Lush Fresh Face Mask - BB Seaweed Review

This post has been in my draft for months, sorry for being so late. I have been so busy with school work that I haven't really had time to post anything:(

I got sample of this when my mum was buying some hair stuff for her friend
From Lush website:
"For softening, cooling and reducing redness.
Honey, seaweed and aloe vera to soften and soothe. Olive oil to moisturise.  Fresh rose petals and rose absolute to reduce redness. Rosemary oil to regenerate the skin. All of this is held together with kaolin, ground almonds and millet flakes – so when you wash this off you are also gently exfoliating and removing dead skin"

you can see from the texture that there are big chunks of seaweed which at least proves that there really is seaweed in the mask. However it is the big chunks of seaweed that makes applying this mask a hassle, they keep falling off your face! 
I wouldn't say I notice much difference from this mask but then I only used it twice, but if you have sensitive skin you might want to give it a go. I do prefer Love Lettuce for a mask that's for all different skin types it's just a lot easier to apply!

November 2012 Non Beauty Favourites

Christmas is so near yet some how I still don't really feel the Christmas spirit yet :(

I don't have any beauty favourites this month because there hasn't been really something I have really liked so lets proceed to the non beauty favourites of the month

(oh yeah sorry again for the lack of posts, school has been so busy!)


TVXQ - Humanoids 
This is another epic song from TVXQ with their once again amazing dance moves

Shinhwa - Venus
I have been obsessed with the legend this month after watching their show Shinhwa Broadcast 

Sistar- Alone
This was one of my favourite song  earlier on this year and I have fallen in love with it once again. Love Sistar they have become one of my favourite girl groups over this year and congrats on the MAMA award

Rainbow - A
I remember listening to this when it first came out but didn't really like it but recently I have listened to it again and have really like it. The dance to this was apparently too sexy so it got banned but tbh compared to some western mvs this is nothing but koreans are stricter when it comes to these things.
 I do think that they are so underrated and don't really understand why.  They are pretty, good singers/rappers and have catchy songs they deserve more popularity. I can't wait til their next comeback


Shinhwa Broadcast
This show is absolutely hilarious. I haven't laughed so mush in a long time.
I watched the show because of super junior and it has made me fall in love with Shinhwa. I am currently on episode 7 which is the kids channel - it is so cute.
Episode 6 was upsetting at the end when my favourite Hyesung hurt himself :( 

I recommend this to my Korean friend and she has also been obsessed with the show. 
This is definitely one of the funniest shows I have ever watched - even if you don't know Shinhwa I bet you will still find them funny

Lush Love Lettuce Face Mask Review

This post is on popular lush fresh face mask - Love Lettuce
I have only used this twice because I had a sample of this. 

LOVE LETTUCE £5.95/75g

Love Lettuce is Vegetarian Approved

Fresh Face Masks

Lettuce show you the way to lovely skin
This mask is a seaweed gel with exfoliating granules through it. 
Ideal for those who want to clear away dead skin and brighten the face, whilst also gently treating it to softening ingredients.

Quantitative Ingredients (from Lush website)

Agar Agar Gel, Kaolin, Honey, Fullers Earth, Glycerine, Almond Oil, Ground Almond Shells, Ground Almonds, Lavender Oil, Chlorophyllin, *Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume
*occurs naturally in essential oils

However even though this mask is called Love Lettuce it actually contains no lettuce. 

in real life the colour is more green, the camera has washed it out.
Even though it doesn't actually have lettuce it surely looks like it does.
the mask smells like lavender, which is not surprising seeing that it is one of the ingredients, the scent is not overwhelming like most lavender scents but refreshing.  

What do I think?
After only 2 uses of this mask I have found my skin to feel softer, this mask is suitable for all skin types so everyone can try it out, however apart from that it didn't really do much. 

Will I buy the full size?
Might do but I want to try the other Lush masks before I buy ones I've before. 

Have you tried this before? What do you think

October 2012 Favourites

Sorry for the lack of posts, school has been so busy and its a really important year for me this year:(
I have a lot of posts in my drafts but just haven't gone round to finishing them off yet.

