Garnier New Launches – First Impressions

Hiya bellas, A few weeks ago I attended the Garnier launch and we got introduced to a few of their new products. Some of them were great and and some of them not so much. I initially wanted to do a review on the Ultimate Blends range and the BB creams but I thought why not show you all of it. Ultimate Blends The Delicate Soother Range For the last year I’ve been using Tresemme Breakage Defense shampoo and conditioner. It hasn’t helped much in preventing my hair from breaking or falling out so much. Why I’ve stuck with it…

Me & Youth Quick Makeup Fix Review – Is it worth the hype?

Hiya bellas, So today I wanted to review the Me & Youth Quick Makeup Fix spray. I’ve been getting a lot of questions about it since my Urban Decay PrepPrimeSet post went up so here’s what I think of it. Who are Me & Youth? Previously known as Beauty Fix for many years, the company got rebranded and Me & Youth was born.

The Body Shop Superfood Face Masks – which ones are worth the spend?

I’m sure by now you’ve seen The Body Shop Superfood Face Masks on blogs and social media. They were launched in the later half of last year and I decided to pick up the Himalayan Charcoal one.

I waited until they had a 3 for 2 sale in last year which saved me quite a bit. I know these masks might be expensive for some, myself included, so let me tell you which ones…

FEATURE – Why I chose Laser Treatments over a Dermaroller

I’ve been seeing at-home Dermaroller kits being sold left and right. Claims of reduced acne, blemishes and scarring, skin rejuvenation and to fight signs of ageing. I’ve had close friends and relatives rave about their success stories but something always held me back. I started searching for the downsides, the negatives, the horror stories. What I found scared me beyond belief and I decided if I was ever going to do it, I’d go to a doctor or trained professional. Just think about it. The Dermaroller punctures good and bad skin. Whilst it might be great for collagen production where…

DIY Blackhead Pore Peel Mask – To peel or not to peel?

Hiya bellas, I’ve finally taken pics of my beauty room and makeup storage which I’ll be sharing with you tomorrow. Today I’m sharing a strange mask that you’ve already probably heard of or seen before. Now the ones on social media are both DIY and actual products you can purchase from various companies. The most well known being the Pilaten, Boscia and Leonie peel mask.  Since we have limited access to those brands, I didn’t want to order from eBay at the risk of getting products that might contain unsavoury ingredients. I saw people whose skin had allergic reactions to…
