Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish

Hello :)

I know there have been hundreds of Liz Earle reviews in the beauty bloggerspere over the past year or two but i thought i'd throw mine into the mix too.

From the reviews i've read of this product, i discovered that people use it in different ways. Some people firstly use a make up cleansing wipe to remove their make up and then use the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish as a cleanser on clean skin, whilst some people (including me) simply use the cleanser to remove your make up and to cleanse the skin in one go.

Before i go to bed, (i also use the C&P in the morning to cleanse my face) i take one pump of the cleanser onto clean hands and massage it onto my skin, during this time you will notice that your make up is sort of 'melting' away, make sure you remove your eye make up last, otherwise you will have a black mess of Mascara/Eyeliner/Eye Shadow down your face!

The next step is to wet the Muslin cloth under warm water (not hot!), then take a section of your Muslin cloth and working in circles to simply buff away all the cleanser and make up off your face. The Muslin cloth also has a micro exfoliating ability, which means you are Cleansing and Exfoliating in one go!

Once your face is make up free, give your face a quick splash with water to remove any of the remaining cleanser from your skin.

What Do i Think?
I have always been a make up wipe kinda girl, so when i started using the Cleanse and Polish i was slightly dubious as to how different the results would be, and would the extra effort be worth it?

I have Oily/Combination skin, so i am prone to the odd flurry of spots now and again, but nothing terribly bad. My main skin concern is redness/uneven skintone. Since using the Cleanser the redness and uneven skintone of my skin has evened out and my skin just looks a lot more healthier.

Instead of rinsing and rinsing your Muslin Cloths out in the sink simply pop them in the washing machine for a quick wash! :)

I will definitely be re-purchasing this, this may well be my HG cleanser. :)

Have you tried the C&P? Do you recommend any other products from Liz Earle?

I was sent this product to review courtesy of the Liz Earle PR Team. This does not affect my opinion on the product.

i spy with my little eye . . . .

Hello :)

Did you like the title of this post?! Who else used to play 'I Spy' on reaaaally long car journeys when they were younger?! haha....

Thought i'd do a post today on my favourite eye products at the moment.

1. Urban Decay Naked Palette
A must have for beauty lovers, this palette never vacates my dressing table. From the Frosty Champagne Pink 'Sin' to the Sultry 'Smog' there is a colour for every occasion in this palette.
My favourite shades at the moment are, Virgin, Half Baked and Buck.

2. Urban Decay Primer Potion
Unfortunately i suffer from oily eyelids, so an eye primer is a must have for me. A quick dab of this on my eyelids and i feel reassured that i will have crease-free eyeshadow for the day. I also have the UD Primer Potion in the colour 'Sin', however when i use it, my eyeshadow still creases! So i'd suggest staying away from the 'Sin' version and sticking with the original.

3. Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Liner
I've always been rather anxious about using liquid eyeliner as i don't have the steadiest hand in the world. However, i found this liquid liner loitering in the bottom of my make up draw and decided to try my hand at applying it...
I'll admit my first time using this was not perfect, however after a few attempts i was flicking my liner out like a pro! I love the thin brush on this liner, which helps with precision and i've not found it to smudge either. (Note; I do use Urban Decay Primer Potion underneath my liner first.)

4. Loreal Lash Architect 4D Mascara
When i first bought this mascara we did not get on, to be frank it was a gloopy mess. However 2 weeks later and the mascara has dried out slightly, which makes it a lot easier to work with and leaves me with long luscious voluminous lashes. WIN!

Hope you enjoyed a quick sneek peek into some current favourites of mine.

If you'd like any reviews on any of the products then drop me a comment and i'll whip one up asap. :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
