Micellar Water… What’s it all About Anyway?

10 Mar



So I kept seeing micellar water everywhere and I had no idea what it was, after doing some reading up on what it contains and what it does I was all up for trying it out.

Micellar water is loved by French ladies (reason enough for me to grab a bottle) and is free from alcohol and soap so it’s a really gentle way to remove makeup and because you don’t have rinse it off with water it’s also super easy for slightly lazy girls! Not that we’d ever scrimp on our skin care, right ladies? 

I found this B. Pure Micellar water in the Superdrug B. vegan range and loved the low price tag, I got this half price at £2.49 but it’s well worth the usual £4.99.

So, if like me you’re wondering what it actually does here’s a rundown of what’s on the back of the bottle. It’s a 3 in 1 “super” water that claims to cleanse, tone and refresh your face, suitable for all skin types, even sensitive. It cleanses by removing impurities and makeup and its gentle enough to use on the eye area. It tones by restoring pH balance and keeping skin supple. Finally it refreshes with cucumber extract.

For years I’ve removed stubborn makeup like mascara with cucumber face wipes followed by a swipe of Clean and Clear sensitive cleansing lotion but I think this micellar water could persuade me to change up my routine. It’s very gentle on my skin and even removes tough mascara with a couple of cotton pads, unlike face wipes this leaves my skin feeling full of moisture and silky soft. 

It’s a big thumbs up from me for this product, my sister has been using the moisturiser from the B. range and is loving that too so make sure to check it out while it’s on half price because you may just find a product you adore.

Taking the Shine Off

19 Nov

I take good care of my nails and always get a little alarmed when I see natural nails ravaged by years of acrylic damage, they look so sore! Everyone has their own style but I’m afraid false nails are not my thing and with such great products to care for and enhance the appeal of going au natural I kind of think they’re unnecessary.

I am loving matte nails at the moment and got myself a great little matte top coat from H&M, the bottle design is simplistic and this does what it says on the label.

I painted this top coat over one of my favourite colour polishes, Iconic by Revlon and I love the result.

Green Eyed Girl

10 Nov

I love playing about with makeup and experimenting with different looks, I picked up these three eyeshadows from the brand Makeup Revolution London and for £1.50 each I wasn’t expecting much but thought I’d try them out anyway. I also used my Mac eye shadow in Lucky Green for this look.

Finally I lined underneath my eyes with the Mac Lucky Green for a bright pop of colour.

IMG_1506.JPG I was so happily surprised by these inexpensive eyeshadows, especially the Eden shade as the colour pigment is really vibrant. Teamed with a sparkly gold shimmer this colour would be perfect for the party season and for £1.50 I think I’ll be going back for some more shades!
