Recently I have started trying other skin care products, not to replace my routine, but to add to it.

Like with all products that I want to try, I researched it, watched YouTube video reviews, read blogs etc and thought I probably needed to wait until my current toner runs out (Clinique Step 2) as that's an exfoliating one also.

The Christmas break from dancing may only be a few weeks, but it always feels like alot longer! Perhaps in the Summer (which is a longer break), days are busier entertaining the kids, working and generally just trying to get out and about so the time passes quite quickly enjoying the sunny days whilst they … Continue reading Woohoo!
