Glam glow supermud review

Wow.

Glamglow mud

I was literally over and beside myself to try this one day.

All the bloggers and everyone was going on about glam glow mud

Oh my. 

Surprise,one day it appeared in my sephora playbox.

I must really apologise for the lack of unboxing videos.

I had initially planned to make a post about the boxes then I thought videos would be better but I ended up with none of the above.

Sigh!  

So here we are.

I recieved a wee bit of a sample and trust me it was enough to make up my mind about it.

I found that this was as good as activated charcoal benefits with some glycolic acid thrown In to boot.

Such a beautiful product. Perfect for lazy days and long nights. I used it on acne spots and I also used it all over my face. I’m not particular about following stuff like this up with a lot of moisture because I’m not keen on that .. however if you love a soft pliable face, I suggest a rose mist after this and your skin will be absolutely glowing.

I’ve tried to diy it at home but of course, without a good preservative system the mud will definitely be spiked with bacteria after a while. 
It goes on smoothly and can be spread out on your face. I just use my fingers on a premoistened face.

To take it off you use a soft facial sponge soaked in warm water. I don’t like using soap or cleanser to take it off it becomes a bit of a drag.

It’s absolutely and awesome product and worth the rave. 
Buy it wherever you see it.

It’s wonderfully good.

Ingredients include 

ALL THE ACIDS IN THE WORLD.

now you know why it’s popular.

Essential oils and stuff to bind and stabilise them all together 

For those who want an end to all of their pesky facial problems and a little bit of glow from a mask, this is your baby.

It retails at about $69 for a full size.

Available on their site and on sephora.com

But hey, do you see why I love high end beauty boxes ?

Makeup forever mist and fix review


My first experience with a makeup fixing spray and it’s an awesome one. 

Makeup for ever is a brand every junkie must have heard about in their lifetime of fixes.

I got this spray from Marshall on a cheap and I do not for once regret buying it. 

I use it on my face after makeup and also sometimes spritz on the brush before foundation. I find this  fixes my foundation so good there’s no transfers afterwards.

It lasts a good 7 to 8 hours on my face and trust me that’s something good because my skin is oily to combination on my face. 

My oily tzone is legendary but this takes away those worries for a long time. 

Ingredients-

Packaging is perfect  it couldn’t come any other way ( until the beauty industry surprises us)

I quite love the simplicity of black and white.  

It gives a certain luxurious feel to products. 

I love it and I give this a good 8/10 just for the lack of a luxury smell to it.

I fancy adding some lavender to this would make it a topnotch product 

I have another spray to review  so be on the lookout. 
Have yourselves a lovely easter weekend.

Blogger conference 

Hi guys,

It’s been an extremely long time since I posted and I must say I’m missing you all a lot.
So it’s been very busy in the newborn unit but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a lot of stuff lined up for you
Today, 

I want to talk about influencers and bloggers within our sphere of life and outside.

I’ve been privileged to interact with a number of bloggers online and have made friends and valuable contacts.

What I appreciate most about blogging is the fact that a relative interest a person has in a subject can generate so much buzz and followership. 

It’s like a group of people find they have similar interests because one person decided to talk about it.

Bloggers have found themselves almost like the new celebrities. People depend on them for what to wear,use and buy.

I recently was inspired  by someone from eventbrite and they gave me such a wonderful idea. 

What if I could have all the bloggers I wanted on a panel to discuss certain issues. Like a blogger conference. 

I would say such an event would definitely have to be like a getaway set somewhere in an idyllic getaway location..

My perfect place would be somewhere in obudu cattle ranch in calabar, nigeria 

It would be perfect for travel, the experience of getting there and the scenery and natural life would definitely inspire and get creative juices flowing. 

My ideal panel would  consist of  people I admire in blog sphere. 

1. The man repeller – check out her blog /site the man repeller

2. Caroline hirons – she needs no introduction. caroline an awesome force and influencer with in depth knowledge of products and skincare.

3. Awedbymonica – fashionable as fashion  can be awedbymoni

4. Ufuoma akpantem of sizzelle store who is a beauty blogger and successfully runs one of the foremost online stores in nigeria for beauty.

5. Nini of nini on instagram

This isn’t such a long or big fancy list but I do find myself checking these bloggers out and I feel they have something to offer  either by way of enjoying blogging and excelling at it to turning it into a business. 
You could host your own conference, meeting,getaway or whatever it is you wanted to do and hey make some money on the side.

What if you had something you really wanted to share and get paid for ?

You can try hosting yours with eventbrite
