Wow: I am loving my skin today. This is not always something that I find myself saying.
*Just had to note that my lovely, ex-public school boyfriend is currently singing along to Beyonce's 'Me, Myself and I' that's on his iPod and getting really into the high bits - hilarious and adorable*
Anyway, the Dermalogica I used yesterday has worked wonders on my skin. We went out for dinner this evening and I used mascara, eyeshadow, eyeliner, a bit of concealer, blush and lipstick. Notice anything missing there? Yes, I didn't use any base at all. Not even a lick of tinted moisturiser, and I can't believe it. I thought I'd test it out and was amazed that my skin could carry it off. I have only word: YEY!
This morning, I used their Extra Firming Booster, a product that felt like it was working straight away. It needed to be worked in, as it almost felt like it was trying to vanish into my skin as soon as I applied it. For the whole day, my skin has felt plump and springy, but with no tightness at all. I followed with Active Moist, and I am absolutely convinced that I will be buying a Dermalogica moisturiser as soon as I finish my Crema Nera.
It's so funny that I always go to Dermalogica for facials, love the results and then never think to bring the range home with me. Project Samples has shown me the light, and my birthday list is quickly filling up with their products.
And our meal tonight was absolutely delicious. We went to a local bistro that specialises in classic British dishes in a really luxurious environment, and I am contemplating just letting them cook for me the rest of my life. I have been feeling a little under the weather this weekend, and fancied something really comforting and I plumped for something that, bizarrely, I've never eaten before: chicken kiev. Lordy, it was fantastic! Plus, it came with the crispiest, yummiest fries I've ever eaten. Mmm, I want more! Hope you've all had a fantastic weekend: work tomorrow and the one thing I'm most excited about: the forecast predicts rain! This little Mancunian is way overdue a good watering!
