The Chemical Misconception – Should we avoid chemicals?

This is an opinion piece of my opinion as a Dr in Chemistry and the opinions of the scientists’ cited.   Throughout my career so far I have encountered many people, either in person or through articles in magazines, blogs or other media, that are either afraid of chemicals (chemophobia = fear of chemicals) or are people who dislike interfering with nature. Have you ever wondered, how did we go from chemistry and chemicals being considered magical and medicinal, toRead more

Glossybox February 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

February is the month of love and as I explained in the Birchbox and Look Fantastic unboxings, that’s a theme that can go really well with makeup and beautiful looks. As a result, I was hoping that the beauty boxes would utilise it, even if they don’t believe in Valentine’s day. It’s a nice excuse and a great theme and I was very disappointed that both Birchbox and Look Fantastic February had nothing to do with it. The items contained wereRead more

Look Fantastic Beauty Box February 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

After a slightly dissapointing Birchbox February, I had high hopes for the Look Fantastic February box. As I mentioned in the Birchbox February post, I was hoping for love themed beauty boxes this month. Sure, Valentines day is a highly commercialised celebration, but I personally love every opportunity that comes along to show ourselfs and others some love. I think that a beauty box with a love theme would make an amazing skincare and makeup box with some interesting productsRead more

Wellthos Health and Fitness Box February 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

I am always excited to open the Wellthos box as you never know what you are going to get. It often contains a range of different health and fitness products and the surprise element is great. It is an absolutely brilliant way of getting you to try products and brands you didn’t even know existed or even ones that you wouldn’t pick up yourself, for whatever reason. The Wellthos box was as always the typical branded cardboard box with noRead more

Coffee Chat: Should you celebrate Valentine’s day?

Hello my lovelies, I wanted to take today’s opportunity to addrees the love or hate Valentine’s day situation as it is an interesting subject that comes up every year. Some believe that Valentine’s day is just a ploy to make money and other’s get very upset when their other half does not come home with a gift or even worse, if they are single on the day. Me, I lie between the two. I think that Valentine’s day is definetelyRead more

Birchbox Beauty Box February 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

February is already here and although I am still wondering where January has gone, I was excited to open this month’s beauty boxes. February is often referred to as the month of love and although I agree that Valentines day is a highly commercialised celebration, I personally love every opportunity that comes along to show ourselfs and others some love. Whether you choose to buy yourself or your close ones a gift or celebrate at all, I think it makesRead more

Sephora Targeted Eye Makeup Remover Swabs – Review and Ingredient Analysis

We live in a world of comfort, where products are made to serve us or somehow make our life easier. This is definitely a theme that is starting to enter the beauty market too and…why not? I’ve recently seen these Sephora swabs (or cotton buds) that are filled with make up remover and I imagine, they are meant to make your life easier and correct mistakes faster and more accurately. So, I picked them up and put them to theRead more

It is my absolute pleasure to be writing about one of the very first Triyit boxes! Triyit is a product discovery club where you can try new products, at home, for free.

Too Faced Boss Lady Agenda 2018

I’ve been wanting to write about the Too Faced Boss Lady Agenda 2018/eye shadow palette for a while now but I’ve had so many other posts in front of this one! Anyhow, the time has come, better late than never. I received this palette as a gift, from my lovely partner. I had seen it before but I just didn’t feel it, it looked nice but the colours of the palette are not what I would use everyday. However, afterRead more
