Argan Oil Benefits

For those of you who know me you know I am a big fan of Face and Body Oils.  I used to snarl at the idea of using Oil, why would I want my skin greasy? Well I couldn’t be more wrong and I am glad I tried it. The first time I bought Oil it was for my stretch marks, then soon after I ended up trying it on my face and neck. Then became the fascination and I began trying so many different oils, comparing many.

Over time I am sure I will be sharing different opinions on oils but today I wanted to focus on one of my favourites Argan Oil.

After seeing one of my tweets, The Body Source contacted me and asked if I would happily share a tip on Argan Oil.  I am always sharing tips and tricks to people whenever I can so this was no different. They kindly shared my tip on their website under the article ’20 Effective and Essential Argan Oil Benefits and Tips from the UK’s Leading Beauty Bloggers’. Firstly WOW, they think I am one of the UK’s Leading Beauty Bloggers?!! *Excuse me while I fall off my chair* WOW, I am totally overwhelmed to be included in that category, I feel so honoured. If you’re reading this Body Source, Thank you 🙂 You can read my tip by clicking here

After they posted my tip, they contacted me for my address and as a Thank you, they gifted me with their own natural Moroccan Oil! I was completely over the moon, the bottle came with a little Thank you note. Again I was so overwhelmed and thankful. So here’s what they sent me:

Guess what guys? There also gave me a code for 20% off if you guys fancy trying it!! The code is: lovearganoil20xo

Now lets talk Argan Oil and why I like it so much!

Moroccan Argan Oil smells natural, almost like wood. The oil comes from Northern Africa Tree Nuts- hence the smell!!  It doesn’t sound a pleasant smell but trust me it is.

Argan Oil is perfect for hydrating, it penetrates the epidermis layer of your skin much quicker than any other oil. Unlike most oils that sit on the skin until they are absorbed, it wont be long before your dry with this one! Meaning its great for using in the morning too as it wont affect your makeup or rub on your clothes, now that’s a bonus for me!

I apply the oil onto my face and neck every evening, I have been using the Body Source one in particular for two weeks now as its brilliant for Anti Ageing. The tip I shared with the Body Source was that I like to add drops of Lavender into the oil and apply to my face and chest. I suffer with anxiety and some evenings I really struggle to switch off and calm down. Lavender is known for its calming properties and with Argan Oil being known as a Carrier Oil it means its a brilliant combination. I sleep better and wake up radiant and glowing, whats not to love?!

So what other things can it do?:

  • Moisture cuticles and strengthen nails
  • Help soothe skin with rashes or razor burn
  • Hydrate and keep your hair shiny
  • Helps Scars as it encourages Cell Growth
  • Anti Inflammatory

So why not put your expensive night cream to aside and give this oil a try. I doubt you will regret it and I think it might just save you money!

Noughty intestive Car Leave in Conditioner

Noughty or nice?


Like most people I have a little wild side but when it comes to my hair that’s just not an option!!! It’s out with lion tresses and in with the silky rapunzel locks. My wavy hair is often frizzy and a little on the dry side and recently it’s been feeling worse so it definitely needs a little TLC.

When I received the June Glossybox I will be honest my heart sank a little when I saw ‘leave in conditioner’ I went back to a child remembering the leave in conditioner that left your hair greasy and full of product, lasting 24 hours before the need to rewash took over.

The lavender coloured tube named Noughty is an intensive conditioner boasting 97% of natural ingredients such as Argan Oil and Shea butter. It’s vegan AND paraben, silicone, sulphate and petrochemical FREE! No Nasties! The remaining 3% if the ingredients is made up of the preservative system, which stops the product from going off after opening.


As much as the free from noughties and natural ingredients excite me, I must admit it also made me a little nervous. How will it stop frizz? Am I going to be greasy? and is it going to make styling difficult? Is it worth this stress?

When I finally took the plunge I towel dried my hair and split my hair into two sections as it’s rather thick. I then massaged a teaspoon amount in each section throughout my hair from about 2 inches of my roots down. I put most of it on the ends and the ends of my layers throughout. The amount you put on will depend on the thickness of your hair so don’t go by these recommendations only what you would normally use and remember no washing out!


