Caudalie Mixology…⠀ ⠀ The lovely folks at @lovemebeautyuk treated me to a box of @caudalie to how I would feel about mixing up my skincare. After all, we don't all need the same routine day in and day out.⠀ ⠀ Caudalie suggests having these four beauties of products in your skincare arsenal: ⠀ Make-up Removing Cleansing Oil⠀ Overnight Detox Oil⠀ Glycolic Peel⠀ Instant Foaming Cleanser.⠀ ⠀ The four products can be mixed and matched together to make the perfect skincare regime for you. Personally, as someone who never seems to have enough time, I have loved the ability to mix the glycolic peel and foaming cleanser together. Plus I'm not sure I'll ever be able to be without the cleansing oil again! It is amazing!⠀ ⠀ How would you mix it up with #caudaliemixology?⠀ ⠀ ———————-⠀ ⠀ #Flatlay UKBloggers #UKBloggerLife #BloggersTribe #Lifestyle #BloggingGals #LifestyleBlogger #BloggerLife #Blogger #OnTheBlog #TeacupClub #FBlogger #FashionBlogger #Fashionista #LookBook #DIY #TravelBlogger #DesignInspo #Passion #BBlogger #BBloggerUK #PursuePretty #PrettyLittleIiinspo #WearitLoveit #FlashesofDelight #TheHappyNow #NothingisOrdinary #ThatsDarling
