Melvita Fresh Micellar Water*

15 Dec

Micellar water seem to be everywhere at the moment and I’m probably a little late to the bandwagon but oh well.  A micellar water has tiny oil molecules suspended in the water meaning that they are gentle on skin but are able to quickly absorb any dirt and make-up.

Melvita Micellar Water

This was one of the items that I got when I went to the Fabb event in Glasgow and I’ve been using it a lot since, hence why the bottle isn’t completely full in the picture.  I forgot to take pictures of it when it was full and it definitely has a lot less in it now!  The Melvita Micellar water aims to remove makeup, cleanse skin as well as tone; I find that it does all three.  I have to admit that I love products that do more than just one thing.  It has a slight rose scent as it uses petals from wild roses that are grown at high altitudes.  The fragrance isn’t overly strong and I find that the scent doesn’t last on skin however if your not a fan of fragranced products the this might not be for you.  The Melvita Micellar water is also organic and not tested on animals.

I find that the best way to use this is to pour a little onto a cotton wool pad and then wipe over skin.  I find that to remove mascara it’s best to hold the cotton wool pad over the eye for a few seconds before wiping the mascara off.    I find that this micellar water helps to remove even waterproof mascara without being harsh on skin and full of chemicals.

Overall I really like this micellar water and would consider purchasing it again although I think I’ll probably try some other to see what I think of them too.  This cost £15.50 for 200ml bottle, the one featured here is a sample size and is 35lm.

Fabb Events – Glasgow

10 Oct

This is only the second blogger event that I’ve been to and I have to say that I loved this one so much.  Fabb events is run by Ray (from Who is She) and Tor (from That’s Peachy) who did an amazing job organising this event and if they’re organising one near you you should definitely as its great fun and you get to meet a lot of other bloggers 🙂

Anyway, the Glasgow event was held in Fanelli’s in the Merchant Square.  There was a lot of bloggers there and it was really nice to meet everyone.  The brand that attended were; Cocoa Brown, Lush, Tropic Skincare, Crystal Clear Skincare, Mallzee, The Pokey Hat and The Beauty Kitchen. Everyone from the brands that were there were really friendly and spent time talking to each blogger.

I have to warn you now, there are a lot of pictures in this post;

The Lush stand! All of the products smelled amazing (as usual).  I really loved the parcel shaped bathbombs which rattle like a proper present (I can’t be the only one that shakes and squeezes at Christmas presents?) as they have smaller bathbombs inside.

 

Tropic Skincare

Tropic Skincare is was created by Susan Ma who took part in the Apprentice.  All of their products are vegan and cruelty free.  The candles that you can see in the top picture smell amazing and I think I will definitely be buying them at some point.
