When I was filming this video, I was pretty content with myself. Not only did I like the way my hair looked – call me vain, but these things can make or break a day -, but I was satisfied with having yet another batch of products finished to show you.

After starting to make a conscious effort to actually finish products and not let the last bit go to waste while saving it for a special day, I felt like I made really good progress.

I do divide my skincare in different steps, as you have seen in my routines (morning and evening), and now I know exactly how many I have waiting in line for each and every need.
