1 product.. 5 uses! Talcum powder!


I’m a big fan of multi- use products and recently, I think I found the best of the best.. Talcum powder! Originally used when changing baby diapers to avoid wet rashes, these days, so many products are based off powders! You can get this from the £1 store and it lasts ages!

1.) Getting greasy hair? Sprinkle some talcum powder into the roots of your hair and massage in to have your scalp feeling fresh!

2.) Want more voluminous hair? Sprinkle talcum powder into the roots of your hair and massage in to give your hair some lift!

3.) Put too much body lotion on? Pour some talcum into your hand and lightly tub in your body to remove any excess moisture you have!

4.) Anti- bacterial? When your feet are wet out of the shower, you’re more likely to get feet- related conditions such as athletes foot. Sprinkle some talcum powder onto your feet to absorb any excess moisture!

5.) Smell like a baby? who doesn’t love the smell of a baby? Use this as perfume by rubbing into your skin.. Especially arm pits (will absorb moisture) leaving behind a gorgeous smell!

My make up removal!


20120803-003129.jpg
Ah! The awaited make up extrapolation routine of mine! This is the most basic routine I think I could have ever found! Now I wear make up almost 6 times a week, so I need to ensure that I remove it well so no residue is left.. But a way that isn’t nasty on my bank balance :)

Here we go:

1.) I use Avene extremely gentle cleanser.. As a cleanser! Although this says extremely gentle.. I find it does sting your eyes if it goes into your eyes so be careful of that! I put a pound size amount into the back of my freshly clean hands and divide my face into 7 sections and work on these sections separately.

I then massage this almost like I’m trying to absorb it into my skin and ensure that I get to the edges of my face and that I don’t tug my skin too much.
When it comes to eyes I get a little of the cleanser on my fingertips and I rub my lashes using the ball of my index finger to gently massage the mascara and eye liner off using small circular motions. It will come right off.. Trust me.. It’s amazing!

2.) I then take my baby wipe which I like the scented version of, because it smells yummy likes babies! I stretch it slightly because this makes the wipe bigger and I can use more of it to cover my face! I then gently rub the wipe all over my face.. Changing the section of the wipe to a clean bit for every section of my face! I do the eyes last! And just like I used my finger to rub my mascara off.. I wrap the wipe around my index finger and again gently in circular motions wipe off the residue!

You’ll notice all your make wipes straight off! This is the BEST method of removing make up I find! I have never used toner on my skin and not do I use face wash after this procedure. The reason being.. Because I don’t need to! I don’t want to touch and massage my skin too much if I don’t think toner does anything to it! It’s unnecessary expense to me and I think my make up comes off and my skin feels much fresher just by doing this routine! I apply moisturiser after though :)

Avene extremely gently cleanser can be found in Boots for £8/9
And baby wipes are always on offer for £1 but usually cost £1.50 for a pack of 64!
The avene lasts me almost 4 months! And the baby wipes last me more than 2 months! So that’s basically £30 for the whole year! And you’ll still have some wipes left over!

My tip is.. If you see the wipes on offer for £1.. Pick up a few packs because they don’t go out of date and if you keep them sealed until you need to use them, you’ll get a lot more for your pennies!
