Matcha Green Tea Powder | Love Matcha | REVIEW

Hey everyone!

Welcome to my blog!

Today I’ve got a little health post for you all. I’ve been trying to live super clean and healthy lately so I thought it would be good to share some good stuff with you all. Hopefully, it will inspire you all to be healthier too!

What is Matcha?

Two weeks ago, I was sent a pouch of 100% natural Matcha Tea from Love Matcha, (straight from Japan), to review and to be totally honest I had never heard of ‘Matcha’ before, although, I have heard of green tea and after doing some FBI work on the stuff I’ve found out that Matcha is green tea! Matcha is a finely ground stone powder of a specially grown green tea. It is an excellent mood-enchancing, antioxidant powerhouse, natural weight loss aid, pH balancer and detox agent. It is perfect for simple tea’s, lattes, smoothies and cocktails.


Now, I’m no green tea expert but surprisingly I have been drinking green tea for years – I just buy the simple boxes of teabags which probably have less antioxidants and health benefits than the powder form. Although a few months ago my boyfriends friend who happens to be a professional MMA fighter (health freak, ahem) gave me some top quality Chinese green tea which he got from China itself. (It tastes bad and smells like absolute shit, but it’s good stuff). They were super good quality it’s just the smell puts me off drinking it. So yeah, I’ve tried the teabags but never the powder, until recently of course!


What’s is good for?

Matcha is good for almost everything! It is packed with vitamin C, it has 1573 antioxidants, it is high in Catechin which helps to speed up metabolism and burn fat quicker whilst exercising and it contains Cholophyll which helps to detoxify the body.


What I like best about it is that it helps to boost mood and mental well-being. I can be a moody bitch sometimes, I won’t lie, ha-ha so I hope the more I drink the better my mood swings will be.

How to use?

For a Matcha shot jar: (best way for me) Add 1/2 tsp of Match to the jar and fill it half way up with hot water, stir then fill the remainder of the jug with cold water and drink in one go.

For a Matcha Latte: Take 1/2 tsp of Matcha to your cup and mix it with 50 ml water. Once you have a liquid paste texture, top up your cup with warm milk. (You can use any milk) Almond & Coconut are my favourites and they are super healthy too but you can use cows milk if you wish!

For a Matcha Mint Iced Tea: Using a shaker, shake together water and 1/2 a tsp of Matcha until there are no lumps, then, add ice!

Add a tsp to a home made sugar scrub or face mask and mix good. (Make sure you do a skin allergy test first)

Where to buy?

You can get some Matcha here. For a 50g pouch it is £8.99 and for a 100g pouch it is £11.99.


The Matcha powder came in a re-sealable pouch so it will stay fresh for longer. It should also be stored in the fridge for maximum freshness!

The powder smells quite mild and the colour of it is beautiful, it’s like a bright sage, seaweed green if you get my drift – it’s a lovely colour. But… I didn’t like how it tasted. I tried this in both my coffee and tea and they turned a greeny-brownish colour. I wasn’t fond of the taste at all and I couldn’t sit there sipping away and enjoy it like I do a normal cuppa!


My friend recommended I try it in a smoothie instead, which I found more pleasant and easier to drink. I’ve also added some to yoghurt and it tastes better like this compared to adding it to tea and coffee.

My proffered way of drinking Matcha is in a chupito shot glass. I have 6 of them and they are a bit bigger than normal shot glasses and they have a lid. So I’ve been putting 1/2 tsp in each of my 6 jars, adding hot water half way up and stirring it then I fill the jar up with cold water and stir again. I then go for gold and down it in one like a sambuca. With the other 5 I screw the lids on, let them cool and I then store them in the fridge so my next one is already made.


I prefer this way because the drinking part is quick but I still get the healthy benefits of Matcha. You can get some chupito jars here.


Oh and Matcha can even be added to a homemade sugar scrub or a DIY face mask although I advise you do a skin allergy test 24 hours before you put it on your skin.

This is Culinary Matcha (cooking grade) and I believe it is a lower grade compared to Ceremonial Grade Japanese Organic Matcha, so if you are looking for the best quality, that is what you should buy/use instead. You can find some Ceremonial Grade Matcha here.

L’Oreal Paris Preference | MOUSSE ABSOLUE | #500 Natural Medium Brunette | Hair Dye Review

Hey Girls! xxx

Crazy hair lady has struck again!

