Masks To Help WIth Acne

Masks For Acne

Firstly I have a new background - yay! My mum got it for me when we went shopping last weekend and I love it!

Now on to the post. My acne has been playing up again recently, as I've had a stinking cold. I always find that I get spots whenever I'm about to get ill and then they last ages; way after I've fought off whatever illness I had. Therefore I've been masking my ass off to try and get my face back to a reputable state and I thought I'd share my favourites with you today.

B. Revealed Glycolic Cleansing Peel - £7.99
This is my favourite mask ever! It's an exfoliating peel that really helps to smooth my skin, as it removes any dead skin cells. My face always feel really supple after using this but it never feels stripped at all. I've definitely noticed the most difference in my acne since adding this mask into my rotation and I love the fact that it only has to stay

Current Cruelty Free Favourites

Current Cruelty Free Favourites

Sorry I've been a bit MIA recently but life happened you know?! Also I've been looking into more cruelty free products and doing some research so I've been a little busy. Anyway I thought for my comeback post I'd share some of the cruelty free products I've been loving recently.

GOSH X-Ceptional Wear Foundation in Natural - £7.99
This is an amazing foundation. We didn't get off to a great start and I wasn't sure at first, but I persevered and tried some different ways of application and now it's a full blown love affair. It makes my skin look really dewy and it's a great coverage without looking cakey. It also matches my skin colour perfectly. I have a full review of this coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled.

Cruelty Free Skincare with Superdrug

Superdrug Vitamin E Range

I recently read Steph's post about Why Go Cruelty Free? and it really made me think about the beauty products that I use and what goes into making them. I've since done some research on animal testing in the cosmetics industry and it's appalling what happens to poor, defenceless animals for the sake of our vanity. I won't go into too much detail here as there are plenty of articles out there where you can find out more information about animal testing, but if this is something that you're interested in then definitely give Steph's post a read. I've since made a decision to try and go cruelty free with my beauty products. I won't be throwing away all my products that I already have, as that's just wasteful but if I buy any new products I'm going to try and buy only from cruelty free brands.

One of these brands is Superdrug. All of their own branded products are Leaping Bunny approved and are entirely cruelty free. I already owned some of their Vitamin E range and abcolutely love it, so I was over the moon

Botanicals Spa Detox Aromatic Body Oil

Botanicals Spa Detox Oil

I was very kindly sent the Botanicals Spa Detox Aromatic Body Oil* to try out last week and after using this continously every day since I've had it I thought it was time to do a review and let you guys know what I think.

The Botanicals Spa Detox Aromatic Body Oil* is the latest addition to Botanicals' Massage Oils Spa Detox Collection. This oil contains a mix of essential oils to stimulate circulation, eliminate toxins, strengthen capillaries and discourage fluid retention. The Spa Detox Oil is 100% natural and 99% organic meaning it doesn't contain any harmful ingredients or artificial colours or fragrances. I also recently found out that Botanicals is a cruelty free brand too, which is becoming more important to me lately but I'll mention more about that in another post.

This is such a lovely oil. It smells of lavender and has a lovely relaxing aroma to it. Whenever I use this it instantly makes me feel calm, which is why I like to use this at night just after I get out the shower, so I feel nice and calm

Barry M Sunset Nail Paints

Barry M Sunset Nail Paints

Last weekend I added to my collection of Barry M Sunset Nail Paints and remembered how much I actually love them, so I thought today I would share the love with you guys. I picked up 'Dark Side of The Shroom' and 'Plum On Baby' as Superdrug had an offer on. It was 'Dark Side Of The Shroom' that caught my eye as it's the loveliest mauve shade and it gave me all the heart eye emojis - I just had to have it!

The idea behind these nail polishes is that by using the Sunset Nail Paints first and then using the Sunset Daylight Curing Top Coat over the top it gives you gel effect nails without having to cure them with a UV Lamp - as suggested in the name the topcoat cures the nails with the use of daylight instead. I can vouch that this system does give your nails a lovely finish and they look like gel nails, but without having to fork out the money for a real gel manicure. They're really easy to use too - you just use the coloured nail polish first and apply 1 or 2 coats of this, depending on how deep you want the colour, and then apply the Sunset Top Coat over the top - simple. It's

Empty Casket Jewellery

Empty Casket

Today I want to let you know about a brilliant new shop I found via Instagram: Empty Casket. They're a jewellery store that specialise in witchy jewellery and stock everything from chokers to rings and even a few trinkets too, all at great prices. I can't remember exactly whose Instagram I first saw the competition on, but Empty Casket ran a competition to win a £50 voucher and someone I follow had posted it on their feed. I had a browse through their site and instantly fell in love with everything! There was one thing that caught my eye that I HAD to have and I ordered it straight away.
