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…

What to Look for in a Moisturiser

jodie / 7th January 2015

As your body’s largest organ, skin can be a complicated thing. That’s why it’s important to understand it and its needs – a little like painting the walls of your house. Use the wrong formula for, say, the bathroom or the outside, and the walls could end up cracking and peeling away…not a nice image when you apply that thought…

A-Derma Skin Care Cream | Review

jodie / 29th October 2014

Ever had a skin care product you love so much it becomes your Holy Grail? Your staple, your desert island product – something you genuinely believe you couldn’t live without? Well, I recently discovered mine was breaking me out. I can barely contain my grief. I recently found the cause of my disgusting chin whiteheads was my by beloved Aveeno…

Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser (normal/combination) | Review

jodie / 15th October 2014

jodie / 8th October 2014

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 by a shot of steam.…

Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Lightly Whipped Body Buttercream | Review

jodie / 22nd September 2014

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. 


Soap & Glory “Feel Good Factor Translucent BB Cream SPF25” | Review

jodie / 16th September 2014

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…
