Skin Care Masks.

Hey every one. How are you all doing? I've been pretty much under the weather so much so I had to visit my GP. ( Doctor.) Yeah  not much fun but hey am on the mend! Thank goodness. So here we are in JUNE! I felt like May was such a long month and it dragged!
Any way to start of the month of June and with keeping in the healthy and TLC of ones self I found something really cool online. I was wanting to cheer myself up and came across a website that sell masks- face masks. Now I LOVE those paper masks that are dripped in magical lotions and when I found this I had to treat myself to them.
This is by a company on Facebook called MaskGenie who do a parcel of masks each week like a bundle of mixed kinds and send it out to you.

So it came at the total of around £11 with shipping and took about 2 weeks to get to the UK from China,ame by China post and I was delighted to get my parcel the other day. I got a mix of skin treatments to try and even the Snail mask! (eww.)
I got 10 masks in total and was very happy with my purchase and it is more of your Asian brands of Face / Skin care. Inside my parcel my masks were all tied up in a red net like bag. The other thing is I have never tried any of these masks which is nice cause I love trying new beauty items.  Most of them are the paper sheet style and the others are a wash off mask and a few are the jelly like collagen styles. 

The website was simple to use and easy to work. I really am looking forward to using my new masks - just what the beauty doctor ordered. I have already tried two since getting my order which were amazing. Mind you its not the most attractive thing to have on your face but after my skin felt so much better!

Even though May dragged out a fair bit for me I was showered with a couple of gifts for my anniversary by Mr and to my delight I got a very cute looking Hello Kitty bead style watch and a pink heart dress ring  which matches it well and is utterly adorable. I felt like a princess wearing my ring and watch haha.





Am looking forward to what June brings me and with any luck the UK shall get some summer like weather (Please!) If you want to keep up regularly with me don't forget to check out my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

My Melody all the pink things!


I love pink, but I could not pin down it as my favourite shade cause I love every colour. At the moment it is Pastels am so addicted to pastel shades! I guess this is where My Melody comes in. I wanted to share with you a new product I got. It is from a ebay shop based in Japan and the seller is very helpful and has provide me with a wonderful service that I keep returning to spend all my money on cute stuff!



From Sanrio's Hello Kitty to Disney Japan and even Pokemon there is a lot of things for you to let your eyes gaze over and admire. Any way the product I wanted to share with you all is a My Melody product*.

If I said . I totally did not but this due to the packaging , I would be a really bad lair.. . OF COURSE I BOUGHT IT FOR THE CUTE PACKAGING!
Its not just something that looks cute as it do have a use as well, this 3D shaped my melody hold in side her hand cream! And wait what? I  just happened to have run out of mine. Who am I trying to kid here? lol No honest I have run outta hand cream it was a boot's own range one. I clearly needed to give this a Kawaii make over by buying this one!

So this item took about a week to arrive, I had tracking on this so I could check up on the status of the order when ever I wanted and also ordered a small plush to add to my collection . My items came well packed in a small box and the items were wrapped up inside. The My Melody item was presented in a see through clear box . It is on the small side but soo cute! The 3D shape of Melody is so sweet sitting on my dresser .



 The hand cream is peach in scent and is lovely its quite a think mixture so a little goes a long way. Its also not sticky either. I find some can be sticky on the hands. It seems to absorb well into the skin and I love the smell.I try and use it before I do my nails and such to give my hands some TLC But I just adore this product so much.

It also helps having such a trust worthy seller, who runs the shop on Ebay and would go out their way to help you.  So I would say this is my high recommended Ebay seller for all your Kawaii needs! You can also find the other kawaii Sanrio products featured with this My Melody Hand Cream at the same Ebay sellers shop!

Enjoy

How to be Kawaii -Skin Care

Hey cuties!
Oh am so sorry I have been so half bothered about my blog, I suppose I really have had no motivation of late to blog about anything, everything has gone so quite! But I have not forgotten about my blog!
I am actually going to give it a bit of love and attention by giving it a make over! but it will take time . Talking of Make overs my blog post today is going to be all about my Skin Care routine.
Having Good healthy clear skin is a start on becoming and staying super Kawaii!

I am often asked, ''What's your secret?'' '' How is your skin so clear and perfect?'' ''Do you suck the youth of children to look so young?!''. Well yes I do suck the youth of children to keep my eternal young looking skin- that there, is my secret...OF course not!! *stares blankly* So I thought, I would share what I do. It really is not any secret at all. And if it helps you in any way or might give you some ideas then its worth a shot then.

The Brands that I use are Simple its a nice easy to use range of products , The Moisture, Toners and make up removers .These are products I have used for years and like them as they are gentle and light on my kind of skin..I have no idea what sort of skin I have but I will take a guess and say its c
The other products I use are the Good things Range from Boots which are the Manuka and Honey products of a Mask and Face Scrub. These I use either once a week, or every second week, I try to keep it to once a week to keep on top of giving my face a good clean but sometimes that is not the case. The Mask and the scrub smell so nice to me it is like giving myself a treat or some me time. As having a 3 year old little one clinging to you 24/7 . Some times you just want a bit of time to your self!

