7th Heaven – Dead Sea Mud Mask – Review

Hi everyone,

A few weeks ago I did a blog post all about 7th Heaven and spoke about the Manuka Honey Peel off mask. You can check it out right here.

Today, I shall be talking about the Dead Sea Mud Mask.

20170730_102712

Unlike the other mask I tried, this was a Mud Mask which meant that it was going to be messier than peel off masks. But, I wasn’t disappointed by the end result that it left me with.

Minerals found in the Dead Sea help clean our impurities and open blocked pores for cleaner and softer skin. So I am all about unblocking those pores and getting rid of them!

20170730_102725

The main ingredients found in this Mud Mask were –

Dead Sea Salt – 

A mineral found in the Dead Sea. Dead sea minerals leave our skin feeling relaxed and nourished. I have tried multiple products from Arad which had it’s main ingredients from the Dead Sea. And I loved using their products, they did help my skin become cleaner.

The nutrients from the Dead Sea in this face mask help cleanse our pores, moisturise our skin and draw out any impurities, dirt and grime that we end up with because of today’s modern lifestyle.

Sea Kelp and Seaweed – 

These are, “large algae which grow in the seas and oceans around the world, or on rocks below the high-water mark.” Seaweed is, “high in nutrients, is a fantastic detox agent and could even improve the health of your heart. This slimy green plant could be a vital part of your beauty regime.”

The Seaweed and Sea Kelp in the face mask helps with moisturising our skin, “whilst fighting the signs of aging, helping you banish those wrinkles for good.” It can also be seen as a natural exfoliant, and helps with washing away the dead skin cells to leave your skin, “feeling fresh, clean and renewed.”

Lavender – 

Lavender is commonly used to treat skin disorders such as acne, wrinkles, psoriasis (which I am accustomed to!) and other inflammatory conditions.

Mud masks in general help with your daily cleansing routine in keeping your skin “super clean” and “less prone to blemishes and uneven skin tones.”

My thoughts – 

I applied the Mud Mask after having cleansed my face with my Vichy Normaderm Facial Cleansing Gel. 

I then applied the mask on a dry face using a flat foundation brush. I left the mask on for approximately 45 minutes. I KNOW I should have only left the mask on for 15 minutes as that it what it states I should do but it felt so cooling on my face I just wanted to leave it on. That and I was watching an episode of Saving Hope that I couldn’t pause it until it was finished!

But I really love how it left my skin looking so clean and so smooth. Throughout the day I felt my skin feeling refreshed and healthier. I do really recommend this mask and I prefer this one over the Honey Peel off that I tried before!

Vichy Ideal Soleil Anti-Sand SPF 50 – Review

Hi Everyone, 

I hope you are all having a lovely week and a great SUMMER! Here in Malta, it is boiling hot to the point that I get scared when I know that I will have to drive my car round 10 am until 5 pm! My car isn’t Malta Summer Friendly!

As Summer has fully arrived, the UV rays become more harmful to our skin. Therefore, we need to get our sun protection on! I have recently started using the Ideal Soleil Anti Sand sun cream from Vichy which has SPF 50.

Now I do not quite fancy sun creams or sunblocks – they are always so sticky (but it is very IMPORTANT that you apply it during the SUMMER TIME). And if you are like me and first you apply your makeup and then apply suns cream, then forget the time that you worked on your look, because it usually will get messed up by the sunblock.

19897837_10211948550361769_1472883821_o

However, recently I have been given the opportunity to try out the Ideal Soleil Anti Sand sun lotion from VICHY. I found that the product didn’t leave me with a  sticky feeling thanks to its non-sticky formula and just blended nicely into the skin. Which meant, that even though you may have put on some makeup before and then you would apply this product after – it wouldn’t leave you all patchy and white! It blends ever so nicely into the skin, even with makeup on!

A little information about the product – 

19911552_10211948550281767_84014032_o

Like I said it has SPF50 and protects us from UVA and UVB rays. It has a ‘sensorial texture’ which helps in the product being gentler and more effective on the skin. Also. this lotion may be applied on any skin type including sensitive skin. It is Paraben free and Hypoallergenic.

19911698_10211948549201740_532571995_o

It includes Vichy Mineralising Water, which is a water-resistant formula that helps in keeping the skin moisturised and hydrated. It also protects the skin from becoming damaged by the sun’s rays.

