Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser

I've been using this cleanser for a few months now and steered away from reviewing it because I wasn't sure what I thought. I've never heard a bad thing about Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser and when this puppy was on 2 for £3.99 in Superdrug when they're £5.99 each (Superdrug fail. Y you be so stoooopid?!!) I couldn't really say no...
What it claims to do: 'Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser with muslin cloth is ideal for removing dirt and make-up whilst providing gentle exfoliation'
...I started using it once a day by wetting my face slightly and rubbing in the cleanser then buffing away with the muslin cloth ran under warm water. The cleanser is really creamy and lovely and removes all my makeup but I found it kept bringing my skin out in spots, which is very rare for me. I noticed it was worse if I did a cleansing mask after or used a heavier moisturiser after toning. I've come to the conclusion that the warmth of the hot cloth mixed with the exfoliation opens my pores too much for other product to then get stuck. Nightmare. I've gone to using it once every 3 days and sticking to my old skin care routine for the others & it's working really well, my skin is smooth, soft and clear- just loovlay jublayyy!! I would recommended it if Liz Earle, just start using it a few days a week and build it up to avoid the volcanic eruption occurring on the face look, personal fave.
Hot Cloth Cleanser is available from Superdrug for £5.99 (it's currently on 3for2 with other items in the vitamin E range too... Oooh happy dayssss!)

Highstreet Lipsticks.

Hello there everyone :) Taking a well deserved dissertation style break to show you my favourite highstreet lipsticks. I'm a sucker for MAC lipsticks but at £13.50 (cripess) a pop they're reserved for special occasions so instead back to the high street we go! I was strictly a nude lipstick kind of girl until recently when I've really bonded with brighter colours, who would have thought it eh?!...
 Barry M 101 : a whiteish nude, lovely for summer though :)

 (Apologies for cracked lips! arghhh) Body Collection- Poison: a deep purple, a bit of a lip stainer for a day after though...

Miss Sporty- Striptease: a slightly shimmery nude

Barry M- 52 : a bit daring but lovely with an all black outfit :)

 Revlon Deluxe Creme Lipcolour- 01 Poppy: a lovelyyy classic red

 MUA- Shade 1: really moisturising and stays well all for £1, holy moly!

 ELF Minerals- Natural Nymph: my favourite nude ever besides GOSH- Darling and MAC- Myth, its really drying though, saddens me, SOB.

All my love,
Loula x
