Percy & Reed Hair Volumising Mousse – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

I’ve recently been liking a product that I never thought would ever come under my radar, the Percy & Reed Volumising Mousse. I usually, 99.99% of the time wear my hair straight but there is the odd moment when I enjoy some curls. Curls however, are hard to wear, especially for my thick unruly hair. They are hard to keep interesting, bouncy and naturally voluminous but the Percy & Reed Volumising Mousse has actually been the great tool for the job.Read more

Cohorted Beauty Box March 2020 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

The Cohorted box was as always the standard black, square box that closes with a lid. The box also came with it’s monthly, small beauty magazine (about 30 pages) that tells you a little bit more about each product and some featured products or artists. Although this month I got the February magazine in my box and it has started to happen quite often that the magazine would be either missing or be the wrong month. Cohorted March 2020 containedRead more

Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Lip Oil Balm – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Even though I have oily face skin, my lips are as dry as it gets. I’ve been trying many face masks, lip balms and other treatments and nothing really works long term. What’s worse is that if you look further into these things, the reason why they don’t work long term becomes obvious. They don’t nourish the skin, just quickly condition it. As a result, I’ve been looking for a lip product that actually contains ingredients which could nourish theRead more

What a simple and yet meaningful quote! The Look Fantastic box also always comes with a small monthlyRead more

Coffee Chat: The thing about parabens…

Parabens are one of those ingredient badies that have received a lot of negative press as some believe, in simple terms, that they can mimic hormones, messing with biological processes and lead to cancer etc. The scientific proof for this is still lacking and the vast majority of studies show that parabens are safe in the quantities found in cosmetics. Despite this, many people choose to avoid cosmetics which contain parabens and some countries have already started banning them fromRead more

Hoposo Blackhead Vacuum – Does it work?

Having oily skin, I’ve battled with blackheads, pores the size of craters and texture skin all my life. Despite the fact that oily skin ages/wrinkles slower than dry skin, it somehow never was an advantage. Large pores, contant blackheads and oil production large enough to fry eggs have been the deciding factors for all cosmetic related decitions I’ve made throughout the years. Although I’ve managed to control my oil production completely with proper skincare and makeup, I was never ableRead more

Coffee Chat: Are you open to information or subconsciously looking for validation?

Hello my lovelies, It’s been a while since we had a coffee chat so grab a coffee and let’s discuss something that has been bothering me almost my entire life! As you might already know, I am a scientist, a Dr in chemistry to be exact, and I wanted to be one since I can remember. Sounds cheesy but it’s true. Part of what fascinates me about science is the act of seeking information, finding proof and basing conclusions onRead more
