I'll be continuously updating it with some Christmas designs this week so keep an eye out for them and if you have any product requests let me know.

The Body Shop Strawberry Smoothing Face Mist

The Body Shop Strawberry Smoothing Face Mist

A couple of months ago I used my £5 birthday voucher at The Body Shop to get their Strawberry Smoothing Face Mist as I've been into face mists lately and who doesn't want smoother skin, am I right?

This strawberry scented face mist is supposed to give a smoother looking complexion by hydrating and refining the texture of skin. It contains blueberry, sugarcane, orange, strawberry, lemon, guava, organic aloe vera, and sugar maple extracts which help exfoliate and soothe skin. 

It is suitable for all skin types and "makeup friendly" but I only use it at night: I spray it a couple of times on my hand, rub my hands together then apply to my face, instead of spraying directly onto face as you have to close eyes and mouth plus "wipe excess product off eyes and mouth" once applied. 

About the product: firstly, I love the smell, it's fruity without it being artificial (even tough the formula does contain fragrance). It's easy to use and lightly hydrates my skin. In the morning when I wash my face, my skin feels smoother and looks a bit more even, which is great. 

At first I thought it was a bit overpriced, however it seems like it will last quite a while, so if you are interested in face mists do give this one a try. 

The Body Shop Strawberry Smoothing Face Mist is £6. 

Are you a fan of facial mists?



Laser Tattoo Removal at Pulse Light Clinic

This is a sponsored post.

There are several reasons why somebody might want to get a tattoo removed: it no longer fits their lifestyle, way of thinking or aesthetic; it didn't turn out looking they way it was expected; or maybe they would like to get it covered up with a different design. 

Whatever the reason may be, there are a few ways to remove unwanted tattoos, including dermabrasion, TCA, exicion and laser. The last method works by firing laser light into the tattoo, which breaks down the ink into smaller pieces, which are then eliminated by the body; this method avoids damaging the skin while removing the tattoo. 

Traditional lasers have been used for years for tattoo removal, however the new PicoSure and PicoWay lasers offer additional benefits such as needing fewer treatments, being effective on all colours, and being less painful. 

The newer PicoSure/PicoWay lasers at Pulse Light Clinic and City Tattoo Removal use photo-mechanical principles, combined with ultra short pulses to shatter the ink, helping the body eliminate the ink by itself. These lasers require less heat  and energy, meaning the surrounding tissue is left unharmed and space between treatments shortens as well. This powerful process means that a whole tattoo can be erased in as little as 3 to 8 treatments. 

You can easily book a free consultation for any of the 3 locations at City Tattoo Removal (Oxford Street 5 Percy Street, London, W1T 1DG, T: 0207 205 4085), Bank (1st Floor, Peek House, 20 Eastcheap, London, EC3M 1EB, T: 0207 523 5158) or Tottenham Court Road (5 Percy Street, London, W1T 1DG, T: 0207 205 4085). And with prices from as little as £40 per month, it is very accessible to finally say goodbye to that unwanted tattoo.
