Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

This has helped with bumps that I tend to get around the chin and jaw area. I've previously used Paula's Choice's 2 % BHA (both gel and liquid), and while that worked brilliantly in the beginning, the effect wore off a little over time. Nowadays I go back and forth between this and PC's BHA liquid.

I've also seen a slight improvement in the size of my pores. I …

Fragrance - Dior - Dior Homme

Not reviewing this for ON myself but sort of still for myself, if that makes sense? Dior Homme is my all time favourite men's perfume. One a night out someone walked past a friend and mine a couple of times smelling absolutely heavenly, and we finally pinpointed who it was and stopped him to ask what he was wearing.. He probably thought it was a pick up line but we were both only interested …Read more

Hair Treatments - The Body Shop - Banana Truly Nourishing Hair Mask

4.0

2 months ago

This is my go to cheap-ish deep treatment. The price point is probably more middle range, but compared to other silicone free + cruelty free treatments it's on the cheaper side. I make sure to always have a tub of this at home to use in between using my HG, more expensive treatment (pureology's strength cure superfood treatment)

I have curly, medium course and very dry hair …

Hair Treatments - Pureology - Strength Cure Superfood Treatment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I have curly, medium course and naturally very dry hair. I avoid silicones in my hair care routine, something that has improved my hair's health but also made it super hard to find good treatments that are silicone free + cruelty free (my other criteria).

The price of this treatment is seriously steep, especially since it comes in a small 6 oz / 150gram tub. On the other hand, a …

Eye Shadow - Jordana Cosmetics - Made to Last Liquid Eyeshadow

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

This is a brilliant, inexpensive and long-lasting eyeshadow. I have it in the shade "Not a wink pink", but I find that it looks more gold/bronze than pink. It's intensely shimmery, bordering on glittery but not the chunky kind. I've only used it with a primer underneath as I do any eyeshadow since I have ridiculously crease prone eye lids. With a primer it lasts me all day and …Read more

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - BLITHE Crystal Iceplant Pressed Serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

This wasn't what I thought it would be, but regardless I love how plump and hydrated my skin looks and feels when I use this! I thought it would be a balm-like, rich type of product from the name, but it's more like a (slightly thicker than usual) gel moisturizer.

I use it in the AM only, before my day cream and/or sunscreen. Moisture wise I could probably get away with using …

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

7 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

4.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

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.

7 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
