Clinique Moisture Surge Vs. Neutrogena Hydro Boost

I’ve tried two very similar moisturisers and compared them: Clinique Moisture Surge Vs. Neutrogena Hydro Boost.    I love moisturisers. My skin is so thirsty I’m on a constant mission to find the perfect quenching moisturiser. Heavy creams can be great, but, like, there’s a time and place, you know? (I.e. when my skin is shedding like a snake and dry…

Brand Spotlight | FuturePrimitive

Welcome to Brand Spotlight! One of my latest beauty discoveries is FuturePrimitive. Here are my thoughts on the brand and its products. I’m obsessed with my hair. This means I’ve tried countless shampoos, from the latest Boots has to offer in a gimmickey bottle at 25% off, to neem oil soap from the local hippy shop. (Note: the latter was…

My Favourite Skincare Ingredients

Skincare ingredients
jodie / 25th November 2017

I’ve tried a lot of different skincare products in my time. I always struggled with eczema on my arms when I was a kid, but about 6 years ago I had a nasty breakout of it under my eyes. Being in my twenties and having such aggravated, raw skin on my face wasn’t nice – it ruined my self confidence…

The Body Shop Chamomile Sumptuous Butter Review

The Body Shop Chamomile Sumptuous Butter
jodie / 2nd February 2016

I find makeup removers very hit or miss. They often irritate my sensitive skin and occasionally break me out (depending on how curmudgeonly my skin is being). The only makeup removers I find that consistently perform well are micellar waters, and even they aren’t 100% without fault (they often leave traces of foundation and NUXE’s micellar water left with with…

Dealing With Nightmare Hair

jodie / 9th September 2014

I thought it would be a great idea to go from light brown to firey copper (maybe with a few flashes of blonde, ’cause I’m a wildcard like that) to shake things up a bit, and to really get into the Autumnal vibe. This is what I was thinking: Pretty cool, right? I’ve never done anything interesting with my hair…

Lush Handy Gurugu Hand Cream | Review

jodie / 27th August 2014

I’m one of those people who can’t stop picking at, biting, and generally making a mess of their nails and cuticles. The skin around my fingers is like an old, freyed dishcloth, and I fucking love peeling my brittle nails. Why yes, I am aware that this is making me sound like a total minger. I can handle it (pun intended,…

August Birchbox!

jodie / 22nd August 2014

I signed up to Birchbox last week, so this is my first experience – how exciting! When it came yesterday it was like Christmas. (No really, I was that excited.) I’m just going to give a quick overview of each product, then I’ll give a full review of each of them once I’ve given them a trial. Maybe. If I…

I Bloody Love Autumn

jodie / 19th August 2014

This is one of my favourite times of the year: end-of-August-almost-Autumn. I get so excited when the temperature drops and there’s a bite in the air, the leaves looking a little fragile and I debate with myself whether or not it’s socially acceptable to wear gloves and scarves yet.  I’m one of those people who loves Autumn/Winter fashion (cosy, cable…

Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion | Review

jodie / 11th August 2014

Apologies for the poor quality photo/mood lighting. This was taken at night under the light of a single candle. (Are you swooning yet? I bet you’re swooning.) Aveeno’s Skin Relief really is the shit. It’s my disgusting, scaly, reptilian face’s BFF, and I couldn’t live without it. Proper desert island product, this. If my skin is having a tantrum – be…
