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…

My Handbag Essentials

jodie / 13th November 2014

If you have a large handbag, it’s so easy to take everything bar your vanity mirror with you on your daily ventures – after all, you never know when you might need to reapply that lippie, or spontaneously stay at a friend’s house overnight.

After suffering an horrific face-plosion of whiteheads on my chin (the result of a poor choice in moisturiser) and clearing most them with with some benzoyl peroxide, I thought I’d look for a gentler solution that I could use every day, or every other day, without upsetting my skin too much.

How to Treat Spots and Blemishes

jodie / 23rd October 2014

I’ve never been one to struggle with spots. During my teens I was fortunate enough not to suffer from acne; my skin teetered on the fence, sometimes swaying towards normal, sometimes dry, but always sensitive. Which is why, as a 22 year old, it confused the shit out of my when my chin suddenly erupted in whiteheads, blackheads and who-knows-what-else.…

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

jodie / 15th October 2014

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.
