SkinKissed Vitamin C Serum Review

Hello everyone I hope you have all had a lovely week and a very relaxing Sunday. Today’s blog post is another skin care post, lately I have been investing into my skincare more than my make up as it is so important to look after your skin.

Since I started high school (many years ago now) I suffered from acne, dark circles and hyper pigmentation in certain areas of my face. I think I speak on behalf of so many young girls out there in saying that this can really ruin your confidence levels, especially as a young teen.

I just turned 20 this year and I am still suffering from all the above so you name it I have tried it! With my skin being oily too, I have found a lot of products to be to harsh or oily for my skin. A product I have recently discovered in the SunKissed Vitamin C Serum, many serums I have used before I have found to be very oily and sticky! So after reading glorious reviews and doin countless research I gave it a go!

How will I help your skin?

• Plums and hydrates dry and dull skin

• Removes any acne on your skin

• Reduces wrinkles, fine lines & blemishes

• Leaves your skin feeling soft & fresh again

• Makes your skin look young again

•  The perfect base for your makeup

How does it work?

Main active ingredients contain: Vitamin C + Hyaluronic Acid  + Collagen

Each one of these ingredients carry powerful benefits which are designed to help you achieve healthy and natural looking skin.

Why use skinkissed serum?

• 30-day money back guarantee if you are not pleased with my results

• Carries very powerful and high percentages of active ingredients

• Contains no oil, so you will not experience any skin breakouts

• Leave a nice fresh fragrance on your skin

Never been tested on animals

My Opinion/Results

I have not put this stuff down since getting it, and I find that very rare to say with a skin product especially serums. Unlike most this does not feel oily on my skin something that I really look for in a product, the consistency is very smooth and sinks into the skin quickly not leaving that sticky feeling.

It states on their website that the serum works well as a base to your make up so I decided to give this ago too. Works GREAT as a primer makes applying cream products such as concealer and foundation so easy as they just glide so nicely around your face. Really does help to keep my make up on all day long, as well as this it also has really helped the condition of my skin when I remove my make up. Usually my skin is really dry and looks so tired when I remove my make up at night, however when I use the skin kissed serum as a primer I am finding it very soft and radiant.

The picture on the left below is me on the first night of trying out the serum, my skin was very lifeless, dark under eyes and a lot of hyper pigmentation. The picture below on the right is me now, about a month later. I can easily see a difference in my skin, overall I think it looks a lot my radiant and “plumped”

The Skin Kissed Serum is £39.95 HERE . However check out there page on amazon as they have been having some AMAZING offers on there recently CLICK HERE to visit SkinKissed on Amazon. For 20% off your whole order use the code melissaljonesx-20

The Body Shop Tea Tree Sleep Mask – Review

Hello, I haven’t blogged much lately as I have been so busy with work. I love The Body Shop and especially their Tea Tree range so when they brought out a sleep mask I couldn’t resist!

How do you apply it?

To apply this mask I have been been using a flat foundation brush that I always use for normal face masks. I always make sure I clean the brush before and after use. The Body Shop do an application brush too!

How does it feel?

Like all Tea Tree products I personally find they can tingle if you have open blemishes. The product does do this but not uncomfortably more tingly only lasts a few seconds. Then the mask is a little sticky for about 5/10 minutes until it soaks into your face. Once it’s all soaked up in your skin my face always feels fresh and clean! The actual mask it’s self feels like jelly and you do have to brush it around your face to blend it in as it is a little clumping when you first apply it.

My results

I never ever see much improvement from any skin care I always take a picture before and never see any result however I have with this! I took the “before” selfie on the 24/08/17 and today when I took the “after” selfie is the 29/08/17 so in one week I have seen such a result! I have been using this every night not sure on how often you’re supposed to use it but I have had no trouble using it everyday.

As you can see in the above before and after pictures my blemishes and redness have reduced dramatically in the short period of time!

Do I recommend?

