Finishing off a beauty product – or seven – is always a bittersweet experience. On the one hand, I”m usually at least a little bit sad to have finished it (otherwise I probably wouldn’t have bothered polishing it off, to be honest), and on the other, I’m thrilled to have actually reached the end of …

I admit that, back in the day, when I first started using any kind of real skincare ‘routine’, I used to think that cleanser and toner were pretty much the same thing.

Do you ever reach that stage where all of your favourite beauty products run out at the same time?! This has happened to me on so many occasions and, while it’s annoying, it provides a somewhat handy opportunity to really see which products qualify for that ‘can’t live without’ status. All of these products have …
