Review: Manuka Doctor ApiNourish Rejuvenating Face Mask

Girls, I'm a huge fan of freebies, and I know some of you are too.

Today I'm going to recommend that you all head off to get your free sample pack (click here) of the Manuka Doctor facial kit, which contains 3 products that you can try. These all contain a special ingredient, bee venom, and what you will get are: 1) ApiClear Skin Serum, 2)ApiRefine Wrinkle Filler and 3) ApiNourish Facial Mask.

After trying the sample pack, I was motivated to do a review since the products worked really well. In particular, I want to review the last product, the Manuka Doctor ApiNourish Rejuvenating Face Mask.

After a tiresome day sleeping off the cursed "late-night/ hangover" from last night, I really needed to brighten up my dull, lifeless skin, I've recently gotten really dry skin which looks shine-less and quite yellow, so I wanted to take the chance to try my sample Manuka Doctor Face mask pack.

Review
The mask was unlike anything I've ever tried before. It's easy to apply and non-sticky, with a texture similar to a moisturising cream. It's thick, smells slightly sweet (but not of anything in particular) and when you apply, you only need a very thin layer. The layer sinks in after leaving it on your face for 20-30 minutes, which means it is totally absorbed by your skin.

I actually really like this mask because of it's non-sticky, non-wet texture. It's very easy to apply, and takes very little time to put on. This is very different from the normal face masks I use, which are either wet, troublesome peel-off masks from packs, or clay masks which get all over your hair, eyebrows and hands.

The mask contains bee venom, which contains antioxidant qualities and supports anti-ageing. According to the product description, regular use may also help reduce the look of scars. Unlike traditional masks that sit on the surface of the skin, the Manuka Doctor Bee Venom face mask’s nourishing formulation disappears into the skin. The mask didn't sting at all for me, nor did I have any side effects.

After leaving it on for 30 minutes, I washed it off with warm water. It was very easy to remove, and did not leave my hands sticky like other masks do when you wash it off. I'm very pleased with how my skin felt and looked afterwards- my skin literally glowed and was as smooth as a baby's skin! It felt really soft too, so that's a plus. The mask gave my face an extra smooth look for the rest of the night, and I'm really pleased with how clean and supple I felt afterwards. It seemed to control the oil from my face too.

I'd say this is better than any other face mask I have tried. Seriously, I have tried a lot of masks in my time, and I love this product. I'm going to keep using it this week and hopefully my skin will keep being smooth and soft. I'm tempted to buy the full-sized tub!

Photoshoot


A little town in Spring...Spring is a time for warm breezes, ice cream in the sun, long chats, even longer days, warmth and a prelude to summer. A wonderfully hectic prelude filled with exams, revision and unintended breakdowns, get-togethers and laughter.

I just need strength to get past the last two months of university and muster strength to ace my exams! It's startling that the year is almost over.... curse the short term breaks and the essay deadlines that everyone has to fight. I'm feeling a little sick lately, maybe it's the stress of doing nothing at all during the Easter break. You know how the days seem to float by, all hazy and fuzzy, and you have no memory of what has actually happened? I've been reserved and alone most of the time this holiday, in my little room, admiring the sun...

To all of you who are trying to revise, read and survive the exam months, let's do this together...

Bornpretty store: Watch Review

I went to Brighton during this dreary Easter break (more on this exciting trip in my next post!) so it was not surprising that I felt knackered after a 3 hour long train journey and walk back to university. I decided to check my mail box on the way to my room, and was pleasantly surprised to find that THIS little gift finally arrived! Exciting stuff, isn't it, these fashionable product reviews?

Bornpretty has a range of watches that are great for accessorising. My favourites are the LED watch and the bracelet watch, which are girly and chic to wear and style. I'm lucky enough to be able to review one of their signature bracelet watches for you, just so that I can try it out before you guys think about buying something from the store. Around 3 weeks after I ordered my chosen product, I finally received a lovely gift box in the mail that was beautifully wrapped. Take a look at it below!

I can't say how lovely this watch looks in real life. You know how things usually look better either in photos or in person (just like how girls look different in photos on Facebook)? Well, this watch looks even better in real life because it is quite delicate and stylish at the same time. The straps are made from leather and nylon, and interwoven with tiny golden chains. The watch itself is orange and gold, though you can choose from a range of colours available. It looks very vintage indeed, and it was quite lightweight and small without being hard to read the time off.

The back of the watch had two pieces of string that is adjustable, so it fits a wide range of sizes. One thing that was a big unusual was that the watch was slightly loose, just slightly. I can move it around, but maybe that's just me being small-wristed. Girls with bigger wrists would definitely fit better than me for this particular style. Other watches in the store are different, and I'm pretty sure they will clasp better. I also liked the fact that there's a delicate golden rose attached to the 2nd strap. It's really special because not many watches look so feminine and vintage at the same time!

Overall, I'm very pleased with the watch's quality and size, as well as it's colours and style. It was much more durable and stronger than I expected a small watch to be. Also, the little details on the watch and the straps makes it extra unique. It goes very well with clothing of any colour too. Personally, I rarely wear watches because I check my phone for the time (such a lazy modern woman) but I've always wanted to pick up the good habit of wearing a watch to tell the time. I'll be sure to wear this watch during the upcoming summer months!

Zazzy- 3D Jewellery Bracelet Review

Hey lovelies, I have a fantastic new accessory that I want to share with you today. It's been ages since I featured a product but I've been contacted by Zazzy, a custom 3-D jewellery maker specialising in customised bracelets and necklaces to do a product review. You guys should check out the site since it's beautifully designed. As well as the girly style, the fact that you can customise your own text makes it extra special and unique.

Zazzy uses precious and semi-precious metals like gold-plated brass, bronze and stainless steel to create jewelry which is designed by the customer. By allowing any text to be made into a holdable, touchable accessory, Zazzy allows the shopper to edit, remix and redesign their piece before ordering it in their choice of metals or colourful nylons. Their motto is: You do the chic, we do the geek!

Without further ado, here's what I received when I ordered one of Zazzy's cool 3-D bracelets...

WORDPLAY (€19.95): Wear your heart on your sleeve with these iconic 3D printed metal Wordplay bracelets.

They're absolutely beautiful and gorgeous! I think the pictures speak for themselves. There is nothing I don't like about these bracelets - they are delicate, feminine, yet unique and best of all, can have any text you want on it. The string is strong and won't break easily, and the bracelet is light and really airy so it will not make your wrists heave with the weight. The golden text really sparkles under light and the little details like the beads, the little tag and the beads that comes with the bracelet makes it a lovely piece of art. 

Usability of the site: 5/5 (very easy to use, quick to design)
Beauty of the product: 5/5 (I received a lot of compliments) 
Shipping time: 4/5 (it took a few weeks but it was worth every minute)
Uniqueness: 5/5 

Please check out their website and try making a few pieces! It's fun, easy to use and fully customisable. They have "Origami" styled shapes, honeycomb shapes, longer name texts and much more for you to choose from. Zazzy are also launching a new line of "Lyric pieces" which means that you can put your favourite lyrics from songs/ quotes from movies onto customised jewellery. I'm so happy to have a new piece to add to my collection- perfect for a relaxed afternoon trip with friends when you just want to have fun and show your style! 

Would you put your name on a bracelet?
