In terms of what i'm passionate about, skincare and makeup are probably joint. Even though i love trying out new products to improve my skin, if i've found something that works i generally stick to it until it runs out, as i hate wasting product, and i also don't want to risk overloading and confusing my skin. I recently finished up some products so i thought i'd use it as an opportunity to try out some new things rather than repurchasing the same old. I'm still on the look out for a good daytime serum which is good for brightening and hydration, so if you know of one, let me know!

THE NEW CLEANSERS // The Ren Evercalm cleansing milk is not technically new, in fact theres about 1/6 of it left, but its new to my stash. This was once my mums but she prefers using balms, so it got passed along to me and its become my morning cleanser when i want something simple and gentle. It cleanses the skin well without leaving it stripped or overly nourished, and it works well as a first cleanse in the evening too (although only with light makeup!). The Radical hydrating cleanser is a cleanser which has been on my wish list for a huge amount of time after seeing Amelia review it, and having finished my Superfacialist creamy cleanser a while ago i thought i'd give it a try. Its a lovely light cream with a citrus scent which i LOVE, although i do find i need to use a fair bit of this to cover my whole face which is unusual for me. Expect a review sometime soon!

THE NEW EYE CREAMS // Having recently thrown away two eye creams after finding they were way out of date and my only one being on its last legs, i knew these purchases were inevitable. The Korres wild rose eye cream will be my eye cream of choice for the day once i've finished up the one i'm currently using, and the fact it has SPF 15 means its perfect for the summer months.  Hopefully it actually works to help keep my dark circles at bay! The other is the Kiehls creamy eye treatment which i probably got about 2 months ago, but i thought i'd include it anyway as i'm not sure its had a mention.  This eye cream is great for deeply hydrating my eyes and getting rid of any pesky dry patches i may have on my lids. Definitely one strictly for the night time but i'd recommend it to anyone with dry eyes.

THE MOISTURISERS // Moisurisers are probably the only things i didn't really need as i do have some in my stash, but they weren't really suited to the weather we have at the moment. The Korres wild rose moisturiser actually came in this set with the eye cream i bought, and i managed to bag them both for £16 with free postage which i'm pretty pleased about as thats cheaper than buying the eye cream alone! I was planning on picking up a Pai moisturiser for the day time, but i'm actually really impressed with this one, it brightens and smooths the skin, leaving it hydrated without being rich making it great for the warmer weather. The Antipodes avocado night cream was bought for me for my birthday by my boyfriend, and its been a great addition to my evening skincare routine. It mainly hydrates the skin, but i've found that it also helps to make my skin look a lot more healthy on the whole, giving me a 'i've just had 10 hours sleep' look which is always a good thing!

Are there any skincare products you've tried out recently you think i'd like?
