Beauty

Working in the beauty industry, we love trying out the latest, trending products in skincare and makeup. We feature the best skincare products for sensitive skin.

We highlight the best skincare for sensitive skin focusing on natural beauty products where possible; especially focusing on the best skincare for redness sensitive skin.

Clinique Moisture Surge 72 Hours

    Ever since Clinique launched their new Moisture Surge 72 hours I have been obsessed. It has become a non-negotiable in my beauty routine, with nothing else quite like it!   I have been using it day and night and it is the perfect thing on its own, over a face oil or mixed in with my Tan-Luxe. The texture is light, watery and sinks in almost immediately which makes it perfect for the everyday. The fact that it is so hydrating, keeping water in your skin for over 72 hours, even if you wash your face in between…

The Glossier Review

  Glossier is a brand that I have long been a fan of from afar. Though I had managed to pick up a few things here and there through friends over in the USA I was ridiculously excited to hear Glossier were hosting a pop-up in London. The space itself was very cool, dressed everywhere in millennial pink and various different spaces to chill out, to test out the products and to smell the fragrance. I ended up going for the Milky Jelly Cleanser, Wowder powder, Haloscope and the stretch concealer.      The Milky Jelly Cleanser I have been using the…

The 8 Winter Skincare Saviours

  Winter in all of its cold glory has definitely arrived here in London and although I am much more of a summer lover, over the years I have grown to also enjoy the winter. Something I continue to dislike about the arrival of the cold weather is the way in makes my skin feel so a winter skincare routine is essential. This used to be a bigger issue for me a few years ago with sensitive skin paired with the dryness that London winters bring equaling chaos. However the last year and a half I have really found some winter…

How I Got a White Smile in a Week

    For me, although I have never felt as though I had particularly yellow teeth, with all the coffee and herbal teas I drink I was beginning to worry about the effect it was having. I had tried out whitening strips a few times for a white smile but other than that I haven’t ever really tried any teeth whitening systems so when Smile Brilliant approached me to collaborate I felt curious enough to give it a go.    Firstly I loved how professional and well thought out the whole whitening system was; catering for sensitive teeth, and providing…

MY PM Cleansing Routine

  I have recently changed up my PM cleansing skincare routine and I have found it has made such a big difference to my skin that I had to share! It all started with the Clinique Sonic brush which was kindly gifted to me and I decided to try out. I had tried out the Clarisonic a few years ago and although I liked it, I did feel that overall it felt quite harsh on my skin so I eventually stopped using it.   However over the last few months, I had really been feeling as though it needed a…

Beauty Sleep with Skin Laundry

         It is no secret to any of those who know me that I love to go to bed early and wake up before anyone else! I have also recently found some tools that have really enhanced my beauty sleep by working magically while I sleep working on anti-ageing, smoothness and even improving the clarity of my skin. The one product that really kicked off all this was the Skin Laundry sleepcycle pillow case.    THE CLAIMS: The SleepCycle™ Pillowcase is treated with charged silver ion technology that provides a natural antimicrobial effect to help reduce the presence…

My Summer Beauty Favourites

   Although I have been vegan for over 2 years, fashion and beauty for me were and continue to be one of the areas where I have to put in the most research to find cool products that actually work and just so happen to be vegan too. I love to try out new skincare and makeup so my list of beauty favourites is constantly evolving which I suppose is natural, particularly as I get older and my needs may change.  On my bathroom sink: JorgOrbe white tea balancing cream, Aesop Resurrection Hand Wash, Tan-luxe the face, Skin & Tonic naked beauty…

My Simple Eyes Routine

Today I thought I would share with you my simple eye routine…a look I might wear to work or if I am out and about. To be completely honest, although I love beauty I can generally be quite lazy when it comes to my makeup so for me my products need to be easy to use, quick and vegan of course! This means on the average day I wear little makeup but what I do wear really has to last. I’m not joking when I say my eyes routine is simple; it only has only 2 steps…eyeliner and  mascara! So first…

The Soapwalla Review

It is always exciting when you get to try out some new skincare, particularly when the brand’s founder is so incredibly inspiring! As well as having the absolute pleasure of interviewing Rachel; founder of Soapwalla we got the opportunity to try out some of the gorgeous Soapwalla products so we thought we would share what we thought! First things first we love how the focus behind the brand is really on natural ingrediants, with a refusal of chemicals and artificial perservatives in each and everyone of the products. All of the products are also vegan which makes things even easier…
