Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review!

Hello! I know I am late on this bandwagon but I finally have the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water that I have seen raved about so many times by beauty bloggers. 
You apply it to a cotton pad and use it to wipe your entire make up off with without the need of rinsing. 
To begin with, it claims to me good for 'even sensitive skin', which I can agree with. I have super sensitive skin, I'm even allergic to Simple's sensitive skin range, yet I have had no reaction with this product.
To test how well this product takes off your make up, I did a little test where I took off my make up with it and then used a face wipe to see how much make up came off after. I found that I need to use two cotton pads with this on to completely take off my make up, and afterwards when I used a make up there was barely any make up on it. Result!
It applies well and you don't need much to have a reasonable amount on your cotton pad. It's smooth to wipe over your face and leaves your face wet but dries quickly.

Overall this product is good and I find it as a great alternative to using face wipes. It feels nice on your skin as it is cleansing water and fully gets rid of the make up on your face. I have used it for a couple of weeks now and I am barely 1/4 of the way through the bottle. I would buy this again and I have already recommended it to my Mother to try out. 

  • Feels nice on the skin
  • Great for sensitive skin
  • Takes off all make up 
  • Alternative to rinsing/using facial wipes
  • Cheap
  • Lasts a fair amount of time

  • Because it is a large bottle I keep repetitively knocking it off my drawer. Doesn't spill though!

Have you tried it out? What do you think? Let me know!

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm Review!


Sorry I haven't posted for a while, I am currently taking my A Level exams so I have been busy revising! But anyway...

Here are my Revlon ColorBurst Matte Lip Balms. The red one I believe is 'Striking' and the purple one is 'Shameless'. I had been wanting to try them for ages so when I got them for my birthday I was really happy!

The red one is a lovely bright red perfect for sunny days! The purple one is a beautiful colour, perfect for those who want their lips to stand out. My favourite one out of the two is the purple one by far!

Overall I love these. Just as it says they are definitely a matte colour that ALWAYS stand out. They aren't drying, VERY easy to apply and are long-lasting! I only ever need to go over them when I eat a full meal and that is only a bit! Furthermore I love how the colour of the packaging is the exact copy of the lip colour so you know exactly what it looks like without taking the lid off! It is also really easy to carry around with you in your bag and simple to apply in the restaurant bathroom or whatever.

At the moment I can use them straight away without a lip liner or using a lip brush because of the point at the end of the crayons, however I am concerned this effect may weaken after using for a long time.

I am definitely pleased with Revlon for this one and wouldn't hesitate to buy more of these lip crayons! In some ways I prefer them over lipsticks.

Have you used them? What do you think? Let me know!

April Favourites!

Hello! Here are my kind of late April favourites:

1. Models Own- Hypergel and Speckled Egg
Both new from Models Own, Hypergel is a high-shine gel like nail varnish which I love. Mine is a beautiful pastel blue. The other one is from the speckled egg collection brought out for Easter and I have mine in green. I will do full reviews on these soon!

2. L'oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara- Black

I was so excited when I got this! I don't want to say too much about it as a review will be coming up on it but it is great and I really want to try the other colours.

3. Revlon ColourBurst Matte Lip Balms

Silly me forgot to note down the names of these colours but I have a beautiful red and a gorgeous purple. I will review these very soon but I am extremely EXCITED about them!

4. DVD- Chicago
I LOVE musicals, and Chicago is one of my favourites. Chicago is a brilliant film and the songs are fun to sing along to :-) Saucy, sexy and pure brilliance. A must watch.

So there we have it! Have you used any of these? What are your April Favourites? Let me know!
