It’s no secret that I am addicted to skincare, so I just had to post about a few new pieces of skincare I have added in to my routine recently.

I had heard about Eve Lom before and seen it in Space NK but never had the chance to give it a whirl, it’s rather pricey but I really believe skincare (along with foundation) is something that’s worth spending money on. I’ve been using the Eve Lom Morning Cleanser recently, it’s a lovely lightweight balm which you apply to dry skin, massage in and leave for a couple of minutes in the morning, before wiping off with warm water. I love cleansing balms and this has to be king of them all, it leaves my skin looking so healthy and glowing.

After this, I pop on the Eve Lom Intense Hydration Serum, another pricey number which I’m not sure I could justify purchasing but oooh it’s absolutely worth it. My skin seems to adore this (honestly, such expensive taste this face has!), I apply it morning and night for an intense concentration of hydration and my skin feels so soft and looks a lot healthier after use. You only need a small amount so I’m expecting to get a fair amount of use out of this bottle of gold. It used Hyaluronic Acid to leave skin looking plumped and hydrated.

Next up is a product that I’ve had for a little while now but I’ve only just come to truly appreciate. RENs AHA Concentrate is a bit like the Alpha H Liquid Gold, but not as harsh. I find myself reaching for the REN version a lot more as it seems to agree with my skin so much more. I try to apply this neat, without moisturiser or anything afterwards as I think these types of products work best like that, I use it at night and in the morning it’s like I have the skin of a baby! It’s so soft and smooth and looks a lot healthier.
I probably use this three times a week and I love the results it gives. 

Lastly, is of course this new Origins number, the Spot Remover Blemish Pads. I love Origins and my skin is prone to blemishes so I’ve been sweeping these over my face morning and night. I have seen a noticeable difference in my skin in just the last couple of weeks, mostly with blemishes healing up a lot quicker than usual. Usually blemish pads like this are so drying and stripping, but these are quite gentle and my skin doesn’t feel tight afterwards which is a good sign.

What do you think of my new skincare bits?

  • Ahhhh deffo need to get my paws on some Origins spot remover pads they sound amazing! xo

    Holy crap that Eve Lom serum is expensive! Don’t think I could ever fork over that much cash for a serum!

    REN products are lovely though, some are pricey but for the most part are affordable if you have a bit of spare cash lying around.

  • I really want to try the REN concentrate, I’ve used a couple of their masks upon your recommendation and I love them!xx

  • I really need some new skin care products, I think I might purchase some of these!!

  • It’s like you own a spa 😉

  • Ugh I hate when you post about your skincare…. as I immediately go out and buy it all!!!! Not sure I could justify the Eve Lom stuff without trying a sample or something but I’m glad you’ve found stuff that works for you! xx

  • great picks! i do think with skincare you need to splash out, you do only get one face after all!

  • I love the look of all of these products! I am also a fan of balm-like clensers – I really prefer something that doesn’t foam up. I have never come across Eve Lom where I live, but after hearing about it so much it is making me really want to try some of their products out!

  • Oo, may need to try the blemish pads!

  • Really wanna try the origins spot remover! xxxx

  • I’m intrigued by the REN product; definitely adding to the never ending list!

  • I love the Origins spot remover pads! So want to try some of the REN stuff though 🙂 You give great skincare advice! x

  • I havn’t been impressed with REN so far, but maybe i’ll have to try this!

  • I just picked up the liquid gold and I love it but ren are my favourite skin care brand so I may have to try their version…my skin has expensive (and fickle) taste too! x

  • ah ah ah you just made me spend money I shouldnt spend! 😀

  • I think expensive, but at the same time I would like to buy them!



  • I really want to try the Origins Blemish Remover Pads, my skin has suddenly become prone to blemishes recently and it’s driving me mad! I’m also interested in trying a cleansing balm, as I haven’t yet.
    Have a lovely weekend 🙂

  • Does anyone know the best place to get Origins products in (or shipped to) Australia? The spot remover pads aren’t on eBay (bugger!) and the website deosn’t ship here!
