Cleanse and Tone Treat- & Other Stories
I recently paid a visit to the newly launched & Other Stories store on Regent Street to see what all the fuss was about and I was completely impressed with it's fashion and beauty offerings. Owned by the world-renowned H&M it was always going to be an amazing new store and I'm sure I'll be heading back in no time.
Although the clothes and accessories were so very beautiful, I decided to steer clear of the rails and gorgeous displays of accessories for the sake of my poor bank balance, and so I headed for the beauty section instead. (Talking myself into the mindset that buying a smaller and less expensive item isn't so bad...!)
The beauty counter itself was very inviting and all the products are neatly presented so you can find exactly what you're looking for. I've been looking for a slightly cheaper cleansing alternative for a while and I'm so happy I stumbled across this £5 cleanse and tone treat as it is a complete bargain and beauty saviour.
Before I made this purchase, I've been using an oil based cleansing oil (Shu Uemura Beautifying Oil to be precise) and although it's an amazing luxury product, I've really missed having a creamy cleanser to remove my makeup at the end of a long day. I find creamy cleansers to be much more gentle to my skin as it can be quite sensitive at times.
So here's what I love about this cleanser:
1. It's very good value for money and actually makes my face feel clean and refreshed after a long day of tube hopping and continuous walking through London. The scent of the cleanser does smell slightly sweet but not too overpowering and the formula feels light on the skin too.
2. I think the size of this product is absolutely perfect as it's great for carrying in your handbag or luggage if you are constantly travelling from A to B. I'm planning to take one on holiday in a weeks time!
3. The fact that it's a cleanser and toner in one go makes life a lot simpler, especially when you're tired and taking your makeup off feels like an absolute chore! Plus it also saves money as there's no need to buy two separate products.
4. The packaging is pretty nifty as it has a screw top that controls the amount of cleanser you use, ensuring that you don't apply too much in one go.
For my first & Other Stories beauty buy I've been very impressed and will be keeping an eye out more bargain buys. But for now I'm going to bulk buy this cleanser before it's gone!
