Let’s set the scene. I’m walking around Primark, looking to spend money on things I probably don’t need but really want. Everyone does this in Primark right? Anyway, I stumble upon the beauty section. The bit with all the other bits and bobs too (including a usb fan which I may have also bought), when I spotted the perfume section.
Now, admittedly I have had a Primark perfume before. At the time I didn’t have high hopes for it but I actually found myself reaching for it pretty much everyday. However this is going back a few years, so with Primark and there ever changing stock, they didn’t have the one I would have grabbed.
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.
