Declutter……Yeah or Nah?

Trying to be successful on YouTube is hard. Defining what successful  is, is also something that cannot be easily gauged. I mean is it have 1K subbies, loads of views or just people commenting and giving love to your channel?

I uploaded my latest video yesterday and compared to other videos, it has been quite successful. So? Well, I was surprised cause it was a video I didn’t expect people to really like. I was wrong.

And the video is…..

Decluttering makeup

That got me thinking.Why do people like watching declutter videos?

Is it the feeling of feeling OK that you too are a hoarder like everyone else?

Is it reassuring to see that there are other messy people out there aka clutter fans?

Is it interesting to see what people think about products and what they genuinely like, therefore keep?

The reason must be somewhere there.

I, too, like decluttering videos mostly because they are reviews as well.

How do people decide what to keep and what goes?

Well, I usually keep products I have been using a lot. I also keep products I have not been using a lot simply because I have forgotten about them, which is why I decide to keep them, so that I can give them another job.

I also keep products I have paid loads of dosh on. They will get their worth out of them.

I chuck anything that I have had for ages (I do check the use by dates makeup products have  on them). I also chuck products that are painful or not performing well.

That’s my thought process. What’s yours? Do let me know in the comment section below. Here is my video by the way.

Greek Skincare Review: Medi sei, Korres & Fresh Line

Hi everyone!

Today I am going to talk to you about a few products I rediscovered whilst in Greece. They are all skincare related. The brands are Korres, Fresh Line and Medi sei. I am actually holding an itsy bitsy giveaway on my YouTube channel of one of these products, so do check out the video linked at the end of this post if you are interested.

Korres

I have already written a blog post about the Korres Wild Rose exfoliator. It is so nice to use and the scent is amazing (if you love rose scents this is for you!!). You can check out my full review here. I also tried a couple of the Korres shampoos, but do not really recommend them. There is actually a shampoo that is supposed to help regrowth of hair, but I cannot really say if it actually does. Didn’t really notice anything guys! What I did notice is that if you just use the shampoo, your hair is not nice and soft. In fact, it gets a bit tangled.

 

Medi sei

Panthenol Extra line: All the products mentioned are from the panthenol extra line. All the products have panthenol which is a very hydrating ingredient linked to vitamin B5.

Triple defense eye cream

I am using this eye cream at the moment. It is very hydrating, gets absorbed quickly and does not sting. It is anti wrinkle and without harsh ingredients.

Spray body Lotion

This is the lazy girl body spray. You need to check this out if you do not really moisturise your body. A few spritzes and you are ready to go. The scent is very light and it feels very hydrating. Not sticky, kinda water-y.

Cream for sensitive skin

Again a hydrating lotion for sensitive skin. Parabens free. If you like creams and have sensitive skin, you should check this out. I have a full review of these products here.

Fresh line

Cocooning and calming body lotion and body wash.

This is what I am giving away on my YouTube channel. I ❤ this product. If you have trouble sleeping, you definitely need to check it out. It is amazing. You put some on your skin and the scent makes you relax and wanna sleep. I really recommend trying this out if you haven’t (why not take part in the giveaway on my YouTube channel).

More details about these products in the video 🙂

Blogmas day 4: The One About the hand Cream

 

Blogmas day 4:

The One About the Hand Cream

Let me tell you about a hand cream I bought and love

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

I have very dry hands. When I say dry, I mean painfully dry. My hands get red and the skin becomes all flaky. I buy loads of hand creams, but honestly, the only thing that really helps are creams that are from the pharmacy that have cortisone and some type of steroid in them.

20171204_094254

I have tried loads of creams. High end luxury brands and affordable drugstore ones. When my hands are in a better condition and do not require medicinal hand creams (I made that up or is it a term?), I like to buy hand creams that make my hands feel soft and smell nice.

Key word…. smell nice.

The other day in class one of my students offered me a hand cream and when I smelt it, I fell in love.

What is it?

 The Body Shop Moringa hand cream.

It is in a squeeze tube. 100 ml. I bought mine for about 7 pounds. I think the original price is 12, but the Body Shop is having sales now, so you can get it for less.

It is a floral sent. Moringa is a flower.

The cream  has according to the packaging,

Seed oil from hand picked Moringa.

It is very hydrating, water-y feeling. It gets absorbed quickly and does not sting.

The scent is powerful but in a good way. If you love floral scents, you should check this one out cause it is amazing!!!

Blogmas/ Vlogmas and a skincare haul

I love blogging. I love writing. I started a new job though, I moved to York, and I do not have enough time to blog.

I also started a YouTube channel which I am trying to grow (not very successful at that I must admit).

I love Christmas and the holidays in general.

I love buying pressies for the people I love. I love sparkly, glittery things, and I enjoy going out and celebrating.

Capture

 

I decided I wanted to do Blogmas and Vlogmas. I decided pretty late though. It was actually on Friday. I thought I’d do Vlogmas. Today,Sunday, I thought I’d try to write more and do some sort of Blogmas as well. It will be hard but I will try.

Skincare haul Drugstore.jpg

Let me start with my first proper Vlogmas video which is a skincare haul. I love skin care. I buy and try loads of products. At the moment, I am using a lot of hand creams and lip balms. I am also really into double cleansing. So there are some cleasning products in my video. I’d love it if you checked it out.

Let’s talk about makeup essentials

If you had to pack your makeup bag with only your essentials, what would they be?

What are your essentials? For me, the most important part is a good foundation. Something that will give you a flawless base. Then you have a beautiful canvas to work on. I think blush, an eye crayon, mascara, and a (bright) lippie are the most important things.

 

My foundation is L’o’real infallible (vanilla).

My blush is fleur by Mac

My mascara is Bourjois Volume Reveal.

My eye crayon faves are Clinique chubby sticks

and my lippies are mostly Clinique Pops or L’real.

As far as brushes are concerned, my go to brand is real techniques, although currently, I am also using Elf brushes.

I have loads of makeup bags. the one I have shared in my video (linked below) is from Primark. I think next sells pretty ones as well.
