Eyeshadows, mascara, lipsticks, blushers, bronzers, highlighters; it is no secret that I am just a little bit obsessed when it comes to makeup. I'm the type of girl who has her Feel Unique shopping list committed to memory and, while there are no changes there, my focus has shifted a little... to skincare.

With the New Year starting, I developed a new found commitment to my skincare routine. I have religiously cleansed, toned and moisturised and reaping the rewards as a result. And the brand which is the object of my affections? L'Oreal Paris.

A little while ago, I wrote a blog post about how much I was enjoying using the Gel Cream Wash. Since then, my collection has expanded and - spoiler alert - the rest of the range is just as good!

The Cleansing Wipes (£3.99)

Gone are the days when I would remove the days makeup solely with the use of a trusty wipe, but I do find that these do a wonderful job when it comes to wiping away even the toughest waterproof eye makeup. They have been formulated specifically for dry and sensitive skin, so they are really gentle.
The range also includes wipes for combination skin.

The Cleansing Milk (£5.99)

This creamy cleanser is expert at leaving my skin clear. After use, my face feels fresh, clean and well nourished. The combination of the rose and jasmine flowers spells great news for my skin, which has  felt far softer since I included this in my routine. It's non-greasy and light, so it's actually really nice to use.

The Cleansing Cream (£7.99)

I think this might be the real standout product for me. I incorporate the milk and the cream into my routine because, lets face it, who doesn't like a double cleanse?
You massage this into your face and neck, in circular motions and then use a cotton pad to wipe it away. I find this quite relaxing to do at the end of the day and I'm amazed by how great a job this does. I've used this after I've solely used (and thought I got all my makeup off with) micellar water and still not come back with a clean cotton pad. It's like my safety product, there to really make sure my skin is as clear as I think it is.

The Cleansing Toner (£5.99)

I round off my Fine Flowers routine with the toner. I've never committed to toners before and used them more as an afterthought, rather than because I genuinely knew their worth. That said, I do now see the benefits and I think this little one finishes the range perfectly. .
This toner is in contrast to acid based toners I have used in the past, as it is far more soothing and I feel like this really leaves my skin smooth.

When I first tried the face wash, I didn't expect to love the rest of the range as much as I do. It might have been the pretty pink packaging that drew me in, but its the quality of the products that have really enthralled me. The combination of the extracts of rose and jasmine makes them really delicate, but if you think this makes them weaker in any sense, you would certainly be wrong.

Now L'Oreal, where's the Fine Flowers moisturiser?
