L'Oreal Micellar Gel Eye Make-Up Remover caught my eye as I made my way to the till (isn't that always the way). I initially thought it was a mini of the L'Oreal Micellar Water but, on seeing it was a gel eye make-up remover, I was intrigued. This is a very gentle eye make-up remover that is specially formulated for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Some people on Instagram said they felt it left a residue but, because I use this pre-cleansing, I don't find that to be an issue. It's a novel idea and I quite enjoy using it.
I was given a No7 voucher on one of my Boots trips and, for the first time ever, felt compelled to spend it. I saw the No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Oil and was intrigued to see if it would be comparable to the uber expensive Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil. I really like the formula of this; it emulsifies well and removes all trace of make-up. As I only use a cleansing oil as a first step to take off my make-up, I don't see the need to fork out for Shu or other if I can find a cheaper alternative. I have and this will do just nicely thank you!
Two new launches from Indeed Labs have been all over social media streams for the last few weeks and, when I saw they were both on offer in Boots, I decided to check them out. The Hydraluron Moisture Jelly is supposed to be a follow-up step to the original Hydraluron serum. Now, I was never blown away by Hydraluron but, I do really like the Moisture Jelly. It is a light, cooling gel that soaks in quickly and instantly hydrates the skin. I also adore the packaging; it's one of those super-hygienic push-down dispensers that ensures no germs get into the pot. Finally, the Facial Powdered Exfoliator is a, well, powder exfoliator. You add as much or as little water to the powder as you want, depending on the strength of exfoliation required. I have only used this twice but, so far I like it and it's nice to use a manual exfoliator again!
