Makeup | Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer Review

Charlotte tilbury airbrush bronzer in shade medium 2 review

Today, I thought I would add my two pence on one of the many new additions to Charlotte Tilbury’s makeup line – the Airbrush Bronzer in 2 Medium! I lusted after this all summer but just couldn’t bring myself to spend £39 on it and I find CT discounts are usually capped at 10% off or the brand is excluded altogether. I finally made the purchase when Space NK did their £15 off a £60 spend and made the most of the discount with a few other purchases too! 

 

Charlotte tilbury airbrush bronzer medium 2 review

First off, this is the largest bronzer I own by a mile, at 18g it’s a whopper! No risk of me hitting pan or running out any time soon so I guess that price tag becomes a little easier to swallow! By comparison, NARS Laguna is 8g and Fenty Sun Stalkr is 6.23g. With only four shades, it’s not the most inclusive and I have to say that the second shade Medium is not actually as dark as I was expecting and I wondered if I could have got away with 3 Tan which is a little shocking considering how fair/pale I am! 

 

Charlotte tilbury airbrush matte bronzer medium 2 review
 

Not being as dark as I expected is not necessarily a bad thing as it means I can easily build up the colour. The powder is very finely milled and I wouldn’t say its hugely pigmented – again not a bad thing in my eyes – and this really does give a beautiful airbrushed finish as the name would suggest. It’s smooth to apply, gives my face some subtle warmth and blends seamlessly into the rest of my makeup leaving no harsh, hard to blend lines. It’s matte too but not flat and I really am blown away with the formula!

 

Not sure why I sound so shocked as I love all the Charlotte Tilbury products I have and in particular the bronze shade from Bronze and Glow is a long term favourite of mine! The only thing I would say is that on my oily/combo skin I do notice some slight fading/wearing off close to my ear where I am on the phone for work. This isn’t something that’s noticeable to other people and is a recurring problem I have with all bronzers not just this one!

The compact itself, apart from being a bitch to photograph, is absolutely beautiful, it’s like a giant shell! It’s size doesn’t make it feel overly heavy and it’s sleek and got a good size mirror too. I don’t want to jinx myself but I feel like if I dropped it the powder would break in an instant so let’s hope I don’t get butter fingers!

I’ve included some unedited swatches with some of my other bronzers so you can get an idea of how the shade compares, hopefully it helps! I am forever looking up swatches of products I am interested in especially now when I can’t get to test them out at the actual counter! If you like these types of reviews check out my NARS Laguna one too!

What’s in my Mum’s Makeup Bag #2

Morning all! I was having a nosy through my mums makeup the other day and thought I would do an updated version of this post from a few years ago (based on one Jasmine did)! Not much has changed but here’s a little look into a fifty somethings makeup bag! 


mums makeup bag

Like myself, my mum’s two favourite foundations are Estee Lauder Double Wear in Desert Beige and Revlon Colourstay Combination/Oily in Sand Beige. She has been reaching for the Colourstay more often these days as she’s not going too far and its obviously more affordable than the EL. Both are long lasting, full coverage and staples in both our makeup bags! When I discovered the Laura Mercier Translucent loose setting powder a few years ago I told my mum about it and lo and behold she bought a pot and loves it too! Its mattifying without being cakey and even though its expensive, a pot lasts a long time! 

 

Her bronzer which you can see is well loved it a cast off from me from longer ago than I care to remember! It’s the Loreal Glam Bronze in 06 Golden Bronze which seems to be discontinued (my mum said typical when I told her this which we will get to in a minute) or renamed as Back to Bronze now! She likes it as it’s not too in your face and the light shade means she can build it up! I’m one part impressed one part embarrassed my mum is still using this mini NARS Orgasm blush, she likes a project empty more than me! This is another hand me down from me as I already have the shade and while my mum said she likes the colour she found it too sparkly so it’s not going to be one she repurchases! She also uses an Estee Lauder compact she got as a GWP (shades are Signature Silky Powder Bush Nude Rose 11, Bronze Goddess Soft Matte bronzer 01 and Signature Shimmer powder Gold Pearl 01). Clearly the matte blush and bronzer shade are more loved than the shimmer but she says she mixes these as a blush. 

