DAY 25 - #mayskinchallenge - Anti-Haul! 🚫
I've been backwards and forwards in my mind for days about what to post for this. Obviously I could have gone all Kimberley Clarke on you all but in the end I settled for this... This photo shows 5 empties from over the last few weeks. All of which I've been using up on my body rather than my face as they've been in my stash for too long and are past their best 😔 Oh yes, even the #zelens Power A has been used up on my hands and feet 😩
Moral of the story...don't go crazy and buy everything in sight. Haha.
I think it's a case of finding the right balance between buying what you want when you want it (@staceywith_an_e hit the nail on the head with this the other day) and not buying stuff for the sake of it. There's no denying that it's a crying shame to use up a #tataharper serum on your tummy!!!! 😳
There are products still on my wish list which I do intend to buy but I've also learnt that my skin likes more consistency so I don't need a huge #skincarestash !!

🌙 I'm going to try and use 1-2 samples per day to use up some of my stash. Tonight's sample was a water treatment and totally new to me! It was fun🎉 #PMRoutine 5/28/17 🌙
1️⃣ Cleanse #JordanSamuelSkin Plie cleanser to remove makeup, then #Zelens Z Pure Liquid Cleansing Balm.
2️⃣ Treatment (sample) #Mizon Vita Lemon Sparkling Powder Skin Tightening Moisturizing Glow Skin. Filled a large bowl
With warm water and mixed in packet 1, then packet 2 made the water bubbly and carbonated. Patted on my skin at first, then submerged my face multiple times for 3 minutes. It felt very tingly and prickly with the bubbles. It's supposed to deep clean and leave skin soft and supple. My skin looks smooth and excited to see if I notice a difference in the morning.
3️⃣ Tone Drenched my face with #MayLindstrom The Jasmine Garden
4️⃣ Moisturize May lindstrom The Blue Cocoon and spritzed some more with Jasmine Garden

DAY 23 - #mayskinchallenge - Routine!
Still playing catch up 😔 I'm so sorry @antiagingamber & @morethanjustskin, I must do better!!
So...routines...
As I said a couple of days ago, my skin had really been acting up towards the end of April, beginning of May. Since I got back off holiday on 13th May I've been 100% consistent to hep calm my skin down and so far, so good!! 🤞
These have been my AM & PM routines. Pretty self explanatory. The only comment I can make is that in the mornings I've been spritzing the Odacite treatment mist onto a cotton wool pad and using as a traditional toner.

3️⃣ Oil #LaMer Renewal Oil
4️⃣ Moisturize Creme De La Mer

I'm attempting to organise myself to leave the house for Dubai at 4am!! But I never manage to get packed until the 11th hour, especially so when doing it with 2 very active little ones finding it great fun to undo everything I'm doing!
We're having a jam packed day beforehand though including last minute brunch play date with @lucieandthebump, even more last minute hair appointment with @lucifunnell and then our very first parents evening at Henry's school which I'm a mixture of excited and emotional about!
It's already so hot here I don't know how I am going to cope over there! How have you been spending this glorious day? ☀☀☀

🙈вот и у меня в архиве появилось такое фото. А на самом деле, у меня сегодня выходной. Вот и решила сделать приятное своему личику. Никогда не любила маски, а по мере старения эта, не сложная, процедура стала мне очень даже мила. #facemask #relax #dayforme #beauty #skinfaves

Masking monday is back and I'm spoilt for choice! Which one which one? 🙊

📚Pre-exam morning routine + makeup📚
.
My chemistry exam was this morning and I thought I'd post my quick skincare and makeup routine that I rushed through this morning on very little sleep 😴 I could happily go makeup free but sometimes taking 5 minutes to look more put together and awake helps me to feel more capable! I did my skincare at home and then I put my makeup on during my train ride to the exam and I think it only took about 10 minutes in total!
.
Skincare: 5 minutes ✏️ Cleanse with just warm water and then I turn it to cold and cup it over my eyes to reduce puffiness.
✏️@deciem NIOD Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex
✏️@deciem NIOD Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate
✏️@drunkelephantskincare C-Firma Day Serum
✏️@moogooskincare Soothing MSM Cream
✏️@cancercouncil Professional Sunscreen for Scars SPF 50+ (this has a light tint that's good for fair-light skin tones)
.
Makeup: 5 minutes ✏️My sunscreen has a tint so I just put a little of the @bareminerals Bareskin Concealer under my eyes and on blemishes with my fingers
✏️Set with @byterryofficial Hyaluronic Hydra Powder
✏️Using the same brush bronze with the @ctilburymakeup Filmstar Bronze and Glow across temples, cheeks and on the eye
✏️Again using the same brush I used the @toofaced Love Flush Blush in Baby Love
✏️@byterryofficial Tinted brow gel through the brows
✏️The name of this liner has rubbed off but I just pushed a little black liner into the lashes (and smudged with a pinky finger) and the cream on the lower waterline to hide redness
✏️@kevynacoin Volume Mascara on the lashes
✏️@hurrawbalm in Blue Chamomile Vanilla

