Goodbye spots

Hey everyone

I hope you are all well and have had a great Easter. Today I am going to talk about my favourite product to get rid of those horrible spots that everyone gets and everyone hates. My skin is really dry but usually quite clear but when I get breakouts its all around my nose and my chin.img_2482

The product that works for me is the Witch blemish stick. This product is super cheap but really does help clear my skin. So basically you just have to push the product up and then apply the stick to any spots that have just occurred or are about to come up. This way you are able to keep them under a bit of control. The reason I like this product so much is firstly because it works haha. But also it sinks in really quickly. I am one of those people who can’t stand feeling all sticky with cream either on my face or just generally all over my body, but this product only takes a few minutes to sink in and then you can’t feel it any more. Also as it is a stick it’s able to directly get onto the spots. This is great when the spots are in hard positions to get to.img_2484

A down side to this product it that it does smell, that might just be because I apply it so near my nose so I’m able to smell it more, but it’s not the most pleasant smell. Also sometimes it can sting on your skin. The only time that has happened is when my skin has been really dry so it may be a combination of things but when it stings you just have to let it sting for a few minutes and then it will hopefully go away.

So overall I love this product because it really did help and target my spots to get rid of them quicker than other products that I have tried. I think I would give it a eight out of ten just because it does smell and when it stings it really hurts, but other than those two downsides the product is overall really good. I would love to know what you use for your skin care as I’m always on the look out to try new things.

Thank you for reading I will see you soon for my next post. I’m really sorry for the lack of posts at the moment I am in the middle of revising and that is taking all of my time but only about another month to go!!!!

Survival guide: Revision/ School

Hey everyone


So today I thought about doing another survival guide blog post. All about school. So I have done my GCSEs and I thought I would give you a few tips about revision but also just school in general. This is quite a long post so you might want to sit down get a drink and a snack, and enjoy.

So firstly revision, the dreaded word for most 15-18 year old’s (or if you go to uni then older). I wasn’t the best at revision and I’m not going to pretend I was because I would be lying, however I did learn a few tricks to motivate me through exams. The most important thing to do when revising is to keep organised. I wrote a whole blog post about keeping organised so if you want to have a read of that then click here.

Resousrces you may need

  • Paper and coloured pens are a must have. Making revision as bright as possible is what helped me
  • Post it notes
  • Cue cards
  • Snacks

Some of my revision resourcse

Anyway with revision I made a timetable that I tried to stick to (it didn’t always work) but it gave me some goals to try and achieve, and like I said in my other post it’s so satisfying to tick things off once you have finished. With the timetable I made sure I took breaks and also prioritised in order of importance and what was coming first. For example I was never good at maths, I’m still not now haha, but I made sure I did loads of maths revision so that I went in feeling as confident as I could.

Past papers is also another big help when revising. I used the website Fast past papers to get past papers and then completed them in the time period with no resources in front of me. This is such a great way to know what you know and what you need to work on, also it helps you get a feel for questions because there is only a certain amount of questions they can ask.

So lastly for revision tips is watch people on YouTube. For my English I watched Mr Bruff because he went through all the poems and texts and helped answer the questions for the exam. Another person who is great for revision is Eve Bennett with her revision channel. Eve like myself went through her exams and is able to give personal experiences and more tips on how to revise. She also talks about specific subjects and how she was able to revise so that might be useful if your unsure how to revise languages for example.

So moving on to school (I’m sorry if this post if long, maybe take a break and get another drink) the best advice I can give is ask for help when you need it. Your not stupid if you don’t understand because I guarantee there will be someone else who doesn’t get it either. Take all the advice you need because that’s what teachers are there for. Also for the exams the teachers will want you to be as confidant as you can.

So the last point I will make for this really long post on school, is enjoy friendships and lunch. This may sound really weird but the lunch period is where you can relax for about an hour and then you will be able to have a little chat and your brain can switch off, but then be ready to learn again after lunch.

So that is the end of this post. Thank you if you stayed to the end I know this was very long. However I hope you enjoyed, I would love to know your tips either for revision or school down below because there are so many interesting ones out there. Anyway thank you again, if there is anything you would like to hear from me leave a comment.

See you soon
