Super Facialist Daily Brightening Cleanser

Una Brennan Firming Brightening Cleanser

Always on the lookout for new skincare to try I decided to purchase the Super Facialist by Una Brennan Neroli Firming Daily Brightening Cleanser when on offer. 

This cleanser helps to make sure skin is "left feeling renewed, smoother and more youthful-looking" as it is formulated with antioxidant Mango Seed Oil and Hibiscus extract to deliver optimum cleansing benefits.

It also contains a tightening Polysaccharide combined with Hyaluronic Acid, known for its hydrating benefits, which further boost this gentle yet effective cleanser. Other ingredients include: grape seed oil, sweet orange peel oil, bitter orange oil and lemon peel oil.

The first time I used it was with my morning routine and come night time I noticed my skin was really soft as I cleansed it again, and that after only one use. It also smells really nice and has a gel like consistency that doesn't foam up but removes makeup, oil and dirt effectively.

Do try Super Facialist Daily Brightening Cleanser if you are looking for a gently exfoliating cleanser with no sulphates. You can find it in Boots.

The Spring Summer Wishlist

celine trio dupe, ikea desk, light jeans

Here is my current wishlist, hopefully I will be getting my hands on these beauties soon:

LG Spirit: I've been thinking about getting a new phone and this one is quite affordable at only £130. It has an 8mp camera and 4.7" screen, so it would be great for using my with favourite app, Instagram. Plus on pay as you go it's 3p a minute, 2p for texts and 1p for a mb of data!.

Nikon 35mm Lens: I love the shallow depth of field that can be achieved with a bigger aperture and this sounds like a good option. If you're looking for a new lens check this one out as at the moment it has £20 cashback.

Elie Saab L'eau Couture: As the days are getting brighter and warmer, it only makes sense to start wearing a lighter and fresher fragrance. After sniffing out a few samples I think this is the one I will be investing my £50+ Boots Advantage card points on. Love the fruity floral notes and the vanilla and almond base. 

Paul Costelloe Triplet Bag: After seeing the Celine Trio bag around so much, I fell in love with it but not so much with the price tag. This Paul Costelloe alternative is a great dupe at only 1/10 of the price and has a removable strap so it can be worn as a clutch as well. 

Light Wash Skinny Jeans: I've been looking for the perfect pair of light wash jeans for so long and so far I haven't been able to find them. These ones from ASOS look quite nice but I'd need to see them in person as I'm not that big on online shopping and prefer to browse in the shops. 

Ikea Micke Desk: I love stationery as well as painting, so a desk's a necessity and this one's tiny so it could fit anywhere. Really like the minimal design and the concealed storage, as well as the fact that you can get other pieces from the range for extra storage. 

Minimal Dressing Room (not pictured): I would love to have a dressing room or closet like the ones I pictured in my last post. To have all my clothes, shoes and accessories organised like that would make it so much easier to get ready in the morning and it also makes the space look amazing. 

Will keep you posted on any wishlist breakthroughs. What's on your wishlist?

Cute Bags for Any Occasion

One of my favourite things to buy are bags, even though I already have enough (or do I?) so I'm always looking for a good bargain. At http://www.shoespie.com/ they have a many shoes (duh) but also a wide array of bags for ladies online. With so many choices it's hard to pick a favourite, but these 2 options below I really liked. 

Cute Bags for Any Occasion Cute Bags for Any Occasion

I have been looking for more spring and summer friendly clothes and accessories to wear for the next couple of seasons and pastel tones are something that I think would be perfect. The bag on the left features a lovely pastel pink tone with a twin handle and also a long strap to carry over your shoulder if you like. As a little extra it has a small satin ribbon attached in the form of a bow to the base of the handle. If you like cute bags, definitely consider this one. 

The bag on the right is perfect for a night out, party or special occasion. It is a small clutch bag embellished all over which makes it look very sparkly. The black base fabric makes it great for any occasion as it will match with everything. What I love about this bag is the gorgeous decoration on the top with faux diamonds that looks so elegant. Have a look on the Shoespie website as they also have leather clutch bags.

A bag is an accessory that can make or break your outfit, so big or small, sparkly or plain, you are sure to find a bag to your liking in Shoespie.
