Montagne Jeunesse Pore Strips Experiment


How many times have I bought a product thinking it would do exactly what it was meant to do and it failed miserably? The answer to that question I don’t even know myself. It has been a lot though. We are not very fortunate here to be able to return an item if we don’t like it. So this is where reviews come in and in my case where my experiments help me decide on future orders for new products. So introducing the Montagne Jeunesse pore strips that are supposed to remove blackheads and unclog deep pores. 
 
Purpose of experiment: To determine if the Montagne Jeuness pore strips can remove blackheads and unclog deep pores.
Tools required: My nose and one pore strip
On top: Outside of strip, On bottom: Side of strip that adheres to the nose
Nose before pore strips, with whiteheads! yuck
 Method: Basically I tried it just as they instructed! Only one mistake I applied the strip upside down! 
It’s upside down! Oopsie
 
Results: Even with my mistake, the strips worked well for me. I didn’t have blackheads but I have always been plagued with the whiteheads. Usually I just scrub them away until my nose turns red but this seems to be a better alternative for me. You can visibly see the white heads on the black strip. Now not all of the whiteheads came away onto the strip, a few remain lodged in my nose but many more were loosened and so a good washing of the face afterwards removed them for good. My nose felt very smooth to the touch! On the downside, I hated enduring the 20 minutes waiting period since the strip has an awful smell to it and strangely the strip held on so tight that I remained for a few minutes with wrinkles around the nose after the strip was removed.
 
Recommendations: Give it a try! My smooth nose says so.

Happy Makeup Experimenting!

Coffee Date Night with Bae

There are some simple pleasures in life that I enjoy. Coffee is one of them and a good lipgloss. Today I can have both of them together while we go for a date with bae! Sacha Cosmetics has blown me away with their new intense lipshine glosses and awesome names. I love when companies try to just be real with their customers even in these small details. 

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

In today's yummy post we are doing an easy sponge cake (no creaming of butter and sugar involved). Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.