I dyed my dark hair back to platinum blonde after swearing I would never bleach my hair again! I just can’t help it, I think I might just be a serial hair dyer! I always bleach my dark hair back to blonde on impulse (damaging it in the process), and then eventually I dye my blonde hair back to brunette again, also on impulse. It’s a vicious circle. LOL! I need to find a colour I like and stick to it because changing it up all the time is taking its toll on my locks.

So, here I am once again! I’m bored with my blonde hair and I feel it’s doing nothing for me at all, so, I’ve decided to dye it back to brunette. After speculating for weeks and trying hard to decide on a colour I really liked I went ahead and bought a box dye yesterday. I didn’t want to go as dark as I used to be (jet black) so instead I chose a medium brown which is close to my natural colour.

The dye I chose was L’Oreal Paris Preference MOUSSE ABSOLUE in the shade #500 (Natural Medium Brunette) which I bought from Home Bargains for just £1.99!
Yep, £1.99!
These dyes are priced between £10-£15 everywhere else so I believe I got my self a bargain! Thanks HB – I loveeeee you! If you’re thinking of buying one of these dyes, go to Home Bargains – save a few quid! They have a few other shades available too.

Included In The Box

• two chamber system with lid
• nozzle / precision diffuser
• 2 pairs of black gloves (slim fit)
• satin touch conditioner with UV filters
• instruction leaflet

 What I Liked About This Dye

The MOUSSE ABSOLUE dyes have two unique chambers, (think of two aerosols stuck together with a nozzle on top), I’m guessing one ‘aerosol’ is the creme colour and the other is the developer. It’s quite different to the bottle dyes I usually use which has an applicator tip and requires you to mix bottle 1 and bottle 2 together, blah, blah. Too much effort for me, ha!
With these you simply put the nozzle (precision diffuser) on top of the two chamber system, shake, shake, shake, squirt the mousse onto your hand and apply it to your hair. It requires little effort, so I loved this dye straight away for that reason alone, it allows me to be lazy!
These are the only re-usable box dyes that I’ve ever seen. I’m impressed. They can be used for a full head application or to touch up your roots and if there is any un-used product left over, instead of binning it, you can store it away and use it again the next time you re-do your roots. Amazing!!!
I also think they have a lot more product inside too, well, compared to normal bottle dyes. If you have short hair, one box will give you two full head applications. If you have medium length hair, (like me), one box will give you one full head application and a root touch-up. If you have long hair, one box will give you one full head application. So us shorties and middies are lucky, hey!

What I Didn’t Like

I found with this dye it takes more product than other dyes to completely saturate the hair for an intense colour. The fact I had lots of blonde spots here and there after dying it, annoyed me. I might have applied it wrong or never left it on long enough but after using two boxes in one sitting, carefully applying the moose to every strand and massaging it in, you would think it would be hard to miss bits of hair out. I’ve also noticed some area’s are a little bit ashy (especially at the ends) but I’m hopeful that another application will correct this.
Maybe it was because I was so light beforehand too. I have noticed in the past when dying blonde hair darker that the first application is always patchy and uneven in places. Blonde hair going brunette holds colour more and looks best when you dye it twice on two separate occasions, so this is what I’m going to do.

Before & After


I love it! I think I might have finally found my colour! My skin looks brighter, my green eyes stand out more and I’ve finally realised that I suit brunette hair much more than blonde hair. I should have listened to my Mother! He-he! It is the closest I’ve ever been to my natural colour – (last time I seen my natural colour was when I was about 12) and it really does look natural and classier than the blonde colour I had.
I will need to do another application to make my hair colour more vibrant and I do need to touch up some blonde spots that I accidentally missed out but overall, the base colour is lovely and I’m happy with it. After washing the dye off, I did find my hair a little dry and coarse afterwards but nothing a bit of argan oil & coconut oil hasn’t handled.
I am definitely going to keep this colour! I’ll be stocking up on MOUSSE ABSOLUE from Home Bargains just incase they sell out or stop stocking them. I don’t fancy paying near enough £15 somewhere else for a hair dye even if I do really, really like it. I’m going to get myself another two boxes, reapply one on my hair and dye my hair extensions with the other one.
I really like it so I do recommend it. 🙂

Arm & Hammer | Extra White Care | Gentle Daily Whitening With Fluoride | Toothpaste With Baking Soda | Review

Hey there everyone!


