remove, moisturise & brighten

L'Oreal Absolute Makeup remover eye & lip
heal gel face*

L'Oreal Absolute  Makeup Remover Eye & Lip is a two part eye makeup remover that Emma actually recommended to me. It's a pretty good dupe for the Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover as it not only looks similar but works in exactly the same way. One swipe of this over the most heavy of eye makeup and it's gone. I found that it didn't sting or "cloud" my eyes and felt non greasy. Plus, the best thing about this is that it retails for less than a fiver and is often on offer, I picked this up for about £3!

Heal Gel Face is a new product to me but I've read a bit of blog hype about it recently so I was very happy when I was offered a sample to review. I've been using this as my day and night moisturiser for about two weeks now and in that time my skin looks plumper, healthier and more hydrated. All within just one week. I was so shocked how quickly this worked for my skin. It's packed full of skin friendly ingredients like  hylauronic acid and omega oils. Both of which work wonders for dry and dehydrated skin types like mine. The serum is quite a light white cream and a few pumps absorbs instantly into my skin. I was apprehensive about using the product at first because it contains silicones (my skin hates silicones) but it's worked well for me and I haven't broken out at all. At £49 it is VERY pricey but I really like it. My skin is very thin so anything that proves the collegen, makes my face feel and look fresher really help.s

The combo of HealGel Face and Peptabright have worked wonders on pepping my skin back up and evening out the tone.This is an old favourite but after I finished it up I never ended up repurchasing it. Recently I repurchased the serum because I was thinking back to a fail safe routine that worked for my troublesome skin. As I've had some horrible breakouts recently I've got some scars that need fading, paired with my my skin tone looking even more lacklustre than usual. I thought it was time to get it again. After three weeks my skin looks more radiant, even and less red. I've found all the Indeed Labs products I've tried work so well for my skin and I really like their no-fuss approach to skincare.

Have you tried any of these products?


  1. I love the L'OREAL eye make up remover, definitely a new favourite x

  2. The heal gel is something I need to to try

  3. I'm currently using the Clarins Instant eye makeup remover you mentioned so I shall have to try out the L'Oreal to see how it compares and review it on my blog! Being a student i'm ALWAYS looking for cheaper alternatives.

    Take a look at my blog :)

  4. I use the Loreal eye makeup remover too! I find that the one specifically for eyes rather than 'eye and lip' is the most gentle. I'd been considering trying the Clarins one as it's been hyped up so much. Maybe I'll save my dollars? Thanks! X

  5. I've heard that the L'Oreal Eye Make Up remover is great, I love their micellar water!

  6. I need some eye makeup remover! Might have to pick this one up!

  7. Pepta-bright sounds great!

  8. I've heard so much about HealGel! Pretty sure I can get a staff discount at work but it'll still be incredibly pricey.. hopefully it's worth it xxx

  10. I am soooo In Love with L'Oreal make-up remover- Using it by the way right now as well... I am using bottle after bottle... here is the latest post featuring it ;)

  11. I like the packaging of that Heal Gel, it looks serious, like it would actually do the job!

  12. Slightly gutted that I've picked up a high-end eye makeup remover when the highstreet seems to be churning out decent dupes for everything! Great little informative post :) Also I came across your blogging tips video, when I was feeling quite rubbish about my blog, and I just wanted to say it helped so much! Thanks for reminding us that OUR blogs are about US and how we chose to blog, and also to keep on at it! Quite the reminder I was in need of ^_^

  14. I've been eyeing Pepta-bright in boots the last few times I have been there but never picked it up, I think I might just take the plunge and get it, I've been reading Very mixed things!

  15. I'm really enjoying the L'Oreal cleansers and toners at the mo, they are so affordable and my skin is the best it has been in forever.

  16. I hadn't heard of these until now, but I definitely like the sound of them

    Love discovering new products ..x
