Review: Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser

Good evening ladies!

First of all I would just like to say thankyou for the amazing feedback on my previous post, I never expected such lovely comments and they really brought a smile to my face.

I've decided to review a product I've been loving for past month, it's become a new favourite of mine and I wanted to spread the love!

Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser:

This actually comes in a box but I threw mine away, oops!

In the box you get:

Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser 200ml
Muslin Cloth

I picked this up about a month ago and I haven't stopped using it since.

Being a big fan of the Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser I was very sceptical of this product, I didn't think that something that costs so little could be even half as good, how wrong I was!

The formula is quite thick and it covers really well. I use it every night to remove my make up and it does a really good job, I use it on my eyes and it doesn't cause any irritation at all.

Compared to the Liz Earle version it doesn't smell as natural, this cleanser smells like cocoa butter and it's quite an artificial smell, nice but artificial!
You get a massive 200ml of product, this has lasted me over a month and there is still loads of product left.
Overall this is a great product for the price. If money was no object then I would choose the Liz Earle version over this but with such a massive price difference I cannot justify the price tag of the Liz Earle version whilst I'm watching the finances!

Product: 9/10
Packaging: 8/10
Price: 10/10
Overall :9/10

Available at Superdrug, priced at £2.99

Have you tried this product yet or anything else from the Vitamin E range?

A bit of a personal post...

I've been changing my mind all day about this post, one minute wanting to post it & the next minute not but I've decided to bite the bullet and do it =]

After my last post I had quite a few comments asking why my face was uneven and what the scars were on my face. This is an issue I've tried to avoid on my blog. This is why I haven't posted many photo's of my face, I'm quite conscious about the fact the fact the scars show up on pictures... see below!

I was attacked by a dog when I was 9, he ripped a large chunk from the right side of my face. He was my dog and he had a brain tumour, he didn't know what he was doing and was sadly put down after attacking me. I was left with half of my top lip missing and a chunk from the side of my face gone.

I'm not going to go on and on about the various treatments I've had as I've had quite a few and it's mostly medical jargon. I probably won't have any more operations or plastic surgery now that I've reached my 20's, the recovery process takes too long and I'm not too bothered about the appearance of my scarring anymore. When I was younger it bothered me alot, my scars were alot more noticeable and people in the street would stare, this made me feeling like an act in the circus and I just wanted to hide away. Now that I'm older I take it on the chin alot easier, people cannot normally spot my scarring unless they get close and even if they do it doesn't bother me anymore.

I'm aware that this post is one big long ramble and it probably doesn't make any sense but I wanted to write this to explain why I may look slighly different in my photo's!

If you have any questions feel free to ask me, it really doesnt bother me & thankyou for taking the time to read this my lovelies.

Mini Boots Haul

Good evening dolls =]

Boots currently have 3 for 2 on make up and me being the make up addict that I am I couldn't resist so on my lunch break I popped along to Boots & picked up the following...

Rimmel Extra Wow Mascara £5.49
Barry M 'Peach Melba' £1.99
Barry M 'Mushroom' £1.99

Natural Collection Blush - Peach Melba £1.99
Natural Collection Lipstick - Raspberry £1.99
Natural Collection Nail Polish - Hibiscus £1.99

This little lot should have cost me £15.44 but it actually cost me £11.46!

I've been desperate to try Natural Collection so I decided to pick up a few bits! I might have to go back & pick up a few more bits *hangs head in shame*

Some close ups & swatches...

Natural Collection - Peach Melba

Natural Collection - Raspberry

Barry M - Peach Melba & Mushroom

I am in Love with the blush & lipstick! I cannot believe the quality for the price, the packaging may not be eye catching but it does it's job. I'd rather pay for a quality product than great packaging!

Overall I'm very happy with my mini haul and I'll be posting a review on the mascara soon!

Have you picked up anything in the offer?

These are a few of my favourite things - August!

Hello Ladies!

I can't believe it's time for my August favourites already, where has this year gone?! It's Christmas soon, yay!!

Here are the things I've been loving this month:

MUA Heaven & Earth Palette:

This needs no introduction. It's been featured on various blogs and there's a reason for that, It's amazing! The pigmentation is great, there is a fab selection of neutral shades to choose from and it costs £4!!!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation:

This has been a firm favourite of mine for a good few months now. It has great staying power, It gives great coverage and it's very affordable. This has to be one of my favourite drugstore foundations ever.

Bourjois Delice De Poudre Bronzer:

I can't believe I'm going to admit this but I had never tried this before I bought it a couple of weeks ago! It's a HG product for many bloggers and I now know why. I use this bronzer to contour and to give me some colour, It doesn't make me look orange and It's not too shimmery. Winner!

Mac MSF Natural:

This is my favourite setting powder of all time. I have fairly oily skin so I have to set most foundations. This leaves my skin looking flawless and makes my foundation last so much longer. I'm sure I don't need to convince you because many of my lovely followers rave about this.

J.Lo La Glow:

I picked this up on offer in the Perfume shop for £12! It's a lovely fresh fruity scent with good staying power. I'm now only wearing my Chanel perfume for special occasions because I'm scared of it running out so this makes a great cheap everyday perfume =]

Hair Doughnut:

I'm not very talented when it comes to hair, I either have my hair straight or in a simple ponytail. This is my new favourite accessory! It keeps the hair off my face but makes me look like I've spent alot longer on my hair than I actually did! This was £1 in Primark. I have since picked up a brown version which matches my hair alot better!

Last but not least this is my random favourite of the month.... my new iPhone 4! I had the 3GS in black and this isn't much different in terms of features but I love the white colour, is that sad?!

I can't believe this is my last favourite post before my driving test! Hopefully a full driving license will feature in next months favourites!

What have been your favourites this month?