After about 10 minutes of letting my hair naturally dry, I found that my tangle brush glided well through my hair. I used my hairdryer and paddle brush together to help against frizz.

Once my hair was dry, I just sat staring in the mirror and glided my fingers through my hair. I was overwhelmed at the result, my hair was soft, shiny and looked healthy as though I had been the hairdressers. Very impressed! But the test was not over, here comes the styling!
Splitting my hair in sections, I curled them with my ghd straightners, they curled well and there was no need to go over any areas. I separated each curl gently and finished with tresseme hairspray. There were no problems or fussiness instead my hair looked glossy, bouncy and healthy.

I knew the conditioner had made a difference when my boyfriend admired how nice my hair looked and asked if I had used anything different!

*Below is what my hair looked like after styling!*

This intensive treatment has completely changed my opinion on leave in conditioners. I have been using it every time I wash my hair and I am quite sure that when it runs out, I will be in my local Boots/Superdrug buying more! Plus it’s only £6.99!! In my opinion it’s something everyone should try a little of, you may be like me and it may just change your mind.

My first impressions of Dollibox

img_7247
I am huge fan of subscription boxes and have been a loyal customer of Glossybox for about 5 years now! I love receiving monthly gifts to myself to try. It’s a perfect way of trying things you wouldn’t normally and discovering new brands. Some of my favourite brands and products I discovered through Glossybox. 
There are so many subscription boxes available now and they extend on from just beauty. There’s something for everyone. I have been on the lookout to try another box, after looking around, I found a lot of people were ‘raving’ about Dollibox, I’ve heard of it but never really looked into it until now. I contacted Dollibox directly and asked if they would be interested in a Collaboration, they offered me
a discount on the box if I wanted to try it out. I was over the moon and I couldn’t say no. 
I had been advised that my box would arrive around the 10th June. I was expecting delivery mon-fri like my Glossybox so I had in my head it was likely to be Monday 12th at the earliest. But when I returned home I saw a little ‘love note’ from the delivery man advising it was left in a safe place. Holding the box in my hand I couldn’t believe it had arrived on a Saturday and I was absolutely over the moon. It literally made my day! 
img_7233
The box is about half the size of Glossybox but all the products fit in perfectly. There was a little leaflet inside that told us what products were included, the prices and ingredients. I am so impressed with what I received, I loved every single product. I think this can be hard to say about some boxes but Dollibox was even better than my expectations! 
Have a look at what I received: 
img_7237
My favourite product in there has to be the mermaid makeup brush it’s so beautiful and the brissels are soft on your skin 😊
Pro Range Mermaid Makeup Brush- £29.99 for set of 10 brushes! No doubt this has made it onto my wish list!
Pura Cosmetics Lip Balm– £2.50 
I can’t get enough of this! It smells amazing and if you happen to lick it by accident it actually quite tasty! This cute balm is made from all natural ingredients and is 100% cruelty free 🙌
Another yummy smelling product I got was a Raspberry Jam Donut smelling Wax Melt. It smells exactly like Raspberry Jam!! It’s unbelievable. I currently don’t have a wax burner but I have already seen one for £5 that I will be picking up 😊 this wax melt is only £1.30 by the Wax Melt Bakery in South Wales. One again this product is 100% Cruelty free and vegan! They have some amazing ones on their Instagram including glittery ones, so don’t forget to check them out 😊
Palmers Coco Butter Eventone Sun Lotion £9.99 
I have been a huge fan of cocoa butter for a long time and I can always count on their products to do exactly what ‘it says on the tin’ their body lotions and tan are always in my house so I was excited to receive this little addition. The ‘Palmers cocoa butter smell’ is there as you would expect and the cream is just like the cosy lotion in consistency, it’s thick but rubs in well. With added ingredients of shea butter and coconut oil it helps guard against the suns damaging effects to maintain a youthful, even skin tone. I have used this all weekend as the sun has been so hot. 
Popfeel Concealer £2.79
Lightweight and silky, this is a Concealer to cover everything from pores to bags. There are 11 different shades so there’s something for everyone! The shade I received is the perfect colour for my skin, it blends in well and doesn’t flake off after several hours.
Seacret Hand Lotion £29.99
This came as a travel size which fits perfectly in any handbag. This product boasts in natural ingredients. Featuring orange oil, sunflower oil, cocoa and shea butter, Dead Sea minerals and vitamins A&E it all aids in super soft hands! 
I was so impressed with this box that I have signed up for a box per month, It’s £13.00 including delivery.  Currently I have 9 days till the next delivery and I literally cant wait!

