Every week I will be uploading NEW GIVEAWAYS on my social media and stay tuned for some to also be uploaded on my YOUTUBE CHANNEL! I really do look forward to this month because I do get excited to set up and organise some giveaways for you. It is my way of saying thank you for your amazing support and for coming back to my little space and being part of my corner!
So yea I uploaded two new ones featuring Rimmel London, Wood And Tassel Handmade Jewellery and Pro Health Ltd who take care of brands such as Vichy which is my skincare holy grail!
That’s all for now as I really need to get working on some other things, so hope you are having a good week and take care!
Let’s see how much I will keep up to my blogging schedule, because if you didn’t know, I am trying to write up a blog post every Saturday!!
How are you all today? Me … not bad I guess, just a little confused. Malta is doing really well with regards to the COVID-19 situation, we even are getting some restrictions lifted starting from next Monday. Like clothes shops and shoe shops are reopening. You cannot go into changing rooms to try clothes or shoes, masks need to be worn and only a limited amount of people are allowed in the shop at once.
I mean it’s a start. Yet, I feel confused as to what I can do and what I cannot do. Like am I allowed to mix with other people? I mean I still live at home with my parents and brother, and well do not wish to put them at risk, so am practising strict isolation measures whereby I meet NO ONE. I mean I do go to work twice a week, and when I am home I take precautions and this means yes, that I don’t get any hugs … which I really miss !! I mean I do hug Nemo, she is my only proper contact and she’s not a hugger or a cuddler which makes it even worse.
This no hugging or cuddling is affecting me I think. Anyways point of the story, I am confused. Anyways, one thing I know how to do is pamper myself and I have found 3 products which have pampered me and made me feel better! These are the following –
#1 These are the Everyday Shampoo and Conditioner from Jo Hansford. I received all these items in the Lookfantastic Beauty Box I am subscribed too. I chose to subscribe to something like this, cos I thought …”hey it might introduce me to some new products.” And it has!!
So their scents might not be my favourite I felt that they were strong fruity scents but my hair did love them!! It was soft, shiny and not frizzy! I have highlights in my hair and these products did brighten them up and keep my lights ashy rather than go all brassy! Highly recommend you check this brand out!
#2 The next products is this Coffee Scrub!! I just featured this in my recent video on my YT Channel! I will link the video further down in this post!! I found this in the April 2020 lookfantastic box! OMG I loved using this! When I got out of the shower my skin felt super soft!!! I absolutely loved it!!! The only thing I do not like with coffee scrubs is how messy they can be! But so worth it!! It’s waiting for me in the shower to use it again!
#3 And my final product for today is this Starskin Face Mask! – OH MY GOD! IS ALL I HAVE TO STAY! First of all I have never used a sheet mask which includes 2 steps ! This one does! The first step was to use that capsule which came with pure camelia oil and I kinda used it all !! You only are meant to apply a little bit of drops but yes I used it all!! And then step 2 is applying the sheet mask! And let me tell you I can easily say that this is the best sheet mask I have ever tried in my entire life! Again, this was found in the April 2020 box of Lookfantastic and I loved it!!!! I highly recommend this mask!
YOU NEED TO TRY IT OUT! It gives you that pampered spa feeling!
Anyways, those were the three products I wished to share with you all for this week!! Have you tried any of them? Please let me know in the comments down below!!
Anywhos, that’s all for me today! Before I go I wish to share with you what videos I uploaded this week on my YT channel –
Last Weekly Vlog uploaded –
Then we had on Wednesday a full face of Primark Makeup tested out –
And then yesterday I uploaded my unboxing of the April 2020 Lookfantastic Beauty box –
It’s been a long time since I posted over here on my blog and it’s about time I start again. It’s 2019 which means it is a NEW YEAR, so I wish you all the best for the New Year. I have decided that I will be posting once a week right here on my blog so stay tuned for weekly posts every Friday!!
Today’s post is on a Moodmask that I tried from Patchology. The brand is a skincare brand and revolves around creating products which, as I quote them, “will not only fulfil their promise, but fit your life.” They also use the quote – “beauty at the speed of you” and it’s the inspiration for everything they do.
To all my Maltese readers, the website does ship internationally including our home land!!
I would like to thank Push Pr for these products and for introducing me to the brand! Patchology have created this bundle of three sheet masks which are all Moodmasks and are entitled as – Get Dewy With It, Just Let It Glow and The Good Fight. These masks are set to help your skin, by helping in removing any impurities. You can get these masks as a bundle or separately right here – https://www.patchology.com/moodmask-sheet-masks#
The masks are all sheet masks which in my opinion are quite convenient, as they are easy to apply and remove! The one I decided on using was the Get Dewy With It. And so in this post I will be talking to you about that one. However, if you wish to see a review on the other two masks, then let me know and I will do a separate blog post on them!
