Monu Spa Bergamot & Orange Shampoo and Jojoba & Lemon Conditioner – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analyses

Hair products are quite interesting for two reasons. Firstly, they started containing a lot of fancy ingredients which most of the time are a waste, as shampoo and conditioners are rinse-off products and the contained ingredients likely don’t get enough time to do anything before they get rinsed off. Secondly, our hair out of the skin is dead. Therefore, such products cannot nourish the hair or do all those miraculous claims. What they can do though is wash and conditionRead more

Estée Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

There are many primers out there but I separate them into two different categories. The ones that help with makeup (mattify the skin, give glow etc) and the ones that are more nutritious for the skin that help the makeup look by elevating the quality of the skin. The Estée Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer is the type of primer that doesn’t have a high nutritional value but can help add a little glow. But does ti work properly and isRead more

Is it worth your money and time? Let’s find out.     Packaging Tarte rarely goes wrong with packaging and this product is not the exception. The serum comes inRead more

Illamasque Hydra Veil Rehydrating Gel Primer – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Matte makeup finishes are great, especially for oily skin, but there is also such thing as too matte. Sometimes if you use too many matte products, especially strong matter foundations, the result can actually create harshness and emphasise texture. As a result, I’ve been looking for a way to add a little dewyness without looking too shiny either. But it’s really hard to achieve that on oily skin! Dewy foundations become too oily and come off quickly and dewy primersRead more

Annabelle Minerals Blush – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

When I was young I used to wear a lot of blush and then I stopped around my mid–twenties which is sort of funny. Young skin is usually more blushed and so wearing blush is one of the easiest, quickest fixes you can do to look younger and more refreshed. Although there are many blushes out there and most of them work well, I think what put me off is the fact that it is hard to find the rightRead more

Percy & Reed Hair Volumising Mousse – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

I’ve recently been liking a product that I never thought would ever come under my radar, the Percy & Reed Volumising Mousse. I usually, 99.99% of the time wear my hair straight but there is the odd moment when I enjoy some curls. Curls however, are hard to wear, especially for my thick unruly hair. They are hard to keep interesting, bouncy and naturally voluminous but the Percy & Reed Volumising Mousse has actually been the great tool for the job.Read more

Kandi Cosmetics Pre Glow Up Mist – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

There are some cosmetics that even the most hardcore of us just don’t need but they look so pretty that we fall under their spell. A perfect example of this is the Kandi Cosmetics Pre Glow Up Mist that looks absolutely gorgeous, like magic in a bottle! But does it translate as gorgeous on the face and is it worth the cash? Let’s find out!     Packaging The Kandi Cosmetics Pre Glow Up Mist comes in a white cardboardRead more

Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Lip Oil Balm – In-depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

Even though I have oily face skin, my lips are as dry as it gets. I’ve been trying many face masks, lip balms and other treatments and nothing really works long term. What’s worse is that if you look further into these things, the reason why they don’t work long term becomes obvious. They don’t nourish the skin, just quickly condition it. As a result, I’ve been looking for a lip product that actually contains ingredients which could nourish theRead more

Hoposo Blackhead Vacuum – Does it work?

Having oily skin, I’ve battled with blackheads, pores the size of craters and texture skin all my life. Despite the fact that oily skin ages/wrinkles slower than dry skin, it somehow never was an advantage. Large pores, contant blackheads and oil production large enough to fry eggs have been the deciding factors for all cosmetic related decitions I’ve made throughout the years. Although I’ve managed to control my oil production completely with proper skincare and makeup, I was never ableRead more
