Facial Eczema – Seborrheic Dermatitis

Posted by Thatsgirly on June 18, 2009 - 10:54 pm

So I have suffered from eczema all my life but it was only until I was around 14 I started to get eczema on my face. As a teenagaer I found this really destressing and plastered my face in make up to cover it up (in hindsight it was probably making it worse!)  


I had a patch test when I was around 18 and I was told that I was allergic to nickel and lanolin (wools grease) which was actually quite a relief to find ingrediants to avoid! I checked the ingrediants of all the products I was using, I noticed my face wipes had lanolin in :-(  so I stopped using them and my skin started to clear up.  


Anyway years had passed and sometimes my face would be fine and other times I would get really bad flare ups (especially around exam time!). I would just bare through it and use hydrocorrisone when it was really bad (which does have side effects when used on a long term basis) and I just learned to live with it. I had given up with going to the doctor as each time he just kept giving me the same treatments!  

I’m not sure what spurred me on but I went to the doctors and usual doctor was not in so I saw the replacement. I told him my problems and he took one look at my face and said I know what you have got seborrheic dematitis. He explained that it was a condition that was very similar to dandruff where the skin is reacting to the yeast on my skin. I was told that there is no cure for this however he did prescribe me Daktacort which is a mix of hydracortisone and miconazole nitrate. He also recommended that I use aqueous cream as a facial wash to help it.

So I am going to start my treatment and I  will keep you updated in two weeks with the results.

Post soon xoxo

Tried and Tested – MAC cleansing Wipes

Posted by Thatsgirly on June 10, 2009 - 11:01 pm



Whilst browsing in my local Cosmetic Company store (which I absolutely love doing every weekend) I came across a excellent bargain – MAC cleansing wipes, 100 for £9.00! I decided this was a must buy and rushed to counter to pay.


In the evening I decided to try the cleansing wipes, I pulled the first wipe out and I noticed it felt quite different to the wipes I normally use (Simple wipes) and the size of the wipes were quite small. Once I removed all of my eye makeup I needed to pull out another one for the rest of my face! I soon decided that I  wasn’t so keen on the wipes, they are not as soft as I thought they would be and they also felt quite chemically. When I was using the wipe it felt like it was stripping too much of the natural oils from my face and left my face quite tight afterwards.


Although the cleansing wipes did the job and removed my makeup, I wasn’t happy with the way it left my skin feeling afterwards.  I love the MAC brand however not so keen on these cleansing  wipes!    

Have you ever tried the wipes? Let me know what you think!



Eyelash extensions

Posted by Thatsgirly on June 5, 2009 - 10:31 pm



In the last few weeks I have been considering eyelash extensions. I would love to have fab full eyelashes like Cheryl Cole and Eva Longeria


I know the process takes about 2-3 hours and can last up to 3 months with “top ups” needed every few weeks. The price range I have seen is between £50-£75 in my local salons.


I was just wondering if any of you have had eyelash extensions and if so were you happy with the results? Would you go back and  get them done again?? For those of you that haven’t had eyelash extensions would you ever consider it?   


I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences! © 2009 Copyrighted All Rights Reserved | Powered by WordPress
