Thought it might be interesting to know what we're using to face the day....
Here's mine:

Wash with Lush Ultrabland (I'm a bit meh about this but will carry on using till it finishes)
Pixi Glow toner
(Floss teeth)
Vitamin C serum
(Brush teeth)
Vitamin E serum (Superdrug)
Aldi Caviar day cream (love this!)
Lip balm (currently body shop, but whatever's to hand)

Shower, brush teeth, deodorant, tinted moisturiser, mascara. 10 minutes max.

- Vichy Purete Thermale Fresh Cleansing Gel (it foams but doesn't have SLS)
- Superdrug Simply Pure Hydrating Serum
- Simple Kind to Skin+ Protecting Moisture Cream SPF30 UVA/UVB

Had this morning skincare for a few weeks - it seems to be working okay so far, touch wood, and my bank balance is happy! (I was using the Body Shop aloe cream cleanser with a flannel but think it was giving me spots.)

If I'm wearing makeup, my base is usually Bourjois CC cream and healthy balance powder. I mix it up on lips, cheeks and eyes. My mascara is currently Natural Collection because I'm stingy and it's cheap as chips, but tbh it's actually fine!

Whatever toothpaste and toothbrush has been on offer.

Mitchum deodorant.

brilliana where do you get your Sunday Riley from (assuming UK) - really want to try but it is £££££

BrillianaHarvey Tue 01-Nov-16 20:13:23

I do get it from Space Nk and consequently only have one kidney. However, who needs functioning internal organs when they can have smooth skin?

Mouth "what the fucking fuck" at the DCs who are pantless on the sofa with cocopops stuck to their faces at 8.17am when we're meant to leave at 8.10
Hand incapable DCs each item of clothing as they insist they are unable to find any uniform without parental help
Check hair and makeup in mirror, re-apply deodorant due to sweat-from-DCs-silliness
