CLINIQUE



I've been having a little skin problem since when puberty started. I didn't really got acne, it wasn't that bad, but it made me really insecure. Every morning I woke op, looked in the mirror to see a new pretty red mark on my face. Ofcourse I picked on it, a lot, and it even got worse. With the purpose of hiding my zit perfectly, I threw on lots an lots of make-up. Went to school, came back to see that sometimes my zit got even worse and sometimes my zit got dry and ugly. I didn't get it. My skin looked so oily and make up was greasing off and the same times I had a lot of dead skin on my face. How can that even be? Isn't that a contradiction? I bought very harsh drugstore products for scrubbing and cleaning, thunking it would help. If it says 'problem skin' it would be perfect for me. After years and years of telling to myself all those products helped, I got crazy and I bought the high end Clinique 3 step set. It comes in four sets: very dry, dry, oily combination and very oily. I got the first one. I heard it helped a lot of people with their skin, so maybe it would help me. I've been using this for a few months now and honestly I'm amazed. I love how it leaves my skin, it's not yet perfect but I think it's possible. This is how you use it:


Step 1: before you begin, clean your face so it's make up free and all clean. Then  you pump a little out of the gentle face cleaning gel and put it on a moist face, then just make rubbing motions so your face is clean and you can go on with the next step.

Step 2: towel dry your face so it isn't wet anymore. Take a cotton pad and put on just a little bit of the lotion on it. You only need that for a whole face. So this is where the magic begins. You just wipe it all over your face, avoiding the eye area. It gives your complexion that tingling feeling, but what it really does is removing the dead skin cells.

Step 3: you don't wipe off the lotion, it isn't necessary. After that, you get a little bit of cream and you gently put it on your face. So that's it! You repeat it twice a day, in the morning and the evening, it only takes 2 minutes.

I feel it really works. The gel isn't hard at all, very gently, and it leaves a filter on my face so it's very soft. The lotion keeps away the dead skin, so my face is very smooth. The cream helps me to maintain the moist in my skin all day and all night long. This wasn't a sponsored post at all, I just want to recommend this to everyone with problem skin

New shoes

Shoes from Converse, New Look and Pimkie

I love shoes. They can make or break an outfit. You can wear a dress with sneakers and look insta casual, switch them for heels in the evenening and you look insta party-ready. That's why I think shoes are the key pieces in your closet. It's also the reason why I like having a lot of shoes. Sometimes sneakers, sometimes flats, sometimes super high heels. I would say these shoes are my latest buys but they actually aren't. I bought these 3 pairs of shoes a while ago, I like to wear them first before I put them on my blog just to review, how they feel after a while. 
 The first pair I bought were these super fancy high heels from Pimkie. I needed some new heels for my graduation back in July, to wear with my white dress. Yes, ofcourse, going for the old black-white-red lip-hollywood curls. I must say the heels are suite nice to walk in, thanks to the thick heel. They also have a peep toe at the front, which I love.  
 My next pair are the boots from New Look, probably the most comfortable pair I've ever owned. I was looking for an elegant flat boot, which is hard to finf these days in the shops full of ten centimeter heels. But you know, New Look never succeeds to fail for me. Can't stop wearing these ones, so nice to wear and they go with absolutely everything!
 My third pair are these black Converse sneakers, which I owned before.  I can say the previous ones weren't black anymore, neither was the sole white, there were a lot of holes in it and the fabric was totally trashed. Oops. Guess all the skateboarding, the running from physical education and all the parties weren't that good for them. Just kept the pair for all these activities and the related ones just to take care for the ones I own now. Can you believe it's the only pair of sneakers I own? I guess I don't really like sneakers... By now, I already bought two pairs of shoes which will be on the blog soon,  I've got so much more posts going on! Stay tuned for more posts, and take care!
