Review: Simple Pore Minimising Toning Cleanser

Before buying this, I had never used a toner before, nor did I truly know what one was. After quickly Googling it, I can tell you that a toner’s purpose is to cleanse the skin, shrink the appearance of pores and restore the skin’s pH. I suffer quite a bit from large pores and I don’t think it’s an attractive look so I’m constantly on the lookout for a that one product that will make my skin look flawless without wearing any make-up. When I saw this in Sainsbury’s a few months ago, I decided to spend the £4.85 and get this Simple Kind to Skin Pore Minimising Toning Cleanser.

Lessons from America #1 – Getting to Denver

This time last year, I was in Denver, visiting my cousin and his family.

Achieving Anything In One Year

I was clearing out my emails on my break at work earlier today and saw that I had an email from Amazon, suggesting books that I would like to read. One of the categories was “Most Wished For” and the cover that accompanied it was from the book Achieve Anything in Just One Year: Be Inspired Daily to Live Your Dreams and Accomplish Your Goals. I had heard of the book before so decided to check it out online. When I saw that it was only £1.99 (usually £5.68) I thought to myself why not and hit the “buy now” button.
