Redken Extreme Shampoo & Conditioner – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analyses

There’s nothing like growing your hair long to make you appreciate, or hate, the hair products you use. I’ve been growing my hair, it’s up to my waist now, and so I’ve become a lot more aware of hair products, their ingredients and their true or false claims. However, whether you have long hair or short, your needs are fairly similar, healthy, nourished but also tame hair. I’ve been going through quite a few popular shampoos and conditioners recently butRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Glossybox Beauty Box January 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

First Glossybox of the year and I must say, I wasn’t thrilled. Not a bad box and not bad products but it just missed that little wow factor. This month’s theme was “beauty products that’ll make keeping our beauty resolutions easy” which is great but it really depends on what your resolutions are! This month’s box contained 5 products as always, of which 3 were full size and the other 2 were travel size. The products were, as seen inRead more

Battle of the Beauty Boxes – Conclusions from the 2018 Unboxing and Reviews on Birchbox, Glossybox, Look Fantastic and Cohorted

What a year for beauty boxes has it been! This year I’ve subscribed and tried the most beauty boxes I’ve ever have before but also unsubscribed from a lot too. I’ve tried Sophie’s Normal and Luxury beauty boxes which were nice but still at their infancy. I’ve tried the Pink Parcel and even though I didn’t write about it, I thought it was more worth the cash than Birchbox . I’ve also tried the MLB Box (aka My Little BeautyRead more

Redken Heatcure Hair Mask – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Haircare doesn’t receive as much attention as skincare and it is a shame as the state of your hair, your general hairstyle and even the way you choose to wear your hair with certain looks can make a huge difference. I always looked for nutritious shampoos and conditioners and did my usual “I’m a chemist on the lookout for ingredients” thing but admittedly, beyond that, haircare wasn’t huge for me, at least not to the level that I take myRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Glossybox Beauty Box November 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Beauty SOS! Another Glossybox is here and this month’s theme was “an emergency supply of haircare, makeup and skincare”. It is basically an essentials type of box which is nice all year around, especially for stocking up before the winter festivities. Since it was all about essentials, the design of the box remained as the iconic pink Glossybox without any special prints. I personally love these boxes, they are very sturdy and useful for storage and gifting and in generalRead more

Triyit Discovery Club meets Beauty Kitchen – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Time for another Triyit box! Triyit is a product discovery club that allows you to try new products, at home, for free! It is a little bit like Influenster with one of the differences being that Triyit is actually UK based. All you need to do is go to www.triyit.co.uk and create a personal profile, where you can tell them about your likes and dislikes, personal habits, like exercising, or what type of food you like etc. Then, every now and againRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Birchbox Beauty Box October 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

One more month, one more Birchbox although this one is my last. After a year and a half of being a subscriber to Birchbox and also to other beauty boxes, I have come to the conclusion that Birchbox is the least value for money and the least exciting beauty box to receive. For all the details and further explanations check out: Coffee Chat: Goodbye Birchbox – Why I unsubscribed from the Birchbox beauty box after a year and a half I’veRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Birchbox Beauty Box September 2018 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

This month’s Birchbox was a beautiful purple draw-like box with some soft coloured shape pattern. It’s definitely one of the most pretty Birchboxes and one that I’ll likely keep for a while. Love it when the box is pretty and you can utilise it too! The theme this month was “On top of your world”, as September is the month of new beginnings. Never heard of that before but I guess it makes sense, schools and Universities start now, theRead more
