Carbon Coco – Teeth Whitening – An Honest Review

Hi everyone, 

Hope you are all doing well! Today’s post is all about Teeth Whitening!

I am quite self conscious over my teeth as they aren’t straight at all. However, I do have very healthy teeth and I brush daily. 

Have I ever wanted to do braces? Yes, but due to financial reasons I couldn’t afford to do so for now. Maybe in the future I don’t know, but for the time being I have come to accept the appearance of how my teeth are.

Carbon Coco approached me a few weeks ago, and asked me whether I was interested in doing a review on their Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish and I accepted.

Carbon Coco sells a variety of items to keep those teeth of your white & clean! They are a 100% natural company and are animal cruelty free.

Their Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish helps remove plaque, keep your teeth and mouth clean and helps removes toxins in your body.

Therefore, besides whitening your teeth it also promotes for clean hygiene.

Carbon Coco also kindly sent me a brush along with the Whitener. I first dampened the brush with a little bit of water and dipped the brush in the charcoal. I then brushed my teeth for 3 entire minutes and then spat and rinsed my mouth. (You can watch the video to watch me brushing away and get a closer look of the end result!)

Besides the charcoal leaving some black coloured leftover around my teeth, I loved the product. I do believe that you have to use the product for a number of times especially if you have yellow stains but the end result is a good one.

I think that if you are interested in a cheap and safe alternative to whitening your teeth, then you should give Carbon Coco a go.

Favourite Spring Lipsticks 2017

Hi lip lovers, 

As you may know I am crazy about lip products! So if you have been following my Youtube channel and blog for a while you would know that I always do my favourite seasonal lipsticks!

And as Spring has just rolled in I had to do my Favourite Spring Lipsticks. However, this video was a collab with Daisy Taveras. You should really visit and support her channel as she does amazing makeup videos!!

My top 10 lipstick picks for this season are –

MAC Amplified Lipstick – Fast Play

IMG_8207fast play 1

I love this as it has such a lovely pink and creamy finish! Perfect lipstick for an everyday Spring Makeup Look!
Sleek Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream – Birthday Suit

IMG_8215birthday suit 1

This is such a gorgeous pink shade! I absolutely love this and the formula from Sleek!
Max Factor Velvet Matte Lipstick – Blush

IMG_8206blush 1

This is such a gorgeous fun pink to wear. It isn’t light or bright but just in between! I love the formula of these lipsticks too – they are so moisturising!
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Prague

IMG_8210prague 1

I love the Soft Matte Lip Cream’s from NYX! And this is quite similar to the shade Blush from before. However, this shade is more matte than the other and it is slightly darker!
Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Lipstick – Summer Lovin’

IMG_8211summer lovin' 1

This is an out there kinda’ pink!!! Something that is bold and fun to wear! Reminds me of Nicki Minaj! Nonetheless, you can rock this on a night out makeup look.
(EBAY DUPE) Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick – Double Date

IMG_8212double date

Even though this is a dupe it is still a pretty shade. I had to reapply it a couple of times to get the finished look. But then it settles nicely on the lips!
Essence Matt Matt Matt Longlasting Lipgloss – Shade 5

IMG_8213shade 5 1

This is such a gorgeous pinky red! I love the way it settles on the lips and it isn’t all that matte but has a slight sheen to it.
Milani Amore Matte Lip Cream – Amore

IMG_8214amore 1

I love the scent of these formula lipsticks! This pink red shade is just GORGEOUS! Wear some eyeliner and mascara and add this, and you’re good to go!
MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer – Sizzle

IMG_8216sizzle 1

This is a lovely burnt orange shade. I guess orange is a more autumnal colour however I like this for spring as it isn’t dark!
Golden Rose Liquid Lipstick – Shade 8

IMG_8208shade 8 1

This again is a lovely pink shade – very fun and bright!

Firmoo Glasses Honest Review

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all doing great!

Yesterday I uploaded a NEW VIDEO all about Firmoo and their GLASSES.

Screen Shot 2017-03-16 at 16.11.08

You could watch the entire video right here –

You could also get your own FREE pair of glasses and if you are a Youtuber and wish to collaborate with Firmoo you can do so by emailing Suzan on suzan@firmoo.com

Screen Shot 2017-03-16 at 16.10.52

They have a variety of glasses to choose from – with different shapes and sizes too!

You could order them with a prescription or without! There website is quite easy to follow and when filling in your details it is simple and straightforward. Even though I ordered my glasses with a prescription I am kind of worried that I filled it in incorrectly but that would be my mistake!!

Screen Shot 2017-03-16 at 16.10.40

However, the customer service is quite efficient and helpful! I really recommend you guys trying them out for yourselves!

Have you ever tried out glasses from Firmoo? If yes comment down below! And if you haven’t, are you intrigued to do so? 

Thank you so much for reading and watching!

Kind regards

ARAD Dead Sea – Black Mud Soap – Helps with Psoriasis

Hi everyone, 

Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday!

