I was recently introduced to micellar water and at first I was impressed with all the good things, other beauty blogs had to say about it but then I big question developed in my head. Is this simple looking water that amazing?
I had to answer that question myself, so I went on the search for a bottle of this popular stuff. I do have to say I was a bit eager to purchase the first option I had in mind as it was a bit overpriced in my opinion... after wandering around the skin care section, I found this one by L´Óreal and I am happy with it, although, I have given it an alternative use.
Instead of its main purpose, which is to dissolve make up on an easy, simple and delicate way, I use it as a toner every morning. I love how delicate it is to tone my skin and unclog my pores, and also works great giving my face a fresh start before applying moisturiser, primer and all that. It soothes my skin and if I woke up with an annoying pimple, it will almost get rid of it.
On the other hand, I am not a big fan of using as a make up remover. Maybe I am too inpatient, or I am more likely used to make up wipes and cleansers. I had a dilemma on whether I should love it and praise it or ignore it and pass it on to someone else but I love it as a toner and it works great on me that way.
I would love to know if any of you find it helpful on removing make up and also, have you been on a similar situation where you end up giving a different purpose to a product? Let me know on a comment!
As the days get darker and mornings become grey (how dramatic did I sound!) I am now trying everything as possible to bring up some colour to my routine. As much as I love monochrome, I am starting to realise that, if I don´t want to feel a little under the weather this season, I have to bring a little boost of pastels and even 60´s inspired florals into my wardrobe.
I really love the result when you add a hint of contrast, to a very simple outfit and whenever I spotted this fluffy beanie I knew it had to be mine. Oh, and wait to hear where I got it!... I was doing some grocery shopping in Tesco when somehow I walked through the clothes section. Little I knew they had the cutest beanies and gloves this year! They all seem to have good quality and they are less than £10.
I have to say, I am so tempted to visit that section again and get more beanies!
