skincare essentials

GARNIER SUMMER BODY MOISTURISING LOTION IN DARK/NIVEA DAILY ESSENTIALS OIL-FREE MOISTURISER/SOAP AND GLORY 'THE RIGHTEOUS BUTTER/TESCO CUCUMBER CLEANSING WIPES/NEUTROGENA VISIBLY CLEAR 2-IN-1 WASH MASK/NEUTROGENA VISIBLY CLEAR PINK GRAPEFRUIT DAILY SCRUB
Hey ladies (and possibly some gents?). Yes, I am still alive, I've just been spending my days and some of my nights revising and cramming and highlighting as much as possible for my GCSE's which begin on Monday! I have approximately 14 exams between now and the end of June so it's not going to be the most exciting few weeks, but the long, lazy summer holidays that follow are going to be the definition of incredible - I have some great plans made already! 
This is just a speedy post to show you some of my skincare essentials - I did a similar one on makeup here. Having unpredictable teenage skin is, of course, a nightmare, but with these products I tend to be able to keep things under control (although I am having an AWFUL skin week at the moment, most probably brought on by exam stress - any miraculous spot remedies would be welcome!). I've also included my favourite self-tanning product - not that I've tried many - which I tend to use in the week leading up to a particular event or occasion at which I want to look nice and sunkissed. I've never actually braved real fake tan - I'm so paranoid of looking streaky! 


Also, I would be extremely grateful if some of you could have a click on the Cosmo banner on the right >> and nominate me for a Cosmo blog award! It would be so exciting to be nominated and I would be so incredibly grateful.


Hopefully I will get the opportunity to do an outfit post this weekend, if I decide to wear something nicer than the sweatshirt and trackies combo I've been sporting all week.. 
Good luck to those of you with revision and exams! 


xoxo

Lovely post! Can you tell me how good the summer body moisturising is? I have a very pale skin and I wouldn't like to look orange :/

Nominated you under "new fashion blogger" under a year, hope that's good :)

Love the Garnier summer body, definitely one of the best gradual tanners out there. I've just picked up the Sally Hansen airbrush legs as it's on offer in boots at the moment, hopefully that'll be good too! Good luck for your GCSE's, my final AS level exam is on Tuesday so yours are starting just as mine finish xx

try steaming your face and then scrubbing it, usually opens your pores and helps to clear my skin! xxx
