Swisse Skincare 2016 Releases - #RivetReview

Swisse, yes, the vitamin and wellness company, also make skincare, and have been for several years now. Just in case you have missed the memo, this brand has been one that has found a praise in my skincare cupboard. The botanical formulas and eco-friendly products make Swisse Skincare great for your skin and for your conscience.

Press Box

In June 2016, a new range of product hit pharmacy and supermarket shelves; including two BB Creams*, a sunblock, a clearing moisturiser, a body scrub and a body oil. These products joined the already flourishing range of some of my favourite makeup remover, oil cleanser, and toner mist.

What happens when life ruins your skincare routine. And Malar Rash.

Things have been really unorganized and not so great lately, so my skincare routine has really suffered. Between all the practical exams, practical lessons and Lupus flare ups, my skin has gone from OMG WOW! to OMG HOW?!

My neck is normal... My cheeks are extremely red.

I'd like to welcome you to the last few months of my life; stress, illness, and an "I don't care" attitude.
