#SKINCARE | REN clarimatte range review for oily/combi skin

 Hi guys! I got around to writing this post after I promised it a while back, but I had to be sure of what results I got before I recommended or said no to buying. I'm actually using my new laptop for the first time and the keyboard on this makes it so much easier :) happy Sarah haha.
More news before I get on to this post, who has seen the blogger's essentials box from Dot Creates?!
I am the biggest stationary lover and everything in the box looks amazing.

 Back to the REN post!
I haven't previously used any REN products, so for me this was such a gamble. Tbh I hadn't really heard too much about REN but the 2 things I did like when I read more about them is 1. They are vegan friendly (aside from about 6 products) and 2. They do no test on animals. One of my things at the moment is buying makeup and skin care products that do not test on animals, so what a big plus that is.
I bought this clarimatte pack as my skin tends to be oily/combo and it retails
at £15.

Detox Mask
The mask was the first thing I used and I had an amazing picture in my head of the mask being like the charcoal mask and pulling out all the dirt. Soo it wasn't at all like that, I put it on my skin and left it to dry out for a bit , once I was ready to take it off I used a warm flannel. My skin was quite red underneath, I guess it was due to the rubbing of the flannel which caused blood cells to rush to the surface but I don't feel like my skin was deep cleaned like I would of expected this mask to do. I'm thinking of trying a different mask from another range maybe?
 T-Zone balancing gel

This gel was probably my favourite from the bunch, if anything I felt it helped to control the oil on my face. I had a theory that as it is more of a gel texture than a cream that's why it wasn't sitting on my skin like some creams can do. So if anything I would recommend this product if you suffer from oily skin.

T-Zone cleansing gel

I used the cleanser a couple of times before I realised that it was making me breakout a lot, in truth that's a good thing as it is making all the dirt and bad toxins rise to the surface but then I was stuck with bad skin for a while. My skin did feel fresh and clean after I used it but now I want to try some other ranges too to see what effect they have.

Any recommendations?

#BEAUTY | MY favourite ever!

Yesss i am a lash addict...even if im not wearing them i am hoarding them. Here are a few of my faves, most of them will be wispy, invisi band lashes with the odd OTT lashes as i do like my lashes to look as real as possible. Huda Beauty : Scarlett lash - h'omg, these lashes are the ultimate out there lash. They really give me the old hollywood glamour feels and really make your eyes pop. I love these as a high end, luxury lash as they are very pricey!! But 100% worth it. Lash Unlimited : DBL range - i always loved the original range from this brand  the #7 and #9 are so so pretty so when they brought out the DBL range i was really blown away, the lashes are more thicker and have like a double layer and some of the styles remind me of the lilly ghalichi lashes! These lashes are great quality for the low price! Nouveau Lashes : Natural/ Style 3 - Being a member of the #LashGang makes me a little biased here! Well, i say that but im not re

#REVIEW | Ammonia FREE hair dye w/ NATURIGIN

There are a lot of hair dyes on the current market and when i am shopping for one i tend to normally stick to one or two brands, more than anything it is to do with price rather than being about a brand i love. All hair dyes have a variety of colours and there ist much else that sets them apart, so for me i am easily swayed and will give most brands a go! Enter... NATURIGIN . This posts is actually a little overdue, sorry guys! I met the lovely people behind the brand at the blogger hangout event which you can read HERE and they told me the wonders about the hair dye. Basically the biggest selling point or best asset shall i say of this product is the fact that it is ammonia free and organic based! The dye itself is free of ammonia, which means it doesnt have the smell of a chemical lab!! I was so pleased and pleasently suprised with the smell of the dye. I really had no idea what to expect but it wasnt at all that strong bleachy smell it was so much more toned down.
