Glossybox Beauty Box June 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Glossybox has been redesigning their pink iconic box to a slightly smaller size and this month it was the first time to receive the newer-smaller one. However, unless I’ve told you this you wouldn’t really have known as the box I received this month was only slightly smaller, not even half a centimetre, a difference that was not obvious to me until I literally put the old and new boxes on top of each other. I do wonder though ifRead more

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Hand Cream – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Although hand creams are not an essential product, if your body cream is sufficiently moisturising and nourishing, they can be very handy to have in your handbag, especially due to their size. I previously wrote about some moisturising and nourishing hand creams that are worth buying and although they are not very expensive, they are also not budget friendly.

Estée Lauder Little Box. Big Day – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Beauty boxes are not just the subscription kind. Some beauty companies create beauty boxes as little product bundles that you can buy and Estée Lauder is one of those brands that has been doing this consistently for a while. Like subscription beauty boxes, these types of boxes give you the opportunity to try out different products at a good price but unlike beauty boxes, their content is not a surprise. You can decide beforehand, if there is a good chanceRead more

Look Fantastic Beauty Box June 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Look Fantastic June 2019 came in a beautiful box that has an artistic world map on it. It reminds me a bit of the Look Fantastic August 2017 box, which also showed a world map. Fitting to the design of the box, the theme this month was “Around the world” and the box contained products from all around the globe. A great theme with a beautiful box and interesting products to try.   This beauty box always comes with aRead more

Vivo Per Lei Laboratories Collagen Booster Eye Serum – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Eye serums are one of those products that are essentially “made up”. It feeds on our concerns over thinner under eye skin, puffiness, dark circles, wrinkles etc but in reality, if your moisturiser is nourishing enough, you don’t really need an eye serum. However, there are some occasions when an eye serum, or any serum, can be a huge improvement to your skincare routine, and that’s when it adds ingredients that your moisturiser and rest of your skincare lacks. AtRead more

Doucce Freematic Flexible Palettes – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analyses

There are so many palettes out there these days making it very hard to choose. With their beautiful packaging, attractive colours and clever branding, what is it that makes you choose which one to buy? For me it is their usability. Despite the fact that colourful eyeshadow palettes look very attractive and gorgeous, I tend to avoid them because I know I won’t use them that much. Similarly, I avoid buying contour palettes because they often contain too many options,Read more

Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator – Indepth Review and Ingredient Analysis

A good moisturiser is not just a cream that adds moisture to the skin but also one that nourishes and keeps it healthy. Nourishment is something that many forget but it is especially important, not only for slowing down ageing, but also because quite simply if the skin is not healthy it might not hold any moisture to begin with. Dry skin will in turn cause other problems and you end up in a viscous circle. As a result, aRead more

Percy & Reed Session Hold Hairspray – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Don’t you hate those tiny little hairs at the base of your head, especially around your ears, that never seem to grow no matter how long your hair gets? I am almost convinced that different rules apply to them, than to the rest of our hair, and I am even more perplexed on how they defy gravity and manage to just point sideways, the opposite direction of the rest of my hair, over and over, day in and day out.Read more

Cohorted Beauty Box May 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Cohorted is a luxury beauty box subscription which costs £35 a month. As a result, the expectations and excitement factor are high before even opening the box. This month’s Cohorted was, as always, the standard black, square box that closes magnetically and ties with a ribbon. The box also comes with a monthly, small beauty magazine (about 30 pages) that tells you a little bit more about each product and some featured products or artists. This beauty box doesn’t followRead more

Coffee Chat: Maintenance week #2

Hello my lovelies, I started this blog for a couple of reasons, the main one being wanting to minimise the gap between science and the public. These everyday subjects, beauty and fitness, but also many others in life, are plagued with misinformation or lack of thereof. I hope that this blog is empowering you to utilise the power of science, by brining you some facts based on scientific studies and that you are finding other sections like ingredient analysis useful.Read more
