Giveaway & Sudocrem Skin Care Cream Review

I'm gonna get straight to the point with this review, when Sudocrem first sent me a sample of their skin care cream I was unimpressed by it. The only way I can describe their packaging is blah and the notion that its handbag size seems ridiculous to me; when would I ever reach into my bag for a tube of thick white cream to smoother over a full face of makeup? 
I was also scared to apply this to blemishes, in my head something which appears to be heavy and moisturising would only make my spots worse right? After being assured on twitter of its wonderful properties I braved applying it over one spot and to my surprised the spot almost disappeared completely over night. 
OK so as a spot treatment it really works, more so than most. I don't know how or why it works but I don't care because right now there isn't a blemish on my face :)
That still led me to question why would someone buy this over a different treatment that already works for them? Its £1.99 for 30g, my previous treatment of choice retails for around £4.40 or 15ml. An absolute bargain!
Remember the cream is heavy so you need to apply it very sparingly. If you put to much on it makes your skin look and feel greasy. One more thing I liked about this product is the fact that I can wear it under makeup. So many products claim to be 'invisable' but dry up and flake off leaving my makeup looking patchy. This sinks in a bit like a moisturiser so works great under a primer or foundation. 
If you buy this product you won't get a sense luxury and yes, the product occasionally gets stuck in the tube; but you will get a simple, effective treatment for your blemishes at a good price. What more could a girl ask for? 


Sudocrem were over generous to me, they sent me 3 tubes. Two will last me forever so I'm giving one away! To enter just leave a comment below telling me what your favourite spot treatment is! The contest will close on the 29st August and anyone can enter, I shall be posting the prize myself to please leave your twitter/email address in the comments so I can contact you if you win. 

Good Luck,

Onna

FOTN: I turned 20! :)

So yesterday was my 20th birthday and to celebrate with my blogging friends I thought I'd show you a few snaps from my birthday party. Also thank you so much for all the "Happy Birthday's" on twitter! Made my day! I had the most amazing night and all my friends are little stars! We had pre-drinks at mine, including vodka jelly (yum) then proceeded to get even more drunk in town. I've been requested to make a video/blog post on what I got so I'll do that a little later on.

Chezza Hair


After watching Sara's Youtube Video on how to use velcro rollers, it reminded me how much I used to love mine, so on Saturday night I go out my straighteners and my rollers and created some massive hair! I straightened each piece before I put the rollers in so they would cool into a nice shape. I left them in for about an hour and my god did I get a lot of volume. I sometimes forget how thick my hair is.



If you're stuck for 'evening hair' ideas I'd definitely recommend velco rollers, they are so easy and they give you plenty of time to do your makeup and have a cheeky drink :)


Just a quick twitpic of how I place the rollers in my hair.


Hope you all had a good weekend,

Onna
