Trial and tell #001

This is a little series I came up with at precisely 2am. Sometimes inspiration just has to disturb your sleep. But I have now made this figment of my imagination a little spectacle, so enjoy.

This is basically how it is gonna work. I test out a few things and then tell you my thoughts on them. And then in the comments if you have tried any of these out, tell me your thoughts below or any recommendations.

Simple micellar cleansing water – once one micellar water runs out, you really have to get another one. On a bit of a tight budget, I found this one on offer in Superdrug and I really do like it. It’s soft (if water can even be soft) and gentle on the skin and does the job pretty darn well. I owe you an apology Garnier micellar water but I will resume using you shortly
Skin therapy eye makeup remover – a wilko own brand product that I was eager to try as the Nivea double effects eye makeup remover was not on offer. I wasn’t expecting a lot as it was only 75p but for such a bargain, it does a hella good job. It’s not as good as the Nivea one from what I can remember, but it removes my eye makeup. A label that speaks the truth
P.S anti frizz serum – I felt like a magpie when I saw Primark had a haircare range to. Boy was I out of the loop about Primark new releases. I thought this would be a cheaper alternative to a Moroccan/argan oil type thing or at least along the same lines. Yeah, I was wrong. This just wasn’t for my hair or its texture. Not a winner for me. It left my hair feeling just loaded with product

Rimmel stay matte primer – not too long ago, I did a whole post about primers but none of them seem to work for me. And I can’t even say this one works 100% but 98% is as close as its going to get, ever, I think. It has its ups and downs with me and I may soon give up on primers. I won’t spoil it too much for you as there will be a post coming but let’s just say it is the weirdest things that we grow to love

Skin therapy eye gel – another wilko product I came home with. I wasn’t expecting anything amazing again because it was like 75p and I have never really found an amazing eye gel but this has been nice in the mornings on my puffy eyes
Argan oil night repair serum – the packaging of this bears a resemblance to the Estee Lauder night repair serum and well, when its only 99p, you really have to give it a try. I am big fan of their hair products but this serum really didn’t do much for me. I think it is just a little too greasy for the night time personally and it kind of just stayed on the surface of my skin. My face isn’t a product playground thanks

And that is all of this post. I had fun writing it and I will be sure to make this a regularity on the blog if you fancy. I have written this in the back seat of a car and I think I should try and get 40 winks. Do any of you know that phrase?

Have a great week

p.s. Wilko have AMAZING things in there that are incredibly cheap. Go have a browse

Ooh but guess what, I believe I have just uploaded a new YouTube video. You can check it out here if you would like to
