Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm Review (Vs. Liz Earle)

I'll start by saying that I've been an avid user of the super popular Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish for near enough two years, and for those two years, it served me well. Recently, though, I had the urge to switch up my skincare routine slightly as I felt as though my skin just wasn't looking the best it could. I'd heard so many beauty gurus and bloggers mention the Emma Hardie Amazing Face Cleansing Balm, and once I heard Caroline Hirons mention it, I purchased it right away.

The one thing I'd never loved about the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish was the simple fact that it was a cream cleanser. I just don't find these to be as nourishing for my skin as I'd like, as well as the fact that it just doesn't feel any way luxurious on the skin like the Emma Hardie cleansing balm does. I'll admit, in terms of cleansers and skincare products in general, I can be a bit high maintenance, haha.. anyone else? 


When I first received it in the post, the first thing I noticed was how high-end the packaging itself feels and looks, although it may not be the best for travelling if you prefer to travel light. The excitement was all a bit much so I removed my make-up as soon as I could, and fell in love with this product immediately.

Review: Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara

I've always had so much bother in the past trying to find a mascara to meet the needs of my desperately short, straight lashes. Every mascara that I had dried was either, (a) too clumpy, (b) too heavy and didn't hold a curl, or (c) made absolutely no difference in terms of length or volume.

A week or two ago, I'd been doing my usual round at the make-up counters in Debenhams in an attempt to find a high-end mascara that I'd possibly like. I asked several different girls for their opinion and recommendations.. whilst also looking up reviews online. I needed to be convinced that spending £25+ on a mascara would be worth it!
I had my eye on the Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara, and it was Ruth Crilly's review that then persuaded me to part with my £23 and give it a new home, although the fancy packaging definitely made me want it even more. I'm a complete magpie when it comes to shiny make-up packaging.