 

The NYX Retractable waterproof eye liner in Grey is the best eye liner my mum has found in recent years as it doesn’t smudge and stays put all day and as luck would have it NYX seem to have discontinued it! My mum currently has five backups as she noticed it was out of stock everywhere but the NYX website and I just went to see if I could link it and it’s not there anymore! She is not impressed! For her brows she uses Gimme Brow in shade 1 as it’s so quick and easy and she’s just asked me to get her a new one for Christmas too! Although she has tried the Charlotte Tilbury lip cheat in Pillowtalk she find she goes through it too quickly for what it’s worth so she is back to the No7 Precision Lips pencil in Nude as its much more affordable and does the job! Bobbi Brown lip colour in Brown has been my mums signature lipstick for as long as I can remember and the only one she used until I sent her a mini MAC Velvet Teddy for Christmas one year! The MAC is more matte but both last well and are similar shades, classic nudes!

 

With the amount of pan going on in this picture I asked what back-ups she has and similarly to last time we have Benefit Hoola Bronzer as well as NYX Blush in Mauve (another recommendation from moi and another one that is discontinued and she bought back ups of lol).


makeup pan

Like last time there is no primer, concealer, highlighter, eyeshadow or mascara here because my mum doesn’t use them! She wears glasses and gets her lashes tinted so just misses the mascara step and doesn’t see the point in the others! Do you recognise any of these products from your makeup bag? What do you do when your favourite makeup products get discontinued?

Current Skincare | Facial Mists #1

facial mists review January labs pyungkang yul Mario badescu sukin

I’m really enjoying going through my stash at the minute and doing these current skincare posts so here’s what is currently in my facial mist collection! First up, my ultimate favourite, holy grail – the January Labs Restorative Tonic Mist! I have lost count over how many bottles I have went through of this stuff now and I could not recommend it more! It’s refreshing, hydrating and really helps with blemishes! Containing aloe extract, witch hazel, sodium PCA, flower oil extract, licorice and calendula extract, this mist is anti-inflammatory and works as an antioxidant too! I use this in my morning and evening skincare routine after cleansing and toning before treatments or serums and moisturisers. There is a slight scent but it’s not offensive in the slightest and it’s been a staple in my skincare routine for four years now! Believe me when I say I am DEVASTATED Cult Beauty do not stock this anymore. If anyone knows of another UK seller please tell me because the shipping and customs to order this from the USA are more expensive than the product itself which is $24 

 

As a side note, it seems Cult Beauty have removed a few more indie brands from their website, as well as January Labs, I noticed Mabel + Meg have disappeared too. Obviously a business decision was made but as a consumer this is disappointing to me as that’s what I went to Cult Beauty for, not the big brand names like Elemis etc they have started selling. Personally, as Cult Beauty rarely do discounts, I try to wait for the GWP offer before making a purchase off their site and that’s when I will splurge! Look Fantastic do 20% off Elemis every day of the week so if I was buying something from them it would be off LF! Anyway rant over! 

 

Next up I have the Pyunkang Yul Mist Toner which I purchased at the same time as the cult favourite essence toner. Cooling and soothing, this contains Barberry root extract (antioxidant and anti-inflammatory) as well as sodium hyaluronate so it feels nicely hydrating too. It’s also fragrance free and has been a real nice addition into my skincare routine as it’s so calming! Its £9.50 and Tonic15 usually have up to 15% off with a code! 

 

My other long term love and one I have just recently repurchased as it’s a handbag/desk side staple for me is the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater! It contains aloe and rosewater and like the others feels very refreshing and hydrating on the skin. I spritz my face with this throughout the day and find it doesn’t disturb my makeup as it delivers a good even dose of hydration. It also helps with the mid-afternoon slump as its cooling! Worth mentioning this contains fragrance which I find quite light so it doesn’t bother me but I know a lot of people don’t love this spray! It’s £6.75 from Beauty Bay and they often have 20% off it! 

 

Finally, the Sukin Original Hydrating Mist Toner was one I picked up from Holland and Barratt a few months ago when trying to meet the minimum spend for free delivery haha, at £2.50 I couldn’t say no! This is also one I prefer as a handbag spritz and I love how dinky it is! I thought I would go through it very quickly but its lasted me ages! It contains chamomile and rosewater and again it feels cooling and soothing and I know over winter when my skin dries out with the heating and weather extremes it will help hydrate it! 


