Review: Napiers Starflower Sensitive Skin Cream

Disclaimer: Item provided for review  This one I’ve had for months and really I should have done a review for it a while ago but kept using it and so it was never in my review pile which I was taking photographs. Not only have I used it for myself but I’ve also used it…

Review: Lush Dream Cream

I should have written a review on this one ages ago but for some reason I kept forgetting about it even though it’s an essential on my skin-care routine. Though it’s described as a hand and body lotion I also use it on my face from time to time. “A soothing and cooling cream that…

My Skincare Favorites: Breath of Fresh Air

It’s quite funny that before trying this product I’ve always thought that toners were a bit of a con, when I first started getting into skin care a few years ago the first toner I tried out dried my skin out something chronic. I don’t know what on earth possessed me to buy this a…

Video Review: Sirius Sonic (Clarisonic Dupe)

I would like to introduce you to one of my favorite moisturisers for Winter skin care.

DIY Beauty: Rice Face Scrub

I got the idea for this one a few months ago when I was looking through some Demalogica products at the airport and saw a rice based exfoliator. It got me thinking about how to make my own DIY version (and cheaper version) and after trying out and testing the following idea for a a few…

Review: LUSH Herbalism Cleanser

As you can see this one has been tried, tested and battered. Poor little pot :( Mind you I’m sure he’s used to it seeing as he’ll be going back to Lush in a few weeks to be re-cycled. “A solid cleanser to gently exfoliate, remove grease and calm troubled skin” I’m on a little…