I wanted to come here and write up a small blog post all about the Black Mud Soap from Arad.

If you haven’t done so already, I regularly post reviews about products from Arad, and you can check the previous blog posts right here –

Also if you are Maltese you could also check out the Arad Dead Sea Malta Facebook Page!

Before starting the review I would like to share with you all that I have Psoriasis. It’s when the skin cells multiply up to 10 times faster than normal.

‘As underlying cells reach the skin’s surface and die, their sheer volume causes raised, red plaques covered with white scales.’

I usually get this on my scalp however, I now am getting this on the spine of my back. It is very irritating and if I do not use the correct products it only gets worse.

IMG_7705

Thankfully a product from Arad has calmed my psoriasis down. With that I am talking about this Black Mud Soap. This natural soap is enriched with minerals that helps in cleansing the skin and removing excess oils and dirt from your skin.

It is recommended for those who have normal to oily skin.

How do I use it?

17268913_10210796061870277_587152322_o

I do not use it every time but only every other time. Whilst waiting for the conditioner to set in my hair I apply this soap only to the regions whereby my skin is affected by Psoriasis; that is on my spine on my back. And I gently rub it onto it, leave it settle and then rinse it off. I then go ahead and shower as per usual.

My thoughts – 

17273486_10210796060110233_974433867_o

I find that this soap has helped calm down my psoriasis leaving my skin as normal as it can get!

For those of you who have Psoriasis, I know that it isn’t treatable but will stay with you for the rest of your life, so the only thing you can do is to keep it calm! And for that is the reason why I love this soap as that is what it does, it is so gentle on my skin and helps my skin breathe!

Have you ever tried this product or any other products from Arad? Comment down below would love to read your comments!

Happy Sunday and thank you for reading!

Sephora Makeup Haul + Reaching 2k subscribers on my YT Channel

Hi everyone!! 

So excited to share this with you!! 

I cannot believe I have reached 2k subscribers on my Youtube Channel – KezziesCorner!

I am truly so happy for everyone who has subscribed to my channel! 

SO THANK YOU EVERYONE!! 

Now, today as you know it’s Wednesday and therefore time for a NEW VIDEO!

I was so excited to go to my first ever Sephora when I went on holiday to Rome! I never had been so it was such a great feeling to be browsing in a Sephora shop!! We don’t get brands like Tarte, Benefit or Too Faced in Malta so I treated myself a little!

Here is a Sephora Haul from what I got when I went to Rome!

Products mentioned – 

Tarte – Tartelette in Bloom

17035841_10210687940167302_2117944743_o

17091134_10210687939007273_1130047664_o

17091002_10210687939847294_186432085_o

I love this eyeshadow palette! It has such gorgeous shimmery and matte shades! I actually got this off amazon prime as there wasn’t the brand Tarte in the Rome Sephora!
Too Faced – Too Faced Christmas In New York Holiday 2016 Collection

Grand Hotel Cafe – Limited Edition

This is such a cute palette set! I thought it was a great bargain to get! I have to be honest and say I haven’t yet tried out any of these palettes as I simply have others to try out! But alas I will have to try them out soon enough! One thing I must say and I am sure you are all aware about it – they come in such gorgeous scents!
Peppermint Mocha

Gingerbread Coffee

Eggnog Latte Eyeshadow Palettes

Better Than Sex Mascara

17036149_10210687940727316_720834106_o

I also got this Mascara in the set! I haven’t tried it out yet!
Too Faced – Born this Way Foundation

I haven’t tried out this foundation yet. I think I am too scared to open it as once I do I know I will love it and won’t stop using it!

Sephora – Face Masks

17091111_10210687939727291_754917924_o

I have heard so much about these masks. So far I have only used the Algae Mask and I left a review about it on my blog already – Sephora – Algae Face Mask ReviewSephora – Algae Face Mask Review
Sephora – Pearl Eye Mask
Sephora – Avocado Face Mask
Sephora – Algae Face Mask
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil

I love this brow pencil it applies so easily to my brows! Yes it was a little pricey but I guess for the brand, the packaging and the quality it was worth it!
Beauty Blender

17016190_10210687940527311_1278010801_o

OMG – I am in LOVE with this blending sponge! I never have tried this before and I have only used the Real Techniques Miracle Sponge. Now that is good but the Beauty Blender is just perfect! It truly does apply your makeup flawlessly !! Yes it was €18 but I think I will have to buy this again once this gets old!
Sephora – Triple Action Cleansing Water

17101223_10210687937847244_137788109_o

I don’t quite like this! It doesn’t come with a pump which I know, it’s the travel size one but they can do a mini pump with it! No harm would be done! But I don’t think it’s the best micellar water out there!

I really hope you enjoyed this blog post and the video! Have you ever tried any of these products? Comment down below!

Thank you so much for reading and watching my videos! Thank you so much for subscribing to my channel! And thank you also for following my blog!

