MY SPOT / BLEMISH EMERGENCY BOX

If you have been a reader of my blog for a while you will know that my skin is prone to spots. I dunno if it’s because I started puberty early but all these years later and I still get these pesky buggers on my face.

So I thought I’m going to make a box for when my skin is bad and then don’t have to hunt for all the products, they’ll all be in one place.

Using an old box from Birchbox and turned it upside down so the names on the bottom and filled it with the following

The Tea Tree anti imperfection daily solution which has a pipette ( like those things you used in chemistry at school) you just apply it to the spots before bed and it will help diminish the redness of them.

The anti imperfection night mask works like a dream. I have been using it this month on my face which chose to have a major break out. I’ve had it for ages and never used it. I can say my spots are nearly gone in 4 days of usage.

I love it when spot treatments come in travel sizes cos you can just put them in your handbag and off you go.

The Sebamed is really good if you need to get the oil on your face and under control. Not used it a great deal but definitely worth getting.

You all know that Dermalogica is a worldwide favourite for skincare and this little beauty is great for when you get hormonal spots, it seems to help them alot.

This Laidbare is similar to the Sebamed  but is more of a cream. It’s specially formulated for oily to combo skin. Use it sparingly and it’ll last a long time.

Sudocrem has to be my absolute favourite for clearing up my spots. I dunno what’s in it but it works wonders and is only a couple of pounds.

I have only just added these patches and nose strips from Patchology to my box and not used them yet but I have read good things about them so I hope it’s true.

Why not make yourself a special box

So here’s my video I recorded yesterday when it came via Mr Postie

Go Au Natural with some natural skincare

Wow I am totally blown away by the following products I had as a birthday present from my sister in law.

I had never really used products that were so natural and organic, I just would go for a scent or what the product said it did and that was it.

This wild rose beauty balm is truly a miracle in a little jar.

It acts as a moisturiser on those dry spots and you can also use it to remove your make up at the end of the day. The big plus is that it smells absolutely gorgeous.

Next is this reviving white tea face mask that isn’t too heavy on the skin and leaves a fresh and clean feel. I love it already.

Who doesn’t love a facial mist? This is in the same scent as above. When you just want your skin to be hydrated this one will have your back… Well your face technically.

If you suffer with the odd anxious moment, then this little roll on will come to your rescue. It has lavender in it which is relaxing, as you all know. Well if you didn’t you do now.

Before you nod off I really do rate this beauty sleep serum that doesn’t leave a sticky residue or anything just helps aid your sleep and makes your skin fabulous at the same time.

It all comes in this lovely little bag that you can either keep them all in or reuse it for something else. Think it’s perfect for travelling.

You’ll always get a leaflet telling you all about the product itself which I think is very useful.

Fierce Female Friday Week 3

This week for Fierce Female Friday we have two wonderful ladies…..

Bailey who is a 16 year old lifestyle and skincare blogger who I’ve only just discovered.
Also Gee who is a book,beauty and lifestyle blogger and was featured about a month ago but I wanted her back on here.


So let’s find out what they both said 💕


BAILEY


1. What makes you feel powerful?

Getting dressed up and feeling confident

2. What 3 strong women do you look up to?

My mum, Victoria (in the frow) and Halsey

3. What advice would you give to someone needing to find their inner fierceness?

Just go for it! It’s all about how you feel about yourself.

1. What makes me feel powerful?

knowing that I have control of my life and I can do whatever I put my mind to.

2. Three women who I look up to

I feel like I answer this the same every time I’m asked a question like this

but my first person would be my old drama teacher who taught me that if you are passionate about something to shout it as loud as you can from the rooftops and never stop because someone else thinks it’s stupid.

Secondly my cousin who honestly has had some pretty bad luck over the years but stands tall and fights through it all


Lastly Megan Jayne Crabbe @bodyposipanda_ because I just think it’s incredible that someone has such an amazing personality and mindset and is promoting something I truly believe in.

3. My advice for finding your inner fierceness would be:

to understand that no matter what you are feeling and whatever is stopping you from being fierce, if you truly believe in yourself and work hard you will achieve all you want to. I feel like when I’m having a small moment where I am not at my best I go back to a quote from one of my favourite films the breakfast club where they say “spend a little more time trying to make something of yourself and a little less time trying to impress people. “ I think that’s so true, it’s so important to make sure that you are focused on what you want to do.

The benefits of a facial roller

For a few months I just kept seeing so many influencers and YouTubers using these facial rollers and I caved in and thought I want to try one they look fun.

So I went and found myself one on my old trusty amazon

Mine is a Rose Quartz one, you can get Jade ones that are green and apparently they work differently.

A Jade roller revitalises the skin, wakes it up, makes your sluggish skin into stunning skin

A Rose Quartz roller on the other hand is full of minerals such as silcium, magnesium and Iron.

🌺 The silcium (silica) helps the elasticity in your skin

🌺 The magnesium helps relieve muscle spasms and helps headaches and sinus problems

🌺 The Iron helps regulate blood circulation and eliminates fatigue

So you can see why I chose the Rose Quartz over the Jade.

I guess the Jade one could be used in the morning and the Rose Quartz for the evening.

I find putting mine in the fridge adds a nice cooling effect to the skin.

Here’s the link to mine (I’m not sponsored or affiliated I just think it’s a fab product)

ROSE QUARTZ FACIAL ROLLER

Have any of you used one of these and have you seen any benefits from it?

Skincare faves

My skin is sensitive, dry and prone to spots so I need to pay attention to all the goings on of my face.

Olay has me covered with these 3 and it didn’t leave me out of pocket.

I’m pretty sure it was a 3 for 2 at boots so it was a win win all round.

At night I will use the beauty fluid to give my skin just enough moisture but not too much that it gets on my pillow.

Then in the morning I use my olay daily facials as they get off any dirt from overnight and I feel they help get rid of my dry areas in the process.

Then before I do my make up I use the day cream. It also acts as a primer too so it’s a perfect base for my foundation.

The worst thing I get if I don’t prep my skin before make up is dry skin underneath my foundation and nothing looks worse than that when every other part of your made up face looks lovely.
