PureActive Intensive 3in1, with blueberry extract and charcoal, can be used as a wash, scrub and mask to visibly reduce the appearance of blackheads and spots, and help to protect against their reappearance.

Proven Effectiveness

Wash: It intensely purifies skin and removes dirt and impurities. All impurities appear removed

Mask: Reduces the look of shine while leaving skin feeling comfortable and smooth. Excess of sebum appears eliminated.

How I use the product-

I use this product in the shower.

And you only need a small amount to cover your entire face.

I then cleanse and scrub my face.

After a month of using this product:

I noticed my skin becoming a bit clearer

The blackheads are also going. I also do a nose pore strip and extractions with a tool from Tweezerman, which helps with blackheads and whiteheads.

Also, this product is affordable.

How I make my blemishes disappear 

These are the products that I use:

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion


I usually put this on a pimple at night as it will dry it out and reduce its appearance.

This contains a blend of Calamine and Salicylic Acid.

This has helped reduce the appearance of my spots.

How to use-

  • Do not shake solution.
  • Dip a cotton swab into the pink sediment.
  • Dab on a pimple and let dry.
  • Wash off solution in the morning.


Cos RD Acne Pimple Master Match


Quickly vanquish blots on an otherwise flawless visage with CosRx’s Pimple Master Patches – spot-controlling hydrocolloid ‘stickers’, which ward against infection whilst battling blemishes into submission. Hydrocolloid is effective at ‘drawing’ impurities – encouraging even deep-rooted, cystic blemishes to come to a head – which in turn, speeds up their life cycle. These are the perfect, quick-fix solution for complexion crises – calming redness and soothing red, angry imperfections to swiftly restore skin clarity. Always at the cutting-edge of Asian innovation, where South Korea leads the rest of the industry eventually follows. Renowned for their high-maintenance, myriad-step skincare rituals – and flawless complexions – Korean women leave no stone (or silk work) unturned in their quest for complexion, so discover CosRx and discover the secret to beautiful, blemish-free skin.

This product extracts what is in the spot and all the oil surrounding it. I usually wear this during the day when I’m at home and during the night if I know that the spot is not budging.


L’Óreal Blemish Rescue Face Mask


L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Blemish Rescue Mask features a powerful blend of 3 Pure Clays combined with Marine Algae Extract.

Targeted towards for spot/blemish prone skin, the L’Oréal Paris Laboratories have selected three Pure Clays and combined them with Marine Algae extract, known for its anti-blemish properties. The creamy texture of the L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Blemish Rescue Mask targets deep into the pores, to unclog blackheads and clear imperfections, leaving the skin pure and fresh without drying it out.

I usually apply this once or twice a week. And leave it on for 10-15 minutes. This is one of my favourite masks. This helps with my blemishes by unclogging my pores, so by getting rid of the bad oil and the dirt.


Sand and Sky Purifying Pink Clay Mask


Like giving your skin a fresh, natural Australian holiday (in just 10 minutes) Sand&Sky’s Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask utilises natural wonders to instantly detoxify and brighten your skin. The secret ingredient, Australian pink clay, is the real star of the show here – it draws out impurities, toxins and pollutants from the skin unlike anything else, refining pores and deeply cleansing as it goes. To invigorate skin and brighten further, organic liquorice and old man’s weed (another Aussie gem) help to regenerate skin cells and stimulate cell production, gently removing pigmentation clusters from the skin’s surface. To continue this refining action, organic pomegranate and aloe vera tighten pores and soothe, stimulating collagen production for long-term firming. Brilliantly brightening, the pink clay is also complemented by Kakadu plum and organic mangosteen to guard against free radical damage and create a defensive shield to deflect harmful pollutants. Impaired by absolutely nothing and suitable even for sensitive skin types – no nasties nor animal testing here! – this luscious, naturally powered clay mask instantly boosts radiance, leaving you with a clearer complexion and an unbelievable, youthful glow.

I would use this 2-3 times a week as I have oily combination skin.

This brings out all of impurities and brightens my skin.

My tips when using a face mask-

Always cleanse the skin beforehand

If you have a facial steam machine, use that as it will open your pores, use it for 10 minutes

Always leave your mask on till it drys

Always tone your skin afterwards

What products do you use?

Must Have Highend Makeup Products 

1. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray 

One of the best setting sprays on the market, and it really makes a difference to my makeup.

This makes the powder blend into my skin. And the spray is not harsh, it’s like a bit more than a fine mist and it works really well.

It does make my makeup last longer. This is a part of my makeup routine.

