Basically I've let myself go and want to change things. Just wondered what everyone's beauty regimes were or tips and tricks people use. Thanks in advance xx

I find liz Earle stuff great, but to be honest I think it is using the muslin cloths that makes the biggest difference, think they gently exfoliate or something. I also use a body shop microdermabrasion scrub about once a week, I need it in winter as my skin gets very dry.
I suppose it depends on a few things - how old you are, what type of skin you have and what's your routine now?

I have no routine whatsoever I'm the mum at school that scrapes her hair back on a ponytail everyday it the trademark black pants haha. I'm prone to the odd bit if dry skin too but I know I'm not drinking enough when that happens x
Superdrug is very good value. I use their Naturally Radiant range and it is excellent. The Radiance Balm is brilliant. And there is always some sort of offer on.
The B range is good too - especially the micellar cleansing water.
I hate Superdrug shops - very noisy and untidy and not very helpful (in fact in my local branch they are downright rude! - but I am prepared to put up with it as the products are so good.
I love superdrug! Mostly because they don't test on animals but love their radiance stuff, also their vitamin B moisturisers are better than any I've tried

I'm don't wear make up very often and if you don't either build up slowly to protect your skin, I usually get a foundation and mix it with moisturiser to help with dry skin x
I have really teenage skin. Not good at nearly 32. I swear by body shops tea tree range. I also use some Lush products but it's mostly body shop. I don't really use foundation preferring a Bb Cream or tinted moisturiser. I recently discovered Avon anew bb cream. Its pricy but very very good and has a SPF of 25 too so that's a bonus.
Cruelty-free hair dyes I recommend Naturtint - they don't last quite as long as the regular hair-dyes that test on animals but if you have relatively short hair then one box will last 2 times but I find the red colours just fade too much for me to continue using. Superdrug do have some vegan-friendly actual hair dyes but will only be marked vegetarian because of the lanolin in the conditioner, I buy them and replace the conditioner as it's still better than using Loreal, Garnier etc.
