Whilst I was on holiday, my skin was very, very happy - all I used was coconut oil for cleansing, and goodness is that stuff some kinda magic! The tub of solid coconut oil that I tool away (God knows why I took it away - Sri Lanka is the home of coconut oil!) became the most liquidy liquid I have ever seen in my life - thank you heat! And so, to avoid a Ross-from-friends-shampoo-explosion-situation I left it for my cousin in the heat.
As I am skincare mad, I browse skincare wherever I go, and treated myself to ____ Papaya Enzyme Cleanser and Toner, and so far I am loving them! I use one pump in the morning to refresh my slept-in face, and 2 pumps of an evening to get rid of all traces of make-up, including heavy eyeliner and mascara. The foam is luxuriously soft, almost to the point that you don't know if it really exists at all, and smells comfortingly to me of a cleanser an ex-colleague used to use on me before a glycolic peel.
In terms of other skincare, I'm trying the less is more approach - not something that I am famed for at all: Kiko's ___, Atom's Sun Beige SPF50+ and Hydrocortisone cream used for the eczema that is appearing under my eyes.
And that is more or less it! Let's see how long I can last sticking to a simple routine - I am already craving a cleansing balm to add to the routine, but can't decide which to go for!
Love Ani x
