Timeless Truth Sheet Masks Review

Wednesday, 15 February 2017

Hi Loves, 

Todays post I am going to be reviewing 3 masks from the brand timeless truth* I have only ever used one sheet mask before trying these so I was really intrigued by them. Sheet masks are really popular in Korean skincare and they are also becoming rather popular all over including in the blogging community.

This mask is is made from snow algae found on the glaciers and compact snow in Switzerland. The plant contains amazing properties which help lock in the youthfulness of your skin. The serum in this mask absorbs quickly into the skin helping plump out fine lines. I have to be honest I was disappointed with this mask, it sounded amazing but it didn't really do anything for my skin. It was quit clammy on my skin which made it quite uncomfortable, when I took it off I rubbed the left over serum into my skin and it looked/felt no different. I don't know if this mask didn't work because I don't have wrinkles yet, as it is designed for all skin types it could work for those who need to fill in fine lines. But personally it didn't do anything for me. 

I was really looking forward to trying out this mask as my skin can, at times get quite oily. Charcoal masks and face washes have always worked really well with my skin. This particular mask is supposed to brighten, smooth, firm and hydrate the skin. This mask has a black powder in the mask which is the product of Moso Bamboo Charcoal Extract which has been proven to be highly absorbent and deep cleanse the skin. This mask was so easy to apply and it felt instantly cooling on my skin which I really enjoyed, whilst this mask was on my skin I decided to watch an episode of gossip girl. I ended up leaving the mask on for the entire episode as it was so relaxing.  After removing the mask I massaged the excess fluid into my skin until it was all absorbed. The first thing I noticed was how refreshed I felt, my skin was so soft and looked much brighter. I really really enjoyed using this mask and plan on buying some more soon. 

These eye masks are designed to reduce fine lines and crows feet, they are also designed to moisturise and reduce puffiness. I don't have an issue with wrinkles as I have said before as lets face it I am only 19, however I do have quite a lot of puffiness under my eyes. I have used quite a few of these types of masks before and I have always really enjoyed them. These masks felt absolutely amazing under my eyes they were so cooling and made me feel awake and refreshed (perfect for a hangover). I left these masks on my under eyes for half an hour, they stuck on really well and didn't feel as though they were going to fall off. Once I took them off my under-eyes felt so much more moisturised and awake. I loved these under-eye masks so much and like the charcoal mask, I plan on buying some more of these as I really think you would notice a huge difference if you use these on a regular basis!

Overall I was really impressed with Timeless Truth Sheet Masks and I plan on making an order soon from their website to try out some more of their masks. 

Have you tried sheet masks before?

Nip + Fab Glycolic Daily Cleansing Pads Review

Friday, 10 February 2017

Hi Loves, 

Today I thought I would share with you a little review of these Nip + Fab cleansing pads. I have seen quite a few people raving about these and have wanted to try them out for such a long time, I recently saw them in Boots at half price so thought I would give them a go. 

I am a lazy skincare type of girl, I would rather find 4 or 5 steps that work for instead of a crazy 20 step routine. These cleansing pads have glycolic Acid in them which is designed to retexture and resurface the skin. Hyaluronic acid is designed to moisturise and refresh the skin and finally Blue Daisy is designed to smooth and calm the skin. I have had problem with blemishes and redness so I thought that these cleansing pads would be perfect for sorting out my skin problems.

I use these pads at night after washing my face and before toning, I have been using them for about two weeks now and have already started to see some changes, my skin seems much clearer and brighter in just two weeks so I can't wait to see how much more my skin improves, the longer I use them. These cleansing pads have for sure become a staple in my skincare routine. There are a couple more pieces I am dying to try out from Nip + Fab and since these cleansing pads have worked out so well for my skin I think I'll be trying out some more products rather soon.

Have you ever used any products from Nip + Fab before?

February Goals & January in Review

Monday, 6 February 2017

Hi loves!

Can you believe we are already in the second month of 2017?! Nope neither can I! For me January was quite a successful month because I felt so motivated with it being a new year n"all. I didn't set myself too many goals in January as although there are lots of things I want to do, if I set lots of goals I find myself feeling overwhelmed and basically stick my head in the sand.

So my January Goals were as follows...

1: Post Twice A Day On Instagram.
Okay, this was my main goal for this month as I noticed my engagement was shockingly bad. I had lost so much motivation on my Instagram, I was just bored of it and found myself in a rut of not being bothered to post, so I decided to change that. I must admit I didn't post at least twice a day but for the most part I stuck to it and since doing that I have noticed my engagement and followers have improved so much!

2: Finish My Vanity/Office
A lot of you might know that I am wanting to split my vanity into an office desk as well as my vanity, so I have a designated blogging area. I have bought a few new things this month for the office section which literally represents my vision. It still isn't finished as I have a few more ideas I want to implement but for the most part I am happy with the progress.

3: Become More Active on Twitter
I have for sure become more active on Twitter which I love although I would still like to be more active. I have noticed that Twitter & the blogging community has become super bitchy which I HATE! Why do some people insist on being so nasty to others?! A lot of it comes from jealousy (not jealous of me just to clarify) but still it really isn't needed!! JUST BE KIND PEOPLE!

Okay now my February goals..

