New Skincare Routine

New is the wrong word.... regular is the aim!

In addition to the diet that started yesterday I'm also trying to improve my skincare routine


I've been using Liz Earle products on and off for the past couple of years but not regularly enough.


You may have seen the range on QVC which is how I was introduced and it even has a mention in The Thrift Book


I have to say the pump dispenser for the Cleanse and Polish product is thrifty, dispensing in 1 pump the amount you need per cleanse to not waste or overuse

I always receive compliments on my skin if I've been using the products so it's a wonder I don't use it more often and when I run out I get to visit Browns

What skincare routine do you have?

My adopted mom got me some Chanel one year for my birthday. It is wonderful stuff, but soooo expensive to replace! No wonder I don't have a "routine"! LOL! I need one...my skin is crying out for help!

The Liz Earle range. I stopped using it in the summer because I took some medication and only superstrength stuff from the doctors worked. So I shall be back on the Liz Earle stuff next week after my facial. I use cleanse and polish followed by Clarins beauty flash balm. Oh and I swear by Mac makeup, it's the only stuff the has ever given me a spot.

Oh and just thought another QVC fave of mine is Smashbox. My friend used to buy me their make up in America but now I can get it via QVC over here and it is blimmin' amazing, it makes my skin look flawless - I really need to buy some more as I have run out, so not flawless anymore!

Skin routine ~ eek, you know I barely have one, clean with a facial scrub/cleanser such as St Ives and then tone (although I've only just started this!!!) and barely moisturise, although I do in the summer with a spf when I don't wear foundation.
I think I am just one of those horrible people lucky to have good genes as my mum (who is 68) always gets asked about what moisuriser etc. she uses (people actually stop her in the street!) and she actually doesn't and always forgets to take her makeup off before bed!
People always think we are both a lot younger than we actually are too, hideously lucky I know!

I'm so crap with this kinda thing... I don't have a routine.. I use a body shop facial wash everyday & that's it!!! I do think it's in the genes because people often think I'm 10 years younger then I'm... & I drink & smoke!!! I guess I'm just lucky ... thankfully!! :)

Happy New Year....Boy do I ever need a face routine. I am getting a much needed facial on Saturday....can't wait.

I had a lot of catching up to do on your blog...I wish had a Cath Kidston bag.

I heard they were making a US site...so we do not have to pay the $50 shipping!!!! I can't wait.

Talk to you soon~Sheri

Hello, hope you've had a good day! Aaarrgh skincare routine...mine is forever changing and never helping! I am not loyal to any brand and constantly trying new stuff but not for long enough, my skin is either really shiny or really dry never in between - I have no idea why! And I really must drink more water as MelMel says...and eating healthily of course! x

LittleGem said...

Ooh just commented at the same time! I know the swaps I have recieved are so lovely I am really lucky - but always forget to photograph what I make!

Gosh, I am so with you on the dieting and improving one's skincare routine. I've used Mary Kay in the past, and it was really good for my skin. I've heard removing make-up at the end of the day is essential to good young-looking skin...
I love your new glasses, and the necklace from your parents is so gorgeous!!

Liz Earle!! We have this in common also victoria! My mum uses the hand repair on a constant basis, I sometimes use the cleanse and polish, I love the muslin cloth that sometimes comes with the set...skin sooooo smooth! Enjoy using the products, we are also QVC fans, dont ya just love it! Yes def do go see see Twilight if you get chance, I think you may like it, even without reading the books,...

I used to use Clinique 3 step ... but in an attempt to cut down my spending I started using Boots No 7 ... then for Christmas my mum treated me to some lovely Clarins stuff ... I just LOVE the melting gel and beauty flash balm! My lovely mum also got me some fab Benefit make-up too ... all stuff that I probably won't be able to afford to replace!! :)
