Whilst I was in The Body Shop grabbing my new moisturisers I spotted the Camomile Cleansing Butter (I’d call it a balm but whatever). I’m not quite sure how new this is but I’ve only seen a handful of reviews and they’ve all been good, so I picked it up as there was a 3 for 2 offer on.

I’m one for overpacking, I’m not even going to deny it. My mum was always one of those “better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it” mums. I think I may live like that in everyday life too ?. Even when I pack for a one night stay I’ve usually got at least 3 outfits ‘just incase‘.

The same goes for my makeup. But, what if I need it. As we’re planning to travel more this year I only need a set few things. You don’t need everything Helen. You can do without that 3rd eyeshadow pallette (an actual conversation I had with my husband). I’m trying to limit myself.

For so long I thought I had just straight up dry skin. I’ve tried all kinds of moisturisers that claim stuff that just doesn’t reciprocate onto my face. I began to live with the fact I had crazy dry patches and no blemishes or having to have spots but have no dry patches. Neither of those are fun, let me tell you. I tended to opt for having dry skin, because when my skin breaks out it’s always those really painful ones that never amount to anything but should really be paying rent. TMI? Dad Joke? Good start.



The idea from this post came from Buy Now Blog Later. When I read her post I literally laughed out loud, like actually LOL’d.

It’s simple – list out a series of beauty products and then sit back and listen to the perception of their purpose. Or in our case, I’ll let him fill it in himself, I won’t comment and won’t help in any way.

Chris has actually tried to do my makeup so could potentially have a head start but lets see.
