    A word of warning from an idiot (me): don't, as I did, swipe Nip and Fab toning pads all around your eye area and then go out in the sun without putting on any sunscreen. I did this last week and basically fried my eyelids :facepalm: Just getting over the stingy, puffy stage now, but they're still intensely itchy and a bit sore, even with repeated applications of my daughter's eczema cream.

    The newish blusher Galifornia from Benefit is ace, it also smells luscious.

    Got some of the Aldi alleged Liz Earle dupe Fez909. I've never used the Liz Earle but I didn't like the smell as much as my old favourite Soap and Glory Ultimelt, and I found it a bit drying on my dryish skin (on a very hot day) Might be better on oilier complexions. Better than some more expensive cleansers I've tried but if I'm going super cheap I prefer the Superdrug Vitamin E Oil cleanser.

    Eta. Can't remember what thread this was discussed in. Ah well, it's late and I've written it here now.

    My eyelids are still a bit fucked up and I haven't been able to wear make up for a while, so I decided to chuck out most of my make up and start again. Bought some Bare Minerals foundation and concealer at the weekend - it's great, gentle on the skin, good coverage, makes me look healthy.

    I've ditched my old makeup routine too and moved to a lovely Clinique moisture surge CC cream in a compact....it's factor 25 and is really light....just invisible on the skin. I'm very pale and find it hard to find a good colour match but this is perfect.


    Bought some benefit mascara and brow stuff.
    Sorted for Summer now. :)
