BEAUTY REVIEW: Loreal Fine Flowers Cleanser & Toner

I'm one of those really sad people who gets sucked in by the packaging of beauty products rather than the actual content and benefits, however I think I have successfully managed to combine the 2 with this super cute cleanser and toner combo.

As I quickly approach 30 at a rate I can barely keep up with myself, I have started making a real conscious effort to take better care of my poor skin, which I have spent the last 15 years poking and prodding at, whilst sucking pretty much every last bit of natural oil out in a bid to rid every last blackhead or pimple.

When you are prone to spots it is common to try and combat this by minimising the oil on your face, however by doing this you skin can overcompensate, making the situation worse and the chances are your spots aren't even anything to do with an oil imbalance.

Ever noticed you get spots on your jawline at that time of the month? Below your jawline is often hormone related. Or perhaps you suffer a breakout on your forehead just as that essay is due in... textbook area for stress spots. Try and look into other potential reasoning behind your breakouts, you might be surprised.

Well moisturised skin doesn't have to mean a massive breakout, quite the opposite in fact. I personally found this article from really interesting. They test hundreds of products from make up to yoga mats, so you don't have to. The site is US based so prices are in dollars but most items are available in the UK or if not some of the products they review are definitely worth the shipping costs... or maybe an excuse for a getaway! 😜

Loreal have recently added a number of new lines to their skincare range including some mud masks I'm keen to try, but the fine flowers range sucked me in with its cute pink packaging and deliciously sweet smell.

I have been a micellar water and face wash girl for a few years now. I take my make up off with cotton pads and then wash with whichever face wash I have at the time.

What I really enjoy about the cleansing cream is that it makes you take more time and care over your face, gently massaging in the cream before removing it. It might just be me but I feel like it is getting to work deeper as I massage it in rather than just sweeping some water across my face. Removing make up is one thing, but actually CLEANSING is another.

The cleansing cream is super silky and removes my Estee Lauder double wear, no problem. I personally like to do 2 rounds of the cleanser, one to get the make up off and then a second to really cleanse the skin underneath before finishing off with the toner.

The duo leaves my skin unbelievably soft. My skin feels nourished without leaving any sort of residue or oil. It hasn't given me any spots despite being a lot milder than my usual cleansing products, and if I use it in a morning I find my foundation glides on perfectly without the need for a primer!!

The cleansing cream will set you back £7.99 and the toner £5.99 from boots, which I think is extremely affordable, however there is currently 1/3 off making this the perfect time to try the fine flowers range for yourself.

I hope you have found this article useful. If you do decide to give the range a try, be sure to let me know how you get on. Leave a comment below and be sure to follow me on instagram @the_foolish_disney_mortal to keep up to date with my posts.