The Get Dewy With It sheet mask revolves around helping your skin be hydrated as “Hydrated skin is healthy skin.” What I liked most about this mask is it includes Hyaluronic Acid which helps your skin stay hydrated and I love my hyaluronic acid!! It also includes Rose of Jericho, Hijiki Algae, Honey and Prickly Pear to further make sure that you will get dewy skin!
Since this is a sheet mask, in my opinion as I said it’s easier to use but also faster to apply. Simply unfold the mask and place it onto your face making sure you get the best fit possible. And then you can go lay on your bed and leave it on for 10 minutes. I left it on surely for more than that as I loved the cooling sensation that it was leaving me with. When you want to remove the mask, simply remove it gently and then rub in the excess serum that you are left with into your skin. There is no need to rinse it off, just let your skin absorb all the goodness that this mask has!
After I applied the mask, I loved how my skin looked, it was glowing and it was dewy as it said. And even after 3 days my skin still felt hydrated. I personally do not drink enough water so this helped a lot. But I should start drinking more water everyday. I would recommend this mask as it has great results but also it’s so easy to use and to apply and to remove. So it would be a good mask for one of your pamper days and it’s only $5!!
Have you ever tried things from Patchology? Let me know!!
Thank you so much for reading, really appreciate it !!!
I haven’t written a blog post in a while and I miss writing on here. However, I have been regularly posting on my other social media sites such as my Instagram, Facebook and Youtube. So if you miss me and do not know that I have these channels too, would love it if you could support me there too!
Today’s blog post is about some products I received while attending a launch hosted by Korres Malta. It was the cutest decorated launch I had ever attended, hosted at VIlla Arrigo. I met some other talented people and we all enjoyed a lovely presentation by Stephanie Briffa who is the brand manager of Korres here in Malta. Korres have recently landed in Malta and can be found at Remedies pharmacies in Ta’ Xbiex, Birkirkara, Mellieħa, Sliema (OPENING SOON) and Siggiewi. As well as from Central Pharmacy in Rabat and St.Andrew’s Pharmacy in Swieqi.
We were given a back story of the brand and how it came to be developed and then we were introduced to the new collection – the Wild Rose Collection. Wild Rose oil offers antioxidant, moisturising and softening properties. And in combination with Vitamin C, helps repair fine lines and pigmentation while improving the overall texture of the skin.
I am so grateful to have been invited to an event and then to also receive three of there products from their Wild Rose Collection! And since the event I have adopted these products into my skincare routine and have so far used them for 2 weeks. And now here I am writing a blog post on how I felt these products have helped my skin since I started using them!
I love the packaging on all three products, it is just so beautiful, luxurious and I like how they look in my bathroom.
Brightening & First Wrinkles Day Cream – Normal/Combination skin –
First off I would like to say that besides this cream product coming out for normal to combination skin, they also have one for oily skin or dry skin. I LOVE the smell of this day cream, it just smells so lovely and is nice to use early in the morning as you are about to start off your day.
I apply this after having moisturised and I only use it in the morning (Apparently this is a moisturiser in itself so yeah you don’t have to moisturise before using this product). It offers 24 hour hydration, brightening and first wrinkles. It has a water cream texture that blends nicely into the skin. This cream besides containing Wild Rose oil, also has Vitamin C, turmeric extract and hyaluronic acid which helps improve the signs of premature ageing and evens skin tone to reveal smoother, younger looking skin.
Brightening & First Wrinkles Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial –
I use this everyday at night and again after having moisturised. It’s a lightweight cream that offers hydration and helps even skin tone with its corn powder that helps to absorb oiliness which results into a nice matte finish.
This is a sleeping face mask sort of that helps your skin be brighter by morning.
15% Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Bi-phase Booster –
I use this everyday in the morning and evening before moisturising and I apply 3 drops – 2 on either cheek and one on my forehead and rub it in. It is an intensive brightening and anti-fatigue skin care product that has a potent 15% Super Vitamin C brightening bi-phase booster to improve the appearance of first wrinkles, dark spots and dullness. The Vitamin C and Wild Rose oil helps in reducing signs of premature ageing and fatigue to reveal spotless skin.
Research showed that 94% of women who used this for 7 days claimed that they noticed improved skin’s overall appearance.
My thoughts ….
