Mini Reviews

Hey, so i thought it was about time i started to review products a little more as after all this is suppose to be a "beauty blog" yet i don't seem to review things that often? Anyway i just have a few things to review for now as with christmas coming up im trying to slow down spending unless its on things that are necessary.

First up is the Nivea Express Hydration Primer
Nivea Express Hydration Primer - £3.99 
Firstly i like how Nivea have created one for Normal-combination skin and one for Dry-Sensitive Skin. I did however find it a struggle choosing between them as i have combination yet sensitive skin. In the end i opted for the Normal-combination version. The consistency of the product in my opinion is perfect, a weightless gel like formula that sits comfortably on the skin feeling weightless and refreshing. With it being both a primer and moisturizer its two steps in one making it the perfect product for those early mornings where moisturizing then priming is just a chore! I don't however think it helps in making make-up last any longer but it does allow it to sit better and look smoother when first applied.

Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser - 
Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleanser - £5.99
I cheaper version of the Liz Earle cleanse and polish, but not in a bad way as i think this actually works just as well. At £5.99 you get a 100ml  tube of cleanser and 1 muslin cloth. I used t use Liz Earle all the time when i was younger but at £15 i think it can be a little pricey so to find something that works as well but for a fraction of the price is great! Consistency wise its not as thick as the Liz Earle one however i think thats better in some ways as a little goes along way. I also think this would be great for all skin types (apart from the extremely dry ones) as it helps to remove makeup, deeply cleanse the skin, exfoliate. It also states that is for sensitive skin, so like cleanse&polish it isn't irritating and won't dry the skin out.

MUA Eyebrow Kit -

MUA eyebrow kit - £3.50
Two shades which can be mixed,one highlight colour and a wax.
Ive always been a fan of MUA products as i think there surprisingly good quality to say they cost very little, so when i heard about the new Eyebrow Kit i new i had to try it. I first started using eyebrow powders i few years back so since then ive tried a fair few. My favourite so far has been either the HD brows palette or the much loved Sleek Eyebrow Palette. However i do really like this one, my only issues are that it says it contains a highlight colour, im guessing its the colour next to the wax? which in my opinion isn't a very good highlight colour especially if you have yellow under tones. Secondly the packaging isn't very secure as the lid comes open easily so its really something you would be able to just chuck into your bag. Apart from that i think like all MUA products its great quality to say it retails for only £3.50 and at that price you can't complain to much. 

Thanks for reading!
