Kleenex Wipes Review

So as mentioned earlier in the week I have been trying out the new cleansing range from Kleenex, I picked 3 products from the range; Facial cleansing wipes, eye makeup removal wipes and facial clothes. All three products are currently at a reduced introductioary price at Tesco;

I have to begin by saying I’m not usually a fan of ‘wet wipe’ type makeup removal, I tend to prefer a makeup removal cream applied with cotton wool and then a facial wash (I am a bit obsessive about making sure there isn’t a patch of makeup left on my face!) but this is not say I wouldn’t use them as a quick option on a night out or whilst on holiday.

So the facial cleansing wipes and the eye make-up wipes both seem to contain pretty much the same product, the main difference being that the eye wipes are a slimmer wipe than the face. The wipes have a texture that is somewhere between cotton wool and tissue, they are quite quilted which feel nice when removing make-up. So how did they perform? Well I would say these are as good if not slightly better than other wipes I have used, the only thing that has defeated the eye make-up wipes is my Estee Lauder Doublewear eyeliner, but I do have to scrub to get this off so I wouldn’t let this put me off.

Facial cleansing wipes; £1.49 (r.r.p £2.99 for 24 wipes)
Eye makeup removal wipes £1.49 (r.r.p £2.99 for 24 wipes)
Facial cloths 99p (r.r.p £1.99 for 30 clothes)


Going Mad for BarryM Nails – New Croc Effect Polish

As I have probably mentioned before; I struggle with nails! But I just had to do this post because I love BarryM’s cheap and cheerful nail polishes and special effects polishes which are so easy to use and give great effects. Their summer range has definitely not disappointed and for anyone that doesn’t feel confident with polish I would definitely give this brand a go..

EcoTools – brushes with a conscience!

Welcome to my tools section, I am going to begin by talking about some of my favourite brushes which I use on a daily basis, these are my brushes from EcoTools. These synthetic brushes are made from taklon, bamboo and recycled aluminium, they are 100% cruelty free and they are a brilliant find!


Goodbye dull nails, welcome to the Summer…

So the days are getting longer (but not necessarily warmer) and we are heading well and truly into summer with this in mind I decided it was time to start being more colourful and what better place to start than my nails! Firstly I found some of my last years classic colours and I couldn’t resist treating myself to a few more on trend colours…

My last years Nail Inc Limited Edition 'Kings of Neon' collection and some of my newbies from Barry M, 17 and Rimmel London.


Look out later in the week as I hope to create some funky looks using these. It would certainly seems that pales and pastels are in but we have yet to say goodbye to brights and fluorescents…

Bright colours and pastels are still ruling as seen in Cosmopolitan and Glamour Mags this month.


A nice new dress and tidy make-up…


So Friday 13th and I have just sat down having spent the last 30 mins chasing Cookie the cat around with a piece of bacon (my dinner no less) which she refused to give up until bribed with a suitable alternative which in this case turned out to be Dreamies In Chicken (might be worth remembering this information if you ever find yourself in a similar situation!).

I love all things cat and I just had to mention this bargain dress I picked up in warehouse, I absolutely love the cat print and the dress is great to wear for work with a nice skirt that falls just above the knee and for £29.99 you really can’t go wrong.

I also decided to finally sort my makeup out this week, up to now I’ve been using a huge under bed storage box into which I throw all my makeup, this isn’t ideal when I’m in a rush and I run late because I’m scrambling around looking for my blusher! So I went to one of my favourite bargain stores, pound land, and picked up an array of little plastic storage boxes so I could get organised. The containers have fun multi colourer lids and are stackable, tidy also proved to be very therapeutic;


An Everyday Classic, Elegant ‘Doll look’ for Pale Skin.


A well deserved day off and I decided to treat myself to some bargains and create a new look. So Boots stores are running a 3 for 2 promotion on practically everything so I decided to set myself a challenge and find myself 3 new products which will help me create a classic and elegant look on my pale skin.

For reference for my base I have used;

- Estee Lauder Double wear Foundation in Shell 1c1

- Estee Lauder Lucidity Transparent Loose Powder in Light

- No7 Natural Blush Cheek Colour in Soft Damson.
