Skincare Love


I’ve always been complimented on my skin, and I’m always surprised by it.  Partly because I always think I look haggard, but partly because even though I love skin care,  I’m a little bit lazy.

I’m not lazy when it comes to product selection, In fact I’m a bit of a tart when it comes to flitting.  Whilst I’ve always been pretty loyal to my favourite brands, especially when it comes to Skincare and Foundation, our relationships only tend to last a year or so and then something happens which makes me move onto somebody else.  I guess that’s another reason I cancelled my Glossybox.  I felt like I was cheating on my favourite brand.

It was around Christmas time when I discovered that the spots – I’d  never had proper spots until that month when I was 29 – were down to the fact that my chin and the Elemis Skincare range had decided to fall out.  I went from glowing skin to spotty.  I’d initially put it down a to variety of reasons including stress and stuffing ones face (and perhaps not enough water – you can never drink too much water to help your skin), but when I ran out of the cleanser before I’d got ’round to replacing it (don’t you hate it when that happens?), I stopped using it and the spots vanished.

Before Elemis I’d been a loyal user of Clinque, Clarins, Shisedo, Clarins, Simple and now my hero the b.right radiant skincare range by Benefit.



I love it. It doesn’t smell of anything, it doesn’t feel harsh, the eye gel is fab, and it just ROCKS.  I can also say, having a skin which leans towards being dry, the emulsion is amazing.

It’s also helped me get over my excuses, when it comes to a lazy routine. In the morning I’m fine.  Every morning I’ll go through the motions, I even enjoy it, feel fresh and invigorated for the day, but it’s bedtime I have the problem.  I try so so hard to take my make up off before bed, but I’m rubbish.  I don’t like to do it until after dinner for some reason, I guess in case the door goes and I don’t want the neighbours to see JUST HOW BAD I LOOK.    Then I just collapse into bed.  Plus, I was convinced it actually used to make my skin feel greasy.  However, these days I have no such excuse, I just wake up with soft feeling skin.

Price wise, well personally I say “You can’t put a prize on feeling good about yourself” However, Mr Aimee has a different opinion.  Being naturally gorgeous (git) he has happily suggested the old “soap and water” method many a time, only to be met with a scowl which cannot be good for my frown lines.

Therefore, if I’m getting away with spending on it (no no no I DON’T hide it amongst the nappy pricing in my Boots on-line shop that would be WRONG), it’s not too bad value for money.  At about £16.50 for the Cleanser, £23.50 for Toning Lotion and Eye cream, and £26.50 for moisturiser I’d say it flits around the Clarins mark probably.

Plus.  The packaging matches my bathroom.  Just saying.
