REVIEW // Moroccan Argan Oil Night Repair Serum.

A Short Blogpost for today, quickly reviewing this night oil serum which I believe works really well! The consistency is a holographic colour in a milky, liquid formula, which you thinly layer on the face before sleeping.

The tube is a wonderful size, considering you only need a few drops on the face which is plenty. Furthermore, the serum immediately sinks into the skin and doesn't leave the skin feeling sticky. In the morning, the skin feels wonderfully hydrated. I'm not saying this is a miracle product, removing all acne, however I am saying that I'm a fan of Argan oil for the skin and the hair.

Personal Style vs. Replication

Not that I'm one who has the most perfect personal style, but I wanted to touch base on this topic. I often flick through magazine after magazine contemplating my personal style and comparing it against the style of others, somewhat feeling incomplete. Same goes with beauty looks, I can sit for hours watching YouTube videos on how to do my eyebrows in a certain way, always wanting to look like someone else. There's a clear line between copying someone else's style and owning your own personal style. 

I don't even know where I'm going with this blogpost, you must be confused reading this.

Basically, what I'm trying to say is be you, regardless of how cliche or cringey it sounds. Take inspiration from people in the magazines or your personal style icon, or else we all look like robots all trying to look the same way. With all this social media - tumblr, instagram, twitter, weheartit, pinterest etc it's so difficult to be individual with a fashion sense or style. 

A great place for finding a personal inspiration is polyvore check it out.
