My Favourite Christmas Films

The Santa Clause, Chronicles Of Narnia-The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe
Love Actually, Elf

Christmas is almost upon us (6 days to go!) and to get myself in that festive mood I love to watch my four favourite Christmas films.

I'm sure many of you will have seen or at least heard or these films but if you haven't you should definitely check them out. A few more that are usually on around this time of year which are always worth a watch include The Holiday, Home Alone and Miracle On 34th Street.

What's your favourite Christmas film to get into the holiday spirit? :)

Review | Let The Good Times Roll Cleanser

I think I may have found my new favourite cleanser! This product is new to Lush this year and although it was released as part of their Christmas range I *think* it's going to become a permanent addition to their line of cleansers, which is great news for those of us who now can't live without it!

It doesn't exactly look like a regular cleanser, but it certainly does a great job at cleaning your skin. All you do is break off a small amount, get it wet with a bit of warm water and rub it between your fingers until it looks like the photo above. You can use more product for a thicker consistency or less for a watery cleanser. Then just wash your face as normal. It's slightly exfoliating so it feels like it's really getting rid of any dirt or make up on your face. Rinse off with hot water (I use my muslin cloth too as it wipes the product off quite well) and you're done. Feel free to marvel at how soft your skin is and how it actually smells like a combination of cake and popcorn.

After my first time applying this, I was hooked! My skin has never felt so good and after using this it felt so moisturised that I could have sworn I'd already applied my moisturiser. Definitely one to add to your Christmas list.

Have you used this or any Lush cleansers before? :)

Review | Real Techniques Stippling Brush

I'm currently sat in bed with a rather large cup of tea and some Millies Cookies as I've been pretty ill over the last few days, hence the lack of posts. I've been meaning to write this review since I picked this brush up last week so as I'm feeling a little better today I thought I'd get this up. So let's crack on!

Real Techniques brushes have been available for a while now, I know a lot of people say they are good but I just never got the hype about them...until now. 

I've always applied my foundation/BB cream with a regular flat foundation brush and I must say I've never had any problems with this. It got the job done so I never thought to change it. Browsing blogs on here I noticed a lot of people using this Stippling Brush to apply their foundations which left their skin looking pretty flawless! I finally caved when I saw this was in stock in Boots last week so I picked one up to try out. 

So far I have not been disappointed! This brush is a miracle worker, it blends my Garnier BB Cream in so well and leaves my skin looking amazing. I've even had a few compliments on how nice my skin looks after using this brush! It's so quick to do and as it blends so well you're not left with any awkward lines of foundation anywhere on your face that haven't been blended properly.

If you have yet to pick one of these up or are currently thinking about it, I highly recommend that you do. I was doubtful at first but now I know that I'm never going back to a regular foundation brush after using this!

Have you tried this brush before or own it yourself? What do you think? :)
