PS.  Have a follow of Backstage on Instagram, it's full of little pearls like this one (who else overuses products?!)

"We understand that our skin care products are an investment in your skin and yourself, the key is to use them sparingly.

Here is a great visual representation for the quantity required for each product type. Following these guidelines can ensure they go the distance while still making sure you still reap the full benefits of our amazing products."
