Time Bomb Complexion Cocktail with a Shot of Chlorophyll

Time Bomb Complexion Cocktail with a Shot of Chlorophyll

01 October 2014

I’m extremely annoyed with myself for writing off these fabulous Complexion Cocktails from Time Bomb when they first arrived in my life for being inappropriate for my skin type, as they are exactly what my skin has been crying out for.  I think I assumed that they’d conflict with my skin issues due to the […]

Dermalogica PreCleanse: Oil vs Wipes

Dermalogica PreCleanse: Oil vs Wipes

01 October 2014

I think the Dermalogica PreCleanse was my first introduction to double cleansing years ago when I was still relatively new to skincare (ish) and now there are two ways to use this infamous product, so I thought I’d share my thoughts on both just in case you’re unsure which one’s for you. Quick bit of […]

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum II

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum II

29 September 2014

I’ll start this post by saying that I don’t tend to do full reviews on eye treatments any more as I always have so much skincare going on at any one time that I don’t think I can give a fair review, so instead I’ll share my thoughts on the product itself rather than the long-term […]

New from Vichy: Idealia and Aqualia Thermal Serum

29 September 2014

There are a couple of new launches from Vichy as well as one product that’s not actually that new, but I haven’t talked about it before and I think it’s definitely worthy of a mention, so I’ll start with that! The Vichy Idealia Life Serum is a really interesting product as it’s designed to perfect […]

MasqueBar Sheet and Creme Masks

26 September 2014

If I have a few minutes spare for a bit of pampering I will always give myself a mask (or an at-home facial including several masks if I have quite a bit of time) so any new mask arrivals always pique my interest.  MasqueBar are a Korean brand of masks that are due to shortly […]

New from Orico: Streetwise Coco Spritz and Superseed Dry Vitamin Multi-Oil

25 September 2014

I’ll admit that up until I tried these two products I was unfamiliar with Orico, but both of these sprays have proved to be brilliant and useful, so it’s safe to say this has been a great introduction! The Streetwise Coco Spritz is a lovely, refreshing facial spritz in a fantastic spray that delivers a […]

Boots Give it a Go Daily

Apologies as I’m slightly late to the table with this promotion that Boots have been running for the month of September, but even though it ends in a few days, it’s still something you can get involved with at any time as it’s mostly about beauty inspiration which I think is something we can all […]

Off-Topic: Dodgy Smear Results and Severe Dyskaryosis

24 September 2014

A few weeks ago, I randomly decided to have a smear test done.  Literally I was just in the surgery with my son and I thought I’d make an appointment to have it done.  The following week I had it done and I was told I’d get the results in 14 days.  13 days later, […]

A little while ago I was sent my prescription of Dermalogica products, and I thought rather than spam your timelines with individual reviews, I’d share my thoughts on each product in this post; however I do have both versions of the PreCleanse so I’ll be doing a post on those soon.  The Dermalogica Face Mapping […]
