Pristine Dead Sea Mud Mask | Review

Pristine Dead Sea Mud face Mask Review amazon

Pristine Dead Sea Mud face Mask Review amazon

You might have seen from a few of my other posts that I sure do love a good face mask. They just seem to always leave me feeling refreshed and are a great relaxation product to use at the end of a hectic week to pamper the skin a little. I have previously tried a mud mask before and even did a review on it, but I couldn't wait to try a different brand as I was so pleased with the results last time. 

Pristine Dead Sea Mud face Mask Review amazon

Mud masks are one of those products that are used to really clean the skin and lift impurities and clogged up pores. Recently I have really felt the need to incorporate such a mask as for some reason I kept breaking out and my skin was looking quite dull (my diet hasn't been very healthy recently, so my skin issues are probably down to that unfortunately). 

There are so many benefits of using a mud mask, but this Pristine Dead Sea Mud Mask in particular claims to:

  • Purify the pores as a natural skin cleanser
  • Promote clearer skin and reduce the frequency of blemishes
  • Remove excess oil to combat shine
  • Minimize enlarged pores 
  • Diminish the appearance of wrinkles
  • Address blackheads 
  • Ease inflammation 
  • Reduce the prominence of scars 
  • Protect skin from free radical damage with antioxidant vitamin E 
  • Restore vitality and radiance to the complexion
Not only is natural and organic, but also vegan and cruelty free. I find that incorporating natural products into your skincare routine makes such a difference to the overall result. With vegan products not readily available as I think that they should be (especially in the drugstore, which kind of infuriates me), Pristine have done well in upholding their ethics when creating this product.

I have used this product multiple times now, although I try not to use it more than once a week as that is all that is needed for the product to work. I slathered the mask on to my face, using a flat foundation brush to create an even finish. The texture of this surprised me as it wasn't as heavy as the previous Dead Sea Mud Mask I used. It was actually pretty light on the skin and easy to work with it. After I let it dry for just under 15 minutes, I found that the product didn't harden up like other masks often do. Instead it remained in the original texture, which I was really pleased with as it meant there was no uncomfortableness or tingling on my face. 

After washing the mask off, my face felt instantly clean. There was no drastic difference that would wow people instantly, but I did find a difference in the texture of my skin. Not only did it smoothen my skin but I felt like it really gave my face a deep clean, leaving a 'glowing within look'. After every use, I can see a slight improvement in the overall appearance, that it just keeps me going back for more! If you're looking for similar results, then I would recommend checking this product out. You can buy it on Amazon for £14.97, which is a great price considering the tube is huge and is sure to last a while. You can buy the product here

Scrub Love Coffee Body Scrub in Mint Temptation

Scrub Love Coffee Body Scrub in Mint Temptation natural organic skincare

I am a huge fan of body scrubs and have recently seen the appearance of coffee scrubs propping up on various beauty blogs which scream abut the benefits that leaves your skin looking amazing. Not only is a scrub a great exfoliant but the coffee is a natural ingredient that improves the look and feel of your skin. What's not to like?!

Scrub Love is a UK brand that is 100% natural. Yes, 100%! Not only are their products organic, but they are also fairtrade and ethically sourced which gives you peace of mind that your purchase is coming from a good place. And boy is it worth it. 

First of all, this scrub smells AMAZING. I cannot get over the smell, it just reminds me of strong mint chocolate. I'm not the biggest fan of mint scents but I am actually obsessed with this one. I reckon even if you don't like mint scents you will like this (if not, then there are also other scents you can choose from on the Scrub Love website). 

I have the scrub in 'Mint Temptation' which has organic Robusta coffee, tea tree oil, organ oil, peppermint oil and dead sea salt. Whilst the coffee part buffs away dead skin cells, all the different oils help to smooth out, heal and cleanse the skin to leave it looking and feeling nourished.

After using this scrub a few times, I have quickly become obsessed. It feels so good to buff into my skin without being at all harsh or drying. Its actually quite a therapeutic process, especially with the added bonus of the peppermint aroma. All I do is apply it and then leave it evenly onto my skin and leave for around five minutes. Even when I don't have time, I wash it off after a couple of minutes and I can still feel a difference in the texture of my skin. I am totally happy with the result as it gives a lovely glow and brightens up the dull complexion on my arms and legs and wherever else i tend to use it. 

