Morning Cleanse

Recently I've changed up my morning cleanser to the Kiehls Ultra Facial Cleanser which I absolutely love.

I was definitely attracted to it for it's promise of 'cleanses without over drying..'. There is nothing I hate more than cleansers that leave my skin feeling dry and lacklustre.

Although it does mention the word 'foaming', which for me is a worry as I've always found foaming cleansers to be very drying and misleading, it's really gentle on the face. I'd definitely recommend this if you find your skin to be quite sensitive and irritated by many cleansers as it's not overly perfumed and really soothing. Another added bonus is that you don't have to break the bank either, for a large 150ml tube it's just £15!

I apply a small amount to my damp skin (although it works well if your face is dry also) and massage all over in a circular motion. I then use a hot cloth or flannel to rinse and remove any residue, I find this also gives it a little extra exfoliation.

What are your favourite cleansers? Do you have a different routine for morning and evening? Please leave me a comment below....

Bye Bye Bags..

There is no better cure for eye bags than a good nights sleep but when that isn't always possible I look no further than my Estee Lauder, Double Wear, Stay in Place, High Cover Concealer (bit of a mouthful) in 3C Medium.

When my eyebags are particularly bad I tend to layer up my concealer by applying a generous amount to the whole eye area before applying my double wear foundation (2N1) , and finally topping up with a further small amount of concealer around the dark circles.

To achieve a highlighted affect I will then apply some touche' eclat or wake me up concealer before finally seeling with a light touch of powder.

What are your favourite concealers? How do you banish the bags? Please leave me comments below....
