Hey guys!!! I’m finally back. Life got in the way for quite a while!!! I had to study to get back into college (which I succeeded in), then I had so much college work to do that I had very little time to do anything. Plus I got a boyfriend and he takes up a lot of my time. Anyway, I have a little break before I go on work experience so I have time to do some more blogging and hopefully vlogging!

On to the review!!!

This is the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief gel cream. It can be used as a moisturiser or as a face mask.

Texture: Thick gel formula

Smell: Unscented but has a light natural fragrance that is barely noticable

Price: Very expensive – currently €43.50 in Debenhams for 50ml.

Skin type: Any

My Opinion It works really well. When I first put it on my skin didn’t feel moisturised at all (it actually felt a little dry) but after about half an hour my skin was soft, smooth and felt really fresh. It took a few minutes to absorb so it shouldn’t be used if you’re in a hurry. I used it after a clay mask so my skin was rather dry when I applied it. I didn’t wash my face before bed and my skin still felt moisturised the following morning (and I had slept for about 10 hours so it was quite a while). Definitely long lasting. I would also like to add that I normally have an oily T-zone and even the next morning my skin was still matt! Also you only need a really small amount to cover the entire face so the tub should last quite a long time. It didn’t cause me any breakouts and didn’t irritate my sensitive skin.

Recommended: Definitely if you can afford it. (I got it as a trial size when I bought a few other things from the company)

Final Thoughts: It’s not a product I would use on an everyday basis purely because it is so expensive. I would use this weekly as a moisture boost after a long week or a night out and your skin needs a pick me up. My skin looked and felt really healthy after using it. A really nice treat for your skin!!

Alternative Products: The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink In Moisture Mask – costs about €17. Not quite as good but a good alternative for a significantly cheaper price.


So I just filmed part of a face mask tutorial video and I thought I’d share a little picture with you!!

In case anyone is wondering I’m using the MyBeautyDiary sheet mask in Apple Polyphenol. I bought them on!!!

On a side note, I’m really loving Bigbang’s new song Fantastic Baby. Also loving Ed Sheeran!!!

Hey guys!!!

So, I woke up this morning and went into the bathroom as per normal. However!!!! When I looked in the mirror my entire  face was red and I had a pile of pimples all over my face!!! I looked completely horrific!!!

So the first thing I did was rinse my face to try to get some of whatever it was that caused it off of my face. Then I took a leaf out of Bubzbeauty’s book and got myself a handful of dry oats to cleanse with. She said she did that when she had an allergic reaction so I decided there was no harm in it!! See her video here:

My skin felt really good afterwards. It was really soft and  the oatmeal really relieved the itchiness!!!! Then I applied some Eu Roma Water from LUSH and some cucumber water from Kuan Yuan Lian (an Asian company). This really helped to sooth my skin and reduced the redness!!

The cucumber water is very good for burned skin and that’s what my skin looked like so I gave it a go and it worked really well. I applied it regularly!! I haven’t done this yet since I’ve only been up for about an hour  but I’m going to make some oat milk to use on my skin aswell and I’ll keep it in the fridge so that it’s nice an refreshing!! It’s really easy to make. All you need is a handful of oats soaked in water for about half an hour and then strain out the oats!! (Oats can be saved for a body exfoliator later). I also need to moisturise so I need to look around the house for something gentle and preferably unscented!!

Unfortunately all of this means that, once again, I can’t make a video for my youtube channel. Hopefully my skin will be better later in the day and I might be able to make a small one!!!

Bye for now!!


Ps. I think it was the clenser I tried out yesterday that caused the reaction. It was the Neutrogena grapefruit cleanser.
