DIY Lip scrub
Pocket sized tins can be found on Amazon!

Let’s face it when it comes to the art of seduction, crusty chapped lips are not remotely sexy, and while there are a lot of products out there to help you achieve smooth kissable lips, it’s always handy to know how to make your own.

I have got my eye on you!

Now if you have time to prepare, you can increase your desirability by adding a range of different tastes and fragrances to the lip scrub to simulate the sense’s and leave your lips looking so kissable, they won’t be able to keep their own lips off you.  (If they are the adventurous type maybe you could even help exfoliate each other’s lips 😉 )

You can use white or brown sugar (even a blend of both) as the base of your scrub. I used brown for mine. Naturally Balmy  on Amazon sell loads of different flavoured oils that are safe to use (and also handy little pocket sized tins to store the scrub in). I used Rose flavour for mine.  You can add essential oils to make the scrub smell divine and use different oil bases depending on your skins different needs.

I used organic Rosehip oil from trilogy in mine, this oil is amazing you can add it to Face, hand and body creams when your skin needs that extra boost (great for reducing scaring too!) Rosehip oil contains essential fatty acids (omega 3 and 6) which repair and hydrate the skin – Perfect for healing and plumping dry chapped lips. (You could also use, almond oil, jojoba oil and coconut oil)

I used rose essential oil, because I just love the smell, to me it oozes femininity and sex appeal.

To make the lip scrub, just combine 1tsp of sugar to 1tsp of oil (just increase the amount to make a bigger batch) add a couple drops of flavour oil and essential oil.  Use 2 times a week.

And that’s really all there is to it!! So go on… Go snog until your lips fall off!!

Sex Toys…That Don’t Look like Sex Toys

Sometimes I wonder if an un-savvy beauty addict (I know sacrilege) walked in to my bathroom, they would think I was into all kinds of weird stuff. (Not to say that I am not 😉 )

Butt plugs or foundation sponges
Butt plugs? Love eggs?
No.. contour sponges
Magic wand
Clitoral Vibrator?
No face massager (review coming soon!)

So in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, 50 shades of grey (yes I know it doesn’t represent BDSM accurately) and women doing it for themselves (literally), I had a look on the internet to see if I could find sex toys that don’t look like..erm sex toys!

How To Tint Your Own Eyelashes…

Ok, so you want to know how I tint my own eyelashes. (Please excuse the puffy red eyes, my mother is in hospital at the moment, hence why I am tinting my lashes rather than wearing mascara..I hate waterproof mascara)

First off let me tell you a few things first.

  1. If you get tint in your eye it HURTS like a BITCH!
  2. You need a steady hand!
  3. If you cannot put mascara on, without your eyes watering or rapid blinking, DO NOT attempt to tint your own eyelashes (see number 1)
  4. Always do a patch test BEFORE you tint!
  5. Beware that tint stains everything!
  6. I do not take any responsibility, for those of you that try this!

Still want to have a go? Make sure eyelashes are free of make-up and clean well.

Eyelash tint
I Get mine from Sallys, but they also sell kits on amazon.

You will need

Tint

Brush

Mixing Dish

Tint activating solution

Make up wipes

Q-tips (Cotton buds)

Optional:

Barrier cream

Shot of vodka

First off, decide what colour you want, I do a mixture of blue tint and black tint. (The blue adds more depth to the black tint)

In your mixing dish add your tint (read the instructions)and solution (its normally two drops of the tint activating solution, but this can vary depending on what brand you use.) Mix well with your tinting brush, until tint is smooth. You want the mixture to be thick…NOT runny (that’s just asking for trouble)

Now at this point you can protect your skin with barrier cream, by using a Q-tip to apply to the upper and lower lash line. But be careful not to get it directly on your lashes, because the tint won’t develop.

I don’t use cream, because a) I can’t be arsed and B) I actually add it to my lash line because I like the effect, looks sort of smudgy.

How to do your own eyelash tint
You want a nice smooth tint, thick and not runny!

Now with a steady hand, paint your upper lashes first, making sure they are well covered on top (look down), and underneath (look up) DO NOT at any point close your eye! – Once you’re happy with coverage use a Q-tip to remove any excess tint from corners, looking out for blobs that could fall into your eye (ALWAYS sweep outwards)

Now paint tint on your lower lashes, again use Q-tip to remove any excess.

Repeat on other side. I leave mine to develop for Ten minutes.

Now the fun part (Now feel free to do that shot of vodka) Start with the eye you applied the tint to first, and grab some make-up wipes and some clean Q-tips

The trick to removing tint, is to keep your eyes wide open, and to wipe outwards at all times!!

I start with the lower lashes first, I put the wipe under lashes (so on the lower lash line) and use a dry Q-tip to remove most of it, by rolling it downward on the lashes, pressing them into the wipe.

