Tunesday


Hey music loversss! It seems like zero time since I last made one of these huh. I promise I have more posts lined up for next month i've just been so busy revising! Anyway lets have a look at the top 10 this week!
1) Stay with me- Sam Smith 
I'm quite a big fan of Sam Smith and this is a really pretty song for a guy with a really good voice, it's really catchy too, like money on my mind and I think this guys got way more hits ahead of him.
2) Waves- Mr Probs
This is still in the charts from last week, it's so summery it hurts you can literally hear the waves in the background which is awesome.
3) Dangerous love- Fuse ODG ft Sean Paul
Sean Paul has some absolute bangers, they're so catchy and this one is no different. It's really summery too with a really great beat.
4) I will never let you down- Rita Ora 
My baby! I've had a crush on Miss Ora for like ever and she's looking perf in this video, she looks great with short hair! I've been signing this song like all month, love it as much as I love her.
5)Extraordinary- Clean Bandit
Clean Bandit's new song is as amazing, if, even not more amazing, than rather be. Becoming increasingly obsessed with these, their beats are perf.
5)All Of Me- John Legend
Still infatuated with this song and it seems like you guys are too!
6)Summer- Calvin Harris 
I love Calvin Harris...and his accent...and his face. The video has like hella half naked woman dancing which annoys me but I do actually really like the song.
8) Only Love Can Hurt Like This- Paloma Faith
I love Paloma! so much she's so beautiful! This song is awesome just like her voice! Gah I could listen to her forever
9) Hideaway- Kiesza
This song is still in the charts, it's literally always on the radio I think which gets kind of repetitive, but it's still a good song
10) Love Never Felt So Good- Michael Jackson
it seems this guy can still get into the charts when he's dead huh! Technology is great.

Clinique anti blemish step system review

Hey pretties, I only have one exam left! I'm so happy finally I can relax a little and just focus on biology unit 2, the fact that they're all nearly over is scary actually my whole year has led to this, fingers crossed I haven't messed it up huh. Goodluck if you have been doing exams! Tell me how they went down in the comments, I bet you all did great. Anyway I thought I'd squeeze in a few reviews before tunesday and I said I'd do this review in may awhile ago and I know a few people wanted me to do it. I did a step system of my own here explaining how to deal with breakouts (trust me I know.) Since I've suffered from acne since I was like eleven I've been trying a range of different treatments from tablets and different creams and I finally decided to go for clinique. There is a main three step system, with added foundation and a little gel so Im going to talk about each product separately. The first step is a cleansing foam or soap, I used the foam which looks like this
It has a really nice texture actually, it doesnt feel greasy or anything and literally as soon as you use it your skin looks better which is really strange. I'm actually a really big fan of foams for faces on a whole which is why i choose it over the soap but I guess it's preference. I like this product on a whole, with the others however it can be drying so its super important to only use on squirt of the bottle or your skin will hurt.

The second part is an ex-foliating toner
I like the exfoliating part because it means I'm not using a scrub on my face which can somtimes burst spots because they can be harsh. Im into toners a lot, I have another favourite toner which I used before this which is lancome called tonique eclat which is also pricey but really good. Again it's so important to only use a little of this because it can really really dry out your skin.

The third part is the moisturiser 
 For me this was the worst part of the trio. It was so incredibly drying it was impossible to put on my face. My face would actually hurt using this product I hated it. I used it for about a week and decided I just couldnt any more and instead I use the dramatically different moisteriser which is like my favorite ever and I love it, I actually really recommend using the dramatically different one because with this I found way too drying and uncomfortable. 

I do use the gel which I really like too actually but I don't use the foundation. Ive heard so many good stuff and I do actually really like the foundation but because of how dry it all makes my face it just goes patchy and looks awful so I use Bennifit oxygen wow which I'll do a review on sometime which I adore because it never makes my skin look patchy or anything. I still have a lot of scars on my face and I do still get breakouts with these, it has by no means completely changed my life and no I have clear skin or anything like that and it does dry your skin out so much. However I have noticed a difference in size of my spots, I no longer get massive white headed spots like a used to and it has reduced shine so much I barely have to use powder anymore which is fantastic. It is so pricey for these products so if you're using something and its working its worth staying on that just because of how expensive the products are. Having said that they do last a long time so that counts for something. They seem to have worked for everyone but me somehow, almost every review I've read always says how much they worked and for me they didnt do that. I'm going to continue with them for now because they have worked to a degree and I want to see if they carry on making a difference. I do recommend this system though just because it honestly had made a difference just not to the extent I would have liked, but they do amazing things for the majority of people! Have you tried these products? Tell me if they have worked for you in the comments!
