Bravura London for Facial Scarring.

Heyyy, I thought I would let you know my first impressions on the skin company ‘Bravura London’ that specializes in treatments such as chemical peel solutions. This brand was recommended to me when I asked if anybody had any tips to get rid of facial scarring that has built up over the past eight years or so for me personallyย (photos below with and with and without makeup)- yep, I need more than a little exfoliation! I had never heard of Bravura at first and then after some research on their Facebook page and the website that I will link below, it was not hard to find many good reviews, ‘before and after’ photos, as well as a whole bunch of celebrities that can testify the benefits to using these products. It’s fair to say that I was quickly persuaded and purchased two bottles of the chemicals;ย glycolic (2%) and salicylic (10%) and an application brush. Coming to a total of just over ยฃ20, I thought this was simply amazing value for money if they actually work, and I have previously paid ยฃ100 for six sessions of chemical peels and I believe that this is the same product they used but in a smaller concentrate.

So after reading through the instructions and advice provided with the products, I have alternated between the two chemicals every other day and have repeated this 3 times so far, concentrating on the areas with the deepest scars for now. The liquid resembles a gel and is easy to apply and is pain free except a little tingle now and again in certain areas which is just a very slight itchy sensation. I haven’t experienced any after effects except a tiny patch of dry skin which didn’t even show under my makeup and although I’ve only used the products a handful of times, I can already see a small difference in my skin so I will be definitely be continuing with my routine. So far, so good for Bravura London and hopefully this will be the solution that will give me the confidence to go out without any foundation on once in a while! Let me know if you’ve tried any of the products and what you think?

Thanks for reading!

D.I.Y COFFEE SCRUB

Hi ! I’ve been seeing coffee scrubs posted all over Instagram and Pinterest for a while now, and have been wanting to try it out myself as it claims to have positive effects on scars, acne and cellulite (let’s not judge until we’ve tried it). Obviously I don’t expect it to work miracles but after researching the the individual purposes of the ingredients I can understand why it is supposed to work;

ground coffee– for reducing any swelling and redness and has toning properties

sugar– for exfoliation which increases blood flow

extra virgin olive oil– an excellent moisturiser

cinnamon– because it smells so damn good.

You can change the amount of each ingredient you use, depending on how exfoliating/moisturising/thick ย you want your scrub. I used; 3 heaped tsps of coffee, 3 tsps sugar, 2 tsps cinnamon and about 3 ‘glugs’ of olive oil and then realised this wasn’t enough when it came to applying, so make sure you don’t skimp if you want to keep the skin on your face !

I was going to have a shower while this was on my face anyway and got a little carried away, applying it to my whole body. It felt a little strange at first but after getting used to the sensation it was a lovely experience, especially on the elbows and legs I found! I now get why this is good for blood circulation and reducing cellulite (along with healthy eating and exercise of course-maybe I should work on those first…) ย as the scrub feels quite spikey but nice and I couldn’t believe how soft my skin was- reaaally soft. I know some people use this on damaged hair so I may as well give this a try too at a later date!

Overall, I would probably make this again if I was having a good pamper session, its quick, cheap and easy to make and the only con for me personally was all of the cleaning up afterwards (I got it up the walls and everything)! Thanks for reading-
