Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 Wash and Mask

I don't know why I am only just talking about this! I have been using this product for years now and I can't express enough how good it is! I bought this when I was a teenager in school. I used to wear a bit of foundation, powder, bronzer and mascara plus tons of concealer because I was getting spots. That was simply because my poor skin was not being taken care of. I was not removing my makeup properly- which is understandable, I had no clue about skincare. Once I bought this wash my skin was back to it's clear self!

What's good?

I am going to start off by saying that this is the best skincare product I have EVER used. Now, I haven't tried lots of high end products because I simply don't have the budget and I have sensitive skin which has only ever  reacted to expensive products. I don't feel at my age I need to spend all my money on expensive products and the drugstore has really upped their game! I use this wash everyday and it lasts me forever. Whenever I come to repurchase it is always on some deal which is amazing but I'd obviously purchase it if it was full price anyway! It costs £3.79 but it's often on offer for £2.53 when there are 'save 1/3' deals! I use this at the end of the day to wash off my makeup. It removes my makeup well and I never get spots because of makeup build up anymore. This is really good at reducing my spots too and clearing them. I like how you can use this as a mask, I have used it a couple of times this way but I certainly prefer it as a facial wash.

What's bad?

I have NOTHING bad to say about this... sorry not sorry!

Would I recommend?

Hell yeah! I recommend this to anyone who is suffering with spots. Especially teenagers who can't afford a skincare routine. I used to use this on it's own until now as I have decided to try masks, toners and moisturisers and always been fine. I do have dry skin though so everyone will be different. Also, my skin is very sensitive and I never have had a problem using this.

Do you love this too? If you haven't tried it, please do!

My Trip To Venice

Italy is such a beautiful place to visit. I went for 3 days and it was just enough for me. It was a good break for me and the weather was amazing... maybe a little too hot for all the walking. I stayed at Hotel Anastasia which was right by San Marco Square. It was a cute little hotel which was right in the centre. Everything was in walking distance and you are right by the shops and lots of restaurants.

Garnier Skin Active Soothing Botanical Toner

I have tried a few Garnier products and I am a fan of their skin and hair products so when I saw this product in Superdrug I had to try it. I recently purchased a toner from The Body Shop so I was interested to see if this is any better as it is cheaper. I picked up the toner for dry and sensitive skin to suit me but I think there are other variations. So if you are new to toners, they are used to remove left over makeup after cleansing. This product promises to tone the skin leaving it feeling soothed by the rose water. A soothing product is amazing for my skin as it can become irritated sometimes. The bottle is the same as the other cleansing type products which I like, the rose on the bottle is super pretty which makes it recognisable if you have the other products.

Tarte Maneater Must-Haves Collection

I decided to purchase the Tarte Maneater Collection as it was such a bargain! All these products are worth way over £100 together however I managed to get the set for £43 from QVC UK. Also, I have never tried anything from Tarte before so I justified the purchase more so I could discover the brand and see if it actually does have any must-haves. I love the packaging of the collection, it is so me! I haven't used this products properly- this post is just a first impressions so I can't say I'm a full time lover of Tarte yet.

Essence Eye & Face Palette

Since recently discovering Essence and finding out how great the products I have tried are for the price, I have been obsessed with the stand! Whenever I pop into Wilko's I have to look at the stand and something catches my eye every time! This little palette looked interesting because firstly, the colours are all wearable and secondly I have never tried their actual face and eye products (just lip products). I think picking this up was a good idea as I have a rough idea of how their other face and eye items have to offer.

The Body Shop Haul

I have never really been interested in The Body Shop as I thought it was just all about body creams and scrubs that I didn't really need. The only products I had used were the bath bits you get in a box with some ribbon on that you get as a cheap gift- which I thought was just average not going to lie. However, when I took a trip into there with my friend on our lunch break I discovered that it was full of skincare products that interested me! I was amazed at all the products on display, I have definitely been missing out. Another reason why I haven't ever checked out the shop before is because the shop in my town is always quiet, going into a shop to browse with employees starring at me gives me anxiety!

Nivea Daily Essentials Sensitive Day Cream Review

I have been after a day cream for a while now. I want a moisturiser that I can wear everyday under my foundation that won't make my skin look oily, break me out or feel too thick. If you saw my last post, you will see one of my failed attempts of finding a daily moisturiser! Anyway, I found the Nivea day cream in savers for about £3 so I decided to give it a go. I picked up the sensitive version as I really do have sensitive skin. I didn't think I did till trying out new skin care recently. I have never had problems with Nivea before, so I had no doubts that this would harm my skin.
