I was very impressed by the oil cleansing method, as raved about on MN a few months ago.

Have a search for it - it's incredible cheap and easy. Basically you ditch all your regular cleansers and just use a mixture of vegetable oil and castor oil. It sounds bonkers but it really works.

oil cleansing. i'm 29 too and my god i wish someone told me about oil cleansing years ago.

urg, I hate beauty flash balm, it makes me feel like I'm having hot flashes and panic attacks!

The first time i used it I thought I was having an allergic reaction - surely that can't be good for you? grin

boots protect and perfect serum
exfoliate once a week
moisturise even if you think you don't need to
lots of water

- 2 litre bottle of water every day will do more than any cream.... but
- Clarins Botanical Firming Lift serum pretty good for extra boost.

Ooo thankyou loads of advice. I shall atrap my water bottle to my side. shall look into chanel tinted moisturiser as the one i used did make me go orange! Shsll order some castor oil as it seems a bugger to get in town. Never heard of Dermalogica wheres the best place to get it?
