If you have been a reader of my blog for a while you will know that my skin is prone to spots. I dunno if it’s because I started puberty early but all these years later and I still get these pesky buggers on my face.
So I thought I’m going to make a box for when my skin is bad and then don’t have to hunt for all the products, they’ll all be in one place.
Using an old box from Birchbox and turned it upside down so the names on the bottom and filled it with the following
The Tea Tree anti imperfection daily solution which has a pipette ( like those things you used in chemistry at school) you just apply it to the spots before bed and it will help diminish the redness of them.
The anti imperfection night mask works like a dream. I have been using it this month on my face which chose to have a major break out. I’ve had it for ages and never used it. I can say my spots are nearly gone in 4 days of usage.
I love it when spot treatments come in travel sizes cos you can just put them in your handbag and off you go.
The Sebamed is really good if you need to get the oil on your face and under control. Not used it a great deal but definitely worth getting.
You all know that Dermalogica is a worldwide favourite for skincare and this little beauty is great for when you get hormonal spots, it seems to help them alot.
This Laidbare is similar to the Sebamed but is more of a cream. It’s specially formulated for oily to combo skin. Use it sparingly and it’ll last a long time.
Sudocrem has to be my absolute favourite for clearing up my spots. I dunno what’s in it but it works wonders and is only a couple of pounds.
I have only just added these patches and nose strips from Patchology to my box and not used them yet but I have read good things about them so I hope it’s true.
Why not make yourself a special box
For the past 3 months I have been subscribed to Latest in beauty
Which is not like any normal subscription box you get to pick the products that you want to receive.
So here’s my video I recorded yesterday when it came via Mr Postie
Let me know what you think and also do you get a subscription box each month, I’d love to know.
The last Favourites of the year. I really do like looking at all the previous months as well and see what made me happy.
I’ll leave the previous 11 at the bottom of this post if you want to have a nosey.
Here is some of Decembers bits that have made me happy.
ALIEN PERFUME DEODORANT
I never knew that I could get my favourite perfume in a deodorant/body spray until I was nosing on the perfume shop website and there it was. For 100ml it’s just perfect to fit inside a handbag. Smells beautiful. I am forever getting compliments on the scent, so it’s a no brainer to at least go get a spray of it yourself at your local chemist.
Most of you would’ve seen me wearing a couple of wigs as I’m a bit fed up of the length it is so until it’s a bob style I’ll be wearing one of my 3 wigs. This is the one I love at the moment, it is very me as I love pink.
I have had an iPad for a year or so now, but I now have a pencil I can use to draw on it, a cheaper one than the Apple Pencil so I needed a cover that would keep it with the iPad so this is it. It’s very girly and practical. I love it.
DIARY AND JOURNAL
Both of these are from Paperchase, one was a gift (the 5 mins before bed) and then i bought the pink one (one day one question). I love a diary/journal to write in…it’s just remembering to do it everyday. So these will be in eyeshot so I make them a habit to do.
These have always been the ones I reach for out of all the Haribo sweets. But it’s been about 20 years that I’ve been calling them Tangfantastics until a few days ago I spotted its Tanfastics 🙈
I heard this song on the radio one evening in bed and thought it was so lovely. The original is of course great but I thought Celine Dions voice was so pure.
This is a quote to remind all that the best thing you need to try and be is yourself.

My skin is sensitive, dry and prone to spots so I need to pay attention to all the goings on of my face.
Olay has me covered with these 3 and it didn’t leave me out of pocket.
I’m pretty sure it was a 3 for 2 at boots so it was a win win all round.
At night I will use the beauty fluid to give my skin just enough moisture but not too much that it gets on my pillow.
Then in the morning I use my olay daily facials as they get off any dirt from overnight and I feel they help get rid of my dry areas in the process.
Then before I do my make up I use the day cream. It also acts as a primer too so it’s a perfect base for my foundation.
The worst thing I get if I don’t prep my skin before make up is dry skin underneath my foundation and nothing looks worse than that when every other part of your made up face looks lovely.
Thanks for stopping by

Home bargains reusable face pads are a bargain and they are saving the planet at the same time.
Washing machine safe and can be reused again and again.
Use them like you would a normal cotton wool pad and then rinse well. It’s up to you how often you use it before you decide to bung it into the machine.
They come in a pack of 4 so you won’t be left without one.
You can also get them in bulk on the likes of amazon and they look just like cotton wool pads as they are white. But I like my colourful ones. Call me crazy but a bit of colour adds a bit of fun to your skincare routine.
