Garnier – Soothing Vitamin Enriched Toner | Review


Garnier – Soothing Vitamin Enriched – Toner

Is Garnier Simply Essentials Soothing toner right for me?

Yes, if your skin feels fragile when cleansing. Yes, if changes in temperature, fatigue and stress leave your skin more sensitive. Yes, if you have sensitive skin.

How does it work?

Garnier Simply Essentials Soothing toner combines soothing water lily extract and Pro-vitamin B5 in a gentle formula which provides an intense fresh sensation on the skin.



I decided to pick this up and give it ago as the colder weather has made my skin so dry! I needed a product that would help moisturise and cleanse without drying my skin.

This was on offer for £2 in morrisons and because I got on so well with the Garnier Micellar Water, I decided to pick their toner up as well. I’ve been using this product for around 2 weeks now and I’ve really liked the product.
It’s very moistening which is great for the colder weather and it also cleanses your skin and gets rid of all the access oils and dirt without drying your skin out.
It’s easy to apply and sinks into your skin fast so you don’t have to wait around for it to dry.


I’m impressed with this product as it has helped my dry skin and has made my skin look more hydrated and healthy. From the first use I already felt my skin felt hydrated and cleaner, It is also gentle on the skin which is great if you have sensitive skin.
This toner also has a nice, fresh smell to it.

To use, all you need to do is apply the product to a cotton pad and gently wipe your skin in circular motions.

I think this toner is amazing and worth a try and it is also amazing value for the product and the size of the bottle.

You can find this Garnier Toner here.

Which is your favourite Garnier product?

Colouring Book Review| November 2015


For the past few months, Adult colouring books have become really popular.
One of the reasons they have become popular is because colouring is now ‘back in’. I think they shouldn’t name them ‘Adult Colouring Books’ Because colouring can be for anyone no matter what colouring book you use.

But for many it is because they help with stress so much!
You might think ‘How does a colouring book help with stress?’ but you will be very surprised.
But colouring in can also be a way to pass time or for something to do with someone like your children or a friend,

I find them a good way to help de stress. Because you’re putting all your attention on colouring and what colour you want to use. It helps get your mind off things that are making you stressed and it helps to have a nice break and to clear your mind. You can colour for 5 minutes, 1 hour or more.
Sometimes you just get lost while colouring.


I love my two colouring books as I am in my third year of University and things are starting to get very stressful.
So I like to take my books and colours and fill out a page when things are getting too much, this helps me get my mind off things and relax for a while. So when It comes to going back to do work, my mind isn’t so stressed or filled with thoughts.

If you get very stress or anxious I highly recommend one of these colouring books. They are such a good cheap and nice way to help de stress and unwind.

‘According to psychologist, colouring is the best alternative to meditation.
Colouring allows to unlock your creative potential. 

Perhaps more important, it helps relive tension and anxiety. It unlocks memories of childhood and simpler times.’

I got mine from Asda and Waterstones. You can get them from a lot of shops and they cost around £5-£20


The Time Garden – Daria Song

‘The Time Garden will sweep you away into an enchanted world, created in intricate pen and ink by Korean artist Daria Song. Journey through the doors of the cuckoo clock and into its inky innerworkings to discover a magical land ready and waiting for you to customize with whatever colours you can dream up. The Time Garden is an international best-selling colouring book and this edition finally makes it available in English. Full of beautifully detailed illustrations, this is the perfect gift for colouring fans of all ages.’

Get Ready With Me | Minimal Makeup, Hair Care & Skin Care

 Get Ready With MePicMonkey Collage3

Hello fellow bloggers & readers,
I thought I would do something a little different today. Instead of doing a post on skin care or makeup,
I decided I would make a little ‘Get Ready With Me’ video.

I’m going to go more into detail in this blog post.

I hope you liked this little video, I might start doing more blog posts like this with little videos to change things up a little.


Hair Care

If you want to know my full hair care routine I made a blog post and a video about it a few months ago.
My Hair Care Routine

My hair care routine is pretty basic, I don’t tend to change products that often.

Shampoo – LOreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil
This is hands down my favourite shampoo as it has helped my hair so much when it was bleached and badly damaged.
It doesn’t weigh my hair down or make it look greasy.
If you bleach your hair or have damaged hair I recommend this product.

Hair Oil – LOreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil
If you read my blog you will know how much I talk about this product. It never lets me down, this product also saved my over dyed, damaged hair at the beginning of the year. It is a little pricey but it lasts for ages! You only need one to two pumps of the oil and it spreads though the hair. It doesn’t leave your hair greasy or weighed down.

Spilt End Treatment – Umberto Giannini Mend My Hair

This product also saved my damaged hair and also helps reduce spilt ends. It’s a 5-1 hair oil which helps repair your hair. I only use this product at the ends of my hair as I use the LOreal product all over.

Hair Brush – Tangle Teezer 
This is a lot of money for a  hairbrush, but it actually does what it says it will.
It helps get all the knots and tangles out of my hair without it hurting. If you use a normal brush and then use this, you will notice a huge difference between the two!
I highly recombined this hair brush.
