Garnier Micellar Water


So Micellar Water has been doing the rounds on blogs for a few years now. A while back it was the big hype in skincare and everyone was using it. For some reason, I didn't really jump on the hype. I bought one or two and used them, but I didn't understand why everyone was going crazy for them. It calmed down, we all got on with our lives and micellar water became another blogger trend that quietly blended into the background and I didn't think about it again.

Then I was perusing Boots a few weeks ago and saw this for £0.99! Now I like a good bargain, and 99p for a cleanser is fantastic. So obviously I picked it up. 

I've never trusted most makeup removers with my eye make-up, choosing instead to use remover specially formulated for eyes, but since this said it could, I decided to give it a go. And I was pleasantly surprised! I expected it to sting or only remove my makeup partially, but it removed all my makeup - mascara and all - with minimal rubbing and no stinging!

I have oily, sensitive skin and this hasn't aggravated it at all, thankfully! I've used it every day for a few weeks and no adverse reactions so far! 

I'll definitely be repurchasing this when it runs out, considering it's a small bottle, that'll be quite soon!

Have you tried this? What did you think?

Great British Coffee Week: Are you more hipster or yoga bunny?

HOF Coffee Stats_OUTREACH-v3

So, which category do you fall into? I am a big coffee lover, but according to this survey, I'm classed in the 'Gossip' category, however, I'd like to think I'm not a gossip! my drink of choice is a hazelnut latte, I like the nutty, Christmassy taste. Either that, or a chai latte with 2 shots of espresso. If you haven't tried it, you must. 

I'm trying to get away from instant coffee and make my own a bit more, I bought a cafetiere last year and I've been using it more recently, but that being said I want to get a new, fancier cafetiere. I've been perusing House of Fraser's range, and now I want a Nespresso machine! I'm tempted by this Magimix machine, I love the idea of having the milk frother, which I've not seen on many of the machines I've been looking at! 

Let me know what you think if you have a one of these new fandangled Nespresso machines!
And tell me, what's your favourite coffee order?
