Origins Super Spot Remover

Hey Guys,

On my quest for the best spot treatment, I recently purchased the Origins Super Spot Remover. Fellow bloggers have raved about how good it is.  I must admit, I have always been put off buying this as it costs £12 for such a small bottle. I didn't think it was good value. But after reading the reviews I decided to go for it. 

It claims to heal, fight and fade spots/blemishes fast. As it contains Salicylic Acid it instantly helps speed healing while anti-spot technology helps visible correct post blemish darkening. This ticks 2 boxes that I want a spot treatment to do. It helps fade blemish marks and helps spots disappear.

I've had two cyst type spots on my jaw and neck that I've had for a couple of weeks. I've tired everything to make them disappear but nothing has worked. I thought this would be the perfect time to test out the Origins Spot Remover. I did my usual routine, cleansed, toned and moisturise, then I put a dap of the gel onto my spots.

Now I have to be honest, I wasn't holding out much hope but when I woke the next morning the cyst type spots had gone down in size and redness. I couldn't believe it. After trying so many treatments to make them disappear I had finally found something that worked.

Now I'm not saying that this makes spots disappear completely, but it defiantly makes them less angry looking and less smaller.

I can fully understand why bloggers rave about this. I can't believe its taken me so long to jump on the band wagon :)

Have you tired Origins Super Spot Remover and what have you thought? Let me know :) xx

Glossybox - June Edition

Hey Guys,

Its that time again when you get a lovely parcel through the post. Its Glossybox time!! :)

I always get excited when I get home and see this little box waiting on the side. I don't even say hi to anyone. I open it straight away.

So what was in my Glossybox this month?

Glossybox Serie Exclusive Pro Beauty Brush - RRP: £15.00 - I do like a Make-Up brush so this will fit in nicely to my current collection. Think this will make a nice blusher brush.

HD Brows Precision Tweezers - Fullsize - £19.95 - At the moment I currently have Tweezerman tweezers and they do the job nicely but these seem to be the same sort of quality. Always read and hear really good reviews about HD products so looking forward to using these.

BM Beauty Summer Warmth Bronzer - Fullsize - £8.00 - I haven't ever used any BM products so this is a new one for me. I have also been looking for a bronzer so this kills 2 birds with 1 stone. I get to try a new Make-Up brand and I have a bronzer. Win win!

Caudalie Eaux Fraiches - Fullsize £26.00 - Big fan of Caudalie products so very happy with this. I got the Zeste De Vigne fragrance. It has a lovely smell. Very fresh and summery. Great to carry round in your handbag.

Vichy Dermablend Ultra-Corrective Foundation Cream Stick - Fullsize £19.00 - Now this is what I am most excited about. I have been looking at purchasing this foundation stick for the past week to help cover my acne scares/blemishes but wasn't really too sure about the shade. With the starter kit sample I received I get to try all 6 shades!! Can't wait to start using this. Fingers crossed its a winner.

What do you think of my Glossybox treats? I am really impressed with the products this month. I think so far this has been the best box for me this year.

Did you get anything nice in your Glossybox this month? Let me know :) xx

What to buy with my No7 Voucher

Hey Guys,

Hope everyone is having a good week? Really wish the weather would improve. Hate all this rain :(

Its that time again when Boots are handing out the £5 off voucher on No7 products. I've never really bought any No7 products before so when I get given these I always struggle to use them. At the moment I have 4 vouchers and this time I'm determining to use them.

After looking online and in store at the No7 counter, I've seen afew products that I think might be worthy of me spending my voucher. These are;

No7 Poppy King Lip Crayon - Raindrops Collection
 £11.50. With voucher £6.50
No7 Beautifully Balanced Purifying Cleanser for Oily/Combination Skin
                                        £8.00, With voucher £3.00 

No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Water for Normal Oily Skin
£9.00. With voucher £4.00

No7 Stay Perfect Eye Mouse
£9.00. With voucher £4.00

Would do you think of these No7 products? Have you used any of them and would you recommend them? Let me know :) xx

Recent Purchases

Hey Guys,

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend? Can't believe how much the weather has changed in the past couple of weeks. The other week we were having lovely sunny days and now you can't go out without ending up looking like a drowned rat!!!

So to cheer myself up because of all the bad weather, I have treated myself to afew little treats.