Welcome to my blog! 😊


Today, I’ll be sharing my review of Arm & Hammer – Extra White Care Daily Whitening Toothpaste with Baking Soda and thought I’d let everybody know what I thought of it and if it worked for me. I’ve been trialling it for a whole 7 days to see if it does the job it’s supposed to! It cost me jus 99p from my favourite bargain store, Home Bargains. I think Arm & Hammer toothpastes are more expensive in other stores as the brand is very popular.


I’ve always been a fan of Arm & Hammer, I love toothpastes that contain baking soda and I actually see them as one of the best toothpaste brands out there along with Denivit, Listerine and Oral-B. I’ve never been a fan of Colgate and it baffles me how they are probably the best selling toothpaste brand out there and the most popular toothpaste in the UK. I have seen much better results with the three listed above and I thought Colgate didn’t match up or whiten my teeth and remove stains as the other three have.

The last few years I have been a devoted Denivit user, I absolutely love the stuff, it whitens my teeth so well and it has an amazing anti-stain formula. Although one tube of Denivit doesn’t last as long as a normal tube of toothpaste. Another thing is the breath freshness. Although I love my Denivit, I’ve found it doesn’t freshen my breath as well as other toothpastes but nonetheless it’s still my favourite toothpaste. I have stopped using it for a whole week so I can trial a new one – not because I’m disappointed with it, I genuinely believe Denivit Anti-Stain & Whitening toothpaste is the best one I’ve used, hands down especially for whitening my teeth. I’m not trying to find a better toothpaste but instead a similar one that I can use alongside Denivit to freshen my stinky breath.

 Product information:


I’ve searched the internet high and low for information and for reviews on this toothpaste and I’ve had no joy whatsoever, not even on Arm & Hammer’s website. There is literally no information anywhere on Google about the Extra White Care toothpaste from Arm & Hammer which I think is a little strange, but never mind Katie Rose has got it sorted love! The info I do have about this toothpaste is printed on the packaging.

Here’s what it says…

Baking Soda Toothpaste Extra Whit Care Gentle Daily Whitening With Fluoride (125g)

|Cleans & Whitens: Baking soda cleans in hard to reach places.

|Incredibly Effective: Baking soda particles dissolve to gently clean & whiten teeth.

|Freshens Breath: Baking soda neutralises odour-causing compounds for intense breath freshening.

|Deep cleaning for extra white teeth.

|Fluoride cavity protection.

|Intense breath freshening.

Contains Sodium Fluoride (1100 ppm F)

Why I’m Using It

I’ve been using this baking soda toothpaste as it’s well known that baking soda, (or bicarbonate of soda as it is known in the UK) has great whitening and stain removing ability. I’m a heavy smoker who drinks about 20 mugs of strong coffee each day and I’m also a self confessed coke addict, (the drink, obvs!) LOL! So I think I am the perfect guinea pig for this toothpaste, wouldn’t you agree? 😊 After years of whitening and bleaching my teeth with peroxide whitening gels and carmabide teeth whitening kits, it’s safe to say my enamel is not as strong as it used to be, so my teeth are very prone to stains, discolouring, coffee breath (eurgh!) and ciggie breath (double eurgh!!) My anti-smoking boyfriend finds me so attractive! Ha! (I really should quit smoking!)

My main reason for using this: to freshen my breath.


Day 1: First time I used this, I thought wow! It’s a very intense feeling. I had a burning/tingling sensation on my lips, gum and tongue, although it did wear off after a minute or so. The toothpaste has a smooth white texture, a thick consistency and I found the flavour to be similar to those powerful XXXS mints as well as smelling like a packet of strong mints too. It’s a very, very strong mint flavour both scent wise and taste wise and it leaves a sweet peppermint aftertaste in the mouth. I’ve gotta say, it definitely does freshen the breath. No change in whiteness just yet but teeth do look and feel cleaner.


Day 7: The surface of my teeth feels so much smoother, almost like I’ve just had a professional clean & polish off my dentist. Old stains look a little bit lighter in appearance and no fresh/new stains have appeared. Breath is definitely fresher and because they look clean and polished they appear to be a little bit whiter.

I must add that this toothpaste can be used by children under 7 years of age – I personally don’t recommend this toothpaste for children as I think the tingling/burning sensation might be too much for their little mouths to handle. So this has passed the breath freshness test. I will be using this alongside my Denivit to make my teeth feel clean and polished and for helping my breath to smell ‘kissable’, minty and fresh.

