Boots No7 Cleansing Brush

On Sunday I called into Boots to pick up a couple of body sprays, I came out with this selection:

Yes - that's right I couldn't resist picking up the new No7 cleansing brush! Its currently on offer at £15 and is included in the No7 three for two offer as well. The offer isn't on long (I couldn't find out when it ends) but it will then revert to the normal price of £24.95.

I also picked up the No7 Beautiful Skin Melting Gel cleanser (for normal/dry skin) and the No7 Beautiful Skin Night Cream (dry/very dry skin). I've not used No7 for a long time so I'm interested to see if these products will encourage me to buy more of their items in the future.

I've also never used a cleansing brush, I've seen reviews of the clarisonic but the hefty price tag has always put me off. Maybe if the Boots cleansing brush is half decent I'll want to move onwards and upwards!

Oh and I did pick up my body sprays as well...


Notice there's a Yardley one in there, I was so taken by the one included in my You Beauty Advent Calendar I've made a repurchase!

Finally if anyone is in Home Bargains looking a bargain (!) at the moment the Kleenex facial wipe range are in there for 69p each...


I stocked up on a few as you can see! I thought these were being phased out (see my post here) and I was correct. Luckily I've now got quite the collection so they should keep me going for the next year and beyond!

Have you tried the No7 cleansing brush? Will you be stocking up on facial wipes from Home Bargains??

Life without make up...

I thought I'd draw attention to a blog post I particularly enjoyed reading this morning. In it Rosie from A Rosie Outlook talks about going without make up and how her skin was better before she started wearing it. She also discusses how it has become such a big part of her life (link here).

Judging by the comments its obviously an issue close to lots of people's hearts and I also commented. I've put my comment below so you can see my thoughts on the subject but do have a look at the post and see what you think.

"This is a great post and looking at all the comments its obviously something that a lot of people also have issues with or thoughts about. I've been wearing make up since I was in my early teens, and am now 31 so can't really remember life without it!

I wear make up everyday and occasionally when I don't, I get asked if I'm not feeling well or a bit run down.

I'm happy to carry on wearing make up as I enjoy the 10 mins I spend putting it on, its not a chore like say, the 10 minutes brushing my teeth at night is!!

However there is a lot to be said for not getting into the habit of wearing make up, I know lots of older ladies who I work with that have never wore make up and look fantastic without it and have aged better than those who have. I guess its just what makes you comfortable.

If I didn't enjoy make up and putting it on I'd definitely stop wearing it and people would just have to get used to me looking unwell! It would also give me at least 20 minutes a day extra in bed!

Maybe that's the real reason people who don't wear make up age and look better, they just get extra sleep!!"
