Skin Care Diary // June 2015

Throughout each month, I'll be keeping a skin care diary and jotting down what I use on a daily basis. At the end of the month, I'll tally up what has been used the most and share the products with you. I have combination skin that can change between being extremely dry, spot prone, oily and sensitive as well as having eczema flare ups.

My skin routine has been a bit all over the place this month. I haven't stuck with a proper routine and instead have been swapping and changing different products, buying new moisturisers and trying new face sprays. My skin likes a routine and it always looks it's best when I use the same products every day. I've picked out the products I've used the most for this post but there are others I have been using as well such as a couple of products from Pai, a Clinique moisturiser, La Roche-Posay Serozinc and Indeed Labs Hydraluron. I'm going to try and make an effort in July to stick with these five products until I finish them.

Favourites | June 2015

Korres Fig Showergel | £8 // This shower gel is summer in a bottle. It smells incredible and I always make sure I have a bottle, or two, in my bathroom cabinet.

Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray | £21 // After watching the two in the bathroom with Caroline Hirons videos I'd made myself a shopping list of things I wanted to try and this was one of them. It was in the sale on Feel Unique so I made a small order with a few other things. This is the hydrating toner step in my skin care routine although it's nice to spray throughout the day if it's particularly hot out. It keeps my skin hydrated and helps to calm my skin down as well.

John Masters Organics Scalp Deep Scalp Purifying Serum | £23 // I'm nearly at the end of this bottle so I'm going to have to make an order for another one soon so I'm not without it for very long. I use this when my scalp is feeling dry and itchy, which it has a lot this past month, and it works wonders. It almost acts like a dry shampoo in a way as when it sinks in, my hair feels and looks cleaner and less greasy. You can apply a small amount and go about your day, but I prefer to use it as a treatment so I apply a more generous amount and then wash out as normal after a couple of hours. My scalp always feels a lot better after I use this.

Burberry Military Red Lipstick | £25 // This tiny Burberry lipstick was part of a gift with purchases and it has to be the cutest thing in my collection. I have totally fallen in love with the colour which is rare for me as normally red lipsticks don't suit me. The red in my hair just seems to clash with every other red I've tried so far apart from this one. I've already bought the full size and can see myself using a repurchasing this for a very long time.

Who The Shrek Are You?

Who The Shrek Are You? isn't a polish I'd wear on a daily basis, but it's a fun colour to have in my collection. It's, obviously, part of the Shrek Collection brought out in 2010 along with five other shades. I only have two of them though and as much as I would like to have them all in my collection, especially the two pastels, I don't really fancy paying more than £10 for them.

As you'd expect from a nail polish of this colour, the formula isn't great. It's thin and needs at least three coats to become opaque. Luckily it isn't too streaky so the layers go on top of each other nicely. Despite being five years old, the formula of this polish hasn't changed. It does separate if left unused for a while but nothing a slight shake won't fix.