The boyfriend will be happy, hey!

What’s your favourite whitening toothpaste?

Spill the beans! 😊

Dead Sea Mud Mask | Majestic Pure | Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne & Problem Skin Complaints


Hello ladies! 😊

I got myself some of this – Majestic Pure Dead Sea Mud Mask 260ml – Spa’s Premium Quality Facial Cleanser for All Skin Types – 100% Natural Formula, Absorbs Excess Oil, Removes Dead Skin Cells, Dirt and Toxins to Reveal Fresh and Soft Skin – Known to Heals Acne, Acne Scars, Pimp .. to trial for my skin which is very prone to breakouts, large pores and stubborn blackheads on my nose that won’t budge. I also have the odd bit of psoriasis on my face and I’ve heard Dead Sea mud does wonders for treating and improving psoriasis so I’ve been more than happy to try this mud mask out for my skin problems.


What Is Dead Sea Mud, Why Should You Use It & What Does It Do?

Dead Sea Mud starts out in the surrounding mountain areas as alluvial silt. Over time, this mud is washed down from the mountains by rain water until it reaches The Dead Sea, (a lake that sits between the West Bank, Israel and Jordan). Within the mud, scientists have found high concentrations of minerals like magnesium, bromides, phosphates and sodium.

Dead Sea mud is excellent for reducing inflammation, hydrating and improving psoriasis, acne and other skin disorders. Dead Sea mud helps give a healthier skin tone by removing dead skin cells that dull complexion. Once these dead skin cells are removed, new cells are able to regenerate for younger and healthier looking skin. Blood circulation in the face is increased and the skins complexion appears brighter. This causes toxins and acne-causing bacteria to be removed from the face. The mud mask increases the skins ability to absorb nutritious minerals and proteins.

Dead Sea Mud Mask is suitable for all skin types. It is a great face mask that helps to deeply cleanse and shrink large pores, which in turn eliminates blackheads and pimples. It also tightens and tones the skin as well as removing impurities. It is also beneficial to use Dead Sea mud as an anti-ageing treatment to reduce wrinkles and fine lines and it also significantly reduces redness and inflammation of the skin and can be used on both the face and body.

Apart from skin care, the Dead Sea mud is thought to help relax the muscles in the body. The mud increases tranquility and calmness. At the same time, arthritis patients use the mud to reduce aches & pains.

How To Use Dead Sea Mud Mask From Majestic Pure

It’s very easy to use, simply apply a thick layer of mud on to the face (and neck if you wish) and leave it to dry for 5 minutes. To remove the mask, gently rub your face in circular motions which helps exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells, then wash any remaining mud with warm water and pat dry with a towel. I use a good moisturiser afterwards to hydrate my skin even more.  

It’s recommended to use this mask about twice a week, five minutes each time.



What I love about Majestic Pure’s products is how natural and safe the ingredients are. (Full list of ingredients and their benefits are at the bottom of this post). A while ago I jumped on board the ‘natural’ bandwagon and turned my back on most products because they contain huge amounts of unnecessary chemicals, irritants, additives and artificial fragrances, which I believe do more harm than they do good. I’m convinced that using natural ingredients and chemical-free products is the best option for me, especially because of my psoriasis. One of the main reasons I’m on this natural route is to gently calm my skin disorder instead of irritating and aggravating it. I really do think natural is best – especially for problem skin!

I found this Dead Sea Mud Mask has a light pleasant aroma, I can’t pin-point the exact scent but I’d guess it was Aloe Vera. The mud is a light grey when sitting in the tub but once it has dried on the face it is dark grey, almost black. It was very easy to apply, although it did get a bit messy so I advise protecting your hair and clothes if you don’t want any product on them. I also recommend wearing plastic gloves when applying the mask, if you have any. Sh*t gets real messy!

Once the mask was on my face I waited around 10 minutes for it to dry (after the recommended time of 5 minutes, the mud was still wet.) I could feel a slight tightening on the skin although the sensation was not as ‘tight’ feeling as hard drying clay masks. Removal of the mask was easy too. I particulary enjoyed the exfoliating part the most – rubbing my skin just before washing it off to gently exfoliate my dead skin cells which I think definitely helped my skin feel softer and look brighter too. I was impressed with how soft my skin felt afterwards and I could definitely see a difference and slight improvement. I’m looking forward to using this twice a week to improve my skin further and hopefully calm my psoriasis.


