Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser This cleanser is amazing for my oily skin. I use it morning and night and it does not dry out my skin at all. It has a faint fragrance that smells really good and “clean”. My skin feels super soft after I use this and it helps control my oil. cocokind - Rosewater Facial Toner I use this toner in the morning after I cleanse. I mist it directly onto my face and let it dry, sometimes I pat it in a little with my fingertips. I really like this toner because it is not too harsh and it is literally only one ingredient. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I use this in the mornings after toner. I have been using it for three months now and it has completely transformed my skin. For as long as I can remember my skin has been dull, covered in little clogged pores (bumps) on my forehead and cheeks and it’s looked horrible. Nothing I tried ever fixed my problem (and I tried everything). Then when I saw reviews for this I thought it was too good to be true but I was wrong. It has been heavenly for my skin and I’m really satisfied with the results. My bumps are gone and my complexion is extremely bright and glowing. CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ I’ve been using this moisturizer since I was like ten years old and I love it. It never makes me feel greasy and it makes my skin super soft. I use it in the mornings and night. BURT’S BEES - Skin Nourishment Eye Cream I’m really happy with this eye cream because it is for sensitive skin and the skin around my eyes is extremely sensitive. I tried using an eye cream once before and it literally burned the skin around my eyes, made it super red and dry. I was reluctant to try one again but this one has never done that. It makes the skin under my eyes super soft and I love it! I use it both morning and night. sun bum - Face Lotion SPF 50 I use this to complete my morning skincare routine. I like it because it has a slight fragrance but it smells really good. My skin never feels greasy after using it and it absorbs it really well. The only negative to this is that if it gets in my eye it burns a little but other than that it’s good. The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution I use this as my night toner. I apply it with a cotton pad. I really like this because it literally just sucks out all the dirt from my pores from the day and makes my skin feel super clean. My cotton pad will literally be tinted brown after I use it (gross) but that means its really getting rid of all the dirt and gunk from the day. The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% I use this at night and it makes my skin feel super clean and good. The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil I use this at the end of my night routine, jade roll it on. I love it.

🍚Is Rice Water for Hair Growth Really the Next Big Trend?
We all want stronger, shinier and more resilient hair, and we often feel as though the only way to achieve our dream hair is to spend a lot of money in the salon on treatments.

How to grow my hair and keep it healthy?
How to grow my hair and keep it healthy?
A lot of people ask me what I do to grow my hair and keep it healthy and the answer is little to nothing. Keep reading... • • • 💃🏽 In the past year, I’ve put ZERO heat on my hair. So no straightening or stretching from the blow dryer of any kind • • 💃🏽 I wear my hair down as long as I can before it starts to look too crazy so I minimize the amount I’m pulling and manipulating my hair • • • 💃🏽 I also make sure there’s as little to no product buildup on my scalp to keep good scalp health. • • 💃🏽 So in the end, I’m actually doing a lot by doing very little to nothing of the things that hurt new growth 👌🏽

Hello BABY skin 😍😍😍
Hello BABY skin 😍😍😍
I’ve heard rave reviews regarding Paula’s Choice range and thought I try it out esp while it was on sale. Luckily it did not let me down... Phew 😅 Pic 1 - I had really dry skin around my mouth and nose from too much exfoliation and having the heater on throughout the day. Pic 2 - after using all the Paula’s choice range my skin was soft and dewy - not tight or dry. Pic 3 - in my opinion my make up settled into the skin really nice 👍 Note: - The pore cleanser is gel form - The exfoliant is a clear liquid which you will need to put on a cotton pad to wipe on your face (my skin is dry sensitive so I only used the exfoliant at night every second or third night). - The moisturiser is a white cream very light weight, non greasy on the skin. - The niacinamide feels like water (non greasy), I applied this before the moisturiser. - The face mask was a free gift - gotta love freebies 😉! If I was to repurchase I would definitely purchase the pore cleanser and moisturiser again. The cleanser has Salicylic acid in its ingredients so you could skip the exfoliant. Also the moisturiser is a barrier repair moisturiser which has retinol. This helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, smooths and hydrates the skin so I can skip on the niacinamide booster. Love to hear your experience with Paula’s choice. And if you have any recommendations from the range I would love to hear it 🥰🥰🥰

