Skincare Haul! Mario Badescu Skin Care Products

Hello!

My skin has been so bad lately.. until I discovered Mario Badescu! I am telling you, why didn’t I discover this range sooner?!

I decided to write a post about recent purchases and decided to put one up to do with skincare as I suffer from acne.

Below is what I think of the Mario Badescu as my first impression, also links to purchase these items..

Mario Badescu

AHA BOTANICAL BODY SOAP

– I suffer from acne on my shoulders it’s so embarrassing but I’ve noticed that my breakouts are becoming less. I’ve used this product for a month, also my skin feels softer and smoother in texture, and it smells floral which I love. I use this every single day without fail and I still have half a bottle left.

ACNE FACIAL CLEANSER

– If I’m completely honest, although the cleanser has improved the texture of my skin on my face my breakouts are still present, but slightly reduced. I’ve only been using the product for a month so of course I’ll continue to use it and I’ll see what my over all conclusion is. I suppose because it says ‘Acne facial cleanser’ I’m expecting a quick fix to my skin becoming clear, but it’s a process.

DRYING CREAM

– THIS IS HOLY GRAIL. As soon as I have a spot or an area that has broken out, I put the drying cream on and the next day the area is so reduced and not even inflamed, it’s insane! I love this. The only downfall is the cream comes in a tiny tub. You don’t get a lot of product however, a little goes a long way. The cream is thick and does not irritate the skin. If you do have dry skin I would be careful using this product. I normally use this cream on the night. Mario Badescu,please make a larger tub of product for me! I will pay extra.

SPECIAL CLEANSING LOTION O

– I like the smell of this lotion but I’m not completely excited about this. I think my major put of is that it has talc in and also, although it smells nice and definitely makes my skin softer after using the cleansing lotion, I feel like this hasn’t changed my skin dramatically.

DRYING MASK

– Similar to the drying cream, you use this 1-2 times a week and can use this on your back, chest, shoulders too which is great. This really does dry everything up, so I definitely recommend an oil-free cream after using this mask. Your skin will feel so soft in the morning especially if you use a toner after you use the drying mask.

OIL FREE MOISTURISER SPF 30

– When I first seen the bottle I was like no, this product is going to be gone in a week, but when I used it a small amount goes a long way. I used a pea sized amount and that covered my entire face and my neck, and I used a medium thick dot to cover my chest, back and shoulders. You don’t need to use a lot at all. The cream feels so lovely, not greasy at all (of course cause its oil free), my skin feels so soft. It’s similar to the Neutrogena oil free grapefruit moisturiser, but a notch better

ENZYME CLEANSING GEL

– the consistency is thick and feels so soothing on your skin. I used this cleansing gel on my face and my skin felt so smooth afterwards! I’m excited to see if it makes any difference to my Skin overtime with consistent use.

BUFFERING LOTION

– When I look in direct sunlight I always see small bumps under my skin and it drives me insane. I try to get rid of them which causes damage to my skin and I end up breaking it because the spot hasn’t surfaced. When I saw the buffering lotion which is for under surface bumps I couldn’t even contain my excitement. You have to shake before you apply, the texture feels almost greasy, but then it dries on your skin. It doesn’t feel uncomfortable.

GLYCOLIC FOAMING CLEANSER

– Recommended to use 1-2 a week so that you don’t damage the skin. My skin felt so amazing after using this, I love the fact it foams up. I will have to continue using this to see a complete change in my complexion.

WHITENING MASK

– Because of the years of acne especially on my shoulders I bought this to see whether this will eventually begin to lighten the pigmentation that I’m left with. It’s easy to cover my face with makeup but I’m so self conscious of my scars I never wear certain tops because of it. Now it’s under control (that’s to some of these products) I thought I can start to use this mask to lighten the pigmentation. I haven’t noticed a significant difference but I’ll update this post in a few months time

DRYING LOTION

– When I received this in the post it was all mixed together and was a pale pink colour. I was like is this off? Cause online it looked different. When I left it to stand and saw it it was separated and looked like how it was presented in the picture. There’s pink clay at the bottom and it’s important that you leave it to stand and not shake it before application. You apply by dipping a cotton bud into the bottle and applying the clay to surface spots. Don’t make the mistake of not listening to the bottle when it says “don’t apply to broken skin” I recently sabotaged a spot in the day so when I applied the clay on the night it stung but the next day it’s completely gone along with the surface spots I applied the clay with, and that was using it for one night!

