Weekly Routine & Beauty Swatch Giveaway

Here's my weekly routine for my face: Two times a week, I use a nourishing/moisturising mask, either in wash-off form or sheet mask. And once a week, I use a deep cleansing mask. Currently I'm using masks such as these: 015copy 014copy 013copy I exfoliate my face once a week with a gentle exfoliator. I like Cure, that I reviewed before. I'm not so keen on abrasive exfoliators, but those such as The Body Shop Blue Corn mask and Honey & Oat are ok for me. blog 014copy Contrary to popular belief, I find that my skin becomes bumpy and rough, when I exfoliate too much. It's because my face becomes over-sensitive and too dry as a result of removing too much of the protective layer of skin. I also find that even if I have pimples during PMS, my skin benefits from hydrating masks. The pimples heal faster and have I experience less scaring. BeautySwatch is having a giveaway. I saw it via Fuz's blog and I had to join. :D It's fun. I plan to do a giveaway myself, closer to the year-end (maybe like a Christmas thing?) and I hope people will join. So, I want to join others' giveaways to lend my support. :D These are the giveaway rules: You must have a blog account and be a follower of BeautySwatch. Create a post on your blog & do three things:
  • Upload the competition poster on your blog post & link it to her giveaway post
  • Upload a photo of your lips wearing your favourite lipstick or lipgloss and specify the details / shade number of the lipstick or gloss.
  • Leave a comment on her giveaway post with a link to your entry
Here's a picture of me wearing one of my favourite glosses, Lunasol's EX08 from the 2009 Anniversary makeup set. blog 007copy Have fun and good luck! :D I also listed some items on my ebay. If you are interested in scrapbooking, stamping, doll and skincare stuff, you might want to check back there through this week, as I am working hard, listing all my goodies. :D I need to clear out some stuff because I've bought too much and I need to scale back on some of the stuff I've accumulated for my hobbies. :D Go buy my stuff here. Maybe prepare early for Christmas? :D Have a great week ahead! © Copyright. All rights reserved.

Great masks and serum! I agree with you that if I exfoliate more than twice a week, my skin gets bumpy--it's not happy at all.

Sexy lips!
