Sucker for skincare.

I am the world's biggest sucker for skincare products.

I was plagued with extremely bad skin and I've been fighting a battle with skin problems since I was a child. Eczema, weird rashes from strange allergies, oily skin that sometimes flakes and of course, the bane of my life, acne.

I tried so many different brands of skincare I could start my own review guide (Clinique was the worst). Then I found Dermalogica when I started working (because I could finally afford to buy products without asking mom for more money).

-- No, the 3 Steps didn't work for me.

With my facialist's advice, I bought products for different problems that came and fortunately, went away. Products to fight dryness (from the 24-hour air conditioning), oiliness (from genes) and sensitive skin (from I don't quite know what). Yup I bought lots.

And I'm tempted to try Pure Night.

A nourishing, brightening overnight treatment to help minimize surface spots while conditioning and hydrating skin. Use nightly to help treat and prevent cellular discoloration, smooth fine dryness lines and defend against environmental damage and moisture loss. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

I really didn't know how much I have till I was searching for a new tube of Active Moist moisturiser last night. I opened my medicine cabinet (half the height of an entire wall) and my jaw dropped. It's chockablock full of products I haven't used.

This is only HALF a wall of products. I am too ashamed to take a photo of the makeup side. Seriously, I can start a skincare section at home.

I have them in trial size, travel size and full size. Nice smelling shampoos, leave in conditioners, fancy schmancy shower gels (Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser rocks my socks) and rows and rows of skincare.

I am a hoarder!

I should really start using all the products religiously to have the great skin the products promise.
