Liz Earle: Hot Cloth Soap & Polish Cleanser

Liz Earle. You must have heard of Liz Earle, right? If not, have no fear ’cause you can find Liz Earle counters at the large Boots and department stores!

Tonight, I’m reviewing Liz Earle’s Hot Cloth Cleanser because I’ve heard so much about it (all good things) and decided that I should blog about it now or forever hold my peace…

You know what? The 5* reviews I read on Boots, online shopping sites and previous posts I’ve come across were right! It’s actually a grest cleanser. It didn’t leave a spec of makeup on my face, left my skin hydrated afterwards with a soft-as-a-baby’s-bottom feel to it. My face has never looked so clean!

Some leave it on the skin overnight, most apply it, leave it to soak into the skin, then wipe with the muslin hot cloth provided (to polish), bedge washing off with hot water. I must say, the best way I found of using it was with the use of hot cloth. It really removed all the impurities and gave my skin a cleaner feel!

The packaging? You get quite a bit of product for the price (as well as a clean muslin cloth), it’s presented in a nice pastel-green bottle and case.

The smell? A fresh, luxuriously rich and soapy scent that lets everyone know that you’ve just washed your face.

The consistency? Liquid soap. It applies like gel.

The results wash-after-wash? Soft, clean and clear skin with a glow.

The muslin cloth? Beautifully smooth on the skin. It glides on and off the skin like a glove.

Should you purchase? Probably.

No – wait, what am I saying? YES! Yes, of course you should. Especially if you’re prone to acne or breakouts (and if your skin is mostly oily)!

Maybelline: Master Kajal

I just realised that I haven’t blogged about my most favourite eyeliner in the history of eyeliners! (which I’m sure dates back to the ancient Egyptian era, #Khol).

Listen, I’m going to say this once and only once – I cannot, for the life of me, use liquid or pencil liners. Me and liquid liners? Enemies. It’s just never going to happen. Same with pencil.

But, give me a khol one, and I’m fine. Weird, huh?

I think I like thicker crayon-style eyeliners better than the thin pencil/liquid ones because there’s more precision (for me, anyway).

Maybelline‘s ‘Master Kajal‘ is without a doubt the best one I’ve ever used. It really reminds me of one I used when I was in secondary school – it was a Moroccan brand, I believe… But, this one is ACER (not the computer)! I perfer Maybelline’s one to the one I used to wear because the old one smudged easily. This one, on the other hand, holds up pretty well!

Also, when my eyes water – in the windy or cold temperatures – I don’t cry black tears. Magic!

I love the flicks it does, I love how it lines my lids and my waterline… I also love how I can use it to corner the outer of my lids, giving more of a cat-eye effect.

In terms of shades, I understand there’s choice of a Pitch Black and a Lapis Blue. I picked up ‘Pitch Black’ because I have relatively dark eyebrows and lashes – once three or four coats of mascara have been applied, anyway. (I also had no MOFO idea there was a blue one in the first place!). If I had known… BOY! I would’ve bought them all! Alas, it must’ve been sold out when I went to pick one. 😭 #BlueIsMyFavouriteColour #ShowMeSomeoneWhoDoesntLikeTheColourBlue #IllShowYouColourblindness

So, yeah, to conclude before actually concluding, Maybelline’s Master Kajal is a must-have if you like khol liners or crayon-style liners.

5* liner. I was originally going to give it a 4.5*, but, after receiving compliments about it, I’ve decided to give it a 5!

The only reason I was going to give it 4.5* was because: if you lose the lid, it gets everywhere (and I mean EVERYWHERE) (and it picks up bacteria which isn’t safe if you’re applying on the waterline).

Guys and dolls,

Beauty Bae has an extremely exciting and absolutely amazing announcement! I’m proud to reveal that this blog will soon be sponsored by Harmony Life. Get the party-poppers out, lovers!  🎉

That lovely lot over at Harmony Life are sending me products to try in exchange for an honest review! 😍

Harmony Life chose to sponsor Beauty Bae because it’s “interesting” and “has a large following”. They’ll be featuring my blog posts on their Instagram and Facebook pages to over 40,000 followers, whilst keeping me in their Bloggers Circle! 😭☺️👍👏

This is the moment I thank all of you for reading, for commenting, for LIKING and interacting. You’re all LEGENDS! You’re all FAMILY (until we do a DNA test and find out otherwise). 💔 We’ll still be sisters/brothers, regardless!

However, my first post as a sponsoree (if that’s even a word) of Harmony Life will be published in a few months because it’ll focus on ‘Hair Jazz‘ (a lengthening  haircare line). According to the website, we should allow three months of continuous and consistent use before seeing maximum results – so I’m going to do as they say.

I’m so excited to try Hair Jazz because, as you may know, I’ve started 2017 somewhat bald (and broke) after my hairdresser trimmed* 65% of my hair off because it had gotten damaged by bleach.

*CHOPPED OFF

At the moment, my hair is up to my shoulders in length but it was halfway down my back prior to getting it cut after Christmas… So, now is the time we put those party-poppers away and get those violins out, sweethearts… Let’s all play our best renditions of Für Elise as we mourn the loss of my luscious albeit spilt-ended locks! 🎻😭

Love & light,

Miamii xxx
