My New Skincare Routine

I think I have found some real gems.

Aapri Scrub Cream - Slightly harsh grains but exfoliates well I use this twice a week.

Clean & Clear Cream Wash - I use this throughout the week one or twice a day. Nice fresh clean feeling.

Clinique Clarifying Lotion - Good exfoliant, brightens complexion. Very alcohol based and can sting your eyes. I use twice a day.

Garnier 2 in 1 Make up dissolver - Great make up remover, can be a bit messy, leaves skin insanely soft.

L'Occitane Ultra Rich Face Cream - Really moisturising, thick, night cream, doesn't sink in quickly. Great for dry skin.

The body shop seaweed mattifying day cream - really nice light day cream, keeps skin matt good for underneath foundation.

I really recommend these products as they work for my dry skin.

Hope you found this helpful.

My Skin.

So recently my skin just isn't the way I want it. I have very dry skin and when I was younger I had pimples and never took propler care of them that has left me with uneven skin on my forhead and scaring. I know that Egyptian Magic works for some people and the only other scar treatment I know is Bio oil, but the word oil freaks me out!

I have recently have tried out the Veet hair removal strips for your face as I hate plucking the skin in between my brows. Well I didn't heat the strips right or something so I basically ripped some skin off and it has just made it more uneven and broken and red so it really looks great :(

I use at the moment a peach scrub (not st.ives) and I use Clean and Clear deep cleaning cream for the night and I use my tea tree toner and L'occitaine ultra rich face cream (which I love!)

I hate that I have dry skin as my foundation and concealer looks bad when I put on foundation.

I am thinking of trying Clinique clarifying lotion but I don't know wether to get it for very dry to dry or dry combination skin. And I also wanted to try the makeup remover for eyes lashes and lips. I may in time get the dramatically different moisturiser.

But for now I just have to take better care of my skin :/

I hope I can

Photography Update

I was on Tumblr tonight and I saw something disgraceful! Girls who use fashion photographs to assist them of killing themselves. I knew this happened but I saw the scale of this tonight, with countless likes on skeletal models starving themselves.

I think this has just been a hugh wake up call and I will not support the fashion photography world, as glamorous and gorgeous as it is.

I will have no part in assisting a person kill their bodies.

And if there is a way, many years down the road I will change things if nothing has been done.

Ok I know I said I wasn't going to but...

I got stuff! :)

Magic Mushroom Bubble bar
Holy crap this smells great!! I love it so much!!

Charity pot sample
I really like this it's really moisturising but it's not sticky! It has a nice light scent, It's great and I will be buying this when I run out of all the other moisturisers I have :p

MAC Antiqued eyeshadow,
I really like this colour i love coppers I think they work really well with my blue eyes :)

MAC Studio Fix powder,
I really like this I wanted a powder foundation that I didn't have to think about.
I use it sparingly so I think it will last long.
I think it makes my skin look great!!

Looks normal right?....Wrong :P
They didn't glue it down, this has never happened to me before. It's not damaged so I just put some bluetac on the base :)

I love everything I got and it's FTC approved :)

Wow!! iheatcosmetics giveaway!

What a great giveaway!!

Enter Sarah's contest here!!!


Right so little update: Sorry for the lack of posts!! Im really busy.

So I have done 8/10 tests and I am going away after these tests I can't buy anything but I will be taking photos.

Im not buying anything until my birthday in June. I want to buy a graphics tablet and an iMac (way in the future) but I want to save money for summer and college, I have a fiver in the bank at the moment so I want that to change.

So the reason for this post is because I will be reviewing instead of showing you what I get.
Im also going to try to do more eye looks and FOTD's as I really like them.

So the first thing Im going to review is the Illamasqua nail varnish.
