Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant - Product of the Week

For the past couple of weeks my face has really taken a hit. Firstly I used some beautiful Eldora lashes for Halloween and was too lazy to get my Duo glue from my kit so used the Eldora glue instead. Big mistake have had an inchy, sore patch under and around my eye ever since that seems impossible to fix. It opened the floodgates for the change in temperature to make my skin incredibly dry and bumpy and to be honest my whole face has felt pretty awful for the past week.

Then I remembered my Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant and have used it a couple of times in the past five days and my skin has really taken a turn for the better which is a relief. An incredibly gentle exfoliator this has removed the dry, bumps from my forehead and chin and meant my moisturiser can actually mositurise my skin rather than sitting on top of it sadly unable to penetrate. I'm not a huge fan of Dermalogica but I recommend you try this.

Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick - Product of the Week

Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick
Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Rose
Is it a bit weird to have two Hourglass products on consecutive weeks? If it is then I don't care, it's my blog and I love them both and have been using them constantly since I bought them in New York. Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick has the best staying power of any lipstick I've tried without a doubt and the colours are so beautiful I found it quite difficult to limit myself to one, which I had to, these products aren't cheap even though I got mine in New York where they are a bit more manageable for the purse. I ended up getting Rose which is a beautiful pink that suits me for every day, unlike Ballet which was the colour I originally wanted to get this is a browner pink so more suitable to have in your handbag for any occasion, it goes with whatever you are wearing and whatever the situation. If money was no object I would have Ballet, Muse, Edition and Riviera too. When checking these out online be aware that they don't really look like any of the swatches I've seen.
