Ah! I’ve had this Darphin cleanser FOR-EVER and since it is on it’s last legs, it must mean it’s time to give it a review before it goes to empty skincare heaven. Darphin is a French Skincare brand, one of those high end, luxurious spa feel brands, not unlike Decleor, Elemis et al. The other brands stand out more to me, but Darphin should not be ignored! They have some really lovely products. Like this […]
Melvita is fast becoming one of my favourite brands for reasonably priced, eco-friendly, natural cleansers. Their range is vast with textures and formulas for all skin types. I’ve tried a large selection from the range, most recently two products from their Bouquet Floral Cleansing Range which comes in these snazzy plastic blue bottles: Those cleansers are extra gentle and contain orange blossom floral extract. There’s a milk cleanser, cleansing jelly, foam cleanser, Micellar water, Cleansing […]
As a general rule, I like Elemis very much; it’s an elegant range, everything I’ve tried from it is decent to excellent and I just love the spa feel of the brand (yes, I know it is a spa brand but you know what I mean). One day I will have a bathroom that looks like an Elemis spa. Don’t know how practical that would be, but it’s a dream… Now I have one of […]
About the time that I was expecting Baby H, I noticed a new range from Cussons called Mum & Me – a range of affordable skincare products for mum pre and post pregnancy, and also for babies. I won’t lie – I have stuck to organic products with high quality ingredients for Baby H wherever possible; I don’t see the point of adding unnecessary toxins to something as pure as a little baby. When I […]
Skincare is a difficult thing to review – everyone has different skin concerns and it’s hard to recommend a product sometimes because it just depends on how your skin is at this moment it time… With that in mind I find it hard to recommend skincare products unless I think it’s given me visible results. It’s been a while since that has happened, and as you can imagine, I do get to test a lot […]
A while ago I was sent a sample of a new face wash, JooMo, a natural face wash for teens to try. Obviously I am no teen although I do have sensitive skin so I tried it for a bit then gave it to my cousin Megan, who at 12 and getting to that puberty stage, is the perfect candidate. Here is the packaging – very cute design although the sticker on my tube seemed […]
Etude House, one of the huge Korean cosmetic companies has a range of cleansers called ‘Real Art’- the collection covers everything for your cleansing needs; cleansing oil for dry and oily skin, cleansing foam, cleansing wash. I decided to buy the Cleansing Balm to try simply because it sounded different and I’ve had good experiences with balms in the past. See that? It’s the Mona Lisa!
Hallo, hallo, hallo! How glad am I that it’s finally Friday. It has been an extremely long week! One thing I have been keen on doing this week is trying different skincare out because of my increasingly spotty but also sensitive skin. In this case I am thinking that simple is better. I know my skin can’t handle too many anti-aging or active ingredients. SANA Hadanomy Collagen skincare has been around for a while now, […]
