Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm

Hi Guys,

You probably already know about the fact the Boots have have repackaged their Botanics range and have currently got a 1/3 off promotion across the range.  The Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm caught my eye as I had already read a review on another blog, but that was before the ingredients had changed. 
Let me tell you that I think that it is absolutely glorious... I have combination skin where some parts of my skin are oily, normal and dry (I know high maintenance, right).  I am usually use foam cleansers which seems to balance all these things out, so I was a little worried that this may be a little rich upon opening the pot, but I need not of bothered.  

This organic deep-cleaning balm contains a luxurious blend of Shea Butter, Rosehip and Jojoba Oil to leave skin smooth and beautifully clean.  The ultra-rich softening formula swiftly lifts make-up, while the gentle polishing action... helps dislodge pore clogging debris, revealing your beautiful radiant complexion.   

I use this in the evening and apply after I have removed my make-up with a gentle remover, I message the wax like balm onto my face, soaked the muslin (supplied) in hot water, placed it onto my face and applied a little pressure, I then use the muslin with circular motions to remove the rest of the balm, then splashed some cold water over my face to help close my pores.  I really like the way my skin feels and afterwards even in the morning I haven't got those shiny patch's it seems to really settle my skin.  It smells delicious, you can really smell the rosehip and the other essential oils that are included within the formula.  This is going to last me a long time because a little really does go a long way and at it current promotional price that's a bargain.  I you are looking for some thing a little special at a reasonable price hotfoot it down to your local Boots or online before this promotion ends.   

  • This product is suitable for all skin types, my skin type is combination and this is my own opinion on how this work for me and my skin.
What do you use to cleanse you skin?

Wish List #1

Hi Guy's,

I have to share the fact that I have fallen in love with... a bag!!  This is not just any bag, this is the Plaited Shopper from Zara.  This bag first caught my eye a couple of weeks ago but the person was walking past me so I didn't get the full affect of this bag, but while at work a customer walked past me with this bag and thats when it happened.  I had to go up to her (followed her around the shop... ok stalked her) and ask "Where did you get your bag from ?"  She actually told me she had to do the same to someone else in order to find out.  Imagine the things I can put in this bag (daydream).  Anyway when I got home I finally found the shopper online thinking if it's £40.00 I will buy it there and then but, it's £79.99 and I know that I cant justify this purchase when I know there are other things we need.  So I have decided to raise some funds by selling things around the house that I no longer have any use for, like my moses basket (sad face).  I am going to create an account when I do I will link it so you guys can have a look.  I really want this bag!!

In the mean time if you know of a cheaper alternative let me know!!

My Week #1

Hi Guys,

First I would like to say a big THANK YOU for coming over to look at my blog!  I get so excited when I see how many of you have had a look and I have had views from all over the world so I know that they haven't all been just me (tehe).

What have I been up to so far this week?  Well...
1.  I worked my notice of my job  and I am now enjoying a week off, so I am currently 'inbetween jobs' as I start my new one on Sunday.  That job has to be the shortest on record I lasted 8 weeks, which I am not very proud of cause I usually stick at things no matter what but, I just could shake the feeling that things were not right.  So I got out quick!  I am trying to look at everything positively and believe that I learned a massive lesson about that short lived experience and that's I would have realised my worth and that I can do great things. 

2.   I bought some goodies... well actually I traded in some of my tatty old silver jewellery for a second-hand ring which I saw on Cherry Healey while watching her programme How to Get a Life (I know copycat).  I also got a silver stags head broach that I have had my eye on since January, I love it and will pinit to my beloved fur coat I got as a Xmas present a few years ago from River Island.  

3.   I had some money left over from my sale and popped into Boots and picked up a Collections 2000 eye liner in black because I had seen this and wanted to try a recreate the look with shades that suited my skin tone.  I will let you know how I get on with this as I think that its gonna be fun.    Also I picked up a  pot of Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm I saw this on Megs blog but I will post my own review and let you know what I think of the balm after using it a couple of times, my views are positive at the moment.

4.  Finally the bf has jetted off to France for a few days so as punishment I have given him a list of things to bring back with him so I will let you know if he comes good. 

I am learning so much from my short time of blogging and reading up loads trying to improve the look and hope to learn more.  I hope you guys have had a good week to!!  Let me know what you have been up to.

A Shower Spa Experience

Hi everyone... Welcome to Five10Eleven this is my very first post, so here goes...

I love abit of Boots me, on one of my lunch time visits I was looking for a beauty treat (and wanting to use my £5 off No.7 Voucher).  I stumbled across their Luxurious Foaming Shower Oil  .  I have really sensitive skin (which I choose to ignore), but the ingredients list and the fact that it is hypo allergenic had me interested. The shower oil contains Argan and Grapeseed oil and is also packed with Omega 6 and 9, the fragrance is to die for and is like a spa experience in your own bathroom.  I used it with a cloth and the product foamed a little when applied to my wet skin while in the shower. I was expecting more foam/lather but, because of the oil content I suppose a little will do.  The nice thing was after I dried my body there wasn't that tight feeling I get after I have used a shower gel.   It claims to leave your body hydrated all day long, I still moisturised (but that's because moisturising is my religion), I can see how those with less dry skin could 'shower and go' after using this product.  I do think the price tag of £9 is abit pricey but if you are using their £5 off No.7 Voucher its well worth the treat.  Boot £5 off No. 7 Vouchers expire 15/07/12.  This is a product I liked and would defo recommend, plus my son told me I spelt like flowers when I got out of the bath which is always a bonus!!
