Look Fantastic April 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Time is going past so quickly but how can we be upset when it means that it’s time for another set of beauty box unboxings! Look Fantastic was, as always, the first beauty box to arrive and so without further ado, let’s have a look at the April 2019 box. The theme this month was “Raw Beauty” and the quote under the lid read: “There is beauty in simplicity”. While I absolutely love and agree with the quote, I reallyRead more

The EU Regulation on Cosmetics

Although cosmetics are not as regulated as drugs, there are still some laws that apply to them. Such laws unfortunately vary from country to country but there are also many similar ones. Nevertheless, although such subjects tend to produce very long and boring documents, there is some information in them that is not only interesting but also worth knowing. So bear the long post, this is information YOU SHOULD KNOW, grab a coffee and let’s have a summary look atRead more

Morphe 350 Nature Glow Eyeshadow Palette – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

With so many eye shadow palettes out there, it can get tough to choose. However, so far 2019 has been a little boring on the eye shadow release front, I guess there will be more interesting releases in the summer. Anyhow, this has made me go back, use and appreciate some of the older palettes which actually is not that much of a bad idea, as they will be cheaper now! In this post I will be looking at anRead more

Cohorted Beauty Box March 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Last beauty box of March, another month of beauty boxes down! With a strong Look Fantastic but a weak Glossybox this month, Cohorted was almost set to be mediocre. But, it wasn’t! The Cohorted box was as always the standard black, square box that closes magnetically and ties with a ribbon. The box also came with its monthly, small beauty magazine (about 30 pages) that tells you a little bit more about each product and some featured products or artists.Read more

Glossybox March 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Glossybox March 2019 was all about self-empowerment and at this time of the year, we are all starting to need some! The beauty box also came with a new style cardboard leaflet that has some information about the products contained. Although it’s not a huge change, the box felt refreshed and dare I say, empowered. Sadly, the products contained were the opposite of that. This month’s box contained 5 products as always, of which 4 were full size and theRead more

Look Fantastic Beauty Box March 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

I don’t know how it’s March 2019 already but it’s somehow time for another Look Fantastic unboxing! The theme this month was “in the spotlight” and it was all about favourite beauty products and trends. The box had a blue-purple pattern on the lid and the bottom was a beautiful purple-pink. The Look Fantastic box always comes with a quote under the lid and this month it said: “Get ready to steal the spotlight”, which suits the theme and createsRead more

Coffee Chat: Clean, Organic Beauty and Chemophobia – Your Cosmetics are Not Killing you, your Lifestyle and Genetics are

Hello my lovelies, As you know I am a Dr in Chemistry and the negative image of science, chemistry in particular, in our society has been saddening me greatly. I see situations, hear and read things almost on a daily basis that are factualess and yet take over some people’s lives entirely. The main reason I started this blog was to spread some scientific understanding in every day subjects like beauty and fitness, in a world where science is beingRead more

Beauty Product Discovery – Cohorted Beauty Box February 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Last beauty box for the love month, February, and while Glossybox and Look Fantastic where slightly disappointing, Cohorted was strong this month! Cohorted doesn’t really follow themes but the editorial intro usually describes what they were going for, which this month was “little indulgence”. It definitely suits the month and who wouldn’t like a little indulgence? The Cohorted box was as always the standard black, square box that closes magnetically and ties with a ribbon. The box also came withRead more

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

The romantic aspect of February is such a great opportunity for makeup. Any excuse for nice makeup right? Sadly, Glossybox didn’t deliver this month which is very rare as it is almost always great but unfortunately they really picked the wrong month to be boring! This month’s theme was “It’s all about love” and although the box design was absolutely gorgeous the contents were underwhelming. Let’s focus on the box design though because it truly was gorgeous. The lid wasRead more
