Hi everyone, I'm new here but you can find me over on the TalontedLex blog. I love skincare and nails... and am always looking at ways of combatting my rosacea... and you'll be seeing posts here from me about skincare of all sorts!!
I’ve been trying the Avon Clearskin Blackhead Clearing Deep Treatment Mask for a few weeks and my pores are so happy about it! I’ve used it 3 times a week on my chin and nose, which is where I get most of my blackheads and congestion.
The mask contains 0.5% salicylic acid to lift dirt and oil from the pores, clearing the skin of blackheads while also helping to prevent future congestion. My sensitive skin can sometimes be irritated by masks that dry on the skin, but this product doesn’t give me any kind of reaction or redness; it just left me with soft skin and dramatically reduced the appearance of my blackheads and uneven skin.
It’s a thin blue cream that is very easy to apply and feels soothing and cooling on the face. You leave it on the skin for 5 minutes (or until the cream has dried down to a white, matte finish) and then remove. A tip for removal, especially if you have sensitive skin like me, is to hold a damp flannel or muslin cloth over the dried mask for a few seconds: this rehydrates the mask, making it easier to remove!
If you have tried Blackhead Clearing Deep Treatment Mask... or any of the other Clearskin range... let me know!!
Last Friday we hosted a blogger and influencer event in London to celebrate the launch of mark. and its latest launch, mark. Liquid Lip.
The theme of the event was ‘Power to create’ so we gave the bloggers the chance to do just that, using mark. Liquid Lip and other products in the brand, the bloggers were able to create their own #mymark look. The influencers were then given time in front of the camera and a studio to create content for their own channels.
Make-up wasn’t the only goodie on offer, the influencers were treated to mark. doughnuts, meringues and pick and mix in the form of products- the dream!
Here are some snaps of what happened on the day...
Is there anything cosier than wrapping presents whilst a listening to the Christmas playlist that you’ve carefully curated especially for your festive traditions? I like to think that I’m fairly organized with life in general; I’ll make a list and I’ll check it twice. But there’s something about December that makes time go so quickly, I can barely keep up. They key for me this year is to keep is nice and simple.
I really enjoy going Christmas shopping, I fully embrace all of the festive vibes. I like wizzing around the high street in search of the perfect Christmas presents for my friends and family. My favourite part of the process is wrapping presents and writing cards. Some people might consider it a chore but I honestly find it so therapeutic! I put a lot of effort into making the gifts look really pretty, I’m all about the aesthetically-pleasing presentation. I’d make a great elf!
In previous years, I’ve been known to go a bit over the top – it’s difficult to know when to stop! Think tinsel, confetti and a copious amount of glitter, the whole shebang! However, this year, I’ve gone for subtle, understated white and silver gift wrap tied with polka dot ribbon.
Using a white gift wrap means you can dress it up with what ever embellishments you like. This can be a classic holly, festive fir, an aromatic dried slice of orange, cinnamon sticks, or miniature silver bells. Adding these decorations at the end makes all the difference; it looks like you’ve made a huge effort even though in reality, it takes less than 30 seconds to add the finishing touch. The rule of thumb is if it’s looks ‘Instagram-worthy’, then I know I’ve done a good enough job.
I honestly love nothing more than to wear my best PJ’s, switch the twinkling fairy lights on, burn my favourite Avon Winter candle, make myself a hot chocolate (filled to the brim with marshmallows), play some Christmas tunes on (or maybe a Christmas film – my favourite is Home Alone!), and wrap presents. I can literally do this for days on end!
I am so EXCITED to hear that Avon have collaborated with British fashion designer, Tabitha Webb, to create an all-exclusive collection which is set to launch this summer.
Out and about with Tabitha Webb Handbag
To make you stand out from the crowd, the collection consists of a handbag, weekender bag, purse, scarf, and umbrella. Spoilt for choice and not sure which one to go for? I’ve managed to get my hands on the handbag, weekender bag and the purse (I know I’m a very lucky gal!) so here is a closer look at them to help you decide which one to buy...
This gorgeous oxblood burgundy handbag looks so chic and sophisticated, I absolutely love it. It’s a structured bag that can look both formal and casual. I’ve gone for a smart casual look and the bag looks so great with the outfit.
There are three divided compartments (the middle one is zipped) and the strap is adjustable and detachable, which is a bonus because you can create two looks with one bag! There’s plenty of space to put all your essentials and more.
I’ve been using the Weekender Bag the most, as it’s such a great bag to put in all the things you need for a short weekend trip or an overnight stay at a friend’s house. It is extremely convenient for me to have a bag like this as I go back and forth quite a lot. I get compliments on it from friends, family, and even strangers...
This design is everything you want in a purse! It has a lovely gold hardware which looks so beautiful against the oxblood. On the inside, the purse is lined with a bold turquoise material which is a running theme to all of the bag designs in this collection. The purse has plenty of space to put your notes, coins, cards, and possibly even your phone on the inner compartment.
