Skinfood Mud Mask :: First Impression

For my birthday I finally treated myself to the Skinfood Mud Mask. I have seen so many raving reviews so i finally took the plunge and got it while it was on special at my local Countdown Supermarket for $10.49.

Obviously as soon as the kids were asleep in bed, I couldn’t have whipped the box open fast enough.. well not before taking an instagram pic of course!

I took all of my makeup off with coconut oil, washed my face with my Benzac Facial Scrub to really clean my face and help with blackheads. The Instructions state to apply a thick layer all over the skin.

One warning i have with this product, is that if it is too close to the eye area it does tend to sting your eyes, so i recommend to only go up to the eye socket area.

I left it on for 15 minutes and then washed it off with a hot flannel. Instantly i noticed my skin was softer, my pores appeared smaller and my complexion felt smoother.

I followed it up with my new Rose Hip Oil Serum  and my Simple Vital Vitamin Night Cream and Nutrimetics Sensitive Eye Cream

My skin has never glowed like this before nor did it feel as soft and smooth. I have used this mask 3 times now and each time my pores look smaller and my skin feel softer. My Make up applies so much nicer and overall i just feel better in myself. I definitely recommend all of these products. I will also do a follow up of these items including the rosehip oil after i have used them for a little while.

Have you tried these products before? Did they work for you?

#TBT My First YouTube Video

So on Monday, I was looking through my old videos to show a friend on twitter that you can still do a make up video without having the High end filming equipment that most girls use today. In looking back for My First Make up Tutorial i also stumbled across my first ever YouTube video and man does it make me cringe!

My First YouTube Video!

It was a 46 Questions tag to introduce myself and it was filmed on an old boxy, White Macbook Pro in photobooth! I was nervous as hell pausing on questions like when is your birthday because I wasnt sure if i should say the year, I kept looking at myself in the screen and playing with my hair, and i was trying way too hard to make sure i looked the part.

More importantly, the point of this blog post is that.. I do not recognise that person. It was Pre Children, Pre baby body, like 30-40kgs lighter, and not to mention the overkill side part!

In listening to the answers I realized that I lied to make myself seem more interesting and generic to the other beauty vloggers, Half of the answers i wouldn’t even think to pick now, like my fave restaurant? Pah lease! i went there once and i NEVER eat at restaurants, since then (5 years ago) i have been to a handful of places. And my fave snack, are you kidding me?! Unsalted peanuts? who the fuck are you! and by the way they are NOT really good for you, DOOFUS!

I was trying so hard that I don’t even recognise who she is, and while i may love the fact that she is a lot slimmer and loved herself alot more than I do I’m more true to who I am now and honest about my thoughts and opinions.

What did you think of the video? Do you look back and wonder the same? how far have you come? What is your throwback?
