    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, 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 skeptical because this was afterall a shaver…

    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…

    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…

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…

    How To Do A Skin Patch Test And Why It’s So Important

    If you’ve ever wondered how to do a skin patch test with a new skin care product then believe me you’re not alone because many people have no idea how to do one. In fact, how many of us don’t even bother with a skin patch test every time we come home with a brand new fancy skin care product (hand firmly raised high here) because let’s face it who wants to wait right. You didn’t just spend all that money on your new supposedly age reversing product to then have to wait several days before you can fully cake your face in it, right?. Well, I get it and…

    Magnesium For Skin – Why It’s So Beneficial

    Increasing your intake of magnesium for skin health purposes (and of course body health purposes too) can be a lot more beneficial than you probably realise. Magnesium probably isn’t the first thing you’d think about when considering important vitamins and minerals for skin health because the likes of vitamin C, vitamin E, Zinc etc pretty much steal the limelight but the importance of magnesium shouldn’t be underestimated. Magnesium is essential for over 300 reactions throughout the body and contributes towards digestive health, heart health, bone and muscle health as well as numerous others. Amazingly it’s estimated that in America alone, almost 75% – 80% of the population is deficient in…
