I'm so glad that micellar waters are now easily available on the high street. Of the ones I've tried Simple micellar water seems to be the closest dupe for Bioderma. There's absolutely no scent or colour, it removes all traces of eye make up and feels gentle and soothing on the skin. It's designed to leave no residue so I've been using this as a toner too on days when I've been wearing particularly heavy make up.
Spring may be officially here but my skin is still going through its dry patch. Having tried various lotions and potions, S5 replenish serum seems to be the most effective. It's a light serum oil which you use before moisturiser and it instantly calms and nourishes the skin. I'm not a big fan of the scent, but it soon disappears and the results are worth it for me. In fact on a recent trip I forgot to pack this and even though I was only away for one night my skin was visibly red and sensitive the next day. Well worth a look if you also have dry/dehydrated skin.
For haircare I've been using Swell advanced volumising shampoo and conditioner. A range specfically designed for fine flat hair without the usual chemicals (eg. SLS and parabens). The shampoo is gentle yet clarifying and the conditioner nourishing without weighing down my hair. I wouldn't say there's a big increase in volume but as a gentle everyday duo I'd definitely recommend.
I'm still loving my scented candles although with the warmer weather I've been gravitating towards Flamingo candle in raspberry and salted caramel, not to mention the fact that its bright pink! For me the scent is more zesty and sherbet like initially, with the fruitier caramel notes coming through as you burn the candle. It's certainly very refreshing and perfect as a transitional scent going into Spring/Summer.
Finally as I've been on annual leave last week I've been embracing the new Bourjois so lacque nail enamels. Think high gloss, creamy and pigmented -in fact they look almost gel like on the nails. Chair et tendre is a beautiful pinky nude and Flambant rose an eye catching coral that I've had so many compliments on.
