Ebay Buys #1

Hello everyone!

I noticed the other day that I buy a lot of things off of Ebay, so I'm going to do a little post here and there of the things I've bought! The thing I love the most about Ebay is that you can find really good products and items for pretty cheap sometimes. The other day while having a bored moment, I was browsing and next thing I remember is pushing the pay button for this clutch purse!

This is the Leather Fashion Clutch, which I bought for £4.49 and the postage was free as I am within the UK. I almost picked the pink or purple one as they caught my eye, but the colour for this one just grabbed my attention first so I chose this one.





It is fake leather, but the quality feels so good that you couldn't tell this was cheap! It has 8 card slots, a zipper pocket for your change and the middle section is just the right size to slot your phone into. That was the reason I bought this - so I didn't need a huge bag!

I'm really pleased with this and I am itching to get it in another colour! Have you found any good buys on Ebay? Hope you have a good day and keep safe :)

Disney Makeover | Belle

Hello everyone!

I've recently had an influx of love for Disney, probably started by me planning a Disney World holiday in three years! I've had a lot of time spare recently, so have been watching some of the movies and listening to the soundtracks.

Little disclaimer: No this isn't an original idea and I know a lot of people do this. I am not trying to copy anyone in particular, I just like the posts I have seen!

Simple Purifying Cleansing Lotion Review | Beauty

Hello everyone!

I am currently on a spending ban, but I still have products to review which I bought before the ban began! Simple is one of my favourite brands for skin care as I've never had a problem with anything I have tried from them. I saw this in Morrisons the other day for £2.99 and had to give it a try.

The product is scentless, which I something I liked about it straight away. With most cleansing lotions, you apply this to a cotton pad and then wipe it around your face where you wish and then you are done. No washing it off!



I do like this, but I prefer cleansing lotions that are a water consistency, such as Micellar Water and the Clean & Clear brand ones. This was like a very thin cream, which still worked fine, but I found I had to use a little more than I thought to get the desired effect. It did however leave my face feeling soft and clean, which is what I was hoping it would do.

I will still use this until it is empty, but I don't see myself re-purchasing it as it's not quite what I was after! Have you tried this at all? Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review

Hello everyone!

A couple of months ago the blogosphere went crazy for this new Micellar Water that seemed to be the gospel of beauty in all the reviews that I read! It was almost £5 everywhere that I looked for it, or even worse it was out of stock! However, about a month or so ago, I found it up at work, on offer and along with my discount, I managed to get it for £3.32.




I'm quite pleased with it and it does seem to live up to the hype! I used to be the person who slept in her makeup and only used makeup wipes when bothered, but this has made me actually take the makeup off before bed! Most times I only need to use one cotton pad and a few drops of this to get all the products off my faces, sometimes I need two. I don't wear a lot of makeup anyway, but for nights out I do wear that little bit more that needs a bit more attention when taking it back off.

I've found no problems with it. There is no scent which I am thankful for and does the job I need it to. I know some people don't like it, but then again it might not be for everyone. Since buying this, I've forgot to take my makeup off maybe two or three times, and I've noticed I have a lot less blotchy marks of a morning now. I will definitely buy this again once it's used up.

Have you used this and do you like it? Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Morrisons Fruity Dry Shampoo Review

Hello everyone!

As you may know, I work at a supermarket called Morrisons here in the UK! Usually after I finish my shift, I venture into the beauty section to see what I can discover for cheap on offer, or just to try something new. I tend to buy new products from work as I get staff discount, so it is a little bit cheaper!

I'm not a huge hair care person so I use minimal products in my locks just so it is never weighed down too much. However, some mornings when I don't have time for a shower and my hair isn't at it's best - dry shampoo has been a lifesaver. I've used a few different brands of this product a couple of years ago, but never really got on with it. I bought this one from work one day on a whim and it sat on my cabinet for about a month before I used it.



When I finally did use it, I was really pleased with it. The scent isn't my cup of tea, but I put that down to me being asthmatic and not being able to breath after I use this! My hair looked like it was freshly washed, had a little bit of bounce it in, and gave the roots and nice 'oomph'. This was £2.20 I think (I lost the receipt)! I will definitely buy this again soon because I've almost finished the can.

Do you have any dry shampoos that might be good? Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Playboy: Play It Lovely Perfume Review & 200th Post!

Hello everyone!

First of all, this is my 200th post on Beautiful Avenger! About 30 of those were before I began using this blog properly, but 200 is amazing! I've actually committed to something :) Anyway...

If you didn't already know, my fave brand for perfumes is Playboy. I'm a devout user of their Play It Rock perfume, which has been my fave perfume for the past six years. They used to have a load more that I tried and liked, but I can't remember the names of them. The other day while buying my Play It Rock off of Fragrance Direct, I decided to get another Playboy one that I had yet to try and this is what I chose.


Playboy Play It Lovely comes in a beautiful light pink box, which has a quilted texture to the box. This is the 50ml bottle, with the usual bunny ears bottle top design as the other perfumes. The perfume is clear, except it has a slight pink tint to it. The usual RRP is £12.95 but I bought it for £5.99. Bargain! Here is my terrible description of the scent ~ It is flowery with a slight 'spicy' hint to it... Not helpful at all, but it has a nice lasting scent and I only had to put it on twice in a day for it to last.

What is your fave perfume and perfume brand? Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion Review

Hello everyone!


A while back I was recommended this product from my supervisor at work as an option to help whatever the red blotchy mark on my left arm is! I've had the mark for three years and it's been getting better the past couple of weeks (yay) but is still a bit itchy. My supervisor told me that this is a pretty good lotion for eczema. She was right! Whenever it has itched a lot recently, I've put some of this one, and it has soothed it pretty quick. I only use about a 10p coin sized blob of it at a time, so I have loads left.

It usually retails to about £6, so is pretty pricey, but I bought it when it was on offer for £4. It is scentless and a reasonable consistency. It's not really watery like other products I have tried, which I like! It leaves the skin feeling nice and smooth and soft afterwards, which is a bonus!


I'm not sure if I would buy it again unless it is on offer, but I've still got way over half of the tube left to use up. Have you tried this or anything similar? Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Disney Makeover | Cinderella

Hello everyone!

I've recently had an influx of love for Disney, probably started by me planning a Disney World holiday in three years! I've had a lot of time spare recently, so have been watching some of the movies and listening to the soundtracks. Last week I chose Snow White, and this week it is time for Cinderella! I've decided not to do a makeup section this time, but include it in the main outfit picture this week!

Little disclaimer: No this isn't an original idea and I know a lot of people do this. I am not trying to copy anyone in particular, I just like the posts I have seen!