🌝PM Exfoliating Routine🌝
.
This routine looks super complicated but I swear it isn't THAT over the top! The retinol I've been on has made exfoliating tricky and I think I've found a method that minimises my irritation. The one upside to being at home studying for exams is that I totally have the time to spread my evening routine over a couple of hours.
.
⚡️@muji_global Oil Cleansing
⚡️@frank_bod Creamy Face Cleanser
⚡️@sundayriley Good Genes (I also often use TLC from @drunkelephant for this step) and let it sit for five minutes ⚡️apply I'm from Honey Mask directly on top of the acid serum and leave it for 1-2 hours (this mask is very moisturising and anti-inflammatory)
⚡️wash off with warm water
⚡️@paulaschoiceau Resist Weightless Advanced Repairing Toner to remove any mask residue
⚡️@deciem NIOD Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex
⚡️Mix an emulsion in my palm of two pumps of @drunkelephantskincare B-Hydra Hydration Gel with two drops of Marula oil and @deciem The Ordinary Niacinamide + Zinc (not pictured)
⚡️@moogooskincare Soothing MSM Cream

Just a quick post before I go to bed. I bet you're all sick of me tonight aren't you as I've been posting like a crazy lady trying to get caught up on the May Skin Challenge hosted by @antiagingamber and @morethanjustskin.
Here's another one for Amber as she's been encouraging us all today to #ShowYourSPF ☀️☀️☀️ And after this scorcher of a week we've had here in the UK, we've certainly been putting our SPF to the test.
Here are just a few photos I've posted previously of some of my favourite SPF's.
There's something here for all times of the year.

DAY 26 - #mayskinchallenge - Indulgent!
Here are the two products from my stash that I believe are indulgent. However, I don't care!!!!
💚#tataharper Purifying Cleanser - at £55 it's not exactly the cheapest cleanser on the market. And I know that there are people out there that say don't waste your money on expensive cleansers because all you do is wash them down the drain BUT I can't help it where this is concerned.
A) (again, I'm with @staceywith_an_e on this) If I want it, why shouldn't I have it. I work hard. I can afford it.
And B) in this case my skin absolutely bloody loves this stuff!!!
I shall most definitely repurchase this once it's done.
💚#katesomerville Nourish Moisturiser - seeing as this is not available in the UK, I have to buy direct from KS online and get it shipped over, paying overseas delivery plus customs, but this is one of my all time favourite moisturisers so I happily pay these charges in order to get my hands on it. I already have a backup from a previous @carolinehirons discount code and will purchase another later in the year.
I'd love to hear what your little indulgent luxuries are 😘😘

DAY 24 - #mayskinchallenge - Warm Weather! ☀️☀️☀️
When I saw today's brief at the start of the month, I laughed and mentally planned to post something along the lines of 'do we ever get any here in the UK?!' but after the last week, I can't say that can I - it's been an absolutely scorcher ☀️☀️☀️ So I've been reaching for spritz toners more than ever. Admittedly not all of these but I just wanted to show what I've got to choose from. I've been reaching for the #larocheposay Serozinc at work during the day as I find the aerosol disperses evenly over makeup and is most refreshing.

❌May Skin Challenge - Day Twenty Five - Anti Haul❌
.
Not much has changed from my last Anti Haul post (Vitners Daughter, Zelens, May Lindstrom and Subscription boxes) but this time I think I want to speak more generally about the types of things I don't need to buy.
.
🚫Makeup - I have so so much makeup. I really don't need anymore (especially lip products, eye shadows and cheek products). I've already gone through it and gifted products I don't really use but it will still be a struggle for me to get through everything I've got. From now on I'm only going to be repurchasing products that have run out or are really really special.
.
🚫Excess Skincare - I made a post relatively recently about what my ideal skincare collection would look like and I won't be buying anything outside what I need. I don't need 4 hydrating serums or 5 cleansers. I'm planning on starting a Bullet Journal and listing products I want to try from each category and then sticking to the #1empty1newbie rule to keep my collection under control. My skin and wallet loves consistency so hopefully my rampant consumerism can get onboard 😂

DAY 21 #mayskinchallenge - Self Care!
I'm a little behind with the challenge I'm sorry ladies @antiagingamber @morethanjustskin - work is hectic on the run up to the bank holiday weekend and my plan was to catch up on my day off yesterday and take a batch of photographs to see me through until the end of the month but with everything that happened here in the UK on Monday night, I didn't feel much like doing anything 😢
So...self care...for me it's simply burying my head in a good book and/or relaxing with a sheet mask on. It's just taking some time out for me. Away from work, away from housework/chores. Peace and quiet. Chill time. (Quite often with a glass of wine 🍷😉)

One of my favorite basics. I use these bars in the shower (duh) and to clean my beauty blender and makeup brushes. I'll take any consistency I can get in my life at this point 👏🏻
