I can’t see the word Aesop without thinking of Aesop’s Fables (of course) and I think it’s a pretty cool name for a skincare brand! Aesop’s products have a real apothecary feel to it, they come in vintage looking bottles. My perception was that the range was huge and daunting but looking on the site, there’s actually quite a specific variety of products (ie. foaming facial washes, cream cleanser, cleansing oil etc). The Aesop Parsley […]

The Peripera Crystal range of polishes are particularly pretty; they leave a foiled finish as opposed to a super sparkly, or metallic one which I really like! Crystal Yellow looks yellow on the swatch but it is more og a yellow gold as opposed to a true yellow: There’s such a gorgeous fine shimmer to it!
There’s a reason why I have been avoiding doing lip swatches for a while; because it is such a pain to put lipstick on and take it back off again! I certainly found that it hurt my lips a lot, and they started to hurt and flake after a while. Also I hate how long lasting lipsticks dry and stick to my lips sometimes! Terrible! Then I spotted this teeny product on Adambeauty. It’s called […]
I don’t usually go for pale nail polishes but this Peripera Nail Polish in Crystal Beige looked very wearable with a foil finish: The cat shaped lid will never get old for me! This gold has loads of tiny micro-sparkles which gives it that finished look. It only takes 2 coats to get a really nice finish!
There was a time when I wouldn’t have dreamed of using a leave in hair oil; there’s nothing more horrible than greasy, oily, lanky hair, and no, I can tell when you’ve used dry shampoo because your hair is matte! *shudder* But that’s just me. I loved a bit of Coconut oil as a hair treatment but that was it. Then came along the hair oils, and I started to use them and grow […]
Probably my favourite Peripera polish of all the colours I hauled – P013 Crystal Brown is a beautiful elegant, fine shimmered brown. A lot of the muted colours you can buy these days are quite ‘dead’ and ‘muddy’ aren’t they? Sometimes I feel like a colour that is a bit drab but most of the time…what are nails there for if not to sparkle!?
The green polishes from the Peripera range are gorgeous – real beauties! This is one of the darkest greens from the Smoky range *their spelling of smoky!* – a deep dark forest green. Peripera polishes are nice and fairly easy to apply.
Psoriasis….is not the most glamourous thing to talk about. But if affects many people and like Eczema, it can be a life long condition you have to keep under control. It’s estimates 1.5 million people in the UK are affected by Psoriasis. It is characterised by raised, red patches on the skin although symptoms can vary. I have a lot of experience with eczema in my family and psoriasis because of Mr C. A few […]
