DIY: Blemish killer stick

Hello everyone!

Today I have another beauty DIY for you.  My skin has been fairly clear until a couple of days ago when it started flaring up again (only a couple of pimples, but still).  The problem is, I've been so busy lately that I didn't have time to pamper my skin with one of my usual homemade masks.  So, I found myself constantly reaching for my tea tree oil and rubbing a drop on my blemishes.  I figured I should make a DIY treatment that is quick to make and easy to use.

The DIY blemish killer stick  is the easiest thing you can make to get rid of pimples, especially if you don't have the time to prepare a DIY mask, apply it, let it sit for 20-30 minutes, etc.  

DIY blemish killer stick

You will need:
  • 3/4 tbsp coconut oil 
  • 1-3 drops tea tree oil
  • an empty lip balm tube
Both coconut oil and tea tree oil are naturally antibacterial and anti-fungal.  These properties help with reducing  redness and puffiness and fighting bacteria.

Method:

Scoop 3/4 of a tablespoon coconut oil and melt it on a stove top burner.
Add in just a few drops of tea tree oil (no more than 3).

Mix to blend and pour into the lip balm tube.

Store the tube in the fridge so it  doesn't melt and use as needed as a homemade spot treatment.  So far this DIY blemish killer stick is working well for me!
Other natural ingredients that fight blemishes include: apple cider vinegar (ACV), baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), lemon juice, honey, green tea, witch hazel and rose water.    

Search the blog for any of the above mentioned ingredients, for more information and beauty DIY treatments. You can also search for more info on coconut oil and tea tree oil!

Majestical Jewelry review + giveaway!

Hello everyone!

As you may have noticed, I changed the blog description to "A BEAUTY blog with a little taste of FASHION", this is my first fashion related blog post!

Majestical Jewelry was so kind to send me a pair of adorable earrings for review. 


These are very good quality earrings that look quite heavy, but they are lighter than they look, so you don't need to  worry about sagging earlobes.  I really like them because they can be worn all year round with almost any outfit!

Today I paired them with a mint lace top (with golden studs on the collar), a pair of black trousers and black heels.


Scroll down  to see more photos and enter the giveaway for a chance to win a $10 gift card to spend on anything you want at Majestical .  They have so many great pieces to choose from.  You will find styles that fit any taste or budget!


Majestical  is offering Cosette's Beauty Pantry readers a promotional code for $15.00 off any order of $55.00 or more!  The code is 15DOLLARSOFF.





Two winners will be chosen.  Each winner will receive a $10.00 gift card.


Leave a comment telling me what's your favourite Majestical piece.  Good luck everyone!

March favourites

Hello everyone!

It's time for another favourites post.  These are four of my favourite beauty products from last month!



Garnier Fructis Oil Repair 3 Ultra Nourishing Mask
I tried a bunch of different hair masks and this is one of my favourites.  This hair mask is enriched with 3 active oil; olive, avocado and shea-butter, to nourish and repair dry, damaged and dull hair.  I use it as a deep conditioner and I really love it.  After washing it out, my hair feels soft and moisturised.

I also love the Garnier Fructis Henna and Blackberry Vinegar hair mask and currently I am trying out their mask for curly hair.  And if you are looking for a DIY hair treatment,  why don't you try my latest DIY hair mask? 

Nivea Deodorant Pure & Natural Action
I love this deodorant because it's aluminium-free and lets the skin breathe.  It doesn't clog pores and it claims to offer 48 hour protection.  I also like the delicate jasmine scent.  I don't like using deodorants with strong, overwhelming fragrances.

Maybelline Forever Strong Pro (#76 French Manicure)
This is the only nail polish I wore last month - and that explains the lack of NOTD posts ;).  It has a curved brush which gives you perfect precision and it's enriched with calcium, iron and silica, for stronger nails.  This polish also gives my nails a break from bright and dark colours that can stain the nails.  

This is what one coat of #76 looks like on my nails.

Maybelline Master Shape Brow Pencil (Deep Brown)
I love this brow pencil because it's so easy to apply.  I apply clear mascara/brow gel on first, this acts as a primer and makes the pencil last all day.  Then I apply the brow pencil in hair-like strokes and blend colour with the comb on the other side.