I admit I do not aways remember to use my Moisture and Toners, I try my best to mind to use my products before make up and such but am just being honest I do not always have the time. But one thing I do do, which i think plays a big part of keeping my skin nice and healthy is. I take off all my make up before bed, There was a time * hangs head in shame* where I would roll in from the dancing ( back in the day.) and be like out for the count or not be bothered to remove the make up and wake up the next day with make up smeared all over my face and pillow.. Not a Pretty sight haha!
Now I have a go to bed routine which is using my Simple products of Make up wipe removers. I switch from a cleanser one to a ex-foliate one the both do the same job. Once I get all my make up off I pay close attention to the eye area and be gentle around that and my lips.

Now if any of you know me well..I LOVE bright coloured and high pigmented lips, From Hot Pink to Bright Red! I love to have bright colours but those sorta colours can be powerful and some times dry your lips out or those ones which have high staying power ...yuno the ones, that are like water proof smudge proof and bullet proof, yup those's ones! They can really take it out on your lips so I like to use a lip scrub I got an Asian brand one- the name I have  forgotten- I use that every week when I do my face skin scrub and Mask.
But the other thing I do every night is layer on some chap stick or lip balm for my lips to get hydrated while I sleep.

Talking of sleep! Sleep is also a great thing for your skin. When you sleep your skin repairs its self, and a other top tip is drinking LOTS of Water! Yea when I have a cheeky day of junk food ...What? It's okay.. some times you have to eat all the things and junk and fizzy drinks but...I take the next day to snap out of it and avoid all junk food and flush it out my system by drinking more water, its good for your system and your body!
The other thing I like to do when I can is I take every so often a NO- Make-up day(s)! Yup that means NOTHING AT ALL! I go about my day bare faced and face all so natural, Its a good idea to let your skin breathe every once and a while , if you are not keen on the idea why not pick it as a day where you are not up for doing anything  or on holiday. I am not a person who can not leave the house with out make up but I do like to keep my best. But its something I do suggest you try.

Remember every one has different skin so some of the products I use might not be best suited for you - so best talk to those beauty girls at the department stores and am sure they can help you with products and skin care too!

So every one that's the big old secrets to my eternal youth *cough* I mean the secrets to my Skin Care, its just basic stuff and like every one else some times am on top of my game other times am not, but that's okay. I will just pick up the pieces tomorrow

Luna.TU Review

Hey every one, how are you all doing?
I have a review for you all and some links to my newest Videos! Today review is from the online line store LunaTU . It is a new online web store that sells Japanese and Koren make up , skin care and beauty items. There is even a Kawaii section too. Any way I put in a order with them last Thursday and my order came on Saturday- yea my review is a tad late but I had some beauty out brakes and my skin was like woah!! Easy now, take a time out and go all natural. But after a lot of detoxing .So did I get around to testing the items from my order. So here is my review for you all!

My order came really fast and was well wrapped in Bubble wrap.I ordered 3 items. The website gives a clear description on each item. I got a lip mask, a lip moisture/concealer and eye-liner. All the items came in a super cute packaging. Kawaii ~
Sorry in advance of the , lack of photos- I happend to use the items in a video before I wrote in my blog!


So lets check out the items! 1st up is the lip  concealer, made for toning down red lips and moisture. Doubled up as a lip base for under your fave lippy or gloss. The product is cute and small with a stick of shimmery nude pink. I used it under my own normal bright lippy for a even tone and bring out the shade from the lippy I use, ( Barry M btw.)



This item can be used alone as well and I think it would be a girls best friend for doing 'Dolly'' or 'Rose bud style'' lips. It glides on very easy and smooth and shimmery. The other Lip product I got was the Glossy Lip mask. Omg this product was amazing. weird at first to use but yea wow. I love it it left my lips feeling super and I mean super ,soft and moist. You can have it on for 5- 30 mins. It looks really creepy on but its really amazing!


The final product I ordered was the Sailor moon Miracle Romance, Black Eye liner. A 20th Anniversary product. which came packed and all pretty. The eye liner pen is also cute. Pastel pink with gems and images all over it such as a moon and even Luna the cat. Its quite a small eye liner pen to what am used too.I picked the Black shade.
The eye liner is a felt thin and I mean super thin tip(0.1mm)!! That is something I have not seen over here in the UK market of eye liners. I have given this a go and it glides on so well and you can layer it up to thicken the liner on your lids.


Over all am very happy with my order. Again because there was a lack of presentation my order didn't feel very Kawaii when opening. (Again this is a total personal thing of mine. I cant help it that I think every thing must be super cute!!!) Hehe.
However. I can seem me ordering again. I would say from what I have tried already . I would like to try the lip mask again it was really good. I would want to try other products too such as the skin care and would recommend this shop . I look forward to all the new exciting products that will be stocked soon.

Hope you all like my review!
Till later Tartan <3