So here are this months favourites :) 

I will write review for the mask and the eye makeup remover 

from left to right: Garnier 2 in 1 makeup remover, lush mask of magnaminty and sex and city lust eau de parfum 

this has a fruity scent to it - i love it and the bottle is so pretty 

this is the onlt lush mask that you can keep out of the fridge and have a shelf life of more than 1 month.
it smells like mint ice cream and can be used face and back

though it says no perfume there is a floral scent to it, it is the best eye makeup remover i have used so far. Can also be used for removing face makeup

now on to the other favourites

TV - Rooftop Prince
I have finally finished watching this, i kept on going back to this after finishing other stuff. It can be happy one moment and sad the next. So emotional! definitely one of the best kdramas this year and best ever!
the following clip are definitely one of my most memorable scene from the drama

TVXQ - Catch Me
they are back! love this song and dance
<3 yunho

Ailee - I will show you
wow this girl has such a strong voice - she has become one of my fav soloists 

Boa - Only one
this song came out a few months ago but I have only started to love it now after watching stylesuzi videos lol 

Boa - shadow
another boa song - i've been really into her songs this month

orange caramel -  lipstick
this is so addictive and the music video is so funny

secret - poison
wow this is a strong comeback from secret so sexy
<3 hyosung

September 2012 Favourites

Its been a while since the last time I wrote a proper post, I do apolgise for the lack of posts recently, school has been so busy, it's work work work everyday!

I haven't been wearing makeup that much this month but here are my favourites for the one and only September  2012

They are Collection 2000 lasting colour gel eyeliner in black, Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze and Vaseline in Aloe Vera

trying some new photo techniques!

Vaseline Lip Therapy with Aloe Vera 20g - £1.99
As you can see this is still the whole packaging, I have had this for ages and have only recently hit pan.
I really do think that every girl should have some kind of lip balm or vaseline in the bag it really does make a difference to those chapped lips especially in the winter or just to make your lips a bit more mosturised. Vaseline is also a very multi- function product, as well as your lips you can put use it for cuticle care, lash care or eve to remove makeup  - it works better than some cheap makeup remover!
This one smells amazing, I absolutely hate the smell of the original one. its disgusting so I picked this up, when I finish this I want to try either rosy lips or cocoa butter. 

Maybelline Eye Studio Colour Tattoo24 hour Cream Gel Shadow in On and On Bronze - £4.99
I absolutely love this! I use it as eyeshadow base and makes them pop and last a lot longer plus you don't need much.
For full review click here 

Collection 2000 lasting colour gel eyeliner in black - £4.99 
I haven't tried any other gel liners to compare it with but if I'm wearing makeup I'll be wearing this.
just a word of warning you will need your own liner brush, the one included is rubbish. 
For full review click here

Now onto my other non-beauty favourites of month

Book - The Hunger Games
I have finally finished reading this book. It took me a long time to finish not because it wasn't good its just that I'm a really slow reader. Now I need to read the remaining 2 books


T-ara Sexy Love

They are back yay! but then i do agree they have made this comeback a bit quick they should of waited a year for things to calm down. I mean the Nickchun scandal happened before the T-ara one and now T-ara are back just after one month and khun is still in hiding and might not be able to participant in their upcoming concert which is quite upsetting :(

Anyways I  LOVE this song it's so addictive but then all T-ara songs are addictive
there are 3 versions of the video and I'll link all of them below.
T-ara hwaiting! plus loving the robot dance. Shame SimonandMartina didn't review this :( 

dance ver.

robot dance ver. this is basically same as dance ver. just shorter and some different shots

drama ver, this has lots of eunjung yay!

What are your favourites this month?

Garnier 2 in 1 Soothing Makeup Remover Review

You might remember seeing this in my haul post ages ago but only just had the chance to write the full review

I'll be introducing to you my favourite eye makeup remover I have ever tried - but then the previous ones I tried were ones that were really cheap Superdrug own brand, the old one not so sure about the new one because they have repackaged their own brand products recently. The other one I tried was from Wilkinsons own brand skin therapy which costed 98p. Don't buy those because they don't remove makeup! The best they do is remove eye shadow but leave  your eye liner and mascara completely intact even Vaseline does a better job then they do!

Anyways back to the Garnier Soothing 2 in 1 makeup remover, I got my from Superdrug when it was on offer, I think it was 2 for £3.99 which is a really good deal, for one bottle you can get it for £2.99 which is still a good price. 

It's a 2 in 1 makeup remover so it can be used for eyes and face. I usually remove my eye makeup using this and then use the remainder to remove face makeup before using my facial cleanser. 
It has two parts, the blue oil part which is what is needed to remove heavy duty makeup like waterproof mascara and the white part which to be honest I'm not really sure for its for. 

It's suitable for sensitive eyes and skin because of the 3 nos properties, no perfume, no alcohol and no rubbing - so basically no drying out the skin because there's no alcohol and no premature wrinkles!
Even though it says there is no perfume there is a floral scent to it, probably from the plant extracts 

This is from one swipe and look all the makeup is gone!

