♥ Beneficial and Beautifying Oils ♥

I thought I would take some time out to share some information on a few types of oils you may want to include in your daily skincare routine.

1) Tea Tree Oil

Useful for dry skin and blemish prone skin, does not dry out your skin but has good anti-bacterial properties. I’ve recently started using a cleanser which contains tea tree oil, not only does it smell like a disinfectant but it actually makes me feel like it has totally cleaned out my skin from any possible impurities. Less bacteria means less spots! If you’re wondering about the name of my cleanser it’s ‘Tea Tree’ Exfoliating face scrub by Beauty Formulas, loving it so far. It comes in a squeezy tube and contains 150ml. Due to the oils anti-bacterial properties it is known to prevent rashes and allergies. Many people use it to clear their acne or dandruff, so quite clearly it has many uses, why not give it a go?

2) Argan Oil (Also known as Moroccan oil)

Argon oil contains vitamins E and other anti oxidants which protects the skin and hair from damage. Due to it’s moisturising properties, using it on your face will leave it feeling soft and hydrated. Whereas using it on your hair will leave it feeling silky and smooth. Argan oil sinks straight into the hair or skin, so you won’t feel sticky afterwards, if you’ve always dreamt of Cheryl Coles glossy locks, I think you should try re-create it using  tiny bit of Argan oil and see the difference.

3) Olive Oil

Olive oil is not only great with your food, but you can also use olive oil on your hair. I use it as a deep conditioning mask, just before I wash my hair, leave your hair dangling with the oil for approximately one hour, then wash your hair out with your usual shampoo and/or conditioner and once you’re out your hair will feel sooo soft and smooth, you’ll probably have trouble keeping your fingers from running through your hair =P
Not only will it feel great but you will notice that it works great at detangling your hair.

4) Amla Oil (Indian Gooseberry)

This smells funny in the hair, but if you feel like you’re losing hair, rub a bit of this in your scalp and your hair will grow back, thick and plenty. It is also known to reduce split ends and has been used in India for many many years as a remedy for keeping your hair beautiful and voluminous. If you don’t use an in-shower conditioner like me, then this works great, I use this if I run out of my leave-in conditioner. Due to it conditioning nature it can also be used to relieve a dry or itchy scalp =)

And there are many more beneficial oils out there, but this is all I will be discussing for now,

Hope you enjoyed this post, If you did don’t forget to LIKE and COMMENT

* Spring <3 Pictures *

Hey guys, me (Tj) and Tia thought we should take some Spring pics for you, please don’t complain about our messy garden and amateur photography skills. Plus these were taken by my phone, until, I can afford a decent camera *sigh*

Anyhow, the plants look great, although, most of them have been trampled on by a random cute little cat, who seems to have adopted us (I see him running in my neighbours garden right now lol)

Enjoy the pics =D (Some of them I’ve left full sized due to the utter yumminess)

Arghhh!! There are wasps in my Garden =O

So it’s that time of the year again, when the little BUG-gers do my head in.  I for one LOVE LOVE LOVE animals, but when it comes to insects, ewww, I feel grossed out even writing about them. My head spins, my voice goes all fuzzy and I get this really irritable itch all around my body.

And it seems to me that my cat probably hates these wasps too, I guess he noticed them first and stayed well clear of them. They decided to eat through my plant pots and chip of the sides of my shed in order to build their home.

My dad decided to relocate their home where my cat won’t be stung, but no, they were pretty adamant to build their home inside the shed, so instead of sticking to their old, half built home, they decided to make a new one. Ugh!

Anyways the winter came and they died out and their wonderfully structured home remained. I asked my uncle to bring it out so I can take pictures of it, to show you all. Unfortunately those pictures were long forgotten until today when I noticed the wasps flying around my shed. I knew then that they were back and BACK WITH A VENGEANCE. I don’t think they’re EVER going to leave my house. They love us too much.

Anyways, enjoy the pics:

*NEW* Garnier Moisture Match

So the new Garnier Moisture Match tailor-made moisturisers are out in the UK. I haven’t heard any reviews about them yet, but I couldn’t wait to try them all out, since they had one especially made for dry skin and it can get really dry here in England especially in the Winter, but even now in Spring, the cold weather doesn’t seem to want to leave us alone =(

I believe there are 5 different varieties, it may be different in other countries, but here’s what they have here,

1) ‘Shine Be Gone’ (Combination to oily) Green
2) ‘Goodbye dry’ (Dry to very dry) Pink3) ‘Start Afresh’ (Normal to dry) Blue
4) Protect and glow’ (Normal) Yellow
5) ‘Wake me up’ (Dull Skin) Peach

2013-06-01 14.16.33

I think it’s mega cool that each one comes out in the colour of the tube, I have received samples the yellow, peach and blue ones. I did request the pink one, but they had already ran out of samples for the dry skin formulated one, which is a huge bummer, I guess I was a late comer to the freebies party. I hate buying products just to try them, but I’m going to have to now 😀

I’ve already tried out the Blue ‘Start Afresh’ one and it feels really smooth and nice on the skin. I love how it just melts in and doesn’t leave your skin feeling sticky. It has a nice scent to it, that really smells clean and fresh. A slight tint of watermelon methinks. It kind of reminds me of a spa, you feel pampered and it’s just great.

2013-06-01 14.17.22

Certainly will be buying the full-sized one when I get the chance and will update you on how the rest of the ones I got sent were like and hopefully the pink one too.