My Favourite Winter Lipsticks

Hi everyone, 

How are you all doing? 

screen-shot-2017-02-15-at-20-52-44

I am so excited to be sharing with you this Youtube Video. As you know lip videos are my favourite ones to film. I have previously filmed my favourite seasonal lipsticks however, never did one for Winter until now!!

screen-shot-2017-02-15-at-20-52-51

So here are my favourite 10 lipsticks that are all reasonably priced as all of them are drugstore as I now have realised!!

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in Harmony

2

As you know I love the MUA Velvet Lip Lacquers. Even though they aren’t long last and need a constant re application especially when food or drink is involved, their range is great. They have so many shades in their collection including four new SPRING shades1!!

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Point Zero

1

This was one of the collaborations that Kathleen Lights did with Colourpop and of course I had to get my hands on it! I love the formula of their satin lips and this lip shade screams winter!! Kathleen also released a new set of three lipsticks with Colourpop called Aquarius Bundle!

Essence XXXL Longlasting Velvet Matte Lipgloss in Silky Red

6

The formula isn’t the best but the scent of this lipstick is AMAZING! I have only managed to get my hands on one of these shades from this range. I love the formula as it is very soft and creamy!

Focallure Matte Lips in Shade 03 Burnt Amber

5

I purchased these off Ebay and I love the range. They are a little patchy and a little bit sticky but when I apply some sort of lip moisturiser before hand it definitely helps!

3ina Lipstick Shade 102

8

3INA is a brand that we recently got in Malta, there are 3 branches and I love the shop and the way it is designed! I love their products, and they are well priced too! The only thing that I don’t like about this lipstick is the bullet is so annoying to apply with!

BH Cosmetics Bh Liquid Lipstick in Clara

3

I absolutely love the formula of these lipsticks! They dry to a matte perfect finish and they have the fastest drying formula that I have ever tried! They are also long lasting as well!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme in Copenhagen

9

I love the Soft Matte Lip Range from NYX  I think they have such a lovely range of shades! The scent that these lipsticks have is AMAZING!! I like this shade however you have to be so careful around it as it tends to get patchy!

HUDA Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Vixen – Ebay Replica

10

So I cannot lie and tell you that this is the original products but no it is a knock off from Ebay. And I was hesitant in trying these out but I did and actually like how the colour pay off truly is! They do have a scent to them not a chemically one as you would expect off ebay! They are a little patchy and need constant re application but apart from those factors I love this lipstick!

Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in Magnetic

7

The Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme’s are by far my favourite liquid lipsticks! They have the sweetest scents from all these lipsticks I have mentioned! They are not that long lasting but are so soft and creamy! They apply so well and smoothly across the lips !! The applicator is helpful in creating a precise shape onto your lips!

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Dominatrix – Ebay Replica

4

Again, this is a knock off and yes I did not want to spend all that money on the real thing, and was I happy with my decision? YES!! I love it. It is a little bit drying but again applying some moisturiser or lip balm before applying this lipstick definitely helps!! I love the shade it’s sort of a dusty mauavey brown and pink mixed together!!

I hope  you enjoyed this post!

What was your favourite lipstick and lip shade?

Thank you so much for reading!! 

Happy Wednesday!!

Arad Dead Sea Malta – Exfoliating Facial Gel Review

Hi everyone, 

I hope you are all having a lovely Saturday! 

Today I am here to share with you a product I have been using for the past 2 weeks!

As you all know I have been testing out products by Arad. You could visit the Arad Dead Sea Malta Facebook page right here – https://www.facebook.com/ARADMALTA/?fref=ts

I also have written previous reviews about other products and in my first post also gave a summary about the brand. You could check them out all right here –

Today I am reviewing the Exfoliating Facial Gel. I use it twice a week after I cleanse my face.

16522309_10210471400833954_859770819_o

What I like most about all these products is that they all contain such great ingredients which are a helpful factor towards gaining healthy, soft and smooth skin!

The Facial Gel’s formula is said to deeply cleanse your skin and leave it “smooth and supple.”

It contains Jojoba seed oil, which is a natural skin conditioning emollient that is empowered by the exfoliating apricot seeds found inside. So I am guess that these should help in getting your skin to be as soft and supple as can be!

16466358_10210471401393968_162375325_o

On the tube it says to apply over a wet surface however, what I do is I cleanse my face as usual then lightly dry it with a face cloth and immediately apply this exfoliant after.

I find that this way it is more effective and hopefully in this way the exfoliant is getting under my skin more and releasing it off any impurities.

I apply it with my finger tips and onto my skin and rub it gently in circular motions. I let it sit for a bit and then wash it and apply moisturiser and the rest of my skin routine as per usual.

16466694_10210471404954057_248249715_o

What I do NOT like about this exfoliant is the little bits it has in it. I find it hard to rinse them off and even as I am applying my moisturiser they are still there.

Apart from them, I like using this exfoliant to freshen up and smoothen my face.

However, I have to add that the Arad Facial Mud Mask leaves my skin way softer than the Exfoliant Facial Gel.

Have you ever tried this product or any other Arad Product?

Thank you so much for reading!

Love Kezia
