    Do Facial Exercises Really Work?

    You’ve probably already heard about facial exercises or facial yoga but do facial exercises really work or are they just some crazy fad that many people have fallen for? I actually have a serious interest in this topic because if they’re anywhere near as effective as some people claim they are, then I for one would like to know more about them. They’re not even a new concept, in fact, the likes of facial yoga have been around for many centuries but it’s only really taken off in the last decade due to its celebrity following. With the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston singing its praises, you can…

    Chemical Sunscreen Vs Physical Sunscreen – What’s The Difference

    It’s that time of year again when sun protection is more important than ever but have you ever wondered what the difference is between chemical sunscreen vs physical sunscreen and if one is better than the other?

    Manuka Doctor Apinourish Restoring Night Cream Review

    The Manuka Doctor Apinourish Restoring Night Cream is a product that I tried quite some time ago but for some strange reason, I never got around to writing a full-length review on it. It’s kind of crazy really because even to this day it’s one of the most effective night creams I’ve ever tried. At the time when I first started using it, I was also trying out two other products from the Apinourish age-defying range so I decided to do a review of all three of them together. But to be honest the brief review on each product just didn’t do enough to express how truly effective these products…

They’re both seriously beneficial when it comes to skin and hair care but unfortunately one may be more problematic than the other. So let’s look at the pros and cons of each one and why they may…

    Korean 10 Step Skin Care Routine – It’s Not As Extensive As You Might Think

    The Korean 10 step skincare routine has become an extremely popular practice if you have the patience and the time to do it. There’s no denying that Korean women have some of the most flawless skin in the world and when you realise the extent of their skincare routines, you start to understand why. So seeing as I like to experiment when it comes to skincare, I thought it would be interesting to give this routine a try and see if it would make any kind of substantial difference to my skins appearance. I decided to dedicate a full week to it because honestly, it sounded pretty exhausting. I figured…

    Alguronic Acid Benefits And Side Effects – The Relatively New Skincare Ingredient

    If you’re a follower of the Algenist brand then you’ve more than likely come across their patented breakthrough skincare ingredient Alguronic acid but what exactly is it and what kind of Alguronic acid benefits can you expect if you add it to your skincare routine? Are there any Alguronic acid side effects and where did this so-called super anti-ageing ingredient come from? As Alguronic acid is still a relatively new skincare ingredient, the data on it is pretty sparse so I had to search quite long and hard to find any good information about it. Alguronic acid has actually only been around for about seven or so years so the…

    Foreo Vs Clarisonic – The Battle Of The Cleansing Brushes

    If you’re into your facial cleansing gadgets then you’ve probably already faced the dilemma of Foreo vs Clarisonic and debated over which one you should pick. They’re both at the top of the cleansing brush market and they both do pretty much the same thing but is one more effective than the other. How do you decide which one to buy or if you’re already using one, should you switch to the other? It’s actually a very common question so me being me I had to try them both. I originally started out with the Clarisonic Mia 2 which I used and loved for quite a long time but when…
