In July, I placed my first order with Liz Earle and finally, I've found the perfect skincare routine for my skin. Yes, believe the hype, people. Liz Earle is amazing! I've tried so many brands - high end and drugstore - so many cleansers, toners, lotions and potions, with not much luck. After constantly hearing and reading beauty bloggers rave on about Liz Earle, I thought I'd give it a shot too and I was certainly impressed! My skin definitely isn't perfect, but I've never used a product that has helped control my breakouts as much as Liz Earle. After running out of the 50mL bottles just recently, I ordered two full size bottles of the cleanser and toner, plus the light moisturiser because I found the normal moisturiser a bit too heavy for me. I'm set for a good six months or so, I think! Ordering online internationally does mean I have to pay for shipping costs, but to me, it's worth it. When I add up all the costs, it doesn't even end up being much more than I'd pay for products in Australia.
Liz Earle always have special offers and promotions going on, so you definitely get your money's worth with free goodies! In the little blue pouch, I received more toner and moisturiser, Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer, Hand Repair and Superbalm. I am so thankful for the online beauty blogging community. Without it, I never would have discovered the wonder that is Liz Earle.
Another lady in beauty that I love is Estée Lauder. I had heard amazing reviews about this on both YouTube and Blogger and then I was overwhelmed to discover more great reviews on MakeupAlley. I knew I had to try this. A couple of weeks ago, I visited the Estée Lauder counter at Myer and the saleslady was super friendly and helpful! I've never experienced such great customer service. She threw in a whole bunch of Idealist Pore Minimising Skin Refinisher Serum and DayWear moisturiser samples for me, which was so nice of her! She told me to use these two products during the day and the Advanced Night Repair at night. She told me if there was one skincare item she couldn't live without it was this. I've used it a few times so far and I've definitely noticed a difference.
Lastly, I paid a visit to Mecca Cosmetica so I could pick up that Bumble and Bumble Shine On spray I've had on my wishlist. It smells like and has a similar effect to Brilliantine, which is one of my favourite hair products of theirs. I also picked up a whitening toothpaste because I've been getting into teeth whitening lately. It's lemonade flavour, which is really different (and yum!), though it doesn't foam much. Most higher end toothpastes are like that, but I suppose that's a good thing because Sodium Lauryl Sulfate isn't.
Well, thanks if you read all that! This post has inspired me to do a skincare and haircare routine soon.
