For Today's Mondays with MontyC, I'm sharing my love of a recent birthday gift... the NARSissist Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette, When it comes to present buying my family, we make life easy and tell each other what it is we want! So as requested, this palette appeared on my birthday from my siblings, together with a lovely bottle of wine. Happy girl, me!

Although lately I try to stick to one range of products for my skincare routine, I feel I have a little more wiggle room with my cleanser. I have a lot of cleansers. Different types for different tricks, different moods. One of my favourites is this one, the Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream. It is something of a genuine champion for stressed-out skin. I tend to crack it out when my skin has been Winterised (it’s a thing) or if I’ve been poorly. It takes care of me, or, my skin at least.

My name is Catherine and I'm a cleansing nut. Why? Because cleaning your skin properly is one of the best things you can do for your skin. To clean your face properly, all you need is a face cloth and a decent cleanser. Cleansers come in every texture you can think of so go with whichever one you like the best. My favourite textures for my dry skin are creams and balms, and for today's Mondays with MontyC, I'm reviewing a cleanser that was a new discovery for me late last year, Oskia London Renaissance Cleansing Gel.

If you've been near Brown Thomas lately, then you won't have avoided getting a whiff of this gorgeousness before you've even reached the Beauty Hall; Giorgio Armani Privé's latest EdT. Called Pivoine Suzhou (yes, I haven't the faintest idea how to pronounce it either), this is the latest addition to “Les Eaux” collection and supposedly the first Armani Privé fragrance to be inspired by the gardens of Asia.

The (relatively) new Crème de la Mer Treatment Lotion is one of those rare things in skincare; it does what it says. Ok, you can ignore the bumpf on the CDLM site about it being a "miraculous source of vitality" or that it's like "liquid energy". How and ever, a drop-and-a-bit of this each day really helps.

MontyC here and I've got a right little gem for you this week here on Planet Make Up For Dolls! Take a look at this - it's the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil, the newest addition to the Instant Light range (I'm never without the amazing Instant Light Lip Perfector) and what a fantastic addition it is too. This was released as part of the Garden Escape (Spring 2015) Collection from Clarins a couple of months ago.