Is Activated Charcoal any good? And what for?

IMG_6718
Why is everyone raving about Charcoal?
Don’t get confused it’s not the same Charcoal you would put on the BBQ! Avoid those, they’re full of toxins! What I’m talking about is Activated Charcoal!
What is Activated Charcoal? 
It is a form of carbon that is formed to have small pores that can increase adsorption.
It’s a natural treatment people use to adsorb toxins and chemicals and flush them naturally out of the body. It’s often used as treatments for drug overdoses or poisoning.
For the Skin:
Today I tried a Charcoal scrub that came with my Glossybox this month. These dark grey granules turn darker as they are rubbed into your skin with water. It turned the water on my skin black and he granules were a lot more rough than I had thought. But it certainly felt like I was giving myself a good scrub. It was exceptionally messy and did get everywhere in the shower but it’s no problem as you just wash it all off and down the cubicle. Watching the black Charcoal and water go down the plug made me feel cleaner already. My skin felt amazing which is exactly what anyone would want from a scrub. Once dry, my skin is now still silky smooth, it feels like a fresh layer of skin! I’m impressed!!
 IMG_6720
For the Face:
It’s recommended for acne and problem skin. Like most people I have blackheads and notice that the Charcoal pore strips are much better. I use them on my nose and chin! The face washes are particularly good as they
For your Teeth:
It’s come alight that Charcoal is meant to whiten your teeth but does it really work? I have been using Just Smile activated charcoal powder, twice a day for 8 days now.  I am a huge fan of white teeth and teeth whitening. I usually use whitening strips but I have been desperate to find something more organic and natural. No nasties! My teeth aren’t really stained however I have two teeth on my lower set at the front that always stain and there the ones you can notice, they’re the ones I need to particularly focus on! The idea of Activated Charcoal powder is that you wet your toothbrush and pick up the powder in the pot with the wet toothbrush, you should brush your teeth for 2-3 minutes and rinse. Like all Charcoal products it can be pretty messy so avoid wearing white!! But it will wash away from the sink easily so don’t worry. You do have to wash your mouth out several times as the Charcoal stays around your gum lines an tongue! A thorough cleanse is needed!
 I have noticed a difference in my teeth in just 8 days, although not as dramatic as maybe I had wanted, but it does work! I will still keep using it daily, I love how much you get and for the price. It’s a bargain and It’s natural, so it’s a winner for me! Here’s my before and after pictures, picture on the left is day 1 and right pic is day 8:
IMG_6722
If you want to try this you can use my code ANASTASIA10 for 10% off Just Smile and can be pricked by clicking here 
IMG_6723
Please note this powder must not substitute brushing your teeth! You must still brush your teeth twice a day and make sure your toothpaste has 1350-1500ppm of Fluoride as this helps against tooth decay.  
For the Body:
A few years ago I tried Charcoal Tablets. The reason I decided to give them a whirl is because I suffer with IBS and at the time it was really angry. I had heard that it would help eliminate the toxins in your body that would cause bloating and gas.  However I didn’t feel that it worked as well as I had hoped so naturally I swapped it for peppermint tea which I feel is much better for me.
There are some medical people that have advised that people taking medication should avoid using the charcoal tablets. The reason being is that Charcoal will adsorb things so it is likely it will make your medication less likely to work.
I really hope you guys enjoyed this post and have a bit more knowledge about Activated Charcoal.

A Collaboration with Treat yourself Boutique

IMG_6601.JPG

Hi everyone!

