Banish Acne Scars Skincare & Giveaway

I recently discovered Banish Acne Scars* skincare and I'm very impressed with all of the products I have tried from their range. I have also heard so many good things about their Activated Charcoal Clay Masque so I had to try that out along with a few other products. Banish Acne Scars are a skincare range designed to help reduce the appearance of acne scars, blemishes, and stretch marks. I have slight hyper pigmentation on both sides of my cheeks, it may not be noticeable to other people as I do have freckles but I certainly notice it and it has been an issue for me for some time now. I have recently been using the Banish Activated Charcoal Clay Masque, the Vitamin C Crème and the Vitamin C Serum along with the Pen Stamp for around two months now and I am very impressed so far.
The Charcoal Clay Masque has got to be my favourite product from the range I have a love for face masks and especially ones that I see instant results from. The Banish Activated Charcoal Clay Masque has the ability to absorb impurities up to 100 to 200 times it's weight which allows the activated charcoal to take out huge amounts of toxins within the skin and pores. The charcoal also absorbs harmful bacteria that may cause acne, while still helping to keep your face clear of new breakouts and at the same time healing current acne. I have noticed a huge difference in my skin since using the Charcoal clay masque I don't break out as much as I used to and also I have noticed that my dark spots have faded. I tend to use this mask around once a week and I leave it on my face for around 15 minutes.
Vitamin C is very important for your body and is vital to skin and overall health. It is also an antioxidant, and antioxidants slow down the body's aging process. I have really been enjoying using the Banish Vitamin C Serum I apply this after I have cleansed my face and before using the Vitamin C Crème. I have noticed that my skin feels and looks a lot healthier once I've used this serum. I have also noticed a reduce in redness in certain areas of my face which is great.
I absolutely love the Banish Vitamin C Crème it is packed full of collagen which helps to hydrate your skin while leaving it feeling fresh, clear and glowing. The Banish Vitamin C Crème is a hydrating collagen boosting cream which will leave your skin feeling fresh, youthful, clear, and glowing. A little goes such a long way so you literally only need a pea sized amount to cover your whole face. The Vitamin C Crème is designed to help reduce wrinkles, age spots, premature aging, reduce inflammation and irritation which also helps to reduce acne and prevent skin damage. I really like that this crème absorbs into my skin quite quickly and it's non greasy which I also really like. My skin feels super hydrated after I use the Banish moisturiser, I tend to use this morning and night as I absolutely love the results.
I was very curious and sceptical about the Banish Pen Stamp which is designed to banish acne, hyper pigmentation and large pores. The Pen Stamp has tiny bristles that activates your skin's fibroblasts which help to rebuild your skin's support system. After around 4 times of using the Banish Pen Stamp I noticed a difference in my pores and my hyper pigmentation on my cheeks had reduce quite a bit. (Before using the Pen Stamp you must sterilize it in boiling water).
Overall I am very impressed with the Banish Acne Scars Skincare range and I can't wait to try more of their products. Banish have teamed up with me to give one of my lovely readers the chance to win two single products of your choice from their website, see details below.

Lancôme Absolu Voyage Complete Make-Up Palette and Giveaway

The Lancôme Absolu Voyage Complete Make-up Palette is a travel edition palette that gives you a fully polished make-up look in minutes. Firstly it's absolutely stunning and I love the packaging, the small detailing to the Lancôme palettes makes them look and feel special. I have a slight obsession with palettes and they're honestly my favourite things to collect so I was super happy to add this to my make-up collection. The packaging is very cute and chic, it is the perfect size palette and it fits into my handbag nicely. I love taking this on the go or traveling as it honestly includes everything I need.  
- 6x eye shadows
- 2 x Concealers  
- 1x Powder Blush
- 2x Solid Lip Colours
- 1x Lip Gloss
- 6x Eye Shadows
- 1x Compact Powder
- 1x Black Mascara
- 1x Mini Black Kohl
- 1x Mini Lip Contour Pencil

I absolutely love the eye shadows in the Lancôme Absolu Voyage palette they have a  velvety silky formula which means they apply like a dream. There are a good mix of neutrals for any day time look, it also includes a stunning deep purple shade which can easily be applied to the crease for an evening look in minutes. The two small brushes included in the palette are actually quite good quality which I was surprised about. The bristles on the brushes are very soft which allows them to apply and blend in eye shadow amazingly. I really like the Lancôme mascara included in this palette and I may now have to invest in the full sized version, my lashes instantly look lifted and have a lot more volume. The only thing I would say this palette is missing is a bronzer and a highlighter but overall it's a great palette, it contains a whole makeup look in one palette and it's an amazing one to add to any make-up collection.

One Year Blogging

In a way this day is kind of like my blogs Birthday so Happy Birthday to my blog! My sister made me these amazing cupcakes with Rose Gold cupcake cases which I absoutley love as im slighty obsessed with everything Rose Gold. I can't quite believe it's been exactly a year today since I decided to write about all the things I love on this little page and just share my thoughts with you all. I remember sitting with my sister saying I really want to start a blog so I sat for hours working on my template and drafting up a few blog post's and within a few days my followers just kept growing, I was honestly shocked at how many followers I gained in such a short amount of time, but in a way it just encouraged me to continue. This year has gone incredibly quick and I honestly didn't think I'd be anywhere near to 7,000 followers in one year. As much as I love all beauty products blogging means so much more to me not only does it allow me to discuss and share with you all something I love and am passionate about but it also allows me to be creative and meet many amazing people and have opportunities I never thought would be possible. I still can't believe people actually like reading what I have to write but I can't thank you enough for coming back to my page and being apart of my blog and I couldn't be more grateful. As much as I love trying new products blogging allows me to do something else I love which is photography I love being creative with my blog posts and I love taking photos of absolutely everything.
I hope to continue blogging for many years to come and I can't wait for all the future blog posts I have planned. I would love to start doing travel style post's and a lot more lifestyle posts so keep an eye out for those. Lastly I would once again like to say a massive Thank You to everyone who follows me and reads my blog continuously, it means the world to me so Thank You! Please feel free to email me for a chat or on Twitter or Instagram, I love meeting new people and other bloggers and I would also love to support you on your blogging journey.
Love Emma x
