•A Day in Rotorua•

Bonjour!

I have recently spent a week on the North Island of New Zealand, and during one of the days we were in and around Rotorua. Rotorua is, although slightly smelly, a beautiful destination where I actually experienced some of my favourite parts of our whole holiday!

It looks a lot happier and healthier, and although it is still a work in progress, I am looking toward a much clearer-skinned future. So, here is my skincare routine – I hope it will help you with yours!
