Garnier Summer Body

We all want that little bit of a glow in the winter, and for those of you that aren't fake tan users; this is the perfect solution.

Out of all the gradual tanners I've used, this is one of my favourites. The consistency is really smooth and light and therefore really easily soaks into your skin and is never streaky. The lotion itself smells really nice, like apricots. I've been using the one in "Light" as I'm not bothered about looking brown and tanned all the time, I just that added glow as my natural skin tone is quite tanned anyway. The tan pay off isn't darastic, you wont really notice it straight away; for me after one application, it gives me a slight glow after its been absorbed, but this is the type of product that you need to build up to get a good colour payoff if you want to look to like you've just come back from a holiday. It's also a really good moisturiser, hence the reason why I use it most days and it's not greasy so I also find it quite good for my face. This is definetly an essential mine and will be repurchasing it.

Kleenex Facial Cleansing Wipes Extra Gentle

I'm so sorry for neglecting you blog! It's been a while, so I'm going to take full advantage of a dull rainy Saturday afternoon by dashing out as many post as my creative juices will let me..

I've recently gotten back into having make-up wipes in my night time skin routine as I haven't really been using them... Whilst going round a shop (of which I cant remeber what it was) I saw the Kleenex Facial  Extra Gentle Cleansing Wipes on offer for £1.50 and decided to try them out.

I expected good things from this brand as Kleenex tissies are renound for their soft and gentleness on your sniffly nose or runny eyes. Yeah, they are really soft and the wipe its self is thick, of good quality with fibres tightly woven together so you dont get any of that fluffy debris you get from cheaper wipes. However, its a really weird on with this wipe - they dont glide smoothly across your face; they sort of pull at the skin, as if it's causing friction, but thet aren't rough.. Does that make sense? Those of you that have tried these will know what I mean.. Also, I really hate the smell - I surpose it's becuase they're the sensitive ones - it's that kind of wierd chemical smell... On the other hand, I like the packaging and the good stickiness of the label which keeps them moist, and aditionally, they are very moist wipes. You get 24 wipes for around £2, which is alright, however I dont think this is going to be a repurchase.

What I Got...

I've been wanting these trousers for so long and finally got them. They're from River Island for £30, althought a little pricey for trousers; I adore them so much and they will definetly get worn. So PPW (Price Per Wear :P) is defiently worth it. Also I took a photo of them, but it did not do them - epecially the colour - justice.

Then got a few things from Primark:

Some comfy, soft pj bottoms. £5
Green Cardigan £6
Cream Mittens £2
Pack of Two Gloves £1

I also bought some socks but they're bore'.. and another jumper but the photo wont upload...

Songs I'm Loving at the Moment...

This is my 2nd post of this title. It's a little irrelevant to my blog, but I just need to share these songs cause I love them so much right now!

The first one is Earthquake by Labrinth ft Tinie Tempah.
Labrinth is a musical genius. Even though he doesn't release loads himself, when he does, its just quality. And what he produces for other artists is just... :) SNM. And Tinie Tempah <3
Check out the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge Version too.

2. We Found Love - Rihanna ft Calvin Harris
Yeah, the video is quite explicit - it reminds me of that program Skins, but this song is actually really beautiful.

3. Lego House - Ed Sheeran

I just love Ed Sheeran so much! And I love the fact he used Rupert Grint (aka Ron Weasly) in the video which makes me love it even more!
What made me LOL in the comments of this video was; someone was like "Since when did Rupert Grint sing?" They were being serious too :P

Hope you liked this post. What songs are you loving at the moment?

Superdrug 3 for 2

I recently got a newsletter via email from Superdug about their 3 for 2 (getting the cheapest item free) offer on ALL cosmetics. I simply couldn't resist; so I went down today and got 3 things that I've wanted for ages..

As there was so much to choose from it took me absolutely ages to decide but I ended up getting:

*Loreal Lash Architect 4D, £10.99

Excuse the annoying Superdrug security label which are hellish to get of... 
*Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, £9.99

AGGH, so annoying. Sometimes they upload the wrong way. Why?
*Sleek Face Contour Kit, £6.50

This came up to £20.98 all together, and my goodness, I feel guilty spending this much in one go on make up, I never have before :S. But I spent 100 of my 'Beauty points' do I got £1 off but still... :/ Oh well...

Reviews coming soon! Have you tried any of these products, what do you think?
