No7 Cleansing Brush 

I felt like the luckiest person in the world last month when I received a package from my lovely friend Debra-Bow… this lovely lady needs no introduction you almost certainly know who she is.

In this package was some Kiss nails, a highlighter and shockingly the No7 Cleansing brush. We have had many a conversation on what’s app… and we got talking about cleansing brushes. I used to have the Clarisonic but gave it to a friend after it just not working for me. I tried, oh I tried, it worked for awhile, then it just made me so red I looked like I had fallen asleep in the garden with no SPF on. Not good. I was a little scared to use the No7 brush BUT.. this is what I thought.

First of, I love it’s battery powered, no charging cables! Simple. It’s light and the replacement brush heads are super cheap too (two heads for £8…. bargain!!). The brush head has long ish bristles and are so soft on the skin.

After first use I was hooked, I tried it with a few different cleansers and loved it with my C&P but after a trip to Boots I bought the Tea Tree Witch Hazel and active Charcoal wash, which I have done a post on. Well it was a game changer, massage the cleanser in, wet the brush and go in circular motions around my face. Wow!

The brush has two speeds, push the button once and it’s a slowish speed, push again and it speeds up. I like it on the first setting as I find on the fastest one water and cleanser go flying off everywhere haha.

My skin feels so soft and smooth every time I use this. I was using the charcoal cleanser with the brush after my first cleanse in the evening every day, however, my skin couldn’t handle it everyday so I use it minimum once a week usually on a Sunday for a deep clean and during the week if I have worn heavier make up.

When I first started using the brush I did have a breakout but I think was more hormonal. The breakout cleared quickly due to really deep cleansing my skin.

If you’re thinking of getting a face brush of some kind I highly recommend this brush being your first stop, as I think it’ll be your only stop and you’ll be saving the pennies. I wish I got this brush first instead of the Clarisonic.


Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser

I have seen reviews on this hot cloth cleanser a few times and because I am so dedicated to my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish I just never went and bought it. Well I finally bought it after Debra Bow did a review and I really don’t regret it. The first point I should make is the Superdrug hot cloth cleanser was £4.99 for 200ml compared to the LE C&P which is £28 for 200ml… I thought why not give it a go!

The smell is totally different but I find the texture the same. The smell of the vitamin E one is so delicate it’s great for those days you don’t fancy any fragrances around. I find it isn’t as strong as the cleanse and polish, if I get distracted by my lad half way through cleaning my face with Liz Earle my face will be red, that’s if I leave it on for a minute or so!

In terms of make up removal I do find I need to use an eye make up remover with the vitamin E one but not with Liz Earle. My skin feels so smooth after using this though and although I need to remove my eye make up I generally do anyway as don’t like mascara all over my face. I think once I have used my Liz Earle one up I will just buy the Superdrug one, I can’t justify spending an extra £23 on a cleanser I can get for £5 which in my opinion is just as good.. and some places better!

If you have used this cleanser I want to hear what you think 🙂 XO
