This year, largely due to my financial goals I’ve changed things up. I spend less money on everything (except maybe the allotment!) and the things I put on my face are no exception.
Some things have stayed. I was gifted with a bottle of Clarins Lotus Oil and some Dermalogica Microfoliant for Christmas, I’m still using both and honestly they are worth spending the money on if you have it because I haven’t found anything I like as much that works as well. At night I’m still using the Baby Bottom Butter from Waitrose to cleanse my face because it works and it doesn’t break the budget.
The new thing I have added to my routine is Simply Pure Hydrating Serum
I’m late to the party on this one. Sali Hughes raved about it in her Guardian column back in February but I hadn’t been able to get my hands on it until last month. It’s as good as she says and has done more for the wrinkles around my eyes than any eye cream I’ve tried. I also add a bit to my foundation which seems to help it take better.
It also helps the budget by costing £2.69 and often being on special offer. It’s another magic unicorn of skincare, cheap and effective.
