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[...]

Evening Skincare Routine – February 2019

*This a loooong post with lots of products mentioned, so to err on the safe side let's cover all eventualities: PR Samples/Existing Brand Relationships/Gifted/Aff. Links* I used to share my skincare routines quite regularly on here, but it's been absolutely ages because I've been mixing and matching for so long that I didn't feel comfortable talking about one routine, just to drastically change it a few days or weeks later.  This routine is one I[...]

Obagi C-Therapy Night Cream

If you've read my blog for any length of time then you'll know that I am a total, utter and complete convert to the astoundingly transformative Obagi skincare line; honestly, if you have tricky skin in any way and have worked your way through hoards of skincare, prepare to invest (as Obagi aren't cheap) and get yourself on an Obagi system as it will change everything.  I've tried a few products from the range and there are three keepers that I wi[...]

Mary Kay Clear Proof Skincare for Acne-Prone Skin

I'm not sure I've ever featured Mary Kay, which is crazy as it's the sort of brand I think you and I would really like; it's attractively packaged, innovative and generally pretty interesting, so I've no idea why it's eluded a blog feature for so long.  Today that all changes as I wanted to share with you a look a the  new Mary Kay Clear Proof skincare range.  I haven't tried it - I've literally only just received it - as at the moment I get so[...]

Skincare Tweaks: Great Products for Personalising your Skincare Routine

Ever since I developed a passion for skincare, I've often found myself creating an almost ideal routine that suits my skin perfectly, but it's always missing something; it either needs to be slightly more hydrating, a little more spot-fighting, a tad more calming...you get the picture.  With that in mind, I've put together a few great ranges and products that are brilliant for tweaking your routine, that'll hopefully make that minor adjustment ra[...]

Mask Monday: Formula 10.0.06 Three Times Sublime

Urgh! I have already written an upbeat and enthusiastic post about this mask, but a blog glitch lost it so I'm having to start again - so annoying! The Formula 10.0.06 range is a collection of products designed specifically with problem skin in mind.  I've got a few that I'm working through at the moment with a mostly positive experience, but I thought I'd start with something nice and easy to fit into your skincare routine, the Three Times Sub[...]

Mask Monday: Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask

It feels like absolutely ages since I've written up a Mask Monday post, and having checked, it's almost 2 months, so it actually is ages! I had to start the 2017 Mask Monday series with the Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask as it's absolutely brilliant and well worth sharing. I have a weird relationship with sheet masks as I have to really like them to want to keep using them, but I'll definitely be picking up a pack of these as they[...]

New Year’s Resolution: Sort My Skin Out

I don't even want to look back at last year's resolutions as I'm sure they'll just provide me with a list of failures, and are likely to be similar to the ones I aim for this year, but I really, really want to try again! My skin is a real issue for me - as regular readers will know - so I've made a real effort to attack it from all sides and these are the three things I'll be focusing on: Medication - the only time in my adult life that my[...]

Mask Monday: Superfacialist Salicylic Acid Anti-Blemish Clay Mask

When I'm having a breakout, there are a few key products that I always, always reach for, and the Superfacialist Salicylic Acid Anti-Blemish Clay Mask is definitely one of them as it's such a great product for breakouts, especially those that are a little chaotic and need to be put in their place! I think the Superfacialist range is one of the best high street skincare ranges available, I just wish there were more products. The Superfacia[...]

Bea Skin Care Vitamin Infused Konjac Sponges

There is just something about a good Konjac Sponge that I find extremely appealing; I think it's the fact that they're so basic and simple, yet thorough and effective - I find the ease of them so lovely and charming! The Bea Skin Care Vitamin Infused Konjac Sponges were of particular interest to me as I love the idea of a product that's infused with skin-loving properties, although, obviously, it's difficult for me to assess how effective and impa[...]

Three Great Serums for Tricky Skin

"Tricky Skin" is how I regularly describe my skin type as it really is tricky; it's such an effort to balance as it's very prone to dryness - right now I feel as if it might crack if I make any sudden movements, and this is after a night of some serious skin hydration - but it's also very prone to breakouts.  If I can get the balance just right, then it is quite amazing, as my skin very suddenly becomes bouncy, spot-free and just generally lovely[...]
