Special Delivery :)

I was so excited when the doorbell rang the second time this morning as I was hoping so much that It would be my delivery and it was...

Yes I ordered the Benefit Gabby Makeup bag and I love it :) its so pretty, good material and its just love at first sight! haha :) I ordered it a couple of weeks ago and had a shock when it said it wouldn't arrive till the 6-26th of October! When I really wanted it to arrive before the 25th Sept when I go to uni and im so glad that it has :) It cost me about £21 with delivery from the Benefit website which is more than would normally spend on a makeup bag but it was so worth it :)

It came beautifully wrapped in this tissue paper which I luckily didn't have to rip when I got my bag out :)

I also got some free samples of the high beam and hello flawless which I was shocked to see came with a very small sponge as that is what they recommend to apply it with :)

This is the inside of the bag and my dog jumped on my bed wanting to be in the picture :) as you can see it has 5 slots for different brushes and a deep part to put in all of your makeup in. Im so excited to use this and I can see its going to be really handy :)

Have you girls made any great buys recently that you can't wait to use? :)

Im backkkk :) I know I've been gone from ages but so much has happened, I've been on holiday to the seaside for a week then came back and spent a week with the boyf at my house by ourselves where I turned into a proper house wife (haha). Then had to collect my results which weren't bad but unfortunately I didn't get into my chosen uni but I did manage to find a place through clearing at Bedfordshire studying psychology :) (if you know anyone going there please get in touch as I know nobody!) Since then i've been preparing for uni and spending time with friends before I leave as I'll be living there.. anywayyyyyyy

Im back and I have a HUGEEEE haul to show you all which has been growing over the past few weeks and some other posts for you all :)

Im only going away to Norfolk (UK) so I don't expect to have lovely weather or a tan but im still looking forward to getting away before my results with are on the 19th! when I will find out if I have got into my chosen uni or not.

Anyway hope you all have a good day and i'll see you in a couple of weeks :)

Skincare: Removing makeup/Night

To continue my skincare series here is what I do at night time to remove my makeup.

First of all I use a facewipe to remove most of my makeup, I use both of these depending on which I grap first. Both of these facewipes are really good and I would recommend both of these. The Johnson's baby ones are obviously mean't for a baby but work really well taking off makeup. You get 64 wipes in each pack which is more than you would get in any other pack available. These cost £2.39 from Sainsbury's which is a bargain. They are really soft and they smell nice as well, they do a really good job of taking of my makeup as well. The only thing that I don't like about these is that they are all connected in the pack so when you take one out the others are joined on so you have to stuff the next one back in so it doesn't go dry. The Simple ones are also really soft and nice and they come out one at a time so they are easier to use in that respect, they also have no smell to them. You get 25 wipes in each pack, they cost £2.97 but are on offer for £1.99 in Superdrug at the moment. I really like these as they're really wet so make taking off the makeup easy without causing any irritation to my skin. They are both really good but the Johnson's ones are much better value for money and do just as good a job as any other facewipe available

I then apply the cleanser which is a thick cream consistency to a cotton wool pad then dap it onto 5 places on my face (cheeks, chin, nose and forehead) then go over and move the pad in upward circular motions all over to remove any left over makeup on my face. This works very well as a cleanser taking off all excess makeup which is all I look for in a cleanser and it also keeps the skin clear. The cleanser costs £2.99 but is on offer for £1.99 in Superdrug. I then apply the toner to another cotton wool pad and use it in the same way as the cleanser, this also takes off any remaining makeup. This is also really soothing to the skin but tightens it as well which is why after I have used this I apply the Simple moisturiser to my face which then leaves my face feeling really soft and smooth. I have the old toner meaning that the packaging is now different but im pretty sure the product is still the same. The toner costs £2.99 as well but is on offer for £1.99 in Superdrug as well.

I would recommend all of these products as they work really well and leave my skin nice and soft and take off all of my makeup including eye makeup such as mascara. However this works for me and may not work for everybody as everybody has different skin, I have dry and sensitive skin but I can see this working for most people :)
