Rimmel #Insta Fix & Go | Essential Twenty

In the last month or two, Rimmel have launched their Insta Collection. I’ve been using the #Insta Fix & Go* setting spray for the past few weeks and after mentioning it once or twice, it’s finally time to give you my full opinion on it.

Review: The Philanthropist

The Philanthropist | Essential Twenty

Oh look, I’ve managed to spend another weekend in London at the theatre. Whilst thousands of people took to the West End on Saturday to celebrate Pride, I headed to the theatre to see two clothes that are closing pretty soon. The two shows I’m going to be talking about next were not seen in this order, but it seemed daft to let you know my thoughts on a show that closes in under two weeks when it has less than a week left of its run.

Bioderma Micellar Water | Essential Twenty

When I got into the world of beauty around three years ago, every single YouTuber raved about this fairly new concept of micellar water. And everyone’s favourite? Bioderma. I feel like this is the first micellar water that everybody talked about and whilst I used it a couple of years ago, I didn’t really get the chance to form a real opinion on it. Well now I think I finally know how I feel about Bioderma so I’m going to share those thoughts today.
