What your skin needs right now| Procoal

I’m a big fan of face masks. There’s something so relaxing about having one that I always make sure I add it to my skincare routine on weekends, to properly end the working week.

After the wedding party in Portugal (there’s a post coming soon about it), I came back with an allergy on my skin face which I believe it was due to all the makeup I wore on those days. My skin is just not used to wearing makeup and because it was a different country, the water I used and products to remove it were different, so I’m guessing it all had a bit of influence and the results weren’t very good.

To make sure my skin was back in shape, as soon as I got back to England I made sure I picked a nice purifying sheet mask. Something natural and smooth to my skin.

And that’s when I tried Procoal Instaclear Control sheet mask that contains botanical extracts that have the benefits of salicylic acid such as exfoliation, and anti-microbial action, without irritating the skin, which is something I really had to avoid. It’s free from parabens, silicones, SLS, mineral oils and paraffin.

So after I cleaned and dried my face, I placed the mask carefully positioned around nose, eye and mouth. I left it for 20 minutes and after removing it, I gently massaged my face until any remaining essence was fully absorbed. I didn’t rinse it afterwards because it just got absorbed.

I could feel a great sensation on my skin straight away, it was softer and smoother. I continued with my daily skincare routine and three days later all the blemishes on my skin were gone and I was so glad my healthy skin was back!

Time for another hairstyle?

I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed with my hair and I spend half of my day looking at it in the mirror or I spend hours getting it right before leaving the house. I know people who do this and I’m definitely not one of them.

But I do like to take care of my hair and when you have curls you either accept the challenge or you’ll be looking like a mess.

I’ve shared many tips on how to keep a healthy hair previously in the blog. Applying coconut oil hours before the washing, beer hair masks, applying Apple cider vinegar after washing your hair for awesome curls to pop out, avoiding washing your hair too often and start using dry shampoo more often (here’s a really good guide on the best dry shampoo)… and the list goes on… you can check these posts under the Beauty section of the blog.

Now it’s my turn to ask for advice. I’m looking to change my hairstyle once again and I’m open for suggestions. I had highlights, fringe, short, long hair… but I’m looking for something different and I want to do it in the next few months, so feel free to leave a comment below with your suggestion and keep an eye on Instagram for the big change

Anatomicals| We Only Want You For Your Body

First post of the year!

Everyone is back at work and Christmas stress is history, but we’re still recovering, our skin is still recovering… and that’s why I had the opportunity to test a few products from Anatomicals, the brand that only wants you for your body. 

Besides their packaging designs with cheeky messages, they have an entire range of products that make you feel great and are not animal tested!

In a month I’ve tried 3 different face masks:


Farewell the scarlet pimplehell – a deep cleansing mud mask for your face. Great to clear the pores and helps with acne scars. A bit itchy after 5 minutes of applying it, but then I got used to it and left my skin extremely soft, even the following day.


No breakouts, it’s Alcatraz for spots – a purifying charcoal mask. This was my favourite, even thought it was itchy the moment I started applying it. I’ve used it on the 1st of January, after wearing make up for an entire night (NYE) and it did miracles with my skin.

That’s what we call stung – a skin boosting honey mask. You know how they say honey helps with everything? It really does. I’ve tried this one with my mom and sister. We all have different types of skin, but we all felt the benefits. It leaves a slight yellow colour in the skin, but you can remove it with micellar water or any makeup remover.


I’ve also tried the Smother Superior Nun Better Body Butter, an amazing bergamot and green ginger body butter that makes you feel like you’re floating up in the clouds after every shower. It left my skin very soft and smooth.

I was also the lucky winner of Anatomicals Christmas Giveaway and I got the Let the Gels Ring Out for Christmas. A set of shower gel-filled festive baubles! Inside their casings I found a zesty orange and clove shower gel – a spicy and citrus blend that I’m still using for my showers.IMG_7893

 I must say I have a crush on these products since day one and even Olivia was curious about them as you can see in the picture. Now it’s time you give them a try too! http://www.anatomicals.net/