So, yes I’m so in love with Mario Badescu I just don’t know why I didn’t discover this before!

I’m thinking to update my skin reaction in a few months time so I can see whether this is really helping my skin or is it giving me false hope, but so far these products are amazing.

Let me know what you think of Mario Badescu Products, what else do you recommend for acne prone skin and scars?

Love,

Finding Your Inner Peace

It’s easy to get angry about situations, in fact it’s easily done we’re all humans but sometimes you need to pick the right moment when it’s appropriate to react, or whether the situation is even worth it.

I feel like the way to find your inner peace is to first, truly find yourself. Truly discover what you like, what makes you happy and keep learning things about yourself. You’ll be shocked with what you discover, it could be the smallest things that have an impact on your happiness. Such as a clean, tidy room. A fragrance, the style of a room, a book, a type of music that you love. The list goes on.

By identifying what makes you happy, you will know what to draw yourself towards, and by making yourself happy especially in your own home and for example getting excited about going home to read that book you’ve fell in love with, your energy is already happy and uplifted because you have something to look forward to, something to enjoy.

Hopefully you will get to a point in life where all you want is to be at peace, be happy 80% of the time. Of course it’s not possible to be happy 100% of the time. We’re humans we have these emotions, but see past what the situation is, look deep into it. For example..

My dad, I used to have so much anger in the way he deals with situations. How he just works and comes home and there’s no further communication. And that was his role in the family home but I wasn’t satisfied. He wouldn’t be aware of what each of us was doing and the only one that seemed to care would be my mum. Unless we needed help finanally or something very serious was happening he wasn’t involved and this was a man who lived with us. I now have a depth of understanding why he is the way he is, not giving him an excuse, but the way he was bought up and the effect his peers and family had on him made him tough. The mindset “you have to just get on with it”. So I now understand why he is the way he is.

My main point to my example is look deeper into the situation not just see it black and white. There’s a reason why people or situations occur, because of the individuals personal values and beliefs, and their own justifications as to why the outcome has turned out to be.

There’s no point getting angry over situations which you can’t change. Talking about the issue and letting go of this held in anger, will help relieve your feelings, but being angry and acting upon that anger won’t be damaging anyone other than yourself (and perhaps others around you).

If there’s someone in your life that makes you angry, upset or makes you feel bad in whatever way, if it’s possible the best way to deal with this is to distance yourself so you’re not taking in their negativity and their negative energy. As I’ve wrote in similar posts it’s hard to do this if they’re family, but whether they are or not you need to be and feel uplifted by those around you and if that means cutting them out of your life then so be it.

Once you begin to feel happier and uplifted 80% of the time, anyone or anything that disrupts this, you will notice instantly and you may be strong enough to distance yourself straight away because of the high you get from being happy.

Just remember this is your life, be selfish if you need to (but in a good way), make yourself happy and don’t feel bad if you don’t want people in your life who drain you or play victim about things but don’t want to change their life for the better.

Another way to find your inner peace is to practice meditation. I used to roll my eyes when meditation got bought up cause I didn’t see how sitting there in silence and being still can possibly help you. But it changes your brain the more you meditate which you can read about it here, and you feel more relaxed, and can let go of all the stresses that you’ve had to deal with during the day.

Find time to meditate even if it’s once a day for 5 minutes, if you do this everyday you’ll get better and focusing and silencing your overactive brain. It’s so effective especially if you over think, you’re gaining control over your body. If you’re unsure how to start meditating here are some beginner guides.

Do your research on the law of attraction and how positive thinking can really change your mind. It’s positive and will make you feel so much better. I love to think that ‘we’re spirits having an human experience’ so whatever vile situation comes up, depending on what it is, of course it’s natural to feel negative and be angry about the situation, but within two days or a few days later things resolve 9/10 of the time so it’s always wasted energy when I get angry, and also I’m feeling calmer much sooner than holding a grudge about whatever’s happened.

I hope you discover your inner peace and feel much happier.

Lots of love,

Make Your Eyes Look Brighter!

My eyes look completely different when I don’t wear makeup and that’s because I always aim for my eyes to look awake and brighter which I feel can be enhanced greatly with makeup.

Here are my tips for brighter, awake looking eyes!


CONCEAL!

Use a concealer that is 1 or 2 shades lighter than your skin tone.

