<img src="Alvira Charcoal Pore Strips.jpeg" alt="Alvira Skin Essentials charcoal pore strips from Action" title="Alvira Skin Essentials charcoal pore strips from Action'' />
Last week I picked up a box of charcoal pore strips from Action. The charcoal pore strips are from Alvira Skin Essentials: a skincare line that offers a extensive range of affordable products for beautiful and healthy-looking skin. Also good to know is that the complete line is dermatologically tested and largely free of parabens.

I heard a lot of good things about charcoal pore strips and after watching so many YouTube videos about it, I just had to try it myself. Especially with having combination skin I regularly get unpleasant surprises from blackheads that keep popping up on my nose. The charcoal pore strips from Alvira Skin Essentials claim to remove blackheads and cleanse pores. I’m very anxious to see if this product works.

<img src="The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream.jpeg" alt="The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream" title="The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream'' />
Today I’m reviewing one of The Body Shop’s best sellers: the Vitamin E Moisture Cream. I’ve been using this product for a while now so it’s time to share my experience. I have combination skin which means that I mostly have dry skin except for my T-zone. The lightweighted Vitamin E Moisture Cream promises to protect the skin and locks in moisture for 48 hours of hydration without leaving the skin greasy. I will also be reviewing the Vitamin E Eye Cream that I’ve been using as well. The Vitamin E Eye Cream is supposed to hydrate the delicate skin around the eyes and help reduce fine lines and dark circles. According to The Body Shop both products are suitable for all skin types. Well, that all sounds very promising. But can these products live up to their promises? Let’s find out.

Okay I’m not entirely blonde but I did get myself a blonde balayage! I just needed to make a change cause my hair was dull, heavy and really frizzy.

Well this time it is anything but subtle but I absolutely love it!

DIY | Turmeric Face Mask

When the weather is getting colder, it can be really tempting sometimes to turn your heater all the way up. Taking a long hot shower after coming home from work, starts to feel like the best thing in the world. How nice as it sounds, your skin will be less excited about it. During fall and winter season our skin can often feel dry and itchy.

That’s why it’s so important to hydrate our skin as much as possible. By drinking tons of water and moisturizing your skin, you’re already halfway there. But now that summer is over, we really have to prepare ourselves for the cold days. A weekly face mask will give your skin a hydration boost and will protect your skin from external influences. I used to buy my face masks at the drugstore but making them with ingredients that I can find in my kitchen is way more fun!
