Charismatic Cat Candles Clean Cotton

Firstly, I would like to say she is one of the nicest people I have ever dealt with. The whole experience was a pleasure to deal with. For me communication is key, the blogging world isn’t always the easiest. She let me know when she would be making a batch of candles and let me pick the scent I would like to receive. It was sent first class recorded and was with me within one day. 
I am a complete and utter candle lover, I have a very shameful collection that seems to grow with most trips into town or the supermarket.

 I’m a sucker for fresh smelling scents, which is a good thing because this pregnancy has been kind to me #morningsickness. The candle comes in a sleek silver tin with the logo it’s very appealing to the eye. I believe less is more. A few weeks ago, I was kindly sent a candle from Charismatic Cat Candles.  I decided on the scent “clean cotton”, something about the smell of clean clothes coming out of the washing machine makes me feel nice and warm inside. Yeah the simplest things in life satisfy me. As soon as the candle arrived, that’s what I was instantly reminded of. I could not wait to light it up, sit back, and enjoy the fresh smell that quickly took over our bedroom. 

This candle reminds me of the Yankee one but at a fraction of the price, it retails for an amazing £4.75. I’ve already told John (my husband) that we will buying one of these to pop into the babies room once we’ve got it all set up. 

I believe in helping out small businesses, who are just setting up. This is honestly one of the best scents I have owned. They are all homemade with plenty of different scents and colours to pick from.

Nouveau Lash & Lid Foaming Cleanser

As a #bblogger I love putting on my makeup in the morning, but nothing is more satisfying than removing it at the end of a long day! One thing I absolutely hate is being left with panda eyes, which pretty much happens daily when I use my Clinique Take The Day Off in the shower.
When the team at nouveau lashes emailed me about a brand new product they would be launching in May, I could not hide my excitement. I am a huge fan of everything nouveau lashes, everything I’ve tired I have absolutely loved.

“This gentle foaming cleanser is designed to encourage effective lash and eyelid hygiene by removing potential irritants, whilst thoroughly cleansing and conditioning the eye area. The hypoallergenic formulation is gentle on even the most sensitive eyes. Key anti-ageing ingredients also provide intense hydration and moisturisation to allow the skin to better defend itself against environmental aggressors and other ageing effects. Suitable for both lash extensions and natural lashes.”

I have found that the best way to use this is to pump one or two pumps into the back of your hand and dabbing the brush into the cleanser then onto your lashes in circular motion. Once you pump the gel formula, it quickly turns into a foam. For a limited time when you order the product it comes with a cute little purple brush (while stocks last, so make sure you head on over to nouveau lashes #now). 

I’ll be honest when I first heard about the brush it puzzled me how I was going to remove my makeup using a brush. I own hundreds of brushes to apply my makeup but never heard of one to remove! The first thing I noticed was how soft my eyelashes felt, there were no clumps of mascara or signs of any eyeshadow. My skin felt SO smooth. I hate having to rub my eyes to remove makeup; One because it makes me worry about my sensitive eyes and if they start stinging at any moment making me panic I’m going blind. Two because I rub so hard at times, my precious eyelashes fall out.

“Pro tip: This cleanser is the perfect way to clean your Strip lashes (allowing for re-use), your make-up brushes and it also removes traces of strip lash adhesive on the eyelids.”

Overall, I am so impressed with this new cleanser you can purchase it here. You can use it on your natural, LVL and SVS lashes. It retails at £14.99  which I think is very reasonably priced considering you get a brush too. Make sure you place your order while stock lasts.

Which cleanser do you use and recommend?
