SKIN FOR SPRING
If you've been reading my blog since the start of winter, you may remember my post on the 'Skincare Revamp'. A lot of you enjoyed that edit, so here I am as spring dawns with another set of products that I hope to use more this season.
The most recent purchase is the much coveted Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. I've been using this for a week or so now, and have very much enjoyed having it in my routine as a morning cleanse or the first makeup remove of a two step duo. It says no rinsing, but I always do. If it's strong enough to take off my makeup, I'm not sure I'd want it stewing on my face under my moisturiser... anyone else do that?
I'm sure we've all heard rave reviews on the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask, but now I'm looking for a lighter alternative in the offering of the 10 Minute Mask instead. I've used this a couple of times, but I cannot wait to apply it regularly as a shot of moisture twice a week, whilst the flowers bloom and the rabbits hop in the golden fields. How poetic of me haha.
Lush - an old favourite of a store. I've been reaching for exfoliating toners recently, but there's nothing more refreshing than a facial spritz of the Breath of Fresh Air Toner Water. It's been abandoned, so I think I need to show it a little more daylight.
Lastly, a moisturiser in the form of the Solutions Hydra Beyond Day Cream. It smells amazing, but isn't heavyweight enough at the moment to use on my dry skin. Hang in there little blue tub - I'll be putting you to good use as soon as spring rolls in.
