As you can see, I've managed to get through quiet a lot of products but it has been over the course of a few months. That lip balm with the red lid and no label was a Carmex one - I seem to pull the labels off things when I'm coming to the end of them forgetting I want to take pictures of them for a blog post! I really like the Carmex lipbalms, especially in the twisty tubes like that one. Behind the Aussie conditioner is a Tresemme heat defense spray.. I need to organise my pictures better!

Tresemme shampoo - Ah! I am SO happy to be done with this shampoo. I don't think it's the greatest shampoo in the world and it's just far too big. I had trouble holding the bottle and I got bored of it half way through. 

Tresemme heat defense spray - I like this but I'm not sure whether it really does any good. I have another bottle on the go at the moment but once this one is gone I may look for a different one to try out. What are you favourites?

Natural Collection mascara in brown - I really liked this mascara considering it was under £2 but then I like natural looking lashes which is exactly what this gave me. If you like your lashes to look like you're wearing a lot of mascara then I don't think this is the one for you.

Babylips lipbalm in quenched - I've tried a few of the Babylips balms but this is my favourite. Since it's clear you don't need to worry about applying it without a mirror which for me, is something I don't want to worry about when applying a lip balm.

Collection concealer - While I like this concealer for covering blemishes I just find it breaks me out so although that tube in the picture isn't fully finished - I won't be using it anymore.

Soap and Glory smoulder kohl eyeliner pencil in black - I love this eyeliner! It  smooth and stays put all day. I could get some more use out of it but I lose the lid to it and it's now covered in other make up so I've decided to get rid of it.

Highstreet picks: Statement necklaces!

When it comes to necklaces I'm pretty fussy and being a small chested girl I find they don't always hang the way I want them too, which means I don't wear them all too often but that doesn't stop me admiring them from afar and lately I have been really liking big statement necklaces. You can't get very far on the highstreet at the moment without running into a few (or a fifty) - they are absolutely everywhere in every shape, colour and size you could imagine and are a perfect way to jazz up an otherwise plain outfit.

L-R: Accessorize £8 // New Look £6.99 // Accessorize £15 // Dorothy Perkins £12.50 // Topshop £25 // Accessorize £12 // New Look £5.99 // Love Rocks £40 // Dorothy Perkins £8.50 // New Look £7.99 // Topshop £16.50 // Topshop £7.50 // Dorothy Perkins £12.50 // New Look £6.99

Are you sporting any statement necklaces at the moment? I'd love to see your favourites!

Highstreet/Drugstore cleansers!

Hey guys! It's been a while - exams were keeping me busy but they're all done now and I can get back to blogging! Recently the cleanser I had been using for a while (the Garnier Pure Active one on the far right) was no longer available at Boots or Tesco, so I assumed they had discontinued it (don't you hate that?!) and decided I needed to branch out and find something new. Since then I've realised they still sell it in Asda, so I'm not sure what's going on with it but either way I tried out some new ones and decided to share my thoughts on them with you!

Clean and Clear deep action cream wash
This is a weird one because it really does feel like a cream when you put it onto your face, it's a lot thicker and nothing like your normal face wash. It smells nice and does leave your face feeling clean.

Neautrogena visibly clear oil free face wash
I don't like this one. I've also used the grapefruit version and didn't like that one either. It's just really hard to work with - the consistency of it is almost like a jelly/gel and I find it right slips off your hands making it hard to get any on your face to clean it with! It doesn't lather very well and I'm never left with a fresh, clean feeling face when I use it. I won't be repurchasing any of the washes from their line again.

Garnier Pure Active charcoal scrub
I really this one. I like the way it feels; like it's exfoliating your skin just enough and it lathers pretty nicely. It also eaves your skin feeling soft and clean.

Garnier Pure Active deep pore unclogging wash
Finally my favourite one. I'm so glad I found somewhere that still sells this and I'm buying a couple every time I go into Asda just in case they are phasing the product out. It lathers really nicely, smells nice and leaves your skin feeling super clean and fresh.

It seems like I'm a fan of the Pure Active line from Garnier - what are your favourites?
