Charcoal Toothbrush| Review

I was lucky enough to stumble upon B.BINCHOTAN earlier this month while I was perusing Instagram. I got in touch with their rep and was given the chance to try out their product. 

According to their website "B.binchotan is a lifestyle brand that represents the highest quality of simplistic and minimalist Binchotan charcoal products. Binchotan charcoal is an activated charcoal that is also considered to be a natural antibacterial, it has the ability to adsorb the compound and toxin called Tannin. Tannin is responsible for the stains in your teeth that are found through everyday liquids consumed by you such as coffee, tea, tobacco, wine and berry like fruits. This decreases your chances of anti fungal and will rid of any bacteria that would likely to cause bad breath".

The Right Way to Get Rid of Pesky Blemishes

Ok, so I know those extraction videos are all the rage right now, but don't worry guys I won't expose you to any videos or photo demonstrations. I read this post on Byrdie the other night which inspired me to write a bit on this matter.

Although the needle method is sterile and probably works great it's not my cup of tea. I don't really want to poke needles into my skin unless it's for a vaccine.

About a month ago I purchased an extraction tool with one of my online orders. This has honestly changed the game for me. We all know that picking at our skin is awful, it can lead to scarring, infection, and even make your spot last longer. However, this tool is gentle and doesn't squeeze your skin the same way you would with your fingers, therefore it does not push bacteria or dirt deeper into your skin.

The package says you can gently "roll away" blackheads or whiteheads. There are two ends to the tool, the flat side is for whiteheads and the side that is bent is for blackheads. I can honestly say that since I started using this tool my blemishes have cleared up much faster.

Kylie Cosmetics Gloss Review featuring The Fit Foodnista

Hello everyone! I hope you have been enjoying the beautiful weather this week. I have been finishing up my final exams and papers, as has +Rebecca, but we wanted to collaborate on another post for you guys! 

Since our first collab Becca and I have been brainstorming ideas for another, and since we both ordered from Kylie Cosmetics when the new ranges launched we thought this was perfect! If you haven't already checked out her blog I strongly suggest that you do, she's absolutely lovely and has a great variety of posts including beauty, healthy eating, and fitness. 

Here are Becca's thoughts on her Kylie purchases; 

Review| HASK Charcoal Purifying Hair Care Collection

This week I had the opportunity to review HASK's line of Charcoal Purifying Haircare Products. HASK is a brand I have mentioned on my blog before, I love their mask packets especially the Monoi Coconut Oil Deep Conditioner. The best part is, HASK is cruelty free!

When I first heard about the charcoal range of products I was a bit wary... charcoal?... in my hair? However, I have used charcoal cleansers on my skin before, and I know charcoal is wonderful for purifying. As I have said before in past haircare reviews my hair can be somewhat oily if I don't use the correct products, so I was actually really excited to try a purifying shampoo because it was a concept that I hadn't tried before.

Summer Wedding Packing Guide

This month I am fortunate enough to be traveling to Ireland for a wedding. I have not been to Ireland yet so I'm so excited to be going on this trip. As the trip is nearing I have been considering what I will be wearing on that day, I have already chosen my dress, which is pictured below, and now I am considering the details like hair and makeup.

I bought this gorgeous pastel blue skater dress for the wedding, it's not as formal as dresses I have worn for special occasions in the past but I like that I can potentially dress it down. I love the scalloped edges and the length is perfect. Unfortunately I do have to get the waist altered, but I ordered the wrong size haha.

I plan on wearing black or nude pumps to the wedding, I think nude would look better, But I plan on bringing a black cardigan, so I feel either would work.