Christophe Robin - Regenerating Mask with Prickly Pear Seed Oil This hair treatment's rich formula penetrates the hair for a deep and long-lasting result. Prickly pear seed oil provides antioxidant and regenerative benefits while plant ceramides restructure hair to make it stronger and shinier. Inula extracts help to protect and revive pigments. The smell of the Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask alone smells like seventy-one dollars. The aroma reminds me of a high-end department store in France where I can’t even afford a pair of socks. I don’t know what rare prickly pear seed oil smells like, but the scent reminds me of milk and honey and remains long after the mask is rinsed off. The creamy formula coats strands and it feels as if your hair is drinking a glass of fancy, delicious custard. An extravagant custard cashmere sweater, if you can imagine, envelopes your strands. You just need a small scoop of product and work it through from scalp to ends.  I have tried many masks, some more popular than this, but this is genuinely the best. I am now on my second tub and I have converted my sister and mum to it! It gives hair a certain softness and shine that I never got with other masks. My hair (which is quite long) is like butter, and it really helps with split ends. It also doesn't weigh my hair down or make it look greasy. The price is steep but it is worth the splurge. I use it sparingly, roughly once a week, and it has kept my hair so healthy. You can leave it on for ten minutes for great results but I prefer to leave mine on for longer to try and get the most out of it. Genuinely impressed! The jar recommends letting the mask sit for five minutes. However, I leave the mask on for seven minutes to really enjoy the luxurious experience and to also shave my legs. It’s called multitasking guys! The mask rinses clean and when I step out of the shower, I feel like a million bucks. Whether you like to blow, or air dry your hair, the mask leaves your hair soft with a healthy sheen. This product is great for those who use heat styling products and/or have color treated hair. My hair is on the thick and coarse side with a bit of heat damage, so I like to use the mask about once every two weeks. While the price is steep, it’s worth trying. Any recommendation for hair masks?😜

YES, that’s my hair! And I’m going to share with you some tips on how I got my hair to look like this! PSA: I’m not a hairdresser ❤️ Your shampoo DOES MATTER- stop using drug store shampoo/conditioner that’s just making your hair dried out and greasy. Some great and still affordable brands are PAUL MITCHELL - Clarifying Shampoo Two BIOSILK - Silk Therapy Shampoo MATRIX - Ultra Hydrasource Shampoo (I’m currently using the Paul Mitchell shampoo/conditioner) Tip: going to stores like marshals or TJ max can help save money on these products. ❤️ Cut the heat 🚫🔥 heat can damage your hair! And if you have to use heat styling tools PLEASE use a heat protectant spray. ❤️ Wash your hair only 2-3 times a week, you don’t want to strip your hair of its natural oils!! ❤️ Use hair oil or hair serum EVERY👏🏼SINGLE👏🏼DAY! You don’t need much, maybe a little more then a pea size just enough to hydrate your hair and give it some shine🌟 I like BIOSILK - Silk Therapy Original ogx - Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Extra Penetrating Hair Oil I’ve also noticed while using these products my hair has less knots and frizz ❤️ Don’t underestimate the power of a silk pillow case. At night you move around and your hair can get snagged and break with a cotton pillowcase, the silk allows your hair to slide off and is better for your skin too ❤️ OLIVE OIL is your new best friend you never knew you had. I soak my hair in olive oil once a month and it really helps with growth. (I made a separate post on this if you want to know more!) ❤️ Most important⚠️ PLEASE DO NOT color your hair with box dye!!! Ahhh this is so so bad for your hair. If you need a change please go see a hair stylist to talk about what’s best for YOUR hair needs, your hair will thank you! ❤️ Don’t forger to trim the dead ends. I know it sounds so simple and everyone knows this buts it’s so important for the health of your hair and makes your hair look healthier and helps your hair grow faster! ❤️ Don’t forget about hair masks!! There’s so many different brands and options for every hair type. One of my favorites Is the brand HASK. HASK - Keratin Protein Smoothing Deep Conditioner Packette the packs are so big that I can use half and get 2 uses out of it ❤️ What brush are you using?? I only use the Wet brush - Original Detangler because the bristles are so flexible they don’t rip my hair out while I’m brushing while detangling my hair with no problem and can be used on dry hair too not just wet!! I hope this helped! If you have any other good hair tips leave them in the comments below!

My biggest hair secret!
My biggest hair secret!
I love Navratna Ayurvedic oil! I purchase this at local Indian markets but you can also find it on Amazon. This is a blend of oils that have a cool feeling: Sesame oil, Menthol, Amla, Camphor, Thyme and Rosemary Oil. Rosemary oil is great for boosting circulation and growth. I use this once a week and feel that it has kept my Navratna - Ayurvedic Cool Hair Oil hair healthy, soft and shiny. I also do feel it is the reason my hair grows so long. I use the oil in my scalp and the strands of my hair. I massage my scalp gently for an additional 5-10 minutes after applying. I leave the oil on overnight and then shampoo twice the next day. Stress is one of the main reasons people have hair fall. The menthol and cooling factor in this oil helps to relax me and in turn helps with hair loss. The scent is really strong for some so be mindful, but it doesn’t bother me.
