Derma rolling…

So this device and technique has been around a while now and I’ve finally bit the bullet and jumped on the bandwagon!

I was gifted this tool from Swiss clinic and opted for the 0.2mm needle to ease myself in as I’ve heard the bigger the needle the more painful it can be and I’m a bit of a wimp!

I use mine twice a day as instructed in the box and I go over the areas 4 times in multiple directions and I have to say, I’ve seen a difference! I suffer from adult acne and since using this my breakouts have reduced and my scarring is fading which is awesome and does wonders for my confidence!

The idea of this is to create small pin pricks in the skin to allow the blood to flow and encourage collagen to be produced, hello anti ageing, and also to help you absorb skincare deeper and for it to be more effective and I’m all for that! And I feel I’m seeing the benefits! Yes I was sent this via brandbassador but these opinions are all my own and I’m so happy I’ve tried this and will keep using it and keep seeing the results.

I have a 20% off discount code for anyone who wants to try this: SWISSCLINIC94X

Revolution PRO

Woah…makeup revolution have stepped up thier game! They have bought out this whole new range of ‘pro’ makeup and I had to get my hands on some bits!

Sadly I wasn’t a fan of the fast base sticks so when I saw they had foundation drops and camouflage foundation coming out i knew I needed it! I ordered f8 in the foundation and f6 in the drops to help lighten and taper the colour to suit me.

I was shocked with this, it blends well and leaves you with a slightly dewy base if you use the drops or matte if you use the camouflage foundation and this baby lasted alllllll day! I have oily skin and this was a dream! It didn’t oxidise either and didn’t melt off my face. I am such a convert to this foundation and don’t think I will be spending money on expensive foundations now I’ve found this dreamy little combo.

I also got the 4K rose gold highlighter quad and it’s so pretty! The glow is natural but beautiful and looks like the Huda beauty highlighters. I am so pleased they’ve bought this range out and really showed that you can get some amazing makeup on the high street!

Blood type diet

Firstly, without sounding silly, it is a lifestyle change more than a diet. I first came across this when I saw another blogger mention it and it sounded like something I wanted to read more about, and you can too here….. http://www.dadamo.com/

I entered my blood type and what I read made total sense, the traits it listed were so true and relatable so I carried on reading and it suggests what you should eat, what to avoid, what your body works well with and what it doesn’t work well with. I have also made a YouTube video about it which you can view here….https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iu7mZEEq7Uw&feature=youtu.be

I tried this change for 2 weeks and I felt better, less bloated, less sluggish and I even lost a few pounds! As we all know weight loss and fitness isn’t one size fits all and doesn’t always work the same for everybody hence why I was interested in this as it is aimed at your blood type and more seemed more specific.

I then went back to my ‘normal’ eating ways, and back was the sluggish feeling, daily bloating and horrible skin I knew from before, I was shocked and impressed by this and highly recommend people clicking the link at the top and reading it. I felt more motivated too and more energy in the gym aswell which is always a bonus!

Has anyone else tried this or read about this diet before?

Conceal and define

Now I know we are barely into January but already a very exciting piece of makeup has been launched. It is from my favs make up revolution and it’s the conceal and define full coverage concealer and contour.

They have bought out a large range for all skin colours, and they have shades perfect for concealing and contouring. They have been hotly anticipated and once available I was eager to check them out for myself in my local Superdrug.

After seeing the swatches online I thought I would be a c5 or c6 and wanted to look for a contouring shade. After swatching these for myself I went for c5 for concealing and a c14 for my contour shade.

I used these the next day as I was so excited and I have to say….I was super impressed! Nice and thick…hence the great coverage and they blended out really well. I don’t usually suffer with creasing under my eye so that wasn’t an issue for me, and as they were so pigmented I didn’t need a lot for concealer or contour so these amazingly priced (£4 each) products will last me agesssss! I used the darker shade to contour my cheeks and used small dots as it so pigmented and I was shook! It blended out so well and I was left with an awesome natural contour!

I love makeup revolution and am on thier mailing list but I bought these items myself as I was so excited to use them! Check them out in Superdrug or online at tam beauty!

Glow on….