It has a ‘lightweight texture’ that helps the skin in absorbing it without leaving a ‘greasy residue.’ This products also entails to be an Anti-Sand lotion as it has an ‘ultra-dry finish’ which helps the skin to easily brush sand off.

How to apply – 

19875943_10211948549921758_1901540475_o

Simply apply this before being exposed to the sun. And then keep reapplying it frequently to maintain protection from the sun especially after swimming.

My thoughts – 

When using this product I found that it worked well with my skin. Like I said the product is easy to rub into the skin and it barely shows on the skin except for a little glimmer.

What I loved the most about the product was it’s unique Sun Lotion scent. As most sun creams have that common scent. However, this one had a lovely fresh scent to it.

When applying it to the skin it feels refreshing and hydrating. I also tried it at a sandy beach and was impressed by how little bits of sand stuck onto the skin. Therefore, this is a perfect product for those who DISLIKE any sand that gets stuck all over their bodies!

It protected me from the sun’s rays and didn’t leave me with that sticky-icky feeling! It has become my new BEST FRIEND for the beach!

Have you ever tried out this product? If not, are you intrigued by it? Comment down below!!

Testing Out Born Pretty Store Cheap Makeup!

Hi everyone, 

Hope you are all doing well! When finishing the school/work year, the last week is all so tiring especially with the weather resembling a hot summer days! Therefore, apologies for not blogging too often as I normally tend to.

Yesterday, I uploaded a new video all about 5 recent Bornprettystore makeup products. And I would like to share them on blog too!

Don’t forget that I have a 10% discount code you can use at CHECKOUT – Simply enter – KEZZH10 – this code can only be used on non-sale items.

IMG_9869

Born Pretty Store is a website that sells relatively cheap makeup. It sells makeup, nail products, accessories and many more things. So be sure to browse around the website!

You can CLICK HERE to view a previous blog post where I tried makeup from this website for the very first time!

Here are the 5 products that I tried out – 

Silicone Sponge Pattern 1

Now I have never tried these types of Silicone applicators before and so this was my first time trying it out. I found that all it did was place my makeup in blotches all around my face. It didn’t perform any blending of any kind either. I had to go in with a foundation brush to blend my foundation.

So I wouldn’t recommend this product. However, maybe I didn’t use it right?

IMG_9876

Sponge HolderLight pink

Ever wanted your beauty blender to be placed in an egg cup as an egg would be placed when eaten as a boiled egg? Well, you can look no further as this is the perfect beauty blender or any type of blender holder that you can find. It makes a cute room decor too!

False Lashes

IMG_9872

Now I am not the best of applying lashes and these are quite a hefty pair of lashes as they slightly weigh more than your natural looking fake lashes. So I am not going to lie and say that I managed to stick the lashes on my first try. I think it was the forth time that I managed to finally put them on right!

Was it worth it? Yes! The look they gave was nothing like the look I usually go for however, it is nice to sometimes jump out of your comfort zone and try out new things!

I honestly love them and think that you should definitely give these a shot!

Rainbow Highlighter 

IMG_9873

Something else that I had never tried before is a Rainbow Highlighter. I went for it but I didn’t like the end result. The blue, purple and green I didn’t understand what made them a highlight? But the last two colours I get!

The orange and the pink do create a lovely highlight. This highlight is also covered in glitters so if you are not a glitter fan, be aware!
Matte liquid lipstick – Shade 9

IMG_9881

The last time I tried BornPrettyStore makeup I had tried a Matte Lipstick from the same formula and collection that this came from. I prefer this red colour to the dark purple that I tried last time! This is such a gorgeous, red matte lipstick and it just sits on my lips ever so well! It isn’t sticky or drying and doesn’t transfer either!

I truly recommend this collection and this colour!

DiCent by Mz Flo – His & Hers Car Perfume Oil Diffuser

Hi Everyone, 

Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday!

Since summer is quickly approaching and the days were our cars are all cool whilst being parked while we are doing errands are over; we will need something to keep our cars from the inside feel a little bit refreshing when driving back home.

Now I know there are more cars with working AC’s on however, mine is a little bit of an oldy and so I haven’t got an ac in my car. Therefore, having a car perfume oil diffuser helps just a little.

