Montagne Jeunesse 'Mud Pac' review

Hello everyone! I am going to be reviewing a 'Mud Pac' face mask from Montagne Jeunesse. I'll start off by saying I have used many different face masks from Montagne Jeunesse and have loved every single one. However, up until now I have never tried their Mud Pac's.

[Pictures above: Left: what the packet looks like. Right: what the product looks like when taken out of the packet.]

The face mask itself is extremely simple to use.
Cleanse face with warm water only. Apply evenly over face and neck with fingertips, avoiding eyes and lips. Lie back & relax for 10-15 minutes, or until dry. Rinse off with warm water. Pat dry.
It it a blue/green in colour and smells quite pleasant and once dried will go a white colour. In the packet there is so much product so it allows you to have an extremely pleasant amount on your face (me and my mum actually shared a packet once!). The photo's below will show what it looks like on (excuse the state of my face).

After around 20 minutes, the product will be completely dry and will be able to washed off. This product is extremely easy to come off as I only used warm water to get it off. After taking the mask off my skin felt refreshed and smooth and I will definitely be using a mud pac again!

The mud pac's can be bought from most places such as boots etc or off Montage Jeunesse's actual website (I got mine in wilkinsons for 99p!).

Have a brilliant day!

My July Wishlist!

Models own pastel nail varnish: I haven't bought a new nail varnish in ages and have had my eye on models own for a long time but haven't actually bought one. The pastel colours are my favourite at the moment and the one pictured is a lovely shade. However, I'm not too fussy about what colour as long as it is pastel as I want them all!

Barry M nude lipstick: I've wanted a nude lipstick for a while now but because I never wear lipstick I've always put it off. I've decided to get a nude lipstick as I love how it looks at as I'm quite pale it will suit my skin tone. I've decided to get Barry M lipstick as they are such a good brand and always reasonable with prices!

Carmex lip care: I always carry lip balm (generally Aloe Vera Vaseline) and I have tried so many. I've seen carmex lip balm a couple of times now on different peoples blog recommending it and I definitely want to try it myself. Plus it's cherry which is an added bonus as normally the ones I have are plain scented.

Nail art pens: I've always loved painting my nails since I was little and have always liked experimenting with new colours/designs etc. Recently I've because a lot more aware of different nail art designs and without having nail art pens they are extremely hard to do so I am definitely going to buy myself some!

Aloe Vera Vaseline moisturiser: Aloe Vera is one of my favourite things ever! Generally everything I buy in which they sell in Aloe Vera I get. I always find Aloe Vera so soothing and as soon as I saw this advertise I knew I had to buy it! I use the Aloe Vera Vaseline lip balm which I love and therefore I was expecting great things from this. As soon as I used this moisturiser (mostly on my face) I felt refreshed as it gives you and extremely soothing feeling. I've ran out of this and cannot wait to buy some more!

So this is my July wishlist so far, knowing me I'll probably add lots more things to it when July actually arrives!

Have a brilliant day!

My Kukee Jewellery

The first time I heard about Kukee was on twitter and then I gradually saw it mentioned on many different blogs. After browsing their website I decided that I definitely needed to buy a few bits for myself!

One of my favourite things about Kukee was that it is SO CHEAP! both of these rings together only cost me £2.50 (what a bargin!)

The two items I decided to get were an over the knuckle ring (it was gold but i'll explain later on) and a gold cross ring which are both pictured below. The first thing I liked about the over the knuckle ring was the fact it was different as it didn't sit like normal rings and I had seen that many different bloggers had purchased one and I loved the look! As all of the other rings I where are gold I decided to get both of the rings in gold. The second ring I ordered was a cross ring as I just really liked it. 

(Left: over the knuckle ring. Right: cross ring.)

The picture above is how the rings look when they are being worn.

Now for the bad points...

Unfortunately, when I received the rings, the cross ring was actually completely broken and as it was the first time I have ordered from Kukee I was extremely disappointed. However, I contacted them and they replied straight away saying how sorry they were and they would send one out straight away so I received a brand new one the NEXT day! (Amazing customer service!).

As I know had both rings, I wore them both and only from about 2pm till 4pm and my fingers had turned completely green. I did expect this as it obviously isn't real gold but I didn't expect it to turn green so quick. Due to this, the inside of the cross ring is now a black colour (horrible) and the over the knuckle ring has gone silver (you can see this by the first picture at the top of the post). I won't wear things rings now as they look so cheap as the colour has come off. What a shame!

Let me know about your Kukee experience!

Have a brilliant day!

Half and half nails!

I thought i'd do my first ever post on one of my favourites things to do: paint my nails! For this look I used:

Barry M nail varnish- blueberry
Barry M nail varnish - berry

I started off by painting one side of my nails blue using the blueberry nail polish, once this was dry, I put little bits of Sellotape on the blue sides so even if I made the purple a bit messy it would come off. Once the purple was dry I took off the Sellotape and this was the final look! I'm super happy about how it turned out (it's looks better in real life).

Have you tried this look? Let me know by commenting!

Have a great day :)
