KUESHI PURE AND CLEAN FACIAL TONER

Say 'hello!' to Kueshi - the best thing to happen to my skin since I discovered Freederm's moisturiser. I first discovered the Kueshi 'Pure and Clean Revitalizing Face Toner' in my January 2015 Glossybox, and was pleasantly surprised because previous toners I'd tried had left my skin feeling dry and tight. 

On first impressions the toner exceeded my expectations and left my skin feeling soft and clean, revealing makeup clogging my pores that I thought I had previously removed (goodbye breakouts). After a few weeks of using this twice daily, I noticed a huge difference in my skin. Not only was my face feeling moisturised and clean, but I had fewer breakouts and found my skin looking alot calmer. I'm not quite ready to go sans-makeup yet but this is definitely a step in the right direction.


"Revitalizing Toner moisturizes and re-balances skin, providing a sensation of freshness and softness with optimal results. Thanks to a combination of moisturizers and natural ingredients, the formula restores perfect balance to the skin. Controls shine in oily-prone areas and softens dry areas, leaving the skin feeling comfortable, fresh, healthy and perfectly clean." - Glossybox.co.uk

A downside to this toner, and maybe the only one, is that it's not easy to get hold of. Unfortunately it's not available in any high street shops that I know of, possibly due to the fact that Kueshi is a Spanish based company. I had trouble tracking down this exact toner online however, their astringent containing alcohol can be bought for £12 with free delivery here. Alcohol can dry out the skin so I'd recommend trying to get your hands on this type if you've sensitive or dry skin normally. 

Added bonus - that's not a coloured bottle, the toner is actually pink.

MINI TOPSHOP BEAUTY HAUL


It's not very often that I'll buy from the Topshop makeup range - the main reason being that my local store's beauty stock is limited. However, I've fallen in love with their eyebrow pencil which I originally bought in Glasgow, and was able to collect it at my nearest branch. Gold medal for anyone who manages to order only one item from the Topshop website!

I can't remember the original shade of the eyebrow pencil I purchased in Glasgow - it's slightly lighter than the one I received, but although I've recently went blonde I just can't part with brunette brows. The brow pencil glides on effortlessly without tugging and comes with a handy spool to tame any runaway hairs.


Another item I couldn't resist buying was the Chameleon Glow in 'Wax + Wane' (described as a purple) which just so happens to be the most pigmented eyeshadow I've ever seen! It's dualchromatic so it appears two different colours, depending on the light - a little two much for day wear but great for night. For maximum effect it should be patted on the lid with a damp, flat, eyeshadow brush.

Lastly, although I'm more of a lip-liner-gal, I ordered Lips in Sashay Away, a glossy deep brown shade. Again, this lipstick is highly pigmented and a bargain at £8. I didn't realise how great Topshop lipsticks actually are - I can't wait to experiment with more colours. I recently used this lipstick and Topshop's eyebrow pencil on my sister, if you follow me on Instagram you can see it here.

Any other Topshop beauty products I should try?