So I have combination skin and sensitive skin. These products did not cause any breakouts nor were there any bad reactions from having used them. As I wrote, I have only used them for 2 weeks and have not missed a day where I didn’t use all three of them.
I do find my skin to have gotten softer and brighter and in the mornings after having added these products in my routine. I noticed how the Brightening & First Wrinkles Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial, resulted to waking up with less dull looking skin. I think the most noticeable thing I also have noted is how smooth my skin always feels now which is a super positive from me.
As you can see when taking the photo i had quite a large spot and this is completely due to the fact that it’s my time of the month next week and I always notice a spot or two as that time approaches! But other than that annoying spot, I haven’t had much breakouts which I am super happy about! I hope that as I continue using it, it only will keep my skin smooth and soft. The issue with my skin that annoys me the most are my acne scars but these products are not associated with helping them and am still on the hunt with something to help decrease my scars! (If you know of anything please do leave me your replies in the comments down below!!)
So overall, do I recommend these products? If you are looking for products to help your skin be healthier, smoother, softer and brighter then yes I recommend them! For me, these were the results I noticed!
Have you guys ever tried out skincare products from Korres? Let me know in the comments down below!!
I hope you enjoyed my post, thank you so much for reading and for your support!!
I hope you all had an amazing weekend! I am back with another blog post, and am excited to share this with you all! It’s about a product that is all about caring for your body!
Today’s blog post is all about coffee scrubs from BodyBoom Malta. BodyBoom coffee scrubs help with making your skin feel silky smooth and moisturised whilst also leaving a healthy looking glow. But that’s not all, they also help fight cellulite, stretch marks and skin lesions after using them for 4 weeks or so!
BodyBoom coffee scrubs are produced and packaged in Poland and its natural ingredients are sourced from all over the world! BodyBoom scrubs are also cruelty free!
I love the way they come packaged, you can also seal them shut once you open them! They aren’t that expensive as you get a lot of product in them. And you don’t have to use so much at one go, a little goes a long way! There are different scrubs you can choose from as you can see above and there’s also an anti-cellulite body butter!
Today I will be sharing my thoughts on the Active Charcoal Coffee Scrub which is the one I have tried out so far. However, be sure to follow me on my Instagram, where I will share my thoughts on two other scrubs!!
I have been loving charcoal activated products lately! I have tried this twice as you can use the scrub 2 to 3 times per week. I applied the scrub in circular motions all over my body and left it on for 3 minutes. I hesitate to use these kind of coffee scrubs because of the mess they can leave. However, once rinsed off, the loose-grains easily disappeared. I think what I found maybe a little annoying is how I had to take out the product and the scrub going underneath my nails … but that’s me being picky!
After rinsing off the scrub and drying myself up, I loved how my skin felt! It felt so smooth and soft and silky, and it had a healthy glow to it!! This particular scrub came with a heavy coffee scent which fades away quickly. I guess if you aren’t a coffee scent lover maybe this isn’t particularly for you but if the scent of coffee doesn’t bother you or if you are a coffee lover, then you will surely love this!!
I love how now I have these body scrubs which are showing my body some love and helping my skin be more cleansed, moisturised and soft! I notice how its effects last as well! I cannot wait to try out the two other scrubs and enjoy their effects on my body!
Have you guys ever tried any coffee scrubs? Or any Body Boom ones? Let me know in the comments down below!
Thank you so much for reading! And thank you all for your lovely support!!
I also would like to thank BodyBoom Malta for these products!
It is a natural, anti-aging and rejuvenating mask that consists of iron magnetic particles, activated charcoal and a mixture of oils for a smooth, firm and radiant complexion.
The mask comes with a spatula to apply the face mask and not have to mess up your hands! And it comes with a magnet and magnet wraps to remove the mask.
It is 99% natural and suitable for all skin types!
Check out Biovène Barcelona’s website to get more information on the mask by CLICKING HERE and it retails for €25!
What should it do?
It helps in making the skin look radiant, leaving it tighter and more lifted.
It helps in giving the skin a toned and youthful look and helps remove impurities.
It also helps the skin become more purified, detoxified and gives vitality to the skin!
It helps in leaving the skin softer, re-energized and revitalized while also smoothing it out!
Finally it also gives out a more glowing complexion, and helps moisturise and hydrate the skin!
How to use …
After cleansing your face, use the spatula to apply a thin layer of the mask on your face avoiding the eye are and leave it on for 10 minutes.
Hold the magnet and wrap the sheets around the magnet. Then run it near the surface of the skin but do not press the magnet onto the skin. The magnet is powerful enough to grab the mask from the skin without being pressed on the skin!
