Random Haul #2

I know I haven't posted anything for well over a month but have done a bit of shopping in that time.  
The best thing about this time of year (other then Christmas day itself) is all the festive celebrations.  I went into Norwich to find the perfect party dress and found this beauty from tfnc London in Topshop.  This dress is quite short but with the high neck line I think it can still look classy, I also love the colour as I tend to wear a lot of black or dark purple on nights out.  I got this from Topshop for £42 but I can only find on tfnclondon.com and it doesn't appear to be in the same colour.
To go with the dress I picked up some navy platform shoes from Barratts I paid £15 but they are now £10. I didn't end up wearing them, as they are a sort of suede material and the night I went out it was pouring with rain. On the plus side I doubt that I would have been able to stay on my feet as long as I did, as they are not overly comfortable but look gorgeous.
At the beginning of December I went to Manchester to see Elbow as an early birthday present, for my boyfriend whilst there I popped into Selfridges and bought Laguna bronzer by Nars. I have been lusting after this for ages and decided to treat myself, I can't wait to try this out.
Another product I have been waiting to try out and recently bought is Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer.  I know many beauty bloggers have raved about this product so wanted to try for myself.  I picked up shade 2 Light from Boots for £4.19.
I also picked up Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturiser from Boots after watching some of missbudgetbeauty videos.  My chin has been very spotty recently and have tried numerous spot treatments so was hopeful that this would get rid of them.  I will let you know how I get on.
Lastly I picked up Super Facialist by Una Brennan Rose Hydrate Cleanser also from Boots.  I still love my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish but I get through a bottle a month and at £12.75 it would mean spending over £150 a year on cleanser which I just can't justify.  I am therefore testing out cheaper options.

Has anyone got any cleanser recommendations for me?
