Hi there! today’s post is about L’Oréal’s Skin Perfection Gel-Cream Wash for dry and sensitive skin.
This fragrance-free and soap-free face wash promises to remove make-up and impurities, to reveal a better skin texture, and to make skin feel silky-soft.
I’ve been using this face wash for 2 weeks now, and I’m very happy with it.
I think this face wash is definitely gentle and non-drying. And when used with a sponge or a wash cloth (or similar), it’s a fantastic facial cleanser.
Whilst I agree that this face wash leaves my skin feeling soft, I haven’t noticed any improvement in my skin texture. However, this is still a great face wash, and I would recommend it!
It appears that L’Oréal is replacing its entire Skin Perfection collection. So if you want to try this face wash, or stock up before it’s sold out, you need to be quick! My local B&M Bargains store sells this face wash. It’s £1.99 for a 150ml tube which is great value! B&M also sells other Skin Perfection products (toner, cleansing milk, serum, day and night creams…), so you might want to swing by your local B&M too!
Hi there! A few weeks ago I bought a few new Olay products – they were on a better than half price offer (£2.95 each instead of £5.99 each), so I had to have them. Now meet Olay Anti-Wrinkle Cleansing Milk, Olay Anti-Wrinkle Face Wash and Olay Anti-Wrinkle Toner.
Olay’s Ani-Wrinkle cleansing products promise…
– to help reduce the appearance of fine lines,
– to improve dull skin,
– to make skin look and feel smoother,
– to maintain skin suppleness,
– to promote the renewal of skin cells,
– and to “fight signs of ageing as you cleanse” (that’s what it says on the back of these three products).
I’ve now used these products for three weeks. And if you read on, I’ll tell you what I think of Olay’s Anti-Wrinkle cleansing products.
I think the cleansing milk is quite effective. It removes my make-up very well, and it doesn’t cause any problems when I use it to remove my eye make-up. I think this cleansing milk makes my skin feel and look smooth and supple. Nice!
I really like the face wash. It reminds me very much of Olay’s Total Effects Face Wash – the texture and the fragrance are the same! I think this face wash makes my skin feel great. It’s creamy and it exfoliates my skin gently. It’s perfect for dry skin and for everyday use.
The toner is very nice too. It removes make-up and cleanser residue without problems, and it makes my skin feel clean and refreshed. Whilst I prefer the fragrance of Olay’s blue toner, I can’t find any issue with this toner.
I don’t think that any of these products have made a difference to my fine lines. But I really enjoy using these cleansing products because they make my skin feel great. In addition, I’m 35, so I can accept that the fine lines aren’t going away. 🙂
Olay’s Anti-Wrinkle cleansing products are available for £5.99 each. The toner and the cleansing milk are 200ml, the face wash is 150ml.
Hi there! Today’s post is about B. Pure Sensitive Micellar Cleansing Wipes. I wouldn’t have bought these face wipes for myself, but Superdrug is currently giving them away for free if you spend £10 on skin care. Now that I have these wipes, I might as well just use them. 🙂
OK, let’s start. I was quite pleased to find that these wipes are really big, so one was definitely enough to remove my make-up. At first I was hesitant to use these wipes near my eyes, but then I just gave it a go and took my eyeshadow off – which worked out fine by the way. I won’t let these wipes getting any closer to my eyes though!
I was very pleased with how well these wipes removed my make-up. However, they left my skin feeling sticky and after a few minutes I could feel a tingling sensation on my face. So instead of taking chances, I washed my face (with my favourite face wash) to remove whatever residue these wipes left behind.
Now that I’ve used these wipes, I can say for sure that I won’t be buying them again. I’ll use up the ones I’ve got to remove heavy make-up, but since I have to wash my face after using them anyway, they’re not saving me time or money, so I’ll stick to my face wash (or cream cleanser) plus toner routine.
If you’d like to try B. Pure Sensitive Micellar Cleansing Wipes, they’re £3.99 at Superdrug’s, but they’re currently free if you spend £10 on skin care!

Hi there! Most of the time I use Olay products on my face, but occasionally I pick up products from other brands for a change, like this Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Wash which I bought for half price at the drugstore.
This face wash is aimed at people with oily skin that’s prone to imperfections, and it claims to target these imperfections, to awaken skin and to tighten pores.
OK, I’ve got dry skin, so this product isn’t really aimed at me. However, my pores could do with a little tightening and I wouldn’t say no to my skin being awakened, so I’ve been using this face wash twice daily for just over a week now.
To be honest, I didn’t notice any difference at all. My pores are exactly as they were a week ago and my skin does not look any fresher or more awakened. I’m also not loving the scent; it’s a tad too sweet for my taste.
However, I think this face wash is really great at removing make-up, so I’ll be using it up for sure.
Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Wash is available as 200 ml. It’s usually £4.99, but at the moment it’s on special offer at the two big drugstores.
