The Konjac Sponge

I went on a shopping trip to Selfridges in Birmingham today and discovered this strange sponge in the beauty hall. This is marketed as an ‘enriching, powerful and effective answer to premium skin cleansing.’

You dampen┬áthe sponge and use it to remove makeup either with or without cleanser. This didn’t remove my mascara however it did remove my other makeup.

The jury’s still out on this one as I haven’t found it any more effective than my usual cleansing cloths, but my opinion may change the more I use this.

Sensationail polish to gel!

sensationail polish to gel

For any girl like myself who has a ridiculous nail polish collection but likes the longevity of a gel polish, there is finally the perfect product.

You apply your regular polish and let this dry completely. Then you apply a coat of the polish to gel and cure this in your LED lamp for 30 seconds. Ta dah you have nails that last for 2 weeks in any colour that you want!

This only lasts around 2 weeks so not as long as a regular gel polish, however this is easier to remove, simply buff the top layer and then hold an acetone soaked cotton pad over the nail.
