My Current Favourite Drug Store Lipsticks

Tuesday, July 29, 2014
So, over the last two years, i've become some what of a lipstick/lipgloss hoarder, I honestly just can't help myself. I thought i'd do a little post on some of my favourites at the moment. This is a post that i've seen a lot of people do recently(i'm guessing it's down to Zoella's post?) and being the lipstick loving lady that I am, I thought i'd throw my 10 pence in.
Just a little apology for the photography, it will get better.

Quote of the Week #40

Monday, July 28, 2014
"Storms don't last forever."

This is something i've always tried to tell myself. Sometimes you just have crap days, in fact sometimes you just have crap weeks and maybe the reason for that is beyond your control, but you need to put this little quote to the front of you mind. As always, if you're having a bit of a rubbish time at the moment, save this to your phone and set it as your wallpaper so you'll have a constant reminder that it will be okay.

Quote of the Week #39

Monday, July 21, 2014
"Always find time for the things that make you feel happy to be alive."

Whether that's a person, a family member or friend, a place like the seaside or that little field through the forest, make sure you make time to spend with them or there. I hope everyone's Monday has gotten off to a great start!

After 8 | 3in1 Face Wash/Scrub/Mask

Saturday, July 19, 2014
After 8, 3in1 Face Wash, Scrub & Mask - £7.99 | Gibraltar Soap Shop

I'm definitely one of those people who's always trying different face washes and scrubs, always striving to find the best one for my skin type. Fyi, I have combination skin, my T-zone is so oily you could fry an egg on it and my cheeks are so dry they just feel gross and flakey 99.99% of the time. I'm pretty sure I mentioned this in a previous post, but just in case you missed it, I work at this really great place called the Gibraltar Soap Shop and one of our products is this bad boy.

After 8 is a 3in1 face wash, scrub and mask, best suited for normal and combination skin. Made using real chocolate and mint leaves, meaning it smells just like those naughty after 8 chocolates that everyone's mum buys at Christmas! Basically it smells delicious, i'm sat here writing this with the pot in hand, having a good whiff every now and then, just to tease my taste buds! Please don't taste it, it's not very nice and please don't ask why I tried it, I just did.

But is it any good? Well, yes it is! In fact, it's become such an important part of my skin routine. I use After 8 twice a week as a face wash and scrub, I simply rub onto a wet face and then rinse off with warm water and viola! Not only can you smell the deliciousness that is this little pot of joy, but your skin feels smooth, cleansed and refreshed! I personally prefer this product used as a wash and scrub but it's equally effective as a face mask, i'm just impatient! 
I really feel like this product gets into my pores and removes all the excess oil and dirt that's hiding in them, sorry that sounds a bit gross but it's true! At the same time it seems to give moisture to my dry patches, honestly it's like magic. I've also found that it lasts a really long time, there's still just under half left and like I said before, i've been using it two to three times a week. You really only need such a small amount, especially for a wash and scrub. 

The only fault in this product is that you can't eat it, haha! Such a great product and did I mention that it's all natural ingredients, The Gibraltar Soap Shop don't test any of their product on animals and this product is suitable for vegans, woohoo! If you're in Gibraltar, you can grab yourself a pot now for £7.99  from The Gibraltar Soap Shop, 61 Main Street, Gibraltar. If you're not on our little rock but you are interested in purchasing one of these bad boys, drop me an email (maisieejo@hotmail.com) and i'll see what I can do for you!

Have you tried out this little pot of dreams? Or are you thinking of purchasing it now? Let me know!

The "Interrogation" Beauty Tag

Tuesday, July 15, 2014
I recently stumbled upon Georgie's blog, BeansBeautyBlog and sort of fell in love! I was having a bit of a browse when I saw this interesting looking tag! She tagged everyone so of course, I had to give it a go!

"A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot and realise how blessed you are."
Honestly, I can't even begin to tell you how much I feel this quote is relevant to my life right now as a whole really. Let's digest shall we?

July Beauty Wishlist

Thursday, July 03, 2014
How is it already the third of July?! That means we're past the half way point this year now, that's a scary thought! 2014 is seriously disappearing right from under my feet. Anyway, seeing as I haven't had time to prepare a June favourites post so I decided that a July beauty wishlist is just as good, right?
