Products I regret buying

Hi all,

Just a quick one for today, I've purchased two products recently that I really wanted to share with you as I have had some problems with them. 


First is this Pure Cucumber Eye Roll-On, I purchased this from Home Bargains for 99p, to be honest its my own fault for thinking that something you put on your eye for less than a quid would be a good idea. I gave this a go and boy did this sting. I was actually in agony it burned, it stung and made my eyes water. I do have sensitive skin and eyes so this may be why. I think because it says pure and cucumber I thought I would be ok. I was wrong. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone as it was excruciatingly painful and wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. It really hurt. I would say spend a bit more and get a Garnier one if its something you want to purchase.





Next up I found these at Tesco, from memory I think they were two for £1.00. I used these to remove my make up. I have since been informed that face wipes are bad for your skin so have stopped using wipes altogether, however these in particular not only burned my face and brought me out in a nasty rash, they also gave me an eye infection. This hurt like hell and looked disgusting. I struggled to wear eye make up for a couple of days and washing my face took forever as I had to be super careful to not catch my eye. Again because they said fragrance free and suitable for all skin types I thought I was OK, how wrong I was. I have to say lesson learned, when it comes to my face and yes I definitely wont be bargain hunting and only going for things that I have used in the past. 

Once again please take a look at my previous post I would be so glad if you could help me with this. I will also be linking your blog to your picture so anyone who reads can see your blog. 

See you all soon

Lots of love

Todays Haul (Very picture heavy!)


Hi all,

I haven't done a post in a while due to being extremely busy with work. I've also been very short on cash this month, we are off to Legoland Windsor with the kids in August and have decided to stay over in London for a couple of days. I know how expensive London is so we are saving every penny we can for when we go cause I'd like to do a bit of shopping whilst I'm there also :-) 

So due to my lack of money I haven't been into town for a while as it just kills me to walk past all the lovely make up and not be able to buy anything but I had some money through Top Cashback come through so decided to go and have a mini shopping trip. It was only £30.00 but at least I could get a few bits, I have to say I'm rather happy with my purchases

Here is what I bought, first up I went into Bodyshop for a little browse and spotted these for £2.00 each so I snapped them up, the shampoo was actually chosen by my son, he stood smelling everything in sight and decided that this smelled the best so wanted it and for £2.00 I couldn't say no. I needed a new toner anyway so hopefully this Cucumber Freshening Water will do the trick!


Next up I popped into Superdrug and picked up these.





I went in for the Garnier Pure Wash, I was looking online this morning and saw this so I wanted to give it a try. It was only £1.95 so if its horribly bad for my skin its not cost me much.





Then I spotted that the Accessorize make up was on offer, so I picked up this eyeshadow trio for £2.95   and its called The Good & The Bad, its so pretty




These masks were in the clearance section and were 99p each, they have up to 10 uses so I grabbed two considering a sachet is normally around £1 for 1 use.




Next up I popped to the market style make up shop near me and spotted this Smooch bronzer, it was only £2.99 so I had to get it as it looked so pretty. I currently have about 8 bronzers on the go and have no need for this whatsoever but I challenge anyway to walk past this and not buy it!









I then popped into H&M to pick up some black leggings, I really love the quality of them from H&M and they beat any other high street shop I have found for leggings and for £5.99 you can't go wrong. They also had a sale on some bits and pieces so I grabbed a few 


Everything (apart from the leggings) was £1


This is a cute little Mickey and Minnie mouse compact mirror. 


Set of 3 mini nail polishes (for just over 33p per polish I couldn't leave these behind!)



In case you can't guess from the photo this is a Cassis Noir Lipbalm and it smells DIVINE!!

Theres also a set of 2 Mickey and Minnie Lipbalms in Cherry & Vanilla but the picture wouldn't upload for some reason but they were also £1.00

And finally, I popped into Aldi, yes Aldi! I have run out of my usual moisturiser which sets me back £40, I can't afford that at the moment so asked around for some cheaper alternatives and someone suggested I try the Lacura range at Aldi so I went in to take a look and they had day and night creams for a bargainous £1.99 each, I really hope this stuff suits me as it will save me a small fortune!










I also grabbed a Lacura eyeshadow duo whilst I was there. Again it was only £1.99 and they are so pigmented. My only issue is that there is ALOT of packaging for just an eyeshadow duo but I will look past this as the colours are so pretty :-)












I'll do some reviews on the individual products once I have had a chance to try them out, I'm so hoping to come back to you with fantastical things to say about the creams, keep your fingers crossed for me ladies!

See you all soon!

Lots of Love

I need YOUR help!

Hi all,

I've been speaking to a lot of people recently and have come to the conclusion that everyone is way too negative about themselves. I constantly hear my nose is too big, my lips are too thin, I'm too fat, I'm too thin and no one seems to focus on their positive points. 
This is where you come in, I would like to get as many people involved as possible. I would like people to write down on a sheet of paper 1 or as many positive points on their physical appearance, and not something like my hair is ok, I want it to be something really positive. Maybe its big sparkly green/blue/brown/hazel eyes, full pouty lips or even a perfect shapely bum and take a photo of yourself holding it. 
I want to post as many of these photos on my  blog to encourage ladies everywhere to focus on all of there good points and not always putting themselves down. I'd like you to email the photos over to cosmeticfanatic86@gmail.com and if you have a blog let me know and I  can post a link to your blog under your photo. 
If your shy you can put the sign over your face but it would be great if everyone could hold it up and be proud to show their face and their positive point. Once I've got enough I will do a blog post for all to see. Hopefully you will all get involved. I will be doing one too as I'm also guilty of always looking down on myself. 

Lots of love and hope to see your pictures soon!

Come on ladies, lets all get involved and spread the word!
