Just last week Sunday we celebrated Mother’s Day here in the UK, a usual Sunday affair which calls for a trip to my mother in-laws house and an afternoon of good food, debates with my in-laws and reflections of the good old days when my mum was around. Unlike most mother’s days however, this day was very different and not in the way we had hoped.
Just minutes before heading to the car after a wonderful church service, hubby realised that his car key was MIA! A discovery which lead to a one hour search party and a very hungry and frustrated Fiona. Needless to say our efforts were in vain and after an hour the key was still nowhere to be found.
Whilst other adults in the church helped us search far and wide for the missing key, I took a trip to the back of the church with hopes of retracing hubbys steps. On my way I bumped into a group of teenagers who were playing a game called ‘Never have I ever’, a game that brought back so many memories of my adolescent years.
Where are you going with this Fiona? Well in memory of the key [which was never found], and as a celebration of my recent product combination discovery… Never have I ever seen my skin look this good!
For the past week I’ve woken up to bright, plump and glowing skin, a phenomenon that only happens to this extent when I’m on holiday. Each morning this week I’ve woken up and ran straight to the bathroom to observe my face. I’m shocked at how consistence the results have been, it’s crazy!
The products and technique behind this change?
My usual bedtime routine involves four or five steps:
1) Removing any makeup I’ve got on
2) A facial scrub/exfoliation of some sort
4) Hyaluronic Acid [to deliver my night cream below further into my skin]
5) A night cream.
This all changed slightly last week when I ran out of my usual Bioderma Micellaire makeup remover and decided to use Coconut Oil to remove my makeup instead. Hands down the best makeup remover I’ve ever used! It had my lashes mascara free in just a matter of seconds. I then decided to go ahead with my toner and followed this up with the OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid. As for the final step I decided against a face cream and very spontaneously doused my face in several squirts of the renown Missha Treatment Essence [contains fermented yeast – anti aging, beetroot extract – antioxidant rich], I had no idea just how powerful this trio would be!
I’ll be continuing this routine till the end of the week to see how my skin continues to respond, they say too much of anything is never a good thing. Until then I’m in love and have just ordered a bottle for my mentor and a close friend. I’m excited to see their results and have a good feeling they’ll be addicts in no time!