So, that’s what I currently have in my collection! It’s also worth noting these are all alcohol free which is important to me as I use them mostly as an extra step for hydration and the calming effect they have! Let me know what your favourites are, I am always on the lookout for new products! If you want to see my other instalments in this blog series, here are the last batch of cleansers and toners!

Dry Shampoo Showdown #2

A couple of years ago I reviewed the dry shampoos I owned at the time and I thought it was time for a slight update (although you will see one repeat performance!). Dry shampoo is an every couple of days essential for me, I’ve got greasy roots and my hair is long and fine meaning it can look limp if it’s not freshy washed so dry shampoo is a lifesaver! Here’s what I’m currently using up! 


dry shampoo review batiste vo5 tresemme Bardot

Batiste Dry Shampoo and De-Frizz

It had been a few years since I tried Batiste when I decided to pick up this bottle in its new packaging! Then once I used it, I was reminded why I stopped buying it. I thought with the promise of the invisible formula they would have updated their formulation but sadly not. I find this to leave a white cast on my dark hair, it barely soaks up any oil and the scent is very old fashioned. My hair is not massively frizzy but I do get some flyaway’s and I didn’t notice a difference with this. I know lots of people swear by Batiste but for me it’s nowhere near good enough! 

 

VO5 Refresh Dry Shampoo 

Probably my most repurchased dry shampoo ever (seriously, search VO5 in my search bar) and this one also featured in the first instalment of this blog series! It’s got a fresh, clean scent, leaves absolutely no white cast and easily gives me an extra day out of my hair making it look less greasy and much fresher! It doesn’t take too much effort rubbing in the spray either as its basically transparent! It pains me to say I think this has been discontinued as its out of stock or ridiculously priced online although sometimes I see it in random grocery shops. I hope they bring it back as it was such a great dry shampoo and so affordable too! 

 

TRESemme Day 2 Between Washes Volumizing Dry Shampoo 

When I lived in Canada, I went through so many bottles of the TRESemme dry shampoo so when I got home I was gutted when I couldn’t find it! Eventually I saw this version which is slightly different and though not *quite* as good, still worth a go if you are looking for a dry shampoo on a budget. Similarly to the VO5, it has a very fresh, light scent and doesn’t leave a white cast. I don’t find it does a lot for volume though despite its claims though I do have long, fine hair so not much does! 

 

Bardot Dry Shampoo 

Lastly, I have the Bardot dry shampoo, and it’s another one I *think* may have been discontinued sadly! This is my second bottle of this and while the RRP is £19 I would never pay that for a dry shampoo. I would be bankrupt at the rate I go through them! I got mine for £2.50 when MMCL did a huge sale a while back and it was money well spent! It’s another translucent formulation, it soaks up my oils nicely and also leaves my hair looking like it’s got a bit more oomph! The only thing I’m not keen on is the floral scent but throughout the day it becomes less strong! 

 

Overall, the V05 wins for me, it’s an old favourite and ticks all the boxes! If you’d like to read the last post in this series, you can do so here! I definitely need to revisit the Klorane dry shampoo soon! What is your favourite dry shampoo?

Five Things I’m Loving | September 2020

rice toner review fenty good molecules garden of wisdom dr jart

Hi guys and welcome back to another favourites instalment! These are the products I can’t stop reaching for currently and it’s skincare heavy! But, to start with, I cannot get enough of the Fenty Beauty PRO FILT’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation! I picked this up a couple of months ago when I was buying the new slip shine lipstick as Boots had 15% off and I had went through a couple of bottles years ago and wanted to try again. It’s a beautiful, full coverage, matte foundation that does a really good job of covering my acne. I find after about 6 hours of wear I do need to powder again as my skin is combo/oily but this doesn’t cause the foundation to wear off! It doesn’t quite beat Estee Lauder Double Wear for me (I don’t think anything will) but it’s a really nice alternative for when I want something different and the finish is beautiful! At £27 it’s not the cheapest but Boots regularly have it on offer and the shade range is impressive too! 

