Some of you may have noticed that there was no Skincare Shake Up post last month. I ended up extending my holiday in France at the last minute and by the time I got back into London I had missed the beginning of the month change over. I didn’t want to try out products for less than a month because I like to give things a proper test, so I just started my new skincare routine when I got home and tried it out for half of July and all of August instead. And here is that routine in full…
We’re halfway through the year and I’m not entirely sure how that’s happened. But a new month means a new Skincare Shake Up – here is my full skincare routine for June, including some new goodies that I think you need to know about along with some favourites you may have heard of already.
It’s the end of the month which means it’s time for my Skincare Shake Up May ’17 edition! There are some clear winners this month, along with some clear no-no products. Ahhh the perils of being a beauty blogger with sensitive skin! As always, it’s a long one so let’s strap in and get going.
April has been a strange month for me and my skin. I probably hit every single one of my triggers: Stress? Check! (appearing on TV with no make up on: absolutely terrifying) Warm weather? Check! Cold weather? Check! (seriously, spring, get it together) Indulged in too much alcohol? Oh, that’s a big check. So the products featuring in this Skincare Shake Up April 17 edition really had their work cut out for them!
A few weeks ago I posted about my finding skincare favourites challenge with Boots UK (read it HERE). In that post I gave a little introduction to my skin and its issues – primarily rosacea and therefore ridiculously sensitive skin – and also showed you the products I would be trying out. I’ve been doing this challenge for about three weeks now, but many of these products are trusted skincare favourites of mine, ones that crop up in so many of my recommendations and ‘favourites’ posts, so you could say this is a bit of a skincare ‘dream team’!

Some people love wandering around the shoe section in Selfridges. Some are happiest in Paperchase (which I *totally* get, that place is dreamy). For me, I could waste hours in Boots. Whether it’s in person – swatching make up all the way up my arm – or online where I repeatedly fill my online basket full of my skincare wishlist after doing hours of research on all the new releases. The return of the 3 for 2 deal means you can find your skincare favourite with Boots UK – come and see what I’m trying out this month!

This month has been a tricky one for my skin. It got *really* cold in London and every time I leave the house my rosacea instantly kicks off! Add this to the fact that I think the person living below me is running a sauna from their living room (it’s the only possible explanation for the heat emanating through our floorboards…) my skin doesn’t know whether it’s coming or going. Old favourites and new discoveries galore: are you ready for Skincare Shake Up February 17?
It’s the beginning of February (stop it) so it’s time for my Skincare Shake Up January 17 edition! I have a very mixed bag this month with some winners and some products that just didn’t work for me. Strap in and prepare yourself for a lot of skincare…
