Going Make-Up Free!

For the first time EVER, I am confident enough in my skin to post a photo on my blog of my skin with no make-up!

I am a bit nervous, but here goes...

Excuse the wide-eyed expression - I took this at 7am this morning!

I never go bare-faced leaving the house - ever. I would rather wear no clothes out than go out without make-up! ;)

I'm so happy with how my skin is looking right now. Thanks to my Clarisonic & Liz Earle products, I seem to have found a combination of products that work for me (and that do actually work, rather than just claiming to).

Who knows, I might get the odd breakout, but right now my pores are smaller, I have a more even tone and all the little bumps I had under my skin have gone. It sucks to have bad skin at 28, but I hope it's finally behind me.

On another great note, I got an amazing bonus when I took out a subscription to ELLE magazine...

With last months' ELLE, there was a leaflet inside advertising their latest subscription gift: pay £10 by direct debit for 6 issues and receive a free Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Set worth £26.50! I only set up the direct debit last week and my set (above) arrived yesterday!

You get:

* Cleanse & Polish Starter Kit (100ml of C&P + 2x Muslin Cloths + bag)
* Cleanse & Polish (100ml)
* Pack of 2 Muslin Cloths
* Summer Newsletter (booklet shown above)

What a great subscription gift! I was amazed that it came with a total of 4 cloths, which is an amazing bonus. As I absolutely love this cleanser, I'm so pleased that I now have a stash of it to keep me going for the next couple of months :)

If you are in the UK and you want to get this great offer, just visit  There is no extra costs and if you want to continue receiving ELLE after the 6 months, you'll be billed just £18.24 every 6 issues (which still saves you 20% on the cost price of the magazine). I'm amazed that I received the gift so quickly - my direct debit won't be taken until the 6th June!

I hope you've got a lovely weekend planned x

  5. @Skin Scrubs... that's so kind :) I should, but I always feel self-conscious! x

  6. Thumbs up for posting makeup-less photos - and you look great! Such nice skin, I'm jealous :)

  7. @Summer... thank you :) I hate seeing photos of myself without make-up, so I must have been feeling brave when I decided to post the photo! ;) x
