Not a compliment fishing post- I promise!
I was flicking through my phone,heaps of pics of my hubby,my son Harry,places we’ve been recently etc. The last selfie I took was a month ago. Now, I am sure to most that doesn’t seem like a long time but to me,it is. I looked I the mirror this morning, I saw the dry skin under my nose,(I currently have a cold) the slight crinkling around the eyes,the list goes on.
I was not feeling #selfieworthy.
In between nappy changes,dummy spits and numerous bottles, I managed to squeeze a little maintenance time.
Now, #selfieworthy is not about picking yourself apart,more about doing a few little things to build yourself up,feel great and share it with the world.
A double cleanse,maybe a 5 minute face mask. Maybe a longer conditioner treatment or a whitening toothpaste. All little things,easy to complete and quick!
Thrifty: Cetaphil Gentle Skin cleanser. 125mls. $10. Easy to use,fragrance free and soothing. I would recommend this to practically everyone.
Splurge: Perricone MD Hypoallergenic Gentle Cleanser. 237mls $35. I know that there are many great skincare lines out there. I believe that Dr Perricone does really understand the science of skin.
Thrifty: Montagne Jeunesse VeryBerry mask. 15g $4.00. One time packet,splodge on,let it set and rinse.
Splurge: Perricone MD concentrated restorative Treatment. 59ml $115. Not one for just splodging on but it’s one dreamy treatment.
Conditioning hair treatment
Thrifty:Schwarzkopf Extra care ultimate repair anti damage mask. 250mls $4.50
I like that my hair afterwards didn’t feel heavy just well nourished.
Splurge:Fekkai Technician Colour Care mask. 220g $25 (US) This is STILL the best hair mask I’ve ever used. You can leave it in for as little as 60 seconds.In Australia it was $60! So get online and grab a tub.
Thrifty: Kemphor White toothpaste. 75mls. 3€
A Euro pharmacy staple,I only tried it recently and I am in love. Gentle minty flavour and makes your teeth feel polished-not squeaky. It’s Spanish made too. Check it out online.
Splurge: Theodent 300 whitening crystal mint. 75mls $100.
I am yet to try it,but at a $100 bucks a tube,it has to be good-right?!
I finish with a lip scrub with a baby toothbrush for good measure and I was feeling #selfieworthy again.
Love and lipstick.
