Neutrogena Deep Clean Mask/Daily Cleanser Review!

Hi there Beauties :)
   Sorry I've been MIA for a longgg time, I'm just so busy with highschool! I'm going to try to post at least once a week.

Yesterday, I went to Shopper's Drug Mart and picked this baby up. It comes in two sizes (large and small) and I opted for the large one. I already knew I liked it because my Aunt had had it at her house when I slept over and I tried it out.

It is a blue intensive facial mask or it can be a daily cleanser. I'm going to use it as a face it's time for review!

Product: 9/10
 As the product itself, it is fantastic! I used this last night and my face is less oily (it has shine control) and my acne is basically gone. It brings the pimples to the surface of your face and I don't doubt it willl eventually eliminate all traces of my pimples!

Packaging: 7/10
 Now, I would actually prefer it to be inclosed in atleast a plastic box. That way, you know you would get the full product. Someone who is trying to harm people might slip like, poision inside of them. That's probably never happened, but never know!

Overall: 16/20
 I love, love, love this product and I cannot wait to see what it will do with my Lush face mask! :)

Would I reccomend this?
 Definitely! It works flawlessly (:

Insanity Day 15: Fit Tests 1 & 2 --> Comparing

Hi Beauties! :)
  So today was Insanity Day 15, also known as the second Fit Test day. I've seen an improvement in my cardio already and it's only the third week! Let me tell you, it is tough. If you have severe knee problems don't do this. As well as if you have mild-severe hip, back, leg and arm's not for you, haha. It is INSANE. I don't know how I do it. I bet I've gained muscle already, but I won't take a picture until the third fit test (Day 36). I absolutely hate Globe Jumps, they are well as push up jacks, I just don't get them.

Here is Fit Test #1, the very first day I started Insanity.

Switch Kicks: 70
Power Jacks: 37
Power Knees: 63
Power Jumps: 44
Globe Jumps: 9
Suicide Jumps: 7
Push-Up Jacks: 7
Low Plank Oblique: 25

Not too bad, but not amazing either. But hey, I wasn't very athletically inclined when I started. But I'm improving, that's for sure.

Fit Test #2:

Switch Kicks: 94
Power Jacks: 52
Power Knees: 81
Power Jumps: 50
Globe Jumps: 13
Suicide Jumps: 13
Push-Up Jacks: 10
Low Plank Oblique: 60

As you can see, I've really improved. The ones that have a lower count is the really hard ones, plus you get so tired by the end. Insanity has became a routine for me, I feel really guilty when I have to skip one workout. But I do it the next day. I basically come home from school, have a quick snack and around 3:30/4:00 my brother and I go workout. He doesn't think my reps are correct, but he's just jealous I got more than him.

Again, I'm not doing this to neccesarily lose weight, I'm doing it to tone up. It's really fun, but bring a small towel and a large water bottle with you! :)

Insanity: Day 2!

Hey Beauties!
   So today was Day 2 out of 60. I thought the fitness test was hard yesterday...this was like 1000 times harder. The warm-up itself lasted for at least 15 minutes. I now understand why it is called Insanity, it is INSANE!

Your whole body is just shuddering and shaking once you're done (I think I may be over-exaggerating just a bit ;P ), no but you feel like jelly! :D You do plenty of running (football style was my favourite!), jumping and push-ups.

Hey Beauties!
  Sorry for the lack of posts, you know how school is ;) So, no I am not going insane...this is about the workout DVD's by Shaun T (who is gorgeous (; ). Today, being the day before I start it, I thought I should post some before pictures and my measurements :) Keep in mind  that I'm 14 and a half years old and 5'8"/

Keep in mind that I had just ate and zoomed in a ton. So as you can see, I'm pretty skinny. But I'm using insanity to ton up. So, here are my measurements!

Weight: 130 lbs.

Waist: 28.5 in.

Chest: 34 in.

Bust: 33 in.

Arms: 10 in.

Bottom: 36 in.

Thighs: 19 in.

Calves: 13 in.

I'm not doing Insanity to lose a lot of weight, I really just want to tone up! :) Insanity is a 60 day workout program and I will be updating probably every other week or every fitness test (: 

Disclaimer: I was not given this for free to review, this is my own choice. Insanity was purchased by my brother and I.

The Piercing Of The Ear

Today, I decided that it was time. Time to get my ears re-pierced.

I walk into the jewelery store and start looking at the earrings. After about five minutes spent looking at them, I chose 14k gold tiny diamond studs; the smallest they had. So the lady wipes down the *new* guns with a wipe and then instructs me to sit down. She then asks if I want them pierced in the same spot, explaining if I did it would really hurt. I said she could move it higher up on my ear (like 1mm from the original holes). She did have to straighten out one of them, as when I got my ears pierced from before they were super crooked.

She then took one of the disposable guns, counted to three and bam! My right ear was done, she then did the exact same thing to the other ear. By far, my left ear hurt so much more. Then a little while later, we were walking by the store again and the lady calls us back. The guns didn't put my backings on, so the girl said it would hurt since she had to jam it on. But, it didn't hurt too bad. Actually, I barely felt it.

Getting your ears pierced feels like you're stapling your ears, to be honest. I'd have to rate it a 3/10, I have a low pain tolerance (:

Where I've Been and What's To Come!

Hey Beauties!
 Sorry I have been MIA for a while, but I have been babysitting like mad and preparing for highschool. Now, you may ask 'are you nervous?', my answer will be 'not at all!'. I am going back to school shopping on Monday and getting my ears re-pierced (eek!). There's something about back to school shopping that I love. I don't know why, I just do. 

In January or February (after first semester) I am getting my...navel pierced. Yes, my navel (bellybutton). I'm not afraid of needles, they just...creep me out. I cannot look at the needle...haha. I've been wanting this forever and the fact that my Mom's doing it with me is even better.

Uses for Lemon Juice?!?!

Hey Beauties :)
  I'm back from being MIA. So sorry about that. Anyway, I'm going to be posting uses for lemons/lemon juice...ready?

~ Acne: Yes, I've been trying this overnight acne treatment for a few nights now. You just squeeze half a lemon into a small, airtight container and use a cotton swab/ Q-Tip. Just dip it into the juice and apply it. Even if you get it into your mouth, it's still yummy!

~ Lightens Dark Underarms: Cut half a lemon and rub it onto the area :)

~ Lightens sunspots/freckles/darkspots: Put the juice on your face, sit in the sun for 5-10 minutess every week and bam! Just be careful, if you sit out too long...uh-oh :( It can bleach your face.

~ Hair Highlights: I suggest going to this Youtube and looking up Stilababe09 Lemon Juice Highlighting :)

~ Bleaches unwanted hair: Got that 'happy trail' of hair going from your stomach to...down south? Rub the juice on any unwanted hair and sit outside in the sun. This incudes upperlip hair too :)
That's all for today :)
