    Gave away 3 bottles of perfume to my friend at work today. L'occitane Violette and something other : I bought this, didn't like it and gave it to Emma and she has now decided that she does not like it. Jean Paul Gaultier Classique mini : we had one each. I've used mine up and am not that keen. L'Occitane Verbena mini : came as a GWP. Again, tried it before and not in love.

    Two UUs this evening:

    Superdrug Vitamin E Moisture Boost Serum 50ml WNBA. I couldn't use this on my face because of the fragrance. And it contains dimethicone which I'm avoiding. Glad it's gone.

    What is wrong with dimethicone if you could let me know please? I use this serum from time to time too but can't say i'm well educated on ingredients.

    Anything that ends in 'cone' is silicone which I believe can block the pores.


    No uu here but a few things are moving along nicely.

    Dimethicone is a silicone. There's no harm in using them, and if you skin doesn't react to them, then you're fine. But my skin seems to be breaking out a lot lately from using a product with Dimethicone in it accidentally. I'm just trying to avoid them to stop my breakouts.

    One UU this morning:

    The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Body Butter 50ml WMBA. This was nice but I'm glad to be able to start the Shea Body Butter. I've missed it.

    One IN today:

    Nivea Pearl and Beauty Deodorant 50ml

    I'm nearing the end of my current deodorant so this is ready for when I finish my current one.

    I have some hormonal acne that keeps flaring every now and then but i will keep an eye on products and see if it impacts me. Thanks!

    I normally only have a small hormonal breakout the week before, or the week of my period. I accidentally used something with it in for a week or two and I was confused why my chin was covered in spots. Re-read the ingredients list and bam, there it is.
