L’Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution

10 May

If you’ve read my blog previously then you’ll know that I loved the Melvita micellar water, but I decided that I wanted to try some others as this was the only one that I’d tried.  I bought this L’Oreal micellar solution last month as with skin care products I like to use them for a while before reviewing them.  If your new to micellar waters they are a solution made of water with tiny particles of oil suspended in it which quickly absorbs make-up but is gentle on your skin.

L'Oreal Micellar Water

L’Oreal claims that this is a 3 in 1 products that; 1) Dissolves make-up, 2) Unclogs pores and removes impurities and 3) Tones and soothes skin.  It is also suitable for sensitive skin.

L'Oreal Micellar Water

It comes in a 200ml bottle which has a square shape which I quite like.  The lid feel secure and I haven’t had any problems with it leaking if I’ve been taking it with me somewhere.  It’s really easy to use, just pore a little onto a cotton pad and wipe over your face.  I really like it because it’s super quick and easy to take your make-up off at night.

I find that it removes make-up really well, it does take a couple of swipes to remove waterproof mascara, but I don’t really see that as a negative to be honest.  I think that it unclogs pore/removes impurities a little but not as much as the Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleanser.  As for the last claim I do find that it leaves my skin feeling toned.

L'Oreal Micellar Water

Overall I really like and would definitely buy it again but I think I might try some other brands of micellar waters too; just so I can see what other brands are like.  This retails at about £4.99 in Boots and Superdrug.

Have you tried the L’Oreal 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution?  If you have what did you think of it?  Or do you have any other micellar waters that you recommend that I try?

 

Summer Essentials (6) – Hair

1 Jul

This is the last in my series of Summer Essentials post, I’ve really enjoyed writing them and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading them too 🙂  So this one is on hair, and the products that I’ll be using most during the summer.

Summer Essentials Hair

  • Aussie Miracle Shine Shampoo – I love Aussie shampoos’ and conditioners and this is my favourite at the moment.  It leaves my hair feeling soft and shiny, and it smells really nice 🙂
  • Batiste Dry Shampoo – To me this is a must have.  I use this in between washes if I feel that my hair needs freshened up e.g if I get caught in the rain/have had my riding hat on.  The dry shampoo comes in various scents which I don’t think are too overpowering.
  • L’oreal Elnett Hairspray – I love this make of hair spray!  It keeps hair in place all day and you can’t feel it in your hair.  I find that some hairsprays leave hair feeling sticky.  I also brushes out really easily and doesn’t leave hair full of tugs.

Summer Essentials Hair

  • Hask Natural Essentials Leave in Conditioning Treatment –
    The lovely people from Hask sent me this a while back after they seen my review of their Argan oil.  This was the first leave in conditioner that I’d used and I have to say it works really well. Simply apply to towel dried hair and then style as normal.  It smells nice, gets rid of tugs and leaves hair nice and soft.
  • Hask Argan Oil – I use this almost every time that I wash my hair and I feel that since I stared using it way back in December that the condition of my hair has really improved.  And by improving the condition of the hair it helps to make it grow faster.  This leaves my hair really soft and super shiny.  You can see my full review of it here.
  • Sea Salt Spray – I love the looks that salt spray create.  However after seeing so many mixed reviews about salt sprays people had purchased, I decided to make my own and I’m glad I did.  I find this works really well, is really easy to make and doesn’t leave hair feeling sticky.  This is definitely something that I will be using regularly during the summer. I will post the recipe that I used in the next few days.
  • Bun Ring – These are great for putting your hair up, which I usually do a lot during the summer.  I bought this from Internacionale and it’s smaller than the ones which are usually for sale as my hair is slightly to short for the regular sized ones.
  • Hair Clips – These are from Forever 21 and I love hair clips for just clipping hair back or  just adding something a little different to your look.

Hope you like my Summer Essentials for,let me know what you think 🙂 And what are your summer essentials for hair?

Summer Essentials (1) – Nails

24 May

I’ve decided that I would start a little series of posts called Summer Essentials where I will pick out some of the products that I will be using over the summer.  I will post these every Friday for the next few weeks.  This week is Nails where I will show my favourite summer nail varnishes.  I will also be creating the following posts in the series, Face, Lips, Eyes, Skincare and Hair.

When it comes to summer I love wearing bright colours on my nails and here are the shades that I’ve chosen to feature in my Summer Essentials Nail post.

SummerEssentailsNails

  • L.A Colors Green Tea – This shade is pale green and shimmery.  I think glittery colours look great in summer when the sunlight catches them.  You can see what the colour looks like here.  I usually use three coats to make the colour opaque but you can use less.
  • L.A Colours Atomic – The photo doesn’t do this colour justice, in real life it’s a gorgeous bright blue/green colour which always reminds me of the sea.
  • Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream – This shade is a lovely bright sky blue shade.  I find that this nail varnish needs two coats to ensure that it is streak free.
  • Barry M Gelly Nail Paint Grapefruit – This is a bright pink and as it’s part of the Gelly Hi-Shine range it dries with a very glossy finish.  You can see what the colour looks like on nails here.
  • Nails Inc Warwick Avenue – This is a pale pink and will need a few coats to build the colour up and make it really opaque.  If your a fan of French manicures then I think that this would be a great pink shade for it.
  • L’oreal Royalty Reinvented – This is a lovely lilac shade which I think I will be wearing a lot during the summer.  The brush is wider than the usual nail polish brush size meaning that you can coat the nail in one stroke.  I usually use two coats but you could definitely get away with one coat.

Let me know what you think of my first Summer Essentials post and what colours you love wearing during the summer 🙂
