Summer Moisturisers

In winter I'm all aboard the heavy moisturisers and thick balm cleansers bandwagon as my skin seems to shrivel up and flake off (I'm sorry for that glorious mental image) but in summer, it goes the opposite way and the idea of using a moisturiser doesn't appeal in the


Which is why I pack the very necessary moisture (even for combination skin) at night so I don't risk my foundation sliding off my face during the day.

With this, a little goes a long way so it lasts forever as its quite a thin consistency but it really packs a punch. I find this works well in both winter and summer and I also love it for plane journeys to act as a protective layer to stop my skin drying out at all. It's lovely.

Avocado is known for being a key ingredient moisturising masks and it really works as part of this as well.
