Skincare Must Haves

Hey, so a few weeks ago I was having a bit of trouble with my skin which is really rare for me. I'm not usually the one to get spots but when I do I have no idea how to treat them or what kind of products to use. However my fave skincare brand ever has to be Nspa, which is  a brand I've talked about before.
In the end I chose these two: Hot Cloth Cleanser & Skin Glow Mud Mask. 
If anyone has read my blog for over a year you'll know that I did have a little gift set full of nspa goodies and this product was also included, which is one of the reasons I picked it up (as well as the offer haha). I do really like this and I have gotten into the routine now of using it every morning and night and I've noticed how much more moisturised and soft my skin feels. If you are looking into trying the Liz Earl hot cloth cleanser I would recommend giving this a go first for a fraction of the price as they are essentially the same thing and both do the job. You can also use this to remove your make up, but I don't like to do this I just take my make up off with a micellar water and then go in with this after, as I think this way is a lot more effective for me.  P.S - also comes with muslin cloth.

Facemasks have always been a fave of mine, I just really like the feel of this one and what my skin looks like after using it. I use this probably twice or three times a week depending on how my skins looking at the time. The only problem I have with this is that it can be quite drying so if you do get yourself this i'd recommend always applying a moisturiser after. But apart from that I feel like this has worked really well and has helped to clear up my skin.
Have you tried any of these products before?

Irresistible Me Diamond Hair Straightner | Review

Hey :) I'm really excited to share with you this straightener today because I love it and have been using it non stop since the day I got it. It's by the brand Irresistible Me and they kindly sent it to me so I could try it out and tell all of you how I've got on with it. Up to now I love it and love the design of this straightener and how it much so that I've actually thrown my other one away haha. First of all I'm gonna talk about how cool the whole box is! Probably one of the nicest packaged hair tools I've ever received, also the box tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the straightener and comes with a little guide book too which gives you information on what heat settings to use for your hair type in case your unsure.

The straighter includes:
- Diamond Nano Hi-Tech Plates
- Heat resistant cover
- Buttons on the inside of the straightener to control the heat settings and turn on and off
- Auto Shut Off
- Fast Heat Up
- 360 Cord
- Light Weight
- Grip at the top
- Maximum temp of 230c

I think that this is one of the best and well designed hair straighteners ever! They have thought of everything to make it the best it can possibly be and yes I can confirm that all of the above are true.
I think my favourite features to this is that the plates have grip to them and have a heat resistant cover, which means I'm now able to straighten and curl my hair without it slipping out my fingers or burning myself which actually happens to me a lot.

Okay so in these photos below is my 100% natural hair, I'd washed it the night before and had let it dry naturally and this is what I always do. As you cans see my hair is pretty straight naturally, but it does go wavy and very frizzy too.
The heat setting I used was 170 because my hair is quite thick. To straighten my whole hair it only took me around 5/6 mins (i'm not kidding).
The straightener is so easy to use and doesn't pull or tug on your hair when using it, my hair just glides smoothly through it causing me no pain which i'm sure if you use hair curlers/straighteners yourself you can relate to.

And this is what my hair looks like when it's all been straightened (I'm sorry if your tired of reading that word now) without styling or adding any product in it. I have used this so many times and my hair stays the same all day and can last up to 2 days on me. I have also used this to curl my hair and it curls it really well and they also last a really long time, the only thing i'll do differently is change the heat settings to a slightly higher one. But if you'd like to see how I curl my hair with a straightener then click HERE.

I honestly can't fault this straightener and I'll be sure to continue to use it. If you'd like me to write another post using this straightener, maybe on a few hairstyles you can achieve with this then let me know :)
