Caution: This is not a food

Here we go again, with my favourites for the past few weeks :)

First up is Boots Original Beauty Formula Cleansing Milk. You get 150 ml for £3.89! I guess the cheap price tag leaves this baby unnoticed.

This is awesome stuff. Just take some of the thick creamy cleanser, pour it over cotton wool and all the cake on the face comes off in just one freaking swipe!

When I am having a lazy day, I simply use this as a cleansing routine as its quick, easy and does the job well. It even leaves my face moisturized which is even better.

So basically its a fuss-free, fragrance free, cheap cleanser which everyone should have.

I love the milk-bottle/vintage inspired packaging, super cute!

and yeah - THIS IS NOT A FOOD! :P

Here's a list of ingredients for you to have a look at.

I was on the search for a matte, full coverage foundation since ages.

and finally I find this in a mousse foundation?! Pretty shocking, as I always found mousse foundations to be a gimmick really. They never work do they? Well not for me.

Here we have No 7's Intelligent Balance Foundation (£11).

I got the shade Buff. But as usual it is kinda light (and pink) for me. But this is not going to deter me from using up the entire (humongous 30 gm) pot. I should have got the shade Tan. Oh well, not the first time is it.

Anyway, on to the foundation. This is a hidden gem ladies. Seriously amazing and light whipped formula that glides on to a satin-matte finish on the skin. You won't even see when and how this blends so well. But you will see how cleverly this gives you full coverage.

It's like my skin but better (and flawless!).

It is pretty long lasting. You don't need powder to set this. You don't even need a brush to apply this you know. Its an amazing product for all the ladies who simply cringed at how 'glittery' Revlon Photoready was.

What I am trying to say is, you can't get better than this for £11.

These are Revlon Beyond Natural 'Defining' Lashes that I got sent.

They are ultra light. I am usually not very good with lashes really but I did not even feel I had these on the whole day, without any problems at all.

I guess it's the Revlon Precision Lash Adhesive that I used with them that worked wonders for me. I wasn't happy with the infamous Duo adhesive. But once the Revlon glue is on, the lashes stay put. It dries clear too which makes life a whole lot easier.

I simply love how natural and fluttery these are. Not over the top really. You can sport them easily on your casual day without thinking twice and without the fear of people noticing that you made an effort.

These are pretty short in length. As I have naturally long lashes, these blend in really well providing that extra volume to the lashes which is usually difficult to achieve with mascara.

Do check them out at Boots.

And lastly, Liz Earle's Superskin Concentrate (£37). I got this when I went for a skin consultation at one of their stores. Don't let the price deter you, try their mini version instead.

Their superskin moisturizer broke me out whereas this baby surprisingly did not. I have relatively dry skin during some days and this works just fine to restore my skins moisture and helping it stay supple and hydrated.

I use this once a day, at night after cleansing. Be sure to use not more than one pump as it may be a bit too rich for some of us.

And O-M-G, this smells freaking amazing! The blend of Lavender, Neroli and Rosehip Oil does aromatherapy in a bottle for me.

Don't be scared to try a Facial Oil ladies, as this one surely wont break you out, unless you are oily of course. It's got plant extracts which won't clog pores and should not result in a breakout.

Feel free to share your weekly favourites :)

Shabna said...

omg I have to try that cleansing milk! Also you need to stop posting No7 Foundations because I always go ahead and buy them! I need to finish my lift&luminate and this will definately be next!

My current favourite is the skin tonic from the same range as the cleansing milk. I bought the cleansing milk and skin tonic when they were on half price but I find oily cleanasers to be better so I've started using those. My mum loves the cleansing milk though.

Try the tonic, it's really good. It cleans your skin and doesn't leave ti feelign tight.

FauxChic said...

I've actually recently purchased the Boots cleansing milk, but in my case it has that sort of awkward scent that fortunately doesn't linger for long, but I really like it!
Good blog post :)

The cleansing milk is one gem of a find! It's so economical in price and yeah, the old-style bottle is adorable. :)

Melissa said...


I love cheap easy cleansera that just take your makeup off quickly. Sometimes I can't be bothered to go through a massive routine at night so it just makes things easier.

Dying to try the Superskin Concentrate now!


TiffanyMonet said...

I'm always on a lookout for products which can hydrate my dry skin...sadly can't lay my hands on this concentrate as the brand is unavailable in India.

Cynthia Z said...

I just ordered the Boots No. 7 Mousse foundation and the day gel and I can't wait to try it. I love their long-wearing lipstick, and if I love the foundation just as much, I will be trying more of this line.

Bridget said...

OMG, and those Revlon lashes look amazing! I have to check my local drugstore to see if they carry them.
