Beauty Empties #1

Confession. I’m becoming more addicted to skin care and beauty products than ever before. Whenever I enter a chemist, supermarket, department store or beauty related shop I feel the need to buy something to add to my growing collection. This week alone I’ve purchased two kinds of face masks, a new night cream, rose hip oil, organic cleanser and toner, tinted lip balm, mascara, cleansing wipes, tinted moisturiser and make up pads!

I forgot how easy it is to make your own natural stuff, plus it’s a good way to use up random food products like that Greek yoghurt you purchased for a recipe and used one teaspoon of!
