Pixi Double Cleanse

Ok without trying to sound too excited I have a new favourite skin care brand. Pixi. And it all started with the duo cleanser that I tried. I picked the Pixi Double Cleanse up from Marks And Spencer for a pricey £24.

The packaging of this product is definitely something that is eye catching. Anyone that knows me, knows that I'm a sucker for pastel colours, in particular pastel green. So I was instantly drawn to this range, and it definitely stands out of the shelf compared to other brands.

The duo cleanser is separated into two parts; the solid cleansing oil, and a luxe cleansing cream. So although it is contained in one box, it contains two products so I think it's great to have a two in one product.

I've found the solid cleansing oil to be really efficient in removing any impurities on my skin. Anything that remained on my face after removing my makeup simply glides off with this product. Like I mean literally glides right off leaving nothing behind.

The cleansing cream has proved to be really soothing. I just find that it's the perfect finishing touch to a deep cleansing routine.

As far as improvement to my skin, I've found that this product has really worked. I can truly say that my skin itself has never felt so clean and smooth. When I say it removes everything from your face, I well and truly mean EVERYTHING.

Overall I would rate this product a 10/10 and I will most certainly be repurchasing it. I honestly don't think I can live without it and I'll keep trying to convince people to give this a go because people are honestly missing out if they haven't tried it. Have you ever tried anything from the best brand ever, Pixi? If so let me know in the comments,

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade

Today it's finally time for me to start reviewing the makeup I got for Christmas. Better late than never eh?!


I was very lucky to receive the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in the shade Medium Brown. This retails for £18 pounds so is definitely on the high-end side of makeup. But the question remains, is it worth it?

The colour of this particular shade is very pigmented. You only literally need to dip your brush in the pomade and you will be able to fill a large chunk of your brow. The colours themselves appear slightly bolder and a tiny bit darker than the colour of the pomade itself. So especially when ordering online this is something to consider. However, I find that the shade "Medium Brown" is a good match for my natural brow colour which is crazy bold as it is.

The formula of this pomade is something that I would rate very highly. As I said earlier, you only need a small amount, and that small amount blends really well and smoothly. You are able to create precise definition to your brows and blend them to make them look as natural or dramatic as you wish.

And what is the lasting power like? One word: impressive. This product will not budge throughout the day, and not create any smudge either. As someone who lives in the sunny West Midlands (note the sarcasm) I have to put up with a fair bit of rain. And the dip brow pomade has seriously got your back in all weather, trust me it's not going anywhere.

Basically if you couldn't already tell I love, love, love this product. Looks like I'll have to be spending that £18 every time it runs out because I don't know how else I'll get those on fleek brows that are so essential in this day and age. I would rate this product a phenomenal 10/10, yes I went there. Have you ever tried this product before, if so let me know what you think,
