Tata Harper Refreshing Cleanser

Let's get the bad news out of the way, this costs £60. It's like ripping off a plaster, say it quickly and move on.

I ordered this about a month ago after reading rave reviews online. It is in a glass bottle which is annoying, it feels like an accident waiting to happen. So far it's all in one piece but every day I feel like I am playing with fire in my bathroom.

Is it worth it? It smells lovely, it is a creamy texture that you massage in to your dry skin. You then add a little water and massage a bit more and then you rinse it off. It leaves your skin feeling very cleansed. I like it very much but £60? It's a lot for 125ml. I am not convinced I will buy it again, I don't think it's significantly better than cheaper cleansers.

Saturday Chanel

Apologies for the lack of posts recently. I've been trying to stay away from cosmetic counters to channel funds into the kitchen project. However, this morning I woke up and thought 'sod that' and went to my nearest Chanel counter. I was in the market for a new foundation for Autumn. Aren't we all? Summer is great for tinted moisturisers, fake tan and a general carefree look. There is no doubt that it's getting chilly though and to make myself feel better about it all, I decided I needed to buy some treats.

I decided on this foundation. A very helpful French girl helped me. She was impossibly chic and I felt extremely unkempt as she expertly applied this medium coverage foundation. It's all dewy and glowy and very lightweight. Once she applied it, I needed a blusher so she went and chose one and naturally I bought that too. It's from the new collection and so delightful. It comes in this compact and then in a velvet case. I don't know how anyone resists Chanel, I mean look at it.

And I bought the serum of joy because I've been ruined for life. She gave me some samples (as well she might) and put it all in a Chanel bag and I sailed out feeling so much better about life.

Chanel makes everything better.

Nail colour of the week

I declare Autumn open. I have this lovely deep red on my fingernails and everything seems right with the world. Be gone neons, see you in the Spring!
