Dermaroller

IMG_8626

The Dermaroller has caught a lot of people’s eye, so thought I’d write a blog on it. The Dermaroller is a tool that has 100’s of needles in order to create little holes in your skin so that your skin can repair itself. It improves acne scars, wrinkles, ageing and sun-damaged skin and stretch marks which gives the skin more of a glow.

But does it actually work?
I had read reviews on the Dermaroller and many people had said it worked, so I thought it is worth a buy to try it myself. I have been using it now for a while (at least once a week) and it is something that takes some time to work but I am slowly started to see changes.

I use a 1.5mm Dermaroller, although you can get these in different sizes, I went for a slightly bigger one than the usual as I wanted to use it for my body to get rid of stretch marks. I use it all over my face and lips as recently I’ve found out that it makes your lips look more pumped and smooth.

I bought mine from:

Teeth Whitening 


Having the whitest brightest thing is something we all want right? Well I came across this product ‘Activated Charcoal, Teeth Whitening Powder (Coconut Shell Charcoal)’ and after reading the reviews I had to buy it!

I bought this product and it came in a Charcoal powder form in where you wet your tooth brush and dip it in the powder and brush your teeth without using your everyday toothpaste. After one use I had noticed that my teeth did become a bit whiter than before and of course repetitive usage will bring better results.

You have to try it too and can purchase this item online (Amazon) for only £12.99!!
If you’re not too keen on this, Lush do a Charcoal toothpaste also..


This is called ‘BOOM!’ and comes in little Charcoal tablets in which you bite into, the taste is a bit weird but you just have to ignore it and you just brush using one tablet and you’ll see the results! You can even go to Lush and get a sample to try it first!

I have tried them both and can say they are both as good as each other, try them out!

‘Kylie Jenners Burgundy Palette’ Dupe!

kylie-jenner-kyshadow-burgundy-1170x780_530x
The burgundy eyeshadow palette by Kylie Jenner has really become a popular item of the Kylie collection. It is a beautiful palette containing beautiful colours, however, is the price of $42.00 USD. I have found a dupe of this, may not be the exact same but contains most of the colours and is super cheap!

Lottie London
This is the ‘Lottie London, The Rusts’ palette that I had found in a beauty store (Superdrug, UK). I had been looking for a nice orange/brown colour for so long until I found this palette! I was so excited so I had to buy it and must I say the pigment is so good and it is so similar to the ‘Kylie Burgundy Palette’. I am honestly in love and thought I should recommend it to you guys! The best thing is that the price is only, £9.95!!! You can find this palette on:  https://lottie.london/collections/eye/products/shadow-swatch-the-nudes-1

Drinks that help you to lose weight.

Everyone wants to lose weight and here are two tips on how to just by drinking liquids!

tumblr_nic6wyHL7V1u0tw7so1_1280

Summer is here and everyone is trying to be healthy right? So, since I’ve seen people working out and eating their salads, I decided to let you in on two secrets. Last summer I had started to drink lemon water with every meal and whenever I felt dehydrated. If you didn’t know lemon is an element that helps you lose weight, yes it’s a fact (google it)! So I combined lemons with water because what’s a drink more healthy than water?! In order to create this all you do is first get yourself an infuser water bottle these can be found online or in supermarkets. Then just slice the lemon into little pieces so it fits into the tube of the bottle. Add warm water, yes warm as it helps getting more of the juices out of the lemon to give you better results. Then put it in the fridge and leave to it get cold for a tastier refresher taste!

You don’t have to just use lemons, as you can add more stuff into your bottle! Experiment and try it out!

The next drink that helps you to lose weight is, Green Tea. Some of you may know this is not a secret, as green tea is known as one of the healthiest drinks out there.

How-to-Include-More-Green-Tea-in-Your-Diet

Green tea has a substance that boosts the metabolism, which burns the fat from your body. 2-3 cups of green tea everyday is benficial and can make a difference but to see a huge difference the more cups you drink a day the more of a result you will see.
I personally wasn’t a fan of green tea when I first tried it but I’ve realised the more you  drink it, the more you get used to it and now I love it, espcially knowing it is great for my body!

So, why not try these two methods or atleast one if you are trying to lose weight! Please leave a comment below to ask any questions or to tell me your results.

Make your eyes lighter with ‘honey’.

How-Is-Honey-Helpful-For-Eyes2
Honey is very beneficial to our health and skin in many ways but did you know it can make your eyes lighter? If you have brown eyes like mine that can often seem very dull and dark, now there is a possible solution to fix that. Last summer I had heard that eating a spoonful of honey in the morning and before bed can slowly make your eyes more of a lighter colour and this did seem to work slowly. However, reading on from this I had found that mixing honey with water and making it into an eye drop solution lightens the colour of your eye gradually. So, I decided to take the risk as I just wanted to experiment something and what’s a better way than trying to change the colour of your eyes? After a few days of trying it, I had realised that this method was actually working, I even tried to tell my friends but they thought I was crazy until they saw the results in my eyes (doesn’t make a huge difference but can see a lighter shade of brown).

If you would like to try this tip, just follow these instructions:

  1. Mix raw honey and warm water together. More water than honey is needed in order to make it a watery solution and safe, so make sure the liquid is transparent.
  2. Pour the liquid into an empty eye drop bottle (my bottle was just a previous brighten eyedrops bottle that I had purchased at a drug store in which I emptied and washed out).
  3. Shake the bottle once the liquid is poured into it, so it gives it a good mix.
  4. Leave overnight or a few hours so the liquid has cooled down and ready to use.
  5. Apply 2-3 drops in each eye, twice a day.

Follow these results and you should have lighter eyes in no time. If you are a bit cautious about applying honey in your eyes then you could always just have a spoonful of honey in the morning and before bed. If anyone has any questions or is trying it please comment below and tell me about your results.

The new face mask obsession.

The ‘Black Mask’.

So, I will begin posting about the new face mask trend that is meant to be amazing! This is the ‘black mask’, as I am sure everyone has heard of. If you haven’t then well the black (charcoal) mask, is a mask that you peel off after applying it onto your skin. The peel tends to grab all pores in order to detoxify and clear skin, in which it acts out as a magnet to draw out trapped dirt deep within the pores. The peel of the mask can at times hurt as it has a very tight grip. So, therefore, the little hairs on your face will also be removed during the peeling (who needs to wax/thread their faces anymore?!).

Peels and Seals Activated Charcoal Peel

As it such a big trend now, there are many versions of the mask that are created by different companies. The most popular one is, ‘Shills’ however this can start from a starting price of £12.99 for just 50ml (Tescos). I decided to go for another brand version of the mask (‘Peels and Seals’) and got this for a lesser price and double the amount (100ml) and surprisingly it still works wonders!

L’Oreal Pure Clay

Continuing the topic on masks, there is one more mask that has a trend craze but not as much as ‘the black mask’. This mask is created by L’Oreal and is called the ‘Pure Clay mask’. There are three different types: Purity Mask, Detox Mask and Glow Mask. Each mask has its own purpose. Although, I have not tried the other two but will do shortly, I have tried the ‘Glow Mask’. The results I got after using this product was absoloutly amazing as my skin looked healthier and I had much more of a glow. The smell was refreshing and I have to say one of the best masks that I have used in a while.

L’Oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask

Due to L’Oreal being a well-known brand these masks can almost be found anywhere especially at drugstores such as, Boots and Superdrug. These masks are retailed at £7.99 each but if you catch a sale you will get them for around £5/6.

So, why not get your hands on these two products? If you’re thinking of getting clear and more of a glow to your skin in summer then these items will be perfect for you!