If you want to hold on tight to summer for a little bit longer, than this is the product for you! Or if like me you can't wait for winter when you tend let go of your skincare routine (I for one am guilt of this) this product is great to give your skin a much-needed boost. You can even use the scrub on your face as the natural ingredients are perfectly suitable even for sensitive areas. Other variations include 'Original Lovin' and 'Coconut Affair' which are the perfect body scrubs brightening and hydrating skin. You can find out more and purchase your own product on the Scrub Love website here

6 Reasons why you need a Tangle Teezer in your life

6 Reasons advice Tangle Teezer hair haircare brush comb Britain

6 Reasons advice Tangle Teezer hair haircare brush comb Britain

6 Reasons advice Tangle Teezer hair haircare brush comb Britain

I remember when Tangle Teezers first launched in the UK, they were the big thing that everyone needed to get their hands on. I simply never understood what the big fuss was about, and at the time spending £10.99 seemed a bit ridiculous for a hairbrush. Fast forward to last month, where I finally gave in and splurged on this infamous hairbrush.  I decided to purchase the compact version used for travelling just to keep in my handbag as noticed my hair gets quite frizzy throughout the day. Not many brands do travel hairbrushes so I thought I may as well get the infamous Tangle Teezer to see what the big deal was. Seeing as my hair is thick and wavy, and most of the time fry, I wasn't sure this would quite do the job but boy was I wrong. Here are 10 great things I have since discovered about my new obsession:

1. Its so compact... which makes it great even for my smaller handbags as it takes up hardly any space. 

2. The design is lovely... and there are so many other options to choose from if this particular one isn't your style

3. It actually detangles my untameable hair...  and helps get rid of any knots that magically appear throughout the day.

4. It keeps frizz at bay... for most of the day anyway.

5. Its made in Britain... not a big deal to some but I think its great that we're supporting something great that originated over here in the UK. 

6. Theres loads of different styles you can choose from to suit your needs.... the Original, Styler and Aqua versions are just a few of my favourites.

Weleda Skincare Products

Weleda Skincare Products face cream cute pink and green natural organic

Weleda Skincare Products cleanser cleansing lotion cute pink and green natural organic

Weleda is not a brand I've heard much about before but after reading their product information, I was intrigued to try out their products for myself and put them properly to the test on my skin.

First off, the packaging is so pretty. It looks fresh and purifying, which are the main values of the company. The packaging of each product makes it easy to use without risk of spillages or use of excess product. The bright colours are indicative of the natural ingredients and brand values of Weleda, who are a company focussed on furthering the economy and promoting health and well-being across the globe.

Weleda Skincare Products facial oil cute pink and green natural organic

Weleda Skincare Products skin food moisturiser cute pink and green natural organic

I got on really well with each of the products and found that they nourished my highly dry and sensitive skin and calmed down the irritation I had from sun-burn on my nose (my bad for not wearing enough sun protection!). The face cream is lovely and rich, whilst the cleansing lotion is great for my skin as it doesn't strip it of the natural oils but instead leaves it feeling nourished after use. The scent is also very fresh which made it enjoyable to use. Even just after the first use of the facial oil, my complexion felt plump and it didn't leave any sort of residue on my skin like oils and serums often do. With regular and consistent use, I hope that this healthiness in my skin is maintained, which I am sure it will be. 

My favourite product was the Skin Food, which I used daily on my face. It is suitable for the whole body which is great when you need to spot dream certain dry spots. It hydrated my skin really well which lastd all day and just gave me a nice fresh glow. 

Have you tried any of the Weleda products? Which do you like the sound of that you'd consider trying out?  You can find out more about their skincare offerings here

Flying Tiger Store Opening in Birmingham, Selfridges

The new Tiger Store in Birmingham has arrived! Last week I was invited to the store to have a look around and pick up a few bits in order to celebrate the new opening in Selfridges. The store is located on the first floor (next to Cath Kidston) and is home to all things fun and quirky. Think of it like the Ikea of homeware and stationary!

The store holds a huge range of items to choose from including homeware, games, stationary and much more. I was actually looking for things that would come in useful for my birthday picnic that I plan to host in the next few weeks and after just a few minutes in the store, I was totally inspired. The array of colours and patterns makes it perfect for the fun summer theme I'm going for. From napkins to tablecloths and bunting, this was the perfect place to shop for any summer event you may be hosting. Just the sheer amount of candle choices made my brother a very happy person (he is the biggest candle hoarder ever).

For those of you dreading going back to school, college or university, Tiger have you sorted. I love the selection of stationary and random bits and bobs that will actually make you look forward to shopping for supplies. Just look at the milk carton pencil case and chocolate eraser! You can find a whole load of stuff to prepare you for starting the new term in a somewhat quirky fashion. What's even better is that everything is very inexpensive, making it perfect for a student budget.

