☆ Eczema ☆

27/07/2017

I have touched on this subject before in a blogpost, but eczema is a huge part of my life. I have had it since I was born. I have tried so many different creams and even been under the hospital skin clinic for it.☀

Eczema is essentially a form of dermatitis, it is were skin can become itchy,  red, dry and the skin can become cracked. So to keep on top of my eczema I exfoliate regularly and ensure I cream my skin a lot. For moisturiser for a while now I have used Aveeno. Then when my skin become worse I use either eumovate ( a steroid cream for less serve flare ups) or Dermovate ( a steroid cream for serve flare ups).   ☀

When using these creams I always apply Aveeno a normal moisturiser first then apply a steroid moisturiser if I have too. I then wrap my hands in clingfilm and put in cotton socks.  The clingfilm came about as I was struggling really bad and my mum was looking into alternatives. By wrapping the affected area in clingfilm it can only soak into the skin. Whereas if I was to use just a moisturiser and cotton socks, most of the cream would be absorbed by the cotton socks.☀

Every night I have to cream my hands as they get very dry and sometimes crack. Also to keep on top of them as I love going to the gym but when my hands sweat a lot they can become sore from lifting weights and holding onto machines. ☀

The steroid creams I get from my doctor as they are medicated creams I get them on a prescription. But you can get the moisturiser from Tesco’s, Boots, Superdrug or chemist sell them. ☀

Let me know if thus post has helped you in anyway whether it be understanding eczema more, or learning about creams which could essentially help you if you suffer from eczema.☀

☆ Beauty Bay Haul ☆

25/07/2017

I went on a spending ban for some of this year, but unfortunately broke it when Beauty Bay had an offer running of spending £50 and receive 6 free samples. I thought about things I actually needed like cleanser e.t.c. My sister and I went halves so we both picked up some essentials and then picked up a few little extras to makeup the money.☀

I picked up a cleanser from Mario Badescu as I had tried the sample size and really liked it. I needed a cleanser as when I get back form the gym I have to cleanse my skin as a lot of dirt and sweat is needed to be remove to keep my skin clean. I picked up the Seaweed Cleansing soap.☀

Also I picked up a Make Up Geek shadow in the shade Black-light. It is a purple, blue shimmery duo chrome shadow. A colour right up my street. I know how amazing Makeup Geek shadows are as I already do own some. I also wanted to pick up some other shades but they were out of stock.☀

The last item I bought was a Jouer Long Wear Lip Creme in Tawny Rose. I picked up this colour as I googled swatches of colours and this colour was a shade that attracted me the most. When I first opened the lip creme I thought it was very dark, but when swatched the colour it was more of what the swatches online looked like. ☀

My sister picked up a Jouer Long Wear Lip Creme in Terra for a friend’s birthday present. In the packaging we describe the colour as a warm browny, toned nude. The colour looks nice but wouldn’t suit my skin tone as I am very fair.☀

Also she picked up a skincare product from Mario Badescu it was The Drying Lotion. It is a two toned product which helps to dry up and clear up your skin by helping to remove spots.☀

When the package arrived by next day delivery my sister and I were very excited and couldn’t wait to open the package. The six free samples were amazing and I was very happy with what we have received.  The free samples were a decent size of Beauty Blender cleanser  0.558 oz ( which we love and use), an Anastasia Clear brow gel 2.5ml ( which my sister loves), Michael Todd Charcoal Detox deep pore gel cleanser 50ml ( very excited to try), Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing soap 29ml ( great to have a small size), Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Lotion 29ml ( very excited to try it is a toner but essentially I can use as a micellar water to cleanse skin) and finally First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydra- Firm Sleeping Cream ( moisturising face mask).☀

I hope this helps people who are thinking of shopping on Beauty Bay and buy from the promotions in the future. I will try and keep you all up to date with any promotions they do offer. Also keep your eyes out for reviews of the items bought in this haul.

