Skin Care Product Reviews – Freederm Sensitive Facial Wash & Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash

Hello Everyone! I hope you are all having an excellent summer and are making the most of the little bit of sun we are having here in England! For my abroad readers, England is usually very rainy and cold but lately we have had such hot weather which is a lovely change!

I know I have not been blogging as much as I usually would and that’s because I have been rather busy and thus not had the time to blog as much but on the positive side that means I have more to blog about and reviews to post because it has been a while! yay 🙂

So I thought I would start with a skin care post about some items that I have recently brought and review the good and bad points of each of them. So lets start…

  1. Freederm Sensitive Facial Wash For Spot Prone Skin 150ml
    So when I brought this face wash I had very high expectations because I have always heard such good things about the brand Freederm. So I chose this face wash as I was having a bit of a spot issue! The wash itself is quite nice, definitely not thick in consistence or weight in hand and it also smooths easily over your face which is great.
    The face wash itself is pink and looks similar to the hair gel! This face wash is meant to control excess oil and also deeply cleanse pores, I think personally it does work quite well but it’s nothing much different from other facial washes sadly.
  2. Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash Skin Balancing Cleanser I actually got this face wash as a freebie with a magazine which I was happy about, it is a brand that is gaining more and more credibility so I was quite happy to get this freebie. The wash states for normal to combination skin and is 98.8% from natural origins which is great for the environment and very naturally healthy for your skin because there are more or less no chemicals or harmful substances in this face wash unlike many other brands. The actual ingredients of the face wash are spruce knot, rice bran oil, frankincense, ylang ylang and grapefruit which is quite a natural mixture of things.
    When I tried the wash for the first time it felt quite creamy and personally I hated the smell of it! But I still use it, I believe it works nicely on my skin and just rejuvenates my skin that bit more.

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 🙂
