Hashtag - OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips

Today's Monday Manicure post is inspired by hashtags. I've been sporting this OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips colour I got from Nailbox on my nails all week. To jazz it up at the end of the week I added some pattern using Revlon Buttercup, also from Nailbox.

I love the contrast between the two and how they look together. What do you think of the look?

My skin care favourites - Liz Earle and Clarins

I like to change up my skin care routine as I test out different products or want to try something new that has come out, but there are some products I always have in my stash and find myself going back to.

These are tried and tested products that have stood the test of time. The first of these are this duo from Clarins, the Cleansing Milk and Toning Lotion. I first started using these more than 10 years ago when after going to see a dermatologist and trying to fight acne I was recommended to go for something milder for my skin. After looking around I came across these and have never looked back since. I love the toner in particular as it is alcohol free and has camomile. It doesn't dry my skin out like many other toners do and it doesn't leave my skin tingly or stinging. It is gentle and a perfect step before moisturising. I love the smell of the cleansing lotion and how it leaves my skin soft and prepped for the toner.

The latter two are later editions. I didn't start using Liz Earle skin care until a couple of years ago and since trying the cult Cleanse and Polish cleanser it is usually my staple product to get all my make-up off at the end of the day. Nothing leaves my skin feeling and looking cleaner as this.

And I have been using the Skin Moisturiser for just over a year now. I love how a little goes a long way and leaves my skin feeling soft, supple and ready for make-up.

What are your go-to skin care products that you can't live without? Have you tried any of the above, and what do you think of them?

Nailbox - April Box

We've had the beauty subscription boxes, but now it's time for the nail polishes' turn with the new Nailbox*. I got four polishes and the subscription cost is almost covered in this box with the OPI one alone.
