My No 1 Standout Skincare Product of the Year –

SkinCeuticals Blemish and Age Defense £75.00

I was prescribed this product after a facial with skincare expert Debbie Thomas. The results have genuinely taken me aback. For anyone who suffers with blocked pores, adult acne, any breakouts, or early signs of ageing – try this.

My No1 Standout Makeup Product of the Year –

Brow Genius by Anastasia £20.00

This is the best product that I’ve ever found for my eyebrows. I’ve used Anastasia’s products for years, and am delighted that they are finally stocked in the UK. Mix a small amount of gel with a few drops of the powder. I fill in gaps and extend the outer ends. Obsessed.

    My Paypal is burning right now with all my new purchases. It’s all your fault, you know it, but also a good way to start a year.

    Happy new year! xxx

    I just had a baby 10 days ago and through my pregnancy my skin got very dehydrated but thanks to clarins hydra quench serum and moisturiser it felt a lot better and continues to do so. Will continue using it.
