Soap & Glory - No Clogs Allowed

Hi guys!
I started using Soap & Glory's - No Clogs Allowed! face mask once a week to clear my pores and keep my skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated. Technically, the product isn't actually mine as I stole my sisters to see what it was like before I spent nine odd pounds on it. I've used it for 3 weeks in a row and my skin is feeling so soft! The mask is self heating and its a sort of scrub at the same time. You put the product on your face and then use warm water to rub the mask around your face allowing the scrub to do its work. I do this for about a minute and a half and then rinse it off with warm water and my flannel to dab the product away. This works really well for me and I think I have a slight obsession with self-heating face masks. The bottle does say that you can leave the mask on for 3-5 minutes for a deeper clean, which I am yet to do, but I presume the mask begins to go hard and works more like a face mask.
After I use this product I do find that my face burns in small patches which is weird, but I'm not entirely sure if this is the desired effect. My skin is not left dry and is very soft so I'm not too sure what the burning means,   I hope its meant to happen but I'm no expert so hey ho.
I do really love this Soap and Glory product, surprise surprise, but it doesn't have the traditional smell of their normal products which saddened me a little because to be honest, its the main reason I buy this range of products. That's really my only complaint about this product, oh and the fact that you need to shake it vigorously before pouring it into the palm of your hand because otherwise all the warming liquid comes out and the scrub part of the product doesn't, its very annoying.
Overall though I think I may have to purchase my own tube of No Clogs Allowed because it does wonders for my skin and it proves a good product until I can afford something from a higher end brand.
I'd rate this product an 8/10 , it lost 2 points due to the un-Soap&Glory smell.

Calvin Klein Lipsticks - Orange Too & Eros

Eros (left), Orange Too (Right)
I came home from Sixth Form today to the best surprise - my Calvin Klein lipsticks had been delivered *thank god for Amazon*. I ordered them last week when I was bored in Sixth Form and was browsing on Amazon for an Orange lipstick. I came across this company selling these Calvin Klein lipsticks for around £3 and I couldn't resist. They are the older lipsticks, but still! I was a bit speculative about whether these were going to be knock-off's or whether they would be damaged, because the price was so low, but I was proved wrong! 
They arrived in fairly good condition - they weren't sealed but they weren't used when I opened them. The colours were so pigmented when I swatched them - on the swatches I did go over the colour twice because that's what I do on my lips anyway.

The colours I bought were Eros and Orange Too - the orange was slightly more red than I was looking for but I don't even care, I'm still so impressed with the price I paid. There isn't a huge selection of these lipsticks available on Amazon, maybe due to the fact Calvin Klein have released new lipsticks in a new packaging and there are not many of these discontinued ones available, I'm really not sure (I haven't done my research oops).

I really recommend these lipsticks - they're not heavy and they're very pigmented. They do have a slight sheen to them so if you're not fond of lipsticks that have a sheen - don't buy these!

I rate these a 9/10 because they're just a bargain!
