Mascara - Unlisted Brand - Idun Minerals - Vatn mascara

I love a big, dramatic lash, but 9/10 mascaras smudge horribly on me so I've resorted to using tubing mascaras for everyday use. This tubing mascara doesn't give fluttery, dramatic lashes, but it adds a fair amount of length at least. The brush is relatively thin and made of rubber bristles. It doesn't separate the lashes as well as the Blinc tubing mascara (which feels like the …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Rituals - Ayurveda Balancing Body Cream

4.0

3 months ago

Got this in a gift pack with the body scrub and the shower oil. It's a fairly rich body cream, but even so it's not too sticky or too slow to sink into the skin. I use it as hand cream sometimes too, and though it's not as moisturizing as Rituals' other hand creams/balms, it definitely does the trick. The scent is very nice but pretty strong, so it's probably not for …Read more

Moisturizers - Deciem - The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane

A true 3.5 product in my opinion, but I'm feeling generous so I'm rounding up. This gave a nice moisture boost to my skin this winter, but it's not a wonder product. I didn't find that it completely eradicated the need for a face oil, but I could alternate between this and a richer oil. I think this might be good for the warmer months of the year as well, when oils feel a bit …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Rituals - The Ritual Of Sakura (previously Zensation) Shower Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

The sakura line is my favourite scent from Rituals along with the Ayurveda line. The sakura scent is floral and flirty without being heavy or cloying. The foam is rich and creamy, perfect for the winter months when the skin tends to get a little more dry. It foams up a lot so a little goes a relatively long way. The packaging is stylishly simple and works well, but probably isn't the most …Read more

Blush - MILANI - Baked Blush - Luminoso

3.0

The peachy shade is flattering, but the gold shimmer is a little too much. It's very pretty in the pan and when swatched, but applied to the cheeks the gold turns a little more glittery and less glowy. It's a little bit chalky too, feels pretty cheap (which it's sort of is to be fair). Pigmented but not the most longwearing. But it's a pretty blush if you're looking for a …Read more

Styling Products - Modern Original Products (MOP) - C-System- C-Curl- Curl Enhancing Cream

5.0

I recently cut off about 25cm/10 inches of my hair and I had to learn how to style a shorter curly hairstyle. The hairdresser used this curl cream on my hair, and I pretty quickly realized I had to get it too. I apply a generous amount into wet hair, twist my hair section by section and then blow dry it with a diffuser. The result is amazing - defined curls that lasts for days! Maybe it partly …Read more

Masks - LUSH - FOMO Jelly Face Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

My skin: Combination skin that is slowly becoming drier as I age, while still being acne prone.

The second jelly mask from Lush that I've tried, the first being 1000 Millihelens. My main issue with that one was that it was so hard to work with, it wouldn't turn into a paste. This one is, for whatever reason, much easier to work with - it turns into a smooth and creamy paste …

Scrubs - Lumene - Pudhas (Purity) Pore Polish Mineral Scrub

4.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

This is the first product that I've tried from Lumene's Puhdas (purity) line, aimed at combination/oily skin. I use a AHA peel once or twice a week (currently the Ordinary's AHA 30% + BHA 2% mask) so I just want a pretty straightforward physical peel to use every now and then. This one certainly does the trick. It has a pretty good amount of "scrubbiness", but it's …Read more

Masks - Paula's Choice - Skin Balancing Oil-Absorbing Mask

3.0

11 months ago

I'm not a huge fan of this mask, but I'm a little surprised by the many 1/5 reviews still. My main gripe with this mask is that it's not quite worth the money. It's clarifying and deeply cleansing, yes, but I can get pretty much the same results from other clay masks. I haven't noticed it doing much for my active breakouts. It's more of a "maintaining" sort …Read more

Shampoo - The Body Shop - Banana Shampoo

3.0

11 months ago

I bought this (stupidly) assuming it was sulfate free since the accompanying conditioner is silicone free, and in my head it makes sense that those two things go hand in hand. It's not sulfate free, but it still feels pretty gentle and non-stripping compared to many other shampoos. For the same reason it doesn't feel very overly drying on my naturally very dry hair. I think it works …Read more
