End Of Sachet: Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Cucumber Peel-Off

I felt like I must have tried the whole Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven range until I went to their website and realised that I haven’t even scratched the surface. They do self heating masks, I need me some of that! Anyway this is the review of the Cucumber Peel-Off Mask. “We pulped cucumbers and juiced citrus goodness to give your skin a blast of freshness and help remove dirt and grime. Gently peel off this mask once a week to reveal a fresh and revived new you.” I love the blurb and all of the descriptions on the packaging as…

Why I Don’t Vlog

Honestly, there are a ┬ámillion reasons why I chose to blog rather than vlog and videos like this make me wonder why anybody does?! [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOt3RROF_cU[/youtube] We need them so this doesn’t happen to us! #vloggersoftheworld I take my invisible hat off to you!

End Of The Range Review: Boots Botanics

I have decided to take skin care a little more seriously as you may have seen by a couple of my facemask reviews here, here and here. But a facemask does not make a skin care routine, it is but one essential part. If you actually read the back of products they always say they are best used with other products within the same range and whether that’s true or not, in my newness to taking this seriously, I decided to buy a set of products from the same range, the Boots Botanics All Bright range to be precise. I…

End Of Sachet Review: 7th Heaven Strawberry Souffle Face Mask

I will start by telling you that I had high hopes for this mask. It sounds great, Strawberry Souffle, yum. It makes you think of strawberries obviously (high in vitamin C, acidic so helpful with scars and great for tightening pores – see here for more) but the souffle part had me thinking I might have a cheeky little lick of my upper lip while it dried. I didn’t, I promise, because this is not food but it does smell good enough to eat. It has an extremely thick consistency, like cream cheess almost. This makes applying it very easy…

Progress Check – June 2017

It’s that time of year for another little progress check. I suppose the first thing I need to say is that the hair is growing and I actually believe it. I think I spent the first few months of this journey in denial that anything was happening up top but I can see it, I believe it and I am starting to love it. I spent the last few months thinking that I would be my own natural hair meme and that the 5 in my pic above would be me on the fifth year hair anniversary sporting the same…

End Of Sachet Review: 7th Heaven Argan Oil Mud

So Sunday treat again. Face mask time!! This one had a bit of an odd smell to me. Maybe it was the Argan Oil but I wasn’t feeling it. It dried really quickly which was great because I wanted it off. It did tighten very quickly and I find that these creamy type masks do seem to do that, the ones from this range anyway. Argan Oil is great for softening skin and has a lot of Vitamin E in which is great for moisturising, I definitely need that. I have tried it in my hair but I don’t think…

End Of The Tube Review: Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Peel Off Face Mask

Sunday nights have become my Face Mask Night and I really look forward to it. I’m not one to primp and pamper myself but I am learning as time goes by that I need to do more for me. When I will fit all this in? I don’t know, but its needed. Every Sunday I spread whatever on my face and relax because what else can I do? I certainly can’t do housework – that’s a no no. Pick up children – well they’re in bed. Change nappies -nope it’s break time from that. Write my blog – I’m too…

End of Sachet Review: Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Dead Sea Mud Pac Mask

I think if you’ve walked into any shop that sells face masks in the UK, you will have seen this brand. The packaging always has pictures of women with about a 2 inch thick layer of a glorious looking face mask which looks rich, thick and creamy. Now it never comes out like that on your face and it would be a bit ridiculous if it did but it would be nice if the package was the reality. Do you hear me McDonald’s? With your lies and deceit. It would be nice if the finished product matched the pictures. I…

FACE

Yeesh! That’s one hell of a close up of my face. Don’t mind my unkempt eyebrows. I’m possibly growing them out or I’m just lazy and I haven’t fixed them yet, I haven’t decided. Anyway, I was feeling quite anxious about how to start this post and how to represent the problems I feel that I have. So to illustrate it to you I have to show you something that causes me daily angst. My face. My make-up free, whole screen, no filter face. I do posts pics with no make-up on but damn that is close up! They say…
