Amaki Skincare | Bentonite clay facial mud mask

Hi Cherubs!

I hope your week has been lovely! Today I have a mud mask review by Amaki Skincare, I am mask obsessed and I already own far too many for one person, so obviously I picked up another one! This mud mask is a lot different to my others as its clay and you have to mix up the mask yourself, if you want to find out how I got on then keep on reading!

Firstly what is Bentonite Clay mask and why is it good for our skin? 'Sodium Bentonite Clay Powder has a negative ionic charge. Toxins and impurities have positive charges, and opposites attract! It literally pulls the dirt and grime from your skin, leaving it feeling cleansed, refreshed, and rejuvenated'

This product also claims to clear blackhead and pimples while reducing the size of pores. This is perfect for my skin as I have quite large pores around my nose and I am experiencing a few breakouts at the minute too!

As I said earlier I don't have any masks where I have to mix the product with water to create the mask paste, I actually didn't realise when ordering this that it came in powder form and I'm not gonna lie I was a little disappointed just because I hate mess and I like my skincare routine to be pretty quick. I know some people would prefer this but I'm just not that gal! So you mix 1 part clay with 4 parts water and mix until you have a paste consistency, it took my a while to get the required formula right but once I achieved a somewhat smooth paste I applied it all over my face with my hands. I didn't use the brush or the sponge that the product comes with just because It was easier to do with my hands.

Once I applied the mask it started to harden quite quickly and it felt great on my skin! I left the mask on for 15 minute and washed it off with warm water. I am a big fan of clay based products for my skin as it leaves my skin feeling and looking super clean and this mask lived up to that. My skin looked refreshed and spotlessly clean. 

Overall I'm happy with how the mask makes my skin look and feel, I would probably only use it a couple of times a month just to give my skin a deep clean! Have you tried this mask before?

I hope you have a productive start to your week! Over the weekend I took pictures of one of my fave casual navy outfits which I know will be a firm favourite when the warm weather starts to pick up!

You may have seen this dress on my blog before but this time styled completely different. See that post here. Sometimes I think this dress looks a little shapeless so to add a bit of interest I decided to knot one side of the dress and it instantly added a stylish edge, I love it! I also added a simple check shirt to cinch in the waist and too add another element of layering.

Joico | K-PAK colour therapy

Hi Cherubs!

Happy Friday! Today I wanted to share with you a new product I've been using from a brand that I've just discovered Joico. This product was a thoughtful gift from my friend who knows i'm totally obsessed with hair products! I've been using this Joico K-PAK colour therapy for over a month now, so if you are smitten with hair care products like me then keep reading!

For your reference my hair is quite thick and dry and has a lovely frizz to it 😉 

What does this product claim to do? 'Our instant shine and repair miracle for color treated hair that unlocks the secret to out-of-this-world vibrancy, while providing deep repair, illuminating shine, and the kind of super slip that gives your brush serious glide power. With a single use, prepare yourself for lustworthylocks'

My friend has also been using this and she only had amazing things to say about this product so to say my hopes were high is definitely an understatement. The product itself has quite a creamy oily consistency if you know what I mean, but that makes sense as this treatment has Manketti oil as one of its ingredients. It absorbed quite quickly onto my damp hair and instantly made my hair feel silky and not weighed down. After I rinsed the product off my hair still felt lovely and soft!

This treatment definitely made my coloured hair a lot more vibrant which is great because I tend to find that red hair colour loses its vibrancy quite quickly so a product that can preserve that is a winner for me! My hair looked a lot straighter but it still had some frizz but overall much better! I still had to use my straighteners to iron those out. What I did find though is that my hair felt incredibly soft, like salon soft for days and super shiny! I'm using this once a week and I would repurchase this treatment! Big thumbs up from me.
