REVIEW | Wheesht skincare

In the beginning of January, I received two items from a new Scottish based natural skincare brand called Wheesht. After a brief discussion on my skin type, Kelly, the owner sent me over a sample pouch of Moroccan Detox Clay Mask along with a very generous sized sample jar of Mango Moisture Balm Cleanser and Mask. You can use these products on their own or in combination.

Before I get in to reviewing the products individually, I really liked the packaging. The Mango Moisture Balm Cleanser and Mask was sealed with an anti tamper label for hygiene and the Moroccan Detox Clay Mask was presented in a pouch that declared what it was with the branding all over it. Through and through it was a good first impression to open up. I also love the brand ethic as 25p from selected sales will go towards providing safe drinking water in Cambodia for up to 20days.

22 goals

I really need to get some more scheduled drafts out, there is so much that I need and want to post about that I am seriously starting to back up, you may have already seen my 22 post all about my birthday and seen that I already have some blog related goals that I haven’t even started on and I have added to the problems already with another 2000 photos and several new lipsticks.

I am not a huge resolution person, my birthday is too early in the new year to stick to a diet and I am too excited for it to stick to anything religiously, so I set myself goals for the new year of age ahead as the year is boring after the holiday season and my birthday.

This year I am going to either be adventurous or stupid and set myself 22.. god help me.

  1. To be more determined
  2. Find solutions to problems
  3. Follow through on goals
  4. To not give up so easily
  5. Stress less
  6. Have a positive outlook for the future
  7. Be more jolly and positive (swear this is the same as #6)
  8. De-clutter everything
  9. Eat better (breakfast crisps are great when you are 18)
  10. Have a proper skincare routine and stick to it
  11. Take up a new hobby
  12. Continue learning Turkish (I can manage an extremely basic conversation now)
  13. Save £1000
  14. Go one month (minimum) without buying new makeup, this will probably be the month Huda or Urban Decay release something
  15. Open up a bit more
  16. Learn something new and actually take a course in it
  17. Give my wardrobe a diet
  18. Engage more with the blogging community
  19. Try and wear less makeup
  20. Find a way to help others more
  21. Learn to cook from more recipes
  22. Actually commit to this list and report back in a years time!

The first seven goals were input from my boyfriend, which is kind of sad – he is definitely the bright and cheery to my miserable and dark yang!

I really hope I can stick to these and then reflect back on them and see how much I have done in a year. It is always a good idea to write down your goals and objectives so that you are more committed to them and they hold a greater meaning to you.

Do you set yourself goals for your new year of age ahead? Let me know in the comments below!

Love and (high)light✌
