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 […]
This extremely random kit is from Taiwan and is a pore cleanser and blackhead removal kit. These kits are extremely popular in Asia – I have purchased quite a few 3 pieces sets that have a sebum softener, a mask and finishing essence that tightens the pores. This one is from a brand called Sexylook and features strawberries! Why?! THe blackhead look is known as the ‘strawberry nose’. This 3 piece set contains a sebum […]
I’ve had issues with blackheads for a while, mainly over my nose areas but sometimes my chin. It’s a real pain always having to use things like masks and pore strips! With Asian brands, you’ll find tons of products specifically created to deal with the blackhead problem, so perhaps some girls are prone to this. I can imagine in Asia, where it is hot and humid people are more likely to sweat and get blocked […]
There should be a drinking game where people have to consume as much alcohol as possible and the last person still able to say “Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Olive Cleansing Oil Review” gets £50. Well, I am officially a cleanser hoarder, and a few months ago purchased this Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Olive Cleansing Oil. Hada Labo is a drug store, high street, whatever you want to call it skincare brand […]
Clearasil is not my usual skincare choice (lets be honest!) but as I absolutely ADORE Neutrogena 2 in 1 Wash & Masks so I though it would be fun to test the Clearasil Ultra All In 1 Wash & Mask. New Clearasil Ultra All in 1 Wash and Mask starts working instantly to fight the causes of spots and breakouts. Use this product in two ways – as a daily cream to help control breakouts, […]
Another day, another mascara! This time the mascara I am testing is from Paula’s Choice; Illicit Lash Maximum Impact Mascara is supposed to create long, soft, dramatic lashes that will not smudge, flake or clump. It comes with a long rubbery spiky brush. The mascara: As you know by now, I have very mixed results with mascara, but I can usually pull a few positive points from most of the ones I try.
I’ve been varying my skincare a lot lately, depending on what I feel that it needs and one of my most used cleansers is this lovely release from Elemis, the Melting Cleansing Gel: This cleanser is similar to cleansing oil, but in a gel form. You apply it to dry skin and then add water. The product then turns into a milky liquid to rinse off. Using scientific dual-phase technology, this ultra purifying cleanser is […]
2011 is the year I take care of my skin, as so far I have been far to focused on other things to remember to remove make up and slap on serums every night. My skin is certainly looking worse for wear, with dry patches and the first signs of CROWS FEET – HELLO!?!?! So this year, I am going to take that little bit of time to cleanse properly, to moisturise, to use eye […]
