L’OREAL Skin Perfection Purifying Gel Wash



As always, I was looking for a new face wash. I did want to repurchase the Garnier one that I had been using but couldn’t find it and this. Toggle caught my eye. Since. I love the skin perfecting miracle cleansing oil, I thought I’d give this one a go.

It’s a purifying gel wash for combination to oily skin. It says it Removes impurities, helps unblock pores and reveals fresh clean skin

I use this wash both morning and night and it does feel really nice on the skin. It lather up so easily and you only need a small bit as a little goes a long way. It gives your skin a deep cleanse, without being too harsh.

It has helped to clear up my skin, but at the moment I’m having a really bad breakout which is upsetting. It has really helped control the oils on my face too, which I find is necessary with facial products.

It does leave your skin feeling fresh and clean and works really well for it’s price!

Garnier Fresh Clarifying Wash – Shine Be Gone




I’ve been using a new Facewash the past week or so and I can already say that I love it. It’s the Garnier Fresh Clarifying Wash – Shine Be Gone and it’s for oily to combination skin. There’s a chemist in my local town which always has great, affordable prices and most of the Garnier range they stock is all €2.79 which is amazing!

I have oily skin which has been breaking out pretty badly the last week or so and this wash has really helped keep all my pesky oil in check. It says it “refreshes and purifies pores” and has green tea and moringa extract within. Now usually, all the jibber jabber about ingrediants confuses me, I just want my face to be clean! Green tea is an amazing antioxidant for your skin and since I can’t stand the taste of it, I’m happy it’s in this face wash. From what I’ve read about moringa it moisturises, is good for blemish removal and prevents wrinkles. So these two ingrediants mixed together are great for your skin. I know my skin laps it up. It’s also gentle enough for sensitive skin which is amazing because you can have both sensitive and oily skin and I haven’t seen enough washes to combat those two problems.

As you can see from my third picture, it’s a clear gel consistency and is not too runny or too thick. I like my washes to be that in between consistency where it doesn’t run straight off your face, but doesn’t take forever to lather up either. This wash is great for clearing your skin, getting a really deep down clean everyday without being too harsh, tightening pores, controlling oil and everything you would want your wash to have.

Getting down to the sudsy stuff, you use it just like any other wash. You wet your face and then rub this on in circular motions. It foams up amazingly and feels so soft to rub it on your face. It has a nice, light scent which isn’t overbearing and doesn’t linger on your skin either. You can focus this more on your t-zone area; so your forehead, nose and chin areas. This is where I know my face gets most oily so it’s great to really work it into those areas. It says you could follow up with a moisturiser but I follow up with my other regular skin care items.

I really couldn’t recommend this wash enough. It’s so affordable and works so well!

Feeling Clean…

I’ve been using a new face wash, which is Neutrogena’s Visibly Clean Pore & Shine Daily Wash and I love it. I’ve been using it in the morning as I prefer something more mattifying and oil controlling for throughout the day. And let me tell you I’m impressed!


So to use I just wet my face and lather two pumps of the wash in my hands. It has a jelly like consistency so I find it easier to lather it up that way. Then I just go at my face using circular motions. It feels really nice to use and it doesn’t dry out your skin at all, even though it’s removing a lot of the excess oil.


You can really see a difference from day one. My shine was under control until around 4 or 5, which is amazing since I wash my face at 6am! On the bottle it says it removes up to 77% of the extra sebum on your face and it really does!
My pores have been visibly reduced too and this works amazing with Simple ‘s Pore Minimising Cleanser to reduce the look of my pores further! It also cleans really deep down so you can even feel this working.
My skin has been noticeably clearer the past week since starting yo use this product. It has a really fresh scent of tangerines and limes which is so refreshing for waking you, and your skin up in the morning..


I like the packaging, the pump doesn’t give out too much, which I’m glad about because you don’t end up wasting a lot of the product that way.

Well as you can see I love this, but have you ever tried it? Or do you have a different preference?

Soap & Glory: Peaches & Clean*

DSCN0481 DSCN0482 DSCN0483


I’ve been using this daily since Christmas and I thought it was about time to do a review on it. So, as you can tell from the title it’s the Peaches & Clean 3 in 1 Wash Off Deep Purifying Cleanser. It’s half empty, because  was using it both morning and evening for a few weeks. Then I went to just using it at night because I like a cleanser that keeps my oily shine more in check throughout the day.

I got this in my Yule Monty gift set, although if you were to go to the shop to buy it, it’s only 9.50 EURO which is really reasonable. The cleanser claims to have super t-zone decloggers, go juice, oxyginising technology, boosts circulation and to re-energise the skin.  All that is a bit of a mumble jumble to me and I just decided to go ahead and try it.

I really do like it. My skin has been a bit better, but it doesn’t really declog my pores as well as I might have wanted but it does the job. I don’t use it straight on my face at the end of the day I always remove my make up before washing my face, so I can really get a deep clean. This cleanser leaves you feeling so refreshed after using it. Your skin does feel really clean which is what you would like in a face wash. My skin has been a bit brighter and less dull so it must be helping a bit!As with many Soap & Glory products this smells freaking amazing. It smells peachy, most definitely!

Soap & Glory are also quite a forgiving bunch as, in the directions they say go ahead and use both morning and night, or the morning after if you’ve done the nasty thing and slept with your make up on. It makes making mistakes a lot easier, not that I do very often.

It doesn’t particularly help with clogged pores, blackheads, spots,redness, to me. I’m used to using face cleaners with a more targeted approach to my skin.  If you’re looking for a good, all round cleanser and have quite good skin, this is for you!
