How Often Do Your Wash Your Beauty Blender?


We'll never forget that horrific video of a girl cutting open her Beauty Blender and finding little things crawling out, will we? Sorry to start with such a disgusting blast from the past but there's a lesson to be learnt. How often are you washing and replacing your Beauty Blender?

I’m Trying A Drink For Better Skin | Skincare



I recently won a competition on Instagram; a 90 day supply of Skinade which I've been wanting to try forever. 

Skinade is "a multi-award winning, natural peach and mangosteen flavoured anti-ageing collagen drink containing a patent pending formulation of active ingredients that aims to boost your body's natural production of collagen and hyaluronic acid".

When it comes to collagen drinks, I tried one before for around 6 months and I actually realised how good it was only when I stopped taking it. The only reason I stopped was because it smelt like fish food and I have the most sensitive taste buds. Yep, I'm quite a fussy eater and hate hate hate when people tell me to try it when it comes to food.

Rice Water For Hair Growth?

I love trying a DIY beauty treatment and have been meaning to try the rice water trick since last year. What better time to try out a new beauty hack?

What does rice water do for your hair?

Rice water is the starchy water leftover after rice is cooked or left to soak. It's thought to make hair smoother, shinier and promotes hair growth.

I Bought This Serum After Watching Huda Beauty's YouTube Video


If you read my blog post on microneedling, you would have saw I mentioned a new skincare product I'll be adding to my skincare routine alongside microneedling. That is the Institut Esthederm E.V.E (Essential Vital Elements) Serum.

I was watching Huda Beauty's YouTube video on 'How to get rid of acne scars' where she mentioned the Institut Esthederm E.V.E Serum and called it the 'best thing I have ever tried'. I was sold at that moment. Yup, that's all it took. 

Anyway... so why did she call it the best thing she has ever used?

I Tried Microneedling | Skincare



Having watched Huda Beauty's YouTube videos, I knew a little bit about microneedling but not as much as I know now after getting my hands on the BeautyLab Titanium Microneedle Roller*

So what is a microneedle roller? 

A microneedle roller is also known as a 'dermaroller'. It's a facial tool with lots of titanium needles (0.3mm).

What does it do?

The longer the needles, the more effect it's going to have. There are different types of needle lengths available, I have the 0.3mm which is safe to use at-home however professionals would use a needle up to 1.5mm because they are qualified to do so without damaging your skin.

5 Fruits To Improve Your Skin | Skincare

When it comes to skincare I am no expert however I have learnt things about my skin along the way of dealing with mild acne. For me, diet plays a very important role in my skincare routine. Products do offer added benefits to my skin however, I have found what I eat and drink benefits my skin a lot more. 

During 'quarantine' season, it's extremely difficult to eat clean and not raid the snack cupboard. I'm not going to lie, the snack cupboard is my favourite kitchen cupboard and I treat myself a lot more than I should especially during that time of the month. However, you need to have a good balance and really try your hardest in order to come out glowing for summer, autumn, winter, next year? Who knows.

Here are some of the fruits I've been eating and why you should add them to your shopping list...


How Old Are Your Makeup Products?



If you think you're slowly starting to lose your shit, don't worry you're not alone. Whether it's week two or three of 'quarantine season', almost everyone is feeling the same. The most important thing you can do other than #StayHome is #StayBusy. 

One thing that has been keeping me busy the past couple of weeks is 'spring cleaning' my beauty drawers and cupboards. I've been putting it off forever simply because it took me forever, but boy were the benefits so worth it in the end. We're all guilty of keeping beauty products longer than their expiry dates, we wouldn't keep food past it's best before date, so why do we think it's okay to do it with beauty?

Stop what you're doing, go and check out the expiry date on your makeup products...and then order new product to replace them. You'll instantly feel a lot better, not sure I can say the same about your bank balance.
