Pretty Hurts

Beyonce, Pretty hurts, pretty hurts lyrics, beyonce strong woman, media
 
 
Its the soul that needs the surgery.....so true, words that set off so many alarms for many people. This society that we live in makes us strive for perfection, something that is unrealistic and sets us up to fail. We have it shoved in our faces on a regular basis, getting a toned stomach, bigger is better, white straight teeth, long thick flowing hair, tanned skin etc. Its all just too much and as most people there comes a point as a person where you feel like you cant handle it anymore, where no matter what you do, say to yourself or think you feel like you aren't good enough, you should be smaller, have straighter teeth, less wrinkles, all these statements go through my head and I feel like I am stuck. As Beyoncé says "Pretty Hurts" and it sure does, there is so much pressure on people today, constantly in music videos where women have a certain look, celebrities look as "perfect" as can be, magazines put pressure on trying different ways to "fix" the look you already have. BUT the way we all look is beautiful, we are all beautiful, we are unique and should be proud of who we are, of what we look like, how we stand proud to be us for us is perfect just the way we are.
 
Just felt like I had to put how I was feeling down in a post....
 
Thanks for listening

Review: Derma V10

Hi Loveys!
 
*Here is a review of some scrumptious products I was lucky enough to review.
 
Derma V10 Body butters in Mango and Vanilla

Available from Home Bargains.
 
These body butters smell divine! I haven't stopped using them, hence why there isn't much product in the pictures below! They are rich and buttery, leaving the skin feeling soft and supple. Both smell exactly like the scent they say they are, vanilla smells sweet, mango smells like a Caribbean island! The scents last so long, I get comments whenever I wear them.

Derma V10 Rescue Oil
 
£1.00 from Poundland!
 
 
Derma V10 Rescue Oil states is an oil to help with ageing, scar tissue, blemishes, treatment and prevention of stretch marks, after sun treatment, before, during and after pregnancy, and dry dehydrated skin.

The oil can be massaged in or used as a bath oil, it contains Peach Kernel, Evening Primrose and Almond oil to name a few of the ingredients.
 
The oil has a nutty scent, it sinks into the skin without leaving an residue, I have a scar on my right arm and have used this oil on that area, it leaves my skin super soft. I haven't noticed it reduce but then I have had the scar for over 20 years! I love using this on my dry areas, it certainly moisturises on a deep level so if you suffer from dry skin this would be amazing for you. I would say this product is great for a skin treatment.
