Take It Away
Makeup Remover Lotion
To use: Apply to dry skin, rinse of tissue off.
I am a nightmare when it comes to taking my makeup off. I don't think I've ever explored all my options as to developing some sort of routine to this daily ritual. Not that I don't want to have a lovely 500 step process of making my face nice and fresh again, it's just that I'm really lazy. Finding this little treat in the gift bag is perfect as I want new and exciting products to fall onto my lap so I can give them a go. The back of the tube says it's for all skin types (win) and I applied all over my face and my eyes.

Applying the makeup remover lotion..
I used 4 cotton pads to remove the excess and it was pretty amazing at taking my eye makeup off. I applied a couple of times more and to my surprise it didn't leave my skin looking red at all which a lot of other products usually do. It was really quite wet which is good as you don't need much of the product to get a good result. Even though this has been the best product I've ever used to remove eye makeup it did feel a little too powerful for my skin. Overall happy with this product.

Advanced multi-protection anti-oxidant creme
I LOVE this cream. I've been using this on/off for a few years and I always find I always go back to it. It lasts for ages and I really like the smell of this cream. It smells expensive and makes your face feel well good after it. Highly recommend giving this a go.

Advanced Night Repair
I've never used this serum or any serum so I was excited to try this. This is good for any sort of skin problems because it purifies the skin cells and gets rid of any past of current damage. It works from the bottom layer of your skin and helps the moisturiser absorb 50% better into the skin. All I know is when I woke up in the morning my face felt totally different, it was just really clear and was so much newer feeling, it's amazing and can't wait to see more results.

DayWear BB cream
I wasn't sure what to expect with this as I haven't had to much experience using different BB creams. For a 01 Light shade I found it a bit too dark for my skin. I liked how thick this product was as some products are really runny and too watery. I found this wasn't great for my skin as it was a bit too dry but overall as you can see by the photos it has a good coverage. I never applied anything on top of the BB cream as I wanted to see how it felt, after it dried it felt lovely and soft.

After DayWear BB cream..

Double Wear
Long-Wear Makeup - The UK's No.1 foundation 
This wasn't included in the gift bag but I did get a sample of this to take away. After using Double wear for a good few years now, it's without a doubt my favourite foundation. When I use foundation I want the best kind of coverage otherwise what's the point? Applied correctly it can last all day and night. With the various shades to choose from I always find I have a couple of bottles to hand, just in case I'm a little more tanned today than I was yesterday.

Sumptuous Extreme
Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara
Another one of my faves. The comb/brush is great and as you can see lots of lashes!!

Lipstick in Pinkberry
I always find Lauder Lipsticks are really creamy and they feel really nice on. It's a nice change to the cheapo ones I usually buy. This one is nice and pigmented and of course in my fave colour!

Shimmer lipgloss
06 Magnificent Mauve
I must admit I never buy or use gloss. My inner 90's child was very excited to use this as it has been so long. I'm totally loving a little bit of shine and because its in this little mirror lip thing it's so perfect for in your bag.

After using Daywear BB cream, Doublewear foundation, Lipgloss, Lipstick and Mascara all by Estee Lauder.

Thanks again to the lovely Rona @ Estee Lauder, Boots - Fort Kinnaird