100% if you are someone like me that suffers from oily and spot prone skin then this is definitely a product to consider it retails at £12 and you only need the slightest bit so it will last a while!

Thank you so much for reading hope this blog post helps at least one of my readers out!

Soap And Glory PORE REFINING MASK – review

When I saw these on Soap and Glory’s Instagram I could not resist so I was straight to boots and picked up the Pore Refining Sheet mask. Recently sheet masks are blowing up and every brand is bring out one or five different types.

I have oily skin, with blemishes and very dull skin so I am always looking for a mask that doesn’t leave my face oily!

I have to admit when I first opened the mask I was highly disappointed, it was soaking wet. I found it difficult to separate as it kept sticking and slipping out my hands, after separating the mask I popped it on my face to find it did not fit my face at all. It just didn’t fit the sides of my nose and my cheeks.

HOWEVER….

Despite the disaster so far, I wore the mask for 15 minutes like the instructions tell you. At first it tingles a little when you first apply the sheet to your face like a toner does sometimes, not uncomfortable more refreshing!  The mask has a fresh and fruity scent to it but not over powering, nor irritating to the skin!

After taking the mask off I dapped my face with a cotton pad just to get the excess product off my face.

My face 1 hour later is still soft, moisturised and my pores have reduced in size RESULT!

Would I buy this again?

YES. Really loved the result of this product, certainly the best sheet mask I have tried would recommend it over some of the other well known brands in Boots. Let me know your favourite sheet masks and thank you for reading!

Day Eight – Florida Diaries

After not getting back until late from the football we didn't wake up until gone 10 and we didn't really have any plans for today. So we just lazed about until 12 then went straight for some lunch in our hotel restaurant.

Undecided of what we were going to do today we decided on magic kingdom! By the time we had lunch and waited for a bus it was around 2, so we went on a few rides and used up our fast passes that we had left.

After being in Disney 8 days we still hadn't watched a parade we decided to wait until the next parade and watch one before we went home! Well it was amazing totally worth watching, I'm a little gutted we only watched the one but guess that made it more magical!

Here comes the rain…….. We decided to run back to catch the bus back to the hotel and we were fed up of getting wet.

After having so much fun playing golf yesterday we went to swan and dolphin and played their crazy golf which was BRILLIANT a total must!!

Then we hopped from park to park but everything was shutting so it was time to head to bed, ready for the last full day in Disney!

Day Seven – Florida Diaries

Day 7 was a little bit of a chill day we had nothing planed apart from a football game later on in the evening. So we decided to pop to blizzard beach and play crazy golf, there are two crazy golfs winter and summer and we played both.

However one hole in and a huge storm started and we had to stop playing, an hour later we were off and started playing. If you are looking for an afternoon to kill then I highly recommend crazy golf as it is so much fun.

We preferred the winter course to the summer but both were very fun!

After an afternoon of golf we headed back to the hotel and had some lunch before it was time to get ready for the football, which was in Downtown Orlando. It cost us $27 to get to Downtown Orlando for the game which is pretty steep, but were then told Uber put prices up when they know theres events on.

Its about a 20 minute drive from Disney to Downtown, we got into down town orlando and our Uber driver was taking short cuts through estates a little sceptical of course. Next minute our Uber driver informs us that we are in Paramore an estate in Florida with a very high crime rate GREAT! After being flagged down asked if we wanted to park on these peoples drives we finally got to the stadium!

The football was fantastic, nothing like a British match! Fans are brilliant and really get into the game, I am talking flares, songs and drums (apparently totally normal to stand on a platform banging a drum in America)! We both couldn't resist buying Orlando City shirts of course, they were on sale so even better!

We then left the stadium and walked with the crowd into Downtown Orlando as we had no idea where to go. After trying to find WIFI by standing outside numerous bars and restaurants we finally ordered an Uber back to our hotel!

We decided to grab some food from the hotel restaurant and took it back to our room, then we went to bed!
