I’m really enjoying putting together these ‘5 Best…’ blog posts. I love trying new skincare and finding things that my skin not only tolerates, but truly loves. And if you find something that’s a total bargain as well, that’s just the icing on the cake! I’d love to hear your recommendations, so once you’ve read about my picks of the 5 best budget face masks for sensitive skin, please leave a comment with your faves below! I love trying your recommendations and I hope you all find new favourites in the posts and comments.

It feels so strange to talk about December ’16 as it feels like a million years ago! But here is my (belated) Skincare Shake Up December edition. You know how this goes, so let’s just get going before I waffle even more than usual!

Over the years I have really tried to get into supplements. I have friends who absolutely swear by various tablets try to get me on board but for some reason it’s just never stuck. It might be that I’m just not great at taking tablets, and also I have a terrible memory and no real set morning routine so all of my best intentions often fall by the wayside. However, for the past 6 weeks I’ve been trying out this supplement: have a peek at my Silidyn Rejuvenate review below…

Party season is truly over: I never want to look at another Quality Street ever again, I can’t face the thought of any more alcohol, and it’s really flipping cold. After the OTT glamour of the festive season – all gaudy golds, rich luxurious reds and cosy greens –  I feel like I need a bit of a colour palette cleanser before I get into the pretty bright pastels of spring/summer. If you’re the same then you will be as enamoured with the Essie Gel Couture Ballet Nudes collection as I am.

P.S. There’s a chance to win two of the shades at the bottom of this blog post…!

So far in my ‘5 Best…’ series we’ve covered cleansers and moisturisers, so next up is one of the most exciting posts in the series: 5 best budget exfoliators. I can hear you laughing at the back, and yes I’m aware that exfoliators don’t *sound* that exciting but hear me out! If you don’t currently use one, or use it sporadically, then I can guarantee that when used regularly it can transform the skin. A good exfoliator makes you look healthier, less tired, helps with blemishes and, as a result, make up sits better on the skin. I have a lot to say about this topic so grab a cuppa and a biscuit!

This year has felt about 6 years long. So much has happened, both close to home and all over the world and I’ll be honest, I’ll be happy to see the back of 2016. But for every awful thing that happened this year, there are lots of happy things to commemorate and celebrate. So here is my 2016 in review!

I wrote this weeks ago and convinced myself I’d published it. I have Christmas madness, clearly. Anyway, here’s my belated Skincare Shake Up November 16! This month we have some products that have snuck into my all-time-favourites already, a few products that are good standard products but nothing to write home about, and one product that disappointed me. INTRIGUE. Let’s do this! Don’t forget to head to the comments to tell me the skincare you are relying on at the moment, you know how I love to be enabled…
