    Clinique Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator

    Over the weekend, I was talking to someone on Twitter about how long I had been blogging. I go way back to 2005 when I blogged on MSN Spaces about travel. I moved that travel blog to MySpace in 2007 and a couple of years later, it became a lifestyle blog on Blogspot. After being a book blogger for a couple of years, I then moved into beauty in 2013 and that was a culture shock. More on that in another post but there was this thing that beauty bloggers did back then where they would post pictures of their empty bottles and tubes of products they were using or…

    Dr.’s Remedy Nail Polish and Remover – With Garlic?! – Review

    Today I want to share a story about my experiences with Dr.’s Remedy nail care products. Believe it or not, this blog started as an ethical beauty website, so perhaps this is me going back to basics? I would consider myself to be a girlie-girl, even if I’m not someone who is always caked in make-up. In fact, the only make-up I wear on a daily basis is eyebrow powder, on account of me not really having any eye-brows. I’ll wear lipstick 90% of the time but everything else? I can take it or leave it. If I wore make-up every day, how would I look any different when I’m…

    A to Z Blogging Challenge: E is for Electrolysis

    It’s day 5 of the A to Z Blogging Challenge and after yesterday’s ode to Christmas, I’m now writing about a beauty treatment. Or is this a tech post? I honestly can’t tell. But if you’re interested in beauty tech, this could be the post for you. E is for electrolysis. The Background For those who don’t know, I struggled to eat solid food as a teenager. There was an extended period of time when I was on a liquid diet. I had countless people assume I was anorexic and who could blame them? All they saw was a teenage girl who wasn’t eating. They didn’t know the reasons why,…

    JML Finishing Touch Flawless Review

    I’m going to talk about something that many ladies deal with but don’t talk about – facial hair. I’d be willing to bet the majority of us have that soft downy peach fuzz. Unfortunately, if you’re pale skinned and dark haired like me, that peach fuzz is not as cute as it sounds. It’s embarrassing and annoying. For my birthday this year, my son gave me a Finishing Touch Flawless, because every time the ad came on TV for the last few months, I would say “Oooh I need that.” I have not been paid for this review and nobody has given me any compensation, so it is based solely…

    GHD Heat Protect Spray Review

    Last week, I found myself blogging my soul inside out. This week, I’m back to writing beauty reviews. Such is the life of a writer! However, I always choose which products I want to write about and I never write about a product I don’t already have in my home. This is no different. I’ve been using GHD Heat Protect Spray for years and before that I used their iron oil. As someone who straightens every day, this is a product I can speak about with some authority. I buy a 120ml bottle from Amazon, mostly because it’s not available in high street shops like Superdrug. However, if your local…