Today I’m writing all about a new boutique that is Vegan and Cruelty Free. They sell a range of items from makeup, clothing and home decor. The boutique’s owner is half Thai so you will see some influences in their products. I was sent goodies from the owner as she interested in my thoughts on her products. I have provided the boutique with my honest opinions and as I was so impressed by some of the products I just wanted to share my favourite items with you all. The boutique is called Treat yourself Boutique and you can visit the sit by clicking here. The owner of the company is so friendly, it is always a pleasure to chat to her. You can see how passionate she is about her boutique which makes it so worthwhile for me. I asked her if she would be happy to answer a few questions so you can all get to know her a bit. I will firstly show you some of my favourite items.

Here are some of my favourite products:

They have such a range of different glitters which can be applied on your eyes or lips, its perfect for the Summer and a must have Festival accessory. I used the ‘Wet n Wild’ lipgloss they sell and gently patted the glitter onto my lips. This is one of my favourites on my lips:

The Lip pencils and Wet n Wild lipsticks are now in my makeup bag. I have worn them a few times whilst being out and they last for over 10 hours. I can eat and drink as much as I want and it doesn’t smudge or budge! They are a must have! The picture below shows Tru Lips Lip Pencils, a Wet n Wild Lipstick & Flower Candles, please not the notebook is my own:

Q & A

– How did ‘Treat Yourself Boutique’ start? 

I’ve always liked the idea of having my own shop or website so I had left a career that I was in for so long last year that now seemed like the perfect time. There was a lot of research and decisions and planning but in the end, I just thought no time like the present and designed a website.  It’s a learning curve and still in the early stages so the brand will change over time but if I don’t do it, I’ll regret it.

– What is your inspiration?

I would say that there are 2 things that have inspired me.  The first is my heritage.  I am half Thai but brought up in England so I have had the best of both worlds whilst I was growing up.  A lot of people who get into conversation with me will say oh I love Thailand, I love the food, the people, the clothing etc.  Thai food is easy to find here, it’s the clothing that isn’t.  My particular taste in clothes definitely has a Thai influence and given that I wouldn’t sell anything that I wouldn’t use myself, you will find that a lot of the clothing that I sell will have a Thai influence running through it.

My other influence is actually my house bunny!  I was watching a video online and it was showing a makeup brand testing their products on rabbits.  I did a bit of research and most of the brands that you would think of using for your make – up aren’t cruelty free.

– what makes if different from anyone else?

I am sick of seeing the same type of clothing and the same brands everywhere that I shop.  Treat Yourself Boutique is committed to smaller brands and one off pieces that you won’t find in other shops.  A lot of the products that are listed are bought in smaller amounts so that not everyone has the same thing.  Once they are gone, they won’t be reordered and something else will take its place.  As stated before as well, a lot of the products will have an Asian influence to them.

There is a long process to go through before anything is listed in the store.  Each potential brand is researched to ensure that they are vegan friendly and cruelty free.  A sample is then ordered and tested either by myself or my friends and then sent off to bloggers like yourself who I can trust to give me an honest opinion.  After that, it is listed on the website for sale.  If at any point through this process, it does not meet someone’s expectations, it simply does not get sold.

– If you had any advice for someone looking to start their own business, what would it be?

Go for it.  It’s difficult and time consuming but so rewarding.  You have to be organized, able to budget, creative and have the time and patience to get the right product but when you see your customers wearing your products and loving them, then you know you’ve made someone happy.  There’s nothing worse than going out and not having the right lip gloss or dress that you really want!

– Do you have a favourite quote or a quote that you live by? 

My favourite quote is probably that dreams and dedication are a powerful combination.  I am a strong believer that if you put your mind to something and you have enough dedication, you can do anything that you want.

I hope you all enjoyed reading this post 🙂

Boutique of Molly

Good Afternoon beautiful people!

Today i’m writing my first Outfit Of The Day post and I really hope you like it, its something I have wanted to do for a while so when I bought my new dress from Boutique of Molly with a little discount from them, I thought why not do my first outfit of the day post along with a Q&A with the company. 

I will be completely honest, I asked my family and boyfriend to take some pictures outside, and after several attempts it generally just wasn’t working. There’s no way of sugar coating it, I just looked awful and I don’t think I was doing the dress any justice! So I took some photos myself.

Outfit of the Day:

IMG_6527 (1).JPG

IMG_6560

The back of this dress has a slit so when you walk it shows a little bit of leg!

