tame frizz
I think I’ll really love this product as I do struggle with frizzy hair
Balance me cleanse & smooth face balm
I actually have quite sensitive skin so I have to be quite careful what I use on it. I like the sound of this so I’ll give it a try!
Shave works – The cool fix
This is a gel lotion that you apply to shaving rash/bumps and it soothes. I don’t really suffer from shaving rash but it’s always good to have something like this just in case!
Pixi shea butter lip balm in ripe raspberry
This is a tinted lip balm that I know will come in handy for work or bare face days!
Benefit – it’s potent eye cream
I’m not usually mad on eye creams as my skin is very sensitive but I’ve heard great things about this, so I’ll give it a shot!
This looks just like a lipstick but it’s a pen! I looove this, I’ll be taking it to work on Monday!
Am I going to carry my subscription onto next month?
I’m unsure yet, I’ll give the products a try but there’s not really anything in there that looks AMAZING – so we’ll see!
