Spring cleaning

Hello friends,

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:

Item number 1.
Item number 1. Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Silk Creme

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:

Purifying Toning lotion
Purifying Toning lotion


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 .


Maybe not.

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!


One thought on “Spring cleaning

  1. Going to a beauty counter is always a dangerous experience for my bank balance. I don’t think I’ve ever even made it out of Boots without being at least £20 lighter!! It doesn’t help that I am one of those people who just can’t seem to make even the most expensive cream last…
