Beauty Product Discovery – Look Fantastic Beauty Box February 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

February is such a nice opportunity for makeup, even if you don’t believe in or celebrate Valentines day. It’s a nice opportunity to take care of yourself, fell pretty and go out on a date. With that in mind, I had high hopes for this month’s Look Fantastic box. The box itself was simple but elegant and beautiful, having different shades of pink and gold-pink writing. It’s typical for Look Fantastic to have simple, just coloured no designs boxes, whichRead more

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

The white cartridge is for uneven skin tone, the green for irritation, the orange one for fatigue, theRead more

GlamGlow Gravity Mud Treatment Face Mask – In-dept Review and Ingredient Analysis

Face masks are one of the beauty items that are sold or perceived misleadingly. While face masks can enhance your skincare by bringing in extra ingredients that your routine does not include, they are not the ones to give you youthful and healthy skin. Many perceive face masks as cosmetic saviours but in practice, it is like dieting once a week and expecting to loose weight. It’s your skincare that is doing the heavy lifting. However, if chosen wisely, thatRead more

Mineral oil is a colourless and odourless liquid, often found in cosmetics, that has received a lot of bad press by many who believe that it is a carcinogen. Likely a big part of the confusion, mineral oil is a very imprecise name.

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

Cohorted started out this year strong. This month’s box contained quite a lot of different products and of decent sizes too! Cohorted doesn’t really follow a monthly theme but this month they focused on products to “kick start a radiant New Year” and it definitely fits the month as well as the products contained. Great stuff! 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 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