☆ Stretch Marks ☆

23/07/2017

We all have them right? So what’s the issue. I love and have always referred to them as tiger stripes of life. They show how you have grown and have become the person you are today.☀

Well like everyone I am normal and have them moments when I think I haven’t had my children yet and I have quite a lot. Stretch marks are marks that are left when the skin has been stretched and returns to its original position. These are usually left due to us humans gaining and loosing weight.☀

I have a lot around my hips and back area. This is due to weight I have had and lost over time. We all have them and I do love them but when having a bad body day,  I think they are a flaw that I would prefer if they were less obvious.  ☀

There are solutions to help reduce them like Bio- Oil and laser therapy but most of the time I don’t have an issue but on a day when I have self doubt I struggle to deal with them. I am human like all of us and we all have our struggles whether that be wishing we were thinner, taller, have bigger or smaller boobs, bigger bum. So what I am trying to get out of this post is to spread positivity and to love your flaws and all. ☀

I hope you can all relate to this post and if you want to chat we can talk in the comments.  ☀

☆ Primark Haul ☆

21/07/2017

I popped into Primark the other week with my sister before she went on holiday just to pick up a few basics, and while I was there I saw some great pieces I had to have including finally getting my hands on the Chip Purse mug.☀

G light is from Next, Chip cup from Disney store, Chip purse from Primark and Disney tsum tsum Lumiere from Disney store.☀

I picked up a few cute cheap tops, which I can wear to the gym as I need a few more tops. I like vests for hot weather to help keep me cool, but when its a day when raining or in the evening I like to wear tops to keep a bit warm.☀

IMG_6429

To start with I picked up this super cute chip t shirt. ☀

IMG_6431

Next I picked this aqua vest top which was only £2.50, I love it because it says Hawaii and has super cute drawings on. This vest attracted my attention as it was aqua and had a water melon on. I knew it would be quick, easy and handy for the gym so just picked it up. ☀

I also found this top which I had seen online everywhere. It is so cute. Marie is popping out the top of the pocket and on the pocket the words read “Because I am a lady that’s why”. Super cute, soft and very comfortable. ☀

I also managed to pick up this beautiful grey top which has little pearls and crystal embellishments on the chest and shoulder area. It is very beautiful. I love pairing it with jeans as its just is a nice accent to an outfit.☀

IMG_6432

Finally I picked up this light pink long vest top with a beautiful rose and mandala inspired print. It is sheer and light weight so great for the gym. ☀

Let me know if you have picked any new bits recently. ☀

☆ Face Halo Review ☆

19/07/2017

IMG_6421

When Chloe and I first saw Chloe Morello had been part of making the Face Halo we knew we wanted to try it. A micro fibre circle pad that enable you to take all your makeup off with just water. So a few days after it was released they welcome custom from the UK as they were able to ship it to us.☀

IMG_6422

We waited roughly 21 days for them to arrive.  They are 20 usd each and you get 3 pads in the packet. They are micro fibre circle pads which are double sided. When they arrived they had an extra customs charge. We emailed the company who sent a lovely email and refunded our extra custom charge. They said they are trying their hardest to get a stockist in the UK so not lots of customers have to pay shipping and tax then an additional handling fee.☀

IMG_6425

Let talk about using the product I had 5 minute makeup on and wet the pad fully. I rub gently on my face and was amazed with the results it moved my makeup so easily with no effort and used no face-wash. Then after washing my makeup off i washed the pad with some hand soap and it left it looking brand new.☀

IMG_6426

They recommend using the pad once before after one wash. But since I only used one side I have saved it for the next day. I love the Face Halo it i so easy to use and clean. It saves the environment from cotton wool pads wasted. Also helps to save money on face wash. ☀

I would recommend this product 100% and can’t wait to see the UK stockist they are using and also any other products the brand bring out. ☀

Let me know if you have tried this product before.☀

☆ Free Prints App ☆

17/07/2017

I saw an advert for this app on TV one night and totally forgot about it until a friend of mine told me she had used th app and loved it. So I thought I would give it a go. When you sign up you get 10 free prints and free postage. So 10 6×4 photos for free. Then after that you get 45 free prints each month and only pay for the postage. With each order you make you get rewards which are like unlocking first class delivery, a free 7×5 photo e.t.c.☀

IMG_6438

Essentially this is an app where you can print off your photos and get them sent to your home to create albums e.t.c. This service is where you only pay for the postage sometimes its free other-times its £1.99 or £1.49 depending on how many prints you order.☀

I have printed lots of photos off with the app and even sent them to family and friends to brighten their day. This app is amazing. You don’t really think about printing photos off anymore only in the 90’s did people make albums now its all on your phone or computer. Well what happens if your phone breaks, gets stolen or you loose it. I think this app is a great idea.☀

Let me know if you have tried this app and your thoughts on it.☀
