As you may know we've been having a pretty hard time recently and handling a sad husband, funeral arrangements and a teethy 9 month old mostly all located in a cottage that's in need of some serious work doesn't leave a lot of room for a luxurious skincare routine.
Luckily for me I remembered to pack the Jardins D'EDEN Heavenly Facial Neroli Elixir I had been sent to try out. This product has pretty much single-handedly got me through the past couple of weeks. If you (or your skin) don't like essential oils then this is not for you but it has really worked for me - my skin is completely smooth and hydrated. And although I didn't personally pay for it I would say this is worth it's steep £30 price tag - it's an oil, a little goes a long way this should last you a while.
The essential oils used include lavender to soothe and balance and Neroli which is rejuvenating for all skin types especially dry or mature skins. I have been applying it every evening before my moisturiser as, although I've always been removing my make-up with Bioderma, I haven't always had the time* to use my balm cleanser and/or a toner. I know that I usually have very dehydrated skin and at the moment, despite the stress and the intake of booze and bread and the lax skin regime I've come home with really healthy looking, moisturised skin.Thumbs up Jardins D'EDEN.

I've not had a lot of time to do my make-up recently and I've been feeling in a slightly darker mood. To reflect my mood and bring out my eye colour (dark green) I have been using a wash of Benefit's Creaseless Cream Shadow in Skinny Jeans which, although it looks like quite a dark, pewter grey can in fact be really lightly applied. Easy to use and a beautiful range of colours available - if you act quickly there's a sale on.

An oldie but a goodie. Staying at my father-in-law's cottage in Norfolk which can, at best, be described as rural. We've been here for ten days due to the illness and sadly death of my father-in-law. Although I'm a big fan of a proper skincare routine but when time is short and utilities are functional at least Bioderma gets all your make-up off, whatever you may do next, re-cleanse with a balm or just wash and moisturise.
