Product of the Month – February!

Hey guys, hope you are well and had a good weekend! Apparently its March, not quite sure how that happened so fast but it did and here I am doing a product of the month for February! So this month and the past few months I have been loving The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter! As with all skincare products I have been using it for a few months just to make sure that it doesn’t irritate my skin and cause breakouts and I can safely say that it hasn’t!

This cleansing butter is such a dream to use and literally feels like butter, just not as greasy! It is so soft and gentle on the skin and really does remove every last bit of makeup. After using this my skin feels so clean I never feel like I have to go back in with more product and re-cleanse. This cleanser is also perfect for sensitive skin so if you are on the hunt for a new cleanser I would 100% recommend this one. It says on The Body Shops website that it removes all types of makeup, it removes my mascara and liquid eyeliner no issues but I don’t wear waterproof mascara so I can’t comment on that but considering how easy it removes mine, I don’t think there would be any issues. If you have tried this on waterproof mascara please feel free to let me know how it performs.

You get 90ml of product for £10.00 which isn’t too bad as a lot of other cleansers I’ve used have had the same amount of product in but they are more expensive. Overall, I really like this cleanser, it does exactly what it says on the tin, its great for sensitive skin and it lasts a fair while too! I have actually just re-purchased this as well as I am running low, that is another reason why this lovely cleanser is my February product of the month. Let me know in the comments if you have used this before and what your thought are..

I hope you enjoyed this post. See you soon!

Evening Skincare/Pamper Routine

Hello lovelies! I hope you had a lovely weekend. I am back today with my everyday evening skincare routine but also added in what I use when I decide to have a little bit of a pamper, because we all need a good old pamper every now and then! I did my morning skincare routine recently which you can find HERE!

Evening Skincare Routine

Wash my hands and remove my makeup

First up I wash my hands which is an absolute must, especially because the cleanser I use involves putting in on my hands and rubbing it in so clean hands is a must! I then put one pump of the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser on my hands and gently massage into my face and chin. Once I feel happy that I have got all of my face I then gently wipe my eyes so that my eye makeup comes off, you end up looking like a panda for a few seconds! I then grab my Liz Earle Muslin Cloth, run it under warm water and wipe my whole face with it ensuring that I rinse the cloth every now and then. Once I have got all the Liz Earle Cleanser off I go in again with the Soap & Glory Peaches & Clean Deep Cleansing Milk all over my face and wipe off with the same cloth. I have done a post about the Liz Earle Cleanser here. I cleanse twice just to be extra sure that all the makeup is off my face! Plus the S&G cleanser smells soo nice!

Evening Skincare Routine Liz Earle and Soap & Glory

Face Mask and Face Wash

Once I am satisfied that all the makeup is off my face I will do a face mask. I don’t do a face mask every night but when I am feeling the need I usually use this Body Shop Warming Mineral Mask as it really helps sort out my pores and get rid of any blemishes. You rub this onto your wet face, it goes super hot for a second and then stays warm on your face. It feels like a spa treatment and doesn’t have too much of a scent so you can sit back and relax for 5-10 minutes, then wash it off. My skin always feels so clean and smooth when I use this face mask. I then wash my face with the Vichy Normaderm face wash which I mentioned in my morning skincare routine.

Moisturise & Eye Cream

Now onto moisturiser & eye cream. I use The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream. This really helps put moisture back into my skin and keeps it feeling soft and smooth. I then use the Aloe Eye Defence from The Body Shop as it’s good for sensitive skin which I have and I just find that this is really good at soothing the under eye area and putting moisture back in. I don’t put my moisturiser under my eyes so it needs something to give it a boost!

Evening Skincare Routine:Pamper Routine The Body Shop

So that is everything I usually use for my evening routine/pamper routine. I switch up face masks but at the moment I am loving this Body Shop one which is why I have included it. Let me know in the comments what you use on an evening for a pamper!

I hope you enjoyed this post. See you soon!

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

Hello lovelies! I hope you had a brill weekend and are having a good week! I am hoping this week goes quite fast as I am going to London next week for a couple of days with my boyfriend and I am super excited to have a nice break and get lots of pictures :)! Anyway today’s post is all about skincare as I have finally found a product that really works well and agrees with my skin! As you can see by the title it is the one and only Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. I first tried this just after Christmas as Liz Earle had a sale on some of the travel sized products so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try them and I wouldn’t have spent too much money if I didn’t like them. However, that was not the case and I loved every product I bought so I have since bought most of the full size products and will buy the others in full size when I run out.

Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser

First things first I just want to point out how pretty this packaging is! I love anything in this ice/minty blue colour and I know packaging isn’t everything but it does help, especially when you are paying a bit more money for something and this packaging is just perfect! I like to get the bottle with a pump as I just find it easier but you can get it in a tube as well. What I really like about the Liz Earle website is not only can you choose whether you want a bottle or tube but you can buy in bulk and save money, you can buy bigger or smaller bottles if needed and you can also buy starter kits which will save you money as well.

Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser & Cloth

So onto the actual product! I have very sensitive skin and I find it hard getting products that don’t break me out or end up drying my skin out. This definitely does not do any of those. It is so gentle on my skin, it doesn’t irritate it when it is on and afterwards my skin feels so smooth and soft. It has a really light, fresh scent to it that is gone as soon as you wash it off which is really good for me as I don’t like overpowering scents in my skin care. There is a two step process with this and it is also a two in one product as it cleanses and gently exfoliates at the same time. If you haven’t used this before then let me tell you how it works. First up massage one or two pumps, depending how much makeup you have on, onto your face and then over your eyes. Then rinse off using one of the muslin cloths in hand-hot water ensuring that the cloth is well rinsed each time. The muslin cloths are really useful because they are so soft, unlike normal flannels that can get quite rough over time, they aren’t harsh on the skin and you can wash and re-use them. You can use this product on a morning and an evening to keep your skin in tip top condition. Another good thing about this is it can be used on all skin types so if you are in the market for a new cleanser and you haven’t already tried this then I recommend you give it a go!

The main ingredients are: Rosemary, Chamomile, Cocoa Butter and Eucalyptus essential Oil. You can see the full list on the Liz Earle website and the benefits of each one. I have really noticed a difference in my skin after using this. It looks a lot brighter and I don’t tend to get as many spots. I also like to use the Instant Boost Skin Tonic (full review here) after washing my face on a morning and then the Skin Repair Moisturiser.

Overall I absolutely love using this and will continue to for a long time. I am already on my second bottle and have bought another one for when I run out as I don’t ever want to be with out it! Let me know what your favourite Liz Earle products are and if you have ever used this one!

I hope you enjoyed this post! See you soon.

Product Empties!

Hello lovelies! How lovely has the weather been lately?! It has made me realise that I have hardly any clothes for summer especially ones that are suitable for work as well so I think I am going to go shopping and get a few bits. I will then, of course, let you know if I find anything! So I have been saving up all the bottles from products that I have finished and thought I would share those with you as well as some of them are my fave products that I will definitely be buying again.

IMG_1707

  • Batiste Dry Shampoo Tropical – This stuff is an absolute lifesaver and the Tropical scent is by far my favourite!
  • Radox Sleep Easy Bubble Bath – Okay so this is a bit of a random one but when I don’t have any Lush I love using Radox as it is so relaxing and makes loads of bubbles!
  • The Body Shop Papaya Shower Gel – This smells delicious! I was quite gutted when this ran out as it made my whole bathroom smell lovely when ever I used it! (I haven’t linked this because I cant find this scent but they have loads more to choose from!)
  • Benefit Roller Lash Mascara – I’m not going to lie but I did feel quite upset when this ran out as it is the best mascara I have ever used but I just can’t justify spending nearly £20 on some mascara! So I am on the hunt to find something just as good but a lot cheaper! If you don’t mind spending more on mascara then I definitely recommend it!
  • Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer – I have re-purchased this god knows how many times and will continue to re-purchase as it is such a good concealer. I do want to try the Maybelline eraser Eye Concealer though as keep seeing it everywhere!
  • Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water – This is my 3rd bottle and I am so glad I tried this. It takes my makeup off without fail and just makes my face feel so fresh afterwards.
  • Batiste Dry Shampoo Blush – This was the first dry shampoo that I tried. It worked and I liked it but it has quite a strong scent and it is all I could smell during the day so thats when I decided to try the tropical one.

So that is everything that I have used up recently. I hope you enjoyed this post!

See you soon!

Oriflame Love Nature Creamy Cleanser!

Hello beauties! It is finally the weekend and I have no plans other than to chill, chill and chill! So a couple of weeks ago I did a mini Oriflame Haul and I am now going to tell you my thoughts on those products starting with the Love Nature Creamy Cleanser.

IMG_1541

I decided to go for this cleanser because it is especially for sensitive skin and it was also just over £2.00 – absolute bargain! I also really liked the packaging with the pretty flower on (I am a sucker for pretty packaging)! I use this once I have removed all my makeup just to make sure that it is all off and then wash it off with a cotton pad and it leaves my face feeling so fresh and clean. It also smells really nice too – the scent is chamomile!

I have been using this, along with the other two products I bought, for nearly 2 weeks and I have already noticed the difference! My skin now feels so soft after using this and I have also noticed that now I have a proper skin care routine that I stick to I have had less spots too – winner! I throughly enjoy using this product! I will definitely be re-purchasing once I run out! I only use a small amount every night as a little goes a long way so I know this is going to last a long time because you get a lot of product!

What are your favourite Skin Care products at the moment?

I hope you enjoyed this post! See you soon 🙂

Oriflame Haul

Hello lovelies! I hope you are having a good week and looking forward to the weekend! Today is all about skin care as I have just recently come across a company that had never heard of before – Oriflame! I heard about them through a lady at work and she uses a lot of their products and recommended them to me so I had a flick through the catalogue and decided to purchase a few skin care products myself. They also sell makeup, accessories, hair products, fragrance, products for men and loads more!  So these are the products that I bought –

IMG_1480

  • Love Nature Creamy Cleanser for Sensitive Skin
  • Love Nature Clay Mask for Oily Skin
  • Love Nature Gel Cream for Combination Skin

I have already used these a couple of times and will be telling you about them in more detail once I have used them some more but so far I really like them! Have you ever used any Oriflame products?

I hope you enjoyed this post!

See you soon!