I had the chance to pick up a few pieces while I was there and I am more than happy with I chose. First of all, I got a picnic mat (which I used for the background in the pictures above), made out of this wooden/woven material, making it great to take along with you for summer picnics outside. I also thought these lovely flamingo jars (which are totally instagrammable) would also be perfect for outdoor picnics that are totally, as well as this blue plastic woven basket which is perfect to store food in or little trinkets if I wanted to keep it in my bedroom. I also got a few random pieces including a much-needed selfie-stick and a Jenga-like game for those boring summer days. I love the packets of bunting I picked up as well as these fun straws, I think they'd go really well for the colourful theme I seem to be going with! These unscented candles are only £1 and look great when burning on a pretty place. Last but not least were these delicious gummy sweets and a cake stand which I absolutely adore and can't wait to use the next time I bake cupcakes. 

The new store in Selfridges in Birmingham is great and the simple layout makes it easy to navigate and find anything you want. As you can see, I had a picnic event in mind when choosing my products, and I honestly recommend shopping here if you too are holding a little get-together with your friends and family. There are so many bits to choose from, I'm sure you'll be able to find something to brighten up those endless summer days! I actually can't wait to go back and pick up some pieces I may have missed to finalise my upcoming birthday picnic...

Have you ever been to Tiger yourself? If so, leave below your thoughts on the store!

Johnny Loves Rosie Blogger Breakfast #JLRGirlGang

Johnny Loves Rosie Blogger Breakfast #JLSGirlGang delicious biscuit

Last week I was invited to blogger breakfast with Johnny Loves Rosie, where not only did i get a delicious breakfast but I was lucky enough to have a look at the lovely products the company offers. We were greeted by this lovely layout of different pieces of jewellery, all of which were beautiful in their own way. I particularly loved the chokers and the cat ears! These are all available online on their website and even supply outlets such as ASOS and River Island so everything is pretty easy to get hold of. I can't wait to do some shopping, especially because its free delivery too (it'd be rude not to take advantage!).

Whilst we were tucking into our breakfast (I had salmon and scrambled egg on toast - yum!) I had the chance to talk to the lovely girls who work at Johnny Loves Rosie in Bromsgrove, where I learnt a great deal about what goes on behind the scenes. They explained how amazing it is to see a product from the beginning stages right through to the end, and then actually being able to wear the pieces for themselves.

I found that just by handling the products, they are very good quality, particularly for the inexpensive price point. Everything is so affordable but also beautifully designed, I am surprised I didn't discover this brand sooner. I've already for my eye on a satin choker and an jewelled ear cuff that I can't wait to get my hands on. Whilst these pieces are not available just yet, they will be launching very soon (early September if I remember correctly), so do keep an eye out! You can always tweet them if you'd like more information on any of these pieces you've seen here: @JLSRosieOfficial.

On the website however, there is plenty of products to choose from right now. You can buy lovely accessories that include watches, clutch bags, belts and hair accessories. There are also gorgeous matching sets of earring and necklaces that are to die for! If you haven't already, I would recommend checking out their website where they even have a 'sale' section for pretty pieces at even better prices. 

Do let me know if you have purchased from Johnny Loves Rosie already or if you plan to in the near future, I'd love to see what your picks! I hope to be sharing a haul myself soon, if not on the blog then likely on my twitter page (you can follow me @aliyasabrina_).

Makeup Revolution Lip Laquer / Lipstick | Review

Makeup Revolution Lip Laquer / Lipstick | Review

Makeup Revolution is a brand that has been on my radar for a while and because of the inexpensive price tag, it has had a lot of hype surrounding it. However, this did make me doubt the quality of their products but I decided to take the plunge, since there was not much to lose really, and I am so glad that I did. 

I ordered it online since they never seem to have much stock in the Superdrug stores near me, but with free Click and Collect it was so easy to make my purchase. The colour I chose 'Nothing Like You' and i honestly think it is y ideal colour. Its kind of a nude shade but has a lovely deep pink undertone that complements those with a bit of a darker skintone. It doesn't drown me out or look to bright either like most 'nude' colours do on me. Its just gorgeous to wear all year round!

For some reason I was expecting a liquid lipstick type formula (I clearly didn't read the title of the product!) so I was taken aback when I saw that it has more of a sheen to it. I have to say, I do prefer that as for some reason I find matte lipsticks quite daunting to wear sometimes. The 'lacqeur' part of the formula is as suggested and therefore can be quite thick on the lips if you end up going heavy-handed with it. However, just adding a little bit goes a long way and can instantly brighten up my face for those 'no make-up' days. It lasts a pretty long time on the lips too especially given the sheer formula. It also fades evenly leaves a nice tint to the lips afterwards.

