My love for this cleanser just continues to grow! Your makeup literally just melts off with no need for harsh rubbing; i've never found a product that takes off every scrap of my makeup so well! You apply this cleanser onto your dry skin and fully made up face; the camomile in the product is so gentle so your skin is not aggravated in the slightest! When products claim to be for "all skin types" I never usually believe it because I don't see how something that is suitable for a dry skin would be good for someone like me that has combination/oily skin, but this product works perfectly! Don't be worried about this cleanser being an oil; after washing it off with a hot flannel, there is no excess residue left on your skin! 

I used to use endless amounts of cotton pads and Bioderma to take off the majority of my makeup and then went in with this product to get off whatever was left over; but this is so gentle yet strong enough to remove even waterproof mascara that my Bioderma has been pushed to the back of my skin care drawer. You can use this cleanser  all over your eye area and open your eyes while it is still on and there is no irritation whatsoever! 
I can't recommend this product more, I have the balm for when I'm going somewhere as it is more suitable to travel with, the balm melts into an oil on your skin and does exactly the same as the bottle!

Have you tried The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil?

The only product to clear up my skin!

OH MY GOD! I'm guessing a lot of people will be in my position when it comes to blemish prone skin! NOTHING you use works, it is usually all a hype and usually ends up drying out your skin rather than fixing it! I have always battled with minor acne (usually hormonal) but still always had at least one or two blemishes! It's so difficult having this oily skin when the vast majority of your friends have beautiful clear skin! I have been on the search for something for years to help me finally have beautiful skin; and now I've finally found it!! 

I have needed to right this blog post about this product for so long its not even funny! MD FORTE cleanser no 2, my absolutely holy grail, cannot live without product! This beauty has absolutely cleared up my skin and I actually get scared of running out of it! When I got told about this product from a good friend, I thought it was going to be another product claiming to help but never would! How wrong could I be?! My skin rarely gets spots now and if I do it is one or two on my chin that go within the next few days thanks to this magic cream! 

I use this product after thoroughly cleansing my skin. I use The Body Shop camomile cleansing oil to remove all of my makeup (best makeup remover product ever btw), you pop it onto your full makeup face completely dry and it literally melts off everything! I do this twice and then follow up with my Estee Lauder perfectly clean Normal/Combination wash just to make sure my skin is completely clean, and there is no scraps of makeup left! I then follow with this cleanser on lightly dampened skin and just rub a small amount all over my face (avoiding the eye are) and do this for about 5 minutes none stop just so I know every area has been covered with this cleanser! I then use a clean hot flannel to take it away and my skin is left feeling so clean and soft! I have noticed if you do have a spot this can make it sting a little but I enjoy that feeling because I know it must be working!

I use this product morning and night (as your supposed to do for the first 3 months then just use it on a night) and the difference in my skin is just amazing! I now get compliments on what lovely skin I have when I'm working and this has never happened to me before! It makes me a bit emotional actually because this is something I have never experienced before! I feel like my makeup looks better now and my foundation looks flawless because I FINALLY have a good base to work with!

If you have never tried MD FORTE cleanser before, I highly recommend that you do because it has honestly changed my life!!

Warm, smokey eye!

My first makeup look I wanted to post on my blog is this warm, smokey eye! I created this makeup look today and absolutely love it! Because of the unusual colour of my eyes, I have found they definitely suit warm colours best (thats not to say I don't play with cooler colours from time to time). I would say this is definitely my go to look when I want something that looks like it took a lot of time to do but in actual fact it took about 10 minutes!

I'm baaaaack!

Today I have decided it is time for me to do a new blog post and get my blog back up and running! I wanted to start constantly blogging last year but that plan seemed to go out the window; this new post is well over due and I can't wait to start writing again!

 I have been so busy this year already as I have started to do makeup freelance since finally becoming confident enough to use another face as a canvas rather than my own! I am loving experimenting with different looks and feel like since working for Estee Lauder I have had the HUGE privilege of using new released products etc on customers and gaining the best knowledge of products! 

My new posts of 2015 will include a variety of different categories from makeup looks, skincare advice, my views on new makeup releases, day to day activities, health and fitness and all round beauty hoarding! I think it's so clear that most girls these days are addicted to makeup and I can't wait to start chatting with other people going through my addiction haha!
