Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish

I started using the Liz Earle cleanse and polish in March, and I have never looked back. Before Liz Earle, I used normal facial cleansers from various drugstores, which cleansed my skin, but I never felt like it made me skin glow, or feel slightly different. The hot cloth cleanser is amazing as it acts as a 2 in 1 makeup remover and facial cleanser. You only have to squeeze a small amount of the liquid, massage it onto your skin and then polish it off with the Muslin cloth. I noticed straight away how the makeup just slid off, and my skin looked and felt so clean.  Although this product is fairly pricey, it is defiantly worth the result, it can take a little more time than the usual cleanser, but your skin should be worth it! However If you can’t stretch your budget this far, then try the Superdrug’s own replica; the hot cloth cleanser. I have also tried this cleanser and find it works just as well. It may not include as many natural ingredients as the Liz Earle but it still does the job, and is half the price, which you can’t complain about.

The vintage Handbag

This is the gorgeous handbag I purchased a few days ago at a little vintage shop in the centre of Leeds. This is the style of handbag I have been looking for everywhere, one which is petite and has stunning brass framings along the edge,  with a little 1950’s shape to it. I have come across a few replicates in the last couple of months from the likes of Primark and top shop, but nothing matched up to something which has been passed on from the delicate and demure 50’s, almost reliving that era of fashion. I feel like I would be cheating fashion and vintage if I bought a fake look alike. I was so lucky to find this £10 bargain, It does hold a few imperfections to it though, having scratches and marks on the metal panels, but to me this just proves to people that it really is vintage, The musky almost dirty smell on the inside of the bag almost certainly proves this.  I feel like this style of handbag, one which can sit comfortably and cutely on the arm, or a high riser on the shoulder, will take over from the much loved tote bag. Its simplicity and history are something which blows all the other styles out the water. If any style of bag is worth being hunted down this A/W it’s the vintage style.
