Review: Liz Earle

Hi everyone, hope your all well.
Today I have a Liz Earle review. About a month ago I purchased two products for my mum. She suffers from psoriasis and I really wanted to get her something to feel good about again.
Psoriasis is a skin disease which leaves you with red, itchy and patchy skin. Psoriasis can't be cured, but it can be helped. There are many ointments and products out there to soothe the itching etc.
I did a bit of research and I found out that Liz Earle do some products for psoriasis. You can see more Liz Earle psoriasis products on their website Liz Earle and psoriasis.
Here's the two products I purchased:

Liz Earle orange flower botanical body wash
200ml £11.25

This product has a strong citrus smell. Once applied it foams up really quickly. A little really
does go a long way with this product. 
I gave my mum one month to test it out and after I asked her about it, this is what she said:

She believes this product really does make her skin feel much better.
The redness around the patches start to fade. Her skin feels much more smoother.
She has noticed a huge difference with her skin. The smell also gives her a therapeutic feel and boosts her energy.
She recommends this product to all the psoriasis sufferers. Although this product is good. 
This product will have a better effect on people with a little bit of psoriasis. 

Liz Earle
 Nourishing Botanical Body Cream.

200ml £16.25

I also purchased this product, so she could apply it after her shower. 
The smell is the same as the body wash. Very citrus-y and also a tinge of ginger.
My mum applies this product after using the body wash.
My mum's views on this product:

Both products work together to make her skin feel smooth. 
Soothes her skin and reduces the patchiness.
These are products that she is willing to purchase again and again!
So happy I bought these for her. 

I hope you guys found this post useful.

What I've been up to - #1

Hey Dolls
This weekend has been a very lazy weekend considering I have a bijillion essays to be doing...
But I just needed a break from everything and just needed a good old lazy weekend. 
I will be doing a summary of my week from time to time. Just to let you guys know what I've been up

♥ Recently I've been loving burning candles and reading books. Burning candles is slowly becoming an obsession of mine. It makes my room feel so cozy in this horrid cold weather. 

   ♥ I have also been tweet, tweeting a lot recently. The main reason is because I have finally downloaded uber social on my phone. And it's just so fast and it's really easy to quickly tweet something. If you aren't following me on twitter make sure you do because that's the easiest way to catch me and ask me any questions or leave any post requests :D

♥ I have also been completely obsessed with my IPOD. Especially this week because I have no exams. 
I have a lot of spare time now.
One of the great apps I have downloaded is Ibooks and this is such a convenient app. I love reading so much
but I never do enough of it. Until I downloaded this wonderful app. I have so many books to read. Yes I am 
reading the Pretty Little Liars series. I'm on book number three and it is so good.

♥ Another app I have been playing like mad since Thursday is the infamous Tiny Tower. I'm sure
everyone knows about this little beauty. It's not the usual genre of game I'd go for
But it's super addictive :l
I have also been addicted to Temple run. But lets not get into that :p

   ♥ Rihanna's Talk that talk album has been on replay all week. Such an upbeat album to dance around 
in your room to hahah.

♥ Finally 149 FOLLOWERS! 
Say whaaaat?!
Thank you all so very much, it means the world to me. Hello to all of you beauties. Thanks for taking
a peek at my blog, hope you enjoy :D

Hope you guys enjoyed the post.

Collective Haul: 2011 Sales

Hey Dolls! 
Hope everyone is doing amazing! How has the New Year been for you so far?
This is my long over due sales haul. I've been meaning to put it up for some time now. But due to exams and college deadlines I had to postpone it.
But better late then never...

Firstly over the Christmas period and sales. I went all perfume obsessed!
My perfume collection isn't really that big, but lately I've been loving all fragrances.
I picked up these little beauties from Superdrugs.

I love this perfume. The way it looks so classy with the lace detailing.
I don't really know how to describe smell... sorry
It also came with a little 50ml lotion and a big bow clutch.

This perfume seems very fruity. And it's kind of a mature, evening smell. 
It came with that 150 ml lotion.

And finally this little beauty.
I haven't really heard much about this perfume. But it's very nice and smells kind of like the Christina Aguilera perfume. And it came with the huge 200 ml lotion.

Then from superdrugs I also purchased 

This colourworks pallete.
There's a really funny story behind this. When I bought this pallete I thought it was the 
MUA pallete. However when I came home I realized it was the colourworks one. 
Anyhoo it works just as good. The colours are pretty pigmented. 
If you guys want like swatches and a full review just let me know.

Lastly I purchased this little beauty.
Superdrugs had a collection of studio boxes. I wanted to purchase the golden bronze box, but there
was only one left and it was all messed up :(
So I went for the pretty natural pallete. 
Full review and swatches coming soon :D

And then from Primark I didn't really purchase much *SHOCKER*
But there wasn't really that many things that caught my eye. So I only picked up these...

I don't know what you'd call these. But I like to call them arm warmers.
First when I saw them I didn't really see the point in these. But they looked so cute and for £2.00 you can't really go wrong. 

And then I purchased this leopard print, over sized scarf. Which I am in love with!!

Lastly from Dorothy Perkins I purchased these two goodies..

I needed a new college bag. This one is perfect. It's spacious and the front pockets makes it so much easier
to quickly grab things like, lip balms or lunch money.

It's got a longer strap and a shorter one. 

And finally I caved in and purchased these little cutesy loafers. Their so cute :D

I hope you guys enjoyed this haul. 
And I'd love to have links to your hauls.

Thanks for reading.

ELF: Daily Brush Cleaner

Hey Dolls
Hope everyone is doing fine.
Today I have thoughts on the ELF daily brush cleanser. 

ELF Daily Brush Cleaner.

When I first purchased this product a couple of months ago I steered clear of it.
This is all down to the smell of the product. 
My face is pretty sensitive, so I usually divert away from products that contain fragrances on them.

However a couple of days ago I had a sudden urge to use this brush cleanser.
And I must say I am impressed.
This bottle of brush cleanser does have some smell to it. But it works absoloutley amazing. 

I used it to clean my eye brushes, the brushes had black shadows on them and 
the cleanser made it so easy to clean them.
My brushes were left clean and like new after I'd washed them. 

I love how it's a spritz bottle. It controls how much product I use. Usually two sprays does the trick.
For face brushes I'd use about two and half (as in for foundations...)

For only £2.45 I think this bottle is well worth it. Especially because you get a huge 250ml.
And a little does go a long way with this cleaner.

However I wouldn't recommend it if your looking for a brush cleaner to do heavy duty removal.
This cleaner is good for every day use hence the name.
It did not effect my skin after I used it :D.

I hope you found this post useful.
