Pixi Toners Part E: Pixi Milky Tonic – In-Depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

In recent posts I’ve being testing and analysing the Pixi Tonics as they provide relatively cheap and good tonic options. The last tonic left to analyse is the Milky Tonic, so without further ado, let’s get to it. Is the Pixi Milky Tonic skin nourishing and worth your time or just one more marketing type product? PS. If you are wondering what the difference is between a toner and a tonic, it’s minimal to none. Practically, they are the sameRead more

Dr Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Brightening Eye Serum – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Serums can be a very important part of skincare, adding or even boosting (quantity-wise but sometimes also absorption-wise) the ingredients that your moisturiser is lacking in. While many serums tend to be specific ingredient based (ie. Hyaluronic acid serum or vitamin C serum etc) they are not often area specific. In fact, area specific skincare, tends to be mostly a marketing play as more often than not, our skin needs the same care and ingredients throughout. However, in the pastRead more

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

Pixi Toners Part D: Pixi Vitamin C Tonic – In-Depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

In recent posts I’ve being testing and analysing the Pixi Tonics as they provide relatively cheap and good tonic options. However, while they are much better than a lot of toners/tonics out there, most of them are not skincare gold and some of them are better than others. But there are another 2 tonics left to look at before concluding the series and in this post we will be looking at the Pixi Vitamin C tonic. Is the Pixi VitaminRead 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

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

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Finding the perfect cream is an almost impossible task. Not only because a lot of them out there don’t contain many effective skin nourishing ingredients but also because even the ones that do, it’s very difficult to formulate everything our skin needs in just one product. But despair not as serums can be the answer to this problem. There are plenty of serums out there these days, some of which are actually quite good. By picking the right one, ingredientRead 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

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
