Put down all of your tools. They will no longer be needed. I finally caved when I was away in Paris recently, headed to a pharmacy and got my hands on a large 500ml bottle of the Micellaire water that everyone raves about in droves. It always looked too watery and plain for me, so I always dismissed it as a bit of a fad, that actually wouldn't be anywhere near as fantastic as my Body Shop Cleansers,Liz Earle Hot Cloth or Clarins Instant Remover. Yet, my intrigue caught the better of me and I went away with a big bottle of the cult fave without real hesitation.
But when I say put down your tools, Im not just been dramatic. I just haven't used anything else since I bought this. Decanting some onto a cotton pad, it sweeps onto the face like water. Clean, clear and refreshing. It sweeps over makeup so easily, taking away all foundations, powders and base makeup without any real pressure and seeing a fully beige cotton pad later always makes me feel somewhat satisfied with my makeup removal. It also makes short work of eye makeup, sweeping away even the likes of waterproof mascara and eyeliner until your face and eyes are entirely back to normal. I have found some water based eye make removers to always leave a dark residue around the eyes, but Bioderma really doesn't allow for left overs. Super sensitive on the eyes, doesnt sting, doesnt have a scent, does exactly what you need it to and also the size of the bottle means I will probably have this for around 4 months. Yes I am now converted to the French Skincare favourite and no I will not be looking back.
I know my mum would greatly appreciate this post, so maybe some other ladies will also. Sometimes the likes of Topshop and Urban Outfitters just dont cut it for the more mature lady, so its always nice to pull out some awesome finds from the stores they are more likely to visit. But not only for the mature ladies out there, there are some stores that perhaps aren't on everyones radar and perhaps are worth a look. Thats what I found when I took to browsing the George at Asda range. Now and again when I'm back in my hometown, me and my mum head to Asda for the Sunday Roast and we take a peruse around the clothing. Every time I do, I am always surprised by one or two treats that I just didn't expect, and it just shows you that there are stores out there doing better and better every season. So I thought I'd collect together a few lovely bits from the George range to show you my point. Lovely pastels, mixed with a bit of lace and animal print. I adore this oversized knit and it would look amazing in spring slouched over a pair of short denim shorts. If it's jumpers and cardigans you're after, then theres quite a mixed selection. The little ballet shoes are adorable and again would look amazing with shorts or cropped cigarette trousers, whilst the animal print shorts could be dressed up or down. And a little peachy pink coat, well you cant really go wrong.
So I guess next time you're out and about, or even doing your shopping online, its definitely worth a quick browse in the collection. You might be greatly surprised.
