It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like…(picture heavy)

Off-Topic: LLETZ Procedure for CIN / Dyskaryosis

27 October 2014

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (bespoke trio)

23 October 2014

A few weeks ago I attended an event at Liberty in London and I was early.  There was nobody around to stop me and I was in the beauty hall surrounded by some of the prettiest products to exist that cannot be found locally.  Logic disappeared and was replaced by Beauty Junkie Rationale: What if […]

Liz Earle Superskin Moisturiser with Natural Neroli

21 October 2014

Neroli seems to be an oil that my skin really agrees with as I still find the Superfacialist Neroli Oil the most balancing for my skin as it seems to have a generally calming effect.  Having said that, when the newest product arrived from the brand, the Liz Earle Superskin Moisturiser with Natural Neroli, I […]

Elemis Pro-Collagen Super System

Elemis Pro-Collagen Super System

20 October 2014

After a lifetime of spot-battling it seemed my skin was finally starting to relent, but instead dehydration was taking its place.  However, I would always pick dehydration over spots since, in theory, the former can be treated with high doses of moisture, right?

An Introduction to Cosme-De.com plus Discount Code

14 October 2014

I think all beauty junkies have a bit of a soft spot for the occasional bit of Asian beauty as it’s such a vastly different market to the one we’re used to in the UK.  It’s quirky, often cute and very interesting to be involved in; reading ingredients list is often quite the eye opener […]
