Undoubtedly, the most fashionable things in the world of dental care have to be coconut oil and charcoal. They’re a seemingly odd combination (after all who would think that something completely black would whiten teeth?!) but rather amazingly, Diamond Whites have managed to combine the two in their new Black Edition Liquid.
The Black Edition Liquid basically makes oil-pulling incredibly easy, as it’s a mix of coconut oil and charcoal. Diamond Whites recommend swishing it about for 15-20 minutes, but that can be a little hard, so I normally use it for around ten. Since it’s liquid already, you don’t need to faff around in the bathroom melting coconut oil. Instead, it’s ready to go, and within a single use I can see and feel the difference. Teeth look whiter and my mouth feels incredibly clean.
Diamond White Black Edition Liquid is priced at £9.99 and is available here.
Micellar water has played a major role in my skincare routine for the past couple of years. I love the feeling of super clean skin, so even after cleansing with a foaming formula, I tend to sweep a couple of drops of micellar water on a cotton pad over my face to make sure every trace of grime is gone.
The one issue I tend to have with the micellar waters that I’ve used in the past is that they don’t tend to remove my eye makeup. To really get rid of mascara and liners, I normally have to then turn to eye makeup remover to really make sure I don’t wake up with serious panda eyes.
To solve the problem, Garnier have infused their newest micellar water with oil which cleanses skin incredibly effectively, as well as leaving skin feeling soft and nourished, not greasy.
After cleansing my regular foaming choice (at the moment it’s Clinique) I just drop a couple of shakes of the micellar water onto a cotton pad and swipe over my face. I am obsessed with the scent of this stuff. It’s a super light, almost floral fragrance which smells super high end. It’s a real gem of a product!
If you have the habit of going to bed with your makeup on (no judgement, we’ve all done it). You need to run to Boots to buy a package of Garnier’s SkinActive Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Wipes.
Unlike a lot of wipes I’ve tried, Garnier’s newest doesn’t sting or strip skin. Instead, they effectively cleanse skin of makeup, with the same absolutely gorgeous scent.
Boots currently has the Micellar Water on offer for a teeny £3.99 and the wipes are £1.76.
Happy Bank Holiday! I hope you’re enjoying a gloriously lazy long weekend – I know I am! As well as trying to see a few friends, I’m also planning on giving myself something of a spa-day, and my cleanser of choice this weekend is Good Things Argan Oil Nourishing Cleansing Oil, a product which although affordable feels supremely luxurious to use!
Packaged in a no-nonsense clear tube, Good Things Argan Oil Nourishing Cleansing Oil is a great cleansing option if, like me, your skin tends to err on the dry side. After removing the bulk of my makeup with a foaming cleanser, I love to make sure every scrap is done with Good Things’ offering. To use it, I squeeze a little of the oil into damp palms, and massage it into my skin. The oil feels lovely and rich to apply, and when it comes into contact with water, it emulsifies into a milky solution. I massage it into my skin, making sure to pay attention to my eyes. Even though I’ve just used a foaming cleanser, Good Things’ cleansing oil really gets to work removing any impurities which have been left behind. I find it incredibly effective for gently removing eye makeup too!
Good Things Argan Oil Nourishing Cleansing Oil has the most glorious lemony-ginger scent, so it feels incredibly refreshing to use, and it leaves my skin feeling lovely and nourished. To remove the oil, I like to use a hot, damp face-cloth, and I lay it over my face for a few seconds to allow for a little steaming action. I then make sure to wipe off every scrap. My skin feels super soft after using the oil and looks healthy and clear.
Good Things Argan Oil Nourishing Cleansing Oil is priced at £5.99 and is available here.
