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.

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

Eyemajic Instant Eyeshadow – Does it give professional eyes in 10 seconds?

I remember when I first tried to do an eyeshadow look, it was very daunting. More daunting than any other makeup skill somehow. I’ve watched countless of Youtube videos, bought myself an eyeshadow palette and some fancy brushes, and then spent about an hour trying to re-create the look I found. I get it. I really do. Doing an eyeshadow look can be intimidating and, depending on the level of your makeup skills, it can also take a lot ofRead more

Primark PS Matte Lipstick – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

When it comes to skincare, cheap is usually also bad. This is an over generalisation of course, there some cheap products that are good but most of the time, cheap skincare products tend to contain very little or none nourishing ingredients. When it comes to makeup however, the situation is very different. Cheap and expensive products are a lot more equal in quality and the difference here is sometimes just branding. This is not to say that there aren’t badRead more

The Staple of Body Moisturisers – Paula’s Choice Daily Replenishing Body Cream – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

There are so many body creams, lotions and butters out there but very few of them are worth your time and money. Somehow, the development and quality of body products has lagged behind face skincare, as if, that skin needs less attention than our face. Our entire body is covered in skin, our biggest organ in our body, and it needs the same nourishment and care all around. Sadly though, even if you wanted to nourish your body’s skin asRead more

Expensive vs Cheap: Estée Lauder Double Wear vs Maybelline Fit Me Foundation – In-depth Reviews and Ingredient Analyses

I really hate trying out foundations because it’s one of those cosmetic products that are more often than not, just bad. It’s very rare to find a foundation you can trust, that lasts through raining and sun, looks great in pictures and stays matte all day long. If you have oily skin, once you try the Estée Lauder Double Wear it’s very hard to change. Very hard. Although I’ve found a couple of foundations that also worked well, they alwaysRead more

Estée Lauder by Violette OH NATURELLE! Eyeshadow Palette – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Estée Lauder is one of the very few brands that don’t have bad products. Although not every single Estée Lauder product is the best in its category, they are all good enough to use. The lack of bad products and the fact that this brand can do both skincare and makeup makes it the brand I’d choose if I had to only wear one for the rest of my life. However, nothing is without flaws and if there is somethingRead more
