Wash-me Wednesday cleansing alert MICELLAR WATER Summer’s hottest way to take it all off

Rating ; Micellar Water HOT cleansing LAZY GIRL ALERT mid-week any week, sometimes we all just want to quick-fix answer to cleansing.  Late home / late to bed / late from the gym just whatever – necessity is the mother of invention ; and along came micellar water.

Inside scoop;  One-second cleansing reality; sometimes I really I mean REALLY can’t be bothered with a beauty faff I just want to ‘dunk n splash’ (that’s what I call my daughter’s mid-week super-quick bathtime if we want a ‘whip her in, wipe her, pull her out night’!).  Because life can be too short for the Fully Monty sometimes.  BANG ; thank you beauty industry for inventing MICELLAR Water.

Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny ; Squeaky-Cleany

Rating ; You’d be balm-y not to try this, and no apologies this won’t be my only or last balm-rave, nor cleansing post. Butter, balm, melt in your palm, this dinky pot packs a cleansing punch & will have you squeaky clean faster than a jet powered rubber duck.

Inside scoop;  Butter, melty, softy-gently oh-so-effective I switched to cleansing balms/butters some time ago and am mildly obsessed.  Especially kind to sensitive and/or more mature skin they whip off make-up in a flash without the rash! Super-soft melting buttery balm this Body Shop Cleansing Butter was recommended by a friend to me and I’ve never looked book.  I wear alot of make-up, ok really alot, so if it whips off mine, trust me it works.

I confess I’m balmy about beauty balms I launched one of the first ‘rescue balm’s’ nearly 10 years ago  & now there’s a billion balms for all occasions.  Be warned some as you’d think can be a little over greasy, more like vaseline than balm and definitely don’t always do what they say on the tin. However Cleansing is a balm-match made in heaven as it gets in deep, lifts off make-up and impurities, but you can still freshen after with a toner. They call it sumptuous, I call this one plain effective and no-nonsense.
