L’oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Skin Micellar Solution


L’oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Solution

When my BioDerma recently finished (I went through 2 500ml bottles in less than a year), I was so sad! I had never used a cleansing water before and had so badly fallen in love with it! It effortlessly took makeup off and I didn’t think I’d be able to find anything like it!

When the last drop touched my face, I decided to man up and go to boots to have a snoop around all the different cleansers the drugstore had to offer! I knew that some big brands have amazing ones too but I didn’t want to have to pay tonnes of money for something I use everyday! I had a look at No7, Soap & Glory and then finally L’oreal!

When I took my makeup off the first night, I was AMAZED! I had put on a full face of makeup including waterproof eyeliner and this just wiped it off! I was surprised at L’oreal to make such a big brand dupe! I’m not too keen on the packaging because of the way the liquid comes out.. It spews out and often spills. But I love how slimline it is, making it perfect for travel.

You can see how it removes makeup. In the swatch shows a cheek stain and waterproof eyeliner and it came off with little or no effort at all. I always use the solution on a baby wipe (Huggies Value Pack- £0.97p) and I wipe my makeup off.

It’s fantastic value for money too coming in at a whopping £4.99 for 200ml! And it’s equivalent to Bioderma which costs £9.99 for 250ml! You an get this from any drugstore! Super handy and lovely!

Shopping haul!

It happened and I’m sorry! I needed some retail therapy after a horrible week! Wasn’t in the best of moods so took advantage of an hour I had free to do anything with and naturally.. Chose to test the strength of my card!

At the moment Soap and Glory/ Boots have a sale on 3 for 2 products so I picked up their hand food! I have the larger version which I got in their Christmas romper pack that they did but that’s way too big for my handbag! I grabbed these smaller tubes which cost £2.50 each so I got 3 for £5! This stuff smells great and is not greasy! I hate hands creams which attract dust to your hands like a magnet! But this dries instantly leaving a light and moisturise feeling with a lovely fresh scent.

Soap and Glory Hand Food £2.50 for 50ml

Boots are also doing buy 1 get one half price on their make up tools so I grabbed myself some Real Technique brushes! I got the blusher brush and the stippling brush! I’m loving these at the moment and I’ve used nothing else since I got them (future blog post coming up).

Stippling brush £11.99

I then popped over to Accessorize! I love this place! The people who were in their stores are always friendly and their stock is great! You all know I’m a fan of rings so treated myself! I got the black stone ring because I loved the expensive look of it! I find Accessorize rings last AGES and I’ve never had one go green either so I love picking one or two in time for the current trend! The silver leaf one is silver plated! I was looking for a ring to wear everyday when I’m not feeling up to a statement design and this looks elegant, delicate and is a lovely design!
St. Marcasite leaf ring £14

I also got this lovely perfume from Accessorize! It’s called enchanted and smells divine! A very floral and slightly musky smell but it’s not overpowering and is perfect for day to day (if you wear perfume out as i don’t for religious reasons.. This is just another one for my bed and teddy to smell)!

I love the quirky things in Accessorize and grabbed the mini wipes at the counter! I love strawberry and these were perfect to keep in my hand handbag! They also do cherry ones! Then I saw this notepad and just had to get it! I needed something to take notes on at work and for my blog and this is the perfect size! Not too small so you can’t see but not so big your bag should have a licence!

The bangle is from H&M! I LOVE HAYCH AND EM! Their jewellery sits my scrawny wrists and fingers! I love the way they often do bangles in different sizes! I would love to wear oversized bangles but from most stores they usually go right up to my shoulder so when I saw this bangle, I grabbed it! I love the design, size and the clasp which means I don’t get sore hands from squeezing it on!

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:

20120803-002929.jpg
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.

20120803-002801.jpg
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!
