I was in two minds about doing a Skincare Shake Up for January. For most of the month I was in Japan, which means that I was relying on products that I’d already used. If you have sensitive or awkward skin, you will know that a holiday can cause all sorts of issues with your skin: flights, change in diet, the water (hard water is the devil!), disrupted sleep, temperature changes… it all adds up. So when I travel, I tend to stick with what I know.

Let me start with an apology – my Skincare Shake Up for December is a little bit late. In case you didn’t know, my blog was hacked over New Year. URGH. This would have been a faff and expensive to sort out at any time, but it happened while I was on holiday on the other side of the world… which made things so much more difficult! BUT, we are back up and running and so I’m finally getting to post all of the content I wanted to post while I was away. So please excuse the tardiness of this round up: here are the products that made up my skincare routine in December.

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…

It feels so strange to be writing my Friday Faves because I got back from my holiday on Wednesday and therefore today feels like Tuesday. Plus this weekend is a bank holiday weekend in the UK so I’ll be even more confused about what day it is! But anyway… this edition of Friday Faves is heavily influenced by my holiday: the beauty bits I used, the books I read, plus a bonus suggestion if – like me – you go all heart-eye-emoji over stationery!

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.