I love liquid based concealers because they seem to dry better and don’t feel as greasy or cakes on my skin but go with whatever you feel works for you! I’m currently using Maybelline eraser eye concealer.

Depending on how bad my under eye circles are I sometimes conceal underneath my foundation, and if I’m satisfied that’ll be fine or I conceal underneath foundation then top it up again on top of foundation then I blend with face powder

Conceal under your eyes strobing outwards almost in a v shape or triangle, so that the concealer isn’t just sitting under your eyes, under your eyebrow and on your eyelids to make the eye area appear brighter. Blend this in so that you can’t see any creases and lines.

HIGHLIGHT

Highlighting your brow bone and in the corners of your eyes can make your eyes look so much brighter.

I use a light coloured highlighter from the too faced chocolate bar palette called ‘champagne truffle’. I sometimes use benefit’s high beam highlighter which is liquid form, and sometimes I use both depending on how much highlighter I want to use.

USE A FLESH COLOURED EYELINER

I’ve been doing this step for years and it definitely makes a difference, I can’t not do this anymore when I’m not wearing makeup.

I use a flesh coloured eyeliner – Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner in Nude – and I line my waterline and sometimes I tightline also using this colour.

I’m not sure why but my eyes look so awake when I also tightline using the nude, better than if I tightline using a darker colour.

CURL YOUR EYELASHES

Curling your eyelashes DOES make a difference! Once you do it you will be addicted.

I curl my eyelashes before I apply mascara and I hold the eyelash curlers on for 10 seconds then release.

I then apply mascara evenly and then wait for that to dry, then I curl them a few times after and apply more mascara if I need to.

You won’t believe the difference it makes to your eyelashes by curling them. It really makes your eyes look wider.

You can get an eyelash curler from any drugstore.

MASCARA

A good mascara matters because you want the application to be even, not heavy and you don’t want clumpy eyelashes.

The best mascara I’ve ever used would be benefit’s they’re real and this made my eyelashes so long without curling them.

Another good mascara I’ve used would be the L’Oréal Miss Manga which was amazing. L’Oréal have a great range of mascaras, I’ve also used the million lashes and the false lash superstar mascara.

WINGED EYELINER (OPTIONAL)

Sometimes winged eyeliner can make people’s eyes look more open or can make your eyes look smaller depending on how you do your eyeliner.

I try and do mine evenly making sure I don’t wing it out too thick. I also find it easy to use an eyeliner liquid pen although it’s annoying when the tip turns weird or it appears to have run out.

At the moment I’m using maybelline precise liquid eyeliner it’s amazing.

Practice makes perfect with winging eyeliner and tape is amazing to use if you’re a beginner! (See tape tutorial here)

I feel like if I line my eyelids close to the corners my eyes appear smaller I’m not sure why, but if I line from the middle and outwards, they look more awake.

Where Have I been?

I haven’t blogged in a couple of months due to problems in my private life also getting used to university.

At the time I thought getting my self back to normality and sorting out my problems was far more important than blogging, as you know my favourite posts are to write about positivity to uplift people, but as I wasn’t uplifted myself I couldn’t possibly write authenticity.

Now things are going back to normal and I’m getting the hang of university I want to dive back into what I love the most, which is writing posts that are meaningful and to help other people, also I want to write reviews on products of tested and tried, I want this blog up and running again!

All my apologies for my lack of use on social media and on WordPress, also my lack of showing interest to other bloggers, I simply was not ready to begin blogging nor did I have the time as a lot of things were happening at once.

Thanks,

Love

Mommy Tag!

I was tagged by the lovely Rebecca, who has an amazingly beautiful blog. Go and check her out!

Here are the questions:

• Are you a stay at home mum or a working mum?

At the moment I’m a stay at home mum but I’m studying a degree at university so I wouldn’t like to work at the moment as half my week is filled with uni.

• Do you co sleep?

Yes! I used to feel guilty because everyone would say to me ‘he’ll be in your bed when he’s 15!” As banter but I’ve educated myself with co-sleeping. When he’s 3 I’ll try and get him into his own bed and see how he gets on. I breastfeed so co-sleeping is so much easier to feed and it’s amazing in the morning when he’s trying to give me kisses and pokes my face to get me to wake up.

• Would you have it any other way?

No I love Ky it’s hard at times but I couldn’t imagine life without him

• What is your one must have item for your child?

Food honestly i know every child needs food, but I’m telling you when he’s hungry he kicks off major so I need at least something he can munch on.

