Review: MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator

Hi everyone,

I was in need of buying a gritty exfoliator, as the one I was using previously was due to run out. So, I decided to purchase the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator from MAC, because I had heard loads of good things about it.

The MAC Volcanic Exfoliator comes out of the tube as a thick blob, but once water has been added too it the consistency thins out. Its also a very gritty exfoliator, which means it will slough off any dead skin cells easily.

- Dual purpose cleansing & exfoliating scrub that blends natural volcanic ash with fine sugar crystals
- Highly effective, mineral rich concentrated formula that refines and unclogs pores, and adds instant moisture
- Leaves skin feeling soft and comfortably clean

- Exfoliates skin
- Smoothes skin
- Hydrating
- Controls oil
- For all skin types

Overall, I'm thrilled to bits with this exfoliator and I think it has become my new favourite exfoliator. As its gritty and it does get the job done at removing any dead skin cells from the skins surface.

Sephora Haul

Hi everyone,

I have recently placed an online order with Sephora, and I thought I would share with you what I have purchased. My order did take a little longer than usual to get to me; and within this order I have managed to purchase some stuff that I have had my eye for quite sometime.

Marc Jacobs Reinvented Lip Duo
I have been wanting to try the Marc Jacobs lip products for quite sometime, but I have got around to purhcasing any. So when I stumbled across this lip duo I thought it would be ideal for me try and to see if I like the formula of Marc Jacobs lip products. This little lip duo contains a petit Le Marc Creme lipstick in 'Slow Burn', and also a petit Enamoured Hi-Shine Lip Lacquar in 'Allow Me'. 

Sephora Favourites 'Give Me Some Nude Lip' Set
I have been wanting to try a Sephora Favourites lip set for years, and I noticed that they had two versions of the 'Give Me Some Nude Lip' set. This set contains a full size Urban Decay VICE Liquid Lipstick in 'Trivial', Too Faced Lip Injection Glossy in 'Spice Girl', Anastasia Lip Gloss in 'Kristen', Marc Jacobs Enamoured Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer in 'Sugar Sugar', NARS Velvet Lip Glide in 'Bound', and also a Taste Lippie Lingerie Matte Tint in 'Revealed'.

Herbivore True Blue Set
I have heard loads of great things about the skincare brand Herbivore, but I have never tried anything from them. This little duo contains the Lapis facial oil, and also the Blue Tansy AHA & BHA Resurfacing Clarity face mask. I'm really looking forward to using this little set as I think that it will benefit my skin and its current needs.

Tatcha 'The Kyoto Cleanse' Gift Set
This is Tatcha's take on 'double cleansing' and I have heard that both of these products are meant to be excellent. This little set contains the One Step Camilia cleansing oil and also the Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder. It was more of the enzyme powder that I was interested in trying, but they were completely sold out of the travel size on the website, so I decided to purchase the duo instead as it was in stock.

Seisedo Facial Cottons 165 Sheets
I have heard a lot about the Seisedo facial cottons, so I have decided to invest in pack and see whether or not I like them.

Sephora Pro Concealer Brush 57
I have been wanting to try a concealer brush from the Sephora Pro brush line. I really like the look of this concealer brush as its wider than my current concealer brush, and its more densly packed with bristles.

Sephora Pro Foundation Brush 56
I have had my eye on this foundation brush for years, but I have never got around to buying it. This is a bit smaller than my current foundation brush, and it also has a slimer diameter and a slightly different shape. 

I'm really looking forward to using my new products from Sephora, and seeing if they work out for me.

Review: Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask

Hi everyone,

I have been using the Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing for quite a while, and I thought I would share my thoughts on it with you.

The Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask is a purifying mask, and this is ideal if you have oily/ combination skin or acne prone skin.
Because this is a purifying mask I was expecting this to be quite harsh, but it wasn't. This is one of the gentlest pore cleansing masks I have used.

- Cleanses skin from debris, visibly minimises pores and a brighter looking complexion
- Helps to clear blackheads
- Formulated with mineral rich Amazonian white clay to gently draw out oil, dirt and toxins that clog pores
- Oatmeal and Aloe Vera help to soothe the skin

This mask leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed without it leaving feeling stripped of its natural oils. I also like this mask because its a gentle purifying mask, so it isn't harsh on the skin.

Collective Beauty Haul

Hi everyone,

I have been doing a bit of shopping recently, but everything in this haul was brought over a few shopping trips.

Body Shop Seaweed Cleansing Gel
I decided to purchase the seaweed cleansing gel as I seem to be going through my Elemis Lime Blossom cleanser rather quickly. So I thought I would try out the seaweed cleansing gel from the Body Shop.

Body Shop Seaweed Toner
To go alongside the seaweed cleansing gel I also decided to get the matching toner. Just to see what its like. In the past I haven't had much luck with the toners on offer from the Body Shop, but I'm willingto give this one a try.

The Seaweed range from the Body Shop is aimed at oily/ combination skin.

Clinique 'Take the Day Off' Cleansing Oil
I decided to give the cleansing oil a try because I really like the 'Take the Day Off' cleansing balm.

Clinique 'Take the Day Off' Cleansing Balm
This has become my favourite cleansing balm, so I decided that I would purchase a 'back up'.

Lancome Tonique Eclat 200ml
The Tonique Eclat from Lancome is a clarifying toner, and this has also received some really good reviews. I decided to pick up the smaller size as I never tried the clarifying toner from Lancome before.

Lancome Energie de Vie Overnight Sleeping Mask
I had a sampe of this when it first came out and I remembered that I really enjoyed using it because of how hydrating it is. So I decided to buy the full size as my night time moisturiser once my other evening moisturisers have been used up.
