On saturday I treated myself to a few beauty products as I had very kindly received a Boots Gift Card from my uncle and his lovely girlfriend who came to visit us. 

( Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash - BOOTS  )
( Soap & Glory Mist You Madly Mini Body Spray - BOOTS )

I have been lusting after the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash for quite some time now, I'm a massive fan of all of the Soap & Glory products that I have tried so far and I hope to try more in the future. I am specifically interested in the 'Sugar Crush' range as the scent is so delicious. All of Soap & Glory's products are well-known for their lovely packaging and clever names and I think that the 'Sugar Crush' line are all especially eye-catching. 

I have been inconsistently using Soap & Glory's Mist You Madly Body Spray for a few years now and I re-bought a bottle at the start of september so that I could take it to school daily. I have since used it all up and as I went to re-purchase it noticed that all of the skincare and beauty items were on a 3 for 2 offer at Boots. I decided to stock up and buy a back up because I go through each bottle of body spray in a matter of weeks. 

( Cotton Wool Double Faced Oval Pads - BOOTS )

Now cotton wool pads are an essential but I usually just go for the regular circular ones, but as I've been using them to remove my makeup and cleanse with Environ's Sebuwash I have been getting through on average 10 a day, which is a lot. I decided to try the larger oval pads to try and reduce the amount I am using, effectively not having to constantly buy so many. I have only used them once so far and 2 pads was more than enough to remove my entire face of makeup,including my eyes. These ones have 2 specifically designed surface's one is for cleansing, the other for removing nail polish and such, so they are not rough on your skin.

( Rimmel London Day 2 Night - BOOTS )

I know that this is by no mean's new on the market but I have wanted to try Rimmel's Day 2 Night Mascara ever since one of my friends with such lovely lashes used it years and years ago. I have been switching between 3 different mascaras for the past month or so and wasn't happy with how any of them made my lashes look, so I decided it was time to get a new one. I haven't used it much yet so hopefully there will be a review coming after I have properly tried it out, if anyone would like to hear my thoughts. One of the main things that attracted me to this mascara was the fact that you're basically getting 2-in-1, there is only one wand but there are two different thickness' you can choose from, as to if you want more product on your brush or less. I am very excited to start using this.

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water - BOOTS / SUPERDRUG )

Cleansing waters have been massively raved about ever since the infamously hard to get your hands on BIODERMA, which has only recently been made widely available for people of the UK to purchase, came about on the scene. Those who tried it, loved it. Unfortunately I still haven't been able to try Bioderma but there has been a lot of drugstore dupes from brands such as GARNIER , L'OREAL and NIVEA.

A cleansing water is basically an easy, kind to your skin way to gently remove your makeup. You just need to apply a few drops of the product to a cotton pad and gently wipe around your face, eyes and lips. One of the main selling points to a micellar water is that it requires no rinsing at all. I find that a lot of make up wipes ( excluding SIMPLE ) leave my skin red and sore but when using the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water I didn't get any of that at all, my skin even felt softer and healthier. 

I have since used up the entire bottle and would most definitely purchase this again, but I am currently trying out a new skincare brand recommended by my beauty therapist during a skin consultation. I am sure I will be reviewing those products soon enough. Anyway, this is a really affordable, long lasting product that works flawlessly and overall I would highly recommend it. What do you think of Cleansing Waters?