2. Mac Fix Plus Spray 

This spray is great for enhancing shimmer eyeshadows. And the spray makes my makeup look like my skin after powder.

3. Ofra Cosmetics Highlighters 

These Highlighters are one of the best. The formula is amazing. This highlight is pigmented and blends so well.

There are also so many shades available to suit different skin tones.

4. Iconic London Illuminator 

This liquid highlight is amazing. I have the original shade, which is perfect for my skin tone. This with a powder highlight is amazing and pigmented.

5. Kat Von D Contour Palette

6. Tarte Tartiest Lip Paint

The formula is not drying and lasts a good amount of time. They have so many shades to choose from.

7. Tarte Shape Tape Concealer 

I have the shades medium and tan sand. This concealer is full coverage and does not crease under my eye. This also covers up some of my dark pigmentation.

8. Nars Sheer Glow Foundation 

This foundation is great on days where I have set skin. So this is usually my go-to included the winter. The coverage is medium to full. The foundation lasts a good amount of time.

9. Stila Magnificent Metals 

This great if you want your eye to pop with giltter. It’s so easy to apply. They have so many colours to choose from. With this product, I would do my eyes first as there is fall out when blending out the eyeshadows.

Top Five Eyeshadow Palettes #2

  1. Morphe Jaclyn Hill Palette 

The quality of these eyeshadows is amazing. There isn’t a lot of kick back in the pans and not a lot of fallout when applying the eyeshadows. there are so many shades to choose from.

2. Makeup Geek Eyeshadows and Anastasia Beverly Hills Single Eyeshadows

These are some of my favorite formulas, and these were some of the first eyeshadows that I purchased. I always go back to these as they are so good.

There are so many shades to choose from. But the downside is they are not travel-friendly.

3. ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette

This eyeshadow palette is a bit of an investment, but so worth it. A bit of kickback in the pans, but it is not a big deal. The shadows blend really well and you can create many looks with the palette.  It is also travel-friendly.

4. Dose OF Colors Baked Browns Palette

The blendability on these eyeshadows are amazing. If you love warm brown tones then this is the palette for you. A bit of kickback and fallout but nothing too dramatic.

5. Colourpop Single Eyeshadows

These are some of the most affordable eyeshadows on the market. They also have a variety of shades to choose from. Some fallout but I would suggest doing your eyeshadow before the rest of your face.

Makeup I Regret Buying 

1. Huda Beauty Rose Gold Textured Palette 

This palette has been so hyped up in my opinion, and I fell for the hype. But I just didn’t reach for the palette. And if I did use it, the Matte eyeshadows weren’t good. 
2. Mac Cosmetics Oh Darling Highlight 

Over hyped product. Not very pigmented and expensive. Not creamy, blendable, very glittery and powdery. 

3. Dior Star Skin Foundation 

The shade range has a very pink undertone. Very expensive. Not a good coverage and it didn’t apply to my skin well. 
4. L’Oréal Pure Clay Glow Mask

The exfoliating beads didn’t do anything for me and I didn’t like the texture. 
5. Jeffree Star liquid lipstick 

Never reached for it and the shades didn’t seem appealing to me. 
6. Morphe Brushes 35O Palette 

Even though Palette is good and affordable.  I just have other palettes that I prefer.

Is It Worth It? Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation 

The Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation is a new foundation from Urban Decay. The foundation claims to be full coverage, matte, oil free and long wearing. And all of these criteria’s are true. 

The packaging is a sleek gun metal packaging. It has a pump which makes you use the right amount of product. The product contains 30ml. The only thing bad about the packaging is that finger prints get all over the packaging. 

Formula wise, the foundation has a thick liquid consistency. When using the foundation, I recommend only using one pump of the product. To blend out the product, I would recommend blending out the product by using a damp beauty blender or beauty sponge.

However, if you have dry skin this foundation is not for you. It will emphasis the dryness on your face. 

When I wear the foundation, the product works well for the my skin type, which is combination meaning I have both oily and dry skin.

This foundation oxidises meaning once the foundation is on it goes slightly darker. So I would recommend a shade lighter or the right shade, I would go to the shop and test the foundation and see what shade works for me. 

The lasting power of this foundation is not the best, sometimes it settles into my smile lines and it emphasised the texture on my chin and cheek, where I have acne. 

The best primer that works best for me is the Benefit Porefessional primer. 

To be honest I will finish this foundation but I probably will not re-purchase it. This foundation is for really oily skin. The foundation costs £27. 

Where to buy the product: 

Next up will be the Ride Or Die Tag.
