Why you should be putting oils on yo' face



In this day and age I find it really hard to believe that there's brands out that tell people not to put oil on their faces, particularly if they have oily skin! I mean c'mon people!!!

In order to be healthy all skin types, including oily, need a balance of water and oil and the right oil can be especially beneficial oily skin as it balances the oil production. You fight fire with fire, if you give your skin the oils it needs, it won't need to produce as much sebum. Most people think they have oily skin but what they have is unbalanced skin that is dehydrated and so it produces more oil to try and balance itself.

REVIEW Yes To Carrots Scalp Relief Shampoo

Apologies for not using an image of my actual product but it's so dark in my flat right now that all pictures come out horrible.


A little while ago I discovered I suffer from chronic scalp eczema, which very painful, itchy and look shorrible. If I'm having a really bag flare up (as I am at the moment) I can't wear any black clothes or they will be full of scales in a matter of hours after washing my hair. 

I've tried a different million shampoos and when I saw this sulfate-free shampoo, promising to relief my irritated scalp in 8 days, at Boots, I didn't hesitate to give it a go.

I have been using DHC products for a couple of years now but I don't think I've ever talked about them before. I've tried countless of their skincare and makeup but funnily enough I don't I have ever tried they're start product, the Deep Cleansing oil. 

I've finished both these products a few months ago and have just found these pictures on my laptop so I'll give you a quick opinion on them.

SWACTHES Nyx Ultimate Shadow Palette - Warm Neutrals



I got my eye on this palette ever since Jamie Page spoke about it on this video with exact dupes for every shadow on the Kyshadow Burgundy Palette. I have far too many eye shadows to justify buying the Kyshadow palette but this Nyx palette seemed to have close enough shades so I went ahead and got it.
