I popped to Superdrug..

31.7.10

I nipped into Superdrug after work yesterday for some face wipes but came out with a little bit more than that.. isn't that always the way!

I remembered that my current concealer is too light so I have been doing without and although my dark circles aren't too bad, they're a little noticeable. So I browsed the makeup stands for an eternity before I spotted the GOSH Touch Up Concealer which has had some really good reviews from fellow bloggers. I picked up colour #2. At £7 I'm hoping it works a treat! I'll try to do a 'photo of the day' if I can!


I've raved about Garnier Pure Active products before, ever since I was sent some to review last year. I have repurchased the Deep Pore Unclogging Face Wash and Spot Fighting 24hr Moisturiser several times because I love them! They're often found on special offer which is fab (if I remember correctly I got £1.50 off each of these). Before I originally tried the range I was worried the products would be too harsh on my skin which can often be sensitive, but they were fine. In fact they made my skin feel cleaner, fresher and I had significantly less blemishes. The face wash lathers up really well and is good at taking off makeup and that icky feeling my skin can have after a day at work, and the moisturiser is great on a morning as a makeup base as it totally sinks in and leaves no greasy feeling behind at all.

At this point I remembered I needed face wipes! My Sister uses Johnson's Dreamy Skin 3 in 1 facial night wipes and I have been known to pinch them before, so I decided to pick up a pack for myself. The Johnson's range was on a '2 for £4' offer so I also got a night cream, as I like something a bit creamier and more heavy-duty for a night time than the Garnier one.

I'll let you know how I get on!

I love that dreamy skin night moisturiser - it smells so gorgeous! I had to throw mine out though as I dropped the jar and the lid cracked, I was devastated! xx

I know you've said the face wash removes make-up but how does it do with mascara? Currently the only thing that seems to truly remove all my makeup in one step is origins facial cleansing oil...

Victoria said...

@fordgredial - I tend not to use it around my eyes just incase, so I usually sweep a makeup wipe over them or dab some baby oil onto a cotton pad.

I like the sound of the Origins oil but I think my skin can be on the oily side sometimes so I'm not sure using an oil would help?

Jen said...

I'd be interested to hear about the Gosh concealer and see it in action... I'm always looking for new ways to conceal my dark circles! x

Kel said...

Let us know about the GOSH concealer, need a new one.

I can't use the Jonsons stuff, reacts with my skin really badly. :( shame as it smells lovely.

My skin can be oily but it really doesn't leave my skin with any residue because when you clean it off with a damp cloth the water makes it turn to a sort of creamy texture. Worth getting a sample imo - works out fairly cheap too, £15 bottle lasted me over 6mths of daily usuage.

The dreamy skin stuff is great. I used to use the night time moisturiser and I loved it. Now you made me want to get a new tub!!!
