Elemis White Flowers Eye & Lip Make-Up Remover

DSC01808

Launching this month, Elemis have a brand new eye and lip make-up remover, a bi-phase product which, when shaken, will remove any sort of mascara or lippie with ease.

I have to admit, I do wear rather a lot of eye makeup – there is my Laura Mercier base, a shadow or two, a liner, then black mascara, so easy removal is pretty much essential. There really is nothing worse than dousing a cotton pad in some concoction which then just smears black down my face whilst stinging my eyes, so I was overjoyed when the bottle popped through the door. Elemis is brand that I really trust – my sensitive skin has never had any adverse reactions to the brand, and their newest offering is no different. The product comes in a clear plastic bottle which is perfect for knowing exactly how much you have left, and it is a clear liquid consisting of marine spring water and natural emollients which are shaken prior to use. I applied the remover to a couple of cotton pads, then applied to my eye area, pressed down and wiped – magic – nearly all my eye make-up had vanished! There was none of the tugging I have dealt with using other brands, nor was there a greasy residue left behind; instead my eyes just felt cool, refreshed, and clean.

The make-up remover is also rather good at swiping off whatever lipstick you have chosen for the day. I tried it out on Shu Uemura’s Rouge Unlimited PK355, a matt coral-red which is super long-lasting, and leaves a strawberry stain on my lips, and again, only a swipe or two was needed for complete removal! The way this remover manages to deal with even my most intense mascaras (Dior waterproof Blackout) or lipsticks is super impressive, especially when considering how gentle on the skin the formula is. This has definitely become my go-to at night, and I can’t recommend it enough!

The Make-Up Remover is priced at £17 and is available here.

Happy 4th July!!!

Although I’m not American, I’ve spent just enough time there to feel I must acknowledge the celebration. I hope your July 4th is filled with s’mores, sparklers and loved ones!

Kitsch Hair Elastics

I know that ponytails aren’t exactly the cutting edge of fashionable hairstyling, but sometimes nothing looks better than one which is all swinging and swooshy. I have a sort of fear of showing hair elastics unless they are the plain black ones, but I am just in love with Kitsch’s offerings. All glittery and in a variety of colour choices, my go-to gym style doesn’t feel so boring. I opted for the glittery bands, and these babies sparkle!
