T- ZONE Charcoal Nose Strips | Review

I'm currently off from school today suffering with a cold so I decided to do at least one productive thing today, so today's post is going to be on the T-zone Charcoal Nose Pore Strips I got a while ago. Strictly speaking this was part of a present I bought for my friend ages ago as well as other stuff but I used this one night and it is amazing I'm going to definitely buy her more of these to add to her pile because these are amazing. I have used so many nose strips to try help my black heads on my nose and none of the others I have used actually removes the blackheads unlike this one. Never have I ever seen a product that 1) makes my nose feel so soft 2) The packaging is also soft and 3) Remove the blackheads. I highly recommend this product as it truly I'd really good and I will continue to buy it. I have only ever seen this in Home Bargains and it was only 59p which is really inexpensive for nose strips. 
Directions For Use 
First you have to wash your face with just water or any other products you might have. Then you gently pat your face face dry while adding a bit of water to your nose area. Peel of  the Nose Pore Strip then you add the smooth side to your relatively damp nose. Be careful not to keep moving the Nose strip around because the blackheads charcoal will smudge and looks weird and its harder to remove if so. Gently press down in it to make sure it's in and then you leave it for roughly 10-15 minutes until the strip begins to feel stiff which indicates it'd ready to be removed. 
How to remove 
All you have to do to remove the Nose strip is start from any corner and slowly but carefully pull it up and towards the opposite side. I always find it better to rip it off like a plaster as it feels the same if you do it slow which makes it hurt more. 
Aqua(Water),Polyvinyl Alcohol. Glycerin, Charcoal Powder, hamamelis Virginiana ( Which Hazel) Leaf Extract, PEG-20 Almond Glycerides, Dipotassium Gylcyrrhizate, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Limonene

Charcoal Nose Pore Strips – " Are enriched with spot fighting Tea Tree to help prevent spots and Charcoal to unclog pores and draw out excess oil.Deeply cleansing and unclogging pores, charcoal acts as a magnet to draw out impurities."

Today's post is going to be about FarFetch and their New Beauty Section. I was recently introduced about this brand and I knew I had to share to you guys. If you want to go check out their website you can click (HERE) They have amazing products and they're not just beauty. Here is a list of a few items that I personally would love to try out and Adore;

LIPSTICK QUEEN Pinky Nude Sinner - As I have mentioned in previous blog posts I don't really wear much colour to my face let alone my lips. I personally feel I suit more nude toned lipstick compared to colours such as Red or any other dark colours so I instantly fell in love with this lipstick. It's a pink toned nude lipstick that looks absolutely beautiful I will save up my pocket money I will be sure to invest in this product.
ARTIS Oval 6 Brush - I have seen this type of brush EVERYTHING and at first I thought it was a spoon until I googled it and ever since that I have been so intrigued to try this out. It looks so soft in the videos so I wanted to try this out one day and share a review with you guys but honestly it looks so cool.
BY TERRY Vanilla Beige Concealer - Since suffering with a bad case of teenage acne I have only ever used two concealers and they're the best ones so far so I want to try branch out and try find new concealers which will make my skin look fresh and soft. 

PERCY AND REED Bouncy Volumising Shampoo - Recently my hair has been so dry it makes my hair look greasy and flat and I generally have no idea what is happening to it andI was going to ask my hair dresser but I forgot to do it but it's either my new shampoo my mum bought about a week ago. This said it is a bouncy volumising shampoo which means it will make your hair feeling less flat and more fresh if you're having the same problem as I am then I guess this is the product for you.

CHANTECAILLE St Barth's Bronzer -  I am so pale vampire a would be jealous of me and it can be really annoying at times because I am the ultimate pale friend that nearly every group has. I have never actually tried contouring or anything like that but I actually really like this shade and I think it might be fun to try out so I recommend this for a first time try.

