Peaches & Clean!

I'm a big fan of the Soap & Glory range from their skincare to their makeup. I was in need of a new cleanser and I came across this one when I was browsing in Boots a few weeks ago. Usually my skin is quite dry so i'm hesitant about picking up new products on a whim that I haven't really researched in case it makes the situation worse!

However, I picked it up and thought i'd give it a try. I usually take my makeup off at night with a cleansing oil or water and leave my "creamy" cleansers in the shower to use in the morning just to make sure I get it all off before applying moisturiser. Luckily i've been blessed with generally good skin and rarely suffer with spots, just those damn dry patches!

This product is fantastic for removing makeup. It's creamy texture melts away all traces of makeup and doesn't leave the skin feeling stripped of moisture and tight - quite the opposite! It's also one of those cleansers that you don't have to apply and rinse off 10 times just to get your makeup off. My skin feels fresh, clean and my pores appear reduced around my nose. I love this product and I will definitely be recommending and repurchasing!

The Soap & Glory packaging is striking yet simple, you can't miss that flare of pink on white when you're browsing through Boots, or the cool quirky names they come up with for each product. Their ranges are high quality and a favourite amongst countless beauty gurus and bloggers - trust me, if you try their products you'll see why! 

This 200ml bottle was just £8.00 but Boots are having a 1/3 off selected Soap & Glory skincare products at the moment so it's just £5.33 - bargain buy!

Bourjois Volume Glamour Mascara

If you're anything like me, the one beauty product I'm always changing is my mascara. I'm always on the hunt for one that doesn't dry up quickly or dry out my lashes - I must've gone through hundreds! However, this is the one I always come back to.

The formula is enriched with silicone and natural wax which helps give added volume. All I require is one coat of this mascara and my lashes are nicely separated, long and thicker looking. If you are looking for voluminous, long and non-clumpy lashes this is a mascara worth trying. 

I have never been a fan of plastic wands which is another reason I love this product, I find plastic wants to be quite harsh on the eyes when applying mascara. The packaging of this product is simple yet sophisticated and to me it has that old-style, glamorous French look.   

This product retails at £7.99 which I think is excellent for a long-lasting, quality mascara. Unlike some mascaras that are difficult to remove at the end of the day, this product glides off easily with makeup remover and doesn't tug out half of your lashes in the process!

Great product, great price. If you are in the market for a new mascara that does what it claims - try the Bourjois Volume Glamour range. 



Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon

I have been loving these Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayons - in particular the shade 01 Red Sunrise. Not only are they very moisturising (and waterproof!) but they are all SPF 15.

I am a big fan of red lips but sometimes it's not always easy to get a mirror out, line your lips and apply your favourite red lipstick. That's what I love about this product, it is so easy to whip out your handbag and apply quickly without worrying if it's ended up all over your face! I'm not a big fan of lip gloss which is why I was glad I found this product as it's more of a shine than a gloss and gives a nice pop of colour.

The texture is non sticky and glides on like a dream. The mirrored end of the stick allows you to push up more product - I have had this for 3 weeks now and worn it everyday and I still haven't had to twist for more product! The pigmentation is good and the product melts onto the lips leaving them feeling moisturised and hydrated.

I would highly recommend this product. If you're looking to try something different on your lips but don't necessarily want to go for gloss - try this! The colour is buildable so you can be as bold as you want. I suppose the only thing I don't like about this product is that the writing on the packaging is wearing away the more I use it. However, I can overlook this as I'd argue that just shows it's well-loved, ha! You can find this product in Boots and they retail at £7.99.
