Well it has been a busy few weeks here what with numerous end of term activities, No 1 completing his degree & getting a job, No 4 having her 8th birthday and lots of planning and organising as we are shortly going to be heading off to China for a few weeks to attend my brothers wedding.
Amongst all of the chaos, myself and the girls have been busy trying to ensure that we look our best for the wedding. The girls will be bridesmaids and are really looking forward to wearing their handmade Chinese dresses but it wasn’t so simple for me! After numerous unsuccessful online purchases I have finally found a dress and shoes that meet all of the Chinese customs (red for luck – no white or black) and doesn’t make me look like a strawberry!. (If you are interested I have ended up with this dress and matching shoes from Boden) All I need to do now are the finishing touches such as a hair cut and sorting out my nails which I am planning to get done over the weekend.
I suffer from very dry skin and am usually utterly rubbish at following any kind of skincare routine so I have been making a special effort over the last few weeks. Having used up all of my Elemis goodies I have been using a Sanctuary Spa Youth Boosting Facial in a Box kit that I won in another competition a while ago but hadn’t got around to using.
The kit contains a Time Reverse Face mask, Lift and Brighten Eye Complex, Youth Firming Serum, Stop the Clock moisturiser and warming microbrasion polish.
The microbrasion polish is brilliant for me as it removes all of the dead, dry skin and combined with the other products my skin is definitely feeling a lot smoother and looking much less like a beetroot! The moisturiser is great as my face is the only part of me that burns in the sun but ordinary sunscreens leave my face feeling greasy.
As I will be away for a few weeks I wanted to leave you with a giveaway so I have another box of Sanctuary Spa Youth Boosting Facial in a Box to give away.
