Clearasil Ultra Blemish + Mask Review

Hey huns,

So sorry that this post is a week late. Ive had been having exams, so i was preparing for them and therefore decided to skip a week of posting to prepare and revise.

Anyways, this week i am reviewing Clearasil Ultra Blemish + Mask Review. I bought this as it was a new product in my local superdrug and as i have used other Clearasil prodcuts, i was excited to try it out.

I sometimes get a few spots and i bought this product because it was for spots and contained good ingredients like lactic acid, which is great for spots. I also bought this cause its a two in one and i thought it would be super convenient.

I was really disappointed by this product. I dont think its done anything special for my skin. Ive used it as a mask and as a face wash several times throughout a few weeks and i have seen no difference. My face doesnt feel refreshed after using it. I personally dont like using it as a mask as its quite messy because it doesnt seem to dry out like other mask and its too watery so it ends up everywhere. Some other reviewers have even said that this product actually gives them more spots than reducing. Thankfully, this is not the case for me, but i have been using two different face wash, as per my usual face wash regime.

Truthfully, the only good thing about this product is that it smelled nice. Other than that, this did absolutely nothing for my face.

Would I repurchase? this is going to be a no for me, but i do like other Clearasil products.

Hope you have found this review useful!

BodyShop All-In-One Blushes Review

Hey all,

I hope you guys had a great relaxing warm weekend, i certainly didnt as the weather in London has been freezing these past few days! Anyways, Im back again and this week i shall be reviewing my new fav of the week blushes, both of them are from Bodyshop.

I walked into Bodyshop a few weeks ago, saw this range of blushes and just couldnt walk out of the store without purchasing any.

I ended up buying 2 blushes, Macaroon and Flush respectively. Both blushes can be bought in store or online on Bodyshop’s website for £8.00.

Flush is a more mid-tone peachy pink shade which i think will suit both fair and dark skins. It also contains more shimmer compared to Macaroon, which is a more matte coral shade.

Both blushes are very pigmented, perhaps due to its Marula Oil content, giving the blushes great color pay-off.

The staying power is also pretty good, it stays on my cheeks throughout the day without any touch-up.  It is also unscented, but thats not really a big deal-breaker for me.

The blush is in a dome-like shape case which is light, making it easy to pop into your purse or makeup bag whenever traveling. Even though the pots are not that big, compared to other drugstore brands, it does last a relatively long time.

Heres a swatch of each blush..

As you can see, the Flush comes up more stronger and bolder than the Macaroon. Flush would be good for a night out or a dinner party, however i personally think it might be too bold for a day wear on a pale skin. Currently, ive been using Macaroon more often than Flush as i feel that the coral matte shade is perfect for spring and give a subtle rosiness to the cheeks. When summer comes and i become tanner (hopefully), i will probably be using more of the Flush shade.

Both blushes are soft and smooth in texture as you can expect from Bodyshop, and the pigment is not as daunting as seen in the pan, both can be build up with more layers.

Will i buy it again?

I will probably try out their other shades, but i do love Bodyshop’s blushes and will recommend this to anyone who wants a good product at a reasonable price.

Hope you have found this review useful!

Have you used Bodyshop’s blusher?? if yes, what are your favourite shades?
