REVIEW | Nature Republic Blackhead Nose Patch

About the product
The patch purifies the blackhead that is made by excess sebum and dirt in pores. It helps to purify the skin, manages dead skin cells, provides nutrition, and protects skin from further damage. Improves various troubles of pores and makes look bright and clean. Deeply clean the pore and leaving your skin clearer with less visible pores with no irritation. It's suitable for all skin type but might hurt a bit if you're having a sensitive skin.
Ingrediënts
Camellia flower extract, hazel leaf water, chestnut peel extract and lavender extract but it didn't have a smell of lavender.
How to use?
The strip can be used pretty much anywhere on your face with the exception of near your eyes. I used it on my nose, which I presume most people do because that’s where people tend to have a lot of clogged pores and blackheads. The only problem with buying only one strip is that the instructions on the package aren’t very good. But you can more or less figure out how to use them, especially if you’ve used similar products.

The patch
There are two sides, one with the grey fur side, see the picture below and one with a black side. The black side is to be used on your nose. And make sure you won't let the grey fur side to be wet because it will be very sticky and the black side would not work that great anymore.
Does it work?
Well I have to say the patch is not very different from other ones, like the ones from biore wich I really loved back then but now it is not that special anymore. It does take dirt from my nose away but not really my black or white heards, only a few ones. If you're ever using this patch, only use it when you have a lot of black/white heads, it may sound a bit weird but when I had a lot of black/white heads, it removed more than that I had a few blackheads. My rating would be 3/5

Happy New Hair

So pretty for a wedding!

A new year already. Good intentions, such as weight loss and exercise more is heard of course all in after the holidays. But what about a new hairstyle? I have looked at the (expected) hair trends of 2014 for all of you and putted it together below. Happy new hair!
SOMBRE
Of course we know the Ombe hair last year. In 2014, a new variant of this look: the sombre. Sombre is a sober ombre, color transitions are less extreme, giving it a more natural look. Also, the transition is no longer dyed in a straight line.
PONY TAIL
The tight ponytail all coming back in 2014. As tight as possible to the ear and shine spray all the way! Blake Lively looks so pretty with a pony tail!
SHORT HAIR
In 2013 we have seen more and more short hairstyles with short hair cuts on the catwalk, but in 2014 this will only increase. In the streets this year will also rise more and more with a short haircut.
NATURAL COLOUR
It is finished with all the bright colors and pastel hair colors. 2014 is the year of natural hair colors, blonde, blond, brown and black.
VOLUME
A short hairstyle (bob) with many layers is totally in this year. Many volumes combined with a stylized look tousled hairstyle makes you completely ready in 2014.
WILD SIDE
Long, wild, tousled hair is a trend in 2014. Tease your hair with hairspray and backcombing creates a wild look, wild side baby!

5 Beauty Winter Tips

Hi everyone! I am so sorry for not uploading for a while, it is just I have been very busy and was enjoying my holiday. Since it is a new year, new year, new chances I will try to post more! Anyway since it is winter your skin becomes dryer, your eyes will shine less. Not surprisingly that we spend a little more time on our makeup in the winter. Read 5 Tips to shine in the winter!
1. Foundation
In the summer, you have a nice tan and often also a darker foundation. In winter, your skin will be paler so it is better to choose a tint that's a bit lighter.
2. Blush
In the summer, you only need a little bit of makeup because your skin (by the many vitamin D) by itself radiates more. In winter is it less, and your skin can appear dull. How to solve it? A little blusher on your cheeks For example, choose candy pink or orange/peach and bring it subtly.
3. Accent
In the winter the makeup can be heavier. Make your eyebrows properly dark and the eyes may require more attention.
4. Darker?
In many cases, the beauty brands come out with dark colors in the winter. This is because they adapt to the often dark winter collections from fashion labels. Not surprisingly, that you also reach for darker shades. Dark shades does not suit everyone. So first try to experimentate with the colours, for example dark coloured lips?
5. Waterproof
The winter is a synonym for rain and snow, so go buy some waterproof cosmetics.