My Everyday Make Up Routine

Nivea Mens Post Shave Balm Primer - I know it says Mens but I have seen so many reviews about this product so I decided to try it out and I literally LOVE it and highly recommend.
Collection Concealer - Probably one of the best concealer out there and I can guarantee anyone will agree with that statement. I apply this right after I put the primer on so it sticks more. 
Benefit BOI-ING Concealer - Also another really good concealer. I tend to apply it after I use the Collection Concealer as my skin is already covered but this just makes sure I definitely covered it all.
Maybelline Lash Mascara - I love the applicator it comes with. I have currently ran out of it but I use the brush to stick into the benefit one as the brush is amazing. 
Benefit  Mascara - This makes my eyelashes look a bit longer and I feel it works better than the other mascaras I have used even though I'm not completely fond on this product. If anyone knows a good mascara people recommend it as I'm in need
"Prime It" primer - Just a standard good primer. I have mentioned it in my last monthly favourites If you want more in-depth Facts about it .
* sometimes * revolution palette soft brown in my crease 
Stila Brow felt tip pen - I just use this to outline the bleached hairs I have on my brows due to my acne cream. It doesn't make your eyebrows look fake as this Is extremely light, practically blonde but it's really good.
Maybelline colour tattoo - In the photo it looks purple and it is purple but it strangely matches my eyebrows when I apply it as it then isn't purple . Strange I know but it is a sort of copyright of the Anastasia dip brown.
Natural collection clear mascara - Just to keep the eyebrow hair into line and make sure they don't move but it doesn't make your eyebrows feel rough. 
Mac Velvet Teddy - Mentioned this so many times before so I think by now is self explanatory. I did to a review back in January in case you're interested. 
Nivea pearl lip gloss - As the mac lipstick is matte I just use this when I'm not wearing it or before I wear it to make sure it's not dry but I didn't include this in the photo as most people use this. 

LUSH | Review

Today's post is going to be on what I got in LUSH a week today ago.  I literally LOVE LUSH as their products are absolutely amazing but not only that, they're also incredibly photogenic. in the photo above and also underneath it provides a clear view of the Frozen Bath Bomb as well as two Sample products this lady gave us for free. 
Frozen Bath Bomb 
So the Frozen Bath Bomb is just a blue ball mixed with two different shades of blue, one lighter and one darker as well as there being a few white dots on the top. The Frozen Bath Bomb has a very distinct smell to it that all do respect I'm not fond on. The smell can be over powering if you sniff it too much which does tend to make me feel sick as the smell is rather sweet. when you apply it to the bath it starts of light blue like the waters of Bora Bora but after a while it starts to get a lot darker as the middle blue takes over but inside this white colour comes pouring out with lots of glitter. The end bath tends to look like medium blue mixed with white floaters but within the blue waters it is absolutely beautiful with the glitter. 
Fresh ingredients
"Sodium Bicarbonate , Citric Acid , Fragrance , Grapefruit Oil (Citrus paradisi) , Neroli Oil (Citrus Aurantium amara) , Rose Oil (Rosa damascena) , Snowflake Lustre (Potassium Aluminium Silicate, Titanium Dioxide) , Cream of Tartar (Potassium bitartrate) , Sodium Laureth Sulfate , Lauryl Betaine , Lilial , Hydroxycitronellal , Geraniol , *Limonene , *Linalool , Silver Glimmer Lustre (Corn Starch, Maltodextrin, Mica, Potassium Aluminium Silicate, Titanium Dioxide) , Blue 1 , Green 3 . *Occurs naturally in essential oils"
Free Charity Samples 
So the other two mini objects in the photo are the two charity samples the lady gave us andshe explained that LUSH normally do charity funding for all different causes but this one was a Local one. She explained in detail that this was to help save the sea animals that are finished for around our waters. They had many things you could have bought to help them such as the hand cream my mum got. It didn't have a name other than " The Charity Pot " but it's normal process was £13 but they only did it got £3.50 as well as other items. I haven't used these smaller products yet so I don't have Mich to say other than the small pot has the bath/ shower jelly called Whoosh and the soap smells really fishy which puts me off using it but I will give it a try but its made from seaweed. This is my small LUSH Review so I hope you enjoyed. Thanks for reading !!
