8 Affordable Skincare Products That Work

I feel like I've really got my skincare down at the moment.  I bought lots of new products a few months ago and after testing them out, my skin having a bit of a freak out at first and then getting a good routine in order I feel like I've found some great products that work for my skin, are cruelty free and affordable!

Mario Badescu Rose Water

I use this as a toner to hydrate my skin every morning.  It's so refreshing and particularly good if you've had a heavy night!

Superdrug Optimum Brightening Cream

This is a black cream that I've spoken about before.  It's not too heavy so a good one for the day before makeup but it has brightening properties in it to keep your skin glowing.

Body Shop Cleansing Oil

This is the camomile one and is so good at removing makeup.  I use it every night to start off with and it even removes studdon mascara.

Nip & Fab Glycolic Scrub

I've started to incorporate glycolic acid into my everyday skincare and I feel like it's improved my skin the most.  This product I use 2-3 times per week.

Pixi Toner

This also has glycolic acid it in and I will use it most days when I am not using the Nib & Fab scrub.

Superdrug Vitamin E eye cream

Such a great little cream and super affordable.  The best eye cream I've tried so far.

Superdrug Vitamin E facial oil

Now that I am getting older I've started to use a facial oil every night which scared me at first as I thought I would really break out but it's so nice for my dry skin.

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Overnight Mask

This is another product with glycolic acid in it so I will only use when not using the others as too much freaks my skin out.  It's a really cooling gel that you leave on and wash off in the AM.

Do you know any affordable skincare products that really work?

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
