My Honest Review: Quick Fix Facials

I have been using Quick Fix Facials for about 2-3 months and I have to say I am very impressed. I have very problematic skin (As I have discussed on Victoryforu) so to find something that worked for my skin was extremely helpful.

These three are my personal favourites and are the ones that are almost finished – deffo need to reorder soon. I also love the Overnight Miracle Mask which smells divine!

Calming Clay Mask – I used this on my problematic areas around my mouth and nose which are the most sensitive.

Collagen Lift Mask – Perfect to use a night before a big event, this is actually what I used to get ready for the Oxford Fashion Studio shows in London.

Mega Moisture Mask – I used this over the problematic areas as well which helped to replenish the moisture lost after a long day.

As I have mentioned before, my skin is one of my biggest insecurities. To find something natural, cruelty-free and affordable that actually helps my skin to look better is so good. I highly recommend purchasing Quick Fix Facials especially if you’re a teen on a budget like me.

I also recommend multi-masking, especially if you have combination skin like me. My current situation is Exfoliating Scrub on my nose and forehead,  Collagen Lift on my cheeks, Anti-blemish Mud under my eyes and Mega Moisture everywhere else.

Is my skin perfect? Not by any means. But I have noticed a glow that wasn’t on my skin before. My biggest recommendation for using the Facials is finding an exfoliating sponge to open your pores before use and to wash it off after use. It really helped to produce a better result for me.

There isn’t a product in this range that I wouldn’t recommend. There is truly something for everyone! Make sure you check Quick Fix Facials out now. Free UK delivery when you spend over £10 and each Facial is £4.99… I don’t think I need to persuade you anymore 😂😂😂

Just go get it!

Throwback to LFWM January 2017

As it is only 10 days until London Fashion Week Mens, I thought I would recap what happened last season!

I enjoy the way that menswear is changing and is getting brighter and more innovative. I am all for this change. I hope to see more of that in the next 10 days and throughout the whole of this Menswear season from June – July.

#TBTOFS Take me back – Oxford Fashion Studio’s New York Collections

Last season in New York, Oxford Fashion Studio opened in such a bold way. I will be running through my favourite fashion moments of NYFW.

Starting with Sabina Saga, (Below) her SS17 Dynasty collection was absolutely show-stopping.

In an Instagram post, Sabina Saga wrote about her latest collection:

“I am so happy to announce the official release of my new collection inspired by my Ethnic Roots, made in honor of the country where I was born-Kazakhstan. This is a great honor, but also a huge responsibility to represent my Homeland at international contests. Thanks everyone for the love and support! ❤️”

Sabina Saga’s talent, passion and sheer creativity makes her designs even more captivating. Her use of 3D printing is highly commendable and I look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.

I loved writing for Urban Zulu but most of all, I love what they stand for.

In the interview I conducted with Papy Kaluw, he said:

“Urban Zulu as a brand actually has a mandate, I am a little bit religious, I believe that God has assigned me to do this, to bring positivity back to being black. Every time black is mentioned, it is always to do with negative stuff, if Africa is mentioned, it’s almost always something negative. For me, New York Fashion Week is one of the greatest platforms, we’re bringing down Black Angels. When we talk about Angels, it is positive and anytime black is mentioned it is almost always negative. So the Black Angels is to show the positivity of being black which is Africa. That is the inspiration!”

And lastly one of my favourites was Deanna Michel!

It was a pleasure to be able to interview Deanna M. Laster who creates sophisticated and minimalist designs.

Deanna described the Deanna Michel Woman as:

“The DeannaMichel Woman is mature yet fun-loving, professional yet free-spirited, bohemian yet chic. She is a trendsetter who loves to make a bold statement when entering a room.”


I am extremely excited to see what Oxford Fashion Studio has to offer this season.

Victoryforu’s top 10 – American Music Awards

Here is a rundown of my favourite AMA looks:

10

Gigi in an off the shoulder lace dress from Roberto Cavalli

This is one of my least favourite of Gigi Hadid’s looks of the night, however, this Roberto Cavalli dress was definitely a brilliant start to a night of amazing outfits from Gigi Hadid.

9

Shawn Mendes always looks cool on the red carpet. This is not the best I have seen him look but I think that they outfit suits his relaxed personality. And besides, he has a whole music career ahead of him to experiment with different shades and textures. Shawn always wears darker colours well, I would just like to see him branch out a bit more.

8

This short and sweet number from Rocsi was an excellent style choice which was also easy for her to move around in and to do what she does best; Present!

7

Gigi in Embellished two-piece from Julien Macdonald - Hailey Baldwin also wore this in his spring 2017 show

Both Julien Macdonald looks were some of my favourites from his Spring 2017 show earlier this year and Gigi absolutely slayed both outfits.

6

Lady Gaga’s simple yet striking white outfit was truly brilliant but nothing in comparison to her voice. Her prior work with Tony Bennett really showcases the power and beauty of her voice.

5

This was the dress that everyone left remembering Gigi Hadid in. Why? Because it is so striking. From the colour to the cut, this is a dress that seriously brought the house down.

4

The ever beautiful Karlie Kloss looked effortlessly exquisite. And the hair flick in this video… This is why we call Karlie Kloss a Super Model!

3

I couldn’t decide with these two, I love their outfits from Zuhair Murad equally.

2

Her speech touched my heart and her dress made me smile. Even though this is a simple dress, She wore it with such elegance and such grace that she completely deserves this spot.

And my favourite outfit of the night was…

Hailee Steinfield

Elie Saab has done it again with another sensational design. I love everything about this romper, The colour, The sparkle, The shape, Everything!


Those are my top 10! Do you agree or disagree? Let me know below.
