Indeed Labs hydration range

I’ve done a full review of hydraluron, their staple hydrating serum and most well-known product. But, I thought their whole hydrating range was worth talking about. Indeed Labs are a young, small brand. And they don’t create product for the sake of it. Everything I have tried from them has been a hit. I love…

Herbivore Phoenix Oil: Review

The brand: Natural, new, ‘clean’, vegan. The product: Rosehip based facial oil. Who can use it: Best for drier more mature skins, but my oily face loved it. Good for all. Cruelty Free Status/ Vegan?: Fully CF, and vegan. Ingredients: SIMMONDSIA CHINENSIS (JOJOBA) SEED OIL, ROSA CANINA (ROSEHIP) SEED OIL, LIMNANTHES ALBA (MEADOWFOAM) SEED OIL,…

Sunday Riley Luna: Review

The brand: ‘Natural’, been around for a while. I’m doing this review of Luna with a focus on acne skin types, because I know it’s been reviewed to death. The product: Vitamin A (retinol) treatment oil. Who can use it: Best for maturer skins, but with so many of these oils, I think it would…

Scent of the month (september): Body Shop Oils of Life

Yes, this scent of the month is a cleanser. I use this to take my makeup off and OMG IT SMELLS AMAZING. It’s like an end-of-summer-dirty-tan kind of smell. I’m assuming the rest of the range smells the same, in which case go and have a sniff in the shop. Try it, this tube of…

five of the best: hydrating toners/mists

Instantly gratifying, and good to use after an acid toner for some skin balance, hydrating toners are a nice addition to a skincare routine. Partcularly because of their lightness (it’s literally a water), you can keep layering them on throughout your routine or the day-to-day. A hydrating mist isn’t going to change your life, but…

Pixi, Rose Tonic: REVIEW

Zelens Power D: Review

The brand: No animal testing, doctor brand. No fluff here. The product: Serum/oil, described as ‘Supercharged and vitamin-rich, this treatment serum is potent and deeply penetrative’ For who?: All skin types, didn’t make my oily skin any oilier of greasy. I think this oil would be best used on a more damaged or mature skin,…

May Lindstrom Problem Solver: REVIEW

The brand: American, organic, luxury, expensive. The product: A clay mask. Well, the powder part. You add the water in and it’s an active clay mask. Who can use it: People with a thick skin and willingness for a bit of a burn. Avoid if you’re sensitive, rosacea, prone to redness. Cruelty Free Status/ Vegan?:…

Skincare routine, when skin is spotty (cruelty free)

This is my go-to routine when my skin is at it’s worst. Stubborn acne, spots that are red and sore, usually caused by hormones. If I’ve eaten too much dairy, about to start my period or my skin has just decided to be spotty I take a bit of extra care. I avoid my more…

Pixi, Glow Mud Cleanser: REVIEW

The brand: Widely available, always been cruelty free, you know em! The product: Clay based cleanser. They say; ‘active yet gentle cleanser with 5% glycolic acid’. Active and gentle, which is true: but quite contradicting terms don’t you think? Who can use it: All skins, unless you’re very sensitive to glycolic acid. Cruelty Free Status/…
