My best kept skincare secret is Aloe Vera gel. I cannot explain to you how great it is for the skin, but for the purpose of my blog – I’m going to have to try.

I apply it everywhere, especially on my face. Since applying one layer daily, I’ve noticed my skin is softer, smoother and radiant-er.

Although some makeup artists don’t recommend applying it underneath makeup, I have been… If you use it sparingly, it can act as a good base.

Things you can use Aloe Vera gel as:

  1. A mask for the skin – lather your face in layers, leave to dry and peel off.
  2. Moisturisers – apply daily, in the morning or evening (depending on your preference.

Does it stink? Yes, it doesn’t smell like the nicest thing in the world, but the benefits overshadow its scent. I spritz some rose water on my face if the smell of aloe vera gets overpowering.

Benefits of using Aloe Vera gel:

  1. Good for softening fine lines, wrinkles
  2. Good for dry skin
  3. Good for blemishes, scars and acne
  4. Good for evening out the skin-tone
  5. Smoothens the skin
  6. Is just an all round MVP of a natural skincare product.

There you have it, Aloe Vera gel. Get some and apply some…

Growing Aloe Vera and applying some directly from the plant is safest. I’m working on that. But, getting it from the store in a squeezy bottle works just as well.

Netflix

I’ve reached 400 followers on my blog! Thank you to all who follow, and those that keep up-to-date with my posts even though I haven’t been blogging regularly.

To celebrate, here’s a post dedicated to all of you.

The beloved American-sitcom Friends is still on Netflix, so I will be sitting in my Netflix pants and watching it all day.

Moral of this post? We’re all friends. There’s also nothing better than watching Friends.

This is a great day out for all the family, or you if you’re an adult that has no children to take along.

You might get looked at strangely, but that’s okay. Just tell them you’re a child of God.

Just about everyone from Disney was there, apart from Donald Duck’s Daisy.

My favourites have to be: Rapunzel, Snow White and Aladdin.

Disney on Ice

But, then again, Lion King was cool and so was Little Mermaid.

Cinderella didn’t get her own part, but she did come out at the end of both sets.

Frozen took up most of the second part. I like Frozen, but it’s overrated. Love is an open door.

Book now.

PantenePantene Pro V

Another day, another blog! This time I’m coming at you LIVE, reviewing Pantene Pro V: Repair & Protect.

So, as you know, I applied almond oil on my hair a few days ago. Truth be told I’ve been washing my hair every day since trying to get it out of my hair entirely. This has finally done the trick, after using it once.

I used it a while back and loved it, but have since been having to use a sulfate-free one for a while. Alas, the sulfate-free ones seem to be making my scalp produce more oils than usual.

There you go, if you want a shampoo and conditioner that doesn’t dry out your hair nor make it excessively oily, use this.

My hair feels soft, and silky. Give it a go!

This shampoo is particularly great for over heat-styled or bleached hair.

Victoria Secret

Word on the streets is that Nina Simone put a spell on you… ‘A-B-C easy as 1-2-3!’ 🎵

Victoria Secret: *knock knock*

‘Mii: who’s there?

Victoria: a Secret!

‘Mii: “I’ll let you in, on a Secret!”

Hahahahahahahahahahahha! This joke that I made still makes me laugh; & MJ is innocent until the “kids” do a lie-detector test.

So, back to fragrances, my nostrils love this one. I can’t explain the scent, it’s just magical; hence the name ‘Love Spell‘.

The packaging is very amethyst-esque which is my favourite stone right now.
