Fashion and Style Police Reviews Beauty Caffe & Aveeno

I am always looking out for new great skincare products to try. I have heard a lot of good things about Aveeno. So I knew I had to try some of the products and see for myself. Beauty Caffe Beauty Scrub also landed on my doorstep some weeks ago, and I was keen to try that out too!

This Coffee Scrub is natural and organic. It leaves the skin soft, smooth and hydrated from head to toe. This product is very high in antioxidants to nourish and protect your skin, helping to repair and rejuvenate your body.

I have used it a few times now and I really like what it does to my skin. I apply it all over my body in the shower and it leaves my skin feeling soft and supple.

The Coffee Scrub is made with fresh ground coffee beans, brown sugar and Himalayan Rock Salt which helps scrub away the dead flaky skin.

 

PROS
  1. It does all it promises on the pack. I love how smooth my skin is after using this scrub.
  2. It contains only natural and organic products which is amazing.
  3. I like the light RRP of £12.99.

CONS
  1. The packaging is not practical. It can be a bit messy to use.

 

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion

I have heard a lot of good things about the Aveeno brand so I decided to test some of the products for myself. I got this Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion some days ago and I have been using it everyday. This lotion is clinically proven to go beyond 24 hour moisturisation and replenish the skin’s natural barrier function, to significantly improve the condition of dry skin in just 2 weeks. And I think it does just that.

I got this lotion from my local Boots to help with my dryness after having a facial treatment – Crystal Microdermabrasion Treatment. It is a treatment that sheds off the dead facial skin but more on that treatment later.

  4. My skin looks a lot smoother after daily use of this moisturising lotion.
  5. It absorbs quickly and just sinks into the skin.

 

CONS

None. I love this product a lot.

 

 

Aveeno Daily Moisturising After Shower Mist

This Aveeno Daily Moisturising After Shower Mist is made from oat axtract, which intensely nourishes dry skin in one application. I have been using it for some days now and I really like it. Never used anything like this shower mist before.

Stop Believing These Beauty Myths

It’s a good thing to know the right tips and hacks to help you enhance your beauty. But over the years, social media has been able to make us believe some “beauty secrets” that are simply not true.

We have all fallen victim of these beauty myths at some point in our lives – perhaps some of you still believe these myths until now. So, I have put together 6 beauty myths that you should stop believing. I’m sure this will change your life.

Beauty Myth #1: Your concealer should be lighter than your foundation

We see it all over Instagram and YouTube in almost every makeup tutorial that the concealer must be lighter than your foundation. But that’s far from the truth.

You don’t need a lighter shade of concealer. Concealers ought to be the same colour as your skin tone as this will help cover the dark areas under your eye or blemishes and ensure that you have a more even skin colour.

 

Beauty Myth#2: You can erase your pores with the right products

It can get a little annoying seeing the large pores on your face. However, nothing can actually be done to erase pores. This is because pores are part of your skin. So don’t be deceived when you come across a product that promises to erase your pores.

The best those products can do is to temporarily reduce the size of your pores. They do this by unclogging the pores. But after some time, your pores will get clogged again and expand as they fill up.

 

Beauty Myth #3: You must apply eye cream with your ring finger

Ever wondered why many women use their ring finger to tap eye cream into their skin? The ring finger is the weakest finger in your hand. The skin around your eyes is sensitive, so you have to be very gentle on those areas. Since your ring finger is weak, you don’t have to worry about applying too much pressure while applying eye cream.

But the truth is that it really doesn’t matter which finger you use. What’s important is that you apply eye cream gently irrespective of the finger you use.

Beauty Myth #4: Your hair grows longer when you trim

When your hair is not growing as long as you wanted it to, the first tip someone would give is to trim your hair regularly. But trimming your hair won’t help you retain length.

Each time you trim your hair, you’re cutting off length. You hair doesn’t get to grow beyond its usual length because you keep cutting it off.

If you really want to grow your hair, give yourself frequent scalp massages. Doing this will help stimulate blood flow and reduce stress on your scalp, which will make your hair grow longer.

 

Beauty Myth #5: Your acne diminishes when you apply toothpaste

Remember this trick? I did this a lot when I was younger. Thank goodness I saw the light! Well, now the truth is out. Applying toothpaste on your skin doesn’t reduce acne or diminish redness. Most times it just irritates the skin.

The ingredients in your average tube of toothpaste are actually too harsh for your skin. This promotes adverse effects rather than solve your skin issues.

 

Beauty Myth #6: Your hair grows thicker when you shave

There are many ways to get rid of unwanted hair on your body. However, the method that is frowned at a lot is shaving your hair. People believe that when you shave your hair it comes back thicker. The truth is that your hair doesn’t actually grow thicker when you shave. When your hair grows, the strand closest to your skin has a thicker base then thins out at the tip. This gives off the illusion that your hair is growing thicker.

Fashion and Style Police Reviews Fat & the Moon Mermaid Mask

I have recently started using this Fat & the Moon Mermaid Mask and I have quite a lot to say about the skincare product. This face and hair mask is one of the products I have been trying this month. I am always interested in any skincare product that promises to improve my skin so this Fat & the Moon Mermaid Mask had my attention as soon as it landed on my doorstep. This Mermaid mask was inspired from a raw dessert that went wrong. The mask promises to tone and moisturise at the same time.

Here are my thoughts on this face mask –

 

PROS
  1. It left my face feeling smooth and soft.
  2. My face felt very clean after using this Mermaid Mask.
  3. It is quite affordable at £16.50.
  4. A little goes a long way. I only needed to mix 1 teaspoon of the mask with a few tablespoons of hot water and massage into your face. Leave on for at least 20 minutes.
  5. My face felt moisturised after using this mask.
  6. It is a multi tasking product. It can be used as a face and hair mask.

CONS
  1. It can be a bit messy when mixing and applying so ensure you do this in your bathroom/shower room.
  2. I am not a fan of the smell.

 

Overall, I like the Fat & the Moon Mermaid Mask as a face mask. I can see myself using it again and again. I am yet to try it on my hair because I currently have cornrows on but I will be trying it once I take them out. It is definitely a product worth trying if you are in need of a different type of face mask. It does all it promises to do and more.
