My Dry Skin Saviours (Part I) - Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cream & Origins Make A Difference Plus + Treatment

With the onset of such cold weather combined with the use of my Retin-A cream, my skin has been so dehydrated and dry. If you're fairly new to my blog, I normally have oily skin. I still do. So you may be thinking "How can you have oily and dehydrated/dry skin at the same time?" Well, my skin is quite dry and flaky in the mornings, making foundation application an absolute nightmare. By the afternoon, my skin is an oily mess. This tells me that my skin is dehydrated and to combat this dryness, the oil glands go into hyperdrive and produce a heap of oil to try balance out moisture levels, which explains why my face resembles McDonald's deep fryer in the afternoon.

Brand Focus: MUD

 There's no easy way for me to say this... I'm a brand snob. I tend to spend money on more expensive brands (high street to luxury) because I think they are better quality than drugstore/cheaper brands. But today, I'm going to eat my words. MUD (Make-Up Design) is a drugstore brand that is perfect for those on a budget. I was extremely surprised at the quality of some of these MUD products I've been putting to test over the past few weeks.

Empties: May 2015

I can't believe we're near the half way mark of 2015 already! I've been quite pleased with myself for finishing another foundation. I feel like celebrating by purchasing another (not that I need one) :P
