Review: New Skincare - 'Purity'

Hi dolls! I hope you're all having a fabulous week :)

I was having a browse around my local Superdrug & I couldn't resist picking these up and giving them a whirl.

Before I review the products I picked up here is what Purity have to say about their products:

'Purity Organic Skincare is efficacious, using hard-working, sustainably-grown ingredients, few in number and cleverly combined to encourage skin to work as it should. Where possible the same core ingredients run throughout the range to give your skin the simplicity of regime it needs and to ensure affordability.'

Now onto what I chose...

Purity Day & Night Moisturising Cream (50ml)
£2.00 each.
Available at Superdrug.

Day: To put it bluntly - I'm not a fan. It's very thick and difficult to rub in. Don't get me wrong, it does a good job of moisturising and does leave my skin feeling soft but it takes far too long to absorb in the morning, I need to slap a cream on in the morning and be ok to apply make up 5 minutes later. I will use this, but I certainly wouldn't use it as an every day moisturiser, more of a cream to use when my skin is feeling very dry. 7/10

Night: This could not be more different to the day cream. I LOVE this. It's not as heavy, it absorbs well and leaves my skin feeling amazing the next day. I can't believe this only costs £2.00 & I will certainly be repurchasing! 9/10

Purity Facial Exfoliator (100ml)
Available at Superdrug.

I really like this. It's very creamy and leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. The grains are very small and not in any way harsh so this can be used as an every day exfoliator, if you prefer something harsh this is not for you. I still use my St Ives once a week for a really good scrub but I use this every couple of days to keep my skin looking bright & radiant. 8/10

I'm really impressed with what I've tried so far from this brand and I will certainly be checking out more from the range.

Have you tried any Purity products & if so what did you think?

The Big 2-0!

Hi dolls! I feel like I haven't blogged in forever!

So I turned the big 20 on the 24th April, I had an amazing birthday and I thought I'd show you what I got...

What a lucky girl :)

The people from work got me the Benefit make up, they know me so well!

I got another bottle of my favourite perfume and some more charms for my Pandora bracelet.

On my actual birthday I was a very lucky girl and I got taken to Chapter 1, a local Michelin star restaurant, the food was out of this world and the cocktails were amazing, if you live in Kent you have to go at least once even if it's just to try the chocolate cocktail!

I've got the blogging bug again so expect to see many more posts from me, It's good to be back!

Beautygeek's back... arite?

Hi lovelies, how have you all been?!? I feel like I'm totally out of the blogging loop!!

I haven't blogged in way over a month now, at first it was just a little break, which then turned into an extended hiatus. When I was finally ready to come back to blogging my laptop BROKE!

But I'm back, with a new laptop and lots of new products to rave about!!

I've created a proper blogging 'schedule' now and do not plan on being out of the loop any longer!

I hope you all had fab easter, i'll be back shortly with lots of new posts!
