Mini Feel Unique Haul...

I was on the look out for a new cleansing micellar water recently after using lots of different brands from Boots where I work. I had always heard good things about Bioderma and when a Feel Unique offer came through on my emails I had a nosey on there at the one for Oily skin! 

The Bioderma Sebium H20 is great for cleansing and removing makeup quickly and easily on a cotton pad. I purchased mine on Feel Unique in the 250ml size but they also stock a cute 100ml and larger 500ml sizes. I have had a previous micellar water in a 500ml and that just seemed to last too long and I felt my skin got too used to it half way through, so opted for this size so I can keep changing it up. RRP £10.99 250ml.

I have been using this Bioderma for a week now and im loving it so far, it doesn't sting or irritate my skin in anyway but removes my face makeup with ease and I love that it's aimed at oily skin for my skin type. It contains purifying agents, zinc and copper sulphate to help purify and limit the sebium secretion that us oily skin types suffer with. 

My only issue is like with most micellar waters I still struggle to remove my mascara as I do like to build mine up so it is rather difficult to remove. So I tend to do my full cleanse at my sink of a nighttime with either my Nip & Fab Deep Cleansing Fix which I adore or my Super Facialist Vitamin C oil along with a flannel to remove my makeup and then go over with the Bioderma for a double cleanse. I then also use the Bioderma of a morning to freshen up and remove any oil build up from a nighttime. 

What are your favourite skincare products? Any other recommendations for me to try?

I have always loved Urban Decay eyeshadows but up until now have only ever had them in palettes, so I thought I would try out a single shadow from their moon dust line. I have swatched nearly all the eyeshadows in stores many times before and always remembered Diamond Dog sticking out to me so I purchased this along side my Bioderma to qualify for the save £5 when you spend £20 email offer. RRP £14 each. 

Diamond dog is a a moon dust eyeshadow which are super fine pigments with micro fine iridescent sparkle through out. This shade is a perfect everyday easy shade for me which I would describe as a medium brown/taupe with champagne/silver sparkle. They are super soft and best applied with your finger tip to keep the intensity of the shadow. 

The very first day of wearing this I applied all over the lid and was slightly disappointed, it wasn't as intense as I had remembered swatching instores and thought it would have more glitter show through. But for some reason when I applied it the second day it was a whole other story, I loved it! Whether or not you have to get through the first layer that is sealed in I'm not too sure, or I had just not seen it in the best light. But I much prefer the look it creates now and have worn it many days since. It's a quick and easy look to apply all over the lid, blend the edges and gives a lovely dazzling effect. 

I would now love to try more single Urban Decay shadows, are there any you can recommend me trying? I have previously seen the build your own palettes which I would adore, so defo want to put one of them in to my collection one day to add my favourite UD eyeshadows into it. If you haven't seen them already then they are an empty palette which has four spaces to add you UD shadows, you can pop each shadow out of it case and keep them together in a gorgeously designed palette. Do tag me in any pictures if you have already done this, I would love to see.

Thanks so so much for reading this post today, I hope you enjoyed it. Do let me know in the comments your favourite type of posts so I can work on getting the best content on here for you!