I personally love this and think it is perfect for those like me who want something casual for everyday and in a forgiving formula that you can just apply whenever/wherever you are! You can buy from Superdrug here

Mizon Multi Function Formula All In One Snail Repair Cream | Review

Mizon Multi Function Formula All In One Snail Repair Cream | Review

Mizon Multi Function Formula All In One Snail Repair Cream | Review

Applying Snail Cream to your face sounds crazy, right? Well, I thought so too until I read the benefits of what it can really do for your skin.

I won't bore you with all the jargon surrounding the specifics of what is behind the miracles of snail cream, so I direct you to this website which I found useful in understanding the science behind the product:

Instead, I thought I would just provide you with my thoughts and experience using the product. It looks like nothing irregular and so I didn't really find it weird to use as part of my skincare routine. The actual applying of the product was indeed very weird at first as it has a slimy, gloopy texture to it. I applied it to a freshly cleansed face and whilst it did absorb very nicely into the skin, I found that it didn't particularly moisturise it so I began to use it on top of my daily moisturiser.

After using it for a around 6 weeks on a regular basis, I did notice my skin was looking a little brighter and more plump. There was nothing drastic, but I guess that is because I don't really have wrinkles or extreme hyper-pigmentation in my skin. I have read many reviews saying this is great for allergy-prone skin or scars. It is also said to be great at fading fine-lines and reduce acne scars. As it says on the tube, it is a multi-use product and is perfectly suitable for healing any skin problems you may have. 

I love the whole concept of this cream and think it would be perfect for all skin types and a whole range of skin problems. With it being a total of 92% Snail Mucin (wow!), it is definitely worth a try as it means that the product is full of antioxidants, proteins, elastin and glycolic acids. This will keep your skin looking fresh, plump, moisturised, as well as fade scarring and protect the skin from further damage. 

You can buy it over at Cult Beauty here

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Liquid Lipstick in Stockholm | Review

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Liquid Lipstick in Stockholm | Review

With NYX cosmetics newly arriving to Boots, it was only right that I picked up a few bits. The most famous of their products has to be their soft matte lip creams, and as I soon found out, for good reason too. 

First of all the packaging. The product comes in this lovely little clear bottle that makes colour identification so much easier. The actual overall appearance is simple and cute, no complaints here! The applicator is really good too, as it is a doe-foot shape that fits the lips perfectly and applies product out evenly. 

The product itself is lovely. The pigmentation is wonderful, you only need one layer for a lovely opaque finish. I'd estimate that it takes around a minute to fully dry, which for a liquid lipstick that lasts all day is pretty great. Once on the lips and dry however, you literally can't feel it at all. Seriously. It feels like theres nothing on your lips so its great for those of you who despise the tacky feeling of some the lipsticks that are available.

I bought the shade Stockholm which is a gorgeous nude shade, that is more brown with pinky tones. I'd say it was a mix of Abu Dhabi (a more soft brown nude) and Cannes (a pinky shade) which I think really compliments my skin tone well. The great thing about these are that there are so many shades to choose from, I really need to get my hands on some more soon!

The lasting power is great too. It'll last around 4 hours on my lips, even when eating and drinking, and even when it does disappear, it fades evenly. This makes it great if you don't have time to reapply throughout the day. 

Overall, this is one heck of a great product. For only £5.50, it is defiantly worth checking out if you're looking for a new lipstick that actually lasts ages on the lips and are totally comfortable to wear. They are available at Boots here

Penguin Job Hack Event | #PRHJobHack

Penguin Job Hack Event | #PRHJobHack birmingham event

Last week Penguin Random House hosted their first ever Job Hack event. After going through the application process, I was lucky enough to secure myself a place to attend the newly introduced workshop in Birmingham.

Penguin is probably the most familiar publishers among us all, so you can imagine my excitement when I found out they were hosting a day to give advice to young people who were interested in the publishing sector and wanted to know more about what is involved in it.

As I study English literature at university, people automatically assume I want to be an author or a teacher (the amount of times people presume that is my dream job is unreal). I have always had a love for books and reading, but anything to do with writing or editorial roles just isn't for me. I was a bit lost, but I applied to attend this one-day event just to see what else there is to offer in a publishing environment that doesn't consistent of the two roles previously mentioned.

