Garnier Pure Active Exfo Brusher review

Thought i'd do a quick review on the Garnier Pure Active Exfo brusher.
I bought this a week ago from Tescos for about £7.49, which i think is quite pricey for a face wash.

I have been using this every day, twice a day, and i haven't really seen much reduction in the marks, however i have noticed that my skin is definately a lot clearer and as the brush is like an exfoliater, my skin hasn't been as dry.

I like the scrubby brush thing because it feels like it really gives a good deep clean without being too harsh. You definately don't get that face-stretched-shiny-over-bones feeling, just a really nice, clean, soft feeling.
However, a big minus side for me on this product is that the brush is attatched to the bottle. You have to twist the top 180 degrees in order to 'open' the bottle and then tip it up to deliver the face wash onto the scrub.
But the wash is really quite runny and you end up squeezing it on the floor, then angling it only slightly so it runs onto the brush - basically it's quite fiddly and runny.
I then tried tipping my head back and squeezing it onto my face and scrubbing it in quickly, but like i said, it's so runny it tends to seep into your eyes and mouth - maybe this is just me, but i have found this quite annoying and for £7.50, you would expect the design to be a bit more user friendly.
All in all, i don't think i would re-purchase, due to two things
1) the awkward application
2) the money

But all in all, it's a great face wash, and i will definately be keeping up with it til the bottle is gone!

Until next time

A night out

I really hardly ever go out, but last night i popped out for a couple of hours to see my brothers band play. This is what i wore
My black skull dress from New Look (£10.00, reduced from £25.00 - bargain!)
Black tights
Silver skull ring £1.99 from Oxfam
New platform black ankle boots with buckles £0.99 Ebay!!
I am posing outside my house (that's my bedroom window lit up in the background!) This is me posing in my (messy) hallway. I have my extensions in too.
The nail polish i have on is Rimmel Celebrity Bash
On my eyes i have used a selection of colours from my 88 warm palette.
I have used Conceal It stick from Benefit and Max Factor Second Skin foundation
The bronzer is Rimmel, but i've had it so long all the writing has rubbed off
Mascara is Maybelline Great Lash
Maybelline liquid eyeliner
Rimmel black eyeliner
On my lips is used Rimmel East End Snob - which i absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! the only thing is, it's quite soft and is one of those wind up pencils so i don't think it will last long. It's a beautiful dusky pink colour. I sometimes top it with MAC Hue, but i find when you put lipstick on top of lipliner it doesn't stay on as long, so i just used the Rimmel and that stuff stayed on all night!!!

My brother was, as always, fantastic!!
So that's all folks!
Until next time xoxo

Shoe Lust!!

Oh i am sooooo in LOVE!!! these are the Kara wedges from Carvela and are £120.
They have them in white and orange too (orange? no thanks). I would find it hard to choose between this lovely nude colour or the white, but would probably go with the nude.
I love them so much...the best wedges are always super expensive :-(
I shall have to start saving.....
