Skincare wishlist


I'm in the market for some new skincare!

This is what I'm lusting after at the moment.




I suffer really badly from eczema around my eyes and while the flare ups never really last too long, they leave my skin in such a terrible condition for so long afterwards that I actually question which is worse.
I currently look like I've aged about 50 years due to the condition of the skin under my eyes and on my eyelids - it's so dry and almost scaly and wearing makeup just accentuates it! Ugh.
I've heard really good things about this eye cream from Clinique and while it's quite pricey, I can't really put a price on making my skin look like that of a 20 year old again so it's worth a try.


Just about every skincare brand out there is releasing some kind of cleansing water after the world went wacky for BioDerma.
I tried L'oreal's micellar water and was so disappointed - I have a review of that one coming up so I won't go into too much detail but it felt like it sucked whatever moisture I did have in my skin right out and wasn't going to give it back!
People seem to really be raving about this one though! You get double the amount of this than you do the L'oreal and it's the same price.
That seems like a no-brainer to me, non?!



I missed the bandwagon when it came to trying out La Roche-Posay products and I've still not done it! Silly me.
I have done a lot of reading about them though, and I think this would be the perfect way to get into the brand.
As I said before, my skin is very very dry not only around my eyes, but around my mouth, on my forehead and just generally everywhere really.
At £16.50 this isn't the most inexpensive moisturiser but I'm starting to think that you get what you pay for with skincare and I'm willing to fork out a little more for a product that will really work. Fingers crossed.
