My new obsession :)

Aeria Skin Intensive Hydrating Masks Sheet masks are my new skincare obsession! They are capable of providing maximum hydration with minimal time and effort. However, to be brutally honest I have had difficulties in the past with application. A reoccurring theme/problem is their size, which are more often than not way too big for my face and rather than hug my skin and contours, just simply hang off. So you can imagine my excitement and surprise when the Aeria mask adhered snugly to my face; no excess bits of material waving in the breeze......... Yay, at last!!! The material is 100% organic cotton; the consistency is fine but more importantly, resilient. Aeria masks incorporate certifie

The masked assassin!

I wanted to post something a little different today, so rather than a review I thought that perhaps I'd show you today's budget mammoth face mask routine!

I've used several different face oils over the past few years; each with their own unique benefits and textures. My preference is an oil that is light, easily absorbed and that balances my temperamental skin. It took me decades to truly understand the benefits of using an oil on an already oily skin!

Eye creams! .........Umm a point of contention for me!! Unfortunately I'm always left disappointed by them with their apparent ability to tackle all types of issues: lines, puffiness, dark circles etc. My main concern is hydration and I've always believed this to be the ultimate key to a good conditioned skin.

My personal eye cream goal is to find one that intensely hydrates without causing puffiness
