Innisfree Bamboo overnight mask

 follow-me-on-social-media

Hey, guys, it’s time for another review. Wow I know I’m on a roll! So a while ago I did a massive Innisfree hall. I’ve been playing around with what I got for a while. Instead of reviewing them as a whole I thought it would be better to review them on there own since they are all so different.

So today’s review is on the Innisfree bamboo overnight mask! This mask is enriched with bamboo and other naturally sourced ingredients.

This mask is meant to be a soothing yet mosit3erisng mask that helps nourish the skin overnight.

Application
To apply the facemask is super easy just use your fingers. It comes in a little tub in gel form so it applies super easy and it is super refreshing. Just make sure you have washed your face and cleaned your hands. 

Texture
The texture of the gel is similar to aloe vera gel, very watery and goopy. On your face, you don’t really feel anything since it is so quickly absorbed.

Smell
This one had a really sweet smell, not like bamboo at all which was pretty odd. It was strong at first but it did calm down over time.

Packaging
I love the little pots they are so easy to carry around and they are mess free. The best part about them is that they are recyclable! I also like how you can reseal them to keep the mask fresh!

Results
When I woke up my I admittedly almost forgot to wash it off since it felt like there was nothing there. At first, before washing my skin felt dry and crusty but I guess that would have been the mask. After washing my face my skin felt so soft. It didn’t look any different but it felt different. I did find that my makeup seemed to sit better on my skin since it was so moisturised. Its a win for me.

Price
Coming in at $3 it is so damn worth it! They may look small but they last for 4-5 applications. You can get it here.

That’s all from me.

Kracie Hanabisei Adult Acne Care Facemask

 follow-me-on-social-media

 
Hey, guys guess what an actual review! I know weird right. Today I’ll be talking about the Kracie Hanabisei Adult Acne Care Facemask.

The Kracie Hanabisei Adult Acne Care Facemask is made for adult acne care and aims to help prevents recurring adult acne breakouts and acne scars. This mask is formulated with Vitamin C for brightening, Glycyrrhizin for anti-inflammatory properties, green tea extract and collagen for moisturising and lemon to help speed up skin cell turnover. Wow, so much good stuff!

Application
I found this sheet mask super easy to apply. The sheet itself was thicker than normal sheet masks which I really like. I personally have a lot of trouble with sheet masks I always rip them when I unfold them but with this being thicker it was way easier. It’s also really big so it reaches every part of your face. This one reached right under my chin and parts of my neck which I found super cool! So you can leave it on for 5-15 minutes or 20 if you have really dry skin. I decided to do the full 20 because I always choose the longest recommended time for sheet masks.

Smell
It had a lovely fruity smell. I found the smell whilst strong was very relaxing. Almost like aromatherapy

Results
This mask suggests that it will help with acne and brighten your skin. So when I took it off my skin had not changed at all which I was kind of sad. Since my skin can be quite red some sheet masks work straight away, however, the next day I woke up and my skin looked great. It felt hydrated. Any little acne spots I had were not as red as before and my skin was glowing.

Price
Coming in at $16.00 You can get it here.

Overall
I really liked this facemask. The smell almost doubled as an aromatherapy for me and the results were great! I loved waking up to the results the next day and what got me the most was how the fabric of the sheet mask was thicker than normal. I think this is a real winner guys! 

That’s all from me

There is nothing worse then having ultra dry skin but never fear I have found the cure!

follow-me-on-social-media                                         

There is nothing worse than dry skin. Fun fact 71% of Australian women suggest that their biggest issue with their skin is the fact that it is dry. Jergens Ultra Healing extra dry skin moisturiser! This moisturiser is enriched with vitamins C, E and B5. its made to penetrate through 5 layers of the skin’s surface to repair, heal and deeply nourish extra dry skin.

They recommend that it is best used for elbows, heels, knees and feet. For me my feet are needing some loving.

Application
When I applied it I was surprised. was quite thick I wouldn’t say greasy just quite thick which is a good thing since it absorbs fast and is meant for dry skin. It removes the need to apply to much which is a good thing since nothing works well when applied in excess!

Smell

I really like the smell of this moisturiser. It almost smells like baby powder. It’s a really nice smell. It’s very relaxing. There’s something about that baby powder smell!

Price
This beautiful moisturiser costs a mouthwatering $7.79 at Priceline for 650 Mls which is AMAZING. You can get it here. 

Overall
If you have dry skin the Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Moisturiser is the place to start! Not only does it absorb fast but it works quick well. After about an hour my feet felt super soft! I found that they stayed soft for about 2-3 days without using it. I recommend to use it every night to get those baby soft feet!

What’s your secret to dry skin?

The Ultimate Acne Hiding Products

follow-me-on-social-media                                         

Before I start I just want to give a shout out to Hannah from byhannahlouise.com Her blog is all about lifestyle and her worldly travels! I especially love to read about where she is in the world since I have always wanted to travel. 

