L'Oreal 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution

Now I'm sure all bloggers have heard of the cult French product Bioderma, which is the primary product that comes to mind when I hear or see 'Micellar.' I haven't tried this product myself for the pure fact that it is a little out of my price range, and I'm very funny about using new skin care products. It seems though, that the likes of L'Oreal and Garnier have jumped on the bandwagon and formulated their own dupes. 

I was actually looking for the Garnier version when I stumbled across this one and decided to try it instead. A Micellar Solution or 'Water' is a 'high performance hypo-allergenic cleanser for face, eyes and lips and is suitable for sensitive skin.' The solution dissolves make-up, unclogs pores, removes any impurities from your skin and also tones and soothes. I'm a big lover of the Nivea Daily Essentials Cleanser & Toner and have used it for years, but dare I say this may be a new favourite?

After trying this little beauty for a few weeks I can honestly say I agree with every single statement that L'Oreal have said about this product. It literally feels like you are removing your make-up with water, its so light and makes your skin feel amazing afterwards. A little goes a long way with this product too, I hardly use anything and my make-up seems to lift straight away. 

Are you a fan of Micellar Solutions? Have you tried this product?

L'Oreal Skin Perfection Range

Anything that has the words 'skin' and 'perfection' is its name is a winner in my books. Isn't that what were all after in the world - perfect skin? I know I am and I have literally tried every possible way to get it. I saw these two products on a weekly Tesco trip with my Mum and seeing as there was a very tempting '2 for' deal on them, I couldn't resist. I do like a L'Oreal product but at the minute by go-to for everything has been Nivea. I've read a lot of positive things about L'Oreal at the minute, so that and the deal kind of dragged me in.

I like that both products are suitable for dry, sensitive skin and the fact that the face wash contains no perfume or soap. They both work to unclog pores and remove impurities from the skin, along with removing make-up too. I've been using the Micellar Solution for a week or two now and I have to say, I am highly impressed. I'm going to introduce the face wash into my everyday routine this week and get back to you guys with my thoughts.

Have you used these products before? What are your opinions?

Happy Mothers Day with Alix Webb Cards

How adorable and amazing are these cards?! My good friend Alix makes these beautiful cards for lots of occasions and I am absolutely in love! I wanted a really special card for Mothers Day instead of the generic cards you'd find on the high street, and Alix has definitely achieved that. They're also really affordable at £2.50 (including p+p) which for something handmade and individual is so good. There's something really special about receiving something handmade and I know my Mum is going to love this.

She has lots of different designs and styles for not only Mothers Day but birthdays and special occasions. I've already complied a list of friend's and family member's birthdays and there's no doubt I'll be purchasing some more cards soon.

You can contact her here and look at some of her recent work on her Facebook page here. Her cards are also available to buy at Delightful Decor in Chesterfield for £1.99.
