Moroccana Argan Brand Focus

Moroccana argan oil productsA new company Morocccana recently got in touch regarding a brand focus post. I absoblelty love discovering new brands (think I have mentioned this 188378 times now). The company only supply hand made, natural products sourced themselves in Morocco, guaranteeing fresh, genuine products. (Obviously) the entire company is centred around Argan oil which is one of my very favourite beauty product ingredients so I was extremly excited to try what they have to offer.

In this little starter set the brand sent me is 5 f it’s newest products. A bottle of pure argain oil. This can be used for so many different purposes. I personally love it for rubbing into the nail cuticles to help strengthen and repair. I also rub a little into my split ends every other day to help them look less frizzy. They also offer this in a roller ball version which is perfect for travel. Although these two aren’t yet available on site they’re well worth looking out for. In the meantime they do have out their grapefuit lip care set.  Complete with a balm and scrub, the set is made with 100% natrual products and, of course, argan oil. It’s available in a few different scents but I personally love the graptfruit version. They’re both handy hangbag sizes so ive been carrying them around and using on the go which my lips are definitely thanking me for. Lastly, I received a spray bottle of the organic argan oil. This is sooo handy as the liquid versions can be a little messy. I’ve been spraying this on the ends of my hair and the dry patches on my elbows and knees and it’s working a treat to keep them healthy and hydrated. The product can also be used on the face and neck like a moisturiser so it really is a great all rounder.

What to expect from a day at the spa

Spa

Spa days are the ultimate luxury. For a celebrity experience, a day spa on Maui has to be top of most people’s bucket list, but if a relaxing Maui day spa is not in your budget, start planning a spa day somewhere local. If you look around, there are bound to be spas close by where you can enjoy being pampered to within an inch of your life. So what can you expect from your spa day?

Most people try a spa day when a loved one books it as a gift. As a result, they won’t know what to expect from the day, and might be a little nervous as a result. You really don’t need to worry, however, as spa days are supposed to be relaxing and fun. The staff are there to make sure you have the best possible experience, so nothing will be too much trouble. If you are still a little unsure, give the spa a call and find out what kind of treatments they offer and what the normal schedule is. This should reassure you a bit.

What Spa Features to Expect

There will be some variations between different spas, but in general, you can expect to find hot tubs, massage rooms, hot and cold showers, and a range of different spa treatments. You will have a choice about the treatments you want to try, so don’t feel pressurized into having a treatment you don’t want. They are all optional!

What Happens When You Arrive?

When you arrive at your spa, you will be welcomed at the check-in desk. Spa guests are allocated a locker, where they can store their personal belongings, and invited to change into a comfortable robe and slippers.

You are free to try the various facilities at your leisure, but some treatments may be on a timetable. If this is the case, the staff will remind you when your treatment is due. In the meantime, take a relaxing dip in the hot tub or sit and unwind in the sauna for 20 minutes. If you go for a swim or use the hot tubs, don’t forget to step under the shower and rinse off the chlorine before you have any treatments.

Spa Treatments

Different day spas offer different treatments, but massages are always popular, along with facials, manicures and pedicures.

If you elect to have a massage, don’t worry about getting naked. This will not happen. Therapists are trained to drape their clients to preserve modesty at all times, but if you are uncomfortable at any point, just let the therapist know. Conversation during a massage is entirely option, so don’t feel obliged to chatter about vacations and family.

Food and Drinks at a Day Spa

At the end of your day spa, you will normally be given the opportunity to have a glass of wine or champagne, along with lunch or dinner (depending on the package you have chosen). A day spa is a lovely treat, so make sure you take full advantage if your partner buys you a day spa pass as a gift.

Combatting Redness With Exuviance Calming Serum

IMG_1986Exuviance anti redness serumIMG_1984

Something I struggle with all the time is skin redness- so much so it often shows through my foundation. It’s such a pain and something i’m constantly trying to resolve- enter Exuviance calming cream!

According to excuviance the ‘milky serum concentrates multiple ingredients to visibly reduce redness and help prevent its recurrence. A soothing combination of active science and proven botanicals addresses the four underlying causes of redness, restoring calm to skin prone to sensitivity, such as rosacea-prone skin’.

This couldn’t have arrived at a better time. My skin is in dire need of tlc. I’ve been breaking out in red rashes all over my face, it’s itchy, sore and really frikin red! I was a bit apprehensive about applying something new incase it worsened the problem but, as the cream is fragrance-free and contains lot’s of ‘good for you’ ingredience, I took the risk. Just 10 minutes or so after application I could feel the skin getting calmer. An hour or so later and the itching had stopped, redness has reduced and I was able to apply make up as usual. This was a comoelete life saver as I had an event that evening.

I have since used the product on several other ‘extra red’ occasions and it’s worked a treat each time. I’ve also been adding it to my every other day skincare. As of now I am yet to see any permanent decreases in the redness of my skin but I have high hopes that I will get results and am happy with the anti inflammatory results for now.

The cream is suitable for all skin types and available on the Excuivance website.

Makeup Revolution Party Gift Bag

Makeup revolution party gift bag IMG_2025 IMG_2026 IMG_2027 IMG_2028 IMG_2029IMG_2022Makeup Revolution is one of my favourite beauty brands. They’ve always been heavily involved in the blogging community and it’s been great watching the company grow over the past couple of years. A few weeks ago it was their 2nd birthday and the brand held a celebration party in central London inviting various bloggers and vloggers. Although I was so happy to have been invited the invite was right in the midst of my university exam week so unfortunately I couldn’t make it. Makeup Revloution were kind enough though to send me over a gift bag from the event and I love the contents so much I had to share.

It’s filled with some of their newest and most exciting launches. The strobe cream deserved a little squeal as I opened it. I’ve been meaning to try a new highlight for ages and this one is supposedly great. The brush set was another exciting one for me. Complete with 9 face and eye brushes it has everything you need for a complete make up look for only £20! The lipstick is the most beautiful shade with the gorgeous rose gold packaging that make up rev is rocking atm! Matching is one of the brushes from it’s new ultra metals collection. The perfect bold metallics dupe for just £9.99

Lastly, and from the Freedom professional collection the Black artist pro atrist pad! The palette basically comes with every shade you could ever need for everyday where. I’m not much of an eye shadow wearer myself but this is definitely inspiring me to try some looks out. The shades are great quality and for £15 it’s another bargain.
