I do love a good weekend pamper. This weekend relatives have come to visit, so I’ve had to make sure that IPL, a constant stream of food and a wi-fi connection is available at all times which hasn’t left an awful lot of time for my usual beautifying shenanigans. But over the past few weeks I’ve refined a little routine that clears up my complexion, cleans up my nails, nourishes my locks and moisturises my body, which I will no doubt be indulging in when they leave.

I’ve spoken before about my old makeup hoarding ways; being borderline obsessive with tracking down MAC limited edition items, yearning for a nail polish collection that could be described as the complete colour spectrum and dreaming of a spare room full of makeup. But this year it all changed. I’m not sure what exactly happened, but something just clicked.

‘My Basket’ is a new addition to my beauty-things storage. I’m always trying out new hair and body products so the basket is my way of keeping track of what things I’m using and loving at that moment; as things get used up I swap in new products from my stocks and if something is not up to scratch then out it goes and in comes another product to save the day. So it’s safe to say that a product has wheedled its way into the basket then its probably doing a good job. In the past weeks the basket has had an almost 100% overhaul so here are what products I’m slathering on my body and hair at the moment!

Today I am nursing a rather large boulder that’s erupted on my chin. Lovely. I have a few skincare saviours in my arsenal though that I deploy on occasions like today, so let’s have a chat about them…

At the weekends I go back to basics with my skincare. Chances are I’m lounging around all day with a quick trip into town or the less glamourous grocery store wedged in, so makeup takes a backseat and I embrace the no makeup look, spending time focusing on my skincare and giving my face a good ol’ clean and time to breathe.
