My skin care routine

Hi everyone!
Today I would like to share with you my skin care routine. I'm not a cosmetic freak but my face is the most important part which I always try to keep in best condition. To be honest, I've got a lot imprefections on my face. When I was tenager, I've been thinking that would pass when I will be older, but it's not. Furthermore my skin is really oil last two years and I still try to fight with this problem as well. Matching cosmetics for my skin is therefore more difficult. But! I've always tried to keep my skin care simple. I'm not this kind of person who likes to have milions products. I'm rather minimalist.

In the evening first step is Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser. It's might be wird for some of you because I'm not using any make up remover before I wash my face. But I found it better for my skin that is why I always try to remove all my make up with hot cloth cleanser.

You can buy this product on sale for 5 pounds at Boots. I would reccomend this if you like hot cloth cleanser products. It's cheaper equivalent for Liz Earle.

Next step in my routine is micellar cleansing water from Garnier.

I'm always use this product to make sure that my make up was properly removed. Before, I used to use Loreal micellar water but now I wanted to try something different.

When my skin is already clean I apply night cream by Nivea. 

It's a anti-wrinkle product by for me prevention is better than cure even if I'm only 23 :)

And this is all for my evening routine. Now time for morning, which is even more simple than evening routine.

In the morning first step is a purifying. After all night with my night cream which is really nourishing,
I need to gently clean my face. The best product for that is La Roche Posay Effaclar gel for oily sensitive skin. When my skin is clean, I'm using La Roche Posay Serozinc which is great for cleansing and soothing my skin. 

And the last step of my morning skin care routine is hydrating cream Avene Hydrance Optimale.

That's the "big" secret of my skin care routine :) Of course I still test some new products but I didn't find anything better for now. I prefere to stick with my favourite products for longer. 
If you have used any of this products, let my know what you think about it. Share your tips how to "fight" with imperfections! :)

Traveling on budget

Hi guys!

Summer is already here that's why I decided to create post how to travel on budget. I would like to emphasize that I'm not an expert and everything what you will find in this post is my experience. 

1. Flight
Few months ago we flew to the Barcelona with my boyfriend. It was really spontaneous decision. We were thinking about small break few months. To be honest we haven't enough money to go on real, all inclusive holidays. Some day I found great website If you heve no specific plans where you want to go, that is the best idea. Visit this website and find cheap flight. Easy? In November, we found cheap flight to Barcelona. Our return tickets cost 35 pounds!

2. Accomodation
The next step was find some hotel. Try to book your stay in advance! This is really important for good prices. If you are a person who like to meet new people than good idea for you will be hostel. It's cheap because you pay just for bed. We stayed at hostel and paid 10 euro per person/night/bed. You can choose between 4 beds room up to 12 beds room. More beds in the room than cheaper. If you travel with friends that might be one of the economy option for you. Hostel which we stayed in was Urbany Hostel. I wouldn't recommend this place to be honest just because of lazy and not really friendly staff. But there is a lot of different, great hostels which are still cheap! 

3. Plan
If you travel somewhere you should ask yourself what you want to do there. Our main purpose was sightseeing. The most important thing for us was make really good plan. Few days before we made big list of places where we want to go. We spent many hours online looking for useful informations about places which we would like to visit. We checked prices, location and opening hours. We were walking like a 10 miles per day. During our for days stay we used metro just once and we saved a lot of money :) And you know what? It was best plan which I've ever done. We didn't lost any minute! 

4. Other ways to save money during your travel
It's obvious that we have to eat something during our travel. The best  and cheapest way is to buy food at supermarkets. But if you want to go to the restaurant, check it before you will go. We've got a lot of useful apps and websites so it will be easy to make a decision :) Great place for food in Barcelona is Burger Kiosko. Best burgers, big portions and good prices. Avoid "restaurants" with big banners 3 meals for 10 euro! Believe me :) We've lost this way 20 euro. 
If you need to exchange money, do it in your country. Make research and find best exchange rate. We made a big mistake because we had not enough money and we went to the exchange shop in a city center. They paid us 60 euro for 80 pound which was big loss. 

In total we spend 180 pounds per person per 4 days. This amount could be lower but it was our first budget trip and we made few mistakes. Now, when we know how to avoid "unpleasant surprises" our next trip will be much cheaper :)

Barcelona is a beautiful city! I would really recommend to visit this palce. 
If you have more experience about traveling on budget share with us! <3

Hope you enjoy this post,

How to find best deals?

Hi guys!

Today's post will be about best deals I've ever found. I'm a woman and it's obvious that I will always looking for new cosmetics even if I have lot of them at home. What is my secret to find really good bargain? Watch, watch and watch! Every time when I'm at Boots or Superdrug I'm looking for reduced products. I'm trying not to buy cosmetics at regular price cos I know that I can find what I need at reduced price. Today for example, I found Avene Hydrance Optimale creme for 3,50! Regular price is 13,50 pounds! How I found this? I went to the Boots just for quick watch what is there new. Firstly I found reduced products shelf. And there it is! :)

Similar situation was 2 days ago. I went to Wilkinson to buy some chemicals and what? I found Shwarzkopf hair oil for 1,37 (regular price 5,49) and shower gel for 0,49 (regular price 1,99). I was looking for new hair oil few weeks but all of them were so expensive and I knew that some day I will find something good and cheap. And there it is :) 

Today I was looking for new shampoo at Morrisons when I found 2 John Frieda products for 2 pounds each (regular price 6 pound each).

Every time when you're going to the shops, keep your eyes open! It's worth it :) 

Of course you should be reasonable! Don't buy any products just because it's cheap. If you don't need this it doesn't make any sense cos after few months you will probably put it to the bin. 
Think before you buy.

What you can do else to save money buying cosmetics? Take advantages. Don't be affraid to ask about discounts or adantage cards.

If you're student, don't forget about NUS card!

Follow discount and deals sites:

Hope you found any useful information. Let me know what is your way to find best deals! 
Can't wait :)