After the mask is completely removed, rub out the remainder to infuse the ingredients into the skin and then apply your moisturiser.
My thoughts …
Ok so I was so excited to try out this mask because of its concept .. I mean a magnet that removes a mask is fun in itself!!
The application was not so bad, however, the spatula sometimes was removing pieces of the mask that I already had applied on my skin. Though applying this with your fingers is way more messier, therefore, better to just use the spatula.
I noticed that the removal of it gets better with every application. The first time I used the sheets with the magnet to remove the mask, things got messy. But then I found that whenever I had to move a sheet which had already pieces of mask that had been removed, I throw those bits away then attach it to the magnet again. Because when mask pieces get stuck on the magnet, it is a little bit of a hassle to remove!
Overall, I loved how this mask left my face! It was softer, smoother and it was glowing! My pores decreased in appearance and the mask did not irritate my skin whatsoever!
I would like to thank Biovène Barcelona once again for collaborating with me and giving me this lovely opportunity to try out their mask!!
Thank YOU guys for reading and for supporting my blog, and I will see you all in my next blog post!!
How are we all doing? I hope you’re all having an amazing week! Today’s blog post is all about skincare – specifically a Black Peel Off Mask! You can try it out by visiting https://kinocosmetics.com/and they also have a FB page too if you require more information – click here.
I have tried other peel off masks but this one is slightly different!
This is because the application needs a bit of preparation. Before applying it, you need to warm the tube for 3 minutes. And then squeeze it out of the tube and apply. Different no? I like leaving it on for 30 minutes and then rinse it off. I don’t find that I could peel it off.
This mask includes black active charcoal which helps with providing a deep cleanse to your skin. It helps absorb excess sebum and helps with fighting off formation of blackheads. It helps in providing radiant skin and a refined complexion.
My thoughts …
Personally I like how the mask leaves my skin feeling fresh, soft and gently cleanses out the impurities. My skin does look clearer and I have been using it for a month, applying it once a week.
However, I do not like how you cannot just go ahead and use it without warming the tube. And I find that you have to warm it for more than 3 minutes to get out more product, and you cannot really apply enough so that when it dries you can peel it off.
BUT I like how it isn’t difficult to remove, I simply rinse it off and dry my face. Just be careful when applying it as it may get messy!
Have you tried out this mask? If not, what do you think of it? Let me know in the comments down below!
Hope you are all doing well. I am hoping to come out with 3 NEW blog posts this week! So stay tuned and make sure to be following my blog to get notification emails of when I post a new blog post!!
Today’s blog post is all about a brand called Freshly Cosmetics. They recently released their brand in the UK and they have lots of skincare goodies for you to try out! I got the opportunity to test out something from them and I received the Antiox Facial Plan. I am so grateful for this opportunity and I would like to thank Freshly Cosmeticsso much!
I just would like to say that I love the packaging from how it was sent to the packaging of the products themselves!
I have been trying it out for 2 weeks and am happy with the results. Though, I have some good and bad notes to write about this plan.
What I like about it is that it is a 4 simple step plan which basically cleans, purifies and moisturises your skin. The products are made in a way which are simply and easy to use.
#1 You first would start with the Fresh Green Micellar Water and I simply get a round cotton pad and apply it all over my face. You could also spray it throughout the day on your face, to freshen up your skin!
This product helps hydrate your skin and interestingly contains an anti-stress extract, so for those going through their final exams at uni maybe this would help you and your skin relax!
The thing I don’t like about it is the scent, it’s just such a strong scent and to smell it in the morning, it’s just too much.
#2 Then you would use the Purifying Facial Tonic which again has a strong scent but not as much as the Micellar Water. Again I apply this with a cotton pad. I guess yes you would need some cotton pads for this Antiox Facial Plan!
This product helps hydrate, refresh and get rid of dust accumulated through the air. It simply helps remove the impurities and honestly I do feel my skin to be cleaner and softer after using this product. However, I noticed that it did make my skin feel a little sticky but I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing.
#3 The next product is something I never incorporated in my skincare routine and it is a Multi-Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. I loved applying this, reminded me of being in Science class and having a pipette! Just love that word!
I loved this, it brightened my skin and it gave it a glow! This serum helps to reduce, repair and prevent signs of ageing.
#4 The final product that you would use in this plan is the Multi-Antioxidant Facial Moisturiser. This can be easily applied evenly on your skin and you have to wait a minute or two so that the serum sets and absorbs before applying the moisturiser.
This moisturiser is a hydrating face cream that has antioxidants which helps hydrate your skin and again reduces skin stress.