Anywho onto today’s post!

If your skin is anything like mine was I know the embarrassment and all the effort it takes to hide those pesky red lumps to feel good about yourself.

I’m not saying acne is something to feel bad about but let’s be real here. Everyone wants to feel good about themselves and it’s the little things they notice on each other that makes them feel insecure. For me, it was and still is my adult acne. Whilst my acne is gone I still have red pigmentation that I still feel embarrassed about.

I have tried countless products both expensive and cheap but have found that these two items are all you need! And what makes it even better is that they are from E.L.F Cosmetics.

This post is going to be a little different compared to how I usually review things but trust me unless you want a massive post this is the best way to do it so bear with me!

What I like to use are these two products. The E.L.F Cosmetics colour corrector and the E.L.F Cosmetics stick concealer. Green actually helps counterbalance the appearance of redness and no don’t worry you won’t have green skin!

Let’s start with the colour corrector stick. This green stick comes in the form of a cream. You apply it under concealer and foundation to the parts of your face that are red. You don’t need much and I recommend applying it and blending it out. It won’t look like it’s doing much other than making your face green but trust me. It helps! after that, you can either apply your usual foundation or if you are wanting a more natural look or like I am lazy sometimes, you can apply concealer.

So on the days that I don’t feel like or have time to apply foundation I like to wear a little bit of concealer. I have two shades. One that is my skin tone and one that is lighter. When I wear foundation I use the one that is lighter but when I wear concealer only then I use the one that matches my skin tone.

So once I have applied my colour correction and blended it out I like to apply my concealer on top. I like this concealer because it is very thick and covers well however it is hard to blend out!

Once you have blended out you can’t see the green anymore and there will be no red showing through!

As you can see from the top image which has been blended out with the colour corrector and the concealer and the second image with nothing on my hand that it blends out well. I do have. A slight bruise on my hand and it’s been covered well and you can’t really tell that there’s makeup on!

What’s your acne hiding hack?

That’s all from me!

The Cutest Japanese Lipbalm

For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with all things Japanese. I love their culture, their food and their values. Despite my deep love for Japan I have never actually tried any Japanese cosmetics which now that I think about it is kind of silly. I mean my other love is beauty so why did I not think to combine the two in the past? Well, I did and I tell you what I do not regret it! 

Canmake is a cute Japanese cosmetic company! They make the cutest looking products that are actually really good! I find that Japanese beauty focuses more on the natural side with lots of pinks, peaches and shimmers to naturally enhance your features. I tried the Canmake stay-on balm.

Canmake Stay-on Balm
With the Canmake stay-on balm being my first experience into Japanese beauty I have to say I found it very unique. It’s a lip balm that is pigmented. Unlike most western pigmented lip balms that have a slight barely noticeable colour that fades super fast, the can make stay-on blam is very pigmented!

Not only does it provide much-needed moisture and UV protection to lips (which is a must) but it allows for that beautiful makeup finish. I like how its essential skincare or should I say lip care that’s makeup!

Packaging
Let’s talk about their packaging. UHG IT IS SO CUTE. I love the fact that it’s so bright and happy with a beautiful floral pattern that reflects each shade. Unlike western products which focus more on a sleek luxury packaging, I like how this packaging has its own cute personality!

The lip balm itself comes in the classic wind up, cream bullet for easy application. I prefer when lip balms come in a cream bullet form rather than in a pot or the squeezy applicators. I find this way I won’t apply too much. 

Smell
I was really surprised that this lip balm had no smell. Looking so bright and colourful I just assumed that it would have a strong smell but I was wrong! I sort of have mixed feelings about products that have smells. I personally prefer if they don’t have any smell but if they have a slight smell that’s okay. I feel as if products that have no smell work better. Why do I think that I’m not sure? 

Shades
What really surprised me is how many shades that there were. There are 9 beautiful shades mainly in the pink/peach spectrum but there are a few purple-pink colours. The shade that I have is flowery princess which might I just add what a cute name! Most of the names are floral related and I think that is super cute.

Price
How much do you think that Japanese cosmetics would be? I personally assumed that they would be quite expensive but I was surprisingly wrong. I got this though W cosmetics which is a lovely store that is both online and Located in Brisbane that stocks all the best Japanese and Korean beauty brands!

Not only do they have a wide range, they are super affordable. This lip balm was only $15AUD which is so cheap! For the quality of it, I was blown away! You can get it here. 

Results
The results of this lip blam are breathtaking. Not only is the colour AMAZING but they instantly make my lips feel soft. I also really like how they give your lips a slightly glossy shine which I think make my lips look plumper.

What made me giggle was on the W cosmetics website, under the description it says that this lip balm will satisfie even the most demanding women and I can certainly say it would! It has so many natural ingredients that are amazing for you like jojoba oil, olive oil, rosehip oil, grapeseed oil, macadamia nut oil, pomegranate oil. 