1: Learn To Manage Money Better
I am so bad for spending money on things I really don't need, which I need to stop doing. I find at the end of each month I am skint and have nothing to show for it. I am still going to treat myself (obviously) but I am going to ask myself, do I really want/need this before I buy something.

2: Cook More
This month I really want to cook more, I used to love cooking and trying new things but I recently have found myself not bothering, I have become lazy with cooking which results in me eating junk which isn't great.

3: Keep On Top Of Housework
Since working I have really struggled with finding a balance with blogging, work and housework. Don't get me wrong, my house isn't dirty it just gets messy is all. I bought 'The life changing magic of tidying up' book in January and it is so inspiring and motivating. I am planning on taking a day to gut out my house from junk we don't need, have a good ol' spring clean and then keep on top of it all :)

4: Interact More With Other Bloggers
I want to start putting myself out there a little more and talk to more bloggers. I speak to a couple of bloggers quite regularly but I really want to start building friendships with fellow bloggers.

What goals have you set yourself for this month?

Crown Brush Rose Gold Palette & Contour Brush Review

Sunday, 22 January 2017

Hi Dolls!

I hope you have all had an amazing weekend, todays post is a review of some new Crown Brush products. I have previously worked with Crown Bush before and I absolutely loved the products they previously sent me, so when they asked if there was anything else of theirs I wanted to try out I was so excited! If you want to read my previous review of Crown Brush products click here.

The first item I was sent was the Rose Gold Full Face Contour brush set which retail for £29.99, I was really intrigued by these brushes not only for their beautiful colour but also because the style of brush. These types of brushes have been blowing up in the blogging/Instagram beauty community so I really wanted to try some for myself. I have previously received some Crown Brush brushes and I love them, I use them basically everyday so I had high hopes for these ones. 

The first thing I noticed when un-packaging them were they are incredibly dense and super soft which I really liked. I used the larger one for my foundation which worked amazingly well it blended my foundation so effortlessly leaving my skin looking flawless, the brush didn't soak up much of my foundation which I was worried they might do. I then used the smaller of the three to blend out my concealer under my eyes which again blended the product like a dream. Finally I used the medium brush to set the concealer under my eyes with loose powder which worked really well too. I can definitely see why people like to use these types of brushes and I think I will be using them on a regular basis!

The second product Crown Brush sent me was their 35 colour Rose Gold Eyeshadow Palette, this palette retails for £22.99 which I think is such an amazing price for 35 amazing shades! The reason why I chose this palette is because I am really into warm orange/pinky eyeshadows at the moment, this palette has a very Morphe 35O feel to it, I personally don't have the Morphe palette but I think this would be a good dupe for it!

I swatched a few of my favourite shades literally as soon as I opened the palette and I can honestly say these shadows are so pigmented and creamy, I don't like describing powder shadows as creamy but thats literally the only way to describe them. The matte shades are just as pigmented and buttery as the shimmer shades which I find is quite rare in an eyeshadow palette. There is such an amazing range of shadows in this palette which gives you the opportunity to create so many stunning looks with just one palette. 

This is the first look I created using this palette and I absolutely love it, I cant wait to see what other looks I can create using this palette. There is a burgundy shade which I really want to use to create a bronzed smoky eye with the burgundy shade on my outer v rather than a black I would usually go for. I know for sure I am going to have loads of fun creating different looks using this palette which I will share on my Instagram (@chloedentonxo).

You can buy these products individually but you can also purchase them in a set which actually works out cheaper than buying them separately.

Flat Tummy Tea 4 Week Review

Sunday, 15 January 2017

Hi Loves!

Okay so two weeks ago I posted a two week review of the flat tummy detox tea, if you didn't read it feel free to do so here.

Flat Tummy Tea is a 2 step herbal detox tea, it is designed to naturally decrease bloating, boost your energy levels, support your metabolism and cleanse your system (improve digestion). You can choose between a two week cleanse or a 4 week cleanse. I was sent the 4 week cleanse to review (obvs).

The package came with two sachets of tea in a cute little zipper bag the first, larger bag is the Activate tea which you take first thing every morning. I was so worried about how the tea would taste as I don't usually like herbal teas but it was actually really nice. I would drink mine whilst getting ready for work in the morning giving the tea time to get into my system before eating and also giving it time to give me energy which it really does! I have found myself with much more energy since drinking the tea which, for me is essential as some days I have 5:30am starts! 

The second tea in the package is the cleanse tea which you take every other evening, I liked drinking mine about an hour before bed as it really helped to relax me and again it tasted really nice! I mentioned in my previous blogpost that these teas do really clear your out (soz for the TMI). If you're considering trying flat tummy tea don't panic thinking you'll have to run to the bathroom several times a day because it wasn't like that for me at all, you can just tell that it is really clearing you out.

My Verdict?

I bloody love this tea! It does exactly what it is supposed to do, I am less bloated and have loads more energy. At first I didn't notice many changes on the bloat front until I came on my period (more TMI sorry!). When I get my period I bloat like a bitch and feel so sluggish which I didn't get AT ALL!!! I had a hard stomach on the first day but that was only my muscles constricting in pain. I couldn't believe I didn't get any bloating at all. After mother natures visit I really started noticing how much my bloating had gone down. I am really impressed with this tea and love my results, I am planning on using this tea every couple of months to maintain my bloating because I really do love it.

Two week cleanse - £29.55
Four week cleanse - £40.23

Have you ever used a de-bloating tea?
