Products used in my 'Daily Beauty Routine'

Hope you've all been well, I've been bogged down with all sorts recently, hence my disappearance from the blogosphere and lack of posts. This is most definitely a long over due tag from Zoe of 13 December so here goes with my Daily Beauty Routine.

I'm sure you've all read raves about the following products, so I shan't go into any details
Lancome Bi-Facial cleanser for the eyes
Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

I've been trying out different brands of cleansers over the years and find that certain drugstore brands work just as well as high end products. One of the drugstore cleansers I like is the SIMPLE Deep Cleansing Facial Wash, which was purchased in HK and the SIMPLE Moisturising Facial Wash, this was purchased in London and not available in HK. Both of these cleansers remind me of the SKII Facial Treatment Cleanser I previously used.

I have sensitive and a combination skin type and both the SIMPLE products cleanses without drying and gives no harsh results like some I've tested, which is great for the skin and the wallet.

Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist
Glycel Hydro-Firm Treatment Essence
Dermalogica Gentle Soothing Booster
Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF30

Currently testing out the SIMPLE Regeneration Eye Cream
so far so good and absorbs like a charm.

I tend to switch between products after a period of time and currently going through a trial with the Diorsnow range.
Diorsnow Sublissime UV Ultimate whitening UV Base SPF 50-PA+++
Diorsnow White Reveal Essence
Diorsnow White Reveal Lotion 2

My current foundation choice varies from the items below:
Lunasol Contraol Makeup Base
Lunasol Modeling Water Liquid Foundation
L'egere white multi BB cream
MAQuillAGE Pore Perfect Cover
Chantecaille Real Skin Foundation

EYE MAKE-UPOn certain days I may go without eyeshadow but eyeliner and mascara is a MUST for me.
My current favorites-From top to bottom

More Jewels from Worship @ the House of Blues

From a previous post I wrote regarding jewels from Worship At The House of Blues, I'm sure you can gather that I've taken quite a distinctive liking to the original jewellery created by this artistic lady and I've now been lucky enough to own a third piece from her Fabulous creations.

The latest item I've snatched is the
"Pearl Chronology"
and the dearest Y San included gifts of a mask and lotion sample, I was also pleasantly surprised with a pair of earrings included in the package. THANK YOU my dear, you are too generous,
I can't Thank You enough.

I love the details on the back of the open faced pocket watch.

Swarovski pearls and crystal beads.

Me Love!

The gifted crystal earrings I've been sporting.