18767223_10211500102470852_62373321_o

I was approached by DiCent by Mz Flo and was asked to try out one of her car perfume oil diffusers. She has plenty of scents available for both men and women. Here are the scents being offered to us ladies –

#EMPORIO DIAMONDS

#BY ARMANI

#EUPHORIA CALVIN KLEIN

#YSATIS

#VERSACE YELLOW DIAMOND

or their facebook page – https://m.facebook.com/DiCentByMzFlo

I got mine in the scent of Coco Chanel and I love it. I cannot compare it to a Coco Chanel Perfume as I don’t own one but I love this scent.

18789552_10211500099670782_1719146798_o

18766990_10211500099630781_526478414_o

18789215_10211500095750684_1866612653_o

It comes in a cute little pocket, packaged ever so nicely; and even leaving it in your room it makes a lovely scent and the scent goes all around. Mine is now hanging in my boiling car outside, but I know that once I open the door and go inside my car, besides it being terribly hot I have this lovely scent too waiting for me.

I hope you liked this review. What do you think about these car perfume oil diffusers? 

Thank you so much for reading, happy Sunday!

I would like to personally thank Ladymakeup.eu for giving me the opportunity to review these products for all my followers!!

I also would like to add that ladymakeup.eu is an online makeup shop which holds a lot of different drugstore brands from ELF, Makeup Revolution, MUA, Real Techniques, Sleek, NYX and many more!

So anyways going back to the lipsticks I have never tried anything from Golden Rose so I was excited to try out these new lip products. They are called the Longlasting Liquid Lipsticks which are Matte and Kissproof!!

A basic summary – I tried 12 shades however on the ladymakeup.eu website there are 5 NEW SHADES!

There are a lot of pinks mostly and I simply love them! They have a scent and their formula is very creamy. They remind me a lot of the Milani Amore Matte Lip Cremes.

They are very soft to the lips and not drying! They are quite long lasting however, if you are anticipating a snack or food I would recommend you keeping it in your bag to reapply!

In the video you will see me testing out whether or not they are kiss proof by kissing the back of my hand. And let me tell you they are however they have to completely dry down to a matte finish or else there would be SOME transfer!

They also don’t take that long to dry!

The sad thing is that they are not named and only have a shade number given to each one!

Here are a closer look to the 12 shades!

New Candles and FACEBOOK GIVEAWAY!

Hi Everyone, 

As you might have realised I have found a liking towards scented candles!

img_7340-2

I need a candle lit in my room to motivate me to either work or to make my room look more cosy – I guess I like giving it some sort of ambience and the candles do this!

I already had wrote a post about three candles I purchased from the same place I will mention below; that I have loved and finished! If you would like to check it out you could do so right here –

Blogmas Day 10 & 11 – New Candles & a New Video!!

I purchased these candles from this Facebook page called Kandle – Handmade Scented Candles.

img_7326

I chose these four scented candles and so far I have only tried one. However, they all smell great! The one I tried was the Creme Brulee and I absolutely love it!

Something else that I love about these candles are the packaging! They come in a cute jar that you can easily keep after the candle has been used up!! They also come with a label and a picture which I think adds to my liking towards them!

The candles I bought were – 

Baked Apple Spice 

20170121_154649

This is described to be a warm spiced apple fragrance and this blends together with “notes of clove, cinnamon and ginger, sweetened with maple syrup and vanilla.”

I chose this because it feels like a candle you MUST have for winter!

Creme Brulee 

20170124_182331

This is the one I have lit right now! As soon as you lift off the tin a lovely vanilla scent comes out!

20170121_154638

It is said to have a “warm creamy vanilla custard pudding drenched with creamy buttery caramel sauce.” This I definitely can smell; it is a strong vanilla scent, so if you are a vanilla lover I truly recommend this one!

Home Sweet Home

20170121_154628

This scent is supposed to be “a super-spicy heartwarming blend of cinnamon and cloves, softened with rose and ylang ylang”. I am looking forward to lighting this up, hence why when creme brulee finishes, this is the one I will go for.

I guess it will make your room feel cosy and home-y!

Magnolia in Bloom

20170121_154620

I chose this scent because whilst looking for a winter-y candle I thought why not get a spring related one too!

I guess it’s always good to prepare early!

