Formula 10.0.6 | Review

Formula 10.0.6 is one of my all time favourite skincare brands. 
They use natural ingredients in all the products which is great for all skin types including sensitive skin. Their products not only work amazingly but smell amazingly too! 
I currently own 2 face masks and a blemish cream which I have reviewed below but I would love to try all their other products as I'm sure they'll be as great as these ones.
My first ever Formula 10.0.6 product was the Rescue Me! Acne Blemish Treatment.
Being a teenager, I deal with blemishes on a daily basis. I've tried many different blemish creams and cleansers and I have to say this is one of the best! I find it targets the pimple straight away and after a few days to a week I can really notice the changes. I believe that if you're trying to find an instant pimple removing cream, you're dreaming. This is the closest thing you have to a miracle. A few of my friends have complained that the scent isn't that pleasant but it doesn't phase me. A blemish cream is something you usually use at night so the scent isn't going to affect anyone but yourself. It's not a bad scent it just isn't a flowery, tropical scent. Just something to keep in mind.
Deep Down Detox Ultra-Cleansing Mud Mask Orange + Bergamot
Now this is a scent you cannot refuse. It literally smells like someone has zested an orange and compiled it into mask form. I've tried a lot of mud masks that smell musky, dry and just unpleasant but definitely not this one!
The product itself is AMAZING. It's a cleansing and brightening mask that makes your skin feel super smooth. I use it 1-2 times a week depending on how good my skin is and I've really noticed a difference in the amount of breakouts I've had after using this product. I've read other reviews that say it burns their skin but I believe if you only apply a thin layer, you can feel the product drying and hardening around your skin but never burning. After washing it off, your skin feels silky smooth and clean of impurities! Would highly recommend this to people who are prone to breakouts!
Keep Your Cool Breakout Calming Mask Peppermint + Coconut
This is my favourite product out of the three that I own. There's nothing worse than a bright red pimple in the middle of your forehead. This product completely calms those pesky blemishes in an instant. By instant I mean about 4-6 hours but that's pretty damn good if you ask me. The mask itself feels so refreshing and light on your face and it's active ingredients really work on your breakouts. The good thing about this mask is that it's so thin that it will melt into your skin so you don't have to wash it off. This product has been a life saver in many occasions!

Formula 10.0.6 is available from Priceline, Target or Big W in Australia at very low prices. 
They sell a whole range of skincare products including masks, blemish creams, 
facial wipes and cleansers. 
They are all made of natural ingredients and work tremendously. 
Definitely recommend giving this brand a try!

Where have you been? | Life Update

Hello everyone, I'm back!!
Sorry I disappeared from the face of the earth for a while. 
This past month has been exceedingly busy so here's a little life update on what I've been up to.

School Production Rehearsals
So my school is doing FAME the musical as their production this year! For those of you who don't know it's basically about a group of students in a performing arts school who have to rise to a series of various challenges that they encounter along the way.

Back in late February we had a full day of auditions where we all had to sing, dance and act our little hearts out in hope of getting a role. I was lucky enough to receive the role of Iris Kelly who is the 'best dancer' in the school! I was so overwhelmed as I've never been cast as a lead so this was a big step out of my comfort zone.

Since February, I've been dancing and singing at least twice a week in rehearsals and running over lines in my spare time. It's been pretty hectic but heaps of fun! There's something so joyous about being a different person for a while. The show is in about a month so I'm going to be super busy going over everything until it's perfect!!

Exams
Onto some less exciting news. Those dreaded mid-year exams came waaaay too quickly for my liking. Studying is my least favourite thing to do ever :( But hard work does lead to success so I just had to suck it up and get into the books. On the plus side, I got many days off to 'study' aka watch every TV series ever and eat everything!!
Party and Party and Yeah + work
Lots of my friends are May babies so I had a gathering nearly every weekend! They were pretty casual so I didn't take any photos for GRWM posts but there will be many more to come! Along with the parties came the reality of work. This took up majority of my weekends so I had no time to blog or do anything for myself for that matter.

Me Time
Speaking of doing things for myself, I've spent a lot of time lately, thinking about what I want to do with my life. At the moment I have absolutely no idea but I do know it has to be something I love.
So far this year, I spent way too much time obsessing about other people and not so much on myself. That way sound very vain and selfish but you need to love yourself before you are able to love others.

In the month of June I'm making it my goal to do more things that make me happy such as pamper nights and baking. Of course I'm still going to obsess over my friends lives and care about their problems all the same but I'm also going to make sure I have enough 'me time'.
If you are reading this, make it your goal too that this month you do more for you :)
So life hasn't been that exciting but at least it's kept me busy. I'd love to hear about exciting things happening in your lives so leave them in the comments!
Hope you enjoyed this little update and that you're having a great day :)

Follow me on Instagram !

Hey everyone!
 As you may or may not know, this blog has it's very own Instagram!
In the beginning I rarely used it but now I've started to post quite regularly so it would be great if you could give it a follow! It's a really great way to communicate with me as well as find out what I'm doing and what products I'm liking especially when I don't have time to write a whole blog post about it. Here's some examples of what I've posted so far and there will be many many more photos in the future :)

Top 5 Essence Products

So as you know there's A LOT of makeup brands out there.
But sometimes the most affordable brands get ignored as people think you get what you pay for
and sometimes that's the case but not for everything.
Essence is an extremely affordable makeup brand available at Priceline and Target
that have some amazing products.
Yes they have some pretty crappy ones too but I'm here
to tell you about the ones worth buying!
Here are my top 5 in no particular order.


This bronzer comes in two shades: blondes and brunettes. Though the one for brunettes is only slightly darker. This bronzer is more of an all over bronzer rather than a contour colour as it's more orangey than brown. For only $6.15 you get a huge ass amount of product that will last you forever.
I used this product as a daytime bronzer to slightly accentuate the cheek bones and give my face a summer glow. Be sure to apply this product lightly and build it up to avoid an orange/brown mess on your face. I like how its not too dark so my face doesn't look dirty. Highly recommend!!


Soo Glow Cream to Powder Highlight
This has got to be the best cream to powder highlight I've ever used. As soon as its applied it changes its creamy formula to a smooth glowing powder. I apply this with my finger as a cheek bone highlight and it looks stunning!! This beauty is only $5.75 which is a total bargain! If there's one product to buy from essence this one's the one.
Example of Sun Club Bronzer-Blondes and
Soo Glow Cream to Powder Highlight

Eyebrow Stylist Set 1.0 Kit
This product has been raved about my many people out there so it's definitely a good one! The set comes with a light brown and dark brown colour though I only use the dark shade. Using an angles eyeliner brush and a spoolie, you can achieve some rocking brows so they're on fleek ;)

I Love Extreme Volume Mascara
This mascara has a huge brush and is very wet. This may cause disaster but with patience and the right application, this mascara works wonders. I have the shortest eyelashes ever and this mascara gives me both volume and length. You just have to be careful applying it.

Lipliner- Cute Pink
I love lipliners, they provide colour without being thick or sticky on the lips. This one from essence is only $2!! There's not much more to say than it does the job wonderfully. Example in picture above.
