Review: The Body Shop – Shade Adjusting Drops: Lightening

Welcome to our 1st review 😊

As you would have gathered by the title of this blog post, today I will be reviewing “The Body Shop – Shade Adjusting Drops: Lightening.”

Now every individual living in the UK know how hard it is to maintain a tan because of the horrendous weather patterns. So when you come to realise that your £32.00 foundation is no longer the correct shade you feel like murdering someone. 😈

This happened to me several weeks ago and I was getting ready to go to a wedding. Luckily I had several months ago purchased another foundation (sorry makeup addict here) that was a tad to dark online and could not return it (I know I am an idiot for not going to get matched 😳) So to ensure I had not wasted my money I purchased these shade adjusting drops.

Let me tell you. A few weeks ago this product was a life saver because I had lost my tan and therefore was in desperate need of a lighter foundation. This stuff is legit GOLD. It needs to be in everyone’s makeup kit. I was able to successfully lighten the incriminating foundation.

It gets better trust me. Not only can you buy the Lightening drops, it is also available as Darkening drops aswell. So if you needed to darken your foundation you could. Not only can you do this but you could also darken a bit of your foundation and apply it as a contour. 😲😲

The product itself comes in a dropper bottle and a little goes a long way. There are 2 downsides. Firstly, I find the formula a but gunky but that may just be as a result of storage or not shaking the bottle properly. I am so lazy. 😜 Secondly, the bottle only contains 15mL and is priced at £10. So a tad dear, however it is a lifesaver and prevented me from buying another foundation.

Some people might say just use a lighter foundation to mix in with the darker one. But I find that the consistency changes. With this product, you would never know. It stays the same consistency as it did when it came out the bottle.

On a final note, I have not been paid to do this review and this is my true opinion of the product. I can honestly say that it has been life changing. So I will leave the link down below for you to explore and until next time. 😊

Worried? Don’t be…

The racing thoughts. The burning questions. The what if’s? The heartache. It all feels like a downward spiral with a frightening landing.

Most humans are ingrained to think out each situation a million times over. Women more so than men. However, we can develop a level of anxiety, which just causes us to go into meltdown 😥…

Everytime this happens to you, where you find yourself worried out of your mind over something, maybe you have been asked or possibly need to do, but you don’t know how to tackle it.

Lay out your options.

On a blank piece of paper, write out all of your questions and then go back with your answers.

Let me give you an example. A new job. Worried if it’s the right thing for you?

Do you have to move away?

What would your family say?

Do you have to leave your parents/husband/wife/kids for long periods of time?

Will you fit in?

Will the job be a step up in your career?

Do you need a change of scenery?

Am I prepared enough?

Do I have enough knowledge for this job?

And so on…

By physically writing out and laying out your thought pattern, you not only are easily able to see clearly if its the right thing for you, but also it gives your poor brain a rest.

Once you have got your answers, rip that m*****f****r up. 😉

Hope this helped. Before you guys go, leave a comment down below on topics that you would like us to discuss and give our opinion on.

Stay blessed and until next time.

9-5 Grind…..Sometimes it’s now or never.

Do you ever feel that 9-5 is just not for you, I have many times. You get up in the morning, shower, have breakfast, get changed and set out to work. You reach work, you do the same things day in day out….You go home, undress, shower, eat, relax and sleep. There just is no element of fun to your life any more. The routine you once dreamed of has now become lethal. You feel like life has been drained out of you, every Sunday you think of your week ahead and you realise it’s the same thing, every day. How can you spend your entire life doing this, not working towards your own goals and spending your life working for someone else’s dreams. Believe it or not, this use to be me, I spent pretty much my life working for someone else’s dream without pursuing my own. That’s why I decided I needed to become more adventurous, more courageous, more gutsy. Now more than ever, I needed to let go of everything that was holding me back and pursue my dreams. I needed to run with the ideas I had, I needed to get started now or it would never happen and most of all I needed to believe that I can do it.

That’s how you need to think, pursue your dream, make it happen because before you know it you would have spent 10 or more years in a job you didn’t really enjoy, that’s 10 years too late, go for it now!