• How many kids do you plan on having?

I would love to have a big family, I’d love to have 4/5 children, but because my sons dad has no involvement I’m worried if my son will feel like the odd one out if I was to have more children with his future ‘step dad’, so I have mixed feelings whether I want more or not..

• Date Night? How many nights/days do you go out?

Single at the moment but my mum watches Ky every Friday, so I can just chill at home or make plans with friends but if I’m honest I’m loving these chilled nights in bed watching animal documentaries 😂

• Your child’s favourite show?

he Night Garden

• Name one thing you bought before you had your child and never used it?

I would say bottles, I’ve only tried using bottles a few times but he’s refused them even now I’ve Night weaned him from breast he took the bottle for two weeks now he’ll go to sleep without the milk or bottle because he doesn’t like the bottle, it’s weird.

• Your child’s favourite food?

Chicken and seasoned cous cous

• How many cars does your family have?

None

• Dream holiday with your child?

I’d love to take him skiing when he’s older and to go on the Polar Express

• How has your life changed since your child has been born?

I feel like I’ve realised that I don’t know it all and I’m not as wise as I thought I was and that this is an amazing experience and to embrace it. I’d say I’m definitely more sensitive now I have a child, I cry at everything and I feel like I’m more confident at speaking to people.

• Finish the following sentence… ‘It makes my heart melt to see…

My boy pick up things I teach him and when he dives on me for hugs and kisses. It actually makes me emotional!

• Where do you shop for your child?

I shop in next, Zara for his coats and Primark.

• Favourite make up and skincare product?

At the moment I’m loving esteé Lauder double wear foundation I’m obsessed! Urban decay, maybelline, NYX and L’Oréal.

For skin care I’m loving garnier products lately and skin care from Holland and Barrett’s as they’re natural based products.

• Huggies or pampers?

ampers all the way!

• Have you always wanted a child?

es! People would say to me you’ll be a mum at 16. I’ve always seen myself becoming a mum.

• Best part about being a mum?

ow much love you have for your child and how much love they have for you. I also love the different stages you get to see. I love everything about the development and helping your little one be the best version of themselves possible.


I’d love to tag:

Drugstore Haul! Boots UK

I’ve needed new makeup for ages so I decided to go crazy and order some new products online which was a gamble remembering shades and just taking a wild guess!

I love Boots I practically live in there. I’ve got a Boots advantage card and sometimes they do deals, for example they buy 1 get one half price on Maybelline products and 3 for 2 on L’Oréal Products.


Here’s what I ordered:

L’Oréal Infallible 24H Matte foundation

• L’Oréal infallible 24H Matte Primer

• L’Oréal Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara

I’ve tried out the foundation before and I fell in love with it, I was using Maybelline Matte and Poreless for a while but it didn’t agree with my skin, so I decided to go back to Infallible.

I’ve also tried the mascara years ago and I loved how wide it made my eyes, and how lovely and long my eyelashes looked.

The Infallible primer is new and I can’t wait to see the results properly. I’ve tried this product twice and I love how it feels on my skin and my makeup lasts a long time. I have oily skin, so Matte products are my favourite, using the primer and foundation together has left my skin Matte all day (however I haven’t worn this product for longer than 7 hours) so I will need to wear this a few more times to see if I still love it.

NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer

• NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray

I’m really impressed with the concealer, I’ve only used it twice like the L’Oréal primer, but the coverage is amazing.

Again, the setting spray is also new and I’ve only used it a couple times. I’m impressed so far and like I said above, Matte is my favourite because my skin is oily. So far so good, I’ve read up on reviews and they seem amazing, I can’t wait to try this out for a long amount of hours to see how well it keeps my makeup in place.

Maybelline Super Stay Powder

• Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner

The super stay powder is amazing and I love how it makes my skin look flawless after I apply my foundation and concealer. I like the fact it’s waterproof and I’m lucky that the shade Sand wasn’t too dark for my skin!

The master precise liquid eyeliner is amazing! I love pen liquid eyeliner I find it easier to apply, with this I get to build up my eyeliner by starting off thin and I’m able to thicken the like to however I like.

• Curls Unleashed Coconut & Avocado Curl Smoothie

First time ordering this product as I couldn’t find the Cantu Hair product. This smells delicious, and I love how my curls look defined with this product. It also works well in my sons hair (I only apply a little)


So far I’m happy about the products I’ve ordered but I’ll have to see how well the products last on my face during long hours.

