The luxe skincare every 30-something needs on their Christmas list

Skincare in winter? Can we not?! I mean, I spend all summer perfecting a gawjus healthy glow to then find once the heating goes on in September (sorry not sorry) my face just gives up and falls off. Often with a few spots thrown in and couple of extra lines around my ever-tired mum eyes.

Thanks life.

So anyway, this Autumn / Winter I made the decision that it was out with my trusty tub of Nivea (although I still love it) and in with something a bit more, well, hard-working and thirty-something appropriate. Either that or it’s time for a face full of botox…

So in the absence of botulism, I took a little trip to my baes in the Selfridges beauty hall at intu Trafford Centre to see what luxe skincare goodies I could pick up this Christmas and I settled on the beauties at Charlotte Tilbury. I think it’s all the rose gold – gets me every time.

Anyhoo, in the interest of market research and doing all of the hard work for you, I’ve now incorporated some of Charlotte’s cult skincare products into my skincare regime and




The results guys?

I literally feel like I have a new less lined and tired face.

So here it is for you and you and you – my thirty-something skincare regime, the luxe products on my Christmas wish list and all the whys and wherefores because mama? You are totally worth it.

Also you only get one face so you might as well take care of it. Just sayin’

Don’t judge but I genuinely used to go to bed with my makeup on and not care in my twenties. Ok, I judge me a little bit too.

Thirty-something skin isn’t going to hack that kind of “I’m so young and crease-free” approach so makeup is coming off every night no matter what now I’m in my thirties. In fact, just to make sure, I usually do this straight after putting Sophie to bed just so that my skin gets a really decent chance to breathe.

And that’s it really – If you do decide to go ahead and try the magic skincare trilogy of day, night and eye cream then there is a special offer on right now which gives you the magic eye cream for half price – Charlotte Tilbury The Magic Skin Triology Skincare Set and we all know how I love a bargain so this made me very happy.

If you are looking for a little bit of luxe for Christmas, then this would be the most beautiful gift set – send your alternative half over to my blog to read up on it and then drop MASSIVE hints their way along the lines of

“please can Santa bring me Charlotte’s magic skincare regime as I am now old and wrinkled”

Or I suppose you could treat yourself.

I’m not saying you NEED to take care of your skin, invest in I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E skincare or anything.

But I kind of am

Because sometimes you need to just do something for yourself.
