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…

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…

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…

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?:…

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/…

Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm: REVIEW

The brand: British, well known for this cleanser. Cruelty free (obvs) The product: Balm cleanser Who can use it: If you’re really acneic then maybe give it a miss, but my spot prone skin loves it mostly. Other than that, anyone can use. Cruelty Free Status/ Vegan?: Fully CF, PETA approved. Not vegan (this balm…

Balance Me, Congested Skin Range

The Congested range at Balance Me is a particular highlight for me. I’m massively impressed with the products, which tackles blemishes whilst remaining loyal to ‘natural’ ingredients. Often when I think of ‘congested skin’ products I think salicylic acid and alcohol, but these products are a great alternative to this. You might like to look…
