How To: Use a Dermaroller

Posted on June 30, 2015

How To: Dermaroller
One of my main skin concerns is acne scarring.  While the acne problem seems to have calmed down, it can be a bit disheartening to still have the appearance of an acne filled face, without even having a single spot.  I decided to try something a little bit different and picked up a dermaroller to see if it could sort out my problems and I can honestly say, I'm overwhelmed by the results.  Here's a little bit more about the roller and how to use it.

Joan Collins Timeless Beauty
Do you ever watch old movies where the beautiful hollywood actresses put on their makeup in the most beautiful looking packaging and feel a little jealous?  It definitely doesn't quite compare to the cheap, plastic packaging we're used to.  Now you can get a little taste of glamour with the gorgeous range of makeup from the Joan Collins Timeless Beauty collection.

Nails Inc The Thames
If there's one colour that's underrated in the nail polish world, it's grey.  While it might not seem all that exciting, it's one way to go neutral without going the traditional clear/pale pink route.  While I do have a few grey's in my collection, one that I've been loving recently is Nails Inc The Thames.  Here's what I think of it.

Bronzers For Pale Skin

Posted on June 23, 2015

Summer Bronzers: NARS Laguna, clarins Graphic Expression Face & Blush Powder, Benefit Hoola, Sleek Contouring Blush Palette
As someone who is very pale, I've always thought I could never use bronzers.  From seeing girls at school using those pots of bronzing pearls and loading up the fake tan, it was never for me and I accepted being pale.  Now I feel that there are many more options for us pale skinned ladies, I braved the bronzing makeup sections and found some products I couldn't live without.  Here's some bronzing options for pale skin.

Aussie Shower Smoothie Body Wash
I've been a fan of Aussie haircare for a long time.  Over the years I've tried many of their shampoos and hair masks so when I found out they were branching out into body wash I was very intrigued.  Although these have been out for a while, it's only now that I've decided to give them a go and see how they perform.

Barry M Sunset Nail Paint in Fuchsia Generation

Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing Nail Paint in Fuchsia Generation
I'm not one to buy a ton of nail shades at once, I tend to dip my toes in the water with one shade then once I'm hooked I go back for more!  After being really impressed by You Drive Me Navy, I decided that I had to pick up another shade in the form of Barry M Sunset Nail Paint in Fuchsia Generation.