  • removes waterproof mascara and gel eyeliner
  • affordable
  • no rubbing
  • has a pleasant floral scent 
  • does not irritate eyes if it gets into eyes
  • easy to get here in the UK

  • have to shake it every time 
Will I buy it again?
Already have!

Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Shadow In On and on Bronze

Today I will be reviewing a super popular Maybelline colour tatto in On and on Bronze.
This may be known as Bad to the broze in other places.
I don't really understand why they've got different names because they are the same product lol

from Maybelline website :
Dare to wear our longest-lasting shadow.
Our ink technology creates super-saturated color.Cream gel smoothes on for vibrant color that does not fade.

This retails in the UK for £4.99 which is really good considering you get a lot of product

I chose this colour because this was the most wearable and pigmented colours from the UK range, they only have 7 colours here in the UK :(

I usually wear this under my eye shadow, usually my eye shadow would of faded within a couple of hours but with this it lasted the whole day!

mini makeup haul

I went to superdrug to buy some makeup just before school started for the last time before I have to worked really hard again :( 

I saw that all maybelline products were 2 for £10 so I decided to take advantage of it but it turned out that I only saved like £3 something because I didn't buy efficiently if that makes any sense at all lol 

I also bought a makeup remover because is was 2 for £3.99 which is really good for a good makeup remover

What I bought : Garnier Soothing 2 in 1 makeup remover (£3.99 for 2), Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Bad to Bronze/ On and On Bronze depending on where you're from (£4.99) I should of bought something for expensive and Maybelline Illegal Lengths Waterproof Mascara (£8.99) 

i will be doing reviews on these soon once I had a chance to use them and test them out. 

Hop you guys have a good day.

August 2012 Favourites

Today I will posting my first monthly favourites post.
Okay I might not do this every month but I'll try my best :)

So in this post I've decided as well as posting my favourite beauty products of the month I will be also sharing with you guys some of my favourite entertainment like favourite drama/book/film and music, not necessarily new songs/ drama but basically my favourtie things of the month.

Also because school has started so I won't be able to post much :( I will be very busy studying but I will try my best :)

I'll start off with beauty products 

Skin79 VIP Gold BB Cream (review here)
might not be best suited for summer for me because this is for dry skin and I have oily, but does have SPF 25 and feels very light on the skin.

Avon Big Glossy Lip Pencil (review here)
Nice sheer natural colour for the summer which doesn't dry out the lips

and finally MUA intense pencil eyeliner in Snow White (review here)
pigmented, creamy and only costs £1!

Favourite Drama of the Month

To the Beautiful You

This is the korean version of Hana Kimi with f(x)'s Sulli and Shinee's Minho.
So far it is very funny, Sulli's acting is very good in my opinion and Minho is so hot!
Lee Hyun Woo is so cute and funny and for those ZE:A fans there's also Hwang Kwang Hee.

Favourite Songs of the Month 

Super Junior - Sexy Free & Single

As you guys may know I am a huge Super Junior fan and I love this song, didn't really like the 'Sexy, Free & and Single, I'm ready too. Bingo!' bit, but now Its grown on me!
Love Yesung's sexy voice and Donghae has so many parts!!
They're my biased you see :)
Not so fond of they're other song spy though, love the chorus but the happy nursery rhyme bits NO.

T-ara - Day by Day
Even though Hwayoung has left the group her rap is awesome, love this song though the dance version of the music video keeps on flashing so be careful if you don't like flashy lights:(
the drama version is also quite cool, check below

MUA intense colour eyeliner pencil review

Today I will be reviewing my first ever MUA product, intense colour eyeliner pencil in snow white, I got it from superdrug for £1. It's such a bargain!

For those of you who haven't heard of MUA which stands for Makeup Academy it's a very affordable brand with all the products under £4!

You can find MUA products either  from Superdrug or from their website . They ship internationally as well.

Description from MUA
"Intense Eye Liner Pencil which produces a precise and well defined line for accentuating the eyes with an intense colour finish."

I originally bought this to line my waterline, I have read that lining your waterline with white liner will make eyes look bigger but when I tried it, I looked really weird so I ending up using this using it to highlight my inner corner and my brow bone. 

It stays put the whole day just with slight fading, the pencil is also really creamy so it goes on really smoothly with no tugging at all 

A sharpener is also included in the lid 

the swatch look how pigmented it is!

What I like:
  • Cheap only costs £1
  • Creamy and soft
  • There is a sharpener in the lid
  • Very Pigmented, a little goes a long way
  •  blends easily - good for highlighting!
What I didn't like:
  • When applied on waterline can uneven a bit uneven
Will I buy again: Yes, I want to try the other colours 

Overall I think this is an amazing eyeliner especially with the cheap price tag that comes with it  and a sharpener!