Everyone loves a glow, whatever the season or weather we always like a glow and I have found a collection of drugstore products that will make you glow like mad but in no way break the bank!!

Firstly the base, now I have found a pretty good dupe for Mac store cream….and it’s only £4! It’s the Mua prism strobe cream in flash. I mix this in with my foundation to help give me a dewy base. And try and avoid using to much powder when going for a glowy look!

After you have concealed and cream contoured it’s onto the magic! Now liquid highlighters are everywhere and whilst I love iconic and cover fx my loves makeup revolution bought out there own version and the colour liquid champagne is such a dupe for the ‘original’ shade by iconic. I put drops on my Cupid’s bow, nose, highest points of my cheeks and slightly above the eyebrows and blend in with my sponge.

And to finish it and make it pop I add the strobe highlight from makeup revolution, a gentle dusting with a flat tan brush and the look is done and the highlight is poppin’!!!

All products are available from either tan beauty or from Superdrug! Check these out for a bargain glow!

2018…..lets go!

Yes it’s another 2018 post….now we have addressed that let’s get down to it! I’m not normally a new year new me kinda gal…so I’m setting goals and aims instead!

January is a month of ‘new things’ for me! I’m getting new hair, starting a new gym and oh yeah….A NEW JOB!!!! I’ve had my hair cut shorter so it healthier for when I go lighter/blonder. I’m finally getting back into the gym after a few health issues (I will vlog about this so keep checking the channel) and finally, I leave my job and branch into the world of travel!

First goal….A new job can be nervous enough, let alone stepping into an industry I know very little about. I have been to 3 countries in my whole life but decided to go for it and try something different. I went for a job I had no experience in but thought it sounded like an amazing career! I had 3 interview stages and literally screamed on the train when I had the phone call to congratulate me! And then the nerves set in! Was I good enough, why chose me? And finally can I do this?! And YES, yes I can and my goal is to excel at this and embrace the change.

Second goal….Gym. Getting back and getting healthy again. I’m not over weight and I know that, if anything it’s more for my mental health and the social side of things, so this week I’m going back and hoping to smash it and keep going and to try the classes and help to improve my health and maybe even take up yoga again!

Third goal….Social media. Yes I said it and call me shallow but hear me out…. I mean my blog and YouTube side of things. I want to keep blogging and expand my YouTube and keep making content and videos and growing! Search for me on YouTube: rio corbett and come and join my family and journey!

4th goal….Qualifications. This year I will complete a mental health awareness course. This qualification will be so beneficial not only for myself but so I can help others. Whether it be professionally or by helping family and friends. I know it will help me to help people and that’s a pretty cool qualification and ability to have if you ask me!

5th and final goal….Holiday. I’m really hoping this year will be the year me and olli have a holiday! We haven’t been away together for 5 years due to work and other issues so I’m hoping this year will be our year and we get away.

Let me know any goals/aims you guys have…and how you are going to smash them! Let’s do this….

November favourites…

Hi and welcome to my November favourites! Keep reading to see what items I’ve been loving/trying out this November!

My first product I’ve been loving this sleepy lotion/cream from lush, I have made a more in depth post about this if you want to take a look. It’s really helped me sleep deeper and wake up more refreshed!

My second item was bought on a whim to make up my order to get free delivery! It’s the LA girl concealer. I’ve had their colour corrected before so had always wanted to to the ‘normal’ concealer and I’m glad I did, it’s great coverage and for the price (under £5) it’s a bargain!

Now my next item is my favourite….something I had wanted for ages and was so happy when it popped up when it was Black Friday and I got a bargain! I got my hands on a morphe palette and these colours are me in a palette…especially for the bargain price of £11.50….thankyouuu beauty bay!

Another makeup palette I’ve got my hands on is the makeup revolution brighter than your future highlight palette! I have done a blog post and a YouTube video on (https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCQHbLYeqZwyOscFpw8VF21g?layout=mobile&client=mv-google) explaining how much I love it and what to do with the shades you may not use so you get the most out of your £15

The last item on my list is skincare. I was contacted by this brand called ‘luvenesco’ and asked if I wanted to try out their product and I was more than happy too! It’s a retinol hydrating cream so it adds moisture and it’s anti-ageing too….perfect for winter!
