Super Facialist Anti-Blemish Skincare Review

For most of 2017, I struggled as my skin started to change and all of a sudden I was experiencing blemishes, mainly across my forehead. I definitely had to come to the realisation that as I am getting older my skin is definitely changing and that I would have to change my skincare routine. I decided at the beginning of this year to build a new skincare routine by trying new products and the first being by Super Facialist. 

As a teenager, I experienced acne and it was quite severe, all over my cheeks. I eventually found that less was more and found that by keeping my skincare routine simply I was able to clear my acne and all the dark marks that it caused. I continued to use the routine until I had Ky and again my skin changed from all the hormones caused by pregnancy. Since then I have struggled to find what works well. 

What is Super Facialist?

A skincare range that combines natural extracts, scientific ingredients and wonderful aromas.They have 6 collections that can address specific skin concerns and needs.

The collections are as follows:

Rose – For Hydration

Vitamin C – For Radiance Boosting/ Brightening

Retinol – For Anti-Ageing

Pure – For Sensitive Skin

Hyaluronic Acid – For Firming

Salicylic Acid – For Anti Blemish

My thoughts on the Salicylic Acid Range

The Anti Blemish range is meant to deliver solutions to combat skin breakouts and oiliness. Without the harshness that some anti-blemish products can cause. The products in the range contain both Salicylic Acid and Niacin (Vitamin B3) which can help give you a clearer and healthier complexion. They are also SLES and Paraben free.

The products in this range are:

Purifying Cleansing Wash  RRP £7.99

Purify and Refresh Facial Scrub RRP £8.99

Pore Purifying Clay Mask RRP £9.99

Anti Blemish Clear and Correct Serum RRP £16.99

For the last 6 weeks I have been using both the Purifying Cleansing Wash and Pore Purifying Clay Mask. I have say that I absolutely love both products. My skin is smoother and my breakouts have somewhat diminished. The smell of both of these products are lovely especially the Cleansing Wash which is infused with Elderflower. My oiliness is also not as bad which is great because prior to using these products it looked like I had gone overboard with the moisturiser within a few hours of washing my face! Also I do notice a tingling sensation when I first apply the Clay mask but within a couple minutes as it starts to dry, the sensation disappears. I also like that the clay mask is easy to rinse off. And it doesn’t leave any residue like many other face masks I have tried before.

I would definitely recommend these products to anyone who is struggling with getting their blemishes under control and also if you suffer from really oily skin.

Over the coming months I will be trying and reviewing other Super Facialist’s products from the Vitamin C, Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid collections.

Have you tried any products from Super Facialist’s collections? If so how did you find them?

The Art of Brick DC Super Heroes 

Is your Son or Daughter a huge Lego fan and do they love Batman or Superman? Are you an art lover and do you enjoy DC comics? Did you answer yes to any or all of these questions? Then Nathan Sawaya’s The Art of Brick® DC Super Heroes is definitely for you and your family!

Who is Nathan Sawaya?

Nathan Sawaya is an award wining artist who creates stunning large scale sculptures using Lego® bricks. He is the first contemporary artist to use Lego® as an art medium and his acclaimed touring exhibition, The Art Of The Brick®, continues to break attendance records globally.

What is ‘The Art of the Brick: DC Super Heroes all about?

The exhibition features sculptures of the most popular characters from DC comics such as Superman, Batman and Wonder-Woman. In fact, one area of the exhibition focuses on the most important theme in all comics, ‘Good’ versus ‘Evil’. There is even a fantastic sculpture of half of Batman’s face and half of Jokers’ face which is titled, ‘Necessary Evil’.

Our Visit

As a result of visiting the last The Art Of The Brick®, Ky really wanted to visit the new exhibition and to be honest so did I. So consequently our tickets were booked for Saturday 15th April 2017.

We arrived around 1:30pm but unlike the original exhibition it only took us about 25 minutes to see everything. You can watch some of our visit here.

Yes or no?

Unfortunately and I must be honest, Ky and I went with high expectations and were a little disappointed with the amount of sculptures on display. This exhibition is much smaller than the original. Yet this worked to our advantage as because it wasn’t as busy, it meant we could see each sculpture properly without feeling rushed!

In addition one more thing to note is that there is a shop and cafe at the end of the exhibition and you have to go through both to leave. Therefore, be prepared in terms of money as I found that most of the the items available were very expensive and not very unique at all. Most of the items you can get at a Lego Store or even online. Hence if you really have to buy something and knowing children they will want something, I would consequently suggest you set a budget and stick to it otherwise your purse or wallet will probably suffer!

In conclusion, if your a big DC comic fan and you absolutely love Lego® and art you should not miss this exhibition. All the sculptures will leave you in awe! Awe of how much time, energy and creativity goes into building these wonderful pieces of art!

All things considered the exhibition is definitely a good day out for the whole family!

Day Out Arsenal Stadium Tour |

Day Out: Arsenal Stadium Tour

Looking for a day out, then why not try the Arsenal Stadium Tour…..Ok first let me give you a bit of the back story!

I never really got into football until Ky took an interest in it! Many members of our family support different teams..I know strange but true! Then when Ky was about 6 he finally decided after watching one of their matches, that he was now an Arsenal supporter.

I have yet to take Ky to a match, but I thought seeing as his dream is to play for his beloved Arsenal, that it would be a good idea to actually see the stadium and have a visual idea of where one day he will be coming to work!

After speaking to a friend they informed me that the Arsenal Stadium do daily tours and that there is also a museum that you can go to and see some of Arsenal’s memorabilia.

With the summer holidays coming to an end I decided this would be a great way to end the holidays.

About the tour

There are different stadium tours available. Ky and I decided we would do the self guided audio tour. This tour allows you to go behind the scenes and explore areas such as the Director’s Box and the players tunnel using an audio visual guide handset.

Ticket Prices and Information

Adults = £20.00

Children (Under 16) = £10.00 (Must be accompanied by a full paying adult.)

Infants (Under 5) = Free

OAP’S and Students = £15.00

Family Ticket (2 adults & 2 Children) = £50.00

Group bookings are also available. Groups of 15+ will receive a 10% discount. Groups of 30+ will need to email or call the Arsenal Stadium Tours helpline to book tickets.

Tours are available Monday – Saturday 9:30am to 17:00 and Sunday 10:00am to 15:00pm. Some days the tours may be unavailable due matches being played.

Check here for dates of the tour closures

All tour tickets include free entry into the museum. However if you want to only visit the museum you can just purchase tickets at £10 for adults and £7 for children.

Unfortunately Ky and I never had time to go to the museum after the tour. We decided that we would come back another day and visit the museum.

I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone who is an Arsenal fan or even a football fan who has never had the opportunity to go to a game in a stadium like the emirates. I would advise though, to allow yourself enough time to do the tour and visit the museum. The tour took Ky and I about 1 hour and 30 mins.