Where to buy?

The tub was £29.99 but it’s now on sale for £10.49 , you can get a 250g tub of Dead Sea Mud Mask from Majestic Pure’s website here. Or if you prefer you can buy on Amazon UK just click the link to shop it here – Majestic Pure Dead Sea Mud Mask 260ml – Spa’s Premium Quality Facial Cleanser for All Skin Types – 100% Natural Formula, Absorbs Excess Oil, Removes Dead Skin Cells, Dirt and Toxins to Reveal Fresh and Soft Skin – Known to Heals Acne, Acne Scars, Pimp ..

You should check out the other products available from Majestic Pure, which I highly recommend! I’ve recently reviewed some of their Indian Healing Clay Mask from Majestic Pure which is a huge tub of bentonite powder and when mixed with water it creates a detoxifying clay – you can read all about it here.



Deionized Water – Deionized water is purified water which has mineral ions (salts) removed. The mineral ions that are removed include copper, iron, sodium, calcium, chloride, and bromide. Deionized water is made by taking conventional water and exposing it to electrically charged resins that attract and bind to the salts, removing them from the water. Because most of the impurities in water are mineral salts, deionized water is mostly pure.

Kaolin – Kaolin is a soft white mineral that has a large array of uses. It is most commonly found in the form of a fine clay that was originally produced in China, which is why this material is sometimes referred to as ‘China clay’. Like other clays, it is very absorbent, and it can pull oils and dirt out of the skin.

Shea Butter – Shea butter is extracted from the nuts of the Shea tree, which grows in the savannah of Western Africa. Growing up to 60 feet tall, the Shea tree does not flower before it is 20 years old and can live up to 200 years. The Shea nuts are harvested, crushed and boiled to extract the Shea butter. Given its high content in anti-inflammatory and healing components, Shea butter helps the healing of skin disorders and skin problems such as:

  • eczema
  • psoriasis
  • rashes
  • hives
  • insect bites / stings
  • contact dermatitis
  • dry skin
  • cracked skin
  • burns
  • minor cuts 

Aloe Vera Juice – Aloe Vera grows wild in tropical climates around the world and is cultivated for agricultural and medicinal uses. Aloe Vera is considered by many to be a miracle plant, it has a huge range of skin, health and hair benefits. Aloe Vera helps soothe sunburn because the natural nutrients and antioxidants in the plant work to soothe the pain and help to regenerate the skin. It’s great for acne too. Auxin and Gibberellins, two hormones found in Aloe Vera, have wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that help to reduce skin inflammation, promote the growth of new cells and al treat small minor cuts. Aloe Vera gel can help smooth out some those fine lines and wrinkles by improving the skins natural firmness. The gel of Aloe Vera plant can be also help treat scars as it promotes the healing process and softens the appearance of scar tissue

Sunflower Oil Sunflower oil is extracted from sunflower seeds. The oil is amazing for hydrating and moisturising the skin. Sunflower oil works well for improving psoriasis symptoms as well as soothing, sore, irritated skin..

Vegetable Glycerine Due to its hygroscopic properties, vegetable glycerine is used in many moisturising skin products because it seems to help relieve dry skin problems by drawing water up from the lower layers. It is also a component of glycerine soap, which is often used by people with sensitive skin. Vegetable glycerine is used as a substitute for ethanol in some products (the chemical known as alcohol) — The advantage of this is that people who do not want to be exposed to alcohol can still have access to the botanical products. The disadvantage is that the products without alcohol have a much shorter shelf life.

Jojoba Oil – Jojoba is a golden liquid wax (often called jojoba oil) that is made from the jojoba bean.  It is a plant native to South-western North America, and it was highly valued by the Native Americans as a potent balm for skin ailments.. Jojoba is a golden liquid wax similar to the protective wax produced by human skin to keep it smooth, supple and moisturised. Jojoba is the only plant in the world known to produce this unique golden liquid wax. All other plants in the world produce oils. Jojoba is naturally antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, analgesic, anti-inflammatory and hypoallergenic, so it is used to soothe a wide range of skin conditions.

