Skincare I Took to Berlin

Happy Fall! I’m so happy for this new season…are you? I’ve never openly expressed this before (I don’t think) but I would say it’s my favourite season. Summer is great for its long days which makes my photography game strong; but my skin hates it! Now that it’s fall again, my skin is a lot nicer. Behaving. I’ve yet to share my experience of Berlin with you but first: skincare I took to Berlin.  You can also check out this post if you haven’t already: 5 beauty products I took to Berlin.

The Beauty Clean-Up #7 (empties) | HUGE Edition Once Again!

Whoa there. #7? It feels like I’m going through these at a faster rate, the more I go through them! This month has just been empties after empties. It’s interesting because I have this thing where I wait for all of my to-be-empties to actually be empties before I go and make a post about it. I can’t just go and talk about 10 and leave 3 hanging! I did say that this was a clean-up after all, didn’t I?

September Monthly Favourites ft. Superdrug, Essie + LUSH!

Fall is here and I’m so excited for it! It’s not quite cold yet but my wardrobe is slowly transitioning to colder weather. For me, I would always choose fall/winter > spring/summer – my skin loves it, my wardrobe loves it, I love it. 😝 This month, it is undoubtedly, unapologetically, all about skincare with two exceptions. Don’t worry, next month you’ll see me busting out all my Autumn shades in my makeup! (I already dug out two awesome cream shadows last night that I almost forgot about…spoiler alert but maybe you will see them next month?)

5 Beauty Products I Took To Berlin

Before I went to Berlin for a 5-day trip, I had thought to create a post on what I was taking beauty-wise (skincare and makeup). Skincare planning did not go to waste and in fact – I thought I did rather well. (Upcoming post on that soon!) But on the makeup front, I have to admit that I didn’t use everything that I brought with me. It’s silly really, and somehow I do this every time. It’s almost like I have an irrational fear of not having enough makeup with me on my travels! So today, I’m showing you the exact 5 products that I did use during the whole course of my trip to sport a less is more look. Featured in this post: Bobbi Brown SPF 50 Protective Face Base Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Duo in 1 Dark Brown L’Oréal A Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara Dior Addict Lipstick in 871 Power Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder in Pale Yellow I believe all of these products have been previously featured in my favourites post, which …

Review: It’s Skin Collagen Nutrition Eye Cream

I’m back with another review! This time, it’s a K-beauty item that I bought online which you may recognise from my YesStyle Haul post. I’ve been testing it out for over a month – the only eye cream that I’ve been using day and night actually, so I think it’s time to finally do a write-up! Enjoy! 🙂 What is it?  It’s an eye cream that’s part of the It’s Skin Collagen Nutrition skincare line which I’ve never tried before. In fact, I’ve never tried this brand before either. This eye cream (supposedly) promotes elasticity and moisture to the eye-area. How much does it cost? Its actual price seems to be around the £15 mark but I got this on sale on YesStyle for around £6/7. Considering that the tube is 25ml as opposed to the typical 15ml, this is a bargain! Where from? The brand itself is from South Korea. The actual product, I purchased from YesStyle. Who is it for?  When researching the brand, I found it very interesting. So It’s Skin realised the skin …
