"Don't forget the vaseline!" These are the words that my Mum shouted whenever we were packing to go anywhere… no, really. For a long time, I actually used Vaseline on my face, because let’s face it… when you need that deeply moisturised feeling, it’s really good at giving it to you.

If you read the directions on most cleansers, they tell you to cleanse in the morning and at night. I've even heard of triple cleansing (yup that's a thing too).
