* Review - Introducing myself to new brands.

Hello everyone. I hope you're having a lovely start to April! I'm really sorry I've not been posting as much recently and the reason behind this, is that I've been studying for my exams! As you'll all know now, I'm in Year 11 and this year is very crucial for me, so unfortunately blogging has had to take a step back for the moment but I'm going to try and write as many posts as I can. I know that I didn't manage to get all the posts up that I should have last month but revision has been very intense. I must apologise also to some PR companies because my reviews are a little delayed because I just haven't found the time to write. 

Anyway, today's post is about the lovely company which you will have seen on my blog once before back in January and if you didn't read that post you can read it here. They are a lovely company and I feel so lucky to have had the chance to work with them again. Last time I was lucky enough to review a perfume but this time, I was lucky enough to be able to review a mix of both skincare and make up. I was able to choose the products which I received and I decided to pick products that I had never tried before and so I picked products from Clarins and Avène. They came packaged so nicely and safely and they came in about 9 days which I was super impressed by. 

The two items I chose were the Clarins Eye Collection which includes the; Clarins Wonderful Perfect Mascara, Clarins Eye Revive Beauty Flash, Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch and a white cosmetics bag. Then I chose the Avène Gentle Toner. 

From the Clarins Eye Collection, I really enjoyed using the eye revive beauty flash morning and night and I loved to use the Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch before I applied my make up. As for the mascara which is the wonder perfect mascara, I really liked it. I didn't love using it but it was a nice mascara to wear and it did lengthen my lashes a lot. I still wouldn't be able to justify the price of this mascara if I were to repurchase it.  This Eye Collection is £17 GBP which is a really good price! 

My favourite product out of all of the Clarins products was definitely the instant smooth perfecting touch, this really did 'prime' my face and got rid of any pores and fine lines. Again it is pricey and although I probably wouldn't repurchase it was a nice little product to use instead of priming the whole of my face. 

Then moving on to the Avène gentle toner. I absolutely love this product. As a skincare product I would definitely repurchase this. Although I love my The Body Shop toners, this was definitely a winner. It is so gentle and soft on the skin but toners the skin and makes my face feel so much more awake and I just really love it. This toner is £13 GBP which is again a really good price in my opinion.

I really hope you've enjoyed this post, the purpose of this was to show you all that I was introducing myself to new brands that I'd never tried before and it also shows you what have to offer! 

I would definitely recommend this company!
