Summer Skincare Wishlist

I have a feeling that every blog post you have read this week will have started with this same sentence… but I’m gonna say it anyway.

HOW THE HECK IS IT JUNE ALREADY?!?!?!?!??!?!

DIDN’T I JUST UPLOAD A POST ABOUT WINTER BLUES???? 
(Well it may feel that way because I haven’t posted in a few months but shh, nobody has to know about that.) 

I’m not sure if you feel this way or if it is just me being super weird… but if I watch or read about peoples ‘Skincare Routines’ it instantly makes me want to go out and buy lots of different skincare products.

Alas, a trip to Florida in September is stopping me from impulse buying ALL THE LOTIONS but it isn’t stopping me from showing you guys what products are currently on my ever growing list! 

I've never ever used an eye cream/serum in my life but I suffer with really bad bags under my eyes and I've heard nothing but good things about this, so this one had to go straight in my (hypothetical) basket!

Last Christmas (I gave you my heart) I got given a Clinique Gift Set which had lots of 'minis' in and I loved every single one! I have seen this cleansing oil on so many Youtube reviews and I would love to give it a try, knowing that I already love a lot of Clinique's other products! 

I'm not gonna lie, this brand scares me. I don't mean this in a bad way at all but the shops are always so POSH and the price tags are so high and I never feel like I fit in... but that's my problem, not theirs! I would love to just walk into a Kiehl's shop with a purse full of money and ask them to give me ALL THE THINGS! 
This product is supposed to work overnight and replenish the skin while you sleep... which is something I definitely need because you do not wanna see me first thing in the morning. Trust me. 

This one has been on my wishlist since my birthday last August, and I am still yet to try it! 
First of all, I love this packaging and I've been drawn to it ever since I first saw it. Second of all, it's had amazing reviews and I very rarely use a toner so I feel like if I had this, I'd use it all of the time! 

I saw this on FreddyMyLove Youtube channel and if I'm being honest, I didn't even know that Bare Minerals did products like this. I thought it was just make up (is this really stupid of me or...?) 
Apparently, this sinks into the skin SO fast and it is supposed to be a 'bare faced' product so that it feels like you have nothing on the skin, but it's doing all of the good jobs that a moisturiser should do! 

Again, back to Clinique because I know that I love this brand! This moisturiser can be used daily, morning and night or can also be used as a face mask which is 3 products for the price of one! I would love to try this as it is supposed to plump up your skin from within the first use.

Well, it wouldn't be a wishlist without putting and extremely ridiculously high priced product on here, would it? 
This product is supposed to be amazing, but is it amazing enough to justify the price? I really really hope that I get to find out one day! 

What do you currently use for your skincare routine? Have you tried any of these products? 
Let me know! 

Lots of love.
Kirsty

Is anyone else sick of dark mornings? Driving home from work in PITCH BLACK!! I want daylight back, please!! 

I love the Christmas period but once that's over, nope, I'm done.

The dark nights and cold weather can make you feel a bit gloomy, especially if you’re already not in a great mood! I’ve compiled a little list of all of my favourite things to do when I’m feeling a bit down. 

Here are my Little Pick-Me-Ups.

'Kirsty, are you seriously writing a post about Highlighters? Don't you think there are enough of those in the Blogging Universe?' 

YES, YES I AM WRITING ABOUT HIGHLIGHTERS. You know why? Because these are my TOP 5 HIGHLIGHTERS of all time and I feel like I'd be doing the world an injustice if I didn't talk to you about them. 

Okay, maybe i'm exaggerating a bit there... but whether you prefer splurging for some high end make up or you love collecting 'High Street,' I believe that I have the Top 5 Highlighters suitable for all budgets.
