L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution

IMG_1628 IMG_1631 IMG_1639
Hey guys! Here's a post I have managed to prepare in between my holidays for you to read.

A few months ago I was casually having a browse in Boots as you do, and came across this product. I picked it up as I had not seen it before and it caught my eye particularly because of the fact that it said it was a, micellar solution. I'm sure you guys who reads beauty blogs has heard practically everyone rave about the Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micellar solution, however, it's not that easy to get hold of, so I thought I'd give this L'Oreal version a go.
I got this free with my Boots points which was another bonus for me, yay! The L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution claims to, remove all traces of face and eye make-up as well as, toning and smoothing skin's overall appearance. 
I have used this a few times now on a large cotton wool pad to remove my day's make-up. The solution feels really refreshing on the skin more so than make-up cleansing wipes do. I also love the fact that the product feels like it's getting deep down in to the skin to really remove the make-up in it's entirety. To remove my eye make-up I held the pad on my lids for a few seconds before rubbing gently. I have to say, the solution did sting my eyes which I wasn't impressed by. I hate when make-up removers sting my eyes, as this is why I tend to stick to removing my make-up using cleansing wipes followed by a facial cleanse. It wasn't an unbearable sting, but it did feel uncomfortable. 
The L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution is a cheap, £3.32 from Superdrug so I do think it's worth it. I haven't tried the Bioderma alternative so can't compare.

Have you tried both products? Which one do you prefer?

Updates & Holidays!

(Image from Tumblr)

Hey guys. Thought I'd do a quick post to update you on my blog and any updates that I have. I haven't posted as frequently as I would have liked recently, and that's because I've been busy with work and organising/getting everything for my holidays.
I'm away until early August so I will not have any posts until I am back. (I have tried to schedule posts but it NEVER works?! Not sure exactly what I am doing wrong). When I am back I am hoping to have quite a few holiday outfit posts as I am taking my camera with me on the second part of my holiday, so stay tuned for that.

I'll see you when I'm back!

HawianOOTD London
(Hawaiian Cropped Blouse: Motel Rocks Sample Sale/Jeans: Topshop/Shoes: Converse/Bag: Cambridge Satchel)

Recently, I went to the Motel Rocks Sample Sale in London about a month ago. Now, I knew it would be busy and queues were to be expected, but I did not expect it to be THAT crazy. I could barely get to the clothes and walking was almost impossible. If you thought Primark was bad, think again haha. I tried to just focus on getting what I wanted and leaving as quick as I could and this blouse I instantly snapped up and kept a tight grip on. I love the bright floral prints which remind me of the ugly yet cute Hawaiian shirts which have made a comeback. I got this for a mere £7! There were so many bargains to be found on the day and I really do love this piece.
I wore this outfit out in London to go shopping with fellow fashion blogger, Andrea. We had a lovely look around the Topshop Oxford Circus sale and a nice bite to eat at Leon which was yummy. 
I paired the cropped top with these Topshop Baxter high-waisted jeans which I like but unfortunately they've started to get really baggy on me which is not cool. A pair of Black Joni jeans may be next on my fashion wishlist...