IMG_6559.JPG

This dress is called APRIL’ from Boutique of Molly and priced at £29.95. If you fancy buying anything, make sure you use my code   XOXO20 for 20% off your order.

Perfect for: Brunch with the girls, dinner with your boyfriend and an essential dress for every holiday.

Pair with: A cute pair of heels & delicate accessories. The dress is bold and makes a statement on its own.

Q&A time with Boutique of Molly

As I decided to collaborate with the company I was curious about them, who they are and what makes them different. When I approached them and asked if I could ask them a few questions so myself and you guys could get to know them, they were more than happy to answer my questions. You can see the Q&A below:

Q1. How did Boutique of Molly start?BOM started to try and make their stamp in the fashion industry.

Q2. What was your inspiration for the brand?We try to offer a range of celebrity inspired products at a high quality yet affordable prices with a hint of our own pretty style too.

– We have also recently tried to break into the handbag industry. This includes trying to offer men an option on our site with our luggage holdalls. So they can be involved with BOM too! It also offers women to shop for themselves yet surprise their other halves with a matching holdall to their new handbag.

Q3. What makes your brand different?- We believe we offer a pretty style with more statement pieces than simple pieces.

Q4. If you had any advice for anyone what would it be? Our advice to open your own business is to follow your dreams and don’t let anybody tell you you can’t. Don’t give up!

Q5. Do you have a favourite quote or a quote you live by?A favourite quote, would be Follow Your Dreams and Never Give Up

IMG_6525

My experience of working with Boutique of Molly

I have a very positive experience, a lot of my communications with the company was done through twitter however this meant that I always got a reply regardless of what time of the day it was. The person that I spoke to was exceptionally friendly and helpful. I generally cannot fault the customer service I received.  The dress was neatly folded and posted in a pink parcel which happens to be my favourite colour! 

The dress itself is a thick stretchy material, there is no zip or buttons so it is a case of either popping it over your head or stepping into it. For me its all about stepping in! The dress felt very comfortable and despite my larger chest size, the dress sat perfectly. I have often had problems with dresses where they fit everywhere but then in the chest it is too small. In this dress, I simply had no problems. Horray!

Sudacrem for Spots!

IMG_6511.JPG

Picture taken the morning after a Sudacrem mask.

I know it’s not the most glamorous of items but in my opinion you would be pretty silly not to have this in your home.

It’s not just for children and nappy rash. It has so many different uses. My favourite thing is a Sudacrem face mask. So your sitting there thinking why on earth would you want to put nappy rash cream all over your face for? Well i’m sitting here thinking- why aren’t you?

When I wake up with a spot, I cleanse my face and put Sudacrem on the spot straight away. It reduces redness and will be half the size and barely visible when you wake up the next day. But if I am going to apply to the spot, I may as well do a Sudacrem face mask.

There is an ingredient in Sudacrem called Benzyl alcohol that has antiseptic properties and helps to reduce discomfort and redness. I can’t say if this works for acne as I have never had it before but my suggestion would be to try it.

Why a Sudacrem Face Mask?

Trust me, if this isn’t part of your skin routine it should be. I do a sudacrem face mask at least once or twice a week. I particularly like using it when i’m hormonal. My skin starts to get irritated and I can see and feel spots coming up. Once I have throughly cleansed my face I will then apply a layer of sudacrem all over my face (except for my eyelids and lips) and leave on overnight. You will look like a ghost and it will be on your pillow but the next day you will have clear, soft skin.

But how?

The ingredients in Sudacrem help to soothe and heal the skin whilst protecting it against any further infection by acting like a barrier cream.  The antiseptic and antioxidant properties reduce redness and dry out any spots.

Other benefits:

  • Heals cuts and burns
  • Stops chafing!- yes there’s our summer covered
  • Soothes sore skin and helps with eczema 
  • Helps insect bites
  • Great for sunburn and prickly heat

IMG_6515.JPG

What’s not to love?

I will be honest here, anything I have whether it be a rash, burn or pimple I always use Sudacrem on it. It’s the best thing out there. Its easily accessible in shops, its so cheap and a little goes a long way!

I hope you guys enjoyed reading about my Sudacrem obsession and I really hope you try it.

