La Roche Posay Winter Skincare

Is there anything worse than dry, uncomfortable and troublesome skin as soon as the cold weather hits? 

If you find your skin breaks out a lot in cold weather, this could actually be down to dryness, not oily skin. When your skin is dry it starts over-producing oil to try and compensate, so you can be left with spots or greasy skin. 

La Roche Posay has recently launched some new skincare products and added to their best-selling ranges, which will help combat any skin troubles.

Toleriane Ultra Overnight Care is an overnight moisturiser for particularly sensitive or allergy-prone skin. I have been using it daily for months and LOVE it. It is designed to hydrate and reduce skin sensitive overnight - which is great for skin that is prone to dryness, tightness, redness or itchiness. Not only does it work wonders in the winter when my skin is dry, but in summer I can often get bad hayfever and my skin becomes uncomfortable so I can't wait to use it then too. (£17.50)

La Roche Posay has also added to its Effaclar range, which is suited to oily and blemish prone skin... you may have heard of Effaclar Duo, which is a great blemish treatment. Effaclar Duo [+] Unifiant is a spot treatment that corrects and hydrates skin for clearer skin in four weeks. This new take on the product is tinted so also provides coverage and works as a great base. Despite being designed for younger and blemish-prone skin it is also suitable for sensitive skin so won't dry it out too much.

The new Effaclar Purifying Clay Mask is also a great product for oily skin. It works to unclog pores, control shine and provide a deep cleanse to remove impurities. The clay dries on the skin and absorbs any sebum and impurities as well as preventing blackheads. As my skin is very dry and luckily I haven't had too many breakouts recently I find this is a little strong for my skin, however, I will be using it as a spot treatment in future.

MissGuided Babe Power Perfume

Very rarely do I come across a perfume I truly love and can wear everyday. I find most of the ones I try are often too heavy and empowering and I end up with a headache after wearing them.

That was until MissGuided launched its debut perfume, BABE POWER, last year. I’m often a little wary of shops launching their own scents, as they aren’t your “traditional” perfume brand, but was so surprised when I came across this one…

What I Got For Christmas 2017

Merry Christmas! I hope you've all had a lovely and relaxing few days full of food & drink. I'm going to keep this blog post short and sweet as I've got a few posts planned on my reflections on 2017 and all my plans for 2018, but for now I love being nosy and seeing what everyone got for Christmas (if you've done a blog post then please leave me a link!) so I thought I'd share my gifts with you too.

My family don't really go mad on presents and usually give me money so I can buy things for myself, and this year I bought quite a lot in the sales so I have included that below too...
