Clinique Even Better Makeup

jodie / 24th February 2013

I used to wear the old version of Rimmel’s “25 hour Foundation”, but the new one just doesn’t cut it – it makes my skin feel clogged and goes all powdery after a few hours. I’ve found it really difficult to find a decent foundation after getting eczema around my eyes – it’s now under control, but I still have…

jodie / 3rd February 2013

This is a lovely cleanser, made from natural ingredients (and it’s Lush, so you know it’s not tested on animals). The consistency, at first, was a little alien to me – fresh and crumbly, not gloopy and runny like most scrubs or foaming cleansers. I put this down to the fact that it’s all natural and has no preservatives (which…
