Better late than never I suppose. I have been so busy working on a new contract that I have had no time or energy to write. But it’s paid work and I am grateful for it.

So, last month I polished off another bottle of Mary Kay’s eye make up remover. Deja vu.

And a tube of Scholl’s dry skin daily moisturiser which is thick enough to keep feet smooth with regular use, and not so thick that it leaves a greasy film.

Another favourite that has come to an end is my Decléor aroma cleanse 3-in-1 hydra-radiance smoothing & cleansing mousse (a mouthful!). This old reliable doesn’t dry my skin out and is great in the shower. I use it occasionally to take off make up at the end of the day, although it is my morning cleanser.

I’ve used the Groovy food company’s organic omega cool oil (another mouthful) on salad’s and taken it by the spoonful whenever I haven’t been able to eat oily fish or nuts & seeds. I prefer it to taking capsules but haven’t replaced the liquid version yet as I have my eye on UDO’s choice ultimate oil blend.

Malin + Goetz’s gentle neroli shampoo is also a regular in my bathroom. It’s been great at keeping my hair from getting too dry and my scalp from getting too itchy.

This tiddly tube of Glamglow’s supermud clearing treatment gave me 4 applications in all, but I am not convinced that it is the face mask for me. It didn’t do enough to warrant the expensive price tag.

Thea skincare’s coconut & jojoba hand cream was a freebie given to me to try out. I like it but the ingredients list cannot be found online or in enough detail on the tub, which is necessary if you are claiming ‘organic enriched skincare’. Having said that, it did a great job of keeping hands moisturised without being too greasy.

And finally, another tube of NARS radiant creamy concealer gets finished. I keep going back for more, and think I will for some time to come. I have my eye on the Amazing cosmetics’ amazing concealer but only to add to the repertoire as opposed to replace anything.

    I’m quite a fan of the glamglow range some more than others (really like supermud clearing treatment) and the Malin + Goetz shampoo sounds nice x

      Hi. I’m yet to try out more from glamglow. Their original mask is meant to be quite good isn’t it?