I seriously recommend you give this a go! I give this a 5/5.

That’s all from me.

Is This The Best Micellar Water?


Micellar water is my favourite thing right now. Not only is it amazing at removing makeup but I like the fresh feeling it gives my skin! I do however hate micellar water that smells chemically or is too strong which many on the market nowadays are like. I have only had luck with two and let me tell you the Avene micellar water is my favourite!

img_4859

What actually is micellar water?
Micellar water is made up of little particles called micelles which are tiny balls of cleansing oils.  They are attracted to oil and dirt and work like a magnet to pull gunk from your pores. Since the balls are suspended in distilled water they are strong enough to pull out dirt and oil from your skin, but they are diluted enough not to affect the natural oils that your face needs to stay soft.

What makes Avene’s so different?
Avene’s micellar water is formulated to not only remove dirt and oil from your skin but to be calming and gentle on the skin. If you have sensitive skin this is a must. Since most of Avene’s products use thermal water, it really helps to soothe the skin. If you are like me and sometimes suffer from super red irritated skin anything soothing is a godsend. 

What skin type is this for?
The Avene micellar water is best for people with oily yet sensitive skin (MEEEE) however, it can be used on everyone. I do recommend doing a patch test just to make sure!

Packaging
I love all of Avene’s packaging. It’s so simple yet elegant. Like all micellar water, it comes in a clear bottle with the pop lid for easy access and dispenses

img_4860

Application
As with most micellar water it is recommended to use cotton pads however I find micellar water works best for me by using my hands (clean hands of course!) and just tapping the water onto my face. I like to do this before cleansing since I feel like them micellar helps to break down the particles of dirt and makeup in my face. You don’t need to rinse the micellar water off making it super easy to use!

Smell
The smell of this is just beautiful. It almost smells like baby powder which makes me feel as if I’m soft and clean. I think the smell is very soothing.

Price
Coming in at $24.99 for 400ml that is a bargain. Let me tell you now, you won’t be running out any time soon. You can get it here.

Results
This micellar water leaves your skin feeling fresh clean and soft. I really like how you can see your makeup slowly dissolving when you apply this. Not only does it look cool, but it makes it feel like its really working. Do you guys get like that with products you can see doing something or is it just me?

Overall
Yasss

I have been a massive fan of micellar water for years. It is just so easy to use and so effective. There are so many different brands on the market, but if you are like me and have oily yet sensitive skin you know the struggles! This has been a godsend and has helped me so much by controlling my oils and even preventing breakouts. I give this a 5/5!

Let me know if you have tried this in the comments!

That’s all from me.

GET IT OFF- Neutrogena Deep Clean Micellar water and Towelettes

The one thing I hate the most is….

Who doesn’t love Micellar water? It’s been around for years but I feel like its only become big in the last 3 or 4 years. It can get a little annoying to travel with though! The bottles are sometimes massive which is good for at home use but a pain to bring anywhere! Neutrogena have sent me via pr not only a nice big old bottle of their Micellar water, but they also sent me Micellar Towelettes! 

img_4799

What is it
The Neutrogena Deep Clean Purifying Micellar Towelettes and Micellar water are powered by Triple Micellar Technology which combines three gentle cleansers that work together to help remove makeup, cleanse and purify skin without being harsh to the skin!

What does it do
The Micellar water and the towelettes effectively remove makeup while gently cleansing and purifying skin. The face wipes are a gentle and ultra-soft face that provides a deep clean! The Micellar water is refreshing and quickly absorbed!

Packaging
I love the packaging of this whole range! Teal is one of my favourite colours and they look so cute in my bathroom! I like how the Micellar water packaging is quite thick. The Micellar wipes are packed in the classic makeup wipe package with a resealable opening to keep them fresh. 

Application
The Micellar water can be applied with a cotton pad which is recommended or by hand. I personally go for the good old clean hand since when I apply it this way I can feel it bubbling on my skin and I feel like it’s doing more. The Micellar wipes are basically just makeup wipes saturated in Micellar water which you pull out and rub all over your face. I like to use the wipes first and then the water!

Smell
They both have a slight fragrance that smells sweet and fresh!

Price
The Micellar Water is $14.99 and the Micellar Wipes are $7.99. That’s well worth it for clean skin! You can get it here

Results
I love how well these work together. I wear layers upon layers of makeup sometimes and it is just hell to get off but with this, my makeup slides off like a treat! 

Overall
Yasss
THIS IS A MUST IF YOU ARE A MAKEUP WEARER. I feel as if they would work good on their own but I think that using the wipes and the water together really gives you the full benefit of the micellar power. I mean at least there’s no makeup left on your skin what so ever hey! I give this a 4.5/5!

Do you guys use Micellar Water? Let me know in the comments!

That’s all from me.
