Clarins Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel

Clarins Daily Energizing  Cleansing Gel 

This cleanser is so amazing. I received this for Christmas, but didn't start using it until a few weeks ago. You apply this cleanser to wet skin and gently massage it in, through circular movements. The cleanser foams up and forms an almost milky consistency, making your skin extremely soft and smooth. Barley any product is needed to cover the whole face, which is great.

The smell of this cleanser is really refreshing, perfect for both morning and evening. It can be used on normal, dry, combination or oily skin so most people will be able to use this.

The cleanser includes Vitamin C to stimulate the skin's natural defenses, Turmeric which is a powerful antioxidant, Alchemilla which regulates sebum production to keep pores and the complexion clear and Ginkgo biloba which improves the skin's uptake of oxygen.

I loves this cleanser and I will definitely be repurchasing this.

Glossybox March

This months box was themed City Chic, capturing me instantly!

Tresemme Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray - I was in need of a new hairspray so this was good. The hold in my opinion is really good and I quite like the smell so that's a bonus! I'm impressed.

Juicy Couture Couture La La - I'm not really a fan of seeing a perfume sample in my box, but this one I really like. 'Couture La La is feminine with bright florals, daring with bold florals and feminine with sensual woods and musk.' I really like this and might consider buying the full size.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream - I was quite excited to see this as I've wanted to try this for a while. I've mostly been using this on my lips and absolutely love it! It's so moisturizing  I put it on just before bed and wake up with really soft lips. 

Nails Inc in St.James - Love this colour, it's a bright red with a hint of pink - really girly! This has been on my nails since Tuesday and has lasted pretty well with minimal chipping. 

Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Lip Blush - I love this. I love the bright colour and love the consistency - very smooth and easy to use. I use this after applying the Elizabeth Arden eight hour cream on days when I feel like a more glossy look instead of a bright pop, but this is lovely on its own as well. 

All in all, a pretty good box in my opinion. I love the girly theme and everything in the box!

Make up brushes

I recently celebrated my 16th birthday and received some lovely presents from my friends and family. My brother bought me a make up brush collection, which I will be showing you today. This particular set comes from Light in the Box which you can find here.

As you can see, the collection is rather large (I couldn't photograph the whole collection in one photo as the case was too long to fit into one shot), which is great as there are loads of brushes I can chooses from to create different looks. I have been using these for about two weeks now and have to say, I am very pleased with them. I haven't experienced any shedding and they are very soft. They pick up plenty of product and are very easy to use.

These are the brushes I use the most, so I keep them in a little pot on my dressing table. I highly recommend these brushes to anyone, especially as they're so inexpensive and of a high quality. They're great for people who are only now venturing into the beauty world (like myself) as there are so many different brushes to choose from and are great to start a new collection with. They're a lovely addition to any make up brush collection.
