Today's prompt for the #mayskinchallenge hosted by @antiagingamber and @morethanjustskin is - drumroll... #skincareroutine! My favourite topic!
Here's tonight's routine for me. No acid as such, because my cleanser has glycolic. Actives for tonight are niacinamide and then my favourite Vitamin C 30%. Finally, two generous layers of hydration.
What's going on your skin tonight? Tell me! πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌ
The prompt for day 19 of the #mayskinchallenge is 'wishlist'. Back in January, I had posted my skincare wishlist for this year. I've only managed to get my paws on four of these so far (marked in green). Tap or zoom for the brands. I love all four! I'm hoping to get to try the others soon! 
What's on your skincare wishlist now? Go! πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌ
The @lookfantastic #beautybox for May 2017 is their #gettheglow edition. It contains seven #beautyproducts, of which three are full-sized. It also comes with this month's @elleuk magazine.

Starting the #mayskinchallenge with the prompt #skincarejourney.
My skincare journey since late 2015 has been blood, sweat and tears, thanks to a bad breakout that lasted almost six months, and I spent most of 2016 in hiding. 
Now, I have a solid #skincareroutine in place, and I'm undergoing #scarrevision procedures, including subcision, dermarolling, and microneedling RF. The photographs here show pre- and post-subcision from yesterday. The tape holds local anaesthetic ointment. The after is a red mess which will improve in a couple of days.
Things are definitely looking up, albeit very slowly. Stay tuned for more updates on my skincare journey.
Huge thanks to @gemeliza for telling me about this skincare challenge, and thanks to @antiagingamber and @morethanjustskin for hosting it!
Do NOT read this book while waiting outside the doctor's. Other people WILL stare and laugh at you as you gasp, start, squeak, not hear your name being called, and almost fall off your chair in shock. No, really - the last one actually happened when I reached page 162. What an absolute shocker that page was!!
BRILLIANT stuff. I highly recommend this book to everyone! #clivecussler
The @nomakenolife #beautybox for May 2017 is here, from Japan. It costs just $29.99 and includes free worldwide delivery. Everything is full-sized.

Happy Mother's Day to my makeup-mentor, co-conspirator, and the woman who has bequeathed to me her penchant for getting into all kinds of scrapes, her skills at antique-hunting, her lack of interest in craft and cooking, and her love for Paradise Lost, vintage girl annuals, Greek drama, and theatre, along with a few dozen allergies, and deep-set eyes. #mothersday2017 #mothersday #motherslove #mothersanddaughters #mummyandme #mummysgirl #mummystyle #mummydaughterlove
The @lauragellerbeauty Fifty Kisses Lip Locking #liquidlipstick in Melon Crush is not my usual cup of tea (dusty rose) but I'm liking the overall effect, especially with a toned-down eye. Thoughts?
This "CC cream" for the lips from @nomakenolife has become my go-to lip balm! It has a subtle peachy sheen, and no fragrance. It keeps my lips decent without lanolin-overkill. #nmnllips #nomakenolife
This gorgeous bottle contains the best Vitamin C - and I've tried more than a dozen brands and formulations.
@theheroprojectuk VitC 30 is stable, does not stain or oxidise, and is potent enough to battle hyperpigmentation (30%!) successfully. Plus, it's #crueltyfreebeauty
