Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water

I loved the original Micellar Cleansing Water from Garnier, there was a few things I did not like about it but there was also things I did like about it. I like the fact it made taking make-up off so much easier, all you need to do is put some of the micellar cleansing water on to a cotton pad and wipe away your make-up now I know its always better to do a proper cleanse but some times its just to much work and I want my bed and I know we have all been there girls and guys. What I did not like about it was is hurt my eyes so I had to be really careful not to get any in my eyes when taking my eye make-up off which as you can guess is a bit hard and I also found it to be a little bit drying but for me the good weighed out the bad.

Then Garnier released a new cleansing water but this time it has oils in it and its for dry and sensitive skin so I knew I had to get it to try. This new cleaning water has a scent to it which is rather nice, its sweet and light without being sickly sweet. Like the original cleaning water you just put some on to a cotton pad and wipe away your make-up but remember to give it a shake first to mix the oils and cleaning water together. It removes mascara really well with out hurting my eyes, I just put the cotton pad on to my closed eye for a few seconds and then wipe away the mascara, I love using this new micellar cleaning water to take my mascara off, I have even started using this to take my mascara off before I do a proper cleanse.

This also leaves my skin feeling lovely and soft, Im guessing it must have something to do with the fact that there is oil in it. I never feel like its drying out my skin like the original cleaning water did and I have been using the new one this winter and I still have nice soft skin. On the bottle it says there is no need for rinsing and its non greasy and I would agree with that, even though there is oil in this I dont feel like it leaves an oily or greasy residue.

I think this new micellar cleaning water from Garnier is really nice and Im enjoying using it, if you ever tried the original and for some reason did not like it then you should try this one or if you have dry skin and have been thinking about getting the original to try then save your money and just skip it and try this new one instead. Thats not me trying the say this new oil infused one is better than the original though I just think it would be better for dry skin. I still think the original micellar water is also good in its one way like if you have normal to oily skin then I think you would like the original better.

Have you tried the new Micellar Oil-Infused Cleaning Water or have you tried the original Micellar Cleaning Water? Let me know in the comments.

If you have any questions then please feel free to ask them in the comments.

Thanks for checking out this review.

Boots Star Gift

Hey guys! So not long now till Christmas, hope your all almost ready for the big day.

Now although Im going to be talking about the Liz Earle The Botanist's Cabinet gift set in this review the review is more about the Boots Star Gift and is it really worth getting. If your asking what is the Boots Star Gift because you have never heard of it before then dont worry I will tell you.

The Boots Star Gift happens through out December where they have products on offer for about a week and you can save up to half price on same high end beauty products. 

I was looking at a few Star Gifts last year for myself but never got anything and then this year they had the Liz Earle The Botanist's Cabinet gift set for £30 when it was meant to be £60 so I know I had to get it.

I love the design of the box with its little drawers and the pictures of herbs and plants. In the box you will get -
 Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser 150ml 
2 Pure Muslin Cloths
 Instant Boost Skin Tonic 50ml 
Superskin Concentrate for Night 2ml 
Brightening Treatment Mask 15ml 
Deep Cleansing Mask 15ml
2 Sponges
Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask 15ml

I think £30 for this box is really good. This is sadly however no longer a Star Gift but Boots still has plenty more Star Gifts to pick from. 

After getting my first Star Gift I think its well worth the money and I would get more for myself or as presents and I think it would be worth checking on them every now and then to see if there is anything that you would like to try or get for someone else.

If you have any questions about the Boots Star Gift then please comment below and I will get back to you as soon as I can. 

Hope you all have a great Christmas.

Till next time take care x

Birchbox UK December 2016

The theme for the December Birchbox is Merry & Bright but it does not feel very Christmassy however thats ok because its a nice looking box. With this box we are back to having a bag but the box is different again and I cant be sure but I think the box might have got small again. 

In my box I was sent 5 products with 4 being sample sizes and 1 being a full size.

When I first opened this box the first thing I noticed was the smell, it was so strong and not very nice but nothing was leaking. 

So even though the box is smaller again and smells really bad did I like what I get? Well keep  on reading cause Im about to tell you.

Ciate London - Fierce Flicks Eyeliner (£15): This is the product that I got that is full size and its a black felt tip eyeliner. Im really happy to have received this in my box this month and Im looking forward to trying it.

Bobbi Brown - Smokey Eye Mascara (£23): I dont think I have ever tried anything from Bobbi Brown before I have heard of Bobbi Brown just for some reason I have never tried it so Im looking forward to trying this mascara. It has a nice bristle brush and I think its going to be a really nice mascara.

Benefit - Porefessional (£24.50): Im not happy about getting this, Im sick of getting this from beauty boxing. We all know what porefessional is and what is does. I have dry skin Birchbox you know I have dry I said I have dry skin on my beauty profile you make us do when we sign up and yet I keep getting this which would be brill if I had oily skin and a problem with lager pores but I dont. I did not mind trying this when it first came out but can we just all move on now.

Percy & Reed - Perfectly Perfecting Wounder Balm (£18): This is moisturising balm for the hair thats meant to boost shine, smooths, softens and protects the hair. I have dry long curly hair so this will be really nice to try.

Anatomicals - Smoother Butts Love Coconuts Body Lotion (£3.99): The packaging for this is bright and fun and the name is just as fun. The scent is strong so might not be good for sensitive skin but I think I will still give this a go to see what its like. This body lotion also has vitamin e in it which is really good for the skin.

I think this is a good box this month from Birchbox and apart from getting the porefessional Im looking forward to trying everything that I received in this box. 

What did you think of this months Birchbox? Did you love it or hate it? Leave a comment below to let me know.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Glossybox UK December 2016

So its December already and Christmas is almost here. I hope you all have a fab Christmas and brilliant New Year. 

This months Glossybox looks all festive with its white and gold design, I think this box looks really nice. It came with 5 products which are all full size. 

So lets jump right in and see what I got.

MDMFlow - Semi-matte Lipstick in Vamp (£18): Glossybox let us pick the colour of lipstick we wanted this month, we could pick from a nude or a berry colour and I picked the berry colour. I have never heard of this brand before but this lipstick is a very me colour and I also really like matte lipstick so Im really looking forward to trying this out.

Essence - Light up your face Luminizer Palette (£3): I really do like a good highlighter so this little palette will be nice to try. This palette has a matte highlight, a pink highlight with glitter and a gold highlight with very fine bits of glitter. 

Collection Cosmetics - Define & Perfect Eyebrow Powder (£4.19): I have tried this eyebrow powder before and I think its fab, its so easy to use and looks so natural. Glossybox sent me shade brunette 2 but I normally go for the lighter shade, its ok though Im going to try and make it work.

Lipcote (£3.99): I have also tried this before and Im not going to lie I hate it. It makes your lipstick feel horrible to ware and the smell is not good too. It was a couple of years since I tried it so I might give it another go, you never know I might end up loving it which is unlikely but I guess it should get a second chance.

Revlon - Nail Enamel in Valentine (£6.49):  The last product I was sent in this months Glossybox was this nail polish and I love the colour, I will definitely be using this.

Im not sure how I feel about this box over all, I like what I was sent in it but for some reason its not made me go wow. Maybe since I know Glossybox can do really good boxes I was expecting a bit more of a wow factor since this is the December box. I dont hate it I just think this box could have been better.

Did you get this months Glossybox or have you tried any of the products that I was sent? Let me know in the comment below.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 🎄 🎉 

Till next time take care x
