Skincare Routine

Admittedly, in the past I have been rubbish at taking care of my skin. My mum introduced me to the idea of cleansing, toning and moisurising when I was quite young (roughly just starting high school) and I didn't really understand the necessity. As shameful as this is to admit, especially being the grand old age of 19, I have only in the last year started taking care of my skin. This is mainly because I've been blessed with relatively good skin (with the exception of far too many freckles and terrible undereye circles) so I didn't see why I should waste time out of my day cleansing it.

However, after one too many times leaving my makeup on after nights out, my skin began to rebel, in a rather massive way and I broke out big time. Thus, my 3 step skincare system was born...

Reviews to follow! :)


  1. i swear by the liz earle cleanser, but i dont use the muslin cloth as it irritates me. I used to use this toner, but its far too harsh for me (see a trend here, sensitive lady!) and the moisturiser is lovely. x

  2. I love the cleanser, its so delicate isn't it? :) x
