ELLE Free Gift

I've bought a few ELLE magazines in the past, but now I'm that little bit older I appreciate them much more - with the articles that actually relate to me and the stunning editorial pictures in them... I think from now on, I'm going to continue buying them when I have that few extra "bob" to spend...

But what made my buy this issue was the free gift; which is the Soap and Glory, Thick and Fast mascara. I've ben wanting to try out some of the Soap and Glory cosmetics and thought why not? ...As this mascara is worth £10, but buying the magazine, you get it for £3.90, plus the magazine which is pretty good.

So why not run down to the news-agents or supermarket and grab the March edition while you can :D And a reveiw on this mascara will be on it's way soon.

What I got...

Went to Westfield this morning as I've been saving for a while and wanted to have a bit of a splurge; I haven't really bought anything new in a while. I didn't buy much as one of my purchases is one of those "investment" pieces.. 

*Quirks (New McVities biscuits :D) - £1, Co-op
*Dry Shampoos - 99p each, Superdrug
*Tweezers - £1.99, Superdrug
*Longchamp Le Pliage Bag - £68, House of Fraser

Reviews on some of these things soon :)

Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser

I was looking round in Superdrug for a new face was thing and came across this. It's the Superdrugs own brand. It's a hot cloth cleanser - the same kinda thing to Liz Earles Cleanse and Polish, but this is much much cheaper. On first impressions I really liked it - it made my skin feel really fresh and clean after. But after using it for a while now, I love it even more!

It's in a big squeezy tube which I like as it's practical and you can get most of the product out when it's running out. The product it's self is a white, smooth, thick, creamy liquid - it's like a kind of like a body butter consistency but obviously comes in the tube. So you apply it all over your face, and it doesn't drip anywhere. After you use the muslin cloth that's included, which is nice and soft. It's really simple to use. It has a kind of fruity or something or other smell - I think it's a little coconuty with some other kind of smell - I cant quite put my finger on it...

Afterwards, it makes your skin feel so soft and clean and easily removes make up. After a few weeks of using it, I noticed that my skin was much clearer. It has vitamin E in it too which is also good for your skin. Overall, I really love this product and would definitely buy it again. I got it in when it was on offer for only £2.99 but it's usually £5.99 which is still pretty okay - just keep your eyes open for the offers.

MUA Clear Mascara

I thought I'd give this product a try as it was only £1 in Superdrug on the MUA stand. I wanted to try something alternative and new for my eyebrows - as recently, I've just been using my elf Eyebrow Kit. So I thought I'd shade in m eyebrows using an eyebrow pencil and set the hairs with this. But after a few days of using this, it shows to be quite a pathetic product to be quite honest...

Clear mascara is meant to give you a natural lash look but just longer and more separated. I tried it on my lashes to see if it worked on them, but it didn't either... I might as well have just been applying water to them... Even on my brows, it doesn't set them whatsoever. And as a matter of fact, when I pull the wand out - it looks like there's no product on there... The tube also just seems poorly made - like it's thin and flimsy, and also you have to shove the wand back in, you can't push it it lightly as it just wont go...

Yeah this was only a pound, but it could have at least done something... If your looking for a clear mascara, I wouldn't recommend this, but neither would I opt for a clear one anyway, (if you want a more natural look, just go for brown...) and neither would I recommend this for a brow gel...
