My visit to Lush: Fresh Farmacy soap

Hello ladies/gentleman 🙂 as both of you can use this product I am about to tell you about.

Now for those of you who follow me on my blog you may have seen me try to find products that stop my face breaking out in spots (the joys of being a teen/young adult).
Well I thought I would try the shop called Lush as I have heard a few people rave about how good they are in their for skin products, because a lot of their soaps and cleansers are natural for the face and do not contain preservatives.
The lady was very helpful I explained I get oily skin however I also have spot prone skin where I will get blind head spots (they do not come to a full spot but a lump under the skin) and I get very dry skin where the spot is.
She was very helpful and took my straight to a soap which isn’t proper soap she said, anyway the soap is called Fresh Farmacy.

 I had 106grams and that cost me £5.40, which may seem a lot but absolutely worth it.

The lady who served me demonstrated how well the soap works on the skin, she did say however that this soap can dry out your face therefore you will need to moisturise your face afterwards.  However it soothes the face therefor reducing those harsh spots and dry patches.

This is someone else showing you how the soap looks before applying to the face.

The soap does not work up into a huge lather which is what is meant to happen, anyway this was gently rubbed into my hand and then washed off, the results were amazing!
Now I wash my hands all the time because that has been drummed into me while doing my nursing but oh my god! This soap cleaned my hands so well they were white and my other hand looked dreadful, I couldn’t believe how much our skin retains.  My hand felt soft and looked healthier.

I have just used it tonight when I came home and I love it!
My face looked cleaner, my blackheads on my nose were nearly gone and my skin looked healthier, I did apply a cream that I was given as a tester just to re hydrate the skin, I believe the cream was called Vanishing cream which smelled of lavender which also made my skin feel gorgeous.

I am super excited to see how my skin looks like after a week and whether my skin settles.

If you are interested in results comment below or tweet me.
Definitely try this product huge thumbs up from me so far.

Remington Pearl Curling Wand.

Hello lovely people

I have been needing a curling wand for a while now as I used to use straighteners to curl my hair (it can be done) however I found my curls did not stay in all day even though I have naturally curly and wavy hair.  This curling wand I had from Christmas, and you can see more photos from my last post.

This curling wand was perfect as the barrel decreases in size which I find gives you a tighter and long lasting curl.  The curler has a heat setting up to 210 degrees, and comes with a heat protecting glove and case, which was shown in my previous post.

Below is a picture of my hair when complete.

I found these curls took 20-30 mins to do and I took an inch of hair and wrapped the root of my hair at the thickest end of the barrel to that  the ends were tighter.  I find if you do not want such a harsh curl all you have to do is not let the hair stay on the barrel for longer than 5-10 seconds.  But this hairstyle had to battle winds, rain and my godson all day, and they stayed like this, and never became loose.

I definitely recommend this to you as I did not even use hairspray, my hair is really thick which is probably why my hair has more volume, but if you have thin hair a bit of back combing and hairspray will help you achieve this look.

This is a super affordable price and well worth it 🙂

go and try for yourself.

If you want to know more details are above in the tabs bar on how to contact me.

Hope I was informative.