Jojoba oil helps:

  • Scars
  • Burns
  • Rashes
  • Eczema
  • Dermatitis
  • Psoriasis
  • Nappy rash
  • Cradle cap
  • Acne
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Dry and sensitive skin
  • Sun damage
  • Pigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Oily skin
  • Age spots
  • Nourish hair 


Xanthan Gum – Xanthan gum is a sugar-like compound made by mixing aged (fermented) sugars with a certain kind of bacteria. It is used to make medicine. In manufacturing, xanthan gum is used as a thickening and stabilizing agent.

Calendula Oil – Calendula oil is distilled from the flower tops. The oil is anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial so it is helpful for wounds, acne, ulcers, bed sores, varicose veins, rashes, psoriasis, eczema and other skin conditions.


Have any of you used any Dead Sea mud products before to improve any skin problems? Did they improve your skin?

Indian Healing Clay (Powder) from Majestic Pure



I was so excited when this therapeutic grade Indian Healing Clay arrived from Majestic Pure. I love my facemasks and use them quite regularly. I love them even more when they don’t contain any nasties or chemicals. I’ve used all kinds of clay facemasks in the past mainly 7th Heaven ones which come in a little pouch as well as sheet-masks from a Korean beauty store, but I have never tried any from Majestic Pure as I’ve only recently became a fan of their products. I’ve had lots of their essential oils though and I they were good quality & I really loved them, so I got myself this Indian Healing Clay which contains 100% Pure Sodium Bentonite and nothing else! I’ve also ordered a Dead Sea Mud Mask from Majestic Pure so I can’t wait until that arrives either!


 What Is Clay?

Clay makes a fabulous face mask for shrinking pores, tightening and toning skin, removing impurities, getting rid of dead skin cells and just making your skin look and feel good! It’s good for soothing the skin and is especially good for treating cuts, bruises, insect bites, bee stings, boils, rashes achy joints, acne and burns amongst others!

For more info on Pure Sodium Bentonite, click here.

Before I get into my review, I have to give you a little tip/warning – If you buy this, before you open the tub, don’t lie down when your opening it for the first time! I lied on my bed lying down and began to open the tub to have a nose at the contents… What happened? All the powder went all over my new top! Ha-ha. I really thought this was a ready made face mask and it was solid clay and all yo do was dip your hands into the tub then apply it as it is, straight to your face – but it’s not… It’s clay POWDER which you add water to and then mix to a smooth paste! Blonde moment! So be careful when you open this so you don’t waste any product!


I was very pleased at how big the tub is. It looks much bigger than the picture the company have displayed, which actually looks quite little compared to when the tub is in front of you. It does say that the tub is 16oz but I’m useless at oz, fl, mg, g measurements and the likes so I never had a clue about how much product I was buying. I did expect this to be a much smaller tub!

On the side of the tub are directions for use which is handy as I had never used clay powder before so I didn’t know how to mix it – definitely saved me a Google search trip. For the face all you do is mix 3 parts water with one part clay powder then mix it until you’ve got yourself a smooth paste! Put it on your face and leave on for 20 minutes. It does say if you have sensitive skin you should leave the clay on for 10 minutes only and reduce the time in half. To wash off – just use lukewarm water. Simple! This can also be used for clay baths and foot soaks tot, the clay draws toxins from the skin and pores so it’s great for your body as well as your face, but I’ve only tried it on my face at the moment.


When mixing this I put 3 parts water and 1 part clay powder into a bowl and mixed but it didn’t seem I had done it properly so I added a bit more clay and water and mixed like mad, it was lumpy to begin with but after continuously mixing I was left with a smooth paste. I scooped it up with my fingers and slathered it all on my face (you might want to wear plastic gloves as it gets messy!) I left the clay mask on my face for about 20-25 minutes and felt it drying after 5 minutes. I love how clay masks feel on the skin when they dry. I then washed it off with warm water and dried with towel. My face did look a bit red once it was washed off but the redness faded, I think my skin is more sensitive than I thought and I probably should have left it on for 10 minutes instead. When the redness faded, my skin looked great and was lovely and soft to touch. I’m going to use this 1-2 a week, I’m hoping for a clearer complexion and I’ve tried everything to get rid of impurities and blackheads under my skin on my nose and nothing has worked so far. As this clay draws out impurities and toxins I think my skin will definitely improve the more I use it! Best thing is the powder will last a lifetime as only one scoop is needed each time!


You can get some here from Magestic Pure on Amazon UK. It’s £8.49 to buy.