Benefits of Drinking Tea


There’s not that many people I know that doesn’t enjoy a good cup of Tea and honestly who wouldn’t? As it’s National Tea day today I did some research on the benefits of drinking Tea and was quite surprised at some of the things mentioned, hence the reason I am writing this post. 

10 Facts about Tea

Did you know? 

1. Tea is a natural source of fluoride that can help protect against tooth decay and gum disease.

2. 98% of people take their tea with milk, but only 30% take sugar in tea.

3. You should use fresh water to make tea. Water that’s already been boiled, has lost oxygen which can make your tea taste flat. 

4. Black Tea reduces eye puffiness. Put 2 tea bags in boiling water for 5 mins then take out and squeeze out the liquid then and allow to cool, lastly place the bags on your eyes for 10 minutes. 

5. Slurping aerated the Tea increasing flavours allowing for greater contact with your tastebuds! One Tea in particular called Pu-erh Tea is meant to be slurped. I’m really not sure I could, the noise just goes through me. I always thought slurping was seen as rude. Did anyone else think that? 

6. Most of us are aware of how healthy green teas are as they aid many of our diets. However did you know that’s black tea also contain high levels of antioxidants. In particular black tea contains polyphenols, which can help our bodies fight cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other illnesses.

7. It’s not as bad for you as coffee. It contains half the amount of caffeine but lots of antioxidants therefore you want experience the highs and lows like you would with coffee. 

8. It takes 2,000 tiny leaves to create just one pound of finished tea. 

9. Timing is everything- Brewing time should be 3-5 minutes

10. The most expensive teabag in the world is a handcrafted diamond teabag made by Boodles jewelers worth $15,250, which contains 280 diamonds and is being used to raise money for a children’s charity in Manchester, England.

The quickest way to get your Blonde hair from Brassy to Sassy! 💁🏼

I’m finally getting my roots done and a trim tomorrow after 4 months of it last being done. As you know you should touch up highlights every 6-8 weeks to keep it fresh and avoid those scary roots creeping through. So I know your sitting there thinking how on earth did she manage to make it last 4 months, surely she’s exaggerating. I can say I am 100% not as I have had the same hairdresser for about 12 years and even though I have moved to Kent, I wait till I visit home before I get my hair done. Yes I have trust issues, but so would you if you have had some dodgy hair before finding your favourite hairdresser! 
So I thought I would share today with you my secrets of keeping my hair looking full of life and sassy. 

What you need: 
1. Provoke touch of silver intensive Shampoo and Conditioner

2. Paint brush and bowl (optional)

3. Heat protector Spray


Being blonde and having highlights means that your hair will literally go yellow after a while as all the brassiness starts to show. So I picked up so brightening shampoo and conditioner from my nearest pound land/ home and bargains. I paid about £1.99 for Provoke Touch of Silver Intensive shampoo and £1.99 for the Provoke touch of silver conditioner. In total it cost £3! 
Now I tried it both ways. Firstly I tried a few washes in the shower which did lighten my hair but as time went on and as I have thick hair I noticed a lot of brassiness showing through so I discovered something even better.

I sat on the floor with a towel over my shoulders, poured a quarter of the shampoo into a mug and used a paintbrush to go through sections of my hair whilst my hair was dry. How long you leave it for is how much you want it to lift. It works like a toner! I left it for 10 minutes as I defiantly had some yellow going on at the sides. 


I then washed it out and shampooed it with the touch of silver and a different shampoo which was keratin based and followed it with Provoke intensive conditioner for about 3 minutes before washing. 

When your hair is wet I think it’s important to towel dry it before you start blasting heat onto it, as I can just dry your hair up. When my hair was towel dry, I brushed through my hair with a detangler as they are much more gentle than a brush and you won’t pull as much hair out! Before you dry your hair spray on a good heat protector spray, my favourite is by Paul Mitchell and has lasted a long time! 

Another tip would be to gently curl the ends or odd strands to naturally lift your hair and give it some natural bounce. 

After all the tips above this is what my hair looked like straight after: 


I hope this post was useful for you Blondies out there! Remember stay Sassy and never Brassy! 💁🏼
