It's time to take care of my skin...for real

If I scrolled through my blog, holding a shot glass and a bottle of Vodka, and took a shot every time I mentioned in a blog post that I was going to start really looking after my skin, I'd be drunk....very drunk. But this time, I really mean it, mainly because I have found some products that I just bloody love using. 



When I was on my Thomas Cook flight at the start of the month, I was browsing through the on-board duty free magazine, as you do, and spotted a Clinique Moisture Surge kit for something super cheap like £36. I'd decided before the plane had even left the runway that I was going to be making a purchase, along with the Emma Hardy Cleansing Balm which they had on offer too. My decision was set in stone when the flight attendant announced that everything in the in-flight magazine was an extra 20% off too! I therefore paid just under £30 for this set, which includes the Moisture Surge Cream, the Moisture Surge Hydrating Mist, and the All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage (which was amazing post-flight!)



I have to say, the cream feels super luxurious to use. I would describe it as more like a gel, and my skin feels insanely plump after using this, and I can honestly say when I put this on in the evenings, I wake up in the morning with naturally dewy skin, and you can just tell it is super hydrated. It's not an 'oily-dew' (if that even makes sense), but just a gorgeous radiance. I'm praying that this cream lasts me ages, as the full size is over £30 on its own *cries*. 


In this hot weather, the moisturising mist has been an absolute life saver. When I'm feeling a little hot and sticky, I've been spraying this on my face and it's an absolute dream - definitely not what it is intended for though. During the day, if your skin is feeling a little tight and dry, the spray is meant to help hydrate the skin, making it perfect for commuters and people on the go (I don't know about anyone else, but commuting has really taken its toll on my skin!).

I do have to say though, my absolute favourite thing in the box was the All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage. It comes in one of those pen-like tubes with a metal ball at the end to help with the de-puffing of eyes. I suffer with ridiculous dark circles, its a hereditary thing so nothing really helps, but I find that when I am tired they are obviously made ten times worse. Using anything cooling under the eyes, I find, really helps, and using this in the morning has been helping me to wake up before my travel into work.


Have you guys tried any of the Moisture Surge range? There was such a huge hype about it a few months ago, with loads of huge bloggers going on a trip with Clinique for the range, and I guess I was sucked in by the good price and vlogs!