 

Moving onto skincare, I went toner crazy a few months ago and the one I find myself reaching for most often is the I’m From Rice Toner. This is a milky, hydrating toner that contains rice extract to brighten the skin as well as my old favourite niacinamide too! I love using this in the morning as it feels calming and balancing as well as brightening and doesn’t dry my skin out so it feels well prepped for my next skincare steps and makeup. It's £26 and I picked it up from Tonic 15 and they always have a 10 or 15% off discount kicking about too! 

 

Following toner (and facial mist) I have been using the Garden of Wisdom Hyaluronic Acid Serum every day and it has quickly joined the Good Molecules hyaluronic acid in my budget hall of fame (I don’t rate the Ordinary or Inkey List’s hyaluronic acids at all). I love the texture of this, it feels like a very lightweight gel and it spreads easily over my face sinking in quickly. My skin has a tendency to be get dehydrated but since using this I have noticed a big reduction in the patches of dehydration I normally get around my nose and chin and at £10 it won’t break the bank! I recently picked up a few more of GOW’s products as I’ve been so impressed with this one!

 

I’ve also been using the Good Molecules Discoloration Correcting Serum* almost daily - this is my second bottle of this serum though first in the new “nothing to hide ingredients list’’ version! Good Molecules have recently updated their packaging to include how much of each ingredient is in their products and I love the transparency! This contains 2% Cetyl Tranexamate Mesylate which works to improve the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation as well as 4% niacinamide to target pores, uneven skin texture and oiliness! I have really been struggling with acne over the last few months and am due to go on Roaccutane within the next month but I have seen such an improvement in my pigmentation, especially on my jawline and chin area, since using this and my skin looks more even overall. It feels very gentle, can be used morning and night and at $12 is a steal!  


good molecules discoloration correcting serum review

Finally, I have to mention the Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream, another old favourite that has been repurchased. I picked this up again earlier in the year but only opened it last month and I still love it as much as ever! This is more of a balm than a standard moisturising cream and never leaves my skin feeling greasy. It’s packed full of ceramides and hyaluronic acid and locks hydration in all day. It also sits really well under makeup, I never bother with primer when I use this as my makeup always sits better with it anyway! It’s £35.50 but the tube lasts for ages as a little goes a long way! I got mine from Look Fantastic and they always have 20% off codes! 

 

So those are my current favourites! I would love to hear what you thought of these if you have tried them! Most of these will work well for me when I start Roaccutane too which is good but if you have any hydration favourites please let me know those too!

Current Skincare | Cleansers #3

cleanser review Elemis Emma Hardie fresh indie lee

Welcome back to another instalment of my current skincare rundown and today it’s my cleansers again! I’m on a bit of a kick at the minute of using up my minis before I buy anymore full sizes so as I’ve been rotating these now for a few weeks I’m ready to give my thoughts! 


Elemis balm drunk elephant slaai review

The First Cleanse 

Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm

I was so excited to try this one as it’s such a cult favourite but sadly the hype may have been too much as I don’t love it quite as much as it seems everyone else does! It feels a little like applying melted toffee to my face and though it does remove makeup well and make my skin feel soft, I have found my eyes to be sensitive to it and it leaves them blurry for a bit after I remove it. The rose scent is pleasant but overall at £44 for the full size (105g) this one isn’t for me! 


Elemis balm drunk elephant slaai texture review

Drunk Elephant Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser 

Firstly, I’m not a fan of this brand as there always seems to be some sort of negative reaction from them whether it be their response to BLM or just general customer criticism but like I said, in the spirit of using things up, this cleanser made it into my rotation. I have been distinctly underwhelmed with every other mini I have tried from this brand but I do have to say this has been my favourite product of theirs I have sampled. It’s a hard balm that softens on contact with the skin and like the Elemis cleanser, makes light work of a full face of makeup but no eye sensitivity with this one, hurray! It also comes with a little sachet (see some of them in the texture pic as I am messy oops) of ultra-fine bamboo and charcoal spheres which can be mixed in for a dose of exfoliation and it’s easy to add more or less depending on how gentle you want this to be! At £29 for the full size 110g (with 3g bamboo booster) I think this is more reasonably priced than some of their other products too but it’s not going to be a repurchase for me!


cleanser review indie lee Emma Hardie fresh soy

The Second Cleanse/Morning Cleanse 

Indie Lee Rosehip Cleanser 

I wonder if this has been discontinued as I struggled to find many links for it but aside from that this is a lovely light gel to foam cleanser that left my skin feeling nourished and calmed! It says it removes makeup but I only used this as my second cleanse or morning cleanse so can’t say much for that side of it! It contains rosehip oil which is one of my favourite skincare ingredients as well as seaweed extracts and vitamins A, C and E. Strangely, I do find I get a slight “squeaky clean” feel with this which I don’t normally like but it doesn’t feel stripping at all and I think, due to the ingredients, with long term use I would see more benefits with things like dry patches on my skin so might be more suited to my winter skin! It is £32 for the full size which is 125ml. 

