Airport haul!

Another week, another airport.  Last week I was in Cairo on a business trip and I picked up these goodies from Dubai Airport on the way.

Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel, Clarins Water Purify One Step Cleanser, Nuxe Cleansing Water

Adrienne from The Sunday Girl blog raves about this Clarins cleanser!  Suitable for all skin types, this gel cleanser turns into an oil when you rub it on your skin then into a milky lotion when you add water to rinse.  Contains Marula oil for radiance and comfort.  I really like this type of cleanser so am looking forward to trying it.

I also picked up these two cleansing waters, one from Clarins and one from Nuxe.  I'm really intrigued by Micellar waters as a one stop cleanser.  I wouldn't cleanse with them daily (Bioderma is too drying for me) but they are amazing for lazy days or late nights when you can't be bothered with a full cleanse.

The Clarins one is for combination/oily skin but it also comes in a normal/dry skin formula as well.
This is a one step cleanser than can be used on face and eyes to remove make up and general daily grime.  This version contains Moringa Seed extract and mint to purify and tone.

I read about the Nuxe Micellar water on a blog-but I can't remember which sadly.  I think it was maybe recommended in the comments on someones post.  This micellar water contains rose petals so should be less drying than Bioderma.  It's alcohol free and is suitable for sensitive skin.

Mac Pro Longwear Lipcreme and YSL Touche Eclat

I've never tried the Pro Longwear formula but swatches of these lipsticks seem highly pigmented, smooth and quite creamy.  I also picked up a twin pack for the holy grail YSL Touche Eclat after I ran out and I got told I looked tired in the office!!

Prolong and Positively Dashing
