skin shopping


I've spent too much time this last few weeks browsing StrawberryNet and reading reviews on Makeup Alley - it's addictive to say the least!

I've tried this year to make more of an effort with my skincare routine. Being 26 and all, I'm starting to fret about the damage I've probably done as a youngster; forgetting to moisturise, wearing makeup to bed after coming home from a massive night on the town, and generally not taking great care of my body's biggest organ.

So. I've started mixing things up. A few of my latest purchases to help see me through the Winter, rehydrate my skin and undo some of the damage of the past:

Dermalogica: Skin refining masque
A skin-clarifying, texture-refining masque with oil-absorbing clays and purifying plant extracts to deep-cleanse the skin, helping to reduce oily-skin breakouts.


multi-active toner

Dermalogica: multi-active toner
An ultra-light facial spritz that refreshes and hydrates the skin while smoothing the surface. Helps condition skin to prepare for proper moisture absorption.


intensive moisture balance

Dermalogica: intensive moisture balance
An ultra-rich phytonutrient moisturizer designed to combat dry skin and reduce the signs of premature aging.

I've been using Clinique products for a while now, but have read so many great reviews about Dermalogica that I've decided to extend my routine and bring a few new babies into the fold! It's amazing how addictive beauty products can be! Let's hope these new products do as they say - and I'll be on my way to smooth-as-a-baby skin in no time!!

What skin care products do you swear by??

Ohh they look scrumptiously good for your skin. I use Mirenesse which is an online company that uses natural products.

ive been a big fan of clinique since I was about 14 when my mum introduced me - and haven't looked back! Now... I'm branching out a little thanks to a visit to Sephora in the US in janurary! and now thanks to a new job, im trying out a lot of Natio products.

Another natural winner: Trilogy. Made in NZ, this stuff has changed my life... (well, at least its changed my skin!) Myers & health food stores & some chemists sell it.
