If you've suffered with your skin then I'd hope that you'd relate to me on this: having had trouble with my skin, anything to do with cleansing my skin and especially my pores, really satisfies me and I can't be the only person that's so obsessed with the random isles in Aldi - you know the ones that sell the 'randomest' of things. I saw that Aldi were selling their own brand Hot Cloth Cleanser and I was so drawn in by it so I thought I'd give it a go and do a post on it and I really liked it. It's really simple to use and it aims to gently cleanse and exfoliate your skin feeling it smooth and soft after use and it definitely does that. Just to add aswell, if I have anyone vegan or vegetarian who anyone that prefers to use vegan products reading this then this is suitable for vegans and vegetarians and it's also cruelty free which is such a huge bonus. Aldi actually did a statement on their website a while back stating that "we are proud to say that all our label cosmetics, toiletries and household products are cruelty free certified by leading animal protection organisation, Cruelty Free International. If you are looking for more information on Cruelty Free Free International then you can click here. 

You only need to apply a small amount of the cleanser to dry skin and massage into your face and neck in circular motions and then wet the muslin cloth in hot water and wring it out to get rid of any excess water then place the cloth over four face and doesn't actually specify on the box how long to leave it on for, I left mine on for around 15 minutes to let it soak in and then remove the cloth, cleanse your face and then rinse with cold water (I loved this before it kinda warms your face slightly so it's really refreshing to rinse with the cold water) then pat dry your face with a towel. If you're intrigued at this like I was when I saw it then please check it out because I think it's a pretty decent find from myself. 

TESTING OUT LACURA'S ORIGINAL HOT CLOTH CLEANSER

SNIPPETS OF MY WEEK #2

THIS POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS
I have never looked after my skin more than I do now and I'm going to be very honest but I have never drank water consistently. I'd say pretty much for the last 4 years I've drank Pepsi Max throughout the day but then wondered why my skin is so bad? And I definitely don't want to be admitting how many I actually could drink in one day (eeek). So I suddenly one day really questioned it and I'm so glad I did. I tend to drink 3 litres of water now a day and my skin has never been better. I am kinda hoping that I'm not the only that has had done this but if you are doing this then please stop. We only have one body.  I have always suffered with my skin anyway because of my genetics but I have not looked after my skin properly at all and I'm so glad I have stopped doing this to my skin. What you put in definitely reflects on your skin and how you feel. 

Keeping products quite minimal is something that I have found has really helped my skin. Products which contain alcohol definitely flare up my skin, especially spot breakouts. If you suffering with your skin, if it's acne or redness then you will know that even drinking alcohol can effect your skin and I definitely notice this. Since discovering the Hydrating Cleanser by Cerave, I have noticed such a huge difference in the hydration of my skin and this really works!!! If you're suffering with dry skin then please try this because it has been an absolute life saver for me. 

Has anyone actually read up on what E45 is made to do? Because I definitely had never even thought to put E45 on my face but infact, E45 is designed as a treatment for dry/flaky skin, eczema, itchy skin, dry psoriasis and sunburn and I don't know about you but showers completly dry my skin out - I could drink a gallon of water a day but showers still dry my skin out so much, especially around my eyes but applying just a little dot around each eye has helped my dryness so much. 110% recommend. 

Acnecide is a brand of products that contain the active ingredient called benzoyl peroxide which effectively kills up to 95% of bacteria that causes spots and helps to hydrate your skin by releasing glycerine. I picked up the Acnecide Gel in my local pharmacy and I don't tend to use this every single day but I use it a few times a week and I have seen so many benefits to this product, definitely something to consider if you're looking to target those acne-prone areas. 

I have left a few useful links below if you wanted to read up more of anything I've spoken about in this post :)

Do I just call this a food blog now lol? 

This isn't going to be anything extraordinary, but if you're not doing this then why aren't you doing this? Since living on my own, I've found a lot of the meals I like tend to cause a lot of a mess and a lot of washing up which I hateeee doing. So I always use my leftovers for the next days on various different meals and this is a hack that I've been doing and loving for months now and I had to share it with you. This week I brought a vegetable based pizza out of the 'reduced isle' in my local shop and sprinkled some chicken from the drumsticks that were left over from the day before and there you have it, a perfect way to use your leftovers. 



PLEASE SAVE YOUR LEFTOVERS

 Hello and welcome back and welcome to 2022, I guess! What the ----. I realized that I haven't posted on this platform in over 2 years and do I have an actual reason? Apart from big-time procrastinating... No I do not. I've wanted to get back for the longest time but getting back has just been delayed so here I am. I'm back and I thought I would share with you my love for this meal that I have been having lately, which is fully inspired by Emily Mariko (I'm sure you know who she is). You can shop the saucepan I use here. 

1. The first thing you're going to want to do is start cooking your haddock (you could literally do this meal with absolutely anything you wanted) I cook mine for around 25-30 minutes and prepare pre-cook with sea salt. I buy the frozen batch from Morrisons (incredible if you live on your own or just cooking for one!).

2. Prepare a saucepan with enough water to boil your rice with (I use the Uncle Ben's portion for 1 bags and they're also incredible if you are living on your own and saves a lot of mes too. When the rice has around 20 minutes left, I start to bring the water to the boil as the Uncle Ben's rice bags only take 10 minutes to cook. 

3. When everything has cooked and plated up, you're going to want to get your mayonnaise, sriracha and soy sauce and lay them on top of the dish and (optionally) fork it all together and there you have a perfect and easy meal for one.
