In the run up to Christmas I saw loads of adverts for a website called Semichem which I had never heard of before. I had a look at the website and ended up ordering the Lanvin L’Homme Sport aftershave as a gift. Semichem sell beauty products, perfume/aftershave and makeup. They also have a slightly random “House” section which has things like air fresheners, bin bags and batteries! Semichem has a big range of brands from Rimmel and Dove to DKNY and fcuk. There are some really great offers and you get free delivery if you spend over £25. The aftershave I ordered was dispatched really quickly and was packaged well so there was no chance that it would have smashed in the post. I hate it when things aren’t packaged properly – I ordered my work Secret Santa gift from Play and it arrived with the cardboard box all broken so looked like I was giving my Secret Santa a gift I had left over from last year! Anyway, back to Semichem… I will definitely be using Semichem again, there are some brilliant deals and I had really good service.
Today I thought I’d tell you about my new cleanser from Qsilica. It is a foaming gel cleanser which also acts as makeup remover. I had a facial for my birthday last year and I was told that I should try to avoid foaming cleansers because they tend to dry out skin but this one seems to be fine so far. The cleanser is good at removing makeup (I don’t wear a huge amount on my face so I’m not sure how good it would be if you wear a bit more sorry!) but a downside for me is that it isn’t suitable for use on eyes – I’m a bit lazy and prefer cleansers which also remove eye makeup! I really like using this cleanser and so far it’s been leaving my skin feeling nice and refreshed and squeaky clean so I’d definitely recommend it – it smells good too!
Qsilica is a natural skincare range which is new to the UK. The products in the range contain colloidal silica which is found in lots of vegetables and grains and is supposed to fight signs of aging. You can buy the products from Planet Health and the cleanser costs £15.95 for 100ml.
