Hey girls, did we all have a nice bank holiday weekend? Darren ♥ and I done some major relaxing! Trackie bottoms, sofa, Ultimate Big Brother, X factor, DVD’s and munchies. Our kinda weekend!
Back to the post. I’ve had a bit of bloggers block the last week or so. Over the weekend I had a look around the flat and found I had a good 4-5 posts to share with you, first up is my skincare products.
Left to right: Dream Cream, Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-in-1, Bio Oil, Witch Face Scrub, Nivea Soft, Dermalogica Genlte Cream Exfoliant, Chanel Hydramax Cream for Dry Skin, Vaseline Light Refreshing Body Lotion and Nivea Q10 Anti-wrinkle Cream.

I have only just discovered this beauty through the blogging world and I have to say it is a really lovely cream. Read my full review on it HERE
Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-in-1
I bought this after watching one of Laura’s (lollipop26) videos on You Tube. I use it daily and my skin has never been better.
Wicth Exfoliating Face Wash
I was using this everyday before the above but found it is a little but too harsh for my skin. I have very dry skin on my face and this just didn’t help things at all. Darren ♥ however is fond of it!

My good ol’ Mum ♥ got me onto this stuff, we used to use Nivea cream in a dark blue bottle with a white lid, it had a really strong smell about it and felt quite tacky on the skin. Mum ♥ changed to this, I tried it and have loved it ever since. It absorbs into the skin lovely and has a really fresh smell about it.
Vasline Light Refreshing Body Lotion
I have to moisturise after every bath or shower otherwise my skins goes a bit dry and flakey, it feels tight and just generally unhappy. This body lotion is light and fresh, non heavy/tacky and the big bottle lasts ages. A little goes a long way too.
Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant
After watching one of Lisa Eldridges YT videos about skincare products and her do's and dont's regarding your skin, I made some heavy hints to my sister for my birthday present in April and guess what I got it! I only use this once a week as a treat for my skin. Dermalogica products are quite pricey and I find this routine works well for me.

Nivea Anti-wrinkle Cream Q10
I bought this to help fight the wrinkles! I’m getting on a bit now and I’ve noticed fine lines and blemishes appearing. I use it most days, it also has an SPF 15 in it which it vital these days for protection against the suns harmful rays. I wish I started using anti-wrinkle cream years ago! Every little helps so the advert says.
This is another must have product, it really does do what it says on the tin. Before Darren ♥ and I went on holiday in June I applied this most nights to the ever growing scattering of stretch marks I have. Mainly on my breasticles and thighs, this stuff helps to reduce the scars so they don’t show up so much. I also use this as a cuticle oil at night.
Chanel Hydramax Cream for Dry Skin
For my birthday in April, I went to Debenhams and bought Chanel foundation (review to follow). The Chanel assistant noticed I had dry skin on my face and gave me this little sample tube to try of an evening before going to bed and I have to say it really made a difference to my skin. It was quite oily so not a product for during the day. This was only a sample tube and as you can see from the picture I cut the top off it to get every last bit of the product out. I’ve checked on Debenhams website and the full pot of cream (50g) is £46. From just that little sample tube I got 8 uses out of it so I think £46 is quite reasonable. One day……………one day it will be mine!! Muuhahahahahahaaaaa! Lol
Do any of you beauties use the same products as me? Do any of you know a good night cream for dry skin for under a tenner?
Leave me a comment I’d love to know
Lots of love Stacey x x x
