Essence cosmetics haul, makeup review

Hello! A few weeks ago Essence Cosmetics Malta held an event where you had a chance to take as much as you could in one hand, similar to a lucky dip. Since I love Essence cosmetics I decided to give it a try and I am definitely glad that I did!

dressgal, striped crop top, high-waisted denim jeans

Hello! Today I am showing you how I style my favourite pair of high-waisted denim shorts. I think that they are a summer must have since they are really versatile and everyone should own a pair.

The Body Shop blue corn 3-in-1 deep cleansing mask

Hello! A few weeks ago I went to The Body Shop to repurchase a face wash as I had finished the previous one. While I was there I decided to have a look around and noticed this mask which I had read many good reviews about. So I decided to purchase it to find out if it lives up to its name.

The blue corn 3-in-1 deep cleansing mask is suitable for normal and oily skin and promises to cleanse, exfoliate and purify. The light blue mask has a very thick consistency, although it's fairly easy to spread, with pieces of corn in it that help to exfoliate. The cost of this 100 ml tub is £11 which makes it fall on the pricier side but I do think that it's worth the money. To I apply first wash your face with a cleanser and then apply a generous amount on your face avoiding the eyes, nose and mouth. After 15-20 minutes remove the mask with a damp facecloth. It is recommended to use once or twice a week

After a few minutes, my face starts to feel a stinging sensation which it's not that pleasant. The smell doesn't have a really specific scent but it's not bad. Upon removing the mask I immediately see a difference in my skin, mostly my t-zone. Most of the blackheads on my nose disappear and my skin looks much brighter.

All in all, I'm really happy with the results and will definitely be repurchasing although I don't think that it will happen anytime soon as it will last for quite a while.

Have you tried this mask from The Body Shop?

Thanks for stopping by :)

Rome, Colosseum

Hello! It has been more than a week since I last updated my blog because I was away and also because I decided to have a little break. As I told you before I have been wanting to change the name of my blog but I'm getting second thoughts about the name I chose so I'm going to postpone that for another while.

Today I'm sharing with you some snaps from Rome. These are the places we visited. The trip wasn't sightseeing only as everyday we (the group) went to a home for homeless people where we helped with the cleaning, cooking and serving of food. Although big cities are not my favourites places to visit I really enjoyed my week in Rome and would gladly do this experience again.
