Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips- Review

OMG... I am so in love with these nose strips by Biore, I bought them two weeks ago from Boots for £7.99 and now i can't get enough. This review is going to be so short and sweet because I don't have a lot to report  on lol. 

Firstly I heard about this product around in the blogging atmosphere and was keen to try it, so one day as I was shopping for my essentials in Boots I noticed the whole range of Biore products (I am also keen to try the rest of the range) and saw this little baby on the shelf. 

{Biore nose strips- 6 pack}

-What it does & How to use-
The nose strips works by removing deep dirt and blackheads from clogged pores. By removing the strip from the packet and washing your face, you have to apply the strip to a wet nose in order to let it stick down. And in just 10 minutes it does its job and you can attempt to remove it gently. Lol be careful not to tug as it can be painful- the packet advises that if difficult to remove then you should dampen the strip.

I was absolutely shocked with the results o.O
Its incredible how you can see the dirt and all the other muck and nastiness that is hidden among the skin, but it does work wonders. It left my nose so soft and I felt like (I dunno if this is meant to happen) it had somewhat minimized my pores on my nose. The pack does say that after using weekly ''the appearance of pores will diminish.'' I found that after using it the next morning my nose was not oily at all considering my oiliest point on my face is my nose so its a win win product for me A*!

So that being said this gets a complete 100% from me as a quality product and something that I will continue to purchase. I am looking forward to trying the rest of the brand and look forward to reviewing them.

Let me know if you have tried it and how you got on with it lol x

New! Neutrogena pink grapefruit scrub- Review

Hey all, so i have recently been using the Neutrogena visibly clear pink grapefruit daily scrub. And it is slowly becoming one of my favorites, although I don't use it daily as a 'scrub', i tend to use it around 3 to 4 times a week instead whilst switching between my beloved Simple face wash. 

The smell is divine and actually smells like fruit and not some random chemical concoction. I have now been using it for 2-3 weeks and only have positive things to say about it. Whilst applying it onto a wet face I massage it in using circular motions in order for the beads to unclog my pores and lift any dirt and excess oil I may have. I am particularly impressed with the micro beads being gentle to the face and not feeling rough. After patting my face dry i am always surprised at how moisturised my face feels as you know there are some products out there that have a tendency to dry out the skin. 

{Neutrogena visibly clear £4.95}

It has easily become something that I will repurchase over and over and I will keep in my skincare regime. So after using it for a few weeks now I can  say hand on heart that it has left my skin looking a lot brighter and softer without the need to use it daily, and i was especially chuffed that it didn't break me out because really who needs that?

* £4.95 at boots bargain price for something that works so well.
*No break out
*Leaves skin fresh soft and moisturised
*Has one of the best smells ever
* Exfoliating micro beads are not harsh
*Gentle to skin
*And actually works!

Have you tried the new Neutrogena? Or do you have any other recommendations?
Let me know...
P.s- Sorry there was no post up last week but keep an eye out for another post up tomorrow!

The Perfume Hunt!

Hi beauts, I have recently been on the hunt for some new scents. I am quite fussy when it comes to perfume and don't really tend to copy what everyone else likes, not that I'm trying to be an 'individual' or 'different', I just want to find something for me.

On my hunt i was overpowered by so many different perfume smells and as usual constantly asked by the counter ladies 'do you need any help' to which i replied 'no not really' but as per usual even though 'Amy' goes away 'Sandra' comes back over to ask me the exact same thing. ¬_¬

{Daisy-Marc Jacobs, Viva la Juicy- Juicy Couture, Manifesto- YSL, Agent Provocateur Eau de Parfum, Pink Bouquet- Moschino, Very Irresistible- Givenchy}

I eventually collected a number of tester strips to which I'm still considering which i like most.... I love perfumes that are either sweet- but not candy sickening sweet, floral ie; any Marc Jacobs or fruity. And this is the collection i now have in my bag....

I did also try a few others but they never made the list and weren't worthy enough of the blog post. I was particularly disappointed with Prada Candy which i tested on me... let's just say i won't comment lol.

Have any perfumes you think i should try.
What are your faves, let me know.

New nails? Rimmel Nail Polish!

I don't know if you guys know this but I am a big fan of Rimmel nail polish. They have such a big variety of colours, they stay on for ages and dry ever so quick.
So recently there has been two new additions to the polish family!
Rimmel Grey Matter (805) £3.69
Rimmel Grey Matter is such a lovely colour a light shade of grey that is so in right now- and is also part of their 60seconds 'drying' range. (although i can vouch they probably take a little longer than 60sec) I love the fact that this particular colour only needs 1 to 2 coats and isn't messy and coats with a simple stroke thanks to it having a flat bristle brush.

Rimmel Sweet As Sugar (704) £2.99
Rimmel Sweet as Sugar is the perfect powder baby blue and is so right for spring, again i love how tidy applying Rimmel's nail polish is,  as well as how quick they take to dry. And of course the fact that its long lasting.

I always think why spend your money on nail varnish that is going to cost you anything near six quid when you can get just as good quality colours and wear out of polish that would cost a quid or 2/3?
So here it is my new additions to the family, whats your fave nail varnish brand or colour?

P.S- Spending ban update i have so far only spent £20 in the last 4 weeks on essentials and this is my first treat so yay me x
