All About Skincare :: E45 GIVEAWAY

E45 Dermatological Moisturising Lotion & Repair and Protect Overnight Hand Cream
When it comes to skincare I honestly don't know of a more household a name than E45. From as far as I can remember we've always had an E45 product in our home, from the huge srew top tubs of cream to this sleeker and more portable squeezy bottle of lotion. This brand's history dates back to 1952, and it being so prevalent and well known today is testament to just how effective and beneficial their products are for the skin.

Now I'm gonna put my hands up to say that I am absolutey terrible at taking care of my skin. I LOVE facial skincare but I very rarely moisturise my body, arms, hands, legs etc. Now that we're feeling the full force of winter (I wear 2 cardigans and a coat whenever I go out), I'm also suffering from very very dry and sensitive skin. And you guessed it, along comes E45! We use our hands non-stop throughout the day so it's no wonder that they get unbearably dry when the weather turns, and as much as I'd love to slap on the handcream in the day, it's terribly inconvenient and makes it near impossible to complete any day to day tasks such as writing or using the computer with slippery hands. Using the Repair and Protect Overnight Hand Cream is so perfect for me, I have this by my bedside and lather it on just before bed. Its thicker consistency makes it almost like a hand mask which works magic whilst you sleep! If you prefer moisturising throughout the day, E45 have also got that covered, read more here for a hand cream to suit you.

If the Overnight Hand Cream sounds like the solution for you, then why not enter my giveaway below for a chance to win a set of E45 products! Instructions to enter are on the Rafflecopter app below and two lucky winners will win 1 x Overnight Hand Cream and 1 x Dermatological Moisturising Lotion!

Good luck~

Bloomsbury Blackout

Chiffon dress c/o Oasap · H&M lace top · leather shoes from New Look

Around a month ago I met with Teban from Asian Impressions for a long overdue shoot as he passed by London for the weekend. We had only intended to meet on the Saturday he was in town but by some bizarre twist of fate, I bumped into him in London on the Friday before the shoot and then again the day after! The weather being so awful that day meant that two out of the three outfits were shot indoors, mostly in a little cosy corner of UCL much to the amused stares of all the students studying there that day... This all black outfit is one of the looks we shot and epitomises my obsession with wearing all black - when opting for an outfit composed solely of black pieces, it's important to mix and match different textures for dimension and interest to your look! Here I've gone for a melange of lace and chiffon with leather on the feet to toughen up the former feminine materials. How do you wear all black?

With love~
