And I'm back today with a massive beauty post. I'm a simple soul when it comes to beauty - my make up bag consists of about 8 items and my morning/night routine has 3 items. But I do invest in almost every item as I don't think you can get away with less expensive products on 40+ skin.
My favourite beauty posts to read on other blogs are the empties ones....because you really must love something if you've finished it to the end and even more so, if you've re-purchased.
March for me was an expensive one as both my moisturisers and my foundation ran out. Thankfully at opposite ends of the month. Moisturisers first and I've raved about Epionce products on this blog before...
Epionce Renewal Facial Cream and Epionce Lytic TX - not cheap but cheaper than botox and both items last me more than 3 months each time.
I use the Lytic with the cream at night and in the morning, I just use the cream. Hand on heart - Epionce has transformed my skin. The best way I can describe my skin right now is happy. A calm has descended and I don't get hormonal breakouts or dry patches anymore. The whole botanical and chemical free approach to their formulation is undoubtedly the reason.
But one big counter product I can't resist is perfume. Until recently, it had to be Jo Malone. I think once you've fallen in love with a JM scent, it's hard to find another brand that matches it. But during recent trips away, I've been trying out the Tom Ford range. I couldn't quite make up my mind which one I preferred and given they're quite expensive, I wasn't going to be rushed into it. But a squirt on the way out and then another in Sephora made me sure that Grey Vetiver was the one for me. I held out until the flight home and managed to pick up a 50ml bottle in CDG airport.
Oh and seeing that we're on a beauty roll, here's what's in this month's Birchbox (which I keep forgetting to cancel...honest guv).
I promise I won't leave it so long until the next post - and it will be about shoes! Yay!