 

Emma Hardie Moringa Light Cleansing Gel 

The EH Moringa Cleansing Balm is one of my favourite cleansers so I couldn’t wait to try the light gel version! They both have the same luxurious citrus scent but obviously the texture is very different! It contains Moringa, sweet almond oil, omega 6, vitamin E and essential fatty acids so it feels super hydrating on the skin as well as making it feel soft. I personally prefer to use this at night as a second cleanse as opposed to my morning cleanse as the feel of the oils acts like extra hydration for me and I don’t need any extra oil on my skin during the day! This was the smallest of my samples so I haven’t quite fallen in love with it as much as the OG balm cleanser which will be my next cleanser repurchase once I get through my mini stash as the scent has reminded me how much I love it! The full size gel retails for £34 for 100ml. 

 

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser 

Finally, we have the Fresh Soy cleanser – a super lightweight cucumber scented gel and probably my favourite of the three second cleansers I have featured here! It’s pH balanced and rich in amino acids to help maintain healthy skin and keep it calm and nourished. This one also claims to remove makeup but again I haven’t tested the theory as I much prefer an oil or balm to do that job! I do find this is my current preferred AM cleanse as it’s so balancing and mattifying without feeling like it’s dried out my skin. Very simple but very soothing and £30 for 150ml! 

 

I am loving using up my stash at the minute so I’m going to try to get some more cleansers into rotation soon as I’m nearly finished all three of the morning cleansers already! If you want to read about my previous cleansers check out the first and second instalments of this series! Let me know if you have tried any of the above or tell your favourite cleansers!

Product Empties #28

product empties dermalogica review skin accumax versed ouai


Well everyone, it’s that time again! The old Look Fantastic beauty box I use to house my empties is overflowing so here’s are the latest products I’ve finished up! 


dermalogica review cleanser
 

Skincare 

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel*

Absolutely gutted to have finished this up as I love it so much! It’s a watery gel that lathers on contact with water and leaves my skin feeling matte and prepped for my next steps but never stripped! Wrote about it more in this post! Will repurchase 100%! 

 

Dermalogica Active Clay Cleanser*

Another favourite! This one was perfect for my acne prone oily skin this summer and also doubles as a mask. I think I went through this one a bit quicker as my mum was using it too so it has her seal of approval also! Wrote more about it here and will repurchase! 

 

Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse*

This is a really luxurious oil and it removes makeup with ease! It’s got a citrus scent and I did find my eyes could be a little irritated by it so for that reason I wouldn’t repurchase! 

 

Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream*

A really simple but effective moisturiser, my skin drank this up! It’s creamy but lightweight and kept my skin hydrated all day and sat really well under makeup too! Would repurchase! 

 

Dermalogica Biolumin-C Eye Serum*

This is a gorgeous lightweight serum that really helped with fine lines and firmness, I don’t have bad dark circles but my undereyes were definitely brighter using this! It’s pricey but with daily use I got about six months use out of it so would repurchase! Read more thoughts on it here! 

 

Versed Baby Cheeks All in One Hydrating Milk

Really enjoyed this toner and it’s packaging! It was hydrating and calming and left my skin soft and prepped. I moved onto the infamous I’m From Rice Toner after this and though its early days I *think* I prefer it so probably wouldn’t repurchase this one! I have a post on it here! 

 

The Inkey List Retinol 

This is one of my favourite Inkey List products! I think it is a great introduction to Retinol as it feels so gentle (sorry, percentages and types of retinol are not my forte so do correct me if I’m wrong!) It’s quite liquidy and I always wake up to bright, plump skin after using! I used about ¾ of the bottle before switching to the next one I will talk about but I finished this on my neck! Already have a backup but I might give it to my mum as I want something stronger! Read more about it in my budget skincare picks here! 

