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

Coffee Chat: Spring clean your house, your beauty and your mind

Hello my lovelies, We are more than half way through spring and if you haven’t done so already, a little spring clean is in order! Spring cleaning is one of those, almost cliché, things but it actually makes a lot of sense.

Organic food and farming – Scientific evidence, problems and ethical dilemmas

There is a growing trend of beauty companies going organic but before we can even discuss as to whether there is merit in buying those products or not, it is important to first look at what organic food and farming is. What scientific evidence is there, if any at all, that organic food or farming are better? After reading more than 60 research papers on the matter during the past couple of months, I’ve collected all the information here, togetherRead more

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

This month Wellthos arrived really early which is great! It also arrived in a different type of outer packaging that opens by ripping off the side, which means that you don’t need to use scissors anymore and the Wellthos box doesn’t get damaged either. Small changes, big impact! The entire box looks a lot more well put together and professional now. It’s really nice to see the changes over time! This month’s Wellthos box was, as always, the typical brandedRead more

The Wellthos box is a health and fitness box that contains 10-11 items every month and allows you to discover and try products that you might never have thought existed or you would never have picked up yourself. This type of subscription boxes can be especially important in the summer months, when our fitness motivation lacks a little, due to the heat and all the alternative outdoor activities. At the same time, exactly because it is during the summer monthsRead more
