SKINCARE: The Body Shop

If you followed me for a while.. Especially through Blogspot and recently moved to WordPress. You’ll know that, I do have a terrible skin demons, which is Acne and Blemishes. Blemishes is the hardest one to get rid of, it can take 3-4 months to a year. 3 months ago I purchased 4 products from the body shop that would at least make an improvement to my skin. During summer time, oils are building up and can clog your pores. I hope you’ll find my reviews useful.

TEA TREE NIGHT LOTION 30ml – £9.00

GOOD & NOT SO GOOD

  • Helps to improve appearance of blemish-damaged skin. Now it depends how big your blemish scars then it will take a long time to recover. Or if you have smaller blemishes it should clear up within a month and make sure you apply this after your toner. I will not recommend this product for extremely dry skin.
  • Leaves your skin mattify. For those people suffer from oily skin, this will improve your excessive sebum when taking during the nights and in the morning your skin feels great and mattified. If you decided to use this during the day honestly.. it will develop oils on some parts of your face depending on the the weather. 
  • Antibacterial action. 
  • This will not leave your skin clear and does not avoid any future blemishes or spot.
  • Will not hydrate your face, depending on your skin types. 
  • Takes a long time to see a difference. 
  • Strong smell.

ART: Marina Abramovic – ”Lovers” and ”The Artist is Present”

Love is such a natural thing for humans to be closer to one and another. Friends, Close friends, Relationship and Family. But this particular Art piece that move me by Marina Abramovic.(Abramovic is a Serbian and former Yugoslav artists based in New York. She is known for her Art performance.)

First piece 

”Lovers” Two artists, Ulay and Abramovic decided to end their relationship and to mark this with a spectacular performance.  This was the endpoint of their collaboration. After years of negotiation with the Chinese authorities, the artists got their permission to walk along the Great Wall of China. Which they started to walk from each different ends to finally meet in the middle to bid her goodbye.


It was such an amazing and emotional performance.  It is very rare for couples to end properly.

Second Piece

”The Artist is Present” A piece that the artist spend a mins of silent with a stranger. The exhibit went on for 3 months. During the video, it shows a surprising performance were her ex lover (Ulay) suddenly appeared in front of her who she had a relationship for a long time. After 30 years this was their first meeting.

What really move me from this performance, is that seeing her ex for the first time in over 30 years and her emotions start pouring down. She wasn’t able to show any emotions to anyone else but the stranger react towards her. But the moment of looking through her ex lover eyes. Is like looking back on the past and remember like it was yesterday of all the good and the bad memories.  It was powerful , I praise her that she manage to continue with the exhibition even her emotions cannot be hold.
