    I have to say I'm getting on really well with the No7 Glycolic Peel Kit, my skin looks a lot better and the mammoth pores on my nose no longer act as craters for foundation! :rotfl:Still only 3 treatments in with 5 treatments to go, the first made spots appear but I reckon they were under the surface waiting to come out and the peel just accellerated the process!

    I have developed a stye in my left eye so I've chucked out my current mascaras and eyeliners just in case.

    One UU this morning:

    A. Florence Hydration Booster Serum 10ml WDBA. This was lovely. It helps keep my skin hydrated all day. I love to use this on a morning and follow it up with a mist and the Hada Labo Lotion Light. My face feels very hydrated when I do this. I've been trying to find a serum that has Vitamin C in it but not Ascorbic Acid which is in most Vitamin C serums as my skin doesn't agree with it. This one has a more stable form of Vitamin C in it, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, which I've been getting on a lot better with. Definitely recommend it if you're looking for a hydration serum. It's not cheap, it's £32 for 30ml but I would pay that to support this independent brand. I've got a sample size of this to use next.

    I've got a few things that should be finished in a few days. I've nearly finished a Lush soap, which are always a LHJ, haha. I think I may have to get a different shampoo and conditioner though. The Charles Worthington Shampoo and Conditioner are irritating my scalp a bit. Hm.

    I've officially given myself a 'pass' this month I think, I feel really concerned about my 'look' on my wedding day and have overbought products, the last of which I will post tonight as I think I've FINALLY nailed how I want to be on the day! There may be a couple more INs as I finalise things, but probably only from my Avon rep stash so pennies' worth, maybe an eyeliner or something!


    After the wedding I will be committing to this properly, in the meantime please don't think I'm taking the p1$$ buying all this stuff, I'm just so anxious and want to look my best!

    Such a good shower gel, I must look into this option.

    Yep - there are number of zero waste shops opened around the country. Hopefully, there is one near where you are. I have an Original Source bottle I use for this purpose - cost me around £2 to fill it. So not a huge difference and I do like Faith in Nature products.

    3 UUs today/tonight -
    Gucci Bamboo 30 ml - love this, have another one in stash
    Jimmy Choo - Flash 30 ml - love this, they discontinued i believe but would buy again if i can find it
    Pixi Retinol Tonic - have another one in stash. I think it is ok, not sure if it makes a big difference.
    £2020 in 2020 / £1678.62

    uu


    Sally Hansen Insta Dry Top Coat - I'm not sure if I already posted about this. It is pretty good and dries quickly so WMBA.


    I have another topcoat and a base coat which are almost done too, having to tip the bottle about to get the brush loaded.


    Gave my last Laura Mercier Foundation Primer to DD, I don't use primer that much but she does so it saves us buying another product. She also took my Pixi Primer, can't remember the name but it is very glowy (shiny) and doesn't set which I think a primer should plus the pump is rubbish on the packaging - I think it is in a plastic tube now which is worse for the environment than the glass bottle - WNBA.

    One UU from last night:

    Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream 3ml sample WB as a full size. This is a lovely cream, very soothing.

    I'm wanting to get my stash to a smaller size, and hopefully just buy things I know I love. And only buy new things after I've done my research on the product and whether it would be any good for my skin. Currently got 100 items in my stash, let's see how many products I can finish this month.

    One UU this morning:

    Sisley Cleansing Milk with Sage 5ml sample WPB but I doubt it. This was very nice. Very gentle and a good cleanser. But the full size is £73.50 for 250ml :eek:

    How much?! You’d have to have gold brains to spend that on a cleanser!
