RMK Brightening Jelly Sheet

 Warning: in the next photo I look like something from a horror movie.
I've stayed loyal to my Origins Clear Improvement mask for over a year now but my lovely little sister bought me a RMK mask to test out because "it makes your face soft and glow-y" she's very picky so if it's good enough for her, it's good enough for me.

The packet is filled with a liquid so the jelly doesn't dry out (I wasn't aware of this so had to change outfits straight after using it- clever!) and the jelly comes placed between two plastic sheets. The sheets smell fruity but aren't overbearing. When taking the first plastic sheet off you have to be very careful that none of the mask is caught on the piece you're removing or the jelly gets stuck together. Then place the jelly, still with one piece of plastic on, to your face until you have aligned all of the holes. Once this is done, the other plastic sheet can be removed.

For 15 minutes you will look like you've just stepped off the makeup van for a horror movie but after that you are left with radiant, moisturised skin. I tried to take a photo but the camera couldn't catch a difference even though there was a very clear one in person. My skin looked more plump and bright after using this. I did, however, notice that the results were very short term and only lasted a day. Therefore, I highly recommend this before a big night out or if you're feeling particularly tired. It is a bit pricy at £40 for 4 from Selfridges but makes for the perfect pamper treat.

Show-stopper Hair and Where I've Been

Let me just start by saying: i've missed you!

Biggest thing that's happened since I left: SEPHORA NOW SHIPS TO THE UK. YAY. Goodbye money, helloooo new collections. Right, now to the point...

I took a little break from blogging, simply, because i was absolutely exhausted. I've been in an amazing production of "West Side Story" playing "Maria" (If you fancy a nosy there is an article on it here). It was such a great experience and I learnt so much but boy, was I tired! After shows I didn't get home until 1am and was going to school at 7am so had next to no sleep which meant my lovely little blog got no attention. That being said, I am back! I'm planning on posting every week, again, and I felt the best way to come back was to talk about the products I used in my hair to make sure it stayed healthy whilst not moving for 5 hours- tough but doable.
After washing my hair the first thing I do is brush it to get rid of knots to make adding products much easier. The first thing I added was "It's a 10!" to reduce frizz, help detangle and soften my hair. To moisturise my hair I add Moroccan oil (I use the cheap alternative).
During blowdrying i used the Moroccan oil large barrel brush alongside the GHD heat protectant to reduce damage. To finish off the look I use some more Moroccan oil to give some extra moisture and shine. To make sure the curls held I used Pantene Volume & Body Ultra Strong Hairspray. Mini rave: Best hairspray i've ever used. My hair looked natural and stayed in place all evening but with the stroke of a brush went back to my normal, natural, hair. Extremely impressive. 

After doing the show i've found myself following this routine for nights out and my hair stays put. Do you have any tips/ products to get your hair to stay in place?
