Whist my symptoms on Roaccutane haven’t been too bad (I really can’t complain, it’s been an easy ride), I have had to get used to a sudden change in skin type. I used to have, I’m now realising, quite oily skin! My skin at present is very dry, not a slick of oil sits on my face. Thankfully, I’ve had two products on hand for some serious hydration. The Clinique Moisture Surge range has to be one of my favourites.…

I know this post will be of interest to a lot of you, so I’m going to be doing a month-by-month write up of my experience on Roaccutane. I’m going to be totally honest here, but I’m not going to advise anyone on whether or not they should take it.

It’s been awhile since I invested in new skincare, but with my skin having changed to a more dry, intensely parched type (thanks to Roaccutane!) it seemed like a bright idea to switch up my routine. I spied these two new This Works products whilst having a Net-a-Porter splurge, and I just loved the sound of them. Hydrating and brightening? Now we’re talking! The Light Time range works to revive and boost skin while you snooze, it’s an evening routine…

Fresh Party-Ready Skin.

14 December, 2015

I thought I’d share my failsafe pre-party skincare routine with you all this week. I’m a big fan prepping my skin before any big event, and so I’ve got this lineup pretty streamlined… I usually start with a good exfoliator; something gentle yet effective. Something to buff away impurities and prep my skin for the next steps in this routine, and at the moment I’m a big fan of the Estelle & Thild Biocleanse Radiance Micro Polish. This polishes and…
