Mini Review: Garnier skin products

Bonjourno my readers :) hope everyone is doing well. Here are some Garnier Products that I've recently purchased and how I feel about them.

Garnier Skin Products:

So I've never found a set product that I love to use on my skin, so to help my search I decided to try these three products. The first product (left) is part of the Garnier Pure Active range and it's a basically a spot reducing moisturizing lotion. I haven't had any problems with this product yet, however, I will probably need to use it for a bit longer before I can give you all a reliable review. My one worry is that because it is a spot reducing product, it contains salicylic acid which is a drying out agent. Due to my more dry skin I have only been using this product every second night. I am also apprehensive about using it in the morning as I'm not certain that it would be a good base on which to place my foundation. 

The second product (middle) is the Garnier Even Daily Moisturiser which I have been using when I'm not using the previously mentioned, Garnier Pure Active Moisturiser. I find that it is light on the skin, however, its hydrating and I've enjoyed using this product. 

My third and favourite product is the Garnier Even Toner(right). When I bought it, I thought that it was expired because the texture is an unusually thicker milky texture. However, after a quick google, I realised that in fact it was a useable. After that day I've extremely enjoyed the soft and clean toner. Its really light and fresh on the skin. Especially due to my dry skin, I've enjoyed the fact that it doesn't dry out my skin.

I hope you readers have benefitted from this post, feel free to leave any comments that you have regarding these products below... I would love to hear how your skin type reacted to them.

Secret beauty tips

Morning (for me) world :)

Sorry that I haven’t blogged in a while, but my inspiration has been at a minimum. However, I have now put some thoughts towards this blog post so here goes …

I thought that today I'd share with you three of my secret beauty tips.

1.    Run out of make-up remover/ staying over at the boyfriend and desperately needing to prevent raccoon eyes in the morning – not a sexy look :P The solution: Baby oil is your first choice, extra moisturising and  soft on the eyes. Vaseline is the next, moisturising and a secret eyelash growth serum. Yes that’s right, your little tub of lip balm could be a solution to your stubby eyelashes – give it a try. Both these products will (when placed on a cotton swab) remove the remains of eye make-up.

2.    For those with curly hair (LIKE ME), I know that brushing those locks gives you a 80s fro but lets be serious. That twice a year comb through is impossible so I have a secret solution: Kiddies detangler… My preferred brand is the Organics product (complete with a cute octopus on the bottle). Once out of the shower, after a fresh shampoo and conditioning, spray the detangler onto your wet locks and brush… I like to do this once a week to keep to mane under control. If your results were like mine, you’ll find that your curls sit nicely once they’re dry. YAY for controlled curly hair!

3.  A little birdie once told me that the main base to all face powder is baby powder.Therefore on those days when you're getting a little extra greasy in certain areas, instead of caking on more powder, just add a dab of baby powder. It will absorb the excess oil without making you look more and more caked throughout the day. 

 Thank you for reading. Keep checking my blog out for more useful secret beauty tips <3
