Beauty Tips & Tricks | How to Remove Blackheads

How to remove blackhead using PVA glue

Blackheads, have been a major issue with me when it come to skin care. I am bit embarrassed to tell you all but my blackhead use to be so bad that I started to get dark patches all over my skin because of them as I didn't know how to get rid of them or to get them out of my pores.

Blackhead Pores Remover Stripes did nothing for me except wasting time and money. They seemed so easy to put on wait for 15 mins and pull off but gave me no results not even a single blackhead was removed.
Really disappointed.

The only Blackhead Pore Strip that did work for me was the Montagne Jeunesse Natural Charcoal Nose Pore Strips this blackhead remover stripe really did its job. The charcoal really pulled out all the nasty blackhead out of my pores and kept them at bay. They come 3 in one pack and lasted me for one month as I don't have blackhead just on my nose but partially on my cheeks and chin as well , so I used 2 strip at one time and I am good for one month.

Now coming back to Pakistan I could not find the  Montagne Jeunesse Natural Charcoal Nose Pore Strips
And The horror of blackhead started to grow back again.

When in a search to figure out any other way I could get rid of my blackheads I came across an article talking about PVA glue as blackhead remover .

Why didn't I think about this before ?
I don't know?
But as soon as I knew about it I knew I had to try it for myself and share my experience with you all.

And you would have guessed by now that it surely did work,

              PVA glue for blackhead removal works and it amazing.

Peace at last.

I was so nervous to try this at first ; glue on the face doesn't seem normal does it ? No ? I knew it. But I just had to try it out to get rid of these nasties.

But no more now, when ever I find my skin getting a bit on the griddy side i just apply the PVA glue on the area wait for the glue to dry and peel off. All my blackhead come on the dried stripe without causing any pain. Of course if you have some facial hair that will cause a bit of pain but nothing excruciating.

How I remove my blackheads with PVA glue? 

Removing blackhead can be a very relaxing thing, its almost a spa like experience for me atleast. I feel like it the time to really pamper your skin and get it to a fresh clean start.

My blackhead removal process takes about 30 to 40 mins at the max, I try to remove my blackhead on day when I have nothing much to do or if I want to pamper myself.

1) I start off with a cleanser , which ever one I am using usually it the Clean and Clear facial cleanser as it has salicylic acid in it.

2) Then taking my favorite exfoliator ST.IVE Apricot Scrub for Blemish &Blackhead control, I exfoliate my skin to get rid of any dead skin.

3) Following up with Clean & Clear blackhead clearing cleanser-oil free to soak in any extra dirt soaking in my pores to get my skin as clean as possible.

4) I then again use my Clean and Clear facial cleanser with warm water to open up my pore one more time.

5) Then I apply my PVA glue evenly wherever I need it and wait for it to dry.

6) After the glue dries , I peel off the glue and enjoy all the nasty blackhead sitting on the dries glue pieces.

7 )After this process I take the Clean & Clear blackhead clearing cleanser-oil free toner with my cotton and cover my face where ever I applied the glue so that the salicylic acid can get into my clean pores and stop from blackhead from producing more.

8) After that I apply my very favorite moisturizer Olive Oil to put in good oil in my pores and seal in the deal.

And that is about it.

It may sound much but trust me this way is the way I find works the best to get each and every blackhead out of my pores and keep it at bay.
All of this is worth it and you will see after each time your blackhead will come back very slowly.

Hope you all reading this post found this helpful.

And I will talk to you all very soon next week.

Till then Take Care :)

Beauty| Review | The Sweet Touch Water Resistance Lengthening Mascara

Hi you guys how is 2014 treating you ? Going good, really hope and wish you all a very blessed 2014.

Today I have a review for you all and it's about the most fabulous beauty category.


Mascara is a makeup must have product. Every girl needs one , even the one who doesn't even wear makeup.The mascara open up the eye and make one look put together even when they are not.

I am a huge mascara fan girl, it one of the first thing I started with when beginning my beauty journey .

Now after not finding my love Nivea mascara which is absolutely amazing waterproof and give amazing length and volume.That mascara had everything in it which a mascara needs,MY HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT. It does take time to remove but easily come off with Vaseline-mention in this post right here.

Anyway, after not finding the Nivea mascara in Pakistan I was now on a hunt for the next good mascara, if not similar and I was introduced to the Sweet Touch Water Resistance Lengthening Mascara.

I love waterproof mascara as I have oily lids and non-waterproof tend to smear on me so waterproof is my way to go.

The Sweet Touch Water Resistance Lengthening Mascara comes in a dark bright purple  packaging super cute to look at.

