SKIN DOCTORS gamma hydroxy review.

Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy Skin Resurfacing Cream. £26.95 from Amazon.

Let me start off by saying I have found the HOLY GRAIL of skincare. Well in my opinion anyways. This product has been likened to a chemical peel due to the gamma hydroxy acid which is said to gently improve blemishes, acne scarring, reduces blackheads and whiteheads and decongest block pores. Don't mistake me for a scientist I just got that from the product description! I do agree with that 100%. You are suppose to see results after 12 weeks of continued use twice a day but I can honestly see a difference in my skin after just 2 weeks. My pore size has slightly decreased and my skin tone overall is a lot more even. I have freckles and redness so this is awesome! Having dry sensitive skin this does tingle slightly when applied but that soon goes away. It also give my face a shine which I actually really love because when I put my foundation on I have a glow (no not shine). It doesn't feel oily or greasy at all. It has made my skin peel but that's a good sign apparently! I would honestly recommend this to anyone as I have the most sensitive skin out there! I love it and will continue to buy again and again horarrrr! xoxo

  • Offers the amazing benefits of skin resurfacing without lasers or peels
  • Powerful skin resurfacing technology that is gentle enough to be used everyday
  • Is enriched with fruit acids to regenerate skin renewal and refine skin's texture
  • Improves blemishes, acne scarring, reduces blackheads and whiteheads and decongests blocked pores
  • Reduces pore size and improves skin's texture and tone
  • Within 12 weeks you should enjoy skin that is visibly firmer and smoother.

Let It Rip (DIY Shorts)

Hello happy people! Realllly quick post before I head out into the sunshine. This is what i am wearing today. I left my tripod elsewhere hence the MySpace bathroom pic but this post is really to show you my D.I.Y denim shorts. I had been looking for a pair of decent shorts for ages and I found a pair of Levi's for £20 in BLITZ vintage store in London. Then I got greedy and wanted some more. So instead of spending another £20, I found a pair of ugly jeans in my local charity shop for £2 .. UHUHHH! Then I cut them, ripped them and made the denim come away by using sandpaper. The wash made all the lovely white frayed bits come out. THEN I put them in bleach and water for about an hour and a half (totally forgot about them) and they came out like this! Pretty pleased and only £2 what a bargain! I know sooo many people have done posts and videos on this but hey ho :) xoxo

Glory Days.

Dress - Beyond Retro. Jacket - H&M. Denim jacket - Primark. Jewellery - Regal Rose. Sunglasses - H&M.

What's that .. on the floor? Oh did you take my picture? So I changed my hair AGAIN. Can you even tell haha? I didn't really like it 'copper' so I stripped it, bleached it, dyed it blonde and then ash brown and blonde ombre. Coconut oil and egg masks are my two best friends right now! Not much to say about this outfit. It's pretty simpleeeeee! I got this dress from beyond retro a while ago now. Well, when I say dress I actually mean playsuit that I just about managed to make into a dress and still keep my dignity.

I hope everyone's well and enjoying the sunshine! Emma xoxo
