Spring. I can’t tell you how much Londoners needed this. A 5-10C jump in temperature has completely transformed the city.
Longer days have also meant that I no longer have to squeeze in running during my lunch hour and spend the rest of the day with a questionable smell about me, which is always nice and a bonus .. for everybody.
I have also had a bit of a spring clean with skincare and have thrown out products which I haven’t used in years. Alarmingly I have also thrown out some products which are not even sold in the shops anymore, a testament to how old they were.
Only two items remain (minus eye cream, make-up and hair serum). The first:
Don’t let the name put you off. It’s not a £5 cream I know but I’ve had this for 1 month now and using it twice a day, this is what the inside looks like:
Hardly used any.
It will set you back between £28-£38 depending on the size you get and should last you longer than 6 months. That’s on average £6 a month if you’re alarmed by the total price. If it lasts you less , what the hell are you doing!?
The second item:
The Toner… ahh the toner. Could have done without the toner. Also at £28, this Crystal Iris Extract toner is about as ridiculous as the name. Maybe in 20 years time I will look back and say
Wow. Where would I be without crystal and iris extracts .
And I have to admit the toner was a guilt-purchase. I cannot describe the look of horror the sales assistant gave me when I said ,’Just the moisturiser’ .
So the toner happened.
Any items you’ve been guilted into buying? Interested to hear from you!
