I bought this on a whim while visiting Monsieur Raptor. I’d never read any reviews for it – a rare occurrence for me! – but I felt like I was on holiday, and thus deserved to treat myself (to a tinted lip balm, naturally). The packaging is kind of weird, a little deceptive, but in […]
After being blown away by Liz Earle’s famous and well-respected Cleanse & Polish hot cloth cleanser, I had really high hopes for this moisturiser by the same brand. I like Liz Earle’s ethos of being natural and gentle, even though I don’t always agree that natural is better (as I’ve probably made abundantly clear in […]
I bought this after I decided I needed a lighter foundation for summer, with more sun protection. This does the job perfectly, with a sheer, but buildable coverage, that adjusts to my skin tone beautifully. From the Boots website, here’s what we know about it: “Suncream to help protect the skin. Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil […]
Incase you’ve haven’t already heard about it (I hadn’t until about 2 weeks ago), Steamcream is a relatively new brand of skincare with an all-natural vibe. The concept is pretty interesting – their website tells us the following: “STEAMCREAM represents the latest concept in skincare. Freshly handmade using high-quality, natural ingredients that are fused together […]
I’ve only recently discovered this little wonder-product, but it’s already made a massive difference to my skin. I first saw it on A Model Recommends, the author of which swears by it for clearing up any spots, and after some research, I discovered this was a cult skincare favourite. I don’t have massively blemish prone […]
If, like me, your hands are always dry, regardless of season, you’ll appreciate these creams. They’re guaranteed to give you a “helping hand” when it comes to keeping things hydrated. I’ve picked my 5 favorite hand creams…
What a mouthful! I bought this because it smells absolutely delicious – practically edible (although, sadly, it’s not, so don’t go tasting it, no matter how tempted you are). This is probably due to its impressive list of featured ingredients: pistachio oil, almond oil, shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil.
I’m a firm believer in investing more money, time, and effort on your skincare than on your makeup. If you’ve got £30 to spend on either a nice bottle of Estee Lauder Double Wear, or some alpha/beta hydroxy acids, a nice, soothing moisturiser, and a gentle cleanser, I’d go for the latter because it’s better to have skin that glows and is blemish free, than to cover up your mishaps with the thickest, hardiest foundation you can find.
Thanks to my ultra-sensitive skin, I’ve always struggled to find a makeup remover that’s both gentle and effective. That’s why I got super excited when I picked up Garnier’s Simply Essentials Soothing 2 in 1 Makeup Remover, and discovered it didn’t upset my skin in the slightest, and removed most of my stubborn mascara. But we’ll get to that later…
This is my go-to day moisturiser. If I’m leaving the house and it’s particularly sunny (or even sometimes when it’s not), chances are, I’ll be wearing this under my makeup. I’ve been quite loyal to this little tube for about 2 years now, because it just ticks all the right boxes for me. I’ve flirted with other moisturisers, even used some of them for quite a while, but I think I’ll always come back to this one.
Here’s a few reasons why I love it…
