Lime Juice as a Toner!

Posted by Kimmy at 01:54 2 comments
So i had heard through the internet grapevine that lemon juice was a great toner. Being the all natural skincare lover i am, i went to try it out only to find lime juice in my fridge instead of lemon. Being too impatient to go out and buy lemon at the shops i settled for using the lime.

So glad i did!

For me, it has worked wonders on my skin. Ive noticed a more even skin tone, less breakouts,  smaller pores and a slight fading of my freckles! I have since replaced my old toner with just the lime juice! Cheaper and more effective then any other toner i have bought.

I just dampen a cotton pad with water and squirt on a little lime juice. Then just wipe and dab this all over the face and neck after cleansing. Some people experience stinging and so wash it off after a minute or so but i haven't experienced this yet so i just leave it on! Then follow with my coconut oil moisturiser.

Night Out Makeup

Posted by Kimmy at 06:54 1 comments
So a few nights ago was my friends Hens night. I wore some plummy red jeans and so i thought i would match my eye makeup!
This is the look i came up with, you will have to excuse the bad lighting!

I wore a cranberry and black smokey eye with thick liner and lashes and a light peachy cheek with a plummy pink lip. I quite enjoyed this look and got many compliments wearing it.

Under Eye Circles: Gone!

Posted by Kimmy at 09:11 0 comments
I've never had a problem with under eye bags. Ever. Even with lack of sleep etc I have always been pretty lucky. That is until I took a trip to America in Feb/March. After I arrived, I had dark circles and puffy eyes! I blamed the flight but they stayed until after I got back home. I was horrified lol.
I decided to attack them!

I bought Yes To Grapefruit dark circle correcting eye cream while I was in the states then while in Melbourne a few weeks back I got Lab Series power brightening eye balm. Using these 2 products together every morning I started to see a difference within a week! In the top picture (in America), you can see my puffiness and darkness and I'm wearing makeup! Bottom picture was taken the other morning, with NO makeup on at all. Such a difference hey!

I highly recommend them both!

Do you guys have any dark circle miracle products/ tips?