This plan helps freshen,purifies and balances skin’s pH with lime, burdock and camomile extracts. Believe me the lime is noticeable. It helps with hydration and also includes vegan hyaluronic acid. It is dermatologically tested and suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
My final thoughts …
I noticed my skin to be brighter,fresher and had a lovely natural glow to it. However, I also noticed that as I was using these products both in the morning and in the evening, it was making my skin red. Therefore, I might have been having a reaction and so I only completed this plan for two weeks because it was too heavy for my skin and I have combination and sensitive skin.
I am now just using the serum as that was my favourite product from the entire plan and I am using it with my usual everyday skin routine.
They post to a lot of different countries. To my fellow Maltese followers, unfortunately they do not ship to Malta however, they do ship to England so you could use Send On or other ship it to services!
I am writing this from my room back home. And boy am I happy to be back! I hope you are all having a lovely week and I wish you all a lovely weekend!
Today’s blog post is all about a Pore mask which if you don’t know me yet, I despise my pores on my face. Unfortunately, pores are something common that show up on our skin. However, there are products that you can use to minimise your pores, one of them being the Incredible Pore Mask by MayBeauty UK.
I first cleanse my face with my face cleanser, currently I am using the Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel.
Then I apply the mask all over my face and leave the mask to dry for 30 minutes.
Once the wait is over, I rinse off the mask with warm water and my pores did actually seem to shrink in size. I liked the effect of this mask and cannot wait to keep trying it out to see if it continues to decrease my pores on my skin.
I prefer this mask over the Incredible Face Mask because it is easier to apply and also easier to remove as sometimes the other mask does not dry up in all places and it is a pain to remove if you cannot peal off those pieces which did not dry up!
However, I liked both the effects of these masks! If you would like to try out the Incredible Pore Mask for yourself, then you can enter this discount code keziapore30 and it will give you 30% off your purchase! Shipping is free worldwide and it also ships to Malta!
I really hope you enjoyed reading! I would love to know if you ever tried this mask before or if you tried other masks specifically for pores? Let me know in the comments down below!
Thank you for reading and thank you to MayBeauty UK for giving me yet another opportunity to promote their products!
I hope you are all doing well. This week I wrote a total of 3 blog posts and next week I am planning to write 2 more! So I hope you are enjoying my blog’s content!
Today’s blog post is all about ‘The Incredible Face Mask” by Maybeauty UK. I received some samples of this mask from MayBeauty and I have tried it out twice so it’s time for me write up a review about what I thought about this mask. Thank you so much to MayBeauty for sending out these samples!
The mask claims to clean the skin andremove impurities and dead skin cellsthat are stuck in your pores. The mask is absorbed by the skin, leaving a nice and smooth surface once the mask is peeled off.
Additionally, the mask removes Blackheads, prevents Acne and removes excess oil and sebum.
Once I had read this I was intrigued and excited to try it out.
How to use it …
Apply the mask on a dry face. I applied it with this brush that came with the samples. I found that this brush helped me apply this mask quite quickly! Be sure to NOT apply the mask on your eyebrows because it can remove facial hair!
Allow the mask to dry for 30-45 minutes – I love leaving it for the whole 45 minutes and love watching a tv show in the mean time. It is very relaxing.
Once it has dried up then you can start peeling the mask off your skin. You should notice that attached to the removed mask, their should be blackheads and dead skin cells on it. That will show that it did a good job!
Once you remove the mask, make sure to rinse it with some warm water and you should feel your skin soft and clean.
My thoughts …
So like I said I tried the mask twice and the application process with the brush I got helped me apply it quickly. However, I dropped a little in the sink, and it can get kind of messy, so be careful.
I like leaving it on for the entire 45 minutes and then I start peeling it away. I love peel off masks because they are not messy to wash off unlike clay masks. My first experience with this mask was kind of a little bit painful because when I removed the mask around my cheek area I did cringe a little because pulling it off was harsh and left my skin a little bit red but no other irritation. But the second time I applied it, it hurt less because I evened out the application across my face to have an equal layer all around.
Looking at the mask peeled off, I did find blackheads and dead skin cells attached to the mask so I knew it worked. My skin felt soft and clean and so clear after applying it for the second time! I will definitely be using the other samples I received because I loved the result!
How my skin looked after removing off the mask!
You could visit MayBeauty’s website to see some other products that they offer. There is a Face Gel, Pore Mask and even some hair products!!
And that’s today’s blog post! Are you intrigued to try this mask out? Let me know in the comments down below!
Again, I would like to thank MayBeauty for the samples!
