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!

It’s time for my Skincare Shake Up October 2016! If you know me, you’ll know I love my skincare. Nothing pleases me more than finding a new product that makes my skin feel happy and comfortable without aggravating my rosacea. There’s been a bit of a gap in the Skincare Shake Ups but I’m back, and this is a beefy one so get comfy…

If anything is guaranteed to get me excited, it’s skincare. I used to hate anything to do with skin because my rosacea would flare up at the drop of a hat. I was terrified and so I just used the same products over and over and tried to ignore the reactions, as I felt it was better the devil you know. I have now reached a point where I know my skin a lot better and actually look forward trying new products as I am so excited to find the next thing my skin loves. Do you want to hear all of the products I’ve discovered in my July Skincare Shake Up?

B.Skincare The Ultimate Capsule Skincare Collection RosaceaReview

A little while ago I was having a conversation with my husband about my vast skincare collection. He is a very neat person who likes things tidy and minimalistic. I am a hoarder who loves to surround myself with things. A match made in heaven…! As I have rosacea and therefore very temperamental skin, I have accumulated a lot of skincare. I have my morning routine which has at least 5 steps and my evening routine which has at least 6. And that’s when my skin is behaving! I have lotions and potions that I swap in and out if my dermatitis is playing up… ones for when my flare ups are making my face so warm I feel like I might spontaneously combust… others for if I have papules/pustules…the list goes on.

So when this conversation turned towards what I would do without these products, you can forgive me if I turned a bit pale (as pale as you can get under a big red rosacea face). What would I do if we were burgled by a skincare obsessive? Or if I went on holiday and an incompetent baggage handler lost my luggage? Or if there was a really, really localised asteroid shower that only impacted my dressing table? I felt a bit sick. But it got me thinking (*put on your best Carrie from SATC voice here*), could I find a capsule skincare collection that not only would work with my atypical skin but would also not require a bank loan to acquire?
