Back to Basics: Skincare

I have recently started using a cleansing balm in the evenings to remove my make-up instead of using a face wash (again I was inspired by Caroline Hirons' blog). To really do a good cleanse and exfoliate a little I have been using face cloths to wipe away the cleansing balm with warm water. 

Implementing a proper skin care routine hasn't actually felt like a chore as you might think, it is more relaxing and pampering - a nice treat when I get home after a busy day! 

Anyway, I know that Primark flannels are recommended as you can get three for £1.50 and it doesn't matter that they are so cheap, they need to be machine washable. I found some even cheaper ones at Wilkinsons which are only 30p each - they are 100% cotton so they are soft enough for daily use. I ordered 15 online (and picked up in store for free) - this will mean I have enough for two weeks before I run out. I would definitely recommend picking some of these up, they are great value.


  1. What cleansing balm have you been using? I am really enjoying the Emma Hardie one just now but im curious to know if there is anything cheaper out there? xxxxxxx

    1. The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter, it has a lovely texture and smells so good. I like the way that it melts and you only need a little amount. Is the Emma Hardie one good?
