If you are feeling a little miserable this may well cheer you up.
In the very early hours of this morning I over estimated the width of my bed and fell out, in a last ditch attempt to save myself from bumping my head I tried (and I say tried) to stop myself with my arm.
Well said arm was having none of it and popped out of its socket (eww I know) and I had to get it popped back in while in my PJ's...my Winnie the Pooh PJ's that were never intended for public viewing.
Woe is my life and now you all fully understand why I do not vlog - it would be like some poorly scripted Scottish sitcom.
As my arm is a little tender lifting a bulky camera is not high on my agenda so until the mighty morphin' painkillers kick in (maybe they have a little as I am quoting the Power Rangers) I thought I'd share my current skin care wish list. My skin is dire at the moment and I mean dire - it has to be hormonal as nothing has really changed in terms of lifestyle or routine. Anyway here is what I am lusting for and why...
1 and 2, I will be the first to admit that I don't often use a toner but I have read that using a hydrating toner such as MD Moisture Defence Antioxidant Spray altered nightly with an exfoliating toner such as Pixi Glow Tonic can really do wonders for the skin. At this point I'll try anything and the moisture boost will be much needed come the colder weather and exfoliating really helps keep my Milia in check.
You can find the MD Moisture Defence Antioxidant Spray here - link but you will have to mail order or pop into the Pixi Store to purchase the Glow Tonic.
3, I am convinced I can see wrinkles forming before my very eyes and the two places that concern me most is my forehead (I tend to raise my eyebrows a lot and as a result have created a frown line) and my eye area. This months treat to myself will be the Origins Start Over Moisturiser and Eye Cream hopefully they can help prevent any lines from becoming trench like.

4, My enlarged pores are the bane of my existence, I have considered going for chemical peels that promise to reduce them but the truth is I am terrified that something will go wrong. You only get one face and I simply am not brave enough to mess around with chemical peels at this point. Anyway I have read great things about REN's Multi-Mineral Pore Minimising Detox Mask (aka No Pores or Invisible Pore Mask). I'm not looking for a miracle but anything that can deep cleanse and prevent my pores from clogging warrants a purchase in my case.

5, My eyes are fairly sensitive and don't always enjoy my newest mascara or eye cream for that matter so with that in mind I have been eyeing (pun fully intended) up Clarins Skin Smoothing Eye Mask. It soothes, it cools and it calms making it perfect for irritable eyes.

6, Continuing on with my love for all things Clarins I have decided that my next scrub will be none other Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract. Gentle yet gets the job done and again will help my skin in the quest of being Milia free.

7, My love for Aurelia Probiotic Miracle Cleanser is deep, nothing and I mean nothing can replace it in my book. It is gentle yet effective and the entire time I used it my skin was never better - it glowed, it was blemish free and generally just in a better state. I plan on repurchasing this as a matter of urgency!

8, Last but not least I have one other Origins product that I will be making space for on my bathroom shelf any day now and that is the Origins Out of Trouble Mask. I have heard that this not only calms and soothes the skin but can help banish pesky blemishes too. In fact I may just purchase this today as I have to go to Boots this afternoon...whoops!
