Plus 40 Fabulous April Edition

Hello and welcome to this months edition of Plus 40 Fabulous and the theme for this month is skin care.
Now that I am in my forties I realise how important it is to look after your skin (I should have realised this when I was younger!!). I know that unless I have plastic surgery or botox the wrinkles aren't going to disappear but then I don't think I would want them to as after all they tell the story of my life.

These are my daily cleansing and ex foliating products.

Ever since I discovered it I have been a huge fan of the Garnier Micellar Water, and whilst I know some people advise you should use it with other cleansers I find it gets my skin really clean and my breakouts have almost stopped since I started using it. If I have had a heavy make up day then I also use the Garnier 2 in 1 make- up remover which makes quick work of eye make up removal and doesn't pull at my skin.
The Dermalogica ex-foliant  I don't use everyday as I don't think my skin would stand it but instead I use it a few times a week especially on my nose and my skin feels so soft afterwards. I got this in a goody bag from a event and I am tempted to purchase it once this runs out. It comes as a powder which you mix with water on your hand to make a paste and apply to your face.

For moisturisers I use...

My daily ones are the Witch Overnight Clearing Serum, this is really meant for overnight use but I pop it on under my moisturiser as it helps with any blemishes. I then apply Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream which I got as perk from Klout and I must admit that although it is expensive I would be very tempted to purchase another one once this runs out. I have suffered with a terrible dry patch on my forehead and this has finally sorted it out. I also find it light enough to not give me breakouts and it makes a good base for my make-up.
For night time I have started using a Superdrug Optimum Comforting Night Cream which is recommended for 40+ skin and I do notice a difference in the morning as my skin feels so soft.

For primers I use..

The N-Spa Instant Blur Primer I first became aware of when I got it in a goody bag from an event and I was so taken with it that when it ran out I bought another one. A little goes along way but my skin feels like silk when I use this. I also use the Me Me Me Seventh Heaven facebase as a primer, it has the most heavenly smell of oranges and again a little goes a long way. It is only in the last year or so that I have started using Primers and they do make a difference.

So there you have it that, my skin care routine which I realise I now need to add something with SPF in it as well for sun protection so that is next on my list!!

Not bad for a nearly 41 year old!!

Don't forget to check out the other ladies to see what they use.
