T-Zone Pore Strips

I recently brought some T-Zone face pore strips from Superdrug. The ones that I brought came in a pack of 6 and they are meant to 'Grab blackheads and spot causing bacteria and lifts them clean away.'


They are very easy to use as you just have to wet the part of your face in which you are putting the strips. You then take the whole strip off of the plastic, and place them on to the wet patch and press it on. Once you have done this you need to leave it on for about 10 minutes so that it can dry. You will be able to tell when they are ready to remove when they become stiff. You have to slowly remove the strips, starting at the edges. If I am being honest it did hurt a bit when I was removing it but it didn't hurt too much. I found that these didn't really work as it only took a couple blackheads off.

Studio Lip gloss

For Christmas I was given a set of 3 Studio lip glosses, and they came in a cute little box. There are three different colours and they are nude, purple and red.

The one that I use the most is the nude one as, when I do my make up I usually go for what some people may call 'safe colours'. I tend to go for the nudes and light pinks for my lips and light brown/nude colours for my eyes. I love using this one and use it most days.

The other two I don't use as much and that is because they are quite bright and pigmented. Although, I saw in a makeup hacks video on YouTube that said if you put powder on top of the lip gloss it will look like a matte lipstick; so I gave it a go and I loved it. I used my pressed powder that you may have seen in one of my other blog posts and I just put it on top of my lip gloss and it also made it last even longer. A good thing about theses lip glosses is that they last and don't come off when you have a drink; they last even longer with the powder on them. So if you have got any lip glosses that you think are too bright for you then try this as you may end up loving it.
