THE BENEFITS OF STRAWBERRIES

Hey lovelies hope you are all well.

I LOVE strawberries especially dipped in chocolate, but I also love that strawberries can also be used within your beauty regime instead of just being a part of a diet. Strawberries are beneficial for many things from weight loss, skin, hair and teeth.

Strawberries are amazing to whiten your teeth…yes to whiten your teeth! The acid in the strawberry brightens, whitens and removes stains from your teeth. All you need to do is mash the strawberry up with a fork and dip your toothbrush into in and brush your teeth we the mashed strawberry..try doing this a twice a week you will start seeing results. Personally, I think this method of teeth whiten is so much more better then having them whitened with chemicals.

Strawberry Skin Scrub?…Why not try cutting up strawberries and rubbing them over your face to gently exfoliate your skin, strawberries are good to refresh and cleanse your skin as it consist of alpha-hydroxy acid. Leave the scrub on your face for a few minutes then rinse off you will find that your skin feels fresher and smoother.

If you are suffering with puffy eyes all you have to do is cut a few slices of strawberries and place them on your eyelids and under eyes sit back and relax for around 8-10mins after the time is up remove the slices and moisturise under your and around your eyes with a eye cream of your choice and you will notice the skin around your eyes will no longer look puffy and you will look really awake and hydrated.

Suffering with dry hair before you shampoo your hair why not chop up 6-8 strawberries and mix in well with a tablespoon of mayonnaise apply to dry hair ensuring that the mixture is applied equally and tie up and place a in shower cap. To ensure that the mixture works into the hair place a warm towel over the shower cap. Try and wait for a good ten minutes to ensure that the mixture works into the hair, once the time is up wash off with your normal routine. You will find that there will be improvement with your hair and it will feel a lot softer.

If you want to ensure that your skin is really soft and moisturised then I would recommend for you to mix in mashed strawberries with plain unsweetened yoghurt. once the mixture is blended together well you can apply it to your face just like a face mask and keep it on your face for 10mins. This face mask is so easy to make, keeps your skin soft and hydrated and is also amazing for oily skin.

It’s so amazing how one fruit can benefit you in so many ways strawberries are also recommended to be eaten when you want to lose weight as the acid within the strawberry burns fat and so this healthy and tasty option will help you to achieve many things.

Until next time.

  REVIEW: GARNIER CLEANSING WATER

 January 23, 2015

Hey lovelies!

Hope you are all well.

I have a review for you all on the Garnier Cleansing Water, this product has changed my skin!! Before I was using the L’Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Solution and my skin did not agree with it,  my skin would break out, sting and be sore. Due to the bad results with the L’Oreal product I was nervous and hesitant to try out the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. I finally took the risk and went for it….within 4 days I saw a change to my skin…my breakouts cleared up and the product and my skin agreed 😀 RESULT!

I use the cleansing water before I exfoliate/use a face wash on my face to remove my eye make-up, lip-sticks and skin make-up before carrying on with my skincare regime and in the mornings before I use my face wash and apply my toners & moisturiser. I really like the scent of the solution it’s fresh and light and not overpowering.

Do I recommend the product?

100%…it has worked wonders for me! Once I run out of the product I know I will be running back to Boots to grab a new bottle. The bottle is 400ml whereas the L’Oreal solution is only 200ml…so you get a lot more with Garnier and it is not as harsh to the skin. On the bottle it states that it is suitable for sensitive skin and they are correct. I do suffer with sensitive skin and this cleansing water has not affected me at all. Since I have bought this product I have been using it every morning and every night and it is definitely my best buy for this month so far!

Packaging

I really like the packaging on this product…love how the colours are very simple and the bottle itself it simple there’s not a lot going on which I like. This may sound a little silly but to me the bottle looks “Fresh” which I think identifies the product in a perfect way as the product does leave you feeling fresh.

FIGHT AWAY THE SPOTS

Hey lovelies!

We all know how horrible spots are especially when you want a flawless look…but no worries the Witch Blemish Stick is a life saviour!! Over the years I have experimented with many products so that I can find the perfect product to help me fight away the blemishes, however, nothing has worked for me as well as this product has.

This product is amazing it fights away the spot and fights against the bacteria which has caused the spot. The application of the stick is very simple and easy, all you have to do is push the stick up and apply the product on the problem area as many times as possible to ensure that it fights it away!

It works for all skin types- oily and combination skin!

However, if you have sensitive skin I would recommend that you do a test patch before you apply the product to ensure that the product isn’t too harsh for your skin.

The price is very reasonable and worth the product.

You can find this product anywhere…I normally get mine from Tesco’s or Sainsbury’s.

It’s my life SAVIOUR!!

I have linked a few websites below on where you can find product- check them out!
