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 was suffering with mild breakouts and congestion and was hoping it would help. Then I was so impressed by it I decided to purchase them all. 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.

I saw people whose skin had allergic reactions to…

Oh Holy it’s Tonymoly – Sheet Mask, Hand Cream & Panda Eye Review

Please excuse the corny title. I just couldn’t help myself. I wanted to say Holy Moly but then I craved for those little chocolate covered rings of awesomeness I had growing up (80’s babies you know what I’m talking about). Back on topic though, Korean skincare is still a big trend right now. From the pig nose blackhead remover to the egg white soaps for pores, there are some quirky products these brands have come up with. One of those brands is Tonymoly. Background Tonymoly is a South Korean cosmetics brand established in 2006. They have stores around the world…
