Changing your eyelash curler pads, Sasa Haul and update on Boots Botanics eye makeup remover

Okay so it's pretty much common sense when to change the silicone pad on your eyelash curlers, but here we go anyway.....

This is my 'Mister mascara' eyelash curler that you can get from any of the big Boots stores.

Personally, I think it's quite a decent eyelash curler but it isn't the right shape for my eyes because it's hard to get a full curl, but the pros are that you get a LOT of spare pads!
After a while of using your curlers you might start to notice slight tugging on your eyelashes. This is because the pad has become worn and your lashes are getting caught in the dent that you've made in it! Make sure you regularly clean your curlers to get rid of any build up of eyeliner/mascara which can make it sticky.
To change the pad you just remove the worn one and pop in a brand new one :)
Many eye lash curlers will come with a spare pad, or others you have to buy refills separately.

I have come across some that do not sell refills so you just have to buy a whole new curler :/
It is recommended that you change the pad after 3 months for hygiene reasons, but I guess if you keep it clean and it isn't causing any discomfort then you could possibly keep it for longer.
But after you've changed the silicone pad you might notice that you get a much better curl!

I've just picked out a few of my favourites to show here and I managed to use the eyeliner and mascara guard.
The Nairs eyeliner is really good! It's sweat and waterproof so the staying power is super. I'm currently obsessed with pen shaped liquid liners as it makes the application much easier as it's like drawing with a pencil! You might need to give an extra lil scrub when getting it off though, but make sure you're gentle with your eyes.
I highly recommend
the Mascara guard! It helps you apply the mascara without tugging and smudging, and the fact that it's made out of plastic make it easy to clean after. Also there's a lash comb built in at the bottom so after you've applied your mascara, you can just turn it upside down and comb through them to get rid of any clumps~
I'm in LOVE with Be Creation stuff, they stock such cute deco pieces which I couldn't resist and they do amazing eyelashes! The eyelash box that came with the Chocolate lashes is so cute! And if you get bored of it you can always decorate it with silicone :)
And I finally managed to get my hands on the Danya hair magic sheets/clips!
I have yet to try the Be creation lash applicator, Kai eyelash curler - for short lashes (in place of my current one), Love bath hair dry cap (much better than drying your hair out with the hair drier all the time!), and the oil blotting sheets (which I will do a review on them later on)
I use to use the Body Shop Oil blotting sheets but I found that it only got rid of so much shine, even blotting powder get rid of more! So I'll be testing all the oil blotting sheets I can find! ^^
Update on the Boots Botanics eye makeup remover~

I think the oiliness is getting a bit much now, I think I do prefer the more water based eye makeup removers so I might not re-buy it.
Because I have to use it and then make up wipes to get rid of the excess oil.
All in all I'd recommend this for dry skin types that would benefit from the extra moisturizers :)

P.S. Feel free to ask any relevant questions or request any reviews in comments/in the side comment box->
I will try my best to answer and do any reviews.

Coming soon..... introduction of the 2 other fashion bloggers!
