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 :)

The beautiful Natalie at Beauty has no label gave me this award over a month ago now (sorry for being lazy!) and it made my day :) so thank you very much Natalie :) she has an amazing blog which I always look forward to reading so go and follow her! :)

The rules:
1. Thank the person that gave this to you :) Go on, give them a virtual hug!
2. Copy the award and put it on your blog.
3. List 3 things you love about yourself ♥
4. Post a picture you love (e.g a person you adore etc.)
5. Tag 5 people you wish to pass this award on to :)

Three things I love about myself:
1. I love that I have an amazing family and boyfriend that always stick by me even if im being a bit of a bitch or if im going through a rough patch so thank you :)

2. I love that I can get over things pretty quickly so if something bad has happened then I manage to pull myself back together much quicker than others as this makes things that little bit easier to manage

Review: Nivea Calm and Care Deodorant

So i've had this for a couple of months now and thought I would give you a little review on it :) I bought this product because I have always suffered from sore underarms after shaving and as the hair on my body grows back quickly (everywhere apart from my head!) I have to shave under my arms everytime I shower which is every other day now but was everyday for a long time meaning that I get very sore and irritated underarms. I have tried putting moisturiser on it but it never really helped that much so I thought I would give this a try.

They say:
Nivea Calm & Care 24h Anti-Perspirant Deodorant Spray with Provitamin B5 & Witch Hazel. Helps support your skin's recovery after shaving.
  • Specially designed formula, with Provitamin B5 & Witch Hazel, helps calm and soothe the skin after shaving.
  • Leaves your underarms soft, smooth and looking beautiful.
  • 24h confidence, anti-perspirant protection.
  • Alcohol free, no colourants, dermatologically approved.

I say:
I really like this deodorant, it does what it says in that it really soothes the skin after shaving, my underarms looked so much better after using this for a couple of days so much so that I actually didn't have to always make sure that my underarms aren't on show by not putting my arms in the air etc. which is something I haven't been able to do since shaving. Especially now I have started using disposable razors which can irritate your underarms more than other razors this really is a god send for me.

There is a downside though in that I don't feel it has 24h anti-perspirant protection but this is easily overcome by using one that is better at this (I use Mitchum roll-on which has 48h protection).

All in all I really like this deodorant and it does the job that I bought it for which is to protect and calm my underarms which is does well :) You can also buy this in a roll-on and cost's £1 on offer from Boots at the moment :) recommendddd :)
