Garnier Micellar Water

OK, I'll be honest; I am terrible when it comes to taking my eye make up off. I usually just wash my face, look in the mirror and see dark rings of black around my eyes. It's really bad for my skin and eyes and something that I wanted to control. I've used quite a few Micellar waters in the past including the much loved Bioderma. While I liked them all, it wasn't until I tried the Garnier version that I really fell in love.

I'm bought this from Boots for £3.33, which I think is a really great price considering it is a 400ml bottle and promises around 200 uses per bottle. They offer a range of products for different skin types such as 'combination & sensitive' and 'very sensitive'. I decided to purchase the combination & sensitive skin as my skin is quite oily and because of my acne, can react quite quickly to different products. Needless to say I have had no outbreak to this at all, and if anything, it has cleared up my skin. While I use to get a lot of breakouts on my chin, since using this product, I haven't had any and I have noticed that my skin has become significantly smoother too. 

As for removing eye makeup, it is brilliant. I no long go to bed or wake up in the morning with big panda eyes. I still use my face wash afterwards if I have been wearing makeup, as I find that I would need at least three cotton pads to remove all of my make up with just Micellar water but I don't mind doing this at all. I have been using this twice a day and it is continuing to work really well for me.

Overall I would absolutely recommend this product, it is the best Micellar water that I have tried so far and I know that it will be come a firm favourite in my collection for some time.

Garnier Summer Body

Garnier gradual tanner has been one of my favourites for the past few years. As soon as the weather starts to get a little warmer I start slapping this on in the hopes of not blinding people at the sight of my white legs. I've tried quite a few gradual tanners but this is my absolute favourite, it's not sticky and I have never had problems with streaks or lines like I have had with other products.

I've been applying this practically everyday after a shower for the past few weeks, and it has developed into a really natural looking tan that has certainly made me feel a lot more confident about wearing shorts and skirts. I know it shouldn't really matter, but I always feel a lot better when I have got a tan. I've even had a few people ask me where my tan has come from, and seen as Cheshire, as well as the rest of the UK has had very limited sun, it's not hard to work out that this tan is from a bottle!

What is your favourite product when it comes to tanning?

What Have I Been Up to

So as mentioned previously, I decided to take a couple of months away from my blog and social media in order to fully concentrate on my final few months of university (dissertation and all). I had originally planned to start blogging as soon as my deadlines finished, but decided to take some time before jumping back in. I wanted to do a little post about what I have been getting up to in the past few weeks.

Hello Stranger

Ok, I don't actually know where to start with this one. I have been gone for quite a while, 3 months to be exact. I don't want to dwell on this too much, but feel the need to explain the reason for my absence. I was working hard on my blog and enjoying it, but at the same time felt that balancing my time between my final year of university and my blog, meant that they were both suffering, so I made the decision to focus on my degree until hand in. Good news, I handed in my last assignment a few weeks ago so am officially free forever, and unemployed but lets not focus on that too much right now. Anyway, with all my work out of the way, I am so eager to be able to start blogging again. I think the break actually helped in many ways because I feel that my content kind of needs a 'shake up', so expect lots of new, exciting and hopefully inventive content on here as well as my other social media. 

It's just a short post from me today as I thought that it was necessary to explain why I had been gone all this time. However expect a new post on Wednesday that I really hope you will enjoy. I have so many adventures planned over the next few months, including visiting 11 different countries, lots of days trips and a summer of fun, I hope you'll stick around!
