Haul: Toiletries

I have been a very naughty girl the past couple of months, being stuck in my room at uni (probably getting bored hearing me talk about this), pretty much most weekends saw me popping into town or the Trafford Centre and splashing the cash. I say this as thought I have spent a fortune, but I only spent a little bit each time I got paid from work.

However, this haul includes things which I actually needed. I don't always enjoy going out to buy toiletries, I find it a little bit boring and always want to go for the top notch products that I cannot afford. This time around I wanted to try and get some new face care products, as I want to look after my skin more than what I do.

I have seen a lot of bloggers raving over this Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water and they have said it is a good dupe for the ... I have to say I cannot justify this or back it up as I have not tried the ... before. To be perfectly honest, I did not believe that the micellar cleansing waters would work at all, how is it any different than just using water? Well... after giving it a try, I realised how very different this is from ordinary water, and I felt a little bit bad for not trusting what everyone had to say about it. It has a silky consistency to it and glides across the face lovely, taking away pretty much all of your make up off. It is also fantastic at removing eye make up which is perfect so that it does two jobs in one, and less products you have to buy. To use this product I use a couple of round cotton pads and pour the cleansing water onto it.

If I am going to start my skincare routine then I have to do it properly so I also picked up the Garnier Refreshing Toner. I have only used this product a couple of times so it is difficult to say how much it works, but my skin did feel refreshed once I had used it. I honestly don't think that my face has ever felt as refreshed before than what it did after using both of these products. 

Every once in a while a face mask is a must to replenish your skin, your skin goes through a lot every day so it is important to treat it to a little more TLC in your night time routine. There are different masks out there for every skin type, my skin is quite oily so I find that clay masks are much better for me as it doesn't add any extra unwanted oils. This Botanics Ionic Clay Mask cleanses my skin beautifully, my pores don't feel big anymore and that all the bad impurities have been removed. Depending on how badly damaged you feel your face is, then I would recommend doing a face mask every week, if not give it a try every other week.

Every time I go buy a shower gel, I like to mix it up a little bit and try something new, which is not like me at all. I am also not one for very zesty, strong smelling toiletries as I have quite delicate skin so I feel I wont get on with it well. However, when I saw this Original Source shower gel I thought it looked lovely and refreshing. Tea tree is quite a soothing ingredient so I thought that this would make me feel a little De-stressed, and the Lemon makes it very refreshing and makes it feel like Summer in a bottle. I love it! 

 Yes, this happened, I went to Lush. Every time I go to town I always go into Lush and have a nosey at what they have, unfortunately the store in the town near me is quite small so they don't have a lot of products, especially all the new ones for some reason. After reading quite a few blogs and saw the Easter inspired products I knew that I had to get my hands on some of them. The only product that I got was the bunch of carrots, they are just so cute and make me feel a little hungry. I really do think they are great value for money, being a reusable bubble bath it means that you can get the fresh orange smell a lot more than once. I have only had one bath since buying them, but I hardly used any of the carrot and there were a lot of bubbles which was lovely. The only downside was it made your water look very yellow/brown/orange which made it look quite grubby. 

Have you tried any of these products before? I'd love to hear what you have to say about them.
