Premier Model Skin Cleanser Review

Hello! Thought I would do a quick review on a new cleanser I've been using recently and cannot get enough of, it actually is amazing! If you follow my blog regularly you will know that I am obsessed with Superdrugs' Vitamin E skincare range, especially their Hot Cloth Cleanser. Well scrap that because this has now taken over my life and I am in loveeeee! I came across this in TK Maxx for only £4.99, which I thought was amazing considoring it retails at £20.95. Since I have pretty bad blemish and acne prone skin, I'm often dead weary about what products I use but this has made such an improvement in just under one months useage that I if I can't find it again in TK Maxx I will quite happily spend the full amount to get it again! 

'A luxurious cream that gently and effectively cleanses the skin, Premier Model Skin Cleanser And Eye Makeup Remover thoroughly removes make-up without damaging the skin’s protective barrier.
Formulated with evening primrose and rosehip oils, rich in omega-3 and 6 essential fatty acids and using shea butter, Premier Model Skin Cleanser And Eye Makeup Remover prevents skin dryness and maintains elasticity whilst soothing and softening.Also relying on vitamin A, renowned for its anti-ageing benefits to encourage smooth, soft skin, vitamin B5 to help promote moisture balance, and vitamin E for its powerful antioxidant action, this incredibly powerful cleanser will ensure your skin is clean, soft, rejuvenated and renewed.'

I've already seen such an improvement in my skins appearence in such little time it seems unreal! I've been using it both morning and night, and you only need a 20 pence size amount of product to remove all make up completly, including waterproof mascara. The texture itself  is creamy, thich and rich which leaves skin feeling beautifully clean and soft once removed with a damp cloth or cotton pad. When it came to using makeup I would usually have to slap on two or three layers of foundation (disgusting I know!) before I would even leave the house due to being so self concious about my skin, but since using this product I've been able to use just one application of Garnier's BB cream which is so far from what I used to be like when it came to trying to hide my blemishes! I've also found that parts of my face where I'm conscious about lines beginning to appear as I'm going on 24 have also reduced, or at least it looks as though they have which makes me more than happy.

I honeslty can't explain how much I love this cleanser and can't wait to try more products from their range, and if you haven't tried it and suffer from bad skin I really recommend giving this a go.

All about Bodycon

Images taken from Google and
I am currently obsessed with all things bodycon at the moment, and the sooner I get this weight off the sooner I can splurge on several pieces! I have a typcial hour glass figure, small waist big boobs and a big booty so these type of dresses are suited for my shape, however I just need to find the confidence to wear them and I know loosing weight will help with this. Right now, Miss Selfridge have some gorgeous bodycon dresses both instore and online, I've chosen one of my favourites along with a handful of my favourite accessories, and of course I've selected pieces to create one outfit I would wear for hitting town on a night out with the girls!

1. Nude & Black Bodycon Dress £39.00
2. Leather Skull Clutch £40.00
3. Serenity Black Jewel Heel £60.00
4. Gold Scorpian Ring (4 pack) £12.50
5. Black Dip Dye Chain Drop Earrings £12.50

Its been a while!

It might be more than a bit late but Happy New Year everyone! I haven't made a post in weeks now.. boooo! IHowever I'm finally back and getting right into blogging all things fashion and beauty (along with general chit chat of course!) So before I upload my first post of 2012 I thought I would give you a quick update on what I've been doing and what I've got planned for the next few months.

001. I had been so busy working 9 hour days at work 6 times a week for almost all of Decemeber I was just too tired and had no motivation to do anything other than sleep when I had the time off. And as much as I love Christmas I've dreaded working it, nothing worse than feeling dead on your feet for months with very little time off! I've also been loaded with cold, seems it was just one thing after another.

002. I've rejoined Slimming World again after putting it off for so long. Over the last few months I have been eating like a pig and it comes as no surprise that I had put on weight! And as soon as my only pair of jeans were getting too tight to zip up I knew I had to do something. I've done the plan in the past and lost just over a stone, however put it back on after breaking up from a long term relationship. I could say it was comfort eating but it was more out of being lazy and throwing anything quick and frozenin the oven as well as eating late at night. I've been back on plan for 2 weeks now and I've already lost 5lb! I've also been running 3 miles 6 times a week as well as resistance training so I can tone up my wobbly bits (pretty much everywhere!) Its going to be a long process as I want to lost between 2 and 3 stone but I know the end results will be worth it, and I'll be doing weekly updates with my progress on here too.

003. I'm finally back into learning to drive again. I've had my theory over a year now so I must pass within the next 12 months of I'm going to have to redo it again! I can drive I'm just awful at doing anything that involves a 3 point turn (turn in the road whatever blahblah!) or paralel parking, sooner I get my head round it I will put in for my test. Hoping to pass before my birthday in March so I can get saving and treat myself to a car!

004. I'm thinking of doing a blog sale. I have 6 bin bags of clothes, shoes and bags to get rid of as well as a large amount of nail varnish and make up! I usually put items on ebay but thought other bloggers who are interested in fashion and beauty may want to have a look and if there is anything you like just send me an email or message me direct on twitter. What do you think?

I have a new blog post coming later tonight but for now I will leave you with my update of why I haven't posted anything in so long. I hope you all have a fab weekend!
