Monday Times - Edition #5

Oh how I had completely forgotten about Sunday Times this week!! :O How could I? Well, I moved back to uni over the weekend. It's been a bit crazy and hectic!

Things are alright, but I'm not feeling so great today and so my room is still packed and I have to unpack everything and get it all ready for my final year here... I've been in bed most of the time actually because my room is absolutely freezing!!!!! I swear there's like 3 draughts here and the heater vent thing doesn't work!! Oh noes! Gonna have to get a small electric heater thingy...

So onto fun news, I bit all my nails of last night. I couldn't sleep properly and I think I was all nervous or something. Worried maybe... but anyway, the nails are super short now. I tried to salvage a little and filed them, but some just weren't salvagable (is that even a word??) so I clipped them all off. My hands definately look like kiddie hands now XD I've applied NYC in a New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish with Minerals in 248B Manhattan which is my new favourite autumn/winter colour!! The plumy red untones gives it a warmth but its still dark enough to stay sultry and great for the colder seasons! I would describe it as a black cherry colour, and I would take a picture, but I made a mess painting my nails (think it may be the brush, or maybe my fingers are numb from the cold or something) and my camera is somewhere far away (which means, I'd have to get out of bed to search for it and get it) but its just way too cold right now!! Really not looking forward to the cold days :(

In regards to skin, I really haven't been taking any Chlorella... I tried to, but I just forget or think I'll take them later and then just don't. So things aren't happening with that. But I am going to start taking them constantly sometime this week. I shall put a daily alarm in my phone or something to remind me!

Anyway, just a little something about skincare, I've started to use the Freederm Facial Cleanser. If you haven't heard about Freederm, its a brand which manufactures a range of products specifically to target "spot-prone skin". I really like the way they used spot-prone, not acne-prone, because some people are senstive about this problem and don't like to use products for acne, even though they mean the same thing. I used to be like that, but I'm over it now :) So this facial cleanser isn't something new in my life. I had used it before for a little while and I believe it helped my skin out. And when I finished off my first bottle, I did purchase another one (the one I'm currently using). It's packaged in an opaque white plastic bottle with an opaque white plastic pump. I love the pump! It's great for dispensing just the right amount of product and there's no contamination to the unused cleanser inside. Hwowever, because you can't see through the bottle, you don't know when you're coming to the end and need to purchase another bottle, so after my first one I moved onto another cleanser instead. I believe that not quite sticking to the same product religously may have stopped any progress my skin had made, but I found this new unopened bottle the other week and decided I should start using it again.

So the cleanser itself is a daily white cream cleanser which you gently massage into dry skin using your fingertips. You can either wipe it off using cotton wool or rinse it off with warm water. I have been using this every morning, when I don't want to use water on my face and just wipe it off with a cotton pad. It has been "formulated by experts", has an "advanced pore cleansing action to combat blackheads" and is antibacterial and suitable for all skin types. The cleanser is actually very moisturising. The number one ingredient in aqua (aka water) which is great because it uses gentle cleansers to help rid the skin of spots. I really enjoy using it and think I'm hoing to target my skin by using this constantly. I normally just apply a moisturiser on top.

So in make-up news, I haven't really got a lot to say. I brought most of my make-up with me, the stuff that I use often and a few little extra special things too. Nothing major to update you on here so I shall just move on and not bore you.

Moving back to uni means I get to use all my premium products again!!!! Hehe this makes me happy ^____________^ Premium products are those that you find a little bit more expensive but very worth it and ones that you wait to use because you have so much other crappy products you want to use up first. So leaving all the crappy products back at home so I can use them up during holidays and those weekends I go back to Guildford, I have my Herbal Essences Dazzling Shine Shampoo & Conditioner!! And I'm still in love with it! The scent still could be better but I'm happy as its working for me! So I used those today to make myself feel better with a nice long hot shower! It was AWESOME!!!! Also, I brought my Chi Silk Infusion and my hair feels great!