 

Verso Super Facial Serum

I love this, it felt more potent to me than the Inkey List retinol and I saw a marked improvement in my skin overall – especially my elevens and fine lines on my forehead as well as pigmentation on my lower cheeks and jawline. I was also impressed with how long this tiny sample lasted me! The only negative is that it is £110 for 30mls so it won’t be a repurchase for me right now as I want to try Medik8’s crystal retinal offering but I can see me coming back to this even with the price tag if that doesn’t compare! 

 

Amorepacific The Essential Crème Fluid

This was a very nice hydrating fluid that felt smoothing and I really enjoyed the scent too but for the price it’s not worth it for me so won’t be a repurchase! 


bodycare empties vaseline soap and glory soaper duper

Bodycare

Vaseline Essential Healing Body Lotion

Another empties another Vaseline body lotion! You can’t beat this cheap and cheerful moisturiser! I love the fresh scent and find the lotion itself is lightweight but nourishing and dries in quickly! Have already repurchased! 

 

Soap and Glory Pulp Friction Body Scrub

My favourite body scrub! This isn’t my favourite scent but the scrub itself is amazing! It lathers up quickly and the “vitaminballs” don’t feel abrasive at all. This and a scrubbing mitt are a dream team for stubborn fake tan! I have a few other scrubs to get through then I will repurchase though knowing Soap and Glory they will have discontinued it by then as it's one of my faves! 

 

Hawaiian Tropic Air Soft After Sun Lotion

I picked this up as I wanted some nostalgia as I didn’t get on holiday this year ha. I then realised it was the SPF I had previously not the after sun so it didn’t generate any feelings of being on holiday but I did enjoy the cooling feeling of it and its pretty swirly pattern in the bottle! Would repurchase but not any time soon. 

 

Soaper Duper Creamy Deluxe Shea Butter Body Wash in Vanilla Pod 

This was a very liquidy body wash and though I don’t normally love vanilla I was very impressed with how realistic the scent was! Not my normal jam so wouldn’t go out of my way to repurchase but I did enjoy it! 

 

Sol de Janeiro Coco Cabana Cream 

A much more subtle scent that its sister Bum Bum Cream and a lovely thick hydrating body cream. I do prefer the Bum Bum scent so I won’t repurchase this one! 


haircare empties vo5 ouai

Haircare 

V05 Refresh Dry Shampoo 

My favourite dry shampoo that I cannot find anywhere except artisan grocery shops! What gives V05? This smells amazing, leaves no white cast and is only a few pounds so super affordable! I wish it was more easily available but if I see it again I will of course be repurchasing! 

 

OUAI Leave In Conditioner 

My favourite leave in product, this is smoothing, detangling and protective all while not weighing my hair down and smelling amazing! Read more about how much I love it here! Already repurchased!


revlon colourstay review collection review

Makeup

Revlon ColourStay Foundation (Combo/Oily) in Buff and Sand Beige 

My OG favourite affordable foundation! This stuff is full coverage and long lasting on my oily skin! Buff matches me when I have no tan on and Sand Beige is for when I do have fake tan on! I find Sand Beige does oxidise slightly but I have no problems with Buff and have already repurchased! Read more about my love for it here! 


Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in 1 Fair 

Another affordable makeup love! This gives really good coverage without drying out my problem areas and I have already repurchased!  

 

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask in Champagne 

Love the Bite lip masks, they are super thick so perfect for overnight hydration! I didn’t love the Champagne shade but it wasn’t a big deal as I just use it at night, already have a backup! 


skin accumax review

Miscellaneous

Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Accumax 120 capsules 

I’ve talked about these a few times in my empties and unfortunately I haven’t seen much difference with them which was disappointing for me as I know some people swear by them! They are a pricey option so this time I haven’t repurchased. Let’s just hope my skin doesn’t get any worse haha but I’ve been off them for about 2 weeks now and no change. I’ve actually made an appointment with a dermatologist for the end of the month to discuss going back on Roaccutane so wish me luck! 


Congratulations if you made it to the end of that! Let me know if you have tried any of the above products or what you are working on finishing at the minute!
