    If you were compiling your ultimate skincare hamper, what 5 items would you place in it??

    Now, I am a cheapy when it comes to skin care, due to my lack of money so I have never really tried and cooed over expensive skin care so mine would include the following:

    1. St Ives Apricot Scrub as sometimes even this is outside my money capabilities
    2. Vitamin E body lotion. My mum used it religiously, I used it religiously in turn but recently haven’t been able to afford it :(
    3. Clinique All About Eyes. Used this for ages as my mum didn’t want it and loved it. Yet another thing I can afford right now D:
    4. Mudd Masks. Love these, always use it at least once a week, I’d love if they did a big pot of it I would definitely pop that in my hamper.
    5. Champneys Foot Cream. My mum has a big pot, I steal some every now and then and its like magical cream for my feet!! Love it!!

    Haha my list is pretty rubbish but I did a bit of everything!! RTed you as well!!

    ? The Face Shop White Mud Nose Pack ?
    This nose pack comes in a tube, and the product squeezes out with a white gooey consistency. You apply the product on dry cleansed nose, let it dry for about 20 minutes, then peel off. Same with the nose strip, all the impurities and gunk from your pores are suppose to stick to the pack as it dries and be pulled off with it.

    ? Celeteque Gentle-Exfoliating Wash ?
    It is a yellowish liquid with yellow and red beads floating on it. I like the feel of the beads on my face. It feels relaxing and I feel that my pores are being swept off of dirt. The first thing I noticed about it was that it had little beads which I had fun rolling around on my face. Sometimes I would gather more of the beads and concentrate massaging them on the sides of my nose where my pores are most noticeable. It did feel gentle on the face as the beads were so small and I’d like to imagine that the vitamin C and E beads in the product were also doing their work as I massaged.

    ? Laneige Strawberry Yogurt Peeling Gel ?
    It smells so yummy and it does work in removing dead skin cells, the exfoliating enzyme contained in the red capsule helps to gently remove dead cells deeply buried in the skin, facilitating turnover of the skin and making it vital and healthy.

    ? Korres lip butters ?
    i love Jasmine, i got mine from Ezzie: http://rhaindropz.onsugar.com/love-package-from-Ezzie-Ezziebell-Jewelry-9720547

    ? Wine Peeling Softener of Innisfree ?
    a Korean Product im loving at the moment.. i bought mine from Lizz: http://rhaindropz.onsugar.com/im-loving-Wine-Peeling-Softener-Innisfree-10050989
