In the unlikely situation of getting hot & sweaty: KOKURYUDO Ice Remake Spray Review


Thought I better get this one in quickly before the British summer disappears any more. Whaddya mean, it’s already dead, finished, over?! It’s true, summer lasted about 7 days in the UK. When it was hot however, I quickly purchased this Ice Remake Spray made by KOKURYUDO (no I haven’t had to use it again). KOKURYUDO ‘s Ice Remake Spray is an interesting product – this is a facial refresher or spritz that removes oiliness […]

Art Deco Safari Beauty Box Trio Eyeshadow Palette for Summer 2010


I have encountered Art Deco Eyeshadows before, although, it’s been a while since I bought anything from the range. As part of their Summer 2010 Safari Collection comes this Limited Edition box with three eyeshadows. The shades are brown, bronze and gold – perfect for a glowy but natural look: You normally buy an empty box palette, then add the eyeshadows, blushers, concealers, foundation etc. of your choosing. With this collection you can buy the […]

Sunscreen Special Day 5: Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base SPF 50+


The last sunscreen I have purchased recently is Biore’s UV Aqua Rich Watery Mousse in SPF 50. Biore products (from Asia and especially Japan) and fabulous and quite frankly better than the ranges they have over in the UK. For example, the nose strips are stronger and more effective (Asia release) than the UK versions. No idea why… I got this because I wanted a SPF for the face with SPF 50 that had a […]

Sunscreen Special Day 4: Skinfood Quince Whitening Sun Lotion SPF 34 Review


How is it possible for me to not buy a skincare item that has Quince in it! This is Quince: Korres, of course did a Quince Lip Balm although it just smelt sort of apple-y and pear-y to me. Anyway, the purchase was this – Skinfood’s Quince Whitening Sun Lotion. Not only will it protect, it will whiten too and brighten too. Honest. With a generous SPF 34 and 70ml of product, I treated this […]

Sunscreen Special Day 3: Skinmedica Environmental Defense Sunscreen SPF 30


When I first got this Sunscreen in the post, I didn’t rush to open it – didn’t look very exciting, I sort of forgot about it for a while. Skinmedica’s Environmental Defense Sunscreen SPF 30 is apparently excellent for mature skins and especially good if you need a SPF post surgical procedure. This doesn’t apply to me *touch wood* at the moment, but it didn’t stop me from giving it a test run. Even though […]

Sunscreen Special Day 2: Creme De La Mer The SPF UV Protecting Fluid SPF 30


You can’t argue with a touch of luxury, even if it is something like your sunscreen. I am personally a fan of La Mer – I love their foundation, their lipbalm, their face cream. They work well for me. But without a doubt its pricey stuff! They say about Creme De La Mer’s The SPF UV Protecting Fluid with an SPF of 30: Tourmaline and Malachite help absorb light energy, turning it into green light, […]

Lips of the Day: MAC To The Beach Lip Pencil in Temperature Rising


I bought about 7 items from the MAC To The Beach collection because it looks so damn cute – overall I am disappointed with most of it – the cream bronzer, the lip stick (beach bound – doesn’t look like ANYTHING on me) etc. I do like the eye kohls and the lip gloss. This lipliner from the collection is called Temperature Rising. God knows why, but I thought it would be a chubby lip […]

Sunscreen Special Day 1: Skinfood Green Coffee Sun Screen SPF 50


I love Skinfood’s creative creations (all their cosmetics and skincare are based on food) so being a coffee addict, I had to pick up this Green Coffee Sun Screen SPF 50 from eBay (where else?). Green Coffee is supposed to be high in anti oxidants – the fact that this SPF is 50 was appealing too. Remember, anti- age, anti age! This sunscreen is a liquid type that needs a good shake before you use […]
