Review: Liz Earle – Cleanse & Polish

I’ve always been a fan of Liz Earle products, it all started with my mums 90’s QVC obsession, she bought one LE face wash and that was me hooked!

The Cleanse & Polish, Hot Cloth Cleanser is a favorite of mine. All Liz Earle products are made with natural ingredients and included in the Cleanse & Polish are: cocoa butter, rosemary, chamomile, hops and eucalyptus. All of these ingredients are to help soften, moisturise, tone and purify.

This is super easy and quick to do, apply all over face and neck, take the muslin cloth, rinse in hot water, use the cloth to wipe the cream off and finally give your face a splash with cold water. Afterwards your skin looks healthy and soft, honestly it’s amazing how good your skin looks and feels afterwards.

So ladies and gents, if you’re looking for some seriously good looking skin, give this a go, you won’t be disappointed!

Beauty Buys.

Recently, I have been spending some of my hard earned cash on haircare and beauty products, all of which I have purchased from my work.
Now, I am all for beauty on a budget and when these products arrived I couldn’t resist (I also get 10% off everything which makes it even better!).
My most recent buys have been –

OSIRIS AVISÈ – COLD CREAM, Cleansing Cream

Argan Oil – Heat Defence Leave in Spray

Argan Oil – Hair Treatment

Argan Oil – Shampoo & Conditioner

OSIRIS AVISÈ – CC Cream in Natural & Tanned
image

image

Cien – Make Up (Foundation in 1 Natural)

All of these products were under £3, which is an ABSOLUTE STEAL! The great thing is, is that because these are so cheap you don’t feel like you have burned a hole in your pocket!
As with most of the things my store sells, these little beauties will not be around for long and once they’re gone, they’re gone!
I will say that all these products work a treat for me, however everyones skin is different and these may not work for other folks, so do check the ingredients to make sure that they will work for you.

Review: Cien Products

Since moving into the house, getting a kitten and the change of job has meant that I cannot spend a small fortune on beauty products. I’m normally a bit of a high street girl, but will invest in some expensive products now and again, however I am completely in love with the Cien products which I have been buying from my work. I have bought the nail polish £1, mascara £1, moisturiser £1.99, shampoo 75p and conditioner 75p, hand cream £1.99, body moisturiser £1.99, nail polish remover £1.99, deodorant 99p and they are AMAZING! The make up range is pretty good for everyday wear, they also have lip gloss, lipstick and foundation, the colours are limited however that shouldn’t put you off. There is a selection of moisturisers too and I have gone for 24 moisture as the winter wind does no good for my skin!

The biggest thing for me however, is the shampoo and conditioner. After years of dying, straightening and curling my hair, it is now quite dry and brittle, I have tried LOTS of brands and even spent a small fortune on products to help fix my hair and the Cien products have proved to leave my hair shiny and silky smooth. The results were instant and bloody amazing, it’s crazy to think how cheap they are! A definite must buy. 

If you’re looking for beauty on a budget then pop into your nearest Lidl store and pick them up and see for yourself!

Beauty Buys Part 4.




I seem to be buying a lot of beauty products the last couple of months which is a nice change from myself as I’m forever buying clothes and shoes! That said, I still haven’t started on my next ‘I Went Shopping Part Whatever’…The photo’s are a little dark as I used my phone to take them and there was minimal lighting in my room, so soz for them looking a tad fuzzy.

Dermalogica Mini Kit.

I picked up this little beaut a few months ago when I worked at the cinema and I STILL haven’t got round to using it(!). I’m blaming my tiredness and busy schedule…
