Introducing my favourite oil of the moment… DōTERRA, Lemon!

The cleansing, purifying, and invigorating properties of Lemon make it one of the most versatile oils, not to mention the top-selling essential oil that doTERRA offers.

Lemon oil on my face, swag. #Lemonde🍋

I haven’t got a bad thing to say about this oil. I’d go as far as to say it’s the first product that I’ve applied on my face which gave results after just one application.

I use it all over my face and then apply a soothing Kiehl’s mask on top before going to bed and wake up the next day with the better skin than the night before. In the morning, I wash the mask off and apply coconut oil before a Kiehl’s serum and then moisturiser.

Next time I’m applying my DōTERRA oil, I’ll be sure to watch Keith Lemon as I apply it.

Some people dilute it, I just apply it straight on. I use it on my face, but others like to get massaged with it after having their significant other light a few candles to set the scene. Use it as you wish. You can also experiment by using it with other oils. I have DōTERRA’s Cypress (not the country) and ZenGest. However, I personally don’t think they’re as great as the Lemon.

CBD is the closest I’ll get to a zoot. I’m naturally high on my own supply, so imagine if I started doing weed as well!? Perish the thought!

Seeing as I use lemon and coconut oil in unison daily, I cannot use CBD oil alone too! Instead, I’ve been implementing it into my skincare routine another way, in the form of a moisturiser.

The Inkey List’s Hemp Oil Moisturiser is lightweight, and dries to reveal a matte-finish instantly.

Why do I love it?

It’s quite affordable (at £7.99) and helps my skin look less stressed, irritated, dehydrated and tired. It’s also anti-ageing. Any dermatologist would tell you to start with anti-ageing products earlier, so your skin gets used to it. I’ve been using it since I was like 23.

Thank God (and Psy) for Korean Hemp Plants!

What does it do to my skin?

Calmer, plumper and better protected skin that is a smooth matte to touch. Matthew!

What does The Inkey List say about it?

Whilst perfect for dryer skin, Hemp is also benefical for skin that just needs a nourishment boost if it has become irriated or dehydrated by many lifestyle factors such as sun exposure, travelling or general irritation, and needs a bit of calm.

Might fuck around and get The Inkey List’s skincare range tattooed on my arm like a full-sleeve. #INKEY

carbon-theory-charcoal-soap

Carbon Theory; a fresh way to cleanse skin and ban breakouts with three powerful natural ingredients combined in a solid bar, Activated Charcoal, Tea Tree Oil, and hyper moisturising Shea Butter.

This is the most-talked about beauty product right now, and I got to try it!

The cleansing bar:

Our lab-formulated Charcoal & Tea Tree Oil Break-Out Control Facial Cleansing Bar has been dermatologically proven to prevent breakouts and keep your skin clear, balanced and hydrated.

For £6, this keeps the pre-menstrual breakouts at bay.

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know that I use charcoal quite a lot. I use charcoal powder on my teeth, and have been partial to charcoal scrubs, masks and cleansers – literally everything is charcoal.

Mask?

Lush: Prince of Darkness

Cleanser?

This, and Bioré.

Scrub?

Dr Organic.

Charcoal tooth powder?

This.

But, this is a great all-over body soap too. The rumours are true, it clears the skin and leaves it looking fresh.

Want a bar before it sells out? Check out the range now.

I’ve got a theory about carbon, it’s breathtaking.

poem

The sun in the clouds, the birds in the trees, the freedom to do as we please.

The prayers in our heart, the plans in our mind, the future is ours to find.

Life knows a stumble and a buckle, but it also hears a chuckle.

Black/white, high as a kite… The choice is ours whether to fight or flight.

The hurt you’re feeling now will become the catalyst of the victory you’ll receive later.
