Cica in Skincare – Why You Need It and What to Try

Cica is an ingredient that's suddenly become very relevant in my skincare routine over the past year ago, as it's one of those ingredients that really does what it promises to do.  Centella Asiatica, or Cica for short, is a medical herb that's regularly featured in Asian skincare, particularly many of the most reputable K-Beauty brands, and it's an ingredient that's slowly starting to find it's way into more of our high street ranges too, with No[...]

I really am so excited about these products as I think they're a great[...]

Beauty Pie Uplifting Microcurrent Face Roller

Occasionally something will show up online that I know is going to cause a lot of excitement, which is exactly what I thought would be the case with the Beauty Pie Uplifting Microcurrent Face Roller when it first popped-up on their Instagram feed.  Consequently I kept my eye on the Beauty Pie site to see when it would become available, then last week, Caroline Hirons posted about its imminent arrival and I started refreshing the "accessories" pag[...]

*PR Samples/Gifted/Aff. Links* [lookbook id="25836" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] Alex at I Heart Beauty has phenomenal skin.  Every time I see her I ask what it is she's doing, and she always preaches the power of a decent retinol, then every time I promise myself I'll get regular with retinol in my routine and it never happens.  Then, during an Obagi consultation last year when I was getting itchy feet with my routin[...]

Botanicals Cleanse Melts

[lookbook id="25681" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] *PR Samples/Gifted/Aff. Links* I wouldn't say Botanicals are a huge brand that you see absolutely everywhere, but they've certainly built themselves a reputation so that you regularly see people raving about their products on social media.  Therefore, I was excited to get my hands on their cult Cleanse Melts.  There are currently two Botanicals Cleanse Melts available, N[...]

Dr Dennis Gross Spotlite Acne Treatment Device

*PR Samples/Gifted/Aff. Links* Occasionally I get a product that I'm really excited to share with you guys, and the Dr Dennis Gross Spotlite Acne Treatment Device is one of them.  This is such a brilliant executed product that is just perfect in every sense; most importantly, it works really well, it's very low maintenance and it isn't too expensive either.  I'm a massive believer in the astounding powder of LED Light Therapy and I am very strict[...]

Bioeffect OSA Water Mist

[lookbook id="25551" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] *PR Sample/Gifted/Aff. links* I think hydrating mists are one of those luxury skincare items that aren't necessarily essential to your average skincare routine, but the right one can be such a joy to use, that I always tend to have several on the go for various needs; I love to use them after a shower/bath, after a mask, when using a facial oil and more recently, after an[...]

If you haven't come across The Inkey List range of skincare before, they're a bu[...]
