The Cleansing Game Changer

When the new La Roche-Posay Make-Up Remover Micellar Water Gel popped through my letter box the other day, I didn’t really get it. It’s a micellar water but it’s a gel. You apply it to wet skin but you don’t rinse it off. I was confused straight away – the only thing to do was to try it out immediately! I love washing my face at the end of the day if my skin is behaving. If I’m having a bit of a bad time with my skin, taking my makeup off definitely isn’t my favourite time of the day but usually, if it’s behaving, I really enjoy the feeling of a freshly cleansed and moisturised face.

Shower Time With Dr. Do Good

Date Night Beauty Essentials

Stressing about a big date for Valentine’s Day? Don’t worry, here’s my last minute routine for relaxing and getting that perfect makeup look! Or, any of these gems could make amazing Valentine’s gifts for her.

When it comes to date night beauty, it has to be super pretty for me. This means glowing skin, a subtle smoky eye, a nude lip and tonnes of highlighter. So, how do I get ready for a big date night? First of all, it’s a relaxing bath where I’ll light a lovely smelling candle such as the Katie Loxton ‘Love’ Fig & Apple Blossom and maybe watch an episode of Grey’s Anatomy or some Lisa Eldridge makeup tutorials. I’ll use a body scrub such as the Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Body Polisher to get rid of any stubborn dry skin on knees or elbows. Moisturiser and a dab of Lancome Flash Bronzing Gel is next, especially if I’m wearing a dress or a skirt. I usually combine my self-tanner with a moisturiser for more of a glow than a full on tan, it’s a bit prettier and a lot more subtle.

I find that I always need a eye-corrector like this primer to get rid of any darkness, redness and discolouration. Even if I’m not wearing eyeshadow I’ll use this primer to smooth everything out.
