Loreal 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution

I have been using this cleanser/make-up remover for quite a few weeks now and I can definitely say I'm in love! This product has been compared with the very famous Bioderma, which you can only get in French pharmacies so unfortunately I can't compare the two but I can tell you how great this product really is!

So what really is Micellar Water?
Micellar water is a free from alcohol make-up remover that is combined of water and oil but doesn't just sit on top of each other. This formula is great for removing make-up but without leaving the oily residue on your skin, which is good for all skin types especially oily ones!

Using as a Quick Cleanse
If I'm super lazy and just want to get into bed, then I quickly sweep this over my face and it surprisingly does do the job! It removes all my make-up and tones my face with a fresh and clean feel. However I don't recommend doing this every night!

Using as a Pre-Cleanser
When I do a full cleanse of my face I would use the Micellar Water to get rid of pretty much all my make-up but mainly my mascara. Then go in with a face wash to really get rid of the grime and oils. I then feel like my whole face is thoroughly cleansed and I won't wake up with any panda eyes!

I really recommend this product as it definitely did not disappoint! It gets rid of any waterproof mascara and any oils. 

Do you prefer this than Bioderma? 

You can pick it up at Boots for £3.33 here

Bath Time Pamper Perfection!

Hey Everyone!

We all love a pamper - don't we? Well I know I do, and it's super easy! All you need is a hot, bubbly bath and some lovely beauty products to indulge in, it's that simple.

Here are the products that I use:

1. Marks & Spencer, Rose Moisture Rich Foaming Bath Essence
To create the bubbles of my bath, I use a foaming, rose scented bubble bath. It leaves the bathroom smelling of a rose garden - the perfect pamper scent!

2. Hello Kitty Liberty Body Scrub
Came as a set 
By the end of the day we probably will have dry skin, so to ex-foliate I use a body scrub. I tend to use one with less harsh grains, as otherwise it will be too ruff on my skin. I especially try and concentrate on my arms which is the most affected area of my body. 

3. Mark Hill, Big Night Out Get Ready To Party! Pre Styling Shampoo
I always like the feeling of fresh hair, so I lather up a shampoo and rinse thoroughly with water. The one which I use at the moment is great for styling and getting volume. 

4.  Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Peel Off Face Mask
When I get out of the bath I apply a peel off face mask. When I take it off my skin feels clean and fresh. My skin also looks more radiant.

5. Biore Warming Anti-Blackhead Cleanser
Before I use the face mask, I wash my face to get rid of any excess makeup, dirt and oil. Also leaving my face feel clean and fresh.

6. The Body Shop Body Butter, Peach Vineyard
After my long, hot bath I massage The Body Shop, body butter onto my skin. The reason why I like this is because it's very very thick. It also sinks in really well and leave my skin feel super soft!

7. Schwarzkopf Seah Hair spa, Winter care mask
Instead of using a conditioner, I use a hair mask, this just locks in more moisture and leaves my hair looking super duper shiny and very healthy!

I hope this post gave you some ideas on what to use for your pamper evenings! Also, can you see a difference in my blog design?!  The amazing Rachelle from Beloved Bluebird was able to re-design my blog and I am so grateful!

What do use in your pamper evening?

Trend Spot: Plaid

Trend Spot: Plaid

*Made on polyvore here*

Hey Eveyone!

I have a whole new series this upcoming fall/winter, the 'Trend Spot.' I'll be keeping you updated on the newest trends from fashion and maybe even beauty! So let's get started...

When the leaves start to fall one trend always makes its comeback, plaid! Sundresses may be a staple item for your summer wardrobe but when the weather starts to cool, cute plaid smock dresses are going to be on your wishlist! 

Years ago you wouldn't have thought that tartan would be a massive trend to wear, it was mainly associated with kilts, but now it's seen on literally every type of clothing item - even trousers. However you would need to be brave to pull those off! If you want a more easier way to style plaid, then a smock dress like the one above is perfect as just wearing simple accessories to go with it, like some gold jewellery, black ankle boots or even maybe a bowler hat

There are so many ways to wear plaid and this winter I know I will be rocking it. So hit the shops and stock up on all the latest fall trends.

Are you going to be wearing this trend?

What would you pair them with?
