DIY: Chocolate Face Mask (?)

Hello girls! Long time no post ! I hate school ! (when it keeps my away from blogging!)

The weather is getting cooler and cooler (even if today it's a beautiful sunny sunday). I thought it was a great idea to blog about my most recent homemade and super yummyyy face mask!


Have you ever though that dark chocolate is good for the skin? People always used to say that chocolate causes breakouts when you eat it, but how about putting it on your face?

This mask is amazing for these cold months,when we need some extra moisture.
Works amazingly on dry/normal skin but it's good for all skin types.

What you'll need/ Συστατικά :


100gr dark chocolate/ 100γρ κουβερτούρα
230ml (or 1 us cup) milk/ 230ml γάλα
3 tbsp salt/3 κ. γλυκού αλάτι

STEP 1 

In a small bowl pour the milk and the salt until it dissolves
Σε ένα μικρό δοχείο βάλτε το γάλα και ρίξτε το αλάτι ώσπου να διαλυθεί.

STEP 2


Melt the chocolate(in Bain-marie or microwave)
Λιώστε τη σοκολάτα είτε με μπεν-μαρί είτε στο φούρνο μικροκυμάτων.

STEP 3

Add the milk and stir well with a whisk until it comes together and looks glossy
Ρίξτε το γάλα και ανακατέψτε καλά ώσπου να γυαλίσει

STEP 4

Wait until it's cool enough-room temperature- and apply on your face. Leave it for 15min and wash with lukewarm water.
Περιμένετε να κρυώσει - σε θερμοκρασία δωματίου- και απλώστε το στο πρόσωπο.
Αφήστε για 15 λεπτά και ξεβγάλτε με χλιαρό νερό.


Would you try this homemade chocolate mask?

-ps Seriously I can't wait for Christmas!!

Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer: A review

Hello girlss!!  This week has been hectic! I am here with a review though...


LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER



I'm sure you have seen this concealer, everyone raves about it! "it's the best concealer!" "it's so long lasting" "it's sooo... soo... etc" After watching youtube gurus swearing about it, i thought to give it a try...

The company claims:

- Ultimate wear concealer conceals flaws, imperfections and blemishes for up to 16 hours.
- Oil free
- Transfer proof and water resistant for full and long lasting coverage
- Provides beautiful, shine-free, blemish-free skin for every waking hour

  • Colors : It's available in 4 shades. #1 Fair #2 Light #3 Medium #4 Deep - warning- yellow tones! My shade is #2 and it's a very good match to a NC20
  • Coverage : Great! This is FULL coverage concealer! It's quite thick, but easy to blend. 
  • Price : 5.99 pounds at Boots/Superdrug or ebay 
  • NON ANIMAL TESTING COMPANY!




OVERAL

7/10
I think it's a great concealer for its price. Though it's overrated. It covers amazingly spots/blemishes but under the eyes is just too thick and cakey. 


Updated opinion

Now i've been really enjoying this concealer for the under eye area. The key to avoid cake-like skin is to apply it with a fluffy brush,this way it looks nicer. Also I don't set it with powder.

Kisses, Anastasia
