Skincare On A Budget

Sometimes it's nice to splash out on some skincare products. However, sometimes these hyped up overly priced products aren't even that good. (i'm looking at you Pixi!). Considering how often we use skincare products we work are way through them pretty quickly and have to stock back up often. Think back to the past couple of months alone and think how much you've spent on expensive skincare.
 There is so many budget/drugstore skincare products out there that are just as good or even better and i'm going to breakdown a few of my favourites. Before I begin please bare in mind that I use products suitable for my skin type. This doesn't necessarily mean it will be suitable for yours. I have combination skin more on the dry side and occasional acne breakouts. 
Cleanser -Simple cleansing oil (£3.45) 
For the past couple of months I have been using the simple cleansing oil. This stuff has been really effective so far. This product is great at removing stubborn makeup, …

Better Than Sex? - Too Faced Mascara Review

Can a piece of makeup really be better than sex? Well, that's the big claim that too faced have titled and slapped on their mascara. For a mascara with statement like this right their on it's packaging it makes me wonder, is too faced really that confident in their makeup or are they just arrogant enough to believe it's that great. Let's be honest that's a pretty out there title for a mascara after all. 


So, I actually got the mini version of the better than sex mascara as part of their too faced and Kat Von D 'better together' mascara and liner set. For the sake of this review I will be focusing only on the mascara. However, Kat Von D haul coming soon! This set cost me £18. For a mini mascara on it's own it's around £10 and for the full size £19. There is also a waterproof version of the product available. When you read the information on this product...actually i'll just leave the info they provide here...

I'm getting a very over the top,…

Activated Charcoal - The Best Tooth-Whitening Product Ever?!

Cast your mind back a couple of months ago when I tried the blanx white shock teeth whitening kit. (Read here if you're interested). Quick update, That product was an absolute flop! After months of continually using it there was very minimal differences. So, Still searching for a teeth whitening product to try out I came across this..Activated charcoal! 
First of all just a little breakdown of what it actually is. Activated charcoal has been used for centuries as a natural treatment for many things. From medical treatments such as flushing deadly toxins like poisons and alcohol out of your system to beauty treatments that can remove bacteria and spots from the skin due to its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. However, activated charcoal has been used as a teeth whitener since the times of the ancient Greeks and Egyptians. There was obviously no such thing as toothpaste back then so the wealthiest people would use activated charcoal to care for their teeth. Not only does …

Metallic Blue Glamglow Gravity Mud ft Sonic! - Review (Limited Edition Product)

It's been a while since I reviewed a face mask and I don't think I could have picked a better one to write about! A couple of months back you may have seen some of the most popular bloggers and youtubers received Glamglow gravity mud in the limited sonic the hedgehog edition. Unfortunately, this product was not made to sell to the public but now they have brought them out in 15g tubes for £14. This, of course, was always going to happen. Considering so many bloggers and youtubers promoted it of course viewers wanted to try it. It's a very sneaky sales tactic but we weren't all born yesterday...So, I wanna see if this is worth the hype or if it's just a cheap gimmick.



Let's start with a bit of info on the product. This is glamglows normal gravity mud but it's tinted metallic blue. The original is silver. The reason it is bright blue is to pay homage to the iconic video game character sonic the hedgehog created by SEGA games who have paired up to create this…

Botox In A Bottle?

Cosmetic surgery is an ever growing trend. Living in an 'instagram world' the desire for perfection has become part of our everyday lives. Even at the age of 21 I find myself looking in the mirror and noticing every fine line and flaw. A US study actually found that beauty related products (including surgery) is just as addictive as drugs and alcohol and one of the most popular things in the world right now. 
 I don't think I would ever commit to any sort of cosmetic surgery
1) i'd be terrified!
2) the possibility of it going wrong/not liking the results is actually pretty high.
However, I do believe in taking care of your skin and starting the anti-aging process as early as possible. So, when the serum I was using ran out I wanted to try a new one and I ended up picking up the balance wrinkle freeze serum. 


This product contains 'syn ake' which is designed to replicate the effects of snake venom and freeze the face muscles in order to decrease wrinkles and fi…