Clean the upper lashes by, putting the wipe under your top lashes (this is why you need to be ok with touching your eyes, see picture) and use the rolling technique as described above. Once you’re happy that most of its off, grab a clean wipe, and sweep it across your lashes in an upward and outward motion

How to do your own eyelash tint
Never wipe towards your eye!

Place wipe under top lashes and use Q-tip to press lashes on to wipe
How to do your own eyelash tint
wipe until you feel clean

Now use a new wipe on your entire eye, and clean as you would when removing your eye make up until your happy all residue is gone.

Now repeat on other eye! Now you might get a little stinging should you get a little bit of residue in your eye, just keep cleaning and wiping outward…your be able to handle it, I promise.

Now should you get a bit of tint in your eye, don’t freak out, yes it stings like a bitch, yes you will probably swear a lot…but you’re not going to die! Just use Q-tip to remove  the blob, and remove as instructed above.

How to tint your own eyelashes
Before and After.
How to do your own eyelash tint
You will need to repeat every 4-6 weeks 😉

Lastly don’t go obsessing about getting every last bit off. As long as you are able to get a majority of it off you will be fine. If you wipe your eyes too much or too roughly then you will end up looking like a panda, or you could make them all red and puffy which is never a good look. The skin around your eyes is delicate so be nice.

When your riding the emotional roller coaster, have never ending panda eyes and detest waterproof mascara, best to tint your eyelashes! (Yep I do my own) #notthefainthearted (blog post coming soon)

Another add bonus to not wearing any makeup is not having to wash your face, so you can collapse straight in bed #skankybitch

Just having to embrace the constant red rings around my eyes and pale skin#vampirelife#nofilter

If you give eyelash tinting a go, i would love to hear from you!! So please good or bad experiences, let me know in the comments. ( I am in need of a good laugh at the moment)

Skin Deep…The Body Deli Skin Care Review

Being a qualified beauty therapist, I know more than most, just how important it is to look after your skin and the impact on skin ageing if you don’t.

With that in mind, I am always on the lookout for new skincare ranges. Having trained in both Babor and Dermalogica, I wanted a skin care range that was clinically tested, organic and ethical while retaining that high end luxury look, constancy, and smell.

The Body Deli ticked all these boxes. I first came across them on a web site abeautifulworld.co.uk where I ordered the melon foaming cleanser, I was so impressed with the service and the packaging that I decided to explore The Body Deli range further going on to purchase a complete synergy of products.

My Skin care products

Before I write about the products, here’s a background on my skin. It is product ingredient sensitive, can be very dry (I am prone to eczema) with oily t-zone. A combination skin that requires a lot of moisture in some places and prone to get oily in others – Nightmare.

Cleanser and Face scrub

Every morning I use the Blueberry Fusion Resurfacing Cleanser, which is a thirty day resurfacing treatment to smooth, clear and refine your complexion using antioxidant rich, raw organic Blueberries and Acai fruit.  The product itself smells lush, it is easy to apply and rinses off really well.  I always do a double cleanse to make sure I remove all traces of makeup. My skin never feels uncomfortably tight after. Cleanser is £28.50

Smells like a smoothie

Twice a week I use the Blueberry Fusion Micro- Scrub which is just like a smoothie in a pot. Honestly it smell’s good enough to eat!! This scrub feeds the skin while it exfoliates. My skin always feels really smooth afterwards and can sometimes tingle. Frist time I used it I thought I was experiencing a reaction, but it is just down to the natural fruit acids. Price is £28.50

Serum

After I cleanse I like to use the Anti-Oxidant Vital C Serum to helps reverse sun damage and increases elasticity and keep my skin looking youthful. The consistency of the serum is nice and light and smells fresh and i have noticed a huge improvement in my skin-tone.  Price is £38

Body deli skin care review
Face cream

To moisturise I use a nourishing anti-ageing cream Crème de la Rose ,which not only has a beautiful name, but the smell is really heavenly. The cream is so thick and silky that is oozes luxury. This cream is handmade in small batches and takes 24 hours to make! So no wonder the price is £65 per pot. I find the cream is moisturising enough to keep my dry prone areas hydrated, without overloading my skin in areas prone to oiliness. I really look forward to using this product every day and for me it is worth every penny.

Body deli skin care review
Cream de la rose

I really love the product packaging, it’s fresh and modern, and I think it would hold its own on a shelf with more well know products in the skin care industry.

If you’re thinking of trying The Body Deil, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these products and would love to know what you think of them too!!

The next products I want to try in this range are the body scrubs, I will be sure to you know that I think.

This is an Unaffiliated review and all opinions are my own. Any questions leave them in the comments and I will do my best to answer them.