Estee Lauder Daywear Oil-Free Moisturiser - I love the non oil-free version of this moisturiser but as I have oily/combination skin, it didn't really do anything for my skin. When I saw that they had released an oil-free version I knew I had to have it. 

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Oil Free - This is a product I've had on my wish list for a while. It is quite expensive and alot more than I would normally pay for a primer but its gets such good reviews and awards its something that I knew I had to have. 

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser Oil Free - As its getting towards summer and hopefully nice sunny weather, I don't really want to wear a full face of  foundation. After reading reviews on what tinted moisturiser was best this came out top. And being oil free its perfect for me.

Garnier Pure Active Spot-On Roll-On and Origins Super Spot Remover - I've been experimenting recently on different spot treatments. These are the latest ones to add to my collection. The Garnier Spot-On Roll-On claims to help fight spots and fade marks. The Origins Super Spot Remover always gets good reviews from other bloggers so I thought I would give it a go. Plus it comes in a cute little bottle :)

MUA Love Heart Lip Balms - When I first saw these released afew months back I wanted them straight away. Unfortunately, every Superdrug I went into never ever had them. Finally when I was in Manchester the other week I popped into Superdrug and there they were. I think I actually ran, picked them up and went straight to the till. Only trouble is I think they are too nice to use!!!

What do you think of my recent purchases? Have you used any of them? Let me know :) xx

Bioderma Solution

Hey Guys,

After reading so many blogs rave about the Bioderma solution I thought I would try it out myself and see what the fuss was all about.

One of the main reason's why I wanted to give this ago was that I want to try and improve my skincare routine. Usually to remove my Make-Up I just use the Simple face wipes. I know some people will think this is the worse thing ever and I can understand where they're coming from but I just find them quick and easy to use. I do feel that these don't really bring anything to my skincare routine so I am willing to try out new products and improve my skin.

Now instead of going for the Bioderma solution with the pink top which alot of people have gone for, this is the one suitable for sensitive skin, I decided to choose the Bioderma solution with the green top which is suitable for combination or oil skin. As I wasn't too sure how my skin would react to this I decided to get the 100ml size as a tester. I ordered this from ebay for £8.25, which included postage. I can't recommend this ebay seller enough. I ordered this on a Friday and by Monday I had the product in my hands.

What it claims
Bioderma innovation, Sébium H2O gently cleanses the skin without drying it, through the micro-emulsion of impurities and excess sebum.
How to use
Soak a cotton pad with Sébium H2O and cleanse your face. Repeat the application until the cotton pad remains clean.
What I think
All I can say is WOW. I can see why people love this. Its absolutely amazing. I started using this the night I got it and the next morning I could see an improvement in my skin. I've had a couple of spots that have been under the skin for a while and since using this they have disappeared. It usually takes about 3-4 cotton pads to remove all my Make-Up. Once I have removed my Make-Up my skin feels so clean and refreshed. My skin glows. I have definitely been converted from using facial wipes. Once I have used my 100ml version I  will be buying the 500ml bottle without hesitation.

If you haven't tried any of the Bioderma solutions then you must. I can't recommend them enough :) xx

May Favourites

Hey Guys,

Hope everyone is enjoying the start of the 4 day break? Just a shame that the lovely sunny weather has gone :(

Here are my favourite products for May

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Stress Control 3-in-1 daily cleansing lotion - This used to be a staple in my skincare routine last year and I don't know why I stopped using it. For the past few months my skin has been up and down. Since I have started using this again my skin has calmed down alot and I only get afew spots now compared to what I was getting. A must have for blemished prone skin. 

Simple rapid action spot zapper - When I got get a spot this is my go to spot treatment.I apply this to the spot on a night and by morning is has reduced in size and made the redness has disappeared. And as its a Simple product its kind to your skin wrong dry it out.

MAC Select Cover Up Concealer - I have been experimenting with different concealers recently but have found myself going back to my reliable MAC concealer. Its light-weight, provides good coverage and easy to blend. I actually feel guilty for trying to replace it. This concealer is now back in my Make-Up bag.

Estee Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizing and Advanced Night Repair - Really can't explain how since using this two products they have improved the condition of my skin. I feel that if I don't use these my skin actually misses them. I will be doing a more in depth review of these soon so keep a look out for that. They are definitely worth the money.
