Review: Dove foaming makeup remover

Clean and healthy skin is Happy skin that glows, as featured in ViVi January 2011 magazine.

I cannot stress the importance of a good skincare regime to remove all makeup and impurities after a long day or night. And a facial cleanser itself is NEVER enough.

You have to use a good eye makeup remover that also removes waterproof mascara but at the same time does not irritate your eyes or your skin, a secondary makeup remover for the entire face and finally a facial cleanser suited to your skin type.

My skin is normal in the warmer months and combination in the cooler months and I adjust my products accordingly.

Right now, I am loving L'Oreal Dermo-Expertise Gentle Lip & Eye makeup remover, it is a no fail for smudge proof eyeliner and waterproof eye makeup. Always remove eyemakeup with gentle wipes (love Johnson & Johnson pads as they don't lint) and DO NOT pull on the delicate skin around the eyes. Hold a remover drenched pad over each eye for 5 SECONDS and gently wipe off. Next use a cotton bud soaked with remover to remove bits that still require cleaning.

Secondly, use 3 pumps of the Dove Foaming Makeup Remover on DRY HAND AND DRY SKIN. Move in small outward circles over every area and every nook and cranny of your face and neck. Rinse off with tepid water (never hot or cold).

Finally, using a small amount of face cleanser, repeat the above step and rinse off.

Gently dab skin dry with a soft towel.

Pat on your toner (Nivea Young and apply a good quality moisturiser (I'm currently using Jurlique Herbal Recovery and Jurlique Balancing Day Cream).

Are you doing this currently? I finally started to do so and my skin is actually more radiant and my pores smoother than before (they were hideous prior and I couldn't understand why face srcubs did nothing)

Try it and let me know the results after a week >_^ xxx

Meet Blair,

My ash blonde bob wig from the Raquel Welch range. I am really loving short bobs and shaggy styles, they seem to make me look much younger than my 27 years *winkwink*

I suppose short hair lifts your features and has much more movement in it, hence portraying vitality and hence youth, whereas long hair is more sensual and romantic and can be dragging on the face if not styled well.

*sigh* I sure do miss my long long long hair though! I miss putting it up in a bun with my 2 prong hair comb and then letting if tumble down again.  But thats the past........and this is now!

My new lace front wig from eBay

Lacefront wigs celebs like are meant to give you that natural hairline that Tyra Banks and Beyonce have with their wigs.

But the main problem with these gorgeous hair accesories is that they can cost up to $1000 just for a basic medium length one, synthetic hair too (which, btw is much better than human hair as you won't have to style it everytime you wear it).

So, I'd try one out from eBay for less than $40. The lacefront turned out to be slightly darker than my skin color so I trimmed it back to the hairline, but the haircolor and style I just LOVE!