What’s your favourite drugstore products?

Love,

Louise oxoxo

Blogging Tips For Beginners

I’ve been blogging for a year and a half now and I thought it would be good to give you some of my tips that I do to keep my blog active and interesting.


• SCHEDULE POSTS

I never used to schedule posts in fact I really didn’t know how to use wordpress properly. I would make posts as I go and be done with it. Making posts and then scheduling them for the whole week, or every two days, weekly however much times you would like to post on your blog, will show readers that you’re active and your views will be stable.

Before I did this, my views would be great one day and then the next day because I hadn’t posted, I would have none.

• ADD PICTURES TO YOUR POSTS

it spices things up. You can kind of get away with not adding pictures if it’s a brief blog post but if it’s long, it will keep viewers more interested if there’s pictures.

It makes blog posts less boring. You can always get pictures from Pinterest (as long as you link or note that the pictures you’re using are not your own and you note the author) or take your own pictures.

• CREATE SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS

My blog didn’t boom what so ever until this year when I joined twitter. I have mentioned a few times about how amazing twitter has been!

I didn’t want to join twitter or Instagram because I was scared that someone I know would find my blog but now I’m so confident in my blog, I don’t care and the support I’ve got from both platforms has been insane.

Make sure when you join Instagram, twitter, tumblr, LinkedIn (you don’t have to join ALL of those but it’s great because you share your content on there) you use the same name or similar to your blog so that people know it’s you. Also post frequently on there which can be challenging when you’re also juggling posting actively on the blog but there’s apps like Crowdfire & Buffer which help you schedule tweets.

I use Crowdfire it’s amazing. You can create your own automessage to send to new followers which you can then link your socials and blog and it also lets you unfollow people who aren’t following back, you can also follow people who are interested in what your blog is about. For example on Crowdfire it says “keyword follow” you put in keywords such as “beauty” “parenting” keywords that describe your blog and then people on twitter will come up who have used them keywords, so you can follow them which means they’ll be more than likely interested in checking out your page.

• TAG APPROPRIATELY

The use of tagging is important because it’s how people find you online.

For example my post to do with Nu Skin Toothpaste, my tags are ‘nu skin whitening toothpaste Review’ and that post has received so many views from google because ive tagged it correctly and people who will be searching for a review online will be directed to my page.

Make sure you tag properly so if you’ve wrote a review on a beauty product you could put ‘foundation review for oily skin’ or if you’ve wrote a post on tips for dealing with anxiety ‘how to deal with anxiety’ it will make it easier for people to be directed to your page.

• WRITE DOWN YOUR IDEAS

Every blogger goes through a stage where they don’t know what to write. A good thing that’s helped me is if I’m doing something throughout the day and I just think of a title I will write it down in drafts and write the content later or add to it during the week.

It’s normally at night where my mind will spill out all these ideas and I’ll honestly just write titles in my drafts and then add to them during the week.

Some people even get a bloggers diary, which seems amazing to keep organised.

• GET INVOLVED WITH OTHER BLOGS

Its so fun and lovely to read other people’s blogs and it’s nice to build a supportive network of people.

By doing this you’re also seeing what they post about and maybe you’ll be inspired, and by commenting and following you will also show that you’re active, which will make other bloggers & readers want to view your page.

It’s nice to show support to other bloggers!

• BE HONEST AND OPEN WITH READERS

I find that being honest and open and not pretending that your perfect will attract more views and followers. It’s because you can connect and relate to people who are also in the same situation or have something in common with you.

Write honestly and write as if you’re talking to your friend (but of course with punctuation!) this will also make you feel comfortable and words will just flow, and readers will also feel comfortable reading your content.

• MAKE OR GET YOURSELF A LOGO/HEADER MADE

Having a header for your blog will make it seem more official.

There’s an amazing lady who makes headers for £3 and she also makes media kits for £5. Her email address is: Katiescornerblog@outlook.com and she’s also on twitter. She’s incredibly talented and will design however you like her to. Do be patient if you do request a header from Katie as she has a lot of requests but she will get round to replying to your email.

If you would like to experiment, I used to make my own by using an app called MocaDeco and I still use this to make my feature pictures for my posts.


I hope this has been some use to you, please email me or drop me a message on twitter or Instagram if you would like some tips for blogging, I’d be happy to help.

Love,

Louise oxoxo
