Howdy dudes & dudettes
I've been away from the 'ole blog machine for a few weeks and while I do have excuses I'm not going to bore you to death with them all, but I will share one excuse.. My parents came over to visit me last weekend in London for a couple of days, a LOT of laughs were had (to the point where I was crying in an Italian restaurant because I found something so funny and when myself and my mother visited the Tate Modern Museum and I had to bury my head in my mothers coat to stop my laughter from echoing all over the very VERY silent museum), we had some lovely meals and just a really nice time spent.
Annnd onto the reviews..
|Garnier Pure Active - 24 hour spot fighting moisturizer|
I love almost everything Garnier, it just suits my skin so perfectly and all of the products I've tried seem to do my skin some sort of good. As a person who has fought with acne/spots for so many years I'm always up for trying something that says it can fight them or at-least keep them at bay and that's what the Garnier 24 hour spot fighting moisturizer did for me, although it didn't clear the spots completely, I did notice a big change in my skin, it felt more hydrated, healthier looking and the spots had faded. Big thumbs up from me!
|Nivea Visage - Light Moisturising day cream|
I started using this product at the beginning of 2012 when my mother posted it over to me when I first moved to London (she was worried I wasn't moisturising) and for a couple months I used this and found it to be quite a good cream but once I found the Garnier 24 hour spot fighting moisturizer I threw this little tube into the back of the cupboard but I have recently discovered my little friend again. Just looking at the box and the tube it doesn't look very exciting or appealing but my gosh it works wonders, my face has cleared up a huge amount, it feels so smooth and it's like it's had a nice drink..yuuum hydrated face! Another Thumbs up from me! P.s I've already repurchased this.
|Rimmel Match Perfection - 001 Light|
own, it gives that nice little sun-kissed 'I look really fresh' look.
|Batiste Original Dry Shampoo|
These 2 items are probably my babies, once I'm running low I feel the need to go running to the shops in a panic to buy some more, I think I have some sort of a fear that they will discontinue these products.. even just typing that gave me the shivers. I think everyone has those products that they have used for so long that they just become apart of them. I know a lot of people use all the different types of Batiste Dry Shampoo but for me I've always gone back to the Original scent/type, it likes my hair and does the trick, I have really dark brown hair and for some people white dry shampoos tend to leave a dandruff looking layer on their hair when they use this but maybe I'm just the lucky one because it doesn't happen to me.
Sudocrem - The answer to all life's problems. No matter how big or small it is if someone has hurt themselves, have a spot, their arm is itchy, anything. I will always suggest they use Sudocrem. I'm one of these people you probably don't want to meet if i'm having a 'bad skin day' because all you will meet is a white spotted sudocrem covered face.. not the best look! But none the less it's works like a dream.
|ELF - High Definition Powder|
I really enjoyed using the High Definition Powder, when I first seen it on ELF I was a bit skeptical on weather it would be of any use to me or not buuuuut I was proved quite wrong. It gives that 'perfect photo finish' kind of look. I haven't jumped to buy this product again mainly because I haven't had any need to buy anything else from the website. The only downside is that it comes with a soft sponge applicator which I had lost and it meant I had to be super careful opening the pot because the product would just go everywhere.. booo! Other than that I will be sure to add this to the basket on my next order.
Do you use any of these products? Do you have the same views as I do towards them?
Let me know in the comments.
