DIY: TURMERIC FACE MASK

As you know skin care is always one of my favourite areas to do research on and I am obsessed with trying out new mixtures that I can do myself. I recently stumbled upon this mixture that works fabulously. Turmeric, before I had never heard of this almost miracle powder. It actually comes from the ginger family and is used for a wide variety of things such as in food and medicine.

Ingredients are as follows;

  • 1tbs TURMERIC POWDER
  • 1tbs ALL PURPOSE FLOUR
  • 1-2tbs MILK
  • 1-2tbs COCONUT OIL

SKIN HISTORY & CURRENT CARE + LUSH CUPCAKE REVIEW

Let’s Talk Skin Care!

If you have been following me or know me for a while you know that I have been struggling with skin issues for the longest of time. I have had so many ups and downs with my skin, not only with acne and hyper-pigmentation on my face but chest and back. It is so annoying and definitely lowered my self-esteem.

MY 2nd TIME (FULL BRAZILIAN WAX)

This might be TMI (Too Much Information) for some but hey we are all adults here right?… & by the way this is a lifestyle blog! 🙂

Now let’s start the conversation about my 1st and 2nd time having the full Brazilian wax done. I experienced my first time back in July and my second time just this week! I feel super proud of myself because I talked about having a full Brazilian wax done for so long. But like most I am so embarrassed/ashamed/terrified even when just thinking that I have to lay down on a bed and someone if literally right up into well onto and touching my penny (lol, that was the name I called ‘it’ my vajayjay/vagina since young) with a bright light and probably criticising how mines look.

Even now while writing this I feel like ‘Girl you survived’. And I am getting over it because the fact of the matter is that it is their job and they have probably done this 500 times before you and they are just doing their job.

Let’s talk about the pain, comparing the two times I believe that it did get better. The first time of course it was a bit painful however, it is not a pain that lasts all day, where your penny 🙂 just feels like it is burning or just an unnatural. When the wax is applied they allow it to dry and then gently pull. After the wax is completely pulled of they apply pressure to the spot and then instantly or almost instantly it is relieved. For me this was done for the whole thing & for my second time I dared to get the back door also done! (lol are you also laughing while reading this?) The back door was so much easier and faster, she used the general wax and then applied the one that is used for the smaller hair.

One funny part for me was the way in which you lay down for the front and the back. For the front you are on your back and your under feet are touching, so that she can get up in there. For the back you have to lay on your belly and hold your butt cheeks so that they don’t stick together! (lol, just imagine that)

I would say that a full waxing session takes about 30-45 minutes and it goes by so fast. It is not awkward while laying there, well at least not for me. I make sure not to look at what she is doing and just keep my head up, hands together and talk. Talking about yourself and sharing stories in general like any other salon experience. & the finally the final result is amazing! Everything is super soft for days and you are instantly beach ready.

The salon I visited is located in The Hague and so far I am super happy with their service. It is super clean and they are so professional.

Have you though about getting the full Brazilian done? What was you biggest fear? What did you think about it?

GRWM | RED LIPS GLAM @SJs_Obsessions

Hi Loves,

First video on my YouTube Channel for the year. In the video I share with you a look I wore over the weekend and I call it my ‘Red Lips Glam’. GRWM stands for Get Ready With Me, these videos are very popular on YouTube and I love creating them. This look was created using three shadows from the the Morphe 35O palette. This palette is very versatile and a lot of different looks can be created using it. This is a simple look that does not have too much shadows used and is easily to blend. Do you have it as yet?

On the day that I filmed I also took some beautiful pictures outside of my make-up look. Below I have added some pictures showing you how it looks in natural day light.

Enjoy the video…

MORPHE 35O PALETTE

Hi Beautiful,

A while back I received the 35O – 35 COLOR NATURE GLOW EYESHADOW PALETTE! This is a great must-have; natural to glam palette that every glamour girl should have! Morphe palettes are usually always sold out so if you get the chance to get your hands on anyone GRAB IT (you won’t be sorry). The finish of the shades run from matte to shimmer and then natural to orange burnt to browns. Gorgeous shades, appropriate for all skin tones. Adding to that the pigmentation of these eyeshadows are very vibrant and the blend-ability is also easy. So you can use these shades to create a fancy cut crease or even a simple statement daytime look. This one is my first Morphe palette and I am looking forward to my next purchase from them.

You can purchase this palette as well as other online at Morphe products from MorpheBrushes located in America and Boozyshop located in the Netherlands.

Dimensions of Palette:

Length:9″
Width: 6 1/2″
Thickness: 1/2″

Number of Pans: 35
Pan Size: 1″

Follow my Instagram @SJs_Obsessions for make-up looks that I will share of looks created using Morphe 35O Palette!

HOW I COVER MY ACNE SCARRING| 2015

Hi Loves,

I had to get this video filmed and shared before this year came to an end. My BIGGEST INSECURITY – MY ACNE SCARS. For the longest of time I have been dealing with having acne then it scarring and becoming dark marks/hyper-pigmentation. It happens because I squeeze or pick at them and even due to the fact that I do not treat them well at times. There is a lot of times when my skin has been picture perfect (hasn’t been so recently) and then times when it gets even worst then how it is now.

In my new video I share with you how I cover my acne scars with make-up. Of course I do not wear make-up every day for long periods every time, but I do when I go around people I do not know, to school and work. When I am finished with a long day the first thing I want to do is to take of the make-up once I am home! [Relief] Also I usually keep one or two days of the week to not wear make-up and just let my face breathe.

Enjoy the video…

Vanity Planet – Spin for Perfect Skin

Finally got myself a cleansing brush! I know I am not the only one suffering from ‘acne’ and hyper-pigmentation but sometimes I just feel like I am ALONE and Just want it to disappear….Having acne breakouts that then turn into dark marks on your body can be a confidence killer! But I am still on the run to find what works for me. My goal is to have more than 50% of my hyper-pigmentation gone before December. I want to be confident enough to walk around with a bare face that looks fine (to me) without make-up on. However, enough about my worries on my skin issues let’s get back to what I bought myself. & another day I will share a detailed blog post all about my skin worries/issues.

Since last year I have been eyeing the Clarisonic, however, I was not ready to pay about €200 for it. But when I came across a video where NikkieTutorials was showing what she used to clean her face & she had a 70% discount code I had to check it out!

The Spin for Perfect Skin which can be ordered on VanityPlanet and it is originally priced at $100 but with the 70% discount code from NikkieTutorials it came out to $30.00 and $9.00 for shipping. Total = $39.99 or €36,87 isn’t that amazing?! Adding to that the shipping to the Netherlands was fast as well, within 5 days it was here.

LUSH|Mask of Magnaminty Review

<a href=”http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/14018043/?claim=yhhunfpc7de”>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

I got myself one of the LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics masks. All of LUSH’s items are HANDMADE, 100% VEGAN and they do not TEST ON ANIMALS (How great is that?). This brand has so many amazing items to choose from and they all smell so pleasant! You should definitely check out their store. For the past few weeks I have been OBSESSING about my skin because honestly speaking I deal with hyper-pigmentation and breakouts now and then. So I have been researching and looking for new things to help control and clear these problems.

The name of the item I got is Mask of Magnaminty, the amount of product is 125g and I purchased it for €8.60. This mask is a deep cleansing face and back mask. Two of the main ingredients are china clay which is great for acne prone skin and fresh peppermint that gives your face a tingly feeling. I love peppermint or tea tea oil in any item I use on my body or hair. It gives a very fresh clean feeling.
