    Finishing Touch Flawless Facial Hair Remover Review – Does It Really Work

    The Finishing Touch Flawless Facial Hair Remover is one of those products that I continually eyeballed for several months before finally deciding to buy one. I kept seeing it everywhere, from ads on tv to ads on my laptop as well as on the shelves of several department stores I ventured into. It was a JML product and I’m no stranger to those, in fact, I use their mineral magic face powder which I really love so I was hoping that this little item would be an effective addition to my skincare device collection. But if I’m being honest, I couldn’t help but be sceptical because this was after all…

    Sweet Almond Oil For Skin And Hair – My 12 Week Test To See If It Really Works

    If I had a pound for every time I heard people talking about how they use sweet almond oil for skin and hair purposes, I’d be swimming in a serious amount of coins by now. And its not just sweet almond oil either, its coconut oil, argan oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, the list just goes on and on. But here’s the thing, do any of these oils actually work and if so, which ones work best on which areas? I personally alternate between three different oils currently and they are sweet almond oil, coconut oil and argan oil but because I interchange them regularly, its very hard to distinguish…

    Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Night Cream Review

    The Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Night Cream is a product that I’ve used intermittently over the years but for some reason, I’ve never gotten around to writing a review on it. I remember when this range was first introduced and there was such a serious amount of hype surrounding it all because of a documentary claiming that this range (the serum in particular) was clinically proven to actually work at reducing wrinkles. Women were literally lining up outside Boots stores before they even opened and stampeding through the aisles to strip the shelves bare faster than you can shake a tic tac. One tabloid newspaper even wrote…

    Algenist Elevate Advanced Retinol Serum Review

    The Algenist Elevate Advanced Retinol Serum is the new retinol addition to the increasingly popular Algenist range and although I’ve already tried and reviewed their old retinol firming lifting serum, I thought it only fair to try out their new formula. It could, after all, have been a negative replacement rather than an improvement so there really was only one way to find out. Their original retinol serum was a popular product and after trying it, I could fully understand why but after the arrival of the new elevate serum, the old firming lifting serum has slowly been discontinued and has now pretty much vanished off the shelves. Obviously, as…

    What Is Beta Hydroxy Acid And Who Is It Best For

    What is beta hydroxy acid and what exactly is it used for in the skincare world. If you’re new to chemical exfoliants then chances are you’ve heard the term AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) and BHA (beta hydroxy acid) but you may not necessarily know exactly what they are, how they work or who they’re best suited for. For a long time, I ignored them and didn’t use them in my skincare routine mainly because firstly I didn’t understand them and secondly because if I’m being totally honest, they kinda scared me a little. In reality though, my fear was unjust and it turned out that they are actually very effective…

    Manuka Doctor ApiNourish Age-Defying Eye Cream Review

    I love Manuka Doctor products and their Age-Defying Eye Cream is no exception. You see, I’m having quite the love affair with them at the moment ever since I tried their ApiNourish Night Cream and their Age-Defying Serum. I was so impressed with both of them that I ended up on a mad spending spree trying to acquire as many products from their ApiNourish range as I could possibly get my hands on. There was a half price sale on at the time so I’m using that as my excuse to justify my splurge (a girl can’t resist a bargain after all) and their eye cream was just one of…

    The Benefits Of Almond Oil For Skin

    There are numerous oils used for skin care purposes and because of the benefits of almond oil for skin, it has earned a well-deserved place as one of the favourites. And although it’s not quite as non-comedogenic as the popular argan oil, it is still relatively low on the “pore clogging scale” which means that it’s generally unlikely to cause most people issues on the pore clogging front. Almonds and almond oil have long been known for their health benefits but almond oil also has numerous benefits when applied to the skin too and there are a lot of different ways in which you can use it making it quite…

    Dry Cracked Feet? Could Sudocrem Be The Answer?

    I’m not gonna lie, I suffer from dry cracked feet on the regular so I’m forever trying new gadgets and creams to try and solve the problem. Most of the time the different remedies work but I get bored and lazy and once the desired results are achieved, I neglect my feet all over again and end up right back where I started. I live in a cold climate so it’s not as though my feet are on display on a regular basis so you can understand why they’re not up there as a top priority especially considering that nobody ever sees them. However come the summer months I always…

    What Is Alpha Hydroxy Acid And How Does It Benefit Your Skin

    So, what is alpha hydroxy acid in the world of skincare and what can it do for your skin. You’ve more than likely heard of it before at least by its more common name of AHA but what exactly is it and what can you expect from using it. Well, it turns out quite a bit especially if you’re looking to up your anti-aging skincare game. If your end goal is for smoother, clearer and healthier looking skin, then AHAs may just be another great addition to complement your existing skincare arsenal. What Are AHAs AHAs are chemical compounds that are used in skincare products as a chemical exfoliant to…

    InstaNatural Retinol Serum Review – Why It’s Not For Me

    Before I even begin, this InstaNatural Retinol Serum review is the first negative review that I’ve had to write so I wanted to point a few things out before I get started. Firstly I’m not necessarily saying that this is a bad product (it’s highly rated reviews across the net would certainly contradict that) it’s just that it’s not a product that worked well for me personally. We all have different skin types and what works great on one person’s skin may wreak havoc on someone else’s so I just wanted to add my own not so great experience to the mix. There were also a few other things that…