Penguin Job Hack Event | #PRHJobHack birmingham event pr

Penguin Job Hack Event | #PRHJobHack birmingham event

To my delight, there are many other careers that remain in the publishing sector but also involve other passions of mine. There were members of the Penguin Random House team who attended and gave us talks about their roles at the company and what they do, as well as explaining how they managed to get into the position they are now in. This gave a wonderful insight into what the world of publishing is like first-hand, and what we can do to enter it. Since I have a huge interest in PR and Marketing, I found it particularly interesting to hear what happens on a day-to-day basis as well as the difference between these two roles. There was also a lovely lady from the Digital Projects team who talked to us about her role in the publishing process, making me realise just how technology is incorporated into a world that is usually known for its traditional physical books.

Attending the event has made me realise that I do have a passion for the publishing industry, and that I shouldn't let myself feel boxed in just because I don't want to be an author or editor, or any roles that are commonly associated with the industry. Instead, it has given me the motivation I needed to pursue my passion of entering a company that I would truly enjoy working in (such as Penguin Random House of course!) and to work hard to get the position that I want. There are so many aspects of the publishing sector, like many companies actually, that there is sure to be something for everyone if you are really passionate about what they do.

This is the first of many Job Hack events that Penguin Random House hope to host, so I recommend to keep an eye out on their twitter account (@PRHcareersUK) to see if they are coming to an area near you because I found it helpful in clarifying what the publishing industry is all about.

Are you interested in the publishing industry? Or do your interests lie elsewhere? Leave a comment below.

Toad Diaries | My New Motivation to Organise My Life

Toad Diaries Motivation to Organise My Life

Now that university has finished, I am already looking ahead at starting my third and final year of my BA English degree. It may seem a bit early, but trust me there is a hell of a lot of reading and dissertation research to do so it is best to get ahead as much as possible. I really want to get the year off to a good start so I can maintain my workload without having that last minute rush where an all-nighter is needed to get assignments handed in time (it has happened before...).

What perfect way to get organised than a brand new diary! There is just something about a planner that makes you motivated to work harder and get organised both in university or school and life in general. The lovely ladies from Toad Diaries also attended the Blogger Tiki Party the other week and had contacted me to see if I would like to have my very own personalised diary. I was so excited as I feel like it is such a great idea to be able to create something that has everything you need to organise deadlines, lists, and whatever else you may need to jot down. What is even better is when a planner is so pretty that you actually want to use it!

Toad Diaries Motivation to Organise My Life pink planner

Toad Diaries Motivation to Organise My Life planner diary

The process in designing the diary was as straightforward as possible. All I did was go on to the Toad Diaries website and started to compile together all I wanted in my planner. It was really enjoyable designing the cover to find exactly what I wanted. There are pre-set designs but there is a great range to choose from. You can then choose what to have written on the cover, as well as the back cover (which was my personal favourite when personalising my planner). I chose this quote ("She believed she could so she did") as a little motivation for me for whenever I happen to need it, but you can also write a little gift message for the recipient of the diary to make for a great gift.

Toad Diaries Motivation to Organise My Life planner

You can also choose to have it A4 or A5 size, but I decided to choose the Quarto option which is between both of these, as I felt it would be perfect for me to keep it at home on my desk as well as small enough to take it in my bag whenever I need it. The diary style I chose was Cornell style which is perfect to see an overview of my week as well as note down any lists or or deadlines. They also give you the ability to choose how long you'd like the dates of your diary to span, as well as the month you'd like it to start which is great to make the most out of your purchase. There is also a selection of Notes pages at the end as well as this little pocket to keep notes in and amazing page of inspirational quotes.

Overall, the whole premise of Toad Diaries is a brilliant one and I would definitely recommend for anyone who needs that little push to get yourself organised for the year ahead. The features and personalisation you can add to the planner is brilliant and its really useful to have somewhere lovely to write down all the things you need to remember, especially because we all seem to be so busy nowadays.

Last Sunday I attended the Blogger Tiki Party, hosted by the lovely Kirsty. It was held at the Island Bar in Birmingham, which was a venue with such a cool vide inside. Just look at the art on the walls! The decor was great and everything fitted great with the tiki-holiday theme. 

There were a lovely range of brands there, all armed with their amazing products. I really enjoyed talking to them and finding more about who they were and the different products they offered.

This was a great event which I am grateful for attending! I loved attending meeting all the lovely fellow bloggers and chatting to them for hours, as well as talking to the bands about really interesting and innovative products.  I can't wait to attend some more events, it is such a great way to network and make new blogger friends.
