The Face

This first week back from uni has come and gone so quickly. All I’ve managed to do this week is type up part of an essay, working a couple of days to earn some cash and hanging out with my sisters. I can’t wait to catch up with my friends tomorrow seeing as we’re all finally back in town. Right on to the main topic of this post! I’m sure everyone has some sort of face routine and I have been using Clinique’s 3 step for the last 6 months which consists of face wash, toner and moisturiser. It was great at the start and really helped my oily skin. However it’s only been recently when I realised just how drying it was on my skin and now I only allow myself to use the stuff at night and only very sparingly and I’ve cut out the toner too. The reason was because my skin was becoming quite dry and tiny little red bumps appeared on my cheeks. So after a few days of not following the routine they’ve all gone and my mom has commented how nice my skin looks since being at home. Of course, thats also when she told me that she’s never got on with Clinique face washes, and I don’t know why she never bothered to mention it to me before. Typical huh? It’s like the time I went to Paris and I came back and my mom casually mentioned that she had been before when she was younger.
Anyway, I thought I would show you my latest buy and it’s MAC mineralised skin finish natural in Medium plus. It’s a powder and I have been using it as a very light foundation. It’s ace and my skin seems to love it. Mineralised make up is meant to be better for you anyway as it doesn’t clog your pores etc. Although I have also heard horror stories where people have broken out really badly after using it. For the moment I really love it, and I’ve never found a colour that looks so perfect against my skin so I’m really pleased with the product! So many of my posts have been about make up lately but I find make up is just another canvas to express myself! I do need a new dress though…they are like my wardrobe staple, can’t have too many!