It is said to have “a complex sexy magnolia scent” together “with top notes of mandarin, ylang ylang, grapefruit, freesia and hyacinth; middle notes of tuberose, magnolia, plum, and lily; on base notes of white musk and vanilla bean.”

This all sounds so great and spring like no? I cannot wait to light it up too!

I honestly love these handmade scented candles!

I also would like to share with you that I am hosting a GIVEAWAY on my Facebook Page KezziesCorner thanks to Kandle – Handmade Scented Candles! 

I am giving away the Mango Papaya scented candle. It is a blend of sweet tropical mango and fresh papaya.

Remember – you have to be Maltese to participate! Good luck to everyone!!

Thank you so much for reading! 

Do you love scented candles?

Have a lovely day!

Arad Dead Sea Malta – The Facial Cleansing Milk Review

Hi everyone,

I hope you had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed the time with your family, friends and loved ones. I wish you all a lovely HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Today’s post is about a product from the brand called Arad.

I would like to thank Arad Dead Sea Malta for giving me this opportunity to try out and review their products. You can visit them right here on their Facebook Page – Click Here.

Therefore, keep your eyes out for a number of reviews from this brand in the upcoming weeks to come and maybe even a Giveaway!

I personally had never tried any of their products, especially since they are skin products. I tend to just stick to my day to day face products and never change them as my skin is quite sensitive. I also have acne prone skin and do breakout quite often.

However, I was curious to try out their products and so I did.

Before I go onto review today’s product I would like to give a basic overview of the brand Arad.

screen-shot-2016-12-27-at-14-03-45

On their website, they state that a source of their products is from The Dead Sea which is, “the deepest hypersaline lake in the world, whose unique mineral content has been used as a boon for healthy skin for thousands of years.”

Arad is made up of 26 minerals (such as Pomegranate, Propolis and Mari Coll n-30 extracts) which are found in the dead sea and together they make the Arad 26 natural skin care line.

What are these ingredients and what do they do? 

  • The Pomegranate is a powerful antioxidant, natural SPF booster and has Vitamins A & C.
  • Propolis is a natural ingredient and includes natural minerals and amino acids which are considered to have “antiseptic, antibacterial, water-binding and antioxidant properties.” It also includes Vitamins B compound that controls excess oiliness, pimples, irritability and redness. It also has a soothing effect on the skin.
  • Mari Coll n-30 is a high-purity, marine derived collagen that helps moisturise your skin, strengthens connective skin tissues and provides anti-irritant benefits.

These minerals come with plant-based ingredients that extract the purest of ingredients. The products are “preservative free, and most do not have additives such as parabens.”

Having read this about the brand I was curious to try out at least one of their products immediately!

Yesterday evening I tried out my first product, as it came time for bed I had to remove my makeup. Normally I would use my Vichy Pureté Thermale 3 in 1 but I used something different.

I used the Arad Facial Cleansing Milk – Make Up Remover.

img_6538

This product states that it contains Dead Sea Minerals which helps to remove all kinds of make-up and eliminates skin impurities. It is specially formulated to leave your skin prepared for further absorption of facial creams that you would follow up with after.

It is enriched with calming plant extracts and is suitable for sensitive eyes and users of contact lenses.

15784942_10210107778343619_1553822914_o

I gently squeezed the product onto a cotton pad and began rubbing it against my face. My makeup instantly came off. It wasn’t harsh against my skin nor did it burn my skin or cause any irritation.

15785102_10210107777543599_183950634_o

I was surprised at how quick it removed the makeup, my cotton pad was full of all that gunk!

It then came time to remove my eye makeup – and I was surprised as it again did not irritate my eye area and it removed my eye makeup with one rub! Yes I did have to go rub again to remove my mascara but the eyeliner came off so quick where usually I would have to rub a few times until it has cleared!

When I was done, I knew that my skin was cleansed of all my makeup by noticing that my pores were emphasised and huge! Was I happy with that? Maybe not but this Facial Cleanser really does the trick at removing your makeup!!

img_6540

I highly recommend this especially after a night out dancing with your friends! I know the feeling of just wanting to go home and get into bed without washing off your makeup! But with this product I am pretty sure that it would only take a minute or two and then you can jump into bed and snore all the way through to the afternoon!

Have you ever tried any products from the brand? If not, are you curious to try them out now? 

Thank you so much for reading!! 

Love Kezia
