There has been so many posts on social media of the charcoal mask and I wanted to see what the fuss was about..
Having only used spa or professional medical products, I always turned my nose up at high street brands and especially cheep products because I’ve always thought they are cheep for a reason. I’m conscious of ingredients they put in the products so I managed to find a clean low price brand in Boots today.
Product no 1- Yes To Cucumber 2 step eye mask- No Paraben, SLS or silicones (£4.99)
This must be a fairly good quality product then? Nope not at all! It didn’t have any effect and I also struggled to even put it on. Packaging also a nightmare to open not easy at all so I gave this product 2 out of 10. I was disappointed that it didn’t feel like jelly
Product no 2- Yes To Tomatoes– 2 step mask- No Paraben, SLS or silicones (£4.99)
Once again doesn’t contain any nasty ingredients and is 95% natural. I also found this hard to open and just a really odd product in general. I was expecting it to be a rubber tight mask but it didn’t stay on very well and had no impact on my blackhead or pores at all! Also going to give this a 2 out of 10.

As I’ve been in the skin care industry and have been educated in skin for over thirteen years. It was important for me to talk through a step by step to beautiful skin.
Step 1- Cleanse, not with face wipes or soap!
Step 2- Serum- This sinks in deeper and will give you the best result for your skin and will work better as a treatment for a specific concern.
Step 3- Moisturise- Day cream with SPF and night cream.

I welcome all comments and questions as I will be happy to help. I suffered with acne and I know how hard it is and would love to help anyone who might be in the same situation or if you know someone who suffers with any skin issues. Please share my blog and YouTube posts and will plan to do a skin care Q&A video once I have a few questions.
Thanks for reading!
Until next time
Trying to go more with the trends and put myself out there more so I made a promise to myself that I will just go for it…. no matter how silly or stupid I might feel or be made to feel. I try to live by the motto “No Regrets” maybe I should have it tattooed? Hence writing this blog.
I turned 30 in February and this year and I made some big decisions that will change my life quite dramatically.
I was working in a job that I really started to hate and it was making me feel deflated and anxious all the time and even over the Christmas break. I then decided a change needs to happen and a big one at that. I handed my notice in and made the decision to work overseas and use it as an opportunity to ‘find myself’ and cheesy as that sounds. So within a week the huge weight and black cloud started to lift off my shoulders. I made the mature decision to find a temporary position whilst I look for a role as I knew it would take some time and I wasn’t in any real hurry to jump ship straight away.
I called a good friend of mine who I actually saw a week before I had finished work late, I was really stressed but tried to hide it all by making out that it was all fine and dandy. I think she knew I wasn’t happy and was not surprized when I asked for a therapist position in her spa. Phew! she could accommodate a position for me so I was delighted and since I have been working there it has made it clear that I love the beauty industry and has given me my passion back.
Why will my life change?
A few weeks ago I was offered a position to run a trendy day spa in Dubai!
This will be the first time I have lived and worked in another country and also the first time that I have been to Dubai and the Middle East.
I am now in the process of organising my medical and visa and due to leave mid to end of May. I’m also trying to spend as much time with family and close friends before I depart but as you would imagine a lot of them will be visiting me soon.
This picture is of me in Amsterdam at the W hotel living it up. This was a very fun day and weekend I spent out there with some close friends of mine.
Until next time
