GARNIER EXPRESS 2 IN 1 EYE MAKEUP REMOVER. (£3.49)
This has swiftly become my new favourite eye makeup remover, which has already made itself into my repurchase pile. Previously I used one from the Body Shop, but as my local store closed I decided to look for an alternative. It is extremely gentle on my eyes and removes even the most stubborn of waterproof mascaras. Shake it up, pop some on a cotton pad, hold on the eye for a few seconds and wipe away. Simple! My only bug bear is that you can only buy it in the 125ml bottles. It would be great to have it available in a larger bottle like the Misceller water. But for now I will just take advantage of the 3 for 2 offer. I mean at £3.9 its not exactly breaking the bank is it!

SOAP & GLORY ULTIMELT HOT CLOTH CLEANSER (£10)
I only have one gripe with this cleanser, & that is that it is Lavender scented. I am really not a fan of lavender! Apart from that though, I really do like it. It cleanses my skin well, leaving it feeling very fresh, soft and supple. It melts my base makeup away with ease & without irritation which of course is a plus! Retailing at £10 (unless on offer) makes it really affordable and a good alternative to some of the higher end brands out there. I don’t think I will repurchase purely based on the fact I really dislike the scent of it, so I find myself holding my breath as I cleanse! Not one for those who have a dislike to lavender scented products!

DERMALOGICA SKIN REFINING MASQUE* (£27.40)
This mask is predominantly meant to help purify and refine oily skin. Now I don’t have the worst skin but I can get slightly oily in my TZone so I was happy to give it a try.  I’ve been using it on a weekly basis and I have to say I feel as though my TZone oiliness has reduced slightly. After use my skin looks visibly clearer and a lot more plumped than usual. It’s also helped to reduce my pores which is bonus too. It is on the pricey side however I feel it’s quite justified purely for the fact I don’t need to use too much with each application, therefore it lasts a long time…and it works!  

Have you tried any of these products at all? 

Much love.
