Garnier Micellar water

To be honest, I never thought that I would buy this product! I remember when it first came out I thought it was just 'fancy packaged water for your face.' Now, I have been officially converted to the religion that is micellar water.

I have been using this morning and night for just over a month straight, and I can tell what a difference it has made to the removal of my makeup. When I use it in the morning, it feels really refreshing and awakening. I am surprised at how much first can accumulate on the face overnight, even after having a through cleanse the night before. I use it on a cotton round to remove only my eye makeup at first, really concentrating on removing my mascara (I always find that the hardest to completely remove!). Then with a clean cotton round I remove the rest of my face. When using it on my eyes I experience no stinging that I expected, and my sensitive skin does not react negatively. When I use it in the morning, it feels really refreshing and awakening. I am surprised at how much first can accumulate on the face overnight, even after having a through cleanse the night before.


The simple clear packaging means that it is easy to judge how much that you have left, while the pink cap makes it cute enough to want to have on my desk to display. The lid is a bit iffy though; the dripping means that sometimes I use too much. I would have preferred it to be more of a pump dispenser, similar to some nail polish remover bottles.

I love it, and will definitely be repurchasing it upon it's eventual run-out.

Have you converted to micellar waters?

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips. 

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!
