Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-in-1 Wash/Mask

This face wash was a little different to what I expected it to be. It was a lot less scrubby and instead has a more smooth consistency, although with some tiny grains.
The product is clay based and has a slight citrus scent that is pleasant and refreshing. The package states that it ‘quickly dissolves oil and helps eliminate spot-causing bacteria’. I have used this as both a wash and a mask and must say that I prefer it as a wash.

When used as a mask I find that the product is tough to wash off and can leave a slight residue. The exothermic reaction that happens when this product comes in contact with the skin is also a bit much in my opinion. I found it a little bit painful to wash my face with slightly cool water after using this as a mask because of the reaction, however when used as a wash the product is not on the skin for long enough to cause the same level of pain.

When used as a wash the product washes onto the face and the tiny grains can be felt, it is a nice wash that is rather thick. After rinsing off, which does take a while; the skin feels clean and fresh, and I have seen a noticeable difference in my skin being brighter since I have started to use this product. 

Overall I think this is an ok product, but I personally prefer the Garnier 3 – in –1 product that is very similar to this as the wash also is a scrub.
I purchased my tube from Savers, but it is also available from Boots for £3.79 (150ml) which is a pretty average price for this kind of product!

Have you tried this face wash/mask? What did you think?

M.A.C. Lady Danger

From heading to the MAC website for one product, I found out if I just spent a little more I would get free shipping! (Very clever MAC!) So this little beauty just dropped into my basket!

Lady Danger is a matte finish, vivid bright coral–red colour that is more red than coral to my eyes, but still a gorgeous colour! It is a perfect spring/summer colour and I cannot wait for the warmer weather to really wear this lipstick to the max. It is very slightly drying on the lips after a little while, but personally I believe that is just something you get used to and part of the deal with matte lipsticks. It lasts a good length on the lips too, even up to 6 hours and it still looks good! It is packaged in the signature bullet MAC packaging so in nice and slim and sleek!

This is easily one of my favourite colours at the moment as I love the red-orange, coral look, but I know it isn’t one that suits everyone. This was £15 from the online store (but I did get free shipping!) and if I ever use it all up I’m sure to get a new one!

Have you tried lady danger? What’s your favourite lipstick?
