Juju (ahem) a Japanese brand, produces affordable skincare – one of their most famous ranges is the Aquamoist range which is based around Hyaluronic acid to moisturize the skin. One of their newest releases is the Shiromomohada range which has 2 products – a peach whitening mist and lotion. I purchased the fine mist: I don’t know why I find the picture of a baby’s head in a peach a little bit cute-scary! I also don’t […]
Innisfree is a Korean brand with a huge range of products all with a ‘natural’ edge. I haven’t tried that much from the range purely because other brands have proved more appealing so far. I love multi use products so bought these two tints in Garden Balsam (Coral) and Azalea (Hot Pink). There is also a shade called Camelia which is more of a reddish rose: These have a gel type texture, thicker than Benefit’s […]
B&C Labs Clear Last Range focuses on primers and powders – I’ve tried a few of their products in the past with varied results – but generally it’s good. Their High Coverage powder is one of my favourites. The Clear Last Base Make Primer ‘Poreless Concealer’ SPF25 – I think this is more for spot application over areas of concern rather than an all over primer. This product has the bonus of SPF25 too! Clear […]
I really adore Becca cosmetics so was interested to see that they are launching new polishes. They’ve kept it simple with just 3 shades, and they are pretty neutral. Each polish has a self-levelling colour brush, and is fast drying. They’re free from formaldehyde and toluene. The summer shades are peachy/orange. Tangerine Dream is a bright sunset coral.
Kiss Me, famed for it’s excellent Heroine Make range, has a nail collection called ‘Mente’ – (click for reviews of it’s nail hardener!). I’ve noticed a trend amongst Japanese nail products for Gel Top Coats. The idea is getting a ‘gel nail finish’ but without the commitment of a gel nail. I’m all for that! I am not one for gel or fake nails (yes I know they are different things) so a low commitment […]
A couple of months ago, I had a dry patches on my face – they were red and angry and I did something silly and put a placenta face mask on top which made everything a million times worse. Eventually everything faded away apart from a rather large spot on my cheek, about an inch under my eye. A dry patch had turned into a spot and this was no ordinary spot – there was […]
Everyone has gone BB cream mad all of a sudden; as someone who has been trying and discarding many of them for a few years now I noticed a few other bloggers on Twitter looking for recommendations for Asian BB creams. I offered to send the lovely Liloo from Le Petit Jardin De Liloo a few sachets from various brands (I get a lot of free samples with my big overseas hauls!), so that she […]
The Michaeljohn hair salon located in Mayfair is very posh. So posh that the reception is littered with Hermes handbags (real ones) and eccentric hairdressers that look like Mr. Miyagi in flower power shirts dance around enthusiastically around a well coiffed head. Hence you have to understand my slight reservations as I walked into the poshness with my scraggly hair and muddied bag, a result of running through Central London for 2 days straight. Having […]
