Estée Lauder DayWear vs DayWear Matte. Which one is best?

Day creams are a very important part of skincare but they have a very difficult task to fulfil. Not only do they have to nourish the skin and protect it with SPF but also work well under makeup. In this post I will be comparing the Estée Lauder DayWear (Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant 24H-Moisture Crème SPF15) and DayWear Matte (Oil-Control Anti-Oxidant Moisture Gel Creme) to figure out whether any of them are worth buying and if they fit into the criteria ofRead 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

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

Vivo Vitamin C + Amino Acid Night Repair Cream – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

There are many, many, many day and night moisturisers out there but not a lot that contain any or many skincare must have ingredients, are actually effective and worth their price. As a result, I am always on the lookout for good moisturisers and so should you! In my latest trip to TK Maxx (a store that re-sells products at lower prices) I’ve come across the Vivo Vitamin C + Amino Acid Night Repair cream. I’ve never heard of theRead more

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Face masks are great but not so much for the reasons you think so! Most face masks in the market are nowhere nutritious enough to make a difference to your skin and the few ones that are, won’t either, simply because you won’t use them often enough. So, what’s the point then? Well, face masks should be all about you. They should be about enjoying some much needed 15-20 minutes a week of me-time, with a cup of hot chocolateRead more

Part B: Clinique iD Range – In-depth Reviews and Ingredient Analyses of the Cartridges

Clinique recently released a new skincare range called Clinique iD where you can create your custom-blend hydration system. The customisation part is very easy. Firstly, you have to choose your base out of 3 possible moisturisers, the moisturising lotion, moisturising gel and hydrating gel. Then you have to choose a cartridge out of 5 possible options, which thankfully are also colour coded. The white cartridge is for uneven skin tone, the green for irritation, the orange one for fatigue, theRead more

Paula’s Choice Clinical Ceramide-Enriched Firming Moisturiser – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Skincare is so important not only for maintaining healthy skin but also for future proofing and slowing down the signs of ageing as much as possible. There are so many moisturisers in the market, ranging from £1-100+ and so you might think that you are spoilt for choice. Sadly, when you start looking into ingredients, you’d quickly realise that most of them are very superficial, moisturising or conditioning only the surface and for a short period of time. Your skinRead more

Cheaper and Better Than Your Lip Balm? Check out the Oryza Dewy Glow Skin Beauty Balm In-Depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Summer is almost over and with the colder weather slowly moving in, our skincare has to be adjusted as well. Colder months are known for making our skin more dry (even if your skin is not the dry type) and especially our lips. With that in mind, and the fact that I have dry lips all year round anyways, I have been looking for a moisturising lip balm and lipsticks. In a previous post I’ve reviewed in detail the AvonRead more
