So while im not taking them iv been trying different things to see what helps and what makes my rosacea worse. I will do posts on these things soon. Any recommendations though are very welcome :)
The exact causes of rosacea are unknown but there are certain things which have been linked to rosacea and making it worse: cold weather, sunlight, hot drinks, stress, alcohol and certain foods.
The symptoms of rosacea are flushing and constant redness, spots, palpules and pustules, visible blood cells, dryness, burning or stinging sensation and sometimes thickened skin.
There are various websites for information on rosacea. I found the nhs website very clear and helpful www.nhs.uk/conditions/rosacea There are loads more though.

It was only £35 (i think??) from topshop, bargain! :)
And this is what is inside:
So we have my glasses case (I wear them for driving and watching tele), a new price list and a tigi product guide from my hairdressers, my diary (not really much in it), a few receipts (one from tesco and one from superdrug, my phone (lost without it!), purse, umbrella (because our weather is sooo unpredictable), my ipod and ipod sock, empty chewing gum wrapper (I should really chuck rubbish away), a brush, mirror, 3 lipbalms (a body shop one, johnsons one, and a nivea one), a lighter (unfortunately I do have the occasional cigarette :( ), some hair bobbles, some plasters (just in case), and my car and house keys.
I carry alot of stuff about with me!!

What i'm loving :)
The sun, summers on its way (hopefully!!)
My new blusher, maybelline mineral blush topaz rose, gorgeous colour
The new series of the apprentice is starting next week (haha)
I'v finally got my hair cut and booked in for a colour next week, yay
Not loving so much :(
Having to wait for things to be delivered from America (i'm so impatient)
The fact that i'm still on short time at work (recession, grr. I love having the time off work - me time, but when no one else is off it can be boring)
Trying to perfect the winged eye look with my gosh liquid liner (but practice makes perfect)

It was £9.30 for a 45g bottle.
There were loads of good reviews for this on the internet plus it says 'gentle, soothing cream to minimise fine lines around the eyes', exactly what I was after.
I got this just over a month ago and have used it everyday since, morning and night, and I can't see any difference at all! I even stopped using it for a few days to see if I noticed the lines (and sometimes eye bags!) any more than normal but I didn't.
It does leave your eye area very soft which could be a good base for concealer but it's not really what I bought it for. I had high hope's for this after reading the reviews and I was very disappointed :(
