Glossybox Beauty Box August 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

It’s Glossybox’s Birthday! Happy Birthday Glossybox! I hope there’s many more exciting and successful years to come. What an amazing theme with an immense potential and what an amazingly beautiful box design. This could have been the month that Glossybox celebrates its existence and thanks it’s subscribers but unfortunately, the contents of the box were underwhelming. This month’s box contained 5 products, as always. Let’s have a look at the products in more detail. These are short reviews that cover firstRead more

Look Fantastic Beauty Box August 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

Look Fantastic went for a “Heatwave” theme this month and the products sort of matched! This doesn’t happen very often, so it was a pleasant surprise! This beauty box always comes with a quote under the lid and this month it said: “Sunshine is the best medicine“. Not sure I would agree that it is the best, but it’s definitely in the top and is one of those things that can instantly change our mood! The Look Fantastic box alsoRead more

Great Skincare Addons – Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Few people use toners daily and that’s a shame. Although toners are definitely not a must-have, they can be quite helpful in removing left over dirt and providing extra nutritious ingredients for your skin, that perhaps the rest of your skincare regime is missing. It’s hard to get all the right ingredients and in the right concentration, so why not add a toner to your regime to give you a little help? I’ve previously wrote about some of the mostRead more

L’oréal Age Perfect Cleansing Wipes – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

I know, I know, I’ve been writing quite a lot about makeup wipes recently, but it’s because I have been so unhappy with the ones I was using, I was trying new ones left right and centre. However, the good news is that I finally found some that although they are not perfect, I am happy enough to settle for now. The wipes of the hour are the L’oréal Age Perfect Cleansing Wipes and yes, I’ve had a moment of aRead more

Bioré Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

There are many different ways of cleaning the skin, from wet cleansers to oils, creams and waxes, to physical and chemical exfoliants. All have their pros and cons and realistically the best approach would probably be to use a combination to max the benefits. The only method I personally avoid is physical exfoliation as it can unnesecarily damage the skin and the results are not better than when using chemical exfoliants, such as AHA and BHAs. However, there is oneRead more

The Amly Botanical Alchemy Beauty Sleep Silver Rich Face Mist – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Sleeping in this day of age has become a bit of a challenge. We are more stressed than ever, worried to death and sometimes even too tired to sleep calmly. But where there is a problem, there is a solution! There’s been a couple of brands lately pushing out sleeping mist products to help us find that Zen before or during sleep. One of the most impressive ones being the Amly Botanical Alchemy Beauty Sleep Silver Rich Face Mist whichRead more

The Nip + Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Serum – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Serums are a great way of boosting your skincare routine and adding or increasing an ingredient (or more) that will benefit your skin in some way. However, there are so many serums out there these days that it can be very hard to choose, even amognst the good ones. Sadly though, probably because of their fancy name and specialised product title, most serums are not worth your time as they tend to contain more marketing than actual beneficial ingredients thatRead more

This Works Morning Expert Hyaluronic Acid – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

The This Works In Transit Camera Mask, Moisturiser & Primer is my ride-or-die primer, not only does it create a good makeup base but it is also nourishing for the skin. So when I saw the This Works Morning Expert Hyaluronic Serum I was very intrigued. Hyaluronic acid is one of the skincare must have ingredients, find out why here, plus it also contains vitamin C, another must have ingredient, and so it has the potential to be a greatRead more

Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Face masks are over hyped products that many of us see as saviours. Special products that will do some kind of skin miracle very quickly. Well, they don’t. Face masks have more emotional than skincare value and that’s ok. If you want to do a face mask to feel more feminine and relaxed then it’s totally worth it but don’t use them entirely for skincare purposes. Most masks don’t contain a lot of amazing ingredients, they are mostly mediocre, butRead more

Cohorted Beauty Box June 2019 – Unboxing and Product Reviews

It seems that June is the month for beauty box improvements, as Cohorted also decided to change their box, a bit more drastically than Glossybox though. The box design is entirely different and although it is now less luxurious looking and feeling, the change is very welcome and overall very positive. The old box (left side of image below) closed magnetically, had a tie ribbon at the front and although it was plain black with the Cohorted logo, it hadRead more
