Recently I have been obssessed with skincare. Moisturisers, serums, cleansers, face masks - you name it. In fact, I've just placed a mega skincare haul (which I may share with you lovelies soon once they all arrive!) but anyway, back to the product at hand. Despite having many skincare products, one product which I sorely lack in my skincare collection is a moisturiser with SPF in it, and that it is where Sun Blockex fills in that huge gap in my skincare collection!

Sometimes I feel like my mind is set towards thinking all things negative. Thoughts like 'I can't do this', 'I don't have time', 'I'm not good enough', 'I'm lazy' play through my mind and I feel downright demotivated. Sounds familiar? Quotes however, are things that I love looking at to remind myself that 'No, you ARE good enough', 'You CAN do it' etc- I just have to strive to work hard. So I thought I'd share some of my favourite motivational/inspirational quotes to not only remind myself to stay positive, but also to hopefully uplift anyone who is feels like I feel at times.

Time has passed since my last product empties post and since then, I have managed to use up more products and collect more empty packaging. For some reason, looking at the products I have used up gives me a sense of satisfaction, like "Yeah, I actually got through to the end without changing a product!". It may sound like an easy feat for some to stick to using the same product; but as a huge beauty lover with an inclination towards constantly buying new products, trying them out and moving on to a new product halfway, finishing a product is a rare achievement.

My skin is something which I am rather conscious of. I used to suffer from acne when I was in my early teens, and then it died down and I had lovely skin. And although I had acne which left scars, those scars never lasted for long, and faded away quite quickly. Two years ago, I had a very bad acne outbreak out of the blue- I don't know if it was the stress of my final year of my degree, or the fact that I moved to the UK and was not used to the weather, water etc. Sadly, this time my acne left me with scarring- some of which I still have until today.
These acne scars caused darkened marks which stay on my skin for months (and some even years now =S )
The darkening of these marks on the skin are known as hyperpigmentation, and is something which occurs more often in Arabic, Asian or darker skin types. Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of an area of skin caused by the overproduction of melanin or pigment which is caused by things like acne and overexposure to the sun (and UV rays).
Imagine my delight when I was contacted by Pharmaclinix to try out a treatment which could lighten those dark marks!

Nuxe is a brand famous in the blogosphere for its skincare products and lovely Reve de Miel lip balm. When I was recently contacted by them about their first UK blogger competition, I was so excited to join! However, university work had me swamped as usual, but now I've finally got a bit of time to quickly share my entry for the competition. Here's my Must-Have picks for Spring!
