Drugs again

27 Apr

Hello everyone! I’m sorry to disappoint you all but I am again on acne medication. Ugh… it seems to happen quite often around this time of year. Final exams are over but I still have spots to remember the stressful times. Anyways, the doc said to try Doxycycline which kills bacteria inside out apparently and use the BenzaClin as a spot treatment. I am happy to report things were great the first two days and then I got more spots!! Then I realized it was the time of the month so… it makes sense. I didn’t remember what it was like the first time around but now I don’t know how I lived with the dry/tight skin feel and extremely sensitive skin. Man, I’m putting on sunscreen like CRAZY!! So to prove that I’m not lying (I mean why would you doubt me?) here’s a photo:

Oh, my sister cut my hair a while back and now it’s all summery short (which is nice) and today I got a pretty cool hairstyle after blowdrying check it:

Hee hee, one side straight the other… ahahaha I can’t help but laugh at myself. Hope you all are having a great day!!

Hello again…

23 Apr

Hello everyone! Shocking that I have not posted for quite some time right. It’s scandalous!!

 

So I just wanted to post that I am back I just had a bunch of exams (back-to-back kind ugh) and my laptop was again compromised. It took a trip to:

Los Angeles with my sister. She needed it to write stuff and the entire time I was wishing I had a desktop computer (which I will get one… in Aug). Anyways, I hope to be posting at the regular scheduled time intervals of Mon, Wed, and Fri perhaps more since I don’t have school anymore (just one more exam on Tues). Hope everyone is having a good day and a great long weekend!

One Year Anniversary!!

30 Nov

Hello everyone! It’s officially been 1 year since I began this blog. ONE YEAR!! Amazing!! So to celebrate all I did was… do homework… lovely isn’t it? Classes are ending soon so finals are around the corner. O.O Not prepared. But I’ll leave you with a picture of me… studying… I think?

I’ll celebrate after! I promise just after I finish my homework…

Happy?

2 Nov

Hey everyone! I haven’t posted in a while because it’s MIDTERMS!! Eeekk!! But anyways, this photo was from a while back and well let’s just say I was really happy after it.

Or was suppose to be but anyways, before you rant on me about the negativities of fast food I have to say that I earned my fast food treat. ^_^Studied hard over 6 hours that day before getting something to eat so I think I deserve that and I was shedding pounds like no tomorrow because I wouldn’t eat…

Anyways, I’m going out on a shopping excursion next week with my brother and his girlfriend so I predict another fast food run. ^_^ Take care.

Skincare Update

24 Apr

So as you can tell from my postage yesterday you can totally tell that I don’t have the perfect flawless skin that I want due to exams… >.<

The plan to to make this one a long post. I don’t have my camera anymore due to my sister stealing it and going for a joyride in Vancouver (curse band kids who get to go play). The skincare routine that I am using now is:

There seems to be alot there isn’t there? Yeah, just because I have found many things that work for me I want to use it all!

So let’s talk about the products there will be reviews later but just a general overview of them all.

Cleanser – Boots Botanics Brightening Cream Cleanser

Toner – Boots Botanics Brightening Toner

Moisterizer – Shiseido Oil-Free Mattifying Moisterizer

Treatment – Oxy 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, Viaderm-K.C. used as disinfectant, Bio-oil for scars

This skincare takes me about 7-10 minutes to do every morning depending if I’m going really fast or not. The time has upped since the last skincare one… >.< but these work really well!

Putting aside the skincare regime I want to focus on the Treatment aspect of my routine. As you can see I have 3 different types of stuff compared to last time where I just had Lush’s Grease Lightning as a spot treatment and disinfectant.

Since the Grease Lightning review I’ve used it up and moved onto find something new resulting in Oxy and Viaderm. Now Viaderm is only available through your pharmacist and what is does is that it treats rashes that have been infected with either bacteria or fungi. I know what you’re thinking rash treatment on acne? No way is that going to work. Well to be honest with you I was sceptical at first but it has helped out with the amount of breakout moments that I have. Now I have a clear forehead to the point where it absolutely scares me.

My sister likes to use Oxy on her acne and it’s been working pretty well for her. And as for the Bio-oil I’ve still got like 2 months and 3 weeks left to see if it actually works or not.

Whew, long post… thanks for those who actually read through all of it.

Test Phase

17 Apr

So I just finished one of my exams today which was Nutrition…. yes, we do take exams on Saturdays at University.

But putting that aside I’m going to do another long month before its due review this time’s long-term review product is:

Yup, Bio-oil… it claims to help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone. Just what I needed! So how you would use this is after your skincare routine you would massage it into the places that need the help and it can be used anywhere on the body. I’m going to try to work it on my acne scars and some stretch marks that I have on my thighs due to puberty… it says to give it at least 3 months… so 3 months later the review for those product will come out…

The amount of time that I use this product kinda reminds me of the Shiseido skincare set that I bought which lasted me 2 months and the review for it will be up soon. It seems I like to do long trials…. anyways, just a quick update. I’m going to go back to studying or watching Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World’s End…. maybe both of them at the same time… sounds like a good idea.

Long day = treat!

28 Jan

Yes… today was a long day… though not compared to yesterday. Since it was a pretty long day and I was pretty exhausted by the time classes ended at 2 I booked it home and made a new record! Bus ride home usually takes 1 hour and a half but today I only took 45 mins!! The dashing home must have been a good plan. ^_^

To commemorate how the cold is in Canada I decided to take this photo:

The cold here is not like any other cold… it’s so ninja! You think it’s warm and everything but then all of a sudden it’s cold!! Ninja! Well, it sinks deep into the bones making it seem really cold.

But since tomorrow I have an exam I decided that I would study lots today and I finished studying…. so I’m going to treat my skin to something really funky…

It’s my last Montange Jeunesse face mask… I love these things! I love the fact that the company doesn’t test on animals and that the product is made of natural ingredients (vegan!). The smells are great and everything!! It’s pretty cheap on the wallet too only $2CDN for one… I don’t know if they sell these in the US or not… but the company is from the UK so that’s pretty exciting  too! I’m going to need to go and buy more! This one is the Strawberry Souffle and it says that it’s a moisterizing and purifying mask. Perfect for winter time. What a nice way to treat myself.

That reminds me I have to go and get some more storage spaces for my area… it’s becoming a mess once again…

Or at least I feel that it is a mess… see how many things that you can spot on there! And yes there is a Christmas tree to the right-hand side. To me it’s Christmas everyday!! But I will eventually put it away just when is the question. ^_^

Anyways, going to get back to some more studying whoopeee!