Sweet Touch Water Resistance Lengthening Mascara does a wonderful job at lengthening. After wearing this mascara for the first time I was total impressed, its gives volume to the lashes and doesn't clump which is always good.Although I don't mind little clumpy eyelashes.

For the first application this look brilliant and the mascara brush is also very nice as it coats the tiny lashes also.The brush on this mascara is something I really enjoy as it distribute the product on each and every lash and does get the mascara all over the eyes.

For the 2nd application this mascara does look a little clumpy, if you are not a fan of clumpy eyelashes you might have problem with this one.Sometimes the lashes could look a bit on the spidery side.

Now the part where I regret buying this Mascara, as you can see I love every aspect of this mascara.
Its voluminous, lengthening BUT its smears like no other mascara I have ever tried. It does just not only flake that you could just swipe off but as soon as you start blinking and going on with your day within two hour you will end up with a raccoon eye.Ahh sucha put off.

The picture you see below is just after 2 hour after and this is just the start it does get worse,sadly.

Sorry for bad lightening, it was late by the time I had to take picture.

The first night I applied this at the end of the night it looked like I have huge dark circles under my or I haven't slept for million of days.

Such a disappointment really. I was so happy when I used this for the first time and had such high hope but sadly it didn't follow through.

Would not recommend this to anyone unless you are a fan of dark under eye circle.

And this complete my review for The Sweet Touch Water Resistance Lengthening Mascara. Hop you found this post helpful and informative.

Dont forget to share this post with your friends and let them know to beware with this Sweet Touch Mascara.

Till then I will see you all next week with a new post :)

Take care,

Love Amna.

Snowflake background New Year Poster

I love when the new year start, its such a positive thing that with a new year beginning
we have so many plan in our head to do that year.So many dreams to achieve, so many life changing
thing we want to do, many achievement we want to achieve.

For my whole new years I have seen till now I don't know how many I have kept and how many I have failed to achieve pretty saddening stuff. But this 2014 I am making a new year resolution to keep my new year resolution and achieve what ever I want for myself.
Would be hard work .
 But for the 2015 it will be good to see that all those thing I wanted are now within me and in my lifestyle.

For this New Year I will be keeping 5 Resolution to really concentrate on them and not just overload myself with a huge list.

1. Have a active life : Due to my lack of health care I have became a total out of shape person.I have back problem which travel to my arm and creates lots pain.It sucks the energy out of me to do itsy bitsy work. And for my age back issue should not be issues at all. I want to be the active Amna I use to be in my childhood.So combating my illness and creating a strong body will be my 1rst goal. In the process loosing a bit of weight would not be bad at all:D but my main goal is to have i want to have a strong and active body.

2. Pray : Being a Muslim praying is the main pillar of our religion.It make us a better Muslim and improve our life to the fullest.It makes our character and give us hope for our future-to me at least.Whenever I pray I feel so relax and in peace , I know my creator is listening to my prayers and  really He is the only one we need in our lives. I have seen so many obstacles in my life, so many people go and just leave when you really need them. Whom you think will be beside you in  your trouble times but in reality they are nothing,sorry to be harsh but I have had so many  heartbreaks that are unbearable at some point and the worst thing is that are caused by my loved ones.But when I cherish these heartbreak as I have learnt so many lessons from them that I cant even complain.And my heartbreak have taught me that in life the only support you need is from Allah. Ones He is on your side no obstacle can shatter you.
You have a strong soul.
And you never feel alone or scared for the future.
You know He is there listening to you , watching you, and taking care of you.    
So basically I want to go ahead and with my strong body I want to have a strong inner soul and have  a connection with my Allah and have a blessed 2014.I have seen so many blessing when I pray and
I want my 2014 blessed with many things.

3. Blogging : Blogging has been such a positive aspect in my life for the year of 2013. I feel so blessed         having so many of you read my blog and support me out here.I can't thank all of you enough to take time out of your busy life and read what I have to write. So for the year 2014 I want to bombard you all with more fun,exciting,new post. Being on a schedule and sticking to it would one thing I need to focus on.
To be precise I want to post weekly 1 post in a week. I know its not a lot but it something I can manage.

4. Do more Art: Art is something I truly love , it's something very important to me and I need to start doing  it again.I stopped for a such a time now so I want my hobby to begin again and share it with you all also.

5. Keep my 2014 Resolution and achieve them at the end of the year : As simple as that. I want to    fulfill and be happy on that I achieved something for myself, that would be very a delightful thing.

And those are my 5 2014 New Year Resolutions very achievable, but difficult at the same time.

May this year brings all the joy and happiness in your life and may you blossom like a beautiful flower.
