T-Zone Deep Cleansing 4 in 1 Invigorating Cooling Scrub With Tea Tree, Menthol & Orange Extract

So I thought that I would try this T-Zone 4 in 1 scrub that I found out shopping, it was half price so I thought I’d give it a go. So how would I rate this product? I love it! It doesn’t make my troublesome skin automatically disappear when I need it too but it smells wonderful and if you love the smell of orange you’ll love this scrub!

The exfoliating beads are not rough like many other scrubs and the formula is not too thick nor too runny so it seems a good balance in consistency. It’s deep cleansing and naturally anti bacterial which is always a bonus but I know with many of these products that contain salicylic acid or tea tree that many people worry their skin will dry out which of course is a possibility and believe me its happened to me before as well but its all about finding a great product that contains these ingredients but which doesn’t dry your skin out, or what I do sometimes if I like a product but it dries my skin out is to moisturize afterwards with some hydrating cream! 🙂

Overall I do like this scrub as it smells nice and its refreshing as well once applied!

Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamin & Extracts Scrub (Avocado and Pomegranate)

Lately my skin has not been amazingly great, due to the fact I probably haven’t ate very good foods to promote healthy skin (That’ll all change though!) and I have felt a little stressed as well so my skin has suffered naturally promoting spots 😦 So when I was in Superdrug the other day I picked up Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamin & Extracts Scrub (Avocado and Pomegranate) in the hope that it would revive my skin a little!

This scrub apparently contains vitamins like vitamin E and contains avocado and pomegranate extracts which promote healthier skin with the aid of anti oxidants and exfoliating beads. The formula itself is quite thick in consistency but is not hard to rub in, I was super excited to use this product but sadly it has had no prevail to my skin, I have been using it for just about a week and have not seen much improvement, but perhaps I am hoping this is due to the fact I need to use it a little longer so I will keep on using it and see how it goes 🙂

The scrub itself smells delicious and I love the Clearasil brand as I believe in their promises and aims (Not sure why?! They just seem more reliable) but this product does not seem to be as powerful as their usual stuff which is kind of a down point. However overall I do still love this product regardless and will continue to give it a second chance 🙂

Best Foundation & Mascara I Have Ever Brought Review!

Okay so for a long time I stopped wearing foundation simply because I just couldn’t put up with trying to constantly find a shade that matched my skin tone, I am very pale and searching for the perfect foundation for me is a pain! If I buy the wrong one I can end up looking orange and I myself prefer the natural look  and I go for liquid foundation because I find it more better personally for me, so I have always searched for a foundation that ticks all my boxes:

  • Natural looking coverage
  • Covers spots efficiently
  • Covers dark under eye circles
  • Not too thick
  • Closest shade to my skin tone
  • Not to expensive

So like many girls I find looking for foundation tiresome and something which I gave up on a few months back, I have only really been using cover sticks and light powder. But the other day I was in Boots and I decided to give this new foundation I saw a go, It’s called On The Spot Foundation by Seventeen and it apparently gives you clearer skin in 4 weeks!

Now sometimes when I get very under the weather or stressed like many I tend to get spots and I hate them, but this foundation apparently gives clearer skin in 4 weeks which was a definite selling point for me. Not to mention they did a very light fair pale colour which when I tested it, it matched my skin tone perfectly! –  SUCCESS. It wasn’t thick and when I applied it, it rubbed in perfectly and gave me and all round clear and fresh complexion plus it was cheap in regards of pricing at only £5.

Also I managed to find probably the most effective mascara I have used in a long time! It is called Scandal Eyes By Rimmel and I love it. The brush is big and thick but not too large that it makes application hard. You don’t even need to use more than one mascara when using this as it gives lashes a big impact look and my eyelashes look super long (Mine are naturally tiny) so this is a recommended buy!

Style Hot Spot: IBIZA

I went to Ibiza for my 16th birthday but it wasn’t a generic ‘lets go party my life away’ holiday it was a beautiful family holiday and my 16th birthday present from my parents! Ibiza is such a beautiful island, really unforgettable, if you haven’t visited then go! There is something for everyone whether you want to party or just relax.

So it got me thinking about holiday fashion, specifically fashion in Ibiza and what I wore when I went and things. Something that I thought of was the fashion style that people adapt while they go away for example someone who usually wears jeans and baggy tops everyday will change when they go on holiday and you’ll see them in long brightly coloured maxi dresses and such and I love the contrast and adaption people take on – Even I do it! So I thought I would do a little fashion hot spot post about fashion in Ibiza because the styles and varieties of clothing are so broad and creative, So if you go to Ibiza check out a few of these outfits to get ideas!

Bright colours is what it’s all about and in Ibiza everyone loves vibrant and bold outfits, contrasting tones of outfits as well is something that makes a great statement for example mixing a black skirt with a burnt orange vest could make the style statement of the year you never know till you dare to mix and match! Shorts, heels, long maxi dresses, cut out vests and denim jackets seem to always be holiday favourites so why not give them a go yourself? Just don’t wear your heels on the beach! But then that is common sense haha 🙂

Liquid Eyeliner Vs. Pencil Eyeliner?

Make up – We all love it, hate it, wear it, try it, have loads of it or none of it! So I was taking a look through my make up bag and decided that I was going to do a post on the Pro’s and Con’s of both liquid eyeliner and pencil eyeliner because it seems people prefer one or the other! Hope you enjoy 🙂

LIQUID EYELINER

Pro’s:

  • Some people find it very easy to apply.
  • The brush is thinner making it very precise.
  • It stands out much more compared to pencil.
  • Liquid is sometimes easier to get off when your taking your make up off.
  • Tends to last longer compared to pencil eyeliner.

Con’s:

  • Others tend to find it much harder to apply thus making a mess over their eyelids and such.
  • It can sometimes run into your eye if you do it to close the the corners or if you do it wrong.
  • It can be hard to master ‘the flick’.
  • Smudges very easily especially if you do not let it dry completely.

PENCIL EYELINER

Pro’s:

  • Gives a more natural softer look.
  • Some make up lovers say it is easier to apply.
  • Lasts longer than other eyeliners with regards to shelf life.
  • Doesn’t dry out.

Con’s:

  • You have to sharpen the pencil every so often.
  • It can sometimes hurt during the application process on the eyelid if the pencil is too sharp or too blunt.
  • It wears off and does not last as long as liquid eyeliner.
  • Can be affected by heat and cause a smudging effect around the eyelids.

So I hope this helps somewhat for anyone looking for some advice about pencil or liquid eyeliner, at the end of the day it is narrowed down to personal preference and choice.
